JUST TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE UPDATE, I WILL TAKE PUBLIC COMMENT. I WILL ASK YOU TO KEEP YOUR COMMENTS TO A MINUTE. I HAVE THIS NOTEBOOK FULL OF THINGS WE GET TO GO THROUGH TODAY. I KNOW YOU’RE ALL EXCITED ABOUT THE TECHNICAL AMENDMENTS. I KNOW THAT IS WHY YOU ARE HERE. BUT ACTUALLY, AS A LITTLE PREVIEW, ON THE AMENDMENTS, I THINK WE HAVE WORKED MOST OF THE THROUGH SO DON’T FEEL LIKE YOU ARE HAVING TO TWIST OUR ARMS. THERE IS MONEY IN THE BUDGET. I HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THIS FOR WEEKS TO MAKE SURE FOR EXAMPLE THAT OUR DOWNTOWN EMERGENCY SERVICES CENTER NURSE WILL BE FUNDED. OUR LEAD TO BASE STAFFING AND FUNDS WILL BE FUNDED. THE EIGHTH MEMORIAL PATHWAY, THAT IS A SPECIAL ADD. FORMER COUNCILMEMBER TOM RASMUSSEN HAS BEEN HERE WORKING WITH US ON THIS. THE HUMAN SERVICES COLA THAT WILL PAY THE COLA INCREASES FOR NON-GENERAL FUND CONTRACTS. WE HAVE MONEY IN THE BUDGET TO HANDLE THAT. THE HIGHLAND PARK INTERSECTION, THE UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS ELEVATOR, ALL INCLUDED. THE FOOD BANK SUPPORT FOR THE YOU DISTRICT FOOD BANK, WE HAVE AN AMENDMENT FOR D5 THE NORTH HELPLINE. NO, WE DON’T. HAVING ON, THE GREEN JANITOR EDUCATION PROGRAM. THAT WILL BE SUPPORTED THE LAST TWO WE WILL HAVE TO FINESSE A BIT ON THE NATIVE CULTURAL ORGANIZATION SUPPORT BECAUSE WE HAVEN’T RUN THROUGH ANY KIND OF AN RFP OR COMPETITIVE PROCESS. ALSO, THE HSD DASHBOARD TRACKING PERFORMANCE. THERE ARE SOME ISSUES WE DON’T WANT TO DUPLICATE WHAT HAS BEEN GOING ON WITH ALL OF THOSE. IF YOU ARE ON ANY OF THE TOP 10, YOU ARE COVERED SO WELCOME TO CITY HALL AND GLAD THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO MOVE AHEAD. YOU JUST KNOW THAT WE WILL HAVE MONEY TO SUPPORT YOUR PROJECT.

GREAT TO START OF THE MORNING BY SAYIG YOU ARE ALREADY IN SUPPORT OF WHAT I WAS HERE TO TALK ABOUT TODAY WHICH WAS THE DESC NURSE IN PARTICULAR. THE HSD INFLATIONARY INCREASES. I AM REALLY GLAD THAT BOTH OF THESE AMENDMENTS HAVE BEEN BROUGHT FORWARD AND ARE BEING SUPPORTED AND IN PARTICULAR, WHEN IT COMES TO REDIRECTING FOR SOME MORE PURPOSES, THAT HSD INFLATIONARY ADJUSTMENTS, WE SUPPORT BOTH YOUR BUDGET WORK LAST YEAR WHICH CREATED THIS POT OF MONEY AND THE INFLATIONARY ADJUSTMENT WORKED ON THE SPRING. THIS IS THE LOGICAL WAY TO FOLLOW FORWARD ON THOSE VALUES AND MAKE SURE THESE WORKERS ARE BEING TAKEN CARE OF. WE APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT AND WORK ON THAT. >>LINDSAY, THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE SUPPORT YOU AND THOSE THAT YOU REPRESENT. IT HAS BEEN VERY HELPFUL TO HEAR FROM YOU. >>BATH?

I WILL JUST BRIEFLY SAY THAT UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS HAS INVESTED OVER $4 MILLION INTO THE CAPITAL PROGRAM AND PROJECTS. FROM, SINCE THE TIME THAT THE STATE OF WASHINGTON AND CITY OF SEATTLE PURCHASED THE COMMITTEE CENTER IN 2009, WE HAVE MADE HUGE PROGRESS ON ALL SORTS OF PROJECTS. WE ARE COMPLETING THE OUTSIDE, THE PARK, THE P PATCH, THE PARKING LOT AND THE NEXT THING WE NEED TO TACKLE IS OUR ADA ACCESS TO THE BUILDING. SO THAT IS WHY THIS LEVATOR PROJECT IS SO IMPORTANT TO US. SO IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. >>GOOD. BETH, THANK YOU. I JUST WANT TO ASK YOU TO EXTEND MY THANKS TO YOUR BOARD.

JUST LAST WEEK, WE HAD A HOGWARTS CAMP AND THERE WAS 11- YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO PARTICIPATED WHO WAS WHEELCHAIR-BOUND. I WATCHED HER EVERY DAY. SHE REFUSED TO GET ON THE LIFT BECAUSE IT IS SCARY. NOW IT IS NOT WORKING. OR HAVING TO DUMP FIVE GRAND INTO IT. BUT I WATCHED HER CLIMB UP THE STAIRS USING ONLY HER ARMS. SHE HAD TO GO IN AND OUT SEVERAL TIMES A DAY.

IT PROVIDES ONE MORE SOLUTION TO BUILDING OWNERS TO HELP THEM IMPROVE THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE OF THE BUILDINGS BUT IT ALSO PROVIDES ADDITIONAL TRAINING TO JANITORS IN THOSE BUILDINGS. THE PROGRAM IN LA HAS SHOWN SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS IN BOTH ENERGY, WATER, WASTE AND ALSO THE CLEAN, GREEN CLEANING PRODUCTS, THAT IS HARD TO SAY FAST. BUT THIS PROGRAM ALSO SHOWS THAT EVERY ONE HAS A SIGNIFICANT ROLE TO PLAY IN COMBATING CLIMATE CRISIS THAT WE HAVE HERE. IN THE WORLD.

AND TO PROVIDE WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT AND MORE ECONOMIC SECURITY. WE ARE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS PROGRAM. OUR COLLEAGUES IN CALIFORNIA HAVE BEEN INVOLVED AND FOUND IT SUCCESSFUL. WE ARE REALLY EXCITED TO SEE IT ROLLOUT HERE. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING, BOTH MATTHEW AND STEPHANIE. IT MATTERS A LOT THAT WE ARE FOCUSING ON NOT JUST WORKERS HEALTH BUT THAT THE POSITIVE IMPACT THAT WE CAN HAVE ON BUILDINGS BY GETTING RID OF SOME OF THE TOXIC MATERIALS. WELL DONE.

THEY HAVE A DIRECT IMPACT OF THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC IMPACT OF THE AREA. WE SAW SUPPORT POLICIES THAT ADDRESS THE HEALTH AND WELL- BEING OF OUR CITIES UNFILTERED RESIDENTS AND HEALTH AND WELL- BEING OF THAT MORE THAN 45,000 EMPLOYEES THAT COME TO WORK IN SOTO EACH DAY. THE SOTO BIA REMAINS COMMITTED TO BEING PART OF THE SOLUTION.

I AM HERE REPRESENTING ONE OF OUR PROGRAMS WHICH IS THE BUILDING OPERATOR CERTIFICATION PROGRAM. IT IS THE NATIONAL PROGRAM THAT IS A TRAINING CERTIFICATION PROGRAM THAT HELPS THE PEOPLE WHO GO THROUGH THE PROGRAM MAKE THE BUILDINGS MORE COMFORTABLE, EFFICIENT AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY. WE ARE HERE TO SUPPORT THE GREEN JANITOR TRAINING PROGRAM AS WELL. WE ARE VERY INTERESTED TO SUPPORT THE PROGRAM AND HELP EMPOWER THE PEOPLE WHO WORK IN BUILDINGS IN SEATTLE. I REALIZE THEY ARE THE ONES WHO CAN MAKE THE BUILDINGS MORE GRAIN AND HELP SEATTLE MEET THEIR CLIMATE GOALS. SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND THAT IS ALL I WOULD LIKE TO SAY. >>THANK YOU FOR COMING, BRITAIN. RICHARD? TO SEE YOU AGAIN TRACY GILLESPIE AND TIM. >>GOOD MORNING. >>I AM HERE TODAY ON BEHALF OF THE YOUTH CARE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND IN SUPPORT OF COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA’S MOVE FORWARD FOR THE FUNDING OF A INFLATION ADJUSTMENT NOT SUPPORTED BY THE GENERAL FUND. I WANT TO TAKE YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP IN PASSING A NATIONAL INFLATION ADJUSTMENT TIED TO CPI. AS YOU HEARD DURING TESTIMONY, HUMAN SERVICE AGENCIES ARE STRUGGLING TO PAY OUR STAFF A LIVING WAGE AND ALSO TO KEEP OUR DOORS OPEN. OUR LIGHTS ON, ARE WATER RUNNING. THE ANNUAL INFLATION ADJUSTMENT IS A FIRST STEP THAT WILL ALLOW HUMAN SERVICES AGENCIES TO STABILIZE THE BUDGET AND BEGIN TO FOCUS ON COMMENTATING OUR STAFF FOR THE INCREDIBLE WORK THEY DO EVERY DAY. THIS AMENDMENT OFFERS US AN OPPORTUNITY TO PROTECT FUNDING THAT WAS INTENDED TO SUPPORT THESE AGENCIES. WE SHOULD SAFEGUARD THAT FUNDING AND HONOR WHAT IT WAS MEANT FOR. SUPPORTING AND NOT UNDERCUTTING THE HUMAN SERVICES SECTOR. YOUTH CARE SUPPORTS CARRYING THESE FUNDS FORWARD IN 2020 TO SERVE THE PURPOSE FOR WHICH THEY WERE INTENDED, NOT PUTTING THEM BACK INTO THE GENERAL FUND. >>VERY GOOD, RICHARD. THANK YOU. I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA, THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP ON THIS. YOU HAVE BEEN THE STALWART STARTING LAST BUDGET. CARRYING IT ALL THE WAY TO THIS YEAR. SO YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING. SO TRACY, TIM, KATRINA JOHNSON. >>GOOD MORNING. I AM TRACY GILLESPIE, A PROJECT MANAGER FOR THE LAW ENFORCEMENT DIVERSION PROGRAM. AND WE ARE HERE IN REGARDS TO THE BUDGET PROVISIONS, PREPARED BY YOU, 32 ENSURE THAT THERE IS SUPPORT FOR SEATTLE I.T. FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE LEE DATABASE. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP ON THIS, COUNCILMEMBER. THE LEE DATABASE IS COMPLETELY FUNDED BY MICROSOFT AND WILL BE BILLED BY CONTRACTORS. HOWEVER, THESE ADDITIONAL FUNDS WOULD PREPARE THAT OVERSIGHT AND ENSURE THAT THE LEAD DATABASE IS GRADED ANYWAY THAT IS EFFECTIVE FOR ALL OF OUR LEAD PARTNERS. SEATTLE I.T. HELPS CREATE THE SCOPE OF WORKS OF A DEEPLY UNDERSTAND THE PROJECT AND THE SUPPORT WOULD BE ESSENTIAL TO ITS ROLLOUT. THERE ARE TWO MAIN GOALS FOR THE LEE DATABASE, WANT TO SUPPORT COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN PARTNERS AND ALSO TO HELP AND SURE OUR ABILITY TO SHARE DATA WITH COMMUNITY MEMBERS COME A WITH OUR FUNDERS AND WITH OUR GOVERNING PARTNERS AS WELL. WE ARE DEEPLY COMMITTED TO OUR TRANSPARENCY AND BEING ABLE TO PROVIDE REPORTING AND DATA THAT IS ACCURATE. THESE FUNDS WOULD REALLY HELP ENSURE THAT THE DATABASE IS ABLE TO DIVIDE THAT. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH. I KNOW TIM AND KATRINA, YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE SAME TOPIC. I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU FOR MAKING THIS HAPPEN. AND TO RECOGNIZE OUR KING COUNTY PROSECUTING ATTORNEY, DAN SAT HER BERG WHO WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN GETTING THE $3000 GRANT FROM MICROSOFT. WELL DONE TO ALL OF YOU. PLEASE, GO AHEAD TIM. >>FOR THE RECORD, MY NAME IS TIM KENDALL, A PROJECT MANAGER, SPECIFIC TO THE LEAD PROGRAM. THE EVER-GROWING QUESTIONS AND THE EXPANSION OF LEADS, PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW ABOUT REAL-TIME PERFORMANCE. SO IN RESPONSE TO THAT, ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU COUNCILMEMBER BAGSHAW, YOU PUT TOGETHER A SLIDE. YOU ALLOTTED AS A BUSINESS ANALYST TO IDENTIFY A VENDOR. WE WILL ABLE TO IDENTIFY A VENDOR. TRACY MENTIONED IT FILLED OUT THE SCOPE OF WORK. UPON REVIEW, SEATTLE I.T. DEEMED THAT IT WAS A REASONABLY PRICED DATABASE, ESPECIALLY FOR WHAT THEY WERE BEING ABLE TO DIVIDE AGAIN, ECHOING THE IMPORTANCE OF KING COUNTY PROSECUTING DAN ZETTERBERG AND HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH MICROSOFT FOR US TO SECURE THAT 300,000 AND WE DID SIGN OUR CONTRACTS WITH DX SEE TECHNOLOGY WITH A GO LIVE DATE OF MARCH 2020. THE EXTRA SUPPORT FROM SEATTLE I.T. AND CONTINUING THIS WOULD BE INSTRUMENTAL IN ENTERING IT IS EFFECTIVE AND HOLISTIC. SO THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. VERY GOOD. KATRINA? AFTER KATRINA, PETER AND ALLISON. >>GOOD MORNING. I AM A PROJECT MANAGER FOR THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT DIVERSION PROGRAM. SOUTH PRECINCT, SPECIFICALLY THE SOTO AREA. AND OPERATIONALLY, THE CROSS AGENCY DATA SHARING THAT HAPPENS WITH PARTNERS IS ESSENTIAL. THAT DATABASE WILL BE AWAY FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS TO SEE WHAT IS GOING ON WITH CLIENTS IN A REAL-TIME WAY. SO THAT WE CAN FIND OUT IF THEY HAVE HOUSING THAT IS COMING UP. OTHER IMPORTANT DATES. SO PROSECUTORS WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO SEE IF THEY HAVE UPCOMING COURT DATES AND THINGS LIKE THAT. SO OFFICERS CAN GET THE WHOLE PICTURE WHEN THEY ARE INTERACTING WITH THESE INDIVIDUALS AND MAKE THE BEST DECISION FOR THOSE INDIVIDUALS IN THIS DATABASE. IT WILL ENHANCE THAT. I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER, FOR TAKING THE LEAD ON THIS. MAKING SURE THAT WE GET THOSE DOLLARS IN SEATTLE I.T. WE ARE ABLE TO OVERSEE THAT DATABASE IMPLEMENTED AND BEING DONE IN A TIMELY FASHION. THE WAY IT IS MEANT TO BE DONE. >>>>WE WILL BE TALKING MORE ABOUT LEAD AS WE GET INTO THE INDIVIDUAL AMENDMENTS. IT IS SOMETHING I HAVE BEEN SUPPORTING FOR YEARS NOW. AND I KNOW THAT THERE ARE SOME FOLKS THAT THINK WE DON’T HAVE THE OUTCOMES TO SHOW THE POSITIVE STEPS FORWARD, BASED UPON THE INVESTMENTS WE ARE MAKING. I THINK THIS DATABASE WILL BE REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US TO SHOW, THE HARM REDUCTION MODEL WORKS IF WE ARE ABLE TO FOLLOW UP AND MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE HAVE A ROOF OVER THEIR HEAD AND THAT WE HAVE THE CASE MENTIONED, WHETHER IT IS MENTAL HEALTH OR BEHAVIOR HEALTH. THE SERVICES THEY NEED TO GET THEMSELVES BACK ON THERE FEET AND MOVE FORWARD. IT HAS A REALLY IMPORTANT PART TO PLAY IN THIS. THANK YOU FOR THAT. WE HAVE A BABY HERE. I DON’T SEE PETER. I DON’T SEE HIS NAME. >>HIS NAME IS KYOTO. >>VERY NICE. >>SO WHAT DO HAVE? >>I AM PETER. I’M HERE ON BEHALF OF MLK LABOR. THE KING COUNTY LABOR COUNCIL. I’M HERE TO SPEAK AND SUPPORT OF THE GREEN JANITOR TRAINING PROGRAM. THE REASON WE SUPPORT THIS PROGRAM, I WOULD LIKE TO ECHO WHAT OTHERS HAVE SAID. IT CREATES THE GREEN JOBS WE NEED AS WE ARE ALL LIVING THROUGH CLIMATE CHANGE. IT ALSO HELPS DOWNTOWN BUILDINGS, THE CITY NEEDED SUSTAINABILITY GOALS. THAT OTHERS HAVEN’T MENTIONED, WORKERS BRING WHAT THEY BRING ON THE JOB TO HOME. AS THEY ARE LEARNING THESE MORE SUSTAINABLE CLEANING PRACTICES, THEY WILL BE BRINGING THAT BACK TO THEIR OWN HOMES AND TO THE CIVIL SECTOR INSTITUTIONS THEY ARE A PART OF. SCHOOLS, WHEN THEY VOLUNTEER THERE. WE BELIEVE THE PROGRAM WILL HAVE AN IMPACT FAR BEYOND WHAT THE IMMEDIATE JOBS IT IT WILL AFFECT. >>THAT IS A VERY GOOD POINT. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO ASK WHOMEVER IS INVOLVED IN THE PROGRAM, PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU REACH OUT TO SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES. THEY HAVE DONE A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF WORK ON GREEN OPTIONS SO THINGS THAT DO HELP US CLEAN OUR HOMES AND AREN’T NECESSARILY THE STRONG, TOXIC THINGS THAT MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE HAVING TO WORK IN THESE BUILDINGS HAVE SEEN FOR YEARS. SO THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT. THINK YOU FOR BRINGING YOUR BABY. ALWAYS A GOOD MOVE. ALLISON? >>NEVER FOLLOW BABIES. SO FOR THE RECORD, MY NAME IS ALLISON I THINK HER AND I’M WITH THE KING COUNTY COALITION ON HOMELESSNESS. GOOD MORNING, COUNCILMEMBER BAGSHAW, COUNCILMEMBER PACHECO, AND COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA. I’M HERE TO SPEAK IN SUPPORT OF COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA’S PROVISO WITH REGARDS TO THE REMAINING FUNDS FROM THE BUDGET WORK THAT YOU HAVE HELPED US THROUGH. COUNCILMEMBER BAGSHAW, LAST YEAR, TO SUPPORT THE GENERAL FUND HUMAN SERVICES CONTRACTS. I ALSO WANT TO TAKE A MOMENT TO NOTE THAT THIS IS A REALLY INTERESTING PART OF THE BUDGET PROCESS THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T SEE. THE IDEA OF INVESTING IN GREEN EDUCATION FOR JANITORIAL WORKERS. IT IS EXTRAORDINARILY IMPORTANT WITH DISABILITY ISSUES FOR MY LOCAL COMMUNITY CENTER IN THE UNIVERSITY DISTRICT. THANK YOU. THE WORK TO PROVIDE THE ABILITY TO TECHNICALLY GATHER AND REPORT GOOD DATA. THESE ARE ALL OF THE SMALL ADDITIONAL CORRECTIONS AND CHANGES THAT COUNSEL CAN MAKE TO THE BUDGET. WE APPRECIATE YOUR DOING THAT AND THANK YOU FOR THAT. I REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO OUR BUDGET SESSION THIS FALL AND I HOPE THAT WE WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE SOME MUCH MORE LARGE AND SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENTS. >>WHAT DO YOU PLAN TO COME BACK WITH IN SIX WEEKS? >>COUNCILMEMBER, YOU KNOW AS WELL AS I DO THAT WHAT WE NEED IS OF COURSE THE KINDS OF SUSTAINED AND SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENTS THAT MEAN THAT THESE KINDS OF PROGRAMS CAN DO THEIR WORK THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. IN BETWEEN THAT $100,000 ADJUSTMENTS THAT IMPORTANT COMMUNITY MEETINGS LIKE THIS ARE MAKING. >>IT WOULD BE SUCH A LESSING IF AT ONE POINT, IN JUST OUR CITY’S HISTORY GOING FORWARD THAT WE HAVE THE NECESSARY REVENUES TO DO THE GOOD WORK YOU’RE DOING. WITHOUT YOU HAVING TO COME BACK TWO OR THREE TIMES PER YEAR. TO PUT A FULL ON EFFORTS TO SAY THIS MONEY IS NEEDED IN A SUSTAINABLE WAY. I AM ALSO GOING TO BE COMING BACK AND ASKING ALL OF YOU AND THE WORK YOU ARE DOING TO HELP US FIGURE OUT HOW WE GET MORE PEOPLE INSIDE THE 24/7 SHELTER THAT IS A BRIDGE. IT IS NOT THE END ALL. WE ALL KNOW THAT. BIT ESPECIALLY AS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE RVS VERY SOON, I NEED TO HAVE PLACES TO PUT PEOPLE. I CANNOT JUST SAY THAT IT IS OKAY TO PUT THEM BACK OUT ON THE STREET. I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU ON THIS. >>I DO TOO. I APPRECIATE THAT. COUNCILMEMBER BAGSHAW, I HAVE SOME IDEAS I’M HAPPY TO SHARE. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH. THAT IS THE END OF PUBLIC COMMENT. WE WILL GET GOING INTO OUR FIRST ITEM OF BUSINESS. ALLISON, IF YOU WOULD READ THAT IN. >>HABITUDE. I HAVEN’T NUMBER ONE, COUNCIL BILL 119603, AND ORDINANCE RELATING TO THE TRANSFER OF CITY REAL PROPERTY FOR HOUSING DEVELOPMENT, DECLARING THE PROPERTY LOCATED AT 1314, 1326, AND ONE TREE 36, AVENUE SOUTH. >>GREAT TO SEE YOU AS ALWAYS. SO EMILY IS NOT HERE BUT WE HAVE THE STANDEN’S. IF YOU WOULD ALL INTRODUCE YOURSELVES. >>TRACI RATZLIFF. >>ERICA MALONE, SENIOR SPECIALIST WITH THE OFFICE OF HOUSING. >>GOOD MORNING. JENNIFER LABRECQUE, OFFICE OF HOUSING. >>IN ADVANCE, FOR THIS GREAT PROJECT YOU BRING FORWARD TO US. SO DISPOSITION OF, AVENUE AND THE NEW TOWNHOMES. >>WE ARE HERE TODAY TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT THIS POSITION OF THE COME UP, YEAH, IT USES LAND TO ADVANCE AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN THE CITY. IT IS ONE OF MANY ACTIONS THAT THE MAYOR IS TAKING THIS SUMMER TO ENHANCE AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR LOW AND MIDDLE INCOME HOUSES. AT THAT POINT I WILL TURN IT OVER TO ERIC TO TALK ABOUT THE PROPERTY AND THE THIS POSITION PROCESS. >>SO WE HAVE COME SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE YOU WITH THIS PROPERTY AND TODAY WE ARE CLOSING THE FINAL LOOP AND MOVING TOWARDS DISPOSITION. JUST A QUICK REMINDER, WE ORIENTATION IS A ZOOMED OUT MAP OF THE PROPERTY LOCATION. JUST NORTH OF I 90, WEST OF MLK AND EAST OF 32nd. IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD ADJACENT TO JUDKINS PARK, A VERY SHORT WALK TO THE SOON TO BE OPENING AND 2023. JUDKINS PARK LIGHT RAIL STATION. WE ARE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THAT. AS YOU RECALL, THIS IS A PIECE OF PROPERTY THAT HUSBAND OWNED BY THE CITY BY MANY YEARS. ANOTHER JURISDICTION ON THE CORNER HERE OF THE 19 AND SOUTH IRVING STREET. WE FIRST PRESENTED TO THE COUNCIL BACK IN 2016, AFTER FAS CIRCULATED THE EXCESS PROPERTY NOTICE TO ALL OF THE CITY DEPARTMENTS. THE OFFICE OF HOUSING WAS THE ONLY DEPARTMENT THAT EXPRESSED INTEREST. WITH COUNSEL DIRECTION, WE PUBLISHED A REQUEST FOR INTEREST TO GAUGE THE ARE NOT PERMANENTLY AFFORDABLE HOMEOWNERSHIP OR AFFORDABLE HOMEOWNERSHIP WOULD BE FEASIBLE ON THIS SITE. IT TURNS OUT THAT IT IS. AS WE RETURNED IN 2017 WITH A DRAFT PUBLIC INVOLVEMENT PROCESS, WHICH IS NOW COMPLETE, WITH COUNSEL DIRECTION AGAIN, ISSUED A REQUEST FOR A PROPOSAL. THROUGH THAT RFP PROCESS, THE OFFICE OF HOUSING SELECTED A JOINT PROJECT WITH COMMUNITY LAND TRUST AND EDGE DEVELOPERS, ORIGINALLY OH HAD DETERMINED OR ESTIMATED RATHER THAT THERE WOULD BE BETWEEN SEVEN AND NINE TOWNHOMES BUILT ON THE SITE. THE SELECTED DEVELOPER WAS REALLY CREATIVE WITH THE SITE AND WAS ABLE TO PUT 16 TOWNHOMES ON THAT PIECE OF PROPERTY. >>>DO WE KNOW WITH THE SQUARE FOOTAGE IS MORE OR LESS OF THESE? >>OF THE HOMES THEMSELVES? GREAT QUESTION. I THINK PROBABLY ABOUT 1200 FT.B2. >>IF WE COULD GET BACK TO YOU ON THAT. >>I THINK WE HAVE A WAVE BACK THERE. GO AHEAD AND SPEAK UP. >>THANK YOU. >>SO THERE WILL BE 10 OF THESE 16 TOWNHOMES. 10 WILL BE PERMANENTLY AFFORDABLE. AFFORDABLE PRICING TO HOUSEHOLDS MAKING AT OR BELOW 80% OF AREA MEDIAN INCOME. AND SIX OF THE HOMES WILL BE MARKET RATE, ALL OF THE NET SALES PROCEEDS WILL GO TO SUBSIDIZE THE AFFORDABLE HOMES. WE ARE WORKING THROUGH HOMESTEAD. >>THE LAND TRUST. SO WOULD YOU GIVE A QUICK EXAMPLE. SO A FAMILY COMES TO YOU AND WANTS TO BUY THIS, HOW DO THEY, WHAT IS THE NEXT PROCESS? HOW DID THEY FIND OUT ABOUT IT? HOW DO THE LOANS WORK? HOW IS THE FINANCING AND HOW DO YOU KEEP AND RETAIN THEM AS PERMANENTLY AFFORDABLE? SO HOMESTEAD IS ENGAGED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH AFRICA TOWN COMMUNITY LAND TRUST TO DO A BROAD AFFIRMATIVE FAIR MARKETING EFFORT. WITH THE HOPE THAT FOLKS WILL, FOLKS WHO HAVE EVEN BEEN DISPLACED FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD, TO BE ABLE TO RETURN. HOMESTEAD ALSO HAS AN APPLICANT POOL OF 400 HOUSEHOLDS WHO ARE INCOME ELIGIBLE AND READY TO BUY. SO THEY WOULD FIND OUT ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY THROUGH HOMESTEAD APPLY TO HOMESTEAD TO DETERMINE INCOME ELIGIBILITY AND THEN THEY GET A MORTGAGE FROM A CONVENTIONAL LENDER THAT IS A MONTHLY COST THAT THEY CAN AFFORD, THE HOME PRICES, THE 270-290 IS WHAT IS AFFORDABLE TO A HOUSEHOLD OF THREE OR FOUR AT ABOUT 65-70% AREA MEDIAN INCOME. THEY WOULD GO THROUGH EIGHT NORMAL IF YOU WILL HOMEBUYING PROCESS. AND HOMESTEAD WILL RETAIN OWNERSHIP OF THE LAND, HAVE A 99 YEAR GROUND LEASE WITH THE HOMEOWNER, THE CITY’S REGULATORY AGREEMENT WILL BE FOR 50 YEARS. DIMMING DOES HOMES TO BE RESELL RESTRICTED BUT BECAUSE OF HOMESTEAD LONG-TERM AFFORDABILITY MODEL, IT WILL BE AFFORDABLE FOR MUCH LONGER, SERVING LOW INCOME HOUSEHOLDS FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. >>COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA HAS A QUESTION. >>SORRY. KEEP GOING. AS WERE TALKING ABOUT AFRICA TOWN, WILL INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE BEEN DISPLACED FROM THE NEIGHBORHOOD HAVE ANY FIRST PRIORITY TO COME BACK? OR HOW ARE YOU MAKING SURE THAT THAT IS FAIR? >>GREAT QUESTION. SO THE OFFICE OF HOUSING, ALONG WITH THE OFFICE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS ARE WORKING ON A COMMUNITY PREFERENCE POLICY OR GUIDANCE RATHER THAT WILL INFORM THIS PROCESS AS WELL. I THINK THE DETAILS HAVE YET TO BE DETERMINED BUT THE HOPE IS THAT THERE WILL BE SOME PRIORITY FOR FOLKS WHO HAVE BEEN DISPLACED WITH HISTORIC TIES TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD. >>THANK YOU. SO AT THE TIME OF RESALE, IF A FAMILY, WHEN OR IF A HOUSEHOLD IS READY TO RESALE, THEY DO SO AT A PRICE THAT IS AFFORDABLE TO THE NEXT BUYER, TAKING WITH THEM SOME OF THE EQUITY THAT HAS ACCRUED NOT AT THE EXPENSE OF PRICING OUT THE NEXT HOMEOWNER. THE RESALE FORMULA THAT IS EMBEDDED IN THE GROUND LEASE IS TO BALANCE THE NEED FOR STABILITY, SECURITY, EQUITY, FOR TODAY’S HOMEBUYERS. WHILE OFFERING THE SAME OPPORTUNITY TO HOUSEHOLDS IN THE FUTURE. >>EXCELLENT. >>THANK YOU. >>LIKE YOU SAID, THE LOCATION IS SO PERFECT FOR FAMILIES NEXT TO THE PARK AND WITH LIGHT RAIL’S COMING IN. IN JUST A COUPLE YEARS. >>JUST THREE OR FOUR YEARS. >>IT WILL BE ONE YEAR BEFORE WE KNOW IT. >>THE LEGISLATION QUICKLY JUST DOES TWO THINGS, MOSTLY ASKING FOR A JURISDICTIONAL TRANSFER FROM FAS TO THE OFFICE OF HOUSING AND AUTHORIZING THE DIRECTOR OF THE OFFICE OF HOUSING TO ENTER INTO THE A PURCHASE AND SALE AGREEMENT WITH THE DEVELOPER. THE TRANSFER WOULD TAKE PLACE AT SUCH TIME THAT THE DEVELOPER HAS ALL NECESSARY PERMITS AND READY TO GO FORWARD WITH CONSTRUCTION AND THEY ARE IN THE PERMITTING PROCESS RIGHT NOW. >>EXCELLENT. THANK YOU SO MUCH. DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, COLLEAGUES? >>THANK YOU. LET’S HAVE A QUESTION AND MORE OF A THANK YOU. I WANT TO THANK CHAIR BRADSHAW FOR TAKING SOME OF THE ITEMS WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON AND INCLUDING THEM IN YOUR AGENDA. I KNOW THE AGENDA IS PACKED. WE HAVE AN EXCITING OPPORTUNITY AND I WANT TO FRAME IT IN SOME OF THE THINGS YOU TALKED ABOUT. THE 90 YEAR LEASE, THE ABILITY TO HAVE ACCESS TO HOMEOWNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES. IF YOU LOOK AT THIS SLIDE, I THINK IT WAS SLIDE 2 OR 3, THE BROADENED OUT MAP AND THE AREA WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THIS IS AN ACCESS TO HIGH OPPORTUNITY NEIGHBORHOODS AND RELATIVELY EXPENSIVE AS WELL. WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT OFFERING HOMES LESS THAN $300,000, THAT IS AN INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY FOR FAMILIES THAT IS REALLY BEEN PRICED OUT OF THIS MARKET. THE AVERAGE COST OF A HOME IS AROUND $720,000. EVEN IN THE AREA JUST SOUTH OF THIS, AND BE A CITY IN THE SOUTH AND, WE THINK OF IT AS BEING MORE AFFORDABLE. IT IS STILL AN AVERAGE COST OF $650,000. IT IS SO OUT OF REACH FOR FAMILIES. THIS IN COMBINATION WITH THE AFFIRMATIVE MARKETING AND THE WAY IN WHICH WE HAVE ENGAGED IN NONPROFIT DEVELOPERS AROUND COMMITTEE PREFERENCE AND OTHER WAYS AROUND THE CITY, THIS IS A GREAT ASSET TO BRING FORWARD. IT COULD BE SEEN AS A ROUTINE TRANSFER BUT I THINK IT IS REALLY AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO SHOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE TO HAVE A PROACTIVE PROJECT COOPERATIVE PARTNERSHIP WITH THE OFFICE OF HOUSING AS WE CREATE MORE HOMEOWNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES AROUND THE CITY. SO THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING US TO HAVE THIS CONVERSATION IN YOUR COMMITTEE. I REALLY THINK IT IS EXCITING ALSO TO LOOK AT THE PROXIMITY TO THE PARKS AS WE CREATE THIS DENSITY, WHICH WE WANT DENSITY. TO CONTINUE TO CREATE DENSITY AROUND PARKS BECAUSE IT WILL BE FOLKS IN THE BACK YARDS. NEW PLACES FOR KIDDOS TO GROW AND SENIORS TO ENJOY THEIR RETIREMENT. I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS WORK AND I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR INCREDIBLE WORK. YOU HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH US ON TIME. THANK YOU FOR HAVING IN THIS COMMITTEE TODAY. >>IF I COULD ADD ONE THING AROUND GREEN SPACE, BASED UPON LOOKING DOWN AT THE PHOTOGRAPHS, WE ARE TAKING OUT A LOT OF TREES TO PUT IN THIS AND I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE FACT THAT WE ARE REDUCING THE EXISTING CANOPY AND I AM HOPEFUL AS OFFICE OF HOUSING IS DOING THE DESIGNS, AND THERE WERE SAYING THAT, PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE GETTING AS MANY TREES BACK IN AND GOOD- SIZED TREES. I KNOW I.T. IS PEOPLE SOMETIMES, ST. JOHN’S WORT DOESN’T COUNT. IT IS GREEN, IT IS ON THE SIDEWALK, BUT I AM REALLY LOOKING TO PUT BACK SOME OF THE STREET TREES ALL AROUND THE AREA. IT MAKES IT A NICER PLACE BUT ALSO HELPS US KEEP THE NUMBERS UP AS FAR AS THE TREES THAT WERE TAKEN OUT. >>THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER. DO YOU MIND DIMMING OUT TO THAT SLIDE THAT SHOWS THE BROADER PICTURE OF THE LAND REALLY QUICK? >>CAN YOU POINT TO US IF YOU CAN WEAR JENKINS PARK IS? >>JUST DIRECTLY SOUTH. YOU CAN SEE THE GREEN TRIANGLE THERE. >>THE RECTANGLE. >>I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT ALSO TO NOTE IN THE CONTEXT OF NOT JUST GRADING OPPORTUNITY FOR OPPORTUNITIES SITE. CREATING EQUITIES OF PEOPLE CAN GET OUT OF GENERATIONAL POVERTY. THE MAP ILLUSTRATES THE PAST AREAS THAT HAD BEEN PREVIOUSLY REDLINED. THE HOMES THAT ARE SITUATED IN AND AROUND JUDKINS PARK WERE PREVIOUSLY REDLINED NEIGHBORHOODS. IT IS INTERESTING TO THINK ABOUT THE WORK WE ARE DOING NOW IN COMPARISON TO WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO DO TO MOVE FORWARD. THE REDLINING, THE DISCRIMINATORY MORTGAGE LENDING, RACIALLY RESTRICTIVE COVENANT, EVEN ALL OUT EXCLUSION ORDINANCES PREVIOUSLY INCLUDED PEOPLE FROM LIVING IN THESE AREAS. INCLUDING NATIVE AMERICAN POPULATIONS EXPLICITLY. I WANTED TO CALL THAT OUT AS A WAY FOR US TO WRITE HISTORIC WRONGS AND TO BE REALLY EXPLICIT WHEN WE ARE DOING SO. THAT THIS ISN’T JUST A NICE TO DO. IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO TO FIX THOSE PAST PURCHASES. MAYBE WE CAN TALK ABOUT THAT ON MONDAY. WHEN YOU BRING THIS FORWARD, IT IS HELPFUL TO HAVE THE MAP. WE APPRECIATE IT. >>THANK YOU. >>SO DOES THIS COME FORWARD? >>OKAY. WE HAVE TIME. I AM ASSUMING YOU WILL BE AROUND. >>ANOTHER SIX WEEKS. >>GREAT. ANY OTHER COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS ON THIS? SO AGAIN, THIS IS A FANTASTIC TOOL IN OUR TOOLBOX. I KNOW THAT SOMETIMES WE LOOK AT THIS AND WE ARE JUST LIKE, IT IS SO SLOW. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT HOW MANY UNITS THAT WE HAVE BROUGHT ON BOARD IN THE LAST DECADE, IT IS LIFE-CHANGING FOR THE FAMILIES. IT IS ALSO REALLY IMPROVING AND MAKING OUR CITY A MORE EQUITABLE PLACE TO BE. I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU BOTH FOR YOUR GOOD WORK. SO IF THERE ARE NO OTHER COMMENTS, I WOULD MOVE TO PASS COUNSEL BILL 119603. >>SECOND. >>ANYTHING ELSE? >>IT HAS BEEN MOVED AND SECONDED. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE. NONE OPPOSED. NO EXTENSION. GOOD JOB. THANK YOU SO MUCH, AND 12. >>OKAY. AS WE JUST SAID, IT IS PAST AND IT WILL FORWARD IN SEPTEMBER AFTER OUR BREAK. OKAY. SO WOULD YOU READ ITEM NUMBER TWO? >>I WOULD BE HAPPY TO. >>IT IS CENTERS, PLEASE COME UP TO THE TABLE. >>ITEM NUMBER TWO, COUNSEL BILL 119572. AN ORDINANCE AMENDING ORDINANCE 125493 WHICH ADMITTED EXECUTIVE APARTMENTS OF SEATTLE. SEATTLE CITY LIGHT THE DEPARTMENT OF PARKS AND RECREATION TO ACCEPT SPECIFIED GRANTS, PRIVATE FUNDING AND SUBSIDIZED LOANS TO ISAAC, DELIVER AND PERFORM. >>WE HAVE FIVE COUNSEL BILLS THAT WE ARE GOING TO REVIEW AND CONSIDER. THIS FIRST ONE IS THAT GRANT ACCEPTANCE ORDINANCE. WE TALKED ABOUT IT IN OUR LAST MEETING. THESE ARE GRANTS THAT COME FROM OUTSIDE ND THEY COME TO VARIOUS DEPARTMENTS BUT WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THEM OFFICIALLY. SO I THINK, THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. TOM AND LISA, WE WILL GO THROUGH AND EXPLAIN WHAT THEY ARE. THIS IS ROUTINE, WE DO THIS ANNUALLY. SO THANK YOU. IF YOU WANT TO DIVE IN. >>THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. I AM TOM MIKESELL WITH YOUR COUNSEL STAFF. AS THE CHAIR MENTIONED, THE FIRST ITEM THAT WE HAVE TODAY IS THE GRANT ACCEPTANCE ORDINANCE. SO THIS, AS STATED, FORMALLY ACCEPTS GRANTS. WE NEED TO ACCEPT THEM BEFORE WE SPEND THEM. THIS DOES THAT. WE PROVIDED A MEMO WHICH COVERS THIS PIECE OF LEGISLATION AS WELL AS OTHER TOPICS ON TODAY. TODAY’S AGENDA. THERE IS ONE AMENDMENT THAT HAS BEEN SUBMITTED FOR THIS PIECE OF LEGISLATIN, WHICH REFERS TO TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS IDENTIFIED BUT THE CITY BUDGET OFFICE AFTER IT WAS INTRODUCED. >>GREAT. YES. SO THERE ARE, THERE IS ONE AMENDMENT THAT ACCEPTS DIFFERENT GRANTS. ONE IS, I SHOULD ACTUALLY REFER TO THE ACTUAL AMENDMENT. $225,000 FROM AMAZON THAT GOES TO THE DEPARTMENT OF PARKS AND RECREATION FUND. SO THIS ONE WAS ACTUALLY INCLUDED IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET, WHICH IS LATER ON IN THE DISCUSSION TODAY. >>WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THIS SO WE CAN SPEND IT. THIS IS FOR SCHOLARSHIPS AS I UNDERSTAND FOR SUMMER CAMP AND FOR KIDS WHO WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO OTHERWISE GO. >>CORRECT. AND SO THAT IS 225,000 TO THE PARKS AND RECREATION FUND. THE OTHER ONE IS A TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT BOARD GRANT THAT IS $500,000 GOING TO PROVIDE AGE FRIENDLY SCREEN ESCAPE IN THE DELRIDGE NEIGHBORHOOD. THIS ONE IS NOT IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL. IT WILL BE ONCE IT IS RECEIVED. THEY WILL INCLUDED IN FUTURE SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET ADJUSTMENTS. HOWEVER, WE DO NEED TO FORMALLY ACCEPT THE GRANT TO BE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE TIB PROCESS. >>VERY GOOD. DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS? IT IS FAIRLY SIMPLE. ROUTINE. I DON’T HAVE ANY REASON TO THINK WE SHOULDN’T ACCEPT THE GRANT. SO TWO THINGS, ONE IS WE WILL MOVE TO ACCEPT, ZOOMING IT PASSES, WE THE SECOND MOTION THAT WILL ALLOW US TO BRING IT FORWARD NEXT MONDAY. AT FULL COMMITTEE. IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE THE MONEY IN ORDER TO SPEND IT. >>OKAY? SO IF WE HAVE NO OTHER QUESTIONS, I WOULD MOVE TO PASS COUNSEL BILL 119 574. THE AMENDMENT THAT WE HAVE HERE IS, IT IS A GRANT ACCEPTANCE FOR THIS ADDITION TO THE OTHER GRANTS WE HAVE ALREADY DISCUSSED. I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE A MEMO NUMBER 1 FOR 119574. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR? I JUST THE AMENDED, SAY AYE. THEN WE HAVE THE AMENDED GRANT IN FRONT OF US. AND I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE COUNSEL BILL 119574 AS AMENDED. OKAY. ALL THOSE, ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. NONE OPPOSED. NO EXTENSIONS. THAT WILL MOVE FORWARD. SO NOW THAT THIS IS PAST, I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE THAT WE HAVE A SPECIAL RECOGNITION THAT THIS WILL COME FORWARD, THIS MONDAY, AUGUST 12, FOR REVIEW AND APPROVAL BY THE COUNCIL. OKAY. SECOND? ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE. GOOD. NONE OPPOSED. NO EXTENSIONS. SO WE WILL BRING THAT ITEM IN FRONT OF FULL COUNCIL ON MONDAY. THANK YOU, TOM, THANK YOU ALLISON FOR REMINDING ME ABOUT THAT. OKAY. SO ITEM NUMBER THREE. >>ITEM NUMBER THREE, COUNSEL BILL 119575, AN ORDINANCE AMENDING 125 74 WHICH ADOPTED THE 2002 BUDGET, INCLUDING THE 2019-2024 CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. DIGITAL PREPARATIONS TO VARIOUS DEPARTMENT AND BUDGET CONTROL LEVELS AND FROM VARIOUS FUNDS IN THE BUDGET. >>WE WILL SPEND MORE TIME ON THE OTHER ITEMS BECAUSE WE ARE GOING THROUGH ONE BY ONE. WITH THE AMENDMENTS THAT WE HAVE BROUGHT FORWARD. OKAY, TOM, DO YOU WANT TO EXPLAIN THIS TO US? >>GREAT. YES. SO LISA HANDED YOU A COPY OF THE MEMO THAT WAS DISTRIBUTED BECAUSE IT WILL HELP ORIENT AS WE WALK THROUGH THE AMENDMENTS. THIS IS THE ONLY OTHER PIECE OF LEGISLATION WITH AMENDMENTS. SO JUST IN TERMS OF ORIENTING, WE WILL START THE AMENDMENTS ON PAGE 2 OF 19. IT IS ESSENTIALLY, AFTER WE MOVE PAST THE GRANT, IT IS THE THIRD PIECE OF PAPER IN THE MEMO. >>I’M SORRY. >>YES. >>AND SO, THANK YOU ALLISON. IT WOULD BE ON ONE OF 19. RIGHT. AGAIN, KIND OF TO PREFACE THE CITY BUDGET OFFICE AND THE DEPARTMENTAL COLLEAGUES, THEY ARE DOING THIS IN THE NEW BUDGET SYSTEM FOR THE FIRST TIME SO I THINK THAT IS KIND OF THE REASON THAT THERE ARE A NUMBER OF TECHNICAL ADJUSTMENTS THAT THEY HAD SENT TO US. SO THE FIRST THREE, THEY ARE ONES WE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT. THEY ARE TECHNICAL IN NATURE, SENT TO US BY THE CITY BUDGET OFFICE. >>ALL RIGHT. ALSO, IN THIS TECHNICAL AMENDMENT, WE HAVE CHANGED THE NAME OF THE FUN. IT HAD PREVIOUSLY BEEN HERE ARENA FIND AND NOW IT IS SEATTLE CENTER FUND. >>THAT IS CORRECT. THAT IS THE CHANGE. IT CHANGES THE FUND TITLE AND THE BCL WHERE THE MONEY GOES. OTHERWISE, THERE IS NO SUBSTANTIVE CHANGE. THAT IS AMENDMENT ONE A IN THE PACKET. >>WE WILL GO THROUGH THESE INDIVIDUALLY. ANY QUESTIONS ON THIS? THEN I WILL MOVE THAT WE ACCEPT AMENDMENT ONE A. THIS IS A TECHNICAL ADJUSTMENT GUARDING THE SEATTLE CENTER FUND. SECOND? AGAIN. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. NONE OF POSE. NO EXTENSIONS. THIS PASSES. AMENDMENT ONE A, THE TECHNICAL ADJUSTMENT FUND. >>GOOD. ALL RIGHT, TOM PLEASE KEEP GOING ON TO 1B. >>SO ONE BE IS ON PAGE 2 OF 19. IN A SIMILAR VEIN, THIS IS A TECHNICAL CORRECTION. IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, IT IS CORRECTING SECTION 11 OF THE SUPPLEMENTAL BILL. IT IS ALIGNING THE POSITION TOTALS AND THE TABLE OF SECTION 11 WITH THE OTHER ELEMENTS OF THE SUPPLEMENTAL WHERE THERE IS EITHER APPROPRIATIONS PROVIDED OR OTHER ELEMENTS OF THE ADS DISCUSSED. SO WHAT THIS DOES IS IT INCREASES THE POSITION TABLE BY 1.5 POSITION TOTALS. IN THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES OR POSITIONS TO PROVIDE WORK SUPPORTING HR. IT ALSO ADDS LANGUAGE THAT ALLOWS THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES, SO THE HUMAN RESOURCES DEPARTMENT DIRECTOR TO HIRE THESE POSITIONS, WHICH IS A TECHNICAL REQUIREMENT FOR THIS TYPE OF AN AD. >>ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? >>IT SEEMS PRETTY PERFUNCTORY. THERE’S NOTHING HERE WE NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT. SO I WILL MOVE AMENDMENT ONE BE. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. NONE OPPOSED? THIS MOTION, THIS AMENDMENT PASSES. THANK YOU. IF YOU WANT TO PROCEED TO ONE SEE. >>SO ONE SEE IS ON PAGE 4 OF 19. AND SIMILAR, THIS GOES IN THE OTHER DIRECTION. IT UPDATES THE POSITION TABLE, WHICH DEALS WITH THE EXCEPT POSITION CATEGORY. IT REMOVES A POSITION FROM THAT TABLE, CORRECTING THE TOTAL FROM 4 TO 3. IT IS UNDER THE SAME TECHNICAL ADJUSTMENTS IDENTIFIED BY CBO AFTER DEDUCTION. >>ANY QUESTIONS? ONCE AGAIN, THIS IS AN AMENDMENT THAT PROVIDES TECHNICAL CHANGE TO THE POSITION IN OUR HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. NONE OPPOSED? NO EXTENSIONS. THIS AMENDMENT ONE SEE PASSES. SO MOVING THROUGH THE AGENDA, NOW WE ARE DEALING WITH COUNSEL PROPOSED AMENDMENTS. AMENDMENT 2 DEALS WITH THAT CENTRAL COMMUNITY PRESERVATION DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY PROPOSED BY COUNCILMEMBER HARRELL. FOR SOME REASON THE PRINTOUT WE HAVE DOESN’T HAVE THE FULL TITLE. ON THE TOP HERE. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT PAGE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT? >>FIVE OF 19. >>>FOR SOME REASON MINE PRINTED WITH HAVE A TITLE. THANK YOU FOR JUST KEEPING THAT. >>THAT IS SO FUNNY. >>I GOT A NEW COPY. THANK YOU SO MUCH. >>NO WORRIES. I AM FOLLOWING ALONG. I GOT YOU. >>THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. >>THANK YOU. >>PLEASE. CONTINUE. SO THIS AMENDMENT, SO GREEN SHEET 13.4 B 1 EMMA IT CREATES AND PUTS THE MONEY AND A GENERAL FUND FOR A FEASIBILITY STUDY TO INFORM A NEW CENTRAL AREA COMMUNITY PRESERVATION AND DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY. IT IS FUNDS FROM THE STATE AND COUNTY, TOTALLY TO $50,000 TO SUPPORT INITIAL PLANNING AND OUTREACH WORK. WHAT THIS AMENDMENT DOES IS IT MOVES THE MONEY FROM FINANCE GENERAL TO THE LEGISLATIVE DEPARTMENT TO ENGAGE IN NETWORK. >>THERE IS NO ADDITIONAL MONEY? IT IS JUST A TRANSFER? >>A ZERO NET INCREASE. >>ANY QUESTIONS? SO I WILL MOVE AMENDMENT NUMBER TWO, WHICH IS THE CENTRAL AREA COMMITTEE PRESERVATION AND DEVELOP INTO AUTHORITY. SECOND? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. NONE OPPOSED. THANK YOU. THIS AMENDMENT PASSES. SO THE NEXT ONE IS OUR DOWNTOWN EMERGENCY SERVICES CENTER NURSE. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE IT EMMA I WOULD LIKE TO SAY A FEW WORDS ABOUT IT. >>OKAY. SO WHAT THIS AMENDMENT DOES IS IT DOES NOT ADD TO THE BUDGET. IT REDIRECTS SOME BUDGET SAVINGS WITHIN THE ADDRESSING HOMELESSNESS BSL. IT DIRECTS $40,000 TO A PROVISO TO PROVIDE MEDICAL CARE DURING EVENING OR OVERNIGHT HOURS AT A SHELTER FOR PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS. AND IT IS PROPOSED BY THE CHAIRMAN. MADAM CHAIR. AND BECAUSE IT IS REPURPOSING FUNDS THAT ARE EXISTING, IT IS A NET ZERO INCREASE. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THIS IS A REALLY IMPORTANT STEP THAT FOLLOWS ON THE WORK THAT WE DID WITH OUR FIRST RESPONDER HEALTH ONE LAST YEAR. ONE THING THAT WE KNOW IS THAT IN THE SHELTERS, THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO NEED IMMEDIATE RADICAL ATTENTION BUT THEY DON’T NEED A TRIP TO HARBORVIEW. THE $2000 TRIP AS WE REFERRED TO IT. WE HAVE PEOPLE THAT ARE AVAILABLE AND DESC HAS SOMEBODY ON STAFF DURING MOST DAYS BUT THEY RECOGNIZE THAT HAVING SOMEBODY WHO IS AVAILABLE IN THE EVENING WILL REALLY REDUCE THE NUMBER OF CALLS. OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT, FIRST RESPONDERS, FULLY SUPPORT THIS. WE HAD $44,000, $44,400 LAST YEAR. WE HAD BUDGETED IN THE PAST FOR HANDWASHING STATIONS BUT INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, NEITHER PARKS NOR SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES FELT LIKE IT WAS SOMETHING THEY WANTED TO PURSUE BECAUSE IT REALLY WOULD BE TEMPORARY. THEY WERE CONCERNED THAT IT REALLY WASN’T SOLVING ANY PROBLEMS. I GRABBED IT BACK. WE ARE GOING TO APPLY THAT FOR THIS UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR. I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO MAYOR DURKIN BECAUSE NOT ONLY DOES SHE CONCUR WITH THIS, SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE WILL PUT MONEY IN HER BUDGET TO CONTINUE IT. AND THE DELIGHT IS THAT OTHER ORGANIZATIONS ARE SEEING THIS AS REAL MONEY SAVERS. BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE OUR FIREFIGHTERS HAVING TO RESPOND WITH TWO TRUCKS. EIGHT FIREFIGHTERS TO TAKE CARE OF ONE PERSON. WE ARE REALLY ABLE TO USE THE NURSE TO HELP US THROUGH THAT. UNION GOSPEL MISSION CAME AND úSAID THE SAME THING. THEY ARE INTERESTED IN HAVING IT ON SITE. IT WILL REDUCE THE NUMBER OF CALLS HERE TOO. THANK YOU FOR SETTING THIS UP. DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD? >>YES. ONE MINOR CHANGE. IT IS PURELY TECHNICAL TO ENSURE THIS ORIENTS TO OUR ACCOUNTING SYSTEM IN THE BUDGET SUMMARY LEVEL B CO CODE COLUMN. THE FUND WAS LEFT OUT SO WHERE IT SAYS, INSTEAD OF ESSENTIALLY THE VOICE AMENDMENT, INSTEAD OF THIS, USE 001800 — BL, HS 3000. IT IS JUST A DIFFERENT THING. >>THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT. GOODNESS KNOWS I WOULD NEVER HAVE PICKED THAT UP. I APPRECIATE YOUR HELP, SO NOW WE HAVE AMENDMENT 3 THAT WILL PROVIDE THIS 44,400 FOR AN EMERGENCY SERVICES NURSE. AND WE HAVE GOT THE CORRECT NUMBERS HERE? UNDER THE BCL CODE? I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE THAT WE PASS AMENDMENT NUMBER THREE. >>ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. ANY OPPOSED? NONE. SO WE WILL MOVE FORWARD WITH THAT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND THANK YOU CENTRAL STAFF FOR HELPING US IDENTIFY THAT THE SOURCE. WE APPRECIATE THAT. OKAY. AMENDMENT NUMBER FOUR IS THE LEAD LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSESSMENT DIVERSION DATABASE. IF YOU LIKE TO INTRODUCE IT, I HAVE A FEW THINGS I WOULD LIKE TO ADD AS WELL. >>THANK YOU. SO THIS ESSENTIALLY TRANSFERS $137,000 FROM THE GENERAL FUND TO THE SEATTLE I.T. DEPARTMENT TO HIGHER TEMPORARY STAFF ON THE SHORT-TERM BASIS TO WORK ON THE LEAD DATABASE. IN ESSENCE. >>GOOD. WE HAD TRACY, TIM AND KATRINA THIS MORNING FROM LEEDS SPEAK TO IT. THEY ARE STILL HERE. AT LEAST SOMEBODY IS STILL HERE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. JESSE IS HERE TOO. THANK YOU. GOOD TO SEE YOU AGAIN. WELCOME HOME. I JUST WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE HOW IMPORTANT LEAD IS AND WE KNOW THAT THE HARM REDUCTION MODEL IS SOMETHING THAT IS WORKING. IT IS GETTING INTERNATIONAL ATTENTION. AND AT THE SAME TIME, WE CONTINUE TO HEAR. WE ARE NOT SURE ABOUT THE OUTCOME. HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE ARE ENGAGED IN THIS BUT THERE IS CONCERN THAT WE ARE NOT GETTING THE RESULTS. WE ARE NOT SEEING THE RESULTS AND THAT SOMETIMES CASE MANAGERS DON’T GET HOOKED UP WITH INDIVIDUALS. POLICE ARE SOMETIMES CONFUSED ABOUT, IF AN INDIVIDUAL IS INVOLVED IN THE PROGRAM, THERE IS FURTHER CONCERNS OF WHAT THEY CAN DO, I THINK THIS DATABASE IS SOMETHING THAT EVERYBODY IS ASKING FOR. WE WANT TO SEE IT MOVED FORWARD. AGAIN, I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE KING COUNTY PROSECUTING ATTORNEY DAN ZETTERBERG FOR HIS WORK AND HELP IN THIS. AND THIS IS A REAL CREATIVE EFFORT TO TRY TO GET PEOPLE WHO ARE CURRENTLY ON HOUSED OR ARE FINDING THEMSELVES WITH DRUG ADDICTION COME UP WITH LOW- LEVEL PROSTITUTION EMMA FINDING DIFFICULTY IN LIVING. THAT THIS IS ONE WAY OUR CITY IS ABLE TO PUT OUR ARMS AROUND THEM AND HELP IMPROVE CONDITIONS FOR THEM AND FOR THE STREETS IN WHICH THEY ARE LIVING. SO I AM A HUGE FAN OF LEAD. I WANT TO SEE US MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS. AND THIS WILL GIVE US SOME ADDITIONAL MONEY OF 137,000. $102 TO HELP WITH THE ADMINISTRATION WITHIN OUR IDT, OUR INFORMATION I.T. DEPARTMENT. TO HELP THEM COORDINATE THE WORK WITH THE GRANTS THAT THE LEAD PROGRAM HAS ALREADY ACCOMPLISHED. WITH THAT, I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE AMENDMENT NUMBER FOUR. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. ANY OPPOSED? NO EXTENSION. AND WE HAVE NO MMN ON THAT ONE. RIGHT? OKAY. SO MMM 4 PASSES. LET’S MOVE ONTO AIDS MEMORIAL PATHWAY. I CAN SPEAK TO THIS AS WELL. >>JUST FOR PURPOSES OF OF ORIENTATION, IT IS OF PAGE NUMBER EIGHT OF 19. >>THANK YOU. >>WHAT THIS DOES IS IT APPROPRIATE $100,000 FROM THE GENERAL FUND AND THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS. TO SUPPORT THE AIDS MEMORIAL PATHWAY PHASE 2 NARRATIVE PROJECT. >>OKAY SO I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND THANKS TO COUNCILMEMBER HERBOLD, WHO HAS BEEN WORKING WITH ME ON THIS. AND OUR FORMER COLLEAGUE, COUNCIL MEMBER TOM RASMUSSEN IS LEADING THIS, COCHAIRING ON CAPITOL HILL, I MET WITH HIM AND MICHELLE HASSON RECENTLY. THIS IS GOING TO RECOGNIZE MANY OF THE PERSONAL STORIES, ALL OF THE IMPACT ON THE CAPITOL HILL COMMUNITY WITH THOSE WHO HAVE AIDS AND HIV AIDS. THIS IS A PHASE PROJECTS THAT WILL BE UP NEAR CAL ANDERSON PARK. I THINK THAT JUST RECOGNIZING THE TRAUMA THOSE FOLKS WHO HAVE SURVIVED THIS TERRIBLE DISEASE AND THE IMPACT ON THE COMMUNITY. THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO RECOGNIZE WHAT THE COMMUNITY HAS GONE THROUGH AND MANY OF THE STORIES WHERE PEOPLE HAVE AVAILED. SO I AM SUPPORTIVE OF THIS. WE WILL BE PUTTING IN $100,000 TO LET THEM MOVE FORWARD NOW. NOT WAIT UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR. I BELIEVE THE MAYOR’S OFFICE IS ALSO SUPPORTIVE, WE WILL ADD THAT TO HER BUDGET. GOOD. ANY COMMENTS? >>OKAY. VERY GOOD. DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING? >>A SLIGHT NOTE IN THE NARRATIVE SAYS 75,000. JUST KNOW THAT IT IS 100,000. AS THE ACTUAL AMENDMENT SAYS. >>THAT SAID 75,000. I FOUND OUT THAT WE WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO $100,000 WORKING WITH AND NOBLE. WE JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THE PROJECT COULD MOVE FORWARD. SO WITH THAT, AMENDMENT NUMBER FIVE, I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE TO PASS THIS TODAY. >>OKAY. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. NONE OPPOSED. NO EXTENSIONS. THANK YOU FOR THAT. AND THANK YOU TO FORMER COUNCILMEMBER TOM RASMUSSEN, MICHELLE HASSON AND ALL OF THOSE SUPPORTING THE PROJECT. OKAY. A MEMO NUMBER SIX, IT IS A PROVISO ON FUNDS PROVIDED FOR HUMAN SERVICES CONTRACTS AND COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA, THIS IS YOURS. TOM, DO YOU WANT TO INTRODUCE IT? >>YES. SO THIS IS ON PAGE 9 OF 19. WHAT THIS DOES IS, IT DOESN’T RESULT IN A NET BUDGET INCREASE. IT ESTABLISHES A PROVISO ON A 268,000 IN THE HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT AND THE GENERAL FUND. IT RESTRICTS THOSE FUNDS FOR USE TO SUPPORT HUMAN SERVICES CONTRACT PROVIDERS AND INFLATIONARY INCREASES FOR THOSE CONTRACTS THAT ARE NOT SUPPORTED BY THE GENERAL FUND. >>COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA? >>THAT’S OKAY. I FIRST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP AND YOUR SUPPORT AS WE HAVE BEEN WORKING TO GET THE HSD INFLATIONARY ADJUSTMENT INCLUDED, NOT JUST IN ONE YEAR’S BUDGET BUT TO HAVE THE BASE LEGISLATION. YOU HAVE BEEN VERY SUPPORTIVE AND HAVE ASKED ALL OF THE RIGHT QUESTIONS AND MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT CONTINUITY AND STABILITY FOR THE FUND. I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE WORK OF THE COMMUNITY HAS DONE. IT HAS BEEN A TEN-YEAR EFFORT AS WE HAVE HEARD OVER THE LAST YEAR OR SO PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR THIS INFLATIONARY ADJUSTMENT TO BE INCLUDED. WE ARE EXCITED TO BRING THIS FORWARD. WE HAVE TALKED A LOT ABOUT IT OVER THE LAST YEAR. I WON’T GO INTO THE DETAILS BUT IT IS VERY EXCITING TO BE ABLE TO MAKE SURE THAT WITH THIS, THERE WAS A SET-ASIDE FOR A SMALL SET OF CONTRACTS FOR VARIOUS REASONS LAST YEAR. IT WAS APPROXIMATELY $268,000. IT WAS UNUSED. SO THE EXCITING PART IS THAT WE ARE ABLE TO NOW APPLY THIS TO THE HSD CONTRACTS GOING FORWARD AND ENSURE THAT THE LEGISLATION AS DESIRED, IT IS APPLIED TO THE CPI INCREASES THE FOR THE PROVIDER CONTRACT. AT THE SAME TIME, WE AFFIRM OUR COMMITMENT FOR THE WORK THESE ORGANIZATIONS DO. THE WORKERS WHO ARE CONDUCTING THE SERVICES AND THE CRITICAL SOCIAL SAFETY NET THEY PROVIDE TO THOSE WHO ARE UNFILTERED AND ELDERS, USE, EXPERIENCING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, SEXUAL ASSAULT SURVIVORS. AND MORE. SUGGEST A HUGE AMOUNT OF APPRECIATION FOR THE ONGOING PRESENCE HERE TODAY AND OVER THE LAST YEAR AND A HALF. +10 YEARS. >>THANK YOU FOR THAT. ANY FURTHER COMMENTS? THEN I WILL MOVE WE ADOPT AMENDMENT NUMBER SIX. OKAY? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. NONE OPPOSED. NO EXTENSIONS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AMENDMENT NUMBER SIX PASSES. A MEMO NUMBER SEVEN IS A HIGHLAND PARK INTERSECTION IMPROVEMENTS. I KNOW THIS IS COUNCILMEMBER HERBOLD IS WITH THE SUPPORT FROM COUNCILMEMBER GONZALEZ. >> SO PAGE NUMBER 10 OF 19. AMENDMENT NUMBER SEVEN DOES NOT AFFECT THE CURRENT YEAR’S BUDGET. IT DOES MAKE CHANGES TO THE CIP AND IT INCLUDES ATTACHMNTS OF THOSE CHANGES. IT UPDATE THE TITLE AND DESCRIPTION OF THE HIGHLAND PARK CIP PROJECT TO REFLECT THE DESIGN OPTIONS UNDER CONSIDERATION BY THE SEATTLE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY. THE APARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION HAS IDENTIFIED 3000 OF LOCAL MATCHING FUNDS TO SUPPORT STATE RANT UP LOCATIONS AND ANTICIPATE FOR THIS YEAR. THE AMENDMENT SHOWS THE LOCAL MATCH AND POTENTIAL GRANTS IN 2020. IT SHOWS THE DECREASE IN THE ZERO CIP PROJECT. >>OKAY. I DON’T THINK THERE IS MUCH HERE THAT WE NEED TO DISCUSS. AS YOU SAID, IT IS AN EFFORT TO IMPROVE THE NEIGHBORHOODS. IT HAS BEEN PLANNED. IT HAS GONE THROUGH VARIOUS COMMUNITY PROCESSES. AND IT IS A VISION ZERO CAPITAL PROJECT. ANY FOR THE QUESTIONS? >>YOU ARE A WEST SEATTLEITE, YOU ARE PROBABLY SUPPORTING THIS TOO. >>IF THERE ARE NO FURTHER QUESTIONS, I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE A MEMO NUMBER SEVEN. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. NONE OPPOSED. NO EXTENSIONS. OKAY. NEXT ITEM IS ATTACHMENT EIGHT. WE DO HAVE ANOTHER ONE OF THESE BUDGET NUMBER CHANGES THAT I MIGHT AS WELL BRING UP IN THAT BSL. >>IF I COULD, ATTACHMENT A, THOSE WERE ACTUALLY JUST THE CIP LOGIC PAGES. IF WE MOVE TO PAGE 15 OF 19, WE WILL GET TO THE NEXT ONE. THOSE ATTACHMENTS WERE ASSOCIATED WITH THE TRANSPORTATION. >>I HAVE AMENDMENT NUMBER EIGHT. THERE WAS ANOTHER CHANGE. >>THAT IS CORRECT. >>I CAN COVER THAT. SO THEM IT NUMBER EIGHT ON PAGE 15 OF 19. >>WHERE IS THE UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS PEOPLE? >>GREAT. THIS IS YOURS. >>SO THIS APPROPRIATE $125,000 FROM THE GENERAL FUND TO ALLOW THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS TO SUPPORT IMPROVEMENTS. TO NONPROFIT COMMUNITY CENTERS THAT PROVIDE MULTIPLE ARTS, CULTURAL AND EDUCATION GROUPS WITH FREE AND REDUCED RENTAL SPACE. IT WOULD BE SUPPLEMENTAL TO A STATE DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE GRANT AND PRIVATE DONATIONS TO CONSTRUCT THE ELEVATOR AT THAT SITE. >>VERY GOOD. DID YOU WANT TO HAVE US CHANGE THAT BSL, THE BCL CODE? SO I THINK YOU ALL HAVE AN ATTACHMENT HERE. AND INSTEAD OF BOD AND 1330, 001 ZERO — PO — THE END THAT 1330. HOW DID WE DO? VERY GOOD. THAT WILL BE ADDED TO BUDGET, AMENDMENT EIGHT UNDER THE BUDGET SUMMARY LEVEL AND I JUST WANT TO SPEAK BRIEFLY TO THIS. I THINK COUNCIL COLLEAGUES DURING PUBLIC COMMENT, A NUMBER OF THE FOLKS IN THESE LOVELY BLACK SHIRTS SPOKE VERY ARTICULATELY ABOUT THE NEED FOR THE ELEVATOR TO PROVIDE ACCESS. THIS IS NOT ONLY AN ADA APPROVED , BUT FROM ALL AGES AND ABILITIES THAT WE ARE PROMOTING. MAKING SURE THAT BUILDINGS LIKE THIS, WHICH ARE SUCH A COMMUNITY GEM, HAVE ACCESS AND ARE AVAILABLE. YOU TALKED ABOUT THE GRANDPARENTS THAT WANT TO COME AND SEE THE CONCERTS OR SEE THE DANCE RECITALS. SO I AM A FAN OF THIS. I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE AMENDMENT NUMBER EIGHT. OKAY? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. ABLE, DID YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO IT? IT IS YOUR DISTRICT. >>I DID WANT TO SPEAK TO IT BUT I WANTED TO CLARIFY WITH YOU MADAM CHAIR, BECAUSE ONE, MY DISTRICT OFFICE IS INSIDE THE UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS CENTER. DO I ABSTAIN? >>NO. >>I WANT TO SPEAK TO THE UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS CENTER, IT IS NOT JUST WHERE, IT HAS BEEN A COMMUNITY TREASURE FOR DISTRICT 4. AND ALSO FOR NORTHEAST SEATTLE. THIS IS ONE OF THE FIRST REQUEST THAT WE HAD RECEIVED IN OUR OFFICE WITH REGARDS TO THE IMPORTANCE OF IT. I AM REALLY EXCITED TO SUPPORT IT. >>THANK YOU. >>I WANT TO THANK COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA AS WELL FOR HER WORK ON THIS. >> RING PUBLIC COMMENT, ONE OF OUR SPEAKERS TALKED ABOUT A LITTLE GIRL WHO WAS IN A PROGRAM AND COULDN’T GET UP A LIFT BECAUSE THE LIFT WAS BROKEN AND HAD TO LITERALLY CRAWL UP THE STAIRS. NOTABLE TIMES. IT BREAKS YOUR HEART BECAUSE, TO IMAGINE THAT VISION. WE ARE MOVING FORWARD WITH THIS. I WILL TAKE A VOTE AGAIN. ABLE, THANK YOU FOR SPEAKING. >>COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA, THANK YOU FOR SPEAKING. >>I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO INCLUDE THIS IN THE SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET. WE HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GO OUT TO EACH DISTRICT COURSE BONDING WITH THE MONTH OF THE YEARS THAT WE WERE IN THE FOR 4 MONTHS 4. I HAVE THE CHANCE TO MEET WITH THE FOLKS AT UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS THEN AND HEARD ABOUT THE NEED FOR THIS LIST. OR FOR AN ACTUAL ELEVATOR TO BE INCLUDED AT UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS. I WAS REALLY EXCITED TO HELP WORK WITH THEM AND NOW THE NEW REPRESENTATIVES OF DISTRICT 4 TO BRING THIS AMENDMENT FORD. WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE AS WELL, WHILE WE ARE WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SOME OF THE STATE PARTNERS, AND OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY PARTNERS, THEY HAVE RAISED 70% OF THE CAMPAIGN GOAL OF THE 700,000 PER MONTH NEEDED. úTHEY HAVE LITTLE BIT LEFT TO RAISE. THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT WAY TO BE A GOOD PARTNER FROM THE CITY TO THE STATE AND OTHER LOCAL PARTNRS AS WELL. AND I DID HAVE THE CHANCE TO LISTEN TO YOUR TESTIMONY. I WAS ON MY WAY OUT AND I HEARD ABOUT THE STORY WITH THE INDIVIDUAL CALLING OF THE STAIRS. IT WAS HEARTBREAKING. SOME OF THE STORIES THEY ALL MENTIONED, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HOW THIS IS THE LACK OF AN ELEVATOR, IT IS TRULY A BARRIER NOT JUST FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO TAKE A CLASS THERE BUT FOR THE GRANDPARENTS AND THE PARENTS AND THE SIBLINGS THAT WANT TO COME AND WATCH THE KIDS OR THE PARENTS WHO ARE TAKING PART IN SOME OF THE AMAZING CLASSES THE HAIR. THEY HAVE WHAT OVER 160 ARTS AND ARE HOME TO THE 14 ORGANIZATIONS AND OUR GOOD COLLEAGUES COUNCIL OFFICE APPARENTLY. THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE IT IS TRULY ACCESSIBLE AND THAT IT IS A COMMUNITY GEM ACCESSIBLE TO THE FULL COMMUNITY, WE ARE REALLY EXCITED TO BRING THIS FORWARD AND I ALSO WANT TO UNDERSCORE OUR OPERATION FOR THE WORK THEY DO TO MAKE THE SPACE AFFORDABLE. 50-70% BELOW RATE FOR THESE SPACES FOR OUR COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS. TO HAVE SPACE IN THIS FACILITY IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT ASSET TO AN INCREASINGLY EXPENSIVE CITY, INCLUDING FOR NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS. GIVEN THE COST OF RETAIL SPACE IN THE CITY. AND APPLAUD THEM FOR THE WORK THEY DID LAST NIGHT. COUNCILMEMBER PACHECO AND I HAD AN OPPORTUNITY PARTICIPATE IN A COMMITTEE FORUM IN WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE TO HAVE SAFE PARKING LOTS AND WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO HAVE THIS AS AN ADDITIONAL TOOL IN OUR TOOLKIT AS WE TRY TO ADDRESS GETTING THINGS INTO SAFE PLACES TO SLEEP AT NIGHT. IF THEY’RE ON SHELTERED. THEY HAVE SHOWN LEADERSHIP ALREADY WITH THE TYPE OF WORK THEY DO INSIDE THE BUILDING AS NOW THEY ARE EXPRESSING AN INTEREST IN SHOWING LEADERSHIP FOR HOW THEY USE THE FULL SPACE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING AS WELL. AND TO HAVE BEEN INCLUSIVE IN PROACTIVITY AND ENGAGING THE COMMUNITY. WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE AND WHY IT IS IMPORTANT ACROSS THE CITY. HUGE TURNOUT LAST NIGHT. STANDING ROOM IN THE BACK ONLY. I APPRECIATE THE LEADERSHIP AND I AM EXCITED ABOUT THIS AMENDMENT. >>THINK OF THAT. THINK YOU BOTH OF YOU. COUNCILMEMBER PACHECO, I WANT TO SAY IT HAS BEEN AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE WORKING WITH YOU. I APPRECIATE ALL YOU’RE DOING FOR DISTRICT 4. GOOD. WITH THAT, WOULD YOU LIKE TO MOVE THIS? >>PLEASE. >>I MOVE AMENDMENT NUMBER EIGHT. >>VERY GOOD. THANK YOU. SECOND? >>ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE. NOT OPPOSE. NO EXTENSIONS. SO ARE AT UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS ACCESSIBILITY IMPROVEMENT HAS PASSED. THAT WILL GO IN FRONT OF THE FULL COMMITTEE ON MONDAY. [APPLAUSE] CONGRATULATIONS. BIG THANKS TO ALL OF YOU. ALL RIGHT. A MEMO NUMBER NINE IS THE FOOD BANK SUPPORT. >>SEVEN NUMBER NINE IS ON PAGE 16 OF 19. THIS ACTUALLY MODIFIES THE SUPPLEMENTAL ORDINANCE AS TRANSMITTED. SO THAT IS A LEGISLATION INCLUDED $1.2 MILLION FOR FOOD BANK FACILITY IMPROVEMENTS. WHAT THIS DOES IS, A PORTION OF THAT WAS UNALLOCATED. IT ALLOCATES $85,000 OF THAT AMOUNT TO PROVIDE SUPPORTS TO FOOD BANK ORGANIZATIONS BENEFITING THE NUTRITIONAL NEEDS OF LOW-INCOME PEOPLE IN NORTHEAST SEATTLE. >>VERY GOOD. TO WE HAVE ANY COMMENTS ON THIS? >>COUNCILMEMBER PACHECO IT IS YOURS. >>AGAIN, THIS IS, BEING IN THE DISTRICT AND I CAME ACROSS THIS REQUEST FOR THAT YOU DISTRICT FOOD BANK. IT HAS COMMUNITY PANDERS THAT THIS. OFFERING COMMUNITY PANTRIES LIKE THESE AND I THINK IT IS A TYPE OF PARTNERSHIP WE WANT TO THE INCREASE FRESH FOOD ACCESS IN PLACES WITH SUCH LIMITED OPTIONS. IT IS SPREAD BETWEEN DISTRICT 4 AND DISTRICT 5. WE KNOW IT IS A FOOD DESERT. TO BE ABLE TO PROVIDE FOR LOW INCOME FAMILIES. IT IS IMPORTANT TO US AS A CITY, AS A COMMUNITY, AND AS A DISTRICT. ANY OTHER COMMENTS? WE WOULD LIKE TO MOVE AMENDMENT 9. >>I WILL SECOND. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF AMENDMENT NUMBER NINE SAY YES. NONE OPPOSE. NO EXTENSIONS. HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT WILL HAVE SOME ADDITIONAL FOOD BANK SUPPORT IN A PRETTY LARGE AMOUNT. VERY GOOD. I JUST WANT TO ASK HERE, WE HAVE 1.7 AND THEN WE HAVE ONE ASK. WE ARE STILL IN A MEMO NUMBER TIME. JUST CLARIFYING PAGE 3 AND HOW THIS IS WORKING. >>YES. I CAN SPEAK TO THAT. THE FIRST STEP IN THIS IS TO REDUCE THE BILL AS PROPOSED BY $85,000. THAT WAS AN EXISTING LINE OF APPROPRIATION IN THE BELL. I REDUCES IT FROM 1.22 1.115. THOUSAND. AND THE NEXT STEP IS TO ADD THE NEW APPROPRIATION OF $85,000. WHICH IS ADDED THROUGH THIS AMENDMENT. >>OKAY, SO ARE WE ACTUALLY TRANSFERRING FUNDS FROM ONE BUDGET ITEM TO ANOTHER. >>ESSENTIALLY, YES. IT IS BUDGET NEUTRAL. >>SO THE ORIGINAL TRANSMITTED BUDGET, IT PUT $1.2 MILLION AND FOOD BANKS AND LEFT IT BROAD. IT APPROPRIATES THE $1.2 MILLION, 85,000 OF IT WILL DIRECTLY BE USED WITH UNIVERSITY. >>THAT WAS UNAPPROPRIATED OUT OF AND UNAPPROPRIATED AMOUNT OF MONEY. IT DOESN’T HARM THE BALANCING OF THE BUDGET. >>VERY GOOD. ALL RIGHT. THE NEXT WE HAVE OUR GREEN JANITOR EDUCATION PROGRAM. IT IS A MEMO NUMBER 10. TOM, WOULD YOU INTRODUCE IT? COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO IT. >>PAGE 17 OF 19. THIS ADDS $35,000 FROM THE GENERAL FUND TO THE OFFICE OF SUSTAINABILITY ENVIRONMENT TO IMPLEMENT A GREEN JANITOR’S EDUCATION PROGRAM. >>THANK YOU. COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA? >> THANK YOU VERY MUCH MADAM CHAIR. I WOULD LIKE THE THANKS THE FOLKS HERE AND HAVE BEEN HERE TALKING ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THE GREEN JANITOR EDUCATION PROGRAM. THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO PILOT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE TO LEAD BY EXAMPLE. OUTSIDE OF JUST CITY BUILDINGS. TO WORK IN PARTNERSHIP WITH GREEN WELDING OWNERS AND WITH OUR LABOR PARTNERS GO I WANT TO THANK COMING UP BOWL AND YOLANDA WHOLE FROM CENTRAL STAFF WHO HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH OUR OFFICE. WITH SEATTLE 2030. WITH THE STAGE AND GOT GREEN TO HAVE ALL HELPED TO BRING FORWARD THIS CONCEPT. SEATTLE HAS BEEN A LEADER IN HOW WE INSTITUTE GREEN BUILDING POLICIES INTERNALLY FOR A VERY LONG TIME. HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEAD THE NATION IN ESTABLISHING THE MUNICIPAL GREEN BUILDING POLICY IN 2000. WE REQUIRE THE CITY FUNDED PROJECTS AND RENOVATIONS OVER 5000 FT.B2 OF OCCUPIED SPACE. ACHIEVE LEED SILVER RATINGS. THAT WAS A HUGE WIN. I THINK THAT IT ALSO WAS A PAT ON THE BACK TO SEATTLE FOR THE EFFORTS WE MANDATED INTO THOUSAND 10 TO CREATE ENERGY BENCHMARKING FOR REPORTING ON NONRESIDENTIAL AND MULTIFAMILY BUILDINGS OVER 20,000 FT.B2. HERE WE ARE, WE HAVE PASSED SOME UPDATES TO ORDINANCES REQUIRING BUILDING TUNEUPS IN 2016. AND WE DID SOME WORK LAST YEAR TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR ENERGY EFFICIENCY STANDARDS WERE MET, ESPECIALLY AT SEATTLE CITY LIGHT OWNED PROPERTY. WE HAVE BEEN A LEADER IN MANY WAYS, ESPECIALLY LOOKING INTERNALLY AT OUR OWN BUILDINGS. THE CLEAN ENERGY STANDARDS AND GREEN BUILDING STANDARDS. THE EXCITING PART ABOUT THIS PROJECT IS IT ALLOWS US TO EXPAND THE VISION TO OUR PRIVATE SECTOR PARTNERS AND WORKING PARTNERSHIP WITH LABOR UNIONS AND ENVIRONMENTALISTS AS YOU HEARD TODAY. FROM STEPHANIE FROM THE BLUE- GREEN ALIGNMENT. ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE WORKERS AND THE LABOR MOVEMENT TO FIGURE OUT HOW WE CAN CONTINUE TO ADVANCE THIS. IT IS AN EXCITING OPPORTUNITY TO TRAIN AROUND 30-50 JANITORS IN 3-4 LEAD BUILDINGS IN SEATTLE WITH 30 OUR CURRICULUM ON GREEN CLEANING, INCLUDING ENERGY, WATER, AND LANDFILL REDUCTION TECHNOLOGIES. IMPROVE THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF JANITORIAL STAFF. I THINK IT IS GOOD THAT WE ARE MOVING FORWARD. IF WE ARE ABLE TO TODAY, TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE THIS PILOT UP AND RUNNING THIS YEAR. IF WE ARE ABLE TO AT THIS PILOT UP AND RUNNING THIS YEAR, AND ACCOMPLISH SOME REALLY GREAT BENCHMARKS BEFORE THE END OF QUARTER ONE, WE CAN HOPEFULLY TAKE IT MORE TO SCALE NEXT YEAR. I AM REALLY EXCITED ABOUT BEING ABLE TO FOLLOW LOS ANGELES’S LEAD. TWO DOZEN 14 IS WHEN THEY STARTED THE PROGRAM. ALREADY 500 JANITORS HAVE GRADUATED FROM THE PROGRAM. SO THIS IS A HUGE OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO IMPROVE THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF WORKERS AND THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR BUILDINGS AND MEET THE GOALS WE HAVE ESTABLISHED FOR LONG TIME IN THE CITY OF BEING A LEADER ON GREEN ENERGY AND SUPPORTING WORKERS. I WANT TO THANK, ESPECIALLY THE OFFICE OF SUSTAINABILITY AS THEY ARE ENTHUSIASTICALLY SUPPORTIVE AND APPRECIATE ALL OF THE SUPPORT THAT WE HAVE RECEIVED FROM THE MAYOR’S OFFICE AND THE AGENCIES AS WELL HAVE WE LOOKED AT THIS TO THE LENS OF NOT JUST SUPPORTING WORKERS BUT SUPPORTING THE ENTIRE CITIES COMMITMENT TO WORKERS AND THE ENVIRONMENT. >>DO WE HAVE A SIMILAR. HIM INTERNALLY? DO WE TRAIN OUR OWN JANITORS AND CUSTODIANS ON THIS? >>IS THERE SOMEBODY FROM SPU? >>I DID SEE THIS. >>I WOULD LOVE TO MAKE SURE THAT IF WE HAVE A SIMILAR PROGRAM, WE SHOULD BE LEADING FIRST BY EXAMPLE. >>WE SHOULD FOLLOW UP WITH THE OFFICE OF SUSTAINABILITY. >>COULD YOU JUST, I WILL SUPPORT YOU OF COURSE IN THIS. BUT WOULD YOU DESCRIBE WHY WE ARE PAYING FOR PRIVATE EMPLOYERS TO DO THIS? >>IS IT JUST TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO DO IT? IS IT AS CONTRASTED? >>I THINK YOU FOR THAT. I WONDER IF I MIGHT BE ABLE TO ASK OUR FRIENDS IN THE AUDIENCE WHO ARE WORKING ON THIS PARTNERSHIP. >>PLEASE ASK THEM TO STEP UP TO THE MICROPHONE. >>NOT TO PUT YOU ALL ON THE SPOT BUT I JUST DEFLECTED THAT A LITTLE BIT. >>SO MY QUESTION WAS, IF WE ARE BUDGETING $35,000, ESSENTIALLY FOR THE BENEFIT OF PRIVATE EMPLOYERS TO TRAIN THEIR JANITORS AND CUSTODIANS IN THIS, I AM WONDERING, IS THIS AN APPROPRIATE EXPENDITURE OF BROADER TAXPAYER MONEY TO GIVE TO PRIVATE BUSINESSES AND BUILDINGS TO DO THIS TRAINING? MAYBE WE CAN TALK ABOUT HOW WE ARE LEVERAGING THE MONEY? >>COUNCILMEMBER BAGSHAW, MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE, WE SEE THIS AS A SEED TO HELP MEET SEATTLE’S GOALS. COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA SAID THIS IS A PILOT PROJECT WE WANT TO LIFT OFF THE GROUND. WITH PLANS TO SUSTAIN THE PROGRAM, MOVE ON TO PRIVATE FUNDING AND EMPLOYER BLACKED TRAINING. THIS IS REALLY THE SPARK THAT GETS IT ALL MOVING. >>THIS IS A PILOT AND WE WILL, DASHES >>THE COMBINATION OF LOOKING AT LOS ANGELES IS EXAMPLE. WHEN THEY IMPLEMENTED THE PROGRAM IN 2014, THEY SHOWED THE JANITOR PROGRAM REDUCED ENERGY CONSUMPTION AND REDUCE WATER USAGE. IT HAS A POSITIVE IMPACT ON THE SUSTAINABILITY OF THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN THE CITY. ALSO, I AM WEARING MY HAT AS ENERGY CHAIR. WITH SEATTLE CITY LIGHT, I THINK THIS IS WELL IN ALIGNMENT WITH OUR GOALS TO HELP HOLDING OWNERS WHO ARE IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR. TO BE MORE EFFICIENT WITH THE ENERGY CONSUMPTION. WHILE I DON’T REPRESENT SPU, THAT IS COUNCIL MEMBER, COUNCILMEMBER HERBOLD, WE ARE ALL LOOKING FOR WAYS TO REDUCE CONSUMPTION SO WE CAN BE BETTER CONSERVATIONISTS. >>GOOD STEWARDS. >>IN LINE WITH OUR GOOD COMMITTED TO HELPING THOSE PRIVATE PARTNERS AS WELL. >>VERY GOOD. THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THIS FORWARD. THANK YOU FOR STEPPING UP TO THE MICROPHONE TWO. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? COMMENTS? ALL RIGHT, I WILL MOVE AMENDMENT NUMBER 10. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. ANY OPPOSED? NO. NO EXTENSIONS. THANK YOU FOR THE GREEN JANITOR EDUCATION PROGRAM. COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. AND IF YOU WILL DESCRIBE AMENDMENT 11 FOR US. >>TOM JUST HAD TO STEP AWAY FOR A MINUTE. AMENDMENT 11 WOULD APPROPRIATE $100,000 IN GENERAL FUNDS TO PAY FOR ONE-TIME CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS TO AN ORGANIZATION THAT PROVIDES CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE SERVICES TO NATIVE AND INDIGENOUS COMMUNITIES. THIS IS SPONSORED BY COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA. >>A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS YOU AND I TALKED ABOUT YESTERDAY, IF YOU COULD, COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA, TELL US WHETHER YOU CONNECTED WITH COUNCILMEMBER JUAREZ’S OFFICE. IF THAT WAS POSSIBLE. AND ALSO IF THIS IS ONE TIME , NOT ONGOING. >>SO ON THE ONGOING, WE HAVE AMENDED THE AMENDMENT. FOR POSSIBLE CONSIDERATION TODAY, TO REALLY FOCUS ON JUST THE CAPITAL CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS. AND NOT THE ONGOING OPERATING COSTS. WE DO KNOW THAT THERE IS A ROBUST PROCESS AT EACH OF OUR PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS. WHILE THE SEATTLE, VARIOUS NATIVE GROUPS WE DO PARTNER WITH, INCLUDING FOLKS AT UNITED NATIVES OF ALL TRIBES, BUT THEY DO HAVE CONTACT WITH HST. IT IS IMPORTANT AS YOU SUGGESTED TO LOOK AT THE ONE TIME FUNDING, RECOGNIZE WE DON’T KNOW WHAT OUR BUDGET WILL ULTIMATELY LOOK LIKE AT THE END OF THE YEAR. ON THE FIRST QUESTION YOU ASKED ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT WE HAD ONE TIME FUNDING HERE, WHAT YOU SEE IN FRONT OF YOU IS A REQUEST FOR $100,000. 