Happy New Year – The Staff wishes you a happy, healthy and successful new year.
January Meeting – Highlights
Elevators – The elevator Modernization project was not completed last year as door components needed to be custom made. Those components should be installed beginning the last week of January. Following the door component installation, there are two other components that will require one elevator be out of service while some old parts have to be sent out for repair. For planning purposes only one elevator shall be in operation for about two weeks.
Bylaws and CC&Rs – The old bylaws and CC&Rs were revised in 2018, but they were not approved by the Members (insufficient votes). Because of California law changes this year, the revised bylaws and CC&Rs need to be changed accordingly. So, this project is underway to get the documents to the Members and in a few months have them approve the new documents via written ballot. Please participate in this process as it is expensive and necessary.
Bylaws establish policies and procedures for the governing of an association. They set qualifications for the election of directors, their number and term of office, their powers and duties, the appointment of officers, when and how meetings are held, quorum and voting requirements, appointment of committees, etc.
CC&Rs describe the rights and obligations of the membership as they relate to other members and the association as a whole, and of the association to its members. CC&Rs generally cover: (i) restrictions on the use of property, (ii) member and association maintenance duties, (iii) enforcement powers, (iv) lender protection provisions, (v) assessments obligations and lien/collection rights, (vi) duty to insure, and (vii) dispute resolution and attorneys' fees provisions.
