The tall shrubs were installed in the area of shed to hide the storage area of the light poles / Ladders and such,. Some additional shrubs were planted on the opposite side of shed to help hide the pool equipment and such. Stepping stones were also added for a pathway for pool tech to gain access to the pool equipment. Drip lines were installed around all new shrubbery to feed new plants water as necessary. The street lights that were reported (OUT of order), were repaired by Gault Electric LLC. and are now fully functional. It seems that a wire nut had vibrated loose from all of the heavy equipment shaking the ground in the new construction are on Clemente Drive. There was also an issue at the power supply breaker panel of PS#2 / breaker loose and been separated with poor connection of buses. Due primarily with the construction and the installation of the brand ( New Pump Station) #2. There were two issues causing lights out on this circuit, having so much going on in both ends of the spectrum / areas of concern. All is well now, the street lights are functioning fine at this time.

7 street lights (OUT OF ORDER) 2 on Clemente Drive, 1 on Ventura Drive, and 4 on Redondo Drive, all the way down to the mail box area on Redondo Drive. Gault Electric LLC came out on 10/14/19 and investigated this issue and found that the photo cell functioning fine, but the transformer / relay contacts had burnt up and were in need of replacement. These street lights were on the same series / cicuit of power grid. They did not have the necessary parts to make the repairs on their truck, so they went to pick up the contacts as needed and installed them. These repairs took place in the area of Pump Station #2. All the street lights are functioning fine now.

There is a street light out of order at the intersection on Montecito Drive & Ventura Drive.

There was also a ticket generated in the Community of a half a dozen street lights not functioning on Redondo Drive in the Phase #2 section of he Townhomes all the way to the Redondo Drive mail box area. I inspected the photo cell that operates that section of street lights and found it functioning fine. I could here and see that it's engaging fine, this makes me believe that there is something else gone bad (suspect) perhaps a small transformer? Gault Electric LLC is scheduled out first thing Monday morning to check it out and make the necessary repairs

: The street light on Simeon Drive has been repaired by Gault Electric LLC Company. The underground conduits needed to be installed / and a junction box had to be installed as well. New #10 wiring had to be installed from Junction box to light pole, and new wiring was needed on the interior of light pole to light fixture. The existing wiring had been severely damaged and replacement was necessary. Checked the operation of street light, and all is well now. The costs of these repairs were absorbed by the Developer Chip Jones of Lerner.

04-12-2019

: There was a report made that two street lights were OUT OF ORDER, (1) at the South Patrick entrance NE front and (2) Simeon Drive Across from model home. Gault came out and replaced the bulb / retro-fitted over to LED type bulb. The street light on Simeon however, the conduit that feeds that particular street light had been severely damaged by the Blue H2O crew when they were doing enhancement work in that area on Simeon. Gault Electric LLC will have to schedule this scope of work in the near future. This project will have to be reconfigured by installing a junction box, new conduit run to street light pole, and completely rewire from junction box through light pole itself. When the damage took place it completely destroyed the existing wire. I spoke with the developer Chip Jones on 4/12/19 and explained this dilemma. He agreed to pay for these damages going forward.

04-06-2019

: There are now two street lights out of order (1) at the entrance of South Patrick North bulb and (2) on Simeon Drive caddy- corner from the Model Home of the year. Gault Electric LLC Company was notified and have put us on their schedule for bulb replacement sometime next week.

03-30-2019

: I detected one street light out of order at the South Patrick entrance. The norm is to wait until 2 or more street lights are in need of replacement before summoning Gault Electric LLC unless there is a street light out that would cause safety concerns.

03-23-2019

: There is one street light out of order at the entrance off South Patrick. I will need to reorder more LED bulbs as our supply is low.

: The street light on Redondo Drive behind the mailboxes has been repaired by Gault Electric LLC. It seems that the conduit / wiring for this street light were damaged while the construction of the townhomes on Redondo Drive were being completed. The damaged conduits and wiring were disconnected and new wiring was fed through from an existing junction box nearer to the proximately of the street light in question. Due to the fact that this was a construction related incident, the developer Chip Jones of LERNER was made aware of these repairs / costs on 02/08/19 in on and has agreed to pay this invoice when it comes in

02-01-2019

The street light that is behind the mailboxes on Redondo was not functioning properly. Gault Electric had just replaced a new LED bulb in this fixture last week. Gault was summoned back to investigate what was happening with this street light. I spoke with the Developer Chip Jones on the street light situation and he is going to evaluate these damages and perhaps pay for the damaged conduits and wiring. The street light and pole assembly were installed by EAU GALLEY ELECTRC CO. this week and it is working fine at this time.

The damaged street light at Carlsbad Drive and Montecito Drive was removed by Gault Electric Company LLC and taken to their shop. We were able to determine that these particular street lights are manufactured by (DABMAR Lighting Inc.) Model #GM8950 – GM8959. Gault reached out to the manufacture to try to order just the top light fixture and decorative base of these street lights. The light pole itself was still usable and not too much damage to it. Much to our surprise they were told that they did not just sell the components to these street lights, that we would have to purchase the complete street light assembly at the cost $3070.00 installed by GAULT ELECTRIC CO. In conversation with Jason Showe, he gave me another vendor Eau Galley Electric Company whom he has worked with in the past over in Bay Tree Community. The contact person there was Mike Linder, after speaking with Mike Linder this morning 01/04/2019: he told me that his supplier has a established & personal relationship with DABMAR Lighting Inc. and that he would reach out and see if indeed we could order the much needed parts for our street light through his company. Eau Galley Electric Co. He will contact me as soon as he finds out the parts availability status.

Street lights: There is one street light out of order at the intersection of Point Lobos Drive and Palos Verde Drive.
