BILL NUMBER:S6139A

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to
requiring the sanitation department of the city of New York to provide
owners, lessees or person in charge of a premises at which a violation
of the city solid waste disposal law is alleged to have occurred with a
photograph of the materials, condition or situation constituting the
violation

PURPOSE:

Requires a uniformed member of the sanitation department of the city
of New York to provide a photograph of the materials, condition or
the situation alleged to constitute the violation.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 adds a requirement to the administrative code of the city of
New York that would require violations to be accompanied by a
photograph taken by the enforcement agent of the condition on the
property that led to the sanitation ticket's issuance.

Section 2 provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

This provision would enable residents to have a photo of the
conditions on their property that lead to a New York city Department
of Sanitation violation. It would also simplify the appeals process
with the Environmental control Board. The administrative judge would
have a date stamped photograph to review while considering the
property owner's appeal.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall have
become a law.
