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 Restrictions and takes away Owners/Members’ rights, practically amending the Declaration of Restriction, freely at will.
A part of the “Book of Rules” can be called 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.
Part 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.
The Book of Rules was last amended on October 29, 2020, and it is now only 22 pages. Unfortunately, the delusional Rule 1-1 and some other “Rules for Fools” are still there.
