MAYOR BLOOMBERG SIGNS LEGISLATION REQUIRING UPGRADES ON MUNI-METERS
Remarks by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg at a Public Hearing on Local Laws
“The second bill before me is Introductory Number 1042-A, sponsored by Council Members Greenfield, Gentile, Vacca, Arroyo, Barron, Cabrera, Eugene, Fidler, Gonzalez, James, King, Koo, Koppell, Palma, Recchia, Richards, Rose, Vallone, Williams, Wills, Garodnick, Rodriguez, Brewer, Mealy, Van Bramer, Dickens, Gennaro, Ulrich and Ignizio.
“Introductory Number 1042-A requires the Department of Transportation to program muni-meters so that they will be unable to accept payment while parking regulations are not in effect, except up to one hour before regulations start. Furthermore the bill also requires muni-meters to be programmed not to accept payment while the muni-meter is missing paper to print timed receipts. All muni-meters must be upgraded to perform these functions within two years.
“I would like to thank Department of Transportation Commissioner Jeanette Sadik-Khan and her staff for their work on this bill along with my Office of City Legislative Affairs. I would also like to thank the City Council for approving this legislation.”
