3:00 pm
>> thank you, gale. good morning, everyone. i want to thank you all for joining us here today. as we all know, san francisco and the rest of our country, and cities around our country, are dealing with an opioid crisis hitting our streets. it's unfolding in our neighborhoods and in our sidewalks in front of our very eyes. fighting this fight means that we not only have to use existing programs but if we're really going to solve the issue and make a dent, we have to be creative. we have to come forward with new policies and new programs that will make a difference on our streets. and that is why we're here today. to announce a significant investment in a new, addiction treatment program with our street medicine team. the street medicine team has long been a part of how san francisco seeks to deal with the health of individuals on our sidewalks and in the streets of san francisco.
3:01 pm
the street medicine team is on the front lines every single day here in san francisco. bringing service and treatment to those who need it here in san francisco. the small but vital team works every single day to care for those were in a traditional clinic or hospital, it's simply not the answer and it's not working. their work is rooted in compassion and acceptance and meeting people where they are. including streets, our shelters and our navigation centers here in san francisco. with this new investment of over $3 million a year, we are adding 10 new staff and increasing resources to focus on the drug addiction on our streets of san francisco. and to address the opioid epidemic, right here on the streets of san francisco, the
3:02 pm
team will be expanding the work that they started with the pilot that started last year and expanding this program across the entire city. i am proud that san francisco is going to be the first city in the nation to take this approach. san francisco is a leader in so many areas and once again, we are stepping up with professionals that know how to get job run right. leaders willing to take bold approaches to address the issues confronting san francisco residents and those that need our help on our streets. by providing this medicine out of a traditional clinic setting, we're expanding our outreach capacity and taking every opportunity to help those individuals that are on our streets suffering from drug addiction. the program, which sometimes i
3:03 pm
have trouble saying, is an important part of our larger strategy here in san francisco and with our department of public-health, to address those struckelling with addiction. which includes detox to residential treatment services. this investment, let me be very clear about this. this investment will ultimately help save lives. and it will improve the conditions on the streets of san francisco. i want to thank a number of people who have brought this program to light today. first of all, director barbara garcia from our department of public-health. [applause] >> dr. sven for his leadership and ingenuity. we knew he would get the loudest applause and he deserves it. our department of homelessness and their partnership in leadership as well. and all the other providers and
3:04 pm
healthcare leaders that are behind me here today that are working so hard every single day in san francisco. to get those that are on our streets with the help that they need. whether it's homelessness or drug addiction or the other issues plaguing those on our streets, our goal in san francisco is to be compassionate and get people off the streets, on to their own two feet and on to better lives. thank you for being here today and with that i love to turn it over to director garcia for remarks. [applause] >> good morning. thank you mayor for your commitment to the effort of treatment access for those suffering from opioid addiction. i'm barbra garcia. i want to acknowledge all of the d.p.h. staff here that work every day to heal and support san franciscans who are in need of healthcare. i'd like to give them another round of applause.
3:05 pm
[applause] we know science has proven, for a long time, with many personal stories and the medication assisted treatment works. addiction is a challenge of a lifetime treatment and recovery happen and people do get better. mayor lee, a year and a half ago, asked me is there something else that we can do? we need to reach people on the streets who are clearly suffering and in the grips of addiction. what else can we do? we know that some of our traditional approaches of addiction treatment, that is, waiting for people to be ready to come to us to seek help. it doesn't always work for those suffering from addiction and especially if they are homeless. all of our services are voluntary and we have to develop care relations to engage people into care and it does take time. but i really want to thank
3:06 pm
dr. barrie sven who took this challenge for mayor lee and myself and add this service to his existing street medicine team. medication assisted treatment. to the streets where he goes daily providing care to the homeless people in need. that is how this program was born. in the fall of 2016. we have served over 95 people since then bringing medications to fight opioid addictions directly to them on the streets. by expanding the program today, we are first taking a big step towards our ability to combat the opioid addiction in this city. the new funding will allow us to directly serve 250 new individuals but we also know that we can serve more once we get those engagements and those relationships because in all of our clinics, we can access the service and medication. so this program is a big step forward to saving lives, lost to
3:07 pm
heroine, fentanyl and methamphetamine addictions and overdoses. homeless people who use drugs are especially vulnerable and our health system is adapting going directly to them with compassionate outreach and expertise. we're able to help a group that gets missed in the traditional >> all right, sgf tv. welcome back, people. are you ready to continue this? budget, budget, budget. we're going to pick up where we left off. is that you at the mic, ed? that is a party person. and i don't think we know.
