Highlights from Dec. 4 OPA Board meeting 

The Ocean Pines Board on Wednesday unanimously approved five capital purchase requests, extended General Manager John Viola’s contract, and held a first reading for an amendment to Resolution B-01 during a brief regular meeting that lasted just over an hour.  

Approved during capital purchase requests were a top dresser and Pro Gator for Golf ($31,444.90), a Golf cart path repair ($39,980), Rubaroc replacement for the Mumford’s Landing Pool and Swim & Racquet Club Pool deck/splash pads ($31,805), bulkhead work at Wood Duck I ($325,335) and Wood Duck II ($140,535), and a replacement community center audio system ($16,788.15). Information on each purchase is available in the Board meeting packet: https://www.oceanpines.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/11/12-4-19-Board-Packet.pdf. 

The Directors voted 7-0 to approve a new contract for Viola, without discussion or disclosing specifics of the terms.  

Additionally, Director Colette Horn led a discussion on advisory committee orientation meetings, and Director Camilla Rogers introduced a first reading to amend Resolution B-01, the latter of which is a “Declaration of procedures for adoption and classification of board resolutions to establish and maintain a Book of Resolutions.”
