Title: A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to creating penalties for an individual or entity's failure to obtain a street event permit
Sponsors: Margaret S. Chin, Justin L. Brannan
Council Member Sponsors: 2
Summary: This proposed law would create a penalty where an individual or entity has failed to obtain a street event permit from the Street Activity Permit Office before holding an event. Currently, retail stores can be fined for obstructing the sidewalk but there is no separate penalty for failing to obtain the appropriate street event permit before holding a promotional event.
