We've seen worse ideas, but a proposed law that would govern condominium rules in Ohio and make it a crime for the volunteer condo association board members to forget to post meeting times and file paperwork is one lousy proposal.
Jerry Fraley, president of the Hunters Glen Condo Association in Norwalk, and Darcy Mehling Good, an attorney with Kaman and Cusimano who works with condo associations, said earlier this month the legislation is over-reaching and not necessary.
“This would be charting new territory,” Good said. “It’s big government at its worst”
Fraley said it’s already difficult to recruit good people who will volunteer their time to serve on a condo board.
“Who are you going to get to open yourself to criminal prosecution?” he said. “Not me. I’m gone”
