Douglas County Vice-Chair Kelly G. Robinson, Commissioner of District 2, is leading a bipartisan group of county and state officials in a regional collaborative support of legislation that would protect homeowners at the local and state levels. State Rep. William K. Boddie Jr. (D-62) introduced the legislation today called “The Community Association Protection & Transparency Act (CAPT) also known as (House Bill 748). The legislation calls for more protection of Georgia homeowner rights through better operation of homeowners’ associations (HOAs) and other community governance entities statewide.
Rep. Boddie said he is proud to sponsor and stand with the Douglas County legislative delegation during the signing of HB 748. Rep. Boddie said HB 748 is a bipartisan consumer protection bill that will protect new HOA and Condominium communities from builders who do not complete or maintain amenities and other facilities before the community is ultimately turned over to the Community Association.
Rep. Boddie said he truly appreciates Rep. Micah Gravley (R-67), Rep. Roger Bruce (D-61), Rep. J. Collins (R-68), and Rep. Kimberly Alexander (D-66), co-sponsoring this significant piece of legislation. Rep. Boddie continued to express his appreciation to Douglas County District 2 Commissioner Kelly Robinson and Fulton County Commissioner Marvin Arrington, Jr. for their vision and motivation behind the HOA Community Protection Bill. Douglas County Attorney Ken Bernard was thanked in his efforts in the drafting of HB 748.
“It’s great to see all of our state legislative delegation work collaboratively to move forward with one of Douglas County’s 2018 legislative priorities and to protect our homeowners, “ Douglas County Director of External Affairs Tiffany Stewart-Stanley said. “ I look forward to continuing to work with our delegation to help HB 748 become law.”
Douglas County District 2 Commissioner Kelly G. Robinson said, “After holding community education forums (HOA Boot Camp) for the past two years, I am encouraged to learn HOA/COA regulation may change for the betterment of not only for Douglas but the entire state.”
Commissioner Robinson was proud to have the full support of the Douglas County Board of Commissioners. Commissioner Robinson said, “This would not have been possible without the unanimous support of the Douglas County Board of Commissioners, who adopted this legislation as a key priority for the 2018 General Assembly-and most importantly, the public input from my district.”
