By Council Members Salamanca, Kallos, Rosenthal, Constantinides, Eugene, Ayala and Rivera

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the repair of damaged water tanks

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 17-194 of the administrative code of the city of New York, is amended by adding a new subdivision g, and by amending subdivision j, as amended by a local law amending the administrative code of the city of New York, relating to qualifications for persons conducting inspections and maintenance on drinking water tanks, as proposed in introduction number 1157-A for the year 2018, to read as follows:

g. Any owner of a building shall have a duty to maintain a water tank and such water tank’s supporting structures in a safe condition. If, as a result of an annual inspection required by subdivision b of this section, it is determined that a water tank or its supporting structure is structurally unsafe or dangerous, the water tank inspector or owner shall take such actions as are required by section 28-301.1 and report such condition to the department of buildings in writing.                      j. Any owner of a building who violates subdivisions b or c of this section or any of the rules promulgated thereunder shall be liable for a civil penalty not less than $200 and not to exceed $2000 for each violation. Any owner of a building who violates subdivision d of this section or any of the rules promulgated thereunder shall be liable for a civil penalty not to exceed $250 for each violation. Any owner of a building who violates subdivision g of this section shall be liable for a civil penalty not less than $200 and not to exceed $2000 for each violation.

§ 2. This local law takes effect on the same date as a local law amending the administrative code of the city of New York, relating to qualifications for persons conducting inspections and maintenance on drinking water tanks, as proposed in introduction number 1157-A for the year 2018, takes effect, except that the commissioner may take such actions as are necessary for the implementation of this local law, including the promulgation of rules, before such date.
