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:

“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!
