Ballot results regarding House Rule 10

posted Jul 22, 2014, 11:58 PM by Liz SN

There had been on-going confusion as to House Rule #10 that prohibits pets to be kept on the lanai or balcony. This confusion was due in large part to the fact that this existing rule was simply not enforced, and residents became accustomed to housing their pet on the lanai. 

As enforcement continued, some residents asked if this issue could be put before the HOA at large for a vote. The ballot that was sent out last month. Generally, it is the sole responsibility of the Board of Directors to adopt or amend house rules for the community; however, the Board thought it would be good to gauge the direction of the HOA at large on this issue with the understanding that the Board maintained the right of approval.

Here are the results of the poll:

1. Ballots sent out: 192
2. Ballots returned by the July 15 deadline: 26 (this represents only 14% of unit owners)
3. Out of the 26 ballots:
a. 18 voted NO PETS allowed on lanais (70% of ballots returned).
b. 8 voted FOR PETS to be allowed on lanais. (30%) of ballots returned)

To be clear, House Rule #10 is in full effect and prohibits pets on the lanai or balcony. Please check our House Rules for further clarification.

The Board thanks every homeowner who submitted their vote and hopes that they and every unit owner or resident continues to support the Board with suggestions to improve the Las Palmas community. 

Residents and owners are always encouraged to submit their thoughts and concerns and to participate in their HOA. Board meetings are held at 6 p.m. the last Tuesday of each month at the REMAX office in Hagåtña.

The issue regarding pets in the lanai was once again discussed and the HOA has agreed to issue a ballot to the Homeowners to vote on whether or not they agree to allow pets in their lanai. The Ballot will be sent to all owners at a later date and will need to be sent back to the Property Manager for tally. 

House rule regarding pets on lanais

posted Feb 28, 2014, 1:37 AM by Liz SN   [ updated May 13, 2014, 1:50 PM ]

After much consideration and discussion, the Board has decided to uphold House Rule #10, stating pets are not allowed to be housed on lanais. At this time, the Board has advised G4S to continue issuing notices to units with pets in the lanais effective March 15. Each notice issued will incur an immediate $35 penalty, unless otherwise noted by the Property Manager. 

Penalties were not issued after Dec. 15, 2013, while the Board deliberated the matter. If you received notice prior to Dec. 15, please contact the Property Manager to get your balance and submit payment. Follow-up notices will be sent to owners with balances.

Pets on Lanais

posted Sep 7, 2013, 4:00 PM by Kenneth Limtiaco   [ updated May 15, 2014, 1:39 AM by Liz SN ]

September 8, 2013: 

Recently we have encountered several residents housing their pets on their lanais.  Please note that this is NOT ALLOWED as per our house rules.  Whether the resident has added chain link to their lanai gate, has the pet tied up or housed in a kennel or other cage...pets on lanais are NOT ALLOWED and are subject to daily fine (to the unit owner) of $35.00 per day.

If you have any questions please contact our property manager.
