Social Committee Chair Sheldon Atovsky reviewed recent business including a proposed budget presented to Management, the success of the TGIF retirement party for Sue and Jim in the Cleaners, and planned upcoming activities and events. This includes the launch of the ‘People to People’ initiative on October 9th at 6:30pm, and the next meeting of the Committee on October 17th at 6:15pm.
Board President Michael Parrie discussed business from the most recent Ad Hoc Cable/Internet Committee Meeting. The taskforce is refining the RFQ for potential bidders. As a part of the process, the committee requested the Board provide direction whether there is an interest in a potential bidder – COMCAST – installing “home run” cable, which would be installed in the hallways and units with a cover molding. Home run cable would be individual lines serving single units and it would be very visible in the hallways. The Board discussed and reached a consensus that while there is not an appetite to have visible wiring or moldings in the hallway, they want to see their proposal and be able to determine whether the cost might warrant such an alteration.
