ELEVATOR CONTRACT – THYSSEN KRUPP:
We have retained the services of Michael Chiumento III, who specializes in contract law, to review our Thyssen-Krupp contract and determine what steps need to be taken going forward. All pertinent materials have been given to him and we expect to have more details available shortly.
The GAP program that we signed onto in January of 2012 has not worked out to our satisfaction. Monies that we expected to collect through this program have not materialized since the fees, interest, administration and attorney charges, all under the GAP program, have substantially reduced the amount of money we expected to receive. Since we feel that this program was misrepresented, we have decided to have this contract reviewed by Michael Chiumento.
Based on our experience with the GAP program, the Board has decided that any future contracts shall be reviewed by an attorney.
Several owners in Building II mentioned that the service elevator was not working, following the recent rain storm. Karen will have this elevator checked and any repair needed will be attended to.
There was a question from another owner about the rental policy and had it recently changed. Karen assured this owner that no change has occurred in our rental policy; it is still one rental per year.
A question was raised on the feasibility of adding realtors to our website. After some discussion, the Board decided to leave the website as is, without adding realtors.
There being no further business to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 2:00 pm.
Jeanne Kiley, Secretary
