Over the past four months, many leaks along with the waterfalls were repaired in both Plantation Lakes pools per Jay Busby, director-at-large. Railings were replaced. The lower pool requires draining as the bottom must be redone. This correction is expected to take a couple days. The upper pool is open.

The June 6 board of directors meeting was canceled due to the lack of a quorum.
