Our current HOA board of directors decided to manage our pool
facility rather than hiring a property management firm. By doing so, the HOA board has
indicated to the homeowners that they have saved the
association thousands of dollars.
I and other homeowners thought the HOA board volunteered to
save the association money compared to an outside property management
Certain HOA board and spouses and friends are compensating themselves for the
services provided and claim they are not.
Can the board members (in particular, the board president and vice
president, their spouses, etc.) be compensated for their management services? Can the HOA board president do this?
What actions can the
homeowners take to address this issue? I believe there is no mention of
compensation in the HOA bylaws. I also believe that our HOA
association may not have HOA rules and regulations in place. At least, I have never
seen a copy.
There has also been other questionable spending habits by this HOA
board, such as using funds for restaurant board meetings, sandwiches and treats,
giving bonus dollars to pool attendants and friends that volunteer, etc.
measures can we take to stop these practices?
