Discussion to do same to Building #14. $640 Quotation from Holdridge Nursery was acceptable to the Board. Motion to proceed: Ray Woolrich; 2nd. Bob Woolf. Motion passed. Radon testing discussed: A unit owner requested that the Association pay to mitigate potential radon levels of 4.5 pC/L found in their unit, prior to sale. After researching the issue, seeking advice of counsel and discussing with unit owners present, the Board determined that radon mitigation is an individual unit owner’s responsibility. There are two tests for radon: short term collection of emissions and long term collection of emissions. Results from both tests can vary statistically significantly, depending on the test manufacturer and the rigor with which procedures are followed. Multiple tests are recommended to confirm results. Testing is to be conducted inside the lowest occupied level in a unit. The CT state average reading is 3.8pC/L. Additional
radon information can be found on the web at:

Unit # 6 repairs: This unit is now owned by the Association following owner default on Association dues. It was significantly damaged by the previous unit owner before she left and must be restored to livable condition prior to sale or rental. Title insurance is difficult for new buyers to obtain in today’s economic climate, so the unit may have to be rented for a period until markets return to normal, to prevent it from becoming a drain on Association finances. Walls must be restored and painted, the unit must be cleaned, fixtures must be restored and doors put back-up. Carpeting is significantly damaged: The Board is to review whether the carpet can be at least partially restored by a professional cleaning agency, and will then decide on the advisability of complete or partial (e.g., main floor only) replacement. 2nd pool entrance gate needs a new lock. Keys are to be provided to Bailey’s Pool service, the pool house cleaner, the Pool Manager and the Board. NPG action item. The bilco door at the pool house needs back filling with gravel or dirt to arrest erosion; and a new lock. NPG action item. The grounds crew is damaging Association property and utility property. NPG action item to review with Kurt, to 1: Stop it, and 2: pay for repairs. Bldg. #15: Paint on the trim is peeling on the backside of the building. NPG action item. A new Pool Rules sign is still needed for the main entry gate. Rules should be as before and include (but not limited to): NO life guard on duty Swim at your own risk.
