Dear Tony: We have a catch 22 problem. We bought a new electric vehicle six months ago and stupidly assumed that our strata would simply let us modify a parking space for a charging station. “Note to everyone in a strata, never assume anything in a strata is that easy.” So now I am relying on my husband’s workplace to charge our vehicle, and other public locations around the city.
