of the mta. "i am seriously concerned about the lack of background checks performed on major construction contractors and opaque process to select scooter pilot permit recipients," and wrote, "muni must be more dependable. the budget grew by $60 million last year. so i expect that conditions will improve in the very near term future." >> we appreciate the focus on the sfmta and we're going to redouble our efforts to insure we're improving service for thousands of riders every single day on muni. >> reporter: paul rose is the spokesman for the sfmta. >> we look forward to continuing to work with the mayor's office. she has been a great champion as a supervisor for transportation and transit issues over the years. >> reporter: the recipient of the letter, ed reesekin reports to the mta board and in a statement today the chairwoman of the board, sheryl brinkmann, wrote in part, "i am confident that the sfmta can get back to track after a difficult summer.
6:01 pm
mr. reesekin and his leadership team have made great gains in efficiency and safety in the past years." >> this is something that we're committed to focusing on. >> reporter: now the mayor of san francisco does appoint all of the members to that sfmta board of directors. they serve in these four year staggered terms. so that's one way the mayor could put pressure on the organization. the other, of course, is through the budget process which begins again in the spring of 2019. melissa caen, kpix5. you don't have to look hard to find fare cheats on b.a.r.t. in fact, people jumping the gates cost b.a.r.t. millions each year. kpix5's phil matier is live at the embarcadero station with one possible solution. phil? >> reporter: that's right. b.a.r.t. needs to come up with some solutions because not only do they have a fare gate problem, they've got a problem with what happens after they jump the fare gate and that's what b.a.r.t. has to deal with as well. let's take a look. sometimes they climb over the
6:02 pm
fare gates. sometimes they just walk on through without a care. and as the b.a.r.t. director showed us today, all it takes is a little push. while an alarm went off, the nearest b.a.r.t. agent was on the other side of the station and didn't even notice he got the push. >> this is a station with six entrances and two station agents. >> reporter: that's why b.a.r.t. is looking at installing new tougher fare gates, something new york has already done. >> it's absolutely what we need to do. >> reporter: b.a.r.t. hopping is costing the cash strapped system upwards of $25 million a year in lost revenue, but the blatant fare evasion and the people it brings into the stations is also taking a bill toll on the system's safety image -- big toll on the system's safety image. concerns rose to a new level in the wake of the fatal slashing of 18-year-old nia williamslowh caught fare jumping a few days earlier, a tragedy williams' family's lawyers say could have
6:03 pm
been prevented with stricter enforcement. >> you have to nip it in the bud at the turnstiles. if b.a.r.t. had stopped the criminal fare evaders, nia would be alive. >> there's a public perception there's increased crime. so we need to really address this in multiple ways, get more officers out there, fix the b.a.r.t. hopping problem, clean up the stations, find somewhere for the homeless to be, not on our trains and that's what we're doing. >> reporter: but the new gates will cost upwards of 150 to $200 million. >> that's just an estimate. it's extremely expensive. >> reporter: the computer line is also looking into hi-tech weapon scanners, putting more cops on patrol and installing higher barriers around the turnstiles. >> it used to come to here. we're making it taller. >> reporter: even with the barriers people find a way around them or through them whether it's b.a.r.t. or muni or any other system, which is what we saw repeatedly today. >> that unfortunately doesn't surprise me. >> reporter: here's another example of what b.a.r.t.'s doing in the interim. this barrier used to go up to
6:04 pm
here. they've added on this sort of fencing wire so that you can't jump over as easily, but as we've seen, where there's a will there's usually a way. >> phil, the obvious question is what's the next step here in this process? >> reporter: well, the next step will be more of these around and they're going to take a study to see exactly how much it's cost and they want to take a survey of the board, but i got to tell you i've talked to a couple board members and they're all on board with this idea, the idea being if you can keep the trouble out, there's less trouble you have to deal with once you're in. in san francisco, phil matier. back to you guys. a new debate over whether private shut oulod in bus only san francisco. the issue is whether to allow private buses in special lanes proposed for gary boulevard between market and stanyon street. the issue will be voted on tomorrow. the project was originally proposed to speed up muni service along crowded gary
6:05 pm
boulevard. private shuttles are allowed on other bus only lanes in the city already. a number of top prosecutors in the state will gather tomorrow to announce an update in the golden state killer case. contra costa county district attorney diana becton will be there, also. she's the only d.a. attending who did not have a homicide linked to the golden state killer. it's speculated tomorrow's developments could include the filing of additional charges against suspect joseph deangelo. he currently faces 13 murder counts in multiple counties. we are learning more about how a utah firefighter died in california's massive mendocino complex fire. matt burchett was killed a week ago today. a preliminary report says he died from falling tree debris after a large air tanker completed a retardant drop. the report calls for an immediate corrective action saying firefighters must stay clear of areas with overhead hazards during those drops. l in utah.
