Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

            Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 16 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 16-111.2 to read as follows:

§ 16-111.2 Posting information online about street cleanings. a. Definitions. For purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

Global positioning system. The term “global positioning system” or “GPS” means a global positioning system, or a comparable location tracking technology, that uses navigational satellites to determine a location in real time and is capable of collecting, storing and transmitting geographical data.

Street sweeper. The term “street sweeper” means a vehicle under the jurisdiction of the department that is equipped with a mechanical broom to clean streets.

b. GPS equipment required. The commissioner shall require that all street sweepers are equipped with GPS technology and that such technology is functioning during street cleaning operations.

c. Publication of tracking information required. Not later than 150 days after the effective date of this local law, the commissioner, in consultation with the department of information technology and telecommunications, shall publish and maintain a unique page on the department’s website that allows the public to track each street sweeper on a street cleaning route and confirm the completion of a street cleaning, using data from GPS devices installed on such sweepers.

d. Report. Not later than one year after the effective date of this section, and biannually thereafter, the commissioner shall submit a report on street cleanings, using data from GPS devices installed on street sweepers, to the mayor and the speaker of the council and post such report on the department’s website. Such quarterly report shall include, but not be limited to, a table in which each separate row references one sanitation district and shall include, but not be limited to, the following information about each such district for the previous quarter, set forth in separate columns:
