Proposed Legislation Would Authorize the Creation of a Fund For Infrastructure Repairs

House Bill 1061, now pending the the General Assembly, would authorize counties and municipalities in Maryland to create a fund to assist in the repair of infrastructure in condominiums and homeowner associations.  It is intended to provide for repair and rehabilitation of property that is part a condominium or homeowners association, but of is a nature that would be “traditionally maintained by the county or municipality for the benefit of the general public, including roads and stormwater management facilities.”  It would not apply to “recreational facilities used for the exclusive use or benefit of the members of a condominium association or homeowners association or their guests.”  In addition to taxes and other appropriations,  a portion of the property taxes paid by the condominium unit owners or homeowner association members would be allocated to the fund.
