Councilman Mark Gjonaj's NYC Moving Forward Week in Review - 4/9/2021


Dear Friends,

As we wrapped up Easter celebrations, a time of hope and renewal, we were also reminded that the power of serving our communities and the joy of giving back is the most humble opportunity and a blessing.

In an effort to forge relationships between the police and the community and Clean Up NYC, I am glad to kick start tomorrow their Let’s Clean UP NYC Together initiative with the NYPD 49th Precinct for some graffiti removal on Lydig Avenue.

As Chair of NYC Council Small Business Committee, I was glad to chair a hearing to discuss legislation that would create a program to educate local businesses on becoming ADA compliant and establish a city-funded grant program that business owners can tap into if they need financial assistance to make the needed renovations accessible for people of all abilities.

Our office has continued to help our constituents to get vaccinated in an effort to stop the spread and help communities gradually and safely return to normalcy.

With the weather warming up, we are working to bring more outdoor events in our neighborhoods such as pet food giveaway, rain barrel giveaway, reusable bag giveaway, more park cleanups etc.

Constituents in District 13 can still take advantage of our Free Tax Preparation in partnership with Urban Upbound as the IRS has postponed the Tax Deadline to May 17th.

We are proud of serving you and being with you throughout this pandemic. Please do not hesitate to contact my office with any issues or concerns at 718-931-1721 or email at


NYC Councilman Mark Gjonaj
District 13, Bronx
