POOLS/SPA
This week it isn’t about the waiting game of when the final quotes come in or the repair of the Spa, it’s the…

 

…TOILET PAPER CAPER.
Petit Theft (petty theft) in Florida is the taking of property valued under $750.00. It is a first-degree misdemeanor with penalties of up to 1 year in jail or 12 months probation and/or a $1,000.00 fine. We have someone who feels the bathroom supplies belong to them.
At night they have been going from pool house bathroom to bathroom taking all the toilet paper.
Residents, if you see something say something.

Good morning residents.

The board has approved Option B. This will re-do all the plumbing lines from the pump to the gutter drain with a price tag of 75 to 100K.  Before this project moves forward a full detailed quote will be resubmitted to the board from the original two vendors.  We are also trying to get a quote from a third vendor.

The board has approved the quote from Mako Pools for $6,375.00 for a full resurfacing of the Spa. This process will take approximately two weeks. You will be notified before work is scheduled to begin.

CLUBHOUSE RENOVATION – NO TRESPASSING
 

 

  • Theater – The Hearing Loop system has been installed. This is a special sound system used by people with hearing aids. A hearing loop consists of physical loops of cable which are placed around the theater.

Let me introduce myself.  My name is Susan Levine, I am your new HPA President.  I’ve lived in HP Phase IV full time for the past nine years. I have spent the last four years on the Phase IV board. Last year as its President and this year as Vice President. I have served on several HP committees throughout the past nine years.The position of President is to run board meetings, execute the policies that the board votes on, oversee Committees, see that the day to day business is carried out, and sign all contracts.  Campbell Management is our management company, please let them manage the community.

 

 

I am told that many residents are asking whether I will be creating an email like the Friday, Community Connection. The answer is yes, I will; however, I need to have some time to interact with our staff and catch up on the inner workings of HPA.  My newsletter will start in mid-April and it will be titled “TO THE POINTE”.

As of this date, we are on schedule and on budget.  We post weekly pictures of what is being done on the inside of the clubhouse on our website.
