Condominium VIII – Board of Managers

CONDO VIII NEWSLETTER October 2017

DAYS ARE COOLER ~ NIGHTS ARE LONGER ~ AND LEAVES ARE FALLING
Drive with extra care as wet leaves on asphalt reduces traction under your tires. Farewell to our snowbirds, see you next year.

SMOKE ALARMS AND WATER HEATERS
Testing in all units will be done toward the mid/end of October. Flyers will be distributed letting you know when Building Captains are coming. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Homeowners not in compliance must be reported to the Brookhaven Fire Marshal.

SNOWBIRDS
Before leaving for the season, make sure there is an up-to-date emergency contact number listed with the BW Office and Condo 8 Board of Managers, and leave a spare key with a neighbor. BW Maintenance will drain the hot water heater at your expense. Prevent potentially expensive water damage to your unit and your adjoining neighbors’ by shutting off the water to your hot water heater and washing machine. Also, turn off the circuit breaker to your hot water heater. Contact the Board to get your hot water heater and fire alarm checked by your building captain before you leave for the season.

COMMON CHARGES
Booklets should have been received. Contact the Board if you haven’t gotten a new booklet or if you have any questions on the recent increase.

HURRICANE SEASON
We are in hurricane season until the end of November. A few items to keep on hand include: bottled water, non-perishable food, flashlights, batteries, medications, a first aid kit, and cash.
The American Red Cross has a Free Hurricane App that sends alerts to Smart Phone users—visit their website: http://www.redcross.org/prepare/disaster/hurricane. And in preparation for winter, it’s a good idea to keep a snow shovel in your unit.

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
Call 911—not the gatehouse, clubhouse, board members, or neighbors.

DRYER VENTS
Lint accumulation in dryer venters will become a fire hazard. Submit a work order to schedule a free annual dryer vent cleaning.
PARKING SPACES
Parking spaces are not assigned spots. Park nose-in only; backing into parking spaces is permitted when there is snow. Park within the lines—one space per vehicle. If you will not be moving your car for seven consecutive days, put it in the long-term parking by the mailboxes in PP17A to free up spaces for other residents. Call 852-COPS regarding vehicles parked in handicap spaces without displaying the appropriate permit.
