Director Annalee Edwards Holds a Secret Meeting and Documents It
If you don't think that boards gossip and chat outside of meetings, send e-mail to each other, and otherwise take actions not documented in meetings, here is proof that they do.
During the North's reconstruction (appropriately, it sounds like a Civil War reference) between 2000 - 2002, communication to owners about when their property would be worked on was not sent as it had been represented it would be sent. Many homeowners complained to the association about not receiving any notice.
Here, a homeowner (who is also a board member) didn't receive notice. Surprisingly, workers one day began to demolish the fence. So the homeowner painted the half-demolished fence "do not demo" and the remaining board of directors got snarky and sneaky. They conducted their own private meeting, without notice to anyone, over e-mail. And here is that e-mail.
Annalee Edwards took the authority to write a letter without a complete board vote or any other discussion or notice. (This was hardly an "emergency meeting.")
And this e-mail from 2 board members, who took it upon themselves to do it, had the management company do their dirty work and send a letter:
Oh really? "The Board" sent this? Since the recipient WAS A BOARD MEMBER and was not notified of any meeting of any type, how did this occur? Oh, yes. The e-mail and gossip system at it again. And a stupid management company who allows itself to do the dirty work of those board members.
And here is the offending fence:
The HOA Was Already in Complete Disarray
When an HOA already looked like a war zone (see below), and one might wonder what difference does this make on a partially demolished fence that will be completely demolished in 2 days. Oh yes, THE BOARD didn't CONTROL it.
Another homeowner also had had enough and painted "Paint Me" on the side of their building. Annalee Edwards did not have the same reaction to this homeowner's actions.
