tv   Police Commission 2316  SFGTV  February 11, 2016 7:00am-10:01am PST

7:00 am
changing climate that eventually will be seeing more and more of this and need a better handle on you know what we can do and policy steps understanding that you know we have big rate hikes coming up with rebooting our system had been a balance trying to figure out to be responsive to the community and respond to those issues and be better cooperated. >> commissioners. >> first, i have a couple of ever questions i grew up in a flood prone area in which i and floodwater was not great my father had a hard time keeping the basement from flooding but my question the satisfies information will there is an accommodating financial plan with levels of service and what
7:01 am
is the timeline and how will it be communicated to the effected neighborhoods i want to put that out there you don't have to answer that but i have a question about the grant program every $10 million $2 additional rate. >> $2 in annual expenditures and how quickly we're spending the money. >> okay and i think you answered my question about the grant program but you touched on 13 applicants so i do work on any house hoimg before i get reimbursed. >> it is a multiple step you'll submit an application until we get a signed agreement we do the heavy lifting to make sure that meets the tints of the program it is a new program but the last one straightforward took 5 weeks first page when we
7:02 am
received the application to get permits through the construction, etc., etc. and then the cost of reimbursements the reimbursement should be on the order of several weeks just 4 weeks was the target for the reimbursement once they submit a request for reimbursements they'll be able to get the check in the mail in 4 weeks. >> one more for completely the housing units a lot of development how this effects the total capacity of the system. >> and i think the as we identified and articulated what really cased the flooding is stormwater i think that the nexus to additional residence for the flow with more residents their dry flow will increase and a lot of folks are seeing that with
7:03 am
dry weather increases should reduce the capacity in the pipe for stormwater and so it is really a case by case because in some situations with the stormwater management guidelines they're actually by the development we're having to manage the stormwaters on site that's why we see to help to encourage that and so therefore it could be overall a reduction of there in dry weather but decrease in stormwater because we were having to manage the strrments on sites it's case by case but if you are adding with the dry weather you want to reduce the amount of stormwater generated by the development if you were not developing at all. >> is there a time with the puc say beginning or planning. >> we have our stormwater
7:04 am
guidelines to look at ways they can minimize a lot of them their reusing the stormwater and so they can use it later a lot of projects that we are review as part of the planning process as those projects move forward. >> okay. >> okay we'll move to public comment at this point so members of the public if you could mr. and mrs. please do you have any cards. >> i have no cards. >> please come up and you'll have 3 minutes to make our comments. >> if this is a possible i'll put it right here and less than 3 minutes? oh, sure great, thank
7:05 am
you. >> this footage was taken 2013 according the national weather service the state police city has .75 inches of rain this particular neighborhood is a model of plan b the center a little bit higher level with the pond my family owned two properties at the cul-de-sack on the avenue my grandmother who is 94 years old with alzheimer's recently not limited to to the hospital because she's not able to afford to replace her furtherance and waters heart she's son social security i'd like to say that seniors have chosen to leave san francisco and live with relatives outside of the city because they can't
7:06 am
afford again to replace heating units washer and dryers and basically amenities in 2014 nyu now we understand there is a collection issue, however, would you care to state your name with all due respect puc has conducted studies during the 2014 sewer problem and documenting the sewer master plan in 2009 and. (off the record.) 2010 is taken a year fo hearing now from our research he with clarification as why small improvements upstream for the
7:07 am
upstream system there are drainage issues were made but done with little or no regard to the down stream impacts specifically to city and again be clear we're not asking sfpuc to handle all the problems we're smart, he understand that that is not something we can solve we're asking sfpuc to not dump human waits into our homes at the hundred year flood level into our homes thank you for your time >> thank you for your comments. >> next speaker, please. >> my name is william.
