BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The city of Boise has halted the remodel of an apartment complex that formerly housed mostly refugees because the owners do not have the proper permits.

City spokesman Mike Journee tells KTVB-TV (https://bit.ly/1rqskh5 ) that officials discovered the lack of permits while inspecting various renovation projects at Glenbrook Apartments. The city has since put up signs requiring contractors to stop work on the renovations.

Late last year, Verity Property Management notified most tenants that their month-to-month leases would not be renewed. Furthermore, tenants were alerted the renovation would cause the complex to up its rents by hundreds of dollars.

The project sparked outcry from the community, and Mayor Dave Bieter made several requests to the owners to give tenants more time to move out.

Glenbrook Apartment owner Caran Daly declined to comment.
