A report by the City Planning Commission (CPC) regarding an application submitted by Governors Island Corporation doing business as The Trust for Governors Island pursuant to Section 201 of the New York City Charter for an amendment of the Zoning Resolution of the City of New York, to add Article XIII, Chapter 4, establishing the Special Governors Island District in Community District 1, Borough of Manhattan, and to amend related Sections to modify the proposed amendment to the Zoning Resolution to add physical culture or health establishments to the list of permitted uses. The request was ultimately approved by CPC with amendments (see C 130190 ZMM for applications filed concurrently with this one).
As mandated by Section 12 of the New York City Charter, the Mayor reports to the public and the City Council twice yearly on the performance of municipal agencies in delivering services. The annual Mayor's Management Report (MMR) covers the twelve-month fiscal year period, from July through June. The Preliminary Mayor's Management Report (PMMR) covers performance for the first four months of the fiscal year, from July through October. The Charter provisions governing the submission of the MMR can be viewed on the Mayor's Office of Operations' website at www.nyc.gov/mmr.
The MMR and PMMR cover the operations of City agencies that report directly to the Mayor. Three additional non-Mayoral agencies are included, for a total of 45 agencies and organizations. Activities that have direct impact on New Yorkers - including the provision of support services to other agencies - are the focus of the report. The report is organized by agency around a set of services listed at the beginning of each agency chapter. Within service areas, goals articulate the agency's aspirations. The services and goals were developed through collaboration between the Office of Operations and the senior managers of each agency.
A growing number of New York City schools has qualified for federal Title I-A funding in recent years. But the city is getting less money than it did years ago even as federal allocations have grown nationwide. We explain the fiscal and demographic reasons why.
The Mayor struck deals with the city's two largest labor unions in June that provide paid parental leave to more than 200,000 municipal workers. The two deals have a number of major differences. IBO takes a closer look, examining the assumptions and estimating the costs to the city.
