Latest Pond Update
Posted on May 29th, 2019
The board had a closed meeting on Monday night, May 20, 2019,  to address issues with Frank Harris owner of Drainage Experts.  Drainage Experts is the company that lowered the water level in pond one to do repairs to the drainage pipes and culvert on pond two.  Frank promised the board all contracted work would be completed in one week and the water level in pond one would be restored.   In order to allow for unforeseen delays, the board posted a message stating the repairs would take two weeks afterwards the water level in pond one would be restored.   Anthony Ariano, Chair of the Infrastructure Committee, and our President, Zeffra Brewer, have both been in constant contact with Frank pushing to get the work done and the pond level raised. 
 
Unfortunately, Frank has given one excuse after another for the delays (i.e. his illness; firing his lead employer; equipment breaking down;  delay in obtaining rental equipment; and the rain).   Based on the numerous unkempt promises from Frank the board has been reluctant to post any specific dates to the membership.  
 
During the Monday night meeting the board agreed to send Frank Harris a detailed letter with the following demands:
 
You have 14 calendar days to 
 
1. Raise the water level in pond one back to its normal level
2. Correct the poor sod work done at each work site
3. Finish cleaning out the drainage pipe attached to the culvert located on the easement of 1295 SCC
 
The letter is very detailed with the work the board expects to see.  Frank is going to install a c channel which will make it easier to lower the water levels in the ponds.  Zeffra and Anthony received confirmation that the c channel is being made and will be available on Friday.  Thank you Daniel Blough for the excellent  recommendation of installing the c channel versus putting the bricks back in the spillway.  Frank has agreed to be available to install the c channel on Friday May 24, 2019.   Therefore, we expect to have the water level restored some time next week.   If the work is not completed  by Monday May 27, 2019, the board will find a contractor to install the c channel on or after June 4, 2019 (we have to give Frank his full 14 days to act).  Any contractor recommendations would be appreciated. 
 
Thank you in advance to everyone that has given us suggestions, patience and understanding.  This entire process has not been easy for the members working on it.  We are grateful to the majority of the membership that have not forgotten how difficult it is working with some contractors.

Revised Procedure for Reserving the Clubhouse
Posted on Sep 13th, 2018
Georgia Community Management will be the primary point of contact for clubhouse reservations. Initial inquiries are still submitted through the website by visiting the Calendar page to “Submit a New Event”. Upon confirmation that the requested date is available, a $25 refundable deposit (check or money order) must be received in order to secure the reservation. If you need AC or heat, an additional non-refundable deposit of $25 is due upon submission of your request. The AC/heat fee must be in the form of a separate check or money order and may not be combined with the previously referenced “refundable deposit”.  Payments should be left in the HOA drop box inside the clubhouse or mailed to The Bluffs at Richmond Hill HOA at P.O. Box 30, Richmond Hill, GA 31324.
 
It is best to check the calendar first to see if the date you are interested in is available. You can also email Georgia Community Management at kswinney@gcmmgt.com to confirm availability.
 
Please note that reservation requests and payments must be received at least seven (7) business days in advance of the requested date.
 
1. Only the clubhouse can be reserved. The pool will continue to be open to the HOA members. Please be courteous to neighbors as they may freely use the facilities during the reservation. 
 
2. The clubhouse is not insulated. The temperature cannot be controlled like your home. A/C is highly recommended during the summer months. It can get very hot inside so please don’t overheat. Even with A/C running it reaches 90’s inside on hot days.
