Statement of Basis and Purpose of Rule

Local Law 53 of 2018 added a new subdivision (e) to Section 24-207 of the Administrative Code. This new subdivision requires the commissioner to prescribe specific time frames for inspections in response to after hours noise complaints received by the department to ensure that inspections are most likely to occur at a time that the alleged noise is continued from the time of such complaint, or at a time when the alleged noise is likely to be repeated.

DEP promulgates these rules, as required by section 24-207(e), to establish the method and strategy to inspect after hours complaints when the noise will still be continuing and/or likely to be repeated.

DEP received a comment from one individual requesting that an actual numerical value be tied to the inspection process to clearly set forth the parameters for when the after hours inspection must occur. That suggested revision is captured in this rule.

Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule

Local Law 53 of 2018 added a new subdivision (e) to Section 24-207 of the Administrative Code. This new subdivision requires the commissioner to prescribe specific time frames for inspections in response to after hours noise complaints received by the department to ensure that inspections are most likely to occur at a time that the alleged noise is continued from the time of such complaint, or at a time when the alleged noise is likely to be repeated.

DEP is proposing these rules, as required by section 24-207(e), to establish the method and strategy to inspect afterhours complaints when the noise will still be continuing and/or likely to be repeated.

Consistent with the above, DEP will promulgate the following rule as a new Chapter 52 in Title 15 of the Rules of the City of New York.

The rule is authorized by Section 1043 of the Charter and sections 24-205 and 24-207(e) of the Administrative Code.

Subject: 

Amendment of rules establishing specific time frames for inspections in response to after hours noise complaints.
