12:21 pm
what we need. peace! i believe that was our last speak. public comment is closed. supervisor? >> thank you. chair. it soundses like this will be moving to full board today. tell do it without my vote that may or may not be permanent there may be further conversations about this. you know the backgrounds is not like a foreground is the contest with the 2 sort of proposals. for things people are calling affordable housing. i said some of these things the last time we considered it. there is a fundamental thing about afford the mayor's effort and effort of carpenters and housing advocates called
12:22 pm
affordable homes now. there is a truth i think is real. which i think it will be good and probably necessary for if we will meet our housing goals for san front to get clearer about when we want and take some of the uncertainties out of our approval process. there are things that are said about the mayor's measure that are perhaps not true. probably both by proand o ponentses the fight about -- affordable homes now is in the about the afford annual housing piece. everybody agreed what is affordable housing. both measures stream line that. the question is about what set of trade offs are right. what do we want to describe the thing we want that we want to stream line. and the difficulty for me with the pair's measure is it has
12:23 pm
trades i would not make. i would not stream line density bonus projects or with very careful thought about what we are giving up. i would not i don't think redefine affordable housing up to 140ami. that does not make sense. and as we enter the space of trying to figure out what should be stream lined i'm uncomfortable with the idea that there is no period of time after which the board of supervisors could be a super majority say we tryd that and want to change it. those are the occurrence i have about the mir's measure. that's why i said the last time we considered that i wanted thank supervisor chan for getting in the fareway and trying to gift board of supervisors an opportunity to weigh in and come up weapon manage that might be better. it is not there in my view and i can't support it as it is.
12:24 pm
there are things in the supervisor chan's measure i applaud i think san francisco might be wovnt places where skilld and trainedeen if it can't work every where it might work here. with the right set of projects. would work here for the right set of projects. i applaud and thank supervisor chan for her willingness to work and hear from the development community and occurrence are address in the this measure. and i appreciate that. the reasonable i can't sign on is that there is that funds ammal notion in the mayor's measure that we do need see some stream lining of some types of the market rate that is a view i share. i think well is an opportunity for the board to do this without weigh nothing this battle over the larger projects. i think we could do something with smaller projects.
12:25 pm
i understand >> reading tim redmonthe motion of demolition, i think it is a topic we need to start processing here at the board supervisors and peskin and i to being a shot a few years ago. may be it is time to been it again. but you know i -- i think tuesday be good for us to figure out a path to allowing some new construction in yours that have residential development. i get that is not going to be a place the board can go in this measure. but i think and floated ideas 3-9 unit projects around hope sf projects where we could make things easy and get housing. you know even without allowing broader demolition. i'm i have amendments folks interested in that conversation. we have circulated one draft and got feedback from developers of
12:26 pm
the smaller projects prevailing wage is not feasible for 3 to 9 unit because the work of tracking them and tracking down the subs perhaps rent control. you know which we have done in areas is something that could work. at some level at some point for those projects. you know and so i'm available if anyonements my support for the measure. but as it is now i think it is although there are things i like, i think it is not right up the challenge the mayor and the prohousing folks posed. and so -- i will regretful lee now oppose this. >> all right. supervisor chan, soundses like -- you can make a motion to sends this to the full board
12:27 pm
with recommendation or perhaps make a motion to sends without recommendation which supervisor mandelman who wants to keep options is vote for. what is your will? >> thank you, chair peskin. i want to first respond to a bit to what supervisor mandelman has talked about. i think for me the key point of this ballot measure is the conversation around affordability and when is affordal by definition for working family in san francisco. i hold on to the 120% area median income as a threshold we must hold on to in the measure. i think that the conversation when it come to smaller housing development projects the neighborhood infill or also known as dollar unit or the home
12:28 pm
sf a smaller project, at this moment, you know unfortunately, you know, supervisor mandelman is one of the 11 votes i'm talking to colleagues i'm getting different feedback there are clothe in a different place than supervisor mandelman is i'm open to the conversation as of today as it is currently is around affordability and skilld and trained language including the inclusionary percentages of additional 15% come with a 2 to 3 bedroom, which is units those are critical to -- me. and to i believe what will be providing affordable housing that working families in san
12:29 pm
francisco need. at this moment. so i will hold on to those as of today as it is and i am going to 21s gets out i hope it has the vote to get out i can have a more indepth conversation with supervisor mandelman without the violation of brown act. i look forward to having more conversation after the vote and other colleagues on the board. it is my intention and i am making the motion to recommendation to the board today. and it is regrettable for me that not having surprise mandelman's support today but i look forward to having more conversations with him. >> prierz it is to sends it with
12:30 pm
recommendation. on that motion mr. young a roll call yoochl on that motion supervisor chan. >> aye. >> mandelman. >> no. >> chair peskin. >> aye. >> the motion passes. with vice chair mandelman dissenting. >> we will recess to eat a bit of food and reconvene at 12:50

1:00 pm
the commission scombrkz to approve or disapprove criteria use for eligibility or priority for prospect and services where required as condition of funding. the board but the commission shall ash point the members of the board to retire homeless board and shelter committee to advise the commission and require our commission our -- require that our city home oversight committee to advise the commission and the healing commission to advising the mayor special the board and administration of the our city our home funds on monies appropriated from the funds to specify the services relating to holelessness and audit by the controller and held on november 822.
