10:31 am
private entities that negotiate administrative and financing agreements with the sponsoring government to basically provide capital to finance the improvements under our pace program in sort of a public private partnership model where the funds that are actually provided are coming from private investors at rates that are predetermined and agreed upon between the parties with other administrative rules in place, and where the city basically is able to uses it taxing authority to allow for this financing to happen. >> then my last question chair farrell i know the focus is on panels for residential homes and buildings and can you talk about the importance -- and i know cal knows this from the department of the environment and the retrofits and it was mentioned

water conservation too and energy efficiency and water conservation as ways to reduce our carbon footprint as well. >> absolutely. the great thing about pace is it's open to many different kinds of projects. it's not just a solar financing program or a energy efficiency program. it's all of the above and water conservation, electric charging stations, anything that can help us meet our community climate goals by reducing energy consumption and putting more renewable energy on the grid is an eligible project as long as it's affixed to the property and in that way we think we can see more comprehensive projects that reduce energy consumption through efficiency and potentially adding the renewables which would be a great outcome. >> thank you. >> thank you and supervisor mar

10:35 am
the anticipated need to repace and upgrade equipment. at that time we reported we would seek the additional funds at the end of the five year term when we could accurately account for what the short fall would be so that's why it's before you today. this amendment would authorize the airport to exercise the first option to extend the contract and add $4.2 million to the contract for a new not to exceed amount of $98,700,000. the budget analyst recommends approval and i am happy to answer any questions. >> thank you very much. supervisor mar any questions? okay. much appreciated. mr. rose could we go to your budget analyst report please. >> yes mr. chairman, members of the committee, supervisor mar as shown on page nine of the report and the requested authorization for the extended period under

10:48 am
november 30, 2014. once they transfer the property or parcels are done the navy to the city these amendments would no longer be necessary but until that time we seek your approval to generate income to pay for the municipal services and street lining, building maintenance and urban forestry and child care development, programs for the youth through the ymca and the boys and girls club for the island community and i seek your approval for these amendments. >> thank you very much. madam clerk i believe -- we need to make these items retroactive to december 1, is that correct. >> yes. >> deputy city attorney john gibner, just the title. >> just the title. thank you very much. >> thank you supervisors. >> any questions? again the

10:50 am

10:51 am
the appropriation for the neighborhood plan and the acvaifia plan and the rink con projects totaling $4,388,000 are in the city's capital plan and table two page 22 of our report and on page 22 we have a table through which shows that the total fund balance for the eastern neighborhoods impact fee and octavia community infrastructure fees and the other infrastructure fees as of this date was 13 million plus so if you do approve the appropriation the requested $4,388,000 and request in a fund balance as listed. our recommendation on page 23 is that we recommend that you amend the proposed ordinance to place
10:52 am
$500,000 in transit center district open space impact fees and $300,000 in transit center and street improvement impact fees for total of $800,000 on reserve and that's because the actual receipt of such impact revenues that have not been received and that you approved the proposed ordinance as amended. >> thank you mr. rose. supervisor mar any questions for the budget analyst? okay. we will move on to public comment. seeing none public comment is closed. okay. so can i have a motion to approve the amendments as suggested. >> so moved. >> we will take those without opposition and the underlying item as amended and take that without opposition as well. madam clerk can you please call item 17. >> item 17 is resolution authorizing the office of community and infrastructure and aggregate bonds not to exceed
10:53 am
$70,000,000 for the amount of financing the obligations for the successor agency and redevelopment agency for the area. >> i am leo levinson for the department and the successor agency to the redevelopment agency and what you have before you is an request to increase the bonding authority in the budget. it was originally 58.6 million and this would increase to $70 million and the reason for the increase is turns out that we have been advised that it may be possible to realize more bond proceeds than we expected at the time we submitted the budget. these bonds are under the term of a development agreement with the developer has advanced already probably up to $120 million so far of unreimbursed infrastructure cost in this
10:54 am
area. under the terms of the agreement they are allowed to request us to bond and required to bond up to the limit that we can in order to reimburse the costs. the overall cost for the developer expected to advance approximately $700 million for the scbrairses a major commitment and doing this in line with that agreement. the debt service on these bonds are paid from property tax increment in the area and already pledged to the area so there will be no general fund impact from this action. we're very closely coordinating with the city's office of public finance which is part of our team helping to prepare the bond documents and we have been grateful for their help so i am happy to answer any questions. >> thank you very much. any questions? okay. we have no budget analyst report so we will move to public comment. anyone wish to comment? seeing none public comment is closed. can i have a motion to move this

10:56 am
realignment funds on the current budget and reserve for the sex offender containment model and housing. we urgedded committee to reserve also the amount listed. >> thank you very much. if no questions at this point we will move to the budget analyst report. mr. rose please. >> mr. chairman, supervisor mar on the budget of page 14 of the report we state based on the actual expenditures through the time listed and that is shown in the table on page 15 of our report and based on that observations projects cost estimates and require a total of 457056 in 13-14 to supplement
10:57 am
the existing agreements with the san francisco forensic institute and the clinic. and the reserved amount in 13 /14 the total need is 268653 and not the requested amount and on page 15 we request that you release the amount listed of the appropriate reserve and that's of ab 109 realignment funds currently on budget and finance committee reserve and that you continue to reserve 245697. >> thank you mr. rose. is the department in agreement with these recommendations? >> yes. >> okay. perfect. supervisor mar. >> thank you chair farrell. i just had a quick question. can you talk about the experience of ssfi and the tenderloin housing clinic with this segment of
10:58 am
offenders? >> well, the san francisco forensic institute is first of all has to be in order to provide this service they have to be certified through the california standard management board. i think we're very fortunate in san francisco to have a qualified provider that provides a specific service to this unique clientele. i think they of in business for significant part of time and have a reputation of providing topnotch intervention service. now, regarding the tenderloin housing clinic we have an issue involving -- we have a population of roughly 50 sex offenders who are required to register who are homeless and we know through homelessness that it creates destabilization and
10:59 am
when we have destabilization with our sex offender population or any of our supervision populations that increases risk to reoffend, so in addition to trying to implement this state mandated containment model we're taking it an extra step to try to really address the issue of housing and doing it by extending the contract through the tenderloin housing clinic for rental subsidies. it's my understanding they go up to $800 a month and depends what our client can contribute. >> thank you. >> okay. much appreciated. we will open up to public comment if anyone wishes to comment on item eight please step forward. okay. seeing none public comment is closed. okay. first of all we have amendments in front of us suggested by the
11:00 am
budget analyst. can we take those with recommendation? >> we can take those without opposition. >> and the underlying item without opposition as well. >> so moved. >> okay. we have the last item of the day so madam clerk can you call item 18. >> item 18 is hearing regarding funding the municipal transportation agency's bicycle strategy. >> thank you very much. this is an item sponsored by supervisor mar so i will turn it over to him to do the hearing. >> thank you. we have a audience of not only children but bicycle advocates with us and i would like to thank kathy and fred for their incredible work from the budget analyst office. i have been working with my staff peter [inaudible] who did work on this
