tv   Building Inspection Commission 111616  SFGTV  November 25, 2016 10:15am-11:01am PST

10:15 am
building inspection and before you is october 2016 financial report. it provides data on expenditures and receive news from jm twnt 16 through october 2016 and i'll go over a few highlights. for revenues remain strong. we collected about $21 million in revenue and see that on page 1. page 2 you see that while revenues remain strong they are lower than they were compared to the same time last year and that is to be expected. last year in fiscal year 15-16 that was the highest collection in the department. overall, reserve news from last year to this year have gone down about $2.7 million. if you look at innext table it shows the number of issue permits and talked about this before and you can see that both evaluation has gone down about 37 percent and also
10:16 am
we are also seeing fewer number of permits issued. if you look that first table you see the largest decrease in the number of high value permits want down by about 19 percent. but overall revenues are still fine. we expect to meet our budget or exceed the revenue budget but just compare to last year you see things going down and anticipated that. on the expenditure side we can continue to increase compared to year over year. you will see we are about 8 percent this year and that is primarily because salaries have gone up more this year than last year and that is reflected in the last meeting of gearing up and hiring. so, overall if you look at the first page again, you see the projected revenue is at budget and the reezten is there is because it is too early to make real adjustments
10:17 am
and so just projecting that budget but as we get to the 6 month mark we'll look at if we see trends and information and try to make actual projections. i'll happy to answer question. >> seeing none. thank you. >> thank you. >> item 9, b, update on propoz said or recently enacted state or local legislation. >> good morning. bill strom, legislative and public affairs. i call attention to a few of the items that i submitted in your packet. the fire safety requirements that supervisor campos and others supported and took effect after labor day, we actually had a first working group meeting with some folks in the mayor's office about a week ago. essentially still working out data assistance
10:18 am
with the fire department so we can improve transparency and make it a bit easier for people to track these types of investigations following a fire and/or when citizens call to alert us to a possible fire hazard so that our cardination efforts are improved. i would say that is moving forward. we also have sfr visor farrell and peskin making adu city wide. you are probably aware the governor also signed just recently a state law that essentially facilitates and encourages owners to do adu's by waving the utility cost for connections. that does save substantial amounts of dollars
10:19 am
so whether or not this actually leads to more adu permits, we'll have to wait and see. as of right now dbi issued 29 of those permits, we had about 134 applications filed. there are still 116 of them under review at planning and another 17 under review at the fire department. so, we are trying to coordinate with planning to see what some of the review issues might be on adu. they continue to be a potential source for more affordable housing, but i would say the process is still relatively slow. i think mentioned earlier during the president announcement the triannual codes have been passed. the board passed that unanimously on consent yesterday. we made
10:20 am
arrangements with the mayors office to try to obtain that signature soon in the next day or two so will make our january 1 deadline and as thez president said we owe a lot of thanks to mr. means and the technical services staff who keep that on track. i guess the final thing i'll mention is i think i mentioned supervisor peskin proposed a tall building advisory committee and expect that to come to the land use committee and possibly also to the budget committee possibly around thanksgiving or immediately there after. there are responsibilities dbi will be involved in relative to that and working with the supervisor and mayor prfs office on those. with that, happy to take any

10:43 am
was erected near what is today is known as port mouth square in 1843. the town was growing very quickly, and was renamed san francisco on january 30th 1847. the california gold rush increased our population over night, from 1,000 people in 1848, to 25,000 by december 1849. in february of 1849, the citizens of what was known as the district of san francisco erected a legislative assembly. which they empowered to make laws not in conflict with the constitution of the united states nor the common laws thereof. today, is about recognizing the legislative chamber and all of the actions that took place here to help guide and build this city. so the settlers and the immigrants and the visitors and business owners and employees
10:44 am
and residents, and the non-profits and the organizations and associations, the city employees, and many others can know the responsibilities and the practices to conduct their personal or private business. whether this city was called atunamatento, the council or the free holders or the board of supervisors there is no doubt since 1849 to this very day, our collective commitment to service has led to the strength of our board of supervisors. to the city of san francisco and to the betterment of the neighbors, i welcome you all to the chamber to a special meeting where a type of lifetime capsule will be presented to you today. so let's get started, get ready to go back to another time exactly five years after the
10:45 am
