Scott Simmons reviewed the financial reports for the association. Scott commented that the association is in good financial shape. Exhibit B
General Manager’s Report:
Scott Simmons gave the General Manager’s report with items of interest being the OGPOA Agreement for utilities responsibility. Many of the roof support poles have rotted at the bottom and are being repaired. Several stair stringers have been repaired. Special Teams did a concrete repair at 21/25. Scott is working on a schedule for cleaning and painting of the garages. Unit 3-4 had an A/C failure due to an old/bad electrical line from the outside unit to the inside condo panel box. OGPOA is close to signing an agreement with Comcast for Bulk internet services. Exhibit C. Jack Osgard would like to survey Las Palmas to see who wants a landline. After discussion, the landline is part of the Comcast bundle and cannot be deleted from the contract. Also, the survey has a glitch that lets you vote more than once.
Ray Ryan noted that $125,000 was spent to paint VLP. New and current bids are at $250,000 for an outside contractor. Ray said that the savings are incredible with the use of Special Teams and the board is very grateful. Mr. Rosenbloom appreciates the administrative work that is provided to schedule meetings, getting out notices and emails, etc. Ray thinks the buildings are in better shape than ever before.
