Lincoln Manor property manager responds to bed bug issue

LINCOLN, Mich. — You may recall our story from last week where residents at Lincoln Manor were voicing concerns about a bed bug issue.  Their management office has reached out to us to provide an update on this matter.

The issue of bed bugs at Lincoln manor dates back to  approximately 2018.

According to Lincoln Manor, Property Manager, Melvin Ward, they are doing all they can to get the problem under control.

One 92–year–old resident, whose apartment was infested with bed bugs, received a notice that her lease will not be renewed.  Ward denies that the renewal has to do with her infestation but rather with her ability to maintain her apartment.

Ward says they have been unable to get rid of the bed bugs in this tenants apartment.

He said they are not an assisted living facility but an apartment complex and they do inspections on the apartments as well as welfare checks on the tenants.

We asked where the tenant will go and Ward said  it’s up to her family to help find her a place.

Ward claims both Alpena and Michigan as a whole is facing a huge bed bug problem.
