Friday Update - November 16, 2018

Management Office Closure

The Management Office will be closed on Thursday, November 22nd, through Friday, November 23rd, in observance of the Thanksgiving Day holiday. During this time, the front desk staff will be available to assist you with any immediate requests. All other inquiries will be addressed by Management starting Monday, November 26th. Please note that the weekly newsletter will not be distributed next week due to the short holiday week. Thank you and have a great holiday weekend!

Package Pickup & Disposal

As a courtesy to the front desk staff, we kindly ask that all residents please attempt to retrieve packages as they arrive. With the approaching holidays, the package room becomes extremely full, making it difficult to maneuver around to retrieve other items. Also, please be reminded to break down all boxes and dispose of them in the main refuse room located on P-1. Do not leave boxes in the trash rooms located on the residential floors or place them down the trash chute! Management and the staff appreciate your cooperation!

Garage Vacuuming

On Monday, November 19th, from 8:00am to 3:00pm, the Association’s janitorial company, P.M.S., is scheduled to vacuum the entire parking garage. The janitorial staff will start on parking level one and will work down to parking level 5. During this time, the Association would like to request that all vehicles be removed from the garage, as this work will create dust that may settle on vehicles in the area. If your vehicle is not removed, your parking space will not be vacuumed and the Association will not be responsible for dirt that may settle on your vehicle. Please see the anticipated schedule for the vacuuming of each parking level referenced below:

Kettner Traffic Complaints

As you may know, the pedestrian crossing at Kettner Blvd and A Street can be challenging and dangerous. Members requested that contact information for traffic enforcement be provided to the membership so that residents can report incidents as they occur. In researching for the best contact to provide, it was determined that complains should be made to City Council Member, Chris Ward, in order to address this issue. Residents are also instructed to contact the Traffic Division to report incidents. Please find the Traffic Division and Chris Ward’s contact information below:

Fire System—Do’s and Don’t’s

Management would like to remind all residents that the smoke detectors within your unit are not connected to the common area fire system. In the event smoke is created by a non-emergency issue, such as cooking, dust or debris, please do not open your front door and allow the smoke to enter the common area as the smoke will set off the fire alarm system to the building. Please open your interior windows and balcony door to help remove the smoke from your unit in the event of a non-emergency issue. If smoke is permitted to reach the common area smoke detectors and the alarm is triggered, the fire department will be called to investigate by the Association’s fire monitoring company. If the fire department is dispatched for a false alarm, the Association may be subjected to fines which would then be assessed to the responsible unit. Lastly, smoke or fog machines are not permitted within residential units or the Associations Common Areas. Please contact Management with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you!

Preconstruction Update

Management would like to urge all owners who have been contacted by Nautilus to schedule their investigations accordingly.

Kettner Traffic Complaints

As you may know, the pedestrian crossing at Kettner Blvd and “A” Street can be challenging and dangerous. Members requested that contact information for traffic enforcement be provided to the membership so that residents can report incidents as they occur. In researching for the best contact to provide, it was determined that complains should be made to City Council Member, Chris Ward, in order to address this issue. Residents are also instructed to contact the Traffic Division to report incidents. Please find the Traffic Division and Chris Ward’s contact information below:

Be advised that the Association has one (1) small wheeled cart that may be available for use in the event that one is needed.

Committee Formation Requests

During the August 27th Board of Directors meeting, a member of the Association requested that the Board permit the formation of a new Neighborhood Committee. The Neighborhood Committee will serve the purpose of monitoring public and/or private initiatives to evaluate the impact of those initiatives on the Sapphire Tower property and membership.

Also, the Association is still looking for members to volunteer on one or more of the following Committees:

Landscaping—Requires two (2) additional members to activate the Committee.

Management would like to remind all residents that guests must be accompanied by residents at all times when in the common areas. This includes, but is not limited to the Fitness Center, Club room, BBQ area and the Pool and Spa. Please contact management with any questions or concerns you may have. Thank you!

BBQ Instructions

As a courtesy to all those that utilize the BBQ, please ensure that you clean the grill so that others can enjoy it throughout the day. Cleaning the grill can be completed by running the flame to char any remaining food debris on the grill, which can then be scraped off by utilizing one of the wire brushes located in the BBQ drawer.

Also, as a helpful reminder, please find the operating instructions for the BBQ below:

  1. Open the grill hood completely. Examine the interior to be sure it appears normal. Do not attempt to light the grill with the hood closed.
  2. Turn the burner control knobs to OFF position.
  3. Push in the burner control knob and verify that the hot surface igniter glows. The hot surface igniters are located inside the flashtubes.
  4. After the glowing is verified, hold the knob pushed-in for 5 seconds then turn the knob counter clockwise to the biggest flame marking on the bezel. Continue to hold the knob pushed-in for 5 seconds until you see or hear a flame. Then release the knob.
  5. Caution: if ignition does not take place within 5 seconds, turn knob to the off position, wait for 5 minutes and repeat step 4. (Do not use a lighter or matches to light the grill.)
  6. Allow the grill to pre-heat on HI level (the biggest flame) for 5 minutes with the hood closed.

A laminated copy of these instructions is located in the prep-station drawer near the BBQ. Should you have any questions regarding any of these rules or reminders, please contact the Front Desk.
