Its plainly visible!

Some property owners have property that needs attention.
What do we mean? Discarded mattresses in the front yard, trash and all kinds of stuff cluttering properties and clearly visible.

There are propane or oil tanks that are also visible from the road with all sorts of stuffed piled up too.

There have been vehicles that have been on cement blocks in a state of what ever you want to call it….You don’t have to look hard to see all this, it is right  along road mainly traveled within Treasure Lake.

We recently pointed out an issue with a storage unit in the front driveway of a home and were informed that there is no policy against this… so  maybe there is no policy against putting old mattresses in a front yard.

We believe property owners should be responsible and maintain their properties and we also believe that the property control officer should be assuring that Treasure Lake is the community that you want to invest in…this occurs when properties don’t look like trash dumps!

There seems to be some confusion over messages from the TLPOA!

Last week on Wednesday the TLPOA announced that at the April 12 executive meeting the board of directors decided to sign a short-term agreement with Omni Management Company. This is the company that will take over general management of our community.

Then on Saturday, the TLPOA announced that they were going to sign a long-term agreement within 14 days.

What happened to the short-term agreement?

The following information was released Saturday by the TLPOA:

The Treasure Lake Board of Directors is pleased to announce an engagement letter with OMNI Management Services of Indianapolis, Indiana has been signed for interim management of Treasure Lake. It is the intention of the TLPOA Board of Directors to sign a long term agreement with the management company within the next 14 days. TLPOA Board President Mr. Chris Corcoran stated over the next 30 days there will be opportunities provided for property owners to meet with the employees of OMNI Management Services and its principals.

Mr. Corcoran stated the operation of Treasure Lake will continue as it has during the recent transition period.

Below is a statement form Mr. Tim Loehr, Owner/President of OMNI Management Services:

On behalf of the entire OMNI management services’ team, we are thrilled with the opportunity to partner with the board of directors and residents of Treasure Lake. Our vision for this partnership is simple – to provide unparalleled customer service to Treasure Lake through implementing our proven systems, our corporate support, our technology and our proactive approach to management.

I founded Omni Management Services in April of 2002. Since that time, we have expanded to multiple states/markets specializing in homeowners, condominium owners and resort-style association management. There’s no secret to OMNI’s success. It’s simply the way we conduct business. I  credit OMNI’s excellent national reputation to the company’s philosophy of investing in cutting-edge technology, hiring people who are passionate about this business and providing them with the best tools and systems they need to succeed. It’s a very basic concept that works! When our managers succeed, our Board Members and our homeowners succeed.

We look forward to a smooth transition and are ready to roll up our sleeves and go to work for you.

Sincerely, Tim Loehr, Owner/President, OMNI management services

Some folks find it necessary to cover things on their property with a tarp. According to information in a recent TLPOA newsletter, Property  Control is  asking residents to stay with the natural color scheme of Treasure Lake by using brown or dark green tarps to cover items.

We agree…..the use of blue and silver tarps makes our community ugly!

Treasure Lake sells wood permits to property owners who may cut up trees that are already down. The permits are for cutting wood on the property owners association common ground, not on empty lots owned by other property owners.

Non-property owners cannot purchase wood permits.

The permits cost $10 and are good for one year from the date that it was purchased.

Treasure Lake property owners and guests may experience some delays entering and exiting through the main entrance due to road work on Route 255.

Work on the Route 255 project near the I-80/DuBois 101 interchange resumes this week. The temporary barriers will impact traffic and delays are most likely to occur between the Treasure Lake entrance and the Narrows Creek Inn. Two-way traffic will be maintained.

This project started last May. Work includes water-line extension and installation of new traffic signals at the I-80 ramps. Installation of the new signals will get underway later this spring.

All work is weather and schedule dependent. The project is estimated at $3.7 million.
