Carrion demands answers from city groups about ongoing heat issues

The borough president met with city officials Wednesday to demand answers about the ongoing heat issues plaguing the Bronx.

Bronx and city residents are required by law to have heat once the temperature drops outside. But heat troubles continue to be a problem with the Bronx accounting for 30 percent of the city's heat complaints. In December alone, Bronx residents made more than 6,000 complaints.

That's why Borough President Adolfo Carrion Jr. is asking both the Department of Housing, Preservation and Development, and the New York City Housing Authority to do something about the problem.

Residents having heat troubles can call the city's hotline at 311 or the borough president's office at (718) 590-3554.
