200 Roehampton Avenue
Dear Mr. Imseis,
I have recently been contacted by several of your tenants at 200 Roehampton Avenue with concerns regarding pests in the building and issues with the elevators.
It has come to my attention that tenants have spotted cockroaches and rats in the building. Pests pose a serious health risk to tenants and impact the well-being of everyone who lives there.
In addition, I have been informed that your elevator has been encountering some technical issues, including making sudden, shaking motions. While this is a major problem in of itself, I have also been told that building staff are hesitant to put it out of service when its behaviour is questionable. A broken elevator that is not taken out of service poses a significant safety risk, especially to seniors and tenants with disabilities.
I would appreciate a prompt response from you, outlining an immediate timetable for resolving these concerns. Tenants’ safety and quality of life is very important to me and should be a priority for us all.
