Condo 2 – December 2018
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food, and warmth. For the touch of a friendly hand, and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home”.
Condo II wishes everyone and their families a very Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah.
Please remember to be extra careful while driving through our community. Roads may be icy and slippery. Also, be mindful of children crossing the street to get on and off the school bus. When the school bus stops, please make sure you stop your vehicle until it is safe to continue. Take caution to drive a little slower, observe the speed limits and stop signs. Keeping our residents safe is our number one priority.
For the safety of our animals here in Condo II, please keep your dogs inside where they are safe. Dogs should NEVER be left alone on outside patios. This is a very real danger to them for many reasons. Remember if you are cold, so are they. Also, please keep your cats inside where they are safe. There are many dangers outside for animals that are allowed to roam freely. Remember outdoor cats are NOT allowed.
Condo II will continue the fall cleanup as per our contract with Executive Landscaping. In regards to snowfall, Condo II provides ice melt and sand. You will find ice melt at each side of your building. Please feel free to take some and use this for your patio. The sand is located in the parking lots. Our contractor will not begin shoveling sidewalks until the snow has completely stopped and there is at least two inches on the ground. Please take extra care in poor weather conditions.
We have a lot of snowbirds in Condo II. If you know you will be away from your home for an extended period of time, please leave a key with your neighbor in the event there is an emergency, fire alarm inspection etc.
For those of you who are unaware, Condo II has upgraded our fire alarm system to a central station. This means that when the fire alarm goes off, it immediately notifies the fire department to respond to your unit. The fire alarm company will also contact the Board of Managers. This also means that we need to be extra diligent to not set these alarms off falsely. If a unit continually sets off false alarms, you will be fined.
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 and or walking to each neighbor, providing the situation is safe, 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. Safety is our number one priority.
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 fined. Condo II does not want the safety of any resident compromised. Thank you for your compliance.
In regards to fire prevention, as part of our health and safety concerns, Condo II requires all units with gas heaters to have them inspected and cleaned by a licensed, certified provider. Please remember that this cost is the homeowner’s responsibility. You are free to use the vendor of your choice. Once this work has been completed at your unit, the Board asks that we are supplied with written proof signed by the vendor you used. We appreciate your compliance greatly regarding the importance of safety in our community.
