Council and Administration Reach Landmark Agreement on Water Policy
Deal Ends Debate on Mid-Year Water Rate Increase

City Hall * Speaker Christine C. Quinn, together with Finance Chair David Weprin and Environmental Protection Chair James Gennaro, today announced a landmark agreement with the Administration on legislation regarding New York City's water and sewer lien policies after a year and a half of negotiations. The legislation will establish for the first time important protections for New Yorkers in the Department of Environmental Protection's (DEP) lien and billing policies for stand alone water liens on residential properties. Most significantly, the agreement will circumvent the need for a mid-year increase in municipal water rates.
