9:51 am
office building and not as a core function of the library housing the libraries collections so i'm completely taken aback that now those materials are going to be moved even further away then brooks hall which is basically the underground area in the civic center. i think the lack of public process here is very problematic. it is something that will have something to say about on the overall budget issue, but the idea that collections will be moving further and further away when the literacy and learning center functions be in any location in the area of the library or not is very very problematic. it is real dismantling of the library as a library. thank you. >> thank you very much.

hours. in general i have to say we are always in favor of more hours, more access >> student the public, but hours are not potatoes, there are hours the citizens said they wanted consistently to the library through all the surveys and testimony and that is evening and weekends. the library made no clarity to your committee orally or in the presentation materials as to which-what the hours will be that are changed nor what existing hours are and there was no process what so ever. i would say also proposition d which made the library rich requires a specific process and have a copy of proposition d which i can give to you and that has not been fallowed either. that is because the library has consistently chinched library hours. the last time they ignoreed what the public said and tried to cut every evening from
10:00 am
9 to 8 o'clock and saturday mornings. we fought that and they had to retreat. this should not be imposed unless there is a proper process. >> thank you. any other members of the public who wish to comment on items 10 or 11? seeing none, public comment is closed. colleagues we have departmental budgets for 10 and 11. unless the city attorney corrects me bhaut we like to do is take a motion accepting the budget analyst rmd recommendations cuts. all departments in agreement and forward 10 and 11 to the board meeting for july 12 of this year 2016. >> through the chair like to make a motion to that effect so 10 and 11 adopt the budget analyst recommendation and send to full board with positive recommendation. >> motion by supervisor yang

10:17 am
lieu. our charter duty to present to the budget and finance committee the budget priorities this year. there are things we have been working on this year and things we hope for the youth commission working on next year and into the future. i'll present the first budget priority which is investing in education and engagement of young voters. we would like to thank you again for sharing the chamber with us in the first youth xhirgz board of supervisors joint meeting and voting this into the november 2016 ballot. so, as you all know i won't go into history explanation of what vote 16 and this priority is, but briefly go over updates such as 16 and 17
10:18 am
preregistration opportunities [inaudible] work as poll workers in the june and november election and school district and board of education promises to step up the [inaudible] crimulum and stuntd registration efforts in public high schools. our recommendation is we hope that vote 16 passes this november even if it does not we hope the board and mayor lee encourage voter par tisitation especially in 16, 17 and young voters which are historically low voter turn out. partner with the school district registering students to vote and exploring opportunities and supporting already existing efforts to allow 16, 17 year olds to vote or encourage them to vote such as youth
10:19 am
empowerment [inaudible] created in the youth commission and you may have seen this speak in the cojoint meeting. they have done a lot of work to get the initiative where it was. theyprinted two different leaders to community members and work behind the scenes and like to thank them as well. moving to commissioner lee recollect on the next priority. >> thank you for having us today. i'm commissioner lee, district 4 commissioner and our second priority is engage youth and community benefit agreements and community benefit districts so the youth commission has championed youth choice while investigating the [inaudible] better support youth, we hosted a town hall and returned with a wide range of asks, there were about 20. we
10:20 am
thought there was no better way to encompass young peoples perspective than having a youth representative sit on the citizen advisory committee. so, our next priority results from one of the most popular requests of the town hall that i mentioned earlier and that is more work force development opportunities especially from technology communities. some of the companies have already done work in the area however, work force development is a priority. in the 2014-15 fiscal year [inaudible] had 30 percent more participants that expected so we met with office of economic and work force development to see how well we can work with private sector companies to create more work force development opportunities
10:21 am
and they told us a lault of these companies are willing to work with us so we want it take advantage of the many technology comps companies in san francisco. i'll pass it over to the next commissioner. >> good afternoon budget and finance committee, thank you for having us, my name is [inaudible] from district 10. i will present priority 4. we ask the board of pr visors invest alternatives to building a new jail. last year the full youth commission we supported to not have [inaudible] a lot of youth came out to the hearing we had from youth experiences who experienced parents of incarceration and how that directly impacted their lives. we came to the conclusion to oppose the detention center. so, for
10:22 am
