The Board of Directors at East Lake Village are pleased to announce that we have chosen a new Property Management Company, Avant-Garde Property management of Stuart Fl . 
  Avant-Garde management will be starting June 1, 2019. More details will be coming soon to your mailboxes explaining the transition and more information from Avant-Garde Management. Bear with us as we transition property management companies and all that is  involved with that. There will be no Board meetings in May but they will resume in June and once we have a date/time/place firmed up you will be notified . We are very excited for this move and happy to be working with the people at Avant-Garde and in a short time you will see first hand why we chose them . Here is a link to their  website

TV Everywhere now available
Posted on Apr 27th, 2019 Comments (0)
OpticalTel is pleased to announce the launch of  Video on Demand and TV Everywhere to enhance the community’s digital video service.  If your residents wish to access Video on Demand or TV Everywhere please advise them to contact OpticalTel at 855-303-4237 or e-mail support@Opticaltel.com to activate their account.   They will be asked to provide a valid  email address for account creation as well as current and valid billing information.   As discussed, this is very similar to opening an Itunes account on I phones.  Simply because we ask for credit card information does not mean we charge the account.   Credit card information must be provided to create the account. 
Again,  East Lake Village residents only need to contact us and ask for access to Video on Demand and/or TV Everywhere.   OpticalTel team members will set up the request and provide access information.
Thank you so much for your patience and cooperation.

Thank you

New faster internet is here
Posted on Jul 23rd, 2018 Comments (0)
As of last week , all units in East Lake Village should have been upgraded to the new bulk internet speeds of 100/100 Mbps as the base internet speed . No one should be billed individually anymore for internet Unless you want speeds higher than 100/100 Mbps. It's possible some units may have been missed in the upgrade so please check your internet speeds to see if you have the new standard speeds 100/100 . These speeds would be direct from the outlet not wirelessly . For example ,my router is upstairs and downstairs I'm receiving 88/104 Mbps 
 So we have the upgraded phones since Jan , now the internet ,just waiting on the new video services !

Opticaltel Update
Posted on Jul 18th, 2018 Comments (0)
To all Residents of East Lake Village
I wanted to be sending this out announcing that the individual home installs of our new IPTV Platform were to begin. As it was explained at the cable meeting that was held in February 2018, all the services are contractually to be completed by August 1. 2018 and they had hoped to begin the installs late June or early July 18, 2018. That timeline is not going to be met.  I’ve been in contact with Opticaltel this past week and today in an attempt to get a more updated picture for all of you.
 Opticaltel is in the middle of a complicated platform change in able to provide us with the Video delivered by an IPTV platform that involves many moving parts and dealing with multiple companies in order to make this happen properly. During negotiations we anticipated this possibly happening and we included a monetary penalty to Opticaltel should they not meet the August 1 deadline.
Opticaltel is working diligently to bring this to completions, so be patient as we all walk through this needed upgrade together.
No individual account (home) should be billed for internet service as of August 1 2018 unless you currently are getting more than 100 mbps. So if you are billed for internet for August please call Opticaltel and they will straighten that billing error out. 
Should you have any questions feel free to email me at eastlakewjn@gmail.com

Cable/Phone/Internet

To all
 The first phase of the new agreement with Opticaltel has begun. As of today's date Opticaltel has credited the community with the agreed to door fee of 300.00 a home which gives us a 157,500 credit on our bill.
 In addition everyone's telephones are now unlimited USA/Canada Continental at zero cost to any home owner. So if your currently paying the 10.00 fee for that to Opticaltel make sure it's not listed on your bill for January.
 Also by January 1 2018 every unit that currently pays them for Internet services will have upgraded speeds at no higher costs .
Also the internet speeds will be increased by Jan 1 ( most likely by this Friday ) 
  -if you currently pay for less than 50 mbps they will upgrade you to 50 Mbps free of charge      -If you pay for more than 50 but less than 75 they will upgrade you to 75
-  If you pay for 75 they will upgrade you to 100   
These will remain in effect till August 1,2018 when the entire community will receive 100/100 Mbps
 There will be a community meeting/townhall sometime in Feb to explain the entire contract , upgrades, timeline etc . Stay tuned and look for a mailing coming soon
 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 
Wayne J Newton - East Lake Village Community Association Board President

Architectural Review Process
Posted on Jun 9th, 2017 Comments (0)
When you submit an Architectural application please submit only a completed application. There are several additional documents, as stated on the application, which are required for the application to be approved, without all documents your application will be considered incomplete and returned as such. No work on the exterior of a single family or townhome may begin without a conditionally approved Architectural application.  Upon completion of the work it is also required that Advantage Property management is notified . Your home then can be inspected to complete your Architectural application.  Many owners are not calling for this final inspection which leaves your application as incomplete.
 
Please follow the above procedure to make this process seamless for owners, the volunteers on the ARB and Advantage Property.
 
Thank you,
 
ARB committee