7:08 am
>> thank you for the chance i want to point out it takes me before a half an hour to pout point out miss leeds of the presentations the first, it comments from the gentleman that the city has been compliant with all of the permits ass is an out right lie they stated in their documents not allowing a nuisance for the residents ever san francisco the local and regional water board now the federal epa a investigating this action again i'll need a lot more time to go through all the lies the presentation here are some of the highlights many harrison said the flooding happens on alamany and fulsome that is a lie that happens every single year
7:09 am
i stop by the residents about a few weeks and talked about with the neighborhoods just before december storms of this year, the farmer's market was flooded and keep on saying this is flooding because of the storm system and the storm the system that is a lie this is not working the system is failing because the pipes down stream are too small to handle did capacity upstream closing and why none has talked about that today is surprisingly and they said the fema flood insurance didn't cover the sunday morning out of the system overlapped flow sewage i'm appalled the city thinks about solutions that have been study
7:10 am
for million dollars dollars i want to point out that commissioner vice president moran and other commission with ed harry stone howled there was a problem that the residents are effected it effects house thousands of us he requested it and i'll encourage to again follow our instinct what the people are telling you not entirely the truth there are so m itch more the documents are there this is what is happening here is san francisco version of the select water crisis there is lead the water and raw sewage in our homes the city put their own people in hazmat in f this photo here hazmat to clean up the problems
7:11 am
that happens to us every single year. >> there is so much more i can say in terms of documents our website is called solution dot sandbag.com tshlgs. >> thank you for your comments and waiting to speak. >> i having could have said more but i appreciate the time thank you. >> thank you. >> good afternoon my name is lena my house was the last one to get flood in december of last year 2014 the reason my house had the most damage the house enernex next door if gets as much damage my garage slopes down the mayor spoke to the neighbors and told the neighbors to think outside
7:12 am
the box of long term solutions through the process a little bit of the process heard from the neighbors about suing the city took over a year to get reimbursed and the mayor told us to think outside the box about the solution from the contractors came out to my house they said to lift it my client wanted to lift it because a long term solution to the city attorney wouldn't look at that idea they brought in their own contractor i spent over a month to get an estimate brought in about one and give me $23,000 bid to fix will in law the in law has been fixed the walls are halfway up the walls and the
7:13 am
kitchen is torn out i got 2 to $3,000 to fix it that's from the city attorney's office after a year i got any claim in february and took from june to december to get any check i think part of policy process with the puck can do definitely with the city attorney's office because i had the city attorney's office an investigator come out to the house like i was trying to steal the money why someone look at my house to verify what i was saying the claim i work for the city up work the same office the same building with the city attorney's office and i know how fast a claim goes in i know i can turn around and again a get
7:14 am
a co it takes one year and two months that is too long when our home is damaged. >> the process the climate process that sounds like. >> awfully long time is that usual what's the regimenular ti for that. >> i can't say a usual time the city gets 4 thousand claims a year from everything from a bus the to flooding in this situation alu you're dealing with damage to personal property and real property american people an assessment a valuation that requires communication back
7:15 am
and forth between the claim digesterer and once that deliberations is completed the matter has to come here and be calendar and it goes to the rules committee or to the government audit and to the controller's office and so on we had a problem with the appropriation running out of money and had to get a new appropriation so i'm sorry for the delay and we'll be happy to talk with you afterward if you're wasting and trying to clear this up. >> there is no one-size-fits-all for any claim it is a discussion that goes battery between the two. >> i was barb the claims but to 9 homes that were flooded.