-there is adult young court which is established in the process of last year 2015 where from the ages of 18 to 25 year olds are accepted into the program. this excludes homicides, gang and gun violences offenses also. this is a way to invest in the youth and give them another chance which is a great way and alternative also. we want the city capital investment to reflect the values of young san franciscan responsible for paying for jails and jails would cost a lot of money. recommendations we ask the board of supervisors invest to alternative [inaudible] considering there are a lot of youth in the jail
10:23 am
population. and also we provide need services for non detention settings and include minuteal health, job placement, educational resources. and as for the priority 5, we ask the board of pr visors also include services for [inaudible] incarceration is the most adverse childhood experiences and there are [inaudible] so, we have 3 areas so one is time of arrest. there is a department general order 7.04 which is the police commission [inaudible] which is just police officer making sure there is [inaudible] when is a parent is being arrested if the child is present. also visitation policies so communication barriers are a
10:24 am
challenge with children with incarcerated parents have so we ask that support is also [inaudible] visitation. [inaudible] county jails. we had met with sheriff hensy committed to supporting this. finally, school district support. sfusd has committed to support children with incarcerated parent and implementing a [inaudible] for our recommendations, we just ask that there is expanding and training of department general ordjure ask it is actually implemented and really follow through and continue to advertise and evaluate [inaudible] support communication
10:25 am
between the parent and child and the school district [inaudible] focus school districts and yeah, just helping them out. and i'll move to priority 6. >> good evening supervisors. my name is jeo vona sotey and district 9 youth commissioner. increase service and support for homeless youth and declare 2017 the year of recognizing homeless youth. so, nationally there are about over $300,000 homeless youth. we have recommendations to solve this problem. the first is declare 2017 the
10:26 am
year of homeless youth to know homeless youth are not bad and erase the stigma they are run aways. we want to dedicate staff to help homeless youth at the new department of homelessness. we also want to revisit the youth homeless count because if you see the numbers from the different reports there is a lot of variances which the numbers-we get a better system for that. our next priority is to fund and complete the transitional age youth housing plan and [inaudible] there are approximately 8,000 youth in san francisco and to combat this issue in 2005 mayor newsome created a national transitional age youth task force to help the city support the youth and create a housing plan. it is supposed to be
10:27 am
completed in 2015 with 400 units but there was a lot of neighborhood opposition and the recession happened so there want time and money to make the units. and there are 730 unit that need to be identified and our recommendation is we complete the goal of 2015 housing plan and that we make a new one to make sure there is enough housing for everyone with the current numbers. we want to plan budget for the on site supportive needs of tay and supportive housing and address tay housing. we want promote learn wink the tay population so they know their rights and can have things like credit history and yeah,
10:28 am
all that stuff. thank you. >> thank you very much. >> so good afternoon supervisors. [inaudible] current chair thof youth commission and one of 6 appointees. for priority 8 we ask the may rs aufs and san francisco boardf supervisors look into had expanded youth fund and allocation for tay services. the childrens funtd was expanded with 73 voter approval. the childrens fund received additional funding and as a result after school and youth programs have been implemented but as a consequences we have not seen the same amount of allocations for tay services, so as our policy recommendation
10:29 am
and as our recommendation to all of you is that you look into the different possibility to expened the childrens fund to reflect the amount of tay services needed within the city and we see a proportional amount of tay funding allocate #d to the same amount of age groups funded under the childrens fund and other allocations. thank you. >> moving to priority 9. we also ask the board to insure there is respective relationship with sfpd and youth in general. the youth commission has met with the police commission and as paresult of that there is also the mou which will-the relationship between ros's and the school district. the only recommendation we have, there is ongoing relationship with sfpd and
10:30 am
youth and ask there ask de-escalation and training strategies youth can interact because you have been protested when alex neito and mario woods shooting this year and present at the youth forums hosed by [inaudible] and also the police commission. >> so, for priority number 10, we ask the mayor and board of supervisors to look fl to methods for implementing successful [inaudible] as you know, 12 n is a administrative code policy since 1999, but for reasons for better or worse, we have seen it is a
10:31 am
severely under funded mandate. in 2014 the youth commission and supervisor avalos held many works groups to see what the issues were particularly with 12 n and from the conversations held it was noted that what really need today be implemented is funding. money city departments that primarily serve use such as dpys and jpd would like a tracking system that identifies lgbt youth and see the different services but the implementation isn't what we expected or ask in the years past so like to see this policy revisit and see for ways city family can come together and have successful implementation. >> so our 11th priority is
