Valet Trash

Feedback Question for Iris Flats

I am a new resident to Iris flats. I know the leasing agent that helped me is new because she told me there were no visitor spots at my location. My question is do I have the option to opt out of valet trash? I am perfectly capable of walking my trash to the dumpster and you can only fit one bag of trash in the little bins on my porch. It just seems like a waste of $25.00/month. Can someone respond to me regarding this? Thank you!

Hello Justin, 

 

Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback! At Iris Flats there are visitor parking spots around the entire community for your visitors to utilize. As far as the valet trash, it is a community wide rule therefore unfortunately, you cannot opt out. Valet Trash is the only option Iris Flats has for trash removal. As always, please let us know if we can further assist you in any way. Have a wonderful day :)

Dumpster Inaccessible ... Again

Feedback Problem for Iris Flats

Hi, Lauren et al. I appreciate the measures you took to clear out the dumpster area when I brought it to management's attention back in June. Unfortunately, with the exodus of old residents and the influx of new ones, the dumpster and the area surrounding it are crammed full of mattresses, box springs, and other discarded furniture. It's quite literally impossible to throw out trash. Could you please make arrangements to have the abandoned furniture removed, as we know by now that the regular garbage pick up does not deal with these items. Thanks so much!...

We all want to know: What’s the deal with this ridiculous water bill increase?

Feedback Question for Iris Flats

I would like to know why on God’s green earth we are paying $100 in utilities (not even including electricity!) for a barely 510 sq ft apartment? What is the exact calculation of these rates? What size meter do we have? How many gallons do we actually use as a whole community? OUC provides a detailed PDF document of what they charge per meter/a volume charge per 1,000 gallons. Does this include all the times the sprinklers are running? (some of them spray right on to the sidewalk! Complete waste!) Another question, is the street supposed to be a one way street? I myself come and go through...

Has anyone found any answers to the water bills increase? I am a new tenant and haven’t received a water bill yet but am a bit concerned. When I moved in I asked about this and the response I received was that all McKinley properties operate this way and that the water is divided equally amongst units and if you have more people/unit you pay more. I’m hoping I don’t get 100 dollar water bill. My previous 1 bedroom I paid $25/mo.

At least 10 cops banging on doors at 5am

Feedback Problem for Iris Flats

At the lovely hour of 5am just now we were abruptly awakened by pounding on doors. Considering how paper thin these walls are, it sounded like pounding on our door. So, naturally we look through the peep hole-nothing... We’re like alright Satan, not today. Open the door a crack and then suddenly-coming from upstairs and around the corner are the police, all decked out in swatlike vests who told us to just go back inside. We probably ruined their sting, or, whatever they deem necessary to do at the crack of ass in the morning by them scaring the living daylights out of my boyfriend (who mind...

Shocking Unprofessionalism

Feedback Problem for Iris Flats

*Just reminding the office that while we appreciate the rent reminders, we are still waiting for an answer to the issue below. What will it take? I don’t think any of us are litigious, but we also won’t be taken advantage of. Please do us the courtesy of responding* Many of us are still waiting for an explanation as to the extreme increase in the water bill. I hope you can understand our incredulity at the amount, especially when the most many are accustomed to paying, especially when renting an apartment, is about $30. In comparison, $75 for a 1 bedroom 1 occupant is ridiculous. I know I...

They’ll just give a gauge, uneducated completely guessed ‘equation’ as to why we’re being robbed. Don’t expect anything good from this place

Completely agree. Would love to know myself. This is absolutely unheard of for a 510 sq ft apartment with 1 occupant.

Still Waiting

Feedback Question for Iris Flats

Many of us are still waiting for an explanation as to the extreme increase in the water bill. I hope you can understand our incredulity at the amount, especially when the most many are accustomed to paying, especially when renting an apartment, is about $30. In comparison, $75 for a 1 bedroom 1 occupant is ridiculous. I know I speak for many residents when I say we are entitled to an explanation regarding how exactly the cost is calculated (not a vague answer regarding an equation or that another company comes up with the number) and why the cost has increased so dramatically. Similarly, any...

I can't support this comment enough. The lack of communication regarding this issue is unacceptable and frankly, embarrassing.

I completely agree with you, I called to ask and got not one solid reason as to why this is happening, and that’s only after calling about half a dozen times with no answer.This is just ridiculous, my friend stay in a four bedroom house with six people living in it and her water bill is the same amount of mines and it’s only me, myself and I how is this possible.

Water Bill Raise

Feedback Problem for Iris Flats

I think the entire community is waiting with baited breath to hear McKinley’s reasoning on how a utility bill for one bedroom one bathroom and one occupant is $75.

You know there's no real explanation. We've been through this before. There response is that it's based on how many units, occupants and size of the apt. They just guesstimate the bill. This shit is fucking ridiculous. Thank God I'm moving because McKinley is so horrible.
