HOUSE COMMITTEE ON LOCAL GOVERNMENT

Refer House Bill 16-1149 to the Committee of the W PASS







01:38 PM -- HB16-1149



Representative Melton presented HB16-1149 concerning budget reporting exemptions for homeowners associations (HOAs). Under current law, common interest communities (referred to in the residential context as HOAs) established prior to the 1992 enactment of the Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act (CCOIA) are exempt from certain budget reporting provisions. The bill removes this exemption and requires that the executive boards of HOAs that predate CCOIA: provide a summary of a proposed budget to each unit owner; hold a meeting for unit owners to consider the proposed budget; and continue using the most recent approved budget if there is a veto of the proposed budget by a majority of unit owners. Representative Melton distributed an informational handout (Attachment A), a document of HOA assessments (Attachment B), a letter from East Hatchet Ranch HOA, Inc. (Attachment C), and a letter from an HOA member (Attachment D).
