Nicole Kurtz, one of our firm’s other community association attorneys in our Miami office, wrote in this blog in September about a fight caught on video at a Sunrise HOA board meeting that was aired by WPLG Local 10 on the station’s nightly newscast. Well, it did not take long for the station to air another story featuring a brawl as well as nasty arguments videotaped at another local HOA community.
It appears from the report that the situation at the Mainlands 3 retirement community in Tamarac has escalated to the point of becoming a complete debacle. The residents are clamoring to remove the current directors from the HOA’s board, and the president and vice president of the board are resisting their efforts by adjourning or cancelling meetings in order to prevent votes by the members to recall the current board and demand a new election. One of the homeowners in the community is even quoted saying that she believes many of the combatants are carrying concealed weapons to the meetings, and as a result, she is in fear for her and her neighbors’ safety.
