I have distributed the “PSA” to the residents and to my step son at Briar Chapel. I asked him to share it with that community.
Thank you so much for sharing the information. The more eyes on the problem the quicker we can solve it!
Oh, Ellen, that’s alarming….. Hope they’re able to identify the cause and eliminate it quickly!
