2:04 pm
als also appreciate your reason for wanting to do this and i guess i'm - i have a lot of questions around this mainly it seems like a more logical thing to ask the u.s. government to support their efforts in italy rather than the city entity and i'm not sure if we ever done this before where we actually as a city make donations to a country that is going to throw some terrible issues i'm thinking of more recent one's like a.d. i don't know what we've done more them. >> thank you for that question supervisor yee as a matter of fact the funds the city received
2:05 pm
in the 1989 lotta's fountain earthquake a long proud tradition of the city and county of san francisco making traditions in 1989, 200 and $50,000 for taipei and 2000 one of the board of supervisors appropriated one hundred thousand dollars for similar earthquake relief and substantially appropriately one hundred thousand dollars for the american councils earthquake relief fund there is a long proud history of doing this time have been good in san francisco we have a proud italian heritage in san francisco and i'm saying that on the eve of the italian parade it is my respect request it perhaps
2:06 pm
colleagues, we consider sending this to the full board without a positive recommendation any public comment on matter seeing none, public comment is closed. supervisor president london breed will that be okay with a roll call without objection we'll sends this matter supervisor yee without a positive recommendation to the full board without a positive recommendation to the full board without objection that's the call madam clerk read the next item. >> item number two the administrative code to reflect is changes in job classifications okay. this is brought to us by the human resources. >> supervisor peskin i'm susan the employee relations director before you a fairly brief matter
2:07 pm
we bring to you on a periodic basin ordinance for the amending the administrative code this is the area of the administrative code that establishing the bargaining unit for the city and county and specification the classifications within each bargaining unit on ann an annual basis all the classifications and classifications that are moving from an unrepresented status to a bargaining unit the item before you this morning. >> thank you for that i noticed as i was reading a number of new classifications mostly in the trade for apprenticeships can you talk about the history and backward. >> yes. we've been working to create in any apprenticeship programs to help bring new untrained labor into the trades and so this is an area of
2:08 pm
increased focus for the department we we've been working with the bargaining unit to expand those programs and then owe noticed on page thirty a new classification for recreation assistance what is that. >> let me just check one thing. >> i actually need to i'll have to get back with you and don't have the backward on that classification specifically and he can get back to you. >> we'll delay this to further in the meeting and i'm interested just to understand whether or not that is part of a a changing management structure within the rec and park department because number of years ago between my terms on the board of supervisors there was some amount of controversy on the eliminations of recreation directors i want to
2:09 pm
understand so we know what we're looking at for how to fits in and on page 15 special examiner what is that? >> sounds like it could be just about anything. >> 12, 29 special examiner bargaining unit number 8. >> i can get you background that is on existing classification previously urban represented and we're moving that into bargaining unit 8 with local 21 not a new one. >> a local 21st rep i get it. >> how did we think i might know the tort it is your duty history of the affirmation by
2:10 pm
page 20 the eliminations of the position classifications. >> i'll have to get back with you information on that as well. >> on page 11 a distinct recollection maybe ms. campbell reminds at 13479 the board of supervisors eliminated 9 classification of planner 5 but that's by the way, didn't show as a new classification i just thought to classification disappeared a decade agree ago it is possible it came back. >> i'll have to get back with you and on page 87 i'm sorry let me find this on page 7 - the 1849 manager and economic
2:11 pm
development position do you know what that is? >> i did not have it it is another one of the unrepresented classification we're moving into a bargaining unit this is like i said moving if unrepresented to bargaining unit 7 with local 21 so we remember back this this year i and received the unrepresented classifications we felt belonged with the existing bargaining united the item before you in this packet and this position included is 14 of these classifies were profiling u.s. bancorp represented and now moving into bargaining unit that represents three hundred and 44 employees. >> so does that mean or mean in certain cases they're going from the exempt to non-exempt
2:12 pm
status. >> not necessarily that doesn't necessarily change this is really from unrepresented status to represented a status. >> do you know how many 1849 there are. >> yes. i do. >> how many. >> actually right now on my list none existing in that classification so currently there are zero no employees in that craze been an existing classification if so utilized there are currently no active employees. >> then why do we need the class. >> from time to time we are recruiting for classifications and they're vacant and they are utilized at other times and so i i got why this is currently vacant but currently when we did a snapshot of this
2:13 pm
all the employees within the classifications that are moving from unrepresented to represented there was none in that classification i can get you background. >> anyone wish to comment testify open that most existing item seeing none, public comment is closed. and why not get answers and then ms. campbell if you can go do our magic if it requires calling the controller to get what relevant history of the program manager community investment and infrastructure whether or not they're intended to be positions not filled that independently get that we'll be here for a while with grand jury report. >> madam clerk call item
2:14 pm
number 3. >> and four together. >> yes. item three and four a hearing and resolution richmond to 9 proceeding supreme court on the 2016-2017 grand jury report entitled san francisco county jails our largest mental health facility needs attention. >> this is another of the 2016 civilly civil grand jury report i'd like to ask mr. cunningham. >> sitting on on behalf of the jury is michael ph.d. >> good morning doctor. >> hello.
2:15 pm
>> good morning supervisors i'm grad to be back to presentation is represents my fourth - well, my second term of services in which i've been a contributor i guess what i want to talk about just in the beginning here is about all of our reports collectively and what they represent to me and why i think the civil grand jury it is important what this represents to may a product of agreement and the challenges of getting people to agree on anything today is significant get 19 juries to agree on years
2:16 pm
of work represents a big challenge and i think that it is worth pointing that out the jail was no exemption from that it was a challenge for us to come up with recommendations and finding that are relevant and that we all can agree upon it is a important issue a nation a state and a city that holds liberty and freedom to be at the core of its value incarcerating people is a serious action one that shouldn't be taken lighting and it perhaps why the first names of the state constitution including the clause that the civil grand juries should look out the
2:17 pm
county jails it is engaged in the process of holding people in custody and denial of personals freedoms as a jury with little background to begin with in the jails when we look at assessing what the jails are all we have to go by the rules and regulations as to how a jail is to be operated and how a jail to be constructed so we looked to california code title 15 minimum standards for local detention and the building standards commission for the local detention facilities we visited every single site and thank the members of sheriff's department and of the jail behavioral health services and
2:18 pm
the jail services that coordinated and helped us to understand really how the jail operates and what the challenges are they're significant and what the question that we begin to ask was can a local standard be 34ri8d to the operation of the county jail given the state regulations so forth those minimum standards i think this board or the board of supervisors this year answered that question and the answer is yes. >> that a standard community standard can be applied and it is a higher standard and the sheriff's department today is very much changed by contemporary problems within the city that led people problem kr5r9d and in the jail system
2:19 pm
for various reasons who's origins are social and family and community related need to say a community related response to them. >> so in our initial look at the jail in question looked could closely and intact the first twenty-four hour or 72 hours hours a person is in jail the most important time to obviously and be aware of issues related to suicides prevent suicides the department has a very good record we thought an important issue to look at had is happening in the world around us and that any life can be saved is important to consider so we looked at irks of transfer of the custody from the departments bringing people in
