I could not get any information when exactly the “Book of Rules” came into existence.
The Book of Rules ends with a list of amendments and their dates; it also states “Adopted October 17, 2010”
I also could not find out how each issue covered in this “Book of Rules” was established and made into a “Rule”.
My view about this Book of Rules is as follows:
- It contains some contradictions to the Declaration of Restrictions.
- It inflicts numerous Restrictions and takes away Owners/Members’ rights, practically amending the Declaration of Restriction, freely at will.
Part of this “Book of Rules” is a “Book of Restrictions” all put forward by numerous Boards of Directors, without being voted on and accepted by the Owners/Members 2/3 majority vote.
Some of the content of this “Book of Rules” is illegal and unenforceable, and will stay like this, no matter if it is a “good idea”, “justified” or anything else until it is put for a vote to the Owners/Members and get 2/3 majority vote.
This is a very serious and important issue, probably the most important one for each and every Owner/Member in Indian Hammock. It was overlooked for years and needs to be addressed.
