"At the last meeting, we lost a quorum," says George Hoyt, the maintenance supervisor. "So they're having a meeting to handle those five (remaining) issues only." Hoyt says the dog issue is not on the agenda and is, anyway, non-negotiable. But, he explains, in practice no one with a dog is going to be made to give it up. "We are just covering our backside," he says. "If a person gets bit, the first [thing] they do is sue Armistead Gardens. Who has the deep pockets?" He says it's happened in the past and, just last week, a postal worker was bitten by a pit mix owned by a resident on White Avenue.
