Insurance Committee Robert Bishop:

The insurance committee met with Robert Clinton, head of the Insurance Committee, on 1/19/2021 to discuss GL & property insurance.  The decision was made to stay with the current insurance provider.  However, the 10k deductible will now be 25k.  The Umbrella insurance policy was changed from $200 million to $175 million.  It was noted that every contract that El Mirador is going to enter into needs to be reviewed first by the Umbrella policy insurer.   It was also noted that anytime we have a claim or think that we have a claim,  the claim needs to be reported within 3-10 days.


Robert Bishop recommended that the Kirk Miller Agency comes in to conduct a loss/control survey.

New Business:

USPS (United State Postal Service)

The USPS worker will no longer be pulling mail for homeowners and holding it indefinitely.  Homeowners will either need to complete a USPS form requesting that the Coronado Post Office holds their mail for a pre-determined time or make arrangements to have someone else pick up their mail.  A suggestion was made by a homeowner that Rafael Estrada discuss this with the 9 other General Managers of the Coronado Shores buildings to find out how they are addressing this issue.



Global Power (Fire Pump)

Our building’s fuel injection pump needs to be repaired.  Global Power has not responded to our calls so Rafael Estrada will get bids from two (2) additional companies.


Hallway Carpets

Rafael Estrada is securing three (3) bids for the cleaning of the hallway carpets.


Cintas Proposal

We received a bid from Cintas to supply our building with sanitizer refills, auto dispensers and stands.  A motion was made by Ken Sigelman, 2nd by Cheryl Mahoney to accept their proposal as well as increasing the number of stands from 3 to 6.  Motion passed 4-1


Homeowners Communication

A homeowner from #1609 brought up an issue relative to his unit remodel.  He was instructed to write his comments and thoughts to the General Manager who would then share it with the BOD’s.  The response will then come from the Architectural Committee.


A few homeowners proposed questions regarding the roles and responsibilities of the building’s Engineer staff as well as Dish Network’s station coverage and a maintenance issue.  It was noted by the President that these questions should be sent to and addressed by the General Manager.



Next Meeting:                                                February 19, 2021
