Seattle City Council Finance & Neighborhoods Committee Special Meeting 7/31/19


>>>AFTERNOON, EVERYONE. AND WELCOME TO THE FINANCE AND NEIGHBORHOODS COMMITTEE. TODAY IS JULY 31 AND IT IS 2:00 P.M. I AM COUNCILMEMBER BAGSHAW, THE CHAIR OF THE COMMITTEE. THANK YOU COUNCILMEMBER PACHECO FOR JOINING US. THANK YOU ALLISON FOR GETTING IS ORGANIZED. THE FIRST ORDER IS TO APPROVE THE AGENDA. IF THERE IS NO OBJECTIO, THE AGENDA WILL BE ADOPTED. HEARING NO OBJECTION, THE AGENDA IS ADOPTED. WE HAVE SIX ITEMS ON THE AGENDA TODAY. THE FIRST IS A BRIEFING, DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE VOTE FOR A HUMAN RESOURCES ORDINANCE THAT IS RELATED TO CITY EMPLOYMENT. AFTER THAT, WE WILL BEGIN THE SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET REVIEW. I APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT DIRECTOR BEN NOBLE IS HERE. THERE IS NO VOTE ON THIS THAT WE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT FIVE SUPPLEMENTAL ITEMS. THE EXCEPTIONS ORDINANCE, THE CARRYFORWARD ORDINANCE, THE SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET ORDINANCE, THE CIP ABANDONMENT ORDINANCE AND THE GRAND ACCEPTANCE ORDINANCE. IT IS MY HOPE TODAY THAT WE WILL GET THROUGH ALL OF THESE ITEMS. IN FACT, I WILL INSIST WE GET THROUGH ALL OF THESE ITEMS SO WE CAN BRING THEM FORWARD AND WE WILL DEAL WITH THE VOTES IN THE AMENDMENTS ON AUGUST 9. RIGHT NOW WE WILL OPEN FOR PUBLIC COMMENT. SEEING NOBODY WHO HAS SIGNED UP OR INTERESTED IN IT, DON’T TAKE THAT PERSONALLY. I KNOW THAT BUDGET IS AN EXCITING TIME FOR EVERYBODY. SO SINCE WE HAVE NO ONE HERE TODAY, WE WILL MOVE RIGHT IN AND ALLISON, IF YOU WOULD BE SO KIND AS TO READ IN THE FIRST ITEM OF BUSINESS. >>ITEM NUMBER ONE, 1024. AND ORDER NET RELATING TO CITY EMPLOYMENT, ESTABLISHING NEW WAGE RELATIONSHIPS FOR CERTAIN JOB TITLES. >>CAN RETURN THIS DOWN A LITTLE BIT? IT SOUNDS LIKE WE ARE ECHOING HERE. >>RICH GROFF , 1025, SEATTLE CITY LIGHT. >>THE PROPOSED LEGISLATION WOULD RAISE THE WAGES OF HYDRO MAINTENANCE WORKERS AT SEATTLE CITY LIGHT. I WILL SUMMARIZE THE CENTRAL STAFF MEMO ATTACHED TO YOUR AGENDA. BY BRIEFLY REVIEWING SOME BACKGROUND AND I WILL DESCRIBE THE FISCAL IMPACTS OF THE LEGISLATION. IN TERMS OF ENCAPSULATION OF SOME OF THE BACKGROUND, HYDRO MAINTENANCE WORKERS AT CITY LIGHT ARE COVERED BY A COLLECTIVE WORKING AGREEMENT THAT PERMITS THE UNION TO REQUEST WAGE REVIEW OF JOB TITLES AND ALSO AUTHORIZES A WAGE REVIEW COMMITTEE AT CITY LIGHT TO RULE ON WAGE INCREASES SUBJECT TO FINAL APPROVAL BY THE CITY COUNCIL. IN AUGUST 2018, THE UNION LOCAL 77 REQUESTED A WAGE REVIEW OF THE TOP STEP OF THE WAGE PROGRESSION FOR 2 POSITIONS. HYDRO MAINTENANCE WORKER 1 AND HYDRO MAINTENANCE WORKER 2. IN OCTOBER 2018, THE CITY LIGHT WAGE REVIEW COMMITTEE TOOK ACTION SUPPORTING WAGE INCREASES CITING SEVERAL FACTORS. THE PROPOSED WAGE INCREASES BOOKABLE ONLY TO THE TOP STAFF IN THE WAGE PROGRESSION WOULD BE BASED ON A CERTAIN PERCENTAGE OF A BASELINE WAGE THAT IS THE ESTABLISHED WAGE FOR MORE EXPERIENCED JOURNEY LEVEL POSITIONS. THE PROPOSED LEGISLATION WOULD DO THE FOLLOWING. IT WOULD ESTABLISH A NEW SO- CALLED BASELINE WAGE AT $47.51 PER HOUR. FOR A HYDRO MAINTENANCE WORKER, 1, THE LEGISLATION WOULD INCREASE THE TOP A STEP TO 75% OF THIS BASELINE WAGE. RESULTING IN A WAGE INCREASE TO $35.62 PER HOUR. FOR HYDRO MAINTENANCE WORKER 2, THE INCREASE TO THE TOP STEP WOULD BE UP TO 80% OF THE BASELINE WAGE THAT WOULD RESULT IN AN INCREASE UP TO $37.83 PER HOUR. IN TERMS OF THE FISCAL IMPACTS, THE PROPOSED WAGE INCREASES WOULD CHANGE THE WAGES FOR 9 EXISTING POSITIONS. AND THIS INCREASE WOULD START IN THE PAY PERIOD FOLLOWING THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE REPOSE LEGISLATION. THE LEGISLATION WOULD NOT AUTHORIZE ANY RETRO-PAY. AND THE EXECUTIVE ESTIMATES THAT THE PROPOSED WAGE INCREASES WOULD ADD A TOTAL OF $7000 ANNUALLY. AND CITY LIGHT PLANS TO ABSORB THESE EXTRA COSTS WITHOUT REQUESTING ADDITIONAL BUDGET AUTHORITY. IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS, I CAN ANSWER THEM. OR PERHAPS THE FOLKS AT THE TABLE CAN. >>SEATTLE CITY LIGHT? >>I HAVE A CLARIFICATION TO THE STATEMENT. IS NOT ESTABLISHING A NEW BASELINE WAGE, IT IS ADJUSTING THE RELATIONSHIP OF THESE TWO TITLES TO THE BASELINE WAGE. THAT IS FOR THE ENTIRE BARGAINING UNIT. >>>THAT IS HELPFUL. >>ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD? EITHER AS PART OF THE NEGOTIATIONS OR SEATTLE CITY LIGHT? >>I WOULD SAY THAT IT IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE COLLABORATIVE PROCESS. THAT UNION APPROACHED US AND WE ENGAGED IN DISCUSSIONS RIGHT AWAY. I THINK RICH WOULD ADD THESE WERE COLLABORATIVE IN A PROFESSIONAL WAY. THERE WAS AGREEMENT REALLY EARLY ON THAT THIS WAS A LEGITIMATE ASK. IT HAS BEEN SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE BEEN REVIEWING FOR A WHILE. TO INCREASE DUTIES WITH THIS PARTICULAR CLASSIFICATION OVERTIME. ON THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE WORK THEY DID WITH THE JOURNEY WORKERS OUT THERE. SO IT IS REALLY A GOOD PROCESS IN GENERAL. IT IS NICE TO SEE IT COME TO FRUITION. >>IS THIS MOSTLY FOUNDRY >>VERY GOOD. >>COUNCILMEMBER PACHECO, DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS? >>ALL RIGHT. I THINK IF THERE ARE NO FURTHER QUESTIONS, WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, I WILL MOVE APPROVAL OF THAT COUNSEL BILL. HOLD ON ONE MOMENT. COUNSEL BILL 119579. DO WE HAVE A SECOND? ALL THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE. NONE A POST. NOTE EXIGENCE. THANK YOU. ONE MORE THING FOR SEATTLE CITY LIGHT. THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT EVENT YOU HAD IN PARTICIPATED IN AT THE DENNY’S SUBSTATION. IT WAS A DELIGHTFUL DAY. A WONDERFUL PROJECT BUT I ALSO WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE HOW MUCH GOOD WORK THAT WE HAD DONE, BRINGING IN THE PREMISES AND THE APPRENTICE, PRE-APPRENTICE PROGRAM. I HAD A GOOD TIME TALKING WITH A NUMBER OF PEOPLE THERE THAT WERE IN THE PROGRAM. >>EXCELLENT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION AS WELL. >>IT WAS A WONDERFUL DAY. IT IS A GOOD THING THAT WE OBJECT. ONG AND HARD ON THAT VERY GOOD. I APPRECIATE THAT. THE NEXT FIVE ITEMS, WE WILL NOT BE VOTING ON THESE BUT THEY ARE ALL IMPORTANT. AS ALLISON IS READING THIS IN, THEN, I WILL INVITE YOU AND ANYBODY ELSE. 27, TOM? >>ITEM NUMBER TWO, CB 119572. AN ORDINANCE AMENDING ORDINANCE 125493, WHICH AMENDED THE 2018 BUDGET ORDINANCE INCLUDING THE 2018-2023 CAPITAL. PROGRAM. IT AFTER THE 2019 BUDGET, INCLUDING THE 2019-2024 CIP. A #4, AN ORDINANCE AMENDING WANT TO 574, WHICH ADOPTED THE 2019 BUDGET. WHICH INCLUDED THE CAPITAL PERMIT PROGRAM. AND ITEM NUMBER FARK, COUNSEL BILL NUMBER 119576 WHICH AMENDED THE ORDINANCE WANT TO 574 WHICH INCLUDED THE CIP. FINALLY, ITEM NUMBER SIX, CANCEL BELT 119574, REGARDING THE ACCEPTANCE OF FUNDING FROM NON-CITY SOURCES. OPEN FOR DISCUSSION OF ALL FIVE. >>1027? ARE YOU OR TOM MISKESELL GOING TO INTRODUCE THIS? >>THIS WILL BE TOM’S SHOW. I WANT TO MAKE A QUICK,. RATHER ASK A QUESTION. ARE YOU COMFORTABLE HAVING THE FIVE ORDINANCES PRESENTED AS A BODY OF LEGISLATION? IN ONE GO? OR WOULD YOU PREFER TO HAVE THEM SEPARATED MORE. SINCE WE ARE NOT VOTING. >>ELSE AND HAS READ THEM ALL IN. AT THE POINT WHERE YOU ARE SHIFTING, IF WE WOULD JUST MAKE IT REALLY CLEAR THAT WE ARE SHIFTING SO THAT THE RECORDS IS OBVIOUS FOR ANYBODY WHO IS INTERESTED. >>VERY GOOD. >>ALSO JUST BECAUSE THE AGENDA ITEM NUMBER AND THE ORDER THAT IT IS LISTED IN TOM’S MEMO ARE DIFFERENT. COULD YOU JUST FLAG WHAT AGENDA ITEM WITH REGARDS TO THE ROOM RESPECTABLE BILLS? >>WELCOME, TOM. >>THANK YOU, MADAM CHAIR. COUNCILMEMBER PACHECO , IT IS A PLEASURE TO BE HERE. AS YOU ALL INTRODUCE, WE HAVE FIVE SEPARATE PIECES OF LEGISLATION. SAID TOGETHER THEY COMPRISE THE FIRST SUPPLEMENTAL ADJUSTMENT PACKAGE FOR THE 2019 BUDGET. AND AS ALLISON INDICATED, THE AGENDA IS SLIGHTLY MISMATCHED WITH THE WAY THE MEMO WAS WRITTEN. BUT I CAN POINT OUT THE ROADMAP TOGETHER. SO KIND OF STARTING FROM THE FIRST, IF YOU REFER TO THE