At the February 5th Killearn Homeowners Association Board meeting, the Board voted to seek a legal opinion that would support the Board’s purchase of the Killearn golf course without the approval of Killearn Estates property owners.
The Board noted in the minutes of the meeting that previous legal opinions have indicated that approval by property owners would be required before such a purchase.
A recent poll by the Board indicated property owners did not favor a purchase of the golf course.
The minutes of the February Board meeting indicate that the Board voted to allow JT Burnette to seek the answer to four questions from the “Ausley & McMullen” law firm.
The four questions were:
Does KHA have the authority to purchase the Killearn Country Club as a golf course without the vote of the membership (contrary to previous legal opinions)?
Does KHA have the authority to purchase the Killearn Country Club as a conservation easement without the vote of the membership?
Can KHA exchange common properties to offset the purchase price of Killearn Country Club with either use?
Can KHA accept Killearn Country Club as a gift for either use?
Tallahassee Reports has previously reported about an “Executive Board” meeting with Mr. Burnette.
