Grounds Department-Shop Renovations

Over the past few weeks the Grounds staff have teamed up with Rick Spivey's staff to make several updates to the Grounds building to improve efficiency and safety. Some of the improvements have included:

  • Organization of parts storage
  • Freshly painted walls and added lighting in the reel sharpening area
  • Office updates -including floors, new paint and reorganization
  • Bathroom updates
  • Cold storage updates
  • New roof (outside contractor)
Remaining updates will be scheduled for next season during the same time period. The Grounds Building houses over a million dollars in specialized equipment and is the heart of the Grounds Department. Overall, the building is in good condition but lacks the appropriate space due to changes in technology and increase conditioning levels since its construction in the late 60's.

The following photos outline some of the renovations.

In the next couple months the Grounds Committee will meet at the Grounds Building for one of the monthly meetings. We extend this invitation to the entire membership to stop by during the season to say hello and take a tour of the facility.

Regards,

Pat O'Brien

Grounds Superintendent
