Managers' Report: Hello and good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend!
The flow meters are still collecting data, and we got some great info over last weekend with all the rain. Talking with Steve from Central Electric they have found another area of concern near the Beach House. They also had a Data cable that went bad causing us to lose some Data. US3, the company we are renting the flow meters from agreed to let us have all 10 meters for an additional 14 days to compensate, and replaced the bad cable. Since the data that was corrupted was only from several meters and effected 3 days of readings, I feel that was very fair of them.
John has put up the metal awning to replace the cloth canopy over the entrance to the rec building. He still has to put up some flashing which he will finish today.
The walkway for the office is scheduled to be repainted next Friday, the 16th. We will be using epoxy instead of paint so it lasts longer. During Friday and that weekend while the paint dries we will have a window open in the security room open for guests to sign in and be helped through as has been done in the past.
The Clubhouse will be closed the last week of September following Koffee Klatch that Monday, September 26th -- October -1st to have the floors stripped and waxed. The clubhouse will be reopened October 2nd for Church service. The memorial hall will be closed the following week October 3rd- October 9th.
Thank you and have a Great week!
