Marilyn Jones, and David Luenzmann were present as well as Barbara Cooledge and Jeanne Kiley, via telephone, representing a quorum. Karen Hopkins was also present representing Preferred Management Services. There was one guest.
The June 14, 2013 Board Meeting Minutes of were approved.
A motion was passed to approve the expenditure of $25,616.00 to improve the operation and maintenance of our elevators.
LEGAL UPDATE ON THYSSENKRUPP:
Our attorney has advised us that this issue is still pending and that further results will not be available until mid September.
REPLACEMENT OF TILE AT THE ENTRANCE TO BUILDING I:
A proposal from James Brothers to completely remove and replace the entrance tiles in front of Building I for $6,491.00 was approved. This was necessary due to a number of the original tiles cracking.
RE-LANDSCAPING OF BUILDING II ROTARY CIRCLE:
The removal of four palms around the perimeter of the circle has been completed; sod has been planted to replace these palms and, hopefully, once it has a chance to settle in, it will provide an attractive entrance to Building II.
Several items were discussed:
Delivery trucks parked in the driveway to Building II’s upper level parking area; since appliance and furniture delivery trucks need to park in this area for access to the maintenance elevator, it is a temporary inconvenience that is unavoidable.
Temperature on pool deck floor; one of our owners remarked on the heat that comes off of the pool deck and suggested it might need a “cool deck” coating. Karen mentioned that this was done when the work around the pool was done.
Possible re-caulking of windows; Karen will discuss this with her contacts and get their recommendations.
Several palm trees behind Building I will be trimmed next week.
One of our CD’s came due and a portion of the proceeds has been reinvested in a new CD and a Money Market account.
There being no further business to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 1:56 pm.
Jeanne Kiley, Secretary
