The House Rules have been extracted from the By-Laws of Park Towers Condominium Association. They have been newly categorized so that information may be located
easily, particularly that needed by new owners or tenants.
Please familiarize yourself with house rules & check back often for ready reference. If you have questions reagrding any of them, please drop a note in the mail
slot of our office on the second floor, call our Building Managers or send us a note throug the website.
GARBAGE AND TRASH DISPOSAL
1. Most kitchens are equipped with garbage disposal units which should be used for "wet" garbage: table scraps, vegetable peelings, etc. Water should be allowed to run
while the disposal unit is operating and for 30 seconds afterward. NO COFFEE GROUNDS. The on/off switch is under the sink and reset button is located on the side
of the unit. Wet garbage that cannot be accommodated in the disposal device must be placed in the large dumpster at the rear of the building and in no other receptacle.
RECYCLING OF PLASTICS, GLASS, CANS, AND NEWSPAPERS is now in effect. All glass and plastic items must be thoroughly rinsed before being taken from your premises.
Recycling bins are clearly marked and are found in the rear lot (White Dumpster)
2. DISPOSAL OF LARGE ITEMS OR FURNITURE
Packing cases or large corrugated cartons or containers must be dismantled before being placed in outside dumpster. It is advisable, when buying new
appliances, to arrange with the dealer for removal of packing cases, along with items being replaced. Our refuse collector charges for removal of such items and unit owners are responsible for the
cost. In the case of installation or remodeling (carpet, cabinets, etc.), if use of an extra dumpster is required, cost must be borne by the unit owner. Again, this can often be avoided by making
prior arrangements with your vendor, installer or contractor. NO FURNITURE is to be discarded on the premises or in the dumpster area. Cost of its removal by our collector is the responsibility of
the unit owner and prior arrangements must be made with the management.
FIRE ALARM SYSTEM
Our fire alarm/smoke detector system has been upgraded in line with the fire code of the State of Connecticut which calls for such
devices to be in each unit and wired through the electric system. The presence of smoke in any common area will activate a 90 decibel alarm in every unit. Since the system is not connected to
the Fire Department switchboard, a call to them is necessary - DIAL 911.
IN THE EVENT OF SUCH AN ALARM, OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURE
- DO NOT USE THE ELEVATOR.
- Exit via the stairwell nearest to your unit, taking keys with you.
- As an added safety measure a "key safe" is mounted on the outside of the building. This can be opened ONLY by Fire Department personnel to obtain a key that will permit them to gain quick access
to the building. Residents who feel the need for special assistance in such an emergency may place keys labeled with their unit numbers in this box as well
Battery powered emergency lights, located in halls, stairwells, and garage, will provide light only for several hours.
Therefore, in the event of prolonged power outages, residents are advised to keep a supply of emergency candles and at least one heavy duty
flashlight. It would also be practical to carry a flashlight in your car in the event of arriving home to find such a situation has occurred.
AUTHORITY OF BOARD OF DIRECTORS
The Park Towers Condominium Association Board of Directors shall have the power to make such rules and regulations as may be necessary
for the safety, care, comfort and cleanliness of the premises and convenience of the residents and shall have the right to bring law suits to enforce the rules and regulations promulgated
by the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors shall further have the right to levy fines for violations of these rules/regulations, provided that the fine
for a single violation may not, under any circumstances, exceed $25.00. For each day that a violation continues after notice, it shall be
considered a separate violation.
Any fine becomes a common charge levied against the particular unit owner involved and collection may be enforced by the Board of
Directors in the same manner as the collection of common charges.
