 A Webb & Brooker Publication September 2015 

Bernard Warren named to Jamaica Now Leadership Council

Webb & Brooker is proud to announce that its President has been named to the Queens Borough Presidents Jamaica NOW Leadership Council.

The Jamaica NOW Leadership Council is an oversight task force designed to monitor the strategic investments laid out in the Action Plan to encourage the responsible growth of Jamaica, Queens.

The Plan aims to increase quality jobs and small business support, promote commercial growth and economic development and improve livability through various cultural, creative and programmatic platforms to enhance the greater Jamaica Area.

2012 Buildings enrolled in the automatic Multiple Family Conservation Program were granted a four-year grace period, until June 30, 2016 for completion of the following MCP requirements:

  • Install a water meter for the entire premises (unmetered properties only) and where required, a separate commercial meter. The separate commercial meter is required if the building has one or more “high use” commercial tenants using more than about 250 gallons per day (gpd). Laundromats, Food- and Medical-related businesses are specifically included in the “high-use” group.
  • Install an Automatic Meter Reading device
  • Install high-efficiency fixtures in 70% of the dwelling units

Failure to complete all of the requirements by June 30, 2016 will result in this property being switched from the flat MCP rates to meter-based billing or, if applicable, Attributed Consumption Charges as of July 1, 2016.

Property owners must notify DEP of MCP compliance by completing the Multiple-Family Conservation Program form and following the submission instructions on the back of the form. The form must be postmark by June 30, 2016 to avoid expulsion from the MCP and its associated rates.

Please contact a customer service representative, Monday through Friday from 9:00AM to 5:00PM, at (718)595-6242. You can also email your questions to

We look forward to your feedback on this edition of RE-CONNECT. Contact Webb & Brooker today at (212) 926-7100 or to learn about our Property Management, Sales and Real Estate Development Services.
