Members of the Water Advisory Committee and the Harbormaster and Marina Committee Chair met with them, at the tank farm and the marina, respectively, to discuss the components and reserves.

2.  Ad Hoc Berm Protection Committee updates:

-The north crossover needs to be completed on the beach side. The uneven rocks could be a trip hazard, so please do not cross there until it is finished, and a more gradual transition is established. The posts, ropes, and two signs are in place as a visual barrier. Sea grass is being planted on the berm.

-The next step, which will be brought to the Board in May, is to establish a standing berm protection committee to monitor the condition of the berm and to recommend ongoing maintenance of the berm and shoreline assets.

3.  Tech Committee:

-Committee members are trying to solve technical issues to gain internet access in the Village so the first video camera can be installed.

-It was suggested that a comprehensive technology, connectivity, and security system be proposed as a capital investment.
