On 30 March, 2022, the AGM of the EUC Costa Esuri was held.
We have previously reported on this meeting.
As we believe there were serious irregularities at this meeting (and given that the Minutes of the AGM have even now not been published), on 30 April, 2022, CERA filed an appeal with the City of Ayamonte, challenging the call and all the resolutions that might be adopted from the Meeting.
You may recall how a group of owners were denied access to the vote count, quoting the Personal Data Protection Act as a reason.
This seemed unacceptable to us, because the EUC’s bylaws say that the votes must be public. When a hand is raised to vote, we all know who and what each of us is voting for. There is, therefore, no justification for preventing owners who attended the meeting from attending the count.
The members of the EUC Governing Council do not have special powers to assign this privilege to themselves – they are owners on Esuri, like all the other attendees. Therefore, why are they allowed to hold the count, but other owners are not?
The most absurd thing is that, during this count, an employee of the Administration is usually present. This person is not a member of the EUC and is not bound by any confidentiality clause. However, he manages a property administration company and, therefore, can access all our data.
What we also do not understand is that, as of this post, almost two months after the AGM, the Minutes have not yet been published. What reasons does the EUC have for depriving owners of this information?
One of the reasons may be that, at that meeting, the audit of accounts for the years 2018 onwards and also the budget presented by the Council could have been approved (and this stands for as long as the Judges do not issue their judgment).
Without publishing the Minutes, and without the owners knowing if the proposed budget has been authorised, the EUC Council is already putting it into effect, using our money on issues that are the responsibility of the Town Hall (sports area, children’s playgrounds etc.)
However, as far as we know, nothing is being done in relation to the audit of accounts. This was also subject to approval, which the EUC Council said they themselves supported and whose forecasted cost would be considerably lower than the works being carried out on the children’s playgrounds.
Is it that the EUC Council, as usual, denies with its actions what its words say and has no interest in having the accounts audited?”
