A brief commentary on this meeting:
The meeting started with the presence of key representatives from Glenmarie Asset Management (GAM) and New Generation Force (employed by GAM). The food chain is thus: GCD —–GAM——NGF. GAM explained that they have an auxiliary police division that can give training to key persons and the guards they wish to keep. We emphasized the need for them to follow the SOP and provided examples of occurrences when common sense was not applied. We gave NGF notice that as residents we are ultimately their paymasters and we will ask for their removal if we judge that they are not up to the job. We also advised them to record incidents where residents have acted improperly and we will help them deal with the persons involved.
GCD confirmed that the new access system shall be fully operational by 1 april, 2012. The CCTV cameras shall also be fully functioning by the same date and all residents shall updated car stickers soon. We touched on the ‘old tag for new card’ swap and there was no objection from GCD. We need to talk further on this and decide on the pricing for the new cards for new residents. Also we are likely to have every person above the age of 12 carry an access card with a photograph embedded in it as an identity tool to gain access into the club house facilities in due course.
The new club house is delayed yet again. GCD stated that the RM2.2 million contract should be awarded by 1 March, 2012 and works to begin by the middle of that month. This matter needs to be monitored closely and may require the tightening of some screws by residents.
GCD is receptive to the need to rectify the poorly designed boat ramp at Seri Santai. Cost is obviously a factor to be considered but it was emphasized to the COO that the developer cannot simply cross its arms and say , “sorry, we made a mistake” and leave it at that. GCD must rectify the ramp and put it to good use. This is really a bone for the boat owners to pick on, but these residents may have bought properties in GC because of easy access into the Sungai Langat. Now they cannot even launch a small sampan where riverside resort living was the catch phrase.
I think the ramp can be rectified and I have made some sketches which the engineers seem to agree with but since I am not a civil engineer or a construction specialist, I’d better let the experts do the talking.
