Condominium VIII – Board of Managers

Condo VIII – February 2023 

Lint accumulation in dryer vents is a fire hazard; submit a work order to schedule your free annual dryer vent cleaning appointment.

In the event of snowfall under two inches, or if you need to get out before the snow removal team arrives, residents are encouraged to keep a snow shovel and concrete-safe ice melt on-hand.

For snowfall over two inches:
1. When the snow has stopped, the plows will make a pass through the parking plazas.
2. A blast call will be sent to all residents to move your cars from the parking plaza to the street so the entire lot can be plowed. It is your responsibility to shovel out your car or arrange for someone to shovel out your car and move it to the street so the plows can return to clean the lot.
3. Once the lots are plowed completely, you can move your cars back into the parking plaza.
4. Remove your doormat prior to snowfall so it doesn’t get caught in the snowblower.
5. The sidewalks will not be shoveled until the snow has stopped.

All vehicles in Condo 8 Parking Plazas must have a current registration and plates; this includes the long-term parking area. Vehicles not in compliance are subject to towing at the owner’s expense. If you will not be moving your car for seven consecutive days, put it in the long-term parking by the mailboxes in PP17A to free up spaces for other residents. Spaces are limited, so park within the lines — one space per vehicle. Parking spaces, including handicap parking spaces, are not assigned to any specific person. Call 631-852-COPS regarding vehicles parked in handicap spaces without displaying the appropriate permit.

No work will be done without the submission of a work order, unless it is an emergency. All work orders must be filled out completely with your name, unit number, and phone number in order for it to be approved. Paper-format work orders are still available at the clubhouse; however, electronic work orders expedite your request. Submit WORK ORDERS online at: https://brettonwoodshoa.org/work-orders/

Dumpsters are for household trash only. Nothing should touch or block access to the dumpster, otherwise the garbage truck will not empty it. HOA Maintenance picks up prohibited items left outside dumpsters on Monday and Friday mornings. Residents doing their own home renovations can arrange a special pick-up to remove debris by calling Maintenance at 631-698-2497. Contractors are not permitted to dispose of items in Condo 8 dumpsters; they must cart away debris from work done in your unit, including deliveries such as appliances and furniture. Contractors must be licensed and insured—contact the Board for requirements.

If you wish to access the basement without the need for an appointment, it will be open as follows:
● the 2nd Saturday of each month from 10:00am to 10:15am
● the 4th Sunday of each month from 10:00am to 10:15am.
In addition, it will be open for one hour on the 2 Saturdays after New Years Day
For basement access outside the above schedule, submit a work order or send the Board an email. Belongings stored in the basement must be clearly labeled with your name and unit number. No paint cans, tires, or other flammable objects can be stored in the basement.
