The Trustees will review the owner’s statement and will proceed to impose a penalty, submit a warning or agree that no further action be taken.

35..4 If the owner or occupier persists in that particular conduct or in contravention of that particular rule, the Trustees, by majority vote, may impose a penalty upon the owner for the first offence and a subsequent penalty for every identical offence thereafter, the sum of which shall be at the Trustees’ discretion, and shall be added to the amount of the next contribution payable by the owner.

35..5 The owner shall have the right to appeal the penalty, in writing, within seven (7) days from receiving their levy account. The Trustees will review the appeal and will either uphold the appeal, reverse the penalty or confirm that the penalty stands.

35.6 The Trustees may, from time to time, determine the amount of the initial and subsequent penalties, which amounts may vary from offence to offence. In the absence of a determination, a maximum penalty of three (3) times the monthly levy may be imposed as an initial penalty and a further maximum penalty of five (5) times the monthly levy may be imposed as a subsequent penalty.

35.7 Any penalty imposed may, if it is not paid with the next contribution from the owner, be subject to interest at the rate as applicable to arrear levy contributions, and subject to the recovery of attorney and own client costs and expenses in the case that this must be handed over to attorneys for collection.

35.9 If the Trustees and owners are unable to reach an agreement, either party shall have the right to refer the matter to the Community Scheme’s Ombud Service.

 

Dear Owner

 

This is a reminder to please urgently cast your vote via e-mail for a Special Resolution to be passed to add a rule for penalties and breaching of the rules. 

 

An e-mail was sent by Leigh-Ann Cullen on 26 July 2018 at 16:55, whereby owners were requested to vote by close of business today, 10 August 2018. To date we have only received feedback from 20% of owners and urgently require the rest of you to respond to the e-mails. A huge thank you to those owners who have responded so far.

 

As explained in the e-mail sent we obtained unanimous agreement from the owner present at the recent SAGM for a Special Resolution to be passed to create a conduct rule. We did not have the quorum at the SAGM to have the resolution passed at the meeting and have therefore asked that all owners vote via round robin.

 

Please see the below resolution that was sent via e-mail whereby the proposed rules have been outlined. Please urgently respond to the e-mail from Leigh-Ann, leigh@propertyexponents.co.za and indicate if you are for or against the resolution.

 

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

Owners are encouraged to review the draft minutes of the Special Annual General Meeting held on 18th July 2018.

A PDF copy of the minutes can be downloaded from here.

Any queries or corrections can be forwarded by email to the Portfolio Manager.

Thank you.

We surveyed the community about damp in the building in 2014, and about web and internet services in 2016.

Now that these things have been dealt with, this time we have a general survey about life and  work in the building. If you do not agree that the damp and internet services are dealt with you can tell us in this survey!

We need this information if we are to properly prioritise our management efforts in the coming year. 

Please follow this link - it takes you to the Google form that collects your responses. 

If you are anxious about clicking links in emails (you should be!) then you can access the form from the front page of the web site: https://www.mutualheights.net. If you have any queries you can always contact us by email at info@mutualheights.net, or by phone on +27 21 465 6377.

Because of availability, and because of resolutions that need preparation, the AGM could not be held at the first-chosen date.

Owners:  Please re-diarise this date and make every effort to attend.  Important issues to be discussed this year include:

All this, as well as the usual discussion of budgets, routine maintenance and services. If you are an owner you need to be there, or send in the proxy form that you will receive. .

Tenants:  Please watch out for the survey, it will be posted under doors as well as on the web site - this will be your opportunity to say what you want to say.abuot living in Mutual Heights.

This does NOT affect internet services provided by Telkom via your land line (if you have one), and it does NOT affect services provided on the new fibre infrastructure. Nor does it affect any other specific services that Dynacomm have provided to individual owners. It is the service provided via the RJ45 (ethernet) network socket that you have in your apartment.

If you have ideas for how the community can use the old CAT-5 cable network infrastructure that is installed in the building to supported this service, do let us know.

The latest chart

The latest chart shows that the level of demand is steady:

Water usage to 23 March 2018 is steady at about 14,000 litres per day

 

Invitation to bid for a store room

A range of store room spaces have become available. They comprise, in order of size:

Store room number Door number Size (Square metres)
S6 (Empty A/C Room) 15
S9 16 8
S18 9 5
S19 10 4
S20 11 4
S23 6 4
S14 15 4
S15 14 4
S16 13 4
S31 1 4
S32 2 3
S33 3 3
S25 4 2

Notes:

Submit your bid by logging on with your email address and password (you need to be registered as a web site user), and then go to this page, in order to bid a monthly rental, in Rands.

