How does our Illinois condo association enforce its bylaws?


How exactly are bylaw violations enforced? We live in small condo association, 10 single family units in Illinois. We have one owner who added a garden in the common area when he built his home. The builder ran the association at that time & gave permission for him to do so. Now, three years later, he has enlarged and surrounded the entire garden with wood, making it a raised bed. He did not ask for approval from the board, as dictated by our by-laws. In addition, it does not fit into the overall appearance of our association and no one likes it. Can someone outline the steps we must take? Do we have to take him to small claims court to enforce removal after we have sent letters or do we have to hire an attorney? He is a retired attorney who is a bully & thinks he can do whatever he pleases. Help! Thanks!
