NO OBJECTION TO INTRODUCTION REFERRAL CALENDAR IS ADOPTED. LET ME SAY A FEW COMMENTS ABOUT TODAY’S AGENDA BECAUSE WE ARE PREPARING OUR BUDGET AND WILL START HEARING THIS WEEK THE COMMITTEES HAVE WRAPPED UP A LOT OF LEGISLATION WE HAVE A SERIES OF PIECES OF LEGISLATION WITH MULTIPLE AMENDMENTS AND THIS IS GOING TO BE PRETTY CHALLENGING TO GET THROUGH. WE WILL GET THROUGH IT BUT IT’S GOING TO BE SOME WHAT CHALLENGING BECAUSE WE HAVE AMENDMENTS FLYING AROUND THE LAST MINUTE AS SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO DO. I ALSO AS I DESCRIBED TO COUNSEL WE’LL HAVE TO LEAVE SOME WHAT EARLY FOR AN OBLIGATION AND THE COUNCIL MEMBER MAY CHAIR THE MEETING ON THE BACK END OF IT. AND SO BECAUSE OF THAT I’M GOING TO MAKE A FEW ADJUSTMENTS ON THE AGENDA TO IN PARTICULAR ON SOME OF THOSE THAT REQUIRE AMENDMENTS BECAUSE IN ALL DO RESPECT IT MIGHT BE CHALLENGING FOR HIM NOT HAVING DONE THIS TO SOME EXTENT AND THE SCRIPT IS A LITTLE REPLIABLE SOMETIMES AND DIFFICULT TO FOLLOW SO HAVING SAID THAT I’M GOING TO MAKE A FEW AMENDMENTS TO THE AGENDA. THE FIRST ONE IS AS I DESCRIBED THIS MORNING I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE THE ENTIRE REPORT OF THE GOVERNOR TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE ITEMS FIVE, SIX AND SEVEN AND ITEM 21 WHICH IS THE OIL HEAT LEGISLATION I’D LIKE TO MOVE THAT AFTER AGENDA ITEM 1 SO THAT I CAN SHARE THOSE ITEMS.

YOU HAVE THE FLOOR. >>THANK YO VERY MUCH. ALL RIGHT ALL OF THE NANNY’S IN THE HOUSE. SO THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR INCREDIBLE WORK OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS AS WE’VE BEEN WORKING TO LIFT UP THE VOICE OF NANNIES, CARETAKERS, HOUSE KEEPERS AND DOMESTIC WORKERS.

[ CHEERING ] AND TODAY BUILDS ON THAT MOMENTUM THAT WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT THE SEATTLE NANNY DAY PROCLAMATION. THANKS TO THE MAYOR AND KELSEY NYELAND FOR HER OFFICE IN CLABTING ON THIS EFFORT WITH COMMUNITY PARTNERS AND OUR OFFICE. TODAY’S PROCLAMATION IS TIMELY FOR MANY REASONS NOT TO MENTION THE FACT AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL WE HAVE THE NATIONAL DOMESTIC WORKERS BILL OF RIGHTS AND OUR VERY OWN CONGRESS WOMAN IS CONTINUING TO CHAMPION AND MANY FOLKS IN THE AUDIENCE HAVE BEEN WORKING TO ELEVATE THAT AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL. WE ALSO KNOW THAT THIS IS CONTINUING ON THE WIN OF LAST YEAR’S DOMESTIC WORKERS BILL OF RIGHTS WHICH WAS CHAMPIONED BY NANNIES HERE IN SEATTLE. AND MOSTLY WOMEN AND PEOPLE OF COLOR WHO BROUGHT THIS ISSUE FORWARD TO US THROUGH COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS AND TO REALLY SAT AT THE TABLE AND HELP US DRAFT THE POLICY. WE’RE ALL SO EXCITED TO BRING THIS PROCLAMATION FORWARD TODAY BECAUSE THIS IS A GLOBAL EFFORT ACROSS OUR COUNTRY AND ACROSS THE GLOBE. PEOPLE ARE CALLING FOR SEPTEMBER 22 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 28 TO BE RECOGNIZED AS NATIONAL NANNY RECOGNITION WEEK. WE ARE HONORED TO BE PART OF THAT EFFORT WITH THE CITIES ACROSS THE UNITED STATES, EUROPE AND AUSTRALIA FOR EXAMPLE. AND THIRD, WE JUST HEARD A BUDGET BRIEFING THAT NOW IS THE TIME TO MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE INVESTING AND THRIVING ECONOMIES AND IT IS NANNIES WHO MAKE THE CITY RUN. NANNIES WHO HELP TO MAKE SURE OTHERS CAN GO TO WORK. NANNIES WHO ESPECIALLY HELP WOMEN COME AND REJOIN THE WORK PLACE AND MAKE SURE THAT CHILDREN HAVE THE CARE AND SUPPORT THEY NEED TO GROW UP TO BE SMART AND HEALTHY AND TO BE FIERCE AND INDEPENDENCE LIKE MANY OF OUR NANNIES ARE. I’M REALLY EXCITED TO BE PRESENTING THIS PROCLAMATION AND I’D LIKE TO READ A FEW WORDS MR. PRESIDENT. >>PLEASE DO. >>WHEREAS NANNIES PLAY CRITICAL ROLES IN OUR LOCAL ECONOMY TO ENSURE THE HEALTH AND PROSPERITY OF FAMILIES AND WHEREAS THE WORK OF NANNIES MAKES OTHER WORK POSSIBLE AND WHEREAS DESPITE THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF DOMESTIC WORKERS IN THE HOUSEHOLD AND THE OVERALL ECONOMY DOMESTIC WORK IS STILL NOT RECOGNIZED AS PROTECTED WORK BY THE STATE OR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WHICH WE WILL CHANGE. AND WHEREAS IN THE UNITED STATES NANNIES HAVE BEEN EXEMPTED FROM MOST LAWS GOVERNING INSURANCE, COLLECTIVE BARGAINING, PROTECTIVES FROM HARASSMENT AND OTHER LABOR STANDARDS AND WE ARE CHANGING THAT. WE HAVE INCLUDED IN THE NATIONAL AND OUR CITIES DOMESTIC WORKER BILL OF RIGHTS A BARGAINING TABLE TO MAKE SURE THAT NANNIES AND THEIR HIRING ENTITIES HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SIT AT A TABLE AND TO TALK ABOUT FUTURE LABOR PROTECTIONS BEYOND THE MINIMUM WAGE PROTECTION FROM RETALIATION THAT WE’VE INCLUDED IN LAST YEAR’S BILL. AND WE’RE ALSO CONTINUING TO RECOGNIZE AND HONOR THEIR WORKS WITH THIS PROCLAMATION TODAY. MR.

WE ALSO–WE’RE ALSO ORGANIZING TO SUPPORT THE NATIONAL DOMESTIC WORKERS BILL OF RIGHTS PRESENTED BY CONGRESS WOMAN CAMILLA AND SENATOR CAMILLA HARRIS. IT WILL INCREASE STANDARDS FOR THE DOMESTIC WORKERS OF THE COUNTRY THAT HAVE BEEN ALREADY EXCLUDED FROM RIGHTS AND PROTECTIONS FOR SO MANY YEARS. OF COURSE WE’RE ALL PROUD TO LEAD THE WAY HERE IN SEATTLE BUT WE WILL NEVER HAVE COME HERE WITHOUT THE UNITY AND THE EFFORT AND OUR COMMUNITY WE ASK YOU TO JOIN US TODAY TO FIGHT FOR THE RIGHTS OF DOMESTIC WORKERS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. THANKS AGAIN FOR MAKING SEATTLE’S NANNY DAY TODAY AND FOR RECOGNIZING THAT WORK AND CONTRIBUTION OF THOUSANDS OF NANNIES IN THE CITY. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE]. >>THANK YOU ALL. THANK YOU FOR SUCH A GREAT PROCLAMATION. NEXT WE WILL HAVE COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD AND THIS IS A GOOD SEGWAY INTO HER PROCLAMATION RELATED TO DIAPER NEEDS AWARENESS WEEK. COUNCIL MEMBER? >>FANTASTIC, THANK YOU. IT’S AN HONOR TO SPONSOR AND PRESENT A PROCLAMATION DECLARING THIS WEEK DIAPER NEED AWARENESS WEEK WITH COUNCIL MEMBERS GONZALEZ. THIS PROCLAMATION IS SPONSORED ON BEHALF OF WEST SIDE BABY WHO DISTRIBUTES DIAPERS TO FAMILIES IN NEED IN WESTERN WASHINGTON AND I’D LIKE TO ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL CARETAKERS AND PARENTS OF BABIES WORKING IN THE LEGISLATIVE DEPARTMENT AND MORE BABIES ALONG THE WAY. DIAPER NEED IS RECOGNIZED ACROSS THE COUNTRY. AS AN INITIATIVE OF THE NATIONAL DIAPER BANK NETWORK AND THE CITY OF SEATTLE WORKED TO DECREASE FAURELS FOR INFANTS TODDLERS AND RECOGNIZING THE DEVELOPMENTAL AND HEALTH OUTCOMES THAT COME AT THIS IMPORTANT AGE ESPECIALLY FOR FAMILIES LIVING ON LOW INCOME AND FAMILIES OF COLOR. THIS WEEK, WEST SIDE BABY IS ORGANIZING DIAPER DRIVES ACROSS THE CITY AND A BOFN WILL BE LEFT IN RECEPTION FOR PEOPLE TO DONATE AT CITY HALL ON TUESDAY. AND IF I COULD READ FROM THE PROCLAMATION. >>PLEASE. THE RULES ARE SUSPENDED. COUNCIL MEMBER HERBOLD. >>THANK YO SO MUCH. ONE IN THREE FAMILIES DOES NOT HAVE A SUFFICIENT SUPPLY OF CLEAN DIAPERS FOR THEIR CHILDREN AND CHILDREN GO THROUGH SIX TO TWELVE DIAPERS A DAY AND A CARETAKER OR PARENT MAY HAVE TO BUY DIAPERS FOR THE FIRST TWO TO THREE YEARS OF THEIR CHILD’S LISKS. THE COUNCIL ON ECONOMIC ADVISORS HAVING A SUFFICIENT SUPPLY OF DIAPERS AS A BURDEN OF ONE-THIRD OF LOW INCOME FAMILIES AND CAN ACCOUNT FOR 14 MRKS OF A LOW INCOME FAMILY’S INCOME. AN ADEQUATE SUPPLY OF DIAPERS CAN COST BETWEEN $70 AND $100 A MONTH AND IN ORDER TO AFFORD THIS 48% OF FAMILIES DELAY CHANGING A DIAPER, PUTTING INFANTS AND TODDLERS IN DISCOMFORT, PAIN AND AT RISK OF SKIN INFECTIONS. AND A SUPPLY OF DIAPERS IS GENERALLY AN ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENT FOR INFANTS AND TODDLER TO PARTICIPATE IN CHILD CARE PROGRAMS AND QUALITY EARLY EDUCATION PROGRAM AILS AND THROUGH THE LEADERSHIP OF OTHER DEPARTMENTS THE CITY STRIVES TO ADDRESS HEALTH AND DEVELOPMENTAL INEQUALITIES FOR COMMUNITIES OF COLOR AND LOW INCOME COMMUNITIES BY INVESTING CHILD CARE IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION PROGRAMS AND WHEREAS THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS TO HELP FAMILIES WITH DIAPERS AND TO THE GOAL OF COLLECTIVELY ALLEVIATING DIAPER NEED THE CITY OF SEATTLE ENCOURAGING CITIZENS TO DONATE GENEROUSLY TO DIAPER BANKS, DIAPER DRIVES AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT DISTRIBUTE DIAPERS TO FAMILIES IN NEED AND SEATTLE IS PROUD TO BE HOME OF WEST SIDE BABY AND OTHER COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS THAT RECOGNIZE THE IMPORTANCE OF INCREASING THE AVAILABILITY AND ACCESS TO DIAPERS. NOW THEREFORE THE SEATTLE CITY COUNCIL DO HEREBY PROCLAIM THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 23 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 29, 2019 AS DIAPER NEED AWARENESS WEEK. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE] . >>RULES ARE SUSPENDED. WE’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM ANYONE IF THEY WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT.>>HELLO. MY NAME IS SARAH CODY ROTED AND IT’S AN HONOR TO BE HERE TODAY TO CELEBRATE DIAPER AWARENESS WEEK. I WANT TO THANK THE COUNCIL MEMBERS FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE AND RECOGNIZING DIAPER NEEDS IN THE CITY OF SEATTLE. IT MAY COME AS A SHOCK THAT 16% OF FAMILIES IN THE CITY OF SEATTLE STRUGGLE TO AFFORD ENOUGH DIAPERS FOR THEIR FAMILIES FOR THEIR CHILDREN. IN SOME COMMUNITIES WITHIN THE CITY OF SEATTLE THAT NUMBER IS AS HIGH AS 75%. THREE QUARTERS OF FAMILIES. IN COMMUNITIES OF COLOR IN SEATTLE CANNOT AFFORD ENOUGH CLEAN DIAPERS TO KEEP THEIR CHILDREN SAFE AND WARM AND DRY. AS WAS MENTIONED DIOP YERDZ ARE A CRITICAL BASIC NEED DURING A CHILD OUGHTS EARLY DEVELOPMENT. NOT HAVING ENOUGH CLEAN DIAPERS CAN IMPACT A CHILD’S DEVELOPMENT BUT IT CAN ALSO IMPACT THEIR PARENTS ABILITY TO GO TO WORK. IT CAN WE KNOW FROM RECENT STUDIES MAKE IT HARD FOR UP TO THREE IN FIVE PARENTS TO GO TO WORK AND HAVE TO MISS WORK WITHIN A MONTH BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH CLEAN DIAPERS TO LEAVE AT DAYCARE. WE KNOW THAT THE RIPPLE EFFECTS OF DIAPER NEED STRETCH FAR BEYOND A SINGLE CHILD, A PARENT. IT GOES TO OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY’S HEALTH AND ECONOMIC WELL BEING. AND SO IT IS AN HONOR TO BE HERE AND TO BE ABLE TO TALK ABOUT AND BRING AWARENESS TO DIAPER NEED IN OUR CITY AND TO BE ABLE TO IMAGINE TOGETHER THE RIPPLE EFFECTS OF ENDING DIAPER NEED IN OUR CITY. WEST SIDE BABY BELIEVES THAT THAT IS POSSIBLE AND WE ARE SO HONORED TO HAVE THE PARTNERSHIP OF THE CITY OF SEATTLE TO BE RAISING AWARENESS OF THIS CRITICAL ISSUE. WE LOOK FORWARD TO CONTINUING TO WORK TOGETHER. THANK YOU FOR HAVING US. >>THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE] JERK NEXT PROCLAMATION PRESENTING RELATETION TO STANDING WITH CASHMERE.

