UTICA - The City of Utica is taking aggressive action against Olbiston Apartments, on Genesee Street, for failing to comply with a New York State Supreme Court order.

The order required property management to repair or replace the complex's main entrance front steps by June 30, provide written proof of secured financing to repair the roof, and proof they moved upper-floor tenants to lower floors by July 12 due to the leaky roof.

The city ordered the complex to move all fourth- and fifth-floor tenants to lower apartments back in May, due to the severely-damaged roof.

Attorney David Longeretta says he plans to file a motion to hold Olbiston in contempt of court for failing to comply with State Supreme Court Justice Bernadette Clark's order. Longeretta says he plans to file the motion next week.

NewsChannel 2 has reached out to the owners of Olbiston Apartments for comment.