MEMO, THE FIRST BILL IS COUNSEL BILL 119572. THIS IS THE, INFORMALLY, OR PERHAPS FORMALLY THE EXCEPTIONS ORDINANCE. WHAT THIS DOES IS, WELL BY LAW, THE CITY DEPARTMENTS CAN’T SPEND BEYOND THE AMOUNT ALLOCATED IN THE BCL, AT THE BCL LEVEL. >>CAN I JUST MAKE SURE THAT AS WE ARE GOING THROUGH THIS THAT WE TRY TO AVOID ACRONYMS. SO ONCE WE TALK ABOUT BUDGET CONTROL LEVEL, HENCEFORTH, WE CAN MAKE IT CLEAR. >>BUDGET CONTROL LEVEL. THAT IS THE LEGAL LEVEL OF CONTROL. IT HAS HAPPENED FROM TIME TO TIME THAT THERE ARE INSTANCES WHERE OF THE ACTUAL LEVEL OF EXPENDITURES EXCEEDS THE BCL. IT IS APPROPRIATE FOR THE NAME BECAUSE THIS IS THE EXCEPTION RATHER THAN THE RULE. IN MOST CASES, THAT DOES NOT HAPPEN. BUT THERE ARE A FEW ITEMS. COUNSEL BILL 119572 TOTALS 13,000, 13 MILLION, ESSENTIALLY $13.7 MILLION WORTH OF THIS TYPE OF CHANGE. PERHAPS CONVENIENTLY, THE BILL AND THE BULK OF THAT AMOUNT IS IN ONE ITEM, WHICH IS TO INCREASE THE SAS CUSTOMER REQUESTED TENANT IMPROVEMENTS PROGRAM BUDGET. WHAT THE, WHAT IS INFORMALLY REFERRED TO AS THE COURTESY PROGRAM, IT ALLOWS AUTHORITY TO COMPLETE WORK REQUESTED BY CITY DEPARTMENTS. AND IT IS ESSENTIALLY JUST PASSED THROUGH BUDGET AUTHORITY. THE ORIGINAL CASH COMES FROM THE DEPARTMENTS AND FLOWS THROUGH FAS THAT DOES THE WORK. SO THE INTENT UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES WOULD BE TO HAVE MADE THIS ADJUSTMENT IN THE FOURTH QUARTER SUPPLEMENTAL OF 2018. HOWEVER, DUE TO AN ERROR IN THE PROCESS, THAT DID NOT HAPPEN. SO THIS JUST CORRECTS FOR THAT. SO THAT IS THE BULK OF THE $13.7 MILLION CHANGE. >>JUST ONE OTHER THING, THE MEMO TOM PREPARED IS IDEAL. IF YOU’RE COMFORTABLE, I THOUGHT I WOULD WALK THROUGH AND OFFER EXPLANATION FOR THESE ITEMS AS WE GO. RATHER THAN HAVING A SEPARATE GO. WHAT I WANTED TO SAY ABOUT THE EXCEPTIONS IS THAT AT SOME LEVEL I’M EMBARRASSED TO HAVE THIS YEAR IN FRONT OF YOU AT ALL. OUR GOAL IS TO IT MR. A BUDGET WITHOUT ANY EXCEPTIONS AT THE END OF THE YEAR. I SAID THE SAME THING LASTER. I AM HERE AGAIN. IS NOT PERFECTED THIS. IN OUR DEFENSE, IF YOU WILL, THE SHIFT IS SOMETHING WE ARE STILL WORKING THROUGH. THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR WE DID THE YEAR AND UNDER THE NEW SYSTEM. THERE WERE SOME THINGS MISSED, BOTTOM LINE. NONE OF THIS IS, ANYWAY, NONE OF THIS IS MONEY THAT WAS EXPENDED IN WAYS THAT COUNSEL ESSENTIALLY INTENDED. THEY WERE EITHER ERRORS IN THE WAYS IT WAS REPORTED OR FOR INSTANCE IN THE CASE OF FAS, THOSE MONEY WERE DOUBLE APPROPRIATE. YOU HAD GIVEN THE DEPARTMENTS THE AUTHORITY TO IMPROVEMENTS AND THEY SPEND THAT MONEY BY GIVING IT TO FAS. WHAT WE HADN’T DONE IS TO TELL YOU THAT YOU NEEDED TO GIVE FAS THE AUTHORITY FROM THE DEPARTMENT. THAT WAS 99% OF WHAT WAS HERE. THAT IS NOT AN EXCUSE. IT IS NOT MATERIAL. IT NEEDS TO BE BETTER. WE ARE CONTINUING TO WORK ON THAT. >>THANK YOU. I KNOW I ASKED YOU THE SPECIFIC, DO WE HAVE MONEY TO PAY THIS? >>YES. IT IS MONEY YOU APPROPRIATED IN FACT. >>IS MORE OF AN ACCOUNTING THING. >>A TIMING PIECE. OUR GOAL IS NO EXCEPTIONS. I RECENTLY, THE DEPARTMENT WAS SAYING WE HAD TO DECIDE WHICH AUTHORITY TO ASK FOR. IF WE DON’T ASK FOR THIS MESSAGE, I DON’T WANT AN EXCEPTION. WE ARE ASKING FOR MORE AUTHORITY THAN YOU NEED AND WHY. SO AGAIN, TO GIVE YOU A SENSE OF HOW WE WILL MANAGE TO AVOID THESE. >>THANK YOU. VERY GOOD. >>SO THAT INCLUDES MY COMMENTS ON THAT BILL. THAT WAS AGENDA ITEM NUMBER TWO. FOR, WITH PERMISSION, I WILL MOVE ON. WE WILL JUMP ONE AND COME BACK TO THREE. >>THIS IS COUNSEL BILL 119573. THIS IS THE 2019 CARRYFORWARD ORDINANCE. WHICH IN EFFECT CARRIES FORWARD UNSPENT APPROPRIATIONS FROM THE LAST FISCAL YEAR INTO THIS FISCAL YEAR TO COMPLETE THE WORK THAT THOSE APPROPRIATIONS WERE ORIGINALLY GIVEN FOR. SO THERE WERE A NUMBER OF INCREASES IN THIS COUNSEL BILL. THE TOTAL IS $90.3 MILLION. 36.2 OF THAT IS IN THE GENERAL FUND. I GUESS IN TERMS OF THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THIS IS NOT NEW MONEY IN TERMS OF AN EFFECT ON THE FUND BALANCE. BECAUSE THE ORIGINAL THOUGHT WAS THAT THESE APPROPRIATIONS WOULD BE SENT LAST YEAR. SO WHAT WE ARE DOING IS MOVING THAT AUTHORITY FORWARD TO 2019 FISCAL YEAR. >>COULD I JUST ASK ABOUT, I’M LOOKING AT TALLIES HERE. AND ON PAGE 12 OF 14 ON 119573, I NOTICED THAT WE HAVE A TOTAL OF $88 MILLION. AND 1.7 MILLION, DOES THAT ADD UP TO THE 90.3? IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE IT IS A LITTLE SHORT. NOPE. IT’S FINE. THANK YOU. THOSE ARE THE TWO COLUMNS. THE ONE ON PAGE 12 FOR 80.5 AND ONE ON PAGE 13 FOR 1.7. THAT EQUALS THE NUMBER THAT YOU JUST SPECIFIED ABOUT 90.3 MILLION. >>GOOD.’S THANK YOU. >>SO I WILL JUST RUN THROUGH HIGHLIGHTS. THIS CONTRACTS THE MEMO. AT A VERY HIGH LEVEL. SO IN TERMS OF THE GENERAL FUND, THERE IS A $13.6 MILLION IN THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT. THIS REPRESENTS UNSPENT PORTIONS OF AN INTERFUND LOAN FOR THE EQUITABLE DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE. AND THE ORIGINAL ORIGIN OF THESE MONIES WAS THE SALE OF THE CIVIC SQUARE PROPERTY. SO THIS IS ESSENTIALLY A LOAN THAT IS IN PLACE UNTIL THOSE PROCEEDS COME IN. >>HOW DOES THIS WORK? I KNOW LAST WEEK WHEN WE HAD GONE THROUGH SEVERAL WEEKS WORTH OF CONVERSATIONS AROUND BOTH WIND BEVERAGE TAX AND EEI, THEY WERE COMPANION BILLS. HOW DO THOSE COMPARE? HOW MUCH MONEY IS COMING IN TO PAY OFF THE 13.6? ARE THEY JUST HAND AND GLOVE NOW? IS ONE AHEAD OF THE OTHER AS FAR AS MONEY COMING IN? >>I CAN EXPLAIN. SO THIS IS 13.6. THIS IS WHAT IS LEFT OF AN ORIGINAL $50 MILLION APPROPRIATION TO EDI THAT IS BACKED BY THE PROCEEDS I AM POINTING FOR THE SAFETY OF THE AUDIENCE. IS ACROSS FROM CITY HALL. IT WAS FORMALLY THE LOCATION OF THE PUBLIC SAFETY BUILDING. THE CITY IS GOING TO BE PAID $50 MILLION AND RECEIVE SOME OF THE COMPENSATION AS WELL FOR THE PARCEL. THAT MONEY, THOSE MONIES ARE DEDICATED TO THE DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE. THE EDI PROJECTS. THE TIMING ON WHEN THE LAND SALE WILL CLOSE, ACTUALLY IT IS LOOKING LIKE EARLY 2020 AT THIS POINT. WE HAVE LEARNED FOR SOME TIME THAT IT WAS GOING TO CLOSE. AND WE KNEW THAT SOME OF THE EDI PROJECTS NEEDED FUNDING IMMEDIATELY. SO WHAT WE DID WAS TO SAY, DID YOU AND INTERFUND LOAN. TO TAKE FROM THE CITY’S CHECKING ACCOUNT. $50 MILLION. AND MAKE IT AVAILABLE TO THE OFFICE SEE, OFFICE OF POLICY AND VELVET. TO ADMINISTER AND TO FUND THE EDI PROJECTS. BUT THEY HAVEN’T EXPENDED THAT MONEY IN ANY GIVEN YEAR. IT WAS NEVER THE INTENT THAT THEY WOULD. SO WHAT WE ARE DOING IS CARRYING FORWARD THAT APPROPRIATION. OP CD WILL CONTINUE. THEY HAD SPENT SOME OF IT. IT WAS ORIGINALLY 15. NOW IT IS DOWN TO 13 1/2. THEY HAVE BEEN GIVING SMALL GRANTS TO INDIVIDUAL ORGANIZATIONS. SO WE WILL CONTINUE TO CARRY THIS FORWARD. UNTIL IT IS ULTIMATELY EXPENDED. THAT IS THE ONE TIME ALLOCATION. THE MORE EXCITING NEWS ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE IS THAT AS PART OF THE SHORT-TERM RENTAL TAX THAT HAS BEEN IMPOSED STATEWIDE, IT IS ATTACKED THAT EXTENDS EFFECTIVELY HOTEL MOTEL TAXES TO THINGS LIKE AIR B&B AND I’M NOT GOING TO DO THAT ACRONYM. THE CITY HAS TAKEN WHAT $10 MILLION PER YEAR. HALF THAT 5 MILLION HAS BEEN DEDICATED ON AN ONGOING BASIS TO THE EQUITABLE DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE, WHICH VERY QUICKLY, ANYTIME BEYOND THREE YEARS WILL BE MORE THAN THE INITIAL 15. IT IS INTENDED TO ONLY COMPLEMENT THIS AS WELL. SO EDI NOW HAS AN ONGOING FUNDING SOURCE OF $5 MILLION PER YEAR. >>VERY GOOD, THANK YOU. >>VERY CLEAR AND DISTINCT. >>THE NEXT INCREASE I WOULD HIGHLIGHTS IS $1.7 MILLION. THAT IS A CARRYFORWARD TO THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION AND EARLY LEARNING POST SECONDARY PROGRAM TO THE UNSPENT’S WIND BEVERAGE TAXES. THAT IS $1.4 MILLION. AND THE REMAINING 349 IS FROM THAT CITY’S GENERAL FUND. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF OTHER SWEETENED BEVERAGES TAXES AND FUNDED ITEMS THAT I WILL TAKE IN ORDER. ONE IS A ONE MILLION-DOLLAR INCREASE IN HST FOR FOOD AND NUTRITION PROGRAM CONTRACTS. AND AN ADDITIONAL $706-$9000 GOING TO THE OFFICE OF THE CITY AUDITOR TO PERFORM EVALUATIONS AND SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX PROGRAMS. >>ALSO, KIND OF A LARGER CATEGORY IN FINANCE IN GENERAL, THIS IS WHERE WE SET ASIDE MONIES TO MEET AND INTENDED COUNSELED PURPOSE. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THESE INDIVIDUAL BUCKETS OF MONEY THAT WERE NOT SPENT IN DOES 19. WE ARE CARRYING THEM FORWARD WITH THE IDENTICAL PURPOSE INTO THE NEW FISCAL YEAR. THERE IS $1.3 MILLION FOR SAFE CONSUMPTION SITE RESERVE. $590,000 FOR EQUITABLE DEVELOPMENT LOAN INTEREST. 232,000 FOR INSURANCE PREMIUM PAYMENT. $100,000 FOR — >>REMEMBER LAMBERT HOUSE? >>THEY HAD ALLOCATED $100,000, THEY WERE LOOKING TO MAKE A LIST OF THEIR FACILITY. >>I DON’T REMEMBER WHAT IT IS. I’M SORRY. >>IT IS LGBTQ YOUTH SUPPORT FACILITY. >>THANK YOU. >>A NONPROFIT. >>QUESTIONS? >>THE SAFE CONSUMPTION SITE RESERVE, I WAS LOOKING AT THE NOTES. IT WAS SAYING SOMETHING ABOUT THE CITY CLERK. WHAT WAS THE HOLDUP? I AM JUST CURIOUS. >>I UNDERSTAND THE BROADER CONTEXT. >>THAT IS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, IF YOU WILL. THE IDEA IS THAT WHEN WE HAVE A PLAN, WE CALL ON THE COUNCIL TO BRING SOME THE FORD. IT DOESN’T SEEM PRUDENT TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE GENERAL SPACE AS HAS BEEN DESCRIBED.’S FOREIGN ALTERNATIVES AS WE SPEAK AS TO WAYS TO ADDRESS THE UNDERLYING ISSUES. >>GOOD. I WOULD LIKE TO PUT A BOOKMARK AND THAT OVER THE NEXT FEW WEEKS BEFORE THE BUDGET RATHER THAN JUST HOLDING ON TO THE SAFE CONSUMPTION SITE MONEY. AND HAVING IT SIT THERE IN THE BANK ACCOUNT TO LOOK AT WAYS THAT WE CAN USE IT FOR OTHER BEHAVIORAL HEALTH NEEDS. JUST AS AN EARLY ALERT, I THINK THAT IS SOMETHING THAT I PERSONALLY AM GOING TO BE VERY INTERESTED IN. THANKS, TOM. CIAA I KEEP INTERRUPTING YOU. >>THAT IS QUITE ALL RIGHT. THAT IS WHY WE ARE HERE. SO JUST AROUND THAT OUT, THERE IS STILL MONEY LEFT FOR SEATTLE RETIREMENT SAVING PLANS STUDY. 152,000. AND $500,000 FOR A SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX, YOUTH OPPORTUNITY PROJECTS, ETC. >>THANK YOU. >>SO NOW I WILL MOVE INTO THE OTHER FUNDS. THE NON-GENERAL FUND INCREASES. THERE IS JUST SHY OF $30 MILLION IN THE SEATTLE I.T. DEPARTMENT. SAID THIS IS SIMILAR TO THE FAS INCREASE THE I LET OFF WITH WHERE THERE IS AN APPROPRIATION AMOUNT IN THE I.T. DEPARTMENT. WHAT THAT DOES IS GIVE I.T. STAFF THE ABILITY TO SPEND MONEY TRANSMITTED TO THEM FROM OTHER DEPARTMENTS TO COMPLETE PROJECTS ON THE BEHALF OF THOSE DEPARTMENTS. THIS AMOUNT IS CARRYING FORWARD WORK THAT WAS BEGUN IN 2018 FOR THE OTHER DEPARTMENTS. INCLUDING CITY LIGHT AND AS DCI WHERE I THINK MAJOR CHUNKS OF THE MONEY, IT CARRIES THE MONEY FORWARD SO THEY COMPLETE THE WORK. >>A COUPLE OF THINGS ON THIS ONE. SOME OF THIS IS THE RESULT OF THE I.T. NOT BEING ABLE TO GET PROJECTS AT THE DOOR ON THE TIMELINE ORIGINALLY IDENTIFIED. SO A NEW DIRECTOR IS WORKING HARD TO STREAMLINE PROJECT DELIVERY AND TO MAKE SURE. BUT WE ARE ALSO CHANGING FROM MANY DEPARTMENTS TO BUILDING STRUCTURES. IN THE PAST, WHAT HAD HAPPENED IS WE BUILT THE DEPARTMENTS FOR THE WORK BASED ON THE COST ESTIMATE AND COLLECTED THE REVENUES AND PUT THEM INTO SATELLITE CHECKING ACCOUNTS IF YOU WILL. THEY WERE SPENT AS THE PROJECT MOVE FORWARD. MOVING MORE TOWARDS A BUILD AS YOU GO ARRANGEMENT, THEY WON’T BE HAVING TO CARRY THE BUDGET AUTHORITY FORWARD NECESSARILY. WE WILL MEET OUT THE BUDGET AUTHORITY AS NEEDED OVERTIME. SO THERE ARE STRUCTURAL WAYS TO ADJUST THAT AS WELL. >>WHAT YOU HAVE IN THIS ITEM IS THE OPPOSITE OF THE TENANT IMPROVEMENTS AND EXCEPTIONS ORDINANCE. PHYSICALLY A PROJECT THAT AHEAD OF THE TECHNICAL AUTHORITY. HERE THE TECHNICAL, THE AUTHORITY HAS BEEN PROVIDED BUT THE PROJECTS HAVEN’T KEPT PACE. >>THE NEXT LARGE ITEM, I WOULD JUST LIKE TO HIGHLIGHT IS A SEVEN POINT THROUGH MILLION- DOLLAR INCREASE FROM THE 2018 MULTIPURPOSE, LTG O. THAT IS A LIMITED TAX GENERAL OBLIGATION BOND FUND. THESE ARE MONIES FROM A BOND THAT ARE AFFORDABLE HOUSING LOANS. THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING LOANS HAVE BEEN AWARDED, HOWEVER THEY COULD NOT BE ENCUMBERED IN THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM UNTIL THE LOANS CLOSE. THIS JUST THAT MONEY FORWARD UNTIL THE PROCESS IS COMPLETE. >>THANK YOU. >>WE HAVE 2.8 MILLION-DOLLAR INCREASE IN FAS FOR SEATTLE MUNICIPAL TOWER LAND LEASE. AND SO FAS, THE CITY OWNS THE SEATTLE INVISIBLE TOWER, HOWEVER THE CITY DOES NOT OWN THE LAND UNDERNEATH. THE STATE OF WASHINGTON DOES. SO THIS PARTICULAR LEASE TECHNICALLY EXPIRED IN 2017. WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF RENEGOTIATING THE ACTUAL ANNUAL LEASE RATE. IT WILL GO UP, WE KNOW THAT. I UNDERSTAND THAT THE BUDGET IS SIZED TO EVENTUALLY MAKE THOSE PAYMENTS. HOWEVER, UNTIL THE INK IS DRY, WE HAVE IT FINALIZED AND WE ARE PAYING THE OLD LEASE AMOUNT. THIS RESERVES THE AUTHORITY TO PAY THOSE RETROACTIVE TRUE PAYMENTS WHEN WE SIGNED THE LEASE. >>THE NEXT IS A TO MILLION- DOLLAR INCREASED CHILD CARE CONSTRUCTION WITH A CHILD CARE BONUS. AND AN INCREASE TO COMPLETE THE CENTRAL LIBRARY MATERIALS HANDLED IN THE SYSTEM. >>DO WE KNOW WITH THE $2 MILLION IS GOING FOR THE CHILD CARE FACILITY CAPITAL? >>I BELIEVE THERE ARE SPECIFIC PROJECTS THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED AND OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD I CAN’T TELL YOU WHAT THEY ARE. >>IT IS QUALIFYING BUILDINGS IN DOWNTOWN AND UNION AREAS OF THE CITY? >>I BELIEVE THERE IS A FUND BALANCE. IT IS PART OF THE BONUS. PEOPLE PAY INTO THE FUND. AND WE ARE CONSTANTLY LOOKING FOR PROJECTS THAT COULD BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE USE OF THE DOLLARS. THE NARRATIVE HERE IS THAT THEY WERE IDENTIFIED IN 2018. AND APPROPRIATIONS WERE MADE AND THEY PUT WORK NOT COMPLETE. BUT WE CAN GET YOU THE DETAILS ON THIS PROJECT. >>WE WILL BE TALKING MORE ABOUT THAT FOR THE UPCOMING BUDGET. THANK YOU FOR HIGHLIGHTING THIS. >>SO THANK YOU. I WILL MOVE OFF INTO THE NEXT ITEM. UNLESS THERE ARE ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS. THIS IS ACTUALLY AGENDA ITEM NUMBER SIX. WHICH RELATES TO COUNSEL BILL 119574. THIS IS THE COMPETENCE OF GRANT ACCEPTANCE ORDINANCE AND SO THIS ACTUALLY HAS A RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SUPPLEMENTAL ORDINANCE THAT WE WILL DISCUSS. SOON. ON THE AGENDA. WHAT THIS DOES IS, WHEN A THIRD PARTY WANTS TO GIVE THE CITY MONEY TO DO A THING, WE ACTUALLY HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE FORMAL PROCESS OF ACCEPTING THAT MONEY. SO THAT IS WHAT THIS ORDINANCE DOES. IT HAS $3.7 MILLION WORTH OF GRANTS THAT ARE COMING IN FROM A VARIETY OF THIRD PARTIES THAT I WILL RUN THROUGH QUICKLY. SO THE TRICK IS, THIS DOESN’T ACTUALLY SPEND THE MONEY. THIS JUST ACCEPTS THE GRANTS. IT IS A TWO-STEP PROCESS IN THE SECOND STEP WE WILL GET TO WITH THE SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET. >>SO HIGHLIGHTS. THERE ARE $2 MILLION FROM THE STATE AND RECREATION CONSERVATION OFFICE. TO THE PARK FUND. FOR A NUMBER OF PROJECTS, INCLUDING $1 MILLION FOR THE MARINA. 855,004 CONSTRUCTION WORK ON A FLOATING AND BOARDWALK TRAIL ON FOSTER ISLAND. $200,000 TO COMPLETE FINAL DESIGNS FOR SHORELINE RESTORATION AT LLAMA BEACH PARK. $773,000 FROM THE STATE HERITAGE CAPITAL PROJECT GRANT, GOING TO CITY LIGHT FOR CONCRETE RESTORATION. THE GEORGETOWN STEAM PLANT. $250,000 FROM THE FEDERAL JUSTICE ASSISTANT GRANT PROGRAM. IT GOES TO AS PDE TO FIND THREE EXISTING CRIME PREVENTION COORDINATORS. THERE IS JUST I HAVE $170,000 FOR TWO GRANT PROGRAMS IN STATE PARKS. GOING TO AS PDE TO SUPPORT MARINE PATROLS AND VOTER EDUCATION CLASSES. $450,000 FROM KING COUNTY YOUTH AND AMATEUR SPORTS. GOING TO THE PARKS AND RECREATION FUND FOR PLAYGROUND AND SYNTHETICS HER AND A PLAYFIELD CONSTRUCTION. THERE IS $25,000 FROM KING COUNTY CONSERVATION DISTRICT BEING GIVEN TO THE OFFICE OF SUSTAINABILITY AND ENVIRONMENT FOR A FRESH BOX PROGRAM. DROWNED IT OUT, $21,000 FROM THE ASSOCIATION OF SHERIFFS AND POLICE CHIEFS GOING TO AS PDE FOR SCANNERS AND PRINTERS TO BE USED BY THE HARBOR AND TRAFFIC UNITS. >>A TOTAL OF $3.7 MILLION OF GRANTS? >>THAT IS CORRECT. >>VERY GOOD. THAT SEEMS LIKE A PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD ONE. >>IT IS FAIRLY STRAIGHTFORWARD. ALL OF THE ACTUAL PREPARATIONS WILL BE COVERED AND THE NEXT ONE TALK ABOUT. >>VERY GOOD. >>OKAY. SO NOW WE WILL BE TALKING AGENDA ITEM NUMBER THREE. >>WE ARE HAPPY THAT THINGS ARE MOVING ALONG IN SUCH A NICE WAY. THANK YOU. >>GREAT. SO THIS IS THE LARGEST PIECE OF LEGISLATION WE WILL TALK ABOUT TODAY. AND IT IS A BELT 119575, WHICH IS THE FIRST ACTUAL SUPPLEMENTAL BUDGET ADJUSTMENTS FOR 2019. SO WHERE THE EXCEPTIONS AND CARRYFORWARDS, WHERE THE LINKAGE BETWEEN THE 2018 AND 2010, THIS IS PURE NEW ADS FOR THE 2019 BUDGET. THE TOTAL INCREASE THAT IS COVERED BY THE LEGISLATION IS $72 MILLION. 