1st Vice President (Water System)- The wells are in good operations order.  Peninsula Light will be giving us a quote for placing automatic on/off switches on pumps #2 and #4. The roof on the shed that protects the water supply is being replaced.  The new generator has been ordered for pump #2, along with a refurbished propane tank (288 gallons) for about $2425.16.  Getting quotes for installing the generator and propane tank.

2nd Vice President (Maintenance) – The environmental blocks have been put into place on the lake bank in McGowan Park.  We are three blocks short and will get these ordered as soon as possible.  Dirt will be placed behind the blocks to rebuild the fishing and picnic area that had eroded away.  We are able to do some lake clean up since the water level is so low this year.  Will be moving some fencing up to higher ground around pump house #2 to keep people out.  Dave and I continue to clean backflows for each property.  Cleaned up the parks and trimmed several trees.

Treasurer –   The Budget committee has been meeting over the last several weeks to finalized the 2024 budget.  There are only a few items that still need to have dollar amounts affixed and these should be completed by our next budget meeting.
