Our crews continue to make progress with cleanup. A couple more workers showed up to work today, which is helpful.
For the time being, we request that everyone (even owners) check in with Security on the ground floor of Tower I between 9:00 and 5:00. We need to know who is in the building in case something comes up. If you are sending a representative who is not already known to Security or Owner Services to check on your unit, your representative must carry with them a paper copy of an email from you containing your authorization for them to enter your unit. For obvious reasons, we can’t just let anybody in.
We don’t have the staff available to check on every unit. Once your unit has been checked, please send an email giving us the condition of your unit and the date checked to Owner Services at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am hopeful that Mary will be back at work soon and she will be able to compile a list of checked units.
As of today, I still haven’t heard of any reports of significant interior damage to units.
I have received several questions about the painting schedule. When I last spoke to Paul Shamblin, he had not been able to reach the superintendent of the painting crew. So, I don’t have an update about the overall schedule. However, we intend to continue and complete the painting. If we don’t do it now, it will be a very long time before we find another company to complete it. And it will be very expensive because there is so much work to be done around town.
So, if you are thinking about renting your unit to storm victims, I recommend that you wait until we can determine the new paint schedule. We will still have to shut down floors for a week at a time, and the renters might not be very happy about that.
Tower I Floors 18-23 were painted last week before the storm and will reopen on Monday morning.
Tower I floors 12-17 will be closed on Monday morning for painting, and will re-open next Monday, October 22nd. If for some reason this changes, I will let you know.
Also, I have received several questions about the schedule for annual meeting. It is still planned for November 3rd. If that changes, we will let you know. There may not be a dinner party on Friday night, but we will let you know about that also.
Garbage is scheduled to be picked up on Monday. The dumpsters are full. I hope that they will be providing regular service.
16 air conditioning compressors on the roof of Tower I, and 2 compressors on the roof of Tower II were toppled over by the wind. I sent emails to all affected owners. If you did not receive an email from me, then your compressor is still in place. However, we have not been able to check any of them for operational issues.
For those of you whose units are managed by the Resort Collection:
I spoke with Mike Stange, Generall Manager of the Resort Collection today. Mike has committed to having personnel on site to visit every Resort Collection managed unit at Majestic on Monday and will send me a list of their findings on Tuesday or Wednesday. (We will make sure that RC managed units on floors 12-17 of Tower I are visited before painting begins).
The Resort Collection managed units use “swipe keys”. Those keys require internet service to be able to program. So, for those of you who have asked me about getting a swipe key, you will have to wait until internet service is restored. Hopefully, internet — at least to the front desk — will be restored in a few days. They are working hard on it. Until then, security has a master key that will get you into your unit, but they cannot give it out.
DANGEROUS CONDITIONS STILL EXIST IN AND AROUND THE PROPERTY. PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND PLEASE DON’T RENT YOUR UNITS UNTIL WE CAN GET THE PLACE CLEANED UP AND HAVE SUFFICIENT STAFF TO KEEP UP WITH THE WORKLOAD.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
