a new resolution and not solved by creating more programs that attempt to solve homelessness i'm delighted we've come together today on the second reading to create a department of homelessness to stop this isolation between the departments and to fully implement a housing first policy that prioritize wrap around services and transitioning the residents into permanently affordable housing we need housing that is affordable and assessable today i'm asking for support to put people before politics in a compassionate and pro-active solution rather than divisive and more failed policies we've been working to get the department of homelessness off the ground i think that is critical that we enable and impervious our new director who brings his years of experience if the homeless and
8:17 am
chp we all know cares deeply aboute. homelessness we need to give him an opportunity to do his job we all work - we all agreed to delay supervisor campos legislation so the gentleman can work with him needed amendments made to speak with one voice and not turn homelessness into a applies issue we reserve money for the department of homelessness to the tune of over $11 million and over $47 million in the following fiscal year and the gentleman has given little hire process for staff and we just opened under mayor ed lee's leadership a new navigation center in the civically e civic center and povpt and his in the
8:18 am
long run agency has a host of recommendations how we should address homelessness encampments we don't meet a 24th allow alu in the piece of the san francisco examiner to try to brej that but work togethertology solve homelessness by commenting pro-active policies today i'm introducing a resolution this is a separate subject in response to the public works solicitation for public comment on criminal background checks for so-called transportation like uber and lyft and other companies the cpuc has attempted to look at the safety risks and make sure the safety of the public is not commodity and the resolution i'm
8:19 am
introducing support that call to public safety under the cutters regulatory regime the city and county of san francisco regulates the traditional taxicab but the cpuc asserts its jurisdiction over the tmcs this an uneven two teetered system to the detriment and indeed to the detriment of the public welfare we know a broad consensus among law enforcement that fingertip basis background checks are the gold standard and the background checks used by uber and lyft has missed serious conviction we here tmc drivers shouldn't be open the road in many instance those crimes could be presented by adequate background checks that is indicative of a two
8:20 am
tiered regulatory between taxicabs and tmcs is any competitive and unfair and even though the regulations that we placed on taxi companies including maneuvered workers' compensation are truly common sense registrations but don't employ to tmcs the resolution i'm introducing supports putting tmcs on the same level the playing field with respect to background checks fingerprinting is the best method and the only way to hold tmcs like uber and lyft to the same standards as taxis the rest i submit. >> thank you supervisor peskin. >> supervisor wiener. >> supervisor yee. >> thank you, madam clerk
8:21 am
colleagues for the past several years grown toirdz of hearing about the care of trees so today i'll be submitting legislation to take back the trees i received calls on a daily basis if angry constituents that are meant by fines or to care for trees not previously responsible for everyone seems to love trees until thai they have to maintain them it is a camp for the university we have to agree on one thing we should take care of our street trees i want to acknowledge - the effort from friends of urban forest and supervisors that worked on creating an urban forestry plan for san francisco
8:22 am
while a number of tree measures are making their way to the november ballot i am being asked time and time again by constituents why can't this happen sooner why did it take an election to overturn the decisions to be changed at the board of supervisors today, i'm proposing a very simple ordinance to echo that very sentiment the city of san francisco should and low take back the responsibility of caring for strrz care for our street trees should be a basic city service during the recession the city reduces the funding in order to save on the critical services it was the right decision to make then but in retrofit it costs us we are now living through the negative consequences of tree
8:23 am
relinquishment program and in addition to the frustration of property owners we end up with a weakened urban forest with trees killed you think maintained and damage from poor care we can't reverse what is done but can take responsibility for what the public directed us to do what our taxpayers expects us to do i find it disappointing we're more and more riling on private citizens and every time we find ourselves with a difficult decision we're grown accustomed to have more taxed to cover what the city should be prioritizing we're not making it easy for working-class and middle-income families to stay in san francisco regardless on the ballot we can do this now if trees are a priority of constituents and the city let's
8:24 am
make it happen for now we can find solutions until a long term funding stream is determined the people have already spoken let's take back the trees so that's one item that i'm submitting and the second item i'm submitting i can't - i think we all agree that car break-ins and burglars are a problem and in my district the number one issue i hear at every community meanwhile e meeting we've held to hearings at the board of supervisors on this very topic there was many reports on auto break-ins in the city when was embarrassing featured in a national publication the in ability to curve property crimes and residents and tourists had enough for the past year working
