The Druid Hills POA has spent the monies collected from folks that are paying dues for their attorney to go after people not paying them. I personally received two letters, and one was sent out to allegedly discredit HOA (me) on 10-28-16 the POA’s president filed 9 policies setting rules and regulations, enforcements, reserve study, etc to their advantage.
Quote from POA Policy Regarding Reserve Study:
NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS RESOLVED that the Board of Directors does hereby adopt the following policy regarding reserves:
1. Insofar as the Association has no obligation to maintain, repair, replace or improve any improvements within the community. Therefore, there is no need for the Association to obtain a reserve study. Signed by David Rusterholtz
Their website had their By-Laws under construction in 2016. On June 23 2017 they filed their new “By Laws” without the majority consent of members who own here in the Druid Hills according to the laws governing all associations. That is a big misconduct on their part, since their By-Laws suggested revision 11-23-08 stated they could not be amended unless the majority of members votes to amend them. Still they have changed their by laws, and they changed the wording from ‘may not’ to ‘they may change them’ voting with only the members on the board present.
That’s how they raised the dues from 25 dollars to 75 dollars, lets see according to the tape recording on the 2015 annual meeting only the POA members and their wives were voting. I ask do you want a select few governing us, when we find out after the fact about what they have done.
For those of you paying dues to the POA when many others are not, thanks for supporting the POA to come after others, they have no right to collect dues unless you volunteer to do so, and their By-Laws state that only one due is required regardless of how many lots you own. Those of you with more than one parcel, being asked by the POA to pay dues for each lot well the POA is ripping you off.
