River Valley homeowners continue to live in a precarious state of health. The stress is palpable and life for the 30 or so families living in the Mobile Home park in Aweres Township north of Sault Ste Marie is increasingly atrocious.
With little to no help on the way, it would seem that River Valley homeowners are being left to their own devices.
The owners of River Valley Park, River Valley Park Inc., have essentially stopped communicating with homeowners and have put up a barricade towards any meaningful solution to the Provincial Court ordered Septic system upgrade.
“It’s getting horrendous. The office is closed – We aren’t getting answers – They actually don’t reply – The number for the office (River Valley) is disconnected and we haven’t seen any signs of the manager (Surinder Dusanjh) in ages.” shared homeowner Faith Hackney.
“We don’t have any person to give our rent to – And now they want to have us place it (rent) into a wooden mailbox, with a small lock on it. The roads are getting worse. The people still don’t have working drains and no one from the ownership has stepped in the drinking water shed to resolve the drinking water issue.” she said. “Some people have received illegal power shutoff notices.”
Homeowner James Sloan said, “There is no indication that the sewage system will be replaced or repaired. With the water system being compromised due to ongoing pressure problems which led to the current boiled water advisory, maintenance of the park does not appear to be part of future plans of the (River Valley Park) owners.
