May Meeting Highlights –
- The June meeting was a GoTo Meeting, with a couple of Owners on-line.
- There was one owner delinquent with their May assessment. The Board took action consistent with the Collection Policy.
- Homeowners Insurance – It was reported that 100% of the unit owners have provided certificates of insurance. Having to make sure everyone did this was a lengthy process. Thank you all!
- The Covid-19 Emergency Rules were reviewed and updated. As a result, the dumpsters are being put away now, hoping the staff remains in good health. It was suggested only one family at a time be in an elevator. Comments from Owners were considered. Because some Owners are absent due to the travel restrictions, the staff was asked to do “Vacation Checks” upon request.
- The Board considered an expenditure to install 20 new eyebolts, required for window washer’s safety, for $11,970. Consideration was tabled so more comparison bids could be sought. Window washers are to be notified that window washing cannot be done until the eyebolts have been installed.
- Outdoor Grilling – The Directors considered the problem with some residents experiencing nuisance smoke from BBQ grilling and safety. They want to explore having our own grilling area next to the building. They wanted to warn residents contemplating purchasing a grill that they may be not permitted in the future.
- The Board looked at a unit with some drywall removed to see the condition of the cast iron pipes to see if some criteria for replacement could established.
- The next meeting date is July 21st.
Good News – Because we are providing updates, problems and expenditures, we aren’t letting everyone know about what is good news. Here are a few things to share:
- The new agreement with CSS DirecTV will save the Association about $700 a month compared to our old agreement. The increased internet speeds will allow for residents to have more devices connected concurrently and better addresses future connectivity needs. Plus, you will have HBO and Cinemax included in the bulk TV package. This provides you with substantial savings compared to having individual agreements with the providers.
- Cooling and Heating – The new cooling tower was put to the test during last weeks heat spell…and everyone had sufficient cooling. A lot of money was spent to upgrade the system but you now have the best system at Coronado Shores.
- Water – Pipe Trades found a way to change a drain connection on the cooling tower, so we are saving about 500 gallons a day. That is going to reduce our water bill and is environmentally brilliant.
- Security Cameras - The Security Cameras in the elevators were finally connected after almost three years of overcoming problems including replacing axial traveling cables with an HD connection. So, be warned, no necking in the elevators, because now there is no expectation of privacy.
The Annual meeting will be an on-line meeting due to the Covid-19 restrictions.
Coronavirus Impact Update – There are no new cases to date.
