Dryer Vent Cleaning
Most units have completed the mandatory dryer vent cleaning. Any remaining units must be cleaned by December 31, 2018. You will receive notice from Action if you are not on the list of completed units.
The deck resurfacing work is approximately 90% complete. The remaining work should be done in two weeks, depending on weather.
We continue to have an open Board seat to be filled by an owner who wishes to give back to our community. This appointed position will be held until the 2020 Board elections. If you want to learn more, please contact any current Board member.
The Board has signed the gutter cleaning contract with Spurgeon Painting to clean our rain gutters. Spurgeon is the same company that has done this work for the past few years. They will give us two weeks’ notice before starting so we can let you know.
Several owners have requested that the board consider having Gardner’s Guild discontinue the use of Rodeo, a chemical used by Gardner’s Guild to control weeds. Rodeo contains glyphosate, a controversial chemical also used in Roundup. Lois MacLean has volunteered to chair an ad hoc committee to find out more from local agencies who have stopped using Rodeo or Roundup. Gardner’s Guild has recommended we continue their use because alternative weed abatement would be significantly more expensive.
Property Insurance Audit
Travelers Insurance, the company that provides insurance for our property, informed us of two concerns we need to address.
1. Our chimneys should be inspected yearly and cleaned if necessary. The board is seeking proposals from chimney cleaning services to inspect all chimneys. If cleaning is required, the owner is responsible for having it done.
2. Mill Valley code 308.1.4 prohibits the use of open flame barbecues on combustible balconies or within 10 feet of combustible construction. There are exceptions for one- and two-family dwellings, balconies and decks having an automatic sprinkler system, and LP-gas cooking with a nominal 1-pound LP gas capacity. Unfortunately, the first two exceptions do not apply at Sunrise Pointe. The insurance company has asked that we modify our governing documents accordingly.
