7:02 pm
folks and this lefrnz the mental health dollars as dph habit has a cash match of 21 percent. this agreement has essentially remained the same for 21 years. and the department of rehabilitation has this same agreement with 21 other chunts u counties. the voraciously services provided will be expensive services occupation skills training within the competitive work force. this allows the funds .8 fte coordinator to assist in planning and krorpg all the work within in agreement. this position willation act as a
7:03 pm
coordinator often or on a local level to provide support rewarding the training inform theeflts within the mental health system community buffalo health services. after all department of public health department supports the service program as it's demonstrated better treatment outcomes and demonstrated mental health symptoms with patients and he helped people find training and employment. those help boost the clients self-esteem and reduce relapse and recidivism rates. last year alone this program served over 2 hundred and 80 clients and almost 2 hundred of
7:04 pm
those clients found work. i'd like to call of darlene to speak on this agreement >> okay. i'm darlene i'm the district administrator for the department of rehabilitation we cover harry run and to counties. i don't really think there's much more that i can add except we value tour relationship with the city and county of san francisco department of public health. we're able to help hundreds of disabled folks through the city and county of san francisco. i'm you available for any questions you have

7:06 pm
guess you can say utilize and really get a lot out of the program through the vocal. i went on disability for stress and other things i went through as a eternal and it didn't effect me until years later. so i'm lucky enough to go through an agency citywide they're helping me to get back into the job pool. when it did they help me with resumes. they helped me to find a way in all united states community activities in my neighborhood focus on that. i'm close to getting a job thanks to citywide working on the hotdog cater but i think it
7:07 pm
should be taken a step forward. barbara garcia does a terrific job but when it comes down to make sure that everyone wants to get into a rehabilitation it should start at the s r os because they have support staff. what the support staff does i don't know. but i happen to live in one of the buildings. one of the agencies come into the s r os give support and let people know we're here north america in case you want to go back to work. a lot of folks don't go out and find the places so i think it would be helpful if the agencies
7:08 pm
would be allotted to into come into the city and any other members of the public wish to speak. seeing none, public comment is closed. we have a motion to move this forward. mr. clerk please call item 2 >> item 2 resolution of new flyers for the purchase of 50, 40 foot dealing hybrid buses through the cooperative material management definition in the amount not to exceed $38,000 plus and for a term not to exceed 6 years. >> thank you we have the gentleman here from our inspirations office. >> before the committee today is the agency contract allotted
7:09 pm
to purchase 50 hybrid buses. this is the second procurement responded by committee to help provide better service for san franciscans. the issues with the buses themselves the engines breaking down and the doors not opening. our buses are old and getting older every day. the breakdowns and delays are a part of the frustration. this procurement is another step in the right direction helping decades even if neglect they have a immediate effect on our transportation system. this procurement will be followed by the mta they're in the midst of replacing their
7:10 pm
entire fleet. so on behalf of the supervisors i'd be happy to have this board of supervisors approval >> mr. haley. >> thank you, mr. chairman and members of the committee. good morning i'll add a couple of things briefly. this is a key element of a 3 part program for us which means improving our system by first replacing our entire rubber fleet over a 5 year period and second by integrating a systematic and focus rehabilitation program with our help and support often both the number of buses and thirst basically to reindignant our maintenance program. it's important in the action before you today and in the
7:11 pm
recommendation it includes money both for the training of our staff but for the purpose of parts any and it's our goal to continue to improve our maintenance program and make sure we run the safest and most reliable fleet we can. we think that all the actions that we're putting together given where we are the fleet we have not only the most heavily used you're busy run a lot of hours in a demanding environment. we're pleaded to make this representations and we very much thank and support the committee and the hard work your staff has put in. so this is an important element of our program to improve the
7:12 pm
