A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to an annual report on park maintenance, capital expenditures and parks enforcement patrol officers

 

 Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 18 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 18-144 to read as follows:

                     § 18-144 Annual report on park maintenance. a. Definitions. As used in this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

Fixed-post maintenance staff. The term “fixed-post maintenance staff” means department maintenance staff who are assigned to perform maintenance work at a specific property under the jurisdiction of the commissioner.

Functional acreage. The term “functional acreage” means any area of property under the jurisdiction of the commissioner that is routinely maintained by department staff.

Mobile maintenance crew staff. The term “mobile maintenance crew staff” means department maintenance staff who are not assigned to work out of a specific property under the jurisdiction of the commissioner, but travel to different properties to perform maintenance work.

b. On or before December 1 of each year, the commissioner shall, for the immediately preceding fiscal year, submit a report to the mayor and the council on the maintenance work performed by department staff at each property under the jurisdiction of the commissioner. Such report shall include information relevant to maintenance expenditures in parks properties, including:

1. The name, type and unique internal identification number of each property;

2. The size of each property, in total acreage and functional acreage;

3. Whether the fixed-post maintenance staff are assigned to the property;

4. Per quarter, the weekly mean of work-hours for staff allocated to perform maintenance activities at each property, for both fixed-post maintenance staff and mobile maintenance crew staff;

5. Per quarter, the dollar value of the weekly mean of work hours for staff allocated to perform maintenance activities at each property, for both fixed-post maintenance staff and mobile maintenance crew staff;

6. Per quarter, the weekly mean dollar value of estimated regional, district or borough-wide maintenance services provided at each property; and

7. Per quarter, the total weekly mean dollar value of maintenance services provided at each property; provided however, should the commissioner develop another method of collecting the same or similar data  pursuant to paragraphs  4 through 7 of this section, such report may be amended upon 30 days’ notice to the mayor and the council to include such data.

c. The report pursuant to this section shall include, per quarter, the total dollar amount for any specialized maintenance services performed, if any, at each property, including but not limited to plumbing and electrical services.

d. The report pursuant to this section shall, as of at least one date per quarter, provide the current total headcount by borough of park enforcement patrol officers assigned to work on properties under the jurisdiction of the commissioner, as determined by the existing headcount on that date.

e. The commissioner shall submit such annual report to the mayor and the council pursuant to the following timetable:

1. On or before December 1, 2016, information on non-specialized maintenance work performed at the one hundred largest properties as determined by functional acreage and the headcount of park enforcement patrol officers; and

2. On or before December 1, 2017, and each year thereafter, information on non-specialized maintenance work performed at all properties under the jurisdiction of the commissioner, the headcount of park enforcement patrol officers and the data collected pursuant to subdivision c of this section.

f. Each annual report shall be posted on the department’s website and the data collected in each report shall be posted on the city’s website in a non-proprietary format that permits automated processing.

§ 2. Chapter 1 of title 18 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 18-145 to read as follows:

§ 18-145 Reporting on capital project expenditures in parks. The department shall post on the city’s website, in a non-proprietary format that permits automated processing, the status of each capital project, as defined in section 5-101 of the administrative code of the city of New York, on property under the jurisdiction of the commissioner. Such information shall include (i) the actual or estimated starting date and actual or estimated completion date of the current phase of such project; (ii) the total amount of funds allocated to such project or, when applicable, a range of the funds available; (iii) the identification of each separate source of funding allocated to such project; (iv) a description of such project; (v) the location of such project; and (vi) a quarterly update.

§ 3. This local law takes effect immediately after it becomes law.
