Noise Summonses

Far too many bar and restaurant owners have been victimized by a summons spree initiated by a tiny group of private bounty hunters. These bounty hunters are misusing a 50-year-old citizen complaint law to tag small businesses with several millions of dollars in fines based on bogus noise complaints. 

The NYC Hospitality Alliance is fighting to pass legislation to clarify this law so it cannot continue to be misused to exploit restaurants and bars.
