Presidents Report – For November 14, 2013

By November 14, 2013December 19th, 2013No Comments


I started on the project list and am making good headway. The online tools have passed all the tests and our web develop and dock repair companies are using it.  We have also gotten most of our complaints and suggestions via the web site rather than emails.  This makes tracking easier and reduces stress on volunteers.

Accomplishments this month

Since the last meeting, I have managed to get the following tasks accomplished:
·        Verify that the cloud tools work for managing projects
·        Began getting violation reports, complaints, and suggestions in the system
·        Had sand put in at Fishing Creek and a general clean-up
·        Repaired the Fishing creek dock and removed the gate.