6:06 pm
old husband meanwhile some 2,000 turned out today for burchett's funeral in utah. the 42-year-old husband and father was remembered by colleagues for his wit devoti t his brother who was also a firefighter talked about how they were inseparable as kids. >> as kids we always made pacts, i'll trade you this for that. i'll do this for that. my favorite pact was all right, if we get caught, you take the blame if the cops get us. i'll take the blame if mom and dad get us. year old son griffin. >> burchett was a 20 year veteran of firefighting. he leaves behind his wife heather and 7-year-old son griffin. new at 6:00 a big name developer wants to expand his popular sushi restaurant in the south bay, but one woman is trying to block that plan. the existing nobu restaurant is inside a hotel on hamilton avenue in downtown palo alto.
6:07 pm
the proposed expansion would happen in an adjacent building. kpix5's maria medina on a fight that goes before city council tonight. maria? >> reporter: well, if you've ever been to downtown palo alto, you know parking is a problem and that's why one woman has an issue with this project, but some wonder if there's more to it than that. it's a battle between one developer and another. >> the primary issue is parking. >> reporter: at the center of the debate, three parking spaces inside this garage, but let's back up a bit. last year the pricey popular sushi restaurant nobu inside the epiphany hotel owned by tech titan larry ellison submitted plans to the city to expand taking over a shuttered floral shop next-door. they got the okay from the city including getting rid of those three parking spaces as long as they paid $71,000 a space into a city fund to put into a future parking garage. >> she doesn't agree with the
6:08 pm
findings. >> reporter: but another developer elizabeth wong is trying to stop the project saying getting rid of those parking spaces sets a dangerous precedent for the elimination of much needed parking spaces throughout the downtown. >> she calls it special treatment. is it special treatment? >> there's no special treatment. >> reporter: in fact, city leaders say anyone who takes over the property would be required to do the same because the parking spaces aren't up to code and would need to be expanded, but the alley next to the spaces makes it a challenge. >> any redevelopment of that building whether it was owned by anybody would have some challenges with providing parking on that location. >> reporter: but some wonder if this is more than just about parking. elizabeth wong tried to buy the property several years ago, but the deal fell through and it was sold to ellison. wong is now suing for breach of contract and the city is now in the middle. and wong says she's not the only how one peoples this way.
6:09 pm
she's hoping that city council actually delays their decision tonight so that the public can weigh in. live in palo alto, maria medina, kpix5 news. a battle over a peninsula beer house now spilling over into legal action. the owner of the mountain view business on castro street is taking his landlord to court accusing her of trying to force him out to open her own restaurant. the landlord denies that saying she plans a four-story office and retail building on the site. the beer house owner is demanding he be allowed to stay while the new project is in the works. a fight over stadium lights, bay area high school teams want them, why some neighbors say no thanks. >> does this sound strange? plans for a new bay area park include chopping down some old trees. we'll explain. >> surfing has always had a special place in california's heart. now the sport is part of california law.
6:10 pm
6:11 pm
6:12 pm
of "friday night lights". they're fighting a proposal to add stadium lights to the some neighbors near mountain view high school don't want any part of friday night lights. they're fighting a proposal to add stadium lights to the football field. kpix5's kiet do on why they want to keep that field in the dark. >> reporter: yeah. we're live here at mountain view high school. this campus along with los
6:13 pm
altos high school, these are the only two schools in the entire south bay that still do not have stadium lights. so last week the school board voted to move forward to study the issue making it the first time that they have actually taken up this issue and the furthest they have ever gotten and getting close to installing these lights. right now sports teams practice as long as there's daylight. it's workable in the spring and fall, but come wintertime football, soccer, lacrosse, field hockey, track and yes, the band literally get left in the dark. what's more, student population has boomed the past few years. so the president of the local booster club brett chiller said they've been pushing for years and it's no longer a want but a need. >> there's more sports and activities going on and we've run out of space. there's nowhere to go and so being able to get more access and use of the stadium even for a few hours a day is a big deal now. >> reporter: superintendent jeff harding says there was a three hour school board meeting last week to kick off the issue. the thing is the schools are
6:14 pm
nestled right inside the neighborhoods where homes butt up against the fields. it's early in the process, but they're looking at directional l.e.d. style lights similar to these that would reduce light spillage into the surrounding neighborhood and there was also discussion of limiting use of the p.a. system. by law the school district does not have to get permission from anyone to add lights. why bother being a good neighbor? >> well, this is a tight knit community. we're in this together with our neighbors. we want to maintain that relationship. it's a symbiotic kind of relationship that we have with our neighbors. we want to keep it that way. >> but things have changed a great deal. >> reporter: rosemary wattam has lived at her home 200 yards away from los altos high the past 38 years. she's had to deal with students speeding and parking in her neighborhood, but she said living with the sound from the p.a. has been a nightmare. >> it started getting oppressive. it was no longer pleasant
6:15 pm
background noise. it was noxious noise. >> reporter: so last week's meeting of the first one in a year's long process. we are very early in the process right now. the next step is to form a task force, get members from the community to try to find some middle ground in all this as they try to decide whether or not they're going to bring stadium lights here to the two high schools. in mountain view, kiet do, kpix5. a san bruno neighborhood is happy to hear a new park is coming to their block, but they're puzzled, even angry over one part of the city's redevelopment plan. kpix5's john ramos explains. >> reporter: for as long as anyone can remember, this lot at florida and taylor avenues in san bruno had a large, old abandoned house on it. neighbors say it got to be an eyesore. >> it was very prehistoric looking and it was graffitid on. junk was thrown in there. >> reporter: the city took possession of the property and plans to build a new park. so far the only thing that looks parklike here are the two trees at the back of the lot.
