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.

For more information contact the TLPOA Office at 371-0711.

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.

The TLPOA announced that an executive meeting was held Monday and that the Treasure Lake Board of Directors voted to file an application for extension of the liquor license with the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board.

They authorized Chris Corcoran to execute said application and any other papers required by the board.

We are uncertain as to why it was necessary to discuss this matter in an executive session.

This brings back memories as to other issues that were discussed in executive session that we believe were not necessary… remember the Lakeview Lodge dishwasher, weed treatment chemicals for the lakes and the purchase of a pickup truck?

Considering all of this the board then wonders why the criticism!

At the March TLPOA meeting the board of directors voted to authorize the purchase of new radios from Mobilcom of Clarion at a price not to exceed $45,000.

It was reported that the radios are needed for the security department to use for communication since there are areas in Treasure Lake where cell phone service is unreliable.

In emergency situations radios play an important role in getting emergency responders where they need to be as fast as possible.

Remember, the Treasure Lake security patrol often acts as the escort for emergency responders helping them navigate to remote locations throughout our community.

Although the cost is substantial, we would rather see the money spent for the needed radios than for other questionable uses.

Matt Hasselback, Treasure Lake’s property control officer submitted the following response to a TLT posting concerning a storage container in a front yard that has been in place for months:

Hasselback wrote —
“My attention was directed to an article on this website (TLT) complaining about a storage container located in front of a home. The only one that I’m aware of is near the back gate, however, contrary to your article, it is NOT a violation of any Property Control Policy. We currently have no policy that regulates temporary storage containers. I agree however, it is unsightly, and perhaps our shed policy can be amended to include these. Until then, I’d appreciate a clarification to your article, and perhaps a call to me for factual information before it is posted. I can be reached at 371-0711 ext. 110. Thank you.”

Note that in Hasselback comment he claims: “We currently have no policy that regulates temporary storage containers. I agree however, it is unsightly, and perhaps our shed policy can be amended to include these.”

We say: If this is the case then what prevents a Treasure Lake property owner from installing a “temporary storage container” PERMANENTLY while using it as if it were a shed? The property owner could, if they had pride in community, paint the temporary storage container the same color as their home. PROBLEM SOLVED!

We suggest that Hasselback and the property control committee revisit the shed policy and apply it accordingly!
