Live in superDec 10, 2019

Our co-op has a live in super for way over 20 yrs. for the last few yrs. he has been very lacked and sends the handyman in his place. A couple of times a shareholder will be knocking on his door, no answer. So I called him on his cell he comes out of his apt. and straight in front of us.
With new equipment and 85% shareholders have renovated their apts. he is not needed 24/7 if anything he should be on part time and be replaced by the handyman. My question is how do we get everyone on board to agree to sell his given apt. and hire an emergency company after 5PM-8PM since the record shows the hotline will instruct the shareholder what to do or wait until the super comes around at 8AM. FYI if he comes at night he smells from beer and saids don't call at night.

Just clean the mess ... - REAPLLC Dec 11, 2019

Sounds like you just really need to get rid of the super, ASAP. Questions come to my mind... Union/Nonunion? What is the manager doing in all this?
Why would you want to sell the apartment? How many units are in the building? Do you need the handyman also, or just an adept superintendent?

Live in super - peoples choice #1 Dec 14, 2019

REAPLLC- We are Union Managing agent needs to also go they are also to comfortable after 12 yrs. the agent also calls the super before they come to our building. Thats when the super starts to do things so he can see him doing work.
If we don't have a live in super and higher a company to be on emergency call 24/7 Why not sell the apt? We have a great handyman and porter, like I said the handyman does 99% of the supers job.
