Today Mayor Bloomberg notified building owners and landlords of multi-family residential buildings impacted by Hurricane Sandy that they must restore power, heat and hot water. For those buildings still without critical utility services, owners must sign up for NYC Rapid Repairs or take other steps to correct the services, otherwise they will be subject to enforcement proceedings.



Please circulate this information to any multi-family buildings that are still without heat and electricity:



Owners and landlords of multi-family residential buildings impacted by Hurricane Sandy must take action to make the necessary repairs to provide electricity, heat and hot water to their tenants.

As temperatures continue to drop, endangering the health and safety of the tenants in storm damaged buildings, these essential services must be restored as quickly as possible.

Multi-family residential property owners in New York City are required to provide all essential services and maintain their buildings in habitable conditions that protect the life, health and safety of their tenants. Building owners have two options:

o Owners and landlords may correct the conditions themselves and submit a timely certification to HPD.

o Owners and landlords may sign up for the NYC Rapid Repairs program by calling 311, going to NYC.gov or visiting one of the City's Restoration Centers.

Under The NYC Rapid Repairs program the damage can be quickly assessed and repairs can be made to have these essential services restored.

In affected areas, roughly 95 percent of buildings that are more than six stories have had their critical utility services fully restored.

For mid-sized buildings with multiple units that are below six stories, nearly 70 percent have had their electricity and heat restored.

Owners who fail to promptly correct hazardous conditions themselves or do not sign up with NYC Rapid Repairs to restore essential services to their buildings will be subject to the commencement of enforcement proceedings.



Thank you,



-Ryan Whalen

Chief of Staff to Deputy Mayor Howard Wolfson