2:20 pm
and the tracking of medical referrals from the sheriff's department to san francisco general we looked at issues of training, whether or not the department needs to have twenty-four hour behavioral staffing throughout we look at issues of drug diversion which is the exchange of drugs within the jailed population itself noting at the time we were writing this report was the time the cdc was issuing the proscribing has bearing in the jail i'm sure some of the people that will be presenting following me will be discussing this issue and look at the issues of increased staffing the sheriff's department and i'm happy to hear there is a
2:21 pm
a academy class going to take place here soon and the staffing levels come up we feel that it is important to relieve the fatigue under the department for ongoing overtime and we like to see an increase in a variety of work within the department as well as the inclusion of information management through open data it is an important public safety issue that seems like jail population daily populations counts and so forth with a statistic figure to allow for the study of jail by the public where the - the involvement of the public and
2:22 pm
the awareness of the public the operation of the county jail is important for the reason that freedom is important to us so the challenges face by the jail that are social and medical is that we have today a situation where many people living on the streets will have drug issues find themselves in a condition of extreme need they may commit a crime they wouldn't or unable to assess the resources that places them with within the view of law enforcement with few other options available oftentimes they're brought to the county jail sometimes that is medical stabilization for psych stabilization or the provision of services the sheriff's
2:23 pm
department around the country are finding themselves the provider of social services resources that could be provided outing outside of the jail this is the challenge this city is facing right now how to separate the incarceration and the provision of social service resources throughout the city and it shouldn't be forgotten that unfortunate there will always be a need for a county jail but as we get better at providing services within the community to the people and keeping them out of the jail the level of sophistication of the people remained in jail increases and making for the need for the secure facilities and the safety of the sheriff's department employees to be of great concern
2:24 pm
in tare role as a safety partner at this point, i'll turn to sheriff hennessey for follow-up. >> thank you, very much. decrease sheriff hennessey. >> good morning thank you members i'm here today to talk about the grand jury report and thank you to the grand jury i appreciate your thoughtful con rat reporting on this subject and met with the new grudging or grand jury an interesting process and involved when i was in the sheriff's department earlier so i just a couple codify things that michael talked about er doctor taunted was staffing intact the variety of work the number of people working and the data
2:25 pm
collection that he the reenvisioning process that supervisor president london breed established through a resolution this year i want to say that i put my comments in the letter that i wrote to you and i'll wait for questions at this point. >> thank you are there any questions for the sheriff owe read our letter all right. >> supervisor breed any questions for sheriff hennessey i understand a representative here from the police department lieutenant melena. >> thank you sheriff. >> good morning, supervisors. i'm assigned to the bureaucracy and the cit coordinator for the
2:26 pm
san francisco police department. >> the department is in full support of r a-1 b it will be implemented 6 months to transfer the unit from the sheriff's department to the police department with prisoners to central listed jail we're looking at a 6 month process to work on some paperwork we need to update. >> any questions for lieutenant melena i don't think we need a presentation from the city attorney's office their response is very self-explanatory and can't agree or drawer thank you lieutenant. >> and from the mayor's office kelly kirk patrick.
2:27 pm
>> melissa white house here to answer any questions you may have. >> you have nothing to tell us that's fine. >> all right. and i think that doctor pratt may have a horticulture presentation to present to us. >> good morning and thank you. i'm doctor lisa pratt 9 months into my role as the director of the jail health having come from san quentin turn to walk into civil grand jury interviews is my first experience how thoughtful the report is based on that experience overall want to give you information about who we see in the jail and what
2:28 pm
our staffing is like in the jail we have one and 63 ftes and jail health services the bulk it nursing which is a 24/7 operation 32 behavioral health positions we have 10 medical providers, $31 million operating budget we saw 15 thousand unique patient in the jail our average consensus is 13 homicide 13 hundred patient in the jail 85 percent of the people in the jail have not been convicted their prosecute trail or in trial in about a week 60 percent of the population is gone people
2:29 pm
turnover quickly in terms of the finding and recommendations i think that sort of fall into 3 buckets the coordination of outside entities much of which we had already both on the medical and the psychiatric side a lot of involvement from the community to interface with us when patients come in obviously a time of crisis for people when their arrested and incarcerated we want to make sure we continue their care whatever that care was prior to incarceration often people are out find care we want to reestablish the link and the next bucket is really jail help operation in the facilities those are addressed in the report as well and then linkage and re-entry i think really we have a lot of
2:30 pm
opportunity both from the diversion so before people come into jail and how we connect them as they leave jail it is a challenge given the short stay that most people have in the jail i'm happy to discuss it and answer any questions about the finding. >> thank you, dr. pratt colleagues necessary questions and welcome on board we are delighted you're with us. >> okay why not open up for public comment i know we have a lot of folks that have been via involved in jail policy and closing that jail that permanent has bad locks but that one and 35 thousand hundreds has been proposed for sheriff hennessey to fix those locks ms. guy would you like to come
2:31 pm
up? >> thank you chair. thank you members of the gao and thank you for having this hearing i'm are ma former health commissioner and the co-chair of the workshop and a working group and a member of the taxpayers for public safety the purpose of the jail as the grand jury report is corrections and punishment a medical problem that we diagnose in the mental health system is not for punishment and yet san francisco has the largest mental health facility called a jail that's the responsibility of the be taxpayers investment and our recommendations at the board of supervisors not only the sheriff and i'm asking you and we are
2:32 pm
asking you as members of the public to change the paradigm how we treat mentally ill those who have substance abuse factors they're on the street they are isolated in our poor neighborhoods, not in pacific heights and we can do better the mentally ill that live in our richer communities are served in the right places and the health department and community services that's not what we're doing with the people he ask you to change that paradigm and invest in the health facilities thank you, thank you ms. guy any anyone wish to comment that want to testify on items three and four >> public comment is closed. let me add my words for other in
2:33 pm
depth piece of work by the civil grudging with that, i'm going to turn it over to supervisor breed. >> thank you. i want to extend any thanks to the civil grudging grand jury for this comprehensive report as you may know we've been conducting regular meetings with sheriff hennessey, roma guy and barbara garcia the director of the department of health to try and look at it ways in which we can reenvision what it means to have the kind of facilities that w can serve the challenging population especially those individuals with mentioning the friction oftentimes is before we intervene we wanted to have was
2:34 pm
in the population didn't come to that this is frustrating i know for many of the folks that have been involved in this particular battle for so long to make sure that san francisco is not just moving forward with business as usual and building a new jail but initiative ways to provide the right kinds of facilities that serve the population in a more humane and effective way i appreciate the work and shining the light on this issue growing up in the neighborhood i grew up oftentimes sadly a lot of crime and there were people who have and a serving time that were not not the perpetrators of those particular crimes we know there is a need you know to make sure that there are jail facilities for unfortunately violent criminals but we also know that
2:35 pm
