In all the reports provided to members NO WHERE IS THERE MENTION OF A NEED TO REMOVE ( at a cost estimate of ONE MILLION DOLLARS ) THE UPPER DECK PLANTER BOXES.
IT IS A WISH BY THE BOARD NOT A STRUCTUAL NEED!

a) removal of concrete upper deck square planter boxes is not mentioned is in the estimate?
b) if it is in the estimate why is it not specified? and hidden?
c) to remove those planter boxes I believe will require a few extra months of work, jackhammer, excess dirt, and my cost estimate of one million dollars (cost to each unit owner $5,000) . WHY
