Int 0499-2018 AKaren Koslowitz Amended and Coupled on General OrdersAllowing corporations, partnerships and other business entities to obtain newsstand licenses, and to repeal section 20-241 of the administrative code.IntroductionThis bill would amend existing law to allow current and new licensees to hold a newsstand license as a corporate entity, as long as each shareholder, partner, member or principal does not have another source of income exceeding what is earned by operating the newsstand. Existing law only allows newsstand operators to hold their license in their personal capacity. The bill also contains deeming provisions that would help the Department of Consumer and Worker Protection (DCWP) to enforce a limit on two newsstand locations per licensee. This bill would also prohibit any licensee from renting or attempting to rent out their newsstand; doing so would be a basis for license revocation. Finally, the bill also requires DCWP to mail current newsstand licensees, before their next license renewal, a letter explaining important legal requirements that may be applicable if holding a newsstand license as a corporate entity. Additionally, Section 20-241 would be repealed and subsequent sections in the subchapter renumbered, to consolidate the requirements and protections in the subchapter.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available

Int 2259-2021 ARobert E. Cornegy, Jr. Amended and Coupled on General OrdersAn extension of the deadlines for inspection and correction of building gas piping systems in certain community districts.IntroductionPursuant to Local Law 152 of 2016 and Department of Buildings (DOB) rules, between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021, building gas piping systems must be inspected in community districts (CD) 2, 5, 7, 13, and 18 in all boroughs. DOB rules also require submission of a certification that all conditions identified in the inspection report have been corrected no later than 120 days or if more time is needed no later than 180 days following the inspection date. This bill would extend the December 31, 2021 inspection deadline for buildings in CD 2, 5, 7, 13, and 18 in all boroughs until June 30, 2022. The bill provides that for such buildings inspected between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021, the certification of correction may be submitted later than 120 days or later than 180 days following the inspection date, as applicable, but no later than June 30, 2022. This bill would also require DOB to conduct targeted outreach regarding complying with the requirements of Local Law 152 of 2016 by December 1, 2021.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available
Int 2321-2021 ARobert E. Cornegy, Jr. Amended and Coupled on General OrdersInspection of building gas piping systems and extension of time to complete work required by inspection.IntroductionPursuant to Local Law 152 of 2016 and Department of Buildings (DOB), rules, between January 1 and December 31 of every fourth year, building gas piping systems must be inspected in community districts in all boroughs. DOB rules also require submission of a certification that all conditions identified in the inspection report have been corrected no later than 120 days, or if more time is needed, no later than 180 days following the inspection date. Although a late certification is permitted when additional time for a correction is needed, where a property owner is unable to timely complete an inspection, there is no way for the property owner to seek an extension of time to complete the inspection. In addition, a property owner is required to have gas piping in their building inspected, even if the building does not have active gas service. This bill would allow a property owner of a building with gas piping but not active gas service to forego their gas piping inspection so long as they provide certification from their utility company and themselves that there is no active gas service in their building. If they resume gas service they must obtain a certificate of approval of gas installation from DOB and comply with the gas piping inspection and certification requirements of local Law 152. This bill also allows DOB to grant additional time to submit a certification, beyond 180 days, if additional time is needed to ameliorate conditions that must be corrected. Finally, this bill provides a 180 day extension to comply with both the inspection and certification requirements of Local Law 152 for any building owner who requests an extension.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available
Int 2404-2021 ABrad S. Lander Amended and Coupled on General OrdersCertifications of no harassment.IntroductionThis bill would extend the certification of no harassment pilot created by Local Law 1 of 2018 until September 27, 2026. Buildings discharged from Article 7-A program, unless such building is the subject of a rehabilitation loan; buildings where a full vacate order has been issued, except where such vacate order was issued due to a fire; buildings where there has been active participation in the alternative enforcement program which have been discharged from such program; buildings where a court or DHCR have made a harassment finding; and buildings indicating significant distress as determined by the Building Qualification Index (BQI) would be required to apply for the CONH for covered work. Interior demolition conducted during renovation of occupied units necessary to protect public health and safety, or repairs, replacement, modification, or partial demolition work in a building that is the minimum required to be performed to address conditions for rescission of a vacate order would not require a CONH. A court may find that acts of harassment that caused the denial of a certification of no harassment constitute harassment and shall in those cases award to each lawful occupant of a dwelling unit that was subject to such harassment $5,000 plus reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.Approved by CouncilPass Action details Not available

This bill would extend the December 31, 2021 inspection deadline for buildings in CD 2, 5, 7, 13, and 18 in all boroughs until June 30, 2022. The bill provides that for such buildings inspected between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021, the certification of correction may be submitted later than 120 days or later than 180 days following the inspection date, as applicable, but no later than June 30, 2022. This bill would also require DOB to conduct targeted outreach regarding complying with the requirements of Local Law 152 of 2016 by December 1, 2021.   Action details Not available
Int 2321-2021 ARobert E. Cornegy, Jr.~coupledA and GOInspection of building gas piping systems and extension of time to complete work required by inspection.IntroductionPursuant to Local Law 152 of 2016 and Department of Buildings (DOB), rules, between January 1 and December 31 of every fourth year, building gas piping systems must be inspected in community districts in all boroughs. DOB rules also require submission of a certification that all conditions identified in the inspection report have been corrected no later than 120 days, or if more time is needed, no later than 180 days following the inspection date. Although a late certification is permitted when additional time for a correction is needed, where a property owner is unable to timely complete an inspection, there is no way for the property owner to seek an extension of time to complete the inspection. In addition, a property owner is required to have gas piping in their building inspected, even if the building does not have active gas service. This bill would allow a property owner of a building with gas piping but not active gas service to forego their gas piping inspection so long as they provide certification from their utility company and themselves that there is no active gas service in their building. If they resume gas service they must obtain a certificate of approval of gas installation from DOB and comply with the gas piping inspection and certification requirements of local Law 152. This bill also allows DOB to grant additional time to submit a certification, beyond 180 days, if additional time is needed to ameliorate conditions that must be corrected. Finally, this bill provides a 180 day extension to comply with both the inspection and certification requirements of Local Law 152 for any building owner who requests an extension.   Action details Not available
Int 2404-2021 ABrad S. Lander~coupledA and GOCertifications of no harassment.IntroductionThis bill would extend the certification of no harassment pilot created by Local Law 1 of 2018 until September 27, 2026. Buildings discharged from Article 7-A program, unless such building is the subject of a rehabilitation loan; buildings where a full vacate order has been issued, except where such vacate order was issued due to a fire; buildings where there has been active participation in the alternative enforcement program which have been discharged from such program; buildings where a court or DHCR have made a harassment finding; and buildings indicating significant distress as determined by the Building Qualification Index (BQI) would be required to apply for the CONH for covered work. Interior demolition conducted during renovation of occupied units necessary to protect public health and safety, or repairs, replacement, modification, or partial demolition work in a building that is the minimum required to be performed to address conditions for rescission of a vacate order would not require a CONH. A court may find that acts of harassment that caused the denial of a certification of no harassment constitute harassment and shall in those cases award to each lawful occupant of a dwelling unit that was subject to such harassment $5,000 plus reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.   Action details Not available
