Apartment owners given 75 days to fix issues

Owners of the Wood Ridge Apartments in East Austin were given an ultimatum Monday night.

The city's Building and Standards Comission gave David Andrews, of La Jolla, California, 75 days to make needed repairs to 10 of the 15 buildings at the complex.

Code compliance officers told the board that five of the 15 buildings had already been repaired, and they lifted the "vacate" order on Monday, allowing residents to return to their homes at the apartments' discretion - nearly three weeks after they had been forced from their homes after a balcony collapsed and officers found several safety violations at the complex.

The owner of the complex had been seeking 120 days to make the needed repairs.
