Seattle City Council Select Budget Committee 10/30/19 Session I

Seattle City Council Select Budget Committee 10/30/19 Session I


>>GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY. THANK YOU, FOR IT BEING HERE. I AM SALLY BAGSHAW. THIS IS OUR BUDGET COMMITTEE AND THIS IS WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2019. OUR MEETING WILL COME TO ORDER. IT IS 9:35 AM AND I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU, TO TRAN 20 AND COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. THANK YOU, FOR BEING HERE. I KNOW MY OTHER COLLEAGUES, WHEN THEY DO COME IN, I AM GOING TO HAVE TO EXERT THE SAME THING. WE WILL HAVE ROUGHLY ONE MINUTE FOR CENTRAL STAFF TO INTRODUCE THE ITEMS THAT WE WILL BE HEARING TODAY AND THEN WE WILL BE TALKING VERY BRIEFLY ABOUT WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT TO US AND THEN MOVE ON BECAUSE WE HAVE OVER 160 ITEMS THAT WE WILL BE LOOKING AT TODAY. SO, WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TODAY. THIS HAS BEEN KNOWN AS GREEN SHEETS. WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO INCREASE OR DECREASE FUNDING FOR A DEPARTMENT OR PROGRAM AND THAT WOULD COME IN THE FORM OF PROVISOS TO REVISE A CAPITAL PROJECT PLANNED TO CREATE OR ELIMINATE CITY EMPLOYMENT POSITIONS. THAT IS NEVER A GOOD THING OR ONE THAT ANYBODY TAKES LIGHTLY. WE CAN ALSO ESTABLISH STATEMENTS OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT THAT REQUEST A SPECIFIC REPORT OR OTHER BUDGET RELATED ORDINANCES. MANY OF YOU WILL BE CIRCLING BACK AND TALKING WITH EACH COUNCIL MEMBER AGAIN ABOUT PRIORITIES FOR BUDGET. ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, OUR FIRST BALANCING PACKAGE WILL BE PRESENTED BACK TO YOU AND THAT MEANS I AM WORKING ALL WEEKEND WITH COUNSEL CENTRAL STAFF AND COLLEAGUES, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I WANT TO BE CLEAR ON AT THIS POINT, FROM WHAT I AM HEARING FROM YOU IS A REAL INTEREST IN FUNDING ISSUES THAT WILL HELP US RESOLVE HOMELESSNESS TO PROVIDE MORE HOUSING AND BETTER HYGIENE FACILITIES. SO I AM THINKING OF THAT AS AN OVERARCHING UMBRELLA. TO THINK ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY WE COULD POSSIBLY HAVE. AND OTHER ITEMS OF IMPORTANCE TO YOU WITHIN THAT UMBRELLA. AND THEN IF THERE IS SOMETHING OUTSIDE THAT YOU FEEL LIKE THIS IS REALLY CRITICAL TO HELP PROMOTE THE WORK WE ARE DOING, FOR YOU TO BE ABLE TO ARTICULATE WHAT THAT IS. WE ARE GOING TO LOUVRE MOVE FORWARD AND AFTER EACH ITEM IS ADDRESSED OR INTRODUCED BY COUNSEL CENTRAL STAFF I WILL BEG YOU TO PLEASE TRY TO KEEP IT TO ABOUT 30 SECONDS OR ONE MINUTE AS TO WHY WE NEED TO KEEP SO WE CAN KEEP MOVING FORWARD. SO, COUNSEL CENTRAL STAFF, LISA, WILL YOU BE PLANNING? >>DO YOU WANT ME TO SPEAK TO THE ISSUE OF SPONSORSHIP? >>PLEASE DO. >>LAST YEAR, AFTER EACH EACH COUNCIL MEMBER — YOU WOULD ASK COUNCIL MEMBERS IF THEY WANTED TO COSPONSOR. >>WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO ASK IS THAT WE RECOGNIZE, THAT I AM TRYING TO DO IS GET A SENSE OF SUPPORT FOR AN ITEM. AND AS I SAID, WE KNOW THAT THERE IS A LOT OF ENTHUSIASM AROUND FUNDING LEAD AND OTHER ALTERNATIVES TO THE JAIL AND AT THE SAME TIME, MAKING SURE THAT WE HAVE THE EXTRA HOUSING THAT WE NEED AND FUNDING OPTIONS FOR PEOPLE THAT HAVE HOUSING NOW AND MAYBE STRUGGLING. SO, IF YOU RAISE HER HAND, FOR EVERY SINGLE ITEM, IT IS NOT GOING TO HELP ME PRIORITIZE. SO WHAT I WOULD LIKE YOU TO BE ABLE TO DO IS SAY THAT THIS IS IMPORTANT AND RAISE YOUR HAND OR, THIS MIGHT BE OF TIER 2 AND PARENTS. SO, IF WE CAN DO THAT, AND I WILL ASK FOR A TIER 1 AND A TIER 2 IF IT GETS TO BECOME PROBLEMATIC. SO WHAT ARE YOU MAKING A FACE AT ME FOR? JUST BECAUSE YOU KNOW IT’S NOT GOING TO WORK? >>I WAS MAKING A FACE AT HER. >>OKAY. I UNDERSTAND. >>IT’S ALL MY FAULT. >>OKAY. SO, THAT KIND OF CHANGES THINGS UP. SO, SINCE I AM FIRST, — >>EVERYBODY LOVES COYOTE CENTRAL. YOU ARE GOING TO BE GREAT. SO ELSEWHERE, AT THE TABLE, DO YOU WANT TO GET STARTED LISA? HOW DO YOU WANT TO DO THIS? >>OKAY. >>AASHA IS GOING TO START US OFF. >> THE COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION CBA ARTS-1-A-1 WOULD ADD $50,000 IN FUNDING FOR THE EXPANSION OF COYOTE CENTRAL TO THE LAKE CITY NEIGHBORHOOD AND THIS IS SPONSORED BY COUNCIL MEMBER JUAREZ. >>THANK YOU, FOR LETTING ME GO FIRST. I HAVE NEVER BEEN FIRST, EVER. SO I APPRECIATE THAT. AND KEEPING WITH THE REQUEST OF THE CHAIR, WHAT I WANT TO SHARE ABOUT THIS IS WE HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH COYOTE CENTRAL FOR TWO YEARS AND WE ARE HAPPY TO SAY THEY ARE MOVING NORTH. THEY PURCHASED A BUILDING IN LAKE CITY. THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING SUCCESSFULLY IN THE CENTRAL DISTRICT FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND WE PLAN TO REPLICATE THAT WITH THEM. I HAVE ALSO HANDED OUT A LETTER TO YOU ON THE ORCHID COLORED PIECE OF PAPER. I KNOW I DON’T HAVE A LOT OF TIME BUT WE ARE SO ECSTATIC THAT COYOTE CENTRAL HAS COME UP TO THE NORTH AND THEY HAVE SOME OF THE BEST HIGH-QUALITY PROGRAMS AND CAN SERVE 1300 YOUTH IN THE NORTH AND ALONE. EQUITY IS A CORE VALUE AND IT IS JUST SO EVIDENT IN THEIR MATERIAL AND THEIR PROGRAMS AND IN THEIR SUCCESS BETWEEN 42-61% OF THE PARTICIPANTS AT ANY GIVEN PROGRAM IDENTIFY IS USE OF COLOR. WHAT I AM REALLY IMPRESSED WITH, AND I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH THEIR BOARD IS THEIR COMMITMENT TO EQUITY, INCLUSION AND RESPECT. SO FAR, THE COST OF THE PROGRAM TO MOVE NORTH AND PURCHASE THE BUILDING IS $2.4 MILLION. THEY HAVE RAISED $687,000 TOWARDS THEIR CAPITAL PROGRAMMING GOALS. THIS IS A ONE-TIME ASK OF $50,000. AND LET ME JUST AND WITH THIS. COYOTE CENTRAL IS MOVING TO COYOTE NORTH AND WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT THEM AND THEIR PROGRAMMING IS THAT IT IS LITTLE OR NO COST FOR THEIR FAMILIES AND MONEY IS NEVER A BARRIER. >>I WILL SUPPORT THIS. HOW ARE YOU GOING TO MOVE FORWARD WITH ASKING FOR RAISES AND ALL THAT? >>EITHER I CAN OR YOU ARE WELCOME TO, OBVIOUSLY. AS MEMBERS IF THEY WOULD LIKE TO RAISE THEIR HAND AND HOLD THEIR HEAD UP FOR JUST A MINUTE IF THEY WOULD LIKE TO COSPONSOR. >>I WOULD LIKE TO ASK FOR YOUR HELP ON THIS BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE AS. BUT I WILL START OFF BY, AND COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ, THANK YOU, FOR JOINING US. THE FOLKS AT THE TABLE ARE GOING TO TRY TO GIVE US A FRAMEWORK ABOUT WHAT THE ISSUE IS. THEN I AM GOING TO ASK THE SPONSORING MEMBER APPEARED TO TRY TO KEEP IT 30 SECONDS ABOUT WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT. AND, THEN WE WILL ASK FOR A SHOW OF HANDS IF YOU WANT TO SUPPORT IT. BUT I AM REALLY TRYING TO SAY, ET’S TO A ‘T’ OR ONE OR EIGHT TIERED 2. BABY IF YOU THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA BENETTI TIER 1, TIER 1, ITEM NUMBER ONE, COUNCIL MEMBER JUAREZ, ALL OF THOSE THAT WOULD LIKE TO JOIN AS A COSPONSOR, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>THANK YOU. >>I SHOULD GET POINTS FOR BEING FAST. YES, COUNCIL MEMBER HARRELL, PUT YOUR HAND UP. >> THANK YOU. >>GREAT. PLEASE MOVE ON TO ITEM NUMBER 2.>>THIS IS CBA ARTS-3-A-1 AND IT WOULD ADD $25,000 OF ADMISSIONS TAX TO ARTS FOR ACCESS TO ONLINE HISTORICAL RESOURCES AND THIS IS SPONSORED BY COUNCIL MEMBER HARRELL. >>PUT THE CLOCK ON ME AND I WILL SHOW YOU WHAT 30 SECONDS LOOKS LIKE. WE DID THIS LAST YEAR AND IT WAS SO SUCCESSFUL. I AM ASKING THAT WE MAKE A MODEST INVESTMENT TO THE STEERING COMMITMENT AND ACTION PARTICULARLY FOR THE AFRICAN- AMERICAN COMMUNITY AND THOSE DEALING WITH DISPLACEMENT. WE DID THIS LAST YEAR AND LAST YEAR WE PARTNERED WITH THE MARTIN LUTHER KING ORGANIZING COMMITTEE AND WE HAD AN INCREDIBLE CELEBRATION FOR THE MLK EVENTS. THEY HAVE A SUSTAINABLE PROGRAM THAT IS CALLED TURNING COMMITMENT INTO ACTION. IT IS THE ISSUE OF DISPLACEMENT AND JUSTIFICATION ISSUES IN THAT DISTRICT. >>THANK YOU, WELL DONE. ALL THOSE THAT WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT COUNCIL MEMBER HARRELL, RAISE YOUR HAND. ALL RIGHT. >>HOW ARE WE DOING SO FAR, COUNCIL MEMBER BAGSHAW. >>ALL RIGHT. JUST A BIT LONGER. >>OKAY. >>I AM 2 FOR 2 RIGHT NOW. >>WHERE IS THE REQUEST FOR HISTORY LINK? WHY DID WE WHERE DO WE PUT IT? IT IS ALSO UNDER ARTS? >>IT IS THE NEXT ONE COMING UP. >>OKAY. THAT WOULD BE ME, WHAT NICK? >>YES. SO, WE ARE LOOKING AT CBA ARTS- 3-A-1 AND THEY ARE REQUESTING $25,000 OF ADMISSIONS TAX TO ARTS FOR ACCESS TO ONLINE HISTORICAL RESOURCES . THIS IS SPONSORED BY COUNCIL MEMBER BAGSHAW. >> THIS IS FOR SUSTAINABLE WORK THAT IS BEING DONE. THEY DID A BOOK FOR 150 YEARS IN SEATTLE. THEY DO SIMILAR PROJECTS YEAR ROUND. AS FAR AS I KNOW THEY ARE UNIQUE AND NOBODY DOES WHAT THEY ARE DOING. >>ALL THOSE THAT WANT TO JOIN ME, $25,000 FOR HISTORY LINK, PLEASE VOTE. >>THANK YOU, VERY MUCH. >>WE WILL MOVE INTO THE OFFICE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS. THIS IS COUNCIL BUDGET ACTIONS OCR-1-A-1. $25,000 TO THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE’S DAY FOUNDATION AND IT IS SPONSORED BY COUNCIL MEMBER SAWANT. >>AASHA, WILL YOU DESCRIBE IT. >>EVERY YEAR, THE CITY PUTS ON INDIGENOUS PEOPLE’S DAY. OCR IS ASKING OTHER PEOPLE TO GET FUNDING. THEY SPEND TIME TRYING TO GET FUNDING TOGETHER SO THAT THEY CAN DO THE CELEBRATION ON A YEARLY BASIS. THIS FUNDING WOULD ALLOW THEM TO FORGO ALL OF THAT EXTRA EFFORT TO GET TO OTHER DEPARTMENTS AND TO SCRAPE TOGETHER FUNDING AND GIVE THEM ONGOING FUNDING TO BE ABLE TO FUND THOSE CELEBRATIONS. >>CAN I ASK YOU A QUESTION? THE NEXT THREE ITEMS ARE SIMILAR. THOSE ARE, $16,000 FOR HUMAN RIGHTS DAY AT $16,000. AND OCR TO FUND THE MARTIN LUTHER KING UNITY DAY? ARE THOSE SCALABLE? CAN THOSE ALL THE 16,000? OR CAN YOU TELL ME WHY DO THOSE NUMBERS DIFFER? >>MY ASSUMPTION IS THAT THEY WOULD ABSOLUTELY BE SCALABLE. I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS THE AMOUNT THAT COUNCILMEMBERS HAVE REQUESTED SO THAT WE CAN HAVE A DISCUSSION ABOUT HOW MUCH OF EACH OF THOSE WOULD BE APPROPRIATE FOR YOUR BALANCING PACKAGE. >>COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD . >>THESE THREE EVENTS HAVE BEEN CITYWIDE EVENTS GOING ON FOR SEVERAL YEARS. I AM AT A LOSS AS TO WHY THE DEPARTMENTS NEED TO COME TO US EVERY BUDGET YEAR TO GET FUNDING TO PUT ON WHAT OUR CITYWIDE EVENTS. WHY HAVE THEY NOT BEEN WRAPPED INTO THE CITY BUDGET? IN RECOGNITION THAT THESE ARE EVENTS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO THE ENTIRE CITY AND WE ALL SUPPORT THEM? >>THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION. DO YOU HAVE ANSWERS? >>I AM NOT SURE WHY THIS HAS NOT BEEN WRAPPED INTO EXISTING BUDGETS. THE INFORMATION I DO HAVE IS THAT THEY ARE TASKED TO TO THE OFFICE OF CIVIL RIGHTS AND THE OFFICE COMES TO COUNCILMEMBERS AND OTHER DEPARTMENTS EVERY YEAR TO GET TOGETHER THE FUNDING FOR THIS. AND SO, FOR EXAMPLE, LAST YEAR, THE ADS, BECAUSE THERE WAS ONLY ONE TIME FUNDING, THAT IS ALL THEY HAD. IF THESE WERE ONGOING FUNDING THEN THEY WOULD HAVE DEDICATED RESOURCES. IT IS NOT CLEAR IF THEY WOULD NEED TO ASK FURTHER. BUT THIS WOULD GIVE THEM AT LEAST A ANIMAL LEVEL OF DEDICATED FUNDING. >>I WOULD LIKE TO RESPOND TO THAT. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MAY NOT BE AS TRANSPARENT ON MANY OF THESE EVENTS, PARTICULARLY THE ONES COMING UP, PARTICULARLY, INDIGENOUS DAYS, WHAT I HAVE HAD TO DO OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS IS CALLED DEPARTMENT HEADS, WORK WITH THE BUDGET OFFICE AND GET MONEY TRANSFERRED OVER AND ASKING THEM EVERY TIME. IT IS A LOT OF WORK AND RESOURCES TO PIECEMEAL THIS TOGETHER. THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING AND I THINK THAT OCR IS REALLY TAXING THEIR STAFF TO, BEG, BORROW AND SKIP TO PUT THESE EVENTS TOGETHER. >>I WAS GOING TO MAKE A SIMILAR COMMENT THAT, I AM SURE THAT THIS IS TRUE IN GENERAL, UNFORTUNATELY. I CAN TELL YOU, JUST FROM HAVING INTERACTED IN THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE STAY QUESTION, FROM THE VERY BEGINNING IT HAS BEEN A STRUGGLE TO HAVE IT FUNDED. EVERY YEAR, NOT ONLY THE STAFF BUT THE COMMUNITY MEMBERS THEY HAVE BEEN AT THE TABLE EVERY YEAR AND EVERY YEAR WE MOUNT THE SAME ARGUMENT ABOUT FUNDING IT AND EVERY YEAR WE HAVE THIS PROBLEM. AND THAT IS WHY, WE WANT THIS TO BE A DEDICATED FUNDING AND THE PROVISO BASICALLY SAYS THAT, THIS GOES ALONG WITH WHAT YOU ARE SAYING COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. THE CITY AGREES THAT THESE ARE CITYWIDE CELEBRATIONS AND THEY ARE IMPORTANT TO US. I WOULD ALSO ADD THAT EVERY YEAR WE HAVE THE DISCUSSION AND IT IS A REAL STRUGGLE TO GET IT THROUGH. IT IS ALWAYS NICKEL AND DIME. LIKE, IS THIS SALMON DINNER GOING TO BE FUNDED OR NOT? IT IS LITTLE THINGS. IT SHOULD NOT BE THIS WAY. IT SHOULD JUST BE FUNDED IT IS NOT A BIG AMOUNT OF MONEY. >>CAN WE VOTE ON ALL THREE OF THESE SIMULTANEOUSLY? >>IT WOULD BE EASIER FOR YOUR STUFF IF YOU COULD DO ONE AT A TIME. >>WE WANT TO MAKE IT EASY ON YOU. NUMBER 4 IS $25,000 TO OCR TO FUND INDIGENOUS PEOPLE’S DAY CELEBRATIONS. THOSE IN FAVOR OF THAT, RAISE YOUR HAND PLEASE. GREAT. DO YOU HAVE EVERYBODY? >>YES. THANK YOU. AND THE NEXT, NUMBER 5 IS $16,000 GF TO OCR FOR HUMAN RIGHTS DAY. THOSE IN FAVOR? >>THANK YOU. >>AND THE THIRD IS $25,000 GF TO OCR TO FUND THE CITY’S MLK UNITY DAY . >>THANK YOU. >>OKAY. NUMBER 7 IS $252,876 GF TO OCR FOR 2.0 FTE POSITIONS TO ADDRESS CAPACITY ISSUES TO ADDRESS CAPACITY ISSUES. >>THIS IS SPONSORED BY COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>SO , THE OFFICE OF CIVIL RIGHTS HAS A BACKLOG OF 61 CASES AND IS ANTICIPATING INCREASED COMPLAINTS. THE DEPARTMENT HAS IMPLEMENTED ADMINISTRATIVE CHANGES TO RESPOND TO THE BACKLOG INCLUDING TERMINATING A HUD CONTRACT TO DE-PRIORITIZE CASES THAT WERE FILED WITH THE CITY AND WE HAVE PROPOSED A PLAN TO REDUCE THE ADMINISTRATIVE IMPACT. WITH THE PASSAGE OF NEW LAWS, AND CLOSE CAPTIONING ORDINANCES, OCR ANTICIPATES A 10% INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF COMPLAINTS AND THESE DEPOSITIONS ARE INTENDED TO MITIGATE THAT THROUGH EDUCATION AND CREATING ADDED CAPACITY BY IMPLEMENTING THE RESTORATIVE RESOLUTION MODEL IS A NEW TOOL TO RESOLVE CASES SO ALL CASES DON’T NEED TO BE TREATED AS INVESTIGATIONS AND LITIGATIONS. THE RESTORATIVE RESOLUTION MODEL IS A MEDIATION MODEL TO RESOLVE CIVIL RIGHTS CASES. PER, A RECENT INQUIRY FROM MY OFFICE, AND INCOMING CONSIDERATION WOULD BE TO MAKE THESE FULL-TIME POSITIONS, THE INCREASED INCREASED APPROPRIATION TO DO SO. AND THAT WOULD BE AS STATED HERE. ABOUT $237,000. PARTIALLY FOR THE RESTORATIVE RESOLUTIONS MODEL MEDIATOR AND THE OTHER FOR THE COMMUNITY OUTREACH POSITION. THE REASON WHY THIS IS LINKED TO TWO INVESTIGATIONS IS THAT, CURRENTLY, BECAUSE SOC ARE HAS NO DEDICATED STAFF, THEY DO POLICY WORK AND OUTREACH AND EDUCATION. THIS LEADS TO THE BACKLOG THAT I MENTIONED EARLIER. LAST YEAR THIS COUNSEL REQUESTED THAT THE OFFICE OF CIVIL RIGHTS DO A RACE AND EQUITY TOOLKIT REGARDING THE STRUCTURE OF THE OFFICE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS AND TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS TO US ABOUT HOW TO ADDRESS SOME OF THE STRUCTURAL ISSUES AND ONE OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS THAT CAME OUT OF THAT TO BEGIN TO FUND EDUCATION FOR THIS OFFICE LIKE WE DO FOR LABOR STANDARDS. WE ROBUSTLY FUND THESE BUT WE NEED TO DO THAT FOR THE OFFICE FOR CIVIL RIGHTS AS PART OF THE FOCUS GROUPS. WHAT THEY LEARNED IN FOCUSED GROUPS IS THAT MANY PEOPLE IN THIS CITY, PARTICULARLY THOSE IN COLOR COMMUNITIES OF COLOR ARE ARE UNAWARE OF CIVIL RIGHTS LAWS. THE ADDED FUNDING TO DO MORE OUTREACH AND EDUCATION WILL HELP ADDRESS THAT. >>VERY GOOD. THANK YOU. SO, ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO ADD? >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING NUMBER SEVEN, $252,876 GF TO OCR FOR 2.0 FTE POSITIONS TO ADDRESS CAPACITY ISSUES , PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. BUT YOUR CALL. >>THE NEXT ITEM IS WHY I THINK WE ACTUALLY HAVE AN AUDIENCE TODAY. THIS IS OUR LAW DEPARTMENT AND THERE ARE TWO REQUEST MONTHS FOR PARALEGALS. CAN YOU READ THESE IN AASHA. >>COUNCIL BUDGET ACTIONS LAW-1- A-1 WOULD ADD $113,077 GF AND 1.0 FULL TIME EQUIVELANT PARALEGAL POSITION TO LAW FOR A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TECHNOLOGY EXPERT . AND THIS IS SPONSORED BY COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO. >>THIS REQUEST CAME FROM ANY DISCUSSIONS WITH ORGANIZATIONS AND APARTMENTS THAT WORK WITH VICTIMS. IT WOULD RESPOND TO THE INCREASED USE OF TECHNOLOGY BY ABUSERS TO HARASS AND IT ABUSE SURVIVORS. THE DV UNIT RECEIVES FUNDING EVERY YEAR, BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE THE TIME AND RESOURCES TO DEAL WITH TECHNOLOGY-BASED ABUSE. DEDICATING A POSITION TO PROVIDING THIS EXPERTISE AND WORKING WITH SURVIVORS WOULD INCREASE CAPACITY AND TAKE A STEP TOWARDS MODERNIZING CITY PROCESSES. >>ANY QUESTIONS ON THIS? >>I HAVE ONE QUESTION. IS THE $113,000, IS THAT THE COST OF A PARALEGAL AND THEN INSURANCE, VACATION AND EVERYTHING ELSE? >>THAT DOES INCLUDE THE ONGOING COST FOR THE POSITION. IT IS ABOUT $110,000 IN ADDITION TO $3000 FOR EQUIPMENT AND TRAINING. >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING ITEM NUMBER EIGHT, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>OKAY. >>WE ARE LOOKING NOW AT CBA LAW-2-A-1 AND THAT IS TO ADD $113,077 GF TO LAW FOR 1.0 FTE PARALEGAL POSITION TO BE ATRAUMA INFORMED ADVOCATE FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE FIREARM ENFORCEMENT. THAT IS SPONSORED BY COUNCIL MEMBER BAGSHAW. >>THIS UNIT HAD SUCCESS MOVING HUNDREDS OF FIREARMS LAST YEAR FROM DANGEROUS SITUATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS IN PARTICULAR, INCLUDIN THOSE THAT WERE MAKING THREATS OF SUICIDE IN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SITUATIONS AND OR, POTENTIAL DOMESTIC TERRORIST SITUATIONS. A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO I SHARED A NEW STORY WITH YOU ALL ABOUT HOW THE UNIT WAS INTEGRAL IN REMOVING SEVERAL MILLIS MILITARY STYLE RIFLES FROM A NEO-NAZI. I AM REALLY PROUD THAT THIS UNIT IS DOING THIS WORK. IT IS INNOVATIVE, REGIONAL AND IS LITERALLY SAVING LIVES IN THE CITY AND ACROSS THE REGION. I AM REALLY PROUD TO BE PUSHING THIS FORWARD WITH THE PROPOSED EXPANSION TO THIS UNIT, WHICH THIS PARALEGAL POSITION WOULD BE DEDICATED TO AND, I AM DOING SO WITH THE SUPPORT AND EXPANSION OF FRIENDS IN THE COMMUNITY INCLUDING THE ALLIANCE FOR GUN RESPONSIBILITY AND I HOPE THAT FOLKS WILL SUPPORT THIS POTENTIAL ACT. >>I WILL BE SUPPORTING THIS BUT I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE CHRIS ANDERSON. HE WORKED ON THIS WITH ME THREE YEARS AGO AND I KNOW YOU HAVE GOTTEN NATIONAL RECOGNITION FOR THE WORK THAT YOUR TEAM IS DOING. ALL THOSE WHO ARE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING RECOMMENDATIONS BY COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ ON NUMBER NINE, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. GREAT. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU, >>AND NOW, OFFICE OF HEARING EXAMINER, ADD $23,000 FOR OFFICE OF HEARING EXAMINER IMPROVEMENTS . WHO IS TAKING THIS ONE? >>WE HAVE ONE COUNSEL BUDGET ACTION FROM COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO. IT IS TO ADD $23,000 FOR OFFICE OF HEARING EXAMINER IMPROVEMENTS AND THAT IS FOR PORTABLE RECORDING EQUIPMENT AND $15,000 OF IT IS ONGOING GENERAL FUNDING TO PAY FOR THE PARTICIPATION OF A PLANNER IN THE MEDIATION PROCESS. >>VERY GOOD. SLIS. >> THIS WAS REQUESTED IN LETTER TO THE COUNCIL EARLIER THIS MONTH. IT WOULD MAKE IMPROVEMENTS AND 15,000 OF ONGOING FUNDING WOULD RESTORE A PILOT PROGRAM THAT ALLOWS CITY PLANNERS TO PARTICIPATE IN MEDIATION PROCEEDINGS WITHOUT BEARING THOSE COSTS. IT WOULD MAKE MEDIATION MORE ACCESSIBLE. IT WOULD ALLOW CASES TO BE DEALT WITH OUTSIDE OF THE CASES. IT WILL PROVIDE HEARING EQUIPMENT IT WOULD ALLOW THEM TO SET UP EQUIPMENT SO THEY CAN HOLD HEARINGS IN THE COMMUNITY. AS AN EXAMPLE, FOR MY UNDERSTANDING, THE LAW AND APPEAL PROCESS AND HEARINGS, COULD NOT COULD HAVE BEEN MOVED FORWARD MONTHS SOONER RATHER THAN HAVING TO WAIT MONTHS FOR HEARINGS TO CONCLUDE. >>VERY GOOD. >>ALL THOSE WANTING TO SUPPORT THE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE OFFICE OF HEARING EXAMINER, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>THANK YOU. >>NOW, NEXT ITEM IS FROM THE OFFICE OF IMMIGRANT AND REFUGEE AFFAIRS. >>AND WE HAVE THREE COUNSEL BUDGET ACTIONS FOR THIS. THE FIRST IS, AN AD OF $750,000 TO THE ONE-TIME GENERAL FUND FOR A RAPID RESPONSE FUND. THAT IS SPONSORED BY COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>THANK YOU. THIS, I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SPEAK ABOUT THIS IN THE PAST. I THINK WE WERE ALL LISTENING WITH A KEEN AND COMPASSIONATE EAR WHEN THE OFFICE OF IMMIGRANT AND REFUGEE AFFAIRS WAS GIVING THEIR BUDGET OVERVIEW IN TERMS OF THEIR BUDGET. THIS PARTICULAR AD WOULD BE A ONE TIME ADD TO ESTABLISH WHAT WE ARE REFERRING TO AS A RESILIENT FUND. IT WOULD BE ADMINISTERED BY THE OFFICE OF IMMIGRANT AND REFUGEE AFFAIRS AND WOULD EFFECTIVELY REESTABLISH A RAPID RESPONSE FUNDING STREAM THAT WOULD ALLOW PEOPLE TO, OR COMMUNITY-BASED ORGANIZATIONS TO BE ABLE TO TAP INTO THESE DOLLARS TO BE ABLE TO DO REALLY CRITICALLY IMPORTANT OUTREACH AND EDUCATION IN THE FACE OF THE ONSLAUGHT OF POLICY CHANGES WE ARE SEEING AHEAD OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT WE ARE SEEING THAT DIRECTLY AND INDIRECTLY IMPACT THE IMMIGRANT AND REFUGEE POPULATION. WE HAVE BEEN TALKING TO OIRA AND THE COMMUNITY ABOUT THE NEED FOR THESE DOLLARS. WE FEEL THIS IS A CRITICAL USE OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS TO CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE RESILIENCY OF OUR IMMIGRANT REFUGEE COMMUNITY. >>THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING THE $750,000 ADD, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>OKAY. THANK YOU. >>THE NEXT COUNSEL BUDGET ACTION IS OIRA-1-A-1 FOR AN ADD $116,291 FOR 1.0 FULL TIME EQUIVELANT STRATEGIC ADVISOR 1 AS THEY RESPOND TO SOME OF THE FEDERAL POLICY CHANGES THAT ARE OCCURRING. >>COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>I THINK MISS GORE DID A GOOD JOB OF DESCRIBING THE TECHNICAL PIECES OF THIS. AS WE HEARD OIRA MAKE A PRESENTATION ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT BUDGET, WE ALL WALKED AWAY WITH THE SENSE THAT THEY ARE DOING MIGHTY WORK ON A SHOESTRING BUDGET AND I THINK THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THEM TO CAPRICE INCREASE THEIR CAPACITY IN A REASONABLE BUT MODEST WAY TO ALLOW THEM TO HAVE AN ADDITIONAL FTE TO BE ABLE TO DIG INTO AN FOCUS ON SUPPORTIG THE WORK THAT THE COMMUNITY ENVISIONS WOULD BE DONE THROUGH THE RAPID RESPONSE RESILIENCE FUND THAT I JUST SPOKE ABOUT A FEW MINUTES AGO. >>THANK YOU. THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING ITEM NUMBER 12, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>GREAT. SO, LET’S MOVE ON TO ITEM 13. >>OUR FINAL COUNSEL BUDGET ACTION IS AN ADD $50,000 GENERAL FUND FOR DEFERRED ACTION FOR CHILDHOOD ARRIVALS AND TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS APPLICATION SCHOLARSHIP FUNDING . IT IS BASED ON A PROGRAM THAT EXISTED IN 2018. >>GREAT. COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>THIS ONE IS NOT MIND. >>OKAY. COUNCILMEMBER JACOB. >>AS WE GET CLOSER TO THE SUPREME COURT RULING ON DACA, I BELIEVE THAT WE AS A CITY NEED TO BE TAKING PROACTIVE ACTION TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE PROTECTING UNDOCUMENTED PEOPLE AS BEST AS WE CAN. I THINK THAT, WE CAN PROVIDE GRANTS TO DACA APPLICANTS THAT WERE CHALLENGED BY THE APPLICATION FEE. THERE WAS NO FUNDING IN 2019 TO CONTINUE THIS WORK. THIS APPLICATION FEE CAN BE THE BIGGEST BARRIER TO RENEWING THE APPLICATION. 99.2% OF APPLICATIONS HAVE BEEN APPROVED BUT NOT EVERYONE CAN AFFORD THE APPLICATION FEE. NEXT YEAR ALONE, 150,000 APPLICANTS WILL NEED TO RESTORE THEIR STATUS BY JUNE. WE HAVE A PROXIMALLY 7300 DACA RECIPIENTS. THIS WOULD AT A $50,000 ONE- TIME FUNDING FOR OIRA TO INVEST IN THIS NEXT YEAR. I HAVE ALSO HEARD THAT MULTIPLE PEOPLE MAY BE INTERESTED IN SUPPORTING WHATEVER THIS PROVIDES. >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF ITEM NUMBER 13, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>THANK YOU. >>SO LET’S MOVE ON TO THE OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. IS THAT YOU? OKAY. >>THE FIRST ONE IS OPCD-1-A-1. IT IS A PROVISO OF $150,000 THAT IS GOING TO BE USED FOR COMPREHENSIVE PLAN OUTREACH AND ENGAGEMENT IN OPCD. AND THIS IS IN RESPONSE TO A LEGISLATIVE MEASURE PRIOR TO THE EXECUTIVE STARTING TO PRESENT THOSE FUNDS. AND WE WILL HEAR FROM COUNCIL MEMBER MOSQUEDA SPEAK AND FOR COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN. >>LET’S HEAR FROM COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN ACTUALLY. >> DON’T MESS THAT UP COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN. >>SO THE STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT REQUESTED THAT OPCD AND THE OFFICE OF CIVIL RIGHTS AND THE SEATTLE STRATEGY FOR ACCOMMODATING GROWTH IS PART OF PREPLANNING WORK IN ANTICIPATION OF THE UPCOMING MAJOR WORK TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN. THE OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT HAS REQUESTED $150,000 IN THE 2020 BUDGET TO PROVIDE FUNDING FOR THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN OUTREACH AND ENGAGEMENT. THIS PROVISO TO ENSURE ROBUST DASHED TO DEAL WITH THE HISTORICAL INEQUITIES THAT ARE DASHWOOD PROVISO THE $150,000 PENDING A PRESENTATION REGARDING THE SPENDING PLAN FROM THE DEPARTMENTS. >>WOULD LIKE TO ADD ANYTHING. >>THAT WAS GOOD. FAIRLY GOOD. IT WAS ADEQUATE. CAN WE, MAY I ADD SOMETHING TO IT. AS I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO REALLY UNDERSTAND THE CITY HAS DONE QUITE A BIT OF WORK AROUND RACIAL EQUITY ANALYSIS AS RELEASED IN THE STRATEGY FOR ACCOMMODATING ADDITIONAL GROWTH. THIS IS BEEN PART OF THE PREPLANNING WORK IN ANTICIPATION OF THE NEXT MAJOR UPDATE TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN. I THINK IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE BEING VERY INTENTIONAL AND DIRECTIVE AS WE DO A RACIAL EQUITY ANALYSIS AS A RESULT RELATES TO HOW WE ENVISION OUR CITY BEING ABLE TO GROW AND TO BE ABLE TO GROW IN A WAY WHERE WE CAN LITERALLY CREATE SPACE FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN HISTORICALLY EXCLUDED FROM CERTAIN AREAS IN OUR CITY, INCLUDING SINGLE-FAMILY HOME ZONES FROM BEING ABLE TO RESIDE THERE AND PROSPER IN THOSE SPACES. SO, THIS REALLY COMES FROM A PLACE OF TRYING TO DIG INTO AND CREATE AN ANALYTICAL FRAMEWORK TO BE ABLE TO ADDRESS SOME OF THE PAST DISCRIMINATORY POLICIES THAT HAVE DRIVEN MANY OF THE SEGREGATION PATTERNS WHEN WE ARE IN A SITUATION WHERE WE HAVE 75% OF LAND DOMINATED BY EXCLUSIONARY LAND THROUGHOUT THE CITY. I AM SUPPORTIVE OF THIS REQUEST BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT FOR THE BUDGET CHAIR AND COLLEAGUES AS YOU’D DELIBERATE WHETHER OR NOT YOU WANT TO RAISE YOUR HAND THIS MORNING BUT IT IS A REVENUE NEUTRAL PROPOSAL. IT IS A PROVISO OF $150,000 OF THE OPCD BUDGET. SO IT IS NOT ADDITIONAL. IT IS USING OUR BUDGET AUTHORITY AS A CITY TO RESERVE $150,000 OF THE EXISTING OPCD BUDGET, WHO IS AN ATTORNEY TO DO A LOT OF OUTREACH AND ENGAGEMENT FOR THE PURPOSE OF PLANNING. >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING THIS REVENUE NEUTRAL PROPOSAL, ITEM NUMBER 14, RAISE YOUR HAND.>>OKAY. >>LET’S MOVE ON TO THE $500,000 OPTION. >>THIS IS RELATED BUT DISTINCT. IT’S IS COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION OPCD-3-A-1. THIS WOULD BE A PROVISO $500,000 IN OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FOR THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT. IT WOULD NOT STOP THE DEPARTMENT FROM SPENDING MONEY BUT IT WOULD INSTEAD REQUIRE THAT THEY INCLUDE A COUPLE OF DIFERENT ALTERNATIVES IN THEIR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT INCLUDING ONE THAT CONSIDERS ZONING CHANGES IN SINGLE-FAMILY ZONES ACROSS THE CITY AND ANOTHER THAT LOOKS AT ADDITIONAL STRATEGIES TO REDUCE RACIAL EQUITY AND DISPLACEMENT EFFECTS OF GROWTH. >>GREAT. >>COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN. >>I AM JUST GOING TO TACK ON TO COMMENTS FROM COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ ON THE LAST ONE BECAUSE I THINK IT OVERLAPS. AGAIN, BOTH OF THESE ARE REVENUE NEUTRAL BUT IT IS JUST TRYING TO INSERT THE COUNCIL INTO THAT PROCESS TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE GETTING OPTIONS THAT WE WENT TO SEE. I WILL JUST READ HERE, THIS WOULD REQUIRE THAT THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE ADDRESSING OF ADDITIONAL HOUSING INCLUDING ROW HOUSES IN AREAS OF THE CITY CURRENTLY ZONED FOR SINGLE- FAMILY HOMES. SO, THIS MAKE SURE THAT AS WE MOVE FORWARD ON THAT PLAN THAT THERE WILL BE ACTIONS THAT INCLUDE TRYING TO LOOK AT AS ONE OPTION, TO EXPAND THE OPTIONS AND UNDO THE DISPROPORTIONAL BURDEN OF ADDITIONAL HOUSING THAT CERTAIN AREAS OF THE CITY HAVE PROVIDED COMPARED TO OTHER. >>I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION. I KNOW THAT THE BUDGET ACTION DESCRIPTION SAYS ANALYSIS OF GROWTH ALTERNATIVE ADDRESSING HOUSING CAPACITY INCLUDING DUPLEXES, TRIPLEX IS AND ROW HOUSES. CAN I MAKE A SUGGESTION OR IF IT IS ALREADY INCLUDED, WILL TOWNHOUSES BE INCLUDED IN THAT? WE HAVE BEEN MEETING WITH THE MASTER BUILDER FOLKS AND THEY HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT TOWNHOUSES AND THE ZONING AND I UNDERSTAND, COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN, YOU MAY HAVE SOMETHING TO SHARE ABOUT THIS. >>I CANNOT SPEAK FOR COUNCIL MEMBER MOSQUEDA, BUT FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, ABSOLUTELY. THEY ARE DISTINCT TYPOLOGIES, WE USE THEM INTERCHANGEABLY, BECAUSE YOU CAN TELL WHICH IS WHICH. I THINK THAT IS APPROPRIATE. >>I THINK THE GOAL IS REALLY TO ADDRESS THE NEED TO GET THAT MISSING MIDDLE