Landscape Committee Report
May 5, 2018
1. Olive tree analysis and treatment recommendations
2. Irrigation controller replacement project and use of predictive weather data and mobile access software (Supplier is ET Water, Inc.)
3. Proposed Landscape repair/improvement projects for FY 2018-2019
The proposed funding FY 2018-2019 for Landscape repairs/improvements is $20,000. The proposed Olive Tree treatment is budgeted at $7,000. We have also included $121,764 for CVL contract renewal year 4. This includes a 6% monthly fee increase and fixed price for 24 months for routine maintenance services. This is a $6,893 per year cost increase over the current year 3 maintenance fee.
The Olive treatment if approved would occur in July 2018. The tree and soil analysis was performed by RPW Services. Applying the Olive tree and soil treatment will be done by CVL and we pay for materials, chemicals and extra hours to apply solution if needed.
The cost to remove the Park Pine tree and Olive tree analysis were not anticipated and will exceed current budget. This will lower end of the year general reserves due to these unanticipated expenses.
ET Water company officials and CVL Management will be at the meeting to assist me in the presentation of the controller replacement project. We will discuss the benefits, projected cost savings from using less water and answer any questions the BOD or members may have for this project.
