Prime Minister Scott Morrison called on property managers, landlords and tenants to work together to try to come to an arrangement to get them through for the next six months.

LJ Hooker Nerang principal Shane Colquhoun.Mr Colquhoun said his office had drafted a document for tenants detailing the proof required to apply for a rental reduction.“They have to prove that they don’t have work, they will need to show bank balances and proof from Centrelink that they’ve applied for assistance before a rental reduction can be considered,” he said.“We need that information before we even go to our landlords, otherwise you could get a lot of tenants crying poor because of the situation we’re in.“I’m also mindful that there are investors out there who have also lost their jobs, so it’s a double uppercut to lose that rental income as well.” Property managers are also faced with the daunting task of considering each request individually in order to negotiate a solution that works for both tenant and landlord.“It’s a massive job for our property managers moving forward,” said Mr Colquhoun, who has already been forced to cut eight staff to manage COVID-19 losses.“We also have to rely on less people doing more … and potentially for no income. If we don’t get rent, then we don’t get a management fee.” last_img read more

Oscoda Township Meeting Updates Residents on PFAS Clean-up

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisOscoda Township — PFAS remains an on–going issue in Oscoda Township, and residents are looking for relief.Residents of Oscoda Township are still seeking answers about fixing the water contamination issue they’ve been facing over the last year. Aaron Weed, Oscoda City Supervisor says they’re looking to various government entities for answers.“Tonight we’re getting an update over the last year to what the developments have been from the health department, the Air Force, DEQ… to find out what solutions they’re putting in place for the next year.”PFAS, harmful synthetic chemicals used to manufacture many consumer products, have been found throughout drinking water in Oscoda Township, stemming from Wurtsmith Air Force Base.“We have a significant amount of PFAS contamination that was discharged from the Air Force 30 years ago and its leached into our ground water and getting into our surface water. It’s affected several people’s drinking water wells, and getting into Lake Huron and affecting a lot of other municipalities.”Robert Tasior, a member of the Restoration Advisory Board and resident of Oscoda Township says there’s no time to waste in restoring the community’s healthy water supply.“Are they going to tell my grandchildren their health effects…future generations. They know its there, they know they’re responsible, now they have to fix it.”Representatives from the health department, DEQ, and legislators updated community members on what has been done so far, but there is still no solid answer for a timely remedy.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Oscoda, PFAS, Update, water, Water ContaminationContinue ReadingPrevious Michigan State Police get ready for ‘Stuff a Blue Goose’ this weekendNext Graduating ACC Registered Nurses Complete Final Task of a Mock Disasterlast_img read more
