5:07 am
report the directors report. >> good morning commissioners so i guess the big news this week the budget the mayor released his budget and submitted to the board of
5:08 am
supervisors and a lot of great things for the department of aging & adult services so i want to quickly go over those items and unfortunately, i'm reading that off any phone small prinlt you know that you approved a budget we submitting to the mayor's office in february and has items that basically no cuts in the addition with positions for adult prospective services and other stray positions but not a lot of extra things in the budget lying enhancements for community services we were hoping that there will be a way to get those into our budget as well and the mayor certainly wanted to get some of those in one of the things the first thing i think that the community members have been asking for on our 5 year plan to include this this did portfolio that is the
5:09 am
senior disabilities program he serve that has gotten transaction on the east coast i think and it is kind of a work subsidy program for older adults in our says adult disabilities (2) 005-0000 a great start for us to wade into that world and try a pilot there so that's exciting and case management enhancements people in the community you've heard the case management in dos has been kind of not that funding has not kept up with the need for increases in salaries and the mayor recognized this is a program that has really not kept up even at the level of the some of the programs kept us u up to the case management programs have continued to lose staff and a
5:10 am
decrease in quality the challenge of hiring people that you are bilingual has been greater than in the past so when we look at the workers we have in internally in department of aging & adult services or in the city and the salaries in the community obviously don't keep up near where they should so people leave etc. so the mayor has put one hundred and 75 thousand so we can start the process of raising the salaries and hopefully with worker retention in the case management program the conservatory the department of health and the department of aging & adult services has started thinking how to streamline the conservatorship is he people are significantly in emergency and needs
5:11 am
conservativelyship and people are living in the community and need the corn certificateship services we're trying to make that happy with dpw and others so people slipping through the crack on the street and the recidivism pattern before and after within between the street and facilities we'll help them better there is positions in there and also upgrades for the current staff to be at the same level of the adult prospective services we're looking a clarification change there we also looking at a supported home pilot we're calling 2 that is something that supervisor eric mar and a number of advocates in the community and our
5:12 am
community-based providers are trying out behaving because we know there is a need for in-home care for people that don't qualify for the - so there's obviously people with a lot of money can a pay for their own home care but the middle-income or others in san francisco that can't afford it the budget and the legislative 234569 estimated first year thousand people to stay at home safely we're try a polite from the mayor's office put one million dollar in annually for the next two years to try this out and we're going to have some issues around prioritization who gets to serve but really to see if we can change some of the outcomes for people if they get
5:13 am
that home care they'll go to a hospital fewer times and end up in nursing services and that's exciting to get to try that out for the different populations the dignity fund the mayor's office has put a plug in for the dignity fund at a place for $6 million in year two which is 2016-2017 and year one prelims we need to staff up a little bit in the dignity fund passes we're lucky positions and consultant to get off the ground the mayor's office put in $6 million for 2017-2018 and the dignity fund legislation was introduced by supervisor cowen last week at 2 percent the property that will
5:14 am
be more library $33 million in the firefighter to malia cohen's office the dignity fund coalition and i will be meeting to figure out a way to get closer so the mayor's office and the coalition and the board are more in agreement about startup amounts and nutrition so one of the things you may remember that last year the board of supervisors had quite a bit of money into nutrition one time only money and generally speaking when the board does things one time the mayor didn't pickup and maybe not the way it was intended and in this case the mayor really wanted to put money into nutrition so $1.2 million - that's about
5:15 am
half; right? so the mayor put in 1. $2 million of the 2. $4.01 time back into his budget and so that maintenance a lot of the services we started this year and enhanced this year and in addition to that, the mayor has put in an ad back for the one time only housing subsidy amount we got last year that was $700,050,000 so that again was a one time add back with the board and the mayor elected to backfill that completely it is now in the baseline budget and i think just to give you detail about the nutrition so what that $1.2 million that the mayor has elected to backfill 9 lunch program with the chance
5:16 am
