Members of the tenants' association's executive committee met with Stellar representative on August 12th about building issues. Here are a few of the items:
RECYCLE BINS FOR THE COMPACTOR ROOMS:
On August 11, 2009, at our request, Stellar put a new SECOND bin for recyclables in each compactor room. Unfortunately, people on
2 East, 3 East, 5 East and 5 West, 8 West, and 9 West
took the second bin between their installation and the next morning. Those tenants may not have known that the bin was there for all tenants and thought it was being thrown out. If you happen to have taken one, please put it back so we'll all have more capacity for recyclables.
Clean cans go in the smaller bin. Clean plastics, glass and aluminum go in the other can, and paper goes on the top shelf. Please do not leave anything with food on it in the compactor room, since that attracts roaches. (Crush pizza boxes and put them inside bags and put the bag down the chute.)
If the bathroom vent is spewing dirt in rather than sucking it out, please notify Carlos. There are dirt-trappers around each suction fan on the roof, and Stellar promises they will be cleaned.
TV ANTENNA (which hasn't been showing Channels 2, 4, 5, and 9) should be fixed within 2 weeks. Cable customers are unaffected.
SIDE DOOR SECURITY. Those who have difficulty walking will be getting new keys that cannot be copied for the side doors. That means the locks will be changed.
BACKYARD CLEANUP - The backyard is supposed to be cleaned up - and the bins on the east side will be put in the sheds. (The west side shed has machinery in it that Stellar says it will try to move.)
STAIRWELL DOORS TO BE CHECKED FOR FIRE SAFETY - Stellar will check to ensure that all stairwell doors open and close at the required legal pressure.
A few other items were discussed and we'll be presenting the whole thing at the General Tenants Meeting on September 16th.
See you then.
