Seattle City Council Select Budget Committee 11/6/19


GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY. IT IS NOVEMBER 6. THIS IS OUR BUDGET COMMITTEE. I AM SALLY BAGSHAW, CHAIR OF THE COMMITTEE. THANK YOU ALL FOR BEING HERE AFTER OUR GRUELING EVENING LAST NIGHT WITH LOOKING AT BALLOTS. I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE FRANKLY THE FACT THAT COUNCILMEMBER HERBOLD AND COUNCILMEMBER SAWANT AND COUNCILMEMBER JUAREZ WILL BE HERE. IT IS NOT OVER, BUT I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE I REALLY RESPECT THE COURAGE AND INTEGRITY ALL OF YOU HAVE SHOWN THROUGH THIS. THE COUNCIL MEMBERS WILL SEE WHERE THIS GOES. THERE ARE A LOT OF BALLOTS TO BE COUNTED. ALEX, APPEARS CONGRATULATIONS ARE DUE TO YOU AS WELL. SO WE WILL HAVE, WE WILL SEE MORE BY THE END OF THE WEEK. DIVING INTO OUR BUDGET TODAY, FOR THE PAST SEVERAL WEEKS WE ALL KNOW WE HAVE BEEN TAKING THE MAYORS BUDGET, LOOKING AT WHAT SHE HAD PROPOSED, AND THEN CLOSELY LOOKING AT OUR OWN PRIORITIES. I’M GOING TO HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THOSE PRIORITIES, BUT I ALSO WANT TO EXTEND A BIG THANKS TO MY COUNCIL COLLEAGUES FOR FOCUSING ON WHAT WE KNOW IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS WE NEEDED TO DO FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING, BETTER SITUATION FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE HOMELESS ADDING TO THE LEAD PROGRAM AND HYGIENE PROJECTS, WE WILL TALK MORE ABOUT THAT. SO WE BEGAN OUR REVIEW LATE SEPTEMBER WHEN WE FIRST GOT THE MAYORS BUDGET. WE SPENT MUCH TIME LISTENING TO OUR DEPARTMENTS, LISTENING TO THE PUBLIC, MEETING WITH PEOPLE THAT HAVE LIVED EXPERIENCES AROUND HOMELESSNESS, AND I KNOW THAT WHAT WE ARE COMING TO TODAY IS NOT FINALIZE, BUT I ALSO WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE ON THE COUNCIL HAVE SPENT A LOT OF TIME TOGETHER LOOKING AT WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO US. TODAY WHAT WE HAVE IS WHAT IS CALLED THE INITIAL BALANCING PACKAGE. I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE COUNCIL CENTRAL STAFF, ALL OF YOU AT THE TABLE AND IN THE FRONT ROWS. THANK YOU FOR SPENDING YOUR WEEKEND WITH ME LAST WEEK. MADE SUCH A DIFFERENCE TO HAVE YOU TALK TO ME ABOUT WHAT YOU SAW, WHAT NEEDED TO HAPPEN, AND I KNOW ALLIE AND DAN, THANK YOU FOR BEING THE COCHAIRS ON THIS. KIERSTEN UNDER YOUR LEADERSHIP, I THINK WE HAVE COME A LONG WAY, AND I AM FEELING VERY GOOD ABOUT WHAT THE NEXT STEPS ARE. WE HAVE RECOMMENDED MANY WORTHY PROJECTS COME OUT THINGS I BELIEVE WE ALL AGREE ON, AND I ALSO WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE BEN NOBLE, THANK YOU FOR THE REVENUE FORECAST, THANK YOU FOR WORKING WITH US, AND I KNOW WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A LOT TO HEAR TODAY. JUST ON THE OVERVIEW WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY, THIS IS THE INITIAL BUDGET PACKAGE, WE WILL HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE THINGS OUT, BUT KNOW THEY HAVE TO BE BUDGET NEUTRAL. WE ARE NOW AT A POINT WHERE WE HAVE A BALANCE PACKAGE AND ANY CHANGES THAT WE MAKE, I’M HOPING THAT COUNCIL MEMBERS CAN LOOK AT IT WITHIN THEIR OWN SET OF PRIORITIES SO WHEN WE COME BACK A WEEK FROM TODAY FOR A FINAL PACKAGE, WE WILL HAVE AS MUCH CONSISTENCY WITHOUT FINDING OURSELVES HAVING GAPS THAT WERE UNINTENDED TODAY. FOR EXAMPLE, SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE ADDED, AND AGAIN, I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE WITH GREAT THANKS THE FACT THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT A SYSTEMS APPROACH. WHAT I STARTED OUT WITH THIS BUDGET TALKING ABOUT, THAT WE WANT TO BUILD ON WHAT IS WORKING BECAUSE, AS I KNOW MY COLLEAGUE DAN SADDLE BROOK HAS SAID, WE KNOW WHAT WE CAN DO TO REALLY AFFECT CHANGE, BUT WHAT IS WORKING IS AT CAPACITY. SO WE NEED TO MAKE THESE CHANGES IN A WAY THAT MAKES SENSE. WE ARE TODAY GOING TO DISCUSS OUR AD FOR 3.5 MILLION FOR THE LEAD PROGRAM, ALL COUNCIL MEMBERS AGREED ON THAT AS ONE OF THE TOP PRIORITIES. WE ARE GOING TO ADD ONE .3 MILLION, COUNCILMEMBER HERBOLD I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR LEADERSHIP ON THIS FOR FIVE MOBILE UNITS FOR BATHROOM FACILITIES THAT CAN BE MOVED, BUT TO ADDRESS THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE THAT WAKE UP IN THE MORNING, THOSE OF US WHO ARE HOUSED, WE ARE BLESSED, THOSE WHO DON’T HAVE IT, THEY HAVE NEEDS JUST AS WE DO, AND THESE MOBILE UNITS ARE GOING TO HELP. WE ARE GOING TO ADD IT ONE .8 MILLION FOR AT LEAST TWO TINY HOME VILLAGES, WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE COUNCILMEMBER SAWANT AND COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUITO, THIS IS SOMETHING YOU AND I HAVE BEEN REALLY CHAMPIONING FOR YEARS. ONE POINT IN MILLION DOESN’T SOLVE THE PROBLEM, BUT IT IS REALLY GOING TO HELP ADDRESS. AS WE HAVE HEARD FROM MANY PEOPLE OVER THE LAST MONTH, PEOPLE WITH LIVED EXPERIENCES, WE KNOW THOSE TINY HOMES DO MORE FOR PEOPLE TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR PARTNERS, THEIR POSSESSIONS AND THEIR PETS. WE ARE ALSO GOING TO BE ADDING ONE .5 MILLION FOR USE HOMELESSNESS DIRECTED TO THE UNIVERSITY TO SEE DISTRICT, ROOTS IN PARTICULAR. I WANT TO COUNT ACKNOWLEDGE COUNCILMEMBER PACHECO AND HIS ADVOCACY FOR THAT. WE ARE LOOKING AT ADDING $1 MILLION TO EXPAND HOMELESS SERVICES FOR AMERICAN INDIAN AND ALASKA NATIVE INDIVIDUALS. THIS IS COUNCILMEMBER JUAREZ WORK WITH ECHO HAWK IN THE WORK SHE IS DOING WITH HER NEW HOMELESS BUILDING THAT IS GOING TO BE WHERE THE LAZARUS DAY CENTER IS NOW. WE ARE ALSO GOING TO BE ADDING 700,000 FOR RENTAL ASSISTANT PILOT PROGRAM. I BELIEVE COUNCILMEMBER GONZALES YOU HAVE BEEN DELETED THIS FOR HOME FOR GOOD. A 280,000 HARM REDUCTION OUTREACH PROGRAM FOR STREET BASED SEX WORKERS AND DRUG USERS. AGAIN, ALL OF US HAVE AGREED ON THIS AND COUNCILMEMBER MOSQUITO, THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP. — WE ARE ALSO GOING TO ADD TO IT 1000 FOR MENTAL HEALTH OUTREACH WORKERS, SOMETHING THAT WAS CHAMPIONED BY THE LOCAL BIA AND $1.8 MILLION IN SUPPORT FOR DOWNTOWN EMERGENCY SERVICES CENTER, BILL HOBSON CENTER, WHICH WILL BE DOWN IN RAINIER. WE WILL ADD THAT MONEY PRIMARILY FOR THEIR CLINIC. THEY HAVE RAISED MONEY FOR THE HOUSING THAT WILL BE ON TOP OF IT. BUT I’M VERY PLEASED THAT THAT HAS BEEN INCLUDED. MUCH OF OUR INITIAL BALANCING PACKAGE COORDINATES OUR HIGHEST PRIORITIES, AS WE MENTIONED FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND ADDRESSING HOMELESSNESS, THE LEAD PROGRAM AND HYGIENE, BUT THIS COORDINATES THE WORK WE’VE ALSO BEEN DOING IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM AREA. WE ARE ADDING PUBLIC SAFETY INVESTMENTS FOR POLICE AND FIRE, BUT WE ARE PUTTING PROVISOS ON SOME OF THAT SO IT GETS DIRECTED TO WHERE WE WANTED TO GO. LIKEWISE WE’RE GOING TO HEAR MORE, YOU ARE GOING TO ADDRESS THIS AROUND OUR TRANSPORTATION PRIORITIES. I PUT IN FOR THE THOMAS STREET CONNECTIONS, SOME OF THAT WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO PUT IN ADVANCE UNTIL WE KNOW MORE ABOUT THE IMPACT OF INITIATIVE 976. I AM HOPING WE CAN STILL MOVE FORWARD WITH MUCH, MOST OR ALL OF THESE PROJECTS, BUT WE HAVE TO BE REALISTIC THAT IS 976, THE RESULTS ARE COMING OUT. WE MAY NOT HAVE THE MONIES WE HOPE TO HAVE TO CONTINUE TO HAVE IMPORTANT TRANSPORTATION INVESTMENTS IN SIMPLE MAINTENANCE LIKE SOME OF THE BRIDGES, SEVERAL HUNDRED THAT WE NEED TO ADDRESS. AND THESE ARE GOING TO TAKE MAJOR COOPERATION BETWEEN THE CITY, COUNTY, STATE AND SOMEDAY WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AGAIN. WE ARE GOING TO LOOK AT PROTECTIONS FOR IMAGE IT IMMIGRANT AND LEGAL ASSISTANCE FOR INDIVIDUALS FACING EVICTION. WILL PUT IN ROUGHLY $1 MILLION AND COUNCILMEMBER JUAREZ, MAYBE YOU’RE LISTENING, BUT WE ARE GOING TO HAVE $500,000 TO BUILD A TEMPORARY REPLACEMENT FIRE STATION 31 BELT INTO OUR BUDGET AND ANOTHER 400,000 TO PROMOTE THE COMMUNITY GATHERING SPACE FOR FORTSON SQUARE, WHICH IS PART OF THE WORK BEING DONE OF CALLING ECHO HAWKS WORK A CHIEF SEATTLE CLUB. WE HAVE MONEY IN THIS BUDGET FOR THE GREEN NEW DEAL OVERSIGHT BOARD YOU ARE HOPING WE CAN INCLUDE IN THIS. >>VERY EXCITED ABOUT THAT. >>I KNOW YOU ARE. WE DO HAVE A BALANCED BUDGET. I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE AGAIN AND GREAT THANKS FOR COUNTS ROLE — COUNSEL CENTRAL STAFF ARE HELPING ME BUILD A SYSTEMS APPROACH. THIS MEANS A GREAT DEAL TO ME IN MY 10th YEAR ON THIS COUNSEL TO MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE HAVING A HARM REDUCTION APPROACH IN OUR CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM THAT WILL NOT ONLY IMPROVE THE OUTCOMES FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM ARE HEADING THAT WAY, BUT ALSO IMPROVE THE OUTCOMES FOR PEOPLE IN OUR CITY AS A WHOLE. MANY OF THE INVESTMENTS WERE RECOMMENDED BY THE EXECUTIVE, WE’RE JUST PUTTING A BIG STAR THAT SAYS THANK YOU AND WE MAY BE SUPPORTING MORE INVESTMENTS IN THESE AREAS. I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE SOMETHING WE BROUGHT UP LAST WEEK, AND THAT IS THE WEST WING, WHICH IS IMMEDIATELY NEXT-DOOR WITH THE KING COUNTY JAIL. IF YOU HAVE NOT GONE THERE, I ENCOURAGE MY COLLEAGUES AND THE PUBLIC TO TAKE A LOOK AT THAT. THIS IS A 24/7 SHELTER THAT IS PROVIDING WHAT PEOPLE NEED, A PLACE TO BE 24 SEVEN, FOOD THAT IS BROUGHT IN BY OUR OUTREACH GROUP, THE OPERATION SACK LUNCH AND GETTING THE SERVICES TO PEOPLE THAT THEY NEED WHEN THEY NEED IT AND THE RIGHT TYPE OF SERVICE. AGAIN, THAT IS WHAT OUR INVESTMENTS ARE GOING TO BE DOING AS WE COORDINATE THIS, AND I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND GIVE THANKS TO ALL WHO HAVE BEEN GIVING INPUT, WHETHER IT IS OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, ARE BUSINESS LEADERS, OUR LABOR LEADERS, THE CITY ATTORNEYS OFFICE, OUR JUDGES, AND AGAIN, PEOPLE WITH LIFT EXPERIENCE YOU PROVIDED US WITH INPUT WE HAVE USED TO BUILD ON THIS NEW PACKAGE. AT THIS POINT I’M GOING TO ADD NOTHING MORE, BUT TO ASK TOM AND LISA OF OUR COUNCIL AND CENTRAL STAFF TO