    Greetings River Piners. A few months ago all co-owners received a ballot for voting on eight proposed changes to our Bylaws. The deadline for voting was August 13, and I regret to report that not enough ballots were submitted to allow any of the proposals to pass. So for now the Bylaws stay as they are. I’d like to thank all those co-owners who voted, and especially to thank those Board members and other co-owners who made an effort to ...

    Greetings River Piners. In the first few Board meetings this year, we’ve renewed our contract with our management company, McShane and Associates, for another three year term.

The Board also agreed to proceed with FHA recertification (required every two years), and approved contracts for irrigation system maintenance, spring flower installation, and gutter cleaning. A new edition of the River Pines Handbook and Directory is at the publisher, and you ...

Around River Pines

  • Ice Dams –

    During the winter, we sometimes see ice dams form on some units.  The freezing and thawing weather causes this condition and it can damage the roof of your unit and cause leaks.  If you see heavy icicles building up around your gutters, give Larry Bliss 248-767-5093 or Greg 734-323-7594 a call and let them know.

  • Snow Season –

    Remember, the snow season is here so please don’t park on the street when we have snow storms and park your car in the garage so we can clean the driveway effectively.

  • Storm Doors – 9/8/15 –

    With the winter weather just around the corner many co-owners consider adding a storm door or upgrading their existing storm door.  River Pines has a restriction on the type and color of storm door so check the rules and regulations under the documents menu and get the specifics on storm doors.

River Pines is managed by McShane & Associates, Inc. and handles the day-to-day administration of the association. Most of your questions or concerns can be handled by contacting their office.

In a condominium association, the Board of Directors establishes the policies, sets the budget and then directs the management firm to carry them out.

Living in River Pines

“Just wanted to share our thoughts about the professional job that Pasko & Tony and their crew from American Euro Painting, Inc. are doing. They spent several days scraping the entire units, caulking, and replacing wood before ever starting to paint. They are methodical, neat,and very hard workers taking great pride in their workmanship. The quality of paint being used gives a rich appearance, especially the front door and garage.  Read more from neighbors
