Mold problems in some Augusta apartments are hard to control: city officials say

Mold problems in some homes and apartments in Augusta are difficult to control because of the region’s humid weather, Commissioner Mary Davis said.

Davis said a code enforcement worker will inspect property and notify the landlord if the tenet files a complaint, as a few of the tenants living at Fox Den apartments did some months back. She stressed that a code enforcement worker can’t inspect a property without being asked to so.

Augusta is ‘destined’ to thrive: EDA chief says

Augusta is “destined” to thrive as hundreds more jobs and an increasing number of business opportunities are coming to the city, Augusta Economic Development Authority’s chairman Henry Ingram said.

Noting that several companies, such as Elanco, Unisys, Sitel and Textron, chose Augusta over others cities as their destination to grow and thrive, Ingram stressed that Augusta wanted to be a ‘destination community.’

Ingram attributed the city’s success in attracting a growing number of companies to availability of strong infrastructure and trained workforce.
