Volume 1, Issue 11 

Notwithstanding our best efforts, COVID-19 continues to impact our office environment.  Toward the end of the week, around the 15th or 16th, we began to see a few employees feel poorly and eventually test positive for COVID-19.  Regardless of severity of an individual's infection, it precludes them from working in the office to keep the balance of the staff and customers from infection.  This situation becomes more problematic when entire workgroups are impacted.  We continue to monitor the staff impacts daily and adjust resources as needed.  We have seen a less severe COVID-19 impact in our camp participants but this may be partially due to delayed or no reporting.  In any case, we continue to implement our safety protocols related to facility maintenance.

In more equestrian news, Mark Bellissimo and his team have met with staff for a pre-application meeting for the properties owned by the various Bellissimo-controlled entities at Equestrian Village and Wellington Country Place PUD.  We are finalizing the record of the meeting and will transmit those to Council next week along with a summary of the generalized project request and description.  We are also proactively identifying all prior season special permits for equestrian activities and initiating early outreach to those property owners or representatives to facilitate any necessary permits for the coming season.  

The Wellington Athletics team and staff continue to work on the project conceptually approved by the council.  We will present the financing and bonding requirements beginning with our July Council meeting.  Similarly, we will present the preliminary budget recommendation (setting TRIM) at our July Council meeting setting of the summer budget meetings both one-on-one and collectively the with Council as well as our community  engagement efforts with our residents.  

The Tennis Center will host the USTA Junior Tennis Tournament on Saturday and Sunday, June 25th and 26th. 

There will be free Tai Chi and Matter of Balance classes offered for seniors aged 55 and up. Matter of Balance classes will be offered every Monday beginning on July 25th and ending September 12th. Tai Chi classes will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning on June 28th and ending on December 15th.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office

On 6/13/2022 at 8:02am near White Pine, deputies responded to domestic related call in which a suspect shot at victim and missed.  No one was injured.  Two suspects were involved in this incident with one arrested and the other fled.  The one who fled has been identified and incident is being investigated.  All persons involved know each other.    A search warrant was issued for the home and felony charges will be brought against the suspects.  This home has been an issue with Community Police deputies and the landlord is working on an eviction of the tenants. 
 
No golf cart issues have been reported last week.  Deputy Lamm followed up with an in-person meeting with Courtyard Shops Property Owner, Kelly Sikes, to discuss golf carts and parking.  The meeting stemmed from a next door complaint several weeks ago regarding of a golf cart parking near a handicap spot. D/S Lamm and Ms. Sikes discussed coordinating a traffic agreement for the plaza.  In additional it was discussed to possibly incorporate golf cart and bicycle parking spaces in the redevelopment plans for the Publix.  The conversation was positive and the plaza did not want to deter residents from using golf carts in the plaza. 
 
There were 20 traffic crashes las week.  7 out of the 20 occurred in parking lots.  19 of the 20 crashes reported no injuries.  One single vehicle crash had the driver transported by EMS to be evaluated.

Community Policing has been active in the transitional communities working with landlords regarding recent police responses and how to prevent them.  The unit has also been busy at Wellington High School throughout the mornings due to low staff of school board officers handling the large volume of students on campus.