3:08 pm
and ed has a budget of $22.5 million and is asking for a humble $260,000 increase. he's got 110 personnel and is looking for one addition. take it away. >> thank you very much. i want to, first of all, thank the controller's office and been in the controller's office in cali and the budget office and support and guidance and in particular the patience. and also i look forward to harvey rose -- >> did you hear that, harvey? he is looking forward to working with you. >> give him credit for that one. >> an i appreciate the seriousness that the committee takes the work. and your very important role, so thank you very much for that. >> supervisor cohen: thank you. awe thank you for inviting me to be here to talk about the good work of the city's mee museums. i am the fine arts director and
3:09 pm
that consists of the de jong museum and legion of honor. and hour strategy and mission are unchanged. it is noted in the mayor's budget book we will achieve the highest attendance of over $1 nt the 75 million people show casing the major significant acquisition to the city's collections called revelations art from the african-american south. thank you. it is terrific. the fine arts museum department fiscal year 19 mayor's proposed budget is $22.5 million
3:10 pm
represented by the green slices in this pie chart. of this, of the $22.5 million, 18.5 million or 82% is general fund support. the balance of $4.1 million is the full amount of general admissions we expect to collect, so what i am trying to say is that amount is really driven by general admissions revenue, not expense per se. and these admission fund the admission attendance with the balance being returned to the private nonprofits. with the special admission fees represented here in blue. total spending by the museums in fiscal year '19, the whole pie
3:11 pm
is $67 million with 66% provided by the private nonprofit known as co-fam or the corporation of the fine arts museum. referring back to the $18.5 million of general fund support, most of this represents salaries for guards and building engineers with the balance funding utilities, insurance, building may not nans and ongoing capital repairs and replacements. so this slide is for fiscal year 20. and it represents essentially inflationary increases from fiscal year 19. there are no f.t.e.s in fiscal year 19 or 20. in this and the next slide, i am pleased to share major exhibitions that will be understoodway in fiscal year 19 and to fiscal year 20. this features the legion of
3:12 pm
honor. presently works by schnobel are on view, and the rodin permanent galleries and the public and the court of honor. major exhibitions and to feature works by a radical group of artists and works by the renaissance artist which inspired them, including in this image here a work by botecetti and one of five works that will be included in the exhibit. east meets west will explore the cultural and material exchanges between india and europe from the 17th century to the present. and we finish the year with the major exhibition on peter paul rub rubens with the own rubens masterpie masterpiece. moving on to the de jong and
3:13 pm
equally exciting schedule is planned. on view now is to the machine in the context of today's technology revolution. this fall contemporary muslim fashions will be the first major museum exhibition to show case the complex and diverse nature of muslim dress. just in time for the holidays, we'll open a major exhibition exploring paul, gogin's and on monet's late years next february. we have, panhandled the teen d we have expanded the teen programs beyond the ambassador's program to an equally profound opportunity for meaningful engagement called we take action together.
3:14 pm
the program teaches productive activism this past year. the past year featured social justice with the exhibition and we are excited to report that we are to open a highly interactive space for kids and referred to here a working name for the project is art and cognition. obviously we need a much snappier name for kids as young as three, and we are working on that. the multiple accessibility programs are completely free and have increased substantially in part with the addition of family access days offered on a saturday. and in conjunction with our neighbor, california academy of sciences. we maintain a full-time staff position devoted to access
3:15 pm
programs. and we are particularly proud of the impact our current access coordinator karen burneker is having on behalf of the community. finally, friday nights are back in conjunction with the exhibition contemporary muslim fashions for nine fridays. we'll have extended hours, special free programming, free admission to the permanent collection galleries and deep discounts for the special exhibition. so madam chair, no new f.t.e.s and thank you and i am happy to take questions or comments. malia cohen>> supervisor cohen: the slides will so pretty and looking for the pie chart and the numbers. i have to remind myself we are the budget committee. let's check the numbers now. how much revenue does your
3:16 pm
department bring in? your revenue? >> the revenue is reflected in that admissions fund. >> supervisor cohen: the $4.1 million. and the general fund capital is $2.6 that the city gives to you? >> that is just for capital expenditures and we also receive general fund support for operations. >> supervisor cohen: $15.9 million which is 25% of your budget. >> that is rather stable. the capitals, of course, change from year to year. as phil ginsburg said, they're lumpy. >> supervisor cohen: and the numbers say relatively the same for fiscal year '20. >> yes. the only change for expected change in salary under contract. >> supervisor cohen: usually this time of year we usually hear from the security guards. remember that?