HOUSING AND SO, MY SENSE IS THAT THIS IS NOT A COMPLETE LIST OF THE POTENTIALS. THEY ARE JUST EXAMPLES OF THE TYPE OF MISSING MIDDLE HOUSING THAT SHOULD HAVE AT A MINIMUM BE CONSIDERED. >>OKAY. >>I AGREE WITH YOUR INTERPRETATION OF THAT. OKAY, THIS IS ITEM 15, IT WOULD APPROVE A PROVISO $500,000 IN OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FOR THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT . THOSE IN SUPPORT, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>OKAY. AND THEN THE NEXT ITEM IS TO ADD $35,000 GENERAL FUND TO OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FOR A NATURAL CAPITAL VALUATION STUDY . IS THAT YOURS? >>THAT IS FROM COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD AND IT IS RELATED. IT IS SEEKING TO INSERT ISSUES RELATED TO NATURAL CAPITAL AND ECOSYSTEM SERVICES INTO THINKING REGARDING THE NEXT PLAN UPDATE. >>GREAT. COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>THANK YOU. THIS BUDGET ACTION DERIVES FROM A STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT RESPONSE FROM FAS FROM A PREVIOUS BUDGET CYCLE. AT THE LAST MEETING I CIRCULATED A LETTER OF SUPPORT SIGNED BY A NUMBER OF ORGANIZATIONS. HEAD IS LOOKING AT — THE ENVIRONMENTAL INTENTIONS INCLUDING INCREASING THE TREE CANOPY. EARTH ECONOMICS, ONE GROUP THAT COULD DO THIS WORK HAS SUBMITTED A PROPOSAL AND WORK DESCRIPTION. WHAT I JUST SHARED WITH YOU IS A COPY OF THAT PROPOSAL AND WORK DESCRIPTION. OF THE TWO APPROACHES MENTIONED ON THE GREEN SHEET, THEY BELIEVE THAT THE SECOND WOULD BE MOST PRODUCTIVE AND THAT IS TO EMBED THE CONCEPTS OF ECOSYSTEM SERVICES INTO THE SCOPE OF THE MAJOR UPDATE OF THE PLAN NEXT YEAR. THE EIS SCOPING BEGINS NEXT YEAR SO THIS WOULD BE TIMELY. AND, LET ME SEE IF THERE IS ANYTHING MORE TO ADD, I MENTIONED THE LETTER THE LAST TIME THAT WE MET AND CIRCULATED A COPY OF THAT WITH THE COUPLE OF DOZEN ORGANIZATIONS INCLUDING THE SEATTLE AUDUBON, PCC, OPEN SPACE ADVOCATES AND A LOT OF FOLKS SIGNED A LETTER ASKING FOR US TO DO THIS WORK >>GREAT, THANK YOU. THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING NUMBER 16, ADD $35,000 GENERAL FUND TO OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT FOR A NATURAL CAPITAL VALUATION STUDY , PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>THANK YOU. >>THE NEXT, ITEM 17 PLEASE. >>THIS ADDS ADD $1,075,000 GENERAL FUND TO OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT TO SUPPORT CENTRAL AREA COMMUNITY . THAT WOULD BE ADED TO THE LIST OF EQUITABLE FILAMENTS. >>THANK YOU. >>JUST, QUICKLY DESCRIBE THIS. THIS IDEA CAME FROM A NUMBER OF SENIOR PASTORS OF BLACK CHURCHES IN THE CENTRAL DISC IT DISTRICT. THEY HAVE BEEN HAVING CONVERSATIONS AT THE INSTITUTE FOR A YOUR ARE TWO NOW. THE FACT IS THAT MANY OF THE HISTORIC BLACK CHURCHES IN THE AREA ARE FACING DISPLACEMENT AND ARE FINDING IT HARD TO MAINTAIN A FOOTHOLD IN THE DISTRICT THAT HAS SEEN SUCH INCREDIBLE GENTRIFICATION. THEY WOULD LOCK LIKE TO BUILD AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON THEIR PROPERTY. MANY OF THEM HAVE PARKING LOTS AND OTHER LOTS THAT COULD BE THAT LEHIGH IS INTERESTED IN PARTNERING WITH MANY ARE EAGER TO SEE THESE GET OFF THE GROUND. THEY ARE PART OF A TASK FORCE THAT HAS OTHER PASTORS AND COMMUNITY LEADERS AS WELL. AND WHAT THEY HAVE RECOGNIZED IS THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO ACTUALLY PROVIDE AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR BLACK FAMILIES TO COME BACK TO THE CENTRAL DISTRICT BUT AT THE SAME TIME, ALLOW THE CHURCHES THEMSELVES TO SURVIVE FROM THE REVENUE THAT THEY MIGHT EARN FROM THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECTS. THEY HAVE COME TOGETHER AS A COALITION TO HELP FUND THIS. I WAS JUST TALKING TO COUNCILMEMBER O’BRIEN. AND I KNOW THERE ARE CONCERNS THAT THIS MAY NOT BE PUTS THROUGH THE SAME PROCESS AS THE OTHER APPLICANTS AND I ACKNOWLEDGE THAT. BUT I WANTED TO PUT THIS FOR BECAUSE SUCH PROJECTS TO BE FUNDED FULLY AND I DON’T THINK IT IS RIGHT FOR US TO CONTINUE TO TELL THEM THAT THEY HAVE TO COMPETE FOR THIS MINIMAL FUND AND FOR SPECIFICALLY, WHY WE BROUGHT THIS FORWARD, ALTHOUGH IT IS PART OF THE EDI, THIS IS THE DISTRICT WHERE THE BLACK COMMUNITY HAS BEEN SO GENTRIFIED. IT IS JUST STUNNING. IT FEELS LIKE THIS SHOULD BE A PRIORITY FOR ALL OF US AND I DEFINITELY THINK THAT ANY OF YOU WILL AGREE, WHETHER IT IS FUNDED OR NOT, THEY SHOULD BE. I THINK IT IS IN PORTON TO RECOGNIZE THAT. >>VERY GOOD. >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF $1,075,000 GENERAL FUND TO OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT TO SUPPORT CENTRAL AREA COMMUNITY IS RAISE YOUR HAND. >>JUST A SECOND. >>I AM NOT GOING TO RAISE MY HAND ON THIS AND I FEEL, I FEEL THAT I WOULD BE VERY SUPPORTIVE , AND I THINK WE WE GET TO OTHER PARTS OF THE BUDGET WE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT WAYS TO ADD FUNDING TO THE INITIATIVE BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THERE ARE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE PROJECTS THAN THERE HAS BEEN FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR. OR TO USE A SIMILAR PROCESS FOR SOME OF THE OTHER FUNDING THAT IS COMING THROUGH. BUT, I REALLY WANT TO HONOR THE COMMUNITY DRIVEN PROCESS ON HOW THEY HAVE COME TOGETHER ON PRIORITIZING. I AM LOOKING AT THE AWARDEES LAST YEAR. JUST OVER $1 MILLION FOR AFRICA TIME. ALMOST 1 MILLION FOR THE SEATTLE CLUB. AFFORDABLE HOUSING, UNITED INDIANS OF ALL TRIBES, THOSE ARE PROJECTS THAT JUST, READING REALLY QUICKLY ABOUT THEM, THEY ARE AMAZING. I KNOW THAT THERE ARE A NUMBER OF OTHER PROJECTS THAT SOUND AMAZING. I AM NOT IN A POSITION TO PICK RIGHT NOW. I THINK THERE IS AN OUTSTANDING PROCESS THAT IT DOES THAT PRIORITIZING AND NOT JUST WHICH ONES SHOULD GET FUNDED THIS YEAR. THERE ARE A LOT OF AMAZING PROJECTS OUT THERE. I AGREE THAT $5 MILLION IS NOT ENOUGH TO MEET THE DEMAND AND WE NEED ADDITIONAL FUNDING IN THERE. BUT EARMARKING IT FOR A SPECIFIC PROJECT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT I WILL RAISE MY HAND FOR. >>I WANT TO THANK COUNCIL MEMBER SAWANT FOR BRINGING THIS FORWARD. I REMEMBER WHEN THIS PROJECT STARTED 20 YEARS AGO. IT HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME AND I APPRECIATE THAT IN THE HISTORY. BUT I WILL BE SUPPORTING WHAT COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN SHARED. I CANNOT RAISE MY HAND TO THIS, AT LEAST NOT TO THE TUNE OF $1 MILLION. I DO WANT TO RESPECT AND CONTINUALLY SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY DRIVEN PROCESS THAT WE HAVE IN PLACE FOR THE EDI FUNDING. WE KNOW THAT WHEN THE SALE HAPPENED, ALL OF THE COMMUNITY GROUPS THAT WE MET WITH AND WHEN WE WERE MEETING WITH OPCD WITHOUT THEY WERE SCORING PROJECTS IN WHY SOME GOT MONEY AND SOME DID NOT, A LOT OF IT WAS THAT THEY ALL HAD THEY WERE ALL GREAT PROJECTS BUT THEY HAD TO MAKE CHOICES. THIS IS WHAT WE LOOKED AT AND THIS IS WHAT THE OVERSIGHT WAS. THAT IS WHERE A COMPOUND TO ACCOUNTABILITY IS SO I CANNOT RAISE MY HAND TO THIS. >>I WILL SUGGEST THAT WE DO THIS IN TWO-TIER. ONE IS THAT THIS IS HIGH PRIORITY AND MANY OF US WANT MONEY TO GO INTO EDI SO YOU CAN SAY THAT YOU WANT TO SUPPORT THE GENERAL PROCESS. I THINK THAT IS WHAT COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN WAS SAYING. THOSE THAT THINK THIS IS A TIER 1. >>THANK YOU. >>AND THOSE THAT FEEL IT IS A TIER 2 PRIORITY. >>SO WE DON’T WANT TO EARMARK THE FUNDING FOR THAT BUT WE DO WANT MORE MONEY FOR EDI? >>YES. JUST TO CLARIFY >>I’VE GOT IT. >>THE NEXT, THAT IS, COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT 5-A-1 . AND THAT IS 55. >>THIS IS A PROPOSAL FROM COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. IT WOULD PROVIDE ADDITIONAL FUNDING FOR CONSULTANT SUPPORT TO THE EDI PROGRAM TO CONTRACT WITH AN ORGANIZATION WITH A DEEP HISTORY IN THE AFRICAN- AMERICAN HISTORY IN THE CENTRAL AREA TO PROVIDE REAL ESTATE ASSESSMENTS. >>LET ME DISTINGUISH THIS FROM A SMALLER AMOUNT. THE THERE ARE A NUMBER OF ORGANIZATIONS OUT THERE THAT ARE BASICALLY REAL ESTATE, AFRICAN-AMERICAN OWNED REAL ESTATE ENTITIES THAT SPECIALIZE IN THE AREA OF LAND TRUST IN COMING OUT WITH THE SMART TOOLS TO DEAL WITH GENTRIFICATION AND DISPLACEMENT AND AFFORDABILITY. THE CONCEPT HERE IS TO FUND THESE ORGANIZATIONS TO WORK WITH THE OTHER ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE TRYING TO DO THIS. I HAVE REPRESENTED MT. ZION, FIRST GME AND MANY MORE. I HAVE A LOT OF EXPERIENCE IN WORKING WITH THE CHURCH COMMUNITY BUT THE COMPETENCY IS NOT REALISTIC. SO, AS THEIR ATTORNEY, I REMEMBER IT WAS NICE TO BRING IN THESE KINDS OF GROUPS. THIS IS A MODEST INVESTMENT FROM THE EDI THAT CAN BRING UP WAYS FOR US TO DEAL WITH DISPLACEMENT. >THANK YOU. >>BEFORE WE VOTE, I WANT ALL OF MY COLLEAGUES TO KNOW THAT I HAD ASKED CENTRAL STUFF THIS MORNING TO HELP GET A LIST TOGETHER OF ALL OF THE REQUESTING THAT WE HAVE MADE FOR CAPACITY BUILDING SO WE JUST HAVE A SENSE OF HOW MUCH EACH MONEY WE HAVE REQUESTED IN ALL OF THESE AREAS. COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ, DID YOU WANT TO SAY SOMETHING ? >>I JUST HAVE A QUESTION. IT IS UNCLEAR TO ME, BASED ON REMARKS FROM COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD AND THE WRITTEN LANGUAGE FORM B WHAT IS BEING PROPOSED. IS THE PROPOSAL TO ADD $100,000 FROM THE GENERAL FUND TO THE EQUITY DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE OR TO CARVE OUT $100,000 FROM THE EXISTING EDI FUND FOR THE PURPOSES OF DOING THIS WORK? >>IT IS THE FIRST. >>OKAY. I WAS TRYING TO RECONCILE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS ONE AND THE REQUEST FROM COUNCIL MEMBER SAWANT AND THE REQUEST FOR $1 MILLION. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE BEING CONSISTENT. >>THANK YOU, FOR THE CLARIFICATION. IT IS AN ADD TO THE EDI FOR THIS VERY FOCUSED APPROACH. I AM GLAD WE ARE DOING THIS. IT IS GREAT WORK. BUT WITHIN THAT EDI UMBRELLA, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE A CONSULTANT IN THEIR TO HELP THEM WITH SOME OF THE TOOLS THAT ARE AVAILABLE. IT IS IN ADDITION. >>WOULD THAT BE AN INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT? >>YES. ABSOLUTELY. >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING NUMBER 18 FOR $100,000 GENERAL FUND ONE-TIME TO OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT TO SUPPORT COMMUNITY-DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT, RAISE YOUR HAND. >>OKAY. >>SHOULD BE GOING TO NUMBER 19.>>JUST AS A REMINDER, OPCD IS 1-A-1 IS TO EXTEND FUNDING. >>I BELIEVE BECAUSE THE PROPERTY ACROSS THE STREET AT HAS STILL NOT SOLD, THE LOAN CAN BE PAID OFF. >>OKAY. >>THANK YOU. >>WE NEED TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE EXTENSION? BY A VOTE? >>WE WILL AT THE END OF THE PROCESS. >>WE ARE ON TO D.O.N.. >>COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION OFFICE OF PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT 5-A-1 — COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS 1-A-1 IS TO ADD $75,000 GENERAL FUND TO DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS TO SUPPORT THE SEATTLE REP’S PUBLIC WORKS SEATTLE PROGRAM. COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>KNOWING THAT THERE WERE QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW THIS PROPOSAL AFFECTS PEOPLE FROM SEATTLE ALL OVER THE CITY, WANTED TO PROVIDE SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TO WHAT WAS PROVIDED AT THE LAST COMMITTEE MEETING. AS WE ALL ARE AWARE, PUBLIC WORKS, THROUGH THE SEATTLE REP SERVES SEATTLEITES OF PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE CITY. THAT INCLUDES RECENT IMMIGRANTS AND WOMEN EXPERIENCING POVERTY AND THOSE RECOVERING FROM HOMELESSNESS, ADDICTION AND MORE. WE ARE TRYING TO SERVE NEIGHBORS IN NEED ACROSS THE COMMUNITY. HERE IS A BIT MORE DETAIL ABOUT THE GEOGRAPHIC IMPACTS OF THIS. I THINK WE ALL CARE ABOUT THESE HERE BOTH AS DISTRICT COUNCILMEMBERS AND CITYWIDE COUNCILMEMBERS. THEY HAVE WORKED WITH THE CENTRAL DISC IT DISTRICT AND OTHER RESIDENTS THAT ARE STRUGGLING TO MAKE ENDS MEET BY WORKING WITH THE CLIENTS AT BURGER BAR PLACE. THEY HAVE WORKED WITH WOMEN EXPERIENCING POVERTY RECOVERING FROM DOMESTIC ABUSE AND HOMELESSNESS OF THE JUBILEE WOMEN’S CENTER ON CAPITOL HILL. AS WELL AS WITH RESIDENTS AT SOJOURNER PLACE. THOSE ARE FROM DISTRICT 3 AND FOUR. AND ON CAPITOL HILL AT THE SEATTLE COLLEGE. IN DISTRICTS FIVE AND SIX THEY HAVE WORKED WITH THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB WORKING WITH THEM TO ENGAGE MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH. AND ALSO AT THE ROBERT EAGLE MIDDLE SCHOOL. AND ALSO IN DISTRICT 6, WORKING WITH OLDER ADULTS AND ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES AT THE BALLAD NORTHWEST SENIOR CENTER. AND THEN, IN DISTRICT 7, WORKING WITH PEOPLE RECOVERING FROM HOMELESS ADDICTION AND OTHER TRAUMA FROM THE PAST WITH ART HEADQUARTERS WHILE BRINGING PARTICIPANTS IN FROM ALL OVER THE CITY. THEY HAVE WORKED WITH THE COMPASS HOUSING ALLIANCE AS WELL AS VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES. AND DRAWING PARTICIPANTS FROM ALL ACROSS COMPASS HOUSING ALLIANCE AND THEIR NINE LOCATIONS. AND THEN, THE WOMEN’S REFUGEE ALLIANCE. THIS FALL, THE PUBLIC WORKS IS PLANNING TO WORK WITH TEENAGE WOMEN AT THE ALLIANCE IN DISTRICT 2 AND THEN EARLIER THIS SPRING, THEY WORKED WITH EARLY LEARNERS AT THE REFUGEE WOMEN’S ALLIANCE IN LAKE CITY EARLY CHILDHOOD CENTER IN DISTRICT 5. >>THANK YOU. ALL OF THOSE IN SUPPORTING THE $75,000, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. AND THE NEXT ITEM FOR THE PARK PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR. >>COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION DON-2- A-1 ADS $75,000 GENERAL FUND TO DON TO SUPPORT A SOUTH PARK PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR . >>COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>DISCONTINUES A POSITION THAT IS A HIGH PRIORITY TO THE RESIDENTS OF SOUTHPARK. IT IS SIMILAR TO THE PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATION THAT THIS COUNSEL HAS PROVIDED FUNDING FOR NUMEROUS YEARS IN THE INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT BUT THIS IS SPECIFICALLY DEDICATED TO SOUTH PARK. IT IS A TOP RECOMMENDATION OF THE TASK FORCE >>IN 2017. THIS POSITION IS A BILINGUAL PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR. THEY HAVE CONTINUE TO MEET AND CORNET THE WORK OF THE COMMUNITY TO DRIVE TOWARDS BETTER PUBLIC SAFETY OUTCOMES AND AGAIN, THE TASK FORCE ITSELF WAS COUNSEL GENERATED AND IT IS ALLOWING THE CONTINUED FUNDING OF THIS POSITION WILL ALLOW THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE TASK FORCE RECOMMENDTIONS ON A NUMBER OF OTHER PUBLIC SAFETY AND SEPTIC PRIORITIES. AT THE INITIAL MEETING I THE PAST AROUND THE BUDGET AND A REPORT THAT LISTS THE COMMUNITY PARTNERS OF THE PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR WORKS WITH AND LETTERS IN SUPPORT OF THIS úPOSITION FROM THE CLEANUP COALITION AND CONCORDE INTERNATIONAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING