Our community budgeted $8k HOA management company due to the

Customer Question

Hello, our community budgeted $8k for an HOA management company due to the lack of participation from the old board. The new board has become very active in handling duties the HOA management company would have handled and no longer needs to utilize the $8k for that purpose.
Our community has a horse arena that use to be taken care of by a resident who has since moved out this year. In turn, care and maintenance was not budgeted for it. Can $3k of the $8k be moved to fix the arena?

Yes it can, but only by a formal decision by the Board. If your board is now more management oriented, it can do whatever it wishes with or without an outside management company. It can spend all or any part of the $8K on the horse arena.

Can this answer be provided in writing like a PDF? Is it listed in any state statues? I would like to provide it to the other board members. Can I also provide the contact information for Irwin Law?
