Cooperatives may have been created as a form of affordable first time homeownership but how can we maintain them today? Shareholders haven't a clue as to what they bought and educational forums should be given to introduce them to the benefits as a investor. We cannot move forward or voice our opinions if we can't get a quorum for years. Our Board makes decisions about how our money is being spent without informing us . Dual boilers were installed with the set up outside the front windows of a elderly resident in front of the building. It looks hideous!! Could that jeopardize her health if fumes leaked out ? Governor Hochul would like to phrase out gas so where would that leave buildings that converted to dual boilers to save money. Where can shareholders get information to help fight to protect our investments without hiring a lawyer? We are left out in the cold because we have no where or any one to turn to. Please don't advise us to turn to our attorney!!!Join the Conversation Comments (2)
