Some time Sunday morning the Tahoe Keys Property Owners Association will be governed by a whole new group of people.
Five of the seven board members were recalled earlier this month.
Homeowners in this South Lake Tahoe enclave have until 5pm Aug. 31 to vote for a new board. Six people are on the ballot, with two write-ins qualifying. Jay Bushrow is the only current board member on the ballot.
However, Sam Pavone and Jim Siegfried, who were recalled, are also on the ballot.
Much of the lack of harmony among residents is tied to what people can do with docks. Between lawsuits, memorandums of understanding and accusatory letters the bottom line is Keys residents have to follow the rules of the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency when it comes to docks. For now, that means no new ones will be built.
The people advocating for the recall believed too many property rights were being given up as rules were being created. The recall, according to information given to Lake Tahoe News, has cost the TKPOA approximately $6,000.
TKPOA General Manager Greg Feet did not return multiple phone calls.
Ballots will be counted at the annual homeowners’ meeting on Sept. 1 at 9am, with the announcement and appointment of directors the following morning at 9am.
