Bill that expedites co-op review process becomes law in Westchester

December 20, 2018 09:46AM

Westchester County has passed a law that will speed up the co-op review process, despite concerns from those who felt it didn’t do enough to make the process more transparent, LoHud reported. The bill, passed last month and signed into law last week by Westchester County Executive George Latimer, requires co-op boards to acknowledge that they’ve received an application — or let an applicant know there is an issue with their application — within 15 days. It also requires co-op boards to make a decision on an application within 60 days and gives them a 15-day deadline to send a copy of any rejections to the Westchester Human Rights Commission, the outlet reported. [LoHud]
