Similar topic to dues... We're an urban townhouse-style coho. We've never had a requirement (IE in the bylaws) that any member put in X number of hours to maintain our facilities or grounds. Unfortunately, there are a few people who've never (or minimally) participated even though they've mentioned that at some future date they might. This has started to impact the participating folks as our buildings age and require more money and work. Being cheerfully abused has lost its allure. I understand that some groups "charge" those who can't/don't/won't put in work hours so someone can be hired to do essential jobs. Things, like landscaping, seem to require more expertise and interest than our folks have but directly affect our safety and property values. I'm interested in how other cohos manage this in their bylaws and how they handle the "income" financially - especially tax wise. And finally, what is your experience getting renters to "pay or work"? Thanks for any info, Anne at Jackson Place Cohousing - Seattle
