Giving notice to the strata: When can council members say no?

Dear Tony:  The president of our strata council has decided on a policy that any type of notice given to the strata corporation, or a request for information or hearings, must go through her or it is deemed not to be received. As a result, she has failed to notify the rest of council about requests for hearings, a request for a hardship exemption, several requests for alterations to strata lots and demands for information.
