A. Painting and Restoration Contract Status – Juanita reports that the painters are doing final punch list items. She states that we will be using some 2016 building repairs and contingency funds so that there will be no assessment for painting project. Munyan will paint doors for $65 each for those interested. The paperwork is in the office.

B. Security Proposals – Glenn Keller is looking in to the possibility of surveillance cameras. There are currently 3 dummy cameras. Sue Apostolico spoke to a representative from the police department who suggested night vision cameras. The cost of 6-8 wireless cameras with high resolution including DVR is approximately $1,200 – $1,300. Jim Apostolico made a motion to approve up to $1500 for security system, Second by Art Boyle and all in favor.

C. Termite Inspection – Apartment 104 has termites in the kitchen cabinets which are being removed and replaced. The inspection of all apartments for termites is being postpones until summer because it would be impossible to detect with everyone here since they are most likely cleaning any visual evidence.

D. Access 12 Status – No upgrades to the counties amenities will be approved until they satisfy the issue of LaPalmas easement.

E. Kevin’s status – Home Depot is changing some of the schedules and this may affect Kevin’s schedule. We will have a better idea in February whether he will continue to work the same schedule.


A. Proposed PB Underground Utilities & Assessment Method – Jim and Marian went to a

meeting regarding underground wiring. Condominium reps from Sloans Curve South are against and gave the reasons why, mentioning that hurricanes could cause flooding and underground wiring could take 3 or more weeks to get to. The also stated that it would be very costly to fix problems. It is on the ballot, and if passed the payment, which is a tax, method is included. They determine the need by aesthetics, safety and reliability. Residents North of Sloans curve will see much more benefit.

B. Laundry Room Proposed Procedure – Motion made by Stacey Graiziger to approve the following written procedure, second by Jim Apostolico and approved by all.

1. All monies collected from the laundry machines will be credited to a specific reserve account and the revenue will be reported on a separate line item in the income statement. Once the balance in the reserve account equals the replacement cost of new machines, the board can approve the expenditure of the surplus funds for any purpose it deems appropriate.

2. A log book will be kept recording all monies taken from the machines. Monies should be taken out on a regular schedule at least once per month in the presence of two people who should initial the log book and together take the coins to the bank for deposit. *The Board will approve persons authorized to collect and deposit the money. Building manager (Marcy

Cresswell) along with Elaine Bartholomew and four Directors, Juanita, Marian, Jim and Glenn will be authorized to count money. Motion to approve authorized people made by Jim Apostolico, second by Stacey Graiziger and approved by all.

3. The key to the coin collectors on the laundry machines will be kept under lock in the custody of the manager of Palm Worth.
