Proposed Levy increase
The proposed levy increase of R 600 was approved. The small increase in levy was a based on the healthy reserve balance of R 103,607.00. Bakersfield Residence Association would have a small running loss in 2012.
All agreed to new levy increase effective 1 June 2012.
On the issue of finance, Niqui was thanked for her service.
RSS Contract Revision
RSS put forward a number of proposals for the mimic panic button solution which were all rejected by the commitee as they were extremely high and carried an additional cost per unit monthly. RSS eventually reviced their entire offering to Bakersfield and were able to reduce certain costs so the mimic panic button would only cost in the region of R500 monthly for the entire complex.
All agreed that the new contract could be approved.
Guards need to be fully trained on how to deal with an alert from the mimic panic button.

All agreed that the general garden maintenance could continue be covered by the levy.
