General Manager's Newsletter- SEPTEMBER 2020

It seems like the world is on a continuous pause waiting for COVID-19 to retreat and for a vaccine to be created, tested, and made available for use. Summer vacation plans have transitioned to fall plans and they are looking iffy. Staying local and safe is the best practice but getting old, fast. A trip to the Village is a road trip for me and going over the bridge, just felt so strange. Still, we are less than 100 days until the election and political signs are popping up around the Cays and there is talk about how voting will be accomplished and how long it will take to count the ballots. Crazy times indeed!
The CCHOA is busier than ever as the new fiscal year projects are getting started and ongoing projects are progressing or being completed. In Kingston, the village renovation continues with Building 4 being painted and completed and with work ongoing at Buildings 3, 5, and 6. The end is in sight with an estimated project completion date of mid-October. The other major renovation project in Kingston, selected dock replacement and complete water/electrical system replacement, is finally permitted after a two-year process. Repairs are set to commence in mid-August and should be well underway by the time you read this.
The upgrade of the HOA Admin Complex restrooms is complete with a fresh new look courtesy of Brandalyn Dennis (Kingston Owner) and her designing talents. A complete exterior repaint of 37 homes in Port Royale has commenced and a trim cycle painting of Phase 4 homes is being planned in Jamaica Village. Clubhouse and restroom renovations are being planned/designed for the Bahama/Antigua pool restrooms and the Trinidad/Kingston clubhouse and restrooms. Lastly, we are patiently waiting for new weather-based irrigation controllers to be delivered and installed throughout the Cays as part of a three-year irrigation upgrade. They are delayed due to COVID.
There is an update to last month’s article on the date for the Annual meeting which has shifted to September 10, 2020 to align with the new voting rules timeline and notification requirements. The meeting will be held as a video teleconference due to COVID and we look forward to providing the latest on the state of our HOA.
Your HOA Staff is undergoing a significant reorganization as accounting services are being outsourced to Walters Management to take advantage of increased technology and efficiency. Ongoing accounting services will be handled through a coordinated process involving Staff and offsite accounting professionals. Owners should only see slight changes as we shift to a new bank for the HOA Operating account and have new owner account numbers linked to the previous account numbers. Owners will still be able to drop off payments at the office or send them directly to the new bank for processing and crediting to their account. Coupons will also still be available although we will be encouraging owners to transition to automatic payments and give up coupons in favor of monthly statements, paper or electronic.
