I'm having lots of trouble finding info on management company responsibilities in Ohio. Specifically what they should be controlling once a board is in place. And if a board is allowed to disband committees out of the blue. (Design, landscaping and finance). Even if you can point me in the right direction that would be appreciated. Thanks

Your governing docs most likely place responsibility for running the association on the elected board. The board can optionally hire an MC to help with duties in fulfilling those responsibilities, but the responsibilities are still the board's.

The MC works for the association at the direction of the board. The MC should do what ever duties that the board contracts with them to do.

None of this is specific to Ohio.

Is it normal for a 3 person board to vote and make any and all decisions for the community regarding purchases? Example: President selling his shed to the community, which passed by 100% vote (he is 33% of said vote). Mind you the necessity for a shed is nonexistent.

Carrie

Are you sure the President voted in the matter of the shed sale? With 3 person BOD there could have been a Quorum of 2 and the two voted to purchase the shed with the President abstaining. Perfectly acceptable. I would bet that is how it happened.

Typically Committees are appointed by and serve at the pleasure of the BOD so yes, a BOD could disband them.

Re: purchases, read your documents. Generally the Board can purchase anything they feel the HOA needs. For an amazingly similar question about sheds, scroll down to "Lisa's" of a couple of weeks ago.

Douglas gives you a good summery about MC's.

Boards usually have the right to disband committees. Again read your documents, probably your Bylaws in this case. If not there, read your state's corporation codes on the topic of committees.

I am positive he voted along with the other 2 members. My husband talked to him and verified this.

Even if he hadn't voted with the other two, the motion still would've passed.

are you saying, Carrie, that your Bylaws say nothing about committees? IF not, THEN, find your state's Corporation Codes online.

I don't know why you people have to be so rude. I have looked at many sites and not found the resource I need.

Per the post count, Carrie has resigned from the forum.

I read the replies. I honestly don't see the basis for the "being so rude" comment came from.

I didn't see anything other than people trying to help you, Carrie. Good bye.
