Coercion by BOD
Tue Mar 2, 2010 21:53

Our board of directors has just issued a notice to all shareholders threatening to increase our monthly maintenance bill by $100 a month unless and until we agree to let the pest control people spray pesticide in our apartments. We have no rodent or pest problems in our apartment and have never signed up to have it sprayed. The program has until now been voluntary but now they are insisting on building wide compliance with their request. I am allergic to any chemicals including perfumes let alone toxic pesticides. Can they enforce this on us on a mandatory basis? If so, what are our legal rights?
