Cindy Schneider, 59, who is disabled, sitting in her federally subsidized apartment at Garden Grove Apartments in Ogden, Utah. In August the apartments were about to undergo construction by Kier Property Management and she was worried she would be displaced as a result of it. Despite management’s reassurances prior to construction, she was served with eviction notice a few months later when she was unable to make rent. Schneider, who suffers from severe anxiety attacks, landed in the hospital on Nov. 2 and returned home the evening of Nov. 5. She says that the renovations caused the stress that landed her in the hospital and made her unable to pay her rent on time.
