11:03 am
yesterday, i have an opportunity some twenty-four hours ago to appear about you since that 2000 of communications between our control center and operators on the street and the communications have deadlielt w customer relations and safety and security our operators if not the most important job category certainly the most visible we want to talk the critical need for a dedicated training facility for certainly one of the core communications in thfunctions in all of our business safety first but you may recall over the last couple of years we've been on a steady improvement course for the on time preferences with tperforms with the reinstated is up with your help and support but more
11:04 am
than that moone of the things we've been able to do is master blo playoff the prop m goal to have high quality training we've been able to invest in over the last several years but allows us to provide reliable and safety services but for 4 service increases in the last 2 and a half years how did he, we even though again, he with looked at the way we're training the investment we had been macro in training is a critical function of the service and fall we need to right size the staff we needed to look at the facilities, the program and we did all of that looked at the graduation and the curriculum and the result was we were able
11:05 am
to process a record number of people through the system and the results that we are shown right here and again, i mentioned the improvements and on time performance improvements in service delivery and all of these are coming over the laced two years we've been able to have a stable and could not have pipeline some 2 thousand operators in the system we sp t expect that to grow with the additional service increases but allows us to meet the city's goal of the expanding transit and increasing the mode share for transit and alternatives other than driving at the same time, we remain vulnerable and class general run thirty to 40 people but the training folks have had to work hard to constantly search for locations
11:06 am
the training is 44 days along for a new bus operator and most of the time should be spent behind the wheel looking for a site to be able to do that is difficult wen've had no leads ad particular land and hand in hand from place to place over a long time and when you keep in mind the exceptions for the safety and the fact we carry from a ridership prospective more riders than any other two systems put together remain the only operational bus provider not whith a training facility that allows us to continue the improvements that we made because if we're not able to find a place if we call on the good graze of onsite others if we can't deliver we'll be below
11:07 am
our services goals i guess over 3 mayoral mifksdz we have been looking for a place this search started when willie brown, jr. was starting his second term and continues her here's a quick overview of the places we've used and i don't think any of the building the real estate the blaay area but e near bay area is more inviting for looking for a facility of this type of and this nature so the point i'm trying to make we've been nomads for the last 19 years we've been on a method california safe haven that continues to this day only this time we think we found the right place certainly meets all
11:08 am
our needs from allowing us to hit our service goal and give us the room we need to conduct the proper training and the location is such that it has easy assess on and off and people will be able to get there the terms of lease as note in the bnudget analyst report eave talked about that what is important from our stand point this is the cost of that operation we'll be the operating budget we're prepared to do e deal with that core need for the system and making the accommodations to get this facility it will pay defenders never mind of making the service objectives avenue 15 years of searching we think we've found a solution that allows us to keep
11:09 am
our goals going it is difficult sometimes to comme come before a body and say there isn't a lot of good alternatives but in this particular cased frankly there isn't i mentioned we continue to look at the conditions the releasial estate market and the supply knono one expecting it endeavor to increase the industrial location at thirty tampa ran is beli below-market-rate in san francisco so in that respect we've worked with the developer to get a very badly we on a fair deal and in that regard but frankly the alternative to continue to reflex missing a training class, missing the ability to improve and inclusive
11:10 am
on our service and meet the goals we've set again, the alternative the only real alternative will, maintain the status quo that again for the heaviest traveled agency in the region to have to depend on the good graze of others to control our own destiny is where we don't want to be it jeopardizes the services and safety improvements we've made with that, we're recommending as strong as we can say approval the resolution we believe 2 will insure the improvement in the safety and allows us into the future because we may talk i've been tremendous supporter collectively of our acquisition of new vehicles and technologies as we move to the electrical vehicle i've not heard anyone
11:11 am
talking about the drivers bus but if the technology becomes available we'll always need drivers even the most highly sophisticated technology relies on humans to monitor and manage the technology this is a critical need for us what i will argue the most important job cartegory the fac of agent and the city the first people that literally are casing precious cargo we entrust the lives of over seven hundred trips a day to the operators and need to give them the training to deliver the services so i thank you for that and we're i'm available to answer any questions. >> thank you, mr. halley supervisor tang. >> thank you suvery much for
