There are a number of ways that the board can do to help the Villa owners. The first item that comes to my mind is to cancel the restaurant plan. Just by doing immediately saves the homeowners $300,000 which would be more than enough to assist the Villa homeowners. This restaurant project is a failure from the beginning, which is acknowledged by the board. They have stated that for the first four years after the opening, homeowners can expect the restaurant to lose money. Also, this board rejected to send all homeowners a survey in order to determine their input. Their rationale – it would save the board $5,000. The real answer is that the homeowners would vote to have a restaurant, but not have one dollar come from our pockets. And who in their right mind would knowingly open an establishment that is doomed to failure?
