General Manager’s Report

Annual Election Mailing

Lake Holiday Office Staff will begin work on the annual election mailing tomorrow, Wednesday September 16th.  The office will be closed Wednesday through Friday September 18th to allow staff time to print, stuff, label, and mail the approximately 1500 election packets.  The office will reopen by appointment on Monday September 21, 2020.

Dog Park Update

Work on the LHCC Dog Park was able to resume on September 9th after Aqua completed locating the sewage forced main running through the property.  As of today, the fence posts are set, and fencing should begin to go up later today or tomorrow.  Weather permitting, and barring any unforeseen circumstances, the fencing should be completed later this week.

Damaged LHCC 2011 Dump Truck

On Friday September 11, 2020, the LHCC 2011 Ford dump truck was hit by another driver who lost control of their vehicle.  The occupants were uninjured. The truck is currently at Malloy Collison Center being evaluated.  The truck did suffer frame damage, but the extent of that damage and its repairability will not be ascertained until a thorough evaluation has been completed by Malloy.  The truck involved is the workhorse of the LHCC fleet and is relied upon heavily by the maintenance crew in their daily activities. With this in mind, we are hopeful that it can be repaired and put back into service quickly.  I will update the Board when we have more information regarding its condition.

Beach III Area Issues Reported

Staff continues to receive reports from members regarding undesirable, disruptive and prohibited activities in the beach III area.  This week we have received reports of overnight camping on beach III, fireworks being launched from the beach at night (on Saturday 9/12), and a number of reports regarding ongoing littering in that general area.

Fireworks remain prohibited in all areas within Lake Holiday, and overnight camping is not allowed in any common areas other than the designated camping spots at beach II (by permit only). We ask that all members observe and respect these restrictions for the benefit of the membership.

Upcoming Scheduled Repairs/Work

Wilson’s Asphalt Repair is scheduled to restripe the speed humps throughout Lake Holiday around the first week of October (an exact date has not been set).  The striping will include the application of reflective silica grit which will help make the humps more readily visible for night drivers. 

Wilson’s has also been contacted regarding filling asphalt cracks and sealing the front gate entry lanes as well as remarking all pavement in that area.  At this point, they are behind on the season and depending upon the weather later this fall, may or may not be able to get to this portion of the work this year.  If not, we will schedule the work for spring instead, but are hopeful that we can have it completed prior to cold weather.

E.R. Neff Excavating is scheduled to be onsite around the end of this month to begin some improvements on the south side emergency exit road. Primarily this work will focus on correcting/improving drainage issues which are negatively impacting the roadway, followed by some surface grading of portions of the road itself, along with the addition of stone as necessary.

The Maintenance crew will begin pressure washing/cleaning, and then, staining the Clubhouse deck in the coming weeks in order to provide additional surface protection for the coming winter.  The deck surface is showing its age at this point with checking, board deterioration, etc., but with the replacement of a few planks, and continued sealing, the surface should be able to make it a few more years before total replacement is necessary.  The surface is currently scheduled (tentatively) for replacement in 2025 according to the approved Replacement Reserve plan.

Respectfully submitted by:

Mike Goodwin, LHCC GM
