Law informed Board of conversation with attorney, William Hofmann of Plunkett and Cooney of Petoskey.
Hoffman stated that it would appear the Association has been very patient with the situation involving the construction site, and our Association will have to make a decision on enforcement of the by-laws. Mr. Hoffman stated further that if the Association continues to extend dead-lines, it could acquire a reputation for not enforcing building restrictions. Requesting a proof of construction loan for the home was also suggested, and would not be a unreasonable action of the Association.
A motion was unanimously passed by board members to make the following resolution pertaining to the Nevarez site:
Show proof of a Construction Loan by September 30, 2002
The Home will be constructed within 6 Months with occupancy permit, prior to living in the home, (Antrim County Building code)
Immediately remove stumps and debris from road easement
Remove motor home and miscellaneous debris from lot
