She did inform me that our Association was working with Westmoreland County concerning this issue, and they are also considering allowing improved lot owners to have the same rights concerning leasing as unimproved lot owners. She also informed me that this is the way it was done, according to our rules and regulations. I downloaded the only copy of this document from their official website, and it simply is not covered in this document or any of our other documents that I can find. This restriction is extremely close to discrimination, based on what now seems to be two types of membership within the Glebe Harbor-Cabin Point Sanitary District.
In other words, a unimproved lot owner can lease their lots at the going price, $250.00, to help recoup the additional tax that we now pay to Westmoreland County. To restrict or forbid a Member that has an improved lot from being able to do the same, is placing that Member in a different class of Membership. This is in fact discrimination in its purest form. This is the legal definition of discrimination:
Since I could not find any official documents that placed this restriction on improved lot owners, when I replied back to our President of the Glebe Harbor-Cabin Point Association, I asked her to specifically supply me with our official documents so I could have this needed paperwork and read it for myself. I have yet to hear back from her, which leads me to believe that this document does not exist. Westmoreland County is aware of my request, as the President included them in her response to my original request. If and when she does reply back, showing me this requested document, I will edit this post as to what I received and what it states.In Constitutional Law, the grant by statute of particular privileges to a class arbitrarily designated from a sizable number of persons, where no reasonable distinction exists between the favored and disfavored classes. Federal laws, supplemented by court decisions, prohibit discrimination in such areas as employment, housing, voting rights, education, and access to public facilities. They also proscribe discrimination on the basis of race, age, sex, nationality, disability, or religion. In addition, state and local laws can prohibit discrimination in these areas and in others not covered by federal laws.