1906 earthquake. madam clerk. and madam president that was five days after the 1906 earthquake. >> thank you. >> once the board of supervisors could finally meet, this was the first entry into the journal of proceedings by the clerk of the board, mr. george keen on monday, april, 23, 1906. on the 18th day of april, 1906, about the hour of 5:15 a.m., san francisco was visited by an earthquake of unusually severe magnitude, many structures collapsed and were dismanled and every business throughout the city was injured to a greater or less degree. not only did the earthquake shock, injure or destroy many buildings and streets and suers, but the water and gas mains were broken and the electric light service dismantled thus, shutting off the water and the light supply, the fires started in several sections of the city and being without water, the fire department was utterly unable to check the flames. the united states troops were
10:46 am
called out to aid the fire and police departments and dynamiting was resorted to, which continued for three days, two-thirds of the city was entirely consumed, and the general boundaries of the devastation and the burned section of the city included the businesses and the most densely populated precedent sections of the city. the principal buildings, city hall, and the hall of justice were destroyed with their contents. great distress prevails among the homeless and the afflicted who are obliged to camp on the hills and in the streets and the parks until their fellow citizens can afford the shelter. aid is most againly provided by our nation, our country men and our friends throughout the united states, and it is hoped that within a short time the suffering and misery of the sick and the homeless will be relieved, the usual meeting place of the board of supervisors namely the chamber on the second floor in the san francisco city hall has been
10:47 am
dismantled by the earthquake and the devastation by the fire. the purpose of this is necessarily brief article is to enable a proper understanding of the subsequent actions of the board of supervisors, the legislative branch and to explain the tra order conditions that now preveal, george b. keen the clerk of the board and the city of san francisco. >> thank you madam clerk, it was an extraordinary time, but as a city we collectively rose to the occasion. in the ten years that followed along with the state delegation and federal partners, the board of supervisors guided the rebuild of the city from the ground up, leveraging the ability for the bonds, our true and civic pride, cohen will now recite some of the activities. >> thank you, good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. it was a difficult time for many reasons. the city was faced with figuring
10:48 am
out the basic san tarry conditions as earlier ships that came into port were over run with rats and brought the plague epidemic to san francisco. to come mri indicate matters, there were several grass scanned dells that rock the city that brought the general mistrust of the city officials, with the prosecution of the mayor schmid and ruth and certain public utility officials on extortion and bribery charges. so it is no surprise that in 1909, the voters of san francisco turned down an $8 million bond to rebuild city hall. it was not until 1911 that the residents were finally invigorated when they elected mayor sunny jim rolf to be mayor. and it was his promise to rebuild a splended city hall and
10:49 am
a new civic center area. after the earthquake destroyed the board's legislative chambers, the board of supervisors meetings were held at several temporary sites, and in 1911, 1231, market street, became the official temporary city hall during the creation of the plans and the construction to rebuild city hall and the city. in 1912, the voters finally approved the issuance of a $8 bond for the new city hall and a civic center. a design competition began for the best design despite the fact that there were limited architects registered in office design in california. in 1912, the winning design was awarded to the arther brown firm of bake well and brown, and in 1913, the ground breaking commenced for the new city hall,
10:50 am
city hall was newly opened on february, 20th, 1915. and was dedicated to coincide with the panama pacific international ex-poe tigs, occurring in the city. but the boards legislative chambers would not be finished for another year. in part due to its ornate and stunning workmanship. finally, on october, 9th, 1916, the meeting of the board of supervisors was held in the legislative chamber, thank you, madam president. >> thank you, supervisor cohen. >> thank you. you can clap, but she did not write it. on the call of the roll for the inmeeting the follow 18 members were noted present, supervisors brandon dz., gallagher, hayden
10:51 am
hilmer, hox, hanes, cordic. >> lahaney. >> mclaern. nelson, nolan, power, sir, walsh, welch, and wolf. we felt that it was important that their words spoken on that day be reinstated by our current board members as they are in this chamber. the following excerpts were taken from the journal of proceedings for monday, october 9th, 1916, at 2:00 p.m. for that inaugural day. the first individual to present on that day was the honorable mayor junior, as spoken by the honorable mayor lee. mayor lee? >> thank you, madam president. we meet in these beautiful chambers for the first time urpd
10:52 am
the most inspiring circumstances. this city hall and civic center and these chambers excelled in any part of the world which are the housed for many years to come for the board of supervisors of this city and county. in 1912, was a near dream, a vision, in the minds of those who today are with us celebrating the realization of that dream. today, we are gathered in these new legislative chambers, which with its remarkable simplicity, and wonderfully carved walls and ceilings, reflect the dignity and the splendor of this great city. there is an inspiration about it, that should impel us to the higher effort and nobler things.