8:25 am
with the community members local champions and sfpd short time and have long term strategies reduce property crime and invest in more resources to have prevention and the san francisco police department that's why i'm perplexed that an initiative ordinance was submitted for other november ballot to address property crimes through the units of the san francisco police department the residents of san francisco have all right spoken loud and clear will this issue we don't need to go to the ballot box to have a dedicated unit or to provide property crimes for focused attention the ballot proposal can't be amended or changed the proposals does not have time to be vetted or discussed this is a real disservice to the san franciscans i believe that having a
8:26 am
centralized units on property crimes with the san francisco police department is can be helpful but concerned with what that means to the local precincts i'm concerned about whether this will be the most efficient and effective medal method to address the property crimes nothing can be changed on this ballot we can push for something better here and now i'd like to propose a way for us to come together those are issues that what about made and board of supervisors not the ballot box ours protective process provides us with the opportunity to engage with stakeholders and community leaders and the san francisco police department to create something that can work the version i'm submit today is the
8:27 am
same version that was submitted to the department of the elections word for word this is a starting point to work on something we can all support i look forward to working with you to you think if any, to a sensible thoughtful solution the rest i submit. >> thank you supervisor avalos. >> thank you, colleagues. i have 3 i'll stand up 3 items for introduction today since march of 2011 i've been serving on the air quality management district income august of 2012 august 6, 2012 the chevron in richmond had a fire and blew up and sent 15 thousand people seeking medical care at local hospitals since that time the staff of the air district have been working on rules to limit emissions from
8:28 am
refineri refineries carbon and oxygen gunmen addicted i'm submitting a resolution calling for the mix of - we include the new medic caps not circling proposed caps are refining below what was allowed by the epa and make sure that they don't increase their emissions to within the epa allows so extending the caps we'll not see more manages of carbon monoxide that is vice chair an impact on climatic change and toxic emissions on the bay area residents health i have to measure supported by

8:30 am
introduced and voted on unanimously by the board of supervisors two years ago closely after sandy newtown massacre and we've also that year introduced a measure to devest from fossil fuel companies i've been focused on making sure that sf first follows open their promises in particular around fossil fuel divestment and staff has been a huge impediment to make sure we make that divestment really real and happening since 2015 we passed the fossil fuel divestment at the portfolio with $15 billion it is notice $20 billion that was the portfolio they've lost $500 million that was 1r689d in fossil fuel companies despite our resolution exceeded gave them with them to make
8:31 am
divestment a reality so for no improvement and just another resolution not worthwhile so i'll calling for a hearing to have sf first come and report to the board of supervisors with their progress has been so for and also think we're missing the mark we talk about devest from guns and gun control and how mustards and other manufacturers are inseparately intertwined with the military complex we're talking about doing gun control we have to have control of our military mustards as well did you know that colleagues office of citizens complaints is requesting we just want our arsenal by a trillion dollars not to housing and education
8:32 am

9:11 am
that the sidewalk inspection and repair program has issued over 30 thousand plus invoices and 2 thousand plus or 88 percent have been if the past year for the representatives that presented 3 were about invoiced we reevaluated the bills to the property owner one constituents didn't receive the invoice we will e-mail and advise them to pay by july 8th and four will be placed on payments insult will plans work with the property owner for an appropriate payment plan not on the property tax additional 9 were quality issues we'll have the inspector and contractor follow-up and correct in regards to 2179, 12 avenue requesting for the sidewalk inspection and repair original hearing ruling from the hearing officer he is
9:12 am
still disputing the damage that was caused by privately maintained tree on his property we investigate and research this matter in regards to coal mine street of the repair costs of 5 hundred plus placed on their property tax for the total including do 12 administrative fee under state highway and local public works code the fronting property owner is responsible for the repair and maintenance of the sidewalk fronting their property this is the second board of supervisors and still refusing board of supervisors vote no favor of adding the repair costs to the partitioning in the amount off 5 hundred plus.
