Letter: Why no permit for Manors?
Now that the news of the chaos caused by the work at Manors I and II has been made public, I want to know why this remodeling work did not require a building permit from the city. Is there no local governmental agency responsible for this type of project in a public housing facility?
The county and the city are looking the other way and fingers are pointed in all directions. Let’s get some light shown on this fiasco — people forced to move out of their apartments, their belongings lost, stolen or damaged. One renter having to sleep on her sofa because her bed was damaged by workers. Residents were allowed to move back in with work unfinished — some without plumbing? Where does the buck stop?