10:53 am
i greet you, i welcome you distinguished guests, former city officials, supervisors, and fellow citizens, to this beautiful building, which is yours and which for many years to come shall be the seat of your city's government. thank you madam president. >> thank you, mr. mayor. >> and now, the honorable united states senator diane as originally presented by the honorable united states senator james d. felan. >> thanks very much, madam president, i once again state these are the words of a former supervisor and united states senator. for the five years i had the honor to preside over the board of supervisors. i cannot recall any greater
10:54 am
pleasure and safety than the work in which we were engaged. i see here today some of the men mr.'s payot, murdock, booth and hox who served with me at that time. in those formative days of the new charter, we had many questions as to the interpretation of that instrument. public work was delayed until the courts had fixed upon the meeting and legality of the provisions. you who have succeeded to these positions, have smoother sailing because now, it has been fully interpreted. our sessions, although stormy at times, they were conducted in a d dignifieed. and the board of supervisors may be compared to the congress of
10:55 am
the united states, except there the work is practically done in committees and the sessions are carried out in a manner. and there is a lack of order, and decorum, members read newspapers and smoke, while the congress is in session. and it is being addressed by a member. but in the board of supervisors, the work was done in largely, by largely the board itself. therefore, more attention is shown, more decorum and order is required. than in the tribunal of the united states. this is as it should be. for here you deal with the daily lives of the people. with matters intimately connected with their daily lives. therefore, my service here was of greater importance to me. than as a member of the congress. for which it served as a plendid
10:56 am
preparation. the greeks had, saying, to be beautiful we should live among the objects of beauty. children should not be allowed to grow up among the images of evil. this beautiful dome which surrounds these chambers shall inspire our people for ages to come. and shall typify the unity of this community. i was a member of the old city hall commission. and we put the last patches on the work we who knew the old building with the dark corridors and the poor ventation, may well marvel at the tremendous progress that has been made in a few years in the science of architecture and building construction. when we contemplate the beauty of this structure and the wonderful arrangements for the light and ventation, which have been afforded in its
10:57 am
construction. my service as a public official of this city will always be cherished. as the most satisfactory experience of my life. thank you, madam president. >> thank you, senator. and now, supervisor david campos as originally presented by supervisor edward wolf. thank you madam president. you have done me great honor mr. mayor. and you have taken me wholy by surprise. i appreciate the honor, and i am greatly inspired by the beauty of these surroundings. and i am delighted that senator feland and the former supervisors are present. i remember in 1896, when senator feland ran for mayor of the city. and we had partisan politics at that time, and recall that the
10:58 am
word pecurliar circumstances as a republican impressed me that it was my duty to help mr. feland to that office which he graced and honored. we made no mistake then, and we have made no mistake now, that we have elevated him to the senate of the united states. we owe a great deal of debt to the former supervisors who so faithfully carried out their trust. if we can do so as well, we will deserve the praise and the economics, which are theirs today, i can say to you, mayor rolf who made such a brilliant record in your first and in this, your second term. we could indeed be inspired to do those things, which will win for us our own self-respect and the respect of the people of the city and county of san francisco.
10:59 am
i have dedicated myself to the course and when the times comes to do something for san francisco, while i am in this position. and i hope to equip myself as well as the men and women, who are here today. and in honor of the occasion. and senator feland has truly said that our work is important work. it effects the very homes and fire sides of our people. let us, therefore, conduct our proceedings with dignity, and let's maintain peace and order of this great community, and thank you madam president, and i want to make sure that his name is said today, because i would not be here and so many of us would not be here without him, we are thinking of you harvey milk. >> thank you. thank you, supervisor campos. >> and now, supervisor katie tang as originally presented by supervisor ralph. thank you, madam president. san francisco can justly feel proud of the beautiful chamber
11:00 am
and of all of the civic center, and san francisco can justly feel proud of all of the former members of this board who had a hand in the boz issue and are responsible for initiating the work. i see here today, the building committee which had the work of laying out the civic center, i want to say to the former supervisor, bancroft who is the chairman of that committee, and to him, is the credit of the 3 and one and a half million dollars, and due to the energy and the expert knowledge of the real estate values these were made, economy and promptly, the supervisor was a member of the committee and took as much interest as if it was his own home. >> thank you, supervisor tang and now, supervisor john avalos as presented by william h. mccarthy. >> thank you, madam president, i was a member of the former finance committee and our confidence in the member of the committee, of that committee was su
