Rivers Edge And Courtney Deason ;The Inspection Documents Reveal Extent Of Neglect Due To Poor Management

After a series of complaints provided by tenants residing at Rivers Edge Apartments, on Thursday, August 24th 2017 a meeting was held on site to express concerns with management and code violations. Some of the complaints included;
Lack of maintenance
Maintenance not happening in a timely manor
Misc. Code Violations
Plumbing issues and leaks
Rude/unprofessional front office practices
Common areas/art rooms not being available to the artists
After going to this meeting and hearing some of the issues present, the Housing and Community Development Department (HCDD) sent Code Enforcement Officers to inspect the property on Thursday, August 31st. The following violations were found throughout the eighteen apartments inspected. Four apartments claimed no issues.
Air filters not being replaced, or not present at all
Leak in top floor apartment when it rains, leaking into smoke detector outlet
Electrical outlets not working
Smoke detector batteries need replaced (10’ ceilings)
Washers don’t all have leak trays, presenting possible future leaks
Burners on stove tops not working at all or not properly working
Cracks in ceiling drywall, some showing discoloration from water
Missing weather stripping in exterior doors
Bathrooms not impervious to water/need caulking around tubs
Refrigerator leaking from condensation, building up ice in freezer, had broken seal
Mildew on ceilings in bathrooms (10’ ceilings)
Garbage disposals not working or not working properly
Hinges on interior doors not functioning properly
Closet shelving falling when put to use
Broken light fixture on exterior hallway in apt building 660, 2nd floor
Some other thoughts and concerns noted from the meeting and inspection are as followed;
Not a significant amount of maintenance staff
All hot water heaters and HVAC units are in a locked closet in each unit. Keys should be left on site in a knox box in case of emergency leaks or other issues during the off hour times
The tenants responsibilities and fees for maintenance should be clearly listed
The City of Salisbury HCDD should be informed of issues taking place that will take longer than two weeks to fix by onsite maintenance or any job that has to be outsourced


Why Habitat America keeps a person employed who runs a complex in the ground like this, but also cost them Island Club is beyond me . Read the complaints online of any of the apartment review sites for both island club and runaway bay. This is just a sample

These comments are truly disgusting. Are you all expressing that these people should live in these conditions because of their income? Are you kidding me? If you googled about these apartments you would know they are apart of the tax act. They’re not section 8! Most of the people have jobs.
At least they’re trying and not consuming welfare on the level you seem to think they are. Maybe since you all seem to lump them together they should settle for welfare and eat up your money. GIVE THEM A BREAK. They seem to be decent citizens and going about this in a proper way and not being anamalistic like you baboons. Does someone who does not make as much as you deserve to be treated unfairly?

No no one should have to live like this but the fact is you can't guild this lily. Call this what it is-The Projects and they are subsidized.
Salisbury people for too long are living in LaLa Land. Really???? an artist colony or whatever the dopes in the government were sold. How stupid are they!
It will only get worst so the good people should start looking for another residence. In 20 yrs they will have to implode the building because it will be a crime infested rat roach hole. That's how this all works.

Terry Cohen, Debbie Campbell, Tim Spies, Jim Ireton, Shamey Shieds, yep, it's their stupid legacy.

I would have rather seen that property stay vacant then give it to Section 8 freeloaders. You will never clean up that damn ghetto now.

Then they have the nerve to complain about the WHITE man when it's the white man that pays the FUCKING BILL AKA REPERATIONS.

12:01 While not "section 8" whenever you see "affordable" attached to anything for rent then that is a clue that it is subsidized. The mistake anyone made by moving in there was to not realize since the government is involved it was guaranteed to turn into a shit hole. Most any time the government gets involved in something it turns to crap. Like health insurance. Above is right. They are The Projects just with a fancy name. Like all projects the companies rarely fix anything because all they are worried about are their salaries. They are operating on a shoestring budget because the companies that receive subsidizes for projects are all "non profit developers." Be interesting to see what the CEO of HA makes a year. I agree too it's only going to get worse. Better off moving and renting from a local landlord who lives in the community. That way when you get the run around from them JT can post and have a Bash the Landlord Fest which usually gets results because they are embarrassed.

White privilege = I can never walk into a welfare office and expect to be helped.

White privilege = I can never get a job based off of my skin color

White privilege = I can never say white and proud without being called a racist

White privilege = I can never get help with college based off of my skin color

They may be welfare apartments but they must be fancy if they have garbage disposals!

Right. If you don't like it buy your own place and you can keep it up as you see fit. If you can't afford a place blame it on obama and the democrats who most welfare cases idolize because they are dumb asses. obama and the democrats are the ones who flooded the country with immigrants which only keeps wages low. Too many asses for too few seats. When employers don't have to compete for employees wages stay low and stagnant. Unfortunately these welfare peons are too dumb to grasp this simple fact so they do deserve to live in shit holes. They were the ones who grew it so they need to sit their smelly asses down and shut up and suck up your plight in life. That is the consequence of being an ignoramus.

This is true. I was going to a local college and couldn't get the typical grants or scholarships and had to take out a student loan.

I didn't have any health insurance and ended up with a serious knee injury. I went in the local Department of Social Services and could not get any assistance because I was white. They counted my student loan as "income" and it counted against me because I was white. If I was the other color or Mexican or foreigner I would have gotten Medicaid, Medicare, EBT, Housing Grants, cash and food stamps.

I'll beat your sorry ass you moron. You don't know the difference between section 8 and affordable housing. The waterfront view next to a ship building factory,? That's not so luxurious. Give me a time and place. You want to threaten a woman so now I will treat you like a man you piece of shit.

Umm.. get a grip. There is a difference between section 8 and tax credit. The biggest welfare recipient is the owner of the complex, Osprey. You people need to actually take a moment and tone down your ignorance. It's the sole reason Salisbury can open nothing more than Dollar Generals and gas stations.

Also, white are the largest users of welfare. Talk all the mess you want, ya'll have always been in the majority and continue to be. But feel free to try again with the woosy woosy wow wow fake crying. As a white people in the good ol US of A, if your living in trash, acting like trash and over all struggling, it's your own fault. This place is set up for ya'll. So go somewhere with your netball comments and over the top exaggerations.

Courtney is horrible to everyone, ask the folks who live at Runaway Bay. And please realize not everyone wants to be a home owner. So stop assuming someone wants sign a bunch of papers for a small ass tax write off.
