Proposed Smoking Amendment

At the Board meeting of June 26, 2008 a motion to propose a bylaw amendment to the owners for a vote was declared passed but a question came up as to whether the vote was in fact sufficient to pass the motion. Following the meeting, the question was submitted to the Association's attorney who determined that according to the Utah Condominium Act and our Bylaws, a motion requires a majority of Trustees present (even if they abstain from voting on the motion) to pass. Inasmuch as there were six Trustees present, the three affirmative votes were not a majority of those present and was insufficient to pass the motion. Trustee Mike Gravitz, under section 4.06 of the bylaws, requested this special Board meeting be held to revisit the motion.

Following extensive discussion of the many issues surrounding the proposed bylaw amendment, including many comments from Owners present, motion was made and duly seconded to propose the amendment to the Owners for a formal vote of approval. The motion passed by a vote of six votes in favor and one vote against. With seven Trustees present, six votes in favor was determined to be a majority of those present and the motion was declared passed without objection. The proposed amendment to be voted upon by the members is as follows:

The Declaration of Condominium for American Towers, A Condominium Project, shall be and hereby is amended to include the following additional provision as numbered:

Section 7.11 Smoking Prohibition. Smoking of tobacco products in any form by any Person, Owner, Unit occupant, tenant of an Owner or guest of an Owner in any Unit, interior common areas, interior Limited Common Areas or any other interior areas of the Project, including without limitation any parking areas, shall be, and hereby is, prohibited.


The meeting adjourned at 5:00 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Mike Gravitz