7:16 am
>> we learned a lot on the water side we you know engage through the da a restoration company moving something we if not loading i think given we have done recently a survey to see what who is without heat and we'll make changes so we can deal with that faster quickly and have better information so this is something that definitely is an area we can improve upon. >> maybe as part of study when it comes we'll see the process to facilitate this these are issues we can help with. >> next speaker, please. >> game-changer
7:17 am
madam president and commissioners and completely i'm david hooper serve as the president of the new mission terrace association and trying to thinks i've been over and spoke to the people and victor and we see the flooding he spoken and several people an 15 i've seen with any own eyes at muni at fulsome i used to volunteer with the friends of library between 17th street and 18th street i've seen all the sites involves or involved i'd like to drawing your attention the early flood resilient project the level of the service it should be reevaluate the level of service goal commissioner vice president moran rays the question what to
7:18 am
deal with should some of the projects the staff is trying to formulate might serve them but those people there are several homes still uninhabitable and as for kiyucka avenue to say that people lost faith in the advisory committee puc and the city attorney and the city is to understate the question then we want to expand the clean power in our folks that are in this town that prefer penguin on the electrical side to the lafco and all of these every time there is a problem like this not addressed it injuries the credibility of the city departments and the puc and the politicians base it is parolee down as for the money we can spend money now or later
7:19 am
at question of the 2004 flooding to the best of my knowledge accepting the liability a party to the lawsuit and mochd after the incident 14 months ago everybody decided to drop anchor and left the people feeling it was not a serious response on the part of city as for the ideas of this removal of the short better it occurred at the ends of kiyucka i'll take for granted you saw is that may or may not provide some level of function we have telephone inch sewers where it goes downhill and decreases the capacity if you're bringing the water not a one .3 in an hour no measure of upstream the moving of water
7:20 am
upstream contributes or the catch basins flooding that measure is in kiyucka taking the big hit it does thanks for taking that seriously oh, one item increasing the projects upstream could address some incredible improvements and hold the water future upstream and the big problem will be the problem of the reservoir i assume that water goes into the sewer and then the question any people talking about whether or not level of development of increasing the per meblt so less water will go into the sewer system if so developed and goes into the sewer system now >> i think my colleagues know
7:21 am
the infrastructure is a priority understanding that maybe incredible but some combined system continue blue and green can help address those issues any other public comments. >> i'm sorry one other public comment we actually because of the short notice and the time it is scheduled a lot of the neighbors are obviously not here they are at work but have their letters welds to read if that is permissible. >> if you could please submit those. >> to whom. >> to the commissioners is fine and even to the commission secretary she'll make sure we have those the condition and sf water.org. >> thank you. >> yes. please next. >> hi my name is malcolm davis an 17th street and sfum i'm
7:22 am
extremely disappointed the city is not considering storage they own a big parking lot on affordable housing on one side not addressing the flood area my building was built in the 1870s way before this and the street level in front of any building is 4 feet higher than than what it was built because we reaccident the foundations found the old foundations and ducked counsel to the non-refund backflow preventers and found the sidewalk 4 feet down so it was crazy the city as filed the area and not taken responsibility for that and that the proposing new projects the area we don't do anything anything about the flooding, however, when the park was proposed some kind of flood retention was included in the process but that was taken away
7:23 am
and no one said anything to the neighbors and i went to neighborhood meeting i think that was in december and completely you said you didn't think the storage was a viable part of solution i think that is ludicrous that make sense i guess simple storage solutions we should be pursuing them and the crown of fulsome street a higher than the situations there are small projects that can be done to make a big difference like fulsome street and crown they have higher than the sidewalks you know and it is like why not have you know, i was told oh, we're looking at the parking lots the area to put storage in i don't hear about that oh, one hundred million dollars that is
7:24 am
a lot of less than $200 million why is not storage part of big picture i think this is really ridiculous and i also think there is all those fire stern's up in the hills is there some way i think that is aning norntd question but a way to slow down the water before it gets to sewage those are some of my questions. >> thank you. i appreciate all the critical thinking i do think that is what it takes the combination i'm hoping when we do a study it will be quiet expansive to look at a variety of complimentary methods is there any additional public comment? >> >> thank you.
