MANAGER'S REPORT—Art Burke
Planning and preparation of the 2016 budget has been underway for approximately 4 weeks. A draft will be presented to the Trustees on October 22nd.
After a one year period of service we have completed our involvement of providing statistical information to the Department of Labor. These once a month surveys involved a phone call where information concerning number of employees, wages, supervisory versus nonsupervisory, etc. were reported.
A meeting between Double D Electric, a WA State electrical inspector and Stewart Pugh took earlier this month to review plans for the installation of a new control system for the Highlands pump station. This system was developed by Stewart and will allow for better control of the pumps that create pressure in the water lines serving the Highlands area. The inspector was impressed with the design and assured us that he would have no problem signing off on the project once completed according to plans.
After further review it was determined that hand dryers in the pool changing rooms will be significantly more expensive than anticipated.
Projects being worked on by the Caretaker and Assistant Caretaker: Exterior and interior prep work continues in anticipation of the Office building being painted later this month. The surface of the Fred Evans Trail was worked on to remove numerous tripping hazards. The concrete stairs at the rear of the office building were replaced.
I have received the following reports/complaints over the past month: Complaint of Clubhouse event being advertised in a manner against Cape George rules. Numerous reports of coyotes in the Colony. Hedge complaint in the Colony.
