The latest round of foolishness started with a simple question.
"Can someone tell me if any portion of the TIF plan includes evacuating
the animals residing in our walls and fixing the holes in the roof?
What about the back portion of the fence? If no one has an answer, I
can always call my NHS person and clarify."
A few days later I received the following reply:
No, it does not cover it extermination or the fence. Feel free to
call NHS if you like, but no, the money is not going to pay for those
What back portion of the back fence are you referring to? The fence
is going to stay as it is. Unless the board votes on spending money to
put up a new fence for Ms. Martinez, and that is highly unlikely,
given that the board has never paid for an individual unit's issue, and
it would be highly irresponsilbe to spend money on that, given the
status of our ongoing builidng issues.
Let me remind you that we STILL have several people who are very
delinquent in their account and if that money was paid up by the 4
people who still are not paying, maybe we would have enough to do all
the projects we wanted. We currently have 3 leins and are going to vote
on a 4th lein within the next few weeks.
By the way, were you ever able to get more quotes for exterminators
to remove the animals from the wall? As I recall, the 3 quotes that we
initially provided, plus the one that you provided, were not useful,
correct? You indicated that you would call more places and get
estimate, if I recall correctly. Have you had any luck with that?
One last thing, did you ever go to the alderman's office to get the
expidited (sic) permit for the violations? We have not heard back a response
from you on that we really want to move forward on this since our next
court date is coming up at the end of the month. Please let us know if
you in fact did do this or if you cannot do this afterall (sic) so that we can
have someone else do it. Thank you.
With most communications it's not what's said, but what's not said that's the most important.
