At least 13 residents of Hamilton's Henry Long Towers have been treated at the ER for respiratory illness, apparently due to black mold that has innundated the building. That claim was made this week by resident Paul Trinka, who told Hamilton City Council about the issue during their regular meeting. Henry Long Tower is a seven story, 129 unit public housing high rise on North B Street, overlooking the Great Miami River and downtown Hamilton. Trinka says the mold is coming from the heating and air conditioning units, and is spreading to the walls and ceilings of the apartments. Trinka also says there is a roach and bedbug infestation inside the building. Trinka told council the building's supervisors have been masking the problem by painting over the mold, and moving residents in the apartments most affected by the mold.
