Financial Review

Our usual CPA who does our taxes submitted a bid for our financial review of $2000. Diane is awaiting a second bid from another CPA.

What we get for the money: Financial Review document package that meets Oregon State Condo Law requirements.

NOTE: This does NOT include a review of the Reserves.


Jesse has noticed a smell in our lobby area that is not due to the hairtreatment odors from Mia Bella. This prompted a discussion on getting fans to expel the odors OUT of the building for the salon space.

It was also suggested that we create a list of projects that owner-workparties can do to beautify our home.

Garage Construction update:

Demolition completed early and with much less noise than anticipated.

It’s still unknown if there is a cost savings from the early completion or not.

The currently visible layer is the old vapor barrier of tar-felt-tar-felt-tar. The vapor barrier to be laid over this existing protection will be applied as two additional tar coats on May 29th and then May 31st.

The barrier must dry for 48 hours before anything else can be done.

Concrete work can begin June 3 with the construction and placing of forms and rebar. This will take about a week. [5 work days]

The following Monday [June 10 ], the wear layer cement pour will begin and will continue for 4-5 days [June 14 ]. Because of excess heat from direct sunlight being a concern, the pour[s] will be done on a schedule of 3PM - 7PM each day.

The cement must then “cure” for 21 days before vehicle traffic is allowed. The repainting and installation of new bumper guards can begin July 5.

Opening of the garage is still estimated as July 22nd.

Roof Safety Upgrade:

The latest iteration of plans to create a safe environment for our roof [for worker access] will cost substantially less than the previous versions of the plan.

We should have a better idea of costs by next Monday.

Construction work would be completed this July and August is when we can FINALLY get our windows washed.

If you’re interested in the design, please see Tom for explanation. Bottom line is that it will meet all the new OSHA requirements for worker-safety.

Additional Garage:

Tom discovered moderate deterioration of the ramps going up and coming down from the upper deck of the garage. We may decide to have them resurfaced while the garage is curing as the type of cement used for the ramps cures in a few days rather than weeks.

Tom will check with the Engineer in charge of the garage construction and update the MMRC who will then make recommendations to the Board.
