The simple answer is no, we do not plan to decrease the dues. While there are some cost savings due to the current partial shut-down, e.g. utilities and some reduction in staff hours, we have thus far avoided layoffs and tried to minimize the effect on our valued employees. If the current situation continues much longer, further steps may be necessary. On the other hand, there are also some major negative effects on revenue, with the partial shut-down of The Views restaurant certainly being one. We are striving to maintain sound financial practices while faced with an uncertain future. We welcome and appreciate the understanding and support of the SCOV community as we deal with this situation that is unprecedented in the history of our community.
During the COVID-19 closure the pool was drained to replace the water. It was discovered that plaster repair work was needed. Work is to begin on May 12 with an anticipated completion date around the fourth week of June. The decision to proceed included capitalizing on the COVID-19 closure period to reduce the time the pool would be closed. When the Governor gives the go ahead to open pools we may still be involved in this project, but also recognize that the repairs were needed. Weekly updates on the pool repair will be in TWISCOV.
