Thank you... Crack Sealing Team Members


Thank you to an amazing group of volunteers who completed the crack sealing of the runway in 4 hours.    Thank you Bill Como, David Crone, Jim Franklin, Mike Knox, Steve Mestler, Mike Moore, Don Nowakowski, and Tony Scribner.  I appreciate your hard work and great attitude!   Protecting the runway is key to protecting the value in our homes and keeping future repair costs down. Well done!

And thank you to everyone who shut off their sprinklers!

Overall my assessment is the cracks need less filling each time we do it.  The first time we did it we used way more sealant than we used today.   I was pleased with the condition overall when I inspected the runway prior to the work.   And we found very few new cracks.    As everyone knows we will have to spend over $300,000 to resurface the runway when that day comes.  Keeping cracks sealed and surface seal coated periodically can defer this significant expense.
