5:33 pm
$18,000 to be divided between the awarded periodicals. the admin code requires the purchaser each year to invite bids for outreach advertising for the next fiscal year. the code specifies certain minimum requirement periodical must meet in the environment [speaker not understood]. the purchaser performs the valuation and reports the point totals to the board and makes recommendations. historically [speaker not understood] and made its recommendation to the board based on the response of bidder with the highest point total for the outreach communities. the admin code also states, there upon, the board of supervisors shall by resolution choose and designate periodicals as the outreach periodicalses of the city and county for the ensuing fiscal year. the board of supervisors in
5:34 pm
past years had decided to designate more than one periodical per outreach community in certain neighborhoods in san francisco and have split the contracts between most, if not all bidders who responded whether or not they were responsive to meeting all the requirements. oca sent bids to approximately 50 newspapers and received 11 responseses. of those 11 responses, six were responsive. the six newspapers are marina time, central city extra, west portal monthly, potrero view, small business exchange, and bay area reporter. we also received five bids from periodicals that were nonresponsive because they were either printed outside of san francisco or were not printed frequently enough.
5:35 pm
~ to meet the admin code requirements. those newspapers are the san francisco bayview, [speaker not understood] daily, world journal, and [speaker not understood], also the western he edition. in conclusion, the purchaser has drafted the resolutions for outreach periodicalses based on the past practice of recommending the bidders who are responsive with the highest point score. ~ the board of supervisors has the option to exercise its discretion to designate the recommended periodicals or if the board so chooses, to follow past practice to split the contract between most, if not all of the periodicals who submitted bids. last year [speaker not understood] were awarded to all who submitted bids. are there any questions?
5:36 pm
>> okay, thanks very much. >> a real quick question. >> sure, supervisor mar. >> are there any requirements from language access ordinance on how notice needs to be in languages by language minority populations? i'm just wondering because i know the small business exchange being designated for the latino or chinese or immigrant communities, i'm just wondering if they have the abilities to communicate in languageses other than english. so, i'm just asking what are the requirements under our language access ordinance or even just that we follow so that populations that might not be proficient in english would still have adequate notice from our city. >> well, i'm not familiar with the language ordinance. the admin code 2.8 does not
5:37 pm
require that the notices be published in any particular language. however, the outreach newspapers that represent the chinese community and hispanic community tend to be published in that language. the small business exchange is a little different. they represent minority small business owners. we do have non-responsive bid submissions from foreign language newspapers [speaker not understood], publishes in spanish. cinta daily and world journal publish in chinese. >> thank you. >> mr. rose, do we have a report from you on this item? >> no, there is no report, supervisor. >> okay, thanks. so, we'll open this up to public comment. anybody wish to comment on item number 1 hereof our special 10:30? seeing none public comment is closed. [gavel] >> so, supervisor mar, we have options here, either to accept
5:38 pm
all the responsive bids or do what we have in past practice, broaden it to all the nonresponsive bids as well. i would say that would be my preference, better to be inclusive. [speaker not understood]. that would be my recommendation. >> i would support that. >> okay. so, we have a motion, then, to amend this item to accept both -- to split this contract up between all the responsive bids and the nonresponsive bids submitted. >> so move. >> thank you. >> that work? we can take that amendment without objection. [gavel] >> and the underlying item as amended we can also take that without objection. [gavel] >> thank you very much. madam clerk, do we have any other business in front of us? >> no, mr. chair. >> thanks, everyone. we are adjourned. [gavel]

5:43 pm
have to make our own success we're doing our best in san francisco. since 2007 our san francisco government agencies have reduced water by 20 percent but still that's not enough i've called for on ailed 10 percent because if we are going to have some serious conversations with our businesses before i do that before i indicate to them what we need from them and they are the biggest water yourselves in our city we have to demonstrate our own commitment per diem and having the puc and our compliment department of working together to reduce an additional 10 percent is important so we have the moral foundation but the practicality to begin those
5:44 pm
discussions with our businesses. not only is water reduction important i think we're at a cutoff we have to signal behavior real life changes have to happen in order to manage this pending disaster so i'm about making sure our kids grouping just as they've done with education to emphasis the demands for education we want to get all our - our city represent the effort to conserve and collect as much ground water and recycled water where a appropriate to keep the freshwater this is what we have to do an aggressive agenda
5:45 pm
thanks to the governor's office for leading this effort those conversations have to go more than a regional approach we've got to have actions that we'll promise the public we're manage a crisis in the making not only do we lead by example and cut waste and water i imagine has much as possible we have to talk to the public about behavorial changes that's the most difficult thing but as a leader in this great city anita and i my wife has talked i talked about how to demonstrate at the home we can say to our kids we're leading by example and be the behavorial change this is a calling of us as government right now those are the challenges of our time this is a very serious thing we're not going to go through a simple
5:46 pm

