Summary: This bill would require the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings to issue a monthly report analyzing the civil violations dismissed in its tribunals. The report would be required to include the applicable agency and reason for dismissal for each violation. This report would be sent to, among others, the agencies whose violations were dismissed. This bill would also require these same agencies to work with the Mayor’s Office of Operations to prepare a one-time report documenting each agency’s planned steps to minimize the issuance of violations that are ultimately dismissed.

Such reports shall catalogue dismissals for each agency and shall include the reason for each dismissal. Such reports shall be sent to the speaker of the council, the public advocate, the mayor, and to each agency included in the reports.
§ 2. The mayor's office of operations shall work with agencies that receive reports from the office of administrative trials and hearings pursuant to section 1 of this local law to identify issues that may be causing civil penalty violations to be dismissed. The issues identified and any corrective action undertaken or to be undertaken by agencies to minimize the occurrence of dismissals of civil penalty violations shall be included in a report prepared by the office of operations. Such report shall be sent to the public advocate, the speaker of the council and the mayor on or before September 1, 2016.
