Assessment Update Reminder
The New Year is here and Management would like to remind all owners to make the necessary changes to reflect the new assessment amounts for 2019. In the event that you have automatic payments through Action’s ACH program, your assessment amount will automatically update for 2019. If you have automatic payments through your bank (not through Action), you will need to contact your bank to manually adjust your debited payment amount. Keep in mind, that while assessments are allocated to homeowner accounts on the 1st of each month, payments are not considered late until the close of business on the 15th of each month. Please contact Management if you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter or if you would like a copy of the 2019 Assessment Schedule.
Christmas Tree Bin—Last Week!
Management has arranged for a trash container specifically for the disposal of Christmas trees! The container is located inside the P-1 Refuse Room until Tuesday, January 8th, 2019. As a reminder, all trees must be brought down Monday—Saturday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. & 5:30 p.m., as the trees can be very messy and may require clean up. Also, please make sure that the trees are bagged or wrapped when bringing them into the common areas, as this will help eliminate excess debris and cleanup. We thank you for your cooperation with this matter!
Three (3) Minute Passenger Loading Zone
Please be reminded that the white loading zone directly in front of Sapphire is for passenger loading and unloading only, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays. The City has increased the parking enforcement officer’s surveillance throughout Downtown. Please be advised that the vehicle is considered parked if there is no one inside of the vehicle. Your car will be ticketed and may be towed if you have left your vehicle unattended in the white zone.
The Association has architectural standards and procedures for most modifications and installations that must first be approved by the Board before owners may proceed. While not all improvements require approval, Management requests that owners present potential modifications you may be considering for review to ensure all Association procedures are being followed. Even if the work is cosmetic, we request that you contact Management or the Manager’s Assistant to coordinate all work so proper notice can be distributed to your neighbors and to make sure the elevator is available for your project and contractor. We appreciate your assistance with this matter!
Important Plumbing Reminders
Plumbing in a hire-rise building is much different than the plumbing you would find in a single family home. In an effort to further educate all residents on this topic, Management has compiled a list of plumbing related reminders which will help all residents prevent back-ups and other plumbing issues. Please contact Management for a copy of the plumbing reminders.
Balcony Reminder—Water and Debris
Water and debris should never be permitted to leave any residential balcony area, as the water falls onto your neighbor’s balconies and windows below. If you clean your balcony or water your plants, be sure to removal all residual water by mopping or vacuuming. Be advised that it is a violation of the Association’s rules to allow water or debris to fall onto your neighbors below. Please contact the Management Office if you have any questions regarding this topic.
*BOARD MEETING NOTICE—The next Board meeting has been scheduled for Monday, January 28th, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. in the second floor Clubroom. All owners are encouraged to attend. We hope to see you there!
