Int 0687-2015 *Karen Koslowitz Placement of newsracks near taxi stands.IntroductionThe Administrative Code of the City of New York (the “Code”) defines a newsrack as “any self-service or coin-operated box, container or other dispenser installed, used or maintained for the display, sale or distribution of newspapers or other written matter to the general public.” Currently, the Code regulates where newsracks may be placed, installed, or maintained. Thus, the Code places restrictions in several locations in which the placement of newsracks would present safety concerns to persons and property. The proposed bill would prohibit the placement, installation, or maintenance of newsracks within three feet ahead or 25 feet to the rear of any designated taxi stand. Furthermore, it provides that the law would take effect 90 days after enactment into law, but authorizes the Commissioner of the Department of Transportation to take actions necessary to implement the law prior to its effective date.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
