President’s Report January 2021
The virus continues to plague Lake Holiday office members. The staff will continue using a staggered schedule, appointments to enter the office, wearing a mask, and sanitizing the area.
Jill reports that three members of the community are interested in the Snack Shack clubhouse space. Previous vendor Crystal Thompson has again applied. Robert Austin and Brent Jackson applied for a barbeque/grill type venue, and Melissa Rivera plans a service restaurant named The Munchie Duck. The Board will review all applications.
Director Coates is working on the ventilation revisions to the Fitness Center. It would seem prudent to also investigate replacing the flooring while the area is shut down. A quote for replacement has already been submitted.
Haines Security has asked for a $2.00 increase in their billable rates. GM Mike has allowed $1.00 which was anticipated in the budget. Their multi-year contract will end this year. Hiring a new security company is a long process, requiring writing and administering an RFP, and the job description changes yearly. If the Board decides to look elsewhere for a security company, I am recommending the Safety Committee begin working with Mike to prepare an RFP for the year 2022. It would take some time to transition so preparations need be underway.
Jill has asked that all Lake Holiday Committee chairs submit a list of officers and an updated membership list to her as soon as possible.
Question for the Board – Should there be a GRAND OPENING of the dog park or just open it up unceremoniously in the spring?