6.9 OF WHICH IS IN THE GENERAL FUND. AND AGAIN, TO KIND OF HARKEN BACK TO THE LAST BILL, $3.7 MILLION OF THAT IS ACTUALLY GRANTS THAT WE CAN ACCEPT AND SPEND. A LITTLE SHY OF HALF MILLION DOLLARS OF THAT IS IN THE GENERAL FUND. OF THE PROPOSED TOTAL 72 MILLION-DOLLAR INCREASE, 19.5 IS BACKED BY NEW REVENUE. NEW NON-GRANT REVENUE. THESE INCLUDE INTERFUND TRANSFERS AND REIMBURSEMENTS AND FEE REVENUE. >>ON THIS POINT I WOULD HIGHLIGHT IT IS NOT OBVIOUS HERE. I CAN SHOW MY MATH BUT WE AS PART OF THE OVERALL BUDGET PROCESS, WE INSTRUCTED THE DEPARTMENTS TO KEEP THE REQUEST FOR NEW GENERAL FUND SUPPORT, NEW NEWS OF EXISTING FUNDS TO AN ABSOLUTE MINIMUM. IT IS CONSISTENT WITH THE MESSAGE THAT THE 2020 ENDORSED BUDGET IS A BUDGET WE INTEND TO DELIVER. TO THE COUNCIL. THE REVENUE PICTURE HAS NOT CHANGED SIGNIFICANTLY AT THIS POINT. WE ARE WAITING FOR THE NEW FORECAST IN THE NEXT MONTHS. BUT ALTHOUGH THERE IS $7 MILLION IN THE GENERAL FUND, MOST, ALL OF ABOUT HALF MILLION DOLLARS IS BACKED BY RESERVES WE HAD STORED. MONIES BEING TRANSFERRED FROM OTHER CITY DEPARTMENTS. OVERALL, THE NET ADDITION IS IN THE ORDER OF HALF MILLION DOLLARS OF GENERAL FUND THAT HAD NOT PREVIOUSLY AND COMMITTED THAT WOULD BE ENOUGH AS WE GO THROUGH. I CAN HIGHLIGHT WITH THOSE PACIFIC ASKS ARE. WE WERE FROM WITH THE DEPARTMENT ABOUT THE NEED TO PRESERVE THOSE RESOURCES TO ADDRESS 2020 ISSUES. >>SO NOW I WILL JUST WALK THROUGH SIMILAR TO PRIOR BILLS. JUST THE HIGHLIGHTS. COVERING THOSE NOTEWORTHY ITEMS. >>YOU ARE ON PAGE 5 NOW? >>I AM ON PAGE 4. >>PROBABLY THE MIDDLE OF THE WAY THROUGH. >>PAGE 4. >>SO I WILL START WITH THE GENERAL FUND. THE ADJUSTMENTS. SO WE HAVE A $622,000 INCREASE GOING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS. THIS WILL FUND OUTREACH AND ENGAGEMENT COLLABORATION WITH SDOT. LOOKING AT NINE SDOT CAPITAL OBJECTS. IT IS A PILOT PROGRAM. THERE IS A $520,000 INCREASE IN THE LAW DEPARTMENT DEALING WITH RENEGOTIATIONS. AND THIS WILL BE FUNDED WITH REIMBURSEMENTS FROM THIS GROUP. THERE ARE A FEW ITEMS COVERED WITH SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX REVENUES. THESE ARE REVENUES COMING IN HIGHER THAN FORECASTED. THEY INCLUDE $1.2 MILLION INCREASES IN THE HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT. IF YOU THINK FACILITY IMPROVEMENT. >>REALLY QUICK, THIS IS TECHNICALLY FROM THE GENERAL FUND EVEN THOUGH WE CAN CONSIDER IT INDICATED REVENUE. IT IS NOT IN MY MATH WHEN I DESCRIBED THE HALF-MILLION. WE SAW AN OPPORTUNITY, THERE WERE UNUSED RESOURCES FROM PREVIOUS YEARS OF THE SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX. AS YOU KNOW, ONE OF THE ELIGIBLE USES IS ACCESS TO FOOD. INVESTMENTS IN FOOD BANKS. BUT WE ARE SPENDING HERE IS UNANTICIPATED REVENUES. THEY ARE THERE ONE TIME. THOSE ARE THINGS A CUMULATIVELY THAT WE DIDN’T EXPECT. WE DON’T SEE THEM AS ONGOING. WE HAD THIS ONE TIME RESOURCE. WE HAVE BEEN APPROACHED BY SEVERAL FOOD BANKS WHO HAD SOMEONE TIME CAPITAL LEADS. SO THERE WAS A REALLY GOOD MATCH HERE BETWEEN ONE TIME RESOURCES THAT WERE DEDICATED TO FOOD ACCESS AND SOME REQUEST FROM OUR LONG-STANDING PARTNERS IN THE FOOD DISTRIBUTION BUSINESS IF YOU WILL. SO THERE WAS DIRECT ALLOCATION TO SEVERAL SPECIFIC FOOD BANKS ALSO SOME OF THE MONEY THAT WOULD BE MALE IT MADE AVAILABLE TO OTHERS TO APPLY FOR. WE JUST WANT TO PROVIDE FUNDING TO THOSE WHO ASKED, RECOGNIZING THAT OTHERS MIGHT HAVE NEEDS AS WELL. AS LONG AS THEY ARE ONE TIME CAPITAL NEEDS, I CAN IMAGINE TENANT IMPROVEMENTS. PERHAPS A VEHICLE PURCHASE, SOMETHING LIKE THAT. THEY WOULD ALSO BE ELIGIBLE. >>WHAT IS THE TOTAL FOR THAT? >>TOTAL OF $1.2 MILLION. $40,000 UNALLOCATED IF I RECALL. I WILL GET YOU THE DETAILS. >>SO $400,000, I AM JUST PREPPING FOR THE EXPECTATION THAT ORGANIZATIONS WILL COME AND BE ASKING FOR THAT MONEY. SO THAT IS PUT ESSENTIALLY IN A RESERVE FOR FOOD BANKS AND OTHERS TO COME IN? >>HSD WILL BE PROVIDING. WE WILL BE REACHING OUT TO THE FOLKS WITH CONTRACTS TO MAKE IT CLEAR WHAT IS AVAILABLE IN THESE TYPES OF OPPORTUNITIES. >>AND WHAT THE LIMITS ARE. >>EXACTLY. >>THANK YOU. >>SO CONTINUING ALONG THAT THREAD OF THE SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX REVENUE, THERE ARE $680,000 TO THE OFFICE OF SUSTAINABILITY AND ENVIRONMENT FOR, TO INCREASE UTILIZATION OF FRESH BOX. ALSO GOING TO OSC IS 489,004 PILOT EFFORTS TO EXPAND ELIGIBILITY FOR FRESH BOX. >>WHAT I’M HEARING YOU SAY IS THAT THE MONEY FROM THE SUITE BEVERAGE TAX IS BEING USED ON THINGS THAT WE SPECIFICALLY SAID WE WERE GOING TO INVEST úIN. FOOD BANKS. >>THESE ARE NEW AND EXPANDED PROGRAMS. WHAT HAPPENED HERE IS THAT THE FRESH BOX PROGRAM HAS BEEN PROVEN TO BE POPULAR AND SUCCESSFUL THAN WE HAD THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. AND THERE ARE RESOURCES AVAILABLE. GIVEN WHAT WE SEE, INCREASING REVENUES GOING FORWARD, THE SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX FUND, THE REASON WE CAN SIX STAINLESS AS WELL. >>SO I WILL MOVE NOW TO ANOTHER KIND OF SET OF ADJUSTMENTS. THESE WOULD BE INCREASES TO THE SEATTLE POLICE DEPARTMENT TO PROVIDE SERVICES FOR OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES. INCLUDING $81,000 FROM MARINE PATROL FOR HUNTS POINT AND MEDINA. $100,000 FOR TRAFFIC CONTROL AT THE COLEMAN FERRY TERMINAL. AND THEN $232,000 FOR TRAFFIC CONTROL ASSOCIATED WITH THE ALASKA PROJECT. >>I DON’T WANT TO GET TOO DEEP IN THIS BUT I CAN ANTICIPATE THAT OTHERS OF MY COLLEAGUES WILL WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE HUNT POINT AND MEDINA PAYMENTS. CAN YOU EXPLAIN THAT? WHAT IS THE QUID PRO QUO FOR THIS? >>WE PROVIDE SOME EMERGENCY RESPONSE SERVICE TO THEM. FOR AN AGREEMENT. WE GET COMPENSATED AND I CAN PROVIDE ADDITIONAL DETAILS BUT I WOULD HAVE TO FURTHER RESEARCH. >>THE ESSENTIAL DYNAMIC IS THAT SPD HAS A POLICE BOAT OUT ON LAKE WASHINGTON. THEY ARE WILLING TO RESPOND TO CALLS COME IN FROM OTHER THAN JUST THE LIMIT, THE CITY LIMITS OF SEATTLE. IN EXCHANGE FOR THAT, THE WILLINGNESS TO HAVE CONTRACTUAL ARRANGEMENTS. >>SOAP MEDINA AND HUNTS POINT IS PROVIDING $81,000 TO THE CITY OF SEATTLE FOR THE SERVICES THAT ARE BEING PROVIDED TO THEM? >>YOU CAN APPRECIATE IT IS MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL. IT WOULDN’T COST YOU FOR THEM TO HAVE THEIR OWN STAFF THOUGH. YOU HAVE THE VOTE OUT THERE ANYWAY. >>IT HELPS US THE FREIGHT THE COST. >>SO AN UNRELATED ITEM BUT ALSO IN THE GENERAL FUND IS $775,000 TO THE SEATTLE CITY COURT. THE MUNICIPAL COURT. THIS IS USING MONIES FROM THE STATE ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE OF THE COURTS TRIAL COURT IMPROVEMENT ACCOUNT. IT FUNDS IMPROVEMENT EFFORTS. >>I WILL FIND SOMETHING HERE. >>THESE ARE MONEY THAT ARE DISTRIBUTED FROM THE ADMINISTERED OF OFFICE OF THE COURSE. THE LOCAL COURTS, WE HAVE ACCUMULATED AMOUNTS TOTALING $775,000 THAT IS NOW BEING DIRECTED TOWARDS OUR SJ I TRAINING AT THE COURT. >>IF I COULD SAY A BIT MORE ABOUT THIS ONE. THIS IS SPECIFIC REQUEST FROM THE INVISIBLE COURT ITSELF. WE ARE IN LARGE PART PASSING AND HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW IT AS WELL. A LITTLE MORE DETAIL, $40,000 IN OUR SJ I TRAINING. $250,000 TO DO STRATEGIC PLANNING AND COMMITTEE OUTREACH. INRESPONSE TO CONCERNS ABOUT PROBATIONARY SERVICES AND OTHER ISSUES THAT WOULD BE, THE GOAL IS TO GO