7:25 am
>> so i would say that you know we are planning to once we get all the information to go back and engage and respond to a lot of the comments and maybe go out there and talk about i guess some difference of opinion how our system operates and so i think that is what we want to try to get to a common playing field of little actual design and what is cable and talk about the proposed solutions but understand what the policy decision of the commission you know if we want to hire protections in low lying areas and a what level for that and see this is really the plan and he really understand that in certain times we get the "x" kurgsz the water comes in into the system and joins with the
7:26 am
stormwater we'll look at how we address that up stwraem look at all that stuff because it is really a very complex system and then you know just for my prospective i know your system is built on storage that is why we have large box sewers and i really like the idea of conveying water moving it out you create a cup and when the cup is full more rain comes but if you convey it you move it i am not so this whole study we looked at different options for different projects and different areas and so that's sort of where we are today and that's why we are trying to identify low moving projects to
7:27 am
annihilate we know know but that's why we want to move quickly and get the policy decision and work with the communities impacted so we, have a common understanding what the direction of our city is moving as far as the claims are concerned and all the out we're more pro-active make sure that for the ones we asking can engage with some are part of a large lawsuit it will be more difficult to deal with their situation because of a lawsuit but for the one we want to make sure whatever he can do with that you know work with the city attorney we can you know resolve their issue as quickly as possible. >> commissioner courtney. >> i wanted to add i sense the frustration and it is tone
7:28 am
death; right? but i've been here for a long time and i also worked you guys know i work with the private industry and private utilities i don't think anyone a address those issues better than in utility right here i'm sure there is a possibility that we may be wrong from fremont but don't think that anyone intentionally misleads anyone that is the first time intentionally distorting the facts i wasn't here when commissioner vice president moran had the conversation by one of the things that jumped out with all due respect with the council to my left attorneys can innecessarily delay things i'd like to see an expedited process
7:29 am
connected to our conversation related to the level of service so anybody that is dealing - i think this is just adrc insult to injure we heard to the city attorney and the investigator coming in the house and wait that long and other provisions i'd like to tackle at the least what i consider - i'll stand corrected will i considered to be kind of a missed opportunity to address those things in an expelled manner i think that is straightaway things from all the important things like accidents but try to tackle that. >> definitely we're starting to talk with the city attorney on a better process. >> yeah. if there is any other opportunities i think responsive to the community through the process we try to come up with the option i encourage and urge
7:30 am
staff to do so commissioners? can i ask one last question given the fact we're going to go out to the community and solicit input as we move forward how best to engage the commission on the status of what is going on i think the purpose of this to really get the commission on the same page of the presentations we've made out into the different communities sort of the same presentation so i guess we'll reengage and reidentify that something that we present was misrepresented or may be slightly different i want to figure out as part of my general manager report maybe i should put something in flooding to give you an update of what we've done and some of the
7:31 am
issues what are some of the e-mails the meetings and what we're doing to keep you informed >> absolutely i think you and our staff are the communities liaisons i speak on behalf of myself stay on and on on top of this and have closer oversight what we can do to better engage and serve the communities those are significant issues i mean i'll not be happy if my home or neighbor's home would be flooded without objection include that on your report especially a relevant ground time and update we need to hear. >> thank you. >> commissioners? >> thank you very much. we'll take a 5 minute break please on?

7:36 am
the general manager budget i'm michael the deputy general manager i'll talk about the services and what we hope to accomplish and completely will talk about the broader can challenges and accomplishments we've succeeded as a whole so just a covering the general manager office we provide the oversight for the department and maintain the representatives with the players and we have an important citywide services one city resources from the business services into the general manager office to give for consistency across the entire services by human services and planning and security resides and real estate services and major development planning and cooperation with the major
7:37 am
development projects being development in san francisco and also workforce and success you section throughout the entire o this gives an overview of a chart of overall puc want to tell you a couple of things next year you're not surprised by a lien with the police department we have a captain working us on and on us on homeland but hire a full-time security manager within the puc it is more collaboration than the past in allows us to keep up the security across the entire organization we're spread out were we are working with our
