F. Relationship Between Bylaws and House Policy

  1. Any item of House policy that conflicts with House Bylaws, BSC Bylaws, or applicable state/federal laws is invalid.
  2. The House Policy has a certain purview, which is outlined in the section titles below.  Any change to these section titles must be added to the bylaws (and thus requires a supermajority vote at two separate councils).
    1. The section titles are as follows: House Website, Boarders, Guests, Move-ins, Move-outs, Room and Parking Assignments, Walls, Room Reservation Process for House Events, Home Improvement Hours, Common Space Furniture, Private Space, and Discussion Groups.
  1. Each item in the House Policy must be directly relevant to the section heading it is under.

G. Fees, Fines, and Deposits

  1. A member may be uncooperative fined by any other member
    1. An uncooperative fine is a workshift or monetary fine that goes to the house account.  The fine may be levied by informing a house manager, community manager or house president of the fine, at which point they will inform the member who has been fined.
    2. The fine may be contested at council, where a simple majority vote of members present is required to reverse the fine.
  2. Members will be assessed a fee for replacement of lost keys and will be billed for failure to return key at the end of the contract period.
    1. $20 fee for lost house key
    2. $10 fee for room key

H. Severability

  1. If an item of these bylaws or the house policy is in conflict with BSC policy, state, or federal law, that item alone is invalid and severed from the bylaws or house policy.
