BILL NUMBER: S868

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the public housing law, in relation to sanitation
services provided to the New York city housing authority


PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL :
The New York City housing authority shall not De required to pay any
charges, assessments or other fees in connection with sanitation
services provided by the sanitation service of the city of New York to
its housing facilities.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :
Section 402 of the public housing law is amended by adding a new
subdivisions 5-b:

5-b. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 16-114 of the
administrative code of the city of New York, the New York city housing
authority shall not be required to pay for sanitation services
provided by the sanitation department of the city of new York pursuant
to title sixteen of such code. Any provision of any agreement,
contract, memorandum of understanding, or other arrangement by which
the New York city housing authority agrees or is required to pay for
such sanitation services shall be null and void; provided that this
subdivision shall not affect or impair the effectiveness or
enforceability of any other provision of such agreement, contract,
memorandum of understanding, or other arrangement.

JUSTIFICATION :
Four hundred thousand residents, 5% of New York city's population,
live in NYCHA housing. This cash strapped agency should not have to
make cash payments to the city for basic services which are provided
through tax dollars. One public agency should not have to pay another
public agency to do what it should already be doing. With NYCHA
running a $200 million deficit every year, the payments should be
eliminated and residents should receive sanitation services as do
other residents.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
Previously introduced.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
Immediately.
