bill (HB 1357)
introduced by State Rep. Mike La Rosa and co sponsored by State Rep. John
Cortes, both of whose districts include Poinciana, proposes major changes in
the way homeowner association are run.
Comment: May aid? Only just a little bit. The main issue: FAIR ELECTIONS -- will still not be resolved. As long as FS 720 doesn't contain provisions that guarantee fair elections, the battles -- and the abuse -- will continue. Lots of money that should be used for maintenance and beautification of the community is wasted on legal fees. Fair elections are the foundation of neighborly communities. Condo law provides fair election provisions. Why are homeowners denied these same rights?
