Managers' Report:Good Morning, I hope you have all had a great Weekend.
Four Corners Fence has been working on the perimeter fence. They have torn down the section of fence that is being replaced. Friday they dug the new post holes, and will be mounting the posts, stretching wire, and hanging the fence material this week. They expect to be finished by Thursday the 31st barring setbacks from bad weather.
Even though Hurricane Harvey isn't directly threatening us, I've had many owner's ask last week what we plan on doing to prepare. Those who asked I gave a copy of our hurricane prep checklist, but I figured it was a good time to review the preparations your staff does when we are directly threatened by a hurricane.
