Internet/cabe repair access on weekends in a coopApr 11, 2019

Our building has always permitted repairs to cable/internet (by Spectrum. TW etc) on weekends or whenever without approval.
Suddenly they are claiming no internet repairs may take place on weekends though these type of repairs are not disturbing to anyone.

How can this be?

Why don't you ask the Board why they made this decision?

It was random - DM Apr 12, 2019

The house rules only state not work on apts by contractors on weekends. The Board just made this up.

I understand what you're saying about House Rules, but your answer implies that you did not flat out directly ask the Board why. That's the only way to be sure of the Board's reasons - not to mention it would also provide documentation if some chicanery was taking place.

As a Board member, I would certainly expect someone to stop and ask me why this type of decision was made if it happened in my co-op - and I better have a good answer for that shareholder.

Do yourself a favor. Stop guessing and ask a Board member.

I am not guessing and it is not a house rule - DM Apr 14, 2019

It is not a guess. This is not a house rule. The head of the board is making an arbitrary decision. In fact, she has a history of this. All I want to know is if anyone has heard of this.

I'm not saying that I don't believe you. I AM saying that, as a Board member, I will tell you that 99% of everything Board-related is legal.

So you'd better be able to prove that what you're saying is true, such as "she has a history of this." Can you prove this to an attorney? You'll need documentation, which is the best way to prove anything.

If your Board has an email address, then I suggest that you email the Board with your original question. It's a valid question. Then they MUST reply. There's your documentation. Without it your point will be hard to prove.

Good luck to you.

Internet/cabe repair access on weekends in a coop - peoples choice #1 Apr 12, 2019

If my cable was down and I worked all day and off on weekends you better believe I'd let them in to fix my cable & internet.
What is wrong with these boards? They give co-ops and condos a bad name. My co-op has a bad name crazy is one another is they keep raising maintenance and collects high assessments.
Like to know if it was them what they would do. Sorry letting off steam. Best of Luck.

They should be able to make emergency repairs on weekends, alot of people are starting to get telephone service with the cable company and in case of an emergency they would not be able to call for help.

cable provider work times - pk May 21, 2019

I would just like to share that Verizon came to my neighbor on Saturday, when the management office is closed. The Super is on call. They nicked the sprinkler system pipe in the hall and flooded the area in front of our doors. I think they should work when the management office is there.
