Numerous readers have commented about not being satisfied with Omni Management Services.

We wonder why and point out that these critical property owners may have forgotten our prior attempts at hiring a general manager.

The attempts proved to be unsuccessful!

One general manager stated repeatedly that delinquent assessments could not be collected. Well, he was sure incorrect about that as thousands and thousands of dollars have been collected.

Not only that, but he was known for playing favorites with certain factions in the community not to mention other issues that were not positive.

He had a record for not making budget but continued to receive bonuses.

Another manager had issues to numerous to mention.

Looking at Treasure Lake’s history for hiring managers …. Omni may have been a step in the right direction.

And, by the way, we have also heard complaints about the current general manager – More on that in another post.

We have learned that the topic of landscaping around the Lakeview Lodge was discussed last week at the TLPOA meeting.

It was described as a three-phase project.

This area has needed work since the trees were removed several years ago.

It looks like the trees were ripped out and no work was done to repair the damage.

Hopefully the work will begin before winter weather sets in.

The TLPOA announced that an additional 1 1/2 miles of roadwork is planned for this year.

The roads will include Capatian and Tarpin Bay Roads and from Treasure Lake Road to the Silver Golf Course.

The additional roadwork was added after bids for the original road work were lower than expected allowing the TLPOA to do more roads for the budgeted amount of money.

It is garage sale time.

There are numerous sales under way in our community.

Today vehicles were parked on Bay Road to go to a garage sale.

Drivers did not pull off the road, just stopped and exited the vehicle.

Where is security?

These vehicles should be cited.

Traffic was backed up behind these vehicles and tried to go around them.

This is a hazard and these drivers should be cited by security.

At this week’s TLPOA meeting, it was brought up that there is a problem with the GPS bringing visitors to the back gate where they are not able to gain entry.

The security guard then instructs them to travel through town and use the front gate located on Route 255.

TLPOA Board President Steve Tuller said the GPS providers were notified several years ago to update their system so motorists would arrive at the front entrance instead of the back gate entrance on Bay Road.

TLPOA general manger Shirley Elmore said if an individual’s GPS unit was updated it would direct the motorist to the front entrance.

We have learned that the geese problem at New Providence Beach was discussed at this week’s TLPOA work session.

It appears the general manager is working on the problem with the Wildlife Committee. The problem with the geese is not new. Problems have occurred in the past and fences were constructed and used to successfully control the problem.

It was suggested that the Wildlife Committee and the Treasure Lake Sportsmans Club could work on this issue.
