BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A man who claims to be an employee of Woodfield Country Club is suing Woodfield after his car was “flooded” during a torrential rain storm. He was, according to the suit, ordered to use his personal vehicle to deliver food from Woodfield’s restaurant to homeowners in the community of nearly 1300 homes.

The plaintiff, Joseph Stolarz, says the demand of his supervisors to deliver food during what the community calls a ”red alert,” or time when no one is supposed to be on the road in Woodfield, cost him $5,747.87. His insurance company, according to the suit, refused to pay the claim since his personal car was being used to deliver food while he was working for Woodfield Country Club.

Stolarz wants Woodfield to pay up and is suing in Palm Beach County small claims court. The alleged incident occurred in 2020. The suit was filed in March of 2022 after Woodfield apparently continued to refuse Stolarz’s request for help. A hearing is set for Monday.

“Approximately 5:30 PM I took a few food orders to homes at Woodfield country club properties,” wrote Stolarz in the suit. ”While driving it started to rain; the rain got heavy followed by thunder and lighting. While this was happening, I was never contacted by anyone to return to the club house, and later finding out I was driving under a red alert- which means no one is allowed to be out driving. As time went by it started raining harder and as I was delivering food to one house, I decided to return to the club house. While backing out of the driveway I turned into the street which was filled with high-standing water. I tried to pass by through it, but my car ended up getting stuck. My car stuck in the flooded streets stalled out and would not start. I called the club house and spoke to Val Dullovi and told him my situation. He then spoke to management, and they had said that no one was allowed to come out and pick me up, because we were in a red alert. I was left outside on the street by myself in red alert conditions with nobody at all helping me.”

Woodfield Country Club offers food delivery to homes in the community as part of mandatory equity, HOA and other fees. A local real estate agent provided BocaNewsNow.com with a list of 2021-2022 fees that every homeowner is required to pay.

2021-2022 mandatory Woodfield Country Club fees, according to local real estate agent.

Part of the equity contribution is returned when a homeowner sells their home. There is also a mandatory $2500 food and beverage minimum that homeowners must spend. That mandatory food spend can be used to have food delivered to your home.

Woodfield Country Club did not file a response to Stolarz’s claim. Read the complete lawsuit, below.
