Condo 2 – June 2018
“Oh June it’s been a while since I’ve seen you last”
Welcome, June!! There are a few important days to celebrate in June. Summer solstice is celebrated on June 21st and is the longest day of the year! Summer Solstice is the start of summer. It’s time to enjoy vacations, great weather, pools, the beach, and everything else that goes along with it.
Father’s Day is also celebrated on Sunday, June 17th. A day to honor, enjoy time with and appreciate fatherhood. It began on July 19, 1910, when the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day. What a perfect opportunity to wish all the fathers out there a very Happy Father’s Day!!
Our community is a wonderful place to enjoy our summer months outside. Please take great care while driving through for the safety of our residents. Pay attention to new stop signs added as well as parking rules. You will notice many of us are outside enjoying a nice walk with or without our dog(s), jogging and our children are playing. Please drive a little slower and always observe the speed limits and stop signs. Keeping our residents safe is our number one priority.
Since we live in a community, relatively close to one another, please remember to be respectful of noise levels. Bear in mind that if you can hear your music or television in another room, then the chances are your neighbors can hear it too. Please be considerate and kind to one another. Also, please be respectful when parking your vehicle. Take great care not to take up two spots with one car. If you are a household with many vehicles or have many visitors, please try and accommodate your neighbors so that everyone can have a spot in their parking lot. As we all know, parking is limited. Please be kind to one another.
As a reminder to all please keep clutter away from the furnace in the utility room. It is an extreme fire hazard and is very important to keep you, as well as your neighbors safe. Knowing the steps to take for fire prevention is the best and only way to avoid a potential fire.
In regards to fire alarms, if the fire alarm goes off, and there is a fire in your unit, leave your unit immediately and call 911. Please try to ensure the safety of your neighbors by calling, or if the situation is safe, walk outside to each neighbor informing them of the fire. If the alarm was set off by accident, call or walk outside to each neighbor informing them that it is a false alarm. Please do your best to make sure that everyone is safe. The fire alarm company will contact the Board of Managers. Safety is our number one priority. By now all the fire alarm inspections have been completed. If you missed your date, there will be a second free make up inspection on Monday, June 4th. There is no set schedule for this inspection as it is an all day process. If the second free inspection is missed, you will have to schedule a fire alarm inspection on your own time. Please note that this inspection is not free. You will be charged a fee. Please do not underestimate the importance of these fire alarm system inspections. It is for the safety and well being of you and your family, as well as to your neighbors. Please also remember, it is extremely important that no resident tamper with the alarms inside your unit. This is very dangerous and puts not only your safety in jeopardy but your neighbors as well. Please do not touch these alarms. If it is noticed that the alarms were tampered with, you will be charged a fee. Condo II does not want the safety of any resident compromised. Thank you for your compliance.
For the safety of our animals here in Condo II, please keep cats as indoor pets only. There are many dangers outside for animals that are allowed to roam freely. To prevent this, as well as other problems, please keep your cats inside where they are safe. Outdoor cats are not allowed. Dogs are also not allowed on the patio unsupervised. Please remember when walking your dog(s), to pick up after them. Also, please check yourselves and your fur babies for ticks. It is extremely important to remove ticks as soon as you find one to prevent further complications. They are nasty little creatures that can cause some serious health issues. Follow tips to prevent ticks by avoiding wooded and brushy areas that may have high grass, also, use repellent that contains 20 percent or more of DEET. You can protect your fur babies with over the counter tick preventions or look into non-toxic prevention as well.
It is also very important to be a considerate dog owner and remember to bag it and trash it. Please respect your community and your neighbors. Thank you in advance for your compliance.
Our next Condo II meeting will be June 19th. Hope to see you there.
