>> mr. chairman, members of the committee on page 12 of our report, we note that as of the writing of this report the puc could not estimate the total cost that would be encured from the subject claims, and that resulted from the february 26, 2013 water break. also, the estimated cost to repair aside from the claims to repair the broken and adjacent water mains is about $1 million and that will be paid for from existing previously appropriated funds from the board of supervisors in the 2013 budget. we consider this to be a policy decision for the board of supervisors because you would be waving your authority to approve each individual claim in excess of 25,000 in the future. >> if it becomes over four million they will be back in front of us. >> and you would have to
7:10 pm

department of environmental health action at fox plaza. and it is an expansion as well as a give back of some premises which is a net increase in space, but a fairly modest one taking us from.25,937 to 27,726 this is to accommodate the growth in the weights and measures areas that have occurred over the years. the suites to be leased are on the second, fourth, and 8th and ninth floors as well as storage spaces. the lease rate as negotiated here before you is just under 36 dollars per square foot per year, it is fixed for the five year term. so we find this to be advantageous rate for the city and locked in until november 30th of 2018. the lease also contains one five-year option for renewal, which could take us out to 2023, that is subject to
7:13 pm
negotiations at 95 percent of the fair market rent and that needs to return to the board of supervisors for approval. and so the only issue now is the five-year lease. as noted in the budget analyst report, there were two typographical errors and so i want to note those to you. they are on page one of the resolution nine 6. the date of november, 30th, should have been december 1, 2013. and on page 2, line 18, the number 27,846 square feet should have been 27,826 square feet and we concur with those changes and happy to answer any questions that you might have and i am also joined by dph if you have any program questions. >> colleagues any questions? >> okay, we will move to our budget analyst report, mr. rose? >> thanks.

7:22 pm
>> two weeks ago our office put together a quarterly report for the board of supervisors and public. i'll briefly walk through the report. at the highest level the report is a highest balance of $210 million. of that $210 million a one hundred and fourteen millions has been appropriated. we have a surplus of $96 million above and beyond previous appropriations which is a significant improvement in our last projection.
7:23 pm
this is a high level run down of the component of the ending balance and further detailed on our website. but you can see at the top of the page we ended with $220 million in balance in the general fund of which the mayor preoccupied 1 hundred and four millions in the with budget for $16 million balance. we have prominently where the economy has continued to beat our exceptions and that means better revenue. it is from baseline contributions and leaving $118 million of current year mixture expenses to the
7:24 pm
positive. the ears policies put in place do contribute an additional quarter of a million to the revenues. then you can see as i've indicated on the slide at the bottom of the page in approving the budget last year you have appropriated one-hundred hundred and $4 million to support the next year budget. the revenue in the current years supplementals will need to be replenished. so real quick just one way to think about it >> so we have a $15 million uptick where we were originally given a $220 million deficit
7:25 pm
it's 29 million years one and two so we can basically is a we're basically at the 94 level. >> looking at the current year news yeah. there is ongoing complications. we're talking about we'll approve budget as well and pay role is coming in and that's ongoing in nature and will improve next year's budget. so your market is correct in dividing it by 2 and bring the deficit down but this quest outlook is further improved because this revenue pictures as ongoing complications as well.
7:26 pm
the mayor's office is going to provide interpretation next week's >> i think we're far closer than $890 million. >> is there a range that we can think of in terms of of the proposed deficit for next year new. >> i realized it will be balanced in 9 days. >> but i think i can confirm what the controller said we've continue the policy of the $59 million applied across the
7:27 pm
next year's so you, think about the projected short that fall. i think the mayor is working diligently with our office to make sure we have a proposed budget for june 1st >> i know the mayor's office was going to provide an update but there's been a circumstance involved. >> the projected deficit is and that's when we have the 9 month report and the 6 month report but it's a moving target i realize because you're in the middle of balancing the budget but the range. >> maybe i'm not understanding your question. the projected deficit we're working toward those revenue updates are part of the solution
7:28 pm
i mean, the 5 year financial plan includes a package of how to deal with the shortfall each year so the increased revenue is one of the balanced approaches to clay close the total deficit number. are you looking for a new number? >> i typically around this time of the year there's a number. the joint report there's a projected figure for the next fiscal and we're looking at 5 years ahead in terms of the >> if i can briefly the supervisor alvarez is dwindle trying to get to our question
7:29 pm
but i don't know if the information is at the fingertips but i know she was working to get the figures today. absent having her availability today, she, provided it updates at the next work weeks weeks meeting. the big picture is you had a budget deficit of approximately $130 million. we have $58 million of ending balance from the last year and that's approximately $30 million in the budget year off the 1 and thirty. and when he look at the revenue mix of this $130 million we would expect that $30 million of this is go ongoing in nature.
7:30 pm
at a minnesota minimum this is going to bring that deficit down further so it's $30 million or less i know you're looking for a more high-level >> so that's my question. thank you >> okay. but as we're talking about on the revenue side you can see we've got good news for the local taxes we've seen growth in the local economy that has exceeded our exceptions unemployment has come down and the real estate market is good we're
