Unfinished Business

A. Engineer design plans for proposed pond restructuring and flow of run off water to the pond presentation: Project Delivery Group (PDG) gave a presentation regarding the design plans to the
Board of Directors and members present. During the discussion period members suggested that it is important to determine what the sub strata rock level is, and knowing this would help guide which
direction the project takes. For example, we may simply excavate out the big pond to acquire the desired depth. We are going to explore dredging/excavating the pond basin low enough to help resolve the algae problem while maintaining enough of the natural “liner” above the bed rock to prevent undermining the berm.

B. Commons Maintenance progress report: Prograss has now started the maintenance of both sides of the stair case from Shelokum down to Chee Chee.

C. Lunch Table Replacement Board agreed to replace the table near the playground and will check on the price for a replacement table.
