This is the independent WEB site for the Society Hill at Piscataway Condominium Association, located in Piscataway, NJ. This site is not sponsored, endorsed, or supported by the Association, the Board of Trutees, or the Managment Company. It is run by a former member of the Board of Trustees.
Much of the content from the prior Association's WEB site has been moved here. However, since this site is not connected to the management systems, it no longer supports on-line service requests, reminders, on-line payments and account history, and owner/tenant/vehicle updating.
If you are looking for the Association's official new WEB site, they don't really have one - it's just a payment portal for the monthly fees.
The current Board "Removal" Petition. The weekly Hill ZOOM Meeting.
Petition Submitted, BOT Hill Meeting Today 5PM, Wed Community ZOOM by Kevin Wine, Sep 12, 2022, 9:16 PM, reply, branch, edit
The petitions have been submitted to the Board, along with a copy to the Board's attorney, and were confirmed to have been received by them last Thursday, September 9th. We are now waiting on the Board to do what they are legislatively required to do, as per PREDFDA.
Tonight, Tuesday September 13th, at 5 PM, is the Board's "Special Meeting" with all their Hill removal "experts" at taking our money.
Here is their link, in case you missed (or didn't receive) their email on September 6th:
Meeting ID: 841 0703 3000
You may remember that several owners who were trying to help the Board find other cheaper solutions to the Hill problem were asking the Board to call a special meeting to present their finding. The Board resisted the request, and now that they have finally called a special Board meeting (over a month later!), it is clear from the agenda that they are snubbing those owners that were trying to help out:
Many of us will either still be at work at 5PM, or driving home from work. I will still attend, but I will probably be interrupted multiple times since I usually work till about 6PM.
There is a Q&A session on the agenda, so I assume owners in attendance will have some chance to ask questions, however it's at the end of the meeting and there is a good chance the "experts" will have been dismissed from the call by that point. This is a trick they have played before - we will see.
I just noticed a few days ago that the Board has finally charged the $2,000 special assessment to our maintenance fee accounts. So if it wasn't already clear, it should be crystal clear by now that they are not going to voluntarily change their plan to rob us of nearly $700,000. WE ARE URGING ALL OWNERS TO NOT PAY THIS UNTIL THE LAST POSSIBLE MINUTE (LATE OCTOBER). If the Board doesn't have the money to make the down payment to A-Tech ($400,000!!!), they won't be able to really begin the work. Hopefully that will delay things enough to get this board replaced.
If the board was smart, they would at least modify the proposal to accurately reflect the actual volume of soil in the hill (which is one-quarter to one-third what they estimate), but it is clear they are not even going to do that.
Several owners have been asking the Board for the monthly financial statements, but so far the Board has ignored the requests! The Board is REQUIRED to provide a "statement of receipts and expenditures" to any owners requesting such, so yet again the Board is operating beyond its authority in ignoring/denying these requests. If anyone has been successful in obtaining any monthly financial information since last October, please let me know. The last monthly financial statement we have is from September 2021:

Again this week there is little point in having the regular Tuesday community zoom meeting, so we will instead focus on the Wednesday community meeting at 6PM. Link is the same as last Wednesday:
See you all there!
