PARKCHESTER - Tenants at a condominium complex in Parkchester are angry after learning that their maintenance charges are going up.

Tenants at the Parkchester Sound Condominium buildings say the board of managers is upping the fee more than 15 percent. They say they were not given any notice of the increase.

Board members say the raise in fees was needed to make necessary repairs that were not taken care of by the previous board.

Angry tenants reached out to elected leaders for help. That resulted in a town hall meeting filled with about 500 people, except board members. The tenants are still holding out hope to get answers from the board in an effort to fight the hike.

Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda's office says letters have been sent to the board and the attorney general about the matter.
