Board Treasurer Jean Shamo called the meeting to order and opened the meeting explaining this was the third of the three expected budget review meetings. She thanked Lloyd Allison from the Budget & Finance Commission for again attending to help the Board go through the proposed budget.
Review of Proposed Budget
Board Treasurer Jean Shamo explained the goal of the meeting was to follow up on past meeting questions, review the revenue budget, reserve and planned capital projects. Discussion began category by category through each page.
Discussion and Questions
Questions and concerns were discussed as needed with members and management. Each member was given the opportunity to raise points or questions for discussion of any budget line item. Management took notes for any editing, gathering information and direction for follow up.
It was noted the garage license fee would need to be added for $6900. The bike room fee for the upper rack would be lowered to $48 per year. Management was directed to discuss a building wide composting program with Block Bins, for potentially adding to the budget. It was the unanimous consensus to adjust the proposed budget to a 4.5% increase. Any bottom line change should result in an adjustment to the reserve contribution.
After a motion by Jean Shamo, seconded by Sheldon Atovsky the Board of Directors of the Park Tower Condo Association voted unanimously in favor of proposing a 4.5% assessment increase with the proposed budget for the 2023/2024 fiscal year.
Board Member Resignation

On behalf of the Board, Michael Parrie thanked Jean for her 7½ years of service, and welcomed Lloyd who agreed to complete the term.