10:32 am
continue support for free muni for youth. as you know the youth commission is working for a long time to make sure free muni is accessible for all youth and we have seen really good improvements in the ridership of youth with less fair evasion and using clipper cards so we want to make sure this stays on the budget. yeah, so we are grateful for support of the board of supervisors and mayor and google and want to ask you guys to continue supporting it and to commit to keeping the funding. thank you. >> for our 12th and final budget and policy priority, we ask the mayor and san francisco board of supervisors continue to support city college of san
10:33 am
francisco so it is open and accessible and democratly run. as many knhoe, city college has been under attack for accreditation and caused a mount of concern as this caters to a lot of under represented communities. most recently after an injunction filed by the city attorney, dennis her reaa the institution was granted a two year period to come fl to compliance after a debate between [inaudible] decision and many community advocates that advocateed for the college not to be closed. the college is under a 2 year period to come into compliance and ask that the board to continue for ways to continuely support the city college of san francisco. as a result of
10:34 am
the accreditation crisis many student have dropped out of the college. the enrollment dwidled. many people were not happy to see the democratly elected board of trustees chs revoked but recently put into place and ask to continue to keep an eye on city college for potential future debates which it is accredited and open access institution. thank you. >> i like to thank you again for having us and i hope that we continue to work on these priorities with you further and if you have questions or comments about any priorities. >> thank you very much. colleagues. supervisor tang. >> i just want to thank you for all the time you put into this
10:35 am
incredibly detailed document. i look forward to reading the supporting details behind your budget priorities and it is helpful for all of us to hear exactly what your priorities are for the upcoming fiscal year so want to thank you for that. this is really great. >> i aults want to acknowledge the youth commission. this is one of the most impressive presentations i have seen and really comprehensive and touches on the important ish oo as we are facing in the city and talk about at the boferd supervisors. i also you know, something that i would love to see in terms of priority 9 working with police officers, i would love to figure a way to get nor san francisco student into sfpd. it is good job but we know residents that grew up here can serve the communities better because this is their city and they are familiar with
10:36 am
our diversity. now that we have ethnic studies and lgbqq studies in the high schools are getting the education they need beyond the communities they live in so love to the work with the youth commission to figure how to recruit more san francisco youth residents especially young people because that is important getting more of our residents in that department. finally, i love to come speak over the summer about the city college proposal to make city college free for all resident and love to have the youth commission support on that through the luxury housing real estate transfer tax. we can be the first city in the country to make city college free for all residents and it is a important institution as many of you know and would love to be able to get your feedback and thoughts on our proposal and how we can make it work administratively so many student from your persfecktive perspective
10:37 am
and what you are hearing. >> let me echo the comments. thank you for your hard work on a monthly basis. thank you for your presentation. to lily, in the back you can't hide. thank you for being here for all yourheard work. thank you everyone and look forward working together in the budget season and having the conversations as we go forward. okay. if colleagues no other questions or comments why don't we open up item 23 to public comment. anyone want to comment on this item or sing about this item? >> good afternoon budget and finance committee.

10:39 am
i will reopen public comment. >> my name is jessica williams and a youth advisory member for larkin street and work for transational age yulth for san francisco. i attend san francisco state university and the only reason i'm able to attend this university is because i live in tay housing and one of the main reasons i live in tay housing is because i can't affords to live in san francisco. with gentrification and all the things going on in san francisco a lot of transitional age youth whether we are student or do vocational jobs, whether we are working diverse jobs we need spaces to live and are here and want to give voiz and rise the voices of lgbtq youth in san francisco especially transitional age youth. i want you to consider everything the youth commission has done and appreciate the work and also want to emphasis
10:40 am
if you can look over more in depth the affordable housing for transitional age youth because without it people like myself would be on the streets and just because i cant afford to live in san francisco or live in san francisco and attend san francisco state doesn't mean people like me don't deserve to be here but there isn't space to be here now and you have a opportunity to create the space. there are radical orgners creating space and you can be a part of that movement as well. thank you. >> thank you very much. anybody else wish to comment? okay. seeing none, public comment is closed. thank you everybody for being here today. colleagues can i entertain a motion to file 23? >> motion by supervisor tang and second by supervisor kim. any other business in front of us? >> no, mr. chair.
