LAS VEGAS (AP) — State officials have taken the unprecedented step of removing an entire homeowners association board in North Las Vegas.
The three-member Autumn Chase Homeowners Association board was disciplined Tuesday after the Nevada Commission for Common-Interest Communities found they committed hundreds of violations of state law, including failing to prepare financial statements or hold board elections for their 46-homeowner group.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/PmJZSy) board members Joseph Bitsky, his wife, Barbara Bitsky, and Hellen Murphy were ordered to surrender the association's credit card and turn over all association records to the state.
The decision comes amid an unrelated federal investigation into a massive scheme to take over 11 southern Nevada homeowners association boards and steer business to favored companies.
Twenty-seven people have pleaded guilty so far in that case.
