on the fence vote

Recommended Posts

At the last board meeting a vote was taken and approved to install a fence.  Days after the meeting(through email, by the board president) we(board members) were informed that the fence was on hold and that there would be a called meeting to discuss the fence(neighbors incensed).  Please help since I am not part of the "loop" that has discussions and apparently powers outside the board meetings to change what happens during regular meetings.

Well,  presumably the Board members, as representative of the larger organization, are responsive to the wishes of all the association members.  (They better be or they won't be board members much longer.)

 

Sounds like the Board acted precipitously and is now  having second thoughts.   Any board member can move to rescind the motion that set up the fence.

A motion like this one often has a lot of "stuff" that has to go on behind the scenes to carry it out. There may be a committee, or a designated fence building guy who is involved in the actual work of installing the fence. Just because the organization has said they want a fence installed doesn't mean it is going to happen until the fence building guy does it. If the fence building guy runs into problems, he might choose to stop work and go back to the organization and ask "Are you sure you want me to build this fence?" From a RONR perspective, if the organization does nothing, the answer to the question is yes and the fence building guy can go on with his work (though that work may be doing nothing because the problem isn't resolved). But the organization may wish to rescind the motion or amend the previously adopted motion in such a way that the problem is resolved.