9:13 am
>> can you can you talk a little bit about the quality of work and what is your procedure when the work is done it didn't net not up to standards do you go back? do you precipitate was the plan here. >> we do have a - our inspector does a walk with the contractor that is the first time the property repairs are looked at after that we don't go back to look it, it is kind of on the property owner to contact us if they're cracks or problems with the work that was done and . >> in some cases if thai may not have received a notice and the work gets done they receive a bill that is the first time or that they've been made aware how
9:14 am
does that work. >> well, we get our information if the assessors office if their address is not updated with the assessor then that's the address we send to so in terms of that we - excuse me - not only do we. >> judy can you identify the department. >> public works. >> okay san francisco public works. >> thanks. >> not only notify them through the tax assessors organized address but post into the building itself so they get two notifications. >> okay the other question i had was the issue around sidewalks and trees is a real problematic issue and how is that dealt with for
9:15 am
example, if it is a tree that is not necessarily located tree roots that are not on the property owners property but the sidewalks is damaged as a result of that tree it is still their responsibility to deal with the sidewalk damage? >> i believe that falls on the owner of the tree so if it is the neighboring unit that owns the tree that will be their responsibility to fix the damage. >> and what is your policy to deal with protecting residents. >> we have what we call the sidewalk nuisance assistance program it is we receive the invoice they can contact us protecting and they'll, mranls placed on a sorry planned on the property tax and paid over 5 years. >> okay. so for example, if
9:16 am
the case of someone that is elderly owns the property only gets searches and seizures and no income can barely take care of their property they pay their annual praushgs what we we talking about over the course of 5 years year potentially like an example this costs in education or additions to what they're paying in property tax. >> traditionally the average square footage or the cost is around maybe $500 to one thousand dollars that included that the 12 administrative fee and over time years that will amount to maybe like i would say $200 per property tax. >> per year.
9:17 am
>> for 5 years. >> yes. >> that's a lot more than potentially the $500 this is an additional couple of hundreds dollars that someone is protecting has to pay because over 5 years. >> a that's correct. >> it doesn't sounds like a good use hardship program for protecting that is a lot of extra money to pay i guessed i'm trying to understand what the why is it that someone low income has to pay more i get it you take out a loan but this is for hardship. >> and we also, we do try to work with the property owner and as christen alluded to 3 pertains that are going to pay in installment plan we can work
9:18 am
with the praurnz an insult plan with the administrative fee. >> no, if they'll pay installment plan not paying the administrative fee of 12 percent. >> but if they put it on the property tax over the course of 5 years have a pay an administrative fee. >> that's correct. >> what do you mean within a year time. >> keep that one a year not coming to the board of supervisors year after year. >> can you give me examples of type of persons we're talking about for example, the one woman that was here speaking on behalf of her mother that kind of situation i'm mostly concerned about. >> what we've done we'll actually talk to her and found out what she can pay off over the course of a year. >> the sidewalk in front of
9:19 am
her home. >> damaged by a tree or just damaged. >> i don't know. i i don't have the details of her particular property at this time. >> okay. and i think i'm going to led any colleagues ask a couple of questions and if i have some i'll come back to you. >> supervisor wiener. >> thank you to the department you might not know this off the top of your head terms in terms of the sidewalk damage you do know what percentage tree relayed. >> i don't have that detailed but i do know for this fiscal year and over the next two years we are working on sidewalk
9:20 am
mentioning tree areas so i'm not sure of the percentage but can found out in terms of sidewalk damage in san francisco pretty high percentage is tree related. >> uh-huh. >> is that your understanding too. >> that is the correct understanding correct. >> would there be any reason for f this sidewalk damage different from the general proportion anything unique about this this will be different than the general i think facts that the bulk of sidewalk damage is tree related. >> this year one of of our goals to actually look at a lot of tree related areas around the city and county of san francisco so do you believe that the unbelievab
9:21 am
of those. >> i'll have to do research. >> it seems like what you're saying it is probable those locations of damage the sidewalk are probable consistent with the general fact the bulk of the sidewalk damage is tree related any reason to think this is different. >> i will concluded this is feasible. >> okay so colleagues, we - i want to use this opportunity to plug and fix this problem it is absurd the property owners have to pay for the sidewalk and the trees and pay for a property that is not theirs they may not have
9:22 am
