A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to cleaning park playground equipment after the spraying of pesticides

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1.  Within 180 days of the effective date of the local law that added this section, the department of health and mental hygiene, in consultation with the department of parks and recreation, shall, by rule, establish the minimum distance between playground equipment and the spraying of a pesticide at which such equipment will not be exposed to such pesticides.

§ 2. Chapter 1 of title 18 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 18-148 to read as follows:

§ 18-148 Cleaning playground equipment after pesticide exposure. a. As used in this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

Park playground equipment. The term “park playground equipment” means playground equipment which is located within a playground operated by or under the jurisdiction of the department, including those for which the department has an agreement with a conservancy or other not-for-profit organization with respect to operation of any aspect of a playground. 

Pesticide. The term “pesticide” shall have the same meaning as provided in section 17-1101 of this code.

b. Within 24 hours of the spraying of any pesticide by or on behalf of a city agency, the department shall clean all park playground equipment located less than the minimum distance from such spraying, as set forth in rule by the department of health and mental hygiene, at which such equipment will not be exposed to such pesticide. 

§3. This local law takes effect immediately, except that section two of this local law shall take effect 180 days after it becomes law, and except that the commissioner of parks and the commissioner of health and mental hygiene may take such measures as are necessary for the implementation of such sections, including the promulgation of rules, prior to such effective date.
