Mayor Adams issues directive to reform small business violations

Lawmakers across Queens are hailing Mayor Eric Adams for signing his “Small Business Forward” executive order Tuesday, Jan. 4, to reform existing business regulations, ensuring local businesses face fewer needless fines and penalties.

The new directive builds on Local Law 80 and calls on multiple city agencies to review business regulations with the goal of reducing fine schedules and allowing for cure periods or warnings for first-time violations.
