Monika Stumpf, Monterey CoHousing-Mpls, asked about legal options for non-involvement. One of the mistakes we made in our CCR's is the association has no enforcement power short of foreclosing on a unit for non-payment of assessments. If an unapproved addition is added the board can hire contractors to tear it down and bill the unit owner but that is about as far our enforcement authority goes. I think it would be a good idea to charge some escalating fee for work required but not done, with the board or other association representative collecting the fee. We are discussing this right now at Sharingwood in regards to our commonhouse maintenance. Those who don't want to, or can't for physical or other reasons contribute to the effort of washing windows, mopping floors, cleaning the stove and toilets etc. will have to hire someone else to do that for them. At least that is what is being proposed. As it travels the labyrinth of group process it will likely take some other form. This is not a pressing issue since our current community maintenance needs are small and our commonhouse is still waiting for a permit. One of the chronic problems we are having is that people volunteer for tasks and then forget that they volunteered, or don't follow through. Another process we are talking about is setting up THE TASKMASTER...... This evil person would crack the whip, keep the task list, contact and follow-up on tasks not done in a timely manner. Since we have been pretty laid back, especially over the summer, I am not sure how well this will go over. As a group we have consistently avoiding making any *requirements* on community maintenance but rather let people volunteer. This will be an interesting discussion. Rob Sandelin Sharingwood
