KAIMALA MARINA NEWSLETTER - July 2020
We have had a recent addition to the Board of Directors, its Nicolas Ching in unit #803; he is a licensed contractor and has helped by looking over contracts for us at earlier Board meetings. And although not a new Board member, Mike Nadeau in unit #321 was elected to the Board President position. We look forward to working with both.
With the current COVID 19 rules in place, please be advised that the Pool and BBQ Areas are OPEN for the exclusive use of REGISTERED RESIDENTS ONLY. This means that guests can’t use the pool area until further notice. The Recreation Center and Restrooms will remain CLOSED. Family members and residents from the same unit only may use the hot tub together. Signs have been posted and we are taking the threat of COVID19 seriously by reducing the risk to our residents. We realize that there is no 100% assurance that these measures will stop anyone from getting the virus, but are designed to reduce the risk until such time that COVID19 is no longer the threat it is today.
NEW Weber Genesis gas grills have been received, and they will be installed shortly. Through weekly maintenance, we have had the current set of Weber grills for almost 8 years. We need your help to make these last another 8 years. PLEASE clean the grill
after you use it. This will help reduce wear and tear and prolong the life of our grills and will ensure that the person using the grill after you will have an enjoyable grilling experience.
We encourage you to visit our Website at kaimalamarina.org and leave us your email; this is so we may reach out to you with newsletter items, updates around the property and emergency notifications.
Property Management's Corner
Summer is here and the grounds are alive with kids. For safety concerns, bikes, skateboards, and ball playing are not allowed here. Also, please watch your children while they are playing not just for safety, but to make sure damages to property don’t occur. We occasionally have problems with broken lights or destroyed trees and shrubs where children unintentionally damage the property. We want to mitigate costs for replacing these items and your assistance watching your kids is greatly appreciated. Additionally, please be careful driving in and out of the property, observe the 5-mph rule, there are small children present and aren’t necessarily paying attention to vehicles entering or leaving.
There is an added benefit to residents that you may not be aware of; we have access to a wonderful park within walking distance of our units; we share a nicely maintained park next to the Esplanade that you can enjoy with your family. Follow the fence between us and the Esplanade and use your Pool key for access. Dogs are allowed but must be kept on leashes.
And on the issue of Dogs, we ask that if you have a dog, please pick up after it. Be considerate of your neighbors since no one wants to see, smell or worse, step in a mess that someone left behind. Parents and Grandparents, please make sure that if you are sending kids out with the dog, have them take bags just in case they need to pick up after the dog. Lastly, it goes without saying, ALL DOGS MUST BE LEASHED.
Bulky Item Pickup is available. The proper way to dispose of your unwanted large items can be accessed on your computer. Arrangements to pick up your bulky items can be made online at Opala.org . Give it a look to schedule beds, TVs, water heaters, or anything that USED to be left on the curb. Click on the schedule a pickup and they will give you a date with options.
Aloha until next time.

Living in Hawaii, we’re used to preparing for all kinds of potential — hurricanes, tsunamis, ﬂoods, etc. — so this potential challenge should be no diﬀerent! Here is some feedback from the experts that may help.
