Open Owners Session:
Jim B. Bldg. 102 – Slipped and fell during a snowstorm he understands that we are under staffed and
since his fall he has been out for 3 days. He spoke w/Jewell. He feels that the stairs and the snow
removal have been overlooked and it needs to be improved. He also does not like to see the cigarette
butts all over the place and reports that there has been someone smoking in his hallway. We encouraged
him to write letters informing us of the person/persons who are breaking the laws so that we can enforce
and fine. Told him that if we do not see it we do not know it is happening or who is doing it. We need
the other owners to help us enforce our bylaws. We can only fine what we know about.
Working on the parking situation, we need to make a plan and then sell it to the owners. It takes 67% of
all unit owners (180ppl) to change the declaration. We repaved the semi-circle, as it would have been a
very big liability this winter. 3 Bulkheads have been completed this year. 2 hallways have been
repainted w/our new color scheme.
What about putting weather stripping on the main and inside doors to keep the noise down when the
doors shut behind you.
4am garbage pick up is not acceptable needs to be later.
We stated that we need more proactive owners.
