Lake County Housing Authority crews Monday finished repairs on a malfunctiong door buzzer system at the three-story John Kuester Manor apartment for residents 55 and older, Executive Director David Northern said. Residents in the 25-unit public housing building in Wauconda were unable to use their buzzers to let in visitors since lightning struck a tree in front of building Aug. 4, damaging the front entrance glass door and automatic locking entry system. Northern said it took until Monday for the housing authority to receive the necessary parts to get the locking mechanism working again at the 29-year-old structure.
