Manager’s Monthly Report October 2016

Manager’s Monthly Report

Ron Fussell our operations manager has presented this report of the operations and project updates for October 2016.
The crew responded to 14 service calls, 4 were markings and the others were turn offs, turn on calls, inspect customer shut off valves and meter re-reads. There were 2 private leaks identified by AMR. All of the leaks have been repaired or turned off. The crew has been crack filling roads, street sweeping, working on the yard expansion and finished the Well #5 house. Shelbie had 5 stock transfers in October, and the new credit card terminal is now operational.

The new trash truck has been put into service. AVMSC will send out notices with the January billing statements that Trash Collection for the entire Villas will be on Mondays beginning January 23, 2017. Also the new home recycle service will be established next month and the home recycle service will be every Tuesday beginning Tuesday January 24, 2017.

During the month of October we purchased 841,425 gallons of water from CLAWA and our well produced 714,270 gallons. During the month of September we purchased 1,023,264 gallons of water from CLAWA and our well produced 873,389 gallons.

The total precipitation for the month of October was 2.29”.

Treatment Plant Structure Update – The Treatment Plant arrived on schedule on November 4, 2016. Bonifide Earthworks has begun assembling the treatment plant and it is about 90% complete and should be completed by November 18, 2016. ADEdge will need to inspect the plant upon completion and samples will be taken and Dept. of Health Services will need to approve it before it can be put on-line, which we hope can be done by January 2017.

The Yard Expansion, fencing, drainage and paving projects were completed by Bonifide by Friday October 28, 2016. The yard looks really good and the life of the asphalt has been extended 5 – 10 years.

Recycling Program Update – The home recycle program will be starting in January 2017. Notification and instructions will go out with the January 2017 assessment billing statements to all shareholders. Please pay attention to updates and instructions coming in your January mailings and newsletters.

Update on Wells – Harich Well Service is scheduled to adjust the level transponder at Well #5 by mid-December, as well as remove the pump motor and video the casing to determine the condition of Well #7.

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.
