In the course of research in preparation for starting the common area beach project, the Board determined that the PBE POA Bylaws now in effect were not in compliance with the Virginia Code, Chapter 26, the Property Owners’ Association Act, VA Code 55-508ff.
The areas of non-compliance were minor and were the result of changes in the statute since the PBE POA was formed in 1989. The Board formed a committee that consulted with an attorney who worked with property owners’ associations. The committee then revised the bylaws.
These revised bylaws are not in effect until they are:
- Approved by 2/3 of the members who are eligible to vote (that is, dues and assessments are paid, not delinquent), and,
- The revised bylaws after approval by the membership are recorded at the Clerk’s office, Northumberland County Circuit Court.
Here is a link to the revised bylaws. The revised sections are highlighted in yellow bold italic print.
In a few days, we will send a survey to all PBE POA members asking for you to review and vote on the revised bylaws. If you wish to vote now, after reviewing the bylaws, please send your vote by email to the POA email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
