[agenda item read] >> chair fewer: thank you very
8:16 am
much. we have the director of real estate here. >> good morning chair fewer, supervisor walton, supervisor mandelman. i'm the director of real estate. i have with me jamie from the office of public finance who will speak to you as part of this presentation going to the details of the c.o.p. financing. i'm seeking your recommendation for the two resolutions before you. it would authorize the purchase of real property located at 814 through 820 bryant street and 476th street. gained lots are approximately 24,000 square feet with a single use mcdonald's building consisting approximately 2000 square feet. do we have the slides? thank you.
8:17 am
the purchase price is $11,520,000 or $480 per square foot. with transaction cost and site preparation, the acquisition cost is not to exceed $12 million. in january 2016 the board of supervisors gave oral direction to the real estate division to negotiate the acquisition of some of the parcels on this block which is adjacent to the h.o.j. and anticipation of a future rebuilding of the hall of justice. you can see in this slide here, the acquisition that is currently before you is outlined in red. in june 2016, the board of supervisors approved the acquisition of 456 street of
8:18 am
$2.4 million. with the acquisition of this current site combined with the prior acquisition we would now have a development site. long-term use of the site is replacement of administrative building to consolidate criminal justice functions currently decamped from the hall of justice in lease space or those that have been relocated to the east wing of the hall of justice. i would like to thank mayor breed, along with the cot sponsors, supervisor haney and supervisor peskin and support in this legislation. i like to thank the b.l.a. for their hard work and recommendation. with the review appraisal and approval of the c.o.p.s that the b.l.a. will support this tumitem item. with chapter 23 there was an
8:19 am
appraisal and review appraisal and both confirmed that the purchase prices at or below market value. like to turn it over to jamie who will walk you through the c.o.p.s. >> thank you. good morning supervisors. as mentioned in addition to authorization to acquire the bryant street and sixth street properties. it authorizes the execution and certificates of participation and commercial paper notes to finance the cost of the acquisition as well as costs demolition and site preparation work. also before you today item 5 to you a compan-- appropriating ths the certificates and commercial paper note in order to finance the acquisition and site work as just described by the director of real estate. the certificates will finance
8:20 am
the 11.5 million in acquisition costs and approximately 19,000 in closing fees. director of real estate estimates $642,000 will be used for demolition. the total approximate budget is $12 million which will makes up the entire not to exceed project budget. the certificates and commercial paper notes are expected to be executed and delivered in the not to exceed $16 million which is sufficient to fully pay the costs the $12 million project but also include additional $3.5 million for delivery costs associateassociated with the isf the certificates and commercial paper notes. the not to exceed authorization and appropriation amount also includes 465 thousand dollars contingency for such issuance costs to allow for market fluctuations in the market conditions during the final sale
8:21 am
of the certificates. the current plan of finance using the city's commercial paper program which was established in 2010, to finance the initial project cost. the office of public finance uses commercial paper as an interim financing tool which will be paid for by the issuance of the certificates of participation. in order to use commercial paper as an interim financing tool, the board of supervisors must first authorize a long-term repayment source. based on an approximate 5% of all interest costs on a $16 million certificate of participation, office of public finance estimates maximum annual debt service will be approximately $1.23 million per year for a term of 20 years. the incremental debt service associated with the certificates are assumed in recently adopted 10-year capital plan and complies with the city's policy of limiting the general fund debt service payments at or
8:22 am
below 3.25% of the general fundiefunddiscretionary revenue. in order it use the city's commercial paper program, the office of public finance will return to board of supervisors prior to the final sale of the certificates of participation to seek the board's approval of all related financing documents. including lease agreements, trust agreements, notices of sale, continuing disclosure certificates and preliminary official statement which closes the city financial information to investors. at that time, our office will present on the current interest rate market anticipate the structure and discussed proposed city-owned asset. i'm available to answer any questions related to the
8:23 am
financing. >> chair fewer: any comments or questions? supervisor walton. >> supervisor walton: quick question. if this approve, will we be able to purchase by the may time line? >> thank you supervisor. the answer is yes. we have negotiated with the sellers to give us little bit of flexibility. we're prepared to deposit $1 million into escrow in may. that along with the approval of the board of supervisors will buy us some time to finalize the transaction. if we need to go past may date, we have flexibility. >> chair fewer: i wanted to know whether or not -- i see on this map that we are purchasing the surrounding area of current hall of justice. i'm sorry, there's no page number on here.
