AN ACT to amend the administrative code of the  city  of  New  York,  in
  relation to sidewalk shed permit renewal

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

  Section 1.  Section 105.8.3 of the New York  city  building  code,  as
amended  by  section 1 of subpart 1 of part C of local law number 141 of
the city of New York for the year 2013, is amended to read as follows:
  105.8.3 Special provisions for renewal of permit for a sidewalk  shed.
An  application for the renewal of a construction equipment permit for a
sidewalk shed used in connection with the alteration of a building shall
be accompanied by a report, acceptable to the department, prepared by  a
registered  design  professional who has examined that part of the prem-
ises on which the work requiring the use of a  sidewalk  shed  is  being
performed.  Such  report  shall document the condition of the applicable
part of the premises and the scope of work that has been performed ther-
eon since the issuance of the permit and shall provide  an  estimate  of
the additional time needed to complete the work.
  NO  SIDEWALK  SHED  PERMIT  SHALL  BE  RENEWED UNLESS THE COMMISSIONER
DETERMINES THAT SUCH SIDEWALK SHED IS BEING USED AS PART OF  AN  ONGOING
CONSTRUCTION  PROJECT.  IN  MAKING  SUCH DETERMINATION, THE COMMISSIONER
SHALL CONDUCT AN INSPECTION OF THE  CONSTRUCTION  SITE  FOR  WHICH  SUCH
PERMIT  RENEWAL  IS SOUGHT. A CONTRACTOR OR LICENSEE SHALL SUBMIT TO THE
COMMISSIONER DOCUMENTATION IN SUPPORT OF PERMIT RENEWAL  INDICATING  THE
DATES  AND  TIMES  PERSONS  EMPLOYED  IN  THE  CONSTRUCTION PROJECT HAVE
UTILIZED THE SIDEWALK SHED THAT IS  THE  SUBJECT  OF  A  PERMIT  RENEWAL
REQUEST.  A CONTRACTOR OR LICENSEE WHO SUBMITS OR CAUSES TO BE SUBMITTED
DOCUMENTATION THAT CONTAINS FALSE  OR  MISLEADING  STATEMENTS  SHALL  BE
SUBJECT TO A CIVIL PENALTY NOT TO EXCEED ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS.

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