ITEM NUMBER 21 — I’M SORRY. COUNCIL MEMBER JUAREZ. >>I HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS. >>ARE THERE OTHER AREAS IN SEATTLE THAT HAVE A PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR? >>THE CHINA INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT DOES. >>UNDER THESE COORDINATOR SAID PAID FOR OUT OF CITY FUNDING OR PRIVATE DOLLARS? >>THIS IS A CITY FUNDED POSITION. THE CITY FUNDS THE SEATTLE GROUP AND WE WORK WITH THE SEATTLE NEIGHBORHOOD GROUP. >>HOW DO WE MEASURE WHETHER OR NOT THIS POSITION HAS BEEN SUCCESSFUL? >>SO, WE HAVE BASICALLY AN OUTCOMES REPORT THAT I WOULD BE HAPPY TO PROVIDE FOR YOU. THEY HAVE TO PROVIDE THAT TO THE CITY TO THE CITY TO DEMONSTRATE THAT THEY HAVE FULFILLED THE OBJECTIVES IN THE ORIGINAL GRANT PROPOSAL. >>DO WE KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SERVED BY THIS FUNDING? >>I DO NOT HAVE THE GRANT FUNDING OUTCOMES REPORT AT MY FINGERTIPS BUT I WOULD BE HAPPY TO PROVIDE THAT. >>NOW JUST SO I KNOW, COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD, YOU HAVE BROUGHT THIS UP MANY TIMES AND INDICATED THERE WAS TREMENDOUS COMMUNITY SUPORT FOR IT , IS THAT RIGHT? >>THAT IS RIGHT. >>COUNCIL MEMBER JUAREZ. >>AS THE CHAIR OF THE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE OF RECOGNIZE THAT THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT PUBLIC SAFETY INVESTMENT. WE HAVE, I THINK, FOR THE THIRD AND MAYBE EVEN THE FOURTH YEAR, WE WILL BE FUNDING THE CHINATOWN INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR IN THE SAME FASHION. THEY ARE A LITTLE FURTHER AHEAD BECAUSE THEY HAVE HAD A FEW ADDITIONAL YEARS TO ESTABLISH THAT PROGRAM. BUT I CONTINUE TO HEAR FROM RESIDENTS WITHIN SOUTH PARK THAT IT IS, AS COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD SAID, IT IS A LIFELINE TO CONNECT TO PUBLIC SAFETY SERVICES. WHEN WE CONSIDERED EXTENDING THE CHINATOWN INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT COMMUNITY PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR, SOME THOUGHT NOT TO FUND IT. BUT IF IT IS A GOOD STRATEGY AND IT IS ADDRESSING PUBLIC SAFETY STRATEGIES IN A WAY THAT DOES NOT TYPICALLY HAVE THAT CONNECTOR, I THINK THAT IS REALLY IMPORTANT FOR US TO MAKE THESE MODEST INVESTMENTS TO ALLOW FOR THAT TO HAPPEN. SO, SOUTH PARK AND CHINATOWN INTERNATIONAL DISTRICT ARE UNIQUE POPULATIONS IN THE SENSE THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY IMMIGRANT COMMUNITIS. REFUGEE COMMUNITIES AND COMMUNITIES WHO USE ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE AND TO HAVE REALLY SIGNIFICANT ONGOING PUBLIC SAFETY CONCERNS AND THIS WAS A COMMUNITY DRIVEN SOLUTION TO THAT. I FULLY SUPPORT THIS PROPOSAL IS SOMETHING THAT I THINK IS WORKING IN TERMS OF ADDRESSING THE PUBLIC SAFETY NEEDS OF THESE . I THINK WE HAVE SEEN UNPRECEDENTED ENGAGEMENT WITHIN THE CID AND THE SOUTH PARK COMMUNITY AS IT RELATES TO ONGOING CONNECTION BETWEEN THOSE COMMUNITIES AND PUBLIC SAFETY SERVICES. >>CAN I RESPOND? >>YES. >>COUNCIL MEMBER WAR IS, I HAVE COUNCIL MEMBER — COUNCIL MEMBER HARRELL IN THE Q. >>I AM NOT WHAT I AM GETTING AT. WHAT I AM GETTING AT IS, AND AGAIN, IF WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT NEIGHBORHOODS, LAKE CITY IS ONE OF THE MOST DIVERSE IN THE CITY. 25% OF LAKE CITY IS MADE UP OF IMMIGRANTS AND 30% OF LAKE CITY IMMIGRANTS LIVE IN POVERTY. SO WHEN I WAS ASKING THESE QUESTIONS, I THINK IT WOULD BE GREAT IF EVERYONE COULD HAVE A PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR. I AM NOT SAYING, I’M NOT SAYING THAT JUST BECAUSE ONE CITY OR ONE DISTRICT THAT EVERYONE GETS ONE. I GUESS MY POINT WAS, I JUST WANT TO WANTED TO KNOW, I AM SUPPORTIVE OF THIS BUT, MY POINT WAS THAT THIS IS THE REASON WHY WE WENT TO A DISTRICT SYSTEM SO THAT THOSE OF US THAT REPRESENT DISTRICTS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN HEARD FROM ON PARTICULAR ISSUES, THAT WE CAN DISPEL SOME NOTIONS THAT WE HAVE THE SAME ISSUES IN THE NORTH END ON THE SOUTH END. I AM TRYING TO RAISE THE QUESTION AND THE DIALOGUE TO LET START TALKING ABOUT SOME OF THESE POSITIONS IN OTHER AREAS OF THE CITY AS WELL. >>I AM HEARING FROM ALL THREE OF YOU, THAT THIS SHOULD BE BAKED INTO THE BUDGET AND NOT COME BACK YEAR AFTER YEAR TO ASK FOR ADDITIONAL FUNDING. >>COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD . >>I AM SUPPORTING THIS AND I LIKE IT. I THINK THAT THE COORDINATION, THE COORDINATION OF THESE POSITIONS AND THE CSO STRATEGY, DIFFERENT JOBS IN DIFFERENT STRATEGIES, I THINK IN FUTURE YEARS WE CAN LOOK AT HOW THOSE POSITIONS COORDINATE WITH ONE ANOTHER AND TRY TO GET TO THE SAME PLACE AND THAT IS GOOD SAFE COMMUNITY SETTINGS. >>AND YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT COMMUNITY SERVICE OFFICERS? >>YES. WE HAVE A CSO STRATEGY NOW. THESE PUBLIC SAFETY POSITIONS ARE AWESOME. I AGREE WITH COUNCIL MEMBER JUAREZ. WE ARE LOOKING AT EXPANDING AND I SUPPORT THIS ONE. IT’S THAT GREAT. CAN WE MOVE ON? >>I JUST WANT TO ADD TWO POINTS. ONE IS, I ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH COUNCIL MEMBER HARRELL. AND, I DO THINK THAT THERE NEEDS TO BE SOME INTENTIONAL CONNECTION BETWEEN THESE COORDINATORS. THERE IS ONLY TWO OF THEM IN THE CITY. TO CORRELATE WITH THE COMMUNITY SERVICE OFFICERS. AND, I THINK THAT THIS IS A SITUATION THAT THE PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR CZAR PEOPLE FROM THE NEIGHBORHOODS AND THE COMMUNITY THAT REALLY HAVE STRONG CONNECTIONS TO BOTH RESIDENTS AND BUSINESS OWNERS. THAT IS DIFFERENT THAN THE COMMUNITY SERVICE OFFICERS WHO MAY OR MAY NOT LIVE ANYWHERE NEAR THE AREA THAT THEY ARE SERVING. BUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE COORDINATOR POSITIONS IS THAT THEY REALLY ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE EMBEDDED. A LOT OF TIMES THE LIVE AND WORK UNDER LEGACY RESIDENTS OF THAT SPACE AND HAVE MEANINGFUL CONNECTIONS WITH THAT AREA. >>WHO CHOOSES THEM? >>IT IS A COMMUNITY ORGANIZATION. IN CHINATOWN IT IS HOUSED BY ONE PLACE AND THEN IN SOUTH PARK IT IS HOUSED BY ANOTHER GROUP. I THINK IT IS VERY COMPLIMENTARY TO ONE ANOTHER AND GIVES US THAT FULL NETWORK OF THE BASIS WE NEED TO REALLY GET A GOOD UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THAT NEIGHBORHOOD LEVEL OR AT THAT MICROLEVEL PUBLIC SAFETY CONCERNS ARE. AND THE LAST THING I WANT TO SAY REALLY QUICKLY IS, THESE PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR POSITIONS FLOW DIRECTLY OUT OF PUBLIC SAFETY TASK FORCES THAT WERE DRIVEN BY THE MAYOR AT THE TIME AND BY THE CITY COUNCIL. AND SO, I HOPE THAT IS A MODEL THAT WILL BE CONSIDERED IN THE FUTURE TO REALLY DIG INTO AT THE NEIGHBORHOOD LEVEL WHAT SOME OF THOSE PUBLIC SAFETY CONCERNS ARE THAT COULD LEAD TO THE CREATION OF A PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR IF THAT IS WHAT THE TASK FORCE, FOR SPECIFIC PARTS OF THE CITY WISHES TO SEE AS AN OUTCOME. >>GREAT. >>ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF ITEM NUMBER 21, $75,000 GENERAL FUND TO DON TO SUPPORT A SOUTH PARK PUBLIC SAFETY COORDINATOR, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>VERY GOOD. THANK YOU. I THINK WE ARE MOVING IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. >>NEXT IS ITEM 22. THAT IS COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION DON-3-A-1 . $34,000 GENERAL FUND ONE-TIME TO DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS FOR HUB IN A BOX .>>I CAN PROVIDE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION IF NECESSARY. BUT COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ HAS THIS. >>PLEASE, COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. YOU ARE ON. >>SO, HUB IN A BOX PLACES APPLIES IN AREAS THAT ARE TYPICALLY NOT ENGAGED IN THE CITY. PRIORITY OF THESE DOLLARS THAT HAVE LOWER RATES OF HOUSEHOLD CAPACITY FOR HOUSEHOLD PREPAREDNESS AND I AM HAPPY TO BRING THIS FORWARD AND ONCE AGAIN, I THINK THIS IS THE FOURTH YEAR THAT I HAVE ASKED FOR, THE THIRD YEAR THAT CINDY IS REMINDING ME, THIS IS THE THIRD TIME I HAVE ASKED FOR THESE FUNDS TO BE ADDED. BUT REALLY, IT DOES FUND THIS VOLUNTEER PROGRAM THAT IS WITHIN THE NEIGHBORHOODS AT THE GRASSROOTS LEVEL AND IT ALLOWS NEIGHBORHOODS TO INVEST IN THEIR OWN RESILIENCY IN THE FACE OF A DISASTER. SO I SEE THIS IS A CRITICAL PART OF OUR ONGOING CITYWIDE PREPAREDNESS PLAN. THERE ARE HUBS, AND CINDY CAN LET ME KNOW, THERE ARE HUBS ACROSS THE CITY. SO THIS IS A CITYWIDE PROGRAM FOR THE DISTRICT COUNCIL MEMBERS SO YOU CAN HAVE CONFIDENCE THAT THEIR ARE HUB IN A BOX PROGRAMS IN YOUR DISTRICTS. >>VERY GOOD. >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING RECOMMENDATIONS FROM COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ AND THAT IS $34,000 GENERAL FUND ONE-TIME TO DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS FOR HUB IN A BOX, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>THANK YOU. >>THE NEXT ITEM IS AN SLI. >>THAT’S RIGHT. THAT IS COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION SLI DON-4-A-1. IT IS A REQUEST THAT DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS REPORT ON LONG- TERM FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES TO PRESERVE AND ENHANCE P-PATCHES . COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN. >>COLLEAGUES, I WILL SPEAK, JUST BRIEFLY TO THIS P-PATCH PROGRAM. THERE ARE SO MANY ASPECTS OF THIS THAT ARE JUST AMAZING. IT IS A HUGE BENEFIT TO COMMUNITIES THROUGHOUT AND ACROSS SEATTLE. IN THE CURRENT BUDGET, THE PROPOSAL FROM THE MAYOR PUTS ABOUT $3 MILLION OF THE SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX INTO P- PATCH INVESTMENTS. WE WILL EVENTUALLY GET TO SOME PROPOSALS TO SHIFT THAT IN RESPONSE TO CONCERNS I HAVE HEARD FROM THE COMMUNITY ADVISORY BOARD FOR THE SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX. AND SPECIFICALLY, THE CONCERN IS CONSISTENT WITH SOME OF THE WORK WE DID AROUND THAT FUND. AND THAT IS ABOUT FUNDING COMING FROM THAT TAX SOURCE WHICH IS DISPROPORTIONATELY GOING TO CERTAIN COMMUNITIES. THIS SHOULD NOT BE, IT SHOULD BE DEDICATED BACK TO COMMUNITIES TO HELP AND SPECIFICALLY, WE HAVE BEEN DEDICATED FOR FOOD. I AM WORKING TO REFINED FUNDING FOR THE P-PATCH AND THAT IS A PART OF WHAT THE P-PATCH PROGRAM DOES BUT NOT ENTIRELY. THE P-PATCH PROGRAM DOES NEED ONGOING REVENUE BEYOND WHAT IS IN THE CURRENT GOVERNMENT BUT I DON’T THINK THAT THE SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX IS AN APPROPRIATE PLACE. I THINK SOMETHING LIKE A PROPERTY TAX IS A MORE APPROPRIATE PLACE FOR THAT TO BE. SO I WOULD ASK THAT AS THE COUNCIL PREPARES TO UPDATE SPENDING FROM THE PARKS DISTRICT NEXT YEAR THAT THEY LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO USE THAT FUNDING TOOL FOR AN ONGOING SUPPORT OF P-PATCH NEEDS BEYOND THE FOOD ACCESS THAT WE WILL TALK ABOUT LATER ON. >>COUNCIL MEMBER ROSS. >>I UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS BUDGET NEUTRAL. THIS IS WHAT MY CONCERN IS AS THE CHAIR OF THE METROPOLITAN PARK DISTRICT. LAST YEAR WHEN THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS ATTEMPTED TO MOVE THE P-PATCHES INTO MY COMMITTEE FOR PARKS AND THE LANGUAGE OF LOOKING AT FUNDING FOR P-PATCHES VIA THE METROPOLITAN PARKS DISTRICT. THIS IS MY CONCERN. I THINK WE NEED TO REMAIN TRUE TO THE INTENT OF THE METROPOLITAN PARKS DEPARTMENT AND WHAT WAS ASKED FOR WHEN WE PASSED THAT LAW AND WE CREATED THE MPD AND OUR FOCUS ON LIBRARIES AND COMMUNITY CENTERS AND WHAT THAT WAS SET ASIDE FOR. I UNDERSTAND WHAT COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN IS SAYING AND I SUPPORT AND COMMEND HIM FOR THAT BUT, AS SOME OF YOU KNOW, MY CONCERN IS THAT I DO NOT WANT TO GO DOWN THIS SLIPPERY SLOPE WHERE ALL OF THE SUDDEN, WE ARE LOOKING AT MPD FUNDING THIS DISTRICT AND PICKING UP THE TAB FOR P-PATCHES WHEN THEY BELONG IN THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS. THAT IS THE CONCERN THAT I HAVE. UNFORTUNATELY, I CANNOT SUPPORT THIS SLI. >>JUST TO BE CLEAR, THE LANGUAGE IN THIS ASKS, AND I OVERSTATED SO I WILL CORRECT MYSELF. IT ASKS THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS WORK WITH THE PARKS DEPARTMENT TO IDENTIFY FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES EITHER THROUGH THE PARKS DISTRICT OR OTHER ONGOING SOURCES OF FUNDING. AND OBVIOUSLY, THIS IS JUST A SLI SO IT WOULD BE RESEARCH AND A PROPOSAL BACK TO THE COUNCIL NEXT YEAR. >>COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>IS A READ THE SLIDE, THE REASON THAT MPD IS OPPOSED TO THIS, IT IS NOT A DEPARTURE TO LOOK AT THIS SOURCE OF FUNDING. AND IT IS ALSO, THIS, SLI, IT IS NOT SPECIFIC TO THE METROPOLITAN PARKS DEPARTMENT ALONE ARE EXQUISITE TO IT. >>SO, I THINK WE HAVE MORE TO UNRAVEL HERE. BUT, I WOULD LIKE TO CALL FOR THE VOTE TO SEE WHO WANTS TO BE ADDED AS A SPONSOR ON THIS. THESE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>THANK YOU. CLEARLY, THERE IS SOME CONFUSION ABOUT THIS AND THE DIRECTION IT IS HEADED. SO BETWEEN NOW AND THE WEEKEND, WE CAN GET SOME CLARIFICATION. SO THE NEXT IS ITEM 24. THAT IS COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION DON-5-A-1. IT IS TO ADD $250,000 GENERAL FUND TO DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS FOR A COMMUNITY-LED PLACE-BASED VIOLENCE PREVENTION INITIATIVE. >>THIS IS FOCUSED IN THE WEST WOULD NEIGHBORHOOD AND IT WOULD BE MODELED ON THE BEAUTIFUL SAFE PLACE FOR YOUTH IN BRAINERD WHICH IS A PROGRAM THAT HAS BEEN RAN OUT OF THERE FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS. >>VERY GOOD. AND THIS IS COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >> THIS SUPPORTS THE WORK THAT IS BEING DONE WITH THE SUBCABINET IN THE OFFICE OF THE MAYOR. IT IS A REPLY TO A QUESTION AS TO THE COUNCIL BUDGET OFFICE RECENTLY NOTES THAT THIS SUBCABINET HAS EXPRESSED STRONG INTEREST IN APPLYING THIS IN OTHER NEIGHBORHOODS. AT THE NOVEMBER 19th MEETING, THE SEATTLE NEIGHBORHOOD GROUP AND OTHER MEMBERS TEAM WILL SHOW , SHARE A BUDGET PROPOSAL AND OTHER INFORMATION ABOUT THE APPROACH AND THE $250,000 PROPOSAL WAS CREATED IN COORDINATION WITH THE SEATTLE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS. THEY RECOMMENDED AN –. THEY ENCOURAGE INVESTMENT FROM RESIDENTS AGES 5-18. AND THE RFP FOR USE FOCUSES ON YOUNG ADULTS, 18-24. AND SO, THIS EFFORT IS FOCUSING ON DIVERSION FROM THE IMPACTS OF THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM FOR THE YOUNGER GROUP OF FOLKS. THE MODEL USES EVIDENCE-BASED INFORMED STRATEGIES TO ADDRESS THE PLACE BASED CAUSES OF CRIME AT FIVE FOCUS LOCATIONS KNOWN AS HOTSPOTS THROUGH NON-ARREST INTERVENTIONS. THESE INCLUDE BUSINESS ENGAGEMENT, CAMPUS SAFETY, POSITIVE INTERVENTIONS AND SAFE PASSAGE ACTIVITIES. AND YOUTH AND NEIGHBORHOOD ENGAGEMENT. I HAVE MET WITH THE PRINCIPLES OF THE MIDDLE SCHOOLS AND SOUTH HIGH SCHOOL ABOUT PUTTING FORWARD THIS APPROACH. AND, I UNDERSTAND THAT THE CHIEF IS CONSIDERING PLACEMENT OF, I FORGET WHAT IT IS CALLED. THE OBSERVATION TOWER THAT IS MOVABLE FROM NEIGHBORHOOD TO NEIGHBORHOOD. COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ, DRAM