INTO THE COMMUNITY AND GET A BETTER SENSE OF THE MUNICIPAL COURT AND IT CAN WORK BETTER FOR THE COMMUNITY. ACTUALLY $135,000 TO DO AN EVALUATION OF PROBATIONARY SERVICES SPECIFICALLY. ALSO $350,000 TO DO SOME SPACE RECONFIGURATION AT THE COURTHOUSE. THOSE ARE INDIVIDUAL ITEMS WITHIN THAT 775. THE COURT CAN ACTUALLY GIVE YOU MORE DETAILS AS WELL AS WE CAN. >>I’M SURE WE WILL BE TALKING MORE ABOUT THAT. THANK YOU. >>SO THE NEXT INCREASED NOTE IS THE TWO AND $50,000 INCREASE IN THE LAW DEPARTMENT. THIS RELATES TO A BUDGET REDUCTION THAT WAS SCHEDULED FOR THIS YEAR. THIS RELATES TO, IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A SALARY SAVINGS CUT. HOWEVER, THE LAW DEPARTMENT REPORTS THAT THEY DON’T HAVE EFFICIENT VACANCIES TO MEET THIS CUT. SO THIS PROVIDES THE RESOURCES TO PAY THE SALARY FOR THE YEAR. NOT MAKE THE CUT. >>THIS IS A SPECIFIC REQUEST OF THE CITY ATTORNEY. WE REVIEWED AND UNDERSTAND THE DYNAMICS. AGAIN, I WAS DESCRIBE AND HALF MILLION DOLLARS IN EXPENDITURES. THIS IS A SHARE OF THAT. THIS IS THE NEW MONEY WE WOULD OTHERWISE COUNT. THE REDUCTION HERE. AT THIS POINT I DON’T THINK IT IS REALISTIC FOR THE DEPARTMENT TO BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE THIS. >>EXPLAINED THAT $250,000. IT IS GOING BACK FOR HOW MANY POSITIONS? >>IT IS, IT GIVES THEM THE FLEXIBILITY TO PROVIDE APPROPRIATE COMPENSATION FOR MORE THAN ONE POSITION. IT IS JUST TRYING TO MANAGE OVERALL COMPENSATION STRUCTURE WITHIN THE OFFICE. WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR POSITION OF AUTHORITY. >>UP THROUGH SOME OF THE HIGH PERFORMERS AS AN EXAMPLE? >>I WOULD DEFER TO THE CITY ATTORNEY. IN TERMS OF, THE STRATEGY AND COMPENSATION PHILOSOPHY. >>I THINK, YET. THE CITY ATTORNEY WOULD BE THE BEST SOURCE FOR THAT KIND OF PHILOSOPHICAL APPROACH. THE IDEAS THAT THERE WAS EFFECTIVELY A REDUCTION PUT INTO THE BUDGET FOR THIS YEAR LAST YEAR. AND IF THAT IS LEFT IN PLACE, THEY WILL HAVE LESS MONEY FOR ALL PURPOSES. BUT THEY HAVE INDICATED IS BEING AN ORGANIZATION THEY ARE, THE MOST LOGICAL PLACE THAT CAN GO IS SALARIES. UNLESS THEY ACTUALLY ARE FORCED TO MAKE THE REDUCTIONS, THEY WILL NOT NECESSARILY BE CLEAR WHAT IT IS THAT THEY WOULD DO OR WHAT THEY WOULD SPEND LESSER AMOUNT SON. >>I WILL ALSO REACH OUT TO THE CITY ATTORNEY HOLMES ABOUT THIS GOING FORWARD. BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY MORE SPECIFICS BETWEEN NOW AND WHEN WE VOTE IT WOULD BE HELPFUL. >>OF COURSE. >>SO MOVING DOWN THE LIST, THERE IS A $219,000 INCREASE TO THE OFFICE OF ECONOMIC INVOLVEMENT. SO WHAT THIS DOES IS IT GIVES THEM THE ABILITY, WELL, THERE WAS AN AUDIT’S IN THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT PROGRAM IN 2017 THAT FOUND THAT MONEY THAT WAS SPENT FROM THE CDBG GRANT, THE ONLY ONE IN SEATTLE, DIDN’T MEET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CDBG MONEY. AND SO THAT HAD TO BE REPAID BY OED, WHICH THEY DID SO. HOWEVER, THAT LEAVES A HOLE IN THE BUDGET FOR 2019. THIS BACK FILLS THAT PAYMENT. >>FOR OUR OFFICE OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT? THAT IS WHERE THE MONEY IS BEING BACKFILLED? >>LAST YEAR BUDGET WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TIMES THAT I HAD SEEN THIS. THE RESULT OF THE WHOLESALE REQUEST FOR PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY NONPROFITS, THAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR MONEY AND THEY ASKED THAT IT NOT BE GIVEN CDBG MONEY BECAUSE THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT HAD VARIOUS STRINGS ATTACHED TO IT, WHETHER IT WAS A REPORTING REQUIREMENT OR HOW THEY GOT THE MONEY AND THERE WERE REAL REQUESTS LIKE DON’T DO THAT TO US. SO I HOPE THAT GOING FORWARD WE CAN GET THAT IN ADVANCE. >>THIS IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT IN THAT THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMET LOT GRANT, THEY ARE TWO COLORS OF BLACK GRANT MONEY. ONE IS PROGRAMS AND ONE IS PROJECTS. AND THE PROGRAMMATIC SPENDING IS MORE CONSTRAINED. WE USE IT IN HUMAN SERVICES. AND SO WHAT HAPPENED HERE IS WE HAD THOUGHT THAT THE OED WAS APPROPRIATELY CHARACTERIZED AS A PROJECT RATHER THAN A SERVICE. NOT A PROGRAM. SAID WE HAD BEEN ATTRIBUTING TO THE PROJECT SIDE OF THE IMMUNITY BLOCK GRANT. THE AUDIT REVEALED FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT’S PERSPECTIVE, IT WAS ACTUALLY A SERVICE. SO WE HAD TO SUCCESS AND THEN WE WOULD ACTUALLY WORK ON, WE ARE NOW CONSIDERING HOW, TO MOVE ON WITH THIS ISSUE GOING FORWARD. OED WITH USING COMMUNITY BUT GRANT MONEY FOR WHAT ARE NOW CHARACTERIZED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AS SERVICES IN A NUMBER OF AREAS THEN WE HAD PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT. WE CAN’T USE THAT FUNDING SOURCE FOR THOSE PROGRAMS ANYMORE. WE ARE LOOKING AT BOTH ALTERNATIVE WAYS OF FUNDING AND IF THERE ARE OTHER ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO STRUCTURE THE PROGRAM. IN ADDITION, THERE IS IN THE CONTEXT OF CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS, FOR INSTANCE, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, EVEN IF YOU ARE APPROPRIATELY CHARACTERIZED, THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PUBLICATIONS THAT PREVAILING WAGES AND BIDDING REQUIREMENTS DO MAKE THE MONEY TRICKY TO USE. PARTICULARLY IF YOU ARE PRETTY FAR INTO A PROJECT. IF YOU KNOW ABOUT THE RESTRICTIONS, THEY ARE EASIER TO WORK WITH THAN IF YOU PART WAYS. >>THANK YOU. >>ALL RIGHT, TOM? >>WE WILL MOVE TO OTHER FUNDS. I WILL MOVE OFF THE GENERAL FUND. THEY ARE A FAIRLY SIZABLE ADJUSTMENT. $30 MILLION INCREASE IN THE OFFICE OF HOUSING. SO THE HOUSING SUPPORT PROGRAM FUND. WHAT THIS IS IS MONEY THAT WAS FROM THE 2018 SALE OF THE CONVENTION CENTER. >>I WILL NEED YOU TO DIRECT ME BACK TO THE MEMO. I AM ON PAGE 7 OF NINE AT THE END OF YOUR CDBG. COULD YOU TELL US WHAT NUMBER IT IS? >>I DON’T HAVE THAT, I’M SORRY. >>SO IT IS IN ATTACHMENT A? >>IT IS ON PAGE 5. >>PAGE 5 OF THE MEMO? >>PAGE 5 ON THE MEMO. THIS ONE. >>GOING BACK. >>ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU. >>SO THERE WERE COME A THERE ARE AWARDS. GIVEN FOR THE HOUSING SUPPORT PROGRAM. IN 2018. HOWEVER, THE MONIES WEREN’T ACTUALLY DISPERSED IN THAT YEAR. THE MONEY WILL BE DISPERSED THIS YEAR. IT PROVIDES THE APPROPRIATION AUTHORITY TO DO THAT. >>THERE ARE A NUMBER OF LOOK BENEFITS PAYMENTS THAT WERE ASSOCIATED WITH THE CONVENTION CENTER. THESE HOUSING DOLLARS ARE SIGNIFICANT. ALSO ON THE SDOT SIDE, THERE ARE PAYMENT ITEMS. WE DON’T HAVE TO TOUCH ON THEM. THE CONVENTION CENTER AGREEMENT INCLUDED A NUMBER OF PUBLIC BENEFITS. >>THAT WAS A BIG DEAL. BUT TO BE END UP? $48 MILLION? >>YEAH. I WAS JUST ASKED FOR THAT. I DON’T HAVE IT OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD. >>THERE ARE A NUMBER OF IMPROVEMENTS REGARDING THE STREETSCAPE ELSEWHERE IN THESE ORDINANCES. THERE ARE APPROPRIATION OF SOME OF THOSE DOLLARS AS WELL. THE PROJECT IS MOVING FORWARD AND IS UNDER ACTIVE CONSTRUCTION. >>I KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN A BIG PART OF THIS. I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT A DIFFERENCE THIS IS MAKING. THE CONVENTION CENTER IS MOVING FORWARD BUT WE HAVE THE 1.5 THAT WAS ALLOCATED FOR THE LID I-5 DESIGN. AND THEN THE WORK. IT WAS $10 MILLION FOR THE PARK. THOSE ARE MAKING A BIG DIFFERENCE DOWNTOWN. >>I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT. >>I THINK THE 1.5 LID IS AMONG THE ITEMS CARRIED FORWARD AS WELL. ANYWAY. JUST TO GIVE YOU A SENSE. THERE IS A NUMBER OF ELEMENTS ASSOCIATED WITH THE CONVENTION CENTER. >>GREAT, THANK YOU. >>OKAY. WE ARE BACK TO PAGE 5 WITH WEATHER AND HOME REPAIR. >>I AM BACK ON TRACK. IN SYNC WITH THE MEMO. SO THERE’S 1.64, 1.6 MILLION FOR HOUSING SUPPORT PROGRAM FUNDS. THIS IS TECHNICAL CORRECTION. TO THE OFFICE OF HOUSING PROGRAM. THIS IS FUNDED WITH PREVIOUSLY RECEIVED GRANT REVENUE. THERE IS 275,000 IN THE OFFICE OF HOUSING FOR THE MULTIFAMILY TAX EXEMPTION PROGRAM. THIS IS ACTUALLY WORKING WITH THE TECHNOLOGY, DEALING WITH FACILITATING THE USE OF DATA AND THE APPLICATIONS FOR THE PROGRAM. THIS