WGEM reporter Drew Brown worked on this report. It will air this Thursday, November 1, 2018.

“Some Quincy residents are living with holes in walls and roach infestations.
Poverty is real and according to the U.S. Census Bureau 12 point 8 percent of people Adams County are living in poverty.
Although, many work and pay rent they still live in subpar housing because the city doesn’t have a rental inspection program and without support from city council landlords are not being held accountable.”
WGEM’s Drew Brown will be Digging Deeper into the issue of dangerous rentals, Thursday on WGEM News at Ten.
