Attached to the report for Board Member review, are the proposed minutes from the Board of Directors Meeting held on Monday April 24, 2017, as submitted by Timothy Patricio, Property Manager.
A sample motion to approve the minutes for April 24th: “I move the Board of Directors approves the minutes from the Board Meeting held on Monday April 24, 2017.”
Attached to the meeting report for Board review are spec sheets for a replacement of the party room portable bar, as recommended by the Home Improvement Committee. At the Committee’s meeting on April 13th, they have proposed the Board replace the current bar with two black “Carlisle 755003 56inch Plastic Maximizer Portable Bars”.
Management found these available online from a number of vendors ranging in cost from $1600-$2000 apiece plus tax and shipping. Should the Board approve purchase, we will order from the most reasonably priced source, and should be able to do so within a budget of $4000.
A sample motion to approve this purchase: “I move the Board of Directors approves the purchase of two black Carlisle 755003 56inch Plastic Maximizer Portable Bars, as proposed by the Home Improvement Commission at a cost not to exceed $4000.”
Attached to the meeting report for Board review is a request from a Unit Owner for authorization to keep a Service Animal in the unit, as well as a written opinion in response from the Association’s legal counsel. In light of the documentation provide, management suggests the Board deny the request.
A sample motion to act on this matter: “I move the Board of Directors denies a Unit Owner’s request for a service animal.”
In conjunction with the budgeted and Board approved Security System Overhaul project, every camera currently present is being replaced, and we included a provision to add cameras in a handful of locations.
Following approval of the project at the April 10th Board Meeting, Management walked through with the project manager and lead technician on the project, conducting a thorough inspection of each location, considering every angle and coverage, as well as the types of cameras and capabilities that best fit the locations. As a part of this process, we determined where new cameras could be effective, and improve security and protection of the building, ownership and Association belongings.
2 Cameras – 1P and 2P Garage South Stair
1 Camera – 1P at Intersection Past Office
1 Camera Facing Into Laundry Room
2 Cameras – at Midway Intersection Facing South and West and North and East
1 Camera – at Security Office
3 Cameras – Cardio Room, Weight Room and Entry Corridor
1 Camera – in the Back Office Observing the key box and security server
Some of these locations have been discussed at some point in the past, in various contexts, such as the health club and laundry room. Others arose as a result of our walk through, where we have penetrations of the building with limited or no coverage, such as the 1p and 2p south stair and mall intersection. Others we are proposing due to problematic situations in the past. This would include the added intersection in the garage and the health club entry corridor.
We suggest discussing this in more detail with the Board, and ask the Board to consider approving the locations agreed upon.
A sample motion to approve the additional locations: “I move the Board of Directors approves the additional security camera locations as proposed by Management, including 3 in the Garage, 1 in the laundry room, 3 in the Mall, 3 in the Health Club and 1 in the Management Office.”
Attached to the report for Board Member review are remodeling packets for the following Unit Owner construction projects:
410 – Bathroom Remodel
2110 – Kitchen Remodel
2702 – Kitchen and Bath Remodel
4802 – Kitchen Remodel
A sample motion follows: “I move the Board of Directors approves the remodeling plans of units 410, 2110, 2702 and 4802, as submitted by the unit owner, following the recommendations of the chief engineer as outlined in their written specifications and in accordance with the Rules and Regulations and remodeling guidelines of the Park Tower Condo Association.”
