Section 1.  Paragraph 2 of subdivision f of section 20-708.1 of the administrative code of the city of New York is hereby amended to read as follows:

                     2.  In addition to the enforcement powers prescribed in sections 20-703 and 20-704 of this code, the commissioner may, upon due notice, hold hearings to determine whether violations of the provisions of this section have occurred. Such notice shall contain a concise statement of the facts constituting the alleged violation and shall set forth the date, time and place of the hearing. Upon a finding of a violation of the provisions of this section, the commissioner shall be authorized to impose a civil penalty as follows:

(a) upon a first inspection, up to twenty-five dollars for the first twenty violations and up to fifty dollars for the twenty-first and successive violations, total violations not to exceed [one] two thousand dollars.

(b) upon a second or subsequent inspection within a two week period, up to fifty dollars for the first twenty continued violations, and up to one hundred dollars for the twenty-first and  successive continued  violations, total violations issued not to exceed [four] eight thousand dollars.

 

§ 2. This local law shall take effect sixty days after it shall have been enacted into law; provided that the commissioner may take any actions necessary prior to such effective date for the implementation of this local law including, but not limited to, the adoption of any necessary rules.
