I hope everyone is doing well. It has been a wet few weeks here in Florida, we are certainly missing the Florida sun! I wanted to put out an email with a few items of interest.
The retaining wall at the pool, both ramps and the bocce ball courts have all been replaced and completed by Summerlin Marine. We are in the process of pricing aluminum railings for the ramps. New benches have been ordered for the bocce courts. JA Taylor has completed the roofs on comfort stations 3 and 4.
We are waiting on the permit for comfort station 2, once the permit is issued they will begin. Cast Electric has started our summer projects on pedestal replacements and Meeks has started work on some of our valves and saddles. Things are moving along here at OR.
We will have a new Administrative Assistant (Laurie) starting here with us on Tuesday May 29, please feel free to call or stop by and welcome her.
We have sent out June's quarterlies which are due on 7/1/2018, in that mailing there was a Annual Shareholder Update Form. If you wish to be in the 2018/2019 directory, you must complete and return the form. The approved changes to the Rules & Regulations were also mailed out in a separate mailing last week.
Hurricane season is quickly approaching us, and we have less then a week before we are officially in season. I ask that you please ensure your homes are secured and all required items are tied down. With that being said, thank you to everyone that has complied with By-Law 11.3.i Tie Downs. For those of you who haven't, I have begun the task of documenting and mailing formal notice of violation/non-compliance letters. Driving through the park the last few days I have noticed there a quite a few units that are not yet in compliance and it appears the owners are gone for the summer. Notices of non-compliance will start going out on June 1, 2018. This is a time consuming process and each lot has to be individually documented, I can't simply send a generic letter stating that you have violated the By-Laws, Florida Statute, or Rules & Regulations. Please review By-Law 11.3.i Tie Downs and Article VIII on Tie-Downs in the Rules & Regulations. If you are leaving for 3 or more days feel free to call the office and I or someone from the staff will be happy to come to your lot and make sure that you are in compliance before your departure, which will save everyone grief down the road.
We had a lot of short term renters last summer and for the most part things went well. The majority checked in with the office upon arrival and checked out upon departure. We did have a few renters who brought golf carts that they didn't have inspected, a few who had more people than allowed under our By-Laws, a few who had more vehicles than parking spaces on the lot, etc. I encourage shareholders to ensure your tenants are fully aware of the Rules & Regulations and the By-Laws, it is the shareholder who will be held accountable for violations and/or non-compliance issues arising from tenant behavior or non-adherence.
Maintenance will begin cleaning out under the boardwalk next week. They will not be sorting items, anything that is left unclaimed after May 30, 2018 will be disposed of.
Thanks, Donna Perez, Ocean Resorts Manager. 772-464-4803
