Update for July 6th, 2020

Hello Residents!

Happy Belated Fourth of July! 

Today, we learned that Thyssenkrupp is scheduled to begin this Wednesday.  The parts are on the way, but they are going to begin tear-down of parts and hydraulic oil removal this week.  The tear-down and replacement of parts along with new oils, gaskets and seals could take up to three weeks to complete.

The fire system has been approved for usage without the front end software system that Honeywell is working on.  Although, this is a critical component to the system because it informs us of any fire trouble issues in the building and can pin point more accurately any system issues, the fire alarms have all been tested by Honeywell and are working properly at this time.  They are also able to send fire alarm messages to Veteran’s alarm for fire truck dispatch.  We can move in and wait for the software to be completed with this great news!

The duct work has been fully cleaned and sanitized.  It was very gross!  I am so glad we did it.  The building is smelling much better now.  The carpets are being cleaned throughout the entire building today and tomorrow.  The City of Midland is working to come and retrieve the remaining trash in the back parking lot and we are now awaiting the large semi-truck storage containers that are in the back parking lot to be picked up so you will have a place to park.

Maintenance has been working very hard because everything that they had moved upstairs from the lower level before the flood had to be moved back to the lower level last week.  Everything in those semi-storage containers had to be emptied and brought back into the building. We are trying to clean things up and get messes out of the way while we are having the elevators worked on.  

Having said all of this, we are now ready to give a TENTATIVE date on when you can come home. 

Our goal is to allow you to move back in beginning August 7th. 

This could change with any unexpected delays or circumstances beyond our control.  But if everything goes as planned, our goal is August 7th.

I know you have a lot of questions.  Stay tuned.

We are working diligently to figure out one meal per day for independent living residents and 3 meals a day for Supportive.

Don’t worry, even if the meals are not worked out fully, you will be able to return.

Again, August 7th is our goal date.  It is still considered TENTATIVE at this time, but we are very hopeful!

Blessings and Peace, Kim Samborn