IT’S BUILT A POLITICAL CAREER ON RACISM, RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION AND SCAPEGOATING AND THE CLAUSES OF THE PROCLAMATION WILL GO MORE INTO IT BUT I JUST WARRANTED TO SAY VERY QUICKLY THE TIMING OF THIS PROCLAMATION LAST MONTH THE GOVERNMENT ENDED ANY INDEPENDENCE SENDING IN THOUSANDS OF TROOPS IN AN OCCUPATION CLOSING COMMUNICATIONS IN AND OUT OF THE REGION AND ARRESTING ELECTED POLITICAL LEADERS. MANY ACTIVISTS AND ORGANIZATIONS IN THE SEATTLE REGION SOME OF WHOSE REPRESENTATIVES ARE HERE WITH US TODAY AND I THANK THEM FOR IT HAVE OPPOSED THE OCCUPATION OF CASHMERE AND HAVE GATES FOUNDATION GIVING THIS AWARD IN THIS CONTEXT AND I WANT TO SAY ON A PERSONAL NOTE HAVING GROWN UP AND HAVING SEEN FIRST HANDSOME OF THE DESTRUCTION AND VIOLENCE AND ATROSTS THAT ARE BEING CARRIED OUT BY THE CAPITALIST AND PURIST GOVERNMENT LIKE ANYWHERE ELSE. INDIA IS NOT UNIQUE. LET’S NOT MAKE ORIENTALIST ARGUMENTS ABOUT THIS BUT THE FACT IS THAT INJUSTICE EVERYWHERE IS AN OBSTACLE TO JUSTICE EVERYWHERE AND THAT IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE ARE ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS IN THE SEATTLE REGION SPEAKING OUT TOGETHER. A PROCLAMATION FROM THE SEATTLE CITY COUNCIL STANDS WITH WHEREAS THE SEATTLE CITY COUNCIL PROPOSED DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS FOR ALL PEOPLE AND OPPOSES RELIGIOUS AND DISCRIMINATION AND WHEREAS THE FAR RIGHT PARTY GOVERNMENT OF INDIA’S PRIME MINISTER HAS BEEN CRITICIZED FOR PROMOTING VIOLENCE AGAINST RELIGIOUS MINORITIES, SILENCING DECENT AND ACTIONS WHICH ARE PRIME MINISTER THE NICKNAME THE BUTCHER A REFERENCE TO THE 2002 MASSACRE WHEN HE WAS CHIEF MINISTER OF THE STATE IN WHICH MORE THAN 1,000 PEOPLE WERE KILLED IN ANTI MUSLIM VIOLENCE AND MANY MUSLIM WOMEN WERE TARGETED FOR RAPE AND OTHER FORMS OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE AND WHEREAS DESCRIMS AND VIOLENCE AGAINST LOWER CAST COMMUNITIES PARTICULARLY HAS EXPASES BAITED UNDER PRIME MINISTER’S GOVERNMENT SINCE THEY TOOK POWER IN 2015 AND WHEREAS ON AUGUST 5, 2019 THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT ARTICLE 370 OF THE INDIAN CONSTITUTION WHICH I GUARANTY CASHMERE STATUS AS A SEMI AUTONOMOUS DATE AND EXPANDED MILITARY OCCUPATION OF THE STATE WITH THOUSANDS OF TROOPS AND WHEREAS CASHMERE HAS BEEN PLACED UNDER COMMUNICATIONS LOCK DOWN AND POLITICAL LEADERS HAVE BEEN DETAINED AND WHEREAS IN AUGUST INDIA PUBLISHED AN UPDATED NATIONAL REGISTER OF CITIZENS REQUIRING NEARLY 2 MILLION PEOPLE MOSTLY MUSLIM TO PROVE THEIR INDIAN CITIZENSHIP OR FACE DETENTION AT MASS DETENTION CAMPS. THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT PLANS TO BUILD AND DEPORT AND WHEREAS THE GATES FOUNDATION BASED IN SEATTLE ANNOUNCED PLANS TO PRESENT THE PRIME MINISTER AN AWARD FOR THE CLEAN INDIA MISSION ON TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 2019. AND WHEREAS STAND WITH CASHMERE API SEATTLE FOR BLACK LIVES THE COUNSEL ON AMERICAN ISLAMIC RELATIONS, THE PAKISTAN ASSOCIATION OF GREATER SEATTLE SEEKS FOR JUSTICE AND VOICES FOR FREEDOM HAVE OPPOSED HIM RECEIVING THIS AWARD AND WHEREAS THE CITY COUNCIL BELIEVES THE AWARD IS INCONSISTENT WITH SEATTLE’S STATS AS AN INCLUSIVE OPEN CITY THAT IS WELCOME TO INDIAN COMMUNITIES AND ALL RELIGIONS. NOW THEREFORE THE SEATTLE CITY COUNCIL PROCLAIMS TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 2019 STAND WITH CASHMERE DAY. [APPLAUSE] . >>THE RULES ARE STILL SUSPENDED. WE’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM ANY GUESTS RECEIVING THIS PROCLAMATION. THANK YOU COUNCIL MEMBER. [APPLAUSE] . >>GOOD AFTERNOON. >>HI. >>YOU’LL HAVE TO EXCUSE MY VERY DAMAGED VOCAL CORDES. HOURS OF PROTESTING WILL DO THAT TO YOU. THE AWARD FROM THE BILL AND LINDA GATES FOUNDATION IS COMPLETELYCOUNTER INTUITIVE. WHILE WE CONTINUE TO READ, WATCH AND LISTEN TO THE HORRORS THAT HAVE BEEN OCCURRING IN CASHMERE FOR THE PAST 51 DAYS THE BILL AND PLAINEDDA GATES FOUNDATION DECISION TO GIVE THE FASCIST TY RANT MAKES LESS AND LESS SENSE. AS WE ALL KNOW, HE’S RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RECENT DEPLOYMENT OF TENS OF THOUSANDS OF INDIAN TROOPS INTO CASHMERE. THE SIEGE OF 8 MILLION DETAINMENT OF OVER 40,000 YOUNG MEN AND BOYS. HOW CAN AN ORGANIZATION LED BY HUMANITARIANS GIVE AN AWARD TO SUCH A MAN? AS OUR ORGANIZATION STANDS WITH CASHMERE SEATTLE RECEIVES THIS PROCLAMATION FROM THE SEATTLE CITY COUNCIL WE CONTINUE TO PUSH THE GATES FOUNDATION TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION AND RESINNED THE AWARD THEY WILL GIVE. WE THANK COUNCIL WOMAN AND THE SEATTLE CITY COUNCIL FOR THEIR EFFORTS AND SUPPORT. OUR CHAPTER OF STAND WITH CASHMERE IS ECSTATIC TO SEE THIS DAY ANNOUNCED AS STAND WITH CASHMERE DAY.

