9:35 pm
the the agenda and get back to that item at a later time. madam clerk can you please call item number 25 >> item 25 is a motion tew point [inaudible] maria waters [inaudible] alson lee, with the residency requirement waver and rob [inaudible] terms yet to be determined to the children youth and family oversight [inaudible] >> i want to thank committee members and rules committee for the work on the motion and the number of people moving forward for the oversight committee for dc yurks f. this was set up with legislation for prop c that we authorize the childrens fund and [inaudible] i'm excited about the body. i served on the equivalent before when it was called the citizens
9:36 pm
advisory committee, i was a member when it began in 2001. in writing the legislation in the criteria for the leave saets we looked at creating a diverse body represents many voices in san francisco and want to make sure we have the best members with the least conflict of interest. this was a priority for them as well. we are please would the candidate especially recommending for seat 7x 89 and 11. they represent a great breath of knowledge and experience in early child education, transsitional age youth, parent voices and [inaudible] but in the process while workic on these appointments we found that there was a member and it is hard because one of the members alson lee suzukeee who has tremendous talent in early
9:37 pm
education she works at [inaudible] and we want to make sure we have the representation on the committee as possibility. she is the only chinese member on there but according to the the city attorney and legislation that we have creating a body that she isn't eligible because she receives funding through dcyf. we anticipated this can happen in the rules committee and talked this was a 10ative assignment and hope that we can actually-she can actually refeign the seat but it appears that is not the case so i have to make a motion on the motion to-for the body is strike her name and also strike out on page 1 line 1 is strike her name and on the same page line 3-4 striking the requirement
9:38 pm
that is being waved and on page 2 line 3 and 6 by striking the entire paragraph out that starts alson lee suzukey and ends with term yet to be determined and on page 2 line 103 page 3 line 7 by striking the residency requirement waver. this isn't happy i'm happy about doing. i believe mrs. lee suzooky is a qualified person because of speernss but because of the language we have built fl to the ordinance making sure no one that is part of a staff receiving funds from dcyf can serve on the committee. we want to make sure that language is retained and that is a a legal requirement so we would have to submit to take her name off. i would like to send this one seat, move the rest of the motion forward but this one seat back to the committee where it will be heard with the
9:39 pm
seats that the mayor is going to be proposing and then we can look at along with the names and people that the mayor presented we can consider someone for this remaining seat from the board of supervisors that can assure we get to kind of diversity and representation we want on the committee. ilegal we we'll have someone that is a native cantonese speaker who is chinese. we also need representation from someone who is spanish speaking as well. that is my motion to change the language on the motion and send this one seat back to committee >> supervisor avalos made a motion to strike completely the seat 10 and return that item back to committee for recommend aigds. do we have a second? second fwie supervisor mar. can we take the amendment

and county of san francisco for advertising >> colleagues can we take these items same house, same call >> item 29 resolution to desinginate the newspaper to be the oitreach new 067 san francisco for outreach advertising for 2015-16. small business exchange, bay area reporter for lgbt [inaudible] chinese community, s f. weekly for african american [inaudible] the central city extra for central city neighborhood. the jasmine blue [inaudible] putraro hill dog patch, bay view soma mission bay neighborhood >> colleagues can we take this item same house same call?
9:43 pm
without objection these are adopted unanimously. can we go to roll call for introduction >> yes supervisor wiener is the first supervisor to introduce new business >> thank you madam clerk. colleagues i have one item today which i think is is good news and thinkarve wn should be happy about. for many many years we had a recuring issue in san francisco that we all heard about where people who have their cars stolen and dumped in san francisco often it takes a while for them to find out where their cars are. they only get a 4 hour grace period in terms of storage fees by auto return and they end having to pay significant not just tow ging fees but storage fees that are sometimes worth more than the vehicle so they end up forfitting the vehicle. it produzing huge hardship and it one of those things hanging
9:44 pm
out there for a long time and caused harm to a lot of people. auto return contract expires at the end of july and the mta issued a rfp. mta requested a 8 month extenshz of the currents contract but the mta will revise the fees in connection to the extension to instead of providing a 4 hour grace period for people to retrieval stolen cars, residence receive 48 hours and non residence receive 24 hours so it is a significant increase in terms of giving people the ability to get their cars without having to pay storage fees. in addition, the tow g ing administrative fee will be waved for residence and cut in half for non residence. this is a significant step forward in terms of something that is just unfair. if your car has
9:45 pm
been stolen you have been victimized and to show up to get your car back when you did nothing wrong and told you have to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars is just unfair. the mta is balancing its own financial situation so there are trade offs and cost but this is a step in the right direction and will set a precedent for the longer term contract that will come to us next year. today i'm introduce thg rez dugz to extend the auto return contract and as part of that the mta will revise its fees. thank you >> thank you supervisor wean. supervisor yee >> thank you madam clerkm colleagues earlier this year i requested from the budget and legislative analyst office about the potential of installing vehicle telematics or aka block boxes across the city fleet. the initial
9:46 pm
motivation sucess whether or not equipting the city vehicles can improve the driving behavior of the sate workers. the city paid out 76.9 million in settlements and judgments over the past 5 years. the report highlighted the many advantages of the black boxes including fuel efficient [inaudible] this technology has also proven cost savings in other cities that adopted sauch program. the city of sacramento reports 60 thousand dollars in fuel savings in just the first month after installing the system in 184 of its vehicles. in the eastern municipal boarder riverside county rfx the employees drove
9:47 pm
165 thousand fewer miles and saved 354 thousand dollars in the first 6 months. our city has blax boxes in in 2 [inaudible] with plan for 776 more. there are [inaudible] in the fleet that don't require instullation. i'm scg the city attorney to work with my office to mandate the installation of black boxes across the city fleet and development a program that offers probust data analysis for departments to maximize efficiently. there are 2 main issues i have been spear heading since taking office, one is vision zero, increase pedestrian safety by 2024 and increase efficiency by
9:48 pm
using city fund in a smart manner to help in the long run. the legislation man date the instullation of black boxes in every vehicle by jan 1, 2017. the city administrators will monitor the cyst 78 and utilize the data [inaudible] i want to make sure that the board of supervisors will be part of that conversation and the legislation requiring a annual report to be submit today the board. there is some ovlap between what supervisor farrell spoke of today and i believe that this just strengthen the effort he is looking at. so, i want to-and i want to thank my staff who worked on this for the past few months.
9:49 pm
[inaudible] and also want to thank my cosponsors in this, supervisors avalos, supervisor kim and the other items i just want to say real quickly that i [inaudible] victims of the massacre in charleston north carolina i think it is. the rest i subimate >> thank you supervisor yee. supervisor avalos >> colleagues today i'm introducing a rez dugz that would establish a multidisciplineary process for determineling police staffing levels and essentially want to go through a factual array of study to determine what are the best way tooz establish what our police staffing levels. i think it is essential to determine the police staffing

level should be is what the community says what they are comfortable with. we should look at notanic dotal reasons but real data to drive what staffing levels make most sens. it is important to start off the process with collecting what is done out there in the world in policing in the united states and so this resolution requests the legislative analyst to review public process best practice to evaluate police staffing levels and would like that sent to public safety committee. the rest i submit >> thank you supervisor avalos. supervisor campos. supervisor christensen >> 2 items. concerning the project at sea wall lot 351 also known as 8 washington. this project has become a example of probably how not to
