Your HOA board and Recreational Facilities Committee want to thank all of our members who have enjoyed the clubhouse pool and still complied with the mandatory regulations that the state and county have made us follow in order to keep the pool open to the public. We ask that you keep up the spirit of doing everything you can to keep the pool area safe and share your time in the pool to a maximum of 10 persons at a time, especially on weekends and the hot July days ahead.
Some of you have asked why board and RFC members have been monitoring the pool’s attendance and adherence to the state’s rules. This is because the state’s legal counsel has warned public pool operators that without a full-time pool supervisor, just posting signs and allowing self-policing would not stand up if challenged in court. Since we have no full-time staff, the county health department has advised us to have volunteers keep a log of activity in the pool. This record book must be available for inspection by the county health inspector at any time without notice.
Others have asked if the hot tub will be opened this year. I am afraid it will not. The county health inspector has ruled that the tub is too small for more than one family unit at a time. We would need a full-time lifeguard to monitor the usage since self-policing is not advised.
Again, keep up the good work in this difficult time - your HOA Board of Directors.