7:38 am
h.r. s staff to repurpose our h.r. function this is due to thinking broadly the employees as well as employment process as we move through the puc with the section plan and the things we're working on to get off-street parking agreement what are our water and sewer and we haven't collected anything that is the development costs but working closely with them and a lot important things to talk about if you trmentd general manager kelly will talk about a broader discussion thank you, michael i just wanted to take an opportunity to you talk about the our xhishts you've heard not
7:39 am
trying to repeat all the things they've said but i wanted to talk about a bigger picture of the agency wide accomplishments i want to highlight first of all, we're able to hire 3 key positions to stressing our team eric was one we brought on board to deal with all the challenges that we have we also below market rate brought in educating too big shore up our h.r. and then we have the h.r. setting next door to andrea being trained as we speak so i know i just wanted to say our department has g done a good job of managing the drought within a rate structure like most agencies they have to decrease
7:40 am
their rates we lived within our rate structure awhile maintaining the high levels of service and it is just want to thank the team for being able to do that and a lot of the improvement programs we're marching along and as dan talked about that where we are as far as the progress and mountain tunnel is something we've been working on that to we're not complete we're seeing what we need to do to deal with will mother-in-law and lake merced we've got a long way to go we were finally cleaning that up and working with r rec and park and making a decision on the new tenants in the spring the other major accomplishment is noah valley golf course we're in position of that golf course and looking at the best future use of site on the sewer system
7:41 am
improvements we have a number of key milestones one that i must highlight is the bio pursuit maybe an hour ago we had the legislation passed by the board of supervisors to allow us to hire the contractor designer and developer that will build the value shops to take possession on a critical path to take possession to locate the digesters this is a judicial error accomplishment and several vip we've worked with they're currently underway on the power enterprise as you may know the big launching of cleanpowersf folks thought that wounded happen and next we'll do this press release and the on the power impressed we've developed a business plan to address the
7:42 am
fiscal issues concerning the pour enterprise i'd like to take an opportunity to talk about all the communities benefit programs that we've been able to implement in different communities as well the next slide is a challenges as far as the agency as you may know we faced retirement risks one of the things we identified that you know within 50 percent of our staff within 5 years will be eligible for retirement so really trying to develop new talent and having the senior employees work with the newer employees something we're focused on and also aging and infrastructure a lot of our systems are working around the clock for centuries and within our water system as you may know cross 3 major faults with the seismic
7:43 am
liability is a priority and the serve pipes are 70 years and under it is something we're focusing on and as the water consumption will remain flat or decrease we need the affordability to with the needs to invest in and maintain the water system at the same time, we are also expanding the number of new areas we'll really combaejdz in you know we kaubd cleanpowersf and in the advisory committee of the bike sharing but recycled water and grouft we have to monitor and green infrastructure and the power enterprise business plan those are programs we're excited about, about require additional effort and lastly would like to say what is critical to me have the strategy plan and have business plan that
7:44 am
we're all in loyalty that is something we're work on at the it is timely as the depths to do a strategy plan i think that as great opportunities to actually do that the next slide is the agency priorities this is stuff we're going to focus on and the next two years and one is that draw management we received a lot of rain as steve identified the drought presentation but we're still not out of the drought need to continue to manage agencies assuming the drought will continue cleanpowersf we have the piece in place but the the need to build out the program we need to focus on we're working on a successful launch but recognize this has to be nimble we'll be
7:45 am
making the changes to cooperated to the changes with the sewer improvement program we need to continue pushing that big program keep it on schedule and on budgeted so this is something we'll focus on in the next two years and hopefully we'd be be wrapping up the water system improvements with the calaveres and the recycled programs and to integrate those into a wider system is a challenge as well. the other thing you've heard throughout all of the our bureaus and enterprises planning so this is something i plan to come back to the commission to talk about how we manage it so you have a better idea how we're planning to implement that and then as we shift to implement our power enterprise business
7:46 am
