Int 0409-2014 AMelissa Mark-Viverito Amended and Coupled on GORegulating publicly accessible collection bins.IntroductionPublically accessible collection bins for the collection of clothing (“collection bins”) that are illegally placed on public property are nuisances. They attract refuse and graffiti, and obstruct pedestrian traffic. Currently, the Department of Sanitation (“DSNY”) is authorized to remove any collection bin placed on City property 30 days after notice has been affixed to the collection bin. Recently, however, the number of collection bins on City property has greatly increased. Collection bin providers have learned they can simply move their collection bin to another location on City property before 30 days has elapsed. The bill would allow DSNY to immediately remove a collection bin placed on City property, or property maintained by the City, or on any public sidewalk or roadway. If the owner’s name and address are located on the collection bin, DSNY will provide notice to the owner that it has removed the bin and that the owner can claim such collection bin through procedures to be established by rule. The bill establishes civil penalties for collection bins placed on City property and for attaching or enclosing a bin on City property. An owner who seeks to reclaim a collection bin that has been removed by DSNY will be required to pay any penalties imposed and the costs of removal and storage. If the owner does not claim his or her collection bin within 30 days, the department can dispose of it. For bins on private property, both the owner of the bin and the owner of the property will be responsible for maintaining the bin in a clean and neat condition and for reporting the amount of material collected on a yearly basis to DSNY.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available

Finally, the department would be required to annually provide a report on the uses of force found to be excessive by the department.

Int 0542-2014 *Ydanis A. Rodriguez~SPONSORTransportationRequiring the installation of traffic calming devices adjacent to senior centers and naturally occurring retirement communities.IntroductionUnder Section 19-183 of the Administrative Code of the city of New York, the Department of Transportation (“Department”) is required to establish guidelines for the approval and placement of traffic calming devices. A traffic calming device is defined by the statute and includes, but is not limited to, tools such as speed humps, curb extensions, traffic diverters, median barriers, and raised walkways. Such devices are installed on a street and are intended to slow, reduce, or alter motor vehicle traffic to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. Currently, the Department is required to consider locations such as schools, senior centers, and nursing homes. This bill would require the Department to annually install at least one traffic calming device on no less than fifty blocks that are adjacent to senior centers or naturally occurring retirement communities (NORCs). The Commissioner of the Department, after evaluating all of these locations, may determine to stop further installation (consistent with the Commissioner’s right to decline to install a device if they determine that doing so would endanger the safety of motorists or pedestrians, or would be noncompliant with the Department’s traffic control device guidelines), but only upon informing the Speaker of the City Council of the reasons for their determination. Any senior center or NORC created after such a determination must be evaluated for placement of a traffic calming device. The Department is further required to report to the Council on July 1, 2015 and annually thereafter on the locations where traffic calming devices have been installed.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

Int 0544-2014 *Mark Treyger~SPONSORTransportationProhibiting the use of wireless communications devices while operating a bicycle.IntroductionUnder the bill, using an electronic communications device while operating a bicycle would be prohibited. The ban on using electronic communications devices while biking would not apply to: 1) government officers or employees—including law enforcement—acting in an official capacity; 2) those using a device in a hands-free mode; 3) those using a device to report an emergency; 4) those using a device while stationary. Violations of the prohibition would be a traffic infraction punishable by a civil penalty of no more than $50. However, those found in violation for the first time would not be liable for the civil penalty so long as no damage or injury was caused in connection with the violation. An individual found to be in violation more than once within an eighteen-month period would be liable for an additional civil penalty of $50 to $200.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
Int 0545-2014 *Mark Treyger~SPONSORTransportationBicycle SafetyIntroductionNew York State approves defensive driving course that educate motorists on safe driving habits and applicable laws, as well as allow individuals to remove points from their driving record and lower insurance premiums. However, these courses only apply to those operating a motor vehicle. Under the bill, the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) would be required to establish a bicycle safety course that covers safe bicycling and adherence to State and local laws that apply to bicycles. The bill would allow those facing a civil penalty for a first violation of the Code related to operating a bicycle to complete the course in order to have the penalty waived. In addition, DOT would be required to collaborate with the New York City Police Department on an outreach and public education campaign regarding bicycle safety no later than June 1, 2015.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

This bill would require that any lamp installed as part of the lighting of streets, highways, parks, or any other public place use LED technology, or the best available technology for achieving energy-efficiency, if it is more efficient than LED technology. The bill would also require the Department of Transportation to report to the Council and post on its website, beginning on January 1, 2015, and every six months thereafter: 1) the number of street light-fixtures installed with lamps using LED or other best-available technology, and 2) the number of street light-fixtures that remain to be installed with such technology, with the data disaggregated by borough and Council district.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
