Elevator Door Mechanism Replaced

This week, the elevator was out of service for parts of three days. The management and board appreciates everyone's patience during this work on the elevator. You may now notice the smoother and faster-responding movement of the elevator door. A special thank you to the gentlemen from the repair company who worked as quickly as possible, and for long hours, to minimize the time the elevator was out of service.