OR WHAT THAT IS CALLED? THERE WAS A LOT OF CONTROVERSY ABOUT THAT. IT IS AN OBSERVATION TOWER TO DO ENHANCED ENFORCEMENT IN AREAS THAT ARE CONSIDERED CRIME HOTSPOTS. THEY ARE LOOKING AT MOVING IT FROM ITS CURRENT LOCATION TO THE WESTWOOD VILLAGE SHOPPING CENTER. SHOPLIFTING HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A KEY CHALLENGE IN THE WESTWOOD SHOPPING CENTER. AND DENNY AND SAUL SCHOOLS ARE RIGHT UP THE HILL FROM SOUTHWOOD. I AM CONCERNED THAT OUR YOUTH ARE GOING TO BE CAUGHT UP IN THIS ENHANCED ENFORCEMENT AND THAT IS WHY I FEEL THAT IT IS REALLY CRITICAL THAT WE LOOK AT DESIGNING A PROGRAM THAT GETS THESE YOUNG PEOPLE INTO OTHER MORE PRODUCTIVE ACTIVITIES AND USING THESE PLAYSPACE STRATEGIES WILL HELP WITH THAT. >>THOSE — >>IT IS CALLED THE SKY WATCH BY THE WAY. >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF ITEM 24, $250,000 GENERAL FUND TO DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS FOR A COMMUNITY-LED PLACE-BASED VIOLENCE PREVENTION INITIATIVE IN WEST SEATTLE, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. AND THIS IS SPONSORSHIP, BY THE WAY. WE ARE JUST ADDING SPONSORS. >>THANK YOU. OKAY. WE ARE ON TO SPU. >>THANK YOU. I AM BRIAN GOOD NIGHT FROM CENTRAL COUNCIL STAFF. THE FIRST ITEM NUMBER IS AGENDA ITEM 25 AND IT IS COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION SPU-1-A-1. THIS ACTION WOULD ADD $30,000 IN SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES TO IMPROVE SHUT-OFF NOTIFICATIONS TO MULTIFAMILY BUILDING RESIDENTS; AND CUT $30,000 IN AN SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES RESERVE ACCOUNT IN THE WATERFRONT. THE CURRENT PROCESS FOR MULTI FAMILY BUILDINGS SHUT OFFS IS TO GIVE A 30 DAY NOTICE. THE DEPARTMENT NOTIFIES THE SEATTLE DEPARTMENT OF CONSTRUCTION AND INSPECTIONS 10 DAYS BEFORE THE SHUT OFF IS SCHEDULED TO OCCUR. THEFUNDING IN THIS ACTION WOULD ENABLE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS AN ACT OTHER ACTIONS. ONE WOULD BE TO TAPE AT 24 HOUR NOTICE TO THE ENTRANCES AND EXITS. AND IF THEY HAVE FEWER THAN 15 UNITS, THEY WOULD HANG NOTICES ON DOORS. AND THEY WOULD BE IDENTIFYING A POINT PERSON TO HANDER HANDLE CALLS RELATED TO THAT ACTION. THIS PROPOSAL COMES FROM COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>THANK YOU. COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>THAT WAS A VERY COMPLETE EXPLANATION. I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES FOR HELPING US TO IMPROVE THE SHOT OFF NOTIFICATION POLICY. IT WOULD COME FROM THE WATER RESERVE ACCOUNT. SO IT IS NOT A GENERAL FUND DRAIN. I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES AFTER A CONSTITUENT BROUGHT THE ISSUE TO ME ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE PROPERTY OWNER IS NOTIFIED AND NOT THE TENANT. THERE IS ALSO A 59 UNIT BUILDING IN MAGNOLIA AND TENANTS HAD TO BEAR THE COST WHEN THE BUILDING OWNER DOES NOT PAY THE SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES BILL AND THE TENANTS ARE UNAWARE OF THE PENDING BILL. BRIAN DID A GREAT JOB OF EXPLAINING WHAT THE CURRENT PRACTICE IS AND WHAT THE INTENDED NEW PRACTICE IS. I WOULD LOVE FOR YOUR SUPPORT TO HELP FUND THE NEW PRACTICE. >>THOSE IN FAVOR OF ADDING YOUR NAME. >>I JUST HAVE A COMMENT IF I MAY. >>I THINK IT MAKES GOOD POLICY SENSE BUT IT JUST SEEMS TO ME THAT IN SUCH A HUGE BUDGET THAT SPU HAS THAT THEY CAN FIND IT. >>THEY ARE FUNDING IT. IT WILL COME FROM THE WATER RESERVE ACCOUNT. IT IS NOT A GENERAL FUND DROP. >>SO, IS IT AN AD? >>IT IS AN ALLOCATION FROM AN EXISTING FUND. >>IT IS AN AD IN ONE AREA BUT TAKEN FROM ANOTHER PLACE. IT IS BUDGET NEUTRAL. >>I SEE. VERY GOOD. >>THANK YOU, FOR THAT CLARIFICATION. THOSE IN FAVOR OF SUPPORTING ITEM NUMBER 25, TO IMPROVE SHUT OFF NOTIFICATIONS AND WANT TO OTHER NAMES AS SPONSORS. >>THANK YOU. >>VERY GOOD. AND JUST AS A QUICK NOTE TO ALL, IT IS 10:55 AM SO WE HAVE BEEN CLOSE TO 1.5 HOURS HERE. WE HAVE 60 REQUEST TO GET THROUGH. AND, AS THAT MORNING AND AFTERNOON? >>YES. WE ONLY HAVE FOUR MORE OR FIVE MORE THIS MORNING. >>THERE ARE ONLY FIVE MORE FOR THIS MORNING. >>BUT IS THAT THE PLAN? MY NOTES HAD SAID THAT WE ARE GOING UNTIL NOON TO KEEP GOING AS MANY AS WE CAN? SO THAT WE CAN HAVE A LONGER TIME THIS AFTERNOON. >>I THINK IF WE COULD TAKE A 10 MINUTE BREAK WE COULD CONTINUE GOING. >>HOW DO PEOPLE FEEL? WOULD YOU PREFER? WOULD YOU PREFER TO HAVE MORE TIME THIS MORNING OR MORE TIME THIS AFTERNOON AND WE KEEP GOING? >>OKAY. >>I WAS GOING TO MAKE IT. I AM AGNOSTIC ABOUT THAT. AS LONG AS YOU DECIDE TO GO UNTIL NOON BUT I DON’T THINK WE SHOULD TRY TO FILL UP EXTRA TIME. >>THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WAS THINKING. >>WE CAN CHECK A FEW MORE OFF THIS MORNING I THINK. >>I WOULD LIKE TO BUT ONLY IN THE AFTERNOON. >>I THINK THIS HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH, ONE MINUTE. >>OKAY. >>SO, I AM GOING TO ASK EVERYBODY TO TRY TO, WE ARE NOT ARGUING PROS OR CONS. WE JUST WANT TO KNOW IF WE WANT TO SPONSOR THIS THIS MORNING. >>COUNCIL MEMBER. >>YES. >>MY RATIONALE IS ASKING FOR A 10 MINUTE BREAK IS THAT BRIAN IS SPONSORING THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION. HE JUST NEEDS A FEW MINUTES TO PULL HIS MATERIALS TOGETHER TO COME BACK. >>OKAY. RIGHT. WE WILL DO THAT. WE WILL FINISH THROUGH SEATTLE CITY LIGHT. WE WILL TAKE A FIVE- MINUTE BREAK BECAUSE EVERYBODY WILL TAKE 10 ANYWAY. SO, OKAY. LET’S MOVE ON. WE ARE NOW ON ITEM NUMBER 26. THIS IS A SLI. >>THIS IS SLI SPU-2-A-1. IT IS A REQUEST THAT SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES REPORT ON THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE CITY’S WATER PIPE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR A MUNICIPAL BROADBAND NETWORK . FIBER-OPTIC CABLE HAS BEEN DEPLOYED WITHIN THE WATER LINES. THIS IS INTENDED TO SAVE COST AND RESULT IN LESS DISRUPTION. IT WOULD REQUEST THAT IF YOU THINGS ARE EVALUATED. THE FIRST WOULD BE THE COST FOR INSTALLING THOSE AND HOW IT COMPARES TO THE COST OF TRADITIONAL DEPLOYMENT TECHNIQUES AND THE THIRD WOULD BE ANY SECONDARY BENEFITS THAT COULD ACCRUE TO THE CITY FOR INSTALLING THINGS IN THIS MATTER. >>VERY GOOD. WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK WITH THIS? >>THIS COMES FROM COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. IT >>I DON’T HAVE A LOT TO ADD OTHER THAN THE FEASIBILITY OF A USEFUL BROADBAND NETWORK HAS BEEN VERY LIMITED BY THE CITY ANALYSIS OF THE COST AND THIS CONCEIVABLY IS AN APPROACH THAT WOULD APPROACH THE COST. >>I STRONGLY SUPPORT THIS SLI. THE CITY HAS INVESTED PROBABLY OVER $1 MILLION IN LOOKING AT THE FEASIBILITY OF NINA SIMPLE BROADBAND. THIS IS EXCELLENT WORK LOOKING AT BOTH THE RATES OF THIS NEED FOR CONSUMERS TO PAY IT BACK AND CITIES THAT HAVE TRIED IT AND FAILED BUT THERE ARE SO MANY OF US TO HAVING MUNICIPAL BROADBAND THAT THERE IS QUESTION AS TO IF THE CITY IS CAPABLE OF COMPETING WITH THE PRIVATE MARKET. I AM SEEING NOW THAT, IN TERMS OF THE TECHNOLOGY AND THE WATERPROOFING IF YOU WILL, OF THE FIBER AND SOME OF THE OTHER TECHNOLOGY USED, THIS SHOWS A LOT OF PROMISE. I THINK WE’RE VERY WISE TO LOOK AT THIS AS A POSSIBILITY. >>THOSE IN FAVOR AS ADDING YOUR NAME AS A SPONSOR TO NUMBER 26 ON THE FEASIBILITY OF THE WATER PIPE INFRASTRUCTURE, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. THE NEXT WHEN IS COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION SLI SPU-3-A-1. IT IS A REQUEST THAT SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES NEGOTIATE THE PROVISION OF EVERY-OTHER-WEEK GARBAGE COLLECTION WITH THE CITY’S SOLID WASTE CONTRACTORS. THE IDEA IS TO REDUCE TRUCK EMISSIONS. IN 2012, THE CITY CONDUCTED AN EVERY OTHER WORK EVERY OTHER WEEK GARBAGE COLLECTON PILOT IN FOUR NEIGHBORHOODS. AT THE TIME, SPU ESTIMATED THAT IF IT WAS FULLY IMPLEMENTED THERE WOULD BE A 35% REDUCTION IN ADMISSION OF POLLUTION FROM THAT FLEET. IF YOU INCLUDED THE VEHICLES THAT COLLECT YARD WASTE. THE OMISSION REDUCTION WOULD BE –. THESE ARE IN EFFECT UNTIL 2029. THEY DO NOT CONTAIN A PROVISION TO MOVE TO THE EVERY OTHER WEEK COLLECTION. THE COMMITTEE WOULD BE PROVIDED WITH REPORTS EVERY FEW MONTHS. >>SUGGESTED CLARIFICATION. THE CONTRACTS THAT WE HAVE NOW ARE UP IN 2029. >>THAT IS CORRECT. SO WE WOULD NOT BE LOOKING AT ANY KIND OF REOPEN ON THE LINES? >>THAT IS WHAT THIS IS REQUEST. TO WORK WITH THE CONTRACTORS. >>THAT WOULD BE A PROBLEM. AND THE SECOND THING IS, >>JUST LET ME FINISH PLEASE. >>MY SECOND POINT IS, IF WE WERE TO DO THAT AND WE PICKED UP GARBAGE, I UNDERSTAND THE REDUCTION IN ADMISSIONS AND IF WE PICK IT UP EVERY OTHER WEEK INSTEAD OF EVERY WEEK, DOES THAT RESULTS IN REDUCED COST TO THE CUSTOMER? >>I BELIEVE IT WOULD. THE COST WOULD NOT BE PROPORTIONAL. THEY ESTIMATED A 10 OR 15% REDUCTION TO THE BILLS. >>SO WE DO NOT KNOW THEN, YOU ARE GUESSING AT 10-15% REDUCTION IF GARBAGE IS BEING PICKED UP EVERY WEEK? >>I AM GUESSING THAT IS WHAT WAS CITED BEFORE. >>THANK YOU. >>OKAY. DID YOU WANT TO RESPOND TO THAT?>>I JUST WANT TO SAY THAT OUR PROVIDERS ARE OPEN TO THE IDEA OF REOPENING THE CONTRACTS PRIOR TO 2029. I HAVE MET WITH THEM AND THEY RECOGNIZE THAT OTHER JURISDICTIONS HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR A LONG TIME. AND IN SOME CASES, THESE CONTRACTORS THEMSELVES HAVE BEEN PROVIDING THESE SERVICES. RENTON, TACOMA AND PORTLAND ALL HAVE EVERY OTHER WEEK GARBAGE. IN THE CASE OF RENTON THEY HAVE BEEN DOING IT FOR MORE THAN A DECADE. >>JUST A CLARIFYING QUESTION. THIS INTRIGUES ME. THIS IS A SLI AND I AM GOING TO SUPPORT IT. BUT, THE OWNERS, THE NEIGHBORHOODS AND THE PEOPLE THAT EXPERIENCE THIS, HOW DO THEY DECIDE IF THEY WANTED OR IF THIS IS SOMETHING THEY ARE INTERESTED IN. DO THEY JUST GO? HOW DOES THAT WORK? >>I THINK THAT WOULD BE PART OF THE PROCESS. IT WOULD BE A COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROCESS. AGAIN, WE DON’T WANT TO BEGIN THAT WORK, THAT COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PIECE UNTIL WE HAVE MORE MORE OF A FORMAL AND OFFICIAL CONVERSATION WITH CONTRACTORS AROUND WHAT THE COST SAVINGS WOULD BE SO THAT WHEN WE GO OUT TO THE COMMUNITIES AND TALK ABOUT THE IMPACT THAT WE ARE ABLE TO DO SO WITH SOME ACTUAL DATA BASED ON THE CONVERSATIONS. >>I JUST WANT TO GO TO THE POINT BY COUNCIL MEMBER JUAREZ WILL SEE SOME SAVINGS. >>AND TO BE, COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT, WHEN WE DO DID THIS PILOT IN THREE NEIGHBORHOODS IN 2014, OR FOUR NEIGHBORHOODS, WE ACTUALLY SURVEYED RESIDENTS AFTER THE PILOT AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT PEOPLE WERE DISAPPOINTED IN IS THAT THEY ANTICIPATED THAT THE BILL WOULD BE CUT IN HALF AND THAT IS LOGICAL. YOU HAVE HALF AS MUCH SERVICE. BUT THERE ARE DEFINITELY SAVINGS. I THINK PART OF THE ENGAGEMENT PROCESS WITH THE PUBLIC PRIOR TO DOING THIS IS TO REALLY GET FOLKS TO WRAP THEIR ARMS AROUND WHAT THE SAVINGS ARE ABOVE AND BEYOND THE SAVINGS IN THEIR BILL. I THINK THE CITY FEELINGS AROUND CLIMATE CHANGE AND THAT OF OUR RESIDENTS AND OUR CITY IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN IT WAS IN 2014 AND I THINK THAT PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO SEE WHAT THE BENEFITS ARE JUST BESIDES THAT. BUT THAT IS A CONVERSATION I WANT TO HAVE AND THIS SLI WOULD ALLOW US TO DO THAT. >>IS IT 2012 OR 2014? YOU WERE SAYING 2012 AND COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD SAID 2014. >>IT WAS CONDUCTED IN 2012. >>THAT MAKES MY POINT EVEN MORE SO. THE OPINIONS AROUND CLIMATE CHANGE HAVE INCREASED GREATLY SINCE THEN. >>I CAN CONFIRM THAT THEY HAVE INCREASED. >>I HEAR WHAT YOU ARE SAYING AND I AGREE WITH YOU HOWEVER, MY SUPPORT ASSUMES THERE WILL BE A MONETARY SAVINGS TO THE CONSUMER AND NOT JUST DOING IT FOR IT THE ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY REASONS. >>THERE WILL BE BUT IT WILL NOT BEHALF. >>ONE THIRD? I’M JUST KIDDING. >>ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF ADDING THEIR NAME AS A SPONSOR TO THIS SLI FOR SPU, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>THANK YOU. >>THE NEXT ITEM IS FOR SOLID WASTE RATES. >>THIS IS SPONSORED BY THE BUDGET COMMITTEE. IT IS STATEMENTS OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT SCL-1-A-1. IT IS REQUESTING THE PASS CB 119672 SPU 2020-2022 SOLID WASTE RATES FROM APRIL 1, 2020 THROUGH APRIL 1, 2023. RATES WOULD INCREASE 3% AND BY 2.9% IN 2021 AND IN 2022. FOR A TYPICAL RESIDENTIAL CUSTOMER THIS IS ABOUT $1.50 INCREASE IN 2020 AND 2021 AND ABOUT A $1.60 INCREASE IN 2022. THOSE ARE OUTLINED IN THE STRATEGIC BUSINESS PLAN. >>GOOD NEWS. I DON’T WANT TO LOSE THE HEADLINE. THE RATES ARE LESS THEN WHAT WERE PROPOSED IN THE STRATEGIC BUSINESS PLAN TWO YEARS AGO AND I WANT TO THANK SEATTLE PUBLIC UTILITIES FOR WORKING ON A LOT OF THE ITEMS WITHIN THE STRATEGIC IS THIS PLAN THAT MYSELF THAT WAS IDENTIFIED AS ELEMENTS THAT CAN REDUCE RATES. WE DON’T OFTEN SEE THE ACTUAL RATE ORDINANCE COMING IN AT A LWER RATE THAN ANTICIPATED. >>THOSEIN FAVOR OF ADDING YOUR NAME AS A SPONSOR TO NUMBER 28, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>RIGHT NOW IS IT IT IS A PIECE OF BUDGET LEGISLATION THAT IS SPONSORED BY THE BUDGET COMMITTEE. >>IF WE DON’T NEED TO BE ADDING OUR NAMES AS SPONSORS, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. >>DOES THIS REQUIRE A COMMITTEE VOTE? >>THIS IS JUST AN ITEM OF INTEREST? >>IT IS BUDGET LEGISLATION SO WE DO NEED TO VOTE ON IT EVENTUALLY. >>BUT NOT TODAY? >>IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS WITH THE RATE, SPEAK UP. >>OKAY. SEATTLE CITY LIGHT. >>GOOD MORNING. I AM ERIC McCONNAUGHHAY FROM CENTRAL STAFF. THE FIRST THING WE ARE LOOKING AT STATEMENTS OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT SCL-1-A-1. THIS IS SPONSORED BY COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN. THIS IS A REQUEST SEATTLE CITY LIGHT TO REPORT ON ELECTRIFICATION OF ALL TRANSPORTATION AND BUILDINGS . I CAN SAY A FEW MORE THINGS ABOUT IT OR I CAN LET YOU TAKE IT FROM HERE. >>I WILL TAKE IT. THANK YOU. SO, COLLEAGUES, THIS SLI IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. IT FOLLOWS UP ON THE COMMITTEE THE COMMITMENT THAT WE MADE WHEN WE PASS THE GREEN NEW DEAL FOR RESOLUTION BACK IN AUGUST. IT ACTUALLY DOES TWO THINGS AND I BELIEVE AFTER CONVERSATION WITH THE DEPARTMENT THIS MORNING, I WILL BE PROPOSING TO SPLIT THAT IN TWO DIFFERENT STATEMENTS OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT. I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE STRATEGIC PLANNING PROCESS WHICH THEY ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF RIGHT NOW. BUT IT WILL BE COMING TO THE COUNCIL IN THE SPRING. AND THAT WOULD BE THE STRATEGIC PLAN UPDATE FOR 2021 THROUGH 2026. AND THAT WILL LIKELY BE WE WILL LIKELY BE ASKING FOR THE COUNCIL TO IMPROVE THAT. AND WE ASK THAT THE RATE DESIGN IS CONSISTENT WITH THE GOALS OF THE GREEN NEW DEAL FOR SEATTLE INCLUDING MAKING IT FREE OF POLLUTANTS ADVANCE AND EQUABLE TRANSITION FROM AN ECONOMY BASED ON EXPORTATION TO ONE BASED ON REGENERATION AND COOPERATION. ALSO IT WOULD CREATE STABLE GOOD PAYING JOBS. THIS WOULD ENSURE HIGH QUALITY WORK AND FAIR TREATMENT OF WORKERS. I WILL LIKELY BE ASKING FOR A SECOND SLI AND AT THE REQUEST OF THE DEPARTMENT I WOULD MAKE THIS A SLI THAT IS DIRECTED AT OTHER DEPARTMENTS. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THERE IS AN ANDROGEN INTERDEPARTMENTAL TEAM THAT MET THIS WEEK TALKING ABOUT THESE TYPES OF THINGS AND HOW THE DEPARTMENTS CAN COME TOGETHER TO WORK ON A NEW DEAL. SO WE WOULD BE SPECIFICALLY ASKING IF WE ARE GOING TO BE FULLY ELECTRIFYING OUR TRANSPORTATION AND OUR BUSINESS SECTOR BY THE YEAR 2030. AND THAT IS I BELIEVE THE LOGICAL SOLUTION TO ELIMINATING POLLUTION. AND WE WOULD HAVE A — THIS IS A LOOK AT THE TRANSMISSION LINES AND THE DISTRIBUTION LINES. IT WILL CERTAINLY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL INVESTMENTS AND SOME OF THOSE ARE INVESTMENTS THAT ARE ALREADY PLANNING TO HAPPEN. ESSENTIALLY THIS IS LAYING OUT A ROADMAP OF WHAT IT WOULD TAKE TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THEY CAN DO THAT WORK BUT THEY WOULD BE JUST A BIT BEHIND THE STRATEGIC PLANNING PROCESS AND IT IS SOMETHING THAT THE COUNCIL WOULD LIKELY SEE IN JULY. I WOULD SUGGEST BUT I WILL DEFER TO YOU CHAIRMAN, I WILL BE ASKING FOR SUPPORT ON THIS STATEMENTS OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT . FOCUS ON LINE 2 OF THAT PLAN. AND A LEADER IN THE PROCESS WE WILL BRING BACK ANOTHER SLI WHAT IS CURRENTLY LISTED AS LINE 1, WITH MORE DETAIL. >>IT CERTAINLY MAKES APPROPRIATE SENSE. ANY OTHER COMMENTS ON THAT? >>COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>AS IT RELATES TO TRANSITIONING TO AN AUTOMATED SYSTEM CAR YOU INCLUDING CONSIDERATION OF MARITIME TRANSPORTATION AS IT RELATES TO PORT ACTIVITIES? >>THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION. WHAT WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IS, I AM NOT SURE WHAT THE PROPER LANGUAGEIS BUT NOT AIR TRAVEL OR MARINE TRAVEL. IT IS TALKING ABOUT THE THINGS THAT WE DON’T HAVE DIRECT CONTROL OVER BUT MORE CONTROL OVER. IT WOULD BE THE PRIVATE AUTOMOBILE AND LIGHT DUTY VEHICLES. IT WOULD INCLUDE THE PUBLIC TRANSIT SYSTEM THAT IS LARGELY ELECTRIC. WE WANT TO INCORPORATE THAT ANALYSIS BECAUSE, AS WE CONVERT THOSE BUSES TO ELECTRIC BUSES, THAT WILL HAVE IMPACTS ON THE GRID AS WELL. >>SO JUST TO FOLLOW UP ON YOUR QUESTION COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD, I KNOW THE PORT OF SEATTLE HAS BEEN DOING A LOT OF WORK TO MAKE SURE THAT CRUISE SHIPS COMING IN CAN PLUG IN RATHER THAN RUNNING DIESEL THE WHOLE TIME THEY ARE HERE. ANY COMMENTS ON THAT? OUR RECORD MEETING WITH THEM? >>I KNOW THAT THERE IS ONGOING WORK WITH SEATTLE CITY LIGHT TO ELECTRIFY THE ON DOCK EQUIPMENT AND FREIGHT YARD EQUIPMENT. AND SO, IF FOLKS WOULD LIKE, AND I THINK IT MIGHT MAKE SENSE, TO INCORPORATE THE LANGUAGE AROUND THAT BECAUSE AGAIN, THAT IS ANOTHER MAJOR PLACE THAT COULD HAVE LOAD AND INVESTMENT FOR SEATTLE CITY LIGHTS THAT IS COMPREHENSIVE. BUT WHAT I WANT TO AVOID, AND I THINK YOUR SUGGESTIONS ARE ALONG THESE LINES, WOULD BE THAT SEATTLE CITY LIGHT WITH THAT THEY CAN MEET THE TRANSPORTATION NEEDS OF THE SYSTEM BUT WE COULD NOT DO THE PORTS. SO WE NEED TO KNOW ALL OF THE THINGS THAT WOULD BE NEEDED. >>VERY GOOD. SO THOSE OF US WHO WOULD LIKE TO ADD OUR NAME TO THIS SLI AS A SPONSOR, RAISE YOUR HAND. >>OKAY. >>WAS THAT YOUR FIVE-MINUTE BREAK BRIAN? >>NEXT, IT IS AN ITEM THAT WE DO NOT TO VOTE ON BECAUSE IT IS A COUNSEL BILL THAT WE WILL DEAL WITH LATER. DO YOU JUST WANT TO ADDRESS IT BRIEFLY? ú>>YES. AS YOU SAID, THIS IS BUDGET COMMITTEE. THIS WOULD PASS COUNCIL BUDGET 119674 AUTHORIZING SEATTLE CITY LIGHT TO ISSUE UP TO $250 MILLION IN REVENUE BONDS TO SUPPORT ITS CAPITAL PROGRAM . THAT WOULD OCCUR, IT WOULD BE ANTICIPATED TO OCCUR IN OCTOBER 2020. THE PROPOSAL RELIES, THE PROPOSED CAPITAL BUDGET FOR SEATTLE CITY LIGHT RELIES ON THIS BILL. >>OKAY. SEEING NO FURTHER QUESTIONS ON THIS, LET’S MOVE ON. WE DO NOT NEED TO TAKE THAT 10 MINUTE BREAK DOWN. >>SO, I AM BRIAN GOOD NIGHT FOR COUNCIL STAFF. WE ARE MOVING ONTO DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING OR ALSO KNOWN AS DEEL. THE FIRST ONE IS AGENDA ITEM 31. AND THAT IS A STATEMENT OF INTENT. IT IS A REQUEST THAT DEEL CONDUCT STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT AND REPORT ON INCLUDING LABOR HARMONY LANGUAGE IN CHILD CARE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM CONTRACTS . REQUIRING THAT DEEL LOOK AT LABOR HARMONY IN TERMS OF APPROVING APPROVALS. SO WE ARE ASKING FOR A FAMILY CHOCO CENTERS, DIRECTORS AND TEACHERS, AND LABOR ORGANIZATIONS. AND THAT THE MEETINGS BE USED TO SOLICIT FEEDBACK ON POTENTIAL OPTIONS FOR IMPLEMENTING HARMONY. AND WE WOULD PROVIDE A REPORT BY AUGUST. >>COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >> I AM SPEAKING ON BEHALF OF OF THIS SLI ON BEHALF OF OF COUNCIL MEMBER MOSQUEDA. SHE WANTS ME TO SHARE THE FOLLOWING POINTS. SHE SAYS, “IT HAS LONG BEEN A VALUE OF THE CITY THAT WE SUPPORT JOBS. WE HAVE SUPPORTED WORKFORCE AGREEMENTS OF $5 MILLION OR MORE RESULTING IN PREVAILING WAGES, UNION RECOGNITION AND APPRENTICESHIP UTILIZATION. WE HAVE ALSO IS ASKED THAT THAT BE CONSIDERED IN WATERFRONT IN THE LETTER THAT WAS PASSED LAST YEAR. THAT WOULD ALLOW DEEL TO INCLUDE LANGUAGE SUPPORTING DIRECTORS, TEACHERS AND LABOR UNIONS WORKING ON HARMONY PROVISIONS AND HOW TO BEST PROVIDE AN ARRESTED UNINTERRUPTED CARE THROUGH HARMONY. THEY HOPE TO HAVE THE WORK DONE BY THE FIRST OF 2020 IN ANTICIPATION OF CHANGES TO AGREEMENTS IN LATE 2020. I SUPPORT THIS. I THINK THE ORIGINAL APPROACH WAS JUST GOING TO REQUIRE LABOR HARMONY AND I THINK, THROUGH ADDITIONAL ENGAGEMENT, WE HAVE HEARD THAT THIS WOULD BE BEST TO TAKE AN APPROACH WHERE WE STUDY, LEARN, ENGAGE AND MOVE FORWARD WITH THIS. IT IS A GOOD REASONABLE APPROACH AND WE REQUEST THAT OTHER FOLKS SUPPORT IT. >>COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN. >>I AM ALSO SUPPORTING THIS. LABOR HARMONY AND HARMONY HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE A WIN FOR EVERYONE. I THINK THIS IS A GREAT APPROACH. I HOPE WITH THE CONSTRUCTIVE DIALOGUE THAT THE COUNCIL WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY NEXT YEAR TO INCORPORATE LABOR HARD ME HARMONY AGREEMENTS NEXT YEAR. >>THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO ADD YOUR NAME AS A SPONSOR TO THIS, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. OKAY. LET’S MOVE ON TO CBA DEEL-2-A-1 , ADDING $3.88 MILLION GENERAL FUND TO DEEL TO EXPAND ELIGIBILITY FOR THE CHILD. >>VISIT BUDGET ACTION IS LABELED CBA DEEL-2-A-1. IT WOULD ADD $3.88 MILLION GENERAL FUND TO DEEL TO EXPAND ELIGIBILITY FOR THE CHILD CARE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM. THEY WANT TO EXPAND MULTIPLE AREAS. THE FIRST IS TO IMPROVE AREAS WHERE PROVIDER SHORTAGES EXIST. TO STOP THIS EXPANSION, THE BUDGET WOULD PROVIDE DEEL WITH ADDITIONAL POSITIONS. AS A QUICK REMINDER, THE 2020 PROPOSED BUDGET INCLUDES $6.1 MILLION FOR CCAP. THIS WOULD SERVE 1400 CHILDREN PER YEAR. THIS COMES FROM COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>I WOULD LIKE TO ASK A QUESTION. HE SAID IT WOULD ADD 10 POSITIONS. WHAT ARE THE JOB DUTIES OF THIS 10 POSITIONS? >>THERE IS A VARIETY OF THEM. LET ME GET THE LIST. ULTIMATELY, IN ORDER TO HAVE MORE CHILDREN IN THE PROGRAM YOU NEED INTAKE REPRESENTATIVES AND A NEW MANAGER FOR THE POSITION. SO THERE IS ONE MINIATURE, THREE EARLY EDUCATION SPECIALISTS, FOR INTAKE SPECIALISTS AND AN ACCOUNT ADMISSION. THOSE ARE THE POSITIONS. >>SO HOW MUCH MONEY AFTER WE PAY FOR THE POSITIONS, HOW MUCH IS LEFT OVER TO EXPAND THE ACTUAL CHILDCARE FACILITIES? OR IS THAT A DIFFERENT CAPITAL REQUEST. >>IN THE COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION, $3 MILLION IS FOR ADDITIONAL VOUCHERS. >>THANK YOU, FOR THAT. COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>THIS IS A BUDGET THAT I AM ADVOCATING FOR. I HAVE SPOKEN A LOT AND WE HAVE SPOKEN A LOT ABOUT COLLECTIVELY, THE REALITIES AROUND THE FACT THAT SEATTLE CONTINUES TO BE A CHILDCARE DESERT. CCAP ISONE OF THE TOOLS THAT WE USE TO SUBSIDIZED CHILDCARE IN OUR CITY. I THINK IT IS A REALLY IMPORTANT PROGRAM. WE ARE APPRECIATIVE OF THE FACT THAT THE MAYOR HAS, IN HER ORIGINAL PROPOSED BUDGET, INCLUDED AN EXPANSION OF CCAP BUT AS WE CONTINUE TO DIVE INTO THE DETAILS WITH REGARDING THAT BUDGET, WE LEARNED OF SOME PRETTY ASTONISHING NUMBERS IN TERMS OF THE AVERAGE MONTHLY NUMBER OF CHILDREN SERVED BY EACH CATEGORY AND PROVIDER TYPE IN THE SPACE. IT BECAME VERY SURPRISING TO US THAT IN THE INFANT CATEGORY WE ARE ONLY SERVING 12 CHILDREN PER MONTH IN THE CITY WITH OUR CCAP PROGRAM. PRESCHOOL IS AT ABOUT 170 CHILDREN. SO THOSE ARE 3-YEAR-OLD’S AND FIVE-YEAR-OLDS. AND FOR KIDS THAT ARE AGES 5-12 YEARS OLD, WE SEE ABOUT 234 CHILDREN BEING SERVED. SO, AND I THINK MOST PEOPLE HAVE THE CONCEPT IN THEIR MIND THAT CCAP IS BEING HEAVILY ACCESSED BY PEOPLE SEEKING INFANT CARE OR TODDLER CARE BUT THE REALITY IS, THE WAY THAT THE MODEL IS STRUCTURED RIGHT NOW, WE ARE REALLY SKEWED TOWARDS ELEMENTARY AGE CHILDREN. AND CHILDREN WHO ARE CURRENTLY PARTICIPATING IN THE PRESCHOOL PROGRAM. THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO COMPLETE THE SPECTRUM OF INVESTMENTS THAT WE ARE MAKING IN THIS SPACE. WE HAVE SPENT A LOT OF TIME, AND I AM GRATEFUL FOR THAT TIME, TO EXPAND AND BUILD A QUALITY PRESCHOOL PROGRAM AND IT ONLY SERVES THREE AND FOUR- YEAR-OLDS THOUGH. WE ARE MISSING MANY OF THE BIRDS THROUGH THREE-YEAR-OLD CHILDREN AND THIS IS A WAY FOR US TO MAKE A SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENT AND PROVIDE DEEL WITH WHAT THEY NEED IN TERMS OF THE STAFF THAT THEY NEED TO BE ABLE TO DO A FOCUS ON BOTH PRESCHOOL AND ADDRESSING THE CHILDCARE NEEDS THROUGHOUT THE CITY. THIS IS A BIG ASK AND I RECOGNIZE THAT. IT IS A BOLD MOVE THAT WE CAN MAKE IN THE BUDGET TO MEANINGFULLY ADDRESS THE NEEDS OF THE LOCK OF AFFORDABLE CHILDCARE THROUGHOUT THE CITY. WHEN I HEAR STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE THAT ARE LOOKING AT A $2500 BILL EVERY MONTH JUST TO ACCESS INFANT CARE, WHEN THEY COULD POTENTIALLY BE QUALIFYING FOR THIS PROGRAM IF THEY KNEW ABOUT IT AND IF THEY QUALIFIED FOR IT, WE COULD BE HELPING A LOT OF WORKING FAMILIES STABILIZE. AND ALSO MAKING SURE THAT THESE KIDS IN THE 0-3 AGE SHOW UP READY TO LEARN AND THRIVE IN THESE PROGRAMS WHICH ARE ALSO SLATED TO EXPAND SIGNIFICANTLY IN THE UPCOMING YEARS. I HOPE I CAN GARNER THE SUPPORT TO ADVANCE THIS. I AM READY, WILLING AND ABLE TO WORK WITH MEMBERS TO IDENTIFY AN A WAY TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN. >>THOSE IN SUPPORT OF $3.88 MILLION GENERAL FUND TO DEEL TO EXPAND ELIGIBILITY FOR THE CHILD THESE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>THANK YOU. >>LET’S MOVE ON TO ITEM NUMBER 33. >>THIS IS COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION AND IT IS A PROVISO ON A PORTION OF DEEL CHILD CARE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM EXPANSION FUNDS TO INCREASE ACCESS TO INFANT CARE. ADDITIONALLY THE DEPARTMENT HAS ASKED TO DETERMINE IF THE NUMBERS CAN BE INCREASED. THE PROVISO EXPRESSES THAT THEY MUST RELEASE THE FUNDS IN THE BUDGET ACTION REQUESTS THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATIO AND EARLY LEARNING ISSUES A REPORT BY THE END OF MARCH. >>COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALES, WOULD YOU EXPLAIN HOW THESE INTERCONNECT? >>ABSOLUTELY. I APPRECIATE THE QUEUE. THAT IS EXACTLY WHERE I WAS GOING THEE. YOU KNOW, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING AND THE SUBJECT SUCKS THAT I JUST STATISTICS THAT I JUST LAID OUT THAT THERE IS NOT A LOT OF ACCESS IN THE 0-3 SPACE, THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT MY PRIOR PROPOSAL IS INCLUDED IN A BALANCING PACKAGE, THIS WOULD REQUIRE THAT ALL DOLLARS PROPOSED FOR EXPANSION OF CCAP BE PROVISO HOW UNTIL WE HAVE A PLAN FOR A DEAL THAT SHOWS US THE ROADMAP ON HOW THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT EXISTING DOLLARS FOR TUITION SUBSIDY OR DDRESSING THE NEEDS OF INFANTCARE IN PARTICULAR. I SEE THESE AS COMPLEMENTARY. THIS IS A WAY FOR US TO GET A WORK PLAN FROM DEEL TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE ADDRESSING IN AN APPROPRIATE AND BALANCED WAYS THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE THAT NEED THESE BENEFITS. >>THANK YOU, SO MUCH FOR DOING THAT. >>THOSE THAT WANT TO ADD YOUR NAME TO THIS PROVISO, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. THIS IS NUMBER 33. >>ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. >>THE NEXT ONE IS $375,000 GENERAL FUND TO DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING TO EXPAND THE CITY’S ROLE IN CONNECTING FAMILIES WITH CHILD CARE. AS WE TALK ABOUT THIS, WE WILL SEE HOW THESE INTERSECT. >>SO THIS IS COUNCIL MEMBER HARRELL. IT WOULD ADD $375,000 GENERAL FUND TO DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING TO EXPAND THE CITY’S ROLE IN CONNECTING FAMILIES WITH CHILD CARE. THERE IS A LACK OF ACCESS AND INFORMATION FOR PEOPLE THAT NEED TO SELECT CHILDCARE FOR THEIR SITUATION. WITH THIS FUNDING, DEEL COULD EVALUATE THE ROLE THAT THE CITY COULD PLAY IN CONNECTING PEOPLE WITH CHILDCARE PROVIDERS. THIS ITEM COMES FROM COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>THIS PROPOSAL IS REALLY EXCITING TO ME BECAUSE IT WOULD ALLOW THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING AN OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE THE RESOURCES THAT THEY NEED TO TAKE THAT 3000 FOOT LEVEL VIEW OF WHAT TOOLS AND RESOURCES ARE NEEDED TO PROVIDE OUR WORKING FAMILIES WITH THE OPPORTUNITIES CONNECT MEANINGFULLY WITH CHILDCARE THAT IS SUITABLE FOR THEM. IT CAN BE MARKET RATE CHILDCARE OR HOME-BASED CHILDCARE. WHATEVER IT IS THAT THE FAMILY NEEDS COULD BE ADDRESSED THEIR STRATEGIES DEVELOPED BY DEEL IN THIS SPACE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE TAKING MEANINGFUL AND DEMONSTRABLE ACTION TO SUPPORT FAMILIES IN THE CITY OF SEATTLE WHO CONTINUE TO STRUGGLE TO FIND CHILDCARE THROUGHOUT THE CITY. SO THIS IS, UNLIKE THE PRIOR BUDGET ITEMS THAT I AM ADVOCATING FOR, WHICH ARE SPECIFIC TOWARDS PROVIDING SUBSIDIZED TUITION DOLLARS FOR CHILDCARE, THIS ONE IS REALLY ABOUT PROVIDING DEEL DIRECTION AND FUNDING TO COME UP WITH A STRATEGIC PLAN AND AN ACTION PLAN WITH WHAT ADDITIONAL RESOURCES ARE NEEDED TO ADD TO SUBSIDIES TO ALLOW FAMILIES TO HAVE THEIR CHILDCARE NEEDS MET. THERE ARE LOTS OF JURISDICTIONS THROUGHOUT THE CITY THAT ARE LOOKING AT THIS INCLUDING NEW YORK CITY. THEY RECENTLY SET UP A CHILDCARE RESOURCE CENTER THAT PROVIDES CASE MANAGERS OR COUNSELORS AT THE CENTER. AND THEY CONNECT FAMILIES WITH WHATEVER CHILDCARE RESOURCES ARE AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE CITY. IT HELPS THEM NAVIGATE THE BUREAUCRACY OF WHAT IT MEANS TO APPLY FOR CHILDCARE. AT THE CITY THE IT COULD BE SUBSIDIZED OR JUST CONNECTING WITH OTHER TYPES OF CHILDCARE MODELS THAT COULD BE SUITABLE FOR THAT FAMILY. THERE ARE OTHER JURISTS DICTIONS THAT WE COULD LEARN FROM AND THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE DEEL THE RESOURCES THAT THEY NEED TO EVALUATE AND LOOK AT THOSE MODELS AND COME BACK TO THE CITY COUNCIL WITH MEANINGFUL PROPOSALS FOR IMPLEMENATION IN THE NEXT BUDGET. >>THANK YOU. COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO. >>I FULLY SUPPORT THIS FOR MULTIPLE REASONS. FIRST, I WAS READING AN ARTICLE THIS MORNING ABOUT HOW FAMILIES LIVE IN CHILDCARE DESERTS. WE KNOW THAT WE NEED TO DO MORE. SECONDLY, THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN MY DISTRICT, WHEN I THINK ABOUT WHERE THEY ARE IN THEIR STAGE OF LIFE, MYSELF INCLUDED, AND WHERE THEIR NEXT STAGE IN LIFE MIGHT BE, THEY THINK ABOUT NOT JUST THE WORLD THAT THERE CHILDREN WILL INHERIT BECAUSE OF CLIMATE CHANGE BUT ALSO, HOW DO WE SUPPORT AND MAINTAIN OUR FAMILIES. AND SO, I THINK THIS IS A GREAT IDEA. I APPLAUD COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ FOR THAT. >>COUNCIL MEMBER BAGSHAW, ONE MORE THING. >>SURE. >>THE STATE LEGISLATURE LEGISLATURE IS LOOKING AT EXPANDING CHILDCARE IN THIS SPACE AND I THINK WE NEED TO BE READY FOR THAT POTENTIAL REVENUE SOURCE IN EITHER BEING ABLE TO DIRECTLY RECEIVE FUNDING OR BEING ABLE TO LEVERAGE THOSE FUNDS THAT MIGHT BE COMING FROM ADDITIONAL REVENUE SOURCES AT THE STATE. MORE TO COME ON THAT. I HAVE BEEN HAVING CONVERSATIONS WITH MEMBERS OF OUR DELEGATION IN SEATTLE AND EVEN MEMBERS OUTSIDE OF THE DELEGATION THAT ARE LEADING AT THE STATE LEVEL ON EARLY LEARNING AND EDUCATION AND WHAT THEY ARE FEELING ABOUT THIS NEXT SESSION. I SEE THIS AS A REALLY IMPORTANT PRELIMINARY WORK FOR THE CITY TO BE READY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME OF THOSE ADDITIONAL REVENUE DOLLARS IN THIS SPACE. I HOPE THIS CAN GO HAND IN HAND.