Sometime during the day on September 11, 2017, the following was posted on the public bulletin board in each of the four renovated buildings of the Little Jon Apartments, located at 1150-1156 Grand Drive, apts 1-32, Bigfork, MT. The font is size 20, so there are five pages tacked up. There is a note on the manager’s office door that she will be gone until September 18. Normal hours for the manager are from 10 am to 2 pm, Monday – Friday. There is a maintenance man from about 8 am to noon, also Monday-Friday.
There is no letterhead on the letter-size papers, there is no date, and there are no signatures. So the tenants do not know who wrote it or who posted it.
~ Anyone on this property with a weapon of any kind such as a knife will be escorted off this property by the Sheriffs Dept. Every tenant is responsible for their visitors. So, if you have guest coming to your apt. carrying a weapon YOU will be in jeopardy of losing your housing for violating the Lease and the Rule and Regulation. This is unacceptable behavior and will not be tolerated here. If you don’t like the rules then by all means fill out a vacate form and go where the rules are more lax. Also, being half dressed is not acceptable. Put a shirt on, pull up the shorts or hang out somewhere else. No one is impressed.
~ Everyone needs to SLOW down when driving in or out of this parking lot. We have disabled, elderly, and service animals that are at risk when people fly in and out here with their music blaring or texting while driving. If you hit someone “I am sorry” doesn’t cut it! And you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Have respect for others.
I will be cracking down on these violations, count on it.
~Any drug dealing here will be prosecuted. Is risking your housing over a felony worth it?
~I have had many complaints over kids being loud at night. Parents let’s get a handle on this.
Please make a spare set of keys because no one is available to come here to unlock your door. Once you are handed your keys (actually only one key) at move in, it now becomes your responsibility to have them with you, not ours. You will have to call a Lock Smith.
We have an abandoned stolen car on our Property. Please contact the Sheriffs dept. with any info.
We also have 3 stolen bikes on the property. This is a shame!
We have a Land Rover in the parking lot that needs to be registered with the office. I need the owner to put in writing whose it is and who they are visiting. It hasn’t moved in weeks. Please put in my Office drop box. It will be towed if I don’t hear from you asap.
~As a courtesy, try not to do laundry after 8 as the machines are loud and the residents are trying to relax for the evening. (Rules posted in laundry room state, “first wash at 8 a.m last wash at 8 pm, last dry at 9 pm)
~I am disappointed at the lack of respect some here have for others. We will be Monitoring the activity in the evenings when most of these occurrences happen. Everyone deserves to have a quiet haven. Let’s respect each other.
Thank you (smiley face)
In my opinion, my first amendment rights to protect myself are being violated as MT has a stand your ground law. May as well hang a sign at the entrance that “this is a gun free zone, none of the tenants can protect themselves, so have at them.”
Being told what clothing we can and cannot wear is also an insult. One tenant was standing on his patio in an Irish Kilt and the manager criticized him for not being properly dressed. This is a non-smoking complex, so one tenant was standing 20′ away from his building without his shirt, in the back of the property out of sight and was chastised. Apparently nobody is allowed to lay on their lawns to sunbathe either. We do no know who was banishing a large knife, but many of us carry pocket knives; I have one on my key chain. I don’t know how to go forward with this notice, but I am in a rage.
My first inclination is to get the Scottish bagpipers to stand along the road in front of the property wearing their kilts, and only what G-d graced them with upon their birth underneath.