service by improving the reliability of the system and in particular the business u bus system while it sometimes doesn't get the attention of a rail system but it's the backbone of our system carrying 75 percent of our riders. its important we there our standards part of what we need to do is simply to say those buses are coming in brand new and we need to arrangeor maintenance and security programs to make sure we keep them that way and get the best use of life out of them. thank you for tuesday night to speak >> supervisor avalos. >> it's great to ride and see the new buses out in the city was it this spring or in the
7:13 pm
spring of 2012. >> the first 62 went ♪ the beginning of july the end of july >> but we had approved the contract for the 62 buses was it in 2013 or 2012. >> i'm sorry it was in the i understand of 2012. >> so we're now looking at those 50 is that what it is? i'm sorry. is that what is before us >> excuse me. the item has 50 so 62 plus 50 we'll have a one hundred and 12 new buses. >> so we'll see those in service at the end of this year. >> that's our schedule yes our plan. >> have the manufacturing already begun so - >> there are asking you that
7:14 pm
from the first group. accepted in service. there are new flyers begun the production of the second 50 and part of the our ability to both get the price and deliver the buses on a compacted schedule is that they had a hole in their production line we were able to take advantage of that we agreed by putting a fulfilling funding package together and they agreed to begin we told them we needed the buzz so they've begun the production of the buses and some of them are on the way. we have not accepted them but some of them are on the way to the bay area. and should be able to get the
7:15 pm
majority of the 50 buses at the end of the calendar year >> okay. so our resolution is needed to accept but manufacturing has already been done. so my other question and my staff informed me is the question of biofuels ease how we're able to use the bio fuel with those buses. in the one of our plans around greenhouse production what can you say about this to incorporate biofuels >> those engines are guaranteed by the manufacturer to run on b 20 which our entire sflooet is running on that right now. they'll do so improving without the growing plans having to
7:16 pm
retro he fit older engines. the next level what we're balancing is can we go beyond b 20 and we're testing b-1 hundred on non-revenue vehicles. i frankly don't know in this particular procurement is we've got the guarantee those are made for b 20. we want to work with you on the fleet going forward. memos of the technical intelligence in the development of a electric bus maybe being commercially available in the order of 5 years. so that would be something we're also weighing as part of the best technology to hit our clean air objective. so the short answer is b 20 is guaranteed by the engine
7:17 pm
manufacturer. the immunes were made to accommodate that we don't have to go through the growing pains with the adjustment of other buses. we'll stay on top of the technology and move forward with the test for the now and then revenue group and keep track of the non-electric as well >> great, thank you. >> supervisor mar. >> thank you, mr. hale i didn't and to the others for bringing this forward. i want to ask you about our zero missions and how clay close we are to that. the policy goes though how we're replacing our 79 fleet buses but i want to context of how the
7:18 pm
quicker purchasing that brings us to up 1 hundred and 12 gets you tell us to the zero plan >> we've looked at the fleet across the board in terms of it's performance and it's a fleet that averages over 12 years in general and the trillion fleet is much older. in some cases we have trolley cases. so part of the effort here is to systematically replace them. the hybrid are a quantum thank you. leap forward so anything we're able to retire a fleet by itself bus in the next couple of years we'll have - we have the 1
7:19 pm
hundred and 12 buses by the end of this year. we're have 60 foot trolley coaches and the first one b will be here in a year are that the most of the december two months we'll put in an rfp on the street to purchase thirty and 40 and 60 foot buses that will be hybrid buses. so the timing and sequencing of that we'll replace the dual. obviously the diesel replacement will be a net game in terms of
7:20 pm
emissions. >> i know i ride on the electric buses it boosts moral for the riders but i notice here under the fiscal impact the new vehicles are quicker to board and they have their training for staff to drive the new vehicles and the installation for wireless or wireless downloads so they're more efficient it fit into the better efficient system as well; is that right. >> it's an interesting observation maybe we haven't explained this but this is not our fathers bus, if you will. the level of diagnoses and sophistication both to the
7:21 pm
operator and to the mechanics those will have any number this is a rolling video system we will have on this series of buses we'll have all the interior cameras we have now and a plus two more cameras on the outside a much improved communication systems we've got positive feedback from the public. we have l e d lighting that's made a difference. we've got good friend of mine from the drivers and the public. we also made, you know, vienna the socialization process we've reached out to the disability community and we've got a model bus for accessibility in this regard as well.
