CLUBHOUSE & GYM

: The Browns Fitness equipment specialists came and installed the hew cables needed for the equipment in need of worn cable replacement. The foot straps that they brought out to replace were the wrong ones. They ordered the ones needed for the stationary bikes in need of foot pedal straps and they will install the new ones when they come in on order.

POOL & POOL DECK AREA

: We had the pool inspection on 2-15-2019 and all was A-OKAY. the only thing that needed corrected was the safety rings (LIFE PRESERVERS) needed replacement due to the fact that the elements had deteriorated the ones that we had in place. Brevard Pools was made aware of this situation and they will be installing new ones (2) count on Monday February 18th, 2019. The chemical levels were spot on and we passed with flying colors other than the safety rings replacement.

IRRRIGATION [Updates provided by Insight Irrigation LLC.]

: The only thing to report is the main line was relocated at the Wilson residence rear of property 689 Monterey to be able to excavate for swimming pool installation. The irrigation system for the SFH was (SHUT-OFF) during this procedure / curing of pipe as well.

LANDSCAPING & LIGHTING

Nothing to report at this time.

LAKES

Nothing to report at this time.

LAKE FOUNTAINS

: It is my understanding that if we use any 500-watt bulbs in this application we will have to use a larger wattage breaker. This can be accomplished, but by up-grading the wattage of the bulbs and breaker adds to putting unnecessary stain on the wiring harness that is not made to carry this type of current / load. The costs of doing this change-over would be expensive even temporarily we would perhaps damage the wiring harness completely. This is a situation that needs to be addressed by the Board of Supervisors. This needs to be installed in the agenda for the BOS to make this determination. Respectfully, Randy McGrath (FMCA).
Randy,

Based on what I can tell, our recommendation is to wait until the vendor is able to locate a suitable, lower cost alternative. He has committed to letting us know. I have no issue holding on the item at this stage, even with the lights out. It makes no sense to spend that amount money on this upgrade, if there is a lower cost option. I would not recommend presenting it to the Board as an option, but letting them know what we intend to do. I totally agree Jason, I am on the same page as you, there is no need in spending the extra costs for a temporary fix that might cause internal damage to the wiring harness. There is no option for the BOS to discuss but this information needs to go out to the community explaining why we are in the holding pattern awaiting more information at this juncture.

STREETS & SIDEWALKS

Nothing to report at this time.

GATES & WALLS

: We recently had a GLITCH on the entrance gate at Shearwater entrance. This happened during the change over time when the gate operator is changing to open /close regular cycle at the same time the rush hour traffic was in full swing. It had just started the cycle when the weather began to pour rainfall, along with the influx of continual demands as residents were all entering the open command to the gate controller. Normally when this happens it take about 5 minutes to clear itself of repeated commands. Eventually it cleared it’s memory and began normal open /close cycle. All is well now,
