DUBOIS – An update of Treasure Lake’s efforts to become its own borough was given at the Sandy Township Supervisors’ meeting Monday night. 

Supervisor Brady LaBorde explained he had pushed for the update after being asked about what progress has been made.

Treasure Lake’s initiative is continuing along in accordance to state statutes. Currently, the process is amidst a phase that involves both Sandy Township and Treasure Lake exchanging information.  It will end in late August. 

Then, an upcoming phase will involve a five-person committee being organized to review the issue. The committee will consist of two people from Sandy Township, two people from Treasure Lake and a fifth person picked by the judge to serve as the chairman of the committee.

The supervisors also stated that they’d heard the township hasn’t been doing anything for Treasure Lake.  The supervisors list its services provided by the township to Treasure Lake, including police coverage, zoning, skunk control and a monthly payment of $3,800.

Supervisor Ray Anderson explained why the township does not plow the lake’s roads in winter.

“Your private drives don’t get plowed in winter [by the township]. [Treasure Lake]’s private roads don’t get plowed,” said Anderson.