1:01 pm
nais not set fort but incorporated. surprise. thank you for your patience this morning. the floor is yours. that was funny. i'm laughing i was waiting for to you laugh. anyway. thank you, folks as supervisor chair peskin noted we made a couple of last amendments. and ponent to more colleagues -- more are committed and they feel comfortable with this.
1:02 pm
and i think there have been consideration received a letter from glide today or yesterday. stating support. they would are open to further conversation. a number of stake holders in the process and received a positive feedback we appreciate everyone's support and i ask this this item sent to the full board with a positive recommendation today. want to reiterate points why we are hear the department of homeless supportive housing is the largest city departments and it is with a budget of just under 700 million. does not have an oversight committee. this oversight committee would
1:03 pm
ensure consistent transparency and public input. and how important business. this department is conducted. it will interface with a director interface with these -- board members here the mayor's office. and we think that is really important as we witnessed working with supervisor peskin not that many months ago. with a 3 day notice. will with the 7/11 post? that type of notification and process and oversight and transparency is not acceptable. there was a report by the chronicle that talked about
1:04 pm
short somethings in sportive housing stock inform many case they identified case managers working with tenants a ratio of over one to 50. 1 to 80. they are pushing now to reduce that to 1 to 25 and approved that in the budget. these are important decision in any young department given time to grow. time to adjust and so that is what this today is about. it is really about ensuring that there is more coordination and more transparency and oversight can if more accountability we had this in 2018. the mayor's office did not want us to move forward employmented to be begin more time and more opportunity to lead that department at the time she was a new mayor and we deferred.
1:05 pm
here we are today inspect 2022 and -- having a department this this size and not the appropriate over site is not acceptable. so. there was the ain't also that we are puts nothing for the first time in city's history the 8 for the controltory audit his department. we think that audit and measurable goal system an important aspect of this charter amendment. i know you have a busy day. i will conclude my comments. thank you for your support. supervisor peskin and supervisor mandelman has something to say. i want to thank my colleagues for input. i request send this with positive recommendation.
