Since there’s a delay between when this gets written and when it gets distributed, Happy post-Thanksgiving and/or pre–Merry Christmas.
This is an ideal time to thank those who deserve thanks for keeping this building going. First and foremost, we thank our dedicated Building Manager Joseph Arellano. He’s here every day all day and on call 24/7. Many a night he has raced over here for an emergency after most of us are snuggled in our beds. He’s a problem-solver and friend to all, including those with four legs. We also thank our industrious janitors: Victor Gonzales, and Maria and Francisco Cardenas.
Lastly would it be too much to suggest you thank your Board, and in particular our president Mark Cabaj? HOAs get such a bad rap -especially on the Internet. But the truth is these seven generous volunteers spend untold hours poring over repair contracts, educating themselves on the Internet and having meetings – all with the goal of making our building safe, clean and in good repair. We do our best.
Holiday decorations are permitted from Halloween season
through New Year’s Eve. After that all decorations and string lights are not allowed on your balcony or your doors. Please wrap your dead Christmas tree in a sheet so as not to fill the hallways and elevators with pine needles. Thank you.
Pacific Tower Homeowner’s Association has a monthly meeting, usually the third Tuesday of every month and if you’re an owner, you’re invited! Meet your Board and neighbors. Find out where your $540 is going. We’d love to have you! If you get bored, you’re welcome to leave – no pressure.
Since the pandemic, we’ve held our meetings on Zoom instead of gathering in- person in the Rec Room and many owners have taken advantage of participating virtually from the comfort of their units. Pajamas are permitted (if not too sexy).
At the beginning of each meeting, homeowners are invited to ask questions of the Board, raise issues or lodge complaints for five minutes per person.
If you have a computer and would like to get a Zoom invitation for the next meeting, please email Keisha@phoac.com. If you don’t have a computer, you can still join the meeting by phone. Meeting announcement posted in the Lobby 4 days before the meeting gives the Zoom Meeting phone number so you can join by phone.
President – Mark Cabaj, Vice President - Karyl Miller, Secretary – Julie Menas, Treasurer – Anthony Mariucci, Directors – Troy Krich, Robin Del Pape, and George Kyrala.

Covid Updates and Rules
As of this writing no one in the building has caught Covid that we know of. Yay! But Delta is still in the air. Yes, we have vaccines, but some people cannot take the vax for various reasons. Please be careful. It ain’t over till it’s over. Social distance is still a good thing and so are masks. At least have a mask at-the-ready. Thank you.
