Last August, 60 of Lakeport’s 82 owners returned ballots to vote on six proposed changes to Lakeport’s Bylaws. All of them passed, and the current version is posted at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1yBt5uPknaFcWlO1FDaKJyhqOnMmnVfIk/view.
In case you missed it, here are the results:
AMENDMENT 1 - Allow annual meetings and special meetings of owners to be held electronically instead of in person.
AMENDMENT 2 - Allow Board meetings to be held electronically instead of in person during a state of emergency.
AMENDMENT 3 - Authorize the Board to conduct external home inspections, a standard practice of most Reston HOAs.
AMENDMENT 4 - Add duties for the Board president (to serve as spokesperson) and the Board secretary (to maintain records).
AMENDMENT 5 - Delete paragraph that had prohibited owners who do not live in Lakeport from voting at Annual and Special meetings of owners.
Yes=42, No=17, Abstain=1
AMENDMENT 6 - Amend various sections to make stylistic and minor changes to text.
