In the original post Zev there were no details about WHY the household stopped participating. This is a key detail to know. Rob Sandelin Community Works!

Those who don't put do their agreed-upon tasks get charged for it. We figured that there was a financial loss for us when we had to pay to get things done because not everybody was participating. I find that very reasonable. It is a self-managed condo, and there is a cost to non-participation. But the policy was very unpopular with a vocal minority, and it was dropped. But we have not had a case where a family formally stopped participating and didn't leave. I think you are well within your rights to charge them more money. Maybe it will cause bad feelings, but what the hey-they agreed to be a part of the community, and they are reneging on the deal. I'd be plenty mad if they didn't leave. I say, make them want to. -- Liz Stevenson Southside Park Cohousing Sacramento, California ---------- >From: Zev Paiss <zpaiss [at] earthlink.net> >To: Multiple recipients of list <cohousing-l [at] freedom2.mtn.org> >Subject: Non Participating Households >Date: Mon, Jul 31, 2000, 3:36 PM > > Hello, > > In our community there is a one-person household who formally withdrew > their involvement from the community this past weekend.
