Tenants in limbo

Stephen Lloyd Wood

Timber Ridge tenants living in units found in need of mold remediation were told they need to relocate to other units in the 25-year-old complex. Some tenants have already moved into refurbished units.”They haven’t worked on my place yet. They’ve told me they have to finish work in another apartment for us,” Morena Watson, a housekeeping supervisor for Vail Resorts who lives with a couple of roommates in the complex’s C Building, said Wednesday. “For us, it’s OK – and it’s good to get an upgraded apartment.”The town of Vail’s community relations directors, Suzanne Silverthorn, said even before mold was identified as a problem at Timber Ridge, there were no complaints from tenants. And Watson and other tenants confirmed that, saying they’re unaware of any mold in their units.”We’ve not seen any mold,” said Victor Hernandez, who shares an apartment in the F Building.Hernandez, who works for McDonald’s, said he and his roommates received a letter saying they’d have to move to another unit soon, too – but when or which unit has yet to be determined.”I like it here, but I am looking forward to moving,” he said.Rick Wooddell, who works for the Vail Cascade Resort & Spa and lives in the E Building, said he’s still waiting to find out whether he’ll have to move.”It hasn’t hit me yet,” he said Wednesday returning from doing a load of laundry. “They said it “might’ happen. I have no idea if or when.”