1:06 pm
>> thank you for the rounds of amendments. supervisor mandelman? and cost and sometimes that is appropriate and i think when there is an issue of important public concern where members of the public and entered parties benefit from the opportunity to hear more regular low from departments and to challenge or question or make suggestions that is appropriate. i think it is appropriate here there are an arc bundzance of bodies with some responsibility
1:07 pm
for aspect of homelessness it is confuse to the public where they go when they have concerns one thing supervisor crist typed for adding seats for people concerned or interested about the homelessness issues. i think it is a strength and i know there is disagreement would be directly in either the business of the -- of the -- providing those services or receiving those services. so, i know this has been a gauntlet for the supervisor. there were choice i would not -- necessarily made but i think it will make san front a better
1:08 pm
accomplice to have this commission. and cosponsor. thank you. i want to thank rescue sf for input in the other groups that are out there. i concure i think that the having a small business or neighborhood association -- entity as well as machine that has fiscal accountability as a requirement is an important amendment. so i think that is important. thing to add and i said we have accounts at and auditing ability from the controller -- thank you, supervisor. >> is that is the conclusion of my remarks chair peskin. >> all right. why don't we open item 5 up to public comment. >> members joining in person line up to speak. for those listening remote, call
1:09 pm
415-655-0001 enter the id and press pound, pounds. once connected press story 3 to enter the speaker line. for those in the queue continue to wait for the system to indicate you have been unmuted that is your queue to begin comments can we violate first in person commenter? if you don't mind -- >> i was beginning with the reason i was interrupted. we had somebody in person we start with in person but i -- hold on a minute. kristin we will go. >> i'm not watching. >> we will go to jordan and back
1:10 pm
to you. mrs. davis? >> one second. i want to say i'm disash pointed at the turn of evans today. i made my opposition known to mayoral control. mayor has been controlling this for the past 20 years. it was clear in the chronicle article it happened. and basically -- in the neighborhood organization -- harrassment speaks out against the injustices. and it is sickening i got transphobic harrassment because of the neighborhood groups and you will put one of those people
1:11 pm
on the council. i'm sickened how this came out, you know. i have known about this investigation for a couple years before it came out there is more to come. and i'm sickened a supervisor that does not represent a substantial amount of homeless or an amount of homeless service or a substantial amount of supportive housing. this should have been thoughtful. i'm done with the input of the tenants affect third degree is exploiting our pain to create a very flawed paper tire commission. and i'm sick of it. i'm had it up to here with this and this is in the a legitimate commission and believe me there will be hell to pay temperature is former supervisor on the spotty said. it is on like donkey kong. i yield my time.
1:12 pm
f-you. i greet with jordan have strong reservations about mayoral control of the body. i as i reminder supervisor, reid was my supervisor for 7 years. we saw little action on homelessness solution in our
1:13 pm
neighborhood. even though a tried to work with her for many year. it is about who has the controls. she has control over who is in this department now. this notion that she is a new mayor she was the board the board of supervisors could have taken action on homelessness solutions many times and failed to do so. i really -- am fearful this body -- has real teeth and really push the dial on creating solutions for our homeless neighbors. i would support having a business person on it only appointed bite board of supervisors. thank you. thank you. there are additional speakers on item 5 >> we have 3 more speakers can we get our next speaker, please? supervisors francisco decosta.
1:14 pm
i do not think we need another commission. i don't think we need another commission. if you are listening to the last planning you can riverly find out what people who really want -- to do something about homelessness think about the board of supervisors in total. i know one or 2 really care for the homeless. for our supervisor to think that you can put a charter amendment so that he can win brownie points and the next mayor of san francisco, [laughter] high hopes. high hopes. it is a shame that the city of san francisco had so many
1:15 pm
homeless people. and it is a shame that -- the supervisors -- who had the cloud. allow children and families, too. wasting millions of dollars on
1:16 pm
unnecessary stupid conditions. stupid commissioners. next speaker, please. thank you next speaker, please. hello i'm carrie a san francisco resident and concerned community member. i understand this commission is want specialed by members of the public with homelessness. i'm calling to ask you to oppose this until the feedback of tenant system incorporated. permanent supportive housing tenabilities a committee with appointees and without a seat will continue the unlivable conditions that supportive tenants live under. many other important stake
1:17 pm
holers begin the input i'm standing with permanent supporting housing tenants who are asking this amendment modifyed reflect the demandses that will meet their needs we want a commission this is not it. the people affects have the loudest voices incorporate the feedback of tenants. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. a direct community housing partnership the largest provider of permanent supportive housing in san francisco.