IS FUNDED WITH PROGRAM FEES. SO THERE IS A LARGE CHUNK OF SEATTLE I.T. INCREASES IN THE INITIATIVES PROGRAM. THIS IS SIMILAR TO THE FAS PROGRAM AND THE PATH OR AUTHORITY AND THE EARLIER PASS- THROUGH AUTHORITY THAT I TOUCHED ON. SO THERE IS A SET OF PROJECTS COVERED IN THE MEMO THAT ARE ON BEHALF OF THE DEPARTMENT I.T. IS WORKING ON. THIS PROVIDES THE AUTHORITY TO DO THOSE. >>IS THIS PART OF THIS? >>IT IS COMING. >>I’M SORRY, TOM. I JUST WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT THAT THERE IS ANOTHER GRANT OF $300,000 THAT THESE — >>WE DON’T HAVE TO ACCEPT THOSE GRANTS. THEY WENT DIRECTLY TO THE LEAD. WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING THAT. >>BE, THEY HAVE THE MONEY BUT THERE ARE ADDITIONAL I.T. REQUEST TO HELP IMPLEMENT THE GRANT, WHICH IS PART OF THE LEAD PROGRAM BECAUSE WHAT WE HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH FOR YEARS IS AROUND THIS DATA SHARING AND MAKING SURE WE HAVE THE RIGHT DATA. THAT WE ARE WORKING WITH KING COUNTY AND THE LEAD PROGRAM. SO I THINK THAT WILL BE AN AMENDMENT THAT WE JUST DISCUSSED. SO WE WILL COME BACK TO THAT. I JUST WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT THAT SEATTLE I.T. IS NOT DONE YET. >>WHAT WE WILL BE DISCUSSING IS THE BULK OF THE AMENDMENTS ON NEXT FRIDAY, THE NIGHT. BUT IT IS GOOD TO HAVE A PREVIEW WHEN POSSIBLE. >>COMING SOON. >>YES. IF ANYONE WANTS TO HIGHLIGHT AMENDMENTS AT THE END OF TOM’S THING WE CAN DO THAT. IF THEY WANT TO WAIT, THAT IS FINE TOO. >>SO NOW I WILL MOVE TO PAGE 6 OF THE MEMO. >>SO JUST TO TOUCH REALLY QUICKLY ON CUSTOMER REQUESTED TENANT IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM. PREVIOUSLY WHAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE EXCEPTIONS ORDINANCE. CHEWING THINGS UP WITH WHAT HAPPENED LAST YEAR. THIS IS ACTUALLY ADDING STUFF THAT HAS BEEN REQUESTED FOR 2019. THERE IS A $5.4 MILLION INCREASE IN FAS TO DO THAT WORK. AND AGAIN, THE FUNDING THAT HAS BEEN APPROPRIATED TO THE INDIVIDUAL DEPARTMENTS AS PART OF THE 2019 BUDGET. WE WAIT WILL WE SEE WHATEVER FAS IS ABLE TO DO. TO INCREASE THE AUTHORITY AS THEY ARE READY TO MOVE ON. >>THERE IS A THREE HALF- MILLION DOLLAR INCREASE IN THE TRANSPORTATION FUND. THAT IS INCLUDED. IT SUPPORTS CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS. THE NORTH 34th STREET AFFECTED BY KLEIN OF THE MELROSE PROTECTED BIKE LANE. THESE ARE BOTH FUNDED BY FEDERAL GRANTS. >>THERE IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING GOING IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. AND IT IS THE $720,000 REDUCTION IN THE SPD BODY WORN CAMERA PROJECT. AND SO ACTUALLY, IN THE 19-21 BUDGET, CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM, THERE IS A SHIFT OF THIS AMOUNT FROM WHAT WAS INTENDED TO BE A BODY WORN CAMERA TO VIDEO. THE IN CAR VIDEO PROJECT RECEIVED A $721 INCREASE. THE BODY WORN PROGRAM DID NOT GET DECREASED AT THAT TIME. IT HAS TWO SIDES OF THAT TRANSFER UP. >>WELCOME, COUNCILMEMBER GONZALEZ. >> I APOLOGIZE FOR MY TARDINESS. >>YOU HAVE A FEW OTHER THINGS ON YOUR PLATE. >>JUST TO GIVE YOU A HEADS UP, WE ARE ON PAGE 6 OF TOM’S GOOD MEMO. AND WE ARE LOOKING AT ITEM NUMBER FIVE. >>THANK YOU. >>SO I HAVE ACTUALLY TALKED ABOUT SEVERAL OF THE THINGS ON ITEM 6. SOME OF THE GENERAL FUND INCREASES. IF YOU MOVED PAGE 7, HALFWAY THROUGH THE PAGE, THAT WILL CATCH US UP. THERE IS A $6.9 MILLION INCREASE IN THE 2002 LEVY MULTIPURPOSE FUND. THIS GO TO THE OFFICE OF HOUSING, SUPPORT AND CREATION OF HOUSING UNITS FOR FIRST-TIME BUYERS. THE FUNDING FOR THIS IS ACTUALLY FROM THE UNSPENT BALANCES FROM PRIOR YEARS. >>THERE IS A $425,000 INCREASE IN THE SEATTLE ARENA FUND. WHAT THIS IS IS TO REPAY AMOUNTS TO SEATTLE UNIVERSITY AND THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON FOR THE LACK OF USE OF THE KEY ARENA WHILE IT IS BEING WORKED ON. THERE WERE PLANS TO HAVE SEATTLE GAMES. >>WE WERE CLEAR ON THAT. CAN I GO TO SIX .9 MILLION ON THE SUBSIDIES TO CREATE AFFORDABLE UNITS FOR FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYERS? IS THIS THAT 6.9 MILLION IT GOING TO OH TO BE SPENT IN 2020? >>IN 2019. SO I CAN GIVE YOU MORE DETAILS. SO THERE PROTECTING CLOSINGS IN 2019 FOR’S ESTATE HOMES, NINE HOMES AT THAT YEAH, TOWNHOUSES. SIX HOMES IN THE CITY. AND THEN THEY WILL PURCHASE TWO PROPERTIES FROM CITY LAKE THAT ARE A TOTAL OF EIGHT HOMES EACH THAT THEY WOULD SEND MAKE AVAILABLE. THIS IS LOW INCOME HOMEOWNERSHIP PROGRAM. COMING TO FRUITION. THEY HAVE BEEN FUNDING HISTORICALLY AND NOW IS THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEPLOY RESOURCES. >>EXCELLENT. THANK YOU. >>SO WE ARE ON THE HOME STRETCH. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF NET ZEROS. NO FISCAL IMPACT TRANSFERS. BUT I CHOSE TO HIGHLIGHT A FEW OF THEM FOR YOU. THEY TOUCH ON FINANCE IN GENERAL. THERE IS A $500,000 TO HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENTS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY PROJECT. THERE IT IS $250,000 GOING TO HST FOR THE PROCESS TO START A LOOK PILOT PROGRAM TO DO WITH RESETTLING INDIGENOUS PEOPLE AFTER INCARCERATION. ALSO IN THE AREA OF NET ZERO TRANSFERS, THERE IS $480,000 THAT IS TRANSFERRED FROM THE CITY AUDITOR TO HST. SO THIS IS SWEETENED BEVERAGE TAX MONEY. IT IS HOUSED IN THE CITY AUDITOR’S OFFICE RIGHT NOW. HOWEVER, A PORTION OF THAT EVALUATION WORK WILL BE DONE BY THE PROGRAMS SAVING THE MONEY. THAT IS WHAT THIS REPRESENTS. AND SO THOSE ARE THE PREPARATION CHANGES. A NUMBER OF POSITION CHANGES. >>26 NEW FULL-TIME POSITIONS? >>CORRECT. SO HALF OF THEM, RIGHT OFF THE TOP, THEY ARE IN THE DEPARTMENT OF CONSTRUCTION AND INSPECTIONS TO DO, TO WORK ON THE HIGH LEVEL OF CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY AND MASTER PERMITTING PROCESSES. I BELIEVE THE INTENT IS TO SUNSET THOSE POSITIONS IN 2022 AS STATED. IN THE LEGISLATION. >>YOU MIGHT RECALL, WE PROVIDED A MEMO TO THE COUNCIL INDICATING THAT WE WERE MOVING ON THESE WITH THE EMERGENCY POSITION OF AUTHORITY. THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THERE IS A SHARED INTEREST IN KEEPING THE PERMITS MOVING. THIS USES PERMIT DOLLARS AND WE SUNSET THE POSITIONS SO IF AND WHEN, PRESUMABLY WHEN A PERMIT DECLINES, WE CAN MOVE THE POSITIONS OFF THE BOOKS AS APPROPRIATE. >>WE KEEP EXPECTING THAT. >>NOT WANTING IT. BUT AGAIN, THIS IS RECOGNITION THAT IT HAS NOT HAPPENED YET. WE STILL HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO MOVE PERMITS. >>THANK YOU. >>SO I CAN SPEAK TO A COUPLE OF THE OTHER THINGS AS WELL. IT MIGHT BE HELPFUL. SO ON THE SPD SIDE, THE REQUEST FOR A POSITION TO ASSIST WITH INTERNET CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN’S UNIT. REQUEST FOR 2 POSITIONS RELATED TO PUBLIC DISCLOSURE REQUESTS. SPD RECEIVES A HUGE VOLUME OF PUBLIC DISCLOSURE REQUESTS. THEY HAVE BEEN MEETING THIS NEED WITH VERY STAFF BUT IT IS A REAL AND ONGOING NEED. I RECALL IT IS WELL MORE THAN HALF OF THE TOTAL PUBLIC DISCLOSURE REQUEST TO COME TO THE CITY. THEY GO TO SPD. IT IS ALSO A POSITION, I TAKE IT BACK. THERE ARE COUPLE OF POSITIONS. >>THERE IS ONE. >>IS LABELED AS THE HR. THE CIVILIAN POSITION IN THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. THAT IS SOMETHING WE NEGOTIATED IF I RECALL. SO EEO COMPLAINTS. NOW TO BE HANDLED THAT WAY. A COUPLE OF POSITIONS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES. RELATED TO THE NEW INVESTIGATIONS AND UNITS. I WILL TAKE ON THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR REPLACING THE INVESTIGATIONS FOR THE CITY OVERALL. >>THIS IS NOT THE OFFICE OF THE ON BUT? >>IT IS NOT THAT. YOU MIGHT RECALL THAT TO SIGNIFICANT MOVES IN TERMS OF EMPLOYEE PROTECTIONS AND AGAIN, THIS CASE INVESTIGATION THAT WAS MADE IN THE 2019 BUDGET. ONE WAS THE CREATION OF THE OFFICE OF THE EMPLOYEE ON BUT IF YOU WELL. THAT IS DESIGNED TO BE A UNIT THAT IS INDEPENDENT OF SCH R. IT IS INDEPENDENT OF ANY OTHER PART OF THE CITY. THE EMPLOYEES HAVE THE PLACE TO GO TO HAVE A SAFE CONVERSATION AND GET ADVICE FOR THEMSELVES. THE OFFICE IS NOW OPEN AND WE HAD AN OPEN HOUSE THIS WEEK OR EARLY LAST. IN