Proposed Rules Content: 

Section 19-203(b) of the Administrative Code of the City of New York allows DOF to provide for penalties for parking violations. The Department’s rule in 19 RCNY § 39-05 (“Rule 39-05”) codifies all fines pertaining to parking violations issued in violation of 34 RCNY §§ 4-08 and 4-10. DOF collects and processes these fines, remitting the fines to the Commissioner. Currently, the fine for parking in violation of officially posted street cleaning rules as set forth in 34 RCNY § 4-08(d)(1) is $50 in the “Restricted Area,” which is Manhattan from 96th Street and south, between the Hudson and East Rivers. The fine for street cleaning violations outside the Restricted Area is $30. There is a need for greater enforcement to clear vehicles from these parking zones in Northern Manhattan and the other four boroughs in New York City to permit efficient and effective street cleaning.  Making the fines inside and outside the Restricted Area the same citywide will encourage motorists to move their vehicles out of these zones in Northern Manhattan and the other four boroughs so that DSNY equipment can operate more effectively and efficiently in order to meet its goal of providing clean streets in these neighborhoods for New York City residents and workers.

STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE

 In 2013, the Department of Finance (DOF) adopted rules establishing a consistent policy for accepting credit card payments and a uniform administrative fee of 2.49% to defray the cost incurred by the City from credit card transactions.  In 2018, DOF reduced the uniform administrative fee to 2%, which will continue to cover the cost incurred by the City in connection with such credit card transactions.

 On May 10, 2019, Local Law 89 of 2019 amended Section 9-148 of the Administrative Code of the City of New York to eliminate the uniform administrative fee for payments of bail unless the chief administrator of the courts requires a party making a payment of bail to pay a reasonable administrative fee.  The effective date for the elimination of this administrative fee is November 10, 2019.  

 The proposed rule adds bail payments to the list of payments for which an administrative fee cannot be charged.