IN THIS WE DEMAND THE GEATS FOUNDATION NOT HONOR. UNDER HIS ADMINISTRATION THE INDIAN GOVERNMENT STANDS AGAINST THE CORE BELIEF THAT ALL LIVES HAVE EQUAL VALUE. THE WORK OVER SHADOWED AND UNDER MINED BY INJUSTICE AND VIOENCE AGAINST COMMUNITIES. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK COUNCIL MEMBER AND THE REST OF THE COUNCIL FOR MAKING THIS HAPPEN. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. IN OUR LAST PROCLAMATION PRESENTED BY COUNCIL MEMBER PAYCHECK O FOR PROCLAMATIONS SUPPORTING SANDA APACHE BALANCED.

I’M HERE TO TESTIFY ABOUT THE HEATING OIL ORDINANCE WHICH WE ARE IN FAVOR OF. AS GRETTA HAS SAID OUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE. THE CLIMATE CRISIS IS AN EMERGENCY AND IN ORDER TO PUT IT OUT WE NEED TO STOP BURNING FOSSIL FUELS. THIS ORDINANCE IS A NECESSARY AND APPROPRIATE STEP IN THAT DIRECTION. IT NOT ONLY REDUCES CARBON EMISSIONS, IT DOES SO IN A WAY THAT HELPS OUR FINANCIAL VULNERABLE CITIZENS THOSE WITH THE LOWEST INCOMES. FOR THE SAKE OF FUTURE CIVILIZATION SEATTLE’S TRANSITION OFF OF FOSSIL FUELS IS NOT OPTIONAL. WE ARE MINDFUL OF THE FACT THAT TRANSITION PUTS THE JOBS OF PEOPLE IN THE FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY AT RISK AND WE TAKE THAT SERIOUSLY AND WE ARE PLEASED THAT THIS ORDINANCE OFFERS JOB RETRAINING SUPPORT FOR OIL SERVICE EMPLOYEES. WE URGE YOU TO PASS THE ORDINANCE AS WRITTEN WITH THE FASTEST POSSIBLE TIMELINE. DO NOT WATER IT DOWN. WE HAVE NO TIME TO WASTE. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. >>GOOD AFTERNOON, COUPE SILL MEMBERS.

IN CLOSING, THIS PARK IS READY TO BE BUILT AS SOON AS WE CAN RAISE THE MONEY AND THE COMMUNITY IS EAGER TO START USING IT. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >>FOLLOWING WILLIAM CLARK WILL BE WARREN. >>IN MARCH I SAW A TERRIBLE THING HAPPEN. I LIVE IN A RETIREMENT PLACE A VERY NICE ONE AT THE FOOT OF QUEEN ANN HILL AND THERE’S A SLIVER OF A PARK MAYBE SEATTLE’S SMALLEST PARK ADJACENT TO OUR BUILDING. IT’S NOT ACROSS THE STREET. IT’S ON OUR BLOCK. I CAME DOWN WITH A BAG OF GROCERIES FOR SOME OF THESE PEOPLE LIVING IN TENTS AND THERE WERE THREE POLICE MEN AND SIX PARKS DEPARTMENT PEOPLE PUTTING ON A THEATERICAL DISPLACEMENT. I PROMISE YOU IT WAS A TERRIBLE EMBARRASSMENT TO THE PEOPLE IN THE TENTS AND TO MYSELF. I HAD NO IDEA HOW LITTLE COMPASSION SEATTLE THAT IS ALL OF US HAVE FOR PEOPLE LIVING IN TENTS. I ADMIT THAT THEY ARE LARGELY THERE BECAUSE OF MENTAL ILLNESS WHICH INCLUDES ALCOHOLISM. I SPOKE WITH THE– THE COURT: THANK YOU, MR. CLARK. CAN YOU JUST WRAP UP SIR? GO AHEAD AND WRAP UP IF YOU DON’T MIND. >>MY SUGGESTION IS THAT WE CHANGE THE LAW SO THAT PERSONS CAN USE THE PARKS WITH TENTS. >>THANK YOU. >>IT WILL BE VERY DIFFICULT. >>THANK YOU SIR. FOLLOWING WARREN WILL BE SHANNON ELLIS BROCK. >>GOOD MORNING OR GOOD AFTERNOON. MY NAME IS WARREN AND I STAND HERE TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT COUNCIL BILL 119607. IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, FOSSIL FUELS MAKE OUR PRODUCING 63.5% OF THE ELECTICAL ENERGY GENERATED. IN TACOMA THERE’S ONLY 3% PRODUCED BY FOSSIL FUELS, 2% IN SNOHOMISH COUNTY, 2% IN SEATTLE AND ENERGY IS 59% BY FOSSIL FUELS. WEATHERIZEATION WOULD PRODUCE AN 18% BY UNITED STATES WEATHERIZEATION BOARD 18% EFFICIENCY GAIN BY GOING INTO THE WEATHERIZEATION. BY GENERATION BY NATURAL GAS IS 39% EFFICIENT, BY DIESEL AT 32% EFFICIENT YET WE’RE WILLING TO TAKE OUT 82% EFFICIENT FURNACES AND PUT IN GENERATION BY FOSSIL FUELS TO PROVIDE EXTRA FOSSIL FUELS. IN FRIDAY’S MEETING WITH COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN PLAINEDDA WAS ASKED DOES SEATTLE HAVE ENOUGH ABILITY TO PROVIDE ELECTICAL ENERGY. THE ANSWER WAS WE HAVE ENOUGH ANLT. IT WAS NEVER SAID WE HAVE ENOUGH ELECTICAL ENERGY TO PRODUCE FOR ALL OF THE STUFF THAT WE WANT TO TRANSFER OVER, THE STUFF WE WANT TO BRING ONLINE ALL OF THE CARS, TRUCKS, BIKES, MOTOR SCOOTERS OR ELECTRIC SCOOTERS AND EVERYTHING ELSE. I BELIEVE THE ELECTICAL ENERGY WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO PRODUCE TO ACCOMPLISH THIS TO SWITCH OVER ON HEATING OIL TO START WITH AND NATURAL GAS IS NOT FAR DOWN THE LINE AS IDENTIFIED BY THE COUNCIL COMMITTEE THAT I THINK THOSE ABLGHTS TO PRODUCE THAT WILL BE USING PRIMARILY FOSSIL FUELS TO DO IT. >>THANK YOU, SIR. >>SO LAST THING TO SAY WE CAN GAIN A