Better safe than sorry?

From the Daily News:

A leaky pipe forced the shutdown of gas service to 249 apartments in a Queens housing project, the head of the tenants association said Saturday.

Residents of the Pomonok Houses in Flushing were warned that repairs could take up to two months, said irate association president Monica Corbett.

She said the gas service was shut down Thursday around 10 p.m., with NYCHA workers going from apartment to apartment to disconnect stoves and cap the pipes. NYCHA gave the residents hot plates.

Utility companies are a small step above government-run operations.

I wonder how many illegals live in these projects?

I went to jr and sr high with lots of kids from those buildings. It was good people back in the day.

Up to two months? What sort of "repair" could take up to two months?

evict all of them, make the Russians and Vietnamese go home, tear down the buildings and erect Luxury condos. those bums in NYCHA are paying miniscule rents.

they don't deserve gas to run their stoves at all.

hot plates are too good for those bums.
