BILL NUMBER: A9948
 
SPONSOR: Weprin
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to curb repair   PURPOSE: This bill mandates that all curb and curb cut repairs shall be the responsibility of the City of New York and any repairs at a one, two, or three family homes shall be repaired no later than ninety days after the department receives the complaint. If the repair is not competed within 90 days, a homeowner may have the work completed by a licensed contrac- tor and is entitled to a property tax credit for the reasonable cost.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The bill amends section 19-111 of the administrative code of the city of New York. Owners of one, two, or three family homes must make curb and curb cut repair requests on NYC 311 or the official website of the city of New York. The requests must be completed ninety days from the date the department receives the complaint and if that deadline is not met, the owner is entitled to hire a licensed contractor to do the repairs and receive a property tax credit for the cost of the repair.   JUSTIFICATION: Often it takes many months or years for curbs to be fixed after initial reporting. This bill gives homeowners the ability to have maintenance completed with little expenditure if not corrected by the city within ninety days.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
