Please be on the lookout for the eblast on when this will begin!
Please be mindful of your water usage. All owners pay the water bill for the building via assessments. With the drought and increase is water rates, assessments could potentially increase if we are not careful!
Bulk Items Left at the Trash Room
If you have large item to get rid of, please contact Management prior to leaving in the trash room. As you are aware, the trash rooms are not large and items piling up could cause a fire hazard. If you are able to break down such items, please do so. This is not the job of the onsite staff.
