Modern Security has been out here at the Clubhouse and installed several additional security cameras concentrating on ares of concern. The front parking lots, east side of Clubhouse area pool equipment, and a panoramic view if the Playground. I have noticed that there are two cameras not displaying clear visuals at both entrance gates coming in off of Shearwater Parkway & off of South Patrick. Blurry?? The vendor that reconditioned the Clubhouse front door will be out on 10/27 to pressure wash the ceilings of front entryways and treating and conditioning / sealing front door. He will also be taking a look as to what can be done to recondition the pool table top wood of the pool table. The Satellite Beach Fire Rescue came on 10-14-21 and Reinspect that our fire extinguishers were current and we passed the inspection.


The design of the pedestrian gates has been an issue as the design of the gate supports being inadequate to carry the weight of the gates. The latch assemblies have been destroyed and done damage where the latch es are attatched to the gates as shown in the group of photos. Even though the gate control arms have helped with the slamming issues as the gate comes to rest. The damage to the gates has already been done already. I beleive it's time make strides to revamp the pedestrian gates situation, to find a vendor, take quotes and remedy this problem.

Thank you Larry Bradshaw for your oversight of this issue, I won't let you down going forward. (Randy) (DFS).


A 4' X 6' pad was poured on and next to the mail boxes on Redondo Drive. Evidently this pad was not counter-sunk deep enough into the ground and will need to replace this pour of concrete or build up this area up with fill dirt and re-sod up to concretes edge with a gradual slope. What-ever it takes to make this right

A special thanks goes out to Catherine and Dana for their pain staking task of setting up and organizing my office this week. This was no picnic for sure. Thank you thank you.


The street light pole bases have taken much abuse from the landscaping crew hitting these bases with their lawn equipment. Over the years these bases are in need of some repairs. I have purchased materials to make some of the damaged bases (REPAIRS) I counted at least 6 light pole bases that are repairable. It was discussed that the ones that simply can not be repaired, to remove the damaged bases all together and just paint these ones as is. I would like to at least try the repairs first.


Secured bases to several street sign poles, caulk, prime and paint bases as needed


Both fountains at the entrance and exit at Shearwater Parkway areas were brushed and chemicals were replenished at the feeders as needed. Several street signs bases have been refastened to sign pole. cleaned up and primed (BLACK) for future paint scheme black

I had the new keys made up for the new locks for the PUMP STATION #1 and PUMP STATION #2 . All of the necessary personnel will be given keys for these locks. The WIFI access points have been installed, shelving has been completed to support the WIFI equipment. The WIFI in the Clubhouse is fully Functional , thanks go out to Larry Bradshaw for his due diligence in this matter.


The fencing around both pump stations #1 and #2 are complete. next week I will be handing out the keys to the locks that have been purchased to all of the necessary personnel who should have keys. Mr. Henson and Mr. Wellman will also be given keys to these pump stations too. The new cameras are functioning fine at this time. Wow what a difference!


The fence for Pump Station #1 was completed today August 10, 2018 by Brevard Fence and Rail Company. There are 2 gate entrances to this PS#1, there is one to be able to service the pump housing enclosure / and decoders area, There is also a gate to access the well#1 shut off and read meter access too. The signage will be installed on Monday 8/13/18 by myself Randy McGrath. The new cameras system was installed this week by Modern Security. The work was done in a safe workman type manner and done with care and professionalism. Thanks go out to Frank and Dominic for a job well done. Randy McGrath


Pump station #2 fence was completed on 7/31/2018. Pump station #1 was started today Friday 8/3/2018 and should be completed on Monday 8/6/2018. The design of the pump station #1 had to be changed somewhat. The new design was altered to make it easier for the irrigation personnel to gain access to the controllers / pump house. I had to bring Tree Tech Pros in on Saturday 8/4/2018 to trim up and remove some trees / vegetation. They are going to trim, remove trees / haul away all debris for $150.00 The alteration of enclosing all irrigation equipment, well #1 shut off valve and the huge electrical transformer as well. This design was changed by myself (Randy McGrath) to make this a more confined yet safer controlled area. The Changes made for including the Transformer within this pump station area were very cost effective. $395.00 This area will only be entered by authorized personnel only. I honestly believe these changes were in the best interests of safety. Thank You Kindly Randy McGrath


Superior Fence Company will be here to install fence around pump station #2 on Tuesday July 31,2018. They should complete this scope of work on that day. Pump station #1 has been bid already, we need the Board to approve and okay the fence to be installed around PS #1. If the approval is made at the board meeting on August 1,2018, Superior would be able to schedule this scope of work on PS #1 to be installed on August 2,2018. This task of coordinating both pump stations to be done back to back has been challenging to say the least. Safety is the main issue here folks, and my recommendation is to have this scope of work done ASAP. All of the necessary signage has already been purchased and ready to post upon the completion of fences.


The wall around pump station #2 painting is 95% completed. Just a few areas around the power panels on wall need to be cut in around with paint. Picked up and installed 40 bags of pine bark mulch, spread mulch around as needed. There have been severe rain / thunder storms recently, they were very aggressive (NOT NORMAL) type lightning / power surges. This has caused breakers to be tripped on fountain #4 and fountain #5. After resetting / reenergizing breakers and resetting power boxes, Check operation, all okay now.


The pump station #2 beautification project: The painting of the wall of around PS #2 was completed and mulch was purchased and installed as needed in areas surrounding pump house/wall areas. I contacted Superior Fence and Rail about when we would expect the new fencing to be installed. There was a miscommunication about whether or not that we needed a permit for these fencing projects. It turns out YES we needed permits for both pump stations #1 and #2. Once the red tape is completed, they will contact us back with their scheduling dates.


The painting continues on wall around pump station #2 area near playground..

The palm trees at both entryways Shearwater & South Patrick were trimmed and cleaned up of all twisted / broken prongs from Hurricane IRMA. Also trimmed and cleaned up all of the damaged palm tree prongs in (t,e common areas of the Clubhouse. There was a Royal Palm that did not survive the damages from the Hurricane IRMA, that was located at the
North side of the exit area of South Patrick outside the gates, closest to the roadway. All palm waste was hauled off by the vendor Tree Tech Pros. It is only fair to mention that the crew from Tree Tech Pros conducted the scope of work in a safe, clean, professional, and workman, type manner from start to finish. Thank you kindly Tree Tech Pros, your hard work was
much appreciated.

The work on the playground will be starting soon; as some of the materials such as the plastic safety caps for the fence pickets were ordered. One hundred caps were available for pick up. The caps will be painted to match the fencing color.

The railings that need to be replaced have also been ordered. Mr. Wellman and myself removed the bad rusted ones and will be installing the new railings when they arrive here soon.


The bids have been taken for the painting of the (44)existing street lights and poles/(10) sign poles street signs, changing the color from brown to black satin finish to match the new sections color codes.

Projects Status: Ceiling on patio has been put up for bid to stain and seal ceiling on both front entryways game room/fitness room entryways ceilings. I have two bids for labor only ($1600.00) The cost of stain /sealer $300.00. Total job $1900.00. Originally I was going to do the labor, but this job should be professionally done in my opinion because of lappage absorption issues is beyond my expertise. Randy McGrath (FMCA).
