Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 30 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 30-109 to read as follows:
§ 30-109 Fuel management plan. The commissioner shall develop or update, no later than December first, two thousand thirteen, a fuel management plan in consultation with other city agencies and other relevant governmental entities, to be utilized during and after coastal storms and other severe weather and natural disaster events where such events may disrupt or have disrupted the fuel supply in the city of New York. Such plan shall include but not be limited to the following features, provided that nothing herein shall be construed to interfere with the ability of agencies responding to an emergency to implement plans, modify plans, or take steps not described in any written plan, in a manner appropriate to circumstances particular to that emergency:
a. the procedures and criteria for determining when a fuel shortage exists and for rationing of fuel in the event of a fuel shortage in the city of New York;
b. the criteria for determining the amount of fuel reserves in the city of New York that should be maintained and for what priority purposes;
c. the establishment and maintenance of lines of communication between the city and the industries that provide fuel to the city of New York;
d. the prioritization of fuel access for persons involved in rescue, recovery and clean-up operations, including but not limited to emergency services and critical health, public safety and sanitation personnel;
e. a process for assessing  transportation routes to maximize the delivery of fuel within the city of New York; and
f. a mechanism to provide that, to the extent practicable, all public communications, written or otherwise, are available in the most commonly spoken languages of affected communities.
§ 2. This local law shall take effect immediately.