1:18 pm
let the voters decide how they want oversight, community process, into had department. i seen the human services agency and the department of public health haa commission can do and time that you put it on the ballot. get a mission this can- do oversight and condition with lived experience my
1:19 pm
understanding there were 2 seats one by the mayor and the board which are individuals who experienced homelessness and lived experiences. thank you. >> i concur about making amendments. one is i do not think it is appropriate for the mayor to have a majority of arc pointsees on the commission. the mayor seat has an amount of power. and including with diameters. also, i do also agree that we should include the presence of one current permanent supportive ouzing tenant appointed by the
1:20 pm
board on the commission. and lastly i have big concerns about having a community or -- business neighborhood organization -- on the commission -- i would want to make sure if there was member it would be someone from an organization with a noun antagonistic history with the homeless community and be appointed by the board of supervisors. thank you for your consideration but i strongly urge you to include these amendments with the idea of having an oversight commission. thank you very much. >> we have one more caller. >> >> i will assume you can hear me. it is david again. i referred to my previous comments on this item i assume there is no updated controller's
1:21 pm
cost analysis based on version 2. i have spoken on this item before and agree we don't mead to create a new commission. most important it is not clear what the focus would be the oversight of the department, housing wagz on the streets and i think >> it is most important to define the mandate here if this will be successful if this idea continues to move forward otherwise tell be a new commission that may not well -- may not succeed. i'm still not clear how this will washing with the payment's legislation relate to contracts. i think the board of supervisors should a points the members of the local home will coordinating board the shelter monitor committee and the ocohoc. i believe the legislation would change at least the
1:22 pm
appointments. >> and the clerk's excellent june 22, 22 memo has upon issues that have still not been addressd and i appreciate if you could take a moment to go through that. thanks again for listening. >> we have one more caller. thank you. next caller. upon i'm christopher. formerly homeless person live nothing supportive housing in the tenderloin. hsh needs oversight. the lack of folks on hsh is a major problem. um -- that is also a problem is the idea the mayor would be appointing most of the people on this oversight body. this -- i can't passport this as
1:23 pm
it is written. it needs to be primarily board of supervisors appointments. this should are no neighborhood organization. connected to this, that does not make sense. i am frustrated as to how you -- thank people like rescue sf this ignore the voices of people with lived experience of homelessness who keep approaching you about this issue and various other issues. what do we need to have some power in this conversation? to be considered? item is rescue sf like 2 white people why do they have so much power. i don't get that at all.
1:24 pm
i don't support this. it is shit, it is like you saying f-you to us. >> thank you for your comment, can we have our next caller, please? hello supervisors i'm curtis bradfort co chair of [inaudible]. and i'm calling today to ask for changes. i can't support this measure the way other the charter ma'am the way it is written. does not make sense to have a department that is already over -- has oversight by the mayor's office. appointing a majority of the people who will need the oversight of the department that is over seen by the mayor. it is like why bother. we need an oversight committee.
1:25 pm
i'm for that i think it needs to shift so not a majority mayor appointment but major board of supervisors. and i would really love to see and makes the most sense to see a permanent supportive housing residents on the committee as well. in the seats. and i do not understand having a -- member of a member association or -- you know cbd or business on there because we know what their message is. remove the homeless people tr my area. i just -- i really hope that you can make changes so we can support this and have an oversight committee that will work for the benefit of the communities as a whole. and -- please make those changes. thank you. >> thank you. >> are there other speakers? that was the last caller. public comment is closed. >> and the matter is in the
1:26 pm
hands of the committee any last words from supervisor? >> yes, thank you. i just to state for the record i continuing is obvious but you know we are city wide supervisors. as well as district supervisors. of course we will take on issues that impact the entire city. this is -- this issue affects all of san francisco we are compelled to engage on this. and if we don't, it would be foolish to stay that only a few neighborhoods in the city or few districts in the city should have a voice in this conversation when we all need to have a voice and all of us have been a part of that conversation. i have reached out to supervisor dorsey and supervisor former supervisor haney and preston all of the supervisor ronnin. supervisor walten. is a lead cosponsor on this.
1:27 pm
all of the major impacted areas that people consider ground zero for this issue. as city issued housing there is flexant in a number of seats 2 by the board. permanent supporting housing tenants comprise a very large majority of unhoused family unhoused individuals. there will be a very sdrong likelihood they will have a voice and an opportunity to be on this commission. i don't doubt that. the department said and folks said on the record having flexibility or people with lived experience rather than being restrictive is more desired that's why we did not make that amendment special do respect the voice of house being tenants and believe there are an important
1:28 pm
part of the process and heard from many and had input in this conversation. and then final lite issue about the mayor and i said this before we are an executive run city the buck stops with the mayor. we have board confirmation for all of the seats and made the amendment last week that essentially says that -- the term for those receipts on the mayor are shortened for the first rounds and we have the opportunity to have a quick look at who the mayor would have then appointed. feel like this is struck the right balance and heard from our city our home before and a number of different organizations that represent and work with this constituency. we feel confident this is moving forward and appreciate everyone's input in this. thank you, mr. chair >> supervisor chan any words?
