  2. Ray will pick up rat preventive screens to cover the stack for anyone in need of them.



  1. New Fines Procedure: As of July 1, 2015, the law has changed. All fines must have prior approval by the Board before issued. Many changes including no time restriction on follow up fines until paid, and after 90 days, common area privileges can be removed. A copy of the actual law has been given to each director and is attached to the file copy of minutes.
  2. Violations Fine: We have our first fine under the new law. The Directors have had time to read the entire file for a unit violating the Cluster parking policy by having five vehicles, plus two other violations. A motion to approve the letter exactly as presented by the president was requested. Patrick Lambert made the motion and Gino Graziose seconded the motion. Eight (8) voted to approve and one abstained (Barbara Gehrkin). Motion passed.
  3. Maintenance Man Job Description: All directors have received the updated job description discussed with and signed by our maintenance man. The biggest change is that our insurance now covers him going on the second floor during duty hours without extra pay. Please read closely and insure compliance, especially with the time schedule.
