Welcome Adan

Please all give Adan a warm welcome to the community as Columbia Place’s new engineer.

Water Usage

As rates continuously increase for the necessary utilities, please be cognizant of your electrical and water usage.  The 2019 ProForma Budget that was sent out to the Membership reflected an increase in water, which contributed to the overall increase in the budget.  In addition, the Board supports the “Go Green” efforts and encourages all Columbia Place residents to partake in this movement, to not only save money but also, save the environment!

Security Committee  

Columbia Place’s security Chairman is Boris Ilic. If you have any questions or concerns pertaining to security or would like to volunteer to serve on the committee please contact borilic@hotmail.com

Vacant Board Seat

There is currently a vacant seat on the Columbia Place Board of Directors.  If you are an Owner in good standing and would like to be considered for appointment, please contact Management at ggrana@actionlife.com with some information about yourself and why you would like to serve on the Columbia Place Board.

Window/AC Repairs

The Board of Directors met with WinDor Representative, Russ Bellows in regards to working with Columbia Place as their preferred vendor for windows. WinDor now has a $2,000 minimum for residents. Discounts begin for residents once the total is over $5,000 and up to a 30% discount when over $20,000. The Board has requested a Saturday that WinDor come onsite, where Owners can get a proposal from them to help in getting a group deal for the Residents. Please notify management within the next 30 days with thoughts on this and if you would be willing to meet on a Saturday to discuss this and come up with a similar plan regarding AC Units.

Avoid Costly Sink Backups

The disposal may grind it, but Columbia’s pipes cannot handle grease, scraps, cornhusks, egg shells, peels (apples, carrots, etc.), oils/butters, excessive soap, coffee grounds, or rice. Moreover, since condos are stacked, a drain issue in one condo likely impacts those above/below. Please remember – and ask cleaning staff to remember – to avoid the items listed to help keep Columbia’s drains flowing.

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.
