Parking Lot Sealcoating to Begin Next Week

Note: Schedule may be changed in case of rain.

 

South Lot (pink)

  • Monday June 19 - sealcoating of entire lot. All vehicles must be moved out of the pink area by 8:00am on the 19th

  • Thursday June 22 - striping of entire Lot. Vehicles may be returned to lot after 6:00pm on the 22nd

ALL vehicles must be removed from all uncovered parkinq spaces, from the entire lot, PRIOR TO THE START OF WORK.

NO DRIVING WILL BE ALLOWED INTO OR OUT OF THE ENTIRE LOT DURING THE SCHEDULED WORK PERIOD.

If you do not move or make arrangements to move your vehicle it will be towed at your expense.

 

PLAN AHEAD

  • If your vehicle is parked in your garage or garageport and you intend to use it on the days work is scheduled for your lot, remove your vehicle the day before work begins and park it in the other lot. The unoccupied garageports in the closest row will be opened and you may park in any of them.  DO NOT close the garageport as you won’t have the code to reopen it.
  • Advise any contractors or delivery services or guests that access to your lot will be prohibited on these days.
  • Refrain from walking on the newly sealcoated area to ensure that the tarry material used in the process does not get on your shoes and tracked into the building or any other places you may be going.
  • Make other plans for walking your dog until the sealcoated lot is completely dry.

If you have any questions please contact Holly at Elliott Merrill Community Management at hleide@elliottmerrill.com or call 772-466-2630

Thank you for your cooperation during this project!

 

Lobby Update

The North Lobby is sporting its new color scheme and most residents say it looks great!

The wallpaper in the front lobby, elevator lobby, mailroom, and hallway to the party room has been removed.  These areas have been sanded and patched and painted with a color scheme that complements the lobby furniture.

If you haven't seen the decorating in the North Tower please take a look the next time you're here.     The Decorating Committee has made a great start in brightening and modernizing the look of Tiara.

The same work will be done in the South Tower in mid-July.   The delay is due to the need to install a new air conditioning unit in the South party room, which should be done about mid-July.  Then the upgrade to the South lobby can begin.

Some of the changes in the North lobby are pictured here.   Accessories are subject to change so this is not the final view.

President’s Summary – April Board Meeting

The April Board meeting was held April 13th at 10 a.m. in the North Building.    President Bill Dicker's summary follows:

                       Tiara Towers Board Meeting – April 13, 2017

President’s Report

Hello all.  Spring is here and many interesting projects have been approved.

  1. Only 14 hot water heaters over 13 years of age, of a starting 49, remain to be replaced.  The final revision of rental rules was approved and will soon be distributed.  New domestic water pumps will be installed next week.  Our contract with Comcast for improved bulk tv service will soon go into effect.  Ellipticals (approved in February) will  be installed in the two fitness rooms.
  2. Our antiquated cooling tower (AC/Heat) control systems will be replaced in the next few weeks providing more efficient unit service and electric power savings.
  3. The Board approved a program where unit AC condensation evacuation tubes will be serviced (cleaned and inspected) at Association expense to reduce the risk of destructive AC unit flooding.
  4. The floors of the elevator cabs will be replaced with a low maintenance vinyl wood grain tile system as the present tiles are difficult to clean and breaking into pieces.
  5. The Decorating Committee received a “green light” to proceed with Phase Two of their project to re-decorate our public spaces. The Board voted to hire a contractor to remove the wallpaper from all of the main floor public areas with the exception of the two party rooms (to be re-decorated in 2018), painting the walls with two colors approved by the Committee and the Board.

The four benches in the two buildings now covered in gold will be reupholstered.

  1. The Landscaping Committee is developing a plan to replace the dying oleander plants on the A1A side of our front wall.
  2. The Security Committee and the Rules Committee presented a number of ideas to improve security and hopefully reduce some of our parking problems in both building parking lots. The Board approved committee requests to further develop their proposals.
  3. The Board approved a project (pending attorney approval) that will provide interested homeowners with a cheaper internet and phone alternative in contrast with the fees charged by Comcast and AT&T.
  4. The Board voted to reimburse a homeowner for plumbing fees (up to $500.00) incurred as a result of two attempts to open clogged drain lines. The unit involved will also have their faulty drain pipe system rebuilt next week.
  5. The Board discussed several maintenance projects that will occur this summer.

Renting at Tiara

All Tiara Owners who rent their units should review the revised Rental Rules as adopted at the Board meeting on April 13, 2017.    Both Owners and Renters are required to know and abide by the Tiara Rules and Regulations adopted in 2015.

 

Tiara Towers Rules for Owners who Rent/ Lease

Adopted April 13, 2017

  1.  All rentals/leases must be approved by the Board prior to the renter taking occupancy.  Rental/lease agreements must be submitted on the current Tiara form at least 4 weeks before the rental/lease period begins. If the owner secures a rental within four weeks or several days before the renter is to arrive, the owner must immediately call Elliott Merrill for expedited processing.
  2. Rental application fee = $150.00 to be submitted with the application. Repeat renter/lessor applications with the same landlord are exempt from the fee but the landlord must submit a copy of the new lease regardless.
  3. As per our revised and amended Tiara documents, Elliott Merrill conducts a criminal and a credit check on new owners in advance of sale and a criminal check on all new renters. These checks take time. Owners and renters must be aware that a negative criminal check will void the application and the rental even if the tenant has arrived at Tiara.
  4. It is the owner’s responsibility (not the agent’s or the renter’s) to submit an application with payment in a timely manner.
  5. Rentals/Leases may not be for less than 60 days. Rentals and Leases that exceed one year must be re-approved prior to the anniversary date of the rental/lease.
  6. Renters must follow all Tiara rules. Owners are responsible for all fines imposed due to a rule violation(s) by their tenants.  An owner relinquishes all Tiara use privileges for the duration of the rental/lease.
  7. Renters must have access to owner garageports
  8. No owner may rent or lease if they are delinquent in their financial obligations to the Association – before or during the lease/rental.
  9. If a renter arrives before an application for rental is received and approved, the owner may be fined up to $100.00. plus application fee per #2 above.

BY SIGNING BELOW, BOTH THE OWNER AND THE RENTER ACKNOWLEDGE THAT:

  1. THEY HAVE READ THIS ENTIRE DOCUMENT.
  2. THEY UNDERSTAND ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS DOCUMENT
  3. THEY AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ALL OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS DOCUMENT
