Budget Bits - July
Posted on Jul 13th, 2020
by Mike Bossio
 
Same old boring stuff but our financials continue to progress as planned. The July 1 Operating Fund sits at $161,445.58, up from $179,021.92 June 1. With the June deposit of $14,226.17 plus interest, the Reserve Fund now stands at $1,066,228.68, up from $1,051.914.46 last month.
The Reserve Fund actual amount of $1,066,228.68 for June compares to the Reserve Advisors Anticipated June Reserves of $952,155 (calculated). This calculated amount is based on linear extrapolation of the elements that make up the Anticipated Reserves, namely, Recommended Contribution, Earned Interest, and Anticipated Expenditures. We are exceeding the RA Anticipated Reserves by 11.2% YTD.
I will, of course, continue to keep you apprised of our performance on a monthly basis.
LANDSCAPE UPDATE as of 5-20-20
Posted on May 23rd, 2020
By Gayle Hinman
  • Lawn mowing will normally be done on Wednesdays. BUT if it’s been raining & the lawns are wet the mowing date will be changed.
    Example:  too much rain this week so mowing has been postponed until Friday
  • First lawn cutting & removal of leaves occurred last week.
  • Pre-emergent application for grubs & crabgrass was not done due to the “shut down”. The window for the crabgrass was missed therefore, can-not be applied. Grubs will be addressed in a post-emergent application.
  • 1 out of 4 lawn fertilizations occurred last week.
  • Some of the weeding hours were used last week in some areas.
  • Decorative grasses throughout the front entrance were cut last week.
  • Winter clean up done at the same time completed last week.
  • Evergreens received deep root fertilization last week.

Updates
By Gayle C. Hinman on July 30, 2020
Landscape Update: At the board meeting on 7-22-20 the board approved a number of landscape proposals which include pond beds clean-up, shrub & tree removal (& where approved replaced), miscellaneous pruning of trees on LP, Viewcrest, Viewcrest Court, and Brightwood, and on the south end of the big pond drainage clean-up will be done. The exact date has not been determined due to weather and crews. Like many companies, all the workers have not returned which has placed many contractors in difficult situations.

Concrete Update: At the same board meeting the board approved a proposal from Michigan Construction for concrete work to be done to 39 locations throughout the community. It is now planned for some time in August due to the same difficulty that Great Oaks is having to get their crews back to work.

Irrigation Update: All work is completed as work orders are received by customerservice@kramertriad.com

Deck Stain 2020 Study
By Philip Arnold on July 5, 2020
The ACC has completed an evaluation of decks stained last year to ascertain if the new stains approved last year are lasting longer. Applying "things learned" in that study, we plan to evaluate decks stained this year. At this point, we need to identify several decks stained with PPG's Flood Sierra product. This year's study requires greater detail about the pre-stain prep and the staining process. Please identify the "stainer" (and date). During prep, was a stripper applied - if so how. It can be brushed or rolled on and then washed off or the stripper can be incorporated in the power wash itself. The stripper is generally followed by a neutralizer applied directly or in the power wash. Was the entire deck stripped - sometimes the verticals are only cleaned. Sanding - any "heavy" sanding or just touchup. How was the stain applied - brush, spray, pad, roller or combinations thereof. Please forward the info to jammer3501@aol.com. Thanks for your cooperation.
