JOPLIN, Mo. - The management at the Ford Lofts in Joplin work to address the elevator issues in the apartment building.
Fairway Management sent an elevator vendor to repair the vandalized elevator, which had been out of service for more than a week and caused frustration for many disabled and elderly tenants who had trouble using the stairs.
Management staff provided each tenant with a new contact number and a gift card to apologize for the delay, and are manually operating the elevator to get residents up and down the building.
They're waiting on one more part to finish the elevator repair, which they will receive tonight, and management expects the elevator to be operating as usual by 11 A.M.