82,000 OF THAT WOULD GO TOWARDS RESTROOM RENOVATIONS WHICH INCLUDE COMPLETE RENOVATION OF THE MEN’S ROOM DOWNSTAIRS. AND RENOVATIONS OF WOMEN’S ROOM, DELETION OF A WALK-IN FREEZER AND INSTALLATION, A STANDING FREEZER. THAT IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT POTENTIALLY COULD BE DONE IF WE LOOKED AT THAT. THERE IS ALSO AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US THEN TO LOOK AT THE $70,000 FOR APPROPRIATE FREEZERS AND REFRIGERATORS AND STOVES. IF FOLKS HAVE BEEN TO DAYBREAK AS AN EXAMPLE, THEY KNOW THAT IT HASN’T BEEN UPDATED SINCE THE 70s. IT IS A GREAT CULTURAL GEM. CHECKING IN TO SEE IF OUR TEAM HAD A CHANCE TO TALK TO COUNCILMEMBER JUAREZ, IT DOESN’T SOUND LIKE WE HAVE. I’M NOT SURE CENTRAL STAFF HAD A CHANCE TO HEAR THE REQUEST. I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT. I DID NOT HAVE A CHANCE TO DO THAT. >>I KNOW IT IS BUSY. I’M GOING TO GO OUT ON A LIMB AND BELIEVE THAT COUNCILMEMBER JUAREZ WILL BE SUPPORTING IT. >>I WILL DEFINITELY REACH OUT TO HER IMMEDIATELY AFTER THIS. >> WILL LET HER KNOW THAT WE ARE MOVING FORWARD WITH THIS. >>IT IS JUST A REQUEST THAT SOMETIMES I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT AS WE ARE GOING FORWARD WITH SOMETHING LIKE THIS, THAT THE COMMUNITY SUPPORTS IT. BECAUSE WE KNOW THAT THERE ARE SOME FOLKS THAT THINK WE ARE PICKING FAVORITES HERE. FROM A CAPITAL STANDPOINT, DAYBREAK STAR IS SOMETHING THAT THE COMMUNITY IS WELCOME TO. WE USE IT A LOT. I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND THANK THE FACT THAT THEY OPENED THAT CENTER DURING ALL OF THE CONVERSATIONS WE HAD AT FORT LAWTON. I THINK IT IS APPROPRIATE FOR US TO MOVE FORWARD WITH A CAPITAL INVESTMENTS. I WILL SUPPORT THIS AND COUNCILMEMBER PACHECO, DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? >> AND THE EFFECT THAT IT STILL SAYS IT IS ONGOING SUPPORT, IS IT YOUR INTENT FOR IT TO BE ONE TIME? >>IT IS MY INTENT FOR IT TO BE ONE TIME. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU FOR NOTICING THAT. >>ONGOING. >>I WOULD SAY ONE TIME. TO PROVIDE ONE-TIME SUPPORT. >>THANK YOU. >>DO WE NEED AN AMENDMENT? >>DO WE NEED TO AMEND THE AMENDMENT? >>YOU CAN JUST FIX IT BEFORE MONDAY. >>THE AMENDMENT WILL STILL BE THE SAME TO THE BELL. I THINK THE COMMENT ABOUT HOW THE EFFECTS CHANGED WOULD BE SUFFICIENT. >>INC. YOU FOR CATCHING THAT. I WANT TO SAY ONE MORE THING. I THINK IT IS SO APPROPRIATE THAT YOU ASKED US TO REACH OUT TO COUNCILMEMBER JUAREZ AS WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE DISCOVERY PARK CREATION AT THE CREATION OF DAYBREAK CENTER FOR EXAMPLE. SHE HAD A PIVOTAL ROLE IN THE CREATION OF THAT CULTURAL GEM. SO WE WILL DEFINITELY REACH OUT TO HER AND WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE ALL OF HER WORK ON THAT. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >>ONE MORE, LISA? >>WITH YOUR PERMISSION, WE ARE DOING SOME FURTHER INVESTIGATION TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE THE RIGHT BUDGET SUMMARY LEVEL ON THIS ONE. >>VERY GOOD. SO YOU CAN JUST PRESENT THAT ON MONDAY IN FRONT OF THE FULL COUNSEL. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR TRACKING THAT. AND FOR CATCHING THE ONE TIME. THAT IS IMPORTANT. THANK YOU FOR ACKNOWLEDGING THE WORK THAT COUNCIL MEMBER JUAREZ HAS BEEN DOING TWO. I APPRECIATE THIS. AS AMENDED, ONE TIME, LITTLE FUNDING THAT WILL BE USED FOR SUCH THINGS, WE ARE NOT NECESSARILY TYING THEIR HANDS TO THIS BUT IT IS RESTAURANT RENOVATION, KITCHEN RENOVATION, AND THEY WILL COME BACK TO US WITH A LIST. IT IS NOT LIKE WE ARE HANDING THEM A CHECK. >>SO I WILL MOVE AMENDMENT NUMBER 11. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DIG. NONE OPPOSED. NO EXTENSION. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT. >>OKAY. I THINK THAT THERE’S GOING TO BE A CHANGE IN AMENDMENT 12. I WILL LET YOU SPEAK TO THAT AND THEN I WILL ADD SOME THINGS. >>THANK YOU MADAM CHAIR. DO YOU WANT TO BRIEF US ON WHAT ITEM NUMBER 12 WAS? >>IS ABOUT TO BE PULLED. WE DON’T HAVE TO GO TOO FAR ON THAT. >>THIS AMENDMENT WAS GOING TO ADD 400,000 TO THE HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT FROM THE GENERAL FUND. TO PROVIDE PUBLIC FACING DASHBOARD METRICS FOR INVESTMENTS IN HOMELESSNESS. >>SO WOULD YOU LIKE TO EXPLAIN WHAT YOUR INTENTIONS ARE AND WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN GOING FORWARD? >>YES. SO AGAIN, THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP, NOT ONLY IN THIS COMMITTEE BUT ON THE SELECT COMMITTEE OF HOUSING AND HOMELESSNESS. OF THE LAST EIGHT MONTHS, WE HAVE REALLY BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE DESIRE TO SEEK APPLES TO APPLES DATA POINTS. RECOGNIZING SOMETIMES DATA CAN BE USED IN A PUNITIVE WAY. ESPECIALLY FOR OUR ORGANIZATIONS WHO ARE TRYING TO SERVE A REALLY DIVERSE AND HARD TO SERVE POPULATION. WE DON’T WANT DATA TO BE MISUSED. BUT WE WANT TO HAVE APPLES TO APPLES COMPARISONS TO SEE HOW WE ARE DOING AS A CITY. PART OF THE CONVERSATION WE HAVE HAD WITH THE PUBLIC, WITH OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS HAS BEEN TO SAY THAT WE ARE DOING A REALLY GOOD JOB IN MANY WAYS OF TRYING TO SERVE INDIVIDUALS WITH THE SERVICES WE HAVE. WE KNOW THERE IS STILL 5500 ON SHELTERED FOLKS OUTSIDE WHO DON’T HAVE A PLACE TO SLEEP INSIDE EACH NIGHT. TRYING TO GET THEM INTO SHELTERS OR A SAFE PLACE HAS BEEN VERY CHALLENGING. IF WE LOOK AT JUST ONE DATA POINT, BEING THE LAST TIME WE ASKED FOR THE NUMBER OF VACANCIES A MONTH ON AVERAGE, THERE ARE ONLY 5-6 ENHANCED SHELTER BEDS (NIGHT. WHICH HELPS PUT IN PERSPECTIVE WHY FOLKS SEE SO MANY PEOPLE SLEEPING OUTSIDE. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A MONTH OVER MONTH DATA SET THAT COMBINES ALL HOME DATA. SEATTLE HSD SEATTLE DATA THAT WE CURRENTLY RECEIVE AND TO COUPLE THAT WITH POTENTIALLY WHAT WE HAVE HEARD FROM COMMUNITY PARTNERS ABOUT WHAT COULD BE APPROPRIATE WAYS TO MEASURE SUCCESS. SUCH AS WAS SOMEBODY ABLE TO STAY WITH THEIR CASE MANAGER? WERE THEY ABLE TO STAY IN THE SAME SCHOOL? ACCESS MEDICATIONS IF THEY NEED TO? OR GET THEIR HEALTH CARD? SOME OF THOSE THINGS WE HAVE HEARD FROM COMMUNITY PARTNERS ARE A MORE ACCURATE REPRESENTATION TATIAN OF THE TYPE OF SERVICES THEY PROVIDE. IMPORTANT, ON THE PREVENTION SIDE, HOW MANY PEOPLE WERE ALLOWED TO STAY IN THEIR HOME OR APARTMENT WITHOUT GETTING EVICTED BECAUSE THEY GOT $200 THAT MONTH AND WERE KICKED OUT ONTO THE STREET? I DON’T PRETEND TO HAVE THE EXACT FORMULA WE SUGGESTED BUT WE STILL METRICS. THE CITY IS WORKING IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE COUNTY TO CREATE A REGIONAL ACCESS PLAN THAT IS FORTHCOMING. WE HAVE HEARD FROM OUR COUNTY PARTNERS THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO PURSUE THIS IDEA BUT NEED A LITTLE BIT OF ADDITIONAL TIME. MY HOPE WOULD HAVE BEEN THAT THIS WORK WOULD HAVE STARTED IN DECEMBER WHEN WE STARTED ASKING FOR IT. I WILL BE PULLING THIS AMENDMENT TODAY WITH THE RECOGNITION THAT THE REGIONAL ACCESS PLAN WILL COME TO US FOR CONSIDERATION IS SEPTEMBER. AND I THINK THAT WHILE THERE IS SOME NUMBERS OF VACANCIES THAT OF ALLOWED FOR US TO IDENTIFY A $400,000 BUCKET, WHAT I AM HOPING FOLKS WILL DO IN THE FUTURE WITH YOUR SUPPORT IS THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO DIRECT EITHER THE REGIONAL ENTITY OR OUR CITY PARTNERS TO REALLY INCORPORATE MORE OF THESE COMMUNITY DRIVEN DATA METRICS AND THAT WE CAN HAVE A VISUAL DASHBOARD THAT IS PRESENTED TO US MONTH AFTER MONTH THAT USES THE SAME TYPE OF MEASUREMENT SO THAT WE HAVE THE SAME METHODOLOGY APPLIED EACH MONTH. SO WE ARE NOT SCRAMBLING TO COMPARE NUMBERS THAT MIGHT NOT BE APPLES TO APPLES. SO WHILE WE ARE NOT POTENTIALLY MOVING FORWARD, THIS A MOMENT TODAY, THE DESIRE IS STILL THERE. OUR PULLING OF THIS SHOULD NOT INDICATE THAT WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THIS TYPE OF COORDINATED DATA ACROSS THE COUNTY AND ACROSS THE CITY. FOR THAT DATA, AT SOME POINT IN THE VERY NEAR FUTURE, HOPEFULLY BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR, TO INCLUDE THOSE METRICS WE HAVE HEARD FROM COMMUNITY PARTNERS ARE SO DESPERATELY NEEDED TO MORE ACCURATELY REFLECT THAT KIND OF SERVICES AND THE NEED FOR MORE SERVICES OUT THERE SO WE ARE ABLE TO APPROPRIATELY DIRECT APPROPRIATIONS IN THE FUTURE WHERE WE NEED TO SCALE UP OR WERE WE HAVE SEEN SOMETHING WORK REALLY WELL AT HOW WE ARE DOUBLING DOWN. I WILL BE PULLING THIS AMENDMENT TODAY. >>THANK YOU FOR THAT. ALSO, I WANT TO APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT BOTH OF YOU ARE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH IN THE FACT THAT WE GOT THIS EARLY MEMO THIS MORNING FROM THEN NOBLE AND FROM JASON JOHNSON. I GOT AN EMAIL FROM MEG ALSO THAT SAID WE HAVE A LOT GOING ON. ALL HOME HAS A PROGRAM PERFORMANCE METRIC THAT THEY ARE BUILDING. IT HAS TAKEN THEM 18 MONTHS TO BUILD OUT. I WANT TO BUILD ON THAT. AND ADD THE KINDS OF THINGS AND THE CRITERIA THAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. I, ONE OF THE THINGS I HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH WITH SOME OF THE PARTNERS, WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO IDENTIFY INDIVIDUALS AND TO BE ABLE TO MAKE SURE THAT THE VISUAL BY INDIVIDUAL ARE GETTING THE HELP THEY NEED. OTHER CITIES HAVE DONE THIS THROUGH A FORM OF ID. AND WE ARE NOT TRYING TO BE BIG BROTHER, WE ARE TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT THE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE OUT THERE ARE GETTING WHAT THEY NEED. AND THAT IS A BIT OF A SIDE FROM THE DASHBOARD BUT TO MAKE THIS EFFECTIVE AND AS OUR REGIONAL PARTNERSHIP IS COMING TOGETHER, WE HAVE SOME NEW OPPORTUNITIES TO BUILD ON WHAT WE’VE GOT. NOT START OVER. AT THE SAME TIME, BE A LOT MORE EFFECTIVE. THANK YOU. THANK YOU FOR CALLING IT. I APPRECIATE YOU DOING THAT. >>I WILL ASK THAT MEMO. I ACTUALLY DIDN’T RECEIVE A COPY OF THAT. >>I THINK IT FLOWED IN ABOUT 830 THIS MORNING. >>I APPRECIATE THAT. WE WILL WORK WITH YOU, MADAM CHAIR, SO WE CAN FOLLOW UP ON THIS. WHETHER IT IS IN THIS COMMITTEE OR WHETHER IT IS IN OUR NEW REGIONAL EVER MEANT ENTITY. I APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT FOR THE ACTION WE ARE CALLING FOR. >>GOOD. THAT IS PULLED. NOW WE HAVE JUST GONE THROUGH A NUMBER OF AMENDMENTS. AND I THINK, ALLISON, GO AHEAD. >>I WILL REMIND YOU. WHEN YOU’RE MAKING THE MOTION TO REFER IT TO MONDAY. >>VERY GOOD. WE HAVE ALREADY SAID WE WERE GOING TO DO THAT, RIGHT? >>EVERY SINGLE AMENDMENT? >>FINE. VERY GOOD. THANK YOU. SO WE ARE NOW AT COUNSEL BILL 119575. AND WE HAVE HAD MULTIPLE AMENDMENTS THAT IS BEEN MOVED AND PASSED. DO WE MOVE FIRST TO PUT IT FORWARD TO THE COMMITTEE ON MONDAY? SO I AM GOING TO MOVE THAT WE AGREE TO, ON A SPECIAL FASTTRACK SCHEDULE, TO MOVE THIS AMENDMENT FOR OUR BUDGET AND WITH THE ADDITIONAL AMENDMENTS, TO FULL COMMITTEE THIS MONDAY. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE. NONE POST. NO EXTENSIONS. WE WILL GO FORWARD. NOW WE WILL MOVE TO PASS 119575 AS AMENDED. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DITCH. THEN OPPOSED. WE HAVE NO EXTENSIONS. THAT WILL GO FORWARD TO FULL COMMITTEE ON MONDAY. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND YOUR WORK THROUGH ON THIS. NOW ITEM NUMBER FOUR. 119572. >>ITEM NUMBER FOUR, CONSTABLE 119572, AMENDING THE 2018 BUDGET. INCLUDING THE 2018-2023 CIP. >>VERY GOOD. TOM? YOU ARE ON. >>THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. THIS IS SORT OF A TECHNICAL PIECE OF LEGISLATION. WHAT THIS REFERS TO IS THE 2008 TEAM EXCEPTIONS. BY LAW, WE ARE REQUIRED TO, EXPENDITURES NEED TO BE BELOW THE LEVEL OF BUDGET AUTHORITY. AND THE ABUNDANT LEVEL OF CASES, THAT IS THE CASE. HOWEVER, THERE ARE SOME RARE EXCEPTIONS. WHAT THIS ORDINANCE DOES IS RETROACTIVELY INCREASES THE 2018 BUDGET APPROPRIATION TO DIVIDE THE AUTHORITY FOR THOSE RARE EXCEPTIONS TO GO UNDER THE THRESHOLD. >>OKAY. VERY GOOD. ANYTHING SPECIFIC? THESE ARE PASS-THROUGHS? >>IN MOST CASES, IT IS A, THE TOTAL IMPACT IS $13 MILLION. THE LARGEST LION SHARE OF THAT IS IN THE CUSTOMER REQUESTED MOVEMENTS PROGRAM. FAS. THAT IS JUST PASSED THROUGH AUTHORITY FOR THE FAS TO DO WORK ON BEHALF OF OTHER DEPARTMENTS. SO THAT WORK HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE THE MONEY HAS ALREADY BEEN SPENT. THIS JUST INCREASES, ESSENTIALLY CORRECTS FOR SOMETHING THAT WOULD’VE BEEN DONE IN THE FOURTH QUARTER SUPPLEMENTAL. HOWEVER, IT WAS MISSED. ú>>IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE WHO NEEDS TO SPEAK TO THIS? OR ALL REGARD. THERE ARE NO AMENDMENTS. IT IS AS DISCUSSED PRIOR. >>ANY FOR THE QUESTIONS, COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA? I WILL MOVE COMES A BELT 119572. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DITCH. WE MISSED ONE WE STILL HAVE A MAJORITY. VERY GOOD. THANK YOU. SO ITEM NUMBER FIVE. >>MADAM CHAIR, IF I COULD. LISA POINTED OUT WE DIDN’T SUSPEND THE RULES AND THAT ONE. THE INTENT IS TO DISCUSS THE EXCEPTIONS ON MONDAY. >>VERY GOOD. THANK YOU FOR THAT. I WILL MOVE ON THIS ITEM NUMBER FOUR TO SUSPEND THE RULES TO ALLOW US TO PUT IT FORWARD ON MONDAY, AUGUST 12. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DITCH. NONE OPPOSED. THANK YOU FOR THAT. THANK YOU FOR KEEPING US ON TRACK. >>ITEM NUMBER FIVE, CONSTABLE 119576. MMS AMENDING ORDINANCE 125 74 WHICH ADOPTED THE 2019 BUDGET INCLUDING THE 2019-2024 CIP. >>CONSTABLE 119576, THIS IS THE CAPITAL AND GRANTS ABANDONMENTS ORDINANCE. IT IS IN THE SIMILAR VEIN AS THE EXCEPTIONS. IN SOME CASES, THE DEPARTMENTS RECOGNIZE THAT THE APPROPRIATION AUTHORITY IS NO LONGER NECESSARY. FOR A VARIETY OF TECHNICAL REASONS. AND THIS IS JUST THEIR REQUEST TO DECREASE THE AUTHORITY TO MATCH WHAT THEIR NEEDS TRULY ARE. >>IT DOESN’T HAPPEN OFTEN BUT THE IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE, THE BUDGET IS BEING REDUCED. I RECOMMEND QUESTIONS? WE WENT THROUGH THIS PRETTY WELL. >>WE NEED TO MOVE TO SUSPEND THIS ONE AS WELL. >>SHOULD WE DO THAT FIRST? I WILL MOVE TO SUSPEND OUR RULES THAT WILL ALLOW US TO PUT THIS FORWARD TO FULL COUNCIL ON MONDAY, THE 12th. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DITCH. NONE OPPOSED. THANK YOU FOR THAT. NOW WE WILL MOVE TO ITEM NUMBER FIVE. I WILL MOVE 119576. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DITCH. NONE OPPOSED. NO EXTENSIONS. THE GIFT THAT. VERY MUCH. SO NOW WE ARE MOVING OFF OF BUDGET. ALL, WE STILL HAVE ONE. >>ITEM NUMBER SIX. VISIBLE 19573. AN ORDINANCE AMENDING ORDINANCE 125 74, WHICH ADOPTED THE 2019 BUDGET, INCLUDING THE 2019-2024 CIP. >>SHOULD WE FIRST MOVED TO SUSPEND THE RULES? SEE IF WE HAVE THIS RIGHT YET. I WILL MOVE TO SUSPEND THE RULES TO ALLOW IS ABOUT 119573 IF IT PASSES TO FULL COUNCIL ON MONDAY. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DITCH. ALL RIGHT. PLEASE SPEAK TO COUNSEL BILL 119573. >>THIS IS THE 2019 CARRYFORWARD PREPARATION. SO WHAT THIS DOES IS IN SOME CASES, THERE WAS A PREPARATION AUTHORITY THAT WAS PROVIDED IN 2018. OH HOWEVER, THE WORK THAT AUTHORITY WAS PROVIDED FOR WAS NOT COMPLETE. THERE IS STILL CASH AVAILABLE. HOWEVER, DEPARTMENTS NEED THE AUTHORIZATION FROM COUNSEL IN ORDER TO SUSPEND THAT, TO COMPLETE THE WORK. SO IN A NUTSHELL, THAT IS WHAT THIS DOES. IT MOVES THE MONEY AND THE APPROPRIATIONS TO 2019 TO COMPLETE THE PROJECTS. >>WE TALKED ABOUT THIS LAST WEEK. WE ARE MOVING THE AUTHORITY TO PAY FOR WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE. >>WE HAVE 14 PAGES OF THIS. >>CORRECT. I DON’T THINK WE NEED TO GO THROUGH IT AGAIN SINCE WE WENT THROUGH AT THE LAST MEETING UNLESS YOU HAVE PARTICULAR QUESTIONS. THIS IS ALREADY APPROVED. WE SUSPEND THE RULES. AND WE ARE READY FOR THE BOAT, I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE THAT THE COMMITTEE PASSED COUNTABLE 119573. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE DITCH. NONE OPPOSED. NOTE ABSTENTION’S. THANK YOU. I THINK WE ARE NOW ABLE TO MOVE ON TO OUR LAST ITEM ON THE BUDGET. >>ITEM NUMBER SEVEN. INHIBITING EDITORIAL RENTING OF EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED VEHICLES. WE WILL GET THE FIRST BRIEFING. MAY I AND VOID FOLKS TO COME UP? ERIC? JEFF? TEST? >>ITEM NUMBER SEVEN, EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED MOTOR VEHICLES ORDINANCE BEEFING AND DISCUSSION. >>NICE TO SEE ALL OF OUR FRIENDS COMING UP. IT PROBABLY WOULD’VE BEEN SIMPLER IF WE JUST CAME OUT TO YOU. SINCE WE HAVE HAVE THE AUDIENCE MOVED UP. DO WANT TO COME JOIN US? COME ON. VERY GOOD. JEFF, WOULD YOU LIKE TO START INTRODUCTIONS? >>JEFF SIMMS, COUNSEL CENTRAL STAFF. >> CALVIN WILLIAMS. DIRECTOR OF FINANCE INITIATIVE SERVICES. >>PATRICE BEAUREGARD,. >>CHRISTIAN GROWTH. >>JEFF, ARE YOU GOING TO SPEAK TO THIS? >>I COULD PROVIDE A DISCUSSION. AS COUNCIL MEMBERS KNOW, PROXIMALLY 1/5 OF THE PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS IN SEATTLE ARE LIVING IN VEHICLES, ABOUT 7%, AND ALL OF KING COUNTY. 