There will be an open Condo 3 meeting to discuss our budget on Wednesday September 21 at 7pm in the PA room.
Budget: The Board has been working on developing the Condo III budget for fiscal year 2022 – 2023. Given the current state of our economy, our community is faced with increasing costs and needed infrastructure repairs. Costs have increased on everything from our utilities to fuel and materials and our contractors and vendors have all increased their prices as well. Please remember that we have no control over the HOA common charges, the reimbursables, and the MPAU expenses – we simply collect these monies on behalf of HOA and MPAU. As with our own budgets at home, there are some things that we must do and some things that we would like to do, along with things we will have to do without. Please be assured that we prepare our budget with all these considerations in mind. We try to keep our Condo III expenses as low as reasonably possible.
Elections: Elections for the Condo III Board of Managers will take place at our Annual Meeting on Wednesday October 19th in the card room at 7pm. Applications and proxy forms will be mailed to each homeowner before the election. Serving on the Board is a volunteer position that requires a commitment of time, energy, ideas, and a genuine interest in the ongoing management of our community. Any homeowner is eligible to serve on the Board. You must submit an application in advance if you have an interest in running for one of our open positions. Applications must be received no later than close of business Friday October 7, 2022. If you have any questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a note in the HOA office mailbox and a Board member will contact you.
Basement: Basement will be open on Saturday, September 10 between 11:30am and 11:45am.
Plumbing: Only bodily waste and toilet tissue should be flushed down the toilets. All other items including wipes do not belong down the toilet. “Flushable” wipes and grease cause a lot of damage to our plumbing. If you clog the lines, you will be charged for repairs.
Homeowner’s Insurance: Your homeowner’s insurance should be updated regularly. Be sure you have “betterment and improvement coverage” if you have changed or upgraded anything from the original builder’s materials.
• PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ATTIC STORAGE IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
• Dogs MUST be ALWAYS leashed and are not to be walked on our paths or lawns. They may only be walked in the streets and must be cleaned up after.
• All work requires written board approval. Please submit a work order and wait for a response.
• There is no feeding of animals outside. Please don’t throw out nuts, seeds, or bread. It attracts rodents.
• Please make sure to put garbage inside the dumpsters and to close the top when you are done. The dumpsters won’t fill up as quickly if you break down your cardboard. Please be courteous.
