Special Assessment Project Update
The Board of Directors (BOD) made the decision to redesign the buildings of HBV in order to provide a savings to our repairs. This decision will not shorten the term of assessment because the savings will be used for repairs where needed. Renee commented that $38,740 has been used to repair the A Building. A Building has essentially been rebuilt. Repairs will be made as the work progresses.
Ed Anthony discussed the soffit replacement and removal. The soffits will be discussed at the BOD Meeting at 1:00 P.M. The soffit has to be removed for painting and repairs.
A homeowner asked what we are going to do about the buildings that have already been shingled all the way down. Ed stated that this was to be discussed by the BOD and no decision has been made at this time. K building is an example of the possible changes to each building.
