The PTCA Board has appointed the Ad Hoc Committee to Review the Declaration and By-laws of the Association. The members of the Committee are Ken Anderson, Sheldon Atovsky, Larry Hamilton, Jeff Hauser, Ed Jaeger, Henry Long Ong, Bob Shamo and Oliver Tugend. Jean Shamo is the Board liaison to the Committee, and Larry Hamilton is chairing the Committee.
The mission of the Committee is to review the Association’s Declaration of Condominium and By-laws and make recommendations to the Board regarding changes to those governing documents or other appropriate steps that the Committee believes would enhance the quality of life at Park Tower or the financial well-being of the Association.
The Committee meets monthly, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm on the fourth Thursday of the month in the second floor Party Room. All meetings are open to anyone to attend, although participation in discussions by non-members is at the discretion of the chair.
The Committee’s goal is to complete its work and make its recommendations to the Board by the beginning of the summer. The Committee plans to include in its report to the Board a summary of the Committee’s findings and recommendations with respect to each proposal discussed.
Any recommendations the Board approves will then be drafted in appropriate language by the association’s attorney and voted upon by owners as proposals to amend the Declaration and/or Bylaws.
The Committee assigns each topic to a particular Committee member who then “primes the pump” by preparing a brief report for subsequent discussion. Among the topics the Committee has agreed to consider are the following:
The Committee is committed to “hearing all voices” in its study and decision-making process. Likewise, the Committee welcomes suggestions from residents regarding additional topics to consider. Suggestions may be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