plan, which we will very much the enterprise to attract the consumers we're focusing on and in the next two years our rate package that is something when we talk about water wastewater and power to focus on this we talked about the flood resilience we're focusing on think but on a national level we're in activity communication with restoring pg&e and then within of the things we were recent to work in d.c. on the create pipelines and infrastructure funding those are issues we'll talk about to d.c. and low-cost financing the other thing we don't talk about is heath this is something i've put out there to make sure that the focus is on everyone's mind we have been conscious
7:47 am
about health and safety for all the employees and customers which are on the forefront so this is a major focus and lastly to really complete and get the exclusive team to help us focus in implementing our puc 2020 strategy plan to set the priorities of agencies working with the commission as well and so ass as far as the total budget that michael indicated that this is really flat budget we're shifting the h.r. group under the gm other than that the public health will be flat which we're increasing 63 positions with that, that that concludes my presentation. of gm budget >> commissioner courtney can i
7:48 am
ask a question the security manager is that an open position. >> it's an open position. >> so that will be as the budget gets approved as part of budget process and that position will be creates they repurposed the position we didn't have to add another position to the body. >> thank you. >> on your organization chart does the dotted line mean what does it mean. >> that's my spear of influence (laughter). >> i really don't understand one that i don't understand. >> it has to do with how you have to report to the general manager to be an exempt employee. >> so to give us the dotted line is sort of like agree matrix organization last week certain types of responsibilities everyone responds to what the needs are
7:49 am
the lead takes direction from me, you point and everyone responds it is eventual to a project manager an engineer that reports but takes direction if the p m the circle a circle of influence (laughter) so juliette will never listen to him (laughter). >> to listen to me (laughter) off dwee. >> i have a g question about the straven plan is there an time an annual or two years. >> my understanding is that he wanted not only to bring to the commission and make sure the commission blessed it so we're trying to move quickly to get our staff to come here you can have a comment i believe that
7:50 am
one of the things that the mayor wants to accomplish is that the departments to identify when our strategic goals so we can work together as other depends as well this week we want to make sure anything we have we shared with the department of investment or rec and park or dpw to look at ways planning and so we can look at ways to do something better the city and work together as a family so that's - i would imagine i'll say every two years. >> that's like a document we'll get. >> yeah. you'll get a strategic plan document my hope to have all each one of the strategy plans remember that this is the mayor's request you have an obligation to do a strategic
7:51 am
plan every year. >> this is annual. >> kind of an update to one year ago commissioner caen was on the commission when was adopted long ago the past we'll show you the strategic plan on an annual basis. >> and when shall we anticipate 3 months. >> like who am i i don't report to michael (laughter). >> so the correspondents will give you a at some point of what we're doing and the idea come back if the spring probably april with a draft and be able to give comments on but ideally before the meeting in march where jeff will give you more details that is what the process
7:52 am
has been with the drafts outcomes are looking at in priority and the peak of that process. >> because you asked us at the last yuppie wanted to get you something in writing this is what we do with the timelines look like the packet. >> okay. thank you. >> do you have a chance to see one of the strategic plans from one of the other departments that was not voluminous it was a power point further out so i don't think we are expecting volumes of stuff; right? >> right in communication with the consultants they're pushing them but not want a power point but a slide document that we can present in a couple of months but ideal yeely not written not one hundred pages but 10 pages. >> okay. the other thing we don't want to produce a plan you
7:53 am
looked at every year when it is time i think this is something we want to make sure that everyone buys in and this is part of performance approvals we do this is really integrated kind of roles up something that is useful. >> and maybe work plans attached and the department working with us will be checking in quarterly and the first one will look at the plan i'm speaking to the general manager hope that this is implemented. >> sounds great, thank you. >> commissioners so 11 we'll take those ohoh - way you doing (laughter). >> i have i'm the vaunt general manager i have a presentation that is an overview of the items those are 75 pages
7:54 am
you've seen them i'll point out a substitute resolution for item 11 that rufktd two thing one from commissioner vice president moran at the last bucket meeting to the board of supervisors to sustain the priorities that the puc and the continuation of the city's budget process including the adjustment so municipal power rates in support of enterprise and the other one arrest, yes that is reflective in what you have the until the time you there was a correction for the roll up the revenue capital from the power enterprise from the capital and financial plan into the operational budget that's the other correction. >> you want to walk you through your presentation it
7:55 am
