    We held our first statutory road association meeting last month and I just realized that I handed the warrant notifications to several of my neighbors. Are there any potential legal problems, since the statute requires that the meeting notice must be mailed or emailed? Everyone was contacted and nobody has complained.

    It seems to me that if you are fortunate enough to live in a community where people trust each other and you trust them not to raise the issue of there being no "paper trail" proving you "didn't notify xyz person," and especially if they indeed showed up at the meeting, you're OK. I suppose if you want to bother them you could ask them to sign a statement saying they got the warrant notification; that's up to you. But the statute is not supposed to make things difficult for communities to stay communities. MARA's three core values are protecting the environment, preserving community, and providing access. You may well be doing all three!
