Fire System and Equipment Inspections
Beginning Monday, January 14th, through Wednesday, January 16th, from 8am—5pm, the Association’s fire system vendor, A & D, will be onsite throughout all common areas to conduct fire extinguisher and sprinkler system inspections. Please note that these inspections will not require the testing of any alarms. However, the Association will require access to all penthouse and commercial units to retrieve the fire extinguishers for testing. Please see the anticipated schedule below for further detail:
Monday, January 14th—Access required to all penthouse and commercial units to retrieve fire extinguishers.
Tuesday, January 15th, and Wednesday, January 16th—Access required to commercial units for PRV inspection and testing.
All penthouse and commercial owners will receive a courtesy call from the Front Desk Assistant to confirm an entry schedule.
Strong Weather Notice & Reminders
Due to the upcoming potentially strong weather expected tonight through Thursday, January 17th, the Association would like to provide notice and reminders to help mitigate potential issues. Please see below.
¨ Remove all items from your balcony and decks that could potentially blow off with the strong winds.
¨ If you have a lower level deck, please make sure that the drains are clear of debris.
¨ Make sure all windows and balcony doors are shut and secure. Check all window frames and balcony doors for water intrusion. If you have water intrusion present, please photograph the issue and email Management.
Please contact the front desk if you have any urgent matters to report. Otherwise, please contact the Management Office during business hours if you have any questions or concerns.
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.
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 the 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 with any questions you may have.
*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!
*BOOK CLUB—The Sapphire Book Club will be meeting in the clubroom on Tuesday, January 15th, at 12:30 p.m. to discuss January’s book selection, “Young Jane Young” by Gabrielle Zevin. Bring your snack/lunch to enjoy!
