Most of you by now should have received your 3/18/19 Hurricane Update. It is posted on the Hawks Nest website for those that can access it. Unfortunately it reflects no progress in key areas. Our legal action on the wind claim has been postponed AGAIN. Contracts have been awarded to Board members for work, permits are not issued for work, etc. etc. etc.
On that website, one of the owners felt that our GM, Gary Rumberger was not doing his job. Here is my response in support of Mr. Rumberger’s actions:
“Dear Owner, The Board, primarily the President, is making ALL of these decisions and directs Gary Rumberger what to do. Gary R. is NOT driving this train. He is doing what he is told to do. Calls of disgust should be going to the Board. It might help if more would call.
I, and I think ALL owners, share your sense of frustration. No, it is beyond frustration, it is disgust with this lack of progress. The management of this natural disaster has been terrible. Permits that should have been issued weeks ago, a fire pump that has taken almost two years to install, no bid contracts awarded to Board members, no communication with owners, secret negotiations, no timeline plans for legal actions on the wind claim, changing claims consultants on a flood claim that will now be over two years just to have a court date, no decisions from our banks, etc. etc… The list goes on and on and on.
Get ready owners to miss your third year without use of your unit, yet have your third assessment made.”
From the last Board meeting minutes, it appears that the current President will be writing all owners suggesting that we keep the same Board for another two years and/or not hold an election. An election is required by law and by our By-Laws. This Board cannot legally cancel the election. This Board should be replaced in this next election. Regarding continuity, like all prior Boards they will hopefully assist in the transition for a new Board. We don’t need another two years of this leadership or lack thereof in my view.
