May 2019 – ROADS AND MAINTENANCE

Hats off again to our Maintenance crew as they (as well as numerous volunteer members) successfully moved the underutilized Star Dock from its former location on the west side of the lake, all the way to the south end of the lake at Cove Nine. If you haven’t seen the new improved location and the refurbished Star Dock, take a look at it when you can – you will be very pleasantly surprised. 

The Maintenance crew has been busy filling potholes around the Community and adding rock to some of the washed out shoulders on the roads. Now that grass growing season is here, they have to run to keep up with that responsibility as well. Give them a friendly wave when you see them, but please do not stop them from their progress as they have very tight schedules. If you notice an issue that needs repair, please fill out a Maintenance Request form at the Office. That way we can keep track of them and do our best to get them completed. 

A tip of our caps to the Booster Club who has donated funds for street signs (to be installed soon by generous volunteers); also for funding a new weed trimmer and backpack blower; and for reimbursing us for the installation of the new water softener at the Community Center. Additionally, they have funded two new tires for the Red Maintenance truck and tires for the oil spreader. And, with input from numerous lake members, there was need for reduced driving speeds, especially along stretches of Lakeshore Drive. A new set of street barriers will be placed on Lakeshore Drive or elsewhere as needed before the summer season. The barriers will include signage warning drivers of these barriers. Please observe the warnings – both pedestrians and drivers should be aware of each other – especially along those dangerous stretches.