5:49 pm

5:50 pm
infrastructure and transportation and education you name it really is a challenge for all of us and san francisco has done some phenomenal work in this area. some best practices we're going to talk about today and really is a model for an urban environmentalist to be able to demonstrate how taking a crisis like the drought and leveraging the best practices and implementing those in a large way i my say congratulations to the team here not only meeting the governors 20 percent but asking for an additional 10 percent it's a heavy lift but something we need to know this is a marathon not a sprint and in many ways the drought is while it's a crisis situation
5:51 pm
really to a degree is the new no more in california as we look at ourselves moving into the future years increasing in the population requirement we need to think about how we are sustaining this very, very critical resource n and san francisco again is one of the places we lead the way. i'm excited to an opportunity to meet with you and we'll talk about what we're doing at the state the governor's actions and the state agency to stay out in in front of this it, it's not a state action ensue a state and local and non-governmental private effort we need to stay out in flown front 0 of this. i thank you very much for hosting today and look forward to talking more as we move
5:52 pm
forward thank you. brown are we going to do a - introduction around - >> can i start with two topics and then we can move forward yeah. okay. with that, let us begin and, you know, as i mentioned sort of the objective of today is meeting and the challenges of managing this stating event as you all know, you know, this is the third year of 3 dry years. we've been hoping working with noah in the national weather serves next week we'll have an el nino pattern there's an
5:53 pm
interpretation of what that means we need to anticipate another dry year or at least plan for it and be prepared for another dry year. our challenge has been to remain out in front of this evolving event most disasters in california is the disaster occurs we'll respond collectively and we sort of mitigate the crisis and begin the recovery process that's not the case with the drought its at viewing every expanding challenge. its something that it's not going to go away we need to think about it in the context of long term sustainable solutions to change the way we in our society our culture in california deals with this problem and the legislation and the governor are looking at the
5:54 pm
variety of different solutions that we'll talk about today but there's some tough decisions to be made and part of it is occur contaminate of water delivers deliveries and even 345ur7bd restrictions in the state of california. to the desegregate that the drought is its everybody's everybody is combangd other places in the state are worse off our central valley agricultural has been hit hard farmers are having problems and we're having a trickle down effect of the economy in an industry that is one of the largest economic murnz in the state of california. so the long term economic
5:55 pm
impacts in that one sector will have a tremendous impact we're working hard to provide did balance of dealing with those problems while maintaining public health and safety so we incur that people don't go without drinking water for public health and safety standards there's many places in california that individuals are on wells and wells are running dry and their tied into a system he have a little bit flexibility but tied into a well your options are limited so we're really leveraging that and looking at ground water boycott to some larger term solutions a lot of this has been been in the governors document that outlines
5:56 pm
the direction and strategy that the governor in the state is moving forward in. we've had look at of precipitation this year but certainly not enough and one of the greatest threats as a result of drought has been that of wildfire our companies are so dry throughout the state it takes age a spark and with the wind behind it it moves rapidly because of the dryness of the fuel those fires get moved out rapidly we say this come to fruition plus the 80 different fires burning at the same time 18 were major we had to the evidence will then show everycy in the state of california to move up into northern california
5:57 pm
to support of the fire activity. the governor moved forward increasing the number of firefighting to put all the state agencies on notice to be responsive with the strategy that is get to the fires fast and keep them small. this year particularly we can't afford the fires getting too far out in front of us and the locally strikes we've been having a lot of lightning that result in, you know, multiple fires happening at the same time. so together fire safety and awareness of the potential for fire is very, very the governor did put in place a emergency proclamation for the
5:58 pm
state of california and two executive orders one that directs state agencies to, you know, respond with all the assets that the states has to deal with the emergency and establish the drought task force at the governors level and cleared the way through recollection to the state water control board we'll learn about the kind of clearance that were streamlining the red tape and the streamlining of the situation to get the water where it needs to go and the paramount priority. we've had an active a geement with our community. much kudos to all the local authorities throughout california working very closely in calculation with the state and conversely with our federal partner early on they came
5:59 pm
together and the white house has been on this president obama has been out here himself so see the impact of the event and they've been forthcoming with resources they e very rapidly i want to appreciate their effort our our emergency operation centers the state and regions we're holding weekly calls with our operation areas to be able to get that input that feeding that information of what's happening on the ground to act very rapidly to and i judge trial those become greater a challenges and particularly the ones running out of water they're a heavy loss. the governor was working with the legislation schematic and moving forward with emergency
6:00 pm
drought legislation it includes over $21 million in rental and housing assistance through the housing development. much of that is already been looked to individuals and families that have been disbecause of the drought and $15 million of drinking water fund to the control board and $25 million in emergency food avoidance it's been put out to various counties throughout the state were water sxheefrm is our number one concern and fire mitigation we're continuing to move forward as the month going on and hoping that this will bring differences. that's an overview i want to i'm going to turn it over to >> we're going to take a quick 2
