CONDO VIII NEWSLETTER June 2019
CONDO 8 BOARD ELECTION
The Condo 8 Board Election will be held Monday, June 24, 7-8pm in the Clubhouse Library. Official ballots were sent to residents via U.S. Mail. If you did not receive your ballot, contact the Board. Ballots can be dropped off in the Common Charges Mailbox at the clubhouse, or you can hand-deliver your ballot at the time of the election. If you have any questions, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fridays will be Mowing Day. Remove your lawn ornaments and/or decorations beforehand as the AMC landscapers are not responsible for damage to these items. Before planting in a common area, you must submit a work order so that the Board can approve it—no ground covering plants, please. Do not cut down trees or bushes that you did not plant without confirming with The Board.
ANNUAL BASEMENT CLEANOUT
The Condo 8 basement will be cleaned out in June. All items NOT identified and covered will be discarded. A blast-call will go out to advise residents when the basement will be open. There are abandoned items belonging to former residents, so if you know anyone who has moved either contact them or notify the Board of their new phone number. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Newsday subscribers who leave tips for the home delivery of the newspaper should not mail it because your specific carrier does not receive the tip; it will go directly to the distributor instead. To tip your newspaper carrier directly, place it in a plain white envelope—not the Newsday envelope—and tape it to your front door, marked Newsday.
Work orders can now be submitted online at the Bretton Woods website:
Please advise your guests of the Condo 8 House Rules and By-Laws and request they follow the same guidelines as those who live here. ALL Residents are responsible for the actions of their visitors—within Condo 8, as well as the entire Brettonwoods Community—including, but not limited to, proper parking, driving the speed limit, obeying community Stop signs, utilizing the clubhouse facilities, and appropriate disposal of trash and cigarette butts: Fines WILL be imposed on the homeowner for their guest’s failure to do so.
TRASH DISPOSAL and DUMPSTERS
Dumpsters are for HOUSEHOLD trash only. Oversized items such as tables, chairs, furniture, toys, lamps, drywall, doors, toilets, mattresses, carpeting, and contractor debris, as well as paint cans, do NOT belong in our dumpsters: These things MUST be placed off to the side of and not touching the dumpster. Trash should NOT block, lean against, or be placed in such a way that it prevents the garbage truck from accessing dumpsters. On Monday and Friday mornings, HOA Maintenance picks up the items prohibited in dumpsters. Residents doing their own home demolition/renovation should call Maintenance to arrange a special pick-up. Cardboard boxes should be flattened and disposed of in the recycling bins located along the main roads throughout the complex.
We are all connected through the pipeline, so let’s avoid clogging it up for everyone. Cooking oils and meat fats do not belong down the drain; store it in a jar or can, then dispose of it in the dumpster with your kitchen trash. Only bodily waste and toilet paper should be flushed down toilets. All other items—including, but not limited to, diapers, tampons, tissues, cotton balls, Q-tips, kitty litter—do not belong down the toilet.
