Beautification – Clare Cook
Emerald Ash Borer – Rod Davis will inspect the common area ash trees this fall to determine which ones are healthy and would be worth the cost of treating against emerald ash borer next spring, if we choose treatment.
Pool Committee – Clare Cook
A new water fountain was installed in July. Kevin will store it in his basement this winter.
The pool cover is being repaired. Clare will get bids to have the baby pool painted before the pool is open next summer. The pool checkers have done a good job this summer.
Lora from Pinnacle Pools contacted Clare to see if we wanted to use them next summer. Emily made motion to hire Pinnacle Pools next summer. Clare seconded the motion. All approved. Clare will get a contract from Lora.
Clare said that the pool area has electrical problems. Some plugs and switches do not work. There are problems with the timers and sensors. Clare has received 2 bids which are about the same price. After discussion, Ron made the motion that we give Clare the approval to hire an electrician after she met with them. Emily seconded the motion.
We will close the pool on September 9, 2013.