there is a need for the right kind of humane response for people will have substance abuse and mentally ill it is frustrating for me, i know that sadly my brother is still incarcerated over the last 16 years in 850 bryant and sadly a substance abuse person needs help and support and has committed crimes i feel he spent 200 enough time paying for the system is broken and here in san francisco fortunately, the conversation we are having now is one that is looking at a broken system and trying to come up with something more humane and something that works in order to represent help and
2:36 pm
truly rehabilitate and true support the individuals that oftentimes are put in our jails and forgotten and then they come back out and try to adjust in society and sometimes not given a fair chance to do so so i'm excited about the conversations i'm excited about the leadership the thought individuals active in trying to figure out a better solution and very appreciative of the civil grand jury for their work other than focusing on this and prepared the responses from the board of supervisors and want to be clear there are limited to the responses the civil grand jury report but make sure we're still committed to addressing this issue we expect to have a hearing about this task force meeting in december to discuss
2:37 pm
alternatives i appreciate the leadership of chair hennessy and barbara garcia who is really you know taken this role seriously and has worked closely together to come up with alternatives to what we see with the jail system i'm going to read into the record what the responses are the boards specific responses to the civil grand jury report at this point so madam clerk let's start the witness first recommendation. >> recommendations rb the board of supervisors should approve the mayors supplemental request to address the problems with old laws that jail- any other remaining issues. >> okay. so the recommendation will not be implemented but just to be clear the responses into
2:38 pm
the record there is funding provided to the sheriff's department to address the lock issues but here's the response that will come from the board of supervisors and if my colleagues have any additional recommendations i'm on the mayor has not introduced a funding so the board of supervisors kaunt can't approve but mayor's office for the fiscal year 2030 and fiscal year 2017-2018 budget it includes one and $32,000 plus and one hundred and 38 plus respectfully for jail number 3 and 4 lights and locks maintenance and the board of supervisors will seriously consider any additional funding needs for safety problems at j four. >> supervisor breed i think i want to say this to the members of the civil grrmg a great
2:39 pm
recommendation it actually has been implemented i think the only technical problem is the word supplemental appropriation so, i mean we can phrase it has been implemented but it was not implemented through a supplemental appropriation that was implemented through the budget but it actually has been implemented it is a simple mammal issue. >> can the city attorney provide us with whether or not we can - >> he's not here but watching i know he's watching and that would be helpful to know it has been implemented but there is also that technicality around the supplemental so i'm open to making that change basis from my perspective a better response. >> my recollection after pouring through the record the mayors response we can find i
2:40 pm
think he said it had been implemented so it that right ms. white house maybe we'll be consistent and say that has been implemented albeit not through a supplemental appropriation. >> is that clear? thank you. i will take that recommendation from supervisor peskin so if we can read the next recommendation and recommendation >> recommendation rc 2 c the board of supervisors should productive the amount with the budget reaches them. >> the implementation will not be implemented the 2017-2018 and 2018 and 2019 budget will not reach the board of supervisors for months and the board can't make commitments since when the
2:41 pm
next budget is passed in consultation with the department of health and the sheriff's department the board of supervisors will carefully consider staffing the behavioral health services 24/7. >> and that's our response and just to reiterate separately from our response this is definitely an important priority for me. >> all right. final recommends. >> supervisor president breed if i can jump in i was looking at the mayors responses i agree seminary to desire from the mayor's office we want precomment this board and the next board that will be different from this board i was looking at the mayors response and page 7 of 11 slightly different remedies one was to the board and one to the mayor
2:42 pm
but they marry each other and requires further analysis not implemented but it was kind of required further analysis designation and a as it might be implemented we don't know yet. >> i want to add it is unfortunate that it does require further analysis according to the mayor because i mean, we know what the problem is and know what we need he remember the first year i was on the board of supervisors there was a request from sheriff hennessey was the sheriff a request from the sheriff's department with additional support what a clear plan to help with the jail behavioral health services and i did not get a lot of support from the mayor's office nor from many members of the board of supervisors to do an ad back to
2:43 pm
the sheriff's department for this particular purpose we know we with need to do and we need to make it happen sooner than later and not keep dancing around this issue that's my $0.02 not part of our responses and want to make it clear we know what to do and know it needs to be funded and keep and a on dancing and will continue to be a strong advocate for this particular service for our jail population. >> and madam president i agree with you wholeheartedly for those people that don't know how this state mandated civil grand jury thing works we have a very limited number of actions that has a matter of law we can take in responding to thing that are brought for a department or board we can say the
2:44 pm
recommendations has been implemented the implementations has not been implemented will be be implemented in the future for a timeline for the implementation that we're not able to do because of the uncertainly the composition of the board in the future and requires further analysis or not implement because not warned reasonable and so the reason he was pushing i'd like to push for number 2 not implemented but will but i don't think we can say that because of what is supervisor breed rational but requires further analysis means we're working on it, it is of one and half a dozens of another. >> thank you supervisor peskin and madam clerk can you please read the final recommendations.
2:45 pm
>> the board of supervisors shall approve the sheriff's request for the insuring all deputies in suicide intervene. >> the board of supervisors response is the recommendation has been implemented per the mayor's office respond. fiscal year 2017-2018 budget includes training all deputies at county jails in crisis intervene including enough for a training. >> so for clarity for recommendations rc 2 c it was offend by the supervisor breed the recommendations will not be implemented. >> no has been. >> has been? >> yes. >> for the second recommendation rc 2 c. >> r d-4 c. >> for clarity for rc 2 c
2:46 pm
supervisor peskin. >> yes. but we're going to leave if as the recommendation will not be implemented and okay. >> okay. >> and since there is no finding to response o respond to i'd like to make a motion we accept the proposed recommendations and strike the appropriate language and resolution as it relates to the findings and move forward with a positive recommendation. >> there's a motion so we'll strike the finding language that didn't apply to the board and as amended a there's a motion on the floor without objection with recommendation thank you supervisor president london breed for bottom lineing that one madam clerk read items 5 and
2:47 pm
6 together. >> item 5 and of a hearing and resolution on the roll call published 2016-2017 drinking save water in san francisco for a matter of good practice. >> mr. for man good news. >> david will be presenting on behalf of the grand jury it is nice to know how puc has the highest water quality. >> want and supervisors as the title indicates a positive report i have to say from the outset we the jury and the board of supervisors and the agencies almost all of us spent
2:48 pm
a lot of time talking about shortfalls and efficiency and sink holes so it is understandable that a good while the jury stood in front of you to give a rave to a city agency and i hope it shows that the san francisco public utilities commission proved successful the more we investigated the better we documented it protects lives and we found that really no record of them being commended so i hope today will recommend that and hope you'll help us mediate the last recommendation okay. we do need to disclose we didn't investigate the puc maintenance backlog their pipes or financial operations or pricing we did investigate our water there stewardship of our water
2:49 pm
resources and water safety and hazards so as most of us know give you a little bit of background the puc collects tests and monitor, treats, and distribute our water it also champions our usage and really thanks to the excellent pros practices and conservatism by the citizens the drinking water sfpuc delivers to us in adequate and high quality and save our hunters point water source is protected and pristine and the sfpuc has gone to extra length to treat it less letting us taste the snow pack from our taps this sounds like a commercial we're the jury after
