The October election for the Lakeside Board of Directors failed to reach the state-mandated quorum of 143 ballots cast. As a result, the new board of directors that would have been installed at the Oct. 21 general HOA meeting could not be seated. The current Board will continue to serve until the next quorum level can be reached. That level, which is set at 72 ballots, must be reached by the next Board meeting on Nov. 18 in order for the new Board to be installed.
Homeowners who have not cast ballots are urged to vote so that the lower quorum level can be met. As of the Oct. 21 meeting, 56 ballots had been mailed in and three ballots were handed in at the meeting. Three owners at the meeting received and filled out ballots, bringing the total to 62. Ten more ballots need to be received by Optimum in order to reach the quorum level of 72 ballots. If you haven’t cast a ballot please do so. If you need a ballot, call Shannon Thornhill at (714) 508-9070 x228 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