7:22 pm
we're working on that but we're very pleased with what we've seen >> i'd like to be added as a co-sponsor i'm supportive. >> thank ou colleagues and mr. hal i didn't. mr. rose our report >> mr. chairman and members of the committee as supervisor moore has referenced on page 89 of our reported or report table 3 shows a budget with a new flier with the total of $38 million plus and that includes the training and spare parts etc. on page 10 of our report it is shown in table 34 including the associated costs of $6.1 million with the $38 million agreement are 44 million plus and again,
7:23 pm
we do recommend you approve this resolution >> colleagues, any questions for our budget analyst. okay seeing none, we'll open it up to public comment any comment. okay seeing none, public comment is closed. so i'd like to move approval >> we have a motion by supervisor mar and second by avalos we can do see without ox opposition. >> item 3 resolution approving the rental car lease agreement with the hesitating corporation with the d t g and fox rent a car. >> okay. thank you mr. lighter week. >> thank you. good morning and
7:24 pm
councilmembers. the item before you seeks board approval to modify the airports 5 leases with the rental companies and to experience the one 5 year option to extend the terms. the city currently rents with the dj or g e operations were awarded as a competitive bid. and they have a percentage rent equal to 10 percent of the cities revenues. it would continue to adjust the message annual to a amount equal to 8.5 percent. under the modification the terms of the rent would remain the
7:25 pm
same but allow for an early interpretation if the substantial renovation is necessary this would help us to set the rental rates to adjust for capital improvements for the facility. it includes the conclusion from the definition of gross revenues and add that the airport director would be allotted to have sub leasing requests to accommodate that agency >> i'd be happy to answer any questions. >> colleagues, any questions and just a quick one. i know it says 57 different rental companies but avis and budget are together and alamo
7:26 pm
and another are together. are they separate entities r or - >> their grouped under the parents companies some of them you mentioned are part of the d g t operations and the northern california those are groupings of various rental companies that come together. >> but they're still separate corporations that come together and i believe they're separate but they partner together when we the requests for the proposals in order to sort of have a stronger financial proposal but i could get the specifics on that stowaway. many of them could have merged but they operate at the airport
7:27 pm
as one parent's company >> another question that's not directly related to this. i know our city has goals of electric vehicle fleet and rental companies are one of the fleets that allow people to become for comfortable with the hybrids so we have incentives having hybrids and protecting electric vehicles >> we do the airport has part of the rental companies leased and there's incentives both to the companies and to the client who would rent the car they would get decreases it cuts down on some of the fees the more clean vehicles they succeed in renting. >> any further questions.
7:28 pm
okay. thank you mr. rose on your report >> yes. on page 16 as shown in table 4 the annoyed minimum annual guarantee and percentage rent known as base rent together with the space rent from the rental companies in the first 4 years of the exciting all the time totaled 3 hundred million plus. and then on page 18 of our report we note it over the 5 year extension which is included the 5 exciting rental car leases the total rent would be a minimum of 2 hundred million plus we recommend you approve
7:29 pm
this resolution >> okay. mr. rose any questions seeing none, we'll move to public comment. >> is there anyone from the public that would like to speak? >> seeing none. mr. clerk call item 4 >> to the exhale of theburger king for a term of 10 years with the minimum annual guarantee of $72,722. >> thank you. we have the lady bank. >> kaikt i didn't wagner with the airport. it seeks modification of a lease doing business as a burger king
7:30 pm
franchise. the original lease was proofed in october and had a 10 year term with a 2 year extension. subsequentially the airport did a renovation requiring the burger king to close temporarily. it would approve a bigger space for the burger king franchise in the bordering area. those renovation will be sustained and it would allow the tenant to be reimbursed the tenant would pay a
