Market Renovation – Pics
Progress on the market in MV is continuing, with exterior enhancements now visible for all to see. The 600 sq ft addition is now completely enclosed by large panoramic windows. Above the main entrance, larger windows and added stone are now in place and complete. Upon entering the first automatic sliding glass doors there are now separate entrances to the grocery market and liquor store. The interior of the market is nearly completely drywalled.

Dial-a-Ride – Using the App
A total of 753 unique property owners have download the App using their “owner code”. What’s interesting is that members are clearly using the “guest code” functionality of the system and providing a unique code to family members, friends and renters as there have been 2,343 unique app users this winter. Many members have found this function very valuable as the app allows owners to track the ride count and history by guest code.
Ridership continues to grow, with total rides up 9% this winter compared to last year. For more information about our new app and its functions, visit the TMVOA website here.
