Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
Section 1. Section 24-503 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new subdivision f to read as follows:
f. The commissioner of environmental protection shall submit semiannual reports to the mayor and the speaker of the council regarding the inspection, maintenance and repair of catch basins within the jurisdiction of the commissioner, disaggregated by community district. The first semiannual report shall cover the period from July 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016. Such reports shall include the number of catch basins inspected, the number of clogged or malfunctioning catch basins identified, the number of catch basins unclogged or repaired, whether the inspection was in response to a complaint, and the response time for resolution of any complaint. The commissioner of environmental protection shall also ensure that such catch basins are inspected, at a minimum, once every year, and are unclogged or repaired within nine days after an inspection or the receipt of a complaint about a clogged or malfunctioning catch basin. Catch basins not unclogged or repaired within nine days after an inspection or the receipt of a complaint shall be identified in the semiannual report.
§ 2. This local law takes effect July 1, 2016, and expires and is deemed repealed June 30, 2019, except that the commissioner of environmental protection shall submit a report in accordance with subdivision f of section 24-503 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by section one of this local law, for the period from January 1, 2019, through June 30, 2019.