BEGIN WALKING THROUGH THIS. QUESTIONS, OF COURSE, WE WILL ANSWER, AND THEN AGAIN AT THE END OF THE SESSION TODAY, WE WILL TAKE PUBLIC COMMENT. NEXT WEDNESDAY WILL BE OUR FINAL BALANCING PACKAGE. WE WILL AGAIN HAVE PUBLIC COMMENT AT THE END OF THAT DAY, THEN OUR VOTE WHERE WE ACTUALLY WILL BE VOTING ON THE PACKAGE IS TUESDAY NOVEMBER 19. AND WE WILL GO THROUGH LINE ITEM BY LINE ITEM ON ALL THE ITEMS, AND THEN THE FINAL VOTE AND PASSAGE WE HOPE WILL BE THE MONDAY BEFORE THINK GIVING. ANY COMMENTS? >>THANK YOU CHAIR BAGSHAW. I WANTED TO IN THE VERY LONG LIST OF APPROPRIATELY GIVEN PUBLIC THINGS, I WANTED TO AT A TAKE YOU TO YOU AS YOUR LEADERSHIP IS THE BUDGET CHAIR. THIS IS THE SECOND YEAR YOU SERVED IN THIS ROLE AND REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR THOUGHTFUL AND CAREFUL APPROACH TO THE BUDGET. BY MAKING SURE WE UP HERE HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION WE NEED IN TERMS OF PROCESS AND NEXT STEPS AND PROCEDURES, AND I THINK YOU HAVE DONE A REALLY GOOD JOB OF PROVIDING US WITH A SOLID BALANCED REVISED INITIAL PACKAGE, AND JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THAT. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >>IT IS NOT EASY WERE, I RECOGNIZE THAT. >>COUNCILWOMAN HERBOLD. >>DOES A SMALL ADDITION. I ALSO WANT TO THANK YOU FOR BEING FAIR TO ALL OF US AND RECOGNIZING THAT A COUNSEL OF NINE PEOPLE, WE HAVE A LOT OF SHARED GOALS BUT ALSO HAVE GOALS THAT ARE IMPORTANT TO US INDIVIDUALLY. SO I THINK THE JOB OF THE BUDGET CHAIR IS TO USE THAT POWER IN A WAY THAT ACCOMPLISHES BOTH GOALS, AND YOU’VE DONE SO. AND FINALLY, I WANT TO RECOGNIZE THAT THIS BALANCED BUDGET IS NOT ONLY A MANIFESTATION OF THIS COUNCILS VALUES, BUT EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY, A MANIFESTATION OF YOURS. SO THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT. SOME REALLY IMPORTANT THINGS IN HERE. >>THANK YOU. >>WITH THAT TEARJERKER, LET ME PASS IT ON. >>CAN I SAY SOMETHING? IT IS NOT TO COMPLEMENT YOU. >>THANK YOU. VERY HARD FOR ME TO TAKE. VERY HARD. >>NOT THAT I DON’T AGREE WITH EVERYTHING SAID. WITH 150 SOME ITEMS TODAY, ARE YOU LOOKING FOR US TO CHIME IN ON EACH ITEM ARE REALLY JUST LET CENTRAL STAFF WALK-THROUGH AND IF WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS — >>I THINK THE LATTER. UNLESS YOU HAVE SOMETHING WANT TO ADD OR SPECIFICALLY WE HAVE NOT HER BEFORE — >>LET’S MOVE THROUGH IT. >>WE HAVE ALL TALKED ABOUT THIS MULTIPLE TIMES NOW AND HAVE INDIVIDUAL CONVERSATIONS ABOUT WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO EACH OF US. SO MOVING THROUGH IT. AND AS YOU POINTED OUT, WHAT WAS THE NUMBER? 157 AND 22 SLIDES OR SOME SUCH. >>SOMETHING CLOSE TO THAT. >>SO WE HAVE PLENTY TO DO. I DON’T WANT TO SHUT DOWN CONVERSATION, BUT IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANYTHING EITHER NEW OR SOMETHING YOU WANT TO HAVE FINE- TUNED, LET’S JUST KEEP MOVING THROUGH THIS. THANK YOU. >>GOOD MORNING MADAM CHAIR, MEMBERS OF THE SELECT BUDGET COMMITTEE. I AM WITH COUNSEL MECK CENTRAL STAFF JOINED BY MY CO-BUDGET COORDINATOR LISA K AND ALSO FELLOW COLLEAGUES FROM CENTRAL STAFF. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTRODUCTORY REMARKS. THEY WERE A HELPFUL SET UP FOR THE REST OF TODAY’S PRESENTATION. BEFORE I GO INTO THE SUBJECT MATTER, ON BEHALF OF CENTRAL STAFF, I WOULD LIKE TO ECHO THE THANKS WE HAVE TO COUNCIL MEMBERS AND THEIR OFFICE STAFF IN WORKING THROUGH AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF DETAILED FINANCIAL INFORMATION AND BUDGET PROPOSALS . IT IS NOT EASY WERE, AND IT IS GOING REALLY SMOOTHLY, AND WE APPRECIATE THE BACK-AND-FORTH. WE ARE A LITTLE OVER HALFWAY THROUGH THIS PROCESS, AND STILL HAVE A WAYS TO GO. BUT EVERYTHING IS GOING WELL. I WANT TO ALSO ON BEHALF OF CENTRAL STAFF EXTEND A SPECIAL THANKS TO YOU MADAM CHAIR FOR YOUR CLEAR PRIORITIES AT THE BEGINNING OF OUR BUDGETING PROCESS, AND YOUR COMMITMENT OVER THE LAST TWO WEEKENDS WORKING WITH STAFF TO PUT THE PACKAGE TOGETHER, AND THAT WENT VERY WELL AS WELL. SO THE WAY WE HAVE THIS SET UP THIS MORNING IS, TO WORK FROM THE AGENDA FOLLOWING THE PRIORITIZATION SCHEDULE THAT YOU HAVE OUTLINED SO THE HOMELESSNESS, HYGIENE, HOUSING, LEAD AND OTHER PRIORITIES, WE’RE GOING TO COVER 151 INDIVIDUAL AREAS, AND WE ARE GOING TO HIT THE HIGHLIGHTS, BUT THERE WILL BE OPPORTUNITIES TO DISCUSS EACH ISSUE IF DESIRED, AND WE WILL BRING THE RELEVANT SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS FROM CENTRAL STAFF TO THE TABLE TO ASSIST THAT DISCUSSION AS NECESSARY. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MEMBERS WILL NOTE AS WE GO THROUGH IS THAT IN SOME CASES THE ORIGINAL PROPOSED COUNSEL BUDGET ACTION HAS BEEN REVISED FROM WHAT WAS DISCUSSED WEEKS AGO. AND THIS IS IN THE CONTEXT OF THE LIMITED RESOURCE AVAILABILITY THAT WE STARTED WITH IN TERMS OF A FULLY ALLOCATED BUDGET PROPOSAL THAT WAS RECEIVED FROM THE MAYORS OFFICE. SO — TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES. WHERE DIFFERENCES DO EXIST, THERE ARE A NUMBER OF REASONS FOR THOSE. IN SOME CASES, THE NUMBER IS DIFFERENT BECAUSE THE TECHNICAL CALCULATION OF A POSITION ADD, FOR EXAMPLE, IS SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT THAN THE PROPOSAL. THAT IS JUST A TECHNICAL CHANGE. IN OTHER CASES, GIVEN THAT WE ARE DEALING WITH SCORES RESOURCES, THEIR ITEMS IDENTIFIED AS SCALABLE THAT CAN BE DELAYED IN SOME WAY. FOR EXAMPLE, HIRING A POSITION SLIGHTLY LATER IN THE YEAR. AND SO, WHEN THOSE OPPORTUNITIES MADE SENSE, THEY WERE EMBRACED. AND FINALLY, GIVEN THAT ONGOING REVENUE IS ALWAYS AT A PREMIUM, IN THE CASES WHERE AN ONGOING TO ONE-TIME REVENUE SHIFT COULD BE MADE, THOSE OPTIONS WERE CHOSEN IN SOME CASES AS WELL. SO AGAIN, AT THIS POINT I THINK I WILL JUST DIVE IN AND START. WE’RE LOOKING AT AGENDA ITEM 1 UNDER THE HOMELESSNESS PRIORITIZATION CATEGORY. COUNSEL BUDGET ACTIONM 181 ADS 206,000 GENERAL FUND ONE TIME TO THE HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT TO EXTEND FOR 24 MONTHS THE EXISTING PILOT PROGRAM THAT PROVIDES TO MENTAL HEALTH OUTREACH WORKERS TO SERVE THE UNIVERSITY DISTRICT. ITEM NUMBER TWO COUNSEL BUDGET ACTIONM 2 B ONE AT $60,000 TO THE GENERAL FUND TO THE HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT TO SET UP A NEW TINY HOME VILLAGE FOR 40 HOUSEHOLDS WHICH INCLUDES 142,000 AND ONE-TIME FUNDS OF 458,000 AND ONGOING FUNDS. THIS ACTION ALSO ESTABLISHES A PROVISO. ITEM 3 IS COUNSEL BUDGET ACTIONM 3 B ONE. WHICH AS TO THE HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT TO EXPAND THE NUMBER OF TINY HOME VILLAGES. IT INCLUDES 600,000 GENERAL FUND AND ONE-TIME FUNDING AND 600 THOUSAND AND ONGOING FUNDING. THE TOTAL FUNDING IS ESTIMATED TO SUPPORT A SINGLE NEW TINY HOME VILLAGE THAT WILL PRIORITIZE REFERRALS FROM THE TEAM, LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSISTED DIVERSION PROGRAM AND THE SEATTLE MISCIBLE COURT. THE ACTION ALSO ESTABLISHES TWO PROVISOS. ITEM 4 IS A SLIDE AT THE REQUEST A REPORT ON SITES FOR A TINY HOME VILLAGE. ITEM 5, WHICH IS COUNSEL BUDGETM — FIVE DEATH -B AS WILL PROVIDE DOLLARS ONE-TIME FUNDING TO HST, THE HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT FOR RELOCATION AND BUILDING RENOVATIONS FOR A YOUTH HOMELESSNESS SHELTER. ITEM NUMBER SIX, WHICH IS COUNSEL BUDGET ACTIONM 6 -B — ONE. AS $200,000 TO THE HST TO EXPAND OUTREACH TO HOMELESS INDIVIDUALS RESIDING IN UNSANCTIONED ENCAMPMENTS IN NORTH SEATTLE, INCLUDING IN THE LAKE CITY AND AURORA NEIGHBORHOODS. ITEM NUMBER SEVEN, WHICH IS COUNSEL BUDGET ACTIONM — 7 -B –. AT 400,000 FROM THE GENERAL FUND TO HST TO OUTREACH AND FLEXURAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR VEHICLE RESIDENTS SUCH AS THE SERVICES OF THE SCOFFLAW MITIGATION PROGRAM. ITEM NUMBER EIGHT CBA BUDGET ACTION M ADDS $158,000 TO THE HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT TO START UP AND OPERATE IN OVERNIGHT SAFE PARKING LOT FOR INDIVIDUALS DRAWLING IN VEHICLES. THIS IS ACHIEVED WITH 33,000 AND ONE-TIME GENERAL FUNDS AND 125,000 IN ONGOING FUNDS. ITEM 9 AS SHOWN CURRENTLY HAS BEEN REPLACED. I BELIEVE THE REPLACEMENT ITEM HAS BEEN DISTRIBUTED. THIS ITEM SHOULD REPRESENTM 10 B ONE WHICH HAS $1 MILLION FROM THE GENERAL FUND, INCLUDING OF WHICH 30 $395,000 IS ONE TIME, TO HSD TO EXPAND THE HOMELESS SERVICE FOR AMERICAN INDIAN AND ALASKA NATIVE HOMELESS INDIVIDUALS. ITEM 10 WHICH IS COUNSEL BUDGET ACTIONM 11 -A 2. >>EXCUSE ME, ON NINE DID I MISS SOMETHING HERE? YOU’RE ADDING $10,000 ARE GOING TO SUPPORT TRANSPORTATION AND ACTIVITIES FOR LOW INCOME SENIORS, AND THAT WAS IN ADDITION TO THE $25,000 I BELIEVE THAT THE MAYOR HAD PUT IN, SO SPECIFICALLY, WE’RE LOOKING AT $35,000 HERE? SO TALK TO ME MORE ABOUT THE $1 MILLION. >>I CAN. THERE WAS AN ERROR IN THE INITIAL POSTED BUDGET. IT SHOULD BEM 10 -B ONE FOR THAT ITEM. IT IS ALSO LISTED LATER IN THE AGENDA.M 10 B 1 AND THIS IS FOR SERVICES TO AMERICAN INDIAN AND ALASKAN NATIVE INDIVIDUALS. THAT IS A TOTAL PACKAGE. 395,000, THAT IS ONE TIMERS THE OTHER PIECES OF IT ARE ONGOING. >>ONTO OUR AGENDAS. DISPERSION IS WRONG. >>HSD 10 -B 1 WAS LISTED TWICE IN THE AGENDA. INADVERTENTLY IN THE HOMELESSNESS SECTION AND LATER IN THE AGENDA AND THE OTHER DEPARTMENTS AND TOPICS. SEVERALLY, ITEM 9 SHOULD’VE BEENM 10 B 1. >>THAT IS WHAT PATTY W█AS TRYING TO TELL ME AS I WAS WALKING DOWN THE HALL. THANK YOU. AND I APOLOGIZE FOR NOT CATCHING IT. BUT AT LEAST WE’RE ON THE SAME PAGE. LET’S MOVE ON TO ITEM 10. >>ITEM 10 IS BUDGET ACTIONM 11 82 — LETTER A TO. WHICH HAS 100,000 GENERAL FUND TO THE HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT FOR LEGAL SERVICES AND REPRESENTATION FOR YOUTH FOR THOSE PROVIDED BY LEGAL COUNSEL FOR YOUTH AND CHILDREN. ITEM 11 BUDGET ACTION M AND 12 B1 AT 75,000 FROM THE GENERAL FUND TO HSD TO FIND A SMART WALLET TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM TO ENABLE DONATIONS TO INDIVIDUALS EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS SUCH AS THE PROGRAM OPERATED BY SAMARITAN. >>QUESTION I HAVE ABOUT THAT PARTICULAR