Randy,

 

I certainly enjoy reading your maintenance-related information as it appears in PRB. I do have a question/request and was wondering if you could provide sample info that I am looking for:

 

•            Would anyone have available a template/spreadsheet that would list long-term maintenance schedules with the cost estimates and timeframes for community centers, senior centers, sports centers, and aquatics complexes?

 

•            I am looking to compare/update our Aquatics Complex and the daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual maintenance task/checklist. Would anyone have a task/checklist that I could review and compare to what we are currently doing at our complex?

Ron,

 

There are basically two ways you can go on this: find a free source, or buy an off-the-shelf product. There are many options under both choices.

 

I did a quick internet search and found quite a few of each, such as Manager Plus, a computer program that allows you to document and track all your work orders and preventive maintenance. The advantage of this is it’s designed for exactly what you’re asking for, the “templates” are in the program; one disadvantage—it’s going to cost money.

 

There are quite a few free samples out there. Free is good, but the catch is that you have to do more work up front because it’s not nicely digitized like the more costly programs—however, you may be able to deal with that and in today’s economy, it might be your best bet.

 

Another source of information is Sagamore Publishing. They put out most of the texts that deal with parks and rec maintenance and at least one of their books, Parks and Recreation Maintenance Management, has examples of various templates from departments around the country. It’s a handy book to have around.

 

Hope this helps you some.

 

Best Regards,

 

Randy
