We wish to inform the members of the Association of new claims and demands being made by certain property owners in AOTB by letter from their lawyer dated October 1, 2013, pertaining to the platted streets adjacent to their properties. We are publishing for the community record, in pdf format available on the AOTB website, the two letters sent to us by the claimants' legal representative. The POA-AOTB Officers and Board are taking this matter very seriously and immediately coordinated with each other in emergency session on October 3, 2013.
We hope to arrive at a fair resolution and have formally conferred with the Association's legal counsel--Susan T. Ford--regarding the claims and demands made in the October 1st letters; we have also reached out to the claimants' attorney to discuss the situation. Because one of our currently sitting Board members is involved in one of these claims, we have asked that member to recuse herself from any sessions related to either of these two claims.
While we invite any and all of our members to call me at 410-268-8622, or your Vice-President, Donna Watts-Lamont at 410-971-9306, for clarification, please remember we cannot generally discuss legal strategy at this point in the proceedings. Links to the pertinent documents are on our website. Just click here.
