Board members under fire at Co-op City

Co-op City

Investigation into a member of Co-op City’s board of directors getting pushed to the top of the waiting list for a sought-after townhouse may not be the only scandal plaguing the 25-building development in Baychester, the Daily News reported. Now, applications submitted by two other board members for a pair of two-story townhouses may need to be re-examined to see if their stated incomes qualify them for the townhouses at the complex, a 320-acre housing cooperative managed by Riverbay. One board faction has brought in Riverbay’s lawyer to investigate. There are also rumors that there is a movement among that board faction calling for an outside independent investigation, according to the Daily News. The next step may be to bring in the state Division of Housing and Community Renewal, which oversees the Mitchell-Lama complex.