LOT MORE BY REDUCING OUR AMOUNT OF ENERGY WE USE THAN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO ELIMINATE ONE SECTOR OF IT THAT’S EFFICIENT. >>THANK YOU. FOLLOWING SHANNON. I’LL READ THREE NAMES OFF AFTER YOU. GO AHEAD, SHANNON. >>HI. MY NAME IS SHANNON ELLIS BROCK AND HUMANS HERE TODAY BECAUSE THE NORTH WIND COALITION ASKED ME TO SPEAK. I HAD RESERVATIONS SO I HAD TO DO SOME RESEARCH. I’M WITH COOPERATIVE CREDIT UNION AND WE HAVE WORKED WITH THE CITY ON THE PAST ON INITIATIVES SUCH AS THE COMMUNITY POWER WORKS. . WE WORK WITH SEATTLE CITY LIGHT AND WE’RE IN FAVOR OF THE HEATING OIL TAX. I THINK A BIG CONCERN IS THE MIDDLE INCOME PEOPLE THAT PEOPLE ARE WORRIED THAT WE’LL MISS THE MODERATE INCOME FAMILIES AND I JUST WANT TO REMIND COUNCIL AND PEOPLE THAT ARE OPPOSING THIS THERE ARE OPTIONS AVAILABLE. I’M NOT HERE JUST TO TELL OUR CREDIT UNION BUT THERE ARE FINANCIAL CONSTITUTIONS THAT OFFER LOW INCOME FINANCING OPTIONS FROM PEOPLE TO SWITCH FROM OIL HEAT. MOST OF THOSE PROGRAMS INCLUDE OIL TANK DECONVERSION AND REALLY QUICKLY BECAUSE I HAVE TEN SECONDS LEFT BASED ON THE RESEARCH THAT I WAS GIVEN IT COST $1,800 A MONTH WITH THE NEW TAX TO HEAT A HOUSE WITH OIL. A LOAN PAYMENT FOR A DECKLESS HEAT PUMP IS ABOUT $100 A MONTH SO IT’S AN ENERGY AND COST SAVINGS TO HOMEOWNERS TO DO THAT AND AGAIN THIS PROGRAM IS FOR EVERYBODY, LOW INCOME, MODERATE INCOME FAMILIES. THERE’S INSTITUTIONS LIKE THE CREDIT UNION AND OTHERS THAT ARE HERE TO HELP SO THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. >>THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE] . >>SO SHANNON WAS OUR NINTH SPEAKER OF AROUND 30 SO WE’RE NOT DOING A VERY EFFECTIVE JOB OF CUTTING OFF THE MIKE IN ONE MINUTE BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE GOING OVER AND I RECOGNIZE IT’S TOUGH TO SPEAK UNDER A MINUTE I FULLY RECOGNIZE THAT SO MADAME CLERK I’M GOING TO ASK THAT I DON’T HAVE TO BE HEAVY HANDED AT ONE MINUTE 10 SECONDS JUST PLEASE TURN OFF THE MIC SO YOU’VE BEEN FOREWARNED THAT THE MIC WILL BE GOING OFF IN ONE MINUTE TEN SECONDS SO TRY TO WRAP IT UP EARLIER AND BE A LITTLE MORE FLEXIBLE SO HAVING SAID THAT LEA MISSIC WILL BE FOLLOWED BY REBECCA SIRE. LEA, REBECCA THEN ALEC. >>GOOD AFTERNOON. I’M LEA MISSIC AND I’M WITH CLIMATE SOLUTIONS. I’M HERE TO TESTIFY IN SUPPORT OF THE HEATING OIL ORDINANCE. IN WASHINGTON STATE GREENHOUSE GAS POLLUTION STEMMING FROM HAS BEEN GROWING. HERE PRESENTING ALMOST A FIFTH OF CARBON POLLUTION FROM HOMES. HEATING OIL IS A PUBLIC HEALTH ISSUE. THAT NUMBER IS INCREASING. LONG TERM EXPOSURE CAN CAUSE LIVER AND KIDNEY DAMAGE. CURRENTLY MAKING THE SWITCH DOES INCLUDE UP FRONT COST WHICH IS WHY WE SUPPORT THAT FOLKS WITH THE INCOME QUALIFICATIONS INCLUDING RENTERS WILL HAVE THEIR HOME UPGRADES FULLY COVERED AND OTHERS WILL RECEIVE REBATES TO MAKE THE SWITCH. HEATING OIL IS EXPENSIVE. ONCE THE COST OF THE SWITCH IS COVERED PEOPLE WILL HAVE EFFICIENT CLEAN HEATING AT A MUCH LOWER COST AND ELIGIBLE FOR MORE ENERGY AND PREWEATHERRIZEATION SERVICES. I’M REALLY GLAD THIS LEGISLATION ALLOWS FOR A JUST TRANSITION. REVENUE DIRECTED TO WORK FORCE DEVELOPMENT SUPPORT FOR CLEAN HEATING TECHNOLOGY SKILLS. THIS ORDINANCE IS WELL CRAFTED AND WILL IMPROVE PUBLIC HEALTH AND GIVE FOLKS THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE CLEANER CHEAPER HEATING. THANK YOU. THIS IS HOW WE NEED TO ADDRESS THE CLIMATE CRISIS. >>THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE] . >>REBECCA FOLLOWED BY ALEC THEN JOE. >>HI THERE. I WAS ASKED TO TALK ABOUT THE REAL ESTATE PERSPECTIVE OF THE HEATING OIL ORDINANCE WHICH WE SUPPORT. BASICALLY THE MARKET IS SHOWING US THAT PEOPLE WANT HEALTHY HOMES. PEOPLE SPEND 80 TO 90% OF THEIR TIME IN THEIR HOME AND FROM OIL THE DANGERS FROM SPILLS, THE CHALLENGES FROM RENTERS WHO HAVE TO PUT HEATING OFF AND BE THE FILLERS OF THE TANKS OF HEATING OIL. IT’S A BURDEN AND BUYERS ARE WANTING CLEANER HEALTHIER TECHNOLOGIES. BUILDERS ARE STARTING TO BUILD ELECTRIC HOMES. THIS IS A GOOD SMART STEP FORWARD FOR CUTTING OUR CARBON EMISSIONS. IT’S A GOOD 1% AND A GOOD HEALTHY CHUNK OF CARBON EMISSIONS REDUCTIONS AND ALSO PUTS US ON THE PATHWAY TO BEING A VIBRANT HEALTHY COMMUNITY FOR THE LONG TERM. IF WE WANT TO HAVE HOMES THAT PEOPLE WANT TO LIVE IN THIS IS A REALLY GOOD STEP SO AT THAT POINT I WILL LEAVE IT AT THAT. