The Environmental Control Board (ECB) proposes to amend its Department of Buildings (DOB) Penalty Schedule.
The proposed rule amends the Buildings Penalty Schedule by:
– Updating sections of law for certain violations (“Failure to provide pedestrian protection for sidewalks and walkways,” “New building or open lot occupied without a valid certificate of occupancy,” and “Failure to obey a vacate order”),
– Updating descriptions for certain violations (“New building or open lot occupied without a valid certificate of occupancy” and “Failure to obey a vacate order”),
– Deleting one existing violation (“Use of supported scaffold without a scaffold user certificate”), and
– Adding one new violation (“Scaffold training certificate card not readily available for inspection”).
There is a Public Hearing Scheduled for Tuesday, November 10, 2015, from 2:00pm to 3:00pm to discuss the changes.
The meeting will take place at:
NYC Environmental Control Board
66 John Street 10th Floor Conference Room
New York, NY 10038
