Ouch. I’m living currently in one of those great and friendly neighborhoods, you know, it’s one of those where you realize – if you haven’t known before – why exactly you do not want to be part of a Home Association…, which unfortunately was not an option to chose from when we bought the house.
Received a letter from the Home Association stating, “… the Board of Directors authorized the rentention of legal counsel to receive advice in request for a special meeting…“. This all because of a meeting which was going to look into the possible need of replacing the current Board of Directors and to see how (un-)wisely our money was and is being spent. The meeting which was to be held in 2 days got “cancelled by the Board” and the new date was set to be in almost a month… enough time to really make sure there is a lot of time to for spending a lot of money on the “legal counsel”.
I really, really do not care about all the nitpicking and small games going on in our neighborhood and Home Association, what miffs me though is the fact that I am quite certain who the “carriers of the cost for the legal counsel” will be – us, the members of this Home Association.
On top of money spent for quarrels that same money is not being spent where it should be spent and one of the reasons this special meeting was to be called in the first place: finally improving the lake dam and dredging the lake to again come up to code which has been demanded by the city to be done over 5 years ago. This is where our money should currently go as this could put us all into liability due to the risk of our small sub-division community lake dam to break under heavy waters.
Isn’t it great to live in the subs.
