Juan has been clearing branches and downed trees from the December snow and ice storms. Mike and Nick have been shoveling out and clearing all of the fire hydrants and the staff will be relocating the fencing and doing as much of the yard expansion as possible.

Tank Site Update – NV-5 is near completion of tasks 1 – 5 for the preliminary design of the new tank site. Items that still need to be done are discussions with the State and County regarding their permitting procedures, confirmation of pipeline improvements for the new tank, contract documents for the contractor bidding, discussion with CLAWA and merging of all of the tank site lots into one parcel.

Treatment Plant Structure Update – Anthony Cuesta of Wolf Builders is near completion of the treatment plant structure. The drywall is in and textured, the doors are on and the heater is operational.

Recycling Program Update – Ron says that the recycling program has been very successful and Ron would like to thank the community for their cooperation. The recycling program is for glass, plastic, aluminum and tin cans and cardboard which must be broken down. Please refer to the website for further details. Ron hopes to expand this recycling program in the future.

Ron also encouraged shareholders, residents and visitors to continue to observe the water conservation requirements and tips provided by the office. A recycling bin is available in the AVMSC yard. Call the office for details.

Ron has commended both the staff and the residents for their diligent efforts toward water conservation which has exceeded the Governor’s 25% reduction rate. He would like to encourage our shareholders, renters and visitors to continue in their conservation efforts. In the coming months Ron and the staff will offer the residents new opportunities for further water conservation.
