A representative from the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs will deliver a presentation on the Department’s efforts to protect the public from predatory lending practices during a meeting of the Queens Borough Cabinet, chaired by Borough President Katz, on Tuesday, December 5 at 9:30 AM at Queens Borough Hall.
The Department of Consumer Affairs combats predatory lenders, which use deceptive and illegal tactics to bilk vulnerable New Yorkers.
The Borough Cabinet will also hear a presentation from a representative of the Fire Department of City of New York (FDNY) on what members of the public can do to prevent household fires during this holiday season. Fires triggered by candles, decorative lights and holiday cooking often occur during this time of year, so the FDNY is conducting a public awareness campaign to help New Yorkers celebrate the holidays safely.