The first bidding period will conclude at 17h00 on Friday 30th March.

If you make multiple bids for the same store room, only the final bid will be considered.

New log in arrangements

The log in and security arrangements for the Mutual Heights web site have changed. If you have been using the web site interactively, to manage your visitors, or to submit requests for maintenance and so on, your previous log in credentials will no longer work.

To get started, if you are a 'known person' at Mutual Heights (i.e. your email address is already on file at the office) you can go straight to the 'Register' page and enter the known email address and a password of your choosing (at least six characters long). That will allow you to log in and your full user options will appear in the menu above, at the left, somewhat like this:

If you have problems

If your email address is not yet on file at the office, you can request to 'Join the community'.  In the event of any other difficulty, please contact us. This is a major update of the web site, affecting the underlying data structures and the security and functionality, so it is possible that there will be problems.

Mutual Heights email addresses

One further upgrade has been possible - we now have email facilities at mutualheights.info (previously we were constrained to using the old email service at mutualheights.net) - so you may expect that there will be new email addresses for the chairperson, the concierge and others solely concerned with Mutual Heights. However,  info@mutualheights.net will continue to receive emails for the time being. 

The trend is UP

There is no room for complacency. Until the winter rains refill the dams we are still facing the possibility of serious problems next year, and into the future. Your reporter drove past Theewaterskloof over the weekend and you really do have to see the very small volume of water that is left, and the bulldozers trying to make accessible the small isolated pools that remain, to understand that this really is a serious problem.  No, he did not take a photograph, it was just too depressing.

The Water Usage trend is down

With the problems of 7th February now lost in our history, the trend is now clearly down.

The trend is now down

Let's keep it that way. We can do better if our highest users were to finally understand the seriousness of the situation. 

The highest users

Look at the distribution across our highest water users:

We have added a scale based on the 50 litre allowance according to the number of people involved.  In the four and a half days of March so far, that would be 450 litres for two people.  So how can anyone justify using the allowance for almost 14 people? Or for six? Or for eight? 

Yes, we are in contact with the high water users.  We still await any ideas from the community that will help us apply appropriate pressure ...

Road Closures for the Cycle Tour

The annual Cape Town Cycle Tour will take place on Sunday, 11 March 2018. This iconic event attracts thousands of cyclists to the beautiful city of Cape Town to take part in this 109km road cycling event which holds the title of being the “World’s Largest Timed Cycle Race”.

In August last year, an announcement by the Cape Town Cycle Tour Trust, organisers of this event, confirmed the decision to move the start of the race in 2018 from Hertzog Boulevard to the Grand Parade precinct in Cape Town CBD. In order to ensure the safety of the cyclists and general public, various road closures will be implemented for this event the day prior to (minimal closures) as well as on event day.

The web site - a quick 'Heads up'

The development of the web site has led to three different ways to log onto the web site, according to you being an owner, an administrator, or just an interested person.  We are going to rationalise this over the next few days (it's quite complicated!) so if you experience any difficulty do please be patient.  Thank you.  All comments and suggestions are welcome.

Water usage is steady

Water usage is steady at just under 15 000 litres per month

We are averaging just under 15 000 litres of water per day - that is about the allowance for 1,6 people per apartment, based on the number of apartments that we have, so most of us can hold our heads high.  However, some people clearly do not understand the seriousness of the problem. 

The trend may be steady;  but we do have excessively high usage in some apartments, and we should be able to get this down.

We have some HIGH users of water

Look at this graph:

Here are the top users of water in the building

The top water user has consumed over 14 000 litres of water in the first 26 days of February - that is the allowance for about ELEVEN people. For two people, at 50 litres per day, the allowance would be 2 600 litres over the month so far, but 50 litres is your allowance for the whole day, wherever you are, and whatever you are doing. Hence, all of the users that you can see in the graph are well over the allowance

We are watching

Please be assured that we are monitoring the usage on a daily basis, and we are informing people in the worst cases.  Trustees have agreed that there will be penalties for excessive use, so if you are one of the offenders please pull your socks up and turn your taps off.  

Any ideas?

Anyone with ideas for continuing and aggressive management of the water usage, please let us know.

Day Zero moves again

It was announced this week that Day Zero has moved to July.  This is mainly because demand has been successfully reduced, and it is critically important to keep it low, and reduce it futher if at all possible.

