BMC Report:

Mia Bella lease has been renewed. They are caught up on rent except for April and will be paying that off at $100/mo. as arranged.

The Satori space tenant will continue at the same reduced deferred payment rate as currently in place. Diane says that the tenant knows it is deferred and not simply a new, lower rate.

Owner’s Forum:

  • Marijuana smoke coming into Paula’s apartment again. Tom has not found the source yet.
  • Reminder to all residents:THIS IS A SMOKE-FREE BUILDING.

Old Business: none

New Business:

Elevator car airflow –

Is it fast enough to lower virus load in the car?

Will it be better to have the car return to the ground floor and open doors for more air flow?

No, the fan on the roof of each car cycles the air out of the car every 90-120 seconds [depending on which car].

The total time in the car to go from the ground floor to 13 is only ~36seconds.

More of a concern is the sanitation of the buttons and rails. Those are cleaned at least once daily by Tom or his backup with an approved sanitizing solution [Buttons on each floor are also sanitized].

Other Items

Airflow in the other shared common areas are also adequate.

Laundry room and North storage room are circulated by exhaust fan in laundry room.

Garbage rooms and hallways are served by fans on the roof.

Again, surface contamination is more of an issue in all public and shared areas.

Personal hand sanitizer use is recommended.
