We’ve talked about this before. In March of this year a couple of people made a records request for the entire year of 2022. They wanted 2 days to examine the records with THEIR CPA. Because the board wanted to prove to these two women that we’re doing nothing wrong, we complied. Our records are impeccably kept and it took them 3 hours to go through.
Now, we have another request from the same to wanting to see the first 6 months of this year. Following it their request:
I am requesting to see any/all of the financial records for Velda Rose Estates from January 2023 thru June 2023. This request includes every invoice, charge account statements with receipts, checks register and checking account statements, savings account statements, etc. We would expect the information you provide to be in the same format as it was last time. I do not want copies but would like to review the originals in person. It would be beneficial for the treasurer to be available to answer any questions. You can have other board members present if you so choose. Colby clubhouse would be my suggested location. It worked well the last time. The date we would like to have this happen is Wednesday, September 20, 2023. This will give you the full 10 days to get the information together. We could start at 9am. We don’t anticipate it taking more than 2-3 hrs.
These two are former board members, one of whom resigned when we dumped the management company and the other was removed by a vote of the community.
I consider this request to be unreasonable, burdensome, abusive and a fishing expedition. I don’t see any reason why we should comply and I fully intend to deny their request. I’m also reasonably sure they’ll either file a complaint with AZDRE or get their lawyer involved (Dessaules).
