Treasurelaketalk asked former Director Wayne Marhelski his opinion on issues involving Treasure Lake.
TLT: Having lived in Treasure Lake would you recommend it as a lifestyle to treasure?
Marhelski: There are a lot of good people in Treasure Lake. We enjoyed the area while we lived there, but the main problem is there are still people who envision it as something it isn’t.
It has basically evolved into a bedroom community and yet is still burdened with aspects that most really don’t care about.
When you look at the number of families with children in the lake, they most likely work outside the lake, their children go to school outside of the lake, and the activities they are likely involved in such as sports or other activities are outside the lake.
The argument for the people that want to maintain the status is always, “but the amenities have always been here.”
Never mind that many of these same people, especially the board, were also in favor of becoming a borough and breaking free of Sandy Township.
It only takes one word to describe them, hypocrite.
