Condo II – February 2023
“Too often we under estimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around”.
Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love and lovers. The roots of Valentine’s Day goes back to ancient times, when people paid honor to the Roman God of Fertility. This was known as the Feast of Lupercalia, and was celebrated even then on February 14th.
President’s Day is a day set aside to honor all of the U.S. presidents. We often think of two great presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln when we celebrate this holiday, as it falls by design between their birthdays. More and more of us, look at this day as a tribute to each and every person who has ever served in the office as President of the United States of America. Since 1968, it is observed on the third Monday in February as a national holiday.
During these winter months, ice may cover our roadways. Please be extra careful to observe children crossing the street and residents walking. Also, please take caution to drive a little slower, observe the speed limits and stop signs. Keeping our residents safe is our number one priority.
In regards to snowfall, Condo II provides ice melt. You will find ice melt at each side of your building. Please feel free to take some and use this for your patio. Please remember that our contractor will not begin shoveling sidewalks until the snow has completely stopped and there is at least two inches on the ground. Please take extra care in poor weather conditions.
We have completed our tree trimming project for the year. Trees will be handled on an as needed emergency basis during the winter and the program will resume in the spring.
We just learned that Optimum will be upgrading all of their cable lines to fiber in our community. This will be a project handled by the HOA and Optimum. Please be on the lookout for further information.
If you wish to have access to the basement, it is open without an appointment on the second Saturday and the fourth Sunday between 11:00 am and 11:15 am. If you require access to the basement at another time, please submit a work order and someone will contact you.
In regards to fire prevention, as part of our health and safety concerns, Condo II requires all units with gas heaters to have them inspected and cleaned by a licensed, certified provider. Please remember that this cost is the homeowner’s responsibility. You are free to use the vendor of your choice. Once this work has been completed at your unit, the Board asks that we are supplied with written proof signed by the vendor you used. We appreciate your compliance greatly regarding the importance of safety in our community.
