Public Works...Working for You!

TLA/TLC Quarterly Lagoon Meeting

Sean Burgess, Amber Capps and Jason Alstad met with Chris Steigelman and Tyson Helsel on Tuesday to discuss lagoon maintenance and other upcoming events across the island.  Staff from both entities are working together to address a sink hole along the TLC path at the 7th tee of the Marshwood golf course.  TLA staff contacted Southeast Pipe to conduct a camera inspection of the storm drainpipe in that area to determine the exact location of the failure.  Staff also discussed the upcoming Korn Ferry tournament and the maintenance that TLA intends to conduct in Deer Creek to prepare for the week-long golf tournament.  The common property maintenance includes the early application of pine straw to the Deer Creek gate and center islands, flower change outs, etc.

Monument Signage Lighting and Light Pole Repairs

Due to the excessive amount of rainfall that we have received over the last couple of weeks, Evans Electric was unable to complete the electrical work at the North Gate (Marshwood) monument sign, the Oakridge Gatehouse sign and the light poles around the Landings Harbor picnic grounds.  Barring any further weather delays, Evans Electric anticipates completion of these lighting repairs by March 4.

Dog Park Improvements

Staff from each sub-department in Public Works were on deck at the Dog Park this week to complete drainage improvements and install decomposed granite along the walkways and around the benches.  The construction and environmental crews removed vegetation around the park to provide adequate space for the installation of a new drainage system.  This new system was installed to help improve overall drainage and water ponding in the parking lot and surrounding areas.  Staff will continue to monitor the system and make improvements as needed.  The facilities crew also installed decomposed granite around the park and filled large holes in the turfed areas to help rejuvenate and restore growth.
