BILL NUMBER:S493

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 be 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.
