On Wednesday, January 13th, a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Hamptons Homeowners Association was held at the offices of Mariani Landscaping. Board members Dona Murphy, Suzanne Belinky, Michael Lind; and Sarah McMaster of McMaster Drake property management were present. 5 residents representing 5 units were also in attendance.
The 2016 budget was ratified. Other topics discussed were assessment arrears, front entry design and signage, snow removal, FHA certification, and the Neighborhood Watch.
The business meeting concluded and the floor was opened to homeowner Q & A.
This update is provided as a summary only. Meeting minutes to be submitted by Dona Murphy for Karen Hunken, Board Secretary.
Thank you to all the homeowners who attended. See "Upcoming Events" for information on the next Board meeting - we welcome and encourage homeowners to attend.
Parking - Snow Removal 
Remember that it is your responsibility as a resident (whether owner or renter) to ensure that guests/visitors, service workers, tradespeople, etc. for your unit are parked only in approved locations.  If you're unsure about the right places to park, see the parking map in "Community Info" (under Welcome) or "Documents" (under Members) on the home page. This map has been updated to highlight permitted parking areas.
However, when snow/ice is expected, no vehicle, whether parked in an approved location or not, except for emergency vehicles, may be parked on the streets. For details including potential fines for violation and vehicle removal procedures, please see page 8 of the Rules and Regulations, which can be found in "Community Info" (under Welcome) or "Documents" (under Members) on the Home page.
Change of Garbage Collection Services - Old Receptacles
We are aware that due to the holidays, some of you may not have returned your old garbage collection receptacles. We are making arrangements with Advanced Disposal (our former service provider) to pick up their remaining regular waste and recycling receptacles. Please call or e-mail McMaster Drake as soon as possible to have your unit added to the list for pickup of the old receptacles. There is no benefit to retaining them as extras since the new provider will only handle their own receptacles. Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience of scheduling the change over the holidays, which was determined by the start/end dates of our contracts.
As a reminder, our regularly scheduled day for garbage pickup remains Friday (other than holiday rescheduling). Bins may be placed outside for pickup after 6:00 pm on the night before the day designated for garbage collection. They must be returned inside your garage/unit at the end of the day of pick-up. 
Landscape Committee
Interested volunteers can find the committee charter and the volunteer form in the "Documents" section of the website. The form can be completed and submitted by attaching it to an e-mail using the "Contact Us" feature here on the community website, or the form can be faxed or mailed to McMaster Drake Management.
