Before adopting or amending an Operating Rule or changing the fine schedule the board must provide notice of a proposed rule change at least 28 days before making the rule change. (Civ. Code §4360(a).
Policies and procedures are not the same as rules. Rules tell residents what they can and cannot do, a violation of which can result in penalties. A policy or procedure describes how things are done.
The Board may consider a more conservative approach and treat all policies and procedures the same as any operating rule change and give membership the same 28 day notice for review and comment. This approach will avoid any technical challenges in subsequent enforcement action.