8:24 am
>> i think that's page 3. >> chair fewer: that's correct. we're hoping to consolidate the functions of the hall of justice and the personnel into one site together that is the plan. this is the acquisition part of that. is that correct? >> thank-- that's correct. this acquisition gives us more flexibility than we had before. instead of having to relocate and rebuild on the existing hall of justice site, we're growing the pie little bit. that give us swing space to build a larger and better hall of justice facility. it give us flexibility to shuffle personnel around during the construction period. >> chair fewer: i see there are other sites also that round out this whole block. are those other parcels that are
8:25 am
adjacent to what you are requesting funding for? are any of those other lots available? >> can we pull up the slide? yes as i stated previously, outlined in green is a site currently owned by the city outlined-ioutlined in red is tht acquisition. if you look to the right of the red, you see two parcels. one is the credit union and the other is an s.r.o. those are not site sites that ae contemplated part of the h.o.j. rebuild. you will see one parcel that is represented by a long building that is just above the green box. that is a site that we have had often with discussions with the property owner.
8:26 am
if we can resolve our negotiations successfully, we might acquire that site. however, with this acquisition, acquiring that last site is not required. we have a developable site. we can move forward with this site with or without that last building. >> chair fewer: i'm thinking it might be prudent to see how much property we can actually buy in that area. if it's for sale. i get there's an s.r.o. there. i believe it's not the sheriff's credit union but it's the police credit union there. i'm a member there. >> i mess smoke. >> chair fewer: that's fine. s.r.o. site is not for sale either? >> to acquire the s.r.o. who require significant amount of relocation expenses because of
8:27 am
the residents there. also the politics of displacing low income units made that site less desirable. >> chair fewer: that parcel on the side adjacent to the green what it used for? >> we have been in communications with the owner. i don't want to go into details on public television. they have been reluctant in the past, we hope that renewed efforts will bear fruit. >> chair fewer: all the properties being actually in central soma and western soma is the last place we were able to purchase land.
8:28 am
>> i concur. >> chair fewer: any comments or questions? can we hear from the b.l.a. please? >> yes, supervisors. item number 5 actually approves the acquisition of the two parcels adjacent to the hall of justice. item 4 approves appropriations of the funds. if you look at page 18 table 2, it shows the acquisition cost up to $12 million and the total cost for the certificates of participation up to $16 million. she explained the process. she explained the board would need to approve subsequent legislation associated with selling the certificates of participation. the city does have a debt policy. there's a limit of 3.25% of discretionary general fund revenue for outstanding debt.
8:29 am
that does not include general obligation bond debt. it would be within that policy. when we wrote the report, we have not received the appraisal review. we did receive the appraisal review last night. it does confirm the purchase praise of this property at $11.5 million. i believe the board approved the capital plan yesterday. we recommend approval. >> chair fewer: thank you very much any members of the public like to comment on item 4 or 5? good morning mr. wright. >> i don't have any objections, i want to highlight that this is the person that you want to talk to as far as property owned about the city in order to build affordable housing pertaining to my demonstrations where apartment buildings is being built for $56 million which is
8:30 am
the lowest rate out of all buildings of the developers that's building businesses in san francisco. supervisor walton and we did a comparison and contrast on the projects that he's working on and we came up with a total of $66 million saving by using the idea of a developer on a project that's being built in mountain view and same type of result took place when we looked at another apartment building complex that was being built in san mateo. i would like to point that out, any land available you can consult with the director here to take care of the homeless problem and housing people in low income and very low income brackets. >> chair fewer: thank you very much. any other public comment. public comment is now closed.
