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.

It has been a while since my last post as I have had to spend time catching up on other things after spending hundreds of hours on the petition project last year. I have also been waiting for the petition appeal to move forward, which was finally scheduled a few weeks ago with my appeal brief due soon (June 30th). From there, the other side has 30 days to respond, and hopefully soon thereafter the appeal will be decided. I am still optimistic that the trial court judge will be overturned partially or entirely, and we will finally get some relief in terms of a special election.

In the meantime, I have been contemplating more possible by-law amendments, including one to force the Board to send any future special assessments to the entire membership for approval. Without such protection, I'm sure they will try to rob us again in the future.

I have made it to all but one of the recent Board meetings. I could comment on many of the Boards actions, but suffice it to say about 90% of what they do, I would do the exact opposite. They just cancelled the June Meeting - I'm sure they will have a cover story, but coincidentally they just sent out dozens of collections letters for the $1,200 special assessment, so I assume the meeting was cancelled to give the "delinquent" owners some time to cool off. For the second year in a row, it looks like they are not going to run the sprinklers. Weather permitting, we were usually checking and fixing the sprinklers by late April. It is now mid-June and they are still not running, so get ready for dozens of more dead trees and acres of destroyed turf. I guess they think they are saving money.

Since I still have not paid all the $1,200 special assessment, I received a collections letter from Ms. Radom on Friday the 16th. The letter is full of errors. I responded, and you can see all the details and the games they play in their letter and my response here:

The annual elections are going to start soon. I have really tried to stay away and give the board a chance to do the right thing, but thus far I am very un-impressed. Therefore, unless they assassinate me in the next few months, I will likely be on the ballot this year, hopefully along with enough other sane candidates that aren't afraid to do what needs to be done, which includes fire the attorney and fire the management company. Patricia Mincarelli and Forest Luu are up for election this year. After how Pattie behaved last year during multiple public meetings, disrespecting and abusing dozens of us owners, I can't believe she would run but I'm sure she is delusional enough to try. Hopefully enough owners will remember her performances. At least the head of the snake is gone - now just the body remains.
