Broken elevators at Waterfall High Rise left tenants angry and frustrated.

ELKHART — For nearly two weeks, broken elevators at the Waterfall High Rise have forced senior residents, some disabled or using a cane, to climb up and down stairs, but help is coming, officials promise.

The Elkhart Housing Authority, which manages the 10-story high rise at 303 Waterfall Drive east of downtown, says neither one of the two elevators has been working since Aug. 26.

The city should be forced to find other accommodations for all residents until the elevators are repaired/replaced. It is not safe to live there if a resident has physical disabilities which most do.


I don't believe the City has any say over the operation of the Waterfall High Rise! I believe it is federally operated under HUD!
