Public Works...Working for You!
2019 Community Path Project
This week, Absolute Concrete completed the section of path conversion from Sedgewater Retreat up to the Deer Creek Driving Range. Due to the unseasonably hot temperatures that we have experienced over the last several weeks, the area alongside the paths has failed to compact properly due to lack of moisture. Although in-house staff have been exhausting various measures to remedy this issue, the concerns alongside the path will correct once the island receives rain allowing the seed to germinate which will help stabilize the soils.
2019 Road Repair Project
Bennett Paving completed paving Priest Landing on Wednesday and striped the roadway on Thursday. Thereafter, the contractor will progress to Night Heron Lane, Bellemeade Court, and Liberty Place. The below pictures are from the road work that was completed on Priest Landing Drive this week.
Kids Fishing Derby
The Kids Fishing Derby on Saturday was a huge success! A total of 132 children participated in the event and caught 521 fish in 1 ½ hours! A special thanks to Coastal Conservation Association Skidaway Chapter (CCA) and their volunteers, who sponsor the annual event and help make the day enjoyable for everyone involved.
Sea Level Sensor Implementation
On Thursday, Interim Public Works Director Sean Burgess and Marinas Director Rory Jose, along with Jim Van Epps, Bob Hainly, and Rick Cunningham met with Russ Clark (Director of Mobile Technology and loT Programs for Georgia Tech) to finalize placement plans and, thereafter, began the installation of radio gateways and sea level sensors at Landings Harbor Marina and Delegal Marina. These installations are a part of a partnership with CEMA and Georgia Tech to monitor water elevation data throughout the county. The group also is evaluating other locations throughout the community where additional sensors may be installed.
Main Gate Plantings
This week, additional adjustments were made to the plantings installed along the community path near the Main Gate. Some of the hollies were relocated adjacent to the Main Gate parking lot and are providing further screening of the parking area. The remaining hollies were planted along the exit lane at the North Gate. The spacing of the crape myrtles also was improved.
