The board continues to work with the county to have a manned substation of the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department in Tansi. In the mean time, Kerr said it was hoped the county would take over utility payments for the security building, which the county owns.
Kerr encouraged the community to talk to County Commissioners Joe Koester and Jan McNeil regarding support for the substation.
The Tansi Security Department is now down to five people, with two opting to leave.
Some of the amenities have suffered due to age and not being properly kept up. Many in the audience said the indoor pool at Hiawatha Community Center was unhealthy and dirty.
A lady in the audience noted the pool had not been closed in August, as was usual, for the pool to be drained, scrubbed and painted. She also said chemical levels were not being closely monitored.
Kerr said the pool was built in 1977 and part of the issues could be just from age. It was noted that if no one was properly trained in how to test and regulate the chemicals, that should be done.
Burke recounted how volunteers came together to purchase stain and complete that work at Mitch's quickly and without causing financial strain on the POA or the maintenance department. He said he'll be happy to volunteer to do something similar to help get the indoor pool cleaned up for the residents.
"Until the funds are available, you ladies let us know when the best time to close the pool would be. I'll be there," he said.
Those wishing to sign up as volunteers to assist the POA on committees or with special projects are asked to contact the POA office and sign up.
While golf accounted for 22.4 percent of POA income, the course is operating at a loss projected to be $132,000 this year.
The audience questioned why that had not been addressed with increases in golf fees, similar to increases seen in marina fees, boat stickers and use of other amenities.
"The golf course is pristine," said a member of the audience. "But nothing else gets attention. The marina rates have skyrocketed, but golf had a $1 increase?
"You're bleeding money. That's where. Go from $22 to $25 a round. It's not going to kill anybody."
Statements were made that Tansi has to price golf competitively in order to remain in the market. Too high of an increase could price the course out of business.