Our water usage is trending UP

This is your weekly notice reporting on OUR water usage. There was a transitory problem with one of the apartments that is currently in refurbishment (on Wednesday 7th February) which has distorted the numbers, but even allowing for that, we are still trending upwards. Please continue to take great care not to waste water, and to routinely use MUCH less than you would normally do.

Daily figures for the three weeks to 18th February

What are we doing about it?

We are installing 7,000 litres of storage capacity to harvest the ground water from the bottom of the building, that would normally be pumped away down the drain.  It will be available as non-potable water. 

Any suggestions?

Any water-saving ideas that can be shared with the community will be welcomed.  One resident has put the coffee plunger on one side and now uses coffee filters, to save the water needed to rinse out the plunger.  Are you that serious about saving water?

We have achieved another useful milestone in the development of the web site.  Any individual interested in receiving important community notices by email can now register by providing their contact details, and then manage their profile securely, online. Requests can be submitted from our front page:

Download pictures to see this image

If you have not done so, please click on the image and register for notices

More than 60 individuals have already registered. The profile includes the choice to receive notices or not, and will be developed further as the functionality of this web site develops. [Apologies to those who received an email with a link to a profile that did not work - we have re-issued all the messages]

The motivation to gather and manage this data is based in the need to communicate with our community much more effectively, especially during periods of difficulty (such as the Day Zero water emergency) and considering the possibility of emergencies in the Cape Town CBD. 

We are open to comments and suggestions. Please talk to us

Please read and respond

Trustees at Mutual Heights have been concerned that as Day Zero approaches (or in the event of any other emergency) it is not possible to communicate quickly and comprehensively with the community.  It has therefore been agreed that the community web site shall have a means to broadcast notices to all the people that we have 'on file'.

The first step is to verify and clean up the data that we have, and the best way to do that is to invite you to submit the essential data from your side.  Please go to the web site and click on the "Receive Notices" option in the menu bar, or you can simply click on the image below (choose to "Download pictures" if you don't see it).

The plan

  1. Invite the known communinty to submit their personal data for verification (ID Numbers, Section numbers and involvements are required, as well as name, email address and cell phone).
  2. Invite others to be included in the distribution.
  3. The data that is entered will be used to check and update our existing data about owners, tenants and others.
  4. Printed notices will be put under doors, inviting occupiers to log on to the web and get registered.
  5. In the next phase, owners and agents will be invited to identify any tenants, family members, and others who might be concerned to know about our emergency actions.

Now - click on the image below

Download pictures if you can't see the image

This is the first Notice to be distributed.  Please tell us if you have any comments or questions at all - there may be a few road-bumps along the way!

Now, please go to the web site and submit the personal data that we need for our records! Thank you.

AMI, who are providing the water measurement services associated with the new meters, have an 'App' for your smart phone that lets you see your consumption on an hourly, daily, weekly or monthly basis.  You can download the App from:

- Android:  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=dk.saseco.kamstrup
- iPhone: https://itunes.apple.com/de/app/ebutler-kamstrup/id980496106?l=en&mt=8

or simply search in the App Store for “eButler”. Make sure to install the English version of
the App !

You will be able to see instructions for using the App (currently being prepared) here:

- https://www.mutualheights.info/MHM/miWaterReadings.php

 

From February, and for the duration of the water crisis, Mutual Heights warter billing will be guided by the new Level 6b City of Cape Town water Tariffs. Average usage (3000 litres per month) will cost about R40; if you use as much as our WORST OFFENDER in December, it will cost you more than R4500.

See the newsletter: click here:

The immediate consequence is that water rationing will be introduced, so that the supply of water might be interrupted. This raises concerns about the availability of water for fighting fires.

We have recently had all the powder fire extinguishers and fire hoses serviced; the main water supply systems to the sprinkler systems have also been checked and serviced.

There is a booster system for the water pressure to be adjusted should the pressure drop, which has also been checked and serviced. The tanks on the roof are connected to the fire hoses as an addition to the water we have in the system at present. Hence, all that can be done has been done.

We understand there are perfectly good reasons why usage changes, but owners not in residence need to know just in case.

The new management team looking after the Banking Hall (EventRoom) are now working on necessary repairs to the Banking Hall. They wish to cover the windows to the gym and the walkway on the other side: as the newsletter explained:

The operator wants to prevent onlookers gazing in from the gym and from the walkway on the other side (and improve some additional sound insulation at the same time). It is proposed that decorated polystyrene will be fitted against the windows (on their side of the glass) in the same way that other windows looking into sections have been obscured for privacy, from the inside. The nature of the decoration is to be determined.

