Rule Full Text
The Department of Environmental Protection (“Department” or “DEP”) is proposing to add new rules to implement Section 1043(g) of the New York City Charter, which permits any person to petition a city agency to consider the adoption of any rule and requires each agency to have rules creating a procedure for such petitions.
Attendees who need reasonable accommodation for a disablity such as a sign language translation should contact the agency by calling 1 (718) 595-6531 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by November 17, 2021

In the proposed rule, it is not clear what “the email address
identified on the Department’s website” is.
Please specify a specific DEP email address, in the rulemaking
petitions rule, to which rulemaking petitions should be sent.
Proposed section § 60-04(b), “the Department will” should instead read “the Department shall.” It is unclear what favorable purpose the more-relaxed “will” language serves. As stated in the Notice, “shall” and “must” denote mandatory requirements; the Department’s response deadline should be a mandatory one. (As far as I can tell, “will” is not a defined term)