1:29 pm
>> yes. thank you, chair peskin. i do and i want to thank supervisor for bring thanksgiving measure forward. i do agree that our when it come to our departments of homelessness and supportive housing and with the rates we are going and we do need oversight. soive appreciate the concept of this ballot measure. what i do have in terms of difference opinion is that again, the make up, of the commission where i think this if we are really about oversight let's make sure that it is not the same. which then the mayor has the majority of the appointments for
1:30 pm
the commission. so that's where i am. and right now i think that if we are moving this forward, which recommendation i regrettablely cannot support this but i look forward to having more of a policy debate full board and seeing what other colleagues think. and that's where i stand at this moment and what look forward to what the full board conversation will look like. but i do agree that we need oversight and if this is the best that we can get it is how some oversight, i think that perhaps we could put this forward to the voter and see what the voters think. >> thank you. >> thank you supervisor chan. so i will make a motion to sends item 5 to the full board with a
1:31 pm
positive recommendation on that motion mr. clerk a roll call. >> yes. supervisor chan. >> no. >> vice chair mandelman. >> aye. >> chair peskin. >> aye. >> the motion passes with
1:32 pm
supervisor chan dissenting in committee. >> next item, please. >> item 6 is charter amendments second draft to amend the charter of san francisco to extend the library funds for 25 years at an election to be held on november 18, 22. >> thank you, mr. clerk i don't think there is anything to add there was one typo somebody pointed out last week and we fixed that. if there are no supervisor? >> quick. this one is simple. we need renew or library preservation fund to ensure the success of our arc mazing library system. this mesh has support, it is -- taking almost every member of the board has no audio. >> the meeting id is 24836358764, press pound and pounds. hit star 3 to enter. we have one person on the line for public comment. can we have our caller, please? dave you'd. briefly i referred to my previous comments i support our libraries and oppose budget set arc sides. thanks. sends to the full board. roll call. >> on that motion, to recommend
1:33 pm
the matter, supervisor chan. >> aye. >> vice share mandelman. >> aye >> chair peskin. >> aye. >> the motion pagszs without objection. >> thank you. call item 8 out of order. >> 8 is charterer amendment second draft to amend the charter of san francisco to change want election cycle for the office of mayor, sheriff, da city attorney and treasure are an election to be held on november 8, 22. supervisor preston? this proposed charter amendment would maximize a voter participation and choosing representatives for all local offices by moving odd year
1:34 pm
elections toeen years. want to thank chair peskin for your cosponsorship and the committee for taking our technical amendments last week. and -- the -- proposed measure moved the mayor, sheriff and da, city attorney and treasurer elected in odd years toeen year elections. and would not change the timing for other elected offices. i want to emphasize this , is an a crucial voting right's measure and the data prosecute the past decade in san francisco shows that even year elections achieved significant low higher voter turn out than the odd year elections. consider the contrast with the city wide turn out of 41% in november 2019 to 86% in november of 20 between it is more than
1:35 pm
double participation. we than low income resident and people of recall are likely to vote in the consolidated elections. at the last hearing i noted that los angeles did in in 2015, saw a much higher participation and san jose did this year. i want to add context that we did not discuss last week and want to emphasize that this is not -- a new idea this is something studied extensively over the last 2 dkdz in california and the data is quite clear. local measure in los angeles and san jose followed a state law that pass in the 2015. and it is known as the california voter participation right's act. it was sb415. supported by a very broad range
1:36 pm
of voting rights organizations. who cited the importance of encouraging voter participation in municipal elections. and the state law actually presents cities from holding the off cycle elections. and decline in voter turn out define as 25% or more difference with the odd year and the consolidated election. cities across the state of california have already been make thanksgiving change and implementing this. however shortly after the state law passed, a lawsuit was filed by the city of rodonaldo beach claiming the law should not apply to charter city in california. city of san francisco filed in support of that on using a home rule argument. and the appellate court agreed and ruled san francisco were free to make the change but not
1:37 pm
compelled to do so by the change in state lawmanidated by sb415. so, i wanted to bring to your attention and e mail that 2 committee members a recent report by common cause. organization focuses on voting rights they studied the 54 cities that switched in years from off cycle elections toeen year elections. these are cities across the statement large and small and cities from all over north and south. they found the change on average tripled voter participation in municipal elections. and -- again. that should be colleague in your box and hopeful ly part of the hearing as well. so i think this is an area where san francisco is -- behind. i think that -- our city is at
