§ 2. Table I of paragraph 5 of subdivision b of section 24-257 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 113 for the year 2005, is amended by adding a new row following the row that begins 24-216(d), and the row beginning 24-218 is amended, to read as follows:
