As if their learning curve alone is not enough, members of the new Columbia Council who took office last week have inherited the remnants of a 2-month-old mess that thrust the Columbia Association's future into question. The homeowners group has no president, no general counsel and no vice president for community relations. Another vice president who normally oversees Columbia's 3,100 acres of open space has shifted roles and is serving as acting president. The unusual confluence of events has left the council's 10 members -- five of whom are new to the board -- facing decisions that likely will affect the long-term direction of the unincorporated city.
