a. For purposes of this subdivision, the term "snow event" shall mean any snowfall equal to or in excess of six inches within a period of twenty-four hours in any of the five boroughs based on the department of sanitation's measurements.
b. No later than November fifteenth, two thousand eleven, and on or before every November fifteenth thereafter, the commissioner shall submit to the council and make available to the public on the city's website a report describing the city's preparation for and response to all snow events during the preceding twelve-month period.