11:12 am
your presentation i was one of the annoying supervisors that asked you how it was going with our operator training i appreciate the agency trying to train as many operators as possible that serves all the customers in muni i have some scott wiener's questions about this new arrangement i appreciated your summon of the sites you've analyzed previously that was one basic question i had for you given the location so you know with this new lease arrangement obviously as harvey will be pointing out in his report it is a significant jump in terms of the amount we'll pay in terms of relent hardwacharge what you're paying it is one and 45 thousand dollars a year a significant increase and you know can you tell me a little
11:13 am
bit how once we have the site you've said will provide more certainty nevertheless ain term of the training how that might help with getting more operators out the door into the street from work 44 cases for the operator to go through the training will this insure it sticks to the 44 days right now be you seeing delays in getting people out the door. >> certainly first of all, just so far a point of clarification the one and 55 thousand dollars is reference is not granted it simply licenses and fees we pay on the places we have a point of clarification but having this permanent will facilities allows us to one of the things we've been able to do over the years as we are able to provide the
11:14 am
planning staff and the resources even with service increases we determine the number of operator for example, every month 1 operators will retire or attrition and in addition, we add for service we need more operator this allows us to make sure that we don't have peaks and valleys so as we go through our process and add service and improve our reliability because you mean we go through a period we miss if he went through 909 percent of the service to drop pulling out now and say down to 97 it creates gaps because of schedules so that thin this particular case it let's the please be advised that the chair may order the removal from the meeting room planning folks we need this many operators ray train and one of the things to
11:15 am
remember in addition to a problem i've talked about all the things an operator needs to do to customer ambassador be able to respond to safety calls and security calls one of the other things they have to do through all interethis interpre navigation e navigate 65 though ton pound vehicle through a densely crowded city to understand houw the vehicle wors and feels and then how to turn it is very difficult if you look at one of the 60 foot buses you don't turn it hike an automobile it has a different dimensiynami having the facility that loallo the training to coach and teach those kinds of bus movement is very important that will not
11:16 am
only give the operator more self-confidence and stikill but also will make them better prepared the more driving time the better i don't expect we'll look to cut the 44 days just the opposite to have a facility and that is available when we have someone that is out there if they have a problem a in a particular location can bring them back into for training and also, because our operators have san francisco meet frederal and state standards for more training that allows us to this situation it is unpredictable and you call a site and take 10 operators out of one division you miss the services having our own facility we'll meet the
11:17 am
service needs but at the same time our operators are providing the training and met all the regulatory requirement. >> can you automobitalk about plans or mta's plans for expanding the training i know we're getting more buses and trains, new i mean, hopefully for operator so, i mean is that site okay to accommodate more operators. >> well in this particular case it is and the training burden over the next few years we're in the midst of it we're about to start on the l l v as the new l l r v at the end of the fall of this year we start with that but with all the new buses one of the things we're doing again with our constant help and so forth renewing the
11:18 am
fleet and the new hybrid technology the bus operates different more sensors and electronics and diagnostics on the dashed that tell the operator what to do sometimes the disadvantaged of september sources and electronics you can shut the bus down so that requires additional trouble shooting training you want to maximize the time the trainers with with the operators hands on in moving the vehicles you can learn a description the classroom this is practice stuff we move to the real world soon and the training folks want to insure that the operators are best prepared so as you have - bring in new vehicles is it so
11:19 am
constant you you know combrupt and upgrading based on the training in all t vehicles. >> okay so you know again, i understand the benefits of having more certainty over the site and a larger facility will as well longer than term balances 9 and a half years one thing eave learned the city of south san francisco has a development agreement with the owner of the facility even though mta has the ability to purchase this site have had the opportunity it development agreement does exist and not guarantee you'll continue your training facility there so, in fact, the preferred use i believe there is office space can you talk about that and it's been tough and long but at the same time, we're investing a lot money down the road in the and a half or 10
11:20 am
