400. VIOLATION PENALTIES & PROCEDURES

It is the policy of the Rogers Bay Property Owners Association (the "Association”) to protect the

rights and privileges of the co-owners (“members”) and to enforce the governing documents

(Covenants, Bylaws and Rules and Regulations) of Rogers Bay. Pursuant to the authority vested

in the Board of Directors of the Association by the Covenants and its Bylaws, the following

acts, the acts or omissions of his/her family, guests, renters or renters invitees.

401. AUTHORITY TO DIRECT ENFORCEMENT

402. THE VIOLATION PROCEDURE

1. All Incident Reports will be recorded, dated and filed by the Property Manager.

2. Notice of Violation/Hearing: A Violation Notice will be issued by the Property

Manager if sufficient evidence of a violation exists warranting the imposition of a

penalty, fine or action at law. In such case, the member shall be notified in

writing by First Class Mail of the Board’s intent to seek compliance. Such notice

shall state the specific violation, nature of the penalty, and any imposed fines or

actions considered. Such notices shall also provide for a hearing set within 30-

days of such notice. Upon written notice by the member of his/her inability to

attend the hearing on said date, a reasonable effort shall be made by the Board of

Directors to accommodate the member on another date to be mutually agreed

upon by the member and the Board.

Directors, and shall be an open or closed session at the discretion of the member.

403. PENALTIES

not exceed one-hundred dollars ($100.00). If the co-owner neglects to pay the

fee. Such fines and fees shall be assessments secured by liens under N.C. State

statute G.S. 47F-3-116. If community service is recommended, as a penalty by the

Violations Committee and approved by the Board it must be completed within 30

days. If an extension is needed, it must be approved by the Violation Committee,

500. MEMBER COMPLAINTS

The Association’s Declaration and Bylaws and the Rules and Regulations define the standard of

living residents may expect from our Campground environment. These documents are designed

to protect the rights of each resident. However, policy and procedure cannot replace courtesy and

the need to communicate with each other. Prior to filing a complaint about a neighbor, please

take the time to have a personal discussion. Neighbors talking with each other, in a nonthreatening

way, can achieve quicker results in a friendlier fashion. Our documents are our

foundation. Our community spirit lies within the hands of each resident.

If talking does not resolve the issue, the co-owner may submit a complaint to the Association

using the Concern/Complaint Form.

1. Complaints against anyone violating the rules are to be made to the Property

Manager or any Board Member using the Incident/Complaint Form.

2. The complaint must be in writing, specify the date of the incident, and must

contain the signature of the individual filing the complaint. Your name will

remain confidential.

501. COMPLAINT PROCESS

When the Board receives a complaint, they shall review the complaint, gather additional

information regarding the complaint if necessary, and take appropriate action. This may

result in a Violation Notice and/or a Request to Correct letter to the co-owner.

600. DISPUTE RESOLUTIONS

Prior to engaging in litigation, there is a process which must be considered:
