Why it’s true
The clubhouse expansion required a vote of the homeowners.
“Mr. Rodrigues reported that he and Mrs. Hassler attended mediation to settle the lawsuit filed against Lake Charles by M&R construction for terminating the company’s contract to serve as general contractor on the Harbour Isles roofing project. The suit was settled for $77,500.00 of which $27,500.00 would be paid by Lake Charles insurance carrier.”
I don’t know about the transfer of funds which followed, or the mention of insurance policies covering this and that, but it sure sounds to me like, one way or another, this cost Lake Charles some money.
As regards the Trugreen “settlement”, I recently sent the following invoice to Steve Satin:
You will notice the board admitted that they paid Trugreen $40,000.00 for work that was never performed. Only a board with as twisted a sense of logic as ours can pay for work that was never done and come out with a feeling of accomplishment. The actions of the board did not save us 45,000.00, it cost us 40,000.00. And I’m still waiting for my check for 40,000.00 from Steve.