years we may not be able to stay here and do training there. >> well, i think it is solves what it does if you in answer to our question looking at from is service prospective the decade of certainty, if you will, the site meets all our objectives for training over the next decade and at the same time, we will continue to explore any other viable alternatives should they become available it is not we would stop looking but work with the developer and the reality folks to work on the best arrangement and also gives us time to evaluate you know all of the potentially other sites for what we might do in concert with the owner in improving the situation whether financing on
11:21 am
terms there but really for us it give us a consistent because of the operation for the next decade and allows us to continue the improvements and meet the service needs they will be expanding i think we talked yesterday about the consultant strategy and even though need to address additional service to meet our collective policy goals we think that while appreciate the concern there we think this gives us a 10 years at least or approximately 10 years certainty the continuous of the way we are which is operation from a service prospective very higher risk everything we're accomplished the last couple of years is vulnerable if we are innovate successful in getting access to a facility we'll have to cancel or limit the training
11:22 am
9 pipeline is uneven and don't have hard to set schedules that are the redoll effects will be shown on the street with less buses showing up or buses not showing up when their supposed to be buses more crowded. >> so i would encourage the agency while you're in this space to continue luke for more stable alternatives beyond the decade i know that supervisor yee has a question i'll let him ask. >> supervisor yee. >> i guess anythimy line of questioning is the same as supervisor tang some porart of your presentatio almost i'm sorry. >> the front part of your presentation of seeing what you've been doing oand successfl this training and so forth almost is argument to continue
11:23 am
that effort. >> the question i have for current trainings is that have you actually missed any trainings programs the last few years? >> i'm sorry, i didn't hear the question. >> you've had a set of trainings the last 44 days each have you the last few yrlgz years missed any sets of trainings because you didn't have anywhere to train the people. >> actually yes it is we both missed and had to reschedule and reduce the class size in order to accommodate not having proper facilities when i say - i will stress with the vulnerability of all the improvement we've made again, when you look at our needs 2009
11:24 am
operators we know where a certain number are going on with attrition and others need recertification it ben restraining order benefiting us to lay out a schedule and the training folks can staff up class sizes but with the changes and the improvement that the folks having made we're vulnerable if we don't - cannot get a facility to give the operator trainees the time behind the wheel we have had to postpone classes and reduce the class size what that means again had you don't have oaenough operators in the pipeline you miss service and that's in fact, what happened what we're trying to do both continue and improve the quality services and make sure we have the proper planning tools in place to make sure we don't do it the future but, yes
11:25 am
had to make compromises because of the situations. >> what percentage this you know last year what percent of the drivers that would have been trained weren't trained? >> what percentage i'm sorry again. >> you're saying there is times you missed trainings and couldn't you had to reduce the size and now your falling behind in at number of drivers you need how far have you fallen behind and i'll be happy to to send you a followup letter to cancel classes and drop down. >> you stated that i was asking about the numbers. >> we'll provide you those numbers. >> you don't have an idea of - you know sort of a general idea.
11:26 am
>> yeah. if a typical pagers and similar sound-producing electronic devices are prohibited at this meeting. class of new bus operators is two thirty and 40 you would depending on the staffing level if you have the facilities you'll want to be on the high-end especially, as you there are no go through so at least i can think of two occasions the last two years the classes were having to be cancelled another one to make adjustment at the last minute that caused us to pay people over time to miss runs all kinds of redoll effects class that don't go through the pipeline 80 people and others that are less than desirable and if you look at what is take place with the service you see we've gone from missing 67 to 6 percent of the service under a fraction of one percent the numbers when you
11:27 am
look at 17 to 8 hundred active operators those are the numbers. >> what i'm trying to get at i have to find the justification why we are spending over 10 years and trillions of dollars for training facilities and it would have been a good presentation you if brought those numbers with you so is hey look we're missing those many drivers and have to pay over time so we have justification because you're saying at training model is a good model and the drivers are well-trained and so forth so it feels like why change it then. >> i understand. >> $20 million. >> i understand the question i'll go book to 18 months ago we were missing 6 percent of the
11:28 am
service not enough operators and the ability to train them we hired extra training and the process to get us here is taken longer than than we like right now, we're providing the highest percentage of scheduled service on the street this agency ever has so in terms of how many drivers and how many have been trained it is we've been able to do that but had to scramble over a longer are period of time and we would have machibeen more co effective to have a facility and the ability to plan and to deliver in a more streamlined fashion. >> okay. i guess that is sort of the point if you could give cost analysis then it it t that would be