AD. IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT FOR EVERY INDIVIDUAL WHO HAS A SAMARITAN BEACON, THERE IS AN EXPECTATION THAT THEY ARE RECEIVING CASE MANAGEMENT SERVICES. I AM WONDERING, AND I HAVE READ OF COURSE ONLY ANECDOTALLY, I DON’T HAVE ANY DATA ABOUT THIS, BUT ANECDOTALLY I HAVE READ THAT SERVICE, SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCIES THAT PROVIDE CASE MANAGEMENT HAVE BEEN FRUSTRATED BY AN EXPECTATION THAT BEACON HOLDERS CAN ACCESS OR SHOULD BE ACCESSING VERY LIMITED CASE MANAGEMENT SERVICES, AND I AM WONDERING, SHOULD THERE BE A CORRESPONDING ADD TO PAY FOR THE NECESSARY UNFUNDED CASE MANAGEMENT SERVICES ASSOCIATED WITH THESE BEACONS? >>THAT IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE AS IT IS NOW. YOU ARE CORRECT THAT IN ORDER FOR AN INDIVIDUAL EXPENSING HOMELESSNESS WHO IS PARTICIPATING IN THE SAMARITAN PROGRAM TO ACCESS THEIR FUNDS, TYPICALLY THEY ARE REQUIRED TO BE MEETING WITH A CASE MANAGER, WHICH WOULD TAKE TIME FROM OTHER TYPES OF CASE MANAGEMENT ACTIVITIES AS THEY MEET INDIVIDUALLY WITH THAT INDIVIDUAL. WHETHER OR NOT THAT INCREASES THE OVERALL TIME THAT HAS ME SPENT WITH THAT INDIVIDUAL, I DON’T HAVE DATA ON THAT. WE CAN WORK TO GET MORE INFORMATION FOR YOU. >>I WOULD LIKE THAT. THANK YOU FOR BRINGING THAT UP COUNCILMEMBER HERBOLD. >>PLEASE CONTINUE. >>MOVING TO ITEM 12, COUNSEL BUDGET ACTIONM 13 B1 , THIS ITEM ADDS 700,000 DOLLARS GENERAL FUND AND ONE-TIME FUNDING TO THE HSD TO CREATE AND EVALUATE A RENTAL ASSISTANCE PILOT FOR INDIVIDUALS WERE OVER 50 YEARS, 850 OR OLDER WITH LIMITED INCOME, AND ARE AT RISK ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS. ITEM 13, WHICH WOULD, COUNSEL BUDGET ACTIONM-15 A2 IN PROSE IS IMPROVISER ON THE NAVIGATION TEAM APPRECIATIONS IN HSD.

ITEM NUMBER 14 — ITEM NUMBER 15 REDUCES THE COUNSEL BUDGET ACTION M 60 LETTER A 1 , PRETTY REDUCES THE SAVE PARKING PROGRAM AND HSD DEPARTMENT BY $125,000 GENERAL FUND. SO JUST AS BACKGROUND, THE 2020 PROPOSED BUDGET INCLUDES $250,000 GF AND ONGOING FUNDING FOR THIS PROGRAM AND EXPANDED THE PROGRAM BY $125,000 FROM THE GENERAL FUND AND ONE-TIME FUNDING FROM ANOTHER SPEND IN 2019. THE PROGRAM AND THE PROPOSED BUDGT ONLY WORKS WITH FAITH- BASED INSTITUTIONS TO IDENTIFY POTENTIAL PARKING SPACES. THIS BUDGET ACTION REDUCES THE ONGOING FUNDING FOR THIS PROGRAM AND REDIRECTS THE FUNDING FOR A SAFE PARKING PROGRAM AT UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS AS REFLECTED IN BUDGET ACTIONM EIGHT -B 1. >>FOR MY RECOLLECTION, DID WE HAVE ANY FUNDS IN THE 2019 BUDGET FOR THIS PROGRAM? >>NOT FOR UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, WHICH IS THE BUDGET ACTION FORM 8 -B 1. THE 2020 BUDGET BOTH PROVIDE $250,000 IN ONGOING FUNDING FOR A SAFE PARKING PILOT. THIS CURRENT ACTION WE ARE LOOKING AT, M 60, TAKES APPROXIMATELY HALF OF THAT ONGOING FUNDING AND DIRECTED TO BE USED FOR A SEPARATE BUDGET ACTION. >>THE 2019 MONEY, OR THOSE ABLE TO BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF A SAFE PARKING PROJECT. >>HSD ANTICIPATES THERE WILL BE APPROXIMATELY HALF OF THOSE FUNDS THAT WILL NOT BE UTILIZED IN 2019, THE MAYORS PROPOSED BUDGET ACTUALLY TAKES THAT UNSPENT $125,000 AND CARRIES IT FORWARD FOR THE SAME PURPOSE TO 2020 SO THERE WOULD BE AN OVERALL INCREASE IF YOU LOOKED AT JUST THE $250,000 AND ONGOING, THE GOAL IS TO REACH 30 PARKING SPOTS, TAKING THE UNUSED MONEY FROM 2019 AND ADDING IT OR LAYERING ON TOP. IDEALLY, THEY WOULD GET TO 40 SPACES. AT THIS TIME, THERE ONLY FIVE ADDITIONAL SPACES OR A TOTAL OF SEVEN THAT HAVE BEEN ACHIEVED WITH THE PILOT. THERE IS WORK TO CONTINUE EXPANDING THAT AND NUMEROUS FAITH-BASED INSTITUTIONS BEING SPOKEN TO. BUT THAT GOAL HAS NOT BEEN MET YET. THANK YOU. >>I AM ALWAYS IMPRESSED BY WHAT YOU HAVE IN THOSE BRAIN CELLS OF YOURS. SO THANK YOU. PLEASE CONTINUE. >>ITEM 16 IS COUNSEL BUDGET ACTIONM 61 -A 1. IS $345,000 GENERAL FROM ONE-TIME PENDING FUNDING FOR THE HUMAN SERVICES DEPARTMENT. >>I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK TO THIS BRIEFLY. THIS IS FOR THE NEW REGIONAL GOVERNANCE EFFORT, AND I KNOW WE HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH THIS. I DO NOT WANT THE EXECUTIVE OFFICE TO THINK THAT WE DO NOT WANT THIS PROGRAM. WE DO. WE DON’T BELIEVE THAT ADDING PEOPLE RIGHT AWAY IN THE FIRST QUARTER THAT WE ARE GOING TO BE READY FOR THAT, THAT WE WILL HAVE AN EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR THAT WILL NEED TO BE HIRED. THERE ARE FABULOUS CITY EMPLOYEES AND COUNTY EMPLOYEES THAT CAN COME TOGETHER AND HELP MOVE THIS FORWARD, SO THIS 345 IS NOT TO BE RECEIVED AS A SIGNAL THAT I AM NOT SUPPORTING THIS REGIONAL GOVERNANCE THAT MANY OF US HAVE BEEN WORKING ON ALL YEAR . IT IS THAT IT IS A TINY ISSUE. >>THANK YOU. ITEM 17 IS COUNSEL BUDGET ACTION M 62 -A -1 WHICH REDUCES BY $1 MILLION GENERAL FUND THE APPROPRIATION IN HSD WHICH IS PROPOSED TO RELOCATE TWO TINY HOME VILLAGES. >>AND I BELIEVE FOR CLARIFICATION THAT IT IS OUR DESIRE TO SUPPORT AN EFFORT TO RETAIN THE GEORGETOWN TINY HOME VILLAGE.

ITEM 19, A PROVISO ON THE STRATEGIC INVESTMENT FUND THAT IS CREATED IN THE 2020 PROPOSED BUDGET IN FINANCE GENERAL. >>DO YOU WANT TO DESCRIBE THAT PROVISO JUST BRIEFLY? >>MADAM CHAIR, THAT PROVISO WOULD PRECLUDE THE EXECUTIVE FROM SPENDING THE MONEY THAT WILL BE IN FINANCE GENERAL FOR THE STRATEGIC INVESTMENT FUND UNTIL THE EXECUTIVE PRESENTS A PROPOSED SPENDING PLAN TO THE COUNSEL THAT THEY REVIEW AND APPROVE BY ORDINANCE. ADDITIONALLY, WE ADDED SOME LANGUAGE THAT HAS SPECIFICALLY IN THE PREPARATION OF THE SPENDING PLAN TO CONSIDER CRITERIA SIMILAR TO THAT USED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE IN THE PREPARATION OF THE CRITERIA THAT WILL THEN DRIVE THE SPENDING PLAN. WE MARRIED ACTUALLY SOME LANGUAGE FROM A SLIDE WE WERE ABLE TO INCORPORATE INTO THIS PROVISO, THAT I THINK MEETS THE INTEREST IN PARTICULAR OF COUNCILMEMBER O’BRIEN. >>ITEM 20, COUNSEL BUDGET ACTION OH -1 -B -1 AS $50,000 IN 2020 OF FUND BALANCE FROM THE OFFICE OF HOUSING OPERATING FUND TO SUPPORT IMPLEMENTATION OF COMMUNITY REFERENCE POLICIES FOR B FUNDED AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROJECTS IN NEIGHBORHOODS AT HIGH RISK OF DISPLACEMENT.

THESE WILL BE APPLIED FOR FUNDING IN OH, OFFICE OF HOUSING 2019 NOTICE OF FUNDING AVAILABILITY PROCESS. THIS FUNDING INCREASE WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED BY REDUCING FUNDING OF SEVERAL PROGRAMS SUPPORTED BY THE MERCER SALES PROCEEDS IN THE 2020 PROPOSED BUDGET. THESE OTHER INCREASES ARE ACHIEVED WITH COUNSEL BUDGET ACTION 9 A 1. I APOLOGIZE, THAT IS THE ACTION THAT FREEZES THE FUNDS. IN ADDITION, THIS BUDGET ACTION STAYS THE COUNSEL INTENT TO APPROPRIATE $7 MILLION IN ADDITIONAL REAL ESTATE EXCISE TAX TO 2021 TO 2026, THE ADDITIONAL $7 MILLION WILL BE USED TO MAKE FINANCING COMMITMENTS FOR HOUSING PROJECTS SEEKING FUNDING IN THE 2019 AND OFA. >>I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE COUNCILMEMBER MOSQEDA FOR PUSHING THIS FORWARD AND TO ALL OF OUR COLLEAGUES FOR NOTING THIS IS ONE OF OUR TOP PRIORITIES. >>ITEM 24, THIS IS COUNSEL BUDGET ACTION OH 8 B1.

I WOULD SAY THAT I AM NOW IN THE LEAD CATEGORY OF PRIORITIES. SO I MADE THE TRANSITION FROM HYGIENE PRIORITY TO LEAD WITHOUT NOTIFYING, BUT CLEARLY WE ARE IN THAT AREA NOW.

FOR BIKE INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS TO BE SPENT ON BIKE FACILITIES ON MARTIN LUTHER KING WAY JUNIOR — JUNIOR WAY, I APOLOGIZE, BEACON AVENUE OR THE GEORGETOWN SOUTH PARK TRAIL.

I DID HAVE FOLKS REMEMBER A FORM B AS RELATES TO THE FUNDING USE OF THE T AND C TAX, AND I’M VERY LIKELY GOING TO BRING THAT BACK IN THE FORM OF A FORM C FROM THE TRANSPORTATION ISSUE PAPER THAT WE HEARD AT THE START OF BUDGET. WE KNOW THAT WE WERE ANTICIPATING 30 $2.9 MILLION OF VEHICLE LICENSING FEE REVENUE THROUGH THE SEATTLE TRANSPORTATION BENEFIT DISTRICT IN 2020. OF THOSE FUNDS, 24 MILLION SUPPORTS TRANSPORTATION BENEFIT DISTRICT PROGRAMS IS APPROVED BY THE VOTERS AND 8.3 MILLION SUPPORTS THE SICK INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENTS SUCH AS THE NEIGHBOR TRAFFIC CONTROL AND POTHOLE PROGRAMS. WE HAVE A $20 MILLION RESERVE FUND TO HELP COVER METRO SERVICE IN 2020 IN ANTICIPATION OF THE PASSAGE OF 976, BUT EVEN WITH USING THAT $20 MILLION I BELIEVE THAT 175,000 HOURS ARE PROJECTED TO BE CUT IN 2020, AND THE MEMO WE RECEIVED AS PART OF THE REGIONAL TRANSIT COMMITTEE ESTIMATES THAT OUR REDUCTIONS JUST IN SEATTLE WOULD BE 115 — 150,000 HOURS IN MARCH, 60,000 IN SEPTEMBER, AND AGAIN, THESE CUTS WILL AFFECT SOME TRIPS ON NEARLY ALL OF THE 74 ROUTES RECEIVING SOME FUNDING FROM THE TRANSPORTATION BENEFIT DISTRICT. SO I AM LIKELY TO PROPOSE IN A FORM C THAT WE USE THE 30 $2.9 MILLION OF TRANSPORTATION NETWORK TAX DOLLARS TO ADDRESS THIS SHORTFALL. I RECOGNIZE THAT THERE IS SOME COMPLEXITY ABOUT THAT BECAUSE OF THE TIMING AND HOW THOSE FUNDS ARE ANTICIPATED TO COME IN VERSUS WHEN WE WOULD NEED THEM FOR METRO SERVICES, BUT THAT IS SOMETHING I AM HOPING WE CAN WORK OUT BETWEEN NOW AND FRIDAY. >>THANK YOU. >>MOVING ONTO ITEM 46.

