Sept. '18 Buildings Meeting Minutes

Buildings Committee Meeting Minutes

Date: Sept 11th, 2018

  • Attendance - Thomas, Corey, Taften, Julia in attendance

  • Old Business

  • We need to vote on the two best options for Washing Machine replacement:

  • Option A: Maytag with 5-year warranty

  • Unanimous vote - and cost w/in $2k approved range from 8/28 Board Mtg

  • Option B: SpeedQueen with 3-year warranty

Update 9/18/18 Maytag machine delivered. It is very low. Woody has gotten a bid for all other work but not the washing machine risers. I have asked him again if it is something he can make happen. In the mean time, would we like a base under that machine? We can do up to 10 inches.

  • Intercom repairs and reviews: Coming out the week of October 1

  • We’ve reached out to, and are pending updates from, these vendors:

  • Intercom upgrades (third bid, TBD) as well as repairs (above)

  • Gutters

  • Woody also looked at this on 9/11/18

  • Roofing (Update 9/17/18 Email from John at Flynn with a Bid)

  • Fire Extinguishers - (Update 9/20/18 - Inspection complete)

  • Pest Control (Comes out monthly and can be asked into a unit anytime he’s out)

  • Contractor Woody Dixon at CVC to give a bid on:

  • Railing repair at 1801

  • Broken window from back of 1801, near the back door. That window also needs new sealant.

  • Woody is already gone but I will get a bid on the same windows Acme bid on for sealant.

  • Gutters for front of building

  • Trim in the back of 1807 and 1811 basement hallway

  • Laundry Room risers (24inches) for washers and dryers with pull out board for a resting place for laundry basket

  • Basement hallways for sealant repair over limestone

  • New business

  • Is there a Buildings To-Do list (vacuuming, washing walls, etc)

  • Yes! We (Bilbaughs) are working to get this more prominently shared and posted on Buildings page

  • Is my roommate allowed to do work for Buildings, Grounds, etc?

  • Yes! So long as it is booked by “household” -- i.e. 1801 #2, 1811 #6, etc, then yes! We welcome all help

Standing Buildings To-Do List: Any and all residents and neighbors can help with these!

Thank You to Val, Doug, and Taften who helped tackle items on this list!