program the routine i restaurant voucher program and home delivered groceries and home delivered meals yeah. those 3 things so it will help because we won't have to cut back on the services but not getting us quite there i guess the last thing i wanted to mention the scattered site housing contract that was with with the department of health will be moving to the department of aging & adult services and the contract is now with the nonprofit provider called brilliant corners it is great we'll have if that and actually sit in the community fund and it is something that the community living fund is able to assess for a long time it is great so it seems like it is in effect i think that about it in terms
5:17 am
of the enhancements from the mayor as you may know now the board has the budget and the board will be looking at other things we want to commend fund and maybe things they don't want to fund and asking us for a lot of details for the positions we got into the budget and president some justification on those but looking at our vacant and all those things obviously they have interests in they're own district and interests in terms of the program oh, one other thing i didn't i neglected to mention the mayor put in a second deputy director for our department i'm personally excited but it is become really grown a lot a lot of work for one permanent to analyze so that's in our budget as well >> i think - the only thing i want to say two things one i was at the california's association
5:18 am
of agencies our aging one of the things they're talking about this year is trying to enhance kind of the face of angling in california and there - we're going to be doing a media campaign california wide to put a positive face on angling and everywhere i go i'm conscious and i'm sure you are as well we see so many negative images of aging how bad it is to get odd old and great reasons we should be paying attention to aging this year a number of us that are aging in this country and going to need services and going to have to support each i'm excited we're b be working and actually i'll be chairing the education committee it will be interesting to see what other people's takes and promoting the
5:19 am
best practices if every community in california and get that out into the public and have a much stronger public presence i guess so that's exciting and then the last thing i wanted to mention on june 8th and i think all of you gotten an invitation on june 8th we'll be celebrating world elderly abuse day in san francisco and our celebration will be at the herbst theater it starts at 4 and goes to 7 and paul henderson and from the mayor's office will be the master of the ceremonies and he's running for supreme court judge and very entertaining 0 it should be fun and then dave jones commissioner will be coming to speak in the beginning and talking about
5:20 am
elderly abuse awareness i believe that still will be lit up in purple in awareness of elder abuse there is a lot going on and the senior at the adult and protective serves will be there and people will come back by thank you that concludes my report. thank you. >> any questions. >> yes. >> wait. >> go ahead. >> commissioner sims. >> thank you the additional budget that was provided by the mayor's office this is one time only or ongoing is that will be ongoing funding. >> those are baseline items. >> okay. >> concerning the dignity fund do we have 6 supervisors. >> signed in? >> you know i'm actually not sure about that part this is a
5:21 am
question for the dignity fund coalition i believe. >> so from the dignity fund passed the $32 million will be affected; right? in cases that it didn't pass the mayor will put in the one million dollars. >> well, no i think what will happen the mayor's office and the coalition and the board are all working together to find a way to come to agreement about the legislation ultimately looks like we don't know it would be that it goes in that way and a different way. >> the 2 percent is in the subsidy. >> correct. >> okay commissioners did you have questions. >> anyone else? >> yeah. >> sherren you were talking about it in home support for the
5:22 am
middle-income and one million dollars for two years. >> it is one million dollars for each of two years. >> for each of two years. >> right. >> a pilot project. >> right. >> what's the plan for dos to get this program off the ground that's a great question we didn't found out until this week that will be in the mayor's office budget we have to look at setting it up to study it so we need to know the outcomes we will have what we'll do a subsidy program so is it not going to be you know we did try a piloted for people to qualify for in-home care services but had to pay something we didn't need to study is that will be a subsidy important people who
5:23 am
either don't qualify or want to pay for one we'll bring back the stakeholder that kind of helped to put this together and work with the community living fund probably a mechanism we have in place and decide how to prioritize people that is hard we'll not have enough money for 14 thousand people and don't know this is quite the right number we can probably serve to 50 people in a year and so we have to think carefully how what populations we want to look at it and learn and it will be something that will start as soon as we know that is getting to the budget and how much money we'll start those discussions soon. >> it's right around the corner. >> i'm aware we need to get going on that.
5:24 am
>> thank you. >> any other questions commissioners you had a question from - >> come forward. >> good morning commissioner president james and commissioners congratulations director ma fasten and welcome i appreciate this egypt for the recreation of the one time board of supervisors funding for your information commissioners when it came to that one time funding cuts we were notified in the senior center we'll be kit $77,000 that notification of cuts and again, we're grateful

5:41 am
of service and strengthening existing programs and improving awareness and serving adult disabilities and in coalition with other departments and a presentation for the middle-income study which the director's report contained as well i have nothing to add a discussion on meetings with supervisors and i believe that most of those meetings have occurred in the month of may we'll get a report back at the next meeting thursday june 9th and that's about it from my report any questions. >> you mentioned you study and recommend 5 areas for senior services okay name those 5 areas.
5:42 am
>> i named them but i'll go over them more slowly the first expanding new areas of services this is for seniors and adult disabilities the second is strengthening the existing programs, the third is improving awareness and messaging of task services the figure out serve adult disabilities more effectively and the first time is collaboration with other departments. >> would you put a dollar amount for those. >> no we have not this is mark farrell an assessment no budget analysis. >> you'll follow-up with those improvements. >> that's on the directors plate. >> any other questions. >> well we'd like to wait for the directors answer. >> thank you so sir, is really reporting on
5:43 am
the long term kr0r7bd council so he basically heard the same presentation on the needs assessment in the area plan the specifically needs ascertainment we've heard from you commissioner ow so some of the same recommendations when rose and i did the presentation is what he's referring to we'll devolve into those areas just pointing out things that are important for the department as we move forward and you know one of the things we hope to do is that in the future we will be able to attach dollars signs to various recommendations when we do the needs assessments and hopefully, we'll look at gaps we're not there yet but those are the recommendations he had when i was thinking about when i wanted to pay attention to going forward. >> imagine.
5:44 am
>> staff report. >> well, i guess you can judge. >> we're all here. >> but what do you expect we have a big rally a senior rally and in sacramento thousands of seniors and a model and chant was seniors count and they were here they'll have you all chanting that when you get a huge group of gray haired voter they are their associates saying seniors count they pay attention in sacramento so that's one good thing one thing that was nutrition georgia again was part of it throughout the last year when we
5:45 am
had different representatives from state programs and departments talk to us come out nutrition was right up there on the top of their concerns and it came out ♪ good the concerns about nutrition and programming for nutrition and amongst other things we'll keep the seniors healthy and independent what was covering all of this was that all over the state including us seen the percentage of seniors in the population has been increasing every year and will continue to increase in the future and that must be considered in the meantime when you look at the budget programs for seniors
5:46 am
have been frozen and cut back and a few have been cut out so that financial backing is going down while the number of seniors is increasing so that is something we need to consider as we look at things, of course, if we keep on increasing we might take over that was an interesting program and one thing that change you know working with the staff the state staff for the commission has been good i've enjoyed it their bright and kevin about us they organ well and follow-up on what they say but what i saw at that meeting the respective they have from the members of the government from people from
5:47 am
different businesses and programs that were there you can, see they'll respective them and worked with them we're asking their advice and wanted to go together with them so what it means is if we're trying to develop a program to get something through we have a fantastic resource in the staff from the state commission their generous and they care they really care about what we do and knowledgeable so seeing them interacting at the rally and let me see what a fantastic right away that concluded my report. >> thank you
5:48 am
case. >> good morning, commissioners valerie i'm a board member of case and also the director of the senior center this time of year is busy for case our budget and advisory committee work hard to make sure the mayor and board of supervisors are aware of our podium and at the same time, we're supporting the budgetus coalition podium as well as different security task force to today is news from director mcfadden what guarantee good news not over until the final budget is approved and continuing to meet with the board of supervisors which meetings have been set up during the senior rally we had in conjunction with the senior disabilities folks we
5:49 am
hand-carried over 2 thousand pot cards to respective supervisors and mayor they're very aware of what we're asking for we also want to invite you all we're excited one of our member agencies institute on angling has offered a continuing ed course at the next membership meeting i have handouts flyers i didn't get them out but one of the things that are happening at the senior centers the phenomena of bowling and it is something that we've seen over the years but it has become more acute and so we started looking for somebody to help us begin the conversation how to handle to preserve the safe and friendly environmentalist for everyone but handle those kind of
5:50 am
individuals challenging to the senior centers we don't say a mental health component we may need to look at that in the future we 79 the senior center services is to be available for all people at times the acuteness is beyond our staffing level abilities so this presentation and course that patrick from the harbor called how to identify and respond to challenging and bullying behaviors we're offering continuing ed for many progressives if you want i'll leave the flyers and free to our members and if our members are bringing other folks we'll to get a sense how many more foams o people might be there we'll be prepared we're excited it is the beginning of the conversation i'm getting more calls from my
5:51 am
colleagues from the same issues and some of the people we're having problems with radio bouncing around from one senior center to another and we will to do the right thing but know what your limits are and other maybe partners can do to help us what that that's the beginning and i think that our next membership meeting is june 13th at the groceries center and we're going to get started right on time so the people that are asking for continuing ed can meet their requirements but it operationally is an interesting session. >> any questions. >> yes. >> emily. >> yes. >> i'm just wondering where you folks nonprofit organizations have been tapping
5:52 am
into the management services by the public health department and started to come you know once a week or month whatever and educate our staff also. >> we're looking at that commissioner i think that traditionally the older adult individual is not open too much to going to clinics but we have a referral to the mental health services amend as you may know older adults have the right to fail and we make appropriate referrals refuse the services and go to the next center we're looking at training so we can handle situations more carefully and more mind fully. >> i'm just saying that you know has been come to your center center. >> we've tried if that and
5:53 am
probably have to do a more official invite and get the higher-ups to support that but the department of health didn't send their professionals out to our centers we'll look at that. >> it will be for the seniors it will be a non-threatening environment and maybe someone from the department of health. >> we'll look at that thank you. >> next this is we have some public comment but item t is there any general public comment at this time? hearing none, old business >> none new business okay. all i's require a vote item a supervise
5:54 am
transfer of ownership the staff is melissa can i have a motion to discuss. >> so moved and seconded. >> good morning commissioner president james and director mcfadden i'm the acting deputy director at the department of aging & adult services so this is referring to the rosa parks senior center and the human services agency will be taking over ownership of the rosa parks senior center in the next few months the final date is yet to be determined the property was offered to the city as a cost off $1 currently the office on the aging offers programs at the rosa parks senior self-center this acquisition allows the facilities are operating appropriately at the site no rent as we will the site will be
5:55 am
owned - we'll provide maintenance and janitorial services this has an inadequate but will be taken care of a sewer line it is needing work so the developer will be fixing that at no cost to us and so this problem has resulted in the assembly bathrooms for the clients for the clients using staff bathrooms this proposes sanctuary conditions and so that's a big issue in the center that will be corrected that the acquisition when the site is completed an additional one and 50 seniors in the complex of the rosa parks senior are supervise will serve three hundred clients at the rosa
5:56 am
parks center and we request your support in the acquisition of this property. >> are there any questions. >> what's the location. >> on the - >> commissioner ow. >> is it close to market street. >> it is golden gate and between golden gate and turk. >> so the senior housing; right? >> yes. currently and doubling they're building angle additional tower. >> how large is the tower going to be. >> an additional one hundred and 50 seniors we're just acquiring the property that did senior center is on. >> what about a new tower is it going to be the dos going to take over the tower. >> no, just the senior center
5:57 am
and that building. >> thank you. >> okay. >> okay commissioners commissioner sims. >> is there a precedent for this has the city done this in the past. >> i don't know. >> the city has done this with certain buildings i think that the impetus the mayor's office of housing was really looking to make sure that the senior center is in good hands and the immigrant it oversees is the department it understand the adult disabilities as you may know the rental assistance demonstration project where new developers or new development management organizations are taking over the management of senior housing and not just senior housing but the senior sites that the authority has run
5:58 am
previously this is kind of an unusual situation in this case the tenderloin development corporation don't care over the housing and will manage the housing and it is attached as commissioner ow mentioned there is one tower there already and another tower of senior housing but the senior center is in the middle they don't have the expertise to run senior and dos has a nonprofit provider right now the orientation is bayview hunters point senior services they run the western edition senior center as well. >> bayview so is it make sense to oversee those services but we don't have the expertise to manage the building itself, however, human services agency
