STATEMENT OF BASIS AND PURPOSE OF PROPOSED RULE:

 

Fire Department rule 3 RCNY §4601-01 sets forth amendments to the fee provisions of the Fire Code, and reflects these new fees by bracketing and underlining, as applicable, the existing text of Section A03 of Appendix A to the Fire Code.

 

The fees relating to plan review of design and installation documents, as set forth in FC A03(45), are proposed to be amended to more closely reflect the cost incurred in reviewing such documents. The current flat fee of $210 per submission compensates the Fire Department for one hour of plan review and related administrative tasks.

 

The Fire Department has analyzed the time expended by the Technology Management Unit of the Bureau of Fire Prevention in reviewing design and installation documents, and has determined that on average the time expended upon such review exceeds two hours.

 

Accordingly, the Department proposes to increase its plan review fee to $420, reflecting an average expenditure of two hours per submission.

 

Plan review of commercial cooking (rangehood) systems is conducted by a different unit within the Bureau of Fire Prevention. The existing fee of $210 for plan review and related administrative tasks in connection with such submissions has been retained unchanged.

Statement of Basis and Purpose

 

The purpose of this proposed rule is to:

·         Enhance recreational opportunities for individuals between the ages of 18 and 24 years at the Department’s recreation centers, and address public health and transitional needs of these individuals, by creating a $25 membership fee category for this age group.

 

·         Reflect the Department’s effort to complement New York City’s Young Men’s Initiative and other key programs.

 

·         Allow patrons and former patrons who once held Senior Citizen Memberships a second opportunity to be grandfathered into that membership category. The Department on July 1, 2011 increased the minimum age for Senior Citizen Membership from 55 to 62 years, but allowed patrons between the ages of 55 and 61 years to renew at the Senior Citizen rate, provided such renewals took place prior to expiration of their memberships. Some patrons, however, were unaware of this option and either allowed their memberships to expire or purchased a new membership at the Adult rate. These patrons and former patrons will again be allowed to purchase Senior Citizen Memberships, if they do so by December 31, 2013 (in the case of those who allowed their memberships to expire) or upon expiration of their current membership (in the case of those who, after July 1, 2011, purchased Adult Memberships).

 

·         Clarify the age ranges for each membership fee category.
