Public Works...Working for You!
This week, staff continued working on evaluating and removing hazardous trees along the community path that runs alongside Landings Way South. Areas along the same path with little to no ground cover are also being evaluated as areas to use beneficial reuse material from the street sweeping program. This will provide a more aesthetically pleasing look than bare earth while also helping the erosion of soils.
TLA Administration Building
On Friday, Eckard Flooring installed the new carpet squares in the Administration Lobby. Several weeks ago, staff discovered a water leak in the Lobby area, wherein the carpet was subsequently damaged. The new carpet squares match the carpet that was installed in the conference room last year.
New Bench Donated by Skidaway Audubon Installed
On Tuesday, staff installed a new bench at the Sparrow Field that was generously donated by Skidaway Audubon. The bench is constructed of recycled materials and will require minimal maintenance for many years to come.
Delegal Marina Sunset Pavilion Ice machine
During an inspection of the Delegal Marina Sunset Pavilion rental facility this week, staff discovered that the ice machine was inoperable. Staff reached out to our service provider (Hudgins Company, Inc.) to schedule a repair. Hudgins Company Inc. was onsite Wednesday and determined the hanger for the damper arm that controls the off-cycle switch was damaged. The part has been ordered and will be installed once the contractor receives it.
Storm Drain Lining
Southeast pipe is in the process of lining eight storm drainpipes that run underneath Monastery Road. Failures were identified in these pipes during our camera inspection and are being repaired in advance of milling and repaving Monastery Road.

Staff purchased and installed two new water fountains for dogs at the Dog Park this week thanks to the generous donations of its patrons. We know the dogs and their patrons are excited about these new additions to the Park!
