Setting aside for a moment whether or not I agree with Pat Bagley’s cartoon, no one will deny that the Utah State Legislature was busy this year.
In between such important matters as establishing the state gun, assuring that our influenceable youth know that we’re a republic (and NOT a democracy), and protecting you from knowing what you might have said to them (in a now-protected text message), they passed several bills that will change the way that community associations (condominiums and homeowner associations) will insure themselves and their members, decide upon the amount of reserves, and collect past due assessments.
Over the next several weeks, I’ll be trying to figure out what all of this means. When and if I do, I will share it with you.
Oh, and let’s not forget — now you need to register your association with the government. And you have less than 4 months to do it. (Sounds like Socialism to me…)
Oh, and one other thing; your association isn’t a democracy, either.
