BMC report –

Actiongrams forwarded to Board. Plumbing [hot water] problems are due to maintenance taking place and will be addressed when reported.

Old business –

Giny moves to accept the proposed budget that includes a 3% HOA increase starting January 1, 2018. Clyde 2nds – Approved Unanimously. BMC will send required notification to all owners along with copy of budget.

Owners Forum –

Bill Baumball requests to see the window inspection report done for owners that was paid for by HOA for unit 701 as he has heard rumors that it states that there is a danger of the 701 windows falling out. Since his deck is directly below the windows, he doesn’t feel safe using his deck.

There will be plumbing work done that requires building water shutoff done next week.
