Subject: Formal Complaint Pertaining to Non-Compliance with FS 718.112 by Mizner Court Condominium Association, Inc. and Lang Management, Inc.
October 5, 2023
Dear Board of Directors of Mizner Court Condominium Association, Inc., and Representatives of Lang Management, Inc.,
I am writing to formally lodge a complaint concerning multiple apparent violations of Florida Sunshine Laws and Florida Statute 718 by the Mizner Court Condominium Association, Inc., specifically regarding the provisions outlined in FS 718.112. According to FS 718.112, a 48-hour notice is obligatory for all committee meetings, particularly those that tender recommendations to the Board of Directors.
It has come to attention that during the Board Meetings held in August 2023 and September 2023, the Chairperson of the ‘Construction Advisory Committee,’ Ms. Margo Green, presented recommendations for the engagement of an Owners representative for the Upper Deck project (estimated between $3 to $5 million) and a Roofing Consultant (estimated between $2 to $3 million).
Ms. Green, a professional attorney and a former board member, is well-versed with the statutory requirements, thus rendering any claim of ignorance untenable. The gravity of the recommendations underscores a possible intentional oversight. During her presentations at the aforementioned board meetings, Ms. Green candidly discussed the Committee’s private telephonic discussions which were convened to arrive at these recommendations. These concealed deliberations and subsequent recommendations were conducted in stark violation of Florida Statute 718, thereby flouting the transparency and notification standards stipulated therein.
These clandestine meetings and the resulting recommendations pose a potential financial liability amounting to millions of dollars to the owners of Mizner Court, thus necessitating an immediate rectification of these non-compliance issues.
I implore the Board and Lang Management, Inc., to take immediate actions to rectify these violations and ensure strict adherence to Florida Statute 718 henceforth to uphold the integrity, transparency, and fiduciary responsibility required in the management of Mizner Court Condominium Association.
Thank you for your prompt attention to these serious matters.
