OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The owner of Yale Park Apartments, Kay Anderson, will be back in front of city officials Thursday at a property maintenance appeals meeting. The apartment complex was shut down back in September for numerous violations, leaving many without a home.

In May, Anderson got approval to rent out four units. At that time he was given 90 days to get units in a second building fixed up and inspected. Chief Housing Inspector Scott Lane estimated the cost to fix the repairs is up to several million dollars.

Anderson still faces misdemeanor charges and a civil lawsuit after more than 500 people were forced out of their apartments when city inspectors found thousands of code violations at the complex last September. Anderson pleaded not guilty to those misdemeanor charges back in March.

Today's hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. We will stream it live on Facebook, on our website at https://www.3newsnow.com/live2 and on the 3 News Now apps for streaming and mobile devices.
