Tweaked both of the adjustments on each of them. Building 7 turned on immediately with motion with the darker day, while Building 8 did so after the lens was removed and cleaned.

For this we are grateful, however the door still does not fit tightly and has a lot of wiggle which prevents a tight closure. Can this be addressed?10/30/2019Thanks for your response! We looked at it again and did some "tweaking" to the door, hardware, door frame and seals and it works much better. I hope you agree that it functions much better!
10/6/19Complete Requestsbultmanm@hope.edu741 Spyglass HillFront DoorJim & Martie Bultman6167869246Our front door has not been able to be secured ever since the new hardware was installed now several weeks ago. We have been patient thinking that certainly this problem was known at the time of new hardware installation. Quite frankly our front door has been an embarrassment ever since we moved in 31 years ago. It appears as if someone tried to pry the door open. It now must be repaired or replaced ASAP.10/10/2019After a few days between two guys working on rebuilding, sanding and painting, we hope the front door meets your expectations as well as any guests that your may have! We plan on categorizing this work request as "complete" unless you feel more work needs to be completed? Thanks for your patience!

He turned it off before we left. I don't think that is a storage area..10/09/2019Talking to your neighbors, one of them had some kitchen counter work completed. They temporarily stored their kitchen accessories in the water meter closet. It must have been one of the few days that your neighbor had work done. It was explained to them that the closet is a common area for all three unit owners that share the hallway. They understood. The last I checked, there is a straight, clear path directly to the meters. Thanks for the heads up!
9/16/19Complete Requestsvanderdj@yahoo.com765 Spyglass Hillsprinklers not working since JulyDavid Vander Kam6163998433Sprinkler system has not worked since July. We have had to hand water the plants so that they would not die. Can it please be fixed asap.10/11/2019Sprinkler system has been shut off for the season and winterization (blown out) will occur within the next couple weeks. One part of the spring sprinkling start-up process steps is to make sure all sprinklers and electric valves are functioning properly. This is an "automatic step" when starting up the system, therefore this repair request will be considered "complete!" By the way, the Association does not take responsibility of watering plants and/ or flowers planted in pots or in the designated "owner" areas along the garage. If the owner decides to have plants in those areas, they take on the responsibility of watering and fertilizing.
9/12/19Open Requestsjjdek@aol.com735 Sea WatchPaint roof vent pipesJim & Barb DeKruyter2692070671On SeaWatch dr. none of the vent pipes are painted like they are on the other two levels. It would look date setYep... you are correct! Pipes were painted on the middle and upper tiers many years ago. The person that completed the original painting has moved onto a different position (outside of Spyglass.) They did look better, however, with the wind and blowing sands, all the vent pipes on those two tiers need paint again. Painting can only occur on a dry, warm and very calm day (any amount of wind comes over the ridge vent and blows the spray paint everywhere!) Therefore, the only time of the year to complete is the middle of the summer. Additionally, it is also Spyglass procedure not to allow "summer help" to be on the roof for safety and liability concerns. We will keep this repair request "open" but would considered an "improvement".

They mentioned they currently install a "keyed" opener (Knox 3502) that the fire departments use, however, they recommend calling local Township fire Chief. Currently have a call into the Chief, waiting for a reply. Will also pursue with County 911 what they recommend. Van't Hof came out for a service call. Talking to the technician, the manufacturer that makes the "Yelp" detector has a "rejection" rate of almost 50%. (They send back that many to the manufacturer fo replacement.) He ordered us a new one and once received, will replace with current one and will retest. Meanwhile, the "detector" does pick up "other" sounds including the "Yelp" sound. Will close once new part is installed and working.

7/18/19Open Requestsdave.shellenbarger@gmail.com725 Spyglass HillStreet Light Replacement RequestDave Shellenbarger6163998664Our streetlights are in bad shape and need to be replaced with "dark sky" downward reflecting fixtures to provide more effective night time lighting and to improve the appearance of our public areas. The appearance and "curb appeal" of Spyglass is diminished by the worn out, deteriorated condition of the old fixtures and replacement of these very visible necessities of our community is long date setThe current lights are pointed "downward." The top of the light fixture deflects the light downward. As you move closer to the lamp, the brighter the light. Some of the lights are "defected" or blocked away from buildings (decks) so to allow "starry" skies to be more visible. It also prevents light from shining into residents bedroom windows. Also, with an LED bulb they are also very energy efficient! However, your idea will be passed onto the Board for discussion!

Our door and door frame were damaged before we moved in (15 years ago) and need to be replaced, and now we have new latch and lock in a damaged and un-presentable door. Further the new hardware doesn't cover the imprint of the old hardware, further detracting from our guests' first impression when they visit our residence.

This year none of our remotes work until we are nosed into the gate, and twice Kathie's car transmitter has not been detected and she's needed to get out of the car to use the ten key pad. This has occurred in the past and has been corrected each time.07/31/2019With some adjusting of the receiver location (located in guard both) earlier today and playing with an exterior antenna (receiver) extension, the operating distance to open the gate has significantly improved. The gate operators (remote or programmed in visor / rear view mirror) should work much better from a distance. Let me know what you experience? Update: 7/31/19 - after talking to several residents concerning the distance "to open" …….most replied it improved drastically! Request closed

We were in Lansing yesterday and when we returned, the key mechanism was turned from its "6 o'clock position" and would not allow the door to be unlocked with the key. Despite heavy pressure I can't return the lock to its home position.

