Condominium VIII – Board of Managers

BRETTON WOODS CONDO 8 NEWSLETTER
June 2017

The Board would like to thank the dedicated Building Captains for another successful round of Smoke Detector Testing, which helps keep everyone safe. And thanks to the residents who complied, making the Building Captains’ job easier. The list of noncompliant residents will be sent to the Brookhaven Fire Marshal’s office. Anyone interested in getting involved as a Building Captain, please email the Board.

LANDSCAPING
Tuesday is mowing day, so remove lawn ornaments and/or decorations beforehand as the landscaper is not responsible for damage to these items. If you are contemplating any planting, submit a work order so that the Board can approve it—no ground covering plants, please. Steve’s Sprinklers checked our sprinkler system; broken heads were replaced. Ground applications have been completed.

KEYS
In case of an emergency while you are away from home, leave a spare key with a neighbor within the community or nearby, and let the Board know who to contact if the spare key is needed.

UNIT NUMBERS
All units should be clearly marked with the address number in case of an emergency.

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY Dial 911
Do not call the gatehouse, clubhouse, board member, building captain, or neighbor.

BARBEQUES
Barbeques on Upper Lamont decks must be electric only—propane and charcoal are not permitted. All other units are permitted to have charcoal or propane barbeques, but they must be stored or used away from vinyl siding and fence. Do not leave barbeques unattended while in use.

DRYER VENTS
Avoid a potential fire hazard by submitting a work order for a free annual cleaning.

CONTRACTORS
Contractors must cart away debris from work done in your unit, including deliveries such as appliances, furniture, carpeting, and boxes.
WORK ORDERS
When you have work that needs to be done in your unit, the proper channel is to put a work order in. Do not call people on your own and expect the condo to pay for the work when it is done. If we don’t know anything about it, it never happened.
DUMPSTER, TRASH, AND CIGARETTE BUTTS
Let’s keep our community clean. Do not toss trash, beverage bottles, or cigarette butts on the ground, in the common areas, or the parking lot. Extinguished cigarette butts may be thrown away in the dumpsters or in your own personal trashcan at home. 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.

BASEMENT
For access, you must make an appointment with the Condo 8 Board. Send an email to brettonwoodscondo8@gmail.com or submit a work order with the requested date and time. Belongings must be clearly marked with your name and unit number; unlabeled items in the basement will be thrown out. Paint cans, tires, or other flammable items can NOT be stored in the basement.

PARKING SPACES
Parking spaces are not assigned spots. 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. Rear-in parking will be permitted during snowy conditions.

PETS
Before bringing home a pet, contact the Condo 8 Board of Managers for pre-approval. Cats must be kept indoors—no outdoor cats allowed. Dog owners must pick up after their pets—“Good dogs have owners that only leave dog prints behind. SCOOP IT, BAG IT, TRASH IT.” Walk dogs only along Skyline Drive or Birchwood Road NOT on lawns, wooded areas, and common areas in Condo 8.
