A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to canceling tickets upon showing of a valid muni-meter receipt.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
      
Section 1. Chapter 2 of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-215 to read as follows:
            §19-215 Cancellation of certain tickets. a. For the purposes of this section, the following terms shall be defined as follows:
      1. "Agent" shall mean any person employed by the city of New York authorized to issue a notice of violation for parking violations.
      2. "Muni-meter receipt" shall mean the receipt showing the amount of parking time purchased that is dispensed by an electronic parking meter.
b. Any agent who issues a notice of violation by electronic means for failure to pay the metered fare shall cancel such notice of violation when, not later than five minutes after the issuance of such notice, such agent is shown a valid muni-meter receipt with an official start time stamp and such start time is no later than five minutes after the time of the issuance of such notice.  The electronic copy of such canceled notice shall be marked "valid muni-meter receipt shown; ticket canceled" and shall include the number of such muni-meter receipt shown.  The electronic system used by the agent to issue such notice shall be programmed to prohibit such notice from being canceled later than five minutes after the issuance of such notice.  
c. The department shall keep a record of all notices of violation canceled pursuant to subdivision b of this section.  On or before March 31, 2013 and annually thereafter on or before March 31, the commissioner shall send a report to the city council detailing the number of notices of violation canceled pursuant to subdivision b of this section in the prior calendar year.
§2. This local law shall take effect one hundred eighty days following enactment, except that during such one hundred eighty day period, the department shall provide appropriate training to all agents who will enforce such law.