11:29 am
helpful to support this particular item. >> when you say cost analysis if you would, sir clarify what it say you would like. >> if you in our statement you said much more cost-efficient to have this new site so where's the analysis for that. >> okay. well, we'll i'll be happy to to that about ybut a cost analysis will demonstrate something from the controller's office about the cost to the city, the cost to the economy of us not having delivering our services or having delays and bunches and gaps so we'll provide you with a cost of what the lost of service is. >> yeah. i'm not ready to vote on this unless you two want to do this i
11:30 am
want to see your analysis >> okay. >> okay. >> tell you what mr. rose, can we go to your report. and have public comment left to go. >> i'm sorry. >> yes. mr. chairman, and members of the committee first of all, let me make a general comment the budget analyst office is totally supportive of a high quality training facility for the sfmta and we totally concur with the developme concept of a consolidated training facility but i'll note that the statement that the comments that supervisor tang pointed out about what happens after 9 and a half years is extremely important in my judgment in our consideration of this item on page 3 of our report we state
11:31 am
in order to complete lease holder improvements on the subject hand for hand property the owner and the city of san francisco south san francisco negotiated an agreement that allows the sfmta entertainers on the property through february the 28 of 2016 that's the end date of this proposed lease agreement you're asked to approve if if the development agreement is sustained i say if sfmta would have the option to extend the firemterm the leases under same terms and conditions based on the length of the extension, however, the proposed sfmta bus operator trainees is not consistent with the long term to
11:32 am
provide officers at this site within walking distance of both the board of trustees bart and the bart station on page 5 of the report we note in table two on page 2 of the report over the 9 year 5 month lease the sfmta will extend $29 million plus to rent and operate and maintain this new bus paraded trained facility as supervisor yee as piloted and supervisor tang sfmta is currently spending approximately, one and 55 thousand dollars unanimously for short time licenses for off street facilities during the first year of the proposed lease
11:33 am
the sfmta will pay $2 million 4 hundred and 80 thousand three hundred plus in rent that is over one thousand nine hundred percent more than the one and 55 thousand that the sfmta currently acceptance for bus paraded facility about one and 50 percent one thousand 5 hundred percent slightly in excess of that the estimated over the wall appraised value of this property is $28 million plus as shown in table 2 if the sfmta rents the property for the proposed 9 year 5 month lease the sfmta will pay the owner total rent of $25 million plus over that term which is only
11:34 am
$3 million plus less than than the 28.8 appraised value including the improvements, however, in fairness the sfmta the owner is not willing to sell the property again open page 4 if the sfmta compressors the option to purchase at the earliest date after year six the sfmta would potential pay on estimated total rent of $15 million plus for year 6 the lease and then an additional estimated price to purchase based on the current appraisal over and over a total of $44 million plus however, the purchase price is hopefully to be significantly higher than that as it will be
11:35 am
based on an appraisal of the best use of the property and completed 6 years later on page 6 of our report if the board of supervisors approves the proposed lease at sfmta will spend approximately $25 million over 9 years plus at the end of that period the city of south san francisco doesn't extend the agreement with the owner to allow a bus operator facility only this site the sfmta will find itself the exact same situation as currently with the livelihood there will be fewer lease and purchase options and similarly the sfmta 90 does in the purchase this site the sfmta would extend a minimum of
11:36 am
$44.5 million including rental costs and the costs to purchase the property with no absolutely no sdpeguarantees the sooilt si can be used as as long term bus operator training facility because the city of san francisco may require a different use for the property we recommend i amend the proposed resolution for a lease term this is just to make it correct lease term of 9 years and 5 months as stated instead of 9 years and six months for the reasons i've just sat down and consider approval the proposed resolution and mainstreamed a amended to be a policy resolution for the board of supervisors. >> thank you, supervisor. >> i would like to continue this item for a week to get additional information from mta. >> okay so let's take public comment
11:37 am
right now first i'll say anyone wish to comment on item 2? >> on item number 2. >> other members if you want to come up you have 2 minutes. >> my name is silvia johnson. and i've been very sick i hope we can review this transportation for the mission and training process and our - but our drivers and parking areas spaces thank you. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good morning board of supervisors eric for the local

11:43 am