3:17 pm
last year? >> right. >> supervisor cohen: and i think we put the issue to bed last year, so we're not going to have any surprises? not going to have your union and security? >> none that i know of, madam. >> supervisor cohen: are they happy? >> i think they're happy. we're happy with them. >> supervisor cohen: he is good. you are good. very good. all right. supervisor yee, do you have any questions for this gentleman? i am looking at the budget page here and there are sources of revenues and i am looking at the charges for services. and first of all, what are these charges for services on the revenue side? and why would it be going down so significantly? and going down about $600,000.
3:18 pm
>> that is a good question, supervisor. charges for services are the admissions department. that is all it is. that is the total amount that we expect to receive or that we expect to collect in a year for general admissions. and so from that that goes to the city and collected at the museums and will go to the city and the city takes what it needs to fully fund the admission attendance who are on the city payroll and the balance supports co-fam private nonoperations. and the reason it has come down is we have more tightly budgeted that number. in the past we have had excesses in that number. and the controller's office and the budget office encouraged us to much better at predicting
3:19 pm
what that number should be. and so it was through that extra work that brought that number down. >> all right. for instance, the origin nal budget of 2018, and your actual is probably will be about $4 million this year? >> i think so. i would need to confirm that, but yes. >> supervisor yee: thank you. >> supervisor cohen: thank you. another question for you. i see that you've increased your target for participants in public programs. i am curious to hear how you plan to expand those programs. >> i think that's a mistake, madam chair. i think that may be a typo. i apologize for that. we anticipate that it will stay at 125,000. >> supervisor cohen: and no expansion there. well, maybe you can tell me what is your outreach look like for your programs? >> well, you know, as i said, we are excited to bring friday nights back, and that's really
3:20 pm
one of our primary or at least our most visible access programs. but we have public programs of the whole variety throughout the year. many of them are a series. a number of them are one-off events. and we try to receive as much private sponsorship for those public programs as possible, but also, we -- it's a matter of fully utilizing the facility and often through the public programs that we are able to provide offerings in the evening and for a lot of our audiences who just aren't able to come during the day or on the weekend and it is f an important access opportunity. >> supervisor cohen: all right. thank you. supervisor sheehy. >> supervisor sheehy: so for
3:21 pm
your summer camps, do you offer scholarships? >> i should know the answer to that question and i don't. i'm sorry. i'll get back to you on that. >> supervisor sheehy: that would be great. your summer camps are quite good. it wasn't clear to me that it actually reflected the population of the city. something we could afford, though it was on the higher end for us. so maybe going forward, you wants to look at increasing -- >> those are fee-based program, you are right. >> supervisor sheehy: and for a lot of the camp programs, they actually offer parents the opportunity to -- and the spca and other places actually give other parents the opportunity to provide support for kids who might not be able to afford to go. so maybe -- >> interesting. >> supervisor sheehy: and make looking at some sort of
3:22 pm
programming. the camps are quite good, i thought. >> thank you. >> supervisor sheehy: and every kid in town should be able to have an opportunity, i think. thank you. >> supervisor cohen: all right. thank you. how do you pronounce your last name? >> prohsaka. >> supervisor cohen: i think we will see you later. thank you very much for your presentation. very nice. next we will hear from the agendas art museum, jay chiu. good afternoon. >> good afternoon, supervisors. good afternoon. thank you so much for giving us the opportunity and also i like to thank our city colleagues for their hard work and partnership with the asian art museum. actually, this is my 10th year. and my anniversary is always in june, and my 10th anniversary and every year i look forward to this opportunity because the city on the board of supervisors
3:23 pm
and city administration have been wonderfully supportive to the mission and ambition of the asia art museum. what is our ambition? our ambition is to make asian art and the culture essential to everyone. to everyone. and become an essential part of american life, so to speak. this guides us to do our work day-to-day and reflected in our exhibition program, educational programs, and also our community outreach program. just to give you a few examples of our education for the fy-18 and for the filipino art, and we are a national leader in promoting understanding and appreciation of filipino art. and our testimony is a topical and timely project of bay area immigrants and immigrants of all kinds of descent from around the globe. here in the san francisco bay area where they find a home and
