BILL NUMBER:S5023

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the general city law, in relation to requiring notice of public
work projects to residents in certain cities

PURPOSE:

To inform residents within a 1/2 mile radius of the public work to be
performed to forewarn of possible service interruptions and/or
nuisances linked to the duration of the public work project.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Amends General City law, Section 18(e), whereby the City is
to notify residents within cities of a population of one million or
more public work projects that will exceed duration of forty-eight
hours.

Section 2: Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

Due to high volumes of congestion experienced in cities brought on
from motor vehicles on the road and/or foot traffic, residents within
these urban areas must cope with nuisances. An additional, taxing
nuisance is construction, repairs or other public work brought forth
from the City. To diffuse frustration experienced by residents, and
to inform residents of such work taking place, residents shall be
notified of the approximate amount of time it will take the City to
complete such work. Doing so allows residents to plan accordingly and
navigate any inconveniences that may be brought on by the public work
projects.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

None perceived.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Shall take effect on the thirtieth day after it becomes a law.
