Henry Gilman Apartments Manager07/05/2016

I'm sorry you had a negative experience at Henry Gilman. Steve Brown Apartments (the owner) has been in business for 35 years. We serve thousands of residents each year and we strive to create the best possible housing experience for each one. It's always unfortunate when there's a disconnect. I would like to clarify a few points that deal with safety and legal issues: 1. Our elevators adhere to the WI state code which requires an annual inspection and a permit to operate, and that all injuries or accidents (there have been none) are reported. 2. We strictly adhere to the lease agreement which require 24-hour's notice prior to entering a resident's apartment. We have never received a complaint from any official agency re. this matter. 3. We have never had a resident tell us there are cockroaches in their apartment and we have not received any notices from the city inspectors or health department. 4. The only time we get involved in the relationship between a resident and MGE, and assess a fee, is when a resident doesn't set up or turn off utilities on their own and MGE directly bills us for their usage. Additionally, in June of 2016 we finished a complete remodel of the first floor community room and fitness center at Henry Gilman. We reinvest millions of dollars into our properties every year.
