Council asks that ALL OWNERS clean their deck or patio surfaces (no power washing), railings and stairs where applicable. Some Owners have availed themselves to have the cleaning done by Tyson Bull, which will commence this Saturday March 14th 2015. If you are unable to or don’t wish to do the work yourself, you can still be added to the patio cleaning list by calling Sharon Bull at #604-466-9237. Having every Owner take pride in ownership, allows The Colonial to look its best.

THANK YOU TO ALL OWNERS for doing the Organics so efficiently. Council has arranged commencing next week that the Organics to be picked up twice weekly for the next six months. Our new pick up days will be Tuesday and Friday. October 1st 2015 we will revert back to the once a week pickup unless the need calls for it to remain at the twice weekly pickup. The Owners of The Colonial do a great job in recycling, which is good for the planet and great for our pocketbook as well.

Council will be handing out a new phone list for everyone with all our new updated Owners and numbers. A Welcome Package Handout will also be sent to the new Owners to advise them of the various functions that take place here at The Colonial.

Due to the work load that Council has before them it was decided to adjourn at 9:35pm and call for another meeting March 23rd 2015 to complete the paperwork for the AGM. Motion to adjourn by Lisa Le Blanc, seconded by Donna Klein.

Next Meeting March 23rd 2015 at 7pm.
