Summary: This bill would extend, indefinitely, the provisions of local law number 64 for the year 2015 that require the Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings to issue a monthly report analyzing the civil violations dismissed in its tribunals, including the reasons for dismissal for each violation. LL 64 originally required these monthly reports to be issued only until December 2018 and this bill would make the requirement permanent. The monthly report is to be sent to, among others, the agencies whose violations were dismissed. This bill would also make it a permanent requirement that these same agencies work with the Mayor’s Office of Operations to prepare a biennial report documenting each agency’s planned steps to minimize the issuance of violations that are ultimately dismissed.

A Local Law to amend the New York city charter and local law number 64 for the year 2015, in relation to extending, indefinitely, the requirements for monthly reports and requiring biennial recommendations relating to OATH tribunal dismissals of civil penalty violations

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subdivision 6 of section 1048 of the New York city charter, as added by local law number 64 for the year 2015, is amended to read as follows:

6. a. The office of administrative trials and hearings shall issue monthly reports relating to dismissals of civil penalty violations in tribunals within the jurisdiction of such office in the previous month. Such reports shall catalogue dismissals for each agency and shall include the reason for each dismissal. Such reports shall be sent to the speaker of the council, the public advocate, the mayor, and to each agency included in the reports.

b. The mayor’s office of operations shall work with agencies that receive reports from the office of administrative trials and hearings pursuant to this subdivision to identify issues that may be causing civil penalty violations to be dismissed. The issues identified and any corrective action undertaken or to be undertaken by agencies to minimize the occurrence of dismissals of civil penalty violations shall be included in a biennial report prepared by the office of operations. Such report shall be sent to the public advocate, the speaker of the council and the mayor on or before September 1, 2018 and on or before September 1 of every other calendar year thereafter.

§ 2. Section three of local law number 64 for the year 2015 is amended to read as follows:

§ 3. This local law takes effect 90 days after it becomes law. [and expires and is deemed repealed on December 31, 2018, except that section] Section 2 of this local law expires and is deemed repealed on December 31, 2016.

§ 3. This local law takes effect immediately.
