MEETING OF THE
VILLAGE SQUARE OF TITUSVILLE CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATION, INC.

Approximately 6 residents were in attendance.

Meetings: Dennis motioned to approve the minutes of the November 8,
2012 Board meeting and the minutes of the Organizational Meeting held on
January 30, 2013, as written and posted on the website. Brenda seconded,
all in favor.
Discussion on Painting Bids:
Michelle noted that Dennis spent a great deal of time going over these
bids and she appreciated his time and expertise. At this time, the two
lowest bids are from Anchor Painting & DAB Painting, but they are not
“apples to apples”, because one was asked to quote another “half” building
also. After discussion, it was agreed that final prices will be obtained
from those two companies for painting building #1695, and the two half
buildings, #1785 & #1795, since they have a lot of brick façade
Discussion on Security Bids:
Manager stated that these bids were all over the place. All three companies
bid what they THOUGHT we needed instead of what we asked for, so prices
ranged from $6,900 for cameras only at clubhouse and entrance, to over
$18,565 for cameras throughout, which would be monitored so that a voice
could tell people to leave the area, or call the police if they were needed.
Discussion ensued. There has been no more trouble since the one break-in
and majority opinion was to drop this issue for now.
Owner Input: A resident asked about the foil in the window, window screens that need replacement, and speeding issues with one unit. It was noted that 3 letters have gone to this unit owner and the foil is promised to be removed by the end of this month.
A resident asked if they could just remove the window screens and not replace them. The Board agreed after this meeting, that the “look” of the Association is not lowered by just removing the screens and not replacing them. Anyone who does not open their windows and therefore does not need the screens is allowed to just remove them, but all were cautioned to keep the frames in case they are needed one day.
It was noted that 40 letters went out to owners about their screens and/or screen enclosures needing repair or replacement. Some have already taken care of it. Michelle was asked to mail letters to those in Building #1695 to hold off on replacing their screens until AFTER the painting is completed.
Set Next Meeting: Betty noted
that we will schedule the next meeting after the new painting bids are
