One of the housing authority's BOD members posted an explanation of what's happened at The Shire. It seems it's down to the insurance, and bureaucracy, natch.
Someone along the line called a bunch of our buildings severely damaged. That's news to me. I heard that my building had no structural damage at all. In fact I still have the email telling me that.
This estimation of severe damage had to be assessed, then a bid call went out for repairing and a contractor answered at well-beneath the value of the buildings, and the town has said "that's not fair market price". And so they won't accept it. Why? The insurance company.
Ya want my take on this? The town doesn't want The Shire anymore. And screw us who lived there.
I've been emailing everyone I can think of for about 3 hours now. Now that I know who's holding our strings, I have more emails to send. But not tonight. Good thing Strider went out tonight. I need loud music. My music. And she has a great system and we're in the woods.
There's almost a Final Destination feel to this. I move out of one building and it burns down two weeks later. I move to The Shire and it floods. What's next? Locusts?