 Recommended actions based on current level: 
Planning, Zoning & Building
  • Overall Utility Revenue is strong with trend indicating FY22 higher than FY21 by approximately $1.2M (ex. capacity fees) as of end May ’22.  On a cumulative basis Total Utility Revenue (including Capacity Fees) exceeds that of FY21 by $7.3M as of end May (Capacity Fees received to date are approximately $6M)
  • $3.2M in Capacity Fees for the Lotis developer project was received in the month of May
  • Outstanding Trial Balance reduced significantly $256k (11%) from Apr, mostly in the > 120 day bucket.  This may be attributed to focused efforts disconnecting customers with delinquent accounts in excess of $500.  Approximately 80 customers were notified and had their water turned off for non-payment through end of May.  These disconnects over $500 have continued in June to address long-standing overdue balances
  • The gap in overall Department Operating Expenses (actual spent over planned budget) has further narrowed in May to $490k compared to $717k (end Apr). However, Meter Services and Plant Maintenance have currently exceeded their planned budgets for the year due to endpoint failures and unplanned emergencies
  • Department Overtime spending remains below budget reversing the overspend trend from earlier in the year.  This was the result of concerted efforts and focused tracking on the part of every Division Superintendent to rein in overtime spending. The WRF and WTP are currently consuming the highest overtime expense currently due to staff vacancies.
  • Plant flows (both Water and Wastewater) are stable and saw a slight reduction in demand in May consistent with seasonal trends.
  • The WTP Lime facility is currently a planned service outage due to construction activities.
  • WRF natural gas costs have marginally exceeded budget ($155k vs $146k) at this point in the fiscal year and trend is expected to continue due to increased commodity costs with current market conditions.
  • Over 1,000 Customer Service initiated work orders were initiated and completed by our Field Services Division in May (597 meter endpoint exchanges, 361 Meter Services, 97 Water Distribution, 17 Wastewater Collection). This is approximately 34 customer service driven work orders per day. This does not include work orders originating outside Customer Service and proactive maintenance    
  • Monthly Customer Service water bill adjustments of $1,377 were issued in May (average $5,400 per month since start of FY), with 2 adjustments exceeding the $300 threshold and a max adjustment of $448.  FY to date $39,172 of account adjustments have been approved
  • Meter endpoint battery failure requiring manual meter reading remains at an extreme level (2,556) in May.  An all-time high (2,710) was also recently seen as this continues to strain the Department’s resources and ability to perform regular functions. However the mass endpoint replacement project (Phase II Badger) has begun and the team is currently in the validation testing step of the automated meter update procedure which will greatly reduce staff burden both in Field Services and Customer Services.  Once the automated procedure is completed, Contractor Pedal Valve is expected to return around the end of June to re-commence bulk meter endpoint replacements.
  • Meter Performance as predicted by Valor analytics continues to suggests no significant cause for concern.  Total “potential monthly risk” for meter under-performance is currently at $5,100
  • Total Utility located are challenging available resources presently.  563 individual locates were performed in May compared to 336 in April. Under 100 locates per month is considered the long running typical average.
  • The Utility has been working with IT to deploy an upgraded Virtual SCADA system which will provide improved reliability and redundancy to the SCADA network as well as enhance the Department’s cyber security posture. The Utility has completed configuring the new equipment for our Lift Station network and is proceeding with work on the WRF over the month of June. The WTP is planned to be upgraded by end of July as a goal.
  • The following Capital project updates are provided:
    • Florida Design Contractors- HPP8 and Post treatment Improvement Project. Work on the degasifier was performed by the contractor in order to troubleshoot hydrogen sulfide removal issues. Contractor is also working on punch list items, site restoration, and painting of the new scrubbers this week.
    • Hinterland- Lift Station Phase II Rehab- Start-up of LS 10 pending FPL connection of electrical service. Contractor is working on punch list items.  Substantial completion is expected by the end of the month (subject to FPL).  
    • Wharton Smith-WTP R & R Project – The contractor is working on rewiring of various lime plant filter valves and control signals. A brief shutdown of a fiber optic patch panel is planned for this week to transfer power wiring for the panel to the new PLC.
    • Phase II Endpoint Replacement Plan (FY22) has completed a two week field replacement period that will be used for final validation and parallel testing of the automated meter replacement procedure. Over the next 1-3 weeks the cycles will be billed and the test file validated. Assuming the test goes smoothly the Contractor has committed to return to Wellington the week of June 27th to complete the rest of the Phase II project using the automated procedure.
OPERATIONS HIGHLIGHTS
  • Department disconnects of delinquent accounts (above $500 in arrears) continues. Customer Service in collaboration with Field Services has disconnected approximately 81 customers the week of May 30th, 52 the week of June 6th and 42 the week of June 13th.  Next week a new threshold will be dropped to $250 in arrears, 114 door hanger notices were issued for disconnection this week according to this revised criteria.  Only those accounts remaining unpaid after receiving notices are disconnected. Disconnects for non-payment was temporarily halted during the peak Covid-19 period

  • The entire Field Services Division is being mobilized to support the manual meter reading process resulting from the high level of No Reads. This is causing work backlogs in Water Distribution and Wastewater Collection Divisions.
  • Utilities GIS has been in discussions with ESRI on corrective actions for the Outage Management Field Services Tool.  A call with was held 6/22 requesting a proposal to move forward.  
  • The Department has been working with IT on a planned rollout (est. July 1) of the new iPad As-Built viewer application. Once the tool launches Utility GIS will train our field personnel
