GREENE TWP. - Sky View Lakes, Route 390, Promised Land, was sold and taken over by a new owner, resident Tom Haley told the Greene Township Supervisors at the May Supervisors' meeting.
“We have attempted to contact him. An email was sent by five residents. There has been no response,” Haley said. “We're not trying to make waves. We want to help make the community better and improve property values.”
“There have been more than 80 complaints since October that were not answered. Most of the complaints were from property owners that had paid their dues but received notices that the dues were not paid,” Haley continued. “Although these owners had cancelled checks to prove the dues were paid, they were not allowed to use the pool.”
Form an association
“Hire an attorney familiar with property owner associations, form a committee and a property owners' association,” recommended Township Solicitor Jeffrey Treat.
“Neighbors on Breezewood Drive in Sky View Lakes have three junk cars leaking oil. There are also pipes coming from the house draining onto a neighbor's lawn,” complained Kavin Leonard. “We are looking for help.”
“One house on Breezewood Drive has soapy water coming out going into the street drain,” added Douglas Wilkins.
“Sewage Enforcement Officer, Don Nicholson, had been out to Sky View Lakes but did not see any sewage residue,” replied Supervisor Gary Carlton.
“The Township Ordinance does allow three unregistered cars to be stored on a property. Call the Conservation District to complain about oil leaking into the watershed,” advised Carlton.
“Let the Sewage Enforcement Officer do his job. You point out the problem and Nicholson can test the water,” Treat said.
“The roads are drying out,” Roadmaster Jerry Obert reported. “Half of the roads are in pretty good shape, have had pot holes filled, material added and were graded.”
The supervisors agreed to contract with Peckham Materials for 20,000 gallons of liquid calcium at a total cost of $22,280.
