Stolen HVAC Units Could Stall Move-In For Pottstown Senior Center

POTTSTOWN, PA — After three HVAC units were stolen from the new Pottstown Area Senior Center, the proposed move-in date is now in doubt.

Brad Fuller, the executive director at the center, said the units were stolen some time between Sunday afternoon and early Monday morning from 288 Moser Road.

“The contractors discovered they were missing,” Fuller said.

As of right now, the center hopes to move its offices into the building on Dec. 20, but the stolen units were used to heat that portion of the building, Fuller said.

The center is currently using the Berean Bible Church as a temporary space during the transition from its old space at the YMCA at 724 N. Adams St.

On top of chunks falling off the façade and fluids leaking into the underground parking garage, over the weekend there was a flood on the sixth floor of the Berks County Services Center building that also damaged the fourth and fifth floors.  A broken water valve was the culprit.  Damage is estimated at half a million dollars.  $100,000 went specifically for the cleanup and $400,000 for the renovations the restore the building back to working order.

There are several hundred valves in the building that will be inspected after this disaster to hopefully avoid any repeats.  Good idea!

Fortunately, insurance will pay all but $50,000 of the damage.
