The general manager issue is not over yet. The agenda for the TLPOA meeting Monday shows a vote to retain the general manager.

Property owners who want to express their opinion will have the opportunity to do so during property owner comments.

As we have done so continually — We encourage property owners to attend the meeting and share your opinions with the board of directors.

We also want to know… What is your opinion of the manager and Omni Management Services?

It appears that the executive sessions are getting out of control.

The prior board of directors held executive sessions for buying dishwashers and pickup trucks and we pointed this out. So it is only fair that we point out there are some topics that do not need to be discussed in executive session.

This week’s agenda showed topics: Review proposal to remedy cove depth problem, possible marketing plan for Cayman Landing, golf course liability, storm water management and Aqua right of way lease. There are more topics listed.

It also appears that the board of directors is spending more time in executive session than in open session.

Maybe transparency is dying?

We have learned that at this week’s TLPOA meeting, directors discussed the need for an asbestos study at the Cayman Landing ice cream store.

The ice cream store has been closed for several years because of problems with the structure making it unsafe.

Directors were informed that the asbestos study needs to be done before the building can be torn down or burned down.

The board of directors should also start to look at demolishing the old TLPOA building.

Summer is winding down and fall is just around the corner.

The TLPOA started the year with a budget of $550,000 for road work.

We are wondering how the road maintenance is progressing.

Will we be able to complete the additional road work before winter?

What is next?

The TLPOA Board of Directors announced that they received a letter from Omni Management Services that Shirley Elmore submitted her resignation as Treasure Lake’s general manager.

The announcement also states that while the search is underway for a permanent replacement Shirley will continue as general manager and that this action is effective immediately.

One of our readers pointed out a very interesting situation.

Aqua is conducting smoke testing in Treasure Lake.

According to a letter received from Aqua, a property owner should go outside and inform the workers if smoke enters your house during smoke testing.

In the same letter, it was also stated that the property owner need not be home during the testing.

Say what?

We have learned that there is another outdoor concert scheduled at the Treasure Lake Ski Lodge in October.

Does the Ski Lodge management notify the TLPOA that these concerts are occurring so extra security can be added or the guard at the security office knows additional vehicles will be entering?

Does the TLPOA benefit from these outdoor concerts?

The TLPOA Board of Directors discussed replacing a comfort center at Cayman Landing earlier this year.

General Manager Shirley Elmore recommended that the construction work be delayed until after Labor Day so it would not interrupt the camping season.

Does anyone know if the project has started?

An administration policy regarding standing and special committees was recently revised.

Changes include having committee reports/minutes approved by the committee prior to presentation to the board for approval.

It also lowers the quorum standard from 51 percent of the committee members to three committee members for all standing and special committees with the exception of Property Control. The quorum for Property Control committee remains at two members.