3:24 pm
this is the america's melting pot, if you will. and where the only museum that every year partners with pedestrian unified school district in presenting the arts festival. i am so grateful that our school districts are one of the few in the nation with strong artistic programs. going forward for fy-19 we continue to emphasize on the diversity and inexclusivetivety of the program which really marks the quality and excellence of the program and whether it's from south asia or from the west asia and also, of course, the art, the connecting the art of the past with the art of the present such as the kimono fashion from japanese that we will launch in fy-19. the national leadership has been recognized by our peers through numerous awards that we have been winning each year, which
3:25 pm
reflect not only on the excellence of asian art museum but the city and san francisco and our citizens in general. now moving quickly on to our budget, this is the city revenues. you will see that the city revenue increase is really very modest. fy-18 to 20 is just below 5%. and i would like to make two major points. one here is that no new f.t.e.s at all. in this new budget request. and that the increase on the parts is the very nominal increase. and the other marketed increase for fy-18 and 19 is in the capital area. and those are really for the long-term sustainability and a part of the city's and there are
3:26 pm
two. that help us to create the environment for the protection of us and only in our possession and also from traveling from elsewhere to the museum and also for the protection of our visitors. the other major expenditure and capital is the lighting to more up to date equipment that is long term. saving in the energy consumption. make the city greener. we are really grateful to city support in helping us to make our museum more energy efficient and more green in general. this is overall what the city revenue is, and you look at the two-year budget fy-19 and 20 and this city portion will come down. and the foundation part is keeping and picking up a bigger portion of the total operating budget. so look at the total operating
3:27 pm
budget, you can see that we have an increase modest from fy-18 to fy-19. and again, the foundation which is a private foundation raising money to help a city organization and pick up 2/3 of the overall increase and starting costs and increase and also the capital expenditures. so overall, we looking at the good trajectory that the foundation will increase the portions of supporting the asian museum, and at the same time we are looking for steady support from the city. we are looking ahead as you know. >> supervisor cohen: wait, wait, wait. when has the city ever not provided steady, steady support? >> yes, always. i just want to emphasize that.
3:28 pm
>> supervisor cohen: you just want to continue steady, steady support. i'm listening. >> thank you very much for listening and paying attention. thanks thank you. and i will go to every single one of you and our museum has begun the transformation project which really elevate the excellence and increase the capacity of our service to our community and to visitors from afar. and every single dollar of that expansion is privately raised. we are very happy that we have strong city partners in terms of permitting and in terms of making sure that the design is not only deeply respective of the historical nature of our district, but also for the looking really reflecting very well on the quality and excellence of san francisco. so i would welcome all of you if you have time to spare to come to take a side tour, hard hat tour, and looking forward to break the ground ceremonially on september 26.
3:29 pm
we reach out to each of your office and hope that you will have time to celebrate with us. >> supervisor cohen: thank you. it's so excited. i believe we probably met maybe two years ago and you were just showing me the drawings and schematics and the reasons why you wanted to expand the facility and the renderings were beautiful at the time. and i am very excited. you said the ground breaking will be in september? >> the physical demolition has already started. but the ceremonial ground breaking will be on september 26. >> supervisor cohen: that is great. i will save the date. please make sure we get an invitation. >> thank you very much. i would be very grateful. >> supervisor cohen: you said there is no personnel change, right? you hold at 58 employees. >> exactly. and the vast majority are security guards. 36. and we also have 30 engineers. >> supervisor cohen: thank you. and are you asking for a $1 million increase? >> yes. $1 million and $400 plus is for
3:30 pm
the lighting that will enable us to long-term energy savings. and the other $300,000 is for the chillers that the equipment to keep the conditions humid and the vast majority are for these two items. >> supervisor cohen: i appreciate that. how are things in terms of technology? >> technology, we are doing very well. one of the four pillars of transformation is technology. two areas and when technology enable us to tell deeper, more diverse stories of the content. the other technology is providing free wi-fi for everyone. so if you come to museum, you can get free wi-fi.
