Comm. Hale moved to approve entering into contracts with the above CBOs, separating the vote for Bayview Hunters Point Foundation from the others (so he could abstain). Comm. Connolly 2nd. Upon voice vote, the motion carried 4-0.
The Commission was then made aware that due to the loss of one Commissioner from voting, there was no quorum to vote on the remaining contract (BVHP). This will be held over til the next Commission meeting.
R. Sanchez reminded the Commission that they should call for public comments before they take action on motions.
NTanya Lee proposed a friendly amendment to the action just taken, to include the understanding that when the final word on the add back amounts comes from the Bd of Supes, that those amounts be returned to the CBOs from which they were cut originally.
R. Sanchez commented that it was her understanding that the Bd of Supes restored the money cut from the BCOs (in aggregate amount, without stating specific amounts for specific contracts).
G. Tucker did not know. She wanted to get the full information before bringing it before the Commission.
Comm Hale pressed his concerns again about the Bd of Supes exercising that power over the Dept and Commission.
Bruce Fisher expressed his concern over the concern expressed by Comm Hale, and how that and the “legal” opinion didn’t jibe with the opinion of the Mayor’s budget office or the Bd of Supes. He wanted to be sure that the assurances of the Chief and Commission President would be honored.
