A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring identification of contractors on construction projects where discretionary approval or financial assistance has been provided by the city.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1.  Article 101 of chapter one of title 28 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 28-101.6 to read as follows:
§28-101.6 Identities of certain construction contractors. a. For purposes of this section, the following terms shall have the following meanings:
(1)"discretionary approval" shall mean where an entity has received approval pursuant to
section 197-c of the charter, approval by the board of standards and appeals and/or where the entity has received financial assistance or incentive for such project by any city agency;  
(2) "construction" and "contractor" shall have the same meaning as set forth in section
27-232 of this code;
(3) "financial assistance" shall mean cash payments or grants, bond financing, tax
abatements or exemptions (including, but not limited to, abatements or exemptions from real property, mortgage recording, sales and uses taxes, or the difference between any payments in lieu of taxes and the amount of real property or other taxes that would have been due if the property were not exempted from the payment of such taxes), tax increment financing, filing fee waivers, energy cost reductions, environmental remediation costs, write-downs in the market value of buildings, land or leases, or the cost of capital improvements related to real property that, under ordinary circumstances, the city would not pay for, and includes both discretionary and as of right assistance.
b. Any owner of property which receives discretionary approval or financial assistance
shall, not less than ten days prior to the commencement of any construction that results from such discretionary approval or financial assistance, provide to the community board or boards where such construction is to take place the identity, address, phone number and electronic mail contact information of any contractor retained to perform such construction.  If during the course of such construction, any additional contractors are retained, the identity of all such contractors along with the above contact information shall be provided to the relevant community board or boards prior to such additional contractor commencing work.
§2. This local law shall take effect ninety days after its enactment, provided, however, that the commissioner of buildings shall take such actions as are necessary for its implementation, including the promulgation of rules, prior to such effective date.