3:31 pm
>> but also an opportunity about learning to be public speakers and engage the fellow students. i think we bowl on that guard. at with our expansion and transformation. we hope to increase our service to the school district.
3:32 pm
we want to increase by average, 50,000 students a year, to about 55,000. by square footage, it will serve more school students -- students properly. >> thank you. i think that's it. >> thank you very much. >> i appreciate you. it's good to see you. next we will hear from the administrators office, mr naomi kelley. is she here? is there a city administrator here? she is probably still negotiating. >> my -- may i read the items associated? >> yes. i'd like you to call items three, six, and seven. >> yes. item number 3 it's a resolution improvement budget of the fiscal year 2018, 19 and 2019, 2020.
3:33 pm
item numbers number 6 is a resolution designating the bay area reporter to the outreach for periodicals of the city and county of san francisco, and item number 7 is a resolution to name a print media company doing business as san francisco examiner to be the official newspaper of the city and county of san francisco for all official advertising for fiscal year 2018 and 2019. >> great. all right, mr kelly. thank you for hustling down. by introduction, the city administrators office has a total budget of $460.5 million. you are asking for a 70 million-dollar increase. you've got 872 employees and you are requesting a 27 -- 27 increase -- 27 person increase.
3:34 pm
all right? are you ready? >> i'm you. >> take it away. >> good afternoon supervisors. naomi kelly, city administrator, i want to start off with the first slide to give you an overview of everything that is under the city administrators office. someone has the clicker? i don't. all right. just a quick reminder of all the different divisions here. on the left-hand side, there are six departments that are technically under the city administrator. what up which you will hear separately. but the other departments consist of the medical examiner, the entertainment commission and animal care and control. we have many programs including 311, things of that civic engagement and immigrant affairs, the bachelor programs, the community grants, the county clerk, the mayor's office on disability and grants for the arts. the office of cannabis
3:35 pm
regulation, transgender initiatives and treasure island. and then we have the back office, which we call interpersonal services. our contract monitoring division, digital services, -- fleet management, real estate, we often stop resilient, risk management and mail services. i would like to point out that there are two not departments that we are transferring out at the city administrative family. the allsup -- office of short-term rentals because they have traditionally been serving two masters or a mistress, and in the justice program, which will be moving from admin services to department of technology, after we also have digital services which is a lot of the increase and staff that is moving on the department of technology into the city administrator or admin services. as you have noticed and correctly pointed out, our budget is about 561 million.
3:36 pm
we are requesting 872 f.t.e. the major driver of the 27 ftes are an increase of a transfer of function of the 21 existing staff from the department of technology, existing stop that leads to the digital services program. >> what are they being transferred to add to do? >> it's just for the report. instead of reporting to the clu they will report to the city administrator. >> they are keeping the same projects they have been working on? >> everything from the website, the dahlia program, the small business portal, and there is something else they are working on too. but a lot of stuff that they are working on. permitting at one stop. we are streamlining our permitting process. then we also have a small increase to 31 want to handle
3:37 pm
nonemergency calls such as car break-ins, blocked driveways, they are handling a lot more of the homeless calls. our real estate division has a request for more custodial services. we also have new buildings coming online as we are decanting. we built a new public safety building and medical examiners building and we will be building the traffic company and crime lab which is in a different building. we knew more -- we need more custodial staff and engineers there. as you all know, we have 49 staff that are coming up online and in this next year we will need custodial services and stationary engineers. second-year changes are for operating staff as i just said. i am then going to introduce you to adam wynn who is a director of budget and finance for admin services. he will walk you through our departmental uses an expenditure types.
3:38 pm
>> good afternoon supervisors. if we look at the slide for the pie chart, it shows that our largest area of expenditure is in nonpersonnel services. those are generally for debt service, leases, insurance, convention facilities operations and in various contracted services. personnel costs to salary comprise a quarter of our budget, in the next largest category would be services of other departments, the back office operations, these are largely in utilities, phone and it services, rent facilities kept maintenance and building repair, along with other items such as grant support. the next category is grants and those are comprised of two programs. grants for the arts and in the neighbourhood beautification or otherwise known as a community challenge grants program. the capital is six%. and then we have debt service
3:39 pm
behind that. debt service is combined and two different categories. nonpersonnel services and it's own callout and the materials and supplies makes up three% of the budget. that is largely for parts and fuel for fleet along with custodial services. our next slide lists our major initiatives for the department in the coming fiscal years. with the mayor's office priority is, they are listed as having a diverse and equitable and inclusive city, clean it, safe and livable communities an excellent city services. underneath these categories, they will be leading the citywide census is coming in 2020. they need to do outreach to hard to count communities to ensure we do a complete count.
