Any idea of what move to make next? How to get rid of this in control Board with all the votes?
Is this a private or a public body?
There are a lot of statutes pertaining to specific irrigation districts and it would help if you would tell me the name of the district, assuming it is a public body.
How long have those bylaws been in force?
it's a 501-c-12 they file taxes as such. Aa private water district. Bylaws for a long time have been shares, one per acre. latered altered so shares could be sold and moved.
it's not in the water code sectionsunless I mis-read. it's lassen irrigation company often referred to as LIC.
will check bylaws for re-call clause.
I am sorry but my software can read doc but not docx files.There are several ways to approach this problem. One is to ask the Board to change the voting rules to comply with the IRS rules or face penalties from IRS once this s reported to IRS. Another would be to try to recall the entire Board.I cannot recommend a specific course of action.You can get a free consultation from some of the local land use attorneys listed by location athttp://lawyers.findlaw.com/lawyer/practicestatecounty/Land-Use-&-Zoning/California/LassenI urge you to follow up on this with a local attorney who can read the relevant documents and advise you in confidence.I hope this information is helpful.