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU. [APPLAUSE] . >>DO YOU MIND TAKING THE MIKE OVER HERE AND YOU’LL FOLLOW ALEC. >>GOOD AFTERNOON. I’M ALEC WITH 350 SEATTLE HERE TO URGE YOU TO PASS THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE VERSION OF THE OIL HEATING TAX ORDINANCE. AS I’M SURE YOU KNOW ON FRIDAY A CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE OF 10,000 PEOPLE MARCHED ON CITY HALL TO DEMAND CLAIMANT ACTION AND THOUSANDS OF THEM WERE YOUNG PEOPLE I WAS INVOLVED PARTLY IN ORGANIZING THAT AND I WAS BLOWN AWAY BY HOW MANY OF THOSE PEOPLE WERE YOUNG PEOPLE. AND WHILE I CERTAINLY CAN’T SPEAK FOR THOSE 10,000 PEOPLE I DON’T THINK IT’S A WILD THING TO SEE THAT EVEY SINGLE ONE OF THEM WOULD BE DEEPLY ALARMED TO FIND OUT THE COUNCIL WAS CONSIDERING DELETING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS ORDINANCE AND THIS COUNSEL HAD BEEN ASKED TO EXTEND THE DEADLINE BY WHICH WE WOULD PHASE OUT DAMAGING FOSSIL FUELS FROM OUR ENERGY. SO WITH THAT SAID I’LL JUST WRAP UP BY SAYING PLEASE HONOR THE YOUTH LEADERSHIP WE SAW ON FRIDAY. PLEASE HONOR OUR YOUNGER GENERATION AND PASS THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE VERSION OF THIS ORDINANCE WITHOUT DELETING IT BY A TSENGEL DAY. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >>THANK YOU ALEC. [APPLAUSE] . >>THANK YOU. I CAME DOWN HERE TO GIVE MY THOUGHTS ON THE HEATING OIL TAX. I HAVE A PROPERTY HEATED WITH HEATING OIL AND I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A VERY RELIABLE SOURCE OF HEAT AND EASILY MAINTAINED AND COST EFFECTIVE FOR MY TENANTS WHICH I PAY THE BILL REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE MARKET PRICE FOR OIL IS. I UNDERSTAND THIS BILL CAME OUT OF A REPORT FROM THE BULLET FOUNDATION. THEY SAID HERE’S WHAT WE WANT YOU TO DO AND YOU GUYS ARE DOING IT. A COUPLE THINGS TO THINK ABOUT IS THAT THIS IS A BIG WORLD WE LIVE IN. OIL HAPPENS. IT’S GOING TO COME OUT OF THE GROUND. YOU CAN SAY WE’RE NOT DPOAG TO BURN IT IN SEATTLE BUT IT WILL GET MINED AND WILL COME OUT. SOME ALTERNATIVE THOUGHTS THAT YOU MIGHT LOOK AT IS SUCH THINGS AS REQUIRING EFFICIENCY. ANNUAL FUEL AIR MIXTURE TESTS THAT KIND OF THING TO GET US TO MAKE SURE THAT WE’RE BURNING IT AT. >>THANK YOU JOE. OUR NEXT TWO SPEAKERS ARE THE HONORABLE MICHAEL FULLER JURIS AND SHAWNY WHEELER. THE HONORABLE AND THEN SHAWNY. PLEASE PROCEED. >>I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ALL OF YA’LL TELLING HONORABLE MICHAEL FULLER A NEW AMERICA WHEN AN OLD AMERICA IS IN CONFLICT. SO THIS IS A BETRAY AGAINST OUR ARMED FORCES WHO FOUGHT TO MAKE THIS COUNTRY SAFE FREE AND SECURE ON THE STREET AND IT’S DEVASTATING TO ME. AND IT’S OPEN NO SANCTUARY FOR CRIMINAL ACT. HR3004, HR3009 EENFORCEMENT OF THE CITY ACT. AND THE VIOLATION OF GEORGE H.W. BUSH WHO SIGNED INTO LAW AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT JULY 26 OF 1990 AND SECTION 504 TO BE ABLE TO NOT BEING AND VIOLATES THE FEDERAL FUNDING ACT OF 2000. ALSO OUR FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHT DUE PROCESS TO PROTECT THE AMENDMENT RIGHTS AND DUE PROCESS EQUAL PROTECTION OF OUR 14TH AMENDMENT AND PROCEDURE DUE PROCESS. >>THANK YOU SIR. >>I’M TIRED OF BEING SICK AND TIRED. >>THANK YOU, SIR. >>FOLLOWING SHAWNY WILL BE. >>GOOD FOB PRESIDENT AND MEMBERS OF THE COULD YOU BE. I’M THE POLITICAL DIRECTOR FOR JOINT COUNCIL BUT I’M NOT HERE TO TALK TO YOU IN THAT PERSPECTIVE OR THAT HAT. WHEN I LOOK AT THIS POLICY AND NOTICE ALL OF THE ZIP CODES AND SURROUNDING AREAS I THINK OF MY GREAT-GRANDFATHER WHO MIGRATED FROM A LITTLE TOWN CALLED MINEOLA, TEXAS WHICH DOES NOT EXIST TODAY. HE GREW UP OUTSIDE OF THE PLANTATION AND MADE HIS WAY TO SEATTLE WASHINGTON AND BUILT WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS A WORKING MIDDLE CLASS AMERICAN DREAM AND THAT’S IN THE CENTRAL DISTRICT. AND SO WHEN I’M LOOKING AT THIS POLICY I DON’T SEE A WIN FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE. I SEE ANOTHER WAY OF SEATTLE AND PUSH OUT COLOR AND OUR MOST VULNERABLE. THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU.>>GREETINGS CITY COUNCIL. MY NAME IS SI R A.J. AND I’VE BEEN HERE FOR 20 YEARS. I DON’T KNOW IF ANYBODY ELSE HAS WORKED WITH HEATING OIL BUT I CHALLENGE YOU TO FIND TWO THINGS, ONE, ANYBODY WHO LIVES WITH HEATING OIL WHO PREFERS THAT OVER ANYTHING ELSE AND CHALLENGE YOU TO FIND ANYBODY WHO WORKS WITH HEATING OIL AND I HAVE WHO ENJOYS THAT WORK SO I COULD SPEAK TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL ELEMENT ONE GALLON OF OIL CAN POLLUTE HUNDREDS FER THOUSANDS OF GALLONS OF FRESH WATER. CARBON AND SO FORTH. I’LL LET YOU SPEAK ABOUT JOBST. WE’RE HIRING AND CAN TRAIN ANYBODY TO INSTALL HEAT PUMPS ON THE JOB PAYED TRAINING FULL BENEFITS. WE’RE HIRING SO IF YOU HAVE PEOPLE LOOKING FOR WORK PLEASE SEND THEM OUR WAY. THANK YOU SO MUCH. >> STEVE JOE. NINA, STEVE? SAY THANK YOU NINA SAY THANK YOU, GOOD AFTERNOON. I WORK FOR PROGRESSIVE I AM ADDRESSING YOU TODAY WITH HEATING AND OIL. WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME TO ADDRESS FOSSIL FUEL USE IN SEATTLE AND THIS IS A STEP FORWARD. CREATING JOBS, WORKING FOR BOTH COMMUNITIES, AND WORKING THROUGH THE USE OF FOSSIL FUELS. I LOOK FORWARD TO MOVING FORWARD WITH THIS. >>THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME >> JUST A SECOND.>>GO AHEAD, PLEASE, THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. >>MILLIONS OF YOUNG PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD, THOUSANDS IN SEATTLE. >>SOME ARE MAD AND SCARED. WE ARE CALLING ON OUR LEADER TO TAKE ACTION MY TASK FORCE IS AN ACTION ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS, ADVANCING WASHINGTON STATE. YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TODAY TO TAKE MEANINGFUL ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND ADDRESSING THIS LEGISLATION WITH THIS ORDINANCE. THIS IS A MODERN POLICY FOR HOMEOWNERS IN TRANSITION FROM OUTDATED, AND INEFFICIENT SYSTEMS, POWERED BY CARBON ELECTRICITY.>>HELLO. I AM HERE TO TALK ABOUT PASSING THIS WITH THE STRONGEST POSSIBLE TERMS. AS A CHILD I SAW FIRSTHAND SOME OF OF HOW POLLUTING OIL HEATING CAN BE. I WILL NEVER FORGET WHEN I WENT OUTSIDE OF OUR BORDERS AND WE TURNED ON THE FAUCET AND BROWN AND YELLOW WATER CAME OUT IT IS CLEAR BASED ON THE CLIMATE STRIKE THAT WE HAD RECENTLY THAT WE DRASTIC ACTION. THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN DELAY ON THESE TYPES OF ORDINANCES. I WANT TO REITERATE THAT WE NEED TO START THINKING IN TERMS OF FUTURE GENERATIONS OF PEOPLE WERE GOING TO COME AFTER US. THE FUTURE IS IN CLEAN ELECTRICITY AND GOOD PAYING JOBS. SO THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU FOR COMING FORWARD. [ APPLAUSE ] SUSAN, THEN JARED. I’M HERE TO GIVE YOU MY STRONG SUPPORT FOR THE APPOINTMENT AS THE DIRECTOR OF HOUSING. EMILY IS ONE OF THE SMARTEST PEOPLE I KNOW. SHE IS SINGULARLY CAPABLE OF UNDERSTANDING PERCEIVED CONSTRAINT AND WEAVING THROUGH THE PATH TO THE SOLUTION THAT NO ONE ELSE HAS SEEN. SHE IS ABLE TO DO THIS BECAUSE SHE LISTENS. I’VE SEEN HER IN CONVERSATIONS WITH POLICYMAKERS, COMMUNITY MEMBERS AND ADVOCATES. SHE FEARS WITH AMY WHAT THEY MEAN, ABSORBS THE WISDOM, AND IMPORTANTLY HERE’S WHAT IS NOT SETH. SHE IS A GIFTED TRANSLATOR OF IDEAS. SHE UNDERSTANDS THE POWER OF HOUSING TO TRANSFORM RISING COMMUNITIES. AND FOR ENERGY AND PASSION IS INFECTIOUS HER HUSTLE, HER ABILITY TO GET STUFF DONE AT TIMES WHEN EVERYONE ELSE THINKS THERE IS NOT ANOTHER WAY AROUND.>>THANK YOU, WE HAVE JULIA BUCK. >>THANK YOU FOR HAVING US. MY NAME IS JARED. I HAVE DONE PRIVACY RESEARCH AND INTELLIGENCE RESEARCH WHICH THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON. I WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK IN FAVOR OF THE STABILITY ORDINANCE. IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO SEATTLE AND OR IT WILL TAKE A LITTLE BIT LONGER, WE WILL HAVE A COUPLE INCHES OF TEXT. WE TALKED ABOUT IT LAST TIME. WE WANT TO FOCUS ON THE LANGUAGE. SAYING THAT THESE THINGS DO NOT STORE INFORMATION, THE LICENSE PLATE READERS ARE NOT ACCURATE. THEY HAVE TO LITERALLY SWITCH TO PROCESS ANOTHER CAR GOING DOWN THE ROAD FIVE MINUTES LATER. IT IS NOT THE SPECIFIC LANGUAGE THAT WE CAN RELY ON. THANK YOU.