Volume 4 Issue 5
Here are other buildings caught on camera this past month with illegal dumping:
Durham Y
Tilford M
Tilford P
Illegal dumping of bulk items is an epidemic in our village. This is the reason behind the Master Management CVE PROUD campaign.

If you see your building listed on the CVE PROUD Wall of Shame, let your Board know that we will not tolerate people turning our beautiful village into a dumping ground.

More beautiful fountains coming to CVE's lakes
Three additional areas are getting fountains as part of Master Management's summer capital improvement efforts.

The lakes behind Grantham A and Farnham N are scheduled to receive fountains, while the fountain behind Berkshire E will be getting an upgrade.
Are you having work done?
Know the law!
What do YOU need?
What does the CONTRACTOR need?
If you have ANY work done in your condo, you are responsible for ensuring ALL the required paperwork is in order. But what is the difference between a permit, a license, a contractor, and a handyman? Here is a quick summary for you:
A LICENSE is issued to a contractor and proves they have the skills and authority to do the specific kind of work for which you are hiring them. Licenses are issued by either Broward County or the State of Florida, NOT THE CITY.

A PERMIT is issued for a specific project and proves you have permission to have the work done. Permits are issued by the City of Deerfield Beach, NOT THE COUNTY OR THE STATE.
  • Every contractor is REQUIRED to have - and show you - a license for the kind of work for which you're hiring them.

  • The license MUST BE issued by either Broward County or the State of Florida. Other county licenses ARE NOT VALID in Broward.

  • MAKE SURE IT'S IN YOUR PAPERWORK. All contracts should have the contractor's license number in them. It should also be on their business cards.


  • Licenses are for specific to skills. If you need a plumber, don't be fooled by being shown a license to do electrical. Make sure your contractor HAS THE SPECIFIC LICENSE for the work you need.

  • ALMOST EVERY JOB REQUIRES A LICENSED CONTRACTOR. There are only three jobs that do not require a licensed contractor: 1) replacing screens, 2) pressure washing, and 3) installing carpet. ALL OTHER JOBS REQUIRE A LICENSE.

  • THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A HANDYMAN! If someone says they are a handyman, they are probably an unlicensed contractor. Don't be fooled by someone who tells you they do not need a license because they are a handyman.
  • ALMOST EVERY JOB REQUIRES A PERMIT. There are only three jobs that do not require a permit: 1) replace flooring, 2) pressure washing, and 3) painting. If you are doing ANYTHING else, you need a permit.

  • YOUR CONTRACTOR MUST BE THE ONE TO GET THE PERMIT. In Century Village East, residents are not allowed to apply for a permit. If your contractor asks you to get the permit, it might be because they are unlicensed and don't want to get caught!

No ID - No Ride!
Security will be stepping up enforcement on checking IDs before riding the CVE buses.

All riders MUST HAVE a village ID. If you have a caregiver, they also MUST HAVE a village ID. The only exception is a visitor riding WITH a resident.
Statewide problems with vaccination replacement cards
If you have lost your vaccination card, you are not alone. 

People across the state are having problems requesting a replacement card. REPLACEMENT CARDS MUST COME DIRECTLY FROM THE GOVERNMENT. Private organizations (such as Master Management) have no authority to help with a replacement card. 

If you need a replacement card, visit the CDC website for more guidance: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/iis/contacts-locate-records.html#state
Be patient! The state is having many problems tracking down records. But remember, requesting a new card is something that must be between you (as the vaccine recipient) and the state health department. Master Management does not have the authority to intervene in the process.

Message from the Executive Director
Summer paving begins next month
The 2021 summer repaving project will be starting at the end of June. Paving will begin in the Grantham Area and will continue with Ashby, Berkshire, Keswick and Islewood, respectively. 

Paving schedules and instructions for specific associations will be announced and posted one week prior to the paving date. The latest updates will be posted throughout the summer on our website: www.KeepingCVEBeautiful.com.

If you are leaving for the summer, and have a car parked in one of the above areas, PLEASE MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO HAVE IT MOVED WHEN PAVING REACHES YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD.

Meanwhile, please allow me to wish all the mothers and grandmothers in CVE a Happy Mother's Day. I also want to extend appreciation to all those who served our country in anticipation of Memorial Day this month.
Finally, remember, if you need to visit the Master Management office, please wear a mask. Better yet, give us a call. I am sure almost everything you need can be taken care of over the phone. You can also email us at customerservice@cvedb.com.

Stay safe.
