    Not sure if this is the right place, I have a question on if it’s legel or ethical for a President of my HOA To have her husband working on the property foreven a small amount of compensation? We recently have a new management company and have terminated services of our sprinkler company, and hired a handy man three days a week also purchased a golf cart for the grounds keeper to use, but all I see using the cart is the president and her husband driving around the property, after all these changes when you ask why, I’m told to save money, and then they raised our 1/4ly dues, maybe this is the wrong place, but it feels good to get it off my chest

    • Dan Tiernan, COO, Campbell says:

      It is legal to hire someone that has a relationship with a board member, but it must be disclosed and the person with the relationship should recuse themself from the decision. That being said, in general, I would advise against these kinds of relationships. There is too much of a possibility of owners being suspicious, founded or unfounded – it happens.