>>THANK YOU. >>GOOD AFTERNOON. I’M HERE FROM THE ACLU OF WASHINGTON, HERE TO SUPPORT STRENGTHENING OF THE AMENDMENTS TODAY. I WOULD LIKE TO THAT THIS ORDINANCE IS ABOUT PROTECTING VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES FROM THE IMPACT OF TECHNOLOGY, AND THE LICENSE PLATE READERS, ICE HAS ALREADY COME KNOCKING ON THE DOORS OF LOCAL JURISDICTIONS TO GET THAT INFORMATION FOR JURISDICTION PURPOSES. RIDING THE SAME DATA TO A THIRD PARTY AGENCY. WASHED OUT PROVIDE THAT INFORMATION TO ICE TODAY AND I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND YOU OF THE LICENSE AND THE ARGUMENTS ABOUT THE VISUAL SYSTEM BEFORE TO RUN SEARCHES FOR INTEGRATION INSURANCE. PLEASE STRENGTHEN THE AMENDMENTS AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, THANK YOU. >>THANK YOU, SEAN. >>GOOD AFTERNOON, MY NAME IS JULIA. I WOULD LIKE TO ENCOURAGE THE PASSING OF THE HEALTHY HOMES ORDINANCE. I DID GROW UP IN AN OIL HEATED RESIDENCE. I WAS A CHILD AT THE TIME I REMEMBER THE STRESS AND EXCAVATION REQUIRED WHEN SPRUNG I CARE ABOUT CARBON AND I WOULD LOVE EVERYONE EXPERIENCE LOWER MONTHLY BILLS AND SENSITIVITY. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. [ APPLAUSE ]>>THIS IS AN OBJECTION, WE GOT THROUGH MOST OF THEM. WE HAVE A FEW MORE BUT WE WERE AGGRESSIVELY GENEROUS. I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE TOWARD PAYMENT OF THE BILLS. PLEASE MOVE THAT FORWARD. >>NEW CLAIMS THROUGH SEPTEMBER 13TH, 119657. MOVED AND SET ANY QUESTIONS? >>PLEASE CALL THE PASSAGE OF THE BILL.>>GONZALEZ? PACHECO?>>PLEASE READ ITEM NUMBER ONE THAT FILED ON THIS ADDRESS. >>THE BUDGET ADDRESS ON THE 2020 BUDGET. >>THIS IS A FORM OF PROCEDURALLY ACCEPTED SPEECH. AT THIS POINT I WILL MOVE TO ACCEPT IT, FILE 314433. MOVED AND SECONDED. THOSE AND FILING, PLEASE VOTE IN FAVOR. THOSE OPPOSED, VOTE NO THE MOTION TO CARRY HAS BEEN ACCEPTED AND FILED. WE HAD SOME AGENDA REORDERING IN THE AGENDA ITEMS.>>THE COMMITTEE AGENDA, 11519, RELATED TO SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY, THE USE AND ACCEPTING FOR THE SEATTLE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION USE, FOR LICENSE PLATE READERS. PASSED AS AMENDED. >>BEAR WITH ME A LITTLE BIT. SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THIS ALMOST RELIGIOUSLY. SOME OF YOU HAVE NOT HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO OVER THIS. I WOULD LIKE TO WALK US THROUGH IT. THIS LEGISLATION, LET ME BACK UP ON THIS. IN CONSIDERATION FOR THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE 2017 SURVEY OF THIS ORDINANCE. MANY OF YOU HAVE LOOKED AT THE PASSAGE OF THE WORK, AND THIS SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCE. THE TECHNOLOGY OFFICE WOULD REQUIRE THIS SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY IS USED BY CITY DEPARTMENTS. TWENTY-NINE TECHNOLOGIES WERE IDENTIFIED IN THIS. CITY LIFE, THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, THE POLICE DEPARTMENT 29 TECHNOLOGIES IN THE IMPACT REPORT. THE ACQUISITION OF TECHNOLOGY AND THE USE. THE REPORT WOULD BE SUBMITTED FOR RETROACTIVE TECHNOLOGIES AND PROPOSED TECHNOLOGIES. TECHNOLOGIES COULD BE USED IN THE FUTURE AND THIS PROCESS COULD BE QUITE CONFERENCE OF AS A FIVE-STEP PROCESS. YOU HAVE THE DEPARTMENT DRAFTING IT, THIS SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCE AND AN ENGAGEMENT PIECE WHERE A PUBLIC HEARING COULD COME TOGETHER FOR THE DEPARTMENT. PROVIDING FEEDBACK AND SOME MONITORING. WE ARE AWARE OF WHAT IS GOING ON. THERE IS A WORKING GROUP, AS PART OF THE ASSESSMENT DOCUMENT, LOOKING AT CIVIL LIBERTY CONCERNS. LOOKING AT LEADERSHIP AS WELL. LOOKING AT THE ASSESSMENT AND WORKING WITH THE CEO, WORKING GROUP CONCERNS AND THE PROCESS WE’VE SEEN WITH THEM. ALL OF THE PRIVACY ISSUES AND SURVEILLANCE ISSUES. ALL OF THE ISSUES THAT SURFACE. THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR QUITE SOME TIME. USE OF TRAFFIC CAMERAS, CLOSED- CIRCUIT CIRCUIT TELEVISION, AND AUTOMATED LICENSE PLATE READERS. LOOKING INTO THE BACKGROUND AND ALMOST 19 YEARS NOW, THIS HAS BEEN SINCE 2007. ALMOST EVERY STATE IN OUR COUNTRY, LOOKING AT THESE TECHNOLOGIES. LOOKING AT THE PRIVACY NEEDS THAT ARE ADDRESSED. LOOKING AT WHAT IS PRESENTED TO THE COUNCIL. THEY WERE MAYBE A FEW INCHES THICK. THERE WERE A LOT OF RESOURCES AND TIME. IT WAS HELPFUL, BUT TO SOME EXTENT, NEEDED EXECUTIVE REPORTERS. THAT BECAME KNOWN AS THE CONDENSED SURVEILLANCE PURPOSE. THE DENTIST PACKAGE WAS ATTACHED TO THE LEGISLATION, CREATING A PRIVATE ACTION WITH THESE WORKING TOGETHER. THE NEGOTIATION PROCESS AND WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAD THE POWER TO ORDER IT. I USE THAT TERM LOOSELY. I’VE SAT DOWN WITH THE PRIVACY ADVOCATE, AND I’VE GONE THROUGH AS MUCH LANGUAGE AS POSSIBLE. I’VE TAKEN THROUGH THAT PROCESS, 19 POINTS WERE RAISED. WE COULDN’T QUITE GET THERE YET, WE WENT BACