The Clubhouse will be updating the Fire Protection monitoring system as well as updating the fire distinguishers as needed. The fitness room equipment has recently been lubricated for smoother and quieter operation. CDA Solutions sent over proposals to install exterior cover plates over existing cover plate s around the exterior lock assemblies already in place around the Clubhouse door assemblies. Proposal to rework double door lock assy. doors exit of game room door onto the porch area of Clubhouse as a separate cost. Install lock to match all the other keys between game room and fitness room. and to match all other locks in Clubhouse

The one elliptical machine in the fitness room has recently been repaired as bushings and other components has reached their working life-span. These machines are approximately 15 years old and parts sometimes wear out. While the tech from Browns fitness was hear I had him lubricate some of the other machines as we have had complaints of squeaky appraises. All is well now.

01-03-2020

On Christmas Eve, one of the elliptical machines has came apart internally within it's exterior cabinet. This happening caused a noisy operation and therefore this machine was deemed unsafe for use. Caution / danger tape, and (OUT OF ORDER) signage was posted on this piece of equipment. Browns Gym equipment services inspected this equipment and rendered it unsafe for use. The necessary parts were ordered and should be available sometime next week for repairs. The rear emergency door only was inspected by vendor CDA Solutions and the recommendation for Commercial type door be installed in place of the residential type door that is place now. The game room patio access door will also need to be reworked to have the double door to be able to keep one side of the door in a secured locking position, and to leave the free door to be fully functional with crash bar exiting. By reworking these double doors will allow us better control of the securing of this exit onto the patio area. All ten doors that exit the Clubhouse will need new cover plates installed, replacing the existing covers that are in very worn and corroded condition. The new vendor CDA Solutions will be quoting us the costs of this much needed maintenance on securing the Clubhouse here at the Montecito Beach Club. All of the A/C filters were changed on December 24,2019, These filters are changed every 3 months as needed.

12-13-19

The final preventative maintenance (PM) on all of the fitness room equipment took place this week on 12/10/19. I also had the tech make extra sure that the free-weight dumbbells' were tightened correctly /secure because there are still residents that make a practice of dropping the weights several inches from the floor. This causes the weights to become loose and may come apart, potential health risk / .landing on someones toes or feet.

The pool resurfacing project has began: I must say that SPIES POOL & Fountain are very hard working and have approached the scope of work in a professional workman type manner. I am really impressed with their work ethic and no nonsense (GET RR DONE) method. The weather has been on and off rainfall. not heavy rain but a very misty type rainfall, keeping the dusty type work down while they operated their chipping hammers removing the old tiles working throughout each days sprinkles.. The rain kept the dust down so to speak. This crew is awesome.

The pool chemical levels are spot on and the pool pump is pumping 350 GPM which is spot on for water flow with our pool system. The pool resurface scope of work is on schedule for February 3,2020 buy SPIES POOL & Fountain Company., We received written authorization from the Brevard Board of Health to begin the scope of work of pool resurfacing.

The pool pump motor has been acting up, causing the breaker to trip three times yesterday January 2,2020 This breaker was reenergized once today January 3,2020. I made contact with Mike from American Pump Company yesterday January 2,2020 and explained the situation, and he made an appointment with us for Monday January 6,2020 early as possible. The Brevard Tech Daniel cleaned the grids today January 3,2020 backflush the pool system completely. The breaker has not tripped as of yet since. I will continue to monitor this issue accordingly. A new pool timer was installed this week for the pool lighting. The timer was set to turn ON at dusk and turn OFF at daylight. The old timer had a bad timer motor.

The chemicals to the pool were checked and were found to be spot on. The pool pump is fine pumping 350 GPM also spot on The timer for the pool lighting needed start and stop tabs installed for the timer to work correctly. Installed the tabs by adjusting them accordingly, for the lights to come on at dawn 6:00 pm, and to shut off at daylight 6:00 am.

The lakes are getting pretty low recently, to the point we might utilize our CUP allowance authorized to us from the St. Johns Water Management Personnel. Of Corse we will open the Artisan wells and test the water TDS levels to determine whether or not that this water from the Artisan wells will be suitable for the irrigational needs The (TOTAL DISSOLVED SOLIDS) , such as how much salt is in these aquafers, We have 2 wells in which to draw water from. In the past we have had to utilize this CUP in order to satify our needs of water in the Community to irrigate with. This is only contingent to the facts (Is this Artisan well water suitable to irrigate with. So on Monday January 27.2020 I will check the chloride levels and if they are usable waters, I'll open the Artisan wells up. Our usable water CUP is 43,000 gallons of water allowance per day set up and agreed with the St, John Water Management organization. Let's hope that these waters will be suitable for our usage. We stopped using the Artisan Wells back in late 2018 I believe I can check with Rey Matav'e our CDD Engineer. what the chlorides readings are opposed the water standing in the lakes as of right now. If the chloride levels and the lake water chlorides are a match, then I can open the Artisan wells up. I have discussed this matter with our Engineer Rey Matav'e and he's aware what we're trying to achieve. Testing lakes chloride levels first before opening the Artisan wells water will be tested after it runs about 15 minutes, on Monday January 27,2020 If chloride levels of the lakes match

The work on the interior walls in the TH section has began, starting with pressure washing and stucco repairs as the crew from Anchor Painting preps the wall for a fresh coat of paint (Saucy Gold) is the color to match the exterior. The 18 pergolas that are on the walls throughout the Community will be removed and the necessary areas will be repaired where the pergolas rested. The pergolas were inspected by a reputable construction company (Armstrong Construction Company) and deemed unsafe, due to rusted and corroded state of the hardware. These pergolas will be reinstalled at a later date as we decide the correct Corse of action on replacement what the materials will be constructed of. We will be researching the different options we have. either pressure treated lumber or aluminum which can get really pricey. We will put this scope of work out for bid in the near future, but we will explore at least 3 different proposals from 3 different vendors
