Home Winterization & Ice Melt
Posted on Jan 26th, 2015
As the temperatures get colder, we want to remind all homeowners of a few winter-related topics.
  1. As per our Declaration, please be reminded that all units must be kept at a constant temperature of not less than 60 degrees.  This also applies to vacant units.
  2. As per our Declaration, please be reminded that a unit's water be turned off if the unit will be vacant for more than 48 hours.
  3. Finally, please use only concrete-friendly ice melts.  Sand is the best choice since it has no corrosive properties.  While it will not melt ice, it will add necessary traction to the surface.  Of the commercially available ice melts, Magnesium Chloride products are the safest to use on concrete, but it is still corrosive!!!  It also works at the lowest temperatures... down to -13F.  If you use Magnesium Chloride, please do so sparingly, and only on high-traffic areas.

    Please do NOT use other types of salt (Sodium Chloride, Calcium Chloride, or Potassium Chloride).  Other salt-based ice melts are highly corrosive to concrete, and will cause the concrete to crack and its surface layer to flake.
Stay warm and stay safe!
2014 WBA Annual Meeting Review
Posted on Sep 27th, 2014
The Wharton's Bluff "A" 2014 Annual Meeting was held Friday, September 26.  The 2015 Wharton's Bluff "A" board is as follows (Newly elected designated by an *):
  • President - Michael Potter (*)
  • Vice President - Jim Hall (*)
  • Secretary - Pam Tsimon
  • Treasurer - Christine Rogers
  • Board Member - Tennant Barron
The following noteworthy topics were discussed:
  • The pool will be resurfaced in time for Memorial Day 2015!
  • The townhomes and common buildings will be reappraised for HOA-provided insurance purposes this fall/winter.  We hope this reappraisal will significantly reduce the cost of insurance built into our HOA dues.
  • We ask everyone to please review what you are personally responsible for insuring, and to ensure you have adaquate coverage.  Information, which you can review with you insurance agent, can be found on the Documents page under "Insurance Information". 
  • Our attorney is drafting a Declaration ammendment for community approval to include windows, doors, and potentially other Limited Common Elements in the HOA's insurance responsibilities.  Such an ammendment would require a vote of all homeowners.  These items are currently the responsibility of the homeowner, as per the Declaration.
  • Our property management contract with Wilgus Associates expires the end of 2014.  The board has voted to switch property management companies to SeaScape Property Management effective January 1, 2015.  We thank Veronica for her dedication and friendship, and we recognize that this decision is not a reflection on her.  Veronica has been instrumental in helping to guide this community through several difficult situations, and we will miss her!