Dino (from EventRoom) has two suggestions:
1) apply a one way vinyl to the glass, which will still give your tenants a view of the banquet hall.
2) apply sound proofing material to the windows that will block the tenants visibility of the venue but provide extra noise insulation.
Any comments received before FRIDAY 17h00 this week will be taken into consideration. Trustees will then manage the process from next week.

Thank you.
We have reports of shouting, screaming, loud cell phone conversations and anti-social behaviour during Friday and Saturday nights. If we are to deal with this we need any evidence that you can provide. Please provide by email as soon as possible: info@mutualheights.net.

If there are further disturbances, it is important to call security immediately - 021 461 1698. Please collect any evidence and make notes that can go on the record.

Thank you.
Owners and residents are urged to study the new restrictions imposed by the City of Cape Town that are explained here.

In summary, you should IMMEDIATELY ...
- Cut your water use to less than 87 litres per person per day
- Limit water consumption to 20 kilolitres per month in total
- Use municipal drinking water only for essential washing, cooking and drinking purposes, and only use indoors
- Check and fix all leaks on your property
Following the scheduled AGM on 22nd June that was not quorate, the requisite number of members met at the same time on 29th June and concluded the business as discussed with those present on the 22nd June.  Minutes will be circulated in due course.
Under the amended Sectional Title Act the number of attendees required at an AGM for a quorum has increased. On  Thursday last week (22 June) the AGM was short of a quorum by about 10, including all proxies submitted.  It was agreed that the agenda would be discussed, and that in accordance with the rules, there will be a follow-through meeting on Thursday this week  (29 June) at which the business will be concluded.  This meeting can proceed with only two members present but if you wish to be there, perhaps because you wanted to attend last week but were not able, please contact the office to confirm the exact time and location.
Our AGM is scheduled for 22 June next week. What you might not know is that the rules about the quorum and proxy arrangements have changed. Under the new rules, when compared with last year we will need almost TWICE as many owners represented in order to proceed. No one may have more than TWO proxies under the new rules (including the chairman). If the meeting is NOT quorate there are arrangements for a followup meeting a week later, but clearly this is not satisfactory for anyone.

We are therefore urging you to complete the proxy form sent to you with the notice of the meeting or - at the very least - to simply email your indication that you wish to pass an 'open' proxy to the meeting. If you are willing for your proxy to be allocated at the meeting then your proxy, with all the other 'open' proxies, will simply be shared out amongst those who do attend. Thank you for taking the time to do this - it is appreciated.

A suitable form of words for your email (please edit as necessary) would be:

To: The Body Corporate

Mutual Heights Body Corporate
Sectional Scheme number/year: 326/2005

We, the undersigned owner(s) and member(s) give notice to the body corporate of the above scheme that I/we appoint the chairman to speak and vote on our behalf at the general meeting to be held on 22 June 2017 (including adjournments).
If he is not able to exercise this proxy appointment due to the restrictions contained in the proviso to section 6(5) of the Sectional Title Schemes Management Act, 8 of 2011, then we authorise the chairman to substitute a third party instead of himself as my agent.

Member Name(s):
Unit Number(s):

[please insert your usual email signature]
Papers will be circulated in the usal way. Please let us know if you have any particular questions - there will be time for an open discussion at the end of the meeting. Trustees will want to focus briefly on the management of short-term visitors (such as, but not limited to, AirBnB), which we intend to manage using the new web site. More details at the meeting. Be there if you can, and if not PLEASE send in the proxy form that will be available with the papers.  Thank you.
The City of Cape Town explains …

Level 4 water restrictions

Council has approved Level 4 water restrictions, effective from 1 June 2017 until further notice. Level 4 entails a ban on all use of municipal drinking-quality water for outside and non-essential purposes. Associated Level 4 restrictions tariffs will be implemented as of 1 July 2017 (see tariffs below).

Insufficient rainfall and fast declining dam levels have led to the current unprecedented water crisis.

Please immediately:
• Cut your water use to less than 100 litres, per person, per day
• Use municipal drinking water only for essential washing, cooking and drinking purposes, and only use indoors
• Check and fix all leaks on your property

Level 4 water restrictions include the following:
• No hosing down of paved surfaces with municipal drinking water.
• No irrigation/watering with municipal drinking water allowed.
• No washing of vehicles and boats with municipal water. (Commercial car washes may apply for exemption.)
• Private swimming pools may not be topped up or filled with municipal drinking water.
• Use of portable play pools prohibited.
• Water features may not use municipal drinking water.
