Facility Maintenance:

  1. We’ve received delivery of filter replacement parts for Beardsley Pool. The vendor found that it will not be necessary to close Beardsley Pool for making these repairs so it will not impact pool usage.


  1. We asked a local plumbing company to check into the blockage of a pipe at hole #14 at the R. H. Johnson Mini-Golf Course making this hole unusable. The quote we received form the vendor for repairing this was $4,900.  We asked Facility Maintenance Staff to take another look at the problem and they were able to come up with a plan to unblock the hole for approximately $50.  Thanks for the effort guys…the cost savings was much appreciated!
