Bill Logan will follow up on trash, City of Seattle Trash Line 206-684-7587

Denali - Undesirable activity around building. Monitor it. Call non-emergency police number 206-625-5011
Have a description of the people you see. Everyone (let your tenants know) should pitch in to promptly clean up cigarette butts, syringe caps and general trash on around the building to help discourage more undesirable activity from trespassers.

Sean & Stan - Common Lighting. Lights outside are on. Swap in led lights
Daylight switch - Easton - more the 2 exterior - carriage light

Deb - Interior Paint. Estimates - Meghan and Deborah to research

Meghan - Rear staircase repair. Investigate estimate for other landing (approx $4k) Estimate for awnings? Maybe have them give estimate on front door as well McLeod construction

Denali - first noticed it end of April. The stain appears to originate from the north wall, near the NW corner. Just a stain for now, will continue to monitor

Chris - Brick work. South side the worst - repair chimney north wall
$29K estimate Floating bricks. Would need to chat with Reed Wright about chimney and venting. Reed Wright has confirmed that the boiler does vent through the Chimney.

Charley - Boiler. Could value be added with other modes of heat What is the back-up plan? Variable refrigerant system - like a ductless heat pump except for whole building. Lexi has experience in boiler
Attend to the pump Denali has noticed squeeking noise in pipes - may be condensate pump
E&O insurance - liability for HOA Board – Actually called D&O insurance and we are covered.
Ask insurance agent - Charley will investigate – Yes, we are covered under D&O insurance
Underinsured currently

Send insurance info to Lisa Assess what it would take to be more insured - Bill
