minutes? >> if not, do i hear a motion to approve the minutes? >> i move. >> second. >> all in favor? >> aye. >> aye. >> motion or the minutes will approve. >> executive director's report? >> okay. just two things that i want to mention. the first is, i have mentioned one or twice we have a new auditer, and she decided that she would like to come by and see the commission in action and so we welcome her. >> welcome aboard. >> okay. >> and the only other thing that i want to highlight is, and this is back to sort of budget discussions. if you look at our revenue report, which is item four, it is low, and we have done some projection and we expect this year that we are only going to
5:02 pm
pull in about 75 percent of our anticipated revenue. the lobbyist, are filing the deadline for the year, is at the end of this week and there will be a lot of last minute filers and we actually expect to pull in more lobbyist fees than we anticipated and the number of campaign consultant fees is down, a lot of those folks will not reregister until they start working on the campaigns in the fall. but that will be after the start of the fiscal year and so there will be lower numbers there. and then we expected. and the campaign finance fines, and we have found our way down, which is a reduction in the revenue, but is good news which means that there is less violations occurring, so ultimately, i think that is a good thing, the other thing is, that is indicative of this is just about since we have been here we have had a backlog in assessing fines and waiver and
5:03 pm
we are completely caught up for the first time since i have been here and so we don't have a backlog fines from the years coming in any more. >> great. >> and congratulations. >> yeah. >> and mr. st. croix, so you are the 100,000 dollars projections you think that you could capture a quarter of tha. >> we are projecting 73 and change. >> and that 73 and change, is of the $100,000 that was to balance your budget, right? >> we are not a revenue, department, and so, the, anticipated revenue does not impact our budget, like i am forgetting the words, the departments that are... >> okay. >> revenue, and the departments which are revenue producers, we are not. >> and so that does not impact our budget, and just as a point of information, too, when we do our budget, revenue projections for next year, we will probably turn them down to that 77, 75
5:04 pm
change. >> what is the reason why those things are not being paid? we have it with the enforcement? >> under the city law, once a revenue is more than 70 days old, we refer it to the department of the revenue and they pursue this in court and what i will do is for example chris jackson was making payments for a while and then stopped and so that was referred over to those folks.
5:05 pm
the bdr can get a judgment in court but it is tough to enforce. >> any other questions or comments? >> thank you. >> public comment? >> public comment on the executive director's report? >> hearing none, we move on to items for future meetings, which we touched upon earlier in the meeting. commissioner keane do you want to propose something? >> what i would like to do is i would want to give a thought and madam chair and maybe put
5:06 pm
something in writing and transmit it to mr. st. croix, and would that be the way to do it? >> and then, it could be calendared for our next meeting, or there are a couple of procedural changes that i would like to suggest. but i don't want to just come out with something off of the top of my head. >> okay. any other commissioners? >> items for future meetings? >> okay. any public comment? on items that we have discussed? or that are not on the agenda? >> hearing none, i think that we can move to adjournment, do i hear a motion to adjourn the meeting? >> so moved. >> second. >> all in favor? >> aye. >> aye. >> the january, meeting of the san francisco ethics commission
