Stronach A petition for recall is being circulated against Comstock Park Association Board members President John Weiss, Vice-President Ralph Harris and Treasurer Margaret Long. Association members have been concerned about how the financial and busi- ness matters are being handled for the homeowners board. Also, on Monday, July 14, Weiss, Harris and Long, allegedly, verbally resigned theirpositions. According to association members polled, this procedure is not legal. Resignations must be in writ- ten form. Comstock Mobile Home Park, located on High- way 372 and Blagg, opened in 1971 when Articles of In- corporation were instituted by Preferred Equities Corp. P.E.C. transferred common areas to association members J.D. SINYARD- circulates petition to recall Comstock in 1994, the first board was Association board members. elected February 1993 and the organization is currently operating with a board of tour members. There is concern by some association members that the meetings are not being conducted properly. They say the board of directors did not utilize Roberts Rules of Order in conducting meetings and notifying members for special meet- ings per the C. C. & R's. Since the election of the new board members, associa- tion members felt that it was the vice-president that appeared to be running the meetings. Another concern was that many decisions are being made at executive board meetings, and not in front of the open group. According to Ken Keyes, board member, "More or less they try to go by what's right. Sometimes, they don't exactly go by Roberts Rules of Order. They have a little booklet over there, a little old pamphlet they go by." As for agendas, he commented, "And if you're not on the agenda they won't let you talk. In the beginning you wouldn't believe what went on around here." Comments we}e heard from members that the board did lack structure in conducting meetings. At the July 9 meeting, Association member, Shirley Sinyard commented on the fact that"under Robert's Rules of Order when a motion is made every person has the right to speak for five to ten minutes. We have not been doing this!" At a special meeting, March 26, a motion Was made by Harris, seconded by Long, and voted unanimously, that "People with complaints should be told to consult attorneys." Ms. Sinyard commented, "We no longer have to put up with this kind of attitude as SB 314 has passed the legislature and we do now have recourse when this Board acts like a dictator- ship." She wanted to know who wrote a memo regarding financial statement printouts not being common practice. Also, Ms. Sinyard noted that a special meeting was called for April 9 having no notice posted and was illegal. Midway, Mr. Sinyard assisted his wife in her pre- sentation. He asked the au- dience if they wanted her to quit, and at that point, a gentleman in the audience stated. "No let her finish!" Ms. Sinyard expressed concerns regarding being told to leave a special meeting, the financial health of the as- sociation and the prospect of spending money they did not have for a management fir' Her last request maa. was, "There are many men- tions of problems with the books and money. As an association member I would like to know the truth instead of all the garbage I am hear- ing from this board. If we are as financially broke as John Weiss has told us on several occasions, why did Ralph Harris spend $3,769.69 from April 8 through June 11, 1997?" In a later conversation, Ms. Sinyard commented, "Basi- cally, I won't want to imply the bookkeeping problems are all the fault of this board. It has been an ongoing problem and needs to be straightened out." Editors Note: The Comstock Association problem is a continuing issue. Comments from other members and all issues will be more thoroughly explored in future editions and the Board will be given space in the Pahrump Valley Gazette to respond. kkbd. . d Vm ms Authorized aoyal, aiccar, Siknt r4astn and Alpine Ak Deakr lklts, llap  l'arts , MoaMakes000000e. 2220 B.
