NEW: Charge it to your Unit

Unit Charge Authorization

We are introducing a new service for non-delinquent unit owners to facilitate the payment for services and materials at the Pavilion.

We can continue pay in advance by check or money order or now we can charge it to our units.

This will make it easy to pay at the Pavilion office or wherever the owner might be by signing the form and emailing or faxing the form to the Pavilion.

For example, if you need A/C filters and you live in Buenos Aires,  you can contact the Pavilion and the form will be send to you with the corresponding amount for the filters and installation.

You can sign the form and return it to the Pavilion for the filters and installation by the Pavilion staff.

Remember, that if we do not pay on time a $25 late fee will be added to the Unit’s ledger.

Community Association Member Party


http://www.camp2012.net/
Owners living in Florida's many mandatory community associations are all in the same boat, no matter if you are a board member or an owner -- Republican, Democrat or Independent. You are still trying hard to pay the ever increasing assessments. However, for the past three years the Florida legislature has failed to create laws that will really help associations and owners.

 It's time to demand these necessary reforms from your legislators. It's time to organize as one cohesive group of Florida condo owners and homeowners and demand change that will protect you and your home -- your number one investment. 

We can no longer afford to pay for the mistakes of others. Let's stop fighting each other. It's high time we unite and demand that our legislators will do the right thing to pass a BILL that will REALLY help ALL of us. The provisions of this bill will not cost a dime for the State of Florida. This bill will help to make Florida more attractive for investors, retirees and prospective homeowners who want reassurance that their investments will be adequately protected.

City of Miami Beach: HURRICANE IRENE #1



Monday, August 22, 2011 | 5:00 p.m. 

We are closely monitoring Hurricane Irene that could be a potential threat to our area this week. At this time, all Miami Beach services continue normal operations. All residents and businesses are strongly encouraged to check their hurricane preparedness kits, review their family emergency plans; and remain informed.

As a reminder, Miami Beach is an evacuation zone, as such plan in advance where you will stay, how you will get there, and what supplies you will take in case an evacuation is issued. Also, give yourself ample time to get to a safe area.

You are encouraged to monitor the local news and weather. For information on how to prepare for a hurricane:
