In addition to board positions, we also welcome the residents of Condo I to volunteer on one of the various committees. The elections will be held at our Open Meeting on Wednesday, June 26th.
Correspondence to the Board of Managers of Condo I Please do not call Board Members at home. All communication, regardless of its nature, should be addressed to the “Board” in writing. You may submit your correspondence in the mail slot where you drop off your work orders and monthly common charges. Additionally, we will not address any anonymous letters. We recently received an anonymous letter but could not act upon it due to inconsistencies with the information provided and we had no one to contact for clarification.
Condo I Beautification We welcome and appreciate everyone’s efforts and contributions to beautifying the Condo I Community. In doing so, please adhere to the following guidelines with regards to landscaping, as outlined in the Architectural Matrix: 1) Planting or any alteration in the common areas must be approved by the Condo I Board; 2) Pachysandra, ivy, or similar ground covering plants are not allowed; and 3) All work must be pre-approved by the Condo I Board.
Work Done by Contractors This work includes replacement of windows, patios, etc. This process starts with a WRITTEN notification to the Board of Manages describing the work to be done. It is the responsibility of the homeowner to provide the Condo I Board of Managers a copy of the contractor’s insurance, workman’s compensation, and a hold harmless form. Please know that the approval process may take up to thirty (30) days, so please be mindful of the Condo I Board meetings as indicated in the Brettonews calendar.
HOA Maintenance & Condo I Contractors Under no circumstances should you tell a maintenance worker or contractor who is conducting work for the condo to do something for you. All personal work requires a work order.
