After what management said was a couple of complaints about bed bugs, our co-op board sent notice in November that a K-9 inspection of apartments was going to be provided to all tenants.
A sign-up sheet for those wishing to NOT participate in inspection was left in lobby. About 20-30% of apartments were not inspected.
