Public Works...Working for You!
BrightView Landscaping Contractual Work
In anticipation of the upcoming holidays and to help with the dormant coloring of the turf, BrightView applied a turf pigment around the gatehouses (Main Gate, Deer Creek, Oakridge, etc.) and the Harbor Picnic Grounds this week. As an aside, this work is included in the Association’s annual landscape contract with BrightView as an alternative to over-seeding the St. Augustine turf with a winter rye grass.
Building and Grounds Maintenance
As part of our monthly preventive maintenance, in-house staff replaced several damaged boards at the Delegal Marina Fixed Pier this week.
In-house staff also completed light checks (interior and exterior) at all TLA facilities this week. Should you notice an outage at any TLA facility, please feel free to report the outage to Ingrid Poppell at 598-5508.
Road Repair and Maintenance
This week, in-house crews completed root intrusion repairs on Morning Marsh Road and Romerly Road West.
Sean Burgess and Amber Capps, in conjunction with the Athletic Field Complex Committee Chair Jan Bishop and its members, successfully met with the following playground equipment vendors in and around the Savannah area: Korkat (Superior Playground Equipment), Hasley Recreation (Miracle Playground Equipment) and Playground Creations (Landscape Structures). Each vendor provided the committee with a design for the replacement of the existing equipment and the estimated costs associated with each design. The committee will select the appropriate vendor for the project by the end of January 2020.
Center Island Plant Installation
This week, BrightView Landscapes installed plant and tree varieties on the following center islands: Bosun’s Circle, Fat Friar’s Retreat, She Crab Circle, Cotton Crossing, Highgate Lane, Spring Marsh Lane and center islands along Shellwind Drive. The plant and tree varieties included cast iron plants, flax lilies, jack frost ligustrum, live oaks, azaleas, crape myrtles, gingers, etc. and was funded through the department’s operational budget.
