EMERGENCY CONTACTS
All residents should have one or two current Emergency Contacts on file to be contacted only in the event of an Emergent situation. Please e-mail Gina@brettonwoodshoa.org
COMMON CHARGES
The Board would like to remind you that common charges are still due and payable by the first of the month. Thank you.
SMOKE ALARMS
The testing of the Smoke Alarms is still on hold. This will be done as soon as it is safe to do so. Feel free to test the alarm on your own. If the alarm fails to sound or if it starts to constantly chirp, it will need to be replaced. Put in a work order and the Board will follow up to make sure that it is replaced. Use the website www.brettonwoodshoa.org to submit your workorder. Detail the work to be done and add Condo VII and your Phone # at the top of the form.
A Working Smoke Alarm Is for Everyone’s Safety!
LAWYER
Edward Taylor has been hired as the new Condo VII Legal Representative. He will be addressing the failure of a few homeowners to pay past due Common Charges.
MONTHLY HOMEOWNER INFORMATION
Gutters will be cleaned twice a year in the Spring and the Fall.
A gutter guard system which would eliminate the need for bi-annual cleanings is being considered and will be evaluated.

HOSE BIB VALVE REMINDER
If you have access to the inside valve that controls the outside spigot, please make sure that it is turned on in the Spring and left on until the Fall. Thank you.
LITTER
We need to work together to keep our community looking beautiful. Trash on the ground is unsightly and unsanitary. Cigarette butts, gloves and masks should all be placed in the Dumpsters. Your cooperation is appreciated.
INSURANCE
Our insurance broker, Bradley & Parker, will be invited to attend the June meeting to review our insurance coverage.
BASEMENTS
The basement on Hilltop Ct. is in serious need of a clean-up and July has been designated as Clean the Basements Month.
There are piles of items that are not labeled, and many items stored incorrectly. All items must be in plastic or metal containers or barrels on a wooden pallet. Cardboard boxes are not a good idea due to the dampness in the basement. Nothing should be left loose. Everything needs to labeled with your name, address and telephone number. This includes bicycles. We suggest you use a tarp (and label it) to cover your items in the event any leaks occur. No inflammable, combustible, explosive material, upholstered furniture (couches, mattresses, chairs, etc.), and/or car tires may be stored.
In addition, there are items that have been in the basement for years and have not been used by the owners. We have limited space and the basement is not a permanent storage facility. It should only be used for seasonal items. If you have things that do not fit in your house and you still wish to keep them, please rent an outside storage unit.
We will have the basement open on Saturday, July 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. so you can properly store, label and clean out your items. If you are unable to make it that day, send an email to BrettonWoodsCondo7@gmail.com so we can arrange a time for your access. Anything that is not properly stored and labeled or left loose at the end of the month, will be discarded. We appreciate your cooperation.
REMEMBER
To thank a Veteran for your Independence, not only on the 4th of July but every day. Thank you for your Service to all past and present members of the Military.
THOUGHT FOR THE MONTH