>>THOSE THAT WOULD LIKE TO ADD THEIR NAME — >>I HAVE A QUESTION. >>SURE. >>THIS MIGHT BE A BIT OF A STRETCH. THIS FIRST ROUND, WHEN THIS STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT WAS PROPOSED, WE TALKED ABOUT DOING FOLLOW-UP LANGUAGE IN THIS STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT BUT WE MAY HAVE LOST THAT IN THE TRANSITION OF STAFF. I AM INTERESTED TO KNOW IF DIAPER ACCESS MIGHT BE A BARRIER TO FAMILIES IN ADDITION TO NOT HAVING ACCESS TO SUFFICIENT FUNDING THROUGH THE VOUCHER PROGRAM. WHETHER OR NOT HAVING DIAPER ACCESS IS AN ADDITIONAL BARRIER TO FAMILIES SEEKING TO ACCESS CHILDCARE. SO PEOPLE MIGHT BE KEEPING THEIR CHILDREN HOME RATHER THAN SENDING THEM TO A PLACE THAT IS EXPECTING THEM TO HAVE THEIR KIDS COME WITH DIAPERS. AND SO, I AM WONDERING WHETHER OR NOT THIS COULD BE EXPANDED TO LOOK AT WHETHER OR NOT, USING OUR CHILDCARE FACILITIES AS A DISTRIBUTION CENTER FOR FREE DIAPERS. IF THAT MIGHT HELP ADDRESS THOSE BARRIERS. AGAIN, IF IT IS A STRETCH, IT IS A QUESTION THAT I WOULD LIKE TO LOOK AT THIS SEEMS LIKE A GOOD HOME. >>SO THIS IS NOT A SLI? >>THIS IS A PROVISO. >>I AM JUST I JUST TOTALLY LOST MY WAY. >>THIS IS ITEM 34. >>IF I MAY SHARE, I THINK THERE COULD BE AN OPPORTUNITY AS PART OF THIS $375,000 ADD THAT THEY LOOK AT THE OVERALL STRATEGIES AROUND COMING UP WITH A CITYWIDE STRATEGY AND ACCESS TO CHILDCARE. IT COULD ALSO EVALUATE, AND I IMAGINE WOULD EVALUATE EXISTING BARRIERS TO EXISTING CHILDCARE AND CERTAINLY DIAPER ACCESS COULD BE ONE OF THOSE THINGS. WE ARE HAPPY TO TAKE A LOOK AT THIS IN ITS SEED PROCESS TO ADD LANGUAGE THAT ENUMERATES THAT CONCERN AND THERE IS ALSO AN OPPORTUNITY IN THE CONTEXT OF THE PROVISO TO ASK, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THE PROVIDES ARE FUNDS ARE SPECIFIC TO LOOKING AT HOW TO INCREASE ACCESS TO INFANT CARE. THAT COULD BE AN EASY PLACE TO ADD CONCERNS AROUND DIAPER ACCESS. AND MAKING SURE THEY SPECIFICALLY ADDRESS THAT. >>I KNOW THAT WE TALKED ABOUT THIS AT THE TIME. BUT I DON’T KNOW IF THAT HAS BEEN INCORPORATED IN ONE OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS. >>I HAVE HAD A TRANSITION OF STAFF AND I THINK IT GOT LOST IN THE SHUFFLE. >>WE INTENDED TO CONNECT ON THIS BUT I SEE THIS IS A FRIENDLY AMENDMENT. WE WILL WORK TOGETHER TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO INCORPORATE THAT. BRIAN, IF YOU COULD HELP US KEEP TRACK OF THAT, THAT WOULD BE APPRECIATED. >>VERY GOOD. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS ON THIS? THOSE THAT WOULD LIKE TO ADD YOUR NAME AS A SPONSOR, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. AND THIS IS ITEM NUMBER 34 , $375,000 TO DEEL. OKAY. VERY GOOD. THE NEXT ITEM IS TO ADD $125,000 IN ONE-TIME GENERAL FUND TO DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING FOR AN ACCESS RAMP AT CONCORD INTERNATIONAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. I KNOW THAT BRIAN IS DOING THIS AND THEN WE WILL GO TO COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>THANK YOU. THIS IS COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING-7-A-1. AND IT WOULD ADD $125,000 IN ONE-TIME GENERAL FUND TO DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING FOR AN ACCESS RAMP AT CONCORD INTERNATIONAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. IT WOULD BE ADDING A RAMP THAT IS A SECOND PART OF A PHASE FOR INFRASTRUCTURE WORK. IT WILL ADDRESS UNSAFE ACCESS TO THE SCHOOL GROUNDS. THE PROJECT INTENDS TO REPLACE A DIRT PATH WITH A WELL LIT PATH THAT IS ADA COMPLIANT. THE PROJECT COST IS ESTIMATED TO BE $355,000. THE GROUP HAS RAISED $55,000. I WILL TURN IT OVER TO COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>I DO NOT KNOW THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING IS THE MOST APPROPRIATE DEPARTMENT FOR THIS BUDGET ASKED. THIS IS CLEARLY A CAPITAL REQUEST OF FUNDING . BUT, IT REALLY IS A HIGH PRIORITY FOR MY DISTRICT AND THE PTA HAS RAISED $270,000 TO IMPROVE THE SCHOOL GROUNDS AND ADDRESS SAFETY AT THE SOUTHWEST ENTRANCE. THERE IS A STEEP PATH GOING TO THE SCHOOL PARKING LOT THAT IS HAZARDOUS FOR SMALL CHILDREN. AND AS BRIAN MENTIONED IT IS A THREE-PART PROJECT. THE OTHER TWO PORTIONS OF THE PROJECT HAVE BEEN FULLY FUNDED. I DISTRIBUTED, AT THE PREVIOUS MEETING, A SUPPORT LETTER SIGNED BY SACHER BAILEY AND OTHER ADVOCATES FROM SOUTH PARK. THE RAMP IS ESTIMATED TO COST $354,000. $50,000 HAS BEEN RAISED SO FAR. I HAVE ASKED THE SCHOOL DISTRICT TO PARTNER IN THIS AS WELL. 86% OF STUDENTS AT THIS SCHOOL ARE PEOPLE OF COLOR AND MANY ARE ENGLISH-LANGUAGE LEANERS. 50% ARE BELOW THE FEDERAL POVERTY LINE WITH 73% OF STUDENTS QUALIFYING FOR FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH. THIS IS PART OF AN OVERALL PROJECT TO IMPROVE THE CAMPUS IN A NEIGHBORHOOD THAT IS BESET WITH ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS SO MUCH SO THAT IT IS VERY NEARBY A — SITE. I THINK THIS IS CONSISTENT WITH OUR WORK TO IMPROVE THE RESILIENCY OF THE COMMUNITY THERE. AND IN THIS CASE, OUR NON- LEARNERS. >>ANY COMMENTS. >>COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD AND THEN COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO. >>ARE THEY APPLYING FOR OTHER GRANTS OR AVAILABLE FUNDS AS WELL? >>THE PTA HAS RAISED $270,000 TO DO THE OTHER PARTS OF THE PROGRAM AND ANOTHER 50,000 FOR THIS ELEMENT. AGAIN, IN THE INFORMATION THAT I PASSED OUT, LAST TIME AND I DON’T HAVE THAT IN FRONT OF ME THIS TIME, THE BUDGET THAT WAS SUBMITTED SHOWS THE OTHER SOURCES OF FUNDING. I AM HAPPY TO SHOW SHARE THAT AGAIN. THEY HAVE BEEN GOING OUT TO A VARIETY OF FUNDING SOURCES BUT I DO NOT KNOW IF THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS IS ONE OF THEM. >>COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO. >>HOW ARE THESE PROJECTS SELECTED WHAT IS THE PROCESS THAT THEY GO THROUGH? >>AS FAR AS I KNOW THE CITY HAS NOT BEEN INVOLVED IN THESE PROJECTS BEFORE SO I DO NOT HAVE THAT INFORMATION. >>IT IS UNUSUAL. >>IT IS. >>JUST A POINT OF CLARIFICATION FOR COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>IS CONCORDE A PUBLIC SCHOOL? >>IT IS A PUBLIC SCHOOL. I KNOW WE HAD SOME CONCERNS LAST YEAR ABOUT SELECTING ONE PUBLIC SCHOOL THAT WE WERE ADDING MONEY TO BUT COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD MADE A PERSUASIVE ARGUMENT THAT THEY NEED ASSISTANCE. >>AGAIN, SO THE GROUP IS THE PTSA THAT WOULD BE FUNDED? >>THAT IS CORRECT. >>I REALLY APPRECIATE YOU LISTENING TO THE CONSTITUENTS AND TRYING TO ADDRESS A NEED. I DO THINK IT IS A LITTLE, I AM A LITTLE LEERY OF GETTING INTO CAPITAL INVESTMENTS FOR PTSA HAVING BEEN AN ACTIVE MEMBER FOR SEVERAL YEARS. I AM JUST NOT SURE THAT IS THE SPACE OR THIS IS THE RIGHT METHOD TO DO THAT. ANYWAY, BE THAT AS IT MAY, I APPRECIATE YOU BRINGING THIS TO OUR ATTENTION. >>ANY OTHER COMMENTS ON THIS ONE? >>THOSE THAT WANT TO ADD YOUR NAMES TO THE ADDITION OF $125,000 IN ONE-TIME GENERAL FUND TO DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING FOR AN ACCESS RAMP AT CONCORD INTERNATIONAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. >>LET’S MOVE ON TO REQUEST THAT DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING DEVELOP AN IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR THE WASHINGTON STATE OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIP AND REPORT ON PROGRESS. >>THIS ITEM IT IS NUMBER STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING 8-A-1. AND IT IS A REQUEST THAT DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING DEELOP AN IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR THE WASHINGTON STATE OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIP AND REPORT ON PROGRESS. IT WOULD COMPLEMENT THE SEATTLE PROMISE PROGRAM. THEY PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS TO LOW AND MIDDLE CAN INCOME STUDENTS TO THOSE SEEKING CERTIFICATES. IN THE 2019 STATE LEGISLATIVE SESSION THE PROGRAM WAS MODIFIED TO ALLOW MUNICIPALITIES TO CONTRIBUTE FUNDING TO THE PROGRAM, WHICH IS ALONG WITH STATE MATCHING FUNDS WOULD BE AWARDED TO STUDENTS. SEATTLE WOULD BE THE FIRST MUNICIPALITY TO PARTNER WITH WSOS. YOU WOULD RECEIVE A REPORT BY MARCH 31 DETAILING THE WORK. A RECOMMENDED FOCUS FOR THIS IS TO BE OFFERED AND THAT WOULD INCLUDE RECOMMENDED ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA AND RECOMMENDED FUNDING LEVELS INCLUDING FUNDING SOURCES AND THE POTENTIAL NUMBER OF STUDENTS THAT COULD BE SERVED AND THIS COMES FROM SLI. >>COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO. >>COLLEAGUES, THE WASHINGTON STATE OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIP PROVIDE SCHOLARSHIPS TO THOSE PURSUING A PROFESSION IN THE S.T.E.M. FIELDS. I THINK WE SHOULD LEVERAGE OUR OWN INVESTMENTS WITH STATE DOLLARS AND THIS IS AN EXCITING OPPORTUNITY THAT I HAVE WORKED IN THE PAST. WE WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS OUR INTEREST IN THIS MATCHING PROGRAM >>VERY GOOD. ANY OTHER COMMENTS ON THAT? >>IS THIS PROGRAM EXCLUSIVE TO S.T.E.M. PROGRAMS? >>NO. THEY HAVE EXPANDED IN THE LAST TWO OR THREE YEARS. IT INCLUDES APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMS, CAREER, TECHNICAL AND EDUCATION PROGRAMS AS WELL AS HEALTHCARE DEGREES. AND THOSE ARE THE HIGHEST NEEDS IN THE STATE. >>OKAY. SO, THE NONPROFIT SOCIAL SERVICE SECTOR IS WORKING TO FIGURE OUT WAYS TO BETTER PROVIDE KEY EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR PEOPLE THAT HAVE EXPERIENCED HOMELESSNESS AND POVERTY WHO ARE DRIVEN TO MISSION DRIVEN WORK. THEY CURRENTLY HAVE A SUCCESSFUL ASSET PROGRAM FOR PEOPLE THAT HAVE WORKED WITH THE HOMELESS AND THAT INCLUDES INCREASING EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES. SIMILAR TO THAT PROGRAM, CCS, SEATTLE CENTRAL COLLEGE AND OTHERS ARE PARTNERING TO PILOT A SIMILAR MODEL THAT WOULD BE AVAILABLE FOR A COHORT OF 24 EMPLOYEES AND ENTRY-LEVEL POSITIONS WITHOUT HIGH SCHOOL OR POST SECONDARY DEGREES AND THE IDEA WOULD BE TO FACILITATE ENROLLMENT AND THE COMPLETION — THAT WOULD COUNT AS A TWO- YEAR OR FOUR-YEAR DEGREE. I AM ORDERING AGAIN, THIS MIGHT BE A REACH, AND TELL ME IF IT IS, I AM WONDERING IF WE CAN FOLD IN SOME OF THIS WORK WITH THIS TUITION PROGRAM. >>I MEAN, I THINK THAT IS PART OF THE ENGAGEMENT PROCESS THAT SHOULD DEEL WOULD NEED TO UNDERGO. IN THE SENSE THAT, WHEN THEY DEVELOPED THE PLAN THAT INTEGRATES TO THE SEATTLE PROMISE AND PARTNERING, I WOULD SAY I WILL NEED TO DEFER THAT TO THE DIRECTOR. >>SO, I SHOULD ASK DIRECTOR CHAPELLE, AND IF THIS IS AN APPROPRIATE MATCH WE CAN TALK MORE? >>AND SINCE THIS IS A SLI, THAT INFORMATION WOULD BE REALLY IMPORTANT. COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>BECAUSE THIS SLI IS CONNECTED TO SEATTLE PROMISE, THE POPULATIONS THAT YOU ARE REFERRING TO WOULD HAVE TO BE, FOR EXAMPLE, STUDENTS THAT ARE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS WHO WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO SEATTLE PROMISE THROUGH THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEMS. IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO CREATE THAT CONNECTION THAT PERHAPS YOU ARE SEEKING. BUT I SEE THE REMARKS THAT YOU JUST MADE, COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD, IS THE POTENTIAL FOR THAT OF THEIR PROGRAM TO BE ADDRESSING MORE OF AN ADULT POPULATION. AND THE PROPOSAL THAT I AM SEEING FROM COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO IS SPECIFIC TO YOUTH WHO WOULD QUALIFY TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SEATTLE PROMISE PROGRAM AND REALLY MAKING SURE THAT IS THERE IS INTENTIONALITY AROUND CREATING ADDITIONAL ACCESS TO SCHOLARSHIP DOLLARS TO SUPPORT HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES TO BE ABLE TO PURSUE THE CAREER THAT THEY WANT THROUGH THE SCHOLARSHIPS. I AM NOT SURE THAT IT IS, THAT I AM SEEING THAT SYNC UP. >>I THINK YOU ARE PROBABLY RIGHT. IF THIS PROGRAM IS ONLY FOR — IF IT WOULD ONLY BE CONCEIVABLY FOR FOLKS THAT QUALIFY FOR SEATTLE PROMISE AND CANDIDATES ARE HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES, THIS WOULD NOT SYNC UP. THESE ARE OLDER FOLKS AND IN MANY INSTANCES ARE NOT HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES. THE COHORT IS 24 EMPLOYEES IN ENTRY-LEVEL POSITIONS WITHOUT POST SECONDARY DEGREES. >>IT SOUNDS LIKE WE HAVE DESCRIBED WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH AND IT MAY NOT FIT IN HERE BUT THANK YOU, FOR BRINGING THAT UP. IF THERE IS NO FURTHER COMMENTS, THIS IS ITEM 36. AND IT IS FOR THE WASHINGTON STATE OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIP. IF YOU WANT TO BECOME A SPONSOR, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. THANK YOU. LET’S MOVE ON TO 37. AND I AM GOING TO PROPOSE THAT WE GET THROUGH THE FIRE DEPARTMENT AND THEN THE OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL AND THEN CALL IT A MORNING. >>ITEM 37 IS THE LAST ITEM FROM DEEL. IT IS STATEMENTS OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING 10-A-1. AND IT IS A REQUEST THAT DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING REPORT ON DATA COLLECTION, DISAGGREGATION, AND USAGE AS PART OF THE LEVY AND LIMITATION PLAN, DEEL HAS COMMITTED TO DISAGGREGATING DATA TO CREATE EQUITY IN EDUCATION INVESTMENTS. WE CREATED A DATA WORKGROUP WITH THE GOAL