2:50 pm
all and came to the inclusion of the glowing work by the sfpuc investigating the problems and briefly share them with you so our term started out in the peak of the drought before the blessings of the el nino we all of us here in san francisco felt the water insecurity we asked the obvious question how to correct the water supply with the construction here in san francisco we visited the reservoirs and saw the 90 percent level for ourselves on the supply side more that coming online from the ground water and use less water than 15 years ago this is amazing and thank to fixtures and conservatism we citizens use half the water of an average californian and finally the sfpuc has an
2:51 pm
expressive study they can handle more watt rationing we felt the sfpuc should be commended for that and little second thing that came up was obvious flint mifsh had a mass led water concentration tragedy that made the headlines in january and that caused the jury to wonder what happened in flint can happen here in san francisco our investigation revealed it couldn't in flint a water supply source was stwichd sending untreats water into in their lead distribution system and leaked the water out of the pipes and you can make matters worse the city manager lied about the problem so the first
2:52 pm
part of the problem is easy sfpuc reports to us and all there are no lead pipes in the main extra that stops a lot of the led but what about ignoring complaints and lying we visited one problem the sfpuc had in order to evaluate the response no 2015 they had a backflow incident a value was left open and untreated water was mixed request traeltd water and that was released sfpuc detected it in 17 minutes they quickly stopped the problem and then they record the problem both up to the state regularity and down to the customers and immediately recorded it had as human error immediately
2:53 pm
they tracked the slug of this untreated water throat system to resolution and then the recommended improvements were made charged to our satisfaction as well to the state finally we looked at - as far as resolving the flint problem we looked at a month of 311 complaint how they respond to their customers the short all problems were resolved so that's why we included that what happened no flifrnt can't happen here before the last problem i want to give you a sidebar it is important to know there is unmeasured lead in the sierra source and no lead in the distribution line yet we looked at the report there is measurable lead in our tap water and that's because the water has to travel through the homes and
2:54 pm
plumbing to reach us this is where that gets interesting old pipes preyears can release lead into our drinking water the sfpuc itself listed internal plumbing systems as the major source of lead in our water dpw will tell you run our tap water long enough to get the water through your own pipes and have safe wonderful water that leaves one 1r50ush9 drinking foundations you know they sit for long periods of time in the pipes and very little water comes out more in the minute the last problem we flipped around a problem that happened in milwaukee wisconsin in 1993 and
2:55 pm
investigated why it doesn't happen in san francisco so in milwaukee in the 3 in drinking water it was identified as a the cause of ills for people and caused several deaths approximately 11 mostly those with hiv or immune compromised situation so given our large hiv if it happened it would have been think worse through there was a crip to problem that was the sfpuc working with our department of health aware of it and testing crepitus before the milwaukee outbreak the levels were safe and documenting such cpi to was not regulate by the
2:56 pm
state until 1996 we found the individuals and the documentation we opener impressed and grateful so in fact, the department of health confirms that the puc has not been associated with any outbreaks of ills we agree we hope you'll agree the sfpuc should be commend we look at the quality and safety and supply salt lake city and tested the facilities and laboratory and found the sfpuc the water system stae and they're supporting services to be more than satisfactory so where we need your help with the last recommendation where we made one suggestion to the puc which - and unwarned and unremarkable. >> correct. >> so that's where we want
2:57 pm
your help right now they've not rays the price for $25 any tap tested that puts the burden on the customer for the next occupant of the building arrest the attended finding out whether or not there is pleads in their water we throughout the sfpuc was in a perfect swaegs to start tracking state tested and document and suggested with a tremendous degree of lad it is the duty create a certification program you've been to some place and tested it we're interested in hearing their response. >> i'll give them that opportunity it is relative to the rules about civil grand jury rules not within our jurisdiction but within the puc and the mayors so weasel forward
2:58 pm
a representative of the imp the opportunity to respond to that one mildly contentious issue but delighted by your report it is good to get great news we have a little bit of work we have to do relative to the blanks on pages 2 and 3 of our resolution where in colleagues, i would suggest we wholeheartedly agree with all of their 3 findings those will be finding f a-1 2 and f a 5 and commend sfpuc on its water stewardship this has resulted in the best drinking water under the country we can have that be the reason in f one and that
2:59 pm
will be reason with in f a 5 and as to f a-2 the reason should be given that california components drinking lead since 2010 or 2011, 2011 including san francisco where lead piping is rare they'll make those motions is there a representative from the puc? >> good morning edwin the director for the puc i'm here to answer any questions. >> on the one issue relative to the certification program particularly for water foundations where the response from the executive branch will not be implemented not reasonable an urban w5ir7b9d not within our jurisdiction this is what the hearings are for so the floor is yours. >> thank you the concern is that it may take
3:00 pm
a lot of effort to develop the program we're not aware of a program across the country and working with the city departments for example, working with the housing authority any department wants us to get involved i'll be happy to but in terms of the resources to have a de facto hiring freeze i'll be happy to work with at departments in the issue of the programs is one that causes the most concern. >> thank you for that response any 3, 4, 5, 6, anyone wish to comment that wants to testify on items 5 or 6 sooevenz there's a motion for amendments that i made to item number 6 without observation and i make a motion to send it to the full
3:01 pm
board with a positive recommendation. >> park merced and colleagues a position to file items 3 and 5 moved by supervisor president london breed's without objection madam clerk could you read item no. 7. >> yes. item 7 is hearing on the recently published 2015-2016 civil grand jury report on the fire inspection and the san francisco fire department. >> floor person cunningham. >> for the final report i'll be reporting on behalf of the civil grand jury i want to extend an apology for the civil grand jury for those of you who don't know we have to particular jury three hundred 66 days to generate the reports and come for the 19 of us to come a agreement on this and as part of
3:02 pm
that process it is our goal it is our desire to share our finding and discuss our finding with the department shares of the areas that we vegetated we didn't have that opportunity with this report this report was approved by the civil grand jury on the 28 of june for those of you who don't know the civil grand juries term expired on the 30th of june and the reports need to get to the judge by that date our authority expires no time for us to review our finding with those departments shares so we regret. >> that was noted in chief joanne hayes-white letter. >> give you a little bit of background the way we went into there were a number not a number of but fires of significance in
3:03 pm
the mission area that was that generated some threats about some outstanding fire code violations and that got our attention what we believe as a civil grand jury that san francisco is uniquely exposed to a catastrophic fire due to our fractured construction our 5 outlines in the immediate vicinity the age of the construction, and the fact we're in the middle of an 8 year drought that is just no signs of immediate relief in sight we're uniquely exposed and we have for a number of years a good job has been done but disaster has been
3:04 pm
avoided we want to evaluate the press that was generated there were outstanding code violations not resolved at the time of the fire with that said, we are surprised and frustrated and dbi and sf fire department the volume of intersection that were required were hampered by the staffing model the civil grand jury we're coming out of a recession we know because of our unique attitude and our compassionate services for people who are being veeshthd or listing their jobs no desire on behalf of anyone in san francisco to have them leave the city what we find is that more people are living in smaller more cramped quarters to make
3:05 pm
ends meet we believe the recession and the nature of the recession increases the fire risks ♪ particularly some neighborhood where construction is contiguous for city blocks and i want for a passage between the buildings i can't imagine this investigation took on a life of its own two departments and two housing codes and enforcement codes we find hard workers in into departments overworked and the job was understaffed we found that deficient technology and dbi and what i'll call a temp resistance in the fire department is may or may not be a realistic to expected the fire
3:06 pm
trucks assessable to them they can do their inspectors while they're in the source of their business because we believe and noted in chief joanne hayes-white statement was the prior the priority in - in their work is to fight fires we found that information about that is being accommodated was very hard to assess for the people that are actually doing the inspectors we found the translations for the people that own the property that may or may not be in violation of one of the city codes is not readily available to them and that the levels of enforcement were inadequate and discovered changes in both department in the spring tried to incorporate those into our report the best
3:07 pm
we could we vegetated those things and a lot of it was done in the in the right direction but we do want the nature of code enforcement for renters and people living in those buildings to change a little bit one of the things we talked about when you walk into a restaurant you can immediately if you're interested see the rating on one to one hundred how the restaurant does with the health department that's hard in your a renter or a patron of same restaurant that number is reflective of the health department not a reflection of the building code or the fire code inspection so in general that's where we were pleased that there are significant improvements in both departments not as a result of the report but in process while we're
3:08 pm
investigating at this time >> thank you, mr. cunningham why not go we've got dbi and fire why not start with the department of building inspection mr. hui i know you a presentation anyway your shop. >> good morning, supervisors supervisor peskin supervisor breed and supervisor yee thank you to take the opportunity to address regarding the 2017, 2015-2016 grand jury report before i start, i want to say thank you to the grand jury to look at this topic that is an important topic in my mind my job is make sure to protect
3:09 pm
the public in san francisco for the you know the safety life and property that's my you know policy number one to say that also i'd like to thank you, my staff you know from the director and especially chief housing inspector rosemary to work with my staff, of course, if you read the report they should be commend and you know we we agree to highlight from the department stand point we want to work closely with other departments like fire because you know the communication with them to make sure we work together that's why also the mayor officers 2 housing unit $2 million to help the fire
3:10 pm
department to start their program to have a better system and how to reach the public the way i see it 5 f-4 first of all, educate the public how to prepare for the fire that's why we have also put the funding quarter of a million dollars for two years to make sure they can outreach the public to educate them how to if you're in the fire there are lots of things we can know also for my staff i highly aggressively under 2012 because at this time a down turn roughly we have housing inspectors we have closed to thirty and working closely with
3:11 pm
you know chief housing inspector and make sure whatever we need to maybe increase the staff and, of course, run our shop more efficiently those are my objectives you know we're totally responsible to make sure that any single fire but sometimes you can't stop the fires people are career less but before we go further maybe i ask my chief housing inspector to come up to give a provision to you and then stay behind to answer any questions. >> thank you director huey and indeed the sharing fire protection alleviating it in all
3:12 pm
residents in the city has been and forefront and a serious mandate for the department of building inspection and housing inspection and the fire department we thank the grand jury for the amount of time they spent doing this report we realize that a lot of work went into that and over the last several years both departments have been working diligently on increasing collaboration, education, outreach, and i recall about this time last year doing a workshop with one of the fire captains on the our tv system to help with education as far as residents now, one of the things that we also did was participate and this actually began before the
3:13 pm
grand juries investigation and report was the fire safety that required collaboration before both departments before i get to that give you a little bit of background about the different roles because there's discussion about that collections i think one of the things to be noted the fire code and the housing task work individually and the fire code was originally it acted to be the preliminary code to deal with fire hazardous situations the fire code is a supplement to that with that said, partnering with the fire department and the department of other agencies and stakeholders to do a lot of preventive work so that fires don't occur and why is that we know that collaboration with the fire department that most fires start within the unit so a mechanical inspection of
3:14 pm
the common areas of the building is not that's why we have that multi ladder approach collaboration and participating in the fire safety task force 9 recommendations the filings of the stakeholder all of that so unfortunately really trying to follow me here so - we have a lot of recommends and that resulted in legislation we want to thank all the members of the committee you co-sponsored that legislation what were some of the things we looked at when we are dealing with multi family building we're not just dealing with the mechanical common areas of this a lot of things happening and firefighter hazards in the building we need to enhance the existing alarm systems and the smoke alarm
3:15 pm
systems between the building go and increasing the sounds like level so people can get out of the building in addition to that an action plan that is a big they know when a building is damaged by a fire that the property owner will need to do an assessment and give an action plan for the individuals displaced have as much information and get out of property and dbi so address those fires and the other part of this is that and as tom said our director said we have recognized that with adding additional resources to assist t fire department in addition to collaboration and sharing a lot of our documents has to do with with the issue of notice of violation sending the cases and
3:16 pm
referring the cases to the city attorney and reoccurring fire safety violations like egress that was changed immediately sent a case to the city attorney and sharing with the successes with the fire department and other agencies so and then as far ongoing efforts one of the other things we recognize is that to focus go our inspectors not only on complaint and systematic enforcement but look at particular building that are multiple level non-rated structure they maybe in a corridor that is experiencing a previous listens of fires and focused on fires elsewhere in the city in those areas it is called code enforcement we'll continue to do that and the other they know we are doing is
3:17 pm
that wanting to get data in realtime as to what the results of all those efforts have been we've been working with our it department within our division one our department and within the department of technology and with respect to that we - have made some great in roads as far as the inspectors over the last few years we've identified over thirty thousand violations that is about 57 hundred notice of violations and we have abated about thirty thousand individuals item about 10 percent of those were fire safety hazards now with respect to that we also be it further resolved bill the property owner for cost recovery the board is supportive of that
3:18 pm
we come to you once a year and record orders on the property we regularly refer cases to the city attorney i'll tell you i got off the phone with hoarding case that are dangerous as far as fire safety hazard and collaborating with those much more effective and commissioner walker in attention that was instrumental in helping us look at incidents we had people with distinguished capacity and getting more assistance from the public guardian of certain individual they can't come replying with the fire mitigation we continue to do these and also look forward to working further with the fire department and our - code enforcement outreach partners we have i understand some of them
3:19 pm
are here today and conducting workshops in sros and look at it to include those within apartment building and tom said we've increased our funding workplace thank you for allowing us to comment and we'll continue to go forward with the efforts we're making with this and continue those partnerships thank you. >> thank you, ms. and we will obviously want to hear from commissioner walker but why not switch to fire chief decould say. >> fire marshall de cossio horrible committee members thank you for the opportunity to
3:20 pm
