12. Park Chairman Report
Gabe reported that all new keys operate the tennis court, pool and boar ramp.
About 60 keys have been issued to date. If someone needs a key for an empty lot,
it’s $80/yr. Tennis court lock is in bad shape.
Dale Reed & Marcus Flake’s friend volunteered to weld the gate at the boat ramp.
During the freeze, Paul spotted a leak at the storage barn. It was repaired.
Gabe would like to hand over Park Chairman duties this summer when the board
members change. Pool coping still needs to be done.
David C got an estimate from Tony Sanchez for tennis court repair. It would cost
$550/sf ($30,000) and the work would not be guaranteed due to the lack of rebar in
the existing slab. The idea being looked at now is to use half the court for pickle ball
and the other half for basketball.