OF CREATING — FOR PRESENTING THEM A GRAPHIC DATA FOR PROVIDERS BEING SERVED. THE RESULTS OF THIS DATA WORKGROUP SHOULD INFORM MUCH OF THE WORK REGARDING THE SLIDE. THIS DETAILS WHO DEEL PARTNERS WITH, HOW GROUPS ARE DESEGREGATED, THE DATA SOURCES AND CONSIDERATIONS FOR DETERMINING TARGET POPULATIONS AND OPPORTUNITY GAPS PRESENT IN AREAS WHERE THE CITY INVEST. THE CITY WOULD ALSO APPLY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TO SUPPORT STUDENTS THAT ARE EXPERIENCING THE LARGEST OPPORTUNITY APPS. THIS COMES FROM COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO. >>COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO, THANK YOU. IF YOU WILL AND LIGHTNESS ON YOUR EXPECTATIONS ONCE WE HAVE THIS DATA AND WHAT WE WILL BE DOING WITH IT. >>MY BACKGROUND BEFORE BEING HERE, I WAS WITH THE OFFICE OF MINORITY AFFAIRS AT U-DUB. WE LOOKED AT RESOURCE GROUPS THAT IMPACT THE BLACK AND BROWN USE. I APPRECIATE THAT THE LEVY IS FOCUSED ON –. THERE IS A DATA WORKGROUP WORKING TO REPORT THE DESEGREGATED DATA. THAT SLIDE WOULD BRING THIS TO A COUNCIL COMMITTEE. WE WOULD ALSO LOOK AT HOW DEEL MAKE SURE THAT THE LARGEST OPPORTUNITY GAPS ARE SERVED. ON A PERSONAL BASIS, MANY OF THE PROGRAMS AS WELL AS THE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AFFORDED TO ME HAVE ALLOWED ME TO GET TO WHERE I AM TODAY. SO MY PARTICULAR INTEREST HAS BEEN TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE EXPANDING OPPORTUNITIES AND THAT WE ARE TRACKING AND MEASURING WHAT IS GETTING DONE AND WE ARE ELEVATING THAT TO DISCUSSION AT THE COUNCIL LEVEL TO CONTINUE IMPROVING THE EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES FOR KIDS OF COLOR. BUT THANK YOU, FOR THE COMMENTS. COUNCIL MEMBER JUAREZ. >> MY COMMENTS ARE ON 36 AND 37 VERY BRIEFLY. I APPRECIATE WHAT COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO HAS DONE ON 36 AND TALK ABOUT THE CITY IN THE STATE WORKING TOGETHER. I 37 MY COMMENTS ARE THIS. I AM GLAD WE ARE STARTING TO SEE WHAT WE HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH SINCE I CAME TO OFFICE. AND THAT IS THE DISCONNECT BETWEEN SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND DEEL. WHAT ARE WE DOING AND WHAT ARE THEY DOING? ONE OF THE ISSUES HERE FOR ME IS THAT, HAVING THIS DATA, THIS IS SOMETHING WE HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR AS LONG AS I HAVE BEEN IN OFFICE AND CERTAINLY BEFORE THAT. WE ARE COLLECTING DATA AND USING THE DATA ON THESE GROUPS TO ACHIEVE AND CLOSE THE GAP. THEY ARE ALWAYS THE SAME GROUPS. IT IS THE NATIVE AMERICANS, REFUGEE, AND SO ON. I AM FULLY SUPPORTIVE OF THIS BECAUSE I AM HOPING WITH SLI NUMBER 36 AND 37, I HOPE THAT WE LOOK BETTER AT WORKING WITH DEEL ON DATA COLLECTION AND HOW WE START TARGETING TO MAKE STRATEGIC INVESTMENTS IN THOSE PARTICULAR GROUPS SO THAT WE SEE THESE YOUNG FOLKS, THESE CHILDREN GRADUATE AT HIGHER RATES THAN WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WITNESSIN FOR THE LAST TWO DECADES. THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO. >> ANY OTHER COMMENTS? COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT AS WE HAVE THIS CONVERSATION THAT DEEL IS NOT CURRENTLY DOING THIS WORK. YOU KNOW, I AM GOING TO SUPPORT THE STATEMENT OF LEGISLATIVE INTENT THAT I WANT TO MAKE REALLY CLEAR AND WE HAVE COMMUNICATED THIS TO THE OFFICE OF COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO THAT DEEL AND THE LEVY OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE HAVE BEEN DOING THIS WORK AS PART OF THE IMPLEMENTATION AND EVALUATION PLAN THAT IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO EVALUATE THE METRICS AND DELIVERABLES FOR THAT LEVY. I THINK THAT THE DIFFERENCE HERE IS THAT SLI FROM COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO IS ASKING IT TO BE DELIVERED TO CITY COUNCIL. MY COMMITTEE, AT THIS MOMENT, FOR PUBLIC DISCUSSION AND AND DAYLIGHTING. BUT I DO WANT TO JUST ACKNOWLEDGE THE WORK THAT DEEL HAS BEEN DOING IN THE SPACE AROUND MAKING SURE THAT IT IS TRACKING DATA APPROPRIATELY TO BE ABLE TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ARE LASER FOCUSED ON ADDRESSING THE OPPORTUNITY GAP FOR THE POPULATIONS THAT WE KNOW EXPERIENCE DISPROPORTIONATE IMPACTS OF OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. >>EXCELLENT. COUNCIL MEMBER HARRELL. >>I APPRECIATE THE COMMENTS FROM COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO AND COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. I AM SUPPORTING THIS. THE WORK IS BEING DONE BUT IT HAS BEEN MY OPINION, AT LEAST WHEN I WAS CHAIR OF THE COMMITTEE, THAT WE ARE TRACKING THE DATA BUT THE SEATTLE PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT SEEMS TO BE DOUBLING DOWN ON THIS AREA OF UNDER TREATMENT. PARTICULARLY ON PEOPLE OF COLOR AND UNDERACHIEVEMENT. THEY SEEM TO BE DOUBLING DOWN ON THE EFFORTS FROM THE RHETORIC THAT I AM READING. THE CITY UNDERSTANDS THAT AND THEY ARE TRYING TO BE GOOD PARTNERS. I HAVE NOT BEEN EVEN REMOTELY SATISFIED THAT THE DEPARTMENT IS REALLY, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING WITH SOME OF THE INVESTMENTS. TRACKING DATA IS FINE IF WE ARE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. BUT, I JUST HAVE ATTENDED SO MANY MEETINGS WHERE I WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THE OUTCOMES AND OUTPUTS THAT I DID NOT SEE WHAT WE WERE DOING WITH IT. I DID EVERYTHING THAT I THOUGHT I COULD TO AT LEAST ENCOURAGEMENT. I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT NOT FUNDING THEM AND NOT SUPPORTING THEM. I JUST CONTINUED TO WORRY ABOUT OUR EFFECTIVENESS AND WHAT WE ARE DOING IN OUR DEPARTMENT TO PARTNER WITH OR LEAD TO SOME OF THE WORK BEING DONE BY THE DISTRICT. IT IS BRINGING ATTENTION TO WHAT I THINK IS NOT THE STRONGEST WORK BEING DONE BY THE DEPARTMENT. AND I THINK WE CAN DO A LOT BETTER. >>OTHER COMMENTS? OKAY. THOSE THAT WANT TO ADD THEIR NAME TO SLI 37, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. THANK YOU. LET’S MOVE ON TO SEATTLE FIRE DEPARTMENT. IT IS NICE TO SEE YOU HERE. >> THANK YOU, CHAIR. THIS IS THE FIRE DEPARTMENT AND THE OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL THAT I WILL BE TALKING ABOUT. >>IS YOUR MICROPHONE ON GREG? >>I AM AT GREG DOS HERE TO TALK ABOUT THE FIRE DEPARTMENT AND THE OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL. THE FIRST PROPOSAL, WE ARE FIRST LOOKING AT COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION SEATTLE FIRE DEPARTMENT 1-A-1 AND THAT WOULD ADD $1.2 MILLION GENERAL FUND ONGOING IN 2020 TO SFD FOR A THIRD SEATTLE FIRE DEPARTMENT RECRUIT CLASS . THE 2020 PROPOSED AND ENDORSED BUDGETS HAVE A BASE LEVEL OF FUNDING FOR FIREFIGHTING CLASSES. THERE ARE TWO. EACH ONE HAS 30 RECRUITS IN IT. THIS BUDGET ACTION WOULD ADD A THIRD CLASS THAT WOULD HAVE 20 RECRUITS IN IT. IF THIS MOVES FORWARD THE FIRE DEPARTMENT HAS ASKED THAT IT WOULD BE MODIFIED INSTEAD OF HAVING A THIRD CLASS. THEY INSTEAD WOULD ADD 20 TWO EACH OF THE CLASSES THAT ARE ALREADY RUNNING. AND THIS IS BROUGHT BY COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>THANK YOU. WHEN ASKED IF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT PRESENTATION EARLIER THIS MONTH, THE CHIEF SAID THEY ARE ASKING FOR THREE CLASSES BUT THEY ARE HAPPY WITH WHAT THEY’VE GOT. BUT HE ALSO HIGHLIGHTED THE REALITY THAT 25% OF THE DEPARTMENT IS 53 YEARS OF AGE AND ELIGIBLE FOR RETIREMENT. 38% IS AT 50 YEARS OF AGE AND ELIGIBLE FOR RETIREMENT. THE CHIEF DID SAY THAT THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO TAKE THE NEW RECRUITS. 215 FIREFIGHTERS NEED TO BE ON DUTY EVERY DAY. CURRENTLY, BECAUSE OF THE NEED, THEY ARE MEETING THAT REQUIREMENT WITH OVERTIME. FOR THE LAST SIX RECRUIT CLASSES , THERE WERE 187 RECRUITS AND 147 HAVE SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED THE CLASS. THAT AVERAGES OUT TO ABOUT 23- 24 RECRUITS OUT OF EACH CLASS OF 30. IF WE CAN REALIZE EFFICIENCIES BY INCREASING THE CLASS SIZE I THINK THAT WOULD BE A POSITIVE MOVE FORWARD. THIS AD FOR ME WAS INSPIRED BY THE FACT THAT SEVERAL YEARS AGO, WE INCREASED THE BUSINESS LICENSE TAX FEE IN ORDER TO FUND ADDITIONAL POLICE OFFICERS BECAUSE WE ARE CURRENTLY IN A BIT OF A RECRUITMENT CRISIS ON THE SEATTLE POLICE DEPARTMENT SIDE OF THINGS. ALTHOUGH WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS. I FEEL THAT WE STILL SHOULD BE ALLOCATING THOSE FUNDS TOWARDS A PUBLIC SAFETY PURPOSE. AND, WE DO NOT HAVE THE SAME SORT OF RECRUITMENT CRISIS WITH THE SEATTLE FIRE DEPARTMENT THAT WE HAVE AT THE POLICE DEPARTMENT SIDE OF THINGS SO I THINK THAT THIS PROPOSAL WOULD BE IN KEEPING WITH OUR COMMITMENT WHEN PASSING THE INCREASE BUSINESS LICENSE FEE. OUR COMMITMENT TO USE THOSE DOLLARS TOWARDS A PUBLIC SAFETY OBJECTIVE. >>ALL RIGHT. ANY QUESTIONS? OR FURTHER COMMENTS? THOSE THAT WOULD LIKE TO ADD THEIR NAME TO THE ADDITION OF $1.2 MILLION GENERAL FUND ONGOING IN 2020 TO SFD FOR A THIRD SEATTLE FIRE DEPARTMENT RECRUIT CLASS. >>OKAY. LET’S MOVE ON. >>THE NEXT ONE IS COUNCIL BUDGET ACTION OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL 1-A-1. IT IS $150,000 GENERAL FUND IN 2020 ONGOING TO OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL TO ALLOW FOR CONTRACTING WITH OUTSIDE LEGAL COUNSEL AND IMPOSE A PROVISO. IT WOULD ALLOW $150,000 TO BE SET ASIDE FOR THE TIME. OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL. THERE ARE SIMILAR PROPOSALS IN THE OFFICE OF POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY AND THE POLICE COMMISSION. THIS MONEY WOULD BE SET ASIDE AND RESTRICTED BY PROVISO SUCH THAT THERE WAS AN INSTANT WHERE ONE OF THE ACCOUNTABILITY GROUPS COULD HIRE AN OUTSIDE ATTORNEY WHEN THERE IS A CONFLICT. THAT DID HAPPEN ONCE WITH THE CONSENT DECREE. THE PROVISO WOULD SAY THAT OF THE MONEY APPROPRIATED IN THE BUDGET, 150,000 IS APPROPRIATED FOR THE RETENTION OF OUTSIDE LEGAL COUNSEL AND THERE MUST BE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP THERE. AND, THAT IS ALL I HAVE. AND THAT IS SPONSORED BY COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ. >>COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ, DO YOU WANT TO ADD ANYTHING. >>THAT IS AN ADEQUATE DESCRIPTION. WE ARE STILL OUT OF COMPLIANCE WITH THE CONSENT DECREE WHERE IT PROVIDES OR RELATES TO THE PROVISIONS THAT WERE PASSED BY THIS COUNSEL IN MAY 2017. I ANTICIPATE THAT WE WILL CONTINUE TO BE UNDER SUPERVISION OF THE FEDERAL COURT AS IT RELATES TO THOSE COMPONENTS FOR THE NEXT 2-3 YEARS AND SO, THERE CAN BE A REASONABLE EXPECTATION THAT ADDITIONAL LEGAL BRIEFINGS AND MEMORANDUM AND REPRESENTATION IN COURT WILL BE NECESSARY. UNFORTUNATELY, THIS YEAR, WE HAVE SEEN A SITUATION WHERE THESE AGENCIES HAVE HAD A DIFFERING POSITION. BOTH LEGALLY AND OTHERWISE FROM THE CITY ATTORNEYS OFFICE. — THAT A CONFLICT OF INTEREST ARISES. THIS IS CONTEMPLATED BY THE ACCOUNTABILITY ORDINANCE. — IT IS A PROVISO OF $150,000 IF THEY DON’T USE ANY OF IT IT WILL GO BACK INTO THE GENERAL FUND. >>VERY GOOD. >>I REALLY WANT TO EXPRESS AND THANK COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ THE PROPOSAL FOR OUTSIDE COUNSEL. SHE AGREED TO PUT ME ON THE COMMITTEE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL. MY POINT IS THIS INDEPENDENT LEGAL ANALYSIS IS CRITICAL. IT CREATES TRUST, CONSISTENCY AND TRANSPARENCY. WE DO HAVE THE CONFLICT OF INTEREST. PEOPLE CAN AGREE TO DISAGREE. I THINK HAVING AN INSPECTOR GENERAL. IT IS CRUCIAL I WILL BE SUPPORTING THIS. I AM ALSO VERY APPRECIATIVE OF THE WORK THAT COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALEZ HAS DONE ON THIS. I AM WONDERING WHETHER OR NOT THIS COULD ALSO CONCEIVABLY SUPPORT THE COMMISSION REQUEST FOR THE L RPC TO HAVE SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS ADVISING THE COUNCILMEMBERS GIVEN THAT YOU ARE ANTICIPATING THE ATTORNEY- CLIENT PRIVILEGE RELATIONSHIP HERE AND THAT THAT WOULD CREATE A CONSISTENCY WITH THE EXPECTATIONS THAT THE NEGOTIATIONS ARE CONFIDENTIAL. I AM WONDERING WHETHER OR NOT THERE MIGHT BE A WAY TO ADDRESS THAT CONCERN PRIOR TO GOING INTO NEGOTIATIONS. >>I AM HAPPY TO ANSWER THAT. I SEE THAT AS MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE . SO THE LABOR RELATIONS POLICY COMMITTEE IS A CREATURE OF CITY ORDINANCE. IT INCLUDES MAYORAL REPRESENTATIVES AND CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS. I THINK IF THERE IS AN INTEREST, AND I THINK THERE IS, OF HAVING SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTISE TO FACILITATE THE CITY COUNCIL DELIBERATIONS ON THE LRPC AND OUR INDEPENDENT ANALYSIS OF THAT BODY OF WORK, THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WOULD BE APPROPRIATELY CONSIDERED WITHIN THE BUDGET OF THE LEGISLATIVE DEPARTMENT, TO PROVIDE US THOSE RESOURCES. BUT I REALLY WANT TO EMPHASIZE THAT THESE PROPOSALS FOR THE OIG AND CPC, THEY CAN USE THEM IN OTHER WAYS AS LONG AS THERE IS AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE THERE. I THINK THERE MIGHT BE A DIFFERENT PLACE FOR US TO ADDRESS THAT SPECIFIC NEED. >>GREAT. COUNCIL MEMBER HARRELL. >>I NEED TO GO DOWNSTAIRS AND PRESENT SOMETHING . I SUPPORT THE CONCEPT OF AND THE IDEA AND I THINK THAT THIS IS A GOOD METHOD TO GET INDEPENENT ADVICE ESPECIALLY WHEN NEEDED. I AM JUST WONDERING FROM A BUDGETARY STANDPOINT IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO GET THERE? CONSIDERING THIS IS AN AD OR A PROVISO, MORE TIMES THAN NOT, THERE MAY NOT BE A CONFLICT. WE COULD HAVE THE LAW DEPARTMENT RENDER LEGAL ADVICE. IF THIS IDEA HAD NOT COME FORWARD, THE LAW DEPARTMENT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE PARTY. SINCE WE ARE RELIEVING THEM OF WORK HE WOULD ORDINARILY DO, THEY WOULD JUST PROVISO $150,000 TO THE EXTENT THAT THEY NEED OUTSIDE LEGAL ADVICE. WE ARE NOT ADDING ANYTHING. IT IS JUST A PROVISO TO THE BUDGET. ANY OTHER COMMENTS OKAY. THOSE THAT WANT TO OTHER NAME AS A SPONSOR. THIS IS NUMBER 39. RAISE YOUR HAND. AND THAT INCLUDES COUNCIL MEMBER HARRELL. WE ONLY HAVE ONE MORE ITEM FOR THIS MORNING. AND THAT IS THE ADD 1.0 FULL TIME EQUIVELANT TO OIG TO CREATE AN OPERATIONS MANAGER POSITION . THIS IS ONE THAT WE HEARD FROM AMY ON. I UNDERSTAND THERE IS NO FINANCIAL AFTER. IT IS A JUST AN FTE ASKED. >>THAT IS RIGHT. THIS IS JUST A REQUEST FOR AN ADD 1.0 FULL TIME EQUIVELANT TO OIG TO CREATE AN OPERATIONS MANAGER POSITION. IT WAS CONTEMPLATED AS PART OF THE BUDGET DEVELOPMENT PHASE. — THE OFFICE HAS INDICATED THAT THEY WILL HAVE SALARY SAVINGS SUFFICIENT TO PAY FOR THIS POSITION NEXT YEAR. AND SO, THE ONLY THING THEY ASK OF THE COUNSEL AT THIS TIME IS THE ONE FTE. >>I THINK GREG COVERED IT REALLY WELL. THIS IS REVENUE NEUTRAL AND IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT FOR THEM TO GET THAT EXTRA BODY IN THERE AND MAINTAIN THEIR ONGOING INDEPENDENCE. >>THOSE THAT WANT TO ADD THEIR NAME AS A SPONSOR TO THIS, PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. OKAY. EXCELLENT. THANK YOU, FOR THAT. WE ARE NOW IN RECESS. WE WILL COME BACK AT 2:00. I THINK WE HAVE GOTTEN TWO THIRDS OF THE WAY THROUGH. WELL DONE. WE WILL SEE YOU BACK HERE AT 2:00.
