Tree Trimming Contract
The tree trimming contract with West
Coast Arborists is underway. They’re a little behind due to storm clean up.
They’re taking inventory and mapping trees for our data base. They’re
doing a good job and have multiple crews out to finish up. Also, the after-hours
emergency storm response only took 40 minutes from the initial call, to the
crew being on site. We’re very pleased with their work and response overall.
The Lake well pump failed and
we’ve had to replace it, the 300 ft. drive shaft, pipe casing and bearings
through an emergency purchase order. The motor is fine and some pipe casing
doesn’t need to be replaced. The new pump should be in place by approximately
August 16th, 2018.