7% OF THEM ARE RESIDING IN RVS. THESE ORDINANCES WOULD DEAL VEHICLES AS EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED. IMMOVABLE. THE SANITATION SYSTEMS DO NOT WORK SO THEY DON’T HAVE THE OPTION, IF THEY HAVE AN RV, THEY DON’T HAVE THE OPTION OF DUMPING INTO SOURCE. IT WOULD MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO RENT THESE VEHICLES. THESE EXTENSIVELY DAMAGED VEHICLES, NOT JUST RVS BUT ALL VEHICLES, OUT TO INDIVIDUALS. AND HAS PENALTIES ASSOCIATED WITH THE VIOLATION. >>AND I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM THE MAYORS OFFICE ON THIS. I DID HAVE A CHANCE TO TALK TO THE MAYOR EARLIER THIS WEEKEND. I WANT TO SET UP A FRAME ON THIS. WE ARE LOOKING FOR 3 THINGS. ONE, WE DON’T WANT PEOPLE TO LIVE IN HORRIBLE SUBSTANDARD HOUSING. OF ANY KIND. ANY PLACE. AND SO I DO WANT TO ACKNOWLDGE THAT I BELIEVE, IT IS REALLY FIRST AND FOREMOST IN PEOPLE’S MINDS. WE DON’T ALLOW PEOPLE TO LIVE IN RAT INFESTED OR MOLD. WE HAVE DONE OUR BEST OVER THE YEARS TO REALLY TAKE A FIRM POSITION THAT WE WILL NOT ALLOW THAT KIND OF HOUSING TO BE RENTED TO ANYBODY OR ANY FAMILY. I ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT NEIGHBORHOODS HAVE SAID THESE DILAPIDATED THINGS SHOULD NOT BE LIKE TO REMAIN IN NEIGHBORHOODS. THE THIRD BIG ITEM FOR US, I KNOW IS TO BE ABLE TO FIND SPACES FOR THESE FOLKS. THAT WE DON’T JUST TAKE WHAT IS PROBABLY THEIR LAST DITCH EFFORT AS A PLACE TO SURVIVE EMMA BUT TO CREATE MORE 24/7 PLACES FOR THEM TO BE. I BELIEVE. SO WITH THAT FRAME UP, PLEASE, CALVIN, NICE TO SEE YOU AGAIN. >>>THANK YOU FOR THE CHANCE TO BE HERE TODAY. GOOD MORNING. MEMBERS OF THE COMMITTEE AND COUNCIL. AS YOU MAY KNOW, CHAIR BAGSHAW, OVERSEES THE ADMINISTRATION CONTRACT WITH THE CITY OF SEATTLE AND THE BUDGET OVERSIGHT REGARDS TO RV DISPOSAL. I AM HERE BEFORE YOUR COMMITTEE, WHICH HAS OVERSIGHT OF FAS. WE ARE HERE TODAY TO DISCUSS LEGISLATION THAT WOULD PROHIBIT PREDATORY RENTALS OF VEHICLES THAT POSE HEALTH AND PUBLIC SAFETY RISKS TO THE OCCUPANTS INTO THE BROADER PUBLIC. IN THE COURSE OF OUR WORK WITH PEOPLE LIVING IN VEHICLES AND THEIR AMENITIES, STAFF ACROSS MULTIPLE DEPARTENTS HAVE COME TOGETHER TO RECOGNIZE THAT THERE ARE CONDITIONS WHERE PEOPLE ARE LIVING THAT ARE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. ANY PEOPLE LIVING IN THESE CONDITIONS ARE ALSO PAYING TO DO SO. LACKING PROTECTIONS UNDER OUR EXISTING LAWS, STAFF WORKED WITH PARTNERS AT SEATTLE KING COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH. THE CITY ATTORNEY’S OFFICE TO DEVELOP LEGISLATION THAT WE ARE HERE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT TODAY. I APPRECIATE THE CHANCE TO DO SO. BEFORE I START, I WANT TO NOTE THAT WE ARE HERE TODAY TO TALK ABOUT THE PREDATORY RENTALS OF UNSAFE VEHICLES. THE PREDATORY RENTALS OF UNSAFE VEHICLES. WE RECOGNIZE THIS LEGISLATION DOES NOT SOLVE THE BROADER VEHICLE LIVING CHALLENGES. WE DO THINK THIS IS AN IMPORTANT STEP IN MAKING CONDITIONS SAFER FOR EVERYONE. WITH THIS, I WILL TURN IT OVER TO EDRIS BEAUREGARD TO GIVE AN OVERVIEW OF THE SITUATION AND GIVE A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE CITIES WORK REGARDING VEHICLE LIVING AND TRASH CLEANUP IN THE RIGHT-OF-WAY THROUGH THE RV REMEDIATION PROGRAM. >>THANK YOU. AND THINK YOU FOR COMING TO THE TABLE. THANK YOU TO SBU AND FAS AND THE MAYORS OFFICE FOR BRINGING THIS INTERDEPARTMENTAL TEAM TOGETHER. >>THANK YOU AND GOOD MORNING. SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES. OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS, THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASE OF RECREATIONAL VEHICLES, PARKING THE RIGHT-OF-WAY, WHICH HAS LED TO PROLONGED PERIODS OF TIME. WHICH LED TO ESSENTIALLY A LOT OF TRASH ACCUMULATION AND DEBRIS BUILDUP. BAKE ON THE CIRCUMSTANCE WE ARE DEALING WITH, WE HAVE THE RV REMEDIATION PILOT, BROUGHT TOGETHER IN NOVEMBER 2017, WHICH ULTIMATELY EXPANDED TO A CITYWIDE. WE STARTED IN THE SODA DISTRIC. BASED ON SEVERAL CITY DEPARTMENTS THAT CAME TOGETHER, AS CALVIN MENTIONED, INCLUDING SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES, FAS, SEATTLE PARKS AND RECREATION, SEATTLE POLICE DEPARTMENT, COMMUNITY POLICE AND TEAM AND IT WAS ESSENTIALLY DESIGNED TO WORK WITH RV OCCUPANTS AND HAVE THEM VOLUNTARILY MOVE THEIR VEHICLES. IN A WAY THAT WOULD ENABLE CITY CREWS TO COME AND WORK TOGETHER TO CLEAN UP THE SAFETY, THE PUBLIC SAFETY HAZARDS REGARDING RV VEHICLES. THROUGH THIS WORK, TEAMS CAME ACROSS SEVERAL DIFFERENT TYPES OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY ISSUES THAT THEY ENCOUNTERED. THEY FELL INTO 4 MILLION CATEGORIES. INADEQUATE THAT IT TATIAN, ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS, FIRE HAZARDS, AND INADEQUATE PROTECTION AND WHETHER. >>WHAT WAS THE LAST ONE? >>INADEQUATE PROTECTION FROM WEATHER. THEY HAVE SEEN THAT OFTEN TIMES DURING THE RV REMEDIATION PILOT. THEY WOULD COME ACROSS RECREATIONAL VEHICLES THAT WOULD BE DILAPIDATED. THE ROOFS TORN OUT. THE STRUCTURE WAS A VERY WEAK. POSING A THREAT TO THE WEATHER. WHETHER IT IS RAIN, SNOW, HARSH CONDITIONS LEADING TO BUILDUP AND OTHER CONCERNS WITHIN THE RV ITSELF. >>I AM RESPECTFUL OF WHAT YOU JUST SAID AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW, HOW DOES THIS DIFFER WHEN WE RUN INTO PEOPLE WHO ARE LIVING IN A TENT? THAT IS CLEARLY INADEQUATE SHELTER. IT COULD BE AN ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER. I KNOW THAT WE REMOVED TENTS FROM UNDERNEATH I- 5 BECAUSE WE ARE WORRIED ABOUT FIRE AND CLEARLY INCREMENT WEATHER. HOW ARE WE DIFFERENTIATING THE ICKY LIVING CONDITIONS INSIDE A MOBILE HOME OR CAR FROM THE BAD CONDITIONS FOR PEOPLE LIVING INTENSE? >>THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION. WE LET THE NAVIGATION TEAM HANDLE HOW THEY ADDRESS THE LIVING CONDITIONS WITHIN THE TENTS. NAVIGATION TEAM WORKS DIRECTLY WITH THE HUMAN CONDITIONS THAT THEY ARE EXPERIENCING IN HOMELESS IN CAMAS. FOR US, WHAT WE HAVE DONE IS, IN ORDER TO DETERMINE WITH THE PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK WAS BASED UPON, WE PARTNERED WITH SEATTLE PUBLIC HEALTH AND KING COUNTY IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH SOME CRITERIA THAT IDENTIFIES SOME OF THE RISKS THAT ARE INVOLVED. THAT LANGUAGE WAS DEVELOPED USING THE INITIAL JUNK VEHICLE AFFIDAVIT THAT WAS ALREADY CREATED. THE CRITERIA FOR THE PART DEPARTMENT OF LICENSING AND INFORMATION FROM THE CITY OF SEATTLE HOUSING AND BUILDING CODE ALONG WITH THE CITY OF SEATTLE STORM WATER CODE. THOSE ARE SOME OF THE WAYS WE HAVE ESTABLISHED SOME PUBLIC AND SELF AND SAFETY REQUIREMENTS. WE ARE APPLYING THAT TO THE RVS THEMSELVES. >>SOME OF THESE UNDER THE CATEGORIES, WHAT WE DO COME ACROSS WHEN THEY ARE OUT IN THE FIELD WORKING WITH THE RVS, THERE ARE SOME ALARMING CONDITIONS, WHICH INCLUDE INFESTATION, RODENTS, RATS, OTHER PESTS. LARGE AMOUNTS OF GARBAGE, DEBRIS AND IT ALSO INCLUDES AIR- QUALITY HAZARDS AS WE MENTIONED FOR MOLD, EXPOSED INSULATION AND OTHER IMPROVEMENTS. A LARGE AMOUNT OF URINE, BLOOD, HUMAN WASTE, LACK OF PROPERLY WORKING RV SEWER SYSTEMS AND HAZARDOUS WASTE FROM IMPROPERLY PLACED PROPANE TANKS, BATTERIES AND CHEMICAL OR MOTOR OILS. >>ARE WE TALKING SPECIFICALLY ABOUT RVS THAT ARE BEING BRANCHED OR LEASED OUT? OR ALL RVS? >>THESE RVS THAT WE ARE REFERRING TO, THAT WE HAVE NOTICED IN THE FIELD IS BASED ON THE REMEDIATION PILOT. OUR STAFF, SPU STAFF, PARKING ENFORCEMENT STAFF, THEY ARE COMING ACROSS LARGE AMOUNTS OF RVS. THESE ARE PARTICULAR TO THE RV REMEDIATION PILOT. OTHER PARKING ENFORCEMENT STAFF HAVE ALSO COME ACROSS RVS THAT WERE IN SIMILAR CONDITIONS AND MOST COMMONLY, THE CONDITIONS THAT WE RUN ACROSS WITH RVS, THE REMEDIATION PILOT ARE IN OPERABLE. >>THESE PEOPLE ARE EXTREMELY POOR SO THEY CAN’T AFFORD NICE RVS. I GET THAT. BUT MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THE IMPETUS OF THIS LEGISLATION IS ABOUT THE ISSUE AROUND PEOPLE LEASING OUT RVS. I CAN’T TELL IF YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT SPECIFIC SUBSETS OF THESE THAT ARE LEAST. ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT BROADLY? WE KNOW THE RVS ARE IN BAD CONDITIONS. THERE ARE EXTREMELY POOR PEOPLE. >>THIS IS AN OVERVIEW OF THE RV REMEDIATION PILOT. WE ARE RUNNING ACROSS THESE TYPES OF RVS AND RV REMEDIATION PILOT’S. THIS IS BROADLY ABOUT RVS AND GENERAL. >>I THINK YOU ARE ABOUT TO TRANSITION. IN THE COURSE OF THIS WORK, IN THE COURSE OF THIS WORK, WE HAVE DEVELOPED LANGUAGE IN ORDER TO IDENTIFY THE RISKS THAT ARE INVOLVED, THE PUBLIC SAFETY RISKS THAT ARE INCLUSIVE OF THESE. THESE ARE JUST SOME THAT YOU CAN LOOK UP TO. BUT WE HAVE ALSO NOTICED WORKING ON THE RV REMEDIATION PILOT. THE DAMAGED RVS. THE BEHAVIOR OF THE PREDATORY BEHAVIOR THAT WAS PREYING ON VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES SUBSETS LIVING IN THE RV. THAT INCLUDES THE LEASING AND TRADING OF CERTAIN SERVICES IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO RESIDE IN RVS. THAT IS SOMETHING THAT ARE RV REMEDIATION TEAMS HAVE NOTICED IN ADDITION TO IDENTIFYING GAPS IN OUR CURRENT CITY COME AT THE SYSTEM AND THE WAY WE ARE TOWING THE VEHICLES AFTER THEY ARE LEFT BEHIND. OFTENTIMES, 53% OF THE TIME, WE HAVE SEEN THE SAME VEHICLES BACK UP IN THESE CLUSTERS THAT WE ARE DEALING WITH. >>I WILL LET YOU GO THROUGH AS I TALK ABOUT WHAT WE ARE HERE TO TALK ABOUT TODAY. THE PROPOSE LEGISLATION. SO ESSENTIALLY IN THE COURSE OF THE WORK THAT SP D, HSD ARE DOING RELATED TO RVS, THEY HAVE, ACROSS A NUMBER OF CONDITIONS WHERE RESIDENTS ARE REPORTING THAT THEY ARE ACTUALLY PAYING TO LIVE IN THIS CONDITION. SITUATIONS WHERE PEOPLE DON’T HAVE THE KEYS TO THEIR VEHICLES TO MOVE THEM. FOR PICK UP SITUATIONS WHERE PEOPLE ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE SECURITY OF THEIR BELONGINGS WITHIN THESE RVS. THE PURPOSE OF THE LEGISLATION, GO AHEAD. >>CAN I ASK A QUESTION? I HAVE NEVER OWNED AN RV. BUT THERE IS AN IGNITION KEY THAT IS AN OPERABLE. I ASSUME IT IS A KEY THAT LOCKS THE DOORS. IT IS A SEPARATE KEY? >>I DON’T KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT. WE DO KNOW THAT PEOPLE REPORT THEY ARE UNABLE TO MOVE THEIR VEHICLES BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE THE KEYS. AS A CONDITION OF THE AGREEMENT TO LIVE THERE. >>I AM INTERESTED IN KNOWING IF THEY HAVE THE KEYS TO LOCK THEIR BELONGINGS. BECAUSE THAT IS, WHEN I READ THE ARTICLE, I WAS UNCLEAR WHICH SET OF KEYS THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT. >>THE TODAY WE ARE HERE TO TALK ABOUT TWO THINGS. ONE IS WE ARE HERE TO ADDRESS TWO ISSUES. ONE IS WE HAVE THE SITUATION. IT IS PREDATORY BEHAVIOR. AFFECTING VULNERABLE PEOPLE. WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT PUTTING RENTING OF RVS. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PROHIBITING RENTING OF DANGEROUS VEHICLES. VEHICLES THAT THE HEALTH CONDITION POSES A CHALLENGE TO THE PEOPLE LIVING IN THOSE VEHICLES. AND A CHALLENGE TO THE PEOPLE IN THE SURROUNDING NEIGHBORHOODS. SO TO DO THIS, I THINK HE HAS A FEW PICTURES OF THE CONDITIONS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT. WHAT YOU CAN’T SEE HERE IS THE SITUATION WITH MOLDS. THE SITUATION WITH RAIN COMING INTO THE BUILDING’S. THESE ARE CONDITIONS WHERE PEOPLE ARE LIVING. THE INSECTS, THE VERMIN, IT IS PRETTY SUBSTANTIAL. I THINK ALSO NOTEWORTHY, JUST THE SITUATION OF NOT HAVING ANY TYPE OF WORKING BATHROOM OR RUNNING WATER. IN THIS CONDITION. >>EXCUSE ME. WHEN I STEPPED UP, DID YOU ANSWER THE QUESTION OF HOW MANY PEOPLE YOU THINK ARE IMPACTED BY THIS? >>THE QUESTION IS, HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE RENTING AND A CONDITION LIKE THIS. >>IF WE ARE FOCUSING ON THE PREDATORY APPROACH OF PEOPLE LIVING IN SOMETHING WHERE THEY’RE HAVING TO PAY RENT, YOU ARE GOING AFTER THE RANCHERS, DO WE HAVE A SENSE OF HOW MANY PEOPLE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT? >>WE HAVE HEARD OF SOMEWHERE BETWEEN TWO AND FIVE PEOPLE. THIS IS A REALLY FLUID SITUATION, WHO ARE IN FACT RENTING THESE VEHICLES OUT TO OTHER PEOPLE. ANY TIME, THERE COULD BE A VARIABLE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE LIVING IN ONE RV OR MANY RVS. THE ACTUAL MEASURING THAT PARTICULAR THING, IT IS CREDIBLY FLUID. BUT WE HAVE HEARD OF 2-5 RANCHERS. >>I KNOW WE TALKED BEFORE YOU CAME IN. COUNCILMEMBER O’BRIEN, WE ARE TRYING TO ADDRESS A HEALTH PROBLEM. WE ARE ALSO TRYING TO FIND PLACES FOR PEOPLE TO GO, MY REAL CONCERN IS, YOU FINALLY GET A SENSE OF, IF WE ENACT THIS LEGISLATION AS RECOMMENDED, THEN HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE, GOODNESS KNOWS WE DON’T WANT PEOPLE LIVING IN THESE TERRIBLE CONDITIONS BUT WE HAVE TO HAVE A PLACE FOR THEM TO GO TO BE BETTER. DURING THEM BACK OUT ON THE SIDEWALK AND CARDBOARD BOXES DOESN’T STRIKE ME AS BEING BETTER. AS WE ARE GOING THROUGH THIS, I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE THE FOCUS YOU HAVE ALL DONE ON THE PUBLIC HEALTH NATURE OF THIS. I WANT TO KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE WE GOING TO NEED TO ACCOMMODATE? I BELIEVE THE MAYOR TOLD ME THEY ARE OFFERED SHELTER BUT IF IT IS JUST OVERNIGHT SHELTER, WE STILL HAVEN’T SOLVED THE PROBLEM. I AM HELPFUL THAT WE ARE ALL ON THE SAME TEAM HERE. TRYING TO ADDRESS THE PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS BUT ALSO MAKE SURE WE HAVE BETTER PLACES FOR PEOPLE TO GO. >>ABSOLUTELY. WE ARE. IF YOU DON’T MIND, I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK ON THAT. >>I APOLOGIZE. >>AND I WILL TURN IT OVER TO YOUR PARTICULAR QUESTIONS. SO THE CONTENT OF THE LEGISLATION, ESSENTIALLY, IT IS PRETTY SIMPLE. IT PROHIBITS ALLOWING ANOTHER PERSON TO OCCUPY A VEHICLE. IT CAUSES PUBLIC HEALTH AND SAFETY THREATS TO THOSE INDIVIDUALS AND TO THE PUBLIC. IT DEFINES SUCH A VEHICLE AS BEING APPARENTLY AN OPERABLE. SO THINGS LIKE MISSING TIRES, MISSING ENGINE BLOCKS. HAVING AN ADEQUATE SET OF QUOTATION. THINGS LIKE INSECTS, GARBAGE, WASTEWATER SYSTEMS, HEALTH, SAFETY AND FIRE HAZARDS. WE ARE INCREASINGLY SEEING THOSE. FINALLY, INSUFFICIENT PROTECTION FROM THE WEATHER. IN ORDER TO MEET THOSE CRITERIA, A VEHICLE WOULD HAVE TO MEET TWO OF THOSE FOR SPECIFIC CRITERIA TO QUALIFY. AND THEN THE LEGISLATION ITSELF ESTABLISHES PENALTIES FOR THE OWNER OF THE VEHICLE, THE PERSON ESSENTIALLY LETTING THE OTHER PERSON OCCUPY THIS. THOSE PENALTIES ARE A CIVIL INFRACTION. FOR THE FIRST OCCURRENCE. A MISDEMEANOR FOR EVERY OCCURRENCE THEREAFTER. IT ALSO INCLUDES A $250 FINE FOR EACH OCCURRENCE AS WELL AS UP TO $2000 IN RESTITUTION FOR THE VICTIM. >>I WILL TURN IT OVER TO TESS TO SPEAK MORE ON THAT. >>ON THE LEGISLATIVE SUMMARY, THIS IS THE MEAT OF THE CONVERSATION. YOU HAVE A PIECE OF LEGISLATION THAT DOES NOT ESTABLISH BETWEEN AN INDIVIDUAL THAT IS RENTING OUT THESE VEHICLES IN A PREDATORY NATURE. THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS LEGISLATION THAT DIRECTLY TALKS ABOUT THE PENALTY BEING APPLIED TO THOSE WHO ARE ENGAGED IN A MARKET BECAUSE THERE IS NO OTHER SHELTER OPPORTUNITY. I THINK WE CAN ALL AGREE, ESPECIALLY FROM A PUBLIC HEALTH PERSPECTIVE, THAT ALL OF THE WAYS IN WHICH WE HAVE SEEN INDIVIDUALS LIVING IN THESE VERY UNSAFE CONDITIONS, IT IS NOT ONLY HEARTBREAKING TO SEE, BUT WE KNOW FROM A PUBLIC HEALTH PERSPECTIVE, IT IS IMMORAL TO ALLOW INDIVIDUALS TO LIVE IN THOSE SITUATIONS. BUT THE REASON THEY ARE LIVING THERE IS BECAUSE WE DO NOT HAVE OTHER OPTIONS. THEY ARE LIVING THERE BECAUSE THERE IS NOT THE ABILITY TO OCCUPY A BED WITH IN OUR ENHANCED SHELTERS THAT ALLOW FAMILIES TO STAY TOGETHER, FOR COUPLES TO STAY TOGETHER, FOR PEOPLE TO BE WITH THEIR PETS AND STAY WITH THEIR BELONGINGS. PEOPLE ARE OPTING TO USE THESE ITEMS BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT CREATED AN ALTERNATIVE. SO I UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS AN UNSAFE CONDITION THAT MANY INDIVIDUALS ARE FACING. I UNDERSTAND FROM THE PUBLIC’S PERSPECTIVE THAT THEY SEE UNSANITARY CONDITIONS AND THEY WANT THOSE VEHICLES MOVED OFF THE STREET. I GET IT. BUT WE HAVE NOT CREATED AN ALTERNATIVE TO THESE VEHICLES. THAT IS THE POINT WE SHOULD ALL UNDERSCORE. THE SECOND THING IS, SPECIFICALLY TO THIS LEGISLATION, IT DOES NOT SPECIFICALLY IDENTIFY WHO THE PENALTY GOES AFTER. WHEN IT SAYS NO PERSON SHALL I KNOW ANOTHER PERSON TO OCCUPY, IT DOES NOT CLARIFY IF WE ARE GOING AFTER THE PREDATORY NATURE IN WHICH MANY OF THESE ENTITIES HAVE ENGAGED IN MARKETING OR RENTING THESE DEPLORABLE VEHICLES WERE RVS TO INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE NO OTHER OPTION. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE ENFORCEMENT AND PENALTIES SECTION, I WOULD LOVE TO WORK WITH YOU ON THIS BECAUSE I KNOW WE SHARE AN INTEREST IN MAKING SURE PEOPLE HAVE A SAFE PLACE TO LIVE, A SAFE ALTERNATIVE TO LIVING IN VEHICLES AND CARS. NONE OF THE LANGUAGE AND THE ENFORCEMENT SECTION IS DIRECTED AT THE PREDATORY LESSOR OR THE RENTER. >>I WOULD HAVE TO SAY I DO DISAGREE WITH THAT. >>I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IT BECAUSE IT DOES NOT SPECIFY IN THE LEGISLATION WHO THE MISDEMEANOR GOES TO. WHERE THE PENALTY GOES. IT DOES ACTUALLY LEAVE UP TO QUESTION WHETHER OR NOT THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE CAR IS GOING TO GET PENALIZED OR IF — >>THAT IS NOT OUR INTENTION. THE INTENTION IS THE PERSON WHO IS PROFITING FROM THE PREDATORY BEHAVIOR TO BE PENALIZED. >>THAT IS NOT CLEAR. >>IF THAT IS THE CASE, I JUST WANT A FOLLOW-UP QUESTION. BECAUSE I AM AFRAID I HAVE A HARD STOP AT A FEW MINUTES. BUT THAT CLARIFICATION WOULD BE EXTREMELY WELCOME. THE OTHER THING IS, IF THERE IS NOT AN ALTERNATIVE FOR THEM, WHAT ARE WE OFFERING THESE FOLKS? THE FOLKS WERE LIVING IN THESE VEHICLES CLEARLY ARE DOING SO AS A LAST OPTION. AS A LAST RESORT. SO GIVEN OUR ONGOING CONVERSATION ABOUT THE LACK OF VACANCIES AT ENHANCED SHELTERS OR TINY HOMES OR EVEN BETTER, AFFORDABLE HOUSING, WHAT ARE WE DOING AS AN ALTERNATIVE IF WE ARE GOING TO BE TAKING AWAY THIS LAST OPPORTUNITY FOR THEM TO HAVE A PLACE TO FEEL SAFE. MANY PEOPLE DON’T FEEL SAFE ON THE GROUND SHELTERS. THEY DON’T FEEL SAFE IN TENTS. SOMETIMES A VEHICLE GIVE THEM AN ABILITY TO LOCK THE DOOR AS YOU TALKED ABOUT. IT IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE ESCAPING VIOLENCE AND NEED TO FEEL SAFE. I UNDERSTAND FROM A HEALTH PERSPECTIVE WHY THESE ARE NOT A HEALTHY OPTION, WE NEED TO OFFER THEM AN ALTERNATIVE. >>WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT ALL RVS. WE ARE NOT TALKING ABOUT ALL VEHICLES. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT A VERY SPECIFIC SUBSET OF THIS. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE RENTING. THESE VEHICLES. NOT NECESSARILY ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE THERE. THE PENALTIES OCCUR TO THE PEOPLE WHO ARE RENTING THESE VEHICLES OUT TO OTHER PEOPLE. >>SEEKING CLARIFICATION, THIS LEGISLATION BEFORE IT MOVES FORWARD, THAT IS SOMETHING THAT ABSOLUTELY NEEDS TO BE CLARIFIED IN THE LEGISLATION AS WELL. I DON’T READ ANYTHING IN THESE TWO SECTIONS THAT ACTUALLY TALK ABOUT THE TYPE OF VEHICLE BEYOND ITS DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS. WE CAN ALL ACKNOWLEDGE THE DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS YOU JUST SHOWED, WE HAVE ALL SEEN ON A DAILY BASIS, I SEE IT COMMUTING IN ON EAST MARGINAL WAY. I SEE IT ON MY COMMUTE TO GO ENJOY RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES. I SEE IT. WE KNOW THIS EXISTS. WE KNOW THAT FROM OUR FRIENDS AT BIA, THEY SEE IT ON A DAILY BASIS. WE KNOW IT EXISTS. THERE IS NOTHING IN THE LEGISLATION THAT SPECIFICALLY TALKS ABOUT JUST THOSE VEHICLES WERE PEOPLE HAVE RENTED THEM OUT IN A PREDATORY WAY. THAT CLARIFICATION REALLY NEEDS TO BE CLEAR. >>I WOULD ALSO ENCOURAGE, IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY, DISCUSSED THIS SPECIFICALLY WITH THE CITY ATTORNEY’S OFFICE AS WELL. TO MAKE SURE WE ARE CLEAR ON SPECIFIC LANGUAGE AND THAT WE HAVE A COMMON UNDERSTANDING. >>WHAT I AM HEARING IS THAT YOU ARE OPEN TO ADDING CLARIFYING LANGUAGE. >>OPEN TO HAVE A CONVERSATION, MAKING SURE WE ARE ON THE SAME PAGE. >>THANK YOU. I THINK THE FOUNDATIONAL QUESTION IS, DOES THE COUNCIL AGREE THIS IS A PROBLEM? DOES THE COUNCIL AGREE THAT THESE CONDITIONS, THESE SQUALOR CONDITIONS ARE NOT FIT FOR OUR FELLOW CITIZENS? IF SO, I THINK YOU DO. WORK WITH US TO PERFECT THE LEGISLATION. THE CHAIR BROUGHT THIS AS A DRAFT FOR PARTLY THIS REASON. WE ARE VERY INTERESTED IN DOING THIS RIGHT. WORKING WITH COUNSEL STAFF, BUT THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TENTS AND SOME OF THE OTHER CONDITIONS, THIS IS AN ISSUE THE CITY HAS A ROLE AND CURRENTLY. THERE IS AN INHUMANE SUPPLY CHAIN OF RVS THAT ARE PUTTING THE MOST VULNERABLE CITIZENS AT RISK. THE CITY HAS I BELIEVE A MORAL OBLIGATION BECAUSE WE ARE INVOLVED IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN TO SAY THAT IT IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. TO PUT FORWARD THE BEST PROPOSAL TO REMEDY THE SITUATION. WE ARE VERY INTERESTED IN WORKING WITH THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH TO PERFECT THE LEGISLATION. I THINK YOU SHARE THE VALUES. ABOUT THESE CITIZENS. WE SHOULD NOT BE PART OF A SYSTEM THAT ALLOWS FOR A REVOLVING DOOR OF A PREDATORY SYSTEM WITHIN THE CITY OF SEATTLE. >>AGAIN, I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT, IT WOULD BE HELPFUL WHEN WE ARE TALKING. IF WE ARE TALKING NARROWLY ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE BEING PREDATORY, THESE DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS ARE EVERYWHERE. THERE ARE PLENTY OF PEOPLE WHO ARE SLEEPING WITHOUT SANITATION. ALL OF THOSE THINGS. AND IF, I READ THE ARTICLE. IT TALKS ABOUT TWO PEOPLE. ONE WHO I THINK WAS OUT OF THE BUSINESS. ONE WAS DOWN TO ONE RV. HE SAID MAYBE OF THE 800 RVS, WE WERE TALKING FIVE. ARE WE TALKING 300? >>BECAUSE THIS IS A SITUATION WE ARE ACTIVELY ENFORCING, IT IS DIFFICULT TO DO A CENSUS OF THAT. WE HAVE THE ANECDOTAL REPORTS. >>CALVIN, WHEN YOU ASKED THE QUESTION, DO WE AGREE THIS IS A PROBLEM? IF THERE ARE THREE RVS THAT ARE BEING PREDATORY, $40 PER WEEK, THAT IS NOT THE MOST IMPORTANT PROBLEM TO BE DISCUSSING RIGHT NOW. IF IT IS 300, IT IS. MAYBE ON THE LIST. I WOULD EXPECT SOMEONE TO GET THAT INFORMATION. SIMILAR TO THE COUNCILMEMBER, WHEN I READ AT THE LEGISLATION OR LOOK AT THE SUMMARY HERE, HOW DO YOU DISTINGUISH? THE PICTURES OF THESE ARE DEPLORABLE, RIGHT? YOU KNOW, THERE ARE THESE COMPLETELY UNINHABITABLE. I DON’T KNOW IF SOMEONE IS ACTUALLY LIVING IN THOSE AT THE MOMENT. I HAVE BEEN THROUGH RVS THAT, DOING OUTREACH STUFF, I SEE ONES THAT ARE MUCH MORE LIVABLE. THEY PROBABLY FAILED THE TEST. I DON’T KNOW IF THEY HAVE A BATHROOM THAT WORKS. OF THEM DON’T SEEM TO. THEY MIGHT NOT BE OPERATING BUT IT IS STILL PROVIDING SHELTER THAT IS A SIGNIFICANT UPGRADE FROM A TENT. >>AND SIMILARLY, THERE ARE PEOPLE, WHEN I LOOK AT SOME OF THESE PICTURES, THEY REMIND ME OF PEOPLE WHO ARE BOARDING HOUSES AND EVERYWHERE ELSE. IT WOULDN’T SURPRISE ME IF THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES. THE IDEA THAT WE WILL IMPOUND YOUR MAC VEHICLE AND PUT THEM ON THE STREET AS OPPOSED TO MAKING SURE THEY HAVE ACCESS TO MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT. >>I KNOW TEST WAS HOPING TO GET THERE. BUT TO YOUR CONCERN AND OTHERS. IF THIS PROPOSAL WAS TO PASS, THESE DEPLORABLE CONDITIONS, THESE UNSAFE SQUALID RVS, IF THEY WOULD BE APPROPRIATELY JOHN, WHAT ARE THE WRAPAROUND SERVICES? TEST HAS BEEN TRYING TO GET TO THAT POINT. I’M NOT SURE IF I AM ALLOWED THAT OR NOT. >>THIS WAS THE FIFTH TIME, IT SEEMS THAT WE ALWAYS JUMP THE GUN AND DON’T LET YOU DO YOUR PRESENTATION. I WONDER IF WE COULD ALLOW YOU TO DO THAT? MAYBE AT THE SAME TIME YOU COULD TALK ABOUT, IN YOUR MIND, IN TIM’S MIND, HOW WILL THE PROCESS BE AN INITIATED? IF SOMEBODY, IS THAT SOME OF THE INTERNALLY WHO IS LIVING THERE? I DOUBT OFTENTIMES THEY WOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT GETTING TOSSED OUT. IF THEY WERE TO, IF THEY WERE TO REPORT THE PERSON WHO IS RENTING. MAYBE YOU COULD JUST WALK THROUGH AND TELL US WHAT IT IS YOU ALL ARE THINKING ABOUT? HOW THE PROCESS WORKS? AND WE CAN RESPOND AGAIN AFTER WE HEAR MORE. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AGAIN, TEST WILL BE WITH THE MAYOR’S OFFICE. SO WE HAVE DEFINITELY BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE GOAL OF THE LEGISLATION IN TERMS OF STOPPING AUDITORY BEHAVIOR. FOLKS WHO ARE ALLOWING PEOPLE TO OCCUPY RVS THAT ARE EXPOSED TO HEALTH AND SAFETY HAZARDS. WE UNDERSTAND WE ARE REMOVING THESE VEHICLES FROM CIRCULATION IT OFTEN CAUSES OCCUPANTS DOES SEEK ALTERNATIVE SHELTER. WITH RVS OCCUPIED IT, THEY ARE TOED AND SYSTEM NAVIGATORS ARE USED WITHIN THE 72 HOUR PERIOD. THERE INCLUDED ON THE DAY OF THE CLEAN. THE WAY THEY WORK WITH THE FOLKS LIVING IN AND KIMMONS, THE OFFER SERVICES SUCH AS RECONNECTING PEOPLE TO CASE MANAGEMENT. IT IS ACTUALLY THE PRIMARY SERVICE PEOPLE ARE ASKING FOR, TO GET IN TOUCH WITH THE FOLKS THEY ALREADY HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH. THOSE OF THE FOLKS WHO CAN ACTUALLY LONG-TERM HELP THEM ACCESS BEHAVIORAL HEALTH OR GRAMS, ACCESS HOUSING AND HELP THEM GENERALLY BECOME STABLE. THE NAVIGATOR OF COURSE ALSO OFFER SHELTER. THEY KNOW WHICH SHELTER HAVE AVAILABLE BEDS SO THEY CAN REFER PEOPLE TO SHELTER. THAT SHELTER INCLUDES VILLAGES AND WE KNOW THE VILLAGES ARE IN FACT THE TYPE OF SHELTER THAT IS MOST OFTEN REQUESTED. SO THAT ADDRESSES IN PART THE ISSUE OF PEOPLE BEING ABLE TO KEEP PETS WITH THEM OR COUPLES BEING ABLE TO FIND A PLACE TO STAY AS WELL. SO I WILL SAY THE NAVIGATION CENTER ALSO ADDRESSES THOSE NEEDS. THAT ADMITTEDLY, BASIC SHELTER DOES NOT ADDRESS. SO WHEN A REFERRAL IS EXCEPTED, THE NAVIGATORS CAN OFFER TRANSPORTATION AND THEY OFTEN DO YOU THE TRANSPORTATION THEMSELVES TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU WILL HAVE ACCESS AND ARE ABLE TO GET TO THE SHELTER. AS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW THIS WORKS IN REAL LIFE, LAST MONTH, THE RV REMEDIATION TEAM ENCOUNTERED A KNOWN CAR RANCHER DURING A CLEANUP EVENT IN GEORGETOWN. THE INDIVIDUALS ALSO LIVING IN THE VEHICLE WITH SIGNIFICANT DEBRIS AND INFECTIOUS WASTE. AT FIRST THE INDIVIDUAL WAS VERY CONFRONTATIONAL BUT BECAME MUCH, WHEN THE NAVIGATION TEAM WAS CALLED TO MAKE CONTACT AND OFFER OUTREACH SERVICES. EVENTUALLY THEY ACCEPTED SHELTER AND WERE TRANSFERRED TO THAT SHELTER. SO IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND, PEOPLE WHO ARE OCCUPYING RVS GENERALLY DON’T CONSIDER THEMSELVES TO BE HOMELESS. AND THE ACCEPTANCE OF SERVICES OR SHELTER MAY NOT HAPPEN REGULARLY. IN FACT, IN DATA WE HAVE SEEN RECENTLY, IT HAPPENS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 10-50% OF THE TIME. THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT WE GIVE UP ON THEM IF THEY SAY THEY DON’T WANT SERVICES. THE NAVIGATORS CONTINUE TO WORK WITH EVERYONE TO ENSURE THEY KNOW WHAT OPTIONS ARE. THAT THEY CAN HELP THEM FIND AN ALTERNATIVE SAFE SPACE. IN ADDITION TO PROVIDING SUPPORT TO OCCUPANTS THROUGHOUT THE SYSTEM NAVIGATORS, WE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE ACCESS TO REIMBURSEMENT OF COSTS THAT ARE INCURRED. SUCH AS THOSE FOR RELOCATION. AGAIN, UNDERSTANDING THAT THEY ARE GOING TO NEED TO LOOK FOR ALTERNATIVE SHELTER. SO FOR THAT REASON, WE HAVE INCLUDED A RESTITUTION REQUIREMENT FOR UP TO $2000 FOR VIOLATORS THAT HELPS FOLKS. >>DO YOU THINK THAT IS REALISTIC? DO YOU THINK THE RANCHERS HAVE MONEY? >>I THINK SOME RANCHERS DO. >>I THINK THEY DO. >>DO YOU THINK PEOPLE HAVE THE WHEREWITHAL TO CHECK THE RANCHERS? >>I THINK THIS LEGISLATION GIVES US THE ABILITY TO WORK WITH THEM IN THE COURT SYSTEM. TO HAVE THAT HAPPEN. AND ABSENT IS SOMETHING LIKE THIS, WE DO NOT HAVE THAT ABILITY. >>THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. TEST, THANK YOU FOR DOING THE OUTRAGE SLIDE. I THINK YOUR OUTREACH ELEMENTS FOCUS ON THOSE WEAPONS THE COMES OF THIS TYPE OF PREDATORY RENTAL SCHEME. IT IS IMPORTANT. WE WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE TYPE OF LANGUAGE INCLUDED IN THE LEGISLATION. I THINK THAT IS AN IMPORTANT ELEMENT. HOWEVER, THE FACT THAT WHEN WE TALKED ABOUT OUTREACH AND ENFORCEMENT, IT WAS REALLY AGAIN FOCUSED ON THE OCCUPANT OF THESE VEHICLES. THESE RVS. UNDERSCORES TO ME THAT WE ARE NOT THINKING ABOUT THE INDIVIDUAL ENTITY OR THE INDIVIDUAL PERSON WHO IS ENGAGING AS A CAR RANCHER. IN FACT, WE HADN’T EVEN DEFINED WHAT A CAR RANCHER IS IN THIS LEGISLATION OR DEFINED THE ENTITY OR INDIVIDUAL THAT IS RENTING OUT OR MARKETING THESE UNSAFE PRODUCTS. IF WE WANT THIS LEGISLATION TO BE FOCUSED ON THE PREDATORY NATURE AND THE PREDATORY CROP UP IN THE STREET OR MARKET THAT HAS BECOME A HUGE PROBLEM, POINT OF CONCERN FOR US WHEN WE LOOK AT THESE PICTURES, ANECDOTALLY, WE NEED THE DATA AS COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN SAID, TO UNDERSTAND WHETHER OR NOT IT IS HUGE IN TERMS OF PRESENCE IN OUR CITY. IT WILL BE HELPFUL TO HAVE DEFINITIONS OF WHAT THE CAR RANCHER IS OR THE MARKET VERSUS SAYING NO PERSON SHALL ALLOW ANOTHER PERSON TO OCCUPY A VEHICLE. I WORRY THAT IT IS SO INCREDIBLY BROAD THAT PEOPLE MIGHT TAKE IT UPON THEMSELVES TO SAY YOU CANNOT BE HERE BECAUSE THE ORDINANCE PASSED. WE NEED TO BE SPECIFIC IN THE LEGISLATION OF WHO IT IS. THAT THIS TYPE OF PENALTY SHOULD APPLY TO AND WHAT THE INTENT OF THE PENALTY IS IN ADDITION TO THE GOOD OUTREACH YOU JUST OUTLINED. I APPRECIATE THAT FOR THE FOLKS WHO HAVE BEEN VICTIM TO THIS TYPE OF PREDATORY MARKETING AND VICTIM TO THE FACT THAT WE HAVEN’T CREATED ENOUGH SHELTER AROUND THE CITY. I DO HAVE TO GO. I WANT TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION DIRECTLY. YOU ASKED THE QUESTION, DOES THE COUNCIL SHARE THE CONCERN OF INDIVIDUALS LIVING IN THIS TYPE OF SITUATION. I THINK FROM THE LAST YEAR AND A HALF THAT I HAVE BEEN ON COUNSEL, IT IS VERY CLEAR TO ME THAT THE FULL COUNSEL SHARES THE CONCERN OF PEOPLE LIVING IN UNSAFE CONDITION. THAT IS WHY WE HAVE CALLED FOR ADDITIONAL FUNDING. ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR ENHANCED SHELTERS. WE HAVE DONE MORE TO TRY TO HELP PEOPLE GET ACCESS TO HEALTH SERVICES ACROSS THE CITY AND FRANKLY, WHY WE HAVE EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE OTHER SERVICES WE KNOW NEED FUNDING, WE HAVE CONTINUED TO INVEST IN THE ROBUST REQUEST THAT COME FROM THE EXECUTIVES AROUND THE NAVIGATION SERVICES. THE NAVIGATION TEAM, SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE WE WANT PEOPLE TO GET ACCESS TO THE HUMAN SERVICES ELEMENT OF IT. ALL OF THAT SHOULD UNDERSCORE A SHARED INTEREST. BUT WHEN YOU ASK HIM IT DOESN’T MATTER OR DO WE SHARE THE SAME LEVEL OF INTEREST WHEN WE ARE LOOKING AT SPECIFIC LEGISLATION, WE HAVE TO LOOK AT THE LANGUAGE HERE. LEGISLATION MATTERS. THE WORDS AND NOT LEGISLATION MATTER. TO THE EXTENT THAT WE ARE NOT BEING SPECIFIC ENOUGH TO THE INDUSTRY, THE MARKETING, TARGETING, THE TRUCK PREDATORY NATURE THAT HAS CROPPED UP, IT REALLY DOES LEAVE OPEN THE QUESTION OF WHO WE ARE TRYING TO GET AT AND WHAT THE CONSEQUENCES WILL BE. THE INCREDIBLE SPEAKER I HAD THE CHANCE TO SIT WITH AT U HEIGHTS, HE SAID WHEN HE LOOKED AT THIS LEGISLATION, HE SAW THAT THIS WAS DIRECTED AT THE VEHICLE AND NOT THE PEOPLE. AND YES, IF WE WANT TO LOOK AT THE TYPE OF VEHICLES THAT ARE BEING RENTED, WE HAVE TO LOOK AT WHO IS RENTING THOSE VEHICLES AND WITHOUT CLARIFICATION IN THIS LEGISLATION, IT IS I THINK SENDING THE WRONG MESSAGE ACROSS THE CITY THAT THOSE LIVING IN THIS TYPE OF SITUATION, IT IS THE PEOPLE WITHIN IT THAT WILL SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES VERSUS US INTENTIONALLY GOING AFTER THOSE WHO ARE PREYING ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO OTHER OPTIONS. I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU ON AMENDMENTS. I AM NOT CLEAR IF THIS IS, AS COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN SAID, THE RIGHT APPROACH TO GETTING AT THE CONCERNS WE SEE BUT WHETHER O NOT THE COUNSEL SHARES OUR CONCERNS ABOUT PEOPLE LIVING IN THIS TYPE OF CONDITION, I’M EQUIVOCAL BILLY, WITH UNEQUIVOCALLY DO NOT WANT PEOPLE TO BE LIVING THERE. WE WILL WORK WITH YOU ALL TO FIND ALTERNATIVES TO THAT. I AM NOT SURE THAT THIS IS THE RIGHT VEHICLE IF YOU WILL TO GET US THERE. >>I APPRECIATE THE COMMENTS,, COUNCIL MEMBER. MY COMMENTS WERE AT THIS LEGISLATION. I APPRECIATE THAT CONTACTS. I THINK WE SHOULD BE VERY CLEAR ABOUT WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT. THESE ARE INHUMANE CONDITIONS. RUN BY SLUMLORDS ON WHEELS. AND THESE CONDITIONS ARE NOT FIT FOR A DOG. PART OF THE FAS OVERSIGHT IS ANIMAL SHELTERS. IF THERE WERE ANIMALS LIVING LIKE THIS, WE WOULD CEASE THOSE ANIMALS. AND PLEASE TELL ME THAT SEATTLE IS NOT A PLACE THAT WOULD NOT ALLOW A DOG TO LIVE BUT WE WOULD ALLOW HUMAN BEINGS TO LIVE. WE ARE ABSOLUTELY COMMITTED TO GETTING THIS PITCH PERFECT. WE WOULD VERY MUCH WELCOME WORKING WITH YOU. THAT IS AGAIN WHY I THINK THE CHAIR RIGHTFULLY BROUGHT THIS LEGISLATION AS A DRAFT TO ENGAGE IN THIS DIALOGUE. WE LOOK FORWARD TO DOING SO. >>GREAT. THANK YOU. TEST, DID YOU WANT TO CONTINUE? I THINK YOU HAD SOMETHING ELSE. >>I WAS THE FIRST WANT TO INTERRUPT. YOU WANT TO CONTINUE? WHERE I LEFT OFF WAS, WHETHER OR NOT WE WILL USE THE TERM RANCHERS. IF THEY ACTUALLY HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY. >>SO AGAIN, WE BELIEVE THAT THEY DO. WE BELIEVE THIS IS, WE ALSO THINK THIS IS AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO SEND TO RANCHERS. AN INCENTIVE TO CONTINUE TO DO THIS. WE BELIEVE THIS IS THE APPROPRIATE LEVEL. FRANKLY, THERE WAS A LOT OF CONVERSATION AND THE INTERDEPARTMENTAL TEAM MEETINGS ABOUT HOW TO ENSURE THAT THE LEGISLATION IS ALSO DRAFTED IN A WAY TO PROTECT AND PREVENT THE FOLKS THAT ARE BEING PRAYED UPON. AND WE BELIEVE THAT THIS IS THE RIGHT COURSE TO TAKE. >>>>DO WE HAVE MONEY LEFT OVER FROM THE LAST TIME WE ASKED TO HAVE ANOTHER VILLAGE BUILT? JUST THIS WEEK I HAVE TALKED WITH A COUPLE OF INDIVIDUALS REACHING OUT TO SOME OF THE FAITH INSTITUTIONS THAT ARE SAYING THEY WERE WILLING TO RECONSIDER AND PUT IN SOME TINY HOMES IN THE PARKING LOT. I WOULD FEEL MUCH BETTER IF AS PART OF THIS, WE COULD HAVE SET UP IN ADVANCE PLACES FOR PEOPLE TO GO. I KNOW WE ARGUE ALL THE TIME THAT TINY HOMES ARE INHUMANE AS WELL. I HEAR THAT. NOBODY SAYS THEY WANT PEOPLE LIVING IN TINY HOMES FOREVER. AS A BRIDGE, BETTER THAN A TENT. BETTER THAN THIS DILAPIDATED, MOLD INFESTED, WHATEVER YOU’VE GOT. I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO SAY THAT THIS INDIVIDUAL, THIS IS AN INHUMANE PLACE TO LIVE. WE WANT TO OFFER YOU SOMETHING BETTER. >>I WISH I COULD GET IT INSIDE THAT I WOULD RATHER HAVE SOMEBODY HAVE SOMETHING WITH RUNNING WATER CLOSE. WITH COOKING FACILITIES CLOSE. WITH A ROOF OVER THEIR HEAD AND A DOOR THEY CAN LOCK. IT WOULD COST US BY THOUSAND DOLLARS A PIECE OR SOME OF THIS MODULAR’S WE ARE LOOKING AT, I REALLY BELIEVE THAT WE NEED TO GET PLACES SET UP SO WE CAN DIRECT PEOPLE WHERE TO GO. >>THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER. THAT IS THE REASON WHY THE MAYOR SET UP 500 ADDITIONAL SHELTER BEDS. WHY OUR EMPHASIS HAS BEEN ON ENHANCED SHELTER. AND ON SUPPORTING THE EXISTING VILLAGES. WE COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU. IT IS IMPORTANT TO PROVIDE SHELTER THAT IS, THAT PROVIDES ALL OF THE BASICALLY HUMAN NEEDS. AND THE NECESSARY SERVICES FOR FOLKS. WE THINK THE APPROACH WITH THE SYSTEM NAVIGATORS, MAKING SURE THAT THEY HAVE OFFERS, THAT THEY KNOW WHICH SHELTERS HAVE BEDS. WHICH VILLAGES HAVE SPACE, THAT IT IS CRITICAL TO THE SUCCESS OF THIS. AND I WILL NOTE THAT BOTH ENHANCED SHELTER AND THE NAVIGATION CENTER AND IN VILLAGES, THERE ARE CASE MANAGERS, STAFF AVAILABLE TO REALLY HELP PEOPLE TAKE THE NEXT STEPTOWARDS HOUSING. >>THE QUESTION IS, ARE THEY FULL? DO THEY NEED MORE? CAN WE ACCOMMODATE THE 500? BLESS YOU AND BLESS THE MAYOR FOR HAVING I’VE HUNDRED MORE BEDS. DO WE NEED MORE TO BE ABLE TO HAVE OPEN SPACES FOR THESE INDIVIDUALS IF WE ARE GOING AND SAYING THIS RV IS IMPOSSIBLE? IF IT IS ONE BEING LEASED OUT INAPPROPRIATELY, CAN WE SAY TO THAT INDIVIDUAL, WE HAVE A BED BUT NOT JUST AN OVERNIGHT SHELTER. WE HAVE A PLACE FOR YOU TO GO. IS THERE SPACE NOW? OR DO WE HAVE TO DO A FAST TRACK TO SAY WE NEED 50 MORE. >>TELL ME WHERE WE ARE. >>WHAT WE HAVE SEEN NOW, MOVING TO ENHANCED SHELTER, IT HAS DEFINITELY IMPROVED. ENHANCED SHELTER HAS A BETTER RATE OF EXITING PEOPLE TO PERMANENT HOUSING. THE VILLAGES ARE ALSO IMPROVING. IT CREATES OPPORTUNITIES AND CREATES VACANCIES IN BEDS. IT HAS FOLKS LIVING OUTSIDE AS WELL. FOR FOLKS WHO ARE IN THIS KIND OF INHUMANE SITUATION, IN RVS AND ALSO AS YOU KNOW, THE NAVIGATION TEAM THAT IS WORKING IN AND KAMPMANN’S, THEY HAVE A SIMILAR OPPORTUNITY TO OFFER PEOPLE INTO SHELTER. THEY ONLY OFFER IT WHEN THEY KNOW THAT THERE ARE SHELTER BEDS AVAILABLE. SO THAT IS PART OF THE RATIONALE TO REALLY MOVING INTO A SHELTER SYSTEM AND A SHELTER MODEL THAT HAS MORE HEIGHTENED SERVICES AND IS MUCH MORE FOCUSED THROUGH THEIR HOUSING NAVIGATORS ON MOVING PEOPLE INTO SAFE, STABLE HOUSING. >>COUNCILMEMBER O’BRIEN? >>THE LAST DATA I SAW ON ENHANCED SHELTERS SHOW THEY ARE ESSENTIALLY FULL. THERE IS A 1-2 PERCENT VACANCY RATE. IS THAT STILL ROUGHLY ACCURATE? >>I THINK YOU ARE REFERRING TO THE UTILIZATION RATES. WE ACTUALLY LIKE A HIGH UTILIZATION RATE. IT SHOWS THAT THERE ARE NOT BEDS GOING WANT THEM. IT DOESN’T MING THAT ON ANY GIVEN NIGHT THAT ALL OF THE BEDS ARE UTILIZED, WHICH IS WHY THERE ARE REGULARLY BEDS AVAILABLE FOR THE NAVIGATION TEAM TO REFER TO. SOME OF THE BEDS GET HELD SPECIFICALLY FOR FOLKS BEING REFERRED TO THEM. BUT THEN, QUITE FRANKLY, IF THEY DON’T GET FILLED BY THE NAVIGATION TEAM, THERE ARE PEOPLE STILL AVAILABLE TO FILL THEM. THE GOAL REALLY, THIS MIGHT SOUND COUNTERINTUITIVE, BUT THE GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE THERE IS SPACE AVAILABLE FOR THE NAVIGATION TEAM AND TO MAKE SURE THE BEDS ARE FILLED SO WE DON’T DELIBERATELY HAVE PEOPLE SLEEPING OUTSIDE. >>I THINK WHAT YOU SAID IS CONSISTENT WITH MY UNDERSTANDING. IN GENERAL, THE BEDS ARE FULL. WE HAVE PEOPLE TO FILL THEM UP WE MIGHT YOUR TIES POPULATION AT DIFFERENT TIMES BUT WE ARE STRUGGLING TO FIND PEOPLE TO GET INTO THEM. SIMILARLY, ON THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING SIDE, THE LAST I UNDERSTOOD WAS IT WAS A REALLY LONG WAIT LIST TO GET INTO THAT. ON ANY GIVEN NIGHT, THERE IS TURNOVER. THERE MIGHT BE NEW SPOTS WHILE THE GET PEOPLE TO MOVE IN. BUT WE DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING OR ENHANCED SHELTERS. WE JUST CAN’T FIND PEOPLE. >>SO THE CHALLENGE FOR ME, WELL I GUESS WE HAVE SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ON THIS LEGISLATION. MAYBE WE WILL GET FEEDBACK. >>SO THE LEGISLATIVE SUMMARY TALKS ABOUT THE DAMAGED VEHICLES AND SAYS TO THESE CONDITIONS NEED TO BE MET. IS THAT ONLY IN THE CASE OF THE VEHICLE BEING BRANCHED OR ANY VEHICLE WITH HESITATION. >>HOW DO WE DETERMINE IF IT IS BEING HARASSED? >>THEY WOULD NEED TO BE, SOMEONE WOULD NEED TO REPORT IN FACT THAT THEY HAD BEEN IN FACT THE DEMISE. OR THAT SOMEBODY HAD ENGAGED IN THIS BEHAVIOR. >>WOULD IT BE THE TENANT WOULD SAY THAT? OR COULD ANYONE SAY THAT? >>IT COULD BE THE TENANT. BUT I WOULD ASK THAT YOU PROBABLY SHOULD DIRECT SOME OF THESE QUESTIONS TO LAW BECAUSE IT WILL PLAY OUT. IN A COURT SYSTEM. THE WAY THAT WE ARE SEEING THIS HAPPEN ON THE GROUND, AT LEAST IN TERMS OF HOW OUR STAFF ARE INTERACTING WITH PEOPLE AFFECTED BY THIS, AN INDIVIDUAL WILL SAY I AM A VICTIM OF THIS CONDITION. I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO OR HOW TO ADDRESS THE SITUATION. IN THAT CASE, WE IMAGINE THAT WE COULD SAY THIS WAS A VEHICLE FOR YOU TO PURSUE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED. CHARGES COULD THEN BE FILED AGAINST A PERSON WHO IS IN FACT THE OWNER OF THE VEHICLE. >>SO IT SOUNDS LIKE THERE WOULD NEED TO BE A PROCESS IN PLACE TO DETERMINE THAT. I WOULD LOVE TO DO IT ADVANCE OF PASSING THIS LEGISLATION, HAVE THE PROCESS PLAY OUT A BIT SO THAT WE CAN DETERMINE IF THERE ARE 10 OF THESE OR 100 OF THESE. HOW LIKELY ARE WE TO BE USING THIS? THAT WOULD BE REALLY INFORMATIVE, >>WE GOT CAUGHT UP IN THE EARLIER CONVERSATION BUT WE HAVE HAD REPORTS, PERHAPS DOZENS OF CONDITIONS LIKE THIS. THEY EXIST ON THE GROUND. WE DIDN’T HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO ANSWER THAT EARLIER. IT IS NOT ONE OR TWO. BUT AGAIN, I WILL STRESS THAT GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE VEHICULAR LIVING, IT IS A CHANGING SITUATION. ON A DAILY BASIS. I THINK TEST MENTIONED THIS EARLIER, THERE IS BENEFIT TO HAVING THIS ON THE BOOK IN TERMS OF HOW IT WOULD IS COURAGE THE PRACTICE IN THE FUTURE. >>SO ANOTHER QUESTION, IT WOULD BE GREAT TO GET A LITTLE MORE DATA ON THAT. AS WE MOVE FORWARD, THE, I WOULD ALSO LOVE CLARITY ON IF A TENANT IS LIKE, I DON’T WANT TO&. I WISH I WEREN’T PAYING $40 A MONTH OR WEEK OR WHATEVER. 10 IS MORE FAIR. OR THE LANDLORD WON’T GIVE ME ACCESS TO THIS OR IS BEING ABUSIVE. THE ARTICLE TALKED ABOUT DRUGS, SEX TRADE, THOSE TYPES OF THINGS. OBVIOUSLY, THAT IS COMPLETELY ILLEGAL AND INAPPROPRIATE AND WE SHOULD ACT ON THAT IF IT IS GOING ON. BUT I WANT TO BE CLEAR IF THIS IS GOING TO BE A TOOL THAT SOMEONE SAYS, I SUSPECT THIS IS GOING AND WE WILL TAKE AWAY SOMEONE’S HOUSING. OR IF IT IS ONLY USING THE CASE WHERE A PERSON SAYS I NEED YOU TO HELP ME GET OUT OF THE SITUATION. IF THE RESULT IS THAT IT GETS IMPLANTED, IT IS OKAY. BUT THE WAY IT IS BEING DRAFTED AND INTERPRETED, PEOPLE WILL IMPOSE THIS UPON TENANT’S. >>THAT IS NOT THE INTENT. I THINK FOR US TO, THERE WERE TO OCCUPY HAS COME UP A LITTLE BIT. I WANT TO STRESS THAT THE OPTING OF USING THE WORD OCCUPY AS OPPOSED TO ALLOWING PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN VICTIMIZED BY THIS CONDITION. IN THEIR ABILITY TO PROVE WHAT THE CONDITIONS OF THEIR AGREEMENT WERE. >>YOU ALL HAVE MADE REFERENCES TO THE CITIES ATTORNEY’S OFFICE. I CAN APPRECIATE THAT. I CAN APPRECIATE THAT THERE IS A LOT OF TENANT LANDLORD STUFF. BUT UNDERSTANDING THE POLICY I THINK IS IMPORTANT TO ME. WE CAN DISCUSS THAT HERE. SO TO WHAT I HEAR YOU SAYING IS THAT THE INTENT IS ONLY WOULD THE INTENT OF THE OCCUPANT WOULD WE PURSUE THIS. THERE IS A QUESTION ABOUT THIS. SO IF I HAD AN EXTRA RV AND SAID YOU COULD USE IT FOR FREE AND I WILL MOVE IT AROUND EVERY THREE DAYS, I DON’T DO THAT FOR PEOPLE OUT THERE WATCHING. THAT IF ONE WANTED TO DO THAT, THEY ARE NOT PAYING RENT. I AM NOT PROFITING OFF OF THIS. BUT THERE HAS BEEN A QUESTION RAISED ABOUT WHETHER THEY PAY RENT OR NOT. I SUSPECT THAT, IF I GET THIS CORRECT, THEY MIGHT NOT BE PAYING RENT BUT THERE WOULD BE OTHER FORMS OF COMPENSATION LIKE SEX ACTS, DRUG TRADE, ALL OF THAT. YOU WANT TO INCLUDE ALL OF THAT? >>THAT IS THE INTENT. I WANT TO STRESS THE CONDITION YOU ARE PUTTING FORWARD. IT IS NOT ABOUT ANY RV OR VEHICLE. IT IS ABOUT A SEVERELY DAMAGED PUBLIC HEALTH HAZARD. IT IS A VERY SPECIFIC SUBSET OF THESE. >>IT IS VERY NARROW. WHAT YOU’RE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH IN THIS LEGISLATION. >>VERY NARROW. IS A THREE OR 300? PROBABLY IN THE DOZENS. WE FEEL THAT BEING AWARE OF EVEN HALF-DOZEN OR A DOZEN PEOPLE WHO ARE BEING VICTIMIZED IN THIS REVOLVING DOOR, THIS PREDATORY CYCLE IS TOO MANY. THE EXECUTIVE REALLY WANTS TO WORK WITH THE COUNCIL TO GET THIS RIGHT, WHICH WOULD ADDRESS A SMALL PIECE. THE PIECE THAT WE CAN ADDRESS TODAY HERE AND NOW. >>SO A SUGGESTION WOULD BE, I APPRECIATE THAT CLARIFICATION. THAT HELPS. I HAD THAT YOU HAD TO WRITE THIS WITH LAW OVERSIGHT. AND IT IS A DRAFT THAT IS BEING INTRODUCED. >>CLARITY AROUND ALL OF THAT WILL BE HELPFUL. >>A SUGGESTION, I HAVEN’T THOUGHT THIS THROUGH. NOR HAVE I TALKED TO THE CITY ATTORNEY BUT INSTEAD OF COMING AT THIS FROM A NEGATIVE ANGLE, OMING FROM A MORE POSITIVEANGLE, SAYING SOMEONE IS RENTING A PLACE, WE WILL SET UP A VEHICLE INSPECTION PROGRAM JUST LIKE WE DO WITH RENTALS. AND IF SOMEONE SAYS THIS IS NOT MY VEHICLE, THERE IS A LANDLORD, WHETHER I AM PAYING POSITION, MONETARY COMPENSATION OR SOMETHING ELSE, WHATEVER THAT IS, YOU CAN SAY THAT IS THE CASE. WE NEED TO CONNECT WITH THE LANDLORD AND GET CERTAIN THAT THEY MADE CERTAIN CRITERIA. THERE MIGHT BE A VEHICLE ON THE SIDE. IT HAS BEEN GOOD TO GO. AND SOME PENALTY IF A LANDLORD FAILS TO GO THROUGH THAT. YOU KNOW, THE ARTICLE THAT TALKED TO A COUPLE OF THESE, I HAVEN’T MET ANY OF THESE RANCHERS, IT IS HARD TO TELL WHAT THE MOTIVES ARE, OF COURSE IN THE PRESS THEY SOUND LIKE SOMEWHAT GENEROUS HUMAN BEINGS THAT ARE TRYING TO MAKE A FEW BUCKS. NOT A LOT. BUT THEY ARE TRYING TO HELP PEOPLE GET HOUSING. BUT I WANT TO BE CLEAR THAT THERE MIGHT BE SOME PRETTY AWFUL PEOPLE WHO TAKE ADVANTAGE. WE WANT TO SUBMIT ON. BUT SOME PROGRAM THAT IS A LITTLE MORE, FEELS A LITTLE LESS THREATENING AND SAY THERE IS A PATH TO DO THIS IF YOU WANT TO RENT THEM OUT. THIS IS WHAT WE REQUIRE. IF YOU DON’T DO THAT, WE WILL ENFORCE AND WE WILL FIND HOUSING FOR THE OTHER FOLKS. AT THE END OF THE DAY, THIS SOUNDS LIKE IT IT IS A NARROW PROGRAM. THIS LEGISLATION, THE INTENT IS TO NEARLY DEFINE THAT. WE HAVE HUNDREDS OF VEHICLES OUT THERE AFTER THE SYSTEM. MANY OF WHICH ARE PROBABLY, MOST OF WHICH WOULDN’T MEET OUR STANDARDS OF ACCEPTABLE LIVING. MAYBE NOT AS DEPLORABLE AS THOSE IN THE FOREST BUT IT IS NOT A LONG-TERM SOLUTION. THE BEST WAY FOR US TO SOLVE THE CRISIS IS WE GIVE PEOPLE BETTER OPTIONS. AND WHEN WE ARE TAKING AWAY THE BEST OPTION THEY HAVE, THAT IS WHEN IT FEELS, I LOOK AT A YOU SHOW ME THE PICTURE. THAT IS AN AWFUL OPTION. IF THAT WERE MY BEST OPTION AT THE MOMENT, TAKING THAT AWAY MAKES IT EVEN WORSE OFF. IF THESE PEOPLE ARE MAKING BAD DECISIONS BECAUSE THEY HAVE MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES, WE NEED TO GET SOME TREATMENT. THIS IS THE BEST OPTION THEY HAVE, HOW DO WE GET THEM INTO SOMETHING BETTER IS THE THING THAT WILL HELP? >>WE CAN DRIVE THEM OUT OF BUSINESS BY PROVIDING ENOUGH AFFORDABLE HOUSING, AND OF ENHANCED SHELTER. WE ARE TRYING. WE HAD 500 AND THEY FILL UP. THAT IS A CHALLENGE. >>I WOULD JUST POINT OUT THAT THIS PARTICULAR LEGISLATION CREATES AN OPTION TO ACTUALLY GET SOME RESTITUION. AND TO POTENTIALLY TRANSITION TO SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT MORE SUBSTANTIAL. CURRENTLY, WE DO NOT HAVE THAT. >>WHAT I WOULD SUGGEST, I BELIEVE SIMILAR TO THE LANDLORD, JUST FOR FEEDBACK, THE CITY WOULD PROVIDE THE RESTITUTION AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR COLLECTING IT. KEEP KICKING A TENANT OUT AND SOMEDAY YOU MIGHT GET SOME MONEY, BUT THE GUY THAT WAS JUST EVICTED, I CAN’T IMAGINE HE HAS A BUNCH OF CASH. HE WILL JUST HAVE A JUDGMENT. IS LIKE HE IS LIVING IN AN RV TWO. HE IS PRIOR OTHER PROBLEM. SO THE CITY FEELS STRONGLY ABOUT THIS, LET’S PUT UP SOME MONEY AND SAY WHEN THIS HAPPENS, IF YOU ARE BEING, WE WILL FIND SOME MONEY TO DO IT. WE WILL PUT MECHANISMS IN PLACE SO WE CAN RECOVER THAT. WE WILL SEE HOW MUCH THAT WE ACTUALLY RECOVER. THAT SHOULD BE ON US, NOT SOMEONE WHO IS ALREADY LIVING IN DEEP POVERTY TO HAVE TO WAIT FOR A COURT SYSTEM TO PRODUCE SOMETHING WHEN THEY DON’T HAVE ATTORNEYS. SO THAT WOULD BE ANOTHER SUGGESTION FOR AMENDMENTS TO HOW THAT MIGHT WORK. >>WHAT I HEAR IS THAT THERE IS GENERAL AGREEMENT? THIS IS A PROBLEM? THERE IS FINE TUNING TO BE DONE. ON THIS NARROW SLICE. IT MAY BE SOME OPPORTUNITIES WITH A LONGER-TERM CONVERSATION ABOUT, THE OTHER 750 CERTIFICATION INSPECTION PROGRAMS. IT WOULD BE AN INTERESTING CONVERSATION TO HAVE. >>SO JUST IN ONE OF THOSE STATEMENTS. IT WOULD BE REALLY HELPFUL FOR YOU TO SAY THIS IS A PROBLEM. WE KNOW RENTER A HAS 12 OF THESE IN THE FIELD. WHAT I HAVE HEARD TODAY THAT WE THINK IT IS 2-5. PEOPLE. US ON ARTICLE THAT SAID ONE OF THEM IS OUT OF THE BUSINESS. ONE HAS LEFT. ONE IS TOO MANY. BUT I ALSO DON’T KNOW THAT WE IN THE WHOLE CITY INFRASTRUCTURE NEED TO BE SPENDING A BIG CHUNK OF OUR RESOURCES ON A PROBLEM IF IT IS JUST A HANDFUL. IF IN FACT THERE IS AN ACTOR TWO, THAT WE KNOW IS OUT THERE, I’M SURE WE CAN INVESTIGATE AND TRACK IT DOWN. AND SEE WHO IS SELLING THESE AND FIGURED OUT. LET’S FIGURE OUT THE BEST WAY TO GET THEM OUT OF THE BUSINESS WITHOUT DAMAGING THE PEOPLE IN THERE. SOME EVIDENCE WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL. >>WE HAVE ANOTHER CONVERSATION SCHEDULED ON AUGUST 14. YOU HAVE WRITTEN A GOOD MEMO ON THIS. WE CAN GO THREAT. WHAT I AM HEARING LOUD AND CLEAR FROM YOU IS WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE INFORMATION RATHER THAN SPENDING A LOT OF TIME ON LEGISLATION. IF WE ARE SPINNING OUR WHEELS, I WOULD MUCH RATHER BE TARGETING WHAT WE WILL DO. HOW MANY PEOPLE INVOLVED. I LIKE WHAT YOU ARE SUGGESTING ABOUT HAVING THE CITY BEING ABLE TO HELP FIND OTHER SPACES FOR PEOPLE. GO AFTER IF THERE IS REAL RESTITUTION FOR THE CITY TO BE ABLE TO DO THIS. I COMPLETELY CONCUR WITH YOU. SOMEBODY WHO HAS NO RESOURCES OR WHO MAY BE IS STRUGGLING WITH MENTAL HEALTH, BEHAVIORAL HEALTH PROBLEMS, THEY WILL NOT HAVE THE WHEREWITHAL TO RUN TO THE LEGAL SYSTEM TO RECOVER THAT. I HOPE WE CAN TAKE ANOTHER CONVERSATION ON THIS AND REALLY, I WANT TO GET BACK TO THE IDEA OF BEING A TEAM HERE. THAT IS NOT SEVENTH FLOOR VERSUS SECOND FLOOR. I WANT US TO BE ABLE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO SOLVE. I KNOW BASED UPON CONVERSATIONS WITH COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUEDA, WE NEED TO ADD MORE PLACES FOR PEOPLE TO GO. I DON’T WANT TO SAY WE ARE TAKING THIS HORRIBLE THING AND THE STORY. GOOD LUCK TO, MR. TENANT. WE REALLY HAVE TO FIND A SOLUTION TO THAT NEXT STEP AS WELL. BUT I AM WILLING TO WITH YOU ON THAT. I HOPE THAT COUNCILMEMBER O’BRIEN, YOU ARE WILLING AS WELL. I KNOW JEFF, YOU HAVE WRITTEN A GREAT MEMO. WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER CONVERSATION WITH THIS IN MY COMMITTEE NEXT WEDNESDAY. I WOULD LIKE TO PICK THAT UP WITH OUT PEOPLE SAYING THIS IS GARBAGE. LET’S SAY, HOW DO WE CARE FOR THE PEOPLE? TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM AS A COLLECTIVE EFFORT? THAT WOULD BE MY PROPOSAL. OKAY. ANYTHING ELSE? REALLY, MANY THANKS FOR COMING TOGETHER AROUND THIS. I JUST KEEP FEELING LIKE WE ARE CHIPPING AWAY. IF WE HAD TONS OF RESOURCES, UNFETTERED, I THINK WE COULD MAKE SOME FASTER PROGRESS BUT JUST GETTING PEOPLE INSIDE IS IMPORTANT TO ME. >>CAN I SAY ONE LAST THING? I REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS. YOU PROBABLY SENSED FRUSTRATION FOR ME. >>WE DIDN’T, MIKE. >>I WANT TO JUST SAY THAT WE HAVE ALL STATED A COUPLE TIMES, THE CHALLENGE WE ARE FACING IS A REALLY HARD ONE. I DON’T QUESTION, I AM TRYING NOT TO QUESTION THE MOTIVES. I PUSH IT THE CLARIFICATION. THANK YOU FOR HAVING THAT HAPPEN. AND YOU KNOW, WE ARE DOING SOME AMAZING WORK. THE MAYOR ADDED I’VE HUNDRED NEW SHELTER UNITS. WE WILL OPEN CLOSE TO 1000 NEW UNITS OF AFFORDABLE HOUSING, THREE HEAVEN FOUR TIMES AS MUCH AS WE DID THREE OR FOUR YEARS AGO. THAT SEEMS TO BE AN ONGOING THING. YOU’RE GETTING MORE BECAUSE OF THAT. ALL THE THINGS ARE GOOD AND YET WE STILL HAVE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ENTERING HOMELESSNESS EVERY YEAR BECAUSE OF FAILED SYSTEM IS NOT WORKING. THE WHOLE ECONOMIC SYSTEM. WE ARE ALL TRYING TO DO GOOD WORK. I WOULD ARGUE WE ARE DOING AMAZING WORK. IT LOOKS LIKE WE WILL SIT HERE AND ARGUE ABOUT THE FAILURES. I THINK IT IS MORE JUST SHARED FRUSTRATON. IN A CITY WITH SO MANY RESOURCES, NOT JUST THE ENTITY BUT EVERYONE HERE. THAT WE CAN’T FIGURE OUT HOW TO HOW IS EVERYONE. IT IS MADDENING. WE ALL SHARE THAT. THANK YOU. >>YOU. ANYTHING ELSE? YOU WANT TO WRAP IT UP? >>I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO ADD. >>THANK YOU. I APPRECIATE THIS. GOOD FIRST CONVERSATION. GOOD PUTTING THINGS ON THE TABLE. LET’S HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE PROBLEM IS WE ARE TRYING TO SOLVE. VERY GOOD. THANK YOU FOR THAT. THANK YOU FOR HAVING AN IDT. I AM VERY RESPECT FOR THAT ALL OF YOU WERE TALKING TOGETHER. THIS IS OUR LAST AGENDA ITEM. WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER MEETING AS I SAID NEXT WEDNESDAY. BUT I ALSO WANT TO KNOWLEDGE COUNSEL CENTRAL STAFF AND THE GREAT WORK ON BUDGET MOVING ABOUT THROUGH TODAY. IT WAS SUPER. THANK YOU ALLISON FOR KEEPING US ON TRACK. GETTING ME ORGANIZE. WITH THAT, WE ARE ADJOURNED.
