Section 1. Vehicle removal task force. a. There shall be an interagency task force to examine existing procedures or requirements for removing from city streets vehicles that are abandoned or parked without a license plate or valid registration. Such task force shall develop recommendations to improve existing removal practices in response to complaints from local residents, including, but not limited to, recommendations for rules or legislation regarding removing such vehicles from public streets.

b. The task force shall consist of the commissioner of transportation, the commissioner of sanitation, and the police commissioner, or the respective designee of each such commissioner, and two additional members appointed by the mayor. The mayor shall designate one member to serve as the chair of the task force. Any vacancy on the task force shall be filled in the same manner as the original appointment. All members of the task force shall serve without compensation, except that each member shall be allowed actual and necessary expenses, to be audited in the same manner as other city expenses.

c. The task force shall invite representatives from the New York state department of motor vehicles, the New York state department of transportation or any other relevant state agency identified by the task force, to participate in at least one task force meeting or to review the report required by subdivision e of this section.

d. The task force shall meet at least five times and shall convene at least one public hearing in each of the five boroughs. The chair of the task force shall convene the first meeting no later than 90 days after the date this local law takes effect.

e. No later than one year after the date this local law takes effect, the task force shall submit a report to the mayor and the speaker of the council setting forth its recommendations as described in subdivision a of this section.
