Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- Action News is helping residents of a Henderson apartment complex who are still dealing with storm damage.
Crews are finally repairing a parking structure that collapsed at the Crystal Creek Apartments on West Warm Springs Road near Green Valley Parkway during a series of storms in July.
"If it wasn't for you guys, nothing would've been done," said renter Jesse Colosky.
Colosky said his family notified the main office about the problem. But after two weeks of looking at debris, he emailed Action News.
"It's nice to actually see them doing something around here," said Colosky. "I'm just grateful to you guys that they're actually getting it done now."
People who live near the structure were concerned about safety, especially with children around.
"There's a lot of kids that like to play around and skateboard out here," said renter Derrick Singleton during an interview last Wednesday. "I don't know if they actually play under here but it's dangerous if there's kids around."
Action News took the concerns to the main office.
Complex manager Audrey Fukao blamed the repair delays on issues with bids for a contractor. During our last visit on July 31, management promised to address the issue. Colosky said crews came out the same day to put support beams under the structure and crews started repairs a day later.
Fukao said management was able to negotiate with a contractor to get moving soon after our visit. Crews had to replace three poles and five panels. Fukao said work should be finished within about a week.
