We survived a potentially devastating event with the passing of Hurricane Matthew. Some unit owners called our insurance agent directly to report minor damages and ask how it will be taken care of. We’d like to take this opportunity to explain how claims are resolved based on the Verbiage of our Master Deed and its latest amendment which helps to define everyone’s responsibilities.

Recently, your Board sent an opinion survey to all Owners asking whether you would approve having pets in our building. The intent of the survey was to inform the Board as to whether the current rule banning pets in the Fort Sumter House residences should remain. The results of the survey indicate that 34% of Owners approve having pets in the building, while 52% disapprove (14% did not respond).

What would you like to accomplish if elected to the Board? These topics are only examples.