ADDITION, THE BUDGETS PROVIDED FOR A SHIFT OF WORKPLACE INVESTIGATIONS THAT ARE CONDUCTED BY CITY PERSONNEL. THE PERSONNEL FUNCTIONS. IN THE PAST, INDIVIDUAL DEPARTMENT HAD BEEN DOING THE INVESTIGATIONS WITHIN THE McCONE RANKS IF YOU WELL. WHAT WE DID IN THE BUDGET WAS TO CENTRALIZE AND FUND A FUNCTION IN THE SD HR. THEY WOULD TAKE ON THAT ROLE. SO ANY CONCERN ABOUT CONFLICT INVESTIGATIONS BEING DR. WITHIN THE DEPARTMENT, WE WOULD HAVE THOSE DONE OUTSIDE. WE LOOKED INTO WHETHER THEY COULD BE TRANSFERRING STAFF FROM OTHER DEPARTMENTS TO DO THAT. WHAT WE DISCOVERED IS THAT IN LARGE PART, WE ARE NOT DEDICATING STAFF FROM OTHER DEPARTMENTS TO DO THAT. IT WOULD BE ON A ONE-OFF BASIS. THEY HAD BEEN HIRING OUTSIDE EXPERTISE. IT MAKES SENSE TO CREATE A COUPLE OF POSITIONS IF WE WOULD STAGE THE EFFORT WITH THE GOAL OF HAVING A CENTRALIZED INVESTIGATIVE FUNCTION. AGAIN, WHERE CONFLICTS ARE LESS AN ISSUE. >>GOOD. >>ANYTHING FURTHER ON THIS? >>THE FULL-TIME POSITIONS? >>THE ONLY THING I WOULD FURTHER ADD IS THAT THE BULK OF THESE POSITIONS DON’T ACTUALLY HAVE AN INCREASE IN THE EXPENDITURES. IN MANY CASES, THE BUDGET AUTHORITY ALREADY EXISTS, IT JUST CREATES A POCKET. >>SO WE HAVE MONIES RESERVED? >>IN SIMILAR SITUATIONS, WE HAD BEEN PROVIDING THE FUNCTIONS BY TEMPORARY STAFF. WE BUILD THAT FUNDING INTO THE BUDGETS. THIS RECOGNIZES POTENTIALLY ONGOING BODIES OF WORK. SOME ARE REALIZING WHAT WE MAY HAVE HOPED TO BE TEMPORARY IS ONGOING. THE PDR STAFF, IT TURNS OUT THE REQUESTS ARE NOT DECREASING VOLUME. WE WOULD NEED TO STEP UP TO THE WORK. >>THANK YOU. >>COUNCILMEMBER HERBOLD THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. I WANT TO RETURN TO ATTACHMENT A UNDER SECTION 3. THAT IS ITEM 1.5 AND 1.6. ALLISON HAD A COMMENT OR TWO. >>THEY DIDN’T MAKE IT INTO THE MEMO. THEY ARE SMALLER AMOUNTS BUT I THINK THEY BOTH HAVE LEGAL PURPOSES. I AM GLAD TO SEE WE ARE FUNDING THEM. 1.5 IS HOMELESS CHILDCARE PROGRAMS. 1.6 IS GENDER BASED VIOLENCE PREVENTION’S. >>I DON’T KNOW IF YOU WANT TO TAKE SOME TIME TO HIGHLIGHT THE GOOD WORK? >>THESE ARE AGAIN A COUPLE OF SPECIFIC ADS FROM, THAT WE ARE PROPOSING ON THE GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE SIDE. WE RECEIVED A REQUEST FROM COMMUNITY BASED ORGANIZATIONS AND WITH LIMITED, WE FULFILLED THE GENERAL FUND RESOURCE. A LIMITED AMOUNT IS DESCRIBED HERE. THE GOAL IS TO PROVIDE PROGRAMMING AND CAPACITY BUILDING. FOR USE IN YOUNG ADULTS PREVENTION PROGRAMMING. AND AGAIN, IN DEAL, AND SOME WAYS WE ARE ADDRESSING A TECHNICAL ISSUE OR A TIMING ISSUE WHERE WE HAD A CONTRACT IS A CAN SEE HERE FOR HOMELESS CHILDCARE PROGRAMS THAT RAN TO THE MIDDLE OF THE YEAR. WE DIDN’T HAVE APPROPRIATIONS FOR THE FULL YEAR. SO WE ARE CREATED, CORRECTING THAT. THE FUNDING FOR THIS IS FROM THE FAMILIES LEVY. IT IS NOT A CALL IN GENERAL FUND. RATHER THE USE OF THOSE DEDICATED RESOURCES. >>DID YOU WANT TO ADD ANYTHING TO THAT? >>THE GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE, I THOUGHT IT WAS FANTASTIC THAT THERE IS CULTURALLY SPECIFIC OUTREACH AND EDUCATION. >>THAT WAS THE SPECIFIC ASSET THEY CAME IN. WE RECOGNIZED IT WAS A SHORTFALL. >>THANK YOU. WELL LET’S MOVE ONTO ITEM NUMBER FIVE. IT IS COUNSEL BILL 119576. >>ACTUALLY, SINCE I CAME IN LATE, BEFORE WE MOVE ONTO THE NEXT ITEM, I WANT TO SPEAK TO TWO POTENTIAL AMENDMENTS. >>WE CERTAINLY CAN. I HAD ALSO THOUGHT WE COULD DO THAT AT THE END OF THE PRESENTATION. >>IF YOU WANT TO DO IT. >>IF THAT IS WHAT YOUR PLAN WAS. I DIDN’T HAVE A CHANCE TO CONNECT WITH YOU. >>LET’S KEEP GOING AND WE WILL COME BACK. >>WE WILL PRESERVE TIME. I AM VERY IMPRESSED THAT WE’VE GOTTEN THIS FAR. >>CONVENIENTLY, THIS LAST PIECE, IT WILL BE FAIRLY QUICK. THERE IS NOT A WHOLE LOT GOING ON WITH IT. WHAT THIS IS IS A AGENDA ITEM NUMBER FIVE. IT IS COUNSEL BILL 119 576. THIS IS THE ABANDONMENT CAPITAL AND GRANT ABANDONMENTS. WHAT IT DOES IS IT REDUCES THE 2019 BUDGET FOR NON-LAPSING A PROBATION AUTHORITY OR APPROPRIATION AUTHORITY WE OTHERWISE DON’T NEED. >>WITH THE LAPSING APPROPRIATION AND WHERE IT COMES FROM? >>THE ABUNDANT PORTION OF THE CITY’S BUDGET IS A QUOTE UNQUOTE LAPSE IN A PROBATION. IT ONLY LASTS FOR THE FISCAL YEAR FOR WHICH IT IS GRANTED. WHICH IS WHY EARLIER IN THE MEETING WE DID THINGS AND WE DISCUSSED CARRYFORWARDS. WE ARE USING THAT LAPSE IN A SINGLE YEAR PROBATION AUTHORITY AND TAKING INTO FUTURE YEARS. CAPITAL AND GRANT APPROPRIATIONS IN SOME CASES ARE UNIQUE IN THAT THEY DO NOT LAPSE. THEY EITHER GET FULLY USED UP OR THEY PERSIST UNTIL ACTION IS TAKEN TO DIFFUSE THEM SO TO SPEAK. SO THAT IS WHAT THIS DOES. IT LOOKS AT AREAS IN THE BUDGET WHERE THERE IS PERHAPS MONEY OR AUTHORITY TO SPEND MONEY THAT WE NO LONGER NEED. IT REDUCES THAT AUTHORITY TO CHEW UP OUR REJECTED NEED WITH WHAT OUR PETITIONS ARE. SO JUST IN THE FRAMEWORK OF LOOKING AT THE BIG STUFF, AS AN EXAMPLE OF THIS TYPE OF THING, IT IS A $14.6 MILLION IN THE, 2018 LIMITED GENERAL OBLIGATION BOND. >>ITEM 2.7 ON THE ATTACHMENT. SO THIS IS, THERE WERE GOING TO BE BOND ISSUED FOR THE ELLIOTT PROJECT. HOWEVER, THEY REEVALUATED THE NEEDS AND DON’T ANTICIPATED NEEDING THE AUTHORITY TO ISSUE RESPONSE. THEY ARE REQUESTING TO REDUCE THE APPROPRIATION TO CHEW UP WHAT THEY EXPECTED. SO THERE ARE A NUMBER OF INDIVIDUAL ITEMS IN THIS. BUT THAT IS JUST AN EXAMPLE OF THE TYPE OF THING THAT WE ARE DOING. IT IS REALLY A TECHNICAL CLEANUP. >>THAT IS A 14.5796 18 AS WE SEE IT IN 2.7. IS THAT MONEY THAT THEY HAD PLANNED ON? ARE GOING TO GO TO THE BOND MARKET TO GET THAT 14 MILLION? OR DO THEY HAVE THE 14 MILLION IN THEIR HANDS? >>AS I UNDERSTAND, THERE WAS ACTUALLY NO CASH. IT IS THE FORMER. WE EXPECTED WE WOULD ISSUE BONDS. NOW THE PLANS HAVE CHANGE. WE WILL NOT ISSUE BONDS. >>IT DOES OCCASIONALLY HAPPEN. TO GIVE YOU A SENSE, IF WE HAD SOLD BONDS AND DISCOVERED WE DON’T NEED THEM IN THE FULL AMOUNT, THE STANDARD THING TO DO WOULD BE TO REPROGRAM THEM. WE TEND TO DO A BOND SALE EVERY YEAR. WE HAVE 20 MILLION LEFT OVER FROM LAST ARE THAT WE DIDN’T NEED. IT HAS TO BE USED FOR CAPITAL PURPOSES. WE WERE PLANNING TO ISSUE 60 MILLION THIS YEAR. NOW WE ONLY NEED TO ISSUE THIS. IT IS GENERALLY HOW IT WOULD HAPPEN. SO IN THESE CASES, WE WERE ABANDONING A PREPARATIONS. WE ARE NOT LEAVING CASH ON THE TABLE. WHAT WE ARE DOING IS TAKING AWAY THE APPROPRIATION AUTHORITY. IT IS THE CLEANUP. IN PART BECAUSE THE APARTMENTS HAVE ADMINISTERED OF AUTHORITY TO SHIFT SOME OF THE EXISTING A PREPARATION. WE WOULD PULL IT BACK THEY COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT CHECKING IN WITH EITHER YOU OR ME DEPENDING ON THE LEVEL AT WHICH THEY WANT TO DO THAT. IT IS CLEANUP. IT IS IMPORTANT CLEANUP, BUT THAT IS WHAT IT IS. >>YOU SEE THIS WITH CAPITAL BECAUSE OF THE AUTOMATIC CARRYFORWARD. AS TOM WAS DESCRIBING. WHAT HAPPENED WITH THOSE APPROPRIATIONS. BUT ALSO, THERE IS A 2018 LTG O BOND FUND. THEY WILL NOT CONTINUE TO BE PROCEEDS GOING INTO THE BOND FUND BECAUSE THIS PREVENTS THE ZOMBIE APPROPRIATION THAT 15 YEARS LATER IS STILL ON THE BOOKS. >>I THINK MANY OF US WERE LOOKING AT 14.5 AND THINKING, IS THAT AVAILABLE? IF YOU’RE TELLING US IT’S NOT. >>WE NEVER SOLD THE BONDS TO GET THE CASH. IF WE HAD, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN RESTRICTED ANY CASE. >>THAT COMPLETES THE COMMENTS ON THAT. >>I AM DONE, TOM. I APPRECIATE IT. THAT IS THE END OF THE FIVE ITEMS OF BUSINESS WE HAD HERE. NOW I AM GOING TO OPEN IT UP TO COUNCILMEMBER, COUNCILMEMBER HERBOLD. THIS IS AN EARLY TRAILER OF COMING ATTRACTIONS. WE WILL BE ASKING FOR. >>PLEASE, GO AHEAD. >>FANTASTIC. SO I HAVE TWO ITEMS THAT ARE BOTH PARTS RELATED ITEMS. THEY ARE ADDRESSING A SHARED ISSUE AS IT RELATES TO HOW THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS HAS RECENTLY CHANGED ITS MAXIMUM AWARD. FOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD MATCHING FUND. AND SO ONE IS FUNDING FOR THE MEMORIAL PROJECT. THE AIDS MEMORIAL PROJECT RECENTLY PRESENTED TO A JOINT COMMITTEE OF MY COMMITTEE AND COUNCILMEMBER, COUNCILMEMBER JUAREZ’S COMMITTEE. THIS IS A PROJECT THAT THE COUNCIL HAS SUPPORTED IN THE PAST. IT HAS DEVELOPED