Budget Bits - June
Posted on Jun 14th, 2018
by  Mike Bossio, Treasurer

This report is essentially the same as the previous Budget Bits in that all income and expenses, and the Reserve Fund savings are as planned. I know this is a bit of a bore but perhaps that is a good thing. No surprises, especially no bad surprises. The Operating Budget continues to be strong with a balance of $140,751 and a Reserve Fund total of $702,723. The RF total is the result of the planned deposit of $14,829 and accrued interest of $1600. That’s it for now. I will continue to keep you apprised of our performance on a monthly basis.

Concrete Rust Removal
Posted on Jun 6th, 2018
by  Mike Bossio, Treasurer
In the May 15 Annual Meeting I told the homeowners that rust removal would start on May 21 and urged everyone to open their side spigots so that water would be available to the contractor. Although rust removal efforts did start the third week in May the contractor quickly ran into weather trouble---rain and high temperatures. High temperatures are not conducive to rust removal because the chemicals applied to the concrete flash off too quickly and retard the chemical reaction necessary for completely removing the rust. The last week of May had temperatures in the high 80s and low 90s and prevented the work from continuing until more suitable temperatures existed.
Board Bits - June
Posted on Jun 1st, 2018
by Norm Schmidt, Secretary
Spring is finally here. Trees are out and birds are nesting. We are still getting enough rain and do not need irrigation turned on yet.
It is time for Co-owners to take a walk around and check your condo. Recently some Co-owners have noticed that the exterior vents are falling apart and birds are finding ways to build a nest inside those vents. Some vents draw air in to operate the furnace and unwelcome smells may result.
Co-owners are responsible for the maintenance of the vents per the Bylaws Article V Section 4a. It is recommended that you find a company to replace the vents. The vents should have a screen to stop intrusion.

Burst Exterior Hose Faucet
By Marie Walkowski, Paul Kelly on May 9, 2018
We had a burst exterior hose faucet that caused damage inside the building. If there is a way to alert other owners to be careful when one turns on the water to their hoses. It appears that some water may have been trapped in the faucet and when it froze during the cold winter, it expanded and burst the faucet casing in the wall. The add on backflow preventers that may have been installed also prevent the trapped water in the faucet from draining.When the faucet is turned on water squirts out between the faucet and the wall and also leaks down between the interior drywall and exterior wall. So be careful and immediately shut off the faucet and get the sill faucet / hose faucet replaced before using it again. the Woodford Faucet website shows how the faucet is built and you can see what most likely happened.
