Treasurers Authority

We have a 5 member HOA board.  If a vote is held to approve a proposal and the Treasurer doesn't vote in a timely manner, is his vote necessary if the vote for the cost has already been approved?

It sounds as though you are talking about some sort of vote taken outside of a meeting. The rules in Robert's Rules pertain to voting processes within meetings. If you take votes other than at a meeting, you must look to your own rules for guidance about the requirements.

Guest Frank, unless you have a customized rule to the contrary, nobody's individual vote is essential for the passage of a motion.  All that is required is that the motion receives the required number of votes.  It doesn't matter which members those votes come from.

If we are misunderstanding your situation or your question, please clarify it for us.

Unless your rules say otherwise, a five-member board would require that at least three members be present to have a valid meeting.  Then, to pass a motion, with three members present, two would have to vote in favor.  If four members are present, then three would have to vote in favor.  So, if the treasurer is absent, and you have at least three votes in the affirmative, the motion carries, regardless.

If the rules in RONR are controlling, I'm afraid that none of this appears to be correct.
