RE: COST OF ELECTRICITY IN MANHATTAN PARK

February 28. 2009


Dear Manhattan Park Residents,

We all have noticed an increase in the cost of electricity during the winter months.
Whereas some apartment’s bills increase little, other’s reached the several hundred
dollars. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE BEING BILLED
CORRECTLY BY MANHATTAN PARK. Therefore, I am asking the management to
provide the actual cost per kilowatt hour and the total amount of energy (kwh) they
purchase from the utility (on a monthly basis) and check that we the tenants
are billed using the same rate. I will make the letter requesting management to reveal the
actual cost of electricity by adding our signatures to the request.
WE NEED YOUR PARTICIPATION TO OBTAIN THIS INFORMATION. Please
provide me with the following data in order to formulate our request to the management.
DATE Kilowatts* price charged for electric use
June 2008
July 2008
December 2008
