English term or phrase: levy
El cliente no contesta mis correos y en media hora es mi deadline. No quiero excusas para descuentos en el pago, así que espero me puedan ayudar.

La palabra aparece en la siguiente oración:

The fence on the levy needs to be repaired or replaced.

El documento es una acta de reunión de la junta directiva de una asociación de viviendas.

No veo cómo cabe "levy" en esta oración. No sé si se trata de un error de tipeo u otra cosa.
