AIM Wins Apartment Upgrades & Mold Remediation for 800 Renters

Seeking redress for deplorable conditions in their apartments, tenants of Northwest Park and leaders from Action in Montgomery (AIM) spent the last year organizing to hold Kay Management accountable for reoccuring mold and persistent problems with rodents, bed bugs, and cockroaches that have triggered or exacerbated asthma problems. After the discovery of over 2,000 housing violations, tenants and AIM have worked to get a number of improvements, the latest of which was a commitment from Kay Management to replace all 1,950 windows in the 800-unit complex over the next four years and overhaul their policy for preventing and remediating mold.
