Board Briefing | 5.18.23

Updated: May 19, 2023

In order to keep you informed about our latest, and ongoing, efforts to get our property functioning and more beautiful than ever, I would like to share the following information:

The special assessment of $25,000 is due on June 1, and we would really appreciate payment in full. However, because we cannot charge a penalty if you make two payments, you may make one payment of $12,500 on June 1, and one payment of $12,500 on September 1

As you know, the board approved the 2023 budget which increased the dollar amount on our quarterly assessments. The current/new amount is $ 3935.12. This increase is effective for all of 2023, therefore more money is now owed for 2023. That dollar amount is$ 2677.78. This outstanding balance is currently due July 1st, but the payment can be extended if requested in advance.

Altieri has inspected all units. Young and Associates did an earlier inspection of the windows and doors, but Altieri is concerned their report grossly underestimates the damage. We have also signed an agreement with GCI to inspect, do water testing, and assist Altieri in the claim with our insurance company.

We have negotiated a contract with Safe Zone for $215,423 to replace 39 common area doors. These doors were either damaged by the storm, or just worn out. The doors include the stairway doors, owner storage entrance doors, trash rooms, lobby exit doors, and roof doors.

A contract with Power Plus in the amount of $42,228 has been presented to the board. They will repair the generator and diesel motor which provided emergency power for lighting, elevators and fire equipment.

The long-range steering committee has recommended to the board that we approve the W. J. Johnson plan for the front gate and entrance. A few individuals have asked to see the supporting documentation on rules applicable to the changes and that is attached to this blog.

Other contracts that are pending board approval are the seawall replacement, roof and gutter repairs, strapping of the A/C units on the roof, and A/C replacements in the storage areas.

Just a quick reminder to all that if you are considering structural work in your condo like windows and doors, all work must be submitted and approved by the Architectural Committee.

Please know we are continuing to work diligently to keep our restoration projects moving steadily forward.

Please share more details about ARS/MMA: How were they selected, who recommended them, was there time to check references, did our lawyer review the contract, what are the lien details, did they complete their work, how much of lien was paid, what is the interest on the outstanding amount, etc etc etc?


To help out, Larry's reasonable questions (from FB): if this was answered before and i missed it i apologize. if the entrance was put back the way it was would the other changes be required or would the replacement be grandfathered. i know the additional lane is due to the problem of rejected visitors and the use of the new system. oh has always had an entry system and why has this suddenly become a must. i tried to the oh site but unfortunately did not know how to i did receive a partial answer end of march. entry system was causing few minutes delay if no one was there to let person in and other complexes had extra lane. perhaps i…


I read all of the FDOT and town code but see nothing that says we are required to make changes to the drive due to Ian. Can we get written clarification from the City and FD telling us we are required to make these changes and why? We did not obstruct traffic with our driveway prior to I and fire trucks have been able to access our property for many years, what is the problem now that Ian has [passed?


I have seen many posts regarding the budgets and how repayment will take place. I know there are efforts to raise funds for needed repairs. Because there isn’t a lot of detail or line items (I may have missed them)….is there a line item for interest and repayment of contractors like ARS? I have to believe the finance charges are mounting? Even though we are waiting on the insurance settlement…there appears to be a shortfall? I’d think it would be prudent to get ahead of the balances and start working on those…? Has this been addressed?


Mike I called Tallahassee and they said our BoD CANNOT do that
