Florida HOA CAM writes:

Per Board Member request, Since the Board has not been able to fill the vacant 5th seat on the Board, the Board will need to be decreased to 3 Members. With this said, XXX or YY will need to step down as a Board Member as to not have control of the Board as part of the Developers per previously received legal opinion. We will need to receive a resignation.

What reason is there to compel or require a reduction in board members? There has not been a meeting called so there has not been an attempt to fill the seat.

    It would be difficult to know without reading the mentioned legal opinion, but usually these boards have odd members so that they can't have a split vote. – Ron Beyer Feb 15 at 20:58
  • Board member #5 quit. This particular legal opinion is from a lawyer not a judge. – gatorback Feb 15 at 21:51

    There are currently four members, but the opinion says one of two members need to leave... is that because the two are developers, and there's a rule saying developers need to be a minority? My guess is there's some rule about board composition that's being triggered. – Ask About Monica Feb 16 at 0:29
  • The quoted section is not an opinion but a claim from a non-lawyer / non-judge. kbelder question is on track, however, I am unable to find anything in the statues that compel. – gatorback Feb 21 at 19:04
