Action on the minutes of the Board’s meeting on March 12, 2018 was deferred.
Mr. Segel led a discussion of an inquiry regarding a potential sale of a first floor unit. After Ms. Corvi briefed the Board on the applicable zoning restrictions for commercial use, the Board determined that any conversion of the unit for a residential use in contemplation of a sale would be at the sole cost and expense of the unit owner.
Mr. Segel and Mr. Ochoa then updated the Board on the progress and status of each ongoing renovation, including the estimated completion dates, correspondence with the applicable architects and specific conditions requiring special attention or follow-up.
Mr. Gordon presented the financial report for March 2018, a copy of which it attached, and noted the Co-op’s continued strong cash position.

After a discussion, upon a motion made, seconded and unanimously carried, the Board approved the audited financial statements and authorized Mr. Gordon to sign off on any necessary changes after his further discussions with PKF. Mr. Gordon also invited the Board to direct any follow-up questions to him following the meeting.
The Board and Mr. Devall then discussed the timetable for finalizing the Co-op’s audited financial statements and having them delivered to the shareholders in advance of the annual shareholders’ meeting.
