Don’t question your HOA or you might get arrested

Here are some members who noticed some irregularities about their HOA budget--they tried to tell the board, but teh board did not listen. so they turned them in and got arrested!!! BUT, just as we have been saying--the IRS exonerated the members and the HOA was penalized for excess funds--budgets are budgets and need to be honored--if you don't understand how to do a budget--stop pretending! Our budget and assessments were not figured out properly and we want it addressed BEFORE the IRS looks at it or another member sues because you are double collecting. (taking both last years dues an this years for the same budget is double collecting!

read about this other HOA that had excess funds:

Frank and Stebbins accused two board members of “forgery” — essentially knowingly signing a false statement — which was probably also imprudent. According to a police affidavit, Frank told the investigator a “flagrantly false” board resolution related to the surplus was “used to deceive the community membership and government agencies concerning the improper disposition of millions of dollars of overcharged/surplus homeowner assessments.”
After an investigation, Henderson Police exonerated the board members and then arrested … Frank and Stebbins.
Yes, they were arrested in 2010 for filing a “false report of a crime.”
Henderson Police determined the board members didn’t knowingly sign false documents and so couldn’t be accused of forgery. Moreover, police said Frank and Stebbins had to have known their allegation was false and so should be prosecuted for filing a false police report.
Meanwhile, an IRS audit vindicated the claim of Frank and Stebbins that Sun City Anthem owes the U.S. Treasury more than $1 million for not returning it to the homeowners.

Discussion: Reining in Bullies on Your HOA Board

Not that we have ever had a bullies on our board, but it is helpful to read about others who have board members that call meetings and don't post it for members--who hold executive and "emergency" meetings when not allowed--who don't keep minutes, and call the attorney whenever they want something addressed without board approval! Who would that be?

Speaking of which, Roy's term was up in April, so how come he is still on the board? Are ballots not legal documents in Hideaway? If Roy wants to be on the board, he needs to run in the July election. and why wasn't Tom, who ran and got a lot of votes, not appointed to the board as decorum and common sense would dictate? Do we have a bully on the board after all? read below how other associations deal with their bullies.

Discussion Forum Follow-Up: Reining in Bullies on Your HOA Board: "The problem is all too real. A reader on the HOAleader.com discussion board asks: "I am on the board of directors of our HOA, but the president is just running wild and not following any of the bylaws or CC&Rs and is holding private meetings with the board members she likes and ignores the rest of us. This is an older group of people, so they don't want to be bothered with meetings or anything upsetting, so she is getting away with all of it. How can she be stopped? She holds executive meetings and never does any minutes. We're about six months behind on board minutes, and she's spending money without any authorization. What can we do to stop this? Can it be reported to the state?""
