the Board Meeting of the
Banana Bay Condominium
to Order: The meeting started at 10:06 am in the Banana Bay Clubhouse.
Notices were posted on all bulletin boards 48 hours in advance. Seven owners
members present: President Barbara Peterson, VP Clyde Hoover and Treasurer
April Scott. Secretary Carol Langmesser and Director Jim Miller were unable
to attend. Michelle Davis from Reconcilable Differences was also in attendance.
of the last meeting: Clyde motioned to approve the minutes of September
21, 2016 as written and posted on the website. Barb seconded, all in favor.
discussion and agreement that details are needed for contractors, April
motioned to approve and start using this form, with the ability to revise
it as needed. Clyde seconded, all in favor.
Consultant Contract: The elevator, especially in the 2400 building,
needs some repairs that Kone cannot do. The concrete is spalling and that
has shifted the door so it sticks. You currently have to go up to the 2nd
floor to get on the elevator, since it is out of kilter on the first floor.
There was also a vibration issue that required oil to be added. The technician
does come and adjust it each time we call, but we need to fix the problem.
Malcolm Daigle, who consulted on the modernization of those elevators in
2002, seems to be the only elevator consultant that other condos are currently
using. We have asked for a bid to evaluate, write specifications for the
repairs, obtain bids, oversee the chosen contractor and then help us finally
obtain our permits for 2017. More will be discussed when the bid is received.
Rules for Contractors working on-site for Individual owners and Residents:Due
to some owner contractors not following noise rules and being unprofessional,
the need for clarification was needed. Barb obtained a form from another
condo that went into the following details:
Permit from City of Cocoa Beach is Required
License and business information must be received
up and repayment for repair of damages to common areas (landscaping, sidewalks,
exterior of buildings, etc.)
day for work
week that work is allowed.
of construction dumpsters
Comments: Ruth Fell said her fence is looking gray and needs to be
cleaned. She also needs sod. Barb noted that sod has been ordered and should
hopefully be installed soon. She also said that maybe we can hire some
part time maintenance men to do the pressure washing.
Contract for Townhomes as an Association Cost: Barb confirmed the details
with Gutter King. Adding one gutter over the 2nd floor sliding glass door,
with 2 downspouts on either side. For an additional $488, the downspouts
will be brought out to the common areas and pour into the common area and
away from the buildings, to keep all water away from the buildings. He
will also add concrete splash guards. The cost is $20,120 for 6 inch commercial
gutters on all 88 units. All will be replaced if not up to these standards.
Clyde motioned to approve this contract “as written”, with the stipulation
that the color match the building. Barb seconded, all in favor. Gutters
will be added to the reserves for future savings.
Contract: Joseph Stevens gave a very fair price to make all the
ceiling repairs and then paint the ceiling, walls and all doors of the
clubhouse. They also gave a price to paint all walkway floors of the midrises.
While the Board approved all contracts at the last meeting, we thought
they would start with the midrises. Due to rain, they have completed 90%
of the clubhouse work. They even moved all the bookcases, painted behind
them, and put the bookcases back. They should start the midrise walkway
floors as soon as the rain stops. We do not have their cost on pool decks
yet, but we probably need specifications, similar to the bid from Anchor
Vote Update: To date, we have received 94 yes votes. Therefore, the
vote is already approved, but we will continue to accept votes until the
Matthew is expected to hit tonight, so pool furniture is being move in,
propane is being stocked, and owners were promised that if any damage happens
to roofs, Barbara will get a roofer out as soon as possible.
felt that allowing people to dry their laundry on the 2nd floor balcony
is an eyesore, but there was discussion and everyone felt that allowing
drying on a separate drying should be allowed, since being “green” is important.
It was reiterated that NOTHING is allowed to be hung over the railings.
being no more business to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 10:55 am.
