Int. No. 285

 

By Council Members Richards, Brannan, Salamanca, Holden, Miller and Yeger

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the department of transportation to clean and maintain all medians at least once a year and to create a web-based tracking system

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subchapter 1 of Chapter 1 of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-160 to read as follows:

                     § 19-160 Median maintenance. a. For the purposes of this section, the term “median” means the raised area that separates lanes of traffic on a roadway.

                     b. The department shall clean and maintain all medians at least once per year. This provision shall not be construed to conflict with or lessen the department of parks and recreation’s responsibility for maintaining trees and vegetation on medians, pursuant to section 18-104, or with the department of sanitation’s responsibility for maintaining such medians during snowfall or the formation of ice, pursuant to section 16-124.

                     c. The department shall create a web-based system to track its progress in the annual cleaning and maintaining of medians.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law.
