The ideal candidate is a mature adult who has practical knowledge about things that sometimes go wrong in a building. They will also have some connection with Bonnie Doon. Here are some examples of issues that the Steward would have dealt with in the past year:
You notice that wear & tear on the wall leading to the men's washroom has accumulated to the point where the drywall should be repaired & painted. You add this to your list of things to review with the league's preferred carpenter.
You notice that the metal plate protecting the latch to the kitchen door is bent. You are sure it wasn't that way the last time you entered the kitchen. You discuss this with Stacey, our Hall Rental Agent, who can decide if the previous night's renter should be charged for the repair.
One day you notice the sound of water trickling in the building. You hunt around and discover a slow trickle in one of the toilet tanks in the women's washroom. You jiggle the tank's flapper and discover you can stop the leak if you play around with it. You decide the flapper should be replaced. Because this is such a simple task you buy a new flapper and install it yourself. (You keep the receipt so the league can reimburse you.)
The more hands-on you are, the better but that is not a requirement of the work. It is important that you pay attention to details and that doing things right is important to you. Contact Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
