A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to cellular telephone service equipment and the inspection of the exterior walls of buildings greater than six stories in height.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
 
Section 1.  Article 302 of chapter three of title 28 of the administrative code of the city of New York as added by local law number 33 for the year 2007, is amended by adding a new section 28-302.7 to read as follows:
§28-302.7 Exterior walls and appurtenances thereof, cellular telephone service apparatus.
(a) Where a critical examination of an applicable building's exterior walls and appurtenances thereof cannot be conducted in whole or in part in accordance with section 28-302.2 due to the presence of any apparatus related to the provision of cellular telephone service, the owner of such property shall immediately contact the department in writing describing the nature of the circumstances for such inability and shall also indicate the building address, the cellular telephone service carrier or carriers whose equipment it is, and why such examination cannot be timely completed.
(b)  The owner of the property to which subdivision a applies shall immediately coordinate with the cellular telephone service carrier or carriers for the critical examination of such exterior walls and appurtenances thereof, which carrier or carriers shall allow the owner, or his or her representative, to conduct such examination promptly and such carrier or carriers shall, if necessary, shut-off such apparatus for such period of time as is necessary to permit a complete critical examination as is required by section 28-302.2 of this article.  Upon the completion of such critical examination, the apparatus related to the operation of cellular telephone service may resume unless such critical examination reveals that such exterior wall and appurtenances thereof are in need of immediate repair. The report of such critical examination shall be filed in accordance with section 28-302.4 of this article and any necessary repair of exterior walls or unsafe conditions made in accordance with section 28-302.5 of this article.
§2. This local law shall take effect immediately.
