|7/11/2012 - Hurricane Preparedness Letter - Condos|
|The following letter regarding hurricane preparedness was mailed to all first floor condo residents. |
Dear First Floor Condominium Owners:
The 2012 Hurricane Season is here! We would like to take this opportunity to remind all first floor Owners of your responsibility regarding hurricane shutters:
• Each Owner who plans to be absent during the hurricane season must prepare his Unit before departure by:
o Removing all furniture, plants and other objects from the patio.
o Designating a responsible firm or individual to care for the Condominium in the event of a hurricane threat and/or should the Condominium suffer hurricane damage.
o Furnish the Board with the name of the firm or individual.
• Should the firm or individual not be designated or available, the Association is authorized to take whatever steps are necessary in its discretion to protect the Condominium and Condominium property at the sole cost and expense of the Owner.
First floor condo owners are responsible for putting up their shutters in the event of a storm. Each first floor condo owner has the hardware and instructions in their Welcome Package as well as a sketch showing the windows and their corresponding opening numbers. The shutters are stored in the locked closets beneath the first floor stairwells. Property Management will be available to unlock the closets so that the condo owners can get their shutters before a hurricane.
Note: The hurricane shutters for your unit are your property and you are responsible for their safe keeping and deployment. If you require assistance in installing your shutters, you may refer to our website for the details regarding charges or contact the Management Office.
As a convenience, your shutters are currently locked in closets under the first floor stair wells of your building. However, the Condominium Association is not responsible for damage or loss of hurricane shutters stored in the closets. Furthermore, access to shutters stored in the closets is limited to the normal hours of operation by the Association Management Office, or to special pre storm hours designated by the Property Manager.
Alternatively, you may keep your hurricane shutters in your unit. For your planning purposes, the bundle of shutters for your unit requires a storage space approximately 85 inches long by 16 inches wide by 4 inches high.
No action is required on your part if you want to leave your shutters in the locked closets under the first floor stair wells. If you want to keep your shutters in your unit, call the Association Management Office to schedule a time to get them.
If you have any questions, please contact The Association Offices at 561-638-1622 or stop by the office located in the Clubhouse.
Thank you and let’s all hope for a quiet hurricane season!
