Unfortunately, I cannot put the budget up on the blog but I can mount my questions about it. I sent my questions to Betsy Gori ,the treasurer of the board, and she did take the time to answer . If you are an owner you have received your copy by mail.
I also question now why it was not officially audited and not given to us in April when it was due. I received my copy in October.
