The three homeowners were frustrated as they peppered the Foothills Community Association board with questions.
By Sept. 25, it had become a ritual in some ways for Rafael deLuna III, David Randolph and Rob Doherty – and others – who had questions and concerns about why the board did, or didn’t, take action on a wide variety of issues.
On Sept. 25, the three men wanted to know why the board spent less than five minutes discussing its $2 million operating budget for the coming year before adopting it. Why it met behind closed doors for nearly an hour without stating a reason, as required by law. Why it awarded a company a $30,000 contract to print a quarterly magazine without taking bids.