1:38 pm
its best in the way making progressive change we were first to banning pandemic evictions, pushing for public bank and major equality on voting rights we have fallen behind on this issue. the state law passed in 2015. and san francisco still has not consolidated or elections this amendment is an opportunity to get us on track ensure more san francisco participate in local democracy and finally -- i want to note it is also not just bringing more votereds to the poles give san francisco breathing room between elections something this is appealing now. as we head in our fourth election of the year and also save us significant funds as estimated by the control in a letter submitted last week. estimated 6.9 million dollars
1:39 pm
savings for the odd year elections that are arc voided. with that, happy to answer questions. hope to have your support and thank you. for hearing this item. >> thank you, supervisor. i think your arguments are unarc sailable and the cause all right of february 2021, which has the findings you set forth was submitted by your staff and would be included as a part of the record of the proceedings for this file number are there commentses from committee members? seeing 91. go to public comment on this item. >> yes. members of the public who wish to speak join nothing person line up to speak. for those remote call 415-sick 55-0001 and id24836358764. and press pound and pounds. press star 3 to enter the
1:40 pm
speaker line. for those in the queue wait until you have been unmuted that will be your time tom speak to begin your comment. there does not appear to be anyone the room we have one caller on the line for public comment. >> first speaker please. >> david againful i still oppose this idea i still go in the other direction and restore the other off year election having the local election in november is an important check on our local government regardless of who is in your seats i rather have more determine and this gets us less democracy i'm not convinced we would get higher turn out the cost savings are not worth it. we tends in my view to have higher voter turn out when offices and measureers more heavily contested rather than what date they are on the
1:41 pm
calendar. it is not easy for department of elections to keep the staff in between election cycles. make it hard 30 would result in a june and november election with 5 and then 19 month gaps between elections, i think this is too much. voters rejected changes to recall elections in prop c in june. i hope they will similarly reject this measure. respect to the proponent, but i'm sorry i disagree with this idea. thanks for listening. >> public comment is closed. seems like at a time had we. we have one more commenter who jumped on. reopen public comment my apologies. can we have the last commenter? hi.
1:42 pm
supervisors. good afternoon marie. i am torn on this one. i am a fan of saving money i like that. on the other hand i'm a fan of democracy and the electorate having the opportunity to understand and focus on the issues that are on the ballot. in the marquee elections, i think that they stuck up the air in the room and the ballot measures that appear lower on the ballot or on whicheses that are lower on the baloat get little attention and have pretty poor results. the 3 board of edmembers were the result of low paying attention. -- because they are low they are down ballot -- position. so -- i'm torn on this. but i do favor the opportunity
1:43 pm
for the public to be more informed and better informed on what nay are voting for. i think consolidating the election system an attack on that ability. thank you. >> thank you. completes our caller list for this matter >> close public comment and i will mote that school board elections are in even numbered years. and i will say this -- about the depressing state of affair in our country as state after state are turning out ways to depress and suppress voter turn out. we are seeing that across this country. and i think any efforts to increase voter turn out and to have elections most people vote is true democracy. i will say that i have always run during presidential elections. and that is i mean those are
1:44 pm
when you are run nothing wloeventh of the city. if you did that in an odd number year it would be a handful of thousands of votes that would be cast in a supervisor's race as compared to what happen in a presidential. i think that is the fundsamential of electoral democracy and california realized that as they hinted this to what was everything other than charter ecstasy. i think we as a supervisor are catch you go upon in this matter. with that supervisor mandelman. >> thank you. chair peskin. i am comfortable forwarding this to the full board with positive recommendation. i have some concerns. i think the loss of an opportunity to put general obligation bonds and other measure in front in a way that
1:45 pm
is anticipatable in front of the voter system a loss. i tends to think that giving voters -- fewer time when is they have to weigh in and making the times more important boosts, turn out and good for democracy. but sensitive to the argument you know -- no audio.... the notion that democracy exercising your vote is a muscle that is exercises more frequently. i am sort of curious and i have not looked may be in our record but -- we have sort of done half of this. eliminated one off year election and no audio....
