Can the association fine an owner without a hearing for repeated parking in a fire lane? Our board has not had time to arrange for towing and wants to fine the owner.
Hearings are required before fines are levied. You can schedule hearings
at your regular board meetings or for special meetings. If the person fails to appear, the board may impose penalties based on the evidence presented, i.e., testimony by the manager that the car was parked in the fire lane or a photo of the illegally parked car.
