The architect is in progress to resubmit the renovation plan to Majlis Perbandaran Bentong for approval.
For the fit-out works, received quotations from 3 contractors and their cost ranges from RM158K to RM184K as per the summary of quotations attached. The Committee decided to interview contractors Ding Foong (M) Sdn Bhd and ICraye Concept on their costings and construction details before award.

Committee agreed to this proposed canopy however, as it will be built at the public road, it was decided to obtain approval from the local authority before proceeding with this installation. The cost to install stainless steel structure will be examined and Building Manager to act accordingly.
Rental Of PPAM’s Units
The tenant of D/02-C took over the unit on 18/05/2020 and tenancy will commence as from the same date. As this tenant was recommended by Mr. KB Woo, who had also recommended other tenants to us, proposed to pay him RM2,400 being recommendation fee. For info, the monthly rental of this unit is RM2,800 and the tenancy agreement is being prepared by us. Committee agreed to this proposal.

Proposed Retractable Stainless Steel Gate At The Guard House Entrance
Received a quote from contractor, Tren Industries Sdn Bhd and the details are tabled as below : –

Additional costs are necessary to install electrical supply to the proposed gate and to level the uneven road, the proposed gate requires a level surface to operate smoothly, in front of the Guard House including a monsoon drain. In view of the additional works/costs for the above installation, Committee decided to KIV this installation.

Proposed Replacement Of Security Guard Tour System
The present 2 units handheld devices of the electronic guard tour system are faulty and these devices had been repaired on several occasions. Furthermore, the software is also giving some problems. One of the devices is beyond repair and a new device costs RM1,900. In view of the frequent breakdown of these devices incurring running costs, proposed to replace the entire system. Based on this, obtained 2 quotations for a new system and they are tabulated as below: –
|No.||Description/Contractor||P Merit Eng (RM)||LNLS Solutions (RM)|

Maxis Broadband’s Claim For Refund Of Security Deposit
Maxis BroadBand Sdn Bhd (Maxis) wrote to us to request for the refund of their security deposit with respect to the termination of the agreement in Y2012, on the usage of room/space for the operation of their tele-communication system in Block A. Committee decided not to entertain Maxis on this matter as they could not produce a copy of the tenancy agreement and the 6-year limit of the Limitations Act 1953 has expired.
Shortfall Service Charges & Contribution To The Sinking Fund Of 2 Units
It was noted that 2 units services charges and contribution to the sinking fund were incorrectly calculated and billed the owners from Y2017. This occurred when the calculation of the services charges and contribution to the sinking fund were changed from square feet to share units. This resulted in shortfall of charges and sinking fund from these 2 units.
We have written to both the units’ owners and one of the owners argued that it is not fair to charge this shortfall now as it was our mistake made in Y2017. Furthermore, we had confirmed that the calculation was correct when this said owner enquired in the same year. As the other owner did not object to paying the shortfall, the Committee decided to proceed to charge the shortfall to both the owners and submit to the Tribunal if any owners failed to pay the shortfall.
Management Staff Monthly KPI Report
One of Committee members suggested to include in our monthly meeting the Key Performance Index (KPI) of the management staff and Building Manager to act accordingly.
Proposed 10th AGM
Committee decided to hold the 10th AGM on 25/07/2020(Sat) in accordance to the SOP for prevention of Covid-19.
Owners’ Emergency Contact Person
Committee decided that in view of the numerous owners who are quite elderly, it would be prudent to keep a record of the owners’ contact person(s) for liaison during emergencies. Building Manager will issue a notice on this matter for all owners to revert.
The next Management Committee meeting will be held on 25th July 2020 (Sat) immediately after the 10th Annual General Meeting at Meeting Room, Ground Floor, Block B, Mawar Apartments. The meeting ended at 4.00 p.m.
