06/17/20 Legal Update from Mary Beth Huffman, ILPOA PresidentJune 17, 2020
We have information we would like to share regarding case number 19CF-CC00003. In the case of Indian Hills Civic Association and plaintiffs Brunts, O’Fallon, Wideman, and Williams vs. Indian Lake Property Owners Association (defendant), the judgement on Count II Declaratory Judgement was as follows:
- Annual Assessments declared under the BUR may only be
amended by 2/3 of the property owners in writing and are the only
assessments in which a lien upon real estate is applicable.
- The bridge design and construction assessments through
our by-laws were passed in accordance with our
by-laws and were legal and within the powers of the board of
- Boat registration fees and fines provisions are not
considered assessments and therefore valid under the rules and regulations
of the ILPOA.
- Interest provisions are not considered an assessment
and therefore legal and within the powers of the ILPOA.
For Count III Injunctive Relief, Judgement was declared in favor of the Defendant, ILPOA.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or another board
member directly should you have any further questions.
I am hopeful and optimistic that we can all move forward,
together as ONE community.
Love the Lake,
