Complaint: On july 24.2013, the riverwalk of the palm beaches homeowners association inc. sent a notice of special members meeting to amend the declartion of conenants inorder the change the food store/gas station into a cafe. The board rented the store/minicafe to rich hardy who owned the empire state deli, who ran it rent free for 11 months, since the store was always empty due to rich hardy limited funds, the riverwalk association wanted to asess all home owners 120.00 debit card to support the cafe. The riverwalk homeowners association wrote a half a page reguarding mr. hardys back ground. no where did it state his true finances , the board knew he had jugements against him from his deli, yet the board breach its duty not to tell the homeowners. The board promised to protect the payment against lost for 1 year if Mr. hardy couldnot furnish the promised merchandise,Yet when the payment booklets came, it stated, once paid the association resumes no responsibility for the funds. which is an unethical and illegal scheme to finance the new cafe. On top of it, the riverwalk association was served a writ to garnish Mr. Hardy funds on nov 12 2013 by the 15 judical circuit court. In its monthly board meeting, nov 19 2013 the board never talked about the garnishment, yet encouraged every one to pay. since this development is made up of senior citizens and are to old to fight they give in. this board certainly knew , or should have known, in compliance with its fiduciary obligation, that this cafe operator had serious financial and legal problems that might be imputed to the riverwalk homeowners. so whether itis called rank incompetence or purposeful malfeasance , it is inexcusable. their joint and several failure to so advise the homeownwers before their nov 12 financial assessment demand, conveyed through the u.s. postal service constitutes deception and fraud. this board needs to reverse this malfeasant fraudulent debit card scheme immediately or resign. The homeowners are not aware that bankruptcy means lossing 164,000.
