I live in a small condo. Several years ago there was a large assessment and many owners were upset at the cost. The Board President now wants all financial decisions to be voted on and approved by all owners. However, our By Laws state that financial decisions are the responsibility of the Board. How can I convince the Board President that we must restrict these decisions to Board members? Otherwise, we will never have another maintenance increase or assessment approved and the building will decay. As it is, it's been several years since we had a maintenance increase and we have been financing repairs through our reserve fund and of course the reserves are now much lower than before.Join the Conversation Comments (2)
