Members will recall at the Annual Budget Meeting it was discussed that an engineering report completed on our buildings resulted in a premium reduction of $13,593.00 for 2007. Management advised that it completed and had submitted documentation to the Insurance Company seeking a rebate for the 2006 premium year based on that same report. The insurance company has advised that since it was received prior to the expiration of last year’s policy a rebate would be evaluated and notice of the rebate value forwarded to the Association within the next few weeks.
