Section 102-04 of Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York is amended to remove the civil penalty waiver provision for sidewalk sheds with expired permits. This amendment makes clear that civil penalties will be assessed for keeping a sidewalk shed up after the expiration of a valid permit.

    I am in favor to issue penalties for expired sidewalk sheds. Also there should be CCTV cameras underneath the sidewalk sheds to prevent crime. CCTV cameras are inexpensive and footage can be stored online. Also any color change to the color of the sidewalk shed should not be painted in colors that cause people with visual impairement to not be able to make out the sidewalk shed.
