ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta’s mayor says a church-owned apartment building for low-income residents, who say it continues to be unbearably hot, is not completely fixed.

CBS 46 reports (https://bit.ly/1M713qg) that Mayor Kasim Reed on Wednesday evaluated five apartments, saying the building is “reasonably cool,” but some units have problems.

Reed said he thinks the problem is “more than 90 percent fixed.”

Residents say the sweltering heat inside is continuing, despite assurances from building managers that the air conditioning has been fixed.

Residents have pleaded with Friendship Baptist Church, which owns the building, to fix what tenants call a faulty air conditioning system.

The Associated Press’ phone calls and emails to church officials have not been returned.

Reed said the plan now is to look into whether residents who want to move can do so.
