Linda,

According to a Condo Law column by lawyer Mark Bogen in the Sun
Sentinel (one of the links that David posted) :

"Unless the association documents give the board the authority to
fine, the board is powerless to levy a fine."

"Assuming the board has the authority to fine, it cannot levy one
until it gives reasonable notice to the unit owner and an opportunity
to be heard before a committee of other unit owners."

"If the committee does not agree with the fine, the unit owner is not
required to pay it."

I don't get the impression from your posts that you had a
hearing...did you? Seems like a lot hinges on the actual wording of
the specific covenants governing your condo association. Do you
have a copy of this document?

It also seems to me that you ought to get a lawyer. At the very
least, talk to some listed on that SHORN site link -
