Another month has gone by. This past month has been crazier than a roller coaster gone off the rails. I pray everyone continues to be safe and no-one has had to endure the loss of a friend or loved one.
The maintenance dept has once again been very busy. Before COVID-19 hit, the focus was trying to get things done prior to the return of seasonal traffic. Well, needless to say, our game plan has changed. We will be working more toward maintaining the common grounds, potholes, etc and maybe being able to work in a few other odd jobs (Such as re-cabling the rails along the dam, fixing the tennis courts, developing a pickleball court, etc).
In addition, we lost Matt to medical complications, so we are operating a short one. Joe Modray and Walt Koyn are coordinating things. Walt has already been out trying to keep up with grass cutting in our common areas and the guys have dressed up the beach and the dam ready for the warm weather. It really looks nice. I’d tell you to give them a pat on the back, but don’t forget social distancing. You will just have to do it virtually.
The boards were installed at the dam to raise levels and repairs have been made to many of the docks. If we missed any spots, let us know via a work request. You can get that form on the website at ilpoa.org.
The guys have also been busy on a number of projects over the past month including:
Pending projects include:
I know most of us are practicing this thing called social-distancing, but even when we get by this COVID-19 issue I am asking your help in not approaching the guys and engaging in conversation. They have been told this is not an authorized activity while on the clock. With limited manpower and financial resources, we can’t afford that luxury.
Thanks for your continued support. Stay safe!!
