Power Washing:
There has been a proposal for power washing for all Condo IV buildings. In anticipation of this being scheduled, notification will be given via a blast call for the dates and addresses affected. All homeowners will be responsible for turning on the water to the outside water spigot. Options for patio and fence washing will be offered and done at the residents/owner’s expense.
Friendly Reminders:
If your unit has an inside valve that controls the outside water spigot, please make sure it has been turned on. It should remain on for the entire summer and turned off in October.
Did you know that you should replace your washing machine hoses every 5 years to avoid bursting and possible flooding?
Hot Water Heaters: They do not last forever. The typical lifespan is 8 to 10 years.
PLEASE do not leave large items that you are disposing of in front of the dumpster. Please be considerate and put it on the side of the dumpster. The garbage men cannot get out of their truck to move these items and will not pick up the garbage. Also, garbage should not be stored on your patio, not in bags or pails. This includes cat litter, dirty diapers, etc.; Garbage will attract raccoons and rats.
Nothing should be screwed or nailed into the aluminum siding. Also, to keep our fences nice, please do not hang flowering baskets, vines, or ornaments on them.
Tiki torches are not permitted in Bretton Woods because of the close proximity to your neighbors and the risk of a fire.
Barbecues: Please be sure to keep your BBQ at least 10 feet from the building or as far away as possible. Barbecuing with propane or charcoal on the Upper Lamont unit’s balcony is strictly prohibited.

CONDO IV (CONTINUED) MAY 2021

With the nicer weather approaching, please enjoy the outdoors and sports that you may be involved in and also the many amenities offered here at Bretton Woods. Please be aware of people walking and drive slower and stop at the stop signs!
Landscaping: Our landscapers will handle our regular lawn maintenance, seeding, fertilizing, and various beautification projects. The flowering shrubs are pruned and after they bloom usually sometime in July. Also, Ivy and pachysandra are invasive and prohibited.
Smoke Alarms: Remember to replace the batteries once a year.
Is your house number visible? All units should be clearly marked with the address number in case of an emergency. It should be placed either on the fence or door. It has been noticed that some homes do not have a number at all or have worn off. We cannot stress how important this is.
