Guidelines for Monthly Grounds Maintenance:

The club responsible for the month’s maintenance should ensure that all of the following areas receive attention. The garden area inside the front wall does not need any work other than trash removal if necessary as this is being maintained by our resident horticulturist Judy Butler and the Mah Jongg group on an ongoing basis. Work on the front parking areas is best performed when clubs are not in attendance at the Center when fewer vehicles are in the parking areas.

 

Patio & Walkways: & Front Seating Area

·         Broom-sweep patio and entryway

·         Remove all litter and debris (paper, leaves, bottles, trash).

·         Dust / wipe down patio furniture

·         Dust / wipe down walls and lighting fixtures

·         Empty outside trash can / replace plastic bin liner

·         Remove Debris from outside mats

 

Frontage / parking area: (from JARC trash enclosure across to "Old"Library)

·         Sweep and remove surface dirt / grit / sand from pathway and parking stalls

·         Broom clean area inside trash enclosure

All tools and brushes, etc. are kept in the shed on the east side of the building with access through the gate on the left hand side of the building; a combination for the lock is required to get in.
