BOARD MINUTES
May 15, 2017
Board Members Present: Elizabeth Werth, Joan Flewelling, Cynthia Townes, Alysha Gonsalves, Katherine Boucher, Richard Barrett
Absent: Sam Galzerano
Also: Steven Miller, Property Manager
Open Discussion/Resident Input: Presentation by Nancy Eaton, 2 F, regarding problem with brown staining of ceiling on Main floor and below this area, on the lower level, a crack half of the way down of the wall. These occurred this past winter. A long discussion took place to better understand the extent of the problem and possible cause. Steve suggested a plan to better get an explanation of the cause would be to have a contractor open up the lower level wall where the crack is and evaluate. Steve offered to send Nancy the contact information for three contractors for her to review, but she is free to choose anyone she wishes. This work would be done at her expense. Once that information is obtained, further discussion can occur to determine how to correct the problem.
