An Idea For Amy Vickers
A Wallsboro man who sat perched on a 68-foot radio tower behind his home for a week to protest being forced to join a newly formed homeowners association has ended his weeklong demonstration.
Wayne Spires climbed down about 1 p.m. Monday after receiving news that Circuit Judge John Bush is still researching his case.
The River Falls Homeowners Association sued Spires, Edward Abernathy Jr., Sherri Mummey, Johnny Bass and Christopher Scott for refusing to join and pay a $1,500 road maintenance fee assessed by the association.
“Some people paid and they didn’t want to,” Spires said. “They were forced to because they didn’t want to lose their home.”
Seriously, I made A’s in Contracts (Prof. Bishop) and Property (Prof. Langham – my all time favorite class, that dude was hilarious), but I can not figure out how a homeowners association formed after the affected parties bought the homes can compel any current homeowner to join or to pay fees for anything. Anyone out there more familiar with dirt law have any ideas? What is the basis for the association’s claim?
