Condo coup fails
By BRENDAN KIRBY
Four members of the board of directors of a Hagerstown condominium association survived a Thursday night attempt to unseat them over the board's attempt to force a couple to stop baby-sitting for their great-grandson.
Some Edgewood Place Condominium owners, upset over a lawsuit filed by the board against the couple, attempted to remove the board members. But the incumbents prevailed on a 17-13 vote, said Bob Foltz, a board member who was the lone dissenter in the 4-1 decision to file the suit.
"The meeting did not go the way we would have liked it to have gone," Foltz said.
This quiet community of mostly senior citizen condo owners nestled off Edgewood Place near Dual Highway was plunged into bitter infighting over the suit, which was filed Nov. 7 in Washington County Circuit Court against Walter and Betty Nye. The suit seeks an injunction prohibiting the couple from providing child-care services.
