ELECTION OF A MEMBER TO BE ON THE BOARD:
Comments Made:What is the projected time of turnover to the homeowners and how many have been sold? Everyone was updated about the cable situation. The water bill was explained to everyone and why the bill went to a fixed rate for everyone. The gate issue was discussed and everyone was told that we were having warranty problems and that’s why it has not been fixed.
Someone suggested we need more security around the pool area. Maybe pool tags could be given to the owners or renters to wear while at the pool. The pool should be locked at all times to protect the Association.
Ross Pritchett explained the rules for the pool deck area and that glass on the pool deck or while you’re in the pool is a violation of Florida Statutes and could result in the pool being closed by the Health Department. There was and inquiry about the time the gates open and close. Response made was that the gates open at 5:30 am and close at 5:30 pm. There was a comment made on the clutter that many of the units have on their front entryways.
The letter process for violations should be modified. Tom Webber who is the courtesy officer of Nautilus Cove explained to everyone what he was hired to do and if there is a problem on the premises, they should call him. An owner asked how many time the garbage cans and the pet stations were emptied a week. Also the landscapers need to be contacted about the preserved islands because they need some cleaning up.
There was a question about units being used as a dormitory. “Is Pelican Real Estate paying rent?” was asked. Ross Pritchett discussed possibly getting a fountain installed in the retention pond to help with mosquitoes and to help the appearance of that pond. Someone asked what the process for renters to live here was and if the owners were doing background checks on these people. It is the owners’ responsibility to check who they are renting to.
Tom Webber also commented about the kids being left unsupervised.
Someone asked, “what was the purpose of the black panels on the sides of the buildings”? We discussed plumbing problems in a unit. There were a few questions and comments made about the budget. Why was the insurance so much less than last year? Explain the taxes and licenses in the budget.
Someone asked about the management fee and how it was figured.
