A WORD FROM YOUR PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS: More & more residents are finally starting to log onto the Sea Haven Website. One very important note: The Sea Haven Web Site is the only official web site for any and all notifications and information.
Season is approaching and winter residents are starting to come back we are concerned about water intrusion and floods. RESIDENTS PLEASE: If yoy have a plastic water filter please replace them with stainless steel or remove the plastic water filter all together since these have been known to crack etc. The stainless steel ones will cost a bit more but can save you and your neighbors a flood.
Please remember hot water tanks are only good on average for 10 years. This is another very serious flood problem if your tank blows and your not at home. Everyone should be aware of the date on their hot water tank and if its older than 10 years it is a accident waiting to happen. Change it as soon as possible your neighbors will appreciate it and so will you.
Another cause of water intrusion is air conditioning drain pans that get clogged and stop draining causing the pan over flows and possibly causes water leakage into your own apartment or worse into the closet of your neighbors apartment below you before its discovered. If you are not in town this could be a very serious leak before its discovered. Please have your A/C systems serviced and make sure your drain pans are working as they should.
FIRE SPRINKLER RETROFITTING: The final vote was tallied at the November 17, 2016 meeting. Voting to opt out passed with no problem. A total of 199 votes were received from the association members. The board of directors made motion at the budget meeting to accept the wishes of the majority of Sea Haven Owners and opting out of the sprinkler retrofit was passed. The new law requires that
the vote be registered and recorded in the Broward County Records as well as in Tallahassee. Next week we will be filing in Broward County and as soon as we receive the filing we will then register it with Tallahassee.
At the Budget Meeting on November 17, 2016 The Board of Directors adopted the 2017 operating budget in the amount of $1,279,795 or $315.53 maintenance assessment per apartment per month. At the same meeting 194 owners voted to adopt the statutory reserves required by law in the amount of $273,658 or $67.47 per month per apartment. The board made motion to accept the vote of the residents and the following was approved beginning January 1,2017. The monthly maintenance fees will now be $383.00 per month per apartment an $8.00 increase from previous years.
