Manager Sherri Giles’ updated the Board of Directors on topics including the electrical upgrade project; building power washing, painting and insulation; garage restoration and painting; the search for a new laundry service; and the transition plan for a new Landscape Services Manager with GreenCrew Landcare, Inc.
Pilot Building 91 is a Type 6 building. The project team proposes to continue the electrical upgrade project with one each of the remaining seven building types. A resolution for interior electrical upgrades for two other building types will be presented at the February Board meeting. In addition, Hariton Engineering, Triple C, and ARG, the project’s contractors, will present the process and lessons learned in Building 91’s upgrade.
RESIDENTIAL BUILDING, PAINTING, INSULATION
- Work on Building 53 has been completed. Three sixteen foot fences and their center posts required rebuilding due to damage from plants.
- Repairs at Building 55 have been delayed because trees have damaged the fence structures and will have to be removed. Carpentry should be completed thereafter.
MORE POWER WASHING & INSULATION
- Building 65 in Court 13 has been completed.
- Vendors are currently doing prep. Painting and insulation will be complete with Building 96.
- The Clubhouse is scheduled for power washing on February 5 and completion on February 23.
GARAGE RESTORATION & PAINTING
Courts 3, 7, and 11 have been selected for Garage Restoration. Owing to some complex repairs and coordinating vendors to do this work, scheduling is still ongoing. Work is expected to commence in early 2024.
A search is underway for a new laundry machine vendor. Management presented three proposals and the Board asked for more information from one of the vendors.
Contractor Craig Troxler has submitted plans for serpentine wall repairs to the LA Department of Building and Safety for permitting purposes and is awaiting their response. If the city approves the plans, Troxler will finalize the proposal for Board review and approval. If the city does not accept the plans, Management will need to engage a structural engineer to fulfill this requirement.
TRANSITION PLAN FOR LANDSCAPE SERVICES MANAGER
George Havai, the owner of GreenCrew Landcare Inc., is actively seeking a replacement for supervisor. Angel Patino will serve as interim, with the current supervisor, Nick Havai, continuing to monitor operations during this transitional period. An evaluation of Angel’s performance as on-site supervisor will be conducted in a month.
