Energy company refuses to recognize HOA authority

In 2003, she said, the HOA approved a resolution to assess a $5,000 bond against any trip across Grass Mesa roads by vehicles weighing more than 75,000 pounds. The resolution was formally recorded with the Garfield County Clerk in 2004.

Encana, however, is refusing to recognize the resolution.

“This was never agreed to and was dropped,” Hock wrote on April 10, referring to the resolution.

“They don't have to agree to anything,” Brock said. “It's a resolution for all the owners up there,” She noted that Encana has purchased five lots in the Grass Mesa subdivision.
Unfortunately, we don't recognize HOAs as a legitimate form of local government. Go pound sand.

"According to [HOA board member Mike] McGuire, the association's attorney has assured the homeowners that the resolution is enforceable."

(1) I would be surprised if the association's attorney have told the "homeowners" anything, since HOA attorneys do not answer to the homeowners

(2) Of course the association's attorney is going to encourage litigation. The attorney will get paid whether or not the association prevails in court.
