Where Have Disrespectful Partiers Led?

Last month we experienced an unfortunate incident where someone rented the house and used it for a party, resulting in a major mess and angry neighbors. Karen Hunt of iTrip Seattle reported to the Dewan on Saturday on steps that she has taken to make sure such a situation does not arise again. Here are the steps she has taken:

1. She has installed another camera, which will record people entering through the garage.

2. She is installing a device which will monitor how many wifi or bluetooth devices are in the house, as well as heat sensors to detect how many people are there.

3. She has talked to the neighbors who were affected by the noise, given them her number, and let them know that she will personally respond to complaints.

4. She is looking for a security company that would handle and eviction, if that were to be necessary.

5. She has written a negative review of the person responsible for the party, and is seeking $2,000 in damage reimbursement.

A cleansing Latihan has been scheduled for the house Tuesday September 7th after the regular men’s Latihan that day. Men attending Latihan that day are welcome to join the cleansing Latihan. 

Use of Spring Street Center

We are renting the whole house now instead of individual rooms, so please be considerate of our guests who are helping defray the considerable costs of keeping our building in good condition. We have use of both Latihan halls from 10:30AM to 1:00 PM on Sundays, and the Mens hall on Tuesdays from 9:45 AM to 11:00 AM.  This includes access to the quiet room next to the Women’s hall, the bathroom adjacent to the Womens quiet room, the basement kitchen, the anteroom to the Men’s hall, and the bathroom IN the Men’s hall. We do NOT have access to the laundry room, the bathroom next to it, or the rest of the house.
We (the group) can always block out the entire house (as long as it is not already rented) and have use of it.  This costs us nothing (except, of course, potential lost revenue).
If there are no renters and with go-ahead from Karen, the group may use the kitchen and living room AS LONG AS DEBBIE KNOWS, AND WE COMMIT TO UNDERWRITING A  PROFESSIONAL CLEANING after use of those areas.
Please remember, we ALWAYS need to check first with the committee.  The house is now being rented, and we are not to disturb the renters in any way.
