Olivia says she is a senior citizen living at grace senior apartments. She she fell on the ice in the parking lot and she says so have a few others. But she says the office manager says there is nothing they can do. Olivia wants to know who is responsible for their parking lot ?
Unfortunately with our frigid temperatures a lot of the ice that usually melts away after a storm is sticking around.
We went over to the grace apartments this afternoon to take a look. The sidewalks leading into the complex have been cleared but there is definitely some ice and snow remaining on the surface of the parking lot.
I spoke with the manager, Carina Trujillo. She says they're doing all they can to keep the parking clear so people don't slip on the ice.
Trujillo says they do have a company that clears the snow for them and they use ice melt and sand but as cold as it is they just can't get it all cleared away. She also said they haven't had any complaints. And she urged any residents who do have concerns to make a report at the office. Short of that, unfortunately you'll just have to watch your step and wait for it to warm up a bit.
