Larry Bakirtjy requested to update the posted beach/park rules. A draft of the requested changes will be presented for review. A revision to the Rules and Regulations will also need to be presented to coincide with any revised beach/park rules.
Fred Aichele reported that a member was doing some work that required their water to be shut off. The buffalo box (BB) appeared to be damaged. Additional inspection and help was required. There was a discussion of the BB location finding project. It was reported that the project went fairly well.
Many BB have been located and mapped in the GIS (Geographical Information System) which will be made available to the WSPC board. Anomalies have been noted. There will be a future discussion regarding testing, possibly raising buried BBs to street level, the possible disconnection of unused BBs, and repairs of damaged connections. Mike Davenport will follow-up with Water Commissioner Brett Laureys for additional information and status. Next discussion tentatively scheduled for the next board meeting.
There was a discussion regarding the documents needed to be provided to legal counsel to confirm property location and accuracy of the recorded titles.
Larry Bakirtjy requested to schedule the survey of WSPC common property in order to begin confirming and marking property location.
Werner Brisske reported that the inspection of a section of the block 2 seawall weep holes appear to have helped drain some excess ground moisture and has helped dry out an area of WSPC property that had been continuously soggy. Additional attention to the weep holes and area may be needed and will be inspected regularly.
