Int. No. 979

 

By Council Members Katz, Comrie, Felder, Sears, Stewart and White Jr. (by request of the Mayor)

 

A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to authorizing the department of transportation to extend the expiration date of the operating authority of certain unsubsidized private bus services.

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

                     Section 1.  Subdivision b of section 378 of the New York city charter, as amended by local law 30 for the year 2008, is amended to read as follows:

b. Not later than the first day of March, nineteen hundred ninety, the mayor shall designate a single agency as the responsible agency for each type of franchise currently granted by the city.  If such an agency intends to continue granting any such type of franchise, the agency shall submit to the council a proposed authorizing resolution for such type of franchise at least two years, or such shorter period as may be approved by the franchise and concession review committee, prior to the earliest expiration date of any existing franchise of that type; provided,  however, that the department of transportation, with the approval of the franchise and concession review committee, may extend the expiration date of the operating authority of any private bus company that does not receive a subsidy from the city to a date not later than the thirtieth day of  June, two thousand and [nine] ten.  Notwithstanding the provisions of section three hundred seventy-one, the public notice and hearing requirements of the franchise and concession review committee with respect to an approval of an extension of the operating authority of a private bus company shall be fully satisfied by a public hearing held after notice of such hearing shall have  been published at least one day prior thereto in the City Record.

§2. This local law shall take effect immediately and shall be deemed to have been in full force and effect on and after June 30, 2009.
