Int. No. 1257-A

 

By Council Members Cornegy, Lancman, Kallos, Vallone, Rosenthal, Chin, Perkins, Rivera, Holden and Ayala

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to inspections of construction sites for which the department of buildings has issued a permit

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Article 105 of chapter 1 of title 28 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 28-105.12.11 to read as follows:

§ 28-105.12.11 Inspections. Upon issuance of a permit and at any time during such permit period, the commissioner or his or her authorized representatives, in the discharge of their duties, shall have the right to enter, in accordance with applicable law, upon any buildings, enclosures, premises, or any part thereof, or attached thereto for the purposes of an inspection of work pursuant to such permit to ensure that such work is not occurring in an unsafe or dangerous manner, and that such work is being performed in compliance with applicable code provisions. If the commissioner or his or her authorized representative is unable to gain access to such property expeditiously for the purposes of an inspection of work pursuant to such permit and there is a reason to believe that the work is being done in violation of the law, the commissioner shall issue a stop work order. Such stop work order may be rescinded in accordance with section 28-207.2.3. 

 

 § 2. This local law shall take effect 120 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of the department of buildings shall take such measures as are necessary for its implementation, including the promulgation of rules, prior to such effective date.