review and discuss sfpd recommendations regarding the fire safety. >> dan if you straighten that microphone out the department has reviewed considerable detail the consideration from the civil grand jury report before we step through the barriers of importance to you we'll highlight a few considerations first, the sffd - we insure the citizens safety neither the chief for the right fire marshall was invited to participate or provide insight with regards to fire safety or plans underway optimize there are thirdly, there are many involved fire safety
3:21 pm
programs that have been strementd and implemented at this point, in fact, programs with the recommendations put forth in the sf grand jury are report my understanding that the committee members have had the opportunity to revoke the finding and the sffd response we see a couple of options to proceed we can review the presentation delivered to the sffd commission that provides a summon of conclusions along with the corinne woods sffd processes a improvements underway or we can move forward to focus immediately only areas of specific interest to the committee how would you wish to proceed. >> thank you fire marshall i've read to the matrix as i know my colleagues have they're
3:22 pm
all pretty self-respect as to which ones were implemented and not and which ones will be and there are pages of them there is clearly no action or responded that needs to be taken by the board of supervisors relative to any of the grand jury recommends they specific to dbi and fire but we have read them so if committee members have any questions for fire marshall de cossio seeing none, we'll call you if we need you. >> thank you commissioner walker. >> oh, supervisors thank you so much i would like to thank the grand jury for giving us this opportunity to review our processes and supervisors you may remember you unanimously approved the code enforcement
3:23 pm
reform our department and the all the relative departments have been working on for over 4 years i think that we are in the process our selves of working on extensive it reform if in our p t s system i'm sure you'll hear more about the updates. >> i've been waiting for 10 years. >> (laughter). >> you and me both a lot of the disconnect that happened regarding code enforcement are the issues that brought up our code reform package that supervisor wiener put forward and you unanimously supported the codes are separate our departments are separate and the city attorney who is involved in all the code enforcement efforts realized the need to center our departments
3:24 pm
work better together our department through our rp you know we're an enterprise department funded a lot of the code enforcement coordinated expansion with fire and our department the health department we mentioned the issues around hoarding that was presented another issue that effects heath issues we also included in that expanding our code enforcement outreach program to our partners out in the community that probing have better access to folks in those buildings our inspectors go out routing only notice of violations and try to correct the issues as soon as your inspectors go away the problem what reoccur having a partner in the community obtain a daily basis it helpful the communication issue between our departments and also from the community and to the community
3:25 pm
is an issue it is something our commission brought up that we and a lot of those cases are already flowing reforms to address the issues brought up by the grand juror the public didn't know about that and in some cases the other departments don't i think quietly use the internet and our website and public outreach to better communicate those advances and again, the commitment to finishing the upgrades we'll look for your support and hopefully finish 24 in a timely way the commission is commit to that and also in our recent discussion about code enforcement it was suggested that we make assess available immediately to the notice of violations that are our issued
3:26 pm
by each department to say it online with our existing online complaint system where you can track having the specific information on buildings will help our partners in the community make sure we are paying attention to all the notice of violations and curing them so to reemphasize where the commission did we support working with other departments and jones us in this computer upgrade we actually support focused funding to support code enforcement outreach effort our department has and our commission has agreed to fund that out of our fees that we collect it make sense there is a nexus there and hope to continue the effort to build up a coordinate code enforcement effort by all department and
3:27 pm
include the city attorney in that that's all i can and say from the commission stand point but i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> thank you commissioner walker for your years of efforts and maybe we should also after we hear from president francee covington from fire talk with our it world i know in a communication with fire not only our computer systems not talking with each other but the great resource and for anyone that think hadn't uses it used the property information map tool on the departments website that will show you beginning permit and planning applications will show you complaints but not hooked up to fire you can't see any fire department code enforcement i know pursuant what was read in the process of making that available open their
3:28 pm
website but in one centered place. >> commissioner covington. >> game-changer supervisors i'm francee covington satisfactory serving as president of the san francisco fire commission we're looking forward to having a continued conversations with our colleagues and dbi and i think that supervisor peskin chair peskin our suggestion that the property information map serves as a guideline for how to move forward in sharing information is brilliant. >> thank you, commissioner
3:29 pm
made my day (laughter) okay who's here on behalf of our it department. >> no questions for me; right? >> colleagues seeing none, thank you. >> please be advised the ringing of and use of cell phones, bryan reporting /* roberto. >> hello bryan from the department of technology. >> can you help those people (laughter) well, there was a specific recommendation about a particular oracle database we don't manage we help folks with the kind of rescoping the "x" sell project that is active and ongoing i believe we'll have a new project plan in
3:30 pm
mid-november. >> of what year. >> this year. >> sorry just been 10 years i was asking. >> yeah. >> so that's the main focus of where we are helping with. >> and can you help fire get they are stuff on the property information map. >> oh, yes. >> excellent. >> there is a reoccurring theme for the next 8 years of my life from the board has me. >> and the g f team can help with that. >> thank you mr. roberts. >> to the very, very patient people from the public and the department of human resources anyone want to make a public comment on item 7 please come on up. >> good morning. i'm the lead organizer for the right services
3:31 pm
a government we firmly believe that housing is a human right and the advocates to insure that folks have the ability to advocate for the right for dignified and great homes i appreciate the tennis of the review and want to encourage this process in the process at least to a final recommended include the folks that are effected and those finding before leading to the recommendations are shared with the proper departments we know that issues with the hazardous ability with the dense populated building where the heart of unoccupied buildings the longtime residents but those are consistent processes so based on those recommendations i want to list and recommend that the fire safety task force is something you sponsored moving forward we insure those finding find a way
3:32 pm
to be implemented we do look forward to the collaboration amongst the agency the fire department and others have been putting into practice funding some of the new positions and community, however, we disagree on the reason the tracking the residential complaints take along i want to say that the current practices of fire department lack clear protocol and the hazards go undecked and fail to be documented consistent i appreciate having the amazing technology but if folks are not trained to identify those it is a shame to recommend that and through we firmly believe that proper tainting training to use
3:33 pm
the code enforcement is - i'll say in our office we see close to 4 hundred cases some of them are a result of some of the departments here and some require more work on our end so to the end of bringing buildings up to code i encourage to look more in details to the recommends and so have further implementations in some of the spaces. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> good morning, supervisors i work for central center collaborative and the program he oversee a clinic in the tenderloin we have fire department the housing inspection department we focus on south of market and tenderloin i just want to highlight certain things we've
3:34 pm
been doing we working closely with the housing inspectors that are working in our jurisdictions of tenderloin and south of market we have in fact, in our own office seen over one thousand tenants that come through our doors to help with the tenant/landlord issues i also want to highlight we have been working with the fire department to host workshops in all the hotels and have done 24 workshops for tenants and for management in sro hotels i'd like to thank you for the opportunity to push for more workshops part time we'll try to workout that with the fire department they don't have the funding and we would last week to see that happen thank you.
