Power is on at MBYCC

Good news to all residents at MBYCC.  Some power was restored late last night, while others did not get power until early this morning.  While the power was restored, some units still had no a/c, cable or internet connection.  Around 9 a.m. this morning, most everyone we knew had power and was back up and running. By that time Thom was feeling better and on site around 5:00 a.m. checking on things.  Both pools have been cleaned and back up and running.  The Clubhouse is now open as usual.  The mail has been running since Tuesday this week, even though they still don’t have power. There are still many places without power.  Please keep those individuals in your thoughts and prayers as the temperature (with heat index) is around and just above 100 degrees daily. Many of owners has had someone here to check their units.  If you do not have anyone to check your unit and you have left food in your fridge, then please contact the office because rotten food will attract flies and other insects you would not want inside your unit.  We are slowly getting back on track and now have more time to deal with individuals. Thank you to all of you that has helped us and neighbors out during this time.  Your time and effort is much appreciated.  Keep well,...

Update September 15, 2017

Another day with no power.  Some owners are still holding out with the heat while staying in their units, while others come in for the day and seek refuge in the evenings and night. Duke Energy is still promising that we all will have power by midnight tonight so I hope I have good news to report tomorrow afternoon.  If power is restored, the maintenance staff and I will he on hand tomorrow to try and get caught up on your emails and phone messages. Thom is out sick the strept throat and we hope he is feeling better by Monday so he can return to work and be able to contact those owners that have called or emailed him.  In the meantime, we will try and keep you updated. Our insurance company has been contacted and we have been told to get our contractors out to assess any damages and make a full report to see where we stand in regards to filing a claim.  So far roofers, gutter people and the gate company have been contacted to get the roofs, gutters and soffits and gates inspected. We would like to solicit your help with some of these things. Once you arrive back on the property, please check your unit for any damage, water leaks and/or problems that may be related to the hurricane. Also, check your attics for any possible signs of roof leaks or damage. Report anything suspecious to the office.  We have been advised not to file any claims that are less than 5% of the insured value. Any input would be helpful. We have...