planted the trees any financial or physical ability to take care of the tree or fix the sidewalk and there expected to do so i agree with supervisor yee introduced legislation before to go basically repeal and i'm supportive of that the challenge the cost of the city taking that back is almost $20 million a year and so you know, i know we'll be having discussions in the board about the measure that supervisor mar and i have put forward with the friends of urban forest to do a ballot measure to take back the tree and tree related sidewalk damage and pay for it and create dedicated funding otherwise if we take back the trees and the sidewalk and damage we're going
9:23 am
to have to find $20 million in the budget i'll bet my lunch will that will not happen they don't do well, in the budget over and over again so i would love to vote against this i philanthropical low don't agree but taking it back and putting your money where your mouth is we put out the budget and none pushed for the $20 million for dpw inform allow them to take back the trees and sidewalk so far as i know but once again trees and sidewalks were not you know even on the list let alone in the upper portion of list let's fix this problem let's fix it with the funding mechanism that is dedicated so we can move on and not have to deal with
9:24 am
those hearings it is ridiculous thank you, supervisor wiener supervisor peskin. >> thank you madam president there are any number of different lean and taxed that come to the body one procedural question why these sidewalk tax bills have been broke down over a couple of weeks is there a reason for that? >> this is the second hearing on this in a relatively short period of time. >> the first one is a separate program a accelerated abatement program how we describe it operationally is this one is a reactive problem and the sidewalk repair podium which we're talking about is more of the pro-active program. >> in terms of in the police radio active program the city inspects the program when people
9:25 am
complain correct. >> seems like they can be consolidated in one hearing that neither here more there but 200 on the paper percentage wise like a lot more complainant than we normally see in those kinds of hearing i appreciate the city is aggressive about fixing our sidewalks i understand that there are issues relative to cost of homeowners but i get e get disturbed when i hear the gentleman had been trying to prove repeated he accomplished the repairs relative to a sewer vent that the city had minded him to accomplish i assume that is one of the list but 200 this
9:26 am
number coming off with with all due respect that would be great if thanks can be taken place we can separate the cheat from the charge of this is my comment. >> i have follow-up questions the concern were the individuals that said they've come here before and talked to someone and throughout the issue was revolved can you explain what happened in those particular incidents. >> unfortunately, i'm thinking this is one a miscommunication issue we've put in mitigation measures we have been keeping a
9:27 am
log of communications with the constituents and with public works so i'm almost 100 percent sure that won't you know 99 percent sure that will noltdz happen next year i binge this up since i've been on the board i've never don't recall someone saying they've come here before and the issue was not revolved that was definitely a surprise to me i think that ultimately any biggest concern is the communication and making sure that there is a clear communication you know with those property owners and there is also i guess a little bit better outreach especially for some of our low income property owners especially our senior population i know that
9:28 am
oftentimes with more elderly people they don't do their paperwork or manage their stuff and a lot of this can be confusing and stressful i really would like the department to a better job how they communicate when in their accept and expend notices i don't know if it means home visits or somehow connecting with those particular individuals it didn't come to a point they feel the needs to send a family member or show up at one of the hearings i'd like to see those issues resolve with a little bit more compassion for those particular individuals. >> and is there anything else want to add or anything else anyone has any questions regarding these questions. >> supervisor yee.
9:29 am
>> i'm just wondering why we are having hearings during the day when people have to take off from work really makes especially they're coming back twice but coming out once is a pickle and more difficult for in my mind in you're working in a low income job where you get fired because you want to come here to make their case is a real burden so almost feels like those are low income or have jobs they can't get off work to protest i'm wondering if any probability of shifting that you know when you have the hearings to be done in the evenings or
9:30 am
some other format. >> supervisor yee you make a really good point i think that what we should consider looking at is the possibility of we can check with the city attorney number one looking at who to hold some of the harley's in committee i'm not sure we can and potentially looking listing it for 5:30 and not 3:303 o'clock to sit here and wait and listen to all of what we're doing on the board when your you know taking off from work to come and testify and address our issue is unfortunate and i know we can do better than this thank you supervisor yee i'll work with the city attorney on what could be changed in order to
9:31 am
make this a better process. >> all right. with that, this hearing has been heard and is now filed and closed and would anyone like to make a proposal to amend the current resolution and adopt it. >> okay none. >> would like to amend. >> supervisor tang. >> i'll amendment based on what your public works states into the record and then vote on that recommended. >> okay. is there a second. >> seconded by - i saw supervisor peskin hand first sorry supervisor cowen with that, on the per diem item as