looks like work went into this surprise me. >> may i have the slides please so in a nut shell are the two year by angle those are budget items and the mayors 10 years and financial plan that are schaert requirements provide where the agency is going towards capital investments the budget development is a long process we're about the admitted we've kicked off in september talking about external pressures we worked with the staff and general manager to develop a budget we've spent the last month to brent to you after the action today, we'll work with the mayor to submit the budget to the board of supervisors
7:56 am
continue through the city's budget process so we are 5 hearings at regular january 12th meeting 3 special hearings we've spent 4 heirs on the 22 talking about the hetch hetchy and 2 hours 0 on the 29 talking about the and last friday the wastewater enterprise and today, we finished urban up with the general manager budget and you the item before you so there's been a lot of deliberation and discussion that went into the development of that budget. >> we talked about some of the external pressures the uncertainty with the precipitation and the expended drought how we are justin to historically low volumes with the pressure of the all areas of the inside and talked about the
7:57 am
increasing operating costs like general inflation but unaccepted increases in employer pens costs. >> so general manager kelly listed the appropriates you'll see reflected in the operating and capital budgets they're listed in here i'll not go through them you're familiar with that slide but i will oh, well. >> launching cleanpowersf implementing the power enterprise that is completing wsip with the increasing the pace of reconstruction and replacement replacement of our asset based and meeting the demands of new development so this relates to item 11
7:58 am
here's the two slides the total sources and the total uses of funds as you can see from the sources slides the greatest share of revenue from come moment and fiscal year 2017-2018 you see reflectisee reflective bars for cleanpowersf we have a new source of commodity revenue and along with that a new expenses as you can see at the top of this list the total uses as you can see that cleanpowersf is now part of budget you'll note in the $26 million in the
7:59 am
fiscal year $30 million in fiscal year 2018 one thing you'll notice in this use of funds by category the largest single debt services that represents 40 when combined with the revenue is 40 percent of budget. >> that highlights the changes you'll be seeing and i wanted to as you may know we went through a lot of measures to try to contain the increase the bibt budgeted when you look at the non-capital relthsd expenses it excludes cleanpowersf that will make a difficult comparison as you can see we're contained the increase the operating budget with the cleanpowersf to 46 percent in 2017 and fiscal year
8:00 am
2018 when you add cleanpowersf you'll add the capital relates expenditures to there it to 24 percent. >> here's how the changes breakdown you've seen those slides for the different enterprises here it is really out for the entire organization as you can see the 2 percent change in from fiscal year 2016-2017 and a large part of it is cleanpowersf then the change in 2017-2018 the latter increase is the debt service and capital related items here's a summary of the underwent authorized positions contained in this you've seen all of those individual for enterprises this is really up
8:01 am
for the entire organization as you can see we're w we're talking about the lense one percent the positions for the first year and second year and in fiscal year 2017 and 20 position in 2018 it is helpful to look at the next slide if you can see we tried to break down these into several categories you can look at the positions funded by new revenue sources so in the case of the cleanpowersf the 7 positions are founded by a new enterprise and new revenue then we have a number of positions also funded through external sources the largest chunk relates to proton funded project funding and the largest piece relates to renewal and replacement of infrastructure for the
8:02 am
distribution of transition pipes we're talking about annexing those and those reflect the priorities that the general manager talked about earlier so, now this slide recaps item 12 the two-year budget request we need to appropriate over the next two years to execute the capital plan it is breakdown here by enterprise and by fiscal year as you can see of the $1.5 billion ahf one $.5 billion or 70 percent is the wastewater enterprise the largest chunk of the two year appropriation and this slide relates to item 15 the 10 year capital plan that
8:03 am
so forth is the 10 year capital improvement plan comparing enterprise and with the proposed 10 year plan and as you can see that overall this is 3.3 percent and of the $7.9 billion capital improvement plan as you can see with the two year plan a largest portion relates to the sewer and improvement program and the wastewater enterprise so as you can see $5.5 billion and the san francisco percent relates to the wastewater enterprise now i have slides highlighting the 10 year capital improvement plan for the projects you've seen those slides before essentially the water use that is increasing 5.9 percent primarily it relates to the big increases relate to the water
8:04 am
investment and water transition and the water pipeline distribution system that includes the $80 million in new funding that dan wade talked about with respect to the plan the spending contained the 10 year capital improvement plan generates 12 thousand 8 hundred jobs and we're here to see this slide that captures the enterprise capital improvement plan and it decrease 3.6 percent but most importantly that reflected the update the schedule and costs of the sf i p so the entire ssi p a $6 million project over a 20-year period less money is
