Lightning strike hit the building on the north east corner and the one elevator circuit was burned and concrete repair has to be done. It will be covered under our insurance.
Richard Dragone asked all the board if Mayan Towers South could have their annual meeting in our clubhouse. The board all approved.
Club House renovations was discussed and the board approved the committees request.
The Renovation Committee asked our board to approve one of the 3 Surveyors that we have chosen, and to allocate the funds to move forward with this survey that the town is requiring. Prices ranged from $2,500 – $6,500. (The board made a motion and voted unanimously to approve the $2,500 for the surveyor and move forward with this.)
The Renovation Committee asked board to vote on the requirement to move forward with the 3 builders we have interviewed and to get together a scope of work for them to begin the bidding process. Brian Macintyre, Richard Andrea, and Robert Martin. (The board made a motion and voted unanimously to approve this.)
The Renovation Committee asked the board if we can give Andrew Slacks PDF of the final C Plan for these quotes. (The board said yes. Not a formal vote taken on this question.)
The Renovation Committee asked the board to confirm that the ballot that was authorized by the board and was sent to all owners was in fact an official vote. The wishes of the owners by an overwhelming majority gave their vote in good faith believing that their opinion would count and would not be overturned by a board who is supposed be representing the owners wishes. If this is called a survey, which the owners completed in April, and was repeated yet again, it would be duplication of efforts, unnecessary money spent for new vote as well as time wasted in this renovation process. (The board would not say that this was a vote. A document from our Attorney was read. This is an email of the document that was given to us from Ann Sullivan.
