Int. No. 887

 

By Council Members Cabrera, Barron, Eugene, Gentile, Koo, Mealy, Mendez and Rose

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the suspension of parking meter regulations on days that New York City public schools are closed because of inclement weather

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-167.4 to read as follows:

§ 19-167.4 Suspending the activation of parking meters during inclement weather. No person parking a vehicle at a parking meter or a muni-meter is required to activate such meter on any day that the mayor has declared the city’s public schools closed because of inclement weather. Where a notice of violation is issued to an owner or operator of a vehicle for the failure to activate a parking meter or a muni-meter, it is an affirmative defense to such violation that the city’s public schools were declared to be closed because of inclement weather. For the purposes of this section, the term “muni-meter” means an electronic parking meter that dispenses timed receipts that must be displayed in a conspicuous place on a vehicle's dashboard.

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately.