PASSED RESOLUTIONS TO ASK THE EXECUTIVE TO PUT TOGETHER AN IDT. IT HAS BEEN DOING GREAT WORK. AT THIS LUNCH AND LEARN. A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO, WE LEARNED ABOUT THE WORK OF THE IDT. AND THE PROGRESS OF THE AIDS MEMORIAL PROJECT. AND THE SHORTFALL THEY HAVE NOW IS BECAUSE THEY WERE ANTICIPATING THE ABILITY TO APPLY TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD MATCHING FUND FOR $100,000 AS THEY HAD THE PREVIOUS YEAR. AND THE LIMITS THIS YEAR FOR THAT FUND IS $25,000. THAT IS PER QUARTER. >>YOU COULD STILL COME BACK AND ASK FOR $25,000 MORE NOTABLE TIMES PER YEAR. >>I THINK THAT IS THE CASE BUT THE ISSUE IS THE TIMING OF THE MONEY. AND THE ABILITY OF THE PROJECT TO MOVE FORWARD. >>WITHOUT HAVING TO DO THE QUARTERLY APPLICATION. >>AND SO, THIS PARTICULAR FUNDING WOULD BE FOCUSED ON THE NARRATIVES PROJECT PART OF THE PLAN. WHERE THERE IS A WORK OF STORYTELLING, WHERE THE CONSULTANTS HAS GATHERED SELF- DETERMINED PERSONAL NARRATIVES RELATED TO HIV AND AIDS FROM SURVIVORS AND FAMILY MEMBERS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE PASSED, PHASE 2 OF THE PROJECT WILL CONTINUE GATHERING THOSE NARRATIVES AND BROADEN INCLUSIVITY AND APPLY LEARNED NARRATIVE GATHERING BEHAVIORS. AND IT WILL ALSO WORK TO SPECIFICALLY REACH OUT TO PEOPLE WHO SELF DESCRIBE AS IMMIGRANT REFUGEES LIVING WITH THIS ABILITIES. TRANSGENDER, USE,? OR, THOSE LIVING WITH AIDS OR THOSE WITHOUT THE LGBTQ COMMITTEE. THE IDEA IS TRYING TO HAVE A WAY OF WORKING WITH A LOCAL INSTITUTION AND ENSURING THAT THOSE NARRATIVES LIVE SOMEWHERE. THEY HAVE SOME VARIOUS IDEAS ABOUT HOW TO INTEGRATE THERE WAS NARRATIVES IN WITH THE ARTS PROJECT ITSELF. THE SELF-GUIDED TOURS THAT YOU CAN HAVE LISTENING DEVICES AS YOU ARE WALKING THROUGH THE PATHWAYS. THAT IS ONE ITEM THAT THEY ARE EXPLORING. THE OTHER AMENDMENT IS FOR THE SEATTLE REPS, SPECIFICALLY FOR THE PUBLIC WORKS INITIATIVE. THIS IS THEIR SECOND YEAR OF DOING PUBLIC WORKS THEATER. IT IS MODELED ON NEW YORK CITY’S PUBLIC WORK THERE. IT, RATHER THAN WORKING WITH PROFESSIONAL ACTORS, THEY ARE WORKING WITH PEOPLE WHO COME FROM VARIOUS COMMUNITIES AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT HAD AN EXPERIENCE WITH THEATER. WITH A THEATER PRODUCTION. IT IS WORKING WITH GROUPS LIKE MARY’S PLACE AND A LOT OF TRYING TO INTEGRATE PEOPLE AND THEIR LIVED EXPERIENCE WITH THE EXPERIENCE OF THEATER. AND SO IT GIVES FOLKS THE OPPORTUNITY TO NOT ONLY TAKE CLASSES, ATTEND PERFORMANCE AND EVENTS BUT ALSO TO JOIN IN THE CREATION OF ANTICIPATORY THEATER. BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH LONG- TERM AND MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL PARTNERSHIPS WITH LOCAL NONPROFITS. THEY ALSO LAST YEAR AT THE CULMINATION OF THEIR PUBLIC WORKS REDUCTION, THE PREPARATION BEFORE THEY WENT LIVE, ALSO PRESENTED IN MY COMMITTEE LAST YEAR. FOR THEIR INAUGURAL PUBLIC WORKS THEATER PROGRAM. >>THEY ALSO APPLIED TO THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS. >>25,000 THEY WERE HOPING FOR 100. YOU ARE ADVOCATING FOR THIS BECAUSE YOU THINK THEY ARE DOING IMPORTANT WORK. >>THIS WAS IN UNANTICIPATED SHIFTED THE DEPARTMENT OF NEIGHBORHOODS AND FUNDING POLICIES. >>THANK YOU. I HAVE SOME I WOULD LIKE TO BRING FORWARD. ONE IS FOR AN EVENING NURSE AT THE DOWNTOWN EMERGENCY SERVICES CENTER. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE LEARNED OVER THE YEARS IS, WHEN THE NURSE IS ON SITE, THERE ARE DRAMATICALLY FEWER CALLS FOR OUR EMERGENCY SERVICES. FOR THE FIRST RESPONDERS. AND WE HAVE GOT DATA TO DEMONSTRATE THAT IN TERMS OF CHARTS THAT HAVE BEEN CREATED BY OUR CHIEF SCOGGINS AND CREW. WE WANT TO STEP UP BECAUSE IT WILL SAVE OUR FIRE DEPARTMENT. AND FIRST RESPONDERS. IT IS A MUCH BETTER OUTCOME FOR THE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE THERE. HALF OF AN ANNUAL SALARY FOR THIS IS ABOUT $70,000. WE ARE WORKING WITH HARBORVIEW JUST TO BE ABLE TO SAY WE WANT TO BUILD’S ON THIS. I THINK IT IS A GOOD EXPENDITURE. I WANT TO SAY THANKS TO THE MAYOR WHEN I TALKED TO HER ABOUT THIS. IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT SHE IS INTENDING TO INCLUDE THIS IN HER BUDGET. BUT EXPANDING THE PROGRAM, SHE RECOGNIZES THE VALUE OF THIS. SO THAT IS OUR FIRST REQUEST FOR THAT. AND THE OTHER, IT IS OUR LEAD PROGRAM. LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSISTED DIVERSION. WITH HUGE THANKS TO LEAD AND TO DAN, OUR PROSECUTING ATTORNEY’S OFFICE. THEY ASKED FOR AND RECEIVED A $300,000 GRANT FROM MICROSOFT TO PROVIDE THEM WITH SOFTWARE THAT WILL CALM, THAT WILL ACTUALLY HELP THEM WITH THE DATA SHARING PLATFORM THAT THEY NEED. THAT IS WONDERFUL NEWS BECAUSE PART OF WHAT THE LEAD PROGRAM HAS BEEN STRUGGLING WITH BUT ALSO PEOPLE ON THIS AND HAVE BEEN FRUSTRATED BY HIS WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO HAVE THE COLLECTIVE DATA THAT IS TALKING TO THE OTHER PROGRAMS. SO WE KNOW WHO THE INDIVIDUALS ARE. SO WE CAN ACTUALLY FOLLOW THE OUTCOMES. HAVE SOME MEASURABLE DATA AND THEN DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT WE ARE REACHING SUCCESS. THIS SOFTWARE WILL HELP US DO THAT BUT IN ORDER FOR OUR I.T. DEPARTMENT TO HELP, THERE IS A REQUEST TO FUND A HALFTIME PROJECT MANAGER AND A HALF-TIME BUSINESS ANALYST FOR APPROXIMATELY EIGHT MONTHS TO ASSIST WITH GETTING THIS LEAD PROGRAM IMPLEMENTED. WE DO NOT WANT TO DELAY THIS. IT WOULD BE A RIDICULOUS WASTE OF THIS SOFTWARE IF WE CAN’T GET IT EFFECTIVELY INCORPORATED INTO THE BIGGER PROCESS. THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE ALL BEEN ASKING FOR. IT IS TO DIVERT PEOPLE TO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO. WE HAVE TO KNOW WHO WE ARE DIVERTING. HOW THEY ARE BEING USED. HOW THEY ARE CONNECTED WITH THEIR CASE MANAGERS AND WHERE THEY ARE GOING. WITH A HOUSING IS. HOW THEY ARE DOING. WE WILL COME BACK WITH MORE INFORMATION THOSE ARE MY 2. >>DO HAVE A THIRD? >>VERY GOOD. WELL COUNCILMEMBER HERBOLD , THANK YOU. >>COUNCILMEMBER GONZALEZ? DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING? COUNCILMEMBER PACHECO? GENTLEMEN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP. TOM, YOUR MEMO WAS TERRIFIC, >>DID WE DO THAT CIP ALREADY? >>YES. >>EVERYTHING ELSE? >>DID YOU WANT TO ADD ANYTHING? >>GO AHEAD. >>AGENDA ITEMS 2, 3, 4. >>I DID HAVE A CIP ADJUSTMENT. AS IT RELATES TO THE HIGHLAND PARK ROUNDABOUT. WE CREATED A CIP PAGE FOR THEM. FOR THAT PROJECT. IN THE BUDGET PROCESS. LAST YEAR. BUT IN DOING SO, WE DIDN’T CAPTURE THE FULL COMMITMENT THAT SDOT HAS GENEROUSLY MADE TO THE PROJECT. THIS PARTICULAR AMENDMENT DOES 2 THINGS. IT CAPTURES THE FULL $500,000 COMMITMENT TO THE PROJECT. THE ADOPTED CIP THAT WE ADDED THIS PAGE LAST YEAR. IT ONLY LISTED 200,000 OF THE 300,000. BUT IT ALSO ADJUSTS THE TOTAL PRICE OF THE PROJECT. AND IT ALLOWS FOR AN INCREASE IN THE ESTIMATED COST IN THE POTENTIAL DESCRIPTION FOR A STOPLIGHT AT A LOWER COST AT THE SAME LOCATION. AND SDOT HAD BEEN CONSULTED AND IS AWARE AND IS SUPPORTIVE OF THIS UPDATE. >>WILL THERE BE A BUDGET IMPACT? I AM NOT UNDERSTANDING. THEY SPENT $200, $200,000 OUT OF 500? >>THIS IS A FUTURE ALLOCATION. >>WHAT IS THAT? >>SO FUTURE ALLOCATION FOR, WE ARE LOOKING AT THE WRONG PAGE. THERE ARE TWO PAGES ASSOCIATED WITH THIS ONE. >>SO FUTURE ALLOCATION FOR 2020 AND AGAIN, I SHOULD ADD THAT THE 300,000 IS CONTINGENT UPON US RECEIVING FUNDING FROM THE STATE. BECAUSE IT IS CONSIDERED, IT IS CONSIDERED TO BE A MATCH TO A STATE GRANT. SDOT WILL BE APPLYING FOR IT. >>IS THAT SOMETHING YOU CAN INCORPORATE? IN THE CIP? WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN HERE? >>ON THE PROJECT PAGE FOR THE PROCESS IS, IT IS MUCH LIKE ANY OTHER AMENDMENT TO THE SUPPLEMENTAL. IT WOULD ADD AN ATTACHMENT WITH THE REVISED PAGE TO THE ORDINANCE. TO THE SUPPLEMENTAL ORDINANCE. WE CAN FACILITATE THAT. >>THAT IS GOOD. >>THAT WORKS FOR ME. >>VERY GOOD. THANK YOU FOR THAT. >>INC. YOU FOR ANTICIPATING. THANK YOU FOR GOING THROUGH THIS WITH A FINE TOOTH CONE. I APPRECIATE THE BRIEFINGS YOU PROVIDED ME IN ADVANCE. NOTHING ELSE? THANK YOU. MEETING IS ADJOURNED.
