Annual Meeting, Call for Board Candidates
The Windgate II Condominium Association annual meeting and election of board members is Thursday, Oct 18, at 7 pm at Fairlington Community Center, Room 118 (parking is limited due to construction -- be prepared to park on the street). There are 3 vacancies on the board: 2 two-year positions and 1 one-year position. Please consider joining the board (here's the application for candidacy form). Also, 35% of owners must attend the meeting or represented by proxy to reach a quorum. Please submit your proxy even if you plan to attend the meeting. Put it in the drop box at the pool house; email it to meetingprep.dcmetro@fsresidential.com, or tape it to your front door by noon Thursday. Print the proxy form.
Chimney Crowns
Katchmark is currently sealing chimney crowns. Residents will receive a notice on their front door with the estimated date for work on their unit. The activity requires access to patios so that tarps may be put down to catch any falling sealant, which can stain patio surfaces. Leave your patio gate unlocked so the tarp can be put down. Also, Katchmark is offering owners discounted pricing on chimney caps.
Doggie Etiquette
Dog owners -- as a consideration to other residents, whenever possible, please keep your dog from using the areas close to the front of units to do their “business”; likewise, for new/young plantings and sod.
Halloween Party?
If there is enough interest and residents who are willing to help, the association will host a Halloween party at the gazebo on Sunday afternoon, Oct 28. This would be a joint Windgate II and III event and would be for children and adults. Please contact a board member or send an email to pwalter-wg2@outlook.com to confirm interest and to volunteer.
Late Monthly Condo Fees
Monthly condo fee payments are due on the first day of the month. If payment is received later than the 15th of the month, a late fee of $50 is charged; plus, owners are charged $10 and postage for the late payment letter as well as interest. Late payment letters are sent monthly and associated fees will continue to accumulate until the condo fee and all late fees are paid.
Keep Pool Passes
The pool closed for the season Sept 16 with our annual pooch paddle (see photos). Thanks to the volunteers who helped with planning, logistics, and keeping a watchful eye on all the activity.
 
Keep your pool passes. Next year, you will receive a 2019 sticker to put on your plastic pool pass card. There is a replacement fee if your resident pool pass card is lost, stolen, or discarded, so keep your pool passes in a place where you can find them next year. Also, do not discard any 1-day guest passes you purchased this year; they do not expire. You may discard the 2018 complimentary blue guest pass punch card. You will be receive a new punch card in 2019 (the 2018 card will not be honored).
New Bus to Ballston?
ART may add a new bus route to between Shirlington & Ballston. They're asking for feedback, which will be gathered at 2 public meetings (Oct 9 & 11) and through an online survey. Read more.
Pooch Paddle Photos
There were lots of dogs, kids and splashing at the Sep 16 pooch paddle. See photos.
Contractors & Moving Companies
The board approved new rules that contractors and moving companies must follow when working at Windgate II. The rules aim to minimize the inconvenience -- and sometimes damage -- that can be caused by contractors and companies working for a resident. Residents are responsible for providing a copy of these rules to contractors and moving companies before work beings. Unit owners will be billed for repairs of any landscaping or property damage caused by a tenant’s contractor. The hours that contractors may work on the property: 8 am - 6 pm weekdays, 10 am - 4 pm weekends, holidays not allowed.
