Condominium VI – Board of Managers

Condo VI-  February 2021

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.” -Albert Einstein-

Here we are in February, and not much has changed. We hope everyone is staying healthy and following Covid-19 protocols. Now that the vaccine is being offered, maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Keep warm, and continue to stay healthy!

Welcome to new residents, Ken Danielsen, at 248B, and Christopher Annese, at 201B.

*February Birthday wishes go out to Bob Lagerenne, Tammy Kusa, Michael Germano, Arlette Giliberto, and Robert Als.
*Happy anniversary to Jeanette and Tony Odierna and Bill and Isabel Desmond. Congratulations to all!

A friendly reminder, your Board of Managers is comprised of volunteers who work very hard to keep CondoVI going with few problems. Please do not call any Board member at home. If you have an issue, a work order should be submitted online, and it will be taken care of in a timely manner. The maintenance department is open Monday through Friday, and may not be called in over the weekend, unless an emergency exists, i.e. frozen pipes, etc. We are always in need of volunteers to test smoke alarms, or be on committees. Come to one of our meetings to volunteer.

Winter reminders;
Upper Lamont residents- you are responsible to clear the snow from your balcony every time it snows to prevent leaking into your neighbor’s home below you. If damage occurs, you will be financially responsible.

If the temperature drops below 20 degrees, it is advisable to leave a faucet dripping slightly.

If you haven’t already done it, and we have a warm day, remove your hose from the hose bib. Be sure the water is turned off from inside.

Pet Reminders-We have had multiple complaints of dogs being allowed to run loose without leashes in the street and on the golf course. All dogs must be on a leash when on common property. Dogs should never be left to bark on your patio late at night, disturbing neighbors. Please respect the rules and your neighbors. Clean up after your pet, and keep it leashed properly. Unfortunately, even after many reminders, residents are still walking their dogs in the common areas! Please keep our areas clean!

FYI: Recyclable dumpsters on Birchwood are no longer recyclable. Winter Bros. now sorts the trash at its plant. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to sort your trash. The dumpsters on Hilltop and Bretton Woods Drive will also follow suit, as stated in Craig’s letter in the January issue of the Bretton Woods Newsletter.

Snow Reminders again;

There is no parking on Hilltop Court if it’s snowing, or if there is an impending snowstorm. There is no parking on the south side of Birchwood Road from December 1st to April 30th. Cars will be subject to towing at the owner’s expense. There is no parking next to the island at Parking Lot 47 if snow is in the forecast.

After a snowstorm, once the HOA plows the roadway, move your car out of the parking plaza.
When the parking areas are plowed, move your car off the roadway back into the parking plaza.

To prevent exhaust fumes from entering homes along the parking lots, only head in parking is permitted.

Our landscaper will only shovel our sidewalks if we have more than 2 inches of snow, and only after it has stopped snowing.

Dates to remember: 2/2-Ground Hog Day, 2/14-Valentine’s Day, 2/15-Presidents’ Day, 2/17-Ash Wednesday.

We send our condolences to the family of Pauline Farina, on her passing in January. Our thoughts are with you.

Our next open Condo 6 meeting will be announced.
