Dengue Fever. The outbreak of dengue fever on Hawai‘i Island has prompted some concerns throughout the state. Dengue fever is widespread throughout the tropics and is transmitted by mosquito, in Hawai‘i principally the Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes, sometimes called “tiger mosquitoes” for their striped appearance.
Since the mosquito vector is the only way dengue fever is transmitted, we can take mosquito-control measures to reduce the risk of contracting this serious illness. Our staff routinely checks for standing water in and around the building, including in the various plants we have, like bromeliads, that can hold pockets of water. We will then either empty the water or flush it out.
You, your agent or tenants should check for standing water on your unit’s lanai and take appropriate action.
You will find more information on the state’s Department of Health page on the current outbreak.

Drain Line Replacement. We are about halfway through the Tower 1, 06-stack drain line replacement. The work has gone smoothly and many owners have taken advantage of the opportunity to replace their corroded unit drain lines.
After the T1 06-stack is finished, we will move to the 13-stack in Tower 2, the first of the end or corner unit stacks we’ll address.
The end unit drain lines are accessible from either the kitchen or the bathroom. Maintenance will inspect each unit before work starts to determine how best to access the drain line to minimize disruption.
Owner Parking 2016. We have ordered the owners parking passes for 2016. The new passes will be effective noon January 1, 2016. The 2015 passes will no longer be valid after that date, but we will allow a one week grace period for the 2015 passes.
Each owner is entitled to one (1) parking pass for each apartment owned. Control of the parking pass is the unit owner’s responsibility. You may assign your pass to your tenant or rental agent, however we must have your personally signed authorization before we will give a pass to anyone but you.
If you sell your unit, please give the pass to the new owner. If you do not, the new owner will have to pay $100 for a new pass.
We will not mail out the passes. They will be available beginning December 22 in the Administration Office, 306-II, during normal business hours.
To assign your parking pass, please fill out and sign the authorization form and mail, email or fax it to the Admin Office.
