Caryle Towers Condominiums Board of Directors and Management Team held the April 2020 meeting via teleconference. Here are the Board actions.

Due to the novel coronavirus and social distancing orders, the Board of Directors and Management Team held the meeting via teleconference. Please note that all actions will be ratified at the next open meeting.

  • The Board unanimously accepted the proposal by Commercial Waterproofing Inc., in the amount of $376,905 to perform exterior maintenance to the South Building. Additionally, the Board unanimously approved the purchase of a Payment & Performance Bond at a cost of $7,600, bringing the total project cost to $384,505. Commencement of the project is contingent on the duration of the Virginia Governor’s “Stay at Home” Executive Order.

A unanimous approval for Overhead Door’s annual preventative maintenance contract in the amount of $4,272 was also accepted. Installation of the garage doors is contingent on the Virginia Governor’s “Stay at Home” Executive Order.
  • The Board voted unanimously to approve the date for the 2020 Annual Meeting & tentative timeline. The Annual Meeting and Election is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at 7:00pm in the Carlyle Room. This date may change, depending on whether the Governor’s “Stay at Home” Executive Order is extended. President Binker asked that Management and the Election Committee Chair discuss an alternative in the event that we cannot hold a meeting.

He noted that volunteers may wish to call and/or email residents to ensure they respond.