custom facility for sfmta we have to tear down one and 50 square feet of warehouses i note the appraisal was $28 million that is not correct if we remodel the warehouses it worst a lot more but we have letters of intent to a long term lease of 9 and a half years i feel at this point we can extend that lease that is one of the questions that supervisor tang asked the reason we come up u came up with the 9 and a half or 10 years the new plan by city of san francisco they changed the staff and a grand idea in the middle of an industrial area but there's no facility there to - no - the traffic situation there's no way from 10 avenue to get into where the sigte is the have to create a new road wiit

11:49 am
assistant can you describe a little bit what that entails and the others are it staff yet to be heard. >> that's correct the two - the 9 local positions will be working on insuring that the policy regarding retention and holding on to video is maintained so matt haneaning we're in comp with our own policy they'll be dealing information requests and doing the work of redacting videos as predicament appropriate to respond to requests from daze to make sure the videos are available for court preertsdz aiming that's the bulk of what their doing. >> so they'll be doing it versus a vendor for the most
11:50 am
part and it staff we can forget their need in terms of the ongoing maintains maintenance i know that was pointed out one hundred thousand dollars but probably other- ai'm plaintiff' attorney wanting to mr. and mrpe report we'll be talking about that 24 every year but pencil that. >> the maintenance and support line that is readilly focus on e things that are needed to sustain the access management process setting up information one time sergeant savings account set working up the
11:51 am
firewall thing but in addition there is the maintenance support line is support for the body worn camera unit we'll be doing all the public records request and information for court and then in addition to that really where the cost that you might be concerned with the the out years with the contract and storage so but really you know the legal assistance will insure that the records are maintained and video that may not be necessarily maintained that's where the costs are mitigated a little bit. >> okay. he know this that obviously comes at a handwriting conversation around the cameras that the city developed around that in terms of just the financial aspect of these purchase or going with the
11:52 am
vender i think that it is something i feel comfortable with supporting. >> okay thank you supervisor tang one comment we've got comments from the r v progress can you comment from the police department prospective. >> the police department participated the rfp process as experts the office of contract administration ran those as the body the city that runs procurement processes and so you know if their questions about subject matter we have my colleagues here available to answer any questions surrendering that and oca is available outside the hearings to answer questions and okay. i've contract them as well appreciate that. >> okay. thank you very much colleagues if not other questions move on to public

12:28 pm
let me start by assessing how the process starts it starts by focusing on this the assessment process senators by developing some preliminary input did we get to some goals and objectives these are community-based the police department and the community be the community etc. but the goal to create some goals and objectives that will allow us to get to a focus on our assessment following the assessment i'll going get to the assessment following the assessment the cops office has a report detailing the specific recommendation there will be a serious of reports we're talking about transparent we have to practice what we preach and the report my office will help with the recommendations at a 6-month mark and again at 12-month

12:32 pm
something that is a white house initiative as a result the present task force the 15 policing the president kicked off in may of 2015 he announced the lounge of the open police data initiative peace officer and let me explain what it is about the purpose of initiative to encourage the police departments cross the country to make better use of their data and some of you requested data an annual report but that report is summarized and your innovate getting the sense of it but open data you can look at and get a better sense of what guess golden going on so better use of data and #2r5i7b89 and to improve policing outcomes the goal is for agencies around the country to release data in
12:33 pm
an open format like cops and searchers and use of force and officer involved shooting and complaint etc. the police data helps the last night to leverage data from the processes within the department and we've seen the pro tem developing bras of data and technology the areas of earlier pension systems, body cameras and #340r79 use of force in incidents and the success of this program is really, really taken hold less than a year it was announced in may 30th departments have as i said open to the police officers open data initiative and have released 50 different data sets from use of force and pedestrian and community meetings and a whole lot more san francisco has signed on to be a site for ltthe
12:34 pm
police open data initiated which is an important first step the cops office as well as the white house we will cooperate our efforts to move forward with the certificate of appropriateness open data ems to the honorable 3 and 4 >> (clapping.) thank you chief ray let me express my appreciation to attorney general lynch and assistant bryan stretch that answered the call that police chief and i made to an independent review of the police practices here in san francisco you've already heard if the chief and director davis what they're approach will be i want to mayor you knew the request was an open effort to make sure that we have the best practices that we can possibly have and that we measure up to the police
