Res. No. 47
 
 
Resolution calling upon the Mayor of the City of New York to open all municipal garages and parking lots when a snow emergency has been declared, for a fee not to exceed twenty dollars per day.
 
 
By Council Members Cabrera, King, Palma and Rose
 
Whereas, New York City traffic rules authorize the Commissioner of Transportation to declare a snow emergency; and
Whereas, When the Commissioner declares a state of snow emergency, special traffic regulations take effect which prohibit standing or parking a vehicle on the City's network of two hundred and fifty snow emergency streets and routes; and
Whereas, When a snow emergency is declared, New York City police officers are instructed to issue summonses for abandoned or illegally parked vehicles on snow emergency streets; and
Whereas, The New York City Department of Transportation operates forty-two municipal parking garages and lots which are located in all five boroughs; and
Whereas, Municipal parking garages and lots accept payment via credit card, parking card, and coins; and
Whereas, Each municipal parking garage and lot has different hours of operation and different parking rates; and
Whereas, There is a lack of available parking spots during a snow emergency and municipal parking garages and lots, if open and affordable, could help create additional parking spaces; now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the Council of the City of New York calls upon the Mayor of the City of New York to open all municipal garages and parking lots when a snow emergency has been declared, for a fee not to exceed twenty dollars per day.
