Shelbie had 11 stock transfers in September, and has had a new terminal for the credit card machine delivered and activated on Wednesday October 26th.
Also the new trash truck was delivered on Thursday October 27th and the staff is very excited and happy with it.

Treatment Plant Structure Update –Bonafide Construction was awarded the contract to assemble the treatment plant and has completed the piping and flooring for the new plant. The plant is due to arrive no later than November 4, 2016.

The staff has completed the Yard Expansion projects with new fencing and paving. Over the past few months we have discovered a drainage problem causing erosion to the AVMSC yard and pavement. The water runs down Community across the road and through our yard. The Board approved a motion to accept a bid from Bonafide Construction to correct this drainage problem. Bonafide Construction has installed a 24” drainage pipe with a catch basin and grate and installed a stem wall at Fleming Creek. The entire project was completed by October 28, 2016.
Also a new mirror has been installed on North Oakmont to see traffic on the blind corner of North Oakmont. Also Juan has constructed and posted a “Dead End” sign on Dover Court, and a “Turn Around Only, No Parking” sign on Bangor Lane.

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.
