MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
This month’s CDD meeting was held at 3pm on July 12 at the Back Bay Grill.
A Public Hearing to pass next year’s budget was held. We have streamlined our budget for next year; but more importantly, it does not include a raise in taxes. So, for the fifth year in a row your CDD taxes will remain the same. The Board voted unanimously to pass the 2022-2023 budget.
The Boardwalk is done! It looks great, and structurally, it is sound. Henry watched the work being done very closely making daily inspections. We should get a good 30 years out of it. The contractor finished on July 2, and Vice Chairman Barkholz and I walked it to make sure everything contracted for was done. With the exception of a couple of bushes that need to be replaced between Estuaries and Bay Point, the contractor left everything the way they found it before work began. Those bushes will be planted in September, because it is not a good time to be planting anything right now.
Before the contractor left, he rented a boat, inspected the pier, and tightened screws and bolts that had loosened and were ready to fall out of some of the pilings. Our capital reserves took a hit because we repaired the entire boardwalk in one year, but I think it was worth it. We cannot take on any extra expenses for a while, but we should be back in decent shape in another couple of years.
Signage on the Boardwalk will be replaced after new stands have been constructed. The Bulletin Board at the circle will be redone but will not be going up until the end of the year. The background deteriorated very quickly, and a more robust material will be used that will last a lot longer. The bridge to the gazebo still needs to be primed and painted, but that, too, will have to wait until the end of the year.
Volunteers are needed!!! We especially need volunteers to help with the displaying of flags on the appropriate holidays in our community. If you have some time you would like to offer volunteering, please let us know. If you have abilities in any area that you think would benefit the community, your help will be appreciated. We thank you in advance for donating your time.
