We do not come out nights or weekends to change or replace light bulbs. The charge for opening a door after hours is $50.00. If you have an emergency, please call, and leave your name, address, phone number and details about your emergency. For all other maintenance concerns, please call the office and leave a message, and we will take care of it during the normal work week.

Maintenance Reminders

  • PLEASE! Do not flush anything in toilets but toilet tissue. Do not pour grease down the drains in the kitchen or bathroom.
  • The city Street and Sanitation Department have informed us that all trash bags and trash that is not in the trash container will not be picked up. If you have trash that is left beside the curb and our staff must remove it, you will be fined.
  • Tenants, to expedite your concerns, please call or email staff members that you need to see to make an appointment prior to coming to the office. Making an appointment allows staff to be prepared to service you quickly and efficiently.

Groundhog Day

Did the Groundhog see his shadow on February 2, 2023? YES, HE DID!!

Groundhog Day is famously connected to weather prediction, with the most prominent tradition involving a groundhog predicting the conclusion of winter by seeing (or not seeing) his own shadow.

According to weather lore:

  • Sees His Shadow: If the plump prognosticator emerges from his hole on a clear day and sees his shadow, he will retreat, and there will be six more weeks of wintry weather.

  • No Shadow: If he emerges from his burrow and does NOT see his shadow, then early spring weather is right around the corner.
