Condo II – July 2021
“A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawnmower is broken” We hope that everyone is enjoying their summer.
Happy Fourth of July to all our residents, their families, and friends. The Fourth of July, or Independence Day, the Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence, setting the 13 colonies on the road to freedom as a sovereign nation. People and communities across the nation mark this American midsummer holiday with parades, firework displays, red, white, and blue flags, picnics, backyard barbecues, and performances of The Star-Spangled Banner. How fortunate we are to be celebrating our country’s anniversary. Land of the free; home of the brave.
As you all know our fence project is underway. Some buildings have been completed. We have been informed by Craftsman Fence that there is a supply issue regarding materials which has delayed the project. We will all have new fences soon; it may just take a little longer than we expected. If you have any questions or concerns, please direct them to Craftsman Fence at 631-878-6303.
With the warm summer weather, it is imperative that we heighten our responsibility and please take great care while driving through our community for the safety of our residents. 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 observe the speed limits and stop signs. Keeping our residents safe is our number one priority
Please keep in mind that we live in a community relatively close to one another. Please remember to be respectful of noise levels, especially after hours. 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.
Condo II is currently working on setting up a gutter project. If you have an issue pertaining to gutters, please submit a work order in detail. If you have previously submitted a work order for gutters and the work has not been completed, please submit another one.
We are working with Bravo, our roofing contractor to assess and repair/replace roofs. We will work in an order replacing/repairing the roofs that need it the most first. We are also looking into having some trees trimmed in Condo II. It will follow the same order as roofs. Trimming the trees that need it the most first.
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. (Once again please follow social distancing guidelines)

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.

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.
