§ 19-163.2 Suspension of parking regulations for filming.  a. The issuance of a permit by the mayor's office of film theatre and broadcasting that authorizes filming and/or related activity shall result in suspension of alternate side of the street parking rules for the duration of such permit or seven days whichever is shorter on all blocks adjacent to and any portion of which is within two hundred feet of the location of the filming and/or related activity, and where such filming and/or related activity results in a loss of alternate side parking spaces or spaces where there are no restrictions.
b. In accordance with subdivision c of section 19-175.2 of this subchapter, the party to whom a permit is issued by such mayor's office shall immediately post notice of the parking rule suspensions in the blocks where parking rules are suspended in accordance with subdivision a of this section.  The specific content of such notice shall be approved by the commissioner at the commissioner's discretion.
c. The party to whom a permit is issued by the mayor's office shall either arrange for any such blocks where alternate side parking rules are suspended as a result of such filming to be cleaned to the satisfaction of the department of sanitation following such filming, or shall provide funds to the department of sanitation to cover the cost of such cleaning.  The department of sanitation shall establish by rule a schedule to determine the amount of funds to be provided in such circumstances, based upon criteria including but not limited to the size of the area to be cleaned and the cost of cleaning.
