WYSIWYG

WHEREAS, on April 2, 2018, I issued Executive Order Number 180 declaring a disaster emergency within the territorial boundaries of the counties of Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, and Richmond after determining that the environmental health conditions in residential properties managed by the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) constitute a public nuisance or condition affecting the security of life and health of tenants, and, pursuant to Public Health Law Section 1301, ordered the nuisance conditions located therein to be abated and removed and suspended statutory and regulatory provisions to facilitate action necessary to cope with the State disaster emergency;

 

WHEREAS, Section 29-a of the Executive Law provides for the temporary suspension of laws during a state disaster emergency for a period of thirty days, if compliance with such provisions would prevent, hinder, or delay action necessary to cope with the disaster and further provides that, upon reconsideration of all of the relevant facts and circumstances, the suspension may be extended for additional thirty-day periods;

WHEREAS, the conditions of habitability at NYCHA-managed residential properties continue to constitute a public nuisance affecting the security of life and health in the city of New York and, as a result, a disaster remains imminent for which the affected local government is unable to respond adequately;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, ANDREW M. CUOMO, Governor of the State of New York, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution of the State of New York and Executive Law Section 28, hereby declare a continuing State Disaster Emergency for NYCHA complexes within the territorial boundaries of the counties of Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, and Richmond and order the nuisance conditions located therein to be abated and removed in accordance with the terms and conditions of Executive Order 180.

FURTHER, I, ANDREW M. CUOMO, Governor of the State of New York, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Section 29-a of Article 2-B of the Executive Law, and after having reconsidered all the relevant facts and circumstances, do hereby find that the temporary suspension of laws is necessary to cope with the continuing state disaster emergency declaration in Executive Order 180 and order that the suspension of laws and regulations ordered therein shall be continued through June 2, 2018.

 

 

G I V E N   under my hand and the Privy Seal of the State in the City of Albany this second day of May in the year two thousand eighteen.

 

 

BY THE GOVERNOR
