Tenants, landlord hope to work out quality of life issues at Middlecrest Crossing

Air conditioner with no knobs

MIDDLETOWN – Tenant representatives from Middlecrest Crossing senior apartments in Middletown sat down with Mayor Marlinda Duncanson and representatives of the facility’s management company Thursday in hopes of working out the many issues the tenants believe are unfair.

Their concerns include removal of air conditioner knobs, removal of furniture from common areas, and a memo telling tenants, even handicapped ones, that when it snows, they must move their vehicles.

Duncanson said she is satisfied with the talks. “I think it’s going to take a little time; this didn’t happen overnight, and I think they truly want to resolve whatever problems there are and I really think they are going to work for the best interest of the residents,” she said.

The mayor said some of the tenants’ concerns are valid, but she did not elaborate.
