Thanks to all those that attended the Annual Owners Meeting held at the Watercrest Condominium on Saturday, October 24th. Thank you to Jacob Lehtio, our outgoing VP and Rich Koenders, our outgoing Secretary. Your service to the community was greatly appreciated. We would also like to welcome Jennifer Kasztelan and Bobby McMillan as our newest Directors on the BOD!
The Fall Garage Sale held on October 17th was a huge success! Thanks go out to our POC, Evelyn Livermore. We will have another community garage sale in the spring.
The BOD made a decision to go with one community waste disposal company due to the road damage multiple carriers created. All residents are asked to utilize our preferred waste hauler, Mr. Trash. Residents were provided a letter detailing the preferred rates and recycling options. Please make the switch to Mr Trash if they are not already your carrier.

Dolphin Bay welcomes our new management company, Coastal Property Services, Inc. Coastal's involvement in the day to day operations management of Dolphin Bay should be seamless and will help us more effectively run the community and allow the BOD to focus less on administative issues and more on overall improvements to our community. Their POCs are Dennis Fuller and Tammy O'Loughlin. He can be reached at 1-800-676-8350 ext. 15
WOW recently upgraded lines into our community, changing from analog to digital signals. As a result, gate channel 5 is now 5-1 and the channel 10 slide show is channel 5-2. Use channels 800 and 801 with a cable box
Owners are reminded not to give out their personal gate codes. Email Doug Semon at email@example.com if you need a temporary code for contractors
Let the BOD know if you are interested in becoming an active member of our newly established Neighborhood Watch Program. Contact Bill Woods at 867-0913 for more info. Remember, keep your garage doors closed and lock your car doors when parked outside in your driveway
The BOD recently amended the CCRs to include restrictions on the operations of golf carts/motorized vehicles in the community. Drivers must be licensed drivers or be under the direct supervision of a licensed driver or one with a learners permit at a minimum and operate in accordance with state laws. This action was taken for the safety of all those in our community. Owners are also reminded to keep off the empty bay front lots. These parcels are private property and there is no easement to the water. The owners have asked the board to assist in keeping trespassers off their property. Parking on empty lots is also expressly prohibited per our Covenants.
Residents will notice the presence of BCSO deputies in the community at varying hours during different days of the week. They are here for your safety and security and will assist us in handling recent incidents of criminal mischief as well as traffic enforcement. They will also help enforce certain covenant issues such as (but not limited to) illegal parking and underage use of golf carts w/o adult supervision. Deputies Tim Adkins and Chad Roswell are eager to meet you and look forward to working in our community to make all of us that live here feel safe and secure. Please take the time to introduce yourself and welcome/thank them for serving our community.
Please lock the court and turn off the lights after you are done. As a reminder,
any activity inside that area other than tennis or basketball is not permitted.

We look forward to a great 2015 for Dolphin Bay!
Your Board has heard your demand for improved covenant compliance over the past several years. The BOD agrees with you that Covenant compliance must be a key initiative for your Board. It is only through this process we will transform Dolphin Bay back into the pearl of Panama City Beach. Countless proud owners have made it clear to the Board that they want our covenants enforced.
To that end, your CCAC will perform a review of all properties for compliance to Dolphin Bay covenants and will continue send out letters to all home owners whose property shows significant violation.
If you receive a notice that points out a violation we urge you to bring your property into compliance according to the bylaws of Dolphin Bay.
For detailed information on the processes and goals of the CCAC visit the HOA Committees page.
Channel 10 Online!!!
The presentation that Dolphin Bay residents see on their Knology cable channel 10 is now available online (use digital channel 5-2). Visit the Documents page for immediate viewing.
