Our 2018 Budget was ratified on Thursday Nov 16th. The 2018 budget is posted under the financials tab for your review.
Water Utilities: Rates have gone up! The water usage in DayBreak has increased, along with the water rates. New electronic meters installed at DayBreak indicate that we may have many leaky toilets. The water company calls these the "silent thief" as you cannot usually tell that the water is leaking. Dye tablets have been distributed throughout the community so that everyone can determine if their toilet is leaking. If it is, there may be a simple fix. Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer can answer simple questions and a lot of information can be found online. Water leaks affect everyone by increasing HOA dues. Thanks for your assistance in figuring out how to lower our consumption and utility bills. September 2017
It's time to think about maintenance for your home. Water supply lines to your washer, toilets, refrigerator and dishwasher should be replaced every 5 years and inspected annually; 62% of water damage claims are a hose or pipe bursting. For more information, click here:

Our Budget Ratification meeting was held on Thursday Dec 17, 2015 at the Issaquah Highlands Firestation at 7:30pm. With 2 residents in attendance, our budget was ratified for 2016.
Moving: Reminder, you must notify Kappes-Miller if you are a homeowner and have tenants living in your unit. Copies of your rental agreement/lease agreement must be sent in within 30 days of signing. If you see new neighbors moving, please send Kappes an email message. A $200 move-in fee is required of all new residents. Thanks for keeping our community on task!
Water Leaks: A water leak can be devastating to you and your neighbors. If you are leaving your home for any extended period of time, you can turn the water off inside your unit. This will guarantee that you don't return to a flooded home and avoids costly water damage to your home and potentially your neighbor's home as well.
The 2015 Annual Meeting took place on Thursday January 15th and we had a great turn out. Unfortunately, none of our proposed amendments passed (see Proposed Sixth Amendment under "DOCUMENTS" tab). We will be readdressing these issues again as they are very important to the future of DayBreak. The meeting minutes are posted under the "MORE" tab and will give you more detailed information about discussions and the election of board memebers.
Neighborhood Watch: Keep our community safe and try to keep an eye on one another's properties. When criminal activity is suspected, neighbors are encouraged to report to authorities, and not to intervene. Issaquah's non-emergency police department phone # is: (425) 837-3200
Pet Waste: Our community rules require residents to pick up and dispose of pet waste, to keep their pets on leashes when outside, and to keep pet noise levels to a minimum. Failure to dispose of pet waste creates an unclean and unhealthy environment for everyone, particularly small children. Please pick up after your pets and keep our community clean!
Water Heater Replacement: All units are being required to change out their aging hot water heaters by October 1st, 2014. If you have already changed the hot water heater in your unit, please send proof of replacement to Sherry Valentine at Kappes Miller. The following letter has been mailed to all homeowners in DayBreak and explains in detail why this decision has been made. June 6, 2014
Window Washing: This project will take place over Sept 18th & 19th. Each resident will need to remove their screens and pull them into the inside of your unit. The window cleaning company will not wash any windows that do not have their screens removed. Additionally, they will not be cleaning windows on your decks since you are able to clean those yourselves. Thank you for your cooperation while our community is beautified!

Pest Control: It's been brought to the attention of the board that unwelcome pests have taken a liking to the rockery near the A and B buildings. We have contacted a pest control company and they will be addressing the problem over the next several weeks. Please let us know if you have any issues or concerns regarding this project.

BBQ Grills: Just a reminder that charcoal type BBQ grills are not allowed in DayBreak. Only gas or propane grills are permitted and must be used with extreme caution. Never allow the grill or lid to get close to siding or railings. The heat can cause damage our building and that expense would be charged to the negligent homeowner. Please enjoy your summertime BBQ safely!
Mailbox Break-ins: Due to the recent break-ins, the board is reviewing bids to upgrade the security of our mailboxes. Estimates for new, higher quality mailbox kiosks are being analyzed to find the best option for our community. We should have upated information very soon. Please be sure to pick up your mail daily.
