  1. I need someone to kick Triton Renovation in the ass and fix my god damn condo at the Bayview complex. These people are spread out too thin doing many projects around the state. There is no way they have us back in there by May like the original plan was. The property management company is and has always been absolutly worthless. Im sick of waiting, yet im at these peoples mercy and they dont give a flying F… This blows

    • Dale Leubner is probably hiding out some where with the people from Triton renovations smoking a doobie instead of working on my damn condo…

  4. The reality is, that the people that have helped the residents the most, were most responsive, didnt have a problem with what people took, and were the most giving, without looking for praise, were the wonderful people at the Christ Cavalry Church downtown in the old Methodist church. For weeks they served food on the sidewalk, gave away donated supplies of all kinds, didnt discriminate against anyone, and served the community selflessly and didnt do it because they had an agenda.

    They just did it because it was the right thing to do. Im sure they would still be doing it if they had the man power didnt become exhausted and didnt have a church to run. I would much rather see those people be handling the money and supplies and things coming into town.

    As far as everyones problems here. The reality of it all is people unfortunately are going to have to rely on themselves. They are going to have to realize, not unlike a zombie apocolypse(IE the walking dead, or dawn of the dead) no help is coming!!!!

    To get entangled with the town, state, or any other authorities is asking for more aggravation than a person can handle. The stories of what is required changes daily and no one really knows what the deal is. They tell you to get back in your homes as soon as you can because people need to, then tell you they may rip your walls apart if they want to inspect electrical and other work done.

    They tell you you need permits and other things, but the town didnt have a functioning Borough hall for how long? And who knows what kinds of permits etc you would even need? They assume everyone goes though this kind of stuff every day and just know what they need to do.

    So, I say, embrace the chaos, do what you have to do to survive, get back in your houses, and let the pieces fall when they may. People need to be able to live and move on with their lives!

    Let the powers that be play paddy cake with each other and argue about all the small details. I will bet in the end there will be so many aggravated people and such a backlash that no one will want to touch any of these issues.

  5. I would like contractors that I don’t have to babysit to make sure the job gets done right, and who don’t need a punch list for the freaking punch list.

    If you’re too busy to take the job, say so. I’d rather do it myself than have you rush through it, take my money, and make me hunt you down to fix it.

    • Thanks, but I think we’re going to try and finish the rest of this ourselves,. This may change once we start wrangling with the kitchen cabinets. If that kicks our ass, I’ll be in touch.
