Whereas, On June 17, 2013, pursuant to Section 1514 of the Charter of the City of New York, the Commissioner of the Department of Finance delivered to the Council the certified assessment rolls for all real property assessable for taxation in the City in each borough thereof for the fiscal year beginning on July 1, 2013and ending on June 30, 2014 ("Fiscal 2014"), a certified copy of which is in the Office of the Clerk of the City pursuant to Section 516, Real Property Tax Law (the "Fiscal 2014 Assessment Rolls");  and
 
Whereas, Section 1803-a (5), Real Property Tax Law, requires the Council subsequent to the filing of the final Fiscal 2014 Assessment Rolls, to adjust current base proportions computed pursuant to the Current Base Proportion Resolution to reflect additions to and removals from the Fiscal 2014 Assessment Rolls as described therein (each such current base proportion so adjusted to be known as an "Adjusted Base Proportion"); and
 
Whereas, Within five (5) days upon determination of the Adjusted Base Proportions, Section 1803-a (6), Real Property Tax Law, requires the Council to certify, to the State Board of Real Property Tax Services ("SBRPTS"), the Adjusted Base Proportion for each class of real property applicable to the City, the assessed value of all property in each class of real property, the net change in assessed value for each class on the Fiscal 2014 Assessment Rolls resulting from the additions to or removals from the Fiscal 2014 Assessment Rolls as described above, and the net change in assessed value for each class on the Fiscal 2014 Assessment Rolls resulting from changes other than those referred to above; and
 
Whereas, On June 26, 2013, the Council adopted a resolution in which the Council computed and certified the current base proportion, the current percentage and the base percentage of each class of real property in the City for Fiscal 2014 pursuant to Section 1803-a (1), Real Property Tax Law (the "Current Base Proportion Resolution"); and
 
Whereas, After the June 26th adoption of the Current Base Proportion Resolution, Section 1803-a, Real Property Tax Law, was amended by Chapter 134 of the Laws of New York 2013 to lower the percent of increase in the current base proportion as compared with the previous year's adjusted base proportion to 1 percent; and
 
Whereas, Pursuant to the amendment to Section 1803-a, Real Property Tax Law, on November 14, 2013, the Council adopted a resolution computing and certifying the base percentage, current percentage and current base proportion of each class of real property for Fiscal 2014 to the SBRPTS pursuant to Section 1803-a, Real Property Tax Law;
 
 
NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved by The Council of The City of New York as follows:
