On Sunday, June 26, the ST-PCV Tenants Association sent out an email to neighbors to warn that dues for membership would be going up to $50 a year, but also to mention that additional MCIs were expected.
When explaining the dues raise, the TA said it was due to legal fees mostly for legal challenges like those aimed at fighting MCIs (major capital improvements).
“And we know more MCIs are on the way,” came the warning.
Asked about this later, Susan Steinberg, president of the TA said while this wasn’t in reference to anything new she’d heard about, CWCapital had applied for “a number of them covering many buildings, and only some were issued.”
This was for façade related work. So far, the TA has heard from tenants in 19 buildings in Stuy Town and Peter Cooper who received notice of a pending MCI for external restoration work.
MCIs, even for the same project, are filed separately for each building.
The cost varies from about $1.15 to $3 per room per month.
