This month’s CDD meeting was held at 3pm on September 13 at the Back Bay Grill.

The clogged roof drain at Ten Downing causing water to leak into the building was discussed. Roto Rooter was called and came out to fix; however, the workers ran into water and couldn’t go any further.  HOA officers from Ten Downing came to discuss the issue with Henry, and Henry had Subterrain technicians out to check on our end and found the pipe leading to the pond was clogged with sand, causing water to back up on Ten Downing’s Drain.  The CDD shared costs with Ten Downing fixing our end, and then theirs.   

Because we finished the boardwalk earlier than originally planned, we are being very careful with spending our cash on hand.  We have not used legal or engineering services in the past three months, we cut back on office supplies, gatehouse maintenance, landscaping, and lighting repairs.  We expect revenue beginning in November, but we will continue to be vigilant in our spending.

A couple of months ago we sent an email out to residents welcoming any volunteers who could help put out flags and help in other areas that would benefit the community.   We did get some responses for putting out flags, and a couple of residents, Carol Nicoletti and Jean Casale, volunteered their office skills to help out at the Gatehouse.  We also have volunteers who help put out Christmas decorations for us.  Duane Swetland has been volunteering his time helping with the lighting around the gatehouse, and he fixed the lights at the flagpole, saving us a good deal of money by not having to hire an electrician.  We thank everyone who has donated their time and skills to our community.  

Supervisor Weidner started a conversation regarding charging stations in the community and CDD responsibility.  Further study will determine the feasibility of charging stations in the community and CDD and/or HOA responsibility.   

Finally, the Board passed a resolution to continue with meetings in the new fiscal year at the Back Bay Grill at 3PM on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Our next meeting will be at 3PM, October 11 at the Back Bay Grill.  I hope to see you there. 

Judi O’Connor, Chairman