6:16 pm
that's ironic because one landscaping plan calls for the two trees to be chopped down. >> i didn't understand why they would have to knock down some heritage trees to build a park when you typically go to parks to enjoy the shade of a tree. >> yeah. that was funny because the park needs a tree and those are beautiful trees. >> reporter: it's unclear how old the trees actually are. some say 70. some say 100 years old. no one at city hall was available to speak with us, but neighbors have reportedly gotten e-mails explaining the trees are in an area where a children's play structure is planned, but neighbor maureen deonkida said the trees are landmarks to the area and the plans ought to be adjusted. >> if they were like in the middle of it, maybe i could see a point, you know, but i can't imagine that they can't work around that. >> reporter: thomas gerrola grew? a house across the street and
6:17 pm
remembers watch -- grew up in a house across the street and remembers watching the crows fly in and out of the branches. he believes the trees are as much of the heritage as any of the historic homes that have been preserved. >> the trees are definitely older than i am. i hope it will outlive me so my kids can enjoy that same tree. >> reporter: in november a sign was posted saying the project was delayed to the end of 2018. neighbors are hoping that will give the city time to reconsider whether having large shade trees in a park is a good thing or not. in san bruno, john ramos, kpix5. >> san bruno hired a new city manager in june and neighbors have taken their appeal to him. up and down the peninsula steps are working to improve conditions for bicycling include -- cities are working to improve conditions for bicycling. a path would connect redwood city to mountain view including
6:18 pm
stops in menlo park, palo alto. the bike route would cover 16 miles. supporters say the goal is to design a bikeway that is safe, efficient and connected for riders along the peninsula. a launch event scheduled next month will celebrate the opening of an interim bikeway and begin planning for a future permanent bikeway. did you know that surfing is now the official state sport? governor brown made it official today. the law claims califo is tht of building industry and that surf forecasting and the neopreme wetsuit were both invented here. the bill does acknowledge surfing originated with the polynesian people and was imported into california from hawaii, state sport, surfing. if you're surfing, i strongly suggest a wetsuit because the ocean is still running chilly and the air above it is not that much warmer. look at the bottom of your temperatures here for the highs

6:20 pm
we'll see that happen over the next couple days with the ocean influence pushing inland as well. a cloudy start everywhere, a cooler trend for a while and 90s nowhere close, forget about the 90s we've had almost every afternoon. now it will be more 70s and 80s even inland. vallejo 75 tomorrow, napa 81, san jose 79 degrees and the 60s for oakland and san francisco and just 59 in pacifica tomorrow. we level off in the low to mid- 80s inland, 70s near the bay, 60 at the beach and early next week maybe a little cooler. still ahead he took an . agricultural giant to court and won. now this bay area pest control manager is speaking out for the first time. >> and coming up in sports we are live at the coliseum where the oakland a's are about to take the field against the texas rangers. now this team tried to capitalize on its success by selling tickets earlier today

6:24 pm
how are you today. really rely on you guys to inspire us and our team. >> i did get to bang the gong or whatever they have over there. i did make a sale. so i'm expecting a little bit of a commission for that. >> reporter: the tickets should start selling themselves thanks to players like matt chapman. the a's third baseman is up to 17 home runs and should be the leading candidate to win the gold glove. a's third base coach and former giants all-star matt williams has taken chapman under his wing and said the 25-year-old doesn't have many weaknesses. >> the only thing he's missing is a little patience and he'll learn that over time as he gets more into his career. we have to remember he's just over a year in the big leagues. so he's got a long way to go. that patience will come over time and he'll get better and better. >> reporter: how do you tell a guy like that to have some patience? >> it's hard to do. it's like he's the young colt that just wants to run.
6:25 pm
>> reporter: switching gears now to football, the raiders returned to alameda today. they broke camp in napa last week before traveling to los angeles. jon gruden must be a little bit puzzled and feels like he's treading on some water after the game against the rams. almost none of his starters played because the raiders face the rams in week one which means there hasn't been much opportunity for them to gel. the head coach isn't sure what to make of his stat sheet right now. >> if you'd have told me chris warren would be my leading rusher and paul butler would be our leading receiver at this time, i would say that's crazy. that's unbelievable. >> reporter: how about 20-year- old victor hoffman who won the u.s. amateur championship yesterday at pebble beach. he joins an impressive list of former champions. what does it mean to you to add your name to the trophy along with names like tiger woods d
