What Coop City shareholders need to know about noise complaints
Coop City shareholders experiencing undue and/or incessant noise coming from a neighboring Co-op City apartment or home, are advised to call Co-op City Public Safety Department
After the call is received and the location is noted, public safety officers will be dispatched to the home of the shareholder calling in the complaint. When they arrive at the home of that shareholder, they must be allowed to enter the home of the shareholder to confirm that there is noise from a neighboring home that is loud enough to be considered a violation of Coop City by laws designed to ensure each home's quality of life.
After the investigating officers confirm the noise and determine it to be loud enough to be considered a violation, then a community complaint will be issued against the shareholder of record of the offending home. The fine for the first offense is $25 and doubles for each fine thereafter.
If the investigating officers determine that the noise is non-existent or not loud enough to be considered a substantial disturbance of the peace in that home, the shareholder will still have the option of signing an affadavit which will officially file a noise complaint in his or her name against the shareholder of record in the alleged offending home and that alleged offending shareholder will then have right to appeal.
