Condo VII Annual Meeting
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, Condo VII will not hold its annual meeting in September. We will provide you with a wrap-up of the 2019-2020 year and the 2020-2021 budget when your coupon books are mailed out later this month.
Common Charges
The Board would like to remind all residents that the Common Charges are due on the 1st of the month. Payments received after the 10th will incur a late fee of $25.00
(The late fee will be increasing to $50.00 as of October)
Monthly Homeowner Information
As noted in the August Brettonews, the Fire Marshal issued a directive regarding dryer vents and firewalls. This directive requires us to inspect all attics, connect all of the dryer lines to an outside vent, and repair any breaches in the attic firewalls. The Board has hired Harbor Hills Construction to perform this work for the Condo. We are requesting the cooperation of all residents so we can complete this in a timely manner.
The expense of this work will make it necessary for the Board to impose a small assessment for one-year. We regret the need for this action, however, feel this is better than a large common charge increase.
The Board will deal with Termites and Carpenter Ant issues.
The wooded areas are sprayed twice a year.
The board is seeking residents who are knowledgeable in Insurance issues and Construction issues to act as advisors to the board. Please put your expertise to use in helping your fellow Condo VII residents.
Please update your Emergency Contact information. Every resident should have at least one working # and preferably two.
Please remember that all vehicles must be parked “Head In” only. No backing into spaces is permitted. Parking spaces may be used by anyone and are not assigned. Please be courteous.
Handicapped Spaces are not assigned and may be used by anyone with a Valid Permit. Please be courteous.
Anyone parking in a Handicapped Space without a Valid Permit may be towed at the owner’s expense.
Smoke Alarms Testing
The Bi-Annual testing remains suspended until safe to do so. You are encouraged to test your own alarm. Submit a work order for any non-working alarms or continuous chirping sounds. Condo VII covers the cost to replace the alarm.
Litter
We all enjoy our community. Please keep it neat and clean by placing any trash on the ground into the Dumpsters. Thank you.
Remember
Thank a Veteran for their Service whenever the opportunity presents itself. This small act will make them happy.
Thought for the month
“Act as if what you do makes a difference. IT DOES.”
William James
Stay safe and continue to enjoy the Summer
