Gas heat off in 527A and B

October 13, 2009

Last May 5 (2009) the gas company turned off the gas to repair the meter. They did not turn the gas back on, so these two apartments had no heat over the summer.

Called the gas company and gave them Sheri as the contact and asked that they light BOTH apartments’ furnaces. They will send someone out today (13 Oct 2009)

1020hrs: called B&B Drain (507-334-0603). Left message. Called B&B Drain (507-645-9630), talked with Renee, they will have someone out there early afternoon.  I told her that they are my go-to contractor for the Kenyon Post Office and that they should expect repeat business.

I was shown damaged and weakened flooring caused by excessive point loading coupled with water leaking in under the back door sill. This will require additional work and perhaps a new subfloor.
