|Five brand new shrink-wrapped generators wait for... ?|
Holy frosty-generator! What are five Blue Star Power Systems, Inc generators doing sitting in a parking lot over at the HHA?
Does anybody know?
The brand-new, shrink-wrapped generators are encased in snow and ice, and according to an HHA resident, have been there for months- since October. In fact, the generators have sat there for so long without being installed, they've spawned rumor and speculation among HHA residents. According to one resident:
They've been in the parking lot since mid to late October. There are rumors circulating that he bought non-working generators and that (redacted) is waiting for a storm so he can say they don't work due the storm. Other rumors going around, he's so pissed at Vision $/$ not going down that he's waiting for a storm to hit to destroy the generators to be spiteful & then say when we have no power how the HHA is in bad condition & can't withhold storms and that's why we need Vision $/$.
Oh, dear. Well, one must separate rumor from fact.
The fact is, there are 5 new generators sitting in an HHA parking lot.
Whose are they? Why are they there? Which buildings were they ordered for? Why weren't they installed? Are they properly protected from exposure to storms (raised)? Were these purchased with FEMA grant money or HUD money? How much did they cost? Who has the contract for this work?
There's an HHA meeting on Thursday. Maybe the Board can get answers, if they don't know them. Maybe they know why the generators are there.
I'll bet those generators cost taxpayers a pretty penny. If the HHA ordered them, they ought to be installed, right?
