Managers' Report:Hello and good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend!
Last week we experienced a power outage during the night and some homes were without power for several hours. Some of our owners have medical needs such as oxygen machines that have battery backups but cannot run indefinitely without power. In the event that the power goes off at night security will open the clubhouse for owners who need electricity for medical needs. Keep in mind that the front office has a standby generator, so if the power goes out the security guard on staff may not notice immediately. If your power goes out and you need access to the clubhouse for medical needs please call security at 863-604-4321.
John will be adding the permanent lot markers this week to the storage lots that were recently filled in the storage area. The orange painted lines are not the actual lot lines, so please disregard those. The permanent markers will be taking their place.
Shane and Beth will be repainting the interior of the post office building on the weekend. They will also be removing the carpet and painting the floor. This will be done over the course of several weekends, during off hours so it will not interfere with postal service.
This weekend an owner received a phone call from someone requesting to view their home claiming they would be here Monday morning to view some other homes. They were not clear on the purpose of their visit but it is likely a realtor or other vendor attempting to solicit business. Please let the office know if you have been solicited by this vendor and have their contact info. No vendors will be allowed in the resort for solicitation purposes.
Thank you and have a Great week!
