MARCH 20, 2014
ANNUAL BOARD MEETING &
Quorum - Absent a quorum, the rules that ordinarily govern meeting protocols do not apply. In lieu of Meeting Minutes, the Secretaryís Meeting Notes record the event. Since there were 3 candidates and 3 open seats from Board members whose terms of office terminated at the Annual Meeting, an election was precluded by Statute. As such, Gene Sicoli, Abe Ben-Aviv and Eric Berkowitz were returned to office. The following Meeting Notes reflect the outcome of the organizational meeting.
Open Discussion -Given the lack of a quorum, attending members held an informal discussion. Beautification Committee Chair Margie Nagle was complimented for the new exterior seating area adjacent to the building entrance and the holiday season decorations.
Reading of Minutes -Notes from last yearís Annual Members meeting of March 20,2013 were read by the Secretary, Joan Sapik.
Abe Ben-Aviv, Richard Robins and Gene Sicoli will continue to be Directors of the Board.
President's Report -President Eileen Bendis then read her Presidentís Report. Click Here to read the Presidentís Report.
Adjournment -The meeting was adjourned at 7:10 P.M.

I want to thank every one for their patience during our elevator repair. However, we are lucky to have 3 elevators and a little longer wait was not totally inconvenient. My, my, I even heard people complaining they had to wait 3 minutes! (who times this stuff anyway?)
Thereís another subject I would like to touch on. If you are leasing out your unit, please know that there are forms that must be filled out. Leasing is only allowed once a year and the lease must state 185 days whether or not the lessee stays that long. Background checks are mandatory and if we find out you havenít done this your renter will be asked to leave. We all want to know who is living next door to us. We are trying to maintain a non-transient and single-family oriented atmosphere with the residents living in a compatible coexistence with other financially responsible persons who are of like mind and character. This includes any guests staying over 30 days.
I am sure many of you have noticed all the concrete restoration and painting going on up and down the Galt Ocean Mile. Donít think we are invincible! In order for the board to do its due diligence we have contracted our structural engineer to do a spot check on units on the east side of the building that are more abused from the ocean and storms. Even though we are not scheduled for painting for another 2 or 3 years we donít want to wait and have any surprises. We will let you know the results of their findings in order for us to make an educated decision; hopefully, later not sooner. But keep in mind it is inevitable that some structural repairs will be required.
One last thing. I am once again implementing a ďsuggestion box.Ē It will probably be put in the mail room, and will be for suggestions, ideas, or compliments. You must sign and complete a form with your unit number on it.
Thank you once again for all your support this year. It is so nice to be living in an atmosphere of friendliness and consideration for one another and hopefully, this will continue.
