Description:
One of the principal avenues city agencies have for the exercise of their authority under the Charter and the Administrative Code is the promulgation and enforcement of rules. For example, when the Charter and/or the Administrative Code authorize an agency to seize property, close certain establishments and impose monetary penalties, that authority is normally fleshed out by the agencies during the rulemaking process. During this process, agencies, for example, set specific dollar amounts and identify the conditions that must prevail before an establishment may be closed or property seized. The rules also set out the specific steps those affected by agency action must take in order to reopen their establishments, challenge the imposition of penalties, and recover their property. Given the scope of the power agencies exercise through this medium, it is important for agency attorneys and attorneys representing businesses and individuals subject to city rules to become familiar with their function as well as their limitations. This CLE program proposes to acquaint attendees with the nature and purpose of rules, the process by which they are promulgated, how best to draft them, as well as the statutory and court limitations imposed upon them.
