The cost to replace the electrical busducts to electrical cables at Block A high zones 1 & 2 is RM90,640.00 quoted by Jaya Tech Engineering Service Sdn Bhd (Jaya Tech).

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.

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.

Proposed Retractable Stainless Steel Gate At The Guard House Entrance

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.

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.   

Next Meeting 

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.
