Contact 13 Investigates: HOA Hall of Shame

  KTLV Channel 13 and Investigative Reporter, Darcy Spears, have a new segmant on the evening news called "HOA Hall of Shame."  This program reveals how some of the HOAs in the valley abuse their authority, fine and harass homeowners.  Our HOA, the Autumn Chase Homeowners Association, has been selected for this news segmant.
    As some you many already know, there are a few of us homeowners who have pending complaints filed with the Ombudsman regarding the blatant CC&R and NRS 116 violations of our HOA and the current Executive Board members.  Contact 13 has done some digging of their own and chose the ACHOA to be entered into the Hall of Shame.
   HOA Hall of Shame will be aired during the Channel 13 11PM news broadcast.  Please tune in.  If you are unable to watch or record the broadcast, go to the KTLV Channel 13 website ( any day after Tuesday.