8:31 am
i like to make a motion to prove items 4 and 5 to the board with a positive recommendation. can we take that without objection? yes, thank you very much. please call item 6. [agenda item read] >> chair fewer: we have pat mulligan. director of office of labor centre enforcement. >> thank you supervisor fewer mandelman and walton. this is the annual submittal before the board of supervisors for approval of prevailing page provisions. this includes the approximately 63 classifications identified with about 200
8:32 am
subclassifications. it includes the 10 classifications that are unique to the city and county of san francisco. some changes in this year's submittal you may have noticed, it's thinner. we consolidated some of the information to make it more consistent with both the california department of industrial relations and united states department of labor. also with that, we were able to in the same manner that the state and fed does it, we're able -- we were able to post rates that may come available in the future. say if they come online next year or year after, based on what collective bargaining agreements we have available to us. >> chair fewer: thank you mr. mulligan. colleagues no questions? could we have a b.l.a. report please? >> this is the annual approval by the board of supervisors of the prevailing wage rates. the board has discretion to
8:33 am
approve these rates or other rates they may be necessary. page 22 of our report shows the classifications and contract services that would be covered by the prevailing wage rate as we always say in our report. the actual fiscal impact is a unknown because we don't know the impact any of these rate increases would have on specific contracts. they only have impact on the contracts come up to bid. attempt attachment 2 gives genel summary how the wage and benefits will be revised under the prevailing wage rates. we consider approval to be policy matter for the board. >> chair fewer: thank you very much. any comments? any public comment. any members like to speak on this item? hello mr. wright. >> this flows with my previous demonstration pertaining to the
8:34 am
exempt employees who work for the city and county of san francisco from 5 up to 25 years that's doing the same type of work as the coworkers but yet know don't get medical benefits, annuity and retirement plan. as far as this prevailing wages is concerned, it's the same type of situation. you doing the same type of work as other people that's employed by the city but not making the same amount of money. you want to point out that, that's a violation of federal law pertaining to employment discrimination law title 7 of the united states of america's code service. the u.s. attorney general's and the lawyers edition. that's federal law pertaining to the 2000e-series, unequal pay act violation. will be in violation of constitutional law too pertaining to the 14th amendment pertaining to due
8:35 am
process and equal protection under the law. that's not equal protection by having a set of employees do the same work and have one set get paid more money than the other set when they doing same type of work and same amount of hours per week. it flows with my early demonstrations and derivative. i move to have you incorporate it and have prevailing wages granted. >> chair fewer: thank you very much mr. wright. mr. mark gleeson, you like to give public comment? >> good morning supervisors. mark gleason with teamsters joint coun counsel 7. great appreciation for everybody who worked on this projects.
8:36 am
we want to extend our appreciation, thank you so much. >> chair fewer: thank you very much mr. gleason. mr. mulligan, i have one question for you. pertaining to 21c, is this legislatiowill apply to parking attendants? >> it will apply to parking attendants and workers on parking structures both in the city and county of san francisco proper and s.f.o. >> chair fewer: thank you very much. seeing no comments or questions. i move this with a positive -- oh. public comment is closed. i like to move to the board with a positive recommendation. thaethank you very much. do we have any other items

8:39 am
san francisco department of environment is a place where climate hits the street. we know that we don't have all the answers. we need to support our local champions, our local community to find creative solutions and innovations that help us get to zero waste. >> zero waste is sending nothing to landfill or incineration, using reuse and recovery and prevention as ways to achieve zero waste. the grant program is a grant program specifically for nonprofits in san francisco to divert material from landfill. it's important to find the san francisco produce market because there's a lot of edible food that can be diverted and they
8:40 am
need positions to capture that food and focus on food recovery. >> san francisco produce market is a resource that connects farmers and their produce with businesses in the bay area. i think it's a basic human right to have access to healthy foods, and all of this food here is available. it's a matter of creating the infrastructure, creating jobs, and the system whereby none of this goes to waste. since the beginning of our program in july 2016 to date, we've donated over 1 million pounds of produce to our community partners, and that's resulted in over 900,000 meals to people in our community, which we're very proud of. >> carolyn at the san francisco produce market texts with old
8:41 am
produce that's available. the produce is always excellent. we get things like broccoli, brussels sprouts, bell peppers. everything that we use is nice and fresh, so when our clients get it, they really enjoy it, and it's important to me to feel good about what i do, and working in programs such as this really provides that for me. it's helping people. that's what it's really about, and i really enjoy that. >> the work at the produce market for me representing the intersection between environment and community, and when we are working at that intersection, when we are using our resources and our passion and our energy to heal the planet and feed the people, nothing gets better t n
