Should condo association board be responsible for grounds repairs?

I live in a Connecticut condo association. Pests are becoming a problem by digging holes around the outside of my unit close to the foundation. While previous boards have assisted owners in eliminating this problem, the current board has responded that they are not responsible to continue the practices that previous boards had implemented.

Further, there are severe drainage problems, resulting in the washing away of mulch every time it is added to the outside of the unit. I have live here 25 years and not once has fill or grass been added to the grounds. However, our documents include maintenance of the outside of units. I am also concerned that the grading in the front is so poor that it may result in a serious water problem in my basement. The Board is aware of the situation but unfortunately do not feel it is a priority.

How do I get the Board to act on these issues? Our present Board has been good about solving problems but in the past we have had bad experiences which developed into financial problems. I would appreciate any advice or assistance on this situation.

I am grateful for the COA. Please continue your great communication to us condo owners! Thank you.
