BILL NUMBER:S3391

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, resi-
dents 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: 2011: S.5023-A Referred to Cities Committee 2012:
S.5023-A Referred to Cities Committee, Discharged to Rules Committee,
Ordered to Third Reading, Recommitted to Rules Committee

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None perceived.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it becomes
a law.
