The Ridge Line – Dec. 2018

The Ridge Line – December 2018

Hello Everybody! As winter has arrived, we are doing our best to keep you safe and warm!  After the last snow storm, the Board decided to purchase two spanking new snow blowers so we are even better prepared for the next one.  Remember, there is no garbage pickup on days with more than 3 inches of snow; on those days, please take your trash and recycling to the main dumpsters, or wait until the next morning to put it out. To further ensure our comfort this winter, we are having all boilers on the premises fully prepped for the addition of generators in the event of a power failure.

Seasonal Reminders

  • Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors are required in every unit and now is the time for your quarterly battery testing. Do a sound test of all your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors and be prepared with replacement 9 volt batteries.  This not only ensures your safety and those of other residents, but is also required by law.
  • Tag your outdoor furniture and grills! If the maintenance team doubts the safety or finds something in disrepair that is not tagged, it has the obligation to remove it.
  • Detached propane tanks are not allowed anywhere on the premises.
  • Don’t store shovels, tools or toys outside or in the garage; keep them in your apartment or storage unit. Unattended items other than lawn furniture or grills pose tripping hazards and may be removed. Storage cages are available in certain buildings for $25 per month; call Bob Voss of the Maintenance Office at 914-723-1919 if interested.
  • Smoking is not permitted in any common areas such as hallways, door steps, laundry rooms, storage rooms, or garages, and may only be done if it at least 25 feet from any building and if butts are discarded properly and not on our grounds.
  • To keep away unwanted animals, birdseed feeders are not allowed on any outdoor premises, no household garbage may be tossed into any outdoor trash bins except closed dumpsters, and all building entrance doors must be kept closed.

Insurance Requirements
If you have still not sent in your proof of coverage, you are required to do so before the end of December.  Send your documentation by email to or mail to: Tina Marchi, Douglas Elliman Property Management, 675 3rdAvenue, New York, NY 10017.

The CCR House Rules require each shareholder to maintain up-to-date homeowners’ insurance coverage naming Country Club Ridge Tenants Corp. as “certificate holder” with minimum $300k general liability, $50,000 property damage, and $50,000 contents damage or loss.  It is also important to include any prior improvements or planned improvements in your policy.

Laundry Room Etiquette
Remember, we live here! Residents may use the laundry rooms only between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. during the week and 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends and holidays.  Be sure to remove your laundry from washers and dryers promptly, clean up after yourselves (cat owners, this means you!), and treat others’ clothing with respect if anything gets left behind. If any of the washers or dryers malfunctions or you lose money, contact Hercules (see posters in laundry rooms) with the details so you can be refunded, and so they can repair or replace the machine.

Our Staff
Country Club Ridge will be adding additional part-time staff this winter to assist our hard-working team of Bob, Kevin, Freddy, Felix, Donny and Noel in keeping everyone safe, warm and comfortable this winter.

SUGGESTIONS are always welcome!  Feel free to contact Bob Voss of the Maintenance Office at 914-723-1919, James Flaherty of Douglas Elliman Property Management at
212-692-8445 or the CCR Board by email to Board@CountryClubRidge.Org.

The Board wishes everyone a Healthy and Joyful Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!

See you on the Ridge Line – where Rockledge Road meets Hartsdale Avenue.
