Building Engineer – Schedule Change
Please take note that Building Engineer, Leone Tietge, will now be onsite Monday-Friday. If you have any maintenance issues that require roof access or plumbing shut off, please schedule at least 48 hours in advance for those days. You can contact Management at 800-400-2284 to arrange for this.
Holiday Tree Disposal
The Association’s scheduled date to dispose of Christmas trees is January 5, 2017. Please have trees placed in the designated spot prior to this day to ensure pick-up.
The Winners Are…
The winners of the holiday door and balcony decorating contest are units 105 and 111! Congratulations and thanks to everyone who participated!
Red Cart Usage
As a continual reminder, the red carts are for all resident use. Once you have transported your items, you must return the cart to the garage level by the elevators. Additionally, if you are having work done on your unit, your contractor must also remember to return the carts once the transportation of goods is done. The carts cannot be kept at any unit for any reason. Please also remember to clean any spills or debris. Your neighbor will thank you!
Proper Use of Garbage Disposals
Columbia Place continues to experience kitchen sink back-ups. Use of a garbage disposal in a stacked unit situation is much different than a single story home. Please throw away your food into the garbage. By putting foods down the disposal (rice, pastas, eggshells, etc.) this increases the chance of a backup in your unit or one below you – resulting in costly damage paid by all owners via monthly assessments and can affect the following years budget.
Emergency Situation Protocol
In any type of emergency situation, maintenance or life threatening, do NOT email – PLEASE CALL! Action and Action After-Hours can be reached at 949-450-0202. If you are experiencing a water intrusion and have called it in, DO NOT LEAVE your unit even if it is a slow back up. You may end up being responsible for damages due to negligence. If there is anything that is life threatening, do not hesitate to call 9-1-1.
Clean & Safe – (619) 234-8900
Residents are encouraged to call Clean & Safe if they notice homeless loitering at Columbia Place. Clean & Safe will ask the homeless to leave and provide them locations of shelters. Additionally, if residents notice graffiti, broken glass, garbage on the sidewalks around the community on a day where Boiling Maintenance is not onsite, these things can also be reported to Clean & Safe. This is an initiative by the City of San Diego that all downtown residents pay for via property taxes, take advantage of this to keep the area “clean and safe!”