1:46 pm
is -- some analysis or may be there is not might be analysis of haimpacts that had and whether that has been positive or negative for democracy in our bond program and other things. so -- i'm -- and it is does feel like a big change. we did not go through the same level of press that other cities do. may be at some point you don't need to because we discussed it is the right thing to do and everybody should do it. but it does feel like somewhat large change. i am -- i think supportive and i think we are prepared vote in favor of sending it with reservations. supervisor chan? any words? >> thank you. chair peskin i don't have much
1:47 pm
more. i stand where i was last week. its cost saving and most importantly voters turn out. i think those are critical races and will be good to have higher voter turn outs for democracy and fairness. thank you. >> i will make a motion to sends file 220638 with a positive recommendation. thank you supervisor peskin and mr. clerk. on that motion supervisor chan? >> aye. >> vice hair mandelman >> aye >> chair peskin. >> aye. >> motion passes without objection. item 7. >> yes. item 7 is a charter amendment second draft to amend the charter of the city and coincident of san francisco e eliminate sanitation and streets and transfer responsibility to the d. public works and remove questions of law ifkdzs for members of the sanitation and street's commission and public
1:48 pm
works commission and for the director of public works to lim the duties of sanitation commission reviewing data and setting anthropologists and election held on november 8, 22. >> thank you, mr. clerk. i want to thank and acknowledge the city controller for the statement that indicates this is put on the ballot and passed by voters would lead to significant cost savings. i would like to afford the director of public works the opportunity to say any additional words beyond thap which she expressed at our last meeting and mrs. a lonzy the resident expert if you want to say anything the floor is yours then public comment. thank you for your help and support in this matter. >> thank you. chair pes cane. supervisors. i don't have anything to add
1:49 pm
other than we feel that if the city is going to spends the resources -- we prefer they spent on direct labor or street cleaning service rather than arc additional administrator costs the cost saves could be well uses. >> no subtractions. in terms of the cost savings it is reason why we valid cost savings from this charter amendment is not need to have a separate executive director. executive assistant commission secretary. staff and commissioners associated on labor costs as well there is tenant improve ams to accommodate the new
1:50 pm
positions. putting decalos trucks to rebrand from public works to the new sanitation department. new vests and admin staff because keeping everyone within one financial structure minimizes the work for accountants and it and contract admin and performance measurement. so -- share that in addition to the previous efficiencies that we talked about last week about maintaining the connections between the designers and the people constructing and maintaining the work admit long run. >> and likely would over time, lead to less contracting out is your position, i believe. >> yes. that is my position. the costs limited resourszs we than. by increasing the cost to deliver projects less money left over for direct services and by
1:51 pm
increasing the costs -- no audio audio. >> david again. i will refer to my previous comments i will not reread on this item. i do think that if this sproefl to eliminate the department it seems odd to keep a commission with an extremely limited scope. i would go all the way. and e eliminate the fas commission and fold all in dpw. if you want to keep the bshgs dpw commission. so be it. expand thap to 7 members from 5 sobut seems odd to keep another commission with limited scope
1:52 pm
with no staff that simply reviews standardses relating to street cleaning and such. it is odd. and wasteful. and again the clerk's excellent june 22nd, 22 memo has issues that i'm not sure have been addressed. good work. i'm supportive here. public comment is closed. i will make a motion to sends this with recommendation to the full board of supervisoros that motion a roll call. >> supervisor chan? >> aye. >> vice chair mandelman. >> aye >> chair peskin. >> aye. >> the motion passes without objection. item 9. >> yes. item 9, is a charter ma'am for
1:53 pm
charter the city to provide pension of a member of the san front employee retirement system [inaudible] convincing evidence after a hearing the member committed a crime involving moral turpitude in connection with the member duties as city employee or officer on election on november 8, 22. >> thank you. colleagues i would like to tell you the long story of the 6 meet and covers i had with the department of human resources and employee relations and a vast array of different labor organizations ranging from the service employees international urining 10-1. the international federation of professional technical engineers local 21 station engineers,
