New boiler ordered for Schuylerville apartments without heat for weeks

SCHUYLERVILLE – A Schuylerville apartment complex is going on nearly two weeks without heat in the frigid temperatures we’ve had.

Now we’re being told a new boiler will be installed on Tuesday. The hope is that the heat will then start working again.

Some tenants say maintenance was there over the weekend.

For the time being, the nearly 20 residents have been given space heaters by management. However, some of them say they don’t keep them on overnight because they’re scared it will start a fire – especially after the apartment fire that broke out in the Bronx a few weeks ago.

The age range for people living in this building is large, from kids all the way up to elderly people.
