I'm a shareholder residing in a coop within Westchester County. I was made aware, through a friend in law enforcement, that a NYS registered sex offender is residing in the cooperative for some time now. This came as a complete shock to not only myself but to other shareholders in the building. What made it more surprising is that the mother of the offender is on the Board of Directors.
My question is does the Board have a LEGAL obligation to inform the shareholders that a NYS registered sex offender is residing in the building? If so, is there any recourse, by means of a shareholder vote, to determine if the offender is allowed to reside in the cooperative? Shouldn't the shareholders have been notified before he took residence in the coop? Any assistance or guidance from anyone is appreciated. Thanks in advance!!
