rules are rules.
Now's the time to offer our support...
These are the condominium rules - not local government rules. I have a homeowner's association where I live, but it's not a condo community. We are a separate community within a village. We have two private lakes and common recreation areas for use by association residents only. We are required to pay annual dues - mainly for the costs of maintaining the parks and lakes and employing life guards. Other than that - there are no rules at all!!!
