Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule

Local Law Number 53 of 2018 amended the Administrative Code by adding a new Section 24-223.1, which provides for the issuance of a stop work order when it is found that work is being performed in violation of the provisions of Section 24-222 or 24-228 or any rules promulgated thereunder.

DEP is promulgating these rules, as required by Section 24-223.1, to establish a procedure for requesting a hearing to appeal a written stop work order by amending Chapter 45 of Title 15 of the Rules of the City of New York (RCNY).

DEP is also amending Chapter 32 of Title 15 of the RCNY to add the hearing for appeal of written stop work orders provided for in the new Chapter 45 to the list of adjudicatory hearings that can be conducted by DEP.

DEP received no comments at the public hearing nor were any submitted to DEP.

Consistent with the above, DEP promulgates the following new Rule, to be found at 15 RCNY Chapter 45 and 15 RCNY Chapter 32.

The Rule is authorized by Section 1043 of the Charter and Sections 24-204 and 24-223.1 of the Administrative Code.