THAT DEFINE THE MONEY BUT THEY CAN MAKE ADJUSTMENTS AT THAT POINT BUT THIS IS IT LIKE A BINDING — >>RIGHT. THE APPROPRIATIONS OF THE MAJORITY OF TNC TAX REVENUES WOULD BE MADE NEXT YEAR.

AND THE PROVISO IN PARTICULAR STATES THAT THAT PROVISO WILL BE ACTED UPON BY COUNSEL IN THE FUTURE, THE INTENTION IS TO ACT AFTER THAT SLA HAS BEEN RECEIVED. >>NOT TO DENIGRATE OR CRITICIZE EITHER DEPARTMENT ON THIS, MY POINT IS THAT THIS KIND OF LEGISLATION JUST REQUIRES A LOT OF PROCESS, A LOT OF TRANSPARENCY, AFFECTS A LOT OF STAKEHOLDERS, AND SO, I DON’T THINK A DEPARTMENT OR EXECUTIVE CAN DO IT IN A VACUUM. THAT IS FINE. >>THE APPROPRIATIONS OF THAT FUD WILL REQUIRE FUTURE COUNSEL ACTION. THE NEXT BUDGET ACTION NUMBER 60, THAT WOULD SUBSTITUTE RESOLUTION VERSION D3 OF 319144 VERSION D1 D AND ADOPT RESOLUTION 31914.

IN SAYING THAT, I’M GOING TO PROBABLY DO A LOT MORE WRITING AND TRYING TO PARTICIPATE AND UNDERSTAND BY COMING TO THE COMMITTEE MINUTES. I JUST FOUND OUT A LOT OF STUFF I DIDN’T KNOW BEFORE. I REALLY THINK THAT, I’M GOING TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT PEOPLE THAT MAYBE WILL HAVE A SPECIAL TEST, 20 PEOPLE, MEDICATION FOR ONE OF THEM, 10 OF THEM AND SUBLIMINAL MEDICATION FOR ANOTHER GROUP. I REALLY THINK THAT WE REALLY NEED TO HAVE NOT MAKE MORE TEST KITS OUT OF HUMAN BEINGS THAN JUST GETTING THERE NECESSITIES MET AND BEING WORK COMPASSIONATE STANDARD IN THESE HOMELESS FACILITIES. AND ALSO ENVIRONMENTS WORK ON THE VOLATILE AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIORS IN THE PROGRAMS AS WELL AS OUTSIDE AND PEOPLES ATTITUDES. I WILL EAT OF IT AT THAT. I’M GRATEFUL FOR EVERY OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE TELL PEOPLE THE IMPORTANCE OF THEIR LIVES AS WELL AS HER BUSINESS PURPOSES ARE VERY IMPORTANT FOR US TO HELP GET HER NEEDS MET, BUT ALSO PARTICIPATE AS HELPING MODERNIZE THE INTENTIONS OF NOT ONLY OURSELVES IN 50 STATES, BUT ALSO THE GLOBAL WORLD. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU JANICE. STEVE AND GORDON, THEM BRIAN. >>IS STILL NOT WORKING AT LEAST IN THE NORTH AND WHERE WE ARE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH PEOPLE PUTTING THE HOUSING ON-SITE. I THINK WE SHOULD BE RAISING THE FEE TO GET CLOSER TO THE 50- 50 GOAL. I THINK THAT WOULD ALSO HELP WITH A VERY BIG PROBLEM IN THE CITY. YOU DECLARED AN EMERGENCY, AND THEN OF NOT DONE A WHOLE LOT ABOUT IMPROVING THE SITUATION. I THINK THAT WE SHOULD BE ALSO PASSING A ORDINANCE CLEARCUTTING ENVIRONMENTALISTS LIKE WE HAVE AND WASHINGTON D.C. PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TO BE THE BEST ENVIRONMENTALISTS IN THE WORLD AND STILL DON’T DO THE BASIC STUFF. THERE IS NO TREE HUGGERS HERE ON THE SEATTLE SIDDLE COUNCIL IT APPEARS. SEATTLE NEEDS TO TAKE A BETTER LOOK AT NOT SPENDING ALL HER MONEY ON ENABLING, WE SHOULD BE MOVING PEOPLE OUT OF HOMELESSNESS. HOMELESS THIS IS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO MAKE PEOPLE COMFORTABLE. WE SHOULD BE MOVING TO MOVE PEOPLE OUT. AND THAT SHOULD ALSO MEAN TALKING TO OUR FRIENDS AT THE STATE LEGISLATURE AND THE GOVERNOR BECAUSE WE SPEND SEATTLE RESOURCES IT APPEARS WEAKENING THE STATE úENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT, BUT HOW ABOUT GETTING MORE MONEY FOR MENTAL HEALTH, MORE MONEY FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE, THESE ARE VERY LARGE PARTS OF THE PROBLEM OF PEOPLE ON THE STREET. UNTIL WE START WORKING ON THOSE THINGS, AND NOT JUST MAKING PEOPLE FEEL COMFORTABLE, WE ARE GOING TO HAVE A CONTINUED PROBLEM. I ADMIT THE FEDS HAVE GIVEN UP ON HOUSING, AND THE USED TO BE A VERY BIG SUPPORT, AND THAT ONE IS PROBABLY NOT WHEN YOU SPEND A LOT OF TIME ON BUT YOU SHOULD AT LEAST BE TALKING TO YOUR FRIENDS AT THE STATE LEGISLATURE ABOUT DOING THINGS THAT ARE GOING TO MAKE SEATTLE BETTER THAN IT IS RIGHT NOW. SO HOPEFULLY ALL CHILD FACILITIES THAT THE CITY SUPPORTS WILL BE BOTTOM-UP. THE LOWEST PAID WORKER GETS FIRST CRACK. >>THANK YOU STEVE. AND I WANT TO REASSURE YOU THAT WE ARE SPENDING A LOT OF TIME WITH HER COLLEAGUES TALKING TO THEM IN THE LEGISLATURE. THE DON’T THINK WE AREN’T. NICE TO SEE YOU. >>GOOD MORNING COUNCIL MEMBERS. LIKE MANY OF YOU I’M STILL PROCESSING THE ELECTION LAST NIGHT. ONE THING IS FOR SURE IS THAT 976 WILL BE A DISASTER FOR BOTH THE STATE AND