3rd Quarter Newsletter
Hi everyone! It is amazing the holidays are almost here as we are fast approaching the end of another year. The annual meeting is scheduled for Tuesday December 8th from 1pm to 3 pm in the Keowee Room of the Event Center.
Third quarter was not as crazy as the first half of the year however, we did complete several projects.
Crawl space moisture issues:
As noted in the mid-year newsletter, during an inspection of the crawl spaces numerous items were noted as moisture problems that needed to be corrected. All issues were owner responsibility. Several crawl spaces had leaking pipes, etc. These items were addressed with each owner and most have been repaired.
Dryer vents not vented to the outside creating excessive moisture in the crawl spaces. An owner responsibility which are being corrected.
The new exterior drain pipe has been installed and working properly to divert water away from the foundation.
3 trees were removed at the rear of the units.
Bldg. 560: Crawl space below units 3 & 5
New French drains and sump pumps were installed. As French drains are perforated, gravel was installed around the pipe to help prevent silt, etc. from entering and clogging pipe. The company that installed these two will be conducting a reinspection in 2021.
560 Bldg: Outside lighting issue. An electrician evaluated the issue and found a shorted wire. That has been repaired.
CWV Income Tax filing:
The 2019 income taxes have been filed.
Four trees in front of these bldg. were overgrown and needed pruning away from steps and decks. We waited until the blooming stage was completed as not to damage future growth. This has been completed.
Critter damage on siding on each front corner board. Replaced and painted.
During an inspection two problems were found. A disconnected downspout and deteriorated wood in the crawl space. Both items were repaired.
A leak was discovered. The roof jacks that flash the plumbing vents needed to be sealed. This was completed.
Tropical storm damage:
Due to the storm CWV had a lot of debris, such as small limbs, pine needles and leaves covered most areas. However, we were very fortunate. The landscapers came Friday Oct. 30, cleaned all parking lots and shared areas. The second week of Nov the landscapers will clean the rest of the debris left on the grounds.
*Amendment to By-Laws:
The Amendment concerning future financial consideration to members while serving on the Board was presented to the Membership and approved. Addendum and The Rules and Regulations have been recorded at the court house and are posted on CWV website. (Note: The email version of the newsletter referred to this as an Addendum, but it was actually an Amendment).
Foothills Management was approved and will start January 1, 2021. You will have an opportunity to meet with them at the annual meeting.
REMINDER: CRAWL SPACES ARE NOT STORAGE AREAS. FOOTHILLS MANAGEMENT WILL CONDUCT PERIODIC INSPECTIONS SO IF YOU HAVE ANY PERSONAL ITEMS STORED IN THE CRAWL SPACE PLEASE REMOVE THEM. FOOTHILLS WILL ALSO CONDUCT A FULL INSPECTION OF ALL BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS.
REMINDER: IT IS EACH OWNERS RESPONSIBILITY TO PERIODICALLY CHECK THEIR PIPES, HOT WATER HEATERS ETC. IN CRAWL SPACES FOR ANY LEAKS AND REPAIR. ALSO, WE WANT TO REMIND OWNERS TO PERIODICALLY CHECK THEIR OUTSIDE AC UNITS.
