V. Public Comment: No public comment was offered at this meeting.
a) Letter from Bayview Youth Accountability Board (A Neighborhood-based alternative to Juvenile Courts), Community Partnership Initiative Project, Tony Litwak, Project Director requesting space to hold weekly hearings beginning January (14) thru June (30).
VII. Director's Report: The Executive Director reported
a) The Webmaster still needs one additional photo for completion of the SECFCommission website;
b) Regarding the (Phase D) FY 02-03 budget request included in the packets:
The Clean Water Budget includes two requests. A) Replace the temporary as-needed position (1040 hrs/yr.) into a permanent full-time (2080 hrs/yr) position (~$39K, 2nd pg). This request will alleviate the process of having to check the 1424 list, schedule interviews, hire and train for a replacement to the temporary as-needed position every 6 months (or sooner if the incumbent finds a full-time position sooner). B) Increase in security patrol services ($20K to McCoy from $14.88/hr. to $18/hr.) due to the new Minimum Wage Ordinance (copy distributed at last Commission meeting).
The General Fund budget request includes: increase in Security patrol services ($16K, also to McCoy's) and a request for an additional position (1840 Jr. Mgmt.).
The budget will be on next week's PUC agenda and it would be appreciated if we could get support in attendance at these budget hearings since it looks as if both positions in both budgets will be cut.
c) A new staff person, Mr. Kenneth Kwan has started in the temporary as-needed, 1424 position effective Monday, Dec. 24. At 1040 hours, he will work full time until June or until he accepts position elsewhere.
d) The proposed plans for modifications to Room 408-409 by CCSF/ Southeast have been forwarded to the PUC/Commercial Land Management (Gary Dowd) campus and approved as minor renovations. However before the College is notified of this acceptance and they continue with this reconstruction, Commissioners wishing to review the area still has the opportunity before the next Commission meeting.
Commissioner Hardin moved and Commissioner Brown seconded to accept the Director's Report. Motion passed
VIII. Presentation: Commissioner Larkin introduced Mr. Tony Litwak, Project Director for the Youth Accountability Board (A project of the Community Partnership Initiative and neighborhood-based alternative to Juvenile Court). Mr. Litwak thanked the Commission for the opportunity to come before the Commission and issue a request to use space in the facility to hold weekly panel hearings.
After a brief history of the establishment of the program, a list of the agencies cooperating with the Board, and description of the training that panelists and judge/arbitrators receive, Mr. Litwak answered questions regarding the continued funding, thru JAIBG (Juvenile Accountability Initiative Block grant) of the program contingent upon further development of the project.
Commissioner Larkin stared that the program sounded like it had potential; however, had a couple of concerns he wanted to express before approval of use of the facility could be discussed: 1) adequate security in the facility during the hearings; and 2) clarification of the process of the hearings (requested additional information of the program), insurance.
After these concerns are addressed, the Bayview Youth Accountability Board is invited back to update the Commission on its progress and re-visit the request to use space.
XI. Introduction of New Business:
Commissioner Looper requested a re-invitation to the Dept. of Elections to inform the Community on the voter registrations process, jobs (on Election day) opportunities, etc. preferably before this primary election.
Commissioner Larkin suggested staff draft a letter of congratulations to the newly elected City Attorney and an invitation to present his views and goals for the Dept./City during his tenure.
Commissioner Looper requested details of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) discussed at the Mayor's Community Meeting detailing the relationship between the police dept. and the (African American) Community for discussion at a future Commission meeting.
Commissioner Hardin asked that staff look into the progress of the MOU between the City and the American Red Cross particularly regarding the facility at 1800 Oakdale and report back status.
Commissioner Larkin reminded the Commission that the Annual Martin Luther King Labor and Civic Scholarship Breakfast will be held on Monday, Jan. 21 beginning at 8 a.m. at the Holiday Inn on Van Ness. All are invited and encouraged to attend.
Commissioner Maxwell moved and Commissioner Hardin seconded to adjourn the SECFCommission meeting at 7:06 p.m.