The location of the current casement windows replaced with new awning windows and opening /closing remote would be ideal. Would eliminate climbing ladder to open/ closing. Many residents along SeaWatch have replaced these exact windows and installed remotes. If interested, please let me know and can obtain costs and reimbursement numbers

6/3/17Complete Requestsjddemottmd@gmail.com745 Spyglass Hillpool shower/bathroom areas need attention now and regularlyJohn DeMott6167960337The pool bathrooms/showers (both men's and women's) should be cleaner. I know that there are times of heavy use during/after which they will be dirty. However, the floors often looks like they need to be hosed down. And the shower walls generally show heavy mold growth. We know mold is difficult to control in a warm moist environment but a thorough cleaning including application of a mold control product like Concrobium, followed by a weekly (or more often if needed) scrub down and reapplication would make a significant difference. This is especially important for people with mold allergies. Our impression based on the appearance of these facilities is that there is not a consistent scheduled cleaning, or if there is, it is not sufficient. I suspect that most residents, including most board members, rarely if ever use those areas, and so few concerns are voiced. However, for those that do, as well as their guests, the status quo is unacceptable. This issue has been raised before but I have not observed a significant change in the situation. As of June 1, when I first used the pool area for the season, the men's shower walls were quite moldy , apparently left over from last season, as there has not been significant time nor humidity for this amount of mold to have already developed this year. So evidently, the shower walls were not cleaned at the end of last season nor prior to the opening of the pool this season. Again, this is unacceptable, and reinforces the impression that cleaning of these facilities is usually an afterthought, often overlooked, and not part of a regular schedule. Once a thorough cleaning has been done with application of Concrobium , maintenance should not take a lot of time. Thank you for your attention to this matter.07/14/2017Immediately after repair request was received, the bathrooms were scrubbed done with hand hard bristle brushes after spraying with mold and mildew remover. will continue to monitor throughout the season repeat the cleaning if necessary. Per board direction, both bathrooms were repainted, cleaned regrouted, and stalls hung from ceiling. Dividers added to bottom of counters.Download

For the first time since our renovation in 2009, in Spring this year we started having water leaking in through the upper edge of our slider door (main room) during rain storms. This happened for a 3rd time a couple of days ago during a rain. Appears to be coming from above the south end of our slider. Dave has made Ron aware of our issue verbally. 11/10/15 - The deck was resealed and areas of "questionable leakage" were caulked. Homeowner did mention that after next rainstorm, it did not leak. Will monitor.

12/05/2015During the rain, the upper deck was having the tile removed and resealed. A strip of deck was "very exposed" during the project. The reseal has been complete and should seal any additional water infiltration. Will continue to monitor for a period prior to closing.

Hi Ron and Bill,

I've already contacted Ron about these repairs/concerns but was reminded in the minutes that I really need to fill out an official repair request.

Ron replaced a cloudy window this spring in my lower level.  I came out in late April to check on things here and discovered that the window was cracked.  I might have thought that my grandkids did it but they hadn't been out here yet. :)  I have no idea how it happened but it needs replacing again.  

Also, when I came out this Spring, I noticed that in my upper level in the left corner facing the lake (on the ceiling) it looked like there was water damage.  It seems to have gotten a little worse over the summer and I think it should be taken care of before winter hits and before it gets any worse.  Ron does know about this but I know he's been extremely busy and hasn't been able to get to it yet.  

Thank you so much for addressing this,  

Helen Fredricks

Please reassess this problem and let us know of the possible solutions. Caulking doesn't seem be to beworking.

The lake facing windows in our living room leaked quite a bit while we were in Florida. It's the same ones I reported in October. It appears to be the casing, not the windows, and came in from the top, by Dryfhouts, then went down our walls onto the floor. In October I think it was just one window, this time it appears to be all three although it's hard to tell because there was a fair bit of water and it may have just pooled and spread.

Also, the 2nd railing going down my steps to the lower level in my condo is coming loose. Could you repair that for me too, please?

I'm assuming you'd like me to use this repair request form for all repairs - even the ones that are not covered by the association?

Thanks so much, Ron!

Attn: Ron & Bill,

Ron, confirming our discussion on July 6th,this is a request for replacement of the exteriorFACEBOARDat the bottom of the "slider"" opening to our deck off the dining area. The paint has been peeling and I decided to scrape it and repaint it as I had done 4 years ago,only to discover that it is soft and contains a number of rotted areas. Iwill probably finish scraping and paint it anyway just to make it look better until it can be replaced. As an afterthought, the garage overhead door jambs on both sides of both overhead doors are also rotted 6 to 10 inches up from the asphalt and this is probably also the case with many of the other condo units. Since our building is going to be painted next year it would not make sense to continue to paint over rotting wood.

There is evidence of the water leak from the satisfactory repaired chimney leak on the ceiling. It needs a cosmitic repair. Every sales agent and prospect pointed itout and Ron is now aware of this situation. I did't think it was a big deal but they do. Also the main support column to the ceiling surface needs to be attended to for cosmetic apprearance.

Last night (8-2-15) it was raining in our bedroom. Rain was coming in from both the windows facing north and west. The greatest amount of water was falling from above the slider facing north, but it didn't appear to be weeping in from or around the slider. It must have been coming from the unit above in some manner.

Also, there must be a bad sprinkler head that is supposed to cover the plantings to the north of our driveway. Most of the shasta daisys are totally wilted as well as other plants.

Finally, we still hope there can be something done to improve the look of the new sidewalk and driveway. Both look very chalky; frankly the old sidewalk looked much bette, and the driveway is still discolored due to the work done on the sidewalk.

Thank you for your attention to these matters; I'm sure you are extremely busy these days.
