Moles moved to pre-pay Green Point Consulting, LLC for the 2018 Grounds Care at a discount of 5%. The discount is $1,859.05. Heist seconded. The Board would like this to be approved annually, if offered.
Instant Alert System
The Instant Alert System was activated on January 10, 2018. As of the January Board meeting, approximately 174 Members have signed up.
Georgia Vroman asked if Highlands would consider purchasing carbon monoxide detectors for the basements (furnace). Nanette said it would need to be on the main floor by a vent. She also said that other properties have had problems with false alarms so Highlands has not pursued it.
