New Board Fining Policy

After reappointing themselves by denying all other candidates the right to run, the 2019 Board ramped up its efforts to collect $1,000 fines plus legal fees after first notice, denying due process, just for innocent failures to follow ILLEGAL RULES. After legal challenges, they need to return the booty.

 

Rigged Elections

Our Board and Property Keepers maintain control by deceit, blocking eligible nominees, ignoring Roberts’ Rules at meetings, jiggering accounts, and failing to properly advertise our annual elections to members.

2019-20 Holly Lake Pembroke Pines Board Meetings

August 25, 2020 Board Meeting

  • After missing July’s required meeting, the Board made a dozen motions to approve appearance of our community. Property Keepers has replaced LCAM Jose Fabregas with Philip loCicero. Tree pruning will proceed under $5,865 bid from our lawn service Matteo’s. Two more bids will be collected for clubhouse roof resealing. Powercom will return to fix the basketball court lights.

    The Board authorized reopening the pool and gym daily for 8 hours yet later accepted 4 hours on weekdays only. Property Keepers provided Charlin as of Sept 21, a new maintenance man under its contract for 20 hours/week, who will also serve another 20 hours/week as pool attendant, 1 pm to 5 pm. LCAM loCicero was hired for another 4 hours/week on site to restart pursuit of neglected property violations. Next meeting is Sept 24, Thursday, 7 pm.

June 30, 2020 Board Meeting

  • All 5 directors and 11 attendees were masked for June’s required Board meeting. Future meetings will be scheduled normally for last Tuesday of each month. Fifty minutes were spent on Old Business, because progress on projects from May have stalled: critical roof repair, a 3rd roof drain, hiring of pool attendant and rules to re-open club house pool (family pool will remain closed), tree pruning in mini-parks, removal of 2 tree stumps, dead security cameras at both pools, and placement of new mailboxes outside club house to meet USPS demands. Only 2 motions, 5-0, for New Business: rejecting City engineers’ proposal to build Pines Blvd extension across US 27 for a southern exit into Holly Lake at NW 217 Terrace and waiving of past 3 months’ $10 late fees due to Covid. Audio MP3 recordings of the meetings are now available to members by contacting vice-president Brito at 754-715-0727. LCAM Fabregas is now on duty at clubhouse office 4-6 pm Tuesdays and 9-11 am Fridays. (masks required).

May 28, 2020 Board Meeting

  • After 3 months of making secret decisions without legally-noticed meetings, Holly Lake’s Board agreed to try teleconferencing on May 26. But Broward lockdown orders eased, allowing in-person meetings with social distancing and face masks on Thursday May 28, 7 pm at the club house rec hall. Residents have been abandoned, their amenities denied, for 3 months. LCAM Fabregas had signed contracts on emergency basis for $7,000 in club house roof repairs and $735 for new pool pump, but work has yet to start. The Board voted to open the club house pool on June 7th for the summer, 10 am to 5 pm under State pandemic rules that require a pool attendant to enforce face masks, 6-foot distancing, and occupancy limited to 11 (50% capacity). The gym, sauna, and family park pool will remain closed.

    The Board failed to pursue recovery of documented $13,419 overcharge by former lawn service Tropic Star, because its owners, the Lamborns, might complain to other landscape firms and “give Holly Lake a bad reputation.” Yet Matteo’s, the current lawn service, is willing to renew its contract at same $4,750/cut for a 2nd year. Vice-president Brito at 754-715-0727 can provide information on opportunities to serve on Advisory Committees for Landscaping, Beautification, and Documents Reform.

Feb. 25 Board Meeting & March-April

  • Board discussions with attendees defined fate of several big future expenditures. Outside storage failed, design and placement of new mailboxes (demanded by USPS) succeeded, and future use of old convenience store space remained undecided. The Board voted on minor repairs and discussed failed 5-year warranty of leaking clubhouse roof. LCAM Fabregas has been citing homeowners for violations, especially for failure to get architectural changes approved, even though the Association currently lacks any objective criteria to enforce such fines. Rather than use any of the popular low-cost internet platforms during Covid-19 crisis to hold required March and April meetings, the Board opted to cancel them.

Jan. 6 & 27 Board Meetings

  • No motions nor reports at Transition Meeting required in our By-laws for first week of January. LCAM Fabregas decided to drop the public oath normally taken by officers to uphold our governing documents and Florida Statutes. On 3-day notice, a Special Board meeting is held Jan 27.

Dec. 13th Board Meeting

  • On 48 hours notice, the Board hosted its “Information” meeting at the rec hall, 6:30 pm Friday 13, to shift blame to former Manager Next Gen for its lack of progress. The Board’s preference for total secrecy is a more likely cause. Tammy Wyant had failed to present a 2020 budget in open meeting to membership in October, as required in our By-laws. Instead, the Board refused to hold any open meeting in October. The 3 Covenant proposals were discussed. Election rules will include simple limited proxies as alternative to tricky “double envelope” mail-in ballots. Members were just starting to receive absentee ballot package with candidate bio’s mailed a week earlier

What The Board Failed to Tell You

We strive to keep Holly Lake residents fully informed about what is happening in their community. Too often we find information that is important to residents but is unreported or in error on the Board’s small and outdated website managed by Next Gen. We will post information as we discover it to keep you informed.
