Int 0361-2014 ACorey D. Johnson Amended and Coupled on GORequiring the department of homeless services to grant a presumption of eligibility for applicants to the shelter system who are exiting human resources administration domestic violence shelters.IntroductionThe Human Resources Administration (HRA) operates the system of shelter for victims of domestic violence. Pursuant to New York State law, the maximum stay at these shelters is 180 days. Domestic violence survivors who still require temporary shelter after 180 days must enter the Department of Homeless Services (DHS) shelter system. Currently, these families must go to DHS’ intake facility for an eligibility assessment prior to being admitted to a DHS shelter. This bill would require DHS to automatically deem domestic violence survivors eligible for shelter if applicants are no longer eligible for HRA domestic violence shelter because they have reached the maximum length of stay, HRA has provided DHS notice of the upcoming exit, which the bill would require HRA to provide, and applicants report to DHS on the day they exit the HRA shelter.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available

Int 0356-2014 AJumaane D. Williams Amended and Coupled on GOImproving compliance with the city's pro-voter law.IntroductionThis bill would require the mayoral agencies covered by the city’s agency-based voter registration law, which requires nineteen agencies to distribute voter registration forms to individuals who are applying for, renewing, or submitting a change of address with respect to, services, to report twice a year on their implementation of the law. A recent report by a coalition of good government groups found that compliance with the registration law has been lacking. The semi-annual reporting would include data on the number of registration forms distributed and mailed to the Board of Elections. It would go to the Mayor’s Office of Operations, which would consolidate the reports into a single report that it would submit to the Speaker.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available

Int 0216-2014 BMark Levine Amended and Coupled on GOIncreasing the number of accessible pedestrian signals.IntroductionAn accessible pedestrian signal (“APS”) is a device that communicates information about pedestrian timing in nonvisual format such as audible tones, verbal messages, and vibrating surfaces. APS generally provide information to pedestrians about the existence and location of the pushbutton, the beginning of the “WALK” interval, the direction of the crosswalk, and location of the destination curb. In 2012, the Council enacted a local law requiring the New York City Department of Transportation (“DOT”) to establish an APS program and annually install accessible pedestrian signals at each corner of 25 identified intersections. The bill would increase the minimum number of intersections at which DOT must install an APS to 75.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available

Int 0563-2014 *Eric A. Ulrich~SPONSORTransportationRepealing the call up provision following the granting of base station licenses.IntroductionThe Administrative Code provides that any determination by the TLC to approve an application for a license to operate a new base station or to renew a license to operate a base station must be subject to review by the Council. However, in 1999, a New York Supreme Court ruled that such a review process- known as a “call up” - impermissibly curtails the authority of the Mayor. The bill would repeal this section of the Code as it has effectively been null and void since the aforementioned decision.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

Int 0569-2014 *Jumaane D. Williams~SPONSORGeneral WelfareCreation of a taskforce to study improving safety in homeless shelters.IntroductionRecently, there have been a number of violent incidents in homeless shelters in the city of New York. For example, police have responded to over 1,800 calls for help from the Tillary Street Women’s Shelter in Brooklyn since the shelter opened in 2003. The reasons for these calls included reports of fighting, robberies, and medical emergencies. This bill would create a task force to study possible measures that can be taken to improve the safety in homeless shelters throughout the city of New York. The task force would include the Commissioner of the Department of Homeless Services, who would serve as the chairperson, and appointees of the Mayor and the Speaker with background in homeless services and law enforcement, and one appointed member would be a shelter resident. Within one year of the formation of the task force, the task force will issue a report of its findings to the Mayor and the Speaker of the City Council.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
