Major clubhouse changes costing possibly tens of thousands of dollars are mentioned on the HOA Board meeting notice posted near the clubhouse office and a few other places.

Voting to approve these significant clubhouse renovations and upgrades may occur Wednesday morning.

The posted Notice of Meeting appears to say that the HOA Board directors will limit ALL discussion to a TOTAL of 10 minutes to speed up the meeting decisions.

Residents interested in observing the Clubhouse upgrade expense decision & voting process should surely attend!  

Tennis court renovations,  floor tile upgrades and more will be discussed briefly.

Owners are permitted by Florida law to make video and audio recordings of Board meetings.

Note:  The new audio and video surveillance equipment is installed in clubhouse/office ceiling areas now.  

A notice sign of this recording of visitors in the hallway of the office is on a clubhouse wall at office.

Where is the Village Newspaper?

Unofficial tips, news, ads, and opinions from resident “Friends of Golden Lakes Village” in West Palm Beach,  Florida,  33401.

The official, carefully edited community newspaper for Phase B of Golden Lakes Village, is named “The Village Speaker”.

PHASE A of Golden Lakes Village, near the entrance gate from Okeechobee Blvd.,  publishes a separate newspaper, the “Village Talk”, with its own Phase A event calendars,  ads,  news,  and photos. Look for the “TALK” newspaper in the main clubhouse office hallway.

The Phase B “Speaker” is not always easy to find and take a copy of by Realtors trying to help sell or buy units, and by residents who visit the Phase B clubhouse infrequently,  such as our traveling “snowbird residents. ”

The location of our newspaper moves sometimes!

You’re welcome to ask at the office window for its current pick up location,  OR in June, 2015, you can simply pick up a free copy of the colorful, information packed , ad and calendar-event filled paper inside the Phase B “CAFE”.

The Cafe,  near the enormous,  “main pool,” is located at the pool-end of the central, office hallway known locally as “the Breezeway.”

Simply open the door into the Cafe,  then look to your left for shelves in the nearest corner,  check the date of publication for latest issue and take one!.

Important Note:  Get it by email automatically.
The office should arrange for you to regularly receive full, the colorful, most current issues by Email just by requesting it!  This is an invaluable, easy way to get your copy of the newspaper –  fast and free.  An email address for requesting delivery by Email is shown in the paper version of the Speaker.
