Marsh Observation Tower Repairs
On Thursday, Powers Building Solutions completed the necessary repairs to address the structural concerns between the first and second landing of the Marsh Observation Tower’s stairs. The tower is now open for community use.
As a reminder, Coffey Utility, a subcontractor for Georgia Power, will begin the replacement of the high-pressure sodium streetlight fixtures (which are no longer manufactured) with new LED fixtures on Monday. The contractor will start at the south end of the island near Delegal Marina and progress northbound. Coffey Utility expects to replace 10 - 20 light fixtures per day. Barring any significant delays, the project is anticipated to be completed by the end of July. As previously reported, the Association will not incur any additional costs associated with these upgrades.
2020 Community Path Project
Absolute Concrete continued with the demolition and pouring of the new concrete path located from Shellwind Drive to the Deer Creek Clubhouse this week. Weather permitting, this section of path is scheduled to be completed by mid-next week. Thereafter, Absolute Concrete will progress to the path located between Stargrass Retreat and Sedgewater Retreat.
Georgia Historical Marker at the Monastery Site
On Thursday, Sean Burgess and Amber Capps met with Laura Seifert, Founder and Director of Savannah Archaeological Alliance along with Mike Dillon and Bob Ciucevich with Benedictine Military School. The meeting included a discussion about the application for the Georgia Historical Marker at the Monastery Site located at the intersection of Breckenridge Lane and Priest Landing Drive. The application is due on July 1 and will be submitted by Laura, Mike, and Bob with an official review in October of 2020. Staff will continue to keep the Board and community updated as new information is received.
2020 Road Repair and Replacement Project
Gene Chervenak of Thomas & Hutton, completed his inspection of the roads within the 2020 program. Gene submitted his feedback to staff in writing which were positive. All punch list items have been completed by Bennett Paving, thus completing the 2020 project.
Storm Drainpipe Repair
Southeast Pipe was onsite this week for an emergency clearing of the storm drainpipe located on Chatuachee Crossing as our in-house equipment was unable to clear the obstruction. Once cleared, Southeast Pipe will video the pipe and submit a report for review by in-house staff.
McWhorter Community Path Bridge Repairs
On Thursday, Powers Building Solution replaced 5 sections of hand railing on the McWhorter community path bridge. The bridge was closed to all pedestrian and golf cart users during these repairs.
Delegal Fuel Line Replacement
The excessive rainfall that we received late last week adversely affected the Delegal fuel line replacement project. Meco of Savannah was required to reinstall the fuel line sumps as the heavy rainfall caused the project area to flood. All lines/sumps were successfully reinstalled this week and pressure testing will be conducted today. Meco is scheduled to meet with the concrete sub-contractor by the end of this week and will provide a timeline for completion of this portion of the project thereafter. At this time, all fuel lines, and pumps at Delegal are operational.
