I just wanted to write a bit to reiterate the purpose of this website. Murdoch Management seems either unwilling to work with us on the problems at City Oasis, 435 Cumberland Ave (a property they are managing), or for some other unknown reason have no desire to solve the problems on their property. They have, in the past, even been unwilling to look at free solutions that we brought to them, where no work was required on their part. I really can not understand why Murdoch seems so resistant to doing anything.
In our reports that we have filed with various agencies, we noted how our other neighbours, 411 Cumberland, were extremely co-operative. When I asked the management at 411 about meeting with them about graffiti, they cleaned up the graffiti immediately before we could even meet! And they didn't use the free options either, they actually paid somebody to do it.
So the purpose of this website is to continue to document the problems at 435 Cumberland Ave, and to have it posted in a place that is accessible to our tenants here at 427 Cumberland Ave, so that our tenants know that we are actually trying hard to deal with these problems, and we are not just ignoring them. I have also been able to show this website to various agencies whose services I have enlisted in trying to deal with these problems, most notably, the Winnipeg Police, the City of Winnipeg Community Bylaw Enforcement, and the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission.
There seems to be better response now from Murdoch Management about garbage cleanup. This can be directly attributed to the City of Winnipeg Community Bylaw Enforcement Services getting on Murdoch's case and telling them to either clean up their own garbage, or the City will clean it up for them, and bill them for the trouble. I talked to the police lately, and they said they can do the same thing with the weeds between our building that are encroaching onto our property (427 Cumberland Ave). But there has been absolutely no movement regarding the drinking between our buildings. I continue to take pictures every single day.
Thanks very much to Chris for helping us work with the City of Winnipeg!
