Condo I – September 2022
Condo 1 Open Meeting –Rosh Hashanah falls on our regular meeting date, therefore our next open meeting will be held a week earlier on Tuesday, September 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Performing Arts Room.
Condo 1 Secretary – Trudy Amatulli has agreed to serve as secretary for Condo I. Thank you, Trudy!
Commons Charge Booklets – Your new Commons Charge booklets will arrive by mail sometime this month. Common Charges are due the 1st of the month. Payments received after the 10th of the month will incur a $50 late fee.
Update Your Contact Information – Have you changed your phone number? Did you get rid of your landline and now use only your cell phone? Are your emergency contacts and their phone numbers still the same? Please contact Gina at the front desk to update your contact information if anything has changed.
Blast Calls – If you are not getting the Bretton Woods HOA and Condo One blast calls by telephone, inform Gina and she will put you on the list.
Landscaper – Snow and Mow, Inc. bought Fragala Landscaping and will finish out the current contract ending 12/31/2022.
Parking Lot Striping – The striping of all Condo I parking lots should be finished by now.
Fences – To keep your fence looking nice and clean simply hose it off. For tougher stains, use an environmentally safe soap mixed with water and a soft brush to wash it. Power washing the CertainTeed Bufftech fence is NOT recommended because it can damage the surface.
Remember a vinyl fence is plastic and the heat from a barbeque can melt and warp it. All barbeques must be ten feet away from any combustible surface by law.
Furnace/AC – There is a filter in your furnace/air conditioning unit that must be changed according to the manufacturer’s recommendation written on the filter packaging. You should expect to change a one inch pleated filter every 60-90 days. Changing your filter when it is due will help to keep your HVAC unit running more efficiently and related energy costs down. It will also allow you to breathe cleaner air.
Litter – Litter has been noticed by the first hole for golf. Please, do not litter and do not permit your guests to litter our beautiful grounds.
Garbage – Winter Brothers collects our garbage on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Please do not leave garbage sitting on the patio outside your unit. Promptly dispose trash in the dumpster. If the dumpster is full, please take your trash to another dumpster. Do not leave bags of trash on top of or outside the dumpster. Please break down large boxes before disposal.
Special Large Item Garbage Pick Up – On Monday and Friday morning, maintenance picks up special items that do not belong in the dumpster with our regular trash. Large items such as furniture, broken vacuum cleaners, a TV, mattresses, lamps, and more should not be put in the dumpster. Instead, place these special items all the way to the right or the left of the dumpster, away from the dumpster, and never leaning on the dumpster. Do not put large items in the dumpster or in front of the dumpster. For Monday pick up, place large items out Sunday night. For Friday pick up, place items out Thursday night. If you get a new kitchen appliance, make sure the delivery person takes the old one away. Old dishwashers, refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, and so on do not belong in the dumpster. Please make sure the delivery person knows not to put anything in our dumpsters. Contractors must take all construction debris away.
Car Mechanics – As per the Condo 1 Prospectus, Section 8 (k) of the House Rules, “no repair of motor vehicles shall be made in any of the roadways, driveways or parking areas of the Condominium nor shall such areas be used for storage or long term parking of any automobile, boat, trailer, camper, bus, truck or commercial vehicle…”
Reminders for you and your guests about your pipes
• Flush only toilet paper and what nature intends. Do not flush wipes. Wipes clog pipes. Even items that say “flushable” can clog your pipes and lead to costly cleanouts.
• Do not put grease or food down the kitchen sink because it will clog your pipes. Instead, put grease and food scraps in the garbage.
Work Orders – You may access the online Work Order Portal at www.brettonwoodshoa.org
Walkways – Please walk on the paved walkways and not on the grassy areas. This is for a person’s safety, as well as, to protect the lawn from damage.
Back to school days are here again!
Drive safely. The speed limit in Bretton Woods is 25 m.p.h.
