AN  ACT  to  amend  the  administrative code of the city of New York, in
  relation to enacting the New York city department of buildings  commu-
  nity accountability act

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Legislative findings.  The  legislature  hereby  finds  and
declares  that  the  health  and  safety of the population living in and
around the many construction projects within the densely populated  city
of  New  York  is  a matter of state concern as pressure mounts to build
more and more while completing projects in the shortest  time  possible.
Construction  is  the  most  dangerous occupation, with death rates four
times  the  average  for  other  workers  and  conditions  adjacent   to
construction sites dangerous to the public.
  A comprehensive public reporting system for the tracking of accidents,
vacate orders, safety violations, and enforcement actions of the depart-
ment of buildings is an essential component of assuring greater account-
ability  and  transparency in assuring compliance with the building code
and the zoning resolution to improve public safety.
  S 2. This act shall be known and may be cited as the  "New  York  city
department of buildings community accountability act".
  S 3. Section 28-103.18.1 of the administrative code of the city of New
York,  as  added  by local law number 33 of the city of New York for the
year 2007, is amended to read as follows:
  S 28-103.18.1 Complaint records. The department shall keep records  of
complaints  made  by  any  person  in reference to any building or other
matter under the jurisdiction of the department.    Recorded  complaints
shall include the name and residence of the complainant, the name of the
person  complained  of,  the  date of the entry of the complaint and any

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
