BOARD OF DIRECTORS BUDGET MEETING
NOVEMBER 11, 2013
Bob Cory called the meeting to order at 10:00am.
Barbara Cooledge and Marilyn Jones were present representing a quorum.
Karen Hopkins was also present representing Preferred Management Services.
The minutes of the October 10, 2013 Board meeting were approved.
Barbara Cooledge made a motion to accept the proposed 2014 budget as it was mailed to all owners. Marilyn Jones seconded the motion and the budget was approved unanimously.
After previous attempts to repair a leak caused by a crack in an outside wall,
The Board approved the expense to erect a scaffold behind building 2 in order to access the wall on the 6th floor that is causing the water intrusion. The Board received 2 proposals for the job. The proposals were $6,200 and $3,000. The Board accepted the $3,000 proposal from Complete Construction. They will also be repairing the crack and painting the affected area. Karen will look to our insurance policies to see if this would be a covered loss.
After the Board had a chance to look at a sample of a new pool fence, they approved the expenditure of $24,500 to have our pool fence replaced. The new fence will follow current pool fence codes on spacing of the rails which will allow us to do away with the unattractive wire fencing that has been there. Dave Luenzmann will supervise this project.
The concrete work in front of building 2 has been completed.
The new rack for our pool heaters was installed. We are now waiting for a proposal from Symbiont, the pool heater company, to replace the thermostat on the heaters. The heaters are not presently running because of the malfunctioning thermostat.
We have made several attempts at pressure cleaning the pavers in front of building 2 and have not been successful at removing the stains from the area on the south side of the circle adjacent to the driveway. We will continue to try various methods for stain removal before looking at the expense of replacing the affected pavers.
There being no further business to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 11:15am.
