Change of Criteria for the Removal of Derelict Bicycles from Public Property
Proposed Rules: Closed to Comments
Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule
The Department of Sanitation (“DSNY”) proposes to amend its rule for the removal of derelict bicycles from public property by:
1.) reducing the requirements of derelict condition from a minimum of three characteristics to a minimum of two characteristics,
2.) removing flat or missing tires as a derelict condition characteristic, and
3.) changing the minimum amount of rust cover from 75 percent to 50 percent.
DSNY’s authority for these rules is found in sections 753 (a) and (b) of the New York City Charter and by sections 16-122 and 16-128 of the New York City Administrative Code
