Brightview Landscape Contract Maintenance

This week, Brightview staff began working on marsh outfall maintenance on the north end of the community. This marsh outfall annual maintenance (on 64 marsh outfalls) is conducted during the winter months (December-February). BrightView Landscape removes the sediment buildup up to six feet into the pipe outfall and places all material removed from the structure along the maintenance easement adjacent to the outfall structure to dry. The piles of material require approximately one-to-two weeks (depending on weather) to dry. Once the piles are dry, the material is removed from the site. It is important to note that staff from the Association and BrightView access these outfalls through Association-owned easements.

Additionally, before any of this work is conducted, all property owners adjacent to these structures are notified via written correspondence placed in their mail tubes. All work associated with outfall maintenance is included within our annual landscape contract.

Sweeper Schedule and Maintenance

Due to the additional downfall located throughout the community, the Public Works Department had three (3) sweepers circulating the roadways to collect debris this week. 

Road Repair and Maintenance

This week, Bennett Paving made repairs (potholes, ride altering concerns) on the following roads this week: Perriwinkle Lane, Bowline Court and Heathmuir Way.  All repairs were funded through the department’s operational budget.

Community Path Repairs

Beginning Monday, January 11, Absolute Concrete will make several repairs (to damaged concrete panels) along the community path system in the Village.  During this time, we ask that all residents utilize caution in and around the construction area. 

Delegal Marina Fixed Pier Maintenance

Over the last two weeks, staff replaced 80 boards on the Delegal Marina Fixed Pier.  Each month, inhouse staff dedicates time (approximately one-to-two weeks) to replace boards, sand trip hazards, screw down loose boards and repair any damaged railings.  Additionally, staff repaired and/or replaced 5 fire extinguisher cabinets along the pier.

Dog Park Maintenance

Inhouse staff completed maintenance items in and around the Dog Park this week which included the replacement of damaged fencing along the perimeter of the park along with adjusting the gates.
