BILL NUMBER:S3304

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the civil practice law and rules, in relation to increasing the
fixed fees for services provided by sheriffs

PURPOSE:
To increase the fixed fees for New York City sheriffs and marshals in
performance of certain duties.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1. Amends Section 8011 of the Civil Practice Law and Rules, to
increase the fixed fees for sheriffs and marshals.

Section 2. Amends Section 8012 of the Civil Practice Law and Rules, to
increase the fixed fees for mileage in furtherance of the duties of
marshals of the city of New York.

Section 3. Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
Sheriffs and Marshals in New York City perform a multitude of services
to assist creditors in satisfying claims they have successfully
litigated, including:

* levy or execution upon real or personal property;

* income execution;

* recovery of chattel; and

* eviction or sales of real or personal property.

The expenses associated with the performance of these services are not
reimbursed based on actual disbursements, but rather in accordance
with a schedule of modest fees fixed in statute. These fees were last
raised in Ch. 655 of L. 2002, and the mileage was last increased in
Ch. 337 L. 2000.
During this time period, costs of supplies, support staff wages
and office overhead are continually on the rise, as are gas prices.

In New York City gas prices averaged about $1.89 per gallon at the
time of the last increase, over $1.00 less per gallon than
present-day costs.
The Consumer Price Index (CPI), meanwhile, has increased by almost 20%
since 2002.

This legislation will ensure that the fees sheriffs and marshals
receive more accurately reflect the actual costs associated with the
critical functions they perform.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2010 - S.7866 - REFERRED TO CODES; A.11139 - Referred to judiciary Ch.
655 L. 2002; Ch. 337 L. 2000

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Since the fees are paid by the debtor/creditor as appropriate, there
will be a modest increase in the City of New York revenue.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect 90 days after it shall have become a law.

BILL NUMBER:S3304A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the civil practice law and rules, in relation to increasing the
mileage fees in the city of New York
for services provided by sheriffs

PURPOSE:
To increase the mileage fees that may be
collected by
sheriffs and marshals of the City of New York for travel that occurs
completely within the City of New York.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1. Amends Section 8012 of the Civil Practice Law and Rules, to
increase the fixed fees for mileage in furtherance of the duties
carried out by sheriffs and marshals of the City of New York from
$25.00 to $35.00.

JUSTIFICATION:
Sheriffs and Marshals in New York City perform a multitude of services
to assist creditors in satisfying claims they have successfully
litigated, including: A) levy or execution upon real or personal
property; B) income execution; C) recovery of chattel; and D)
eviction or sales of real or personal property.

The expenses associated with the performance of these services are not
reimbursed based on actual disbursements, but rather in accordance
with a schedule of fees fixed in statute. The mileage reimbursement
was last increased in Ch. 337 L. 2000. During this time period the
cost of gas and motor vehicle operating costs have risen substantially.

In New York City, gas prices averaged about $1.89 per gallon at the
time of the last mileage fee increase in 2000. Since 2000, the price
of gas has increased well over 100 percent to over $ 4.00 per gallon.
Further, the Consumer Price Index (CPI), meanwhile, has increased by
almost 20% since 2002 for other operating costs such as the cost of
operating a motor vehicle.

This legislation will ensure that the fees sheriffs and marshals
receive more accurately reflects the actual costs associated with the
critical functions they perform.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2010 - S.7866 - REFERRED TO CODES; A.11139 - Referred to Judiciary Ch.
655 L. 2002; Ch. 337 L. 2000

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Since the fees are paid by the debtor/creditor as appropriate, there
will be a modest increase in the City of New York revenue.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect 90 days after it shall have become a law.