3:40 pm
they are providing additional funding to programs with immigrant communities and these are programs such as pathways to citizenship, legal aid and other programs that are facing increased deportation pressure. the next program we are highlighting is the office of transgender initiatives. we provide additional funding to them to develop grants, internship programs and policies to support our transgender community. the mayor's office of disability will be dedicating some additional resources to do planned checks related to the affordable housing rental assistance demonstration reviews. this will help expedite the delivery of accessible affordable housing. for clean, safe and livable communities, 311 will be taking on more of the nonemergency calls from the department of emergency management and this will help that department to reach the goal of answering 90% of the 911 calls within ten seconds. under excellent city services,
3:41 pm
as naomi mentioned earlier, that services team has a transfer function so the staff will be coming over from dt and they will continue to do work to update to the cities more than 100 city websites along with helping to streamline and to increase the processes. we will continue to do the exit from the hall of justice, and that comprises a variety of capital projects along with leases. there were leases that were set up for various properties including 945 brennan, 77. >> can't hear you. >> oh,, sorry. the hall of justice exit will include leases that were passed and reviewed by the board.
3:42 pm
and to those include 350 rhode island along with 945 bryant street and also 777 brandon. for the 49th south van ness. -- property, we will be having a new permitting centre going in. construction has begun on that property and we have positions related to setting up an streamlining door streamlining the permitting process related to that facility. and a new animal shelter will begin construction soon and we plan to open that in may of 2020. that concludes our presentation. if you have any questions. >> i do have a couple questions. i think they are some increases to the offers of cannabis. is that right? i don't know if you touch on that in your presentation about budget increases? >> there's no staff increases to the office of cannabis.
3:43 pm
>> what about -- okay. what about -- i didn't specifically mean just staffing, but overall budget. it is usually driven by the permitting process. >> it's a decrease. >> so for the office of cannabis there's a $100,000 increase for the administrative law judge contract. and there's a substitution of a position from an 1842 and 1843. it would be to attract talent into that department. >> okay. that would be a staff increase then quickly so you are changing the classification? >> we substitute it within the rules of d.h.r. when we were trying to hire and attract talented individuals into that department. as you know, we had a short time window to get that department up and running to write and draft legislation, get an equity program in place and to get an
3:44 pm
office that is reflective of the community, but yet to be professional. >> you lost me when you said substitute out. i've never heard that term before. >> it is an hr term. changing the classification. >> okay. all right. thank you. supervisor i see your name on the roster? >> yes. thank you. a few things. first of all i want to thank you naomi kelly for implementing, helping to implement a telematics program. i know, at this point we had 4,000 of our vehicles, city fleet armed with telematics. some of the preliminary results have been very promising. things like reports have shown, you know, that there has been a reduction in incidents of speeding, which is crucial to
3:45 pm
our policy around vision zero. and then, even collecting data around which cars are not being used, or idle. that is already creating a movement, i guess, to remove some vehicles so that we can start reducing our fleet, since we are not using some of them. saving asked the city some money. i believe -- and then, there is about 1600 more vehicles that i would love to see under the same program. these were exempt from the first wave, and they are mostly police and investigational services. so i am really looking forward to your full report in terms of what the data reports, and i am
3:46 pm
