ELEVATOR CONTRACT – THYSSEN KRUPP:
Discussion of where we are in our negotiations with this company and the steps we need to take to reach an acceptable agreement, was reviewed and approved by the Board. The results will be forwarded to our attorney for further handling.
WASTE MANAGEMENT CONTRACT:
The Board approved a one year extension of our contract with Waste Management that will expire on December 31, 2013. We are considering going with Waste Pro in 2014 due to possible better pricing.
BRIGHT HOUSE CABLE TELEVISION:
The Board approved disconnecting the cable accessibility for three of our owners, due to non-payment of maintenance fees. Karen will notify them that their cable TV will be disconnected.
POOL FENCE REPLACEMENT:
Karen has received several comments on the condition and appearance of the existing
pool fence. The Board asked Karen to check out what the replacement costs might be and how it would impact our budget.
Key-less Access Locks.Com – Due to Karen’s efforts, a price reduction for elevator key pads was realized by using this new supplier.
Kings Three – This is the company that responds to our elevator emergency calls. A proposed 3% increase was avoided due to Karen’s efforts.
On January 29, 2013, Building II’s water had to be shut off in order to replace a domestic back flow preventor. Master Craft had submitted a cost estimate of $5,600 to do the work but, through Karen’s checking, the job was completed by the Dunes Development Company at a cost of $3,010; a savings of $2,590.
There being no further business to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 2:15 pm.
