KANSAS CITY, KS (KCTV) - People living in a KCK apartment complex are trying to find out what is causing their moldy mess.

About 60 residents from the Rosedale Ridge Apartments showed up Tuesday night at Rainbow Mennonite Church for a town hall-style meeting to learn if that mold will force them out by Dec. 1. They've been dealing with this mold problem since September. 

Many left feeling the meeting frustrated and even more in limbo. They are fed up with their questions going unanswered.

"My big concern was us being out in the cold on Dec. 1. I haven't seen them to fix nothing," resident Tamia Thomas said.

YARCO Property Management, the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, KS, and the Rosedale Development Association hoped to answer concerns related to the mold and other rental license violations.

But more than once, meeting organizers had to stop taking questions and calm the neighbors down.

A Unified Government representative offered a solution to the mold problem.

"They cannot get to them all at once. I would suggest that you invest $12 at the hardware store and you buy a product that absorbs the moisture out of the air," said the representative, whose comment was met with outrage.

KCTV5 News tried talking to YARCO and got the following statement:

"We are unwavering in our commitment to meet the requirements of the Unified Government by Dec. 1."

They are holding another meeting next Monday at 6:30 p.m. at the church to give more people a chance to talk.
