ILPOA Roads & Maintenance Update

Information below proved by Gary Campbell, Roads & Maintenance Chair

  • Equipment Status
    • Obtained new salt spreader (paid by Booster Club). Prepped second truck to carry same. Both salt spreaders are currently operational.
    • Worked on skid loader to repair hydraulic valve. Valve is at a shop in St James for rework.
    • Worked to repair Kubota tractor that broke during brush removal on dam. Because of its age, can’t get parts. Welded and rebuilt old part. Completed.
    • Repaired hydraulic leak at lift ram white truck.
    • Installed protective screen and set up skid loader for brush-arm attachment.
    • Performed periodic services and cleaned equipment following salt applications.
  • Potholes
    • The weather hasn’t been the greatest in the past month, but when it has cooperated, we have been out on Lakeshore, Pontiac, Pawnee, Whitehawk, Big Bear, Sanchez and a few others patching potholes. Sanchez was a bit more than just potholes as it got plugged and washed out during one of our heavier rains.
    • When the weather allows, we will continue our efforts with the potholes and our hope is that by Memorial weekend, might have them in fairly decent shape—weather permitting!!
  • Community Center Venting
    • Modifications to the venting prior to the first pancake breakfast on Memorial Weekend. Bid of $450 for labor and parts to be picked up by the Men’s Club.
  • To-do’s
    • Culvert replacements (50 plus needing this). Many old medal culverts have rusted and are eroding under the existing culvert. Plan to replace the worst ones on the most crucial/heavily traveled roads as soon as weather allows.
    • Gas regulator replacements/install at Community Center
    • Tire disposal-Joe has found a place in town who will do same for $3/tire.
    • Tennis court repair
    • Warm weather projects such as buoy reinstall, installation of flotation device at cove 9, cut shoulders to improve runoff.
