CONDO VIII NEWSLETTER June 2018
GENERAL MEETING & ELECTION INFORMATION
The Condo 8 General Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 20th at 7:30 PM, in the P.A. Room.
ALL CONDO 8 RESIDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND. If you have questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions for the Condo 8 Board of Managers, this is the time and place for you to be heard.
One of the topics on the agenda will be the Condo 8 Board of Managers Election, which is scheduled for Monday, June 25th. All homeowners are required to vote, otherwise, we will have to hire an outside management company to handle The Board’s responsibilities, thereby increasing common charges for our residents.
Anyone interested in becoming Condo 8 Board Member, please follow the directions on the form you received in the mail. ________________________________________
LITTER – It has been brought to The Board’s attention that trash is being discarded in the parking lot, in the common areas, and on sidewalks. If you see something, say something—if you spot someone littering (e.g.: cigarette butts, McDonald’s bags, cans & bottles, etc.), let The Board know so fines can be issued appropriately.
LANDSCAPING – Wednesdays will be Mowing Day; remove your lawn ornaments and/or decorations beforehand as the landscaper is 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.
BUILDING CAPTAINS – 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 volunteering as a Building Captain should contact The Condo 8 Board.
DOGS – Condo 8 now has a No Dog Policy.
If you are fortunate enough to be permitted to harbor a dog by written Board approval prior to the policy change, you must follow the Condo 8 House Rules for pets. Dogs must be walked on a leash. Owners must pick up after their pets. Owners who do not comply with the rules will be fined and possibly have their dog privileges revoked.
WORTH MENTIONING TO EVERY BRETTON WOODS RESIDENT & THEIR GUESTS
STOP SIGNS – Like all Stop signs within Bretton Woods, the Stop signs at the corner of Birchwood Road @ Skyline Drive are not optional. That corner is a School Bus Stop. If you blow through the Stop sign, you run the risk of running over a child. Cars share these residential roads with pedestrians, so make driving with care your top priority when you are behind the wheel.
DRIVING WITH CELL PHONES – Parents have reported drivers not only blowing the Stop sign at the School Bus Stop at Birchwood Road @ Skyline Drive but doing so while looking down at their cell phones. If you need to use your cellphone while driving, PULL OVER BEFORE YOU RUN SOMEONE OVER.________________________________________
