Jack has heard talk that the board has voted to continue a contract with the poorly-run lawn care company the association has contracted with for years. Rumor has it that damage was done to a window by a careless worker and a complaint has even been filed.
As the unappointed spokesperson for the condo owners, Jack has spoken numerous times to the association board president (Eric) about this issue and has asked to see the current lawn service contract and the complaint. Jackhas yet to receive any of the records he has requested and is getting more convinced that something does not add up.
Eric, the condo board president, is at his wits’ end. The pressure is on at work and his job as president of his condo association has gone well beyond a part-time commitment. He has wanted for years to step down from the board but no one seems to be willing to step up to take his place. To make matters worse, the condo troublemaker, Jack, is stirring up rumors and getting the community up in arms about the lawncare service.
On numerous occasions, Jack has cornered Eric to “discuss” his lawn care complaints. Eric has tried to explain to Jack that the owner of the lawn service company they contract with has been ill and because of this, things have fallen through the cracks. Eric has also stressed that prior to this past season the lawn care service has consistently been of good quality and at a reasonable price.
Now Jack is requesting the lawn service contract information, as well as a complaint that was filed against a lawnservice worker, which is now entering litigation. Eric continues to stall Jack in hopes he will just let this issue go.
