Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- With hundreds of yards of fencing, the Gardens at Cloverland look something like a ghost town.
Items and trinkets are still lying around the complex. Residents--for the most part--are kicked out.
"I don't have anything but the clothes that I worked in," said Tessa Youngblood.
WSFA spoke with Youngblood back in May, when she moved into a renovated apartment.
Now, she's locked out and says the property manager never gave her proper notice to leave.
"He said he put notes on our doors. I work every day. He didn't give me no note," Youngblood said.
The fencing is part of an effort by the property owners to set things straight.
The city says a local construction company has been hired to fix the apartments. That is, of course, if a judge doesn't order their demolition. City leaders are skeptical.
"We begged them to bring [the buildings] up to city code, and they had plenty of opportunity to do so, and yet, did not do so," explained Martha Roby of the Montgomery City Council.
A proposal--soon to be introduced in court--shows plans to bring the buildings up to Federal code.
