Reminder: Garbage Chutes

Last night (Oct 5), the janitors were called for an ’emergency’ unblocking of the garbage chute. Someone had dropped a large plastic bucket down the garbage drop which blocked the exit. It took the janitors 3 hours to unblock the garbage because they had to go to each floor and remove garbage piled up since Tuesday.

As a reminder: the garbage chutes are not to be used for anything other than garbage that is bagged and securely tied in a ‘Safeway-style grocery bag’.

That means no pizza boxes, no planters, no buckets, no brooms, no large garbage bags, and definitely no unbagged garbage materials should ever be put down the garbage chute.

Please review the list of Huntsman rules and beware: any residents found to be violating these rules will be fined, and may be held accountable for any costs associated with the resolution of the issue.

There are garbage bins located on the lower parkade, where you can place large items in the bins, as well as a place to deposit any recycling. While it may be inconvenient to walk items like this downstairs the consequences of attempting to shove them down the garbage chute will ultimately cause major inconvenience for everyone else.

Please be thoughtful about the use of the garbage chute.

Cleaning Up After Your Pet is Your Responsiblity

Early Friday evening (Sept 22, 2017) dog poop was reported on the floor of the small elevator…apparently left there by a resident pet owner. A Board member was required to clean this up.

The lack of respect this demonstrates for other residents in the building is intolerable.

Pet ownership is a privilege not a right.

The rules regarding pet ownership are absolutely clear and picking up after your dog and properly disposing of pet litter is top of the list.

Be assured that any pet owner found to be in breach of pet ownership rules will be sanctioned to the fullest extent provided by our by-laws up to and including withdrawal of pet approval.

Cleaning of Sanitary Risers (Water-Out Lines)

The Board has recently made arrangements with a contractor, Flopros Drain Services Inc. (“Flopros”), to have the vertical sanitary risers in the building thoroughly cleaned and hydro flushed.

The work is scheduled to be undertaken next weekend over two days: Saturday, September 30 and Sunday, October 1, 2017 and will commence at 9:30am on each day.

In order to ensure a proper cleaning Flopros will need access to certain units during these days for a period of approximately 15-30 minutes for each unit.

 

The revised list of
affected units are:

Saturday, Sept 30:
203, 204, 206,
403, 404, 405, 406,
603, 604, 605, 606,
903, 904, 905, 906
1203, 1204,  1205, 1206.

Sunday, Oct. 1:
201, 202,
401, 402,
601, 602,
901, 902
1201, 1202.

 

Residents of all the affected units listed above will be required to provide access to their units as scheduled above.

If a resident is unable to attend on the scheduled day they must make arrangements to provide a key to their unit in advance. Please contact Gisele, building manager and arrangements will be made to collect a key.

Consider this notice pursuant to By-law 3, if a resident is not home at the time Flopros need access and a key has not been provided in advance, access will be gained by using a locksmith, the cost of such locksmith to be borne by the owner of the affected unit.

This work is necessary to ensure properly free-flowing stacks throughout the building. Be aware all unit-specific plumbing (which connect to the vertical risers) are the responsibility of the unit owners.

We trust that with this advance notice will ensure the project will run smoothly.

Huntsman Access Keys Fully Disabled as of September 20, 2017

As a security measure starting Wednesday, September 20, 2017 you will no longer be able to access the building front doors with the old key.  Please make sure you have received and are using the FOB.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your attention and co-operation in this regard.

If you do not have your FOB, and for related FOB issues, please contact Condeau at 403-531-1586.

Yours Truly,

The Board of Directors, The Huntsman

Security Notice [Beltline Blockwatch]: Huntsman Garage Break-in – Please check your vehicles

*ACTION NOTICE: Moving forward, we will be disabling the old key-access for the garage doors.*

We’ve had another intruder gain access to the garage (Sept 12 @ 4:51am). To our knowledge, access was only gained to the upper garage area but we advise residents with vehicles on either level check their vehicle and ensure they’re not missing anything.

Please note: the intruders have routinely taken fobs from the vehicles they’re accessing—for the safety of all residents DO NOT LEAVE FOBS IN YOUR VEHICLE as it gives the holder access to the building and the garage. In the event your fob is stolen, notify the Board immediately so we can deactivate it as swiftly as possible.

Getting Additional Fobs: One garage fob has already been issued per unit; if you require an additional garage fob(s), they can be purchased for $75/fob. Please contact the Board to setup a new fob, should you require one.

Thanks,

The Huntsman Board

Rules & Regulations Update: Move In / Out

The Board has reviewed our current practices regarding moves into and out of The Huntsman and recently decided that, going forward, all such moves should be supervised.

We believe this is beneficial in that it will:
(1) Ensure move is properly coordinated with the resident;
(2) Improve building security during the move; and
(3) Allow us to independently identify any damage to common property that may occur during the move.

A private security firm has been retained for this purpose and will be have a security guard in attendance for all scheduled moves.

To defray the cost of this increased supervision we ask that the resident provide a $50 nonrefundable cheque to the security guard in attendance on the day of the move along with the standard damage deposit, a refundable $200 cheque, both made out to ‘Huntsman Condo’.

The changes will take effect October 1, 2017. ‘Rules and Regulations‘ have been updated to reflect these changes. Please read them carefully. We trust that all residents will understand the benefits and abide by the new rules.

The Board always reserves the right to impose monetary fines for noncompliance as it sees fit from time to time.

 

Thank you,

The Huntsman Board
