3: Complaint Regarding Water Charges


The Zonal Assistant Commissioner,
Municipal Corporation,
Flint, Michigan.


Humble apologies to inform you that I have not yet get Water Meter fitted at my house although the asked deposit was already made about eleven months back. With the fact that I have not water meter at my home, yet I am being billed USD 35.95 each month.

Worse of all is summer months when we do not get sufficient water for drinking and taking bath and yet we have to pay the same amount each month.

From time and again I have approached your subordinates requesting them for arranging a water meter but always lame excuse has been given.

I know it for certain that because of an acute shortage of water in Flint it may not be possible to increase the supply of water in our locality but you can certainly arrange water to relieve me of the burden of extra payment I am being asked to make.

Please note further, in case no meter is arranged within a month, I shall not only stop making payments to your bills from next month but shall also take legal action at your risk and cost.

Thank You.

Yours Faithfully,
Brandon Brine

7: Complaint About a Cinema


Deputy Commissioner,

Dear Sir,

We the undersigned inhabitants of XYZ Society bring it to your kind notice that “ABC Cinema” located in our society, is a cause of irritation and annoyance to all the inhabitants of the society.

The situation becomes worse in the night when the last show is over. People come out singing vulgar songs and using similar language. Not only the sleep is disturbed but also the atmosphere, especially for the female sex, is spoiled.

As you are aware of the inhabitants of the colony come from the middle class, it is but necessary to have complete rest at the night.

We have already pointed out this difficulty in our previous three letters but regret to say that no action has been taken by you so far. We, therefore, request you once again to please instruct the Cinema authorities to change the existing gates of the Cinema to the eastern side.

Please note, if no action is taken within one month from the date of this letter, we shall be obliged to take legal action at your risk and cost.

Your Faithfully,