5:59 am
does because human services agency he manage a lot of those and has a history it make sense to that. >> is there a budget attached to this. >> so we're already bayview is operating the senior center and the main things will be an increase in janitorial services and purchase a sink and those sinks at all fall within the contingency so no additional request requests to modify the budget in any way. >> go ahead commissioner. >> that bother me those are front loaded expenses that you anticipate by the long term cost of maintaining the building there must be an anticipated cost for the maintenance of this
6:00 am
facility roofs and walls and paint and floor you know repair and replacement over time a burden cost somebody has to pay that. >> john correct me if i am wrong that falls into the facilities for the human services agency. >> ; correct? >> yeah. >> so social service is that social services run out of by bayview hunters point or will we provide associate or social services there separate. >> they currently operate at the bayview and encouraging operating the senior center. >> are we serving meals how many people are we serving. >> yes. we are serving measles and do you know how many on an
6:01 am
average daily and 50 people. >> the report indicates up to three hundred in captivity. >> right? >> are anticipated. >> and what the abilities to increase that capacity are we increahe capacity or maintaining the capacity. >> one of the things that they haven't tried to do they didn't know they've not tried to increase the capacity new we know that is the plan moving forward the senior center will be continuing to operate now they can work on increasing the capacity. >> so i wanted to separate this when you increase the capacity will that funding go to bayview hunters point to increase the capacity or will be a separate budget for the department to handle. >> so when we do any of the
6:02 am
senior centers or active seminars we contract with the you know there are no a procurement process and if a mr. starr organization we negotiate that them how many people they'll serve and what the dollars look like i believe right now we're in the middle of contract with them so if they were to minded toe increase we'll go through the rfp process and nail propose that and someone will propose that and see who wins the contract and negotiate about the number of people they're serving right now they have in the budget whatever they have we can't give them more money if they serve more people but certainly proposed that or other organization when we go out to rfp again i don't know when the contract ended we're in mid-contract. >> we're in the middle of a

chamber this morning for being part of this very important city process thank you, everyone >> (clapping.) >>
6:42 am
>> i want to thank our city
6:43 am
administrator and her public works director for being here with the dpw street paving crew. also, our neighborhood services as well. derek, thank you for being here this morning. we are here to go to work. i know it's a political year and everybody's talking about some big election that were going to have but, i think the real story is about the mostly the men today get where are the women? we have to deal with that get there we go. where are your hardhats? okay. well, i was there is a men and women. today is mostly men that are out here. at our neighborhood corridor and this is of coarse, one in many many neighborhoods across the city where we get a chance because our city is economically strong and thanks to our capital program that our city administrator is involved in. thanks to their mind or from a public works that they want to be out here paving all of our streets. you know, one of the great people that in a city that
6:44 am
is increasingly become very expensive for people is our own streets. if our streets can be paid everybody can use them whether you are a senior, whether you are a young person, whether a bicycle rider. when you take a ride share with you guide drive your own vehicle back and forth, everyone uses our streets. that's a great equalizer and when we fix it up than every single neighborhood of the city benefits from this. this is sometimes what we were for to as shared prosperity of the city. in years past, when we did not have the resources in our capital program suffered, then our parks and our streets suffered first. i want to say that we just concluded next two years our capital program over four lap $411 million from our capital
6:45 am
planning and he and our whole bunch of smart numbers people get in there and they crunch numbers and they say, hey, look, if we spend this amount than that apartment late dpw can say, you can get to that magic seven. is every window with the magic 70 is? this a pci index that engineers know about. i plot the others and the engineer department and they will tell you that's how street levels are graded in cities like san francisco. it's what they call a pci index. for over 30 years, we got close to this number 70 and now it's within eyesight. i think if we are disciplined in making sure that our capital money sources are spent in paving all of our streets were to get to this magic number 70, which is something we've not a published in over 30 years of investment. that every year it's been the streets come do we want to do
6:46 am
