The Clubhouse painting of 8 exterior doors continues and the replacement of 8 lock assemblies and 8 crash bars also has been completed thus far. There are 4 more exterior doors remaining to complete this project. CDA Solutions are the locksmith company doing the installs of the lock assemblies and crash bars for us. The painting has been done by yours truly Randy McGrath (DFS). There are 3 exterior doors waiting to be retrofitted on the patio with new locks and crash bars and the one left to do on the main Clubhouse front entry.


There have been several complaints from certain residents about the rust / black spots on the pool floor. The tech from Brevard pools has treated these spotting area, but to no avail these spots are stubborn and continuing to reappear. On Tuesday September 8,2020 the pool will be closed in order to shock the pool with a stronger concentration of Chlorine. A Super shock on Tuesday and a neutralization of the chlorine late afternoon on Wednesday to bring the chlorine levels back down in order to make the pool swimmable once again. In doing this treatment should remove the spotting issues that have been manifesting on the pool floor. This is an attempt to rid the pool of rust / black spots once and for all. The gates to the pool will be Zipped ties shut and signage will be posted informing the residents of the pools closing Tuesday 8.2020 during this time there will be absolutely NO SWIMMING IN THE POOL AT ALL until Thursday morning after the neutralization takes place and that the chlorine levels are safe enough to swim in.

IRRRIGATION [Updates provided by Insight Irrigation LLC.]

Dear Board Members,

Staff has determined that due to an electrical issue, likely a lightning strike, we have a need for new irrigation controllers on Pump Station 1. We currently have no irrigation available until these controllers are replaced. We solicited quotes from both Irrigation Insight ($5,500 for 1 new controller that can replace the three that are down) and one from Paradise (either $10,900 or $12,350). I am attaching both proposals. We have sufficient funds in our FY 20 operating funds to cover the repair costs, as we have only spent through July $10,080 in irrigation repairs out of a budget of $35k.

It is our recommendation to immediately proceed with Irrigation Insight due to their expertise on repairs like this, and the considerable cost savings. We would like to authorize the expense, but wanted to see if the Board has any objections to staff proceeding with Irrigation Insight. Although we have been getting rain, we would like to restore service to the SF side ASAP. Let me know if you have any questions, and if we do not receive any objections, we will proceed with authorizing this tomorrow. Thanks and have a good day. Unfortunately I was left out of the loop on the irrigation issues and I have nothing to report This is what I did find out : Randy McGrath (DFS)
