Owners of Springfield's MacArthur Park Apartments say the city's been unresponsive in some of its efforts to clean up the complex.
Don Craven, representing Green Management in a series of ongoing code violation cases in administrative court, says the company is fixing many violations based on an approved time table -- but that's not been enough to keep up.
"Some of those buildings we had repaired multiple times, only to have people come out and break in to steal new copper piping once we had it installed."
Craven says the company last year offered the city a no cost, fully equipped space to use as a police substation for up to ten years -- which it re-offered a couple of months ago. There's so far been no response, and a city spokesman confirms the idea of a police substation next to MacArthur Park's leasing office is not currently under consideration.
