Process and standards for obtaining bids and awarding contracts for projects - BOD will develop and communicate to the community.

Issues at entry

  • Irrigation System & Lighting - Lara Foreman worked with Henson Irrigation on this project. The conduit running under Avocet drive at the entry connecting both systems was located so the price was $7,180. The combined CRA budget for both projects is $7,500, so we will be under budget.
  • Landscape Plan - Lara & Jeanne will be working together to develop the plan for the entry. The BOD will also obtain bids on cleaning and painting the fence along SOP and part way up Lou Ivey. This will require permission from the homeowners. Rob Hiller has agreed to submit a bid for this.


Landscape issues

  • Prospective contractors interviewed - contract awarded to Precision Landscaping.
  • Approve Rob's contract extension. Robin said the document looked fine.
  • Rob Hiller has decided to focus on his residential business. The BOD will be making a decision on a new landscape contractor in January.
  • Need to do one time cleanup - Rob & Lara are working together on clean up issues for the next few months. Initial focus on entry to prepare for new landscape installation - will be taking out bamboo.

Lara working with Henson Irrigation to restart irrigation system in amenities area. 14 zones. Electricity cut by Drainage Solutions, leaks in pipes found and repaired. Need no parking zone along pool - pipes broken by cars parking on grass. Estimated between $1,485 and $1,885 to restart.

December inspection letters never sent. January inspection set for the 16th. Letter sent to 4980 Avocet Drive for weeds.
