WTCM BRIEF #5
Wednesday, August 09, 2017

The fifth Working Town Council Meeting (WTCM) of 2017 was held May 16th.  The meeting was called to order at 6:28 pm and business conducted as follows:

  • Town Council held an Executive Session to review HSTA contracts.  The Council unanimously approved a revised Association Management Inc. contract resulting in cost savings for the community.
  • In 2014, the Idaho Legislature adopted senate Bill 1310 which placed limits on fines issued by property owners’ associations.  The law, which became Idaho Code Section 55-115, placed fining requirements on associations.  Therefore in order to enforce Hidden Springs CC&R’s, HSTA and Town Council consulted with a property attorney and identified an alternative procedure.  Council unanimously approved the revised procedure and agreed to share it with the community at the June 14th Town Meeting prior to implementation.

CC&R Enforcement Procedures
Wednesday, August 09, 2017

In 2014, The Idaho Legislature adopted Senate Bill 1310 which placed limits on fines issued by property owners’ associations. The law, which became Idaho Code Section 55-115, placed fining requirements on associations.

Under the new regulation many associations, including Hidden Springs, lost the ability to impose fines for violations of an association’s CC&Rs unless the authority to impose the fine was clearly set forth in the CC&Rs.

Therefore, as of July 2014, the HSTA board could not adopt fines through a resolution or some other act short of a full scale amendment to the recorded CC&Rs.

Losing this ability has made it difficult to enforce CC&Rs in the neighborhood. In pursuit of a solution, HSTA consulted with a property attorney for legal guidance on enforcing our CC&Rs.  Read More.
