Community Falls Short of Quorum, Board Authorizes 2nd Annual Meeting/Election on May 7

Village Elections for the River Hill Community Association (RHCA) Board of Directors were held on Saturday, April 20. The outcome of 108 votes being cast fell short of the needed 172 votes to reach a quorum. As a result, a second Annual Meeting/Election will be held on Tuesday, May 7, at Claret Hall from 9 a.m.–3 p.m.

The Candidates
This year’s election is uncontested. There are two people running for two seats on the RHCA Board of Directors —Kevin Bruening and Balbir Lakhanpal. If you’re interested in the way your Annual Assessment paid to the Columbia Association is spent, how pools and playgrounds are managed, what types of social events and programs are sponsored by the village for its residents, and the financial affairs of the community, the decision-makers are those that serve on the RHCA Board of Directors.

Voter Eligibility
Residents of the Village of River Hill age 18 and older are considered members of the RHCA and are permitted to vote. Residents must bring proof of person, residency, and age to the polls. A Maryland driver’s license, Howard County voter registration card, passport, and/or a birth certificate may be used. Tenants and new residents must present a deed, lease, or utility bill addressed to the individual at their River Hill residence.
