Managers' Report:Good Morning, I hope you have all had a great Weekend. Chad is on vacation this week so I will be giving your update today.
First and foremost, I wanted to mention if you don't already know, Tropical Storm Emily is on its way. According to meteorologist, Emily will take landfall this morning and will bring heavy rain and gusty winds to central and southern Florida through this evening. Myself and the staff will be monitoring the progression of this storm and instituting necessary procedures to prepare for the storm. We encourage all residents to be vigilant and make the necessary preparations.
The Hydro tank rehab is finished and the water system is being pressure regulated by the tank again. The rehab went very smoothly and the tank looks great. Bathhouse 2 had the active water leak before the roofs were repaired. Now that the repairs are done we have had several contractors in to take a look at the drywall damage that was done and provide estimates for repairs as well as the bathroom tile damage. Maintenance has repainted the grey deck leading into the clubhouse between the clubhouse and memorial hall. Early next week we will be repainting the dark brown exterior wall surrounding the deck, it currently has some chipping and flaking. As you know we had several owners that have drainage concerns for their property that have been reported during the season. We collected video recordings of the reported areas and mapped out the areas where there are issues during some of the heavy rains we have had. Based off that info maintenance installed berms in front of most of the properties this past week. We ask the owners that were affected and we installed the berms to please let us know if there are any further issues. Tonight's rainfall should be an excellent opportunity to test these berms. 2 of the properties will need further help in the form of French drains and Ray will be installing those drains in the upcoming weeks.
As an accounting update, the fiscal year end audit is complete. Auditors are finalizing the binding of the report and it should be available for owner request this week.
Thank you, stay dry, and have safe week!
