Problems piling up for landlord delinquent on utility bills

Citizens Energy, the city of Indianapolis, and the Indiana Attorney General all have separate pending lawsuits against the apartment owner.

INDIANAPOLIS — 13 Investigates found that the problems keep piling up for a landlord who operates several lower rent Indianapolis apartment complexes.

The latest problem: Trash service was interrupted at Berkley Commons Apartments on Madison Avenue on the south side when the bill wasn't paid.

Every dumpster in the large complex overflowed with garbage Monday morning.

Republic Services told 13 Investigates, "The customer in mention has been placed on a temporary service freeze due to non-payment. Our team is aware and is working directly with the customer to resolve the issue."

The owner of Berkley Commons is JPC Affordable Housing, which also operates Capital Place Apartments. Citizens Energy shut off the water at the two south side complexes Feb. 17 for 24 hours before the city stepped in with an emergency payment of $850,000. But the past due balance on the water bill is still about $1.5 million for four properties, including the Woods at Oak Crossing and Covington Square Apartments on the west side.

Citizens Energy Group provided this update:

“The owners of the apartment complexes, JPC Affordable Housing and their affiliate Berkley Commons, have only made a limited amount of payments on some accounts. The current balance owed to Citizens on four properties is approximately $1.5 million. The properties are Berkley Commons, Capital Place, Woods at Oak Crossing and Covington Square, which just joined the list of their past due properties.

We have been in contact with a representative for the apartment owners but have been unable to secure a reasonable payment arrangement. We are continuing to pursue our legal action in Marion Superior Court to obtain payment on the past due bills. We continue to urge residents living at these apartments to contact their rental office to demand that the owners pay their current and past due utility bills.”

Amber Wilson moved in at Berkley Commons less than a month ago but says Citizens Energy won't hook up gas service for her stove.

"They told me they would not start any new accounts for Berkley Commons,” said Wilson. “So, we're stuck without gas."

A Berkley Commons manager told us the trash service interruption was caused by confusion over bills from other, older properties.

Salvador Lopez has lived at Berkley Commons for eight years. He said he had three large trash bags full of garbage in his apartment that he did not want to throw on the ground because the dumpster was full.

"Thank you for making this report, because it will probably help a little bit for them to try to fix this right now,” said Lopez, who lives in an apartment with his wife and three children. “I hope as soon as possible they have to fix the problem."

Piles of trash could be seen outside Berkley Commons Apartments on Monday, May 16, 2022, after the apartment had a temporary hold put on trash service due to the apartment owner's failure to pay.

At about 3 p.m. Monday afternoon, a resident sent 13News photos showing that the dumpsters had just been emptied at Berkley Commons. The trash is gone, and the overdue water bill remains.

At about 3 p.m. Monday, May 16, 2022, a resident sent 13News photos showing the overflowing dumpsters had just been emptied at Berkley Commons. The trash is gone, and the overdue water bill remains.

Citizens Energy, the city of Indianapolis, and the Indiana Attorney General all have separate pending lawsuits against the apartment owner.

The city's lawsuit demands the owners reimburse the $850,000 the city paid to Citizens Energy to get the water turned back on in February. The Attorney General asserts that JCP has not performed its legal duties as a nonprofit. The lawsuit claims the poor living conditions at these complexes endanger the health and safety of the people who live there.

Dear Members of the University of Indianapolis Community:

After ten years as President of the University of Indianapolis, Robert L. Manuel, Ph.D., today will be named the next president of DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Manuel and the Board are working on a leadership transition that will occur before the start of the next academic year.

The Board of Trustees has formed a Presidential Search Committee and additional details related to that process and the Committee’s composition will be forthcoming. The Trustees are committed to broad representation and engagement with the full University of Indianapolis community in this important process in the coming months.

Dr. Manuel has created a significant record of service and stewardship of the University of Indianapolis since his arrival in 2012. Driven by the Vision 2030 strategic plan, Dr. Manuel ushered in a modern era at the University, overseeing unprecedented academic, financial, and physical growth.

During his tenure, President Manuel launched the Campaign for the University of Indianapolis, the largest fundraising campaign in University history, which raised more than $100 million over the life of the campaign. From the construction of the Health Pavilion to the creation of the R.B. Annis School of Engineering and the opening of R.B. Annis Hall, and enhancing community partnerships, President Manuel has grown the University’s impact exponentially within the central Indiana region and throughout the Midwest. We are committed and excited to continue that growth into the future.

Thanks in part to the hard work, dedication, and generational impact of Dr. Manuel in finding ways to elevate the stature of the University as an institution and in our community—through the growth of academic programs, sustainability, and the University’s role as a community anchor—we are excited about the depth and breadth of candidates the search process will attract.

While a comprehensive national search is conducted to select the next President of the University of Indianapolis, and to continue the efforts of the previous administration, the Board has appointed Phillip Terry, immediate past Chair of the University’s Board of Trustees, as interim President beginning July 2, 2022 and continuing until a new University President is appointed by the Board.

The University remains in the hands of a talented senior leadership team with the full support of the Board of Trustees. Innovation, adaptation, and a commitment to shared governance have been hallmark qualities of the campus community throughout our history and those bedrock principles will continue to guide the University’s path forward.

We offer our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Manuel for his considerable achievements at the University of Indianapolis and congratulate him on his new opportunity at DePaul University. As we look ahead, the Board of Trustees thanks you for your continued support and invites you to engage with us in this process as we embark on the next chapter in the University’s history.

Sincerely,

David Resnick

University of Indianapolis Board of Trustees

'We won't go back': Hundreds rally for abortion rights at Indiana Statehouse

A few hundred abortion-rights activists gathered outside the Indiana Statehouse on Sunday afternoon — part of a wave of rallies to defend Roe v. Wade and abortion rights in major cities across the country this weekend.

Most attendees had homemade signs made of cardboard, wood or poster boards in hand. Messages were along the lines of: "Abortion is healthcare," "Abortion access saves lives" and "Abortion is a women's right."

Advocates began multiple chants, like "No uterus, no opinion" and "Keep your rosaries out of my ovaries," as they circled the Statehouse complex several times.

The image of a coat hanger made a frequent appearance on advocates' signs, often accompanied with the phrase, "We won't go back."

After Supreme Court documents were leaked exposing the court's plans to overturn Roe v. Wade, uproar has exploded from advocates both online and in protests telling lawmakers to "keep your laws off my body." Sunday's event was part of the ProChoice with Heart movement.

Megan Gunder said she is "pro-living" because she wants the best for the kids and parents. She called the rally's turnout heartwarming.

"I hope and dream for the day that everyone will be wanted," she said. "But, we're not there yet. We need to focus on kids first."

When she used to work at a school, she compared it to working at a correctional facility, due to behavioral issues. Gunder heard stories of fatherless families and many forced to live in cars. She said legal and accessible abortion services would allow people to choose to have kids when they are ready.

Gunder said she knew many who were unable to pursue their educational and career aspirations and ended up working lower-paying service industry jobs because they had to care for a child.

"It's hard to have a parent who doesn't want you," she said.

Hannah Hoffman said she marched because she considers herself a feminist, and it is important for women to have the autonomy to make decisions regarding their own bodies. Hearing about the leaked documents made her fear losing her rights, she said.

"Pregnancy could ruin your life in one moment," she said. "It was scary to think that could just be forced upon me, especially being so young."

Hoffman said the rally sparked some hope for her. Seeing the crowd grow in number and the drivers of cars honk and show their support as they pass by was amazing, she said.
