Hey Sebastian,

I really apologize for this inconvenience. We had a water emergency in a 1601 unit this morning that required the water to be immediately shut off temporarily. The water should be coming back on momentarily. Unfortunately, the entire building is on the same meter and there is only 1 shut-off valve so this was our only option :(

Thank you,

Thank you very much for your answer Mr. Jonas . Do you have an estimated time it will return the water service ?
JonasHoedebecke · 2 days 17 hours ago
No problem. I just spoke with the tech that is working to resolve the issue. Larry is working to change a couple of bad valves and believes he will have the service restored in the next 30-60 minutes.

Thank you,

Jonas

Hessel On The Park Office Power Outage

Dear Residents,

 

The leasing office at Hessel on the Park is experiencing a power outage -- this is also leaving the office without phones.  A tree fell on a power line during today's storm.  Ameren is currently working to remedy the problem and we have an electrician on site beginning repairs to the office.

 

Power should be restored tomorrow.

 

If you need assistance, we can be reached at the Nantucket Cove office at 217-344-8800.

 

Thank you for your patience :)

Good Morning!!

I am going to give you a call myself this morning to gather some additional information about exactly which unit you have referred to in this message. I do want to thank you for making me aware of the situation. I appreciate the assistance in monitoring the property -- it takes more than just my two eyes and two ears :) I personally live only a hundred, or so, yards away from you so my interests are the same in ensuring that we have a safe and quiet environment for our children!! I'm surprised I didn't hear this last night.

Thankfully, we do an extensive background check on all residents prior to move in. Of course, this doesn't guarantee that friends/family of lessees aren't going to present issues but it certainly helps :)

Very thankfully,

Healthy and Convenient Dining

Good Afternoon Everyone,

 

I hope you are all off to the start of a great weekend!  Knowing that the weather is nice, BBQ's are firing up, pools are open, and it's the time of the year for summer fun to begin, I wanted to share something with everyone about healthy and convenient dining options for the days when you just don't have enough time to make a smart meal plan. 

 

This was actually forwarded to us from McKinley's Wellness Director Meredith Mitchell.  She's always sharing great advice for healthy living.  Meredith sent:

 

Life can get very busy sometimes and when it does, the weekly grocery shopping trip can slide down to the bottom of the priority list.  If you travel frequently you don't always have the opportunity to grocery shop or have a fridge to keep your food in. So, what you're left looking for is something quick and convenient, right!? No problem! There are several restaurants that offer healthier selections and provide nutrition facts so you can make the right choice :-).

 

The website listed below includes several restaurants to choose from. If you don't see your restaurant of choice on my list, you can look for the food item you usually order and find the calorie and nutrition breakdown.

 

http://www.fastfoodnutrition.org/fast-food-restaurants.php

 

Thank you Meredith for the great information and inspiration on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.  I'm proud to share what you do for McKinley with our residents here in Champaign, IL.

 

If anyone else has healthy recipes or suggestions, please post in the comments below.

 

Enjoy your weekend,

 

-Andy

P/S: I really have issues with noise, especially when someone jumping/running/dropping heavy stuff. I could not sleep at night if someone on top of me do something and creates noise. Please solve the problem for me asap, or at least let me move out.

It's 3:48 a.m now, and I can hear the people talking and laughing...I was expecting that I would be able to get the apartment I wanted, but I am very disappointed now.

My email is Jonas.hoedebecke@mckinley.com as well so you can reach out to me directly via email if you are in class or somewhere you can't speak on the phone.

Anyone ready for a dip??

 

Good Evening Everyone,

 

First off, thank you all very much for your patience and understanding as we made multiple repairs and upgrades to the Nantucket Cove and Hessel on the Park pools this Spring.  At Nantucket Cove you will notice some bright, brand new, blue pool tiles have been installed and are looking wonderful.  At Hessel on the Park, you won't believe the difference a fresh royal blue coat of pool paint has made.  After lots of time and hard work.....

 

WE ARE officially open for business at both sites and welcome all of our wonderful residents to come out and enjoy the pools.  It looks like beautiful weather for tomorrow and if we are lucky....the rain will hold off for the weekend :)

 

A few things to keep in mind while enjoying the pool this Summer:

 

1) ALL CHILDREN under 16 years of age MUST be supervised by a responsible adult at all times

2) The pool is open 9am thru sun-down (roughly 9pm) daily (weather dependent)

3) No alcohol allowed

4) There is no lifeguard on duty--no jumping or diving in the pool for your own safety

5) Walk, do not run, on the pool deck

6) The pools are for residents only.  Any guests must be accompanied by a resident at all times.

 

There are "Rules and Regulations" posted at each site and should be followed appropriately in addition to those listed above.  Please reach out to me directly if you have any questions.  I can be reached via email all weekend at jonas.hoedebecke@mckinley.com.  I can be reached any other time at 217-356-4012 (Hessel on the Park Office) or 217-344-8800 (Nantucket Cove Office).

 

Please have a SAFE and FUN Memorial Day Weekend!!

 

Sincerely,

 

Jonas D. Hoedebecke

Haley,

Thank you for your message. I hope we can alleviate some of this feeling for you very quickly. Let me address your concerns one at a time:

Residents not picking up after animals--I had sent maintenance out to pickup a significant mess the day you mentioned it and I thank you for letting me know the problem was getting worse. Nichole will post all buildings (1607, 1609, 1611) in your area today and we hope that all residents will notify us when any resident is seen not picking up pet waste.

Water Problem--This is the first I've heard about a problem like this as I also reside at Hessel. This is VERY concerning though and instead of having you take the time to call....Nichole will call Illinois American Water and enter a request for a "quality of water concern" today. Nichole's email is nichole.porter@mckinley.com-----my email is Jonas.hoedebecke@mckinley.com. Nichole will followup with us both via email after she speaks with the water company.

Maintenance---this is most unfortunate, we hate to see anytime a resident has a maintenance concern so we try to jump right on the issue and resolve it within 24 hours. I appreciate you working out a time that maintenance could enter and resolve the a/c issue you had about a week ago. As for the request this morning, we hope to have all of those issues resolved today. Again, I hate that you have had maintenance issues but I can assure you we will jump right on these problems and get them fixed for you.

Hopefully, we can help you get through this frustrating time as we definitely want you to be happy where you live. Please, feel free to followup with me via email (I'll be out of the office until Thursday but will be checking emails). I'd be happy to sit with you and discuss an other problems you have had at your convenience.

Thank you,
