Annual Audit - Charles Krblich CPA firm has been engaged for the annual audit. The 2017 financial audit fieldwork is complete, and we have received a draft of the financial statements. The annual report will be finalized and delivered to the Board of Directors and the Unit Owners by the end March. You will be notified when you can pick up a copy of the financial statements in the office. In April, the Charles Krblich CPA will complete and file the tax return.

Banking Services - Our relationship with the Association Services at CenterState Bank has been set up and operating since June 2017. Q2 Maintenance Fees are due April 1, 2018. There are several options for the payment of maintenance fees; however, all maintenance fees should be mailed directly to the bank lockbox in Miami. If possible, use coupons to accompany your payment, this speeds up the processing of your payment.

You also have the option of auto-debit; currently 43 owners use this option for payment of the quarterly fees. See Christine in the office if you would like to use auto-debit.

Concierge Plus software, Amenity Bookings, Maintenance Requests, Package Delivery, Mailroom Monitor, TMS Biometric Clock, Receiving Room, Security Uniforms, Front Entrance Seating, Exercise Equipment, Landscaping, Beach Chairs, Cabanas, Hurricane Irma, LED Garage Lighting, and additional projects.

Eric Berkowitz - After having served for more than 17 years on Regency Tower's Board of Directors, Eric opted not to stand for re-election. Eileen Bendis shared the following. "From the roof to the drainage wells, from the A/C risers to the concrete balconies, from the website to the impact windows, from the generator to the cooling tower, Eric has always been there. No one has ever and I dare say so, no one WILL ever put as much volunteer time and effort into the future of Regency Tower. If anyone thinks anything other than his health has taken him off the Board of Directors, THEY DON'T KNOW ERIC!

He will still be here to negotiate and supervise projects like no one can. But, his health and his family must come first at this point in his life.

Please stand and give a heartfelt thank you for so many years of volunteer service to our community and that of the entire Galt Ocean Mile Association and wish him the best."
