Garage pole lights replacement of one burnt out bulb and two other fluorescent bulbs with LED lamps will be done soon - waiting for availability of lift [and weather].

Got 5 year report on elevators from Otis. They have only been out 4 times in 5 years to address reported issues – all but one were electrical problems that have been fixed. One was caused by move in/out blocking the door open too long so they had to reset the door switch. Bottom line is that the elevators are doing great and we have been saving money!

Owners Forum:

Jesse clarified that the plumbing plans mentioned earlier were for the Ad Hoc committee and not the MMRC.
