Following Declaration Precisely to Preserve Board's Authority
Q: The board of directors of the association I manage has determined that we need to make extensive repairs in the community. Members were informed that this will be paid for through a special assessment. Now, one member is asserting that this isn’t valid because we didn’t announce it as required by our declaration. He’s refusing to pay, and other members are following suit. But the repairs are badly needed. Does it really matter how we announce special assessments and other charges if they are completely necessary?
