BRIDGEPORT - Dozens of Bridgeport residents who live in a city-owned housing complex say they have had trouble staying warm this winter.
Residents say the faulty heating system at Trumbull Gardens is leaving them in the cold.
Bridgeport Housing Authority Executive Director Nicholas Calace says the system has a re-occurring history of breaking because of failing equipment parts and major weather events.
Documents show that one apartment was as low as 62 degrees, which violates a state law requiring the minimum temperature for housing to be at 65 degrees.
Health experts say not maintaining a temperature of at least 68 degrees in a home can cause hypothermia for babies and the elderly. They also say using gas ovens and stovetops for heat can cause carbon monoxide poisoning.
