Our community owns their own roads. It costs $500,000 to totally re-do the roads. Sealing is expected to give 10 more years of life (40 vs 30 years with no sealing). Sealing is $23,000/application. This means sealing more often than once every 5.5 years is a waste of money.
Our Board has decided to seal more frequently (every 3 years), which, by the math, is a waste of money. They like the way a freshly sealed road looks, so, to them, it’s all about cosmetics. For many (myself included), however, roads are functional, not cosmetic. And I hate to see my Assessment dollars wasted on cosmetics for something that is functional.
Any thoughts or advice on my pursuing legal action (or recommend other route?) to stop my HOA from wasting my Assessment dollars in this manner?
Thanks for the favor of a response.