OUR CITY. WE ARE COMMITTED TO WORKING COLLABORATIVELY WITH ALL OF YOU TO FIND SOLUTIONS, AND I WOULD URGE US TO DO SO CAUTIOUSLY IN A WAY THAT CENTERS OUR VALUES AND PRIORITIES AS A CITY. IN THAT REGARD, MAINTAINING THINGS LIKE THE THOMAS STREET PROJECT IS REALLY CRITICAL, TWO THIRDS OF EVERY NIGHT OF THE YEAR OR TWO OUT OF EVERY THREE NIGHTS OF THE A RATHER THERE WILL BE A MAJOR EVENT DOWN THERE, SO MAKE SURE WERE ABLE TO GET PEOPLE WALKING AND BIKING IS GOING TO BE REALLY CRITICAL. I’M HOPING WE CAN FIND OTHER SOURCES OF FUNDING FOR BACKFILLING FROM 976. THE CHEMISTRY PROJECT IS BEEN SUCH A FUN ONE TO WORK ON BECAUSE IT IS BROUGHT TOGETHER SUCH A WIDE RANGE OF STAKEHOLDERS FROM JUST RECENTLY THE SEATTLE CHILDREN’S THEATRE SIGNED ON IN SUPPORT AND EXPEDIA. TO HAVE THIS REALLY WIDE- RANGING GROUP SUPPORTING THIS PROJECT BECAUSE EVERYONE IS SEEING THE VALUE IN IT. AND THANK YOU TO COUNCILMEMBER BANK SHOT FOR PROPOSING THE POSITION. IF YOU OTHER THINK USE. THE HOME ZONE PILOT EXTENSION IS FANTASTIC. THANK YOU FOR EXTENDING THAT. THE ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION COORDINATOR FOR THE SCHOOL DISTRICT WILL BE SO HELPFUL IN GETTING KIDS TO SCHOOL. IT IS REALLY GREAT TO SEE IN THEIR. ADDITIONAL FUNDING TO BRING BIKE FACILITIES IN SOUTHEAST SEATTLE IS SORELY NEEDED. SO THANK YOU FOR THAT INCREASE. AND THE LONGHOUSE CONNECTION, WORKING WITH THE TRIBE TO TRY TO DO RIGHT BY THEM AND GET PEOPLE TO THE LONGHOUSE IS REALLY CRITICAL. SO THANK YOU FOR THAT AS WELL. THANK YOU ALL FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING. I HOPE WE CAN WORK TOGETHER TO FIND SOLUTIONS TO ADDRESS THE DISASTER IN A WAY THAT DOESN’T FURTHER THE PAIN WE WILL ALL INCUR. THANK YOU. >>BRIAN. >>COUNCIL MEMBERS, GUESTS, DEPARTMENT HEADS, IN CASE YOU GUYS WEREN’T AWARE OF WHO I AM, THIS IS WHO I AM. FRONT PAGE. WHAT I’M HERE FOR TODAY IS BECAUSE I KIND OF BROWSING THROUGH THIS, AND THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF THIS BUDGET THING, THERE WASN’T ANYTHING THAT HAD TO DO A SHELTER REFORM OR PAYING MARIE PAYING ANY OF US WHO HAVE BEEN ROBBED, CHEATED AND THROUGH THIS FRAUDULENT PROGRAM THAT HAS BEEN RAN THROUGH THE BLAINE CENTER. COMPASS HOUSING ALLIANCE IS FEELING TERRIBLE. WHAT I KNOW IS THE CONTRACT WITH HOUSING ALLIANCE IS THROUGH THE CITY, THAT MEANS THE CITY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT TAKES PLACE. BY CONDONING THIS THEFT AND FRAUDULENT ACTIVITY AND THE COVER-UP OF THIS ILLEGAL PROGRAM WHERE PEOPLE PROFITED FROM MY MONEY. I STILL HAVEN’T BEEN REPAID. NOT A THING. SO I’M CURIOUS TO KNOW IS, HOW COME ALL OF THE STUFF IS BEING SWEPT UNDER THE RUG? THROUGHOUT THIS BUDGET THING THERE WAS NOT A WORD MENTIONED ABOUT ANY OF US GETTING REPAID. YOU MUST CONDONE IT. THEFT AND FRAUD IS A VERY IMPORTANT THING TO A LOT OF US PEOPLE DOWN THERE BECAUSE WE’RE TRYING TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT, IN THIS EXAMPLE THAT IS BEING SET FORTH IS ONLY MAKING US LOSE FAITH IN WHAT WE HAVE BEFORE US. SO WHAT I’M CURIOUS TO KNOW IS, ARE WE GOING TO BE WORKING TOGETHER BECAUSE, AS I KNOW, TO BE TRUE, MISS MARY STEELE AND ADRIAN EASTER OF THE CITY ARE FAILING TERRIBLY AT KEEPING THIS QUIET AND HANDLED IN AN INEXPENSIVE WAY. WHAT NEEDS TO BE KNOWN IS THIS IS A POWERLESS SITUATION AND UNCONTROLLABLE TRAGEDY IS WHAT WE HAVE HERE. CHARGING PEOPLE, HOMELESS PEOPLE TO STAY IN THE SHELTERS. WHAT IS GOING TO BE DONE? THERE HASN’T BEEN NOTHING DONE. NO TALK, KNOW ANYTHING. I WENT UPSTAIRS TO THE MAYORS OFFICE FOUR TIMES AND LEFT MESSAGES. NOBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT THIS. I JUST THINK IT’LL GO AWAY. I’M VERY ADAMANT, RESILIENT AND SAVAGE AS TO WHERE I WILL GET THIS MONEY BACK. I WILL EXPOSE THE FRAUDULENT RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE CHURCH AND THE CITY — >>THANK YOU. >>ALL RIGHT. THIS BRINGS US TO THE CONCLUSION OF THE SESSION TODAY. WANT TO THANK ALL OF YOU AGAIN, COUNSEL CENTRAL STAFF THE HARDWARE, MY COLLEAGUES FOR YOUR DEEP INVOLVEMENT AND ENGAGEMENT IN ALL THIS. WE ARE GOING TO ADJOURN THIS MEETING TODAY. THE NEXT BUDGET COMMITTEE MEETING WILL BE JUST A WEEK FROM TODAY AT 9:30 AM WERE AT THAT TIME WE HOPE WE HAVE A COMPLETED PACKAGE. THANK YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH. THE MEETING IS ADJOURNED.