that or do we want to do trees. people voted for the trees did that was parks and people voted for parks. that was health institutions and people voted for the health institutions. so we never got a story out there about how streets are so important to us and how maintaining them is a great service to every single neighborhood in the syndicate were finally able to do that and this is important and it's part of our 10 year capital plan, but were funding the next two years at $411 million. that's a significant amount. i know that those that are involved in our capital planning have something to smile about because it's not just streets good streets is one of the key examples. that's why we are here today. we are going to do more of the streets for the benefit of all of our neighborhoods,, all across the city. over the next two years. but in addition to streets, infrastructure is about all the other aspects assets that we have. for example, they dpw horizon particularly for engineers is outrageous. third street grades. christmas
6:47 am
creek bridge. they have to be maintained and put in a good state repair. guess what? the largest population growth is happening in the southern part of our city and were needing to grant across those bridges a lot. those are bridges that are constantly used for mission bay, for all of the development in the dogpatch and in the hunters point area. there also going to be of course, a ballpark and eventually [inaudible]. so, that's going to happen in the next couple of years. those bridges will get repaired. in addition to that, there is something that we have not talked about in public a lot. something a little more hidden in our-underneath our streets, but something i've been dedicated to discussing with the port about and that's the infrastructure called rc wall. that seawall is goes all the way from the fisherman's wharf area all the way down to
6:48 am
the ballpark and onto your 50. that seawall is absolutely critical for everything that is from the water to the peers to the embarcadero roadway. if we don't keep that seawall up in good shape, the water eventually, will you road all the infrastructure underneath, which includes our wastewater, unclean water, all of the utilities, will all be subject to incredible incredible cost is not danger, in of course, the majority of our ports assets we lie on the seawall. it's about time we started talking about it because the seawall is over 100 years old and we have not made any very
6:49 am
significant investments in the seawall. that's another part of our infrastructure. there's another part of our infrastructure that we don't talk about until there's flooding in the city. that is places like telegraph hill. you know, that very steep hill where i kind of look up and i get nervous and all those condominiums up on top and how steep that hillside and every year, every two years or three years, when the heavy rains come, you see a little bit of a you rose and i called the city engineer or all call these private companies that dpw has oncology what's going on. they say, well, the earth is moving. it's sliding. we got to reinforce those cliff areas around the telegraph hill. otherwise, thousands of homes will be in jeopardy. this is all part of infrastructure, all part of capital planning. when we do capital planning at 10 year stretches, we want to take care of infrastructure like
6:50 am
these and we do it in a very land way. we do it in the way it does not shop the general fund every two years, and when we do this planning everything, all of our assets get touched. they get treated. in one year it'll be these kinds of things like our streets and our hillsides and are bridges,. another year it will be our parks. another year it will be our cultural institutions that need to get a touch. you talk about parks. again, that's an asset that everybody enjoys. particularly, if you're a senior or families with children, more and more of our parks are being used with to keep them clean. keep these assets not only clean but expanded, we-updated refreshed, and this is how i think our city is so successful with our residents. so, i want to say today, thank you dw for being out here. particularly, the mostly men and some women that are going to be picking this street the right way and it's going to last 50 years, right?
6:51 am
not to come up here for another 50 years. so when we do this, we do it right. yes. we've got to tell everybody when we do the streets, that the tell all the utilities were coming in because i don't than breaking into the street saying you do not tell us about it we notify everywhere. we have the residence and of course the residence of the happiest. they get to come out and drive on some smooth streets. they don't have to tell me at least this block, will be donated stories about how their transmissions not ruined and had to buy new tires. but we need this kind of treatment to get to this pci index we been longing for, where the grading of our streets by the federal highway administration, who funds part of this, by the state, will say that let's keep this kind of high-level streets smoothness in our capacity, and every neighborhood will benefit from it and all the neighborhoods will be better as a result. it
6:52 am
begins with good planning. we've got all the people that will execute all this. and the more you were out here in the neighborhoods of getting things done or fixing our streets, or fixing on herschel corridor, again, with public works leadership, were putting additional pit stops were people need them, they don't need them in this neighborhood, but in other neighborhoods, were going to keep a good relationship with our neighbors and i hope that the neighbors will want us to finish this quickly and go on to the next streets. but, thank you to the men and women of pablo's for your dedication,. keep working hard to get this stuff done and then go on to the next week. would you do all employee. by the way, the next two years of infrastructure work that i just talked about over 3400 jobs
6:53 am