3:35 pm
>> thank you >> next speaker, please. >> hello my name is anna work for the coming outreach program of the tenderloin clinic and want to enhance - sorry make sure that you know how for this code enforcement outreach program for our community especially in you're with a lot of the tenants that are bilingual having this program helps create the trust between the city agencies and the tenants so i want to - sorry make sure that - that the code enforcement outreach program is being enhanced and all this meeting thank you. >> thank you. >> good morning, supervisors
3:36 pm
my name is rosa i'm the program manager for the code enforcement outreach program another tenderloin housing clinic i work along with anna and though i read the report i said to highlighted some of the amazing things i think the code enforcement outreach program helps to facilitate with the dbi funding our code enforcement outreach program focused in the tenderloin and we had a bit of outreach in the south of market area has assisted tenants within those areas that are as anthema mentioned bilingual they speak mayan and cantonese and mandrin what we're able to do is provide a brazen or link between tenants within those areas to a city did not like the department of building inspection to correct negligent conditions the
3:37 pm
landlords have per traditional housing is a right in san francisco and make sure those conditions are up and make sure that tenant which we had seen in the last two years were not self-evicting themselves because of conditions in building that have been so decrept with over run of rodents or landlords not responding to tenant concerns that tenants are thinking about environmental impactism we're proud at tenderloin clinic we feel we help several tenants i want to say we helped at least 6 hundred amount number of tenant so elder and families in the tenderloin so i hope you guys
3:38 pm
that message is conveyed and communicated in a very long way thank you very much. >> sir. >> hi tom from human rights committee i kind of want to echo what a lot of the people saying human rights committee in recent a case in supervisor president london breed district an elderly woman who had been relocated spoepdz to roommate her parapet she'd burn relocated temporarily but the temporary was seven months it was really the effort of not only supervisor breed office but the human right working in conjunction with dbi and that kind of work came because of close relationship with dbi and this program and because of that the bottom line was we were able to get her back into her parapet in one week
3:39 pm
because of this relationship i want to urge you, i don't know what the board can do we've been meeting with the fire department and trying to set up a similar program within the fire department the reality we're in the ground the tenant organizers people come into our office and see 5 thousand implies a year we hear about the foreclose safety problems we need this working relationship that the fire department i can call up someone directly and say hey i have this address here's what's happening can but send an inspector to make sure that happens that's the kind of rep with dbi we really, really need to relationship with fire to help to prevent some of those fires. >> thank you anyone wish to comment here to testify on this item no. 7 seeing none, public
3:40 pm
comment is closed. i know that supervisor breed has a few words to say but i'll start with a high-level of thank you to the 2016 civil grand jury for all of your reports and professionalism and for thank you for all your hard work to move this and other subject matters forward we greatly appreciate our work for nothing. >> but you signed up for the job thank you. >> for all of that. >> $13 per day. >> you can't get here for $13 a day and wards wrashdz to this report no action this body, or needs to take with that said, i'd like to do this is within the purview of the san francisco government audit & oversight
3:41 pm
committee to bring this matter back we do it the continuity the civil grand jury with continuity reports we'll continue to revisit this issue i appreciate the fact that both departments are taken to seriously and appreciate the work the respect commission and mr. hui get that done. >> supervisor president london breed and thank you to again to the civil grand jury you know the people who usually go through the process to be part of the civil grand jury and spend countless hours with the research and work it is a thank also job you care about the city and care about green house back i want to letting you know, we appreciate the time and work in preps those amazing reports it is great to shine a light on
3:42 pm
things we'll talk about they board of supervisors maybe during biscuit season. >> oufrments i know get 80 getting to a point we make the covets changes to make sure that government is working more efficiently for the people it intends to serve those reports go a long way in the right direction so thank you. i want to ask specific questions because from my perspective i want to fix it and i want to fix it because it shouldn't be that you, you this someone has to reach out to the board of supervisors or to their supervisor to deal with that situation that tommy mentioned it was horrible to have that person not having an advocate to help to fascist the process she would be homeless this is a frustration that so 34 people that don't know who to crack are
3:43 pm
experiencing all over our city i want 24 process to work better and heard from one of the speakers specifically the responses the fire department was they don't have the funding and i guess i understand to understand if this is true or not true what is the issue with the departments budget in terms of being a little bit more responsive with those situations those fire code violations and what's happening base especially because preservation is important so we don't get to a point where things happen in the first time we all want to avoid getting to that point clearly in the first place i want to
3:44 pm
understand the fire departments role and not having sufficient funding to be more responsive is true and if that's the case you know where do we go from hey here and highway to fix it. >> mr. fire marshall de cossio. >> yes. thank you. >> with regards to staffing and funding first of all, i'd like to thank the building department for they're supporting us with two new positions community each. >> that's my next question with the competence and funding at dbi is it possible to fined the positions necessary and thank you very much for dbi for that support. >> with two positions a new fire investor and inspector to go to neighborhood and address
3:45 pm
all fire safety concerns as far as contact they'll be the point for the community to reach out and other positions four new inspector positions and create a fire complaint section what we've done in the past they used to be sent out to the different districts multiple district throughout the city their duties for full inspectors a hoist of things if that fire complaints but we created a new section and consolidate all the complaint to be more efficient and addressing the these complaints. >> which did this start is. >> last week the additional positions and again, this process has been in the works for quite a few of the i permanent was a part of fire task force the interagency task force i sought concerns of the
3:46 pm
public and at this point we start to plan that with allocating the resources to the sections and started out with a reassigning the champion and concluded that reallocation so, now a champion, lieutenant and 6 inspectors that address all fire complaints. >> okay. the other question i wanted to ask something he most recently experienced with an individual in my district who is a hoarder and had a fire and as a result i think what bogged me the most about the situation there was a fire the fire department came and put out the fire and there was really no connection or no follow-up to services for this particular individual in fact, the reason
3:47 pm
he got involved several neighbors of this year person had reached out to me and had a fire the door was broken i mean but we got services you know after my office was made aware of the situation, we were able to work with you know the different departments human resources and all of these things to get him services we discovered his water was cut off i don't think so where the disconnect was you're talking about a senior living without water clearly has issues and needs support and i guess from my perspective he know not as if we talk about someone in their personal home you would be able to prevent or know theirs issues without
3:48 pm
getting involved i guess i didn't understand why the department after they put out the fire that there were no signs to see there was a need for social services or for support or dbi even or just - i'm trying to understand after the situation occurred you know what is your role to connect individuals that we know are clearly in trouble to the resources they need to get help. >> i think part of this is training and reinforcing the idea we're a department and a process to refer those issues to protective services and dbi the tools are there i think about reinforcing and meg to the field and the issues to have an avenue
3:49 pm
to reviewer to other auditions think that is mainly training the tools are there. >> i guess i see a bit of a disconnect and wanting to make sure that we are doing what we can to be supportive and you are doing what you can to make sure that is not just about, of course, a role that 9 department plays responding to all the 9-1-1 emergencies and dealing with challenging situations i know so many people appreciate but then there are other layers as a fire marshall what you deal with in general with occupancy and other challenges with the buildings i'm just concerned that from my perspective not sure of the what the policies are with the
3:50 pm
department and how those policies actually serve the public as it relates to preservation in terms of the civil grand jury report after something occurs and is there a disconnect and something we can do to support you know moving the in the right direction to. >> i'll bring this forward to the deputy chief. >> and to mention the department of building inspection is it polk what you've been provided is sufficient or is there a need for additional resources because clearly i know the opportunity exists from the funding is available and dbi can use funding for this particular purpose i think this is really
3:51 pm
you know a great opportunity to try to make sure we have the appropriate capacity to support the department in this regard. >> we're rolling out programs teammate with the fire complaints in the community outreach at this time no need for additional resources but down the road we may this is in any to us we are rolling this out i think from what i sit we're good right now with the two new programs. >> okay. thank you. >> thank you fire marshall de cossio supervisor yee. >> just want to make a general comment i want to thank the grand jury for this year i'd be able to read several years of report from the grand juror efforts and we have to say this this year is the best in terms of all the ones i've seen it is useful
3:52 pm
and it's been seem to have the ability to move some of the departments more than in the past so i want to congratulate actually, the juries that were working on the reports. >> thank you supervisor yee so with that, why not have a motion to file item no. 7 made by supervisor yee without objection thank you, again one and all and let's see return to item 2 thank you for your patience i'm sorry i forgot your name i know you represent the department of human resources. >> thank you. i'm the employee relations director and i am fairly new to my position i can assure you i'll have answers to our questions when you ask them. >> it's all good. >> let me i think i've
3:53 pm
gathered the information requested and let me address each item individually you asked me about the recreation facility assistance on page thirty of the ordinance and this is a new classification it is being created and worked in conjunction with the seiu this is intend to provide permanent staffing for our recreation facility in the past we used primarily temporary staffing and this is a new position to provide ongoing permanent staffing you asked about the physician claefgs. >> by the way, i'm not trying to be funny but do we really have a city patio invite.
