GoCard machine stolen from Henle laundry room
A GoCard machine used for operating laundry facilities in Henle Village was stolen between midnight and 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
Denise Fung, area coordinator for Henle, emailed residents on Wednesday informing them that the community will likely be billed between $2,000 and $3,000 for the cost of replacing the machine. The cost will be split evenly among Henle residents unless someone comes forward to claim responsibility for the incident.

I want to take a moment to tell you about what has happen in our community so we can work together to build a stronger community.
I was surprised and disheartened to hear yesterday morning before 9:00am that our card swipe to the laundry room was stolen. The swipe was stolen between midnight and 9:00am. Obviously this is unacceptable behavior in our community and puts in question the responsibility of any activities of the night before.
As a result, I will be charging the community the costs of this incident through community billing, likely to range from $2,000-$3,000. The cost will be evenly divided amongst all residents on the community.
Please know that I understand this may have been the result of a few residents in the community, or even guests of the community. It is for this reason that I am asking that the person(s) responsible step forward and own up to the disturbance in the community. If I receive any information as to who may be responsible I can more appropriately assess billing to the community. I will likely assess final charges by Tuesday of next week (March 8th). If the card swipe is found in someone’s apartment there will be judicial action under the Code of Conduct.
Again, I know these incidents are the result of a few, but you are being made aware as this now has become a community and hall concern. Please let this be an opportunity to start a discussion amongst your community to stand up for the type of character and integrity that defines us as a Georgetown community and to work together to both support one another and, at the same time, hold each other accountable to the standards we have all agreed to. I appreciate you taking the time to read this email and I urge each of you to give this topic its due attention. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to talk with your RA or myself.