guessing it will be very positive, and this would help us get some motivation to have the other 1600 vehicles armed with the same telematics or some version of this that will be suited for them. i want to ask the question around the immersion of technology work group. i know you already have worked out who could be members of it, who would be members of it. i want to make sure that you have enough staffing to actually have the group meet and staffed correctly. if you don't, would you please let us know? i mean, do you have enough staffing? >> what we were thinking of doing is to use a consultant to help facilitate the meetings and
3:47 pm
doing a professional service cut -- contract to facilitate those meetings. we will have a draft plan for you to review in the next week or so of the frequencies of meetings, and, like the list of everyone who will be involved and what the government structure will be about, since it is a short-term them have to get a project back to you, a report back to you in six months, we decided to go with the consultant route. >> and you're funding for the consultant? you have the funding for the consultant? >> yes. we can afford it. i know that's unusual. we will not come back. [laughter] >> i know. thank you. there maybe some other aspect but that is one where we can afford that. >> okay. last issue or item, or question is around to justice. as you know, we had a full discussion of the situation,
3:48 pm
after 15 years it had not moved that far to reach the goals. and there has been rethinking and restructuring with how to move forward, in your presentation you mentioned, or somebody mentioned that justice will move from under your office to the department of technology. i am just wondering, even though it will be moved, has there been any movement towards that? because we were thinking it would cost us money also. would it be under your budget? or the office of technology? >> so there's two different things going on with justice. there's a day-to-day management of the justice employees. and they're going to move from the city administrator's oversight to the cio's are -- oversight with the cio who is here today i can talk about it. the government structure on th
3:49 pm
that, what will be the core mission of justice, what we are going through a business analysis to do a gap analysis of, where did it start, 1999. where is it today? what are the different things. technology has changed. what type of data do we want to get out of that? we had just recently hired a consultant to do that gap analysis, and over the summer, that consultant will be interviewing every sickle stakeholder who is part of the justice council, and there it staff on where we think justice should go in the future. now, lock boxing the money, and there are a lot of concerns on the it folks that the department of technology may take this money and spend it somewhere else. that absolutely will not happen. that money will be in a separate fund. it will be administered through the cio. she will have oversight by my staff. we will make sure that the final
3:50 pm
that goes to justice will stay with justice. it will not be spent on any other program, and we are committed to seeing this program move forward. >> that is well appreciated. just back up a little bit. i know i say justice and you say justice and probably anybody watching this on t.v. don't know what we are talking about. can you give us an idea of what it is? >> yeah. justice started as a hub where you wanted each of the criminal safety departments to be able to speak. it's a -- i don't want to get into the wrong terminology, but basically we want all the criminal justice department to speak with each other. when someone is arrested and police makes their arrest, it goes into i want to say a crime data warehouse, but this maybe the wrong technology word, where then, once they know what -- when the sheriff department knows what they were arrested for, and what to book them for. then the d.a. needs to see those
3:51 pm
charges so they know how to proceed appropriately and a public defender needs to see those charges and you want to make sure that people who are booked for the right thing aren't getting released on something that they weren't supposed to. i may have linda come over and explain it a little bit better. >> the summary of this -- of this is right now what these different departments have different -- >> different case management systems and they need to speak to each other. >> when he defined the common line. >> the court seem to be part of this too. the superior courts. >> thank you very much. no other questions. >> thank you. supervisor if you work late. >> hello, miss kelly. i have to say that, you know, this increase is just so huge. i can't even get my mind around it. it is an increase of almost $70 million in one fiscal year. it just seems so crazy.
