We recently learned that the TLPOA was installing picnic tables outside the pool area so property owners and guests could bring their own food and beverage and have a place to eat near the pool.

We heard the picnic tables weren’t even on the grass before vandals threw one in the lake.

This action ruins it for everyone. Especially the people who wanted to use them.

We hope the security cameras will help to identify those responsible and they are punished.

This type of activity is no joke…it is vandalism and the property owners are the ones who pay the bill for this.

Combining the 3 LVL cost centers, the total loss for LVL is $367,778.00

Duffers lost $26,413.00

Golf lost $208,870.00

Total losses from these cost centers – $603,061.00

According to one of our readers it takes 1,231 assessments to cover these losses

We have learned that the property control committee discussed whether property owners should be able to have trampolines, swing sets or playsets in the front yard of their property.

They believe that these items can cause a property to veer away from the aesthetics of the community.

The committee would like to see these items only in the back of any property.

The committee is considering adding this to a policy for lot maintenance and appearance.

We believe if there is a concern about lot appearance, the committee should start with the appearance of the lots located at the “T” intersection that are not maintained.

There is also the issue of covered boats and RVs parked in front of homes.

Which looks worse…a playset, a covered boat or both?

We have learned that the TLPOA board of directors approved the purchase of a used grader for $97,900.

This was after much discussion and having management explain the need for this piece of equipment.

Sandy Township would allow the use of their grader if they were not using it. However, it would be in use during peak times when we need to use it, so that was not a viable option.

The other option was to lease/rent the equipment which would have been costly.

The other issues is that the equipment may not be available when we want to lease it.

To help keep property owners informed, one of our readers suggested the board of directors or management post a list of roads that are scheduled for paving or tar and chipping.

We have some good news.

It appears that after many, many years of waiting, some work has been done at the mouse house.

At least the outside appearance has improved.

The dumpster and porta potty have been removed along with some of the construction materials.

The neighbors must be as happy as can be.

Now if property control could get some of the other neglected homes in compliance that would be a positive step.

We understand that the board of directors recently held a special meeting in executive session.

The pool rules were approved by the directors.

We agreed with the need for rules however,we don’t understand the need for this to be discussed in executive session.

The TLPOA Board of Directors discussed the back gate situation at their special meeting recently.

Information from the meeting states that the board decided that when the back mechanical gate is inoperable the gatehouse shall be manned.

We were pleased to learn that the security issue is being addressed.

However, we are disappointed that management and the security department could not handle the situation without the board of directors having to instruct them.

It makes no sense having a manned front gate while our back door is left unlocked.

The board of directors has been discussing replacing a comfort center at Cayman Landing campground.

We do not know when the project will be starting