12:35 pm
practices of 21st century as the presidents has articulated and the experience of director davis and chief ray and the others that they'll occur to have on the staffs to review the data we will eventually come out with we know that it is an expression that our city our police commission our office of citizens complaints our stakeholders and community and the board of supervisors are all working together to make sure we do doing everything we can to rebuild trust between our police department and the community it serves and make sure we're doing it in a verifiable way in a data driven way in a true way it can be reviewed so that we can off ourselves up in a transparency like never before i think this is good for the city i asked the chief this b be
12:36 pm
done we quite frankly needs to get the trust and move quickly that didn't mean on a day to day basis we give up on good policing every single day we're working with the community to do that we're working during this event we're hosting to make sure everyone is safe and conduct ourselves the higher way and informed way with all our communities members but this review is important to us important simple that we get victims of crime that is truly transparent to everyone that we are more than willing to be the best standard police department the country and that put ourselves out there to insure we gain the criticism that we need to have in order to be a better city i welcomed this i applaud the efforts of our department of justice to do that and come
12:37 pm
in i know that in talking with mr. davis and attorney stretch that is relatedly a new service the past the department of justice had to force their way into many cities without the need of cooperation and as chief ray said this is a acholic beverage effort we'll give up the information and allow ourselves to be imposed by
12:38 pm
way of practices and the practices we should have and those we should adopt this is what more than cities should do to increase the safety and the trust that we all are the process of building in everything we do i want to see is that it didn't end or start with our police department this is obviously one of the most important things we're doing with the department of justice as the mayor i have to be finding on education and focused on in equality and focused on affordable housing have to be focused on making sure our neighborhoods are not living in isolation a lot of people feel that they do sometimes and it starts with the eyes needs for the attitudes that point those goals our city continues to improve itself in every community the city to make sure that our city is responsive i want to say thank you to doj it is just a start we'll put the necessary resources when they're recommendations that are made they won't be in follow-up with the board of supervisors and the city and making sure that we comply more than comply we equally seize the opportunity to be a more modern city. >> thank you and for this chief suhr. >> i too want to join in

12:40 pm
important to note that almost immediately after the use of mario woods it was not often anybody the trust for many residents in san francisco was shaken and to that end i have conversations with the cops office specifically chief ray and director davis to see if we can engage in a review they thought was appropriate i was familiar about the las vegas police department acholic beverage youth from some years ago the 71 recommends we've began to work on with the police commission i assure you we've talked about the reengineering the use of force as an issue as director davis said they're all struggling across the country with a weapons short of a firearm we have to deal with folks with beverage weapons and other weapons especially
12:41 pm
folks in country having with something other than a firearm so to that we said on the other hand, ends up we'll speak to the deesclation and remind the officers the sanctity of life and not only them but the community and could be suspects of crime to say it work in process we've undertaken the initial start to this with a full review and the help of the department of justice and doing what we can to rebuild the trust shaken. >> open up for questions. >> one comment. >> just one thing i don't know about the timeline i apologize to the community knows how this works over the next - approximately 8 to 10 months will be the assessment
12:42 pm
and the besides the inspector duffy the officers and thoughts of documents and use of force cases going back several years and the toll members of the committee engaging the community-based and one is usually less talked about but the youth organization what are the youths of san francisco that may have concerns especially young felons so take into account the best practices and policy and imperial discipline and others policies and come up with a report we'll stay we'll continue to provide technical assistance and necessary bring in the experts along the way and give you the public report and monitoring our city of los angeles process to engage the community because our #12e789 r assessment may be one part didn't but explicit mean much the community didn't said we're aware that people have
12:43 pm
difficulty getting this we'll move around the city to people have you know through our preschool process that people have to have a voice they have to know that city government and governments are listening they have a fair opportunity to share their examiners we can learn from that. >> at this time i'll open up for questions. >> my apologies at this point. >> the district attorney said there was an obstruction in the investigation for getting documents and is your office go about to an investigation and district attorney can't get the (inaudible) on the murder of mario woods so a great question later