3:52 pm
but when i look at the debt service here and i see that -- sorry, i did not bang my reading glasses and i'm kind of that age, i see in this last fiscal year, it was -- tell me if i am wrong reading this, the original budget was 506,000, and it grows up to 28 million? >> i will have adam respond to that. >> yeah, adam, how does that happen, and what is the cause of that, and why was there such a huge jump? >> good afternoon, supervisors. the increase in debt services related to the expansion, it was passed over the past decade, beginning with the creation of the tourism improvement distri district. so they elected to provide an assessment upon themselves, businesses. that was passed unanimously by the board under resolution 50 504-08. establishing and allowing that
3:53 pm
to tax themselves. their goal is to generate $917 million over the following 15 years. and then those assessments would be dedicated and applied towards the expansion, renovation of the area. in order to attract new business and remain competitive within a highly competitive field. there were subsequent resolutions afterwards, but proffer of them that established the expansion district, along with resolutions to approve the issuance of debt of over $507 million, and basically to help facilitate the payment of that debt. >> so, this debt service payment will go on for how long? >> it will go on for 30 years, i believe. >> thirty years. >> yes? -- yes. the businesses have essentially chosen to tax themselves because they see that there is an enormous financial benefit, wider economic impact that generates new business for them arms that increases their
3:54 pm
revenues and profits. by them taking the past several years to store up funding for it, and now we are nearing completion of the expansion that will happen in december of 2018. then we will be able to track -- attract more business to have larger conventions and generate more revenues. it is essentially still funding. >> it is still funding. when we look at this increase, we are actually getting more sources of income. would that be under -- i'm sorry that i'm looking at this. the increase would be expenditure recovery? >> so it is next. it is a number of things. there is the direct recovery itself where we receive our portion of the payment to ask in order to make the debt payment but it also comes to the city in the form of other types of toxins. there is a hotel assessment for each room that is rented, there is a portion that goes to the city and there of course, is the
3:55 pm
wider expenditure -- basically anyone coming to a convention and going to a tourist event, they're spending money in a restaurant and other businesses buying things and that comes through sales taxes. >> when we talk about the exit from the hall of justice, this is also absorbed the rental from the space is that have to rent as offices leave the hall of justice? >> when it comes to the hall of justice, that one is a mix. we will have some seatings from the hall of justice. the intent is to decant from the building because it is seismically unsafe and has other health and safety issues. >> the building. >> it will cost the city more,
3:56 pm
but in the long run it will achieve savings. in a short run there are minor savings by shutting down or mothballing some of the floors and rooms. we are trying to get it so we can decant the building to basically demolish it and reconstruct on the property. >> and can you tell me a little bit about the 27 ftes? >> the 27 f.t.e. is, most of them are existing city employees. they already work here and we are transferring it from one department to another. >> their budget also is coming over to you? >> correct. it is a releasing. >> it is just because the mayor actually gave instructions not to increase any f.t.e. in this budget cycle. and so that's why i had to ask you about the 27 ftes. really, operating expenses for the department has not grown very much. it is just these upper levels of the department. it is these types of expenditures that are added to the increase. it is a crazy increase of $30 million. okay. thank you very much. >> thank you. supervisor if you are touched on a point that you actually didn't really acknowledge.
3:57 pm
when the mayor gives budget directions, the city administrator's office, does that have to comply with the request? >> so, there's also a lot of request that we catch. i would say 21 of those are new ftes to the city. new to the city administrator's budget. those are existing employees. it is not new to the aso. they are transferring from one division to the next, right? others are things that had been asked by, i think, all, whether it is the mayor's office or the supervisors, there is an increase of car break-ins, an increase of, you know, everyone is directing everyone at 31 want to handle the calls and he can handle -- only handle so mccall's at the time. there was an agreement to add a position at 311. but is the other is the reality
3:58 pm
of -- we have opened up these buildings, and if we don't increase the ftes for custodial and stationary engineers, you won't have anyone to maintain these buildings. and so, and we -- and they are in different parts of the city. so we need f.t.e. to cover and maintain our facility is that we have just finished constructing, or we can contract the services out. typically, those have been as a prop jay conversation. those are the areas where we have increased, so it is not us thing we don't want to comply with the mayor's directive, it is the realities of what we are faced with, right now. those are the increases. those are not admin folks, they are custodians, they are 311 calls and the other 21 are moving city employees from one -- reporting to the cio to
3:59 pm
reporting to the city administrator. >> is that, again? >> again. >> catherine? >> just a quick question about the county clerk's office in terms of whether or not budget money was budgeted for the new system they made. we talked about it earlier. when i left the county clerk's office there was a concern that we did not have it in our budget to have enough money for this system. >> i will let jennifer johnson address that issue. >> thank you. excellent question. at this time, we have extended the contract by a year and a half to june 2020. over the next six months we will be assessing the need for additional funds to the r.f.p. process. we do not know how many additional funds will be needed but we are making that assessment and we know we maybe
4:00 pm
coming back to the board of supervisors for a request. >> thank you. just let me know. i will. thanks very much. >> i just have one question about the 311 calls. i know we have been directing more people to 311 then 911, of course. can you give me an idea of how the calls -- the calls have increased? >> absolutely. nancy from 311 can address that issue. >> hi, nancy. >> good afternoon supervisors. 911 and the nonemergency police was receiving about 3,000 car break and calls a month. so we have seen quite an increase, you know, because a lot of those calls are being transferred over to 311. we recently, in april, as of april ninth, we started taking a lot of the encampment calls. a portion of those, they get
