We commend Mimi Goodman for her work at Duffers Tavern.

Mimi is responsible for the good food and also the atmosphere.

When you go to Duffers Tavern there is a warm welcome — she makes you feel that she is happy to see you and is glad that you are there. Add  good food to that and your visit is a good experience.

If you have not been to Duffers Tavern lately — stop in.

TLT asked former Director Wayne Marhelski his opinion on numerous issues. This is his response.

TLT: How do you feel about the financial situation at Treasure Lake?

Marhelski: At some point, hard decisions need to be made. The expectation can’t be that the assessment can just be raised.

When you have amenities that are consistently losing money, they need to be looked at. Of course that requires a willingness to be objective and be capable of making a good decision.

What’s the loss of some of these amenities over a five year period, over $2 million, maybe even over $3 million?

How can a board member declare that they are being a good financial steward and allow that to  happen?

At a recent TLPOA meeting directors voted to accept the proposed revisions to the archery and flintlock management hunt rules as submitted by the wildlife committee.

The board approved adding a wooded area along Bay Road near the Cayman Campground to the hunt. However, the board by a 4-4 vote denied adding Mastic Point parklet to the hunt area. The board president cast the tie vote causing the motion to fail.

We commend the TLPOA Safety and Security Committee for developing and hosting the Emergency Preparedness Forum.

We understand it was a success and there was a significant number of attendees at the event.

It was also a positive that this was turned this into a community wide event and invited Sandy Township and Clearfield County.

Questions surround the decision process used by the board of directors’ to select the property owner to fill the vacant board seat.

We know they did not base their decision on past board experience because they did not select Steve Tuller or Chuck Bly.

We know they did not base their decision on meeting attendance because they did not choose Toni Moulthrop or Steve Tuller.

We know they did not base their decision on community involvement because once again they did not select Tuller or Moulthrop.

We know they did not base their decision on adding another female to the board because they did not choose Moulthrop.

We know they did not base their decision on what the property owners wanted because in the Treasurelaketalk poll, Tuller had the most votes followed by Moulthrop.

We do know that the board chose Alan Moore to fill the vacant seat.

We have nothing against Alan Moore, but we do have questions about the decision.

Was he selected because of his current business experience?

What decision process did the board use to base its decision?

We do know Alan has a business relationship with the TLPOA —  Isn’t this a possible conflict of interest?

Does anyone out there have the answers to these questions?

We have learned more about filling the vacant director’s seat Monday at a special board meeting.

A week prior to the meeting the board interviewed three candidates and asked the same questions.

The candidates were: Steve Tuller, Toni Moulthrop, Chuck Bly and Alan Moore.

Bly did not participate with the other candidates in the scheduled board interview.

The board voted at the special meeting by secret ballot and the results were: Moore 3, Bly 2, Tuller 1, and Moulthrop 1.

Two candidates, Bly and Tuller, had previous board experience.

Bly was removed from the board in April because he missed three board meetings.

Tuller is a former board member and served three three-year terms holding numerous board offices, including president, vice-president and secretary.

Moulthrop and Moore had no prior board experience.

Bly and Moore did not attend the special board meeting or the regular board business meeting.

Tuller and Moulthrop were in attendance.

The vacant board seat has been filled.

According to our sources from the special meeting tonight, the board of directors by secret ballot voted for Alan Moore to fill the vacant board seat.

Sources also told us that Moore was not at the meeting. The board adjourned the special meeting and then went into the regular meeting … This means Moore has already missed his first meeting.

We are extremely disappointed, but not surprised, by the action of the board of directors.

More information to come.

The TLPOA will hold a special meeting tonight (Monday, Sept. 21) at 6 p.m. to select a property owner to fill the vacant board seat.

The selection is scheduled to be by secret ballot.

At this point Steve Tuller has the most votes in our website poll and is also our top pick for the seat.

However, no telling what the board will do!

The regular September meeting will be held after the special meeting.
