Would FEMA pay to pick up all our debris, when should the security guards be asked to return to duty and could we tap into reserves without a membership vote to pay for storm repairs? Here are a few other questions, I&#8217;ve received from associations statewide who are grappling with the issues presented by a storm like Irma.   <a class="altp_link" href="http://www.communityassociationlawblog.com/2017/09/community-association-questions-post.html" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Read the Q&amp;A&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;..</a></p> Poinciana homeowner contests association election again (FL) http://communityassociations.net/poinciana-homeowner-association/ communityassociations.net » Florida Condo & HOA News urn:uuid:a8a0424b-ad43-c776-9a9c-6072a20e2727 Thu, 14 Sep 2017 22:45:25 +0000 A homeowner is again trying to tip the balance of power within one the state’s largest homeowner’s associations away from developers.  An election challenge filed by homeowner Martin Negron calls <p>A homeowner is again trying to tip the balance of power within one the state’s largest homeowner’s associations away from developers.  An election challenge filed by homeowner Martin Negron calls for a recount of votes in the Association of Poinciana Villages, but only after the state agency that regulates HOAs tosses out scores of votes he thinks are illegal.  That agency, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation, already sided with Negron in a challenge in June and nullified the results of a February vote. In that ruling, an arbitrator ordered the Aug. 1 election.    <a class="altp_link" href="http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/osceola/os-resident-challenges-poinciana-hoa-election-20170914-story.html" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Read the article&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;..</a></p> Sandy victims to hurricane survivors: Now it gets tough http://communityassociations.net/victims-hurricane-survivors/ communityassociations.net » Florida Condo & HOA News urn:uuid:209bd8a1-178a-91a3-8abf-bbff9f278312 Thu, 14 Sep 2017 02:08:47 +0000 Victims of Hurricane Sandy have a message for Texas and Florida residents devastated by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma: Your torture has only just begun.   Five years after Sandy ravaged <p>Victims of Hurricane Sandy have a message for Texas and Florida residents devastated by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma: Your torture has only just begun.   Five years after Sandy ravaged homes in New York and New Jersey, victims flocked to Capitol Hill Wednesday demanding changes in the federal government’s National Flood Insurance Program they say made getting reimbursed for storm damage a nightmare.     <a class="altp_link" href="http://nypost.com/2017/09/13/sandy-victims-to-hurricane-survivors-now-it-gets-tough/" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Read the article&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;.</a></p> Hurricane Irma: Tornado tears off roofs, walls at Crescent Beach condo complex (FL) http://communityassociations.net/hurricane-tornado-crescent/ communityassociations.net » Florida Condo & HOA News urn:uuid:cfe5226a-a514-d0d9-bb45-0abc0f6dacad Thu, 14 Sep 2017 01:24:14 +0000 The most powerful tornado to hit Northeast Florida during Hurricane Irma was in Crescent Beach.  An EF2 tornado touched down at Summerhouse Condos.

Hurricane <p>Governor Scott has declared a Florida-wide state of emergency which now deploys the emergency powers for volunteer boards found in Sections 718.1265, 719.128 and 720.316 of the Florida Statutes. Hurricane Irma may prove to be the testing ground for these emergency powers to determine, post-storm, if boards abused these powers and therefore the powers need to be reduced or if volunteer boards needed more help to cope with Irma than the current emergency powers provided and thus, these powers need to be expanded in the upcoming 2018 Legislative Session.    <a class="altp_link" href="http://www.communityassociationlawblog.com/2017/09/your-florida-board-of-directors-now-has.html" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Read the article&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;&#8230;.</a></p>
