Post Out;- as listed.
Question Time;- LIFT. This had run without a light & then stopped functioning. John had rung at 5pm engineer came at 6.45pm did ?covered all control buttons, thus leaving all without a lift from Saturday evening until he returned at 9.30am on Monday morning. After he had been here 20 mins all was well again. Tenants are saying that KMC no longer do this work that it is a private company they THINK. Should they not have been informed of this change if it is so? The engineer stated that when the light goes out this will happen. So we asked all to note this & should it happen again for to please ring the number in the lift so hopefully it will not be out of action for as long next time.
Joan brought up about the state of the outside of the building. After discussion we ask when is our next cyclical maintenance due? Will this also include sorting out of the underground drains once & for all?
