HOA Legal Advice

Looking for some legal advice with this issue.

Our HOA consist of sixteen units.
The HOA board voted to have our complex tented at a cost of close to $25k. The president of the board signed a contract with Terminix as the vendor, which many believe was under duress as the salesman for Terminix was at the meeting where the contract was signed.
The Terminix contract has a 3 day cancelation period, which the board did not exercise. At the meeting where the contract was signed, I as one of the owners expressed my complete disagreement with the decision and asked for more time, the president of the board voted to proceed and sign the contract and to not put the vote out to the owners.
According to the CC&R’s the board should have put this for an association vote as the expense was not accounted for in the budget, and how it was going to be paid back to the reserves.
At this point there are approx 7 owners who are in completely against doing the tenting which 1, expensive, 2, an inconvenience, 3, and according to two of the three quotes unnecessary.
What is the best recourse from the board and association to cancel the contract with the Terminix vendor?
No money has been paid to Terminix. The tentative date for the tenting is less than one month away.
I and a few of the owners are looking for some advice with how to handle this situation, from a legal standpoint.
The board is looking for a way out of the mess they created as there is now a firestorm brewing.
Thanks so much.

The Clean Green Guy announces its Alpha Release

The Clean Green Guy announces its Alpha Release

The Alpha release of the Clean Green Guy’s website has been announced and is open to the public. It is in a limited mode, allowing users to get involved in their Thought Leadership section.

Jul 27, 2009 – LOS ANGELES, CA — The Clean Green Guy™ ( a socially responsible Triple-Bottom Line company which operates a B2B website focused on deal-making in the green space, announced that it is now in Alpha release. The first section opened to the public is Thought Leadership, where users can read articles written by experts, join in on discussions, and participate in making sense of the green economy. Additionally, a section featuring the company’s Logs, updated weekly, will be available for users to read. These logs, similar to “blogs,” are written by Clean Green Guy’s Thought Leadership experts, each of whom have a unique perspective on what impacting the Triple Bottom Line means and how we can all make sense of green.

When fully functioning, Clean Green Guy will set itself apart from other sites in the green movement with its Deal Marketplace, which has been designed as an online investor road show for clean and green companies. Furthermore, instead of operating solely a virtual service, Clean Green Guy is working on organizing and leading on-the-ground events featuring deal screening and paired with expert speaker panels on topics such as sustainability, cleantech investing and triple bottom line.

The company plans to capitalize on growing interest from venture capital and private equity firms that despite the current economic volatility are eager to find new industries in which to invest. Coupled with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which will spend US$70 billion on tax credits and grants encouraging clean and green technologies through 2010, Clean Green Guy’s executive team is confident that the site’s release is perfectly timed. Outside the United States, European Union mandates for increased development of non-fossil based fuel, and interest in clean and green technologies in emerging economies from Brazil to India, will groom Clean Green Guy as a resource for “green collar” professionals around the world.

“Entrepreneurs are actively seeking opportunities to enter the green economy. We are a platform in which they shall be able to use to launch their businesses and also connect with others in order to build successful ventures which will help in impacting the triple bottom line,” said Nikhil R. Jain, Clean Green Guy’s founder and CEO.

Clean Green Guy™ is an Artilient Labs™ company and has used the Labs methodology to achieve Alpha release. Artilient Labs has also participated in the Series A funding of Clean Green Guy. The company’s website is
