Tom Atkins

Tom Atkins - Treasurer & Retention Basin Committee

Tom Atkins moved from South Padre Island, TX, to KB in March 2012. He holds a Master's degree in Community Medicine from the University of Washington. He is a retired Dentist who served as a commissioned officer with the US Public Health Service for many years working primarily with Native American Indians. He is an avid researcher, an amateur botanist, and brings many other science-based skills to the table. In Texas, he was an active participant in many aspects of condominium life for 9 years, attending all annual meetings and filling in for the Property Manager on many occasions. As Chairman of the Repair Committee, he wrote a number of technical manuals for managing the equipment in the mechanical room, the elevator, the stairwell emergency lighting system, and the spa & swimming pool area.

Tom has saved the HOA thousands of dollars as a volunteer redesigning the irrigation system, removing problem trees, and clearing & hauling green waste to the dump. The excellent Retention Basin Maintenance Plan is the result of months of Tom's explorations and research in the basin and surrounding areas. He has taken steps to ensure that all aspects of storm water drainage in KB are maintained properly, including building revetements inside the rock wall and along the RB driveway.
