My question involves a condominium located in the State of: Illinois / Chicago
I live in a town home in Chicago, IL. Recently our HOA has fined myself for not bringing in our garbage can after trash day. My town home backs to the city alley. In the city of Chicago millions keep the can in the alley. My can sits on the City of Chicago's property. The HOA passed a law to require owners to bring the cans inside their garage from the driveways / inner court yard. My unit isn't located in the inner court / driveways. I specifically made issue of this and was told not to worry. We objected to this rule because storing a can inside my garage has a terrible smell due to dog refuse and garbage. I have kept the can outside for 1.5 yrs without issue. Many unit owners that back to the alley keep their cans outside. I know for a fact some are not being fined while I am being fined! I do not get along with the HOA since I object to many of the new rules.
Can a HOA fine "select" unit owners? Do I have a right to see fines for March and April? I feel I've been singled out for a rule that doesn't apply to me and isn't being levied equally.
Thanks for taking the time to read this question
