1. A traffic stripe has been painted on the entrance roadway for increased safety. There have been collisions and many near misses at the entrance. Drivers unfamiliar with the entry will now have clearer traffic guidelines which we hope will increase safety.
2. New sewage pump installed. Cost $6,000.
3. Four thousand plus perennial plants and pachysandra have been planted.
4. Irrigation system repairs made because of wear and tree roots and soil shifting.
5. The replacement of shingles on chimney chases continues. On some buildings, additional work is needed on upper furnace chimneys and the walls behind and in front of the chimneys. Shingles in these areas wear out first because of greater exposure to the elements.
6. Trees removed because of ice storm damage in early spring. $10,000.
7. Cedar dumpster surrounds installed. Bollards installed to prevent the dumpsters from breaking the cedar walls.
