CONDO VIII NEWSLETTER December 2017
Thank You to the Building Captains—Christel Gelman, Jim Dunn, Gene Kancirik, Debbie Penney, Michelle Rutman, the coordinator, and Mike Perry, for filling in—for testing smoke detectors and checking water heaters during October.
Before leaving for the season, make sure there is an up-to-date emergency contact number listed with the Bretton Woods Office and Condo 8 Board of Managers, and leave a spare key with a neighbor. Bretton Woods 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.
Sprinklers have been winterized. Gutter cleaning will proceed later in the month, once the majority of the leaves have come down.
If you are doing major renovations inside your unit, please inform your adjoining neighbors as a courtesy because noise travels easily between the walls and ceilings/floors.
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
Call 911—not the gatehouse, clubhouse, board members, or neighbors.
Submit a work order to schedule a free annual dryer vent cleaning because lint accumulation in dryer venters are a fire hazard.
Parking spaces are not assigned spots. Park within the lines—1 space per vehicle. If you will not be moving your car for 7 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.
Trash belongs in the dumpsters. Don’t throw paper cups, beverage bottles, loose papers, wrappers, and cigarette butts on the ground, in the common areas, or the parking lot. This is our home, let’s keep it clean. Homeowners may discard large items beside dumpsters—not in front of or leaning against dumpsters—on Sunday and Thursday evenings for HOA pickup on Monday and Friday mornings. Thank you for your cooperation.
Contractors must cart away debris from work done in your unit, including deliveries such as appliances and furniture.
Unlabeled furniture in the basement will be thrown out; if it is yours, label it asap. For access, you must make an appointment. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a work order with the requested date and time. Belongings must be clearly marked with your name and unit number. No paint cans, tires, or other flammable objects can be stored in the basement.
