If you are interested in joining or helping with the Lake Management Committee, please contact us. There are many different aspects to help out with and we can help you find what best suits you.

There is a section of the Nextdoor Truesdale Neighborhood page that the Lake Management committee can use for communication. But a lot of communication happens via email as well.

These are the members of the Lake Management Committee as of last update: Alison Brown, Daniela Tuohy, Debbie Fink, Dieter Luelsdorf, Ira Sanchick, John Bergstrom, John Gusmano, Kristen Sussman, Laura Sanchick, Lisa Capobianco, Michael Jackson, Raymond Morse, Robert Cummings, Sara Manes, Scot Evans, Susan Brown, Susan Enos.

This committee communicates mostly via email or occasionally via the lake management group.

Some core members are more involved in the day to day management and working with Pond & Lake Connection for lake management. Other members are interested in maintaining Truesdale Lake’s natural, aesthetic, and recreational features and balancing them as best we can. Individuals can become involved with the fishing management, geese management, boat management, or other aspects of the lake management outlined above.
