A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring that certain applicants for film and television production permits pay a fee of $800 and providing that such permits expire 30 days after the date of issue

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 22-205 of chapter 2 of title 22 of the administrative code of the city of New York is renumbered and amended to read as follows:

§ [22-205] 22-290 Permits for movie-making, telecasting and photography in public places; violations; penalties. a. The [executive director of the office for economic development] commissioner of small business services or any other person or entity designated by the mayor to issue film and television production permits pursuant to paragraph r of subdivision 1 of section 1301 of the charter shall not issue to any applicant any permit for any activity subject to the provisions of [subdivision thirteen of section thirteen hundred of the charter] that section, unless and until:

(1) all other permits, approvals and sanctions required by any other provision of law for the conduct of such activities by the applicant have been obtained by the [executive director] commissioner or mayor’s designee, in the name and in behalf of the applicant, from the agency or agencies having jurisdiction; [and]

(2) all fees required to be paid by, or imposed pursuant to, any provision of law for the issuance of such other permits, approvals and sanctions have been paid by the applicant[.]; and

(3) for any project for which a permit is required under the rules promulgated by the commissioner or mayor’s designee, the applicant has paid an application fee of $800 to cover activity for a period of 30 days. The commissioner or mayor’s designee shall waive such fee if the applicant provides satisfactory evidence that the project is being produced in the course of pursuing an academic degree or diploma.

b. It shall be unlawful for any person to conduct, without a permit from [such executive director] the commissioner or mayor’s designee, any activity with respect to which [such executive director] the commissioner or mayor’s designee is authorized to issue a permit under the provisions of the charter referred to in subdivision a of this section. Any violation of the provisions of this subdivision b shall be punishable by a fine of not more than [five hundred dollars] $500 or by imprisonment for not more than [ninety] 90 days, or both.

c. A permit described in paragraph (3) of subdivision a expires 30 days after the date of issue. The commissioner or mayor’s designee may renew any such permit for an additional period of 30 days if the applicant pays an additional application fee of $800 and satisfies all other applicable conditions set forth in this section and applicable law.

§ 2. This local law takes effect 30 days after it becomes a law.
