Apartment Power Restored; Residents Can Stay 12-15-2010

Residents in one Saginaw housing complex wondering why they were left in the cold were greeted with some good news, thanks to TV5's efforts.
Just hours after our original story aired, the power was turned back on to their complex, which meant they didn't need to move out after all.
According to residents at McGregor Manor, 1720 S. Michigan Avenue, their power was unexpectedly shut off Tuesday night as temperatures dipped into the single digits.
To make matters worse, the city of Saginaw condemned the building because the living conditions are too dangerous.
City inspectors said some residents who still had electricity were using stove burners to stay warm.
“I know it sounds like an awful thing to do -- to throw them out of their apartment,” said city inspector Rob Davis. “But it is extremely cold, even inside.”
Davis said each resident could have been given state issued emergency moving funds to help them find housing elsewhere.
The seven residents living at McGregor Mannor were told they need to be out by 5 p.m. Wednesday, but now only one resident is considering a move to a new location.
