Title: A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to a sunset provision in legislation on filing semiannual reports on catch basin cleanups and maintenance

Council Member Sponsors: 5
Summary: The recently expired local law required the commissioner of environmental protection to submit semi-annual reports of the citywide catch basin inspection, cleanup, maintenance and repair, by community board and to also ensure that catch basins are inspected, at a minimum of, once every year and are repaired or unclogged at least five days after inspection or the receipt of a complaint about a clogged or malfunctioning catch basin. The new local law would extended the expired law to still require that catch basins are inspected, at least, once every year and are repaired or unclogged at least five days after inspection or the receipt of a complaint about a clogged or malfunctioning catch basin. The new law would require quarterly reports, remove the sunset provision and take effect immediately.

Section 1. Section 1 of local law number 48 of the year 2015 is amended to read as follows:

Section 1. Section 24-503 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new subdivision f to read as follows:

f. The commissioner of environmental protection shall submit [semiannual] quarterly reports to the mayor and the speaker of the council regarding the inspection, cleanup, maintenance and repair of catch basins, disaggregated by community district. [The first semiannual report shall cover the period from July 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016.]  Such reports shall include the number of catch basins inspected, the number of clogged or malfunctioning catch basins identified, the number of catch basins unclogged or repaired, whether the inspection was in response to a complaint and the response time for the resolution of any complaint. The commissioner of environmental protection shall also ensure that such catch basins are inspected, at a minimum, once every year, and are unclogged or repaired within [nine] five days after an inspection or the receipt of a complaint about a clogged or malfunctioning catch basin. Catch basins not unclogged or repaired within [nine] five days after an inspection or the receipt of a complaint shall be identified in the [semiannual] quarterly report.

§2. This local law takes effect July 1, 2016, [and expires and is deemed repealed June 30, 2019,] except that the commissioner of environmental protection shall submit a report in accordance with subdivision f of section 24-503 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by section one of this local law, for the period from January 1, [2019], through June 30, [2019] for each year from 2020 forward.