3:54 pm
>> two city moa patianistoa p city pianist. >> now they're represented in bargaining unit the seiu. >> okay moving forward. >> supervisor breed wants to know where they play and i can get you their schedule i'm meeting with them this afternoon. >> i say next question, i noted on page 20 with the physician classifications if so being eliminated this sclaefgs is being eliminated because we no longer use it we have been using the physician specialist
3:55 pm
and the senior physician specialist classifications this is being eliminated the next question owe not on page 15 the senior examiner this. >> special examiner and i'm sorry special examiner this classifications used to be unrep and this classification you asked me what it does that support the hiring examines the proctor hiring examines and fluctuate as we are at the east bay and flow of hiring asked by the about the classification an page 11 it is a classification that is used a senior level in the planner series and the most
3:56 pm
complex position mr. 9 peep in the classification there is 2 in the planning department, two in mta and 3 at the that concludes my report. and one at the airport. >> okay. >> and we looked at the history it been used consistently not earmarked to be eliminated so. >> i'll have to go through my records and see why i have this thought i'll put that on the budget analyst. >> okay. >> there are other series of planners transportation, planners and others it may be that maybe a transportation planner because i know that goes to level 4. >> that was definitely - those planners 5 we'll get to the bottom of it. >> the next question and that i had noted from you was about the program manager an economic department on page 7 a good item
3:57 pm

4:31 pm
we are joined by supervisor yee so >> all right. through the chair i know this is just a resolution to submit an application so. >> it is. >> yes. i'm happy to motion i make a motion to send it to the full board with a positive recommendation. >> okay motion by supervisor tang and seconded by supervisor cowen and take it without objection. >> thank you very much. >> thanks madam clerk item 2. >> resolution retroactively the shefrz to enter into a 3 month contract with global tel* link for telephone services to reduce the phone calls to modify the paid sheriff's this will result in anticipate revenue to the cadet welfare fund of $34,000 per month. >> thank you very much i saw sheriff vicki hennessey so whoever wants to do a good
4:32 pm
morning. i'm christopher the cfo for the sheriff's started last week and here to talk about the fourteenth amendment for telephone services been through a second amendment to the contract was just the cost of calls by about 38 percent and this fourth amendment resolution a call by 4 percent and also sets up for a new contract to be signed in late 2016 that will maintain the current rates which are 20 which are 34 percent less than what we were this proposed contract establishes the reduced rates and eliminates surcharges and reduces the cost of an average call by 34 this is 68 percent of our toll call volumes
4:33 pm
and reduces the regional in state calls by 41 percent that's another 24 percent of our call volumes the fcc has recently taken action this amendment shows the sheriff's department in support of reform for calling rates and as i mentioned it lowers the in state rates that is 92 percent of volume the announcements the third amendment we were operating up in june the cost of an average local calls $2 plus that come down to $1.54 for the regional interlot calls the average was 37 now, $1.98 and
4:34 pm
likewise our fourth street sets the interstate rates what is blow on this slide so for interstate collect calls caps at 250 our rates $1.10 and interstate prepaid fcc rate is one 10 and now, $1 this next slide shows quite a bit of data we've get rid of the surcharges and now have a permanent rate which reduces the cost of average calls and with lower costs we have increased volumes it allows people to be able to connect their loved ones with less cost and as a result of increased
4:35 pm
volume we executive the less cost the budget analyst has reflected that. >> thank you very much colleagues, any questions. >> supervisor tang. >> thank you i don't know if this came up during another contract amendment previously but i know that some other supervisors had spoken to their concerns about charging the cadets for calls i wonder if you can speak to that what the fcc released in terms of calling reform. >> there are a couple series sheriff vicki hennessey i think there are different kinds of calls made when cadets are arrested they have a free phone number and calling rates historically have been very high pause of the private destroy and we get a percentage that that comes into our use for the cadet
4:36 pm
program but and the fcc has traditionally as recently begun lowering it we're lower than any other county in the areas in terms of our phone calls and cadets we have credentially reduced those we need an infusion into the general fund money if we want to see this money recovered i want to talk about we're in the process of doing working on providing free phone numbers to parents to their children while they're no our custody through our one child program we have that and provide calls also cadets pro per get a number of free phone numbers provided through the court through are different things that happen. >> and then on average i don't know if you have this kind of data but i guess how often are
4:37 pm
calls made every year and . >> we have aggregate numbers but really what happens generally is cadets when in their out of their cells are allowed to use the phones at most of fats only the old sterile jail we don't have the ability and cadets are limited to 15 minutes each pause of the number of people so at the get 1 minutes and if more time they get back in line with another 15 minutes and sometimes there's none using the phones they can use the phone as much as and want. >> supervisor yee. >> i'm glad we're changing the rates because we've heard about the rate and how it is actually
4:38 pm
stopping inmates from making calls i'm glad we're reducing that i think you answered any question that is since we were going to get fewer revenues from this it would impact somewhere and the answer you need more general funds to offset the impact. >> at some point if the - we move to continue to reduce calls yes, we'll be looking at that we're okay now we budgeted for this we knew we know doing this in june so we - so i believe that it is not a big problem but if we reduce it further we'll are look at it in terms of supplementing. >> what's the impact less revenues for the general
4:39 pm
programming? >> yeah. we're getting one half a million dollars annually from this program. >> thanks. >> it goes into our inmate welfare fund can only be used for the penalty code. >> my preference is going into this direction where inmates actually can make phone numbers for less and not just have these inmates making phone calls offset. >> i understand i understand the desire to continue to move downward in the costs i understand that that's why when we came in january i started to look at it and made the decision to continue to reduce as we go
4:40 pm
along. >> appreciate it. >> thank you. >> okay. thank you sheriff. >> supervisor katie tang. >> one more question so this will be a month long contract or - i couldn't tell based on the document. >> it was month to month we were waiting for additional fcc rulings so we wait until we chiu knew what overseeing were and began this in june of this year we reduced the ratesthanasia then so at the rates that were asking for in the coming contract i believe this is are a 3 year contract to are you new a 3 year extract. >> i'm going to let christen talk. >> the item before you to approve the fourth amendment on a month to month it will be riding with that so we get the new contract in question expect to be signed by the ends of this year we'll be coming back with a new contract to reflect the same
4:41 pm
rates. >> okay. great. thank you. >> thank you. >> okay. colleagues any questions or comments okay move on to public comment anyone wish to comment on item number 2 seeing none, public comment is closed. >> i'll make a motion to pass this out of the committee with a positive recommendation to the full board. >> motion by supervisor yee and seconded by supervisor tang without objection madam clerk call item 3. >> resolution approving the second amendment to the revenue agreements for the automatic public toilet and public kiosk program for a term of august 2nd, 1994, through october 2017. >> okay thanks we have dph here to speak. >> good morning julia from public health department we are asking for an approval the second amendment that expends the term to one year and have a few other kind of technical

women, some of them older, some of them look just like me like my age and a lot of them work nanny jobs, child care jobs, retail jobs. i don't know, it seems kind of like a reminder that you are kind of lucky to be where you are, i guess. just when you haven't gone so far at all. i want them to go on maybe go on an interview that's more challenging that they think that they can't get that job. you know, just to kind of challenge and surprise themselves when they get that job and feel better. >> there had been women practicing law for many years, but there were so few of them that a lot of the issues hadn't
4:48 pm
really come into play and some of them worked out and some are still being resolved like equal pay and women in lawfirms and making sure women get fair assignments and in the decision making and working with law firms. i consider myself more of a beneficiary of all the women that fought really difficult battles along the way. >> >>
