If the fees are legitimate and are owed, then they have no legal obligation to withdraw them just because they made a mistake and showed you at a zero balance. If I were you I would work on Kim and get her advice - maybe a letter to the Board of Directors explaining your situation would be of help, and Kim might be able to help you with it. Depending on how the board is, you migh consider having alawyer write them a tough letter, if you think they might prefer to waive the fees instead of facing a lawsuit. I leave it up to you on whether you think you'll get more flies with honey than vinegar.
All the best,