8:05 am
occurring the first 10 year period so renewal and replacement sewer system pipeline increased one and $47 million and as you can see we there's revenue finland for the cpi and the projects spends creates almost 50 thousand jobs. >> here's the summary of hetch hetchy 10 year capital improvement plan it is decreases over $43 million but contains $606 million for the mountain tunnel project and $40 million for to invest in distribution this for retail customers within the city and enhancing the business plan as you recall you'll see driefshths e droifgs with the capital improvement
8:06 am
plan to add $34 million in - related to appropriation not future spending we made adjustment to that. >> so these next slide related to the 10 year financial plan as you may know when we talked about quite a bit the budget and the furniture plan it bans on the historically low sale we don't assume that any kind of the increase the 10 year plan
8:07 am
will stay flat for the water and wastewater enterprise here is the water enterprise 10 year financial plan that contains the beginning balances and sources and uses and net revenues and ending balances and shares how the financial plan will meet the commission policy metrics for the coverage and reserve similar to water and wastewater it covers a financial plan based on the historical logging sngz these identical slides for resources and ending balance and that we meet the metrics for
8:08 am
reserves and coverage and identified the commission policy so, now when you look at the combined wastewater and water rates you can see where we are with the 10 year plan versus where we thought we'd be two years ago this chart has in red or yellow the actual rated increases that have considered through fiscal year 10 and the projects rates increases the 10 year financial plans as you can see the combined increase and what you see here is that versus we thought we'd be a year ago were about one percent higher so the combined bill for fiscal years 2019, 20 and 21 are one percent higher than last year that is even digesting 20
8:09 am
percent reduction in sales volumes versus when we set rates and charges you see that reflected when you look at the combined average monthly bill and in fact, the reduction in use more than out paced the increase in the at all rate the bills are actually lower or projected to be lower than the 19 through 33 time period than what we showed you a year ago and as well as lower than two years ago. >> here's the 10 year plan for hetch hetchy the same formulate a little bit more complicated things to note here as you can see little low to the cleanpowersf out of funds
8:10 am
balance in 2016 and repaid over the next 5 years. >> and as well as i'll points out on the bottom you'll see the assumption of rate increase for general fund customers is half a percent over the - i'm sorry half kreptd over the period every year as you can see with those increases in the subsidize rates the rates and charges they pay are still lower than other customers so that's a quick summary hopefully, a quick summary of 4 items before you i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> questions? commissioners? show we take a motion here for
8:11 am
those 4 items there's a motion i think we'll ask for a vote separately but move them all together but individually to just - >> so is there a motion to move. >> move item 11 with the corrections. >> second. >> and i have a other comments or questions on item 11 from commissioners. >> just a comment the additional resolve he appreciate your putting in there it is in recognition of fact that one of the people that set up the bucket people messed with it, too hoof what happens after it leaves us is not terrible consequenceal but maybe a few positions usually not a big deal
8:12 am
but things we care about i think it is useful to i want to put that out there a sense of what those key issues that is a good place to have i think the words is fine i'll ask that we also consider doing something more assessable the resolutions are boring but if we could consider between staff and the president of the commission pitting together and letter of trance mill and those are the things we're doing and acknowledge the rate increases and acknowledge that is difficult and on the other hand, all the key members to the presentation were the operating budget increase for next year's is less than one percent that the significant increases are because of other
8:13 am
things happening things people wanted us to do to pay the bill for what folks asked us i think that would be a helpful addition and our public affairs and i'll encourage to put something together. >> i think that sister-in-law like a good idea. >> we'll work with the president of the commission to put together a letter. >> thank you. >> so motion is on the table there was a second for 11 any other comments. >> i have a public comment card from one lady i don't see her any other public comment on item number 11. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? that motion carries the next item item 11 is there a motion to approve item 12. >>.
8:14 am
> all in favor, say i. > opposed? that item passes. >> next item item 13 is there a motion capital improvement plan. >> motion commissioner courtney second. >> second. >> second any public comment? >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> that motion carries next item 14 open is 10 year financial plan. >> i'll make a motion. >> second any public comment on that item hearing none. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? that motion carries we will not be having closed session no items for closed session so is there any other new business hearing none, the meeting is adjourned. >>
