Feel free to bring a side dish or dessert

ELECTIONS
 We appreciate all the residents who took the time to send in their votes.
 Thank You to the Board — made up of volunteer-residents who dedicate their time for the betterment of everyone in our community — your service is greatly appreciated.
 Without volunteers, we must hire an outside management company, which will increase everyone’s common charges. Find out how YOU can get involved by emailing the Board.

ELECTRICAL AND PLUMBING WORK
Residents must notify the Board via a work order before any ELECTRICIAL or PLUMBING work begins, to ensure the work is in accordance with condo rules. Work must be performed by a licensed and insured electrician or plumber. Contractors must name BRETTON WOODS CONDO 8 as additional co-insured.

WORK ORDERS
When you have work that needs to be done by maintenance, the proper channel is to submit a work order first. Do not hire people on your own and expect the Condo to pay for the work when it’s done. Work orders are available at the front desk of the clubhouse. Be sure to save the top copy of the work order for your records.

CONTRACTORS
Contractors must cart away debris from work done in your unit.

LANDSCAPING
Bush pruning was completed in July.
ANTS
The ant problem seems to have subsided, however, if you have an issue with them, here is a sugar and boric acid recipe that will help:

Ingredients & Supplies
• 1 cup sugar
• 3 tablespoons boric acid
• 3 cups boiling water
• A mason jar for storage (this concoction will keep for a while)
• Cotton balls to absorb bait
• Lids (baby food jar lids, Snapple bottle caps, or something similar, to hold the cotton ball filled with bait)

Directions
1. Boil water, then mix in the sugar and boric acid, stirring so it dissolves completely.
2. Store the concoction in a mason jar.
3. When ready to use, saturate a cotton ball in the concoction and place it inside the lid. Put the lid with the cotton ball near the ant-area (but out of reach of pets and children).
4. Once ants find the bait, they will take it back to their nest to share.

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 and used away from vinyl siding and fence. Do not leave barbeques unattended while in use.

DUMPSTER, TRASH, AND CIGARETTE BUTTS
 Homeowners may discard large items beside dumpsters — NOT IN FRONT OF OR LEANING AGAINST DUMPSTERS – on Sunday and Thursday evenings for pickup by the HOA on Monday and Friday mornings.
 Do not toss cigarette butts on the ground, in the common areas, or the parking lot. Extinguished cigarette butts must be thrown away in the dumpsters or in your own personal trash can at home.
 Trash in general must be thrown away in dumpsters, not on the ground. Bag your trash since loose items escape when the garbage truck turns the dumpsters upside down.
 Let’s ALL keep our community clean.
