    now that they have shut down the CRE forums and dont release any information about the meetings, i guess they figure they can do whatever they want and we wont fight them.

    if someone sets up a meeting to discuss what we can do about getting rid of this association i am in, and i will bring as many of my neighbors as i can to the table.

    let me know.

    haven't heard from them since last August about it... and home goes into foreclosure next week..... and there definitely won't be any proceeds from the house... but i'm sure they will track us down somehow.. money hungry bastards

    When do we want to meet? Maybe the Water Company meeting room would be available... I am available any evening now....

    The policy was set up to allow for full accounting... and now they can produce an aged receivables and payables.... but we still get no reports.... I hear the Treasurer doesn't even get a copy of the checking statements....

    Just spoke with hubby about this... and he is for a meeting also. I know it has been a big topic at the bus stop in the mornings so I am sure a bunch of my neighbors would be interested also.

    Not the Water Company. They have to stay out of it for obvious reasons. Besides, I'm not sure if they would agree.

    Do you think we can get a room at the Southern Community Center?

    There's a meeting scheduled by the Board March 21st at 10AM....

    John Eney will be in charge...

    Do we want to meet before this meeting? This meeting is probably when they will present the ballot questions to the "membership"...

    Join the New CRE Forum

    I set up this new personal forum here at somd.com just for this purpose -- for CRE members to freely discuss this issues and plan action to take control of POACRE from boards who act in their own interests without informing or consulting the membership.

    I'd like to see POACRE get back to the very basics..... reprogram all money to maintain the roads and amenities (lake, airport, stables, playground, etc...). That's it. Too much money is spent on other things and too much authority is supposed by the boards of CRE, authority that does not exist.

    See below....

    I applaud you for setting up the private forum... but it's a "private" forum and in my opinion we need to do this very publically.... even the idea of another website would have to be attached to the open forum here.... in my opinion....


    The last time we defeated the "powers" increase in fees... we had to stand on the corners at the entrance and pass out flyers....

    Even now... we have to be members in good standing to vote and defeat the rate increase.....

    I wouldn't mind a straight up or down CPI increase question.... but this is not up or down... this is how much.... and a lot of people are facing foreclosure or loss of employment.... what is wrong with this picture????

    This should be done loud and in public.... I guess it's time to get in the newspapers again too....

    I agree 100%

    but please use the CRE personal forum as a means for organizing our efforts. I think using several approaches is necessary ---- hand out flyers and information on the corners (there's only so many ways in and out of CRE) is a very effective approach. And only so many people hop onto somd.com.

    Get people to attend the membership meeting. But how about this? As members, isn't there a process for US to propose ballots of our own and make them appear on the ballot?

    I'll personally dedicate a weekend to helping copy, to make posters, and to hand out flyers.

    We also need responsible people to run for the board and board positions.... so the same cast of characters do not run unopposed.

    I can't afford to pay my grocery bill, let alone give CRE more money to waste.
