Bill Gould as the new Board member representing the Club and Marina talked about limited opening of golf course off-campus and updated everyone on progress with ELS on Marina Repairs. New docks are on order, and work on the Intracoastal Seawall is currently in progress.
The Manager stated that the POA office will continue to remain closed to visitors due to Covid-19 concerns. A number of staff are still on site with others working from home. If you need help just call or email the POA office for assistance. Recent storms had caused an issue with the computer system, but those issue have now been restored.
Manager stated that the POA had previously made a decision to reduce the number of vehicle entries into the community by our vendors during the past weeks due to the Covid-19 virus. We believe this program has been successful in reducing any owners from exposure to the virus. It is now felt that each owner can be in a position to make this decision individually/collectively whether or not they want workers inside the home. As of April 22, the decision to allow contractors into individual homes, and condos will be decided by the owners or condo Boards. Please continue to use good judgement on this issue and think of others in the community who might be vulnerable.
The contract with Illustrated Properties, which manages the sales operation on side, is about to expire. The chair asked Katherine Wunder and Barry Anstine to review the current agreement and come back to the board with a recommendation to move forward.
