Families Still In The Dark From Last Year's Ice Storm

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLSN) - There are still people without power here in Lansing.

A few families in Lansing still continue to rely on their generators for power.

6 News' Savana Ciavatta spoke with a few people who continue to play the waiting game.

Todd Limenstall calls himself a business man and runs a few autopart stores in town. So he knows the importance of providing good service.

But Limenstall says Lansing's Board of Water and Light failed to do that for him.

"This has been a real downfall of their administration," said Limenstall, without power for 11 days.

Limenstall has been without power for 11 days now, but houses on the left and right of him have power.

"We tried to be as patient as we can be." He is slowly losing his patience.

"I did email seven times and went to the walk in center three times, but the communication was just poor."

Todd isn't the only one left without power. A few people are still visiting the BWL's walk-in centers to report and re-report their own power outages

"It's frustrating waiting, you think things are getting better, then something else happens," said Peggy Goff. Goff has also been without power for 11 days and is supposed to leave for Florida in a week, but won't be able to go on vacation if power is not fixed.

"I got water. I want some heat and some lights," said Goff.

As for Limenstall, he says if he had to give a grade for how BWL handeled this whole sitatuion, the company needs to do a bit more studying.

"If you hand that report card out, I don't think they'd get a passing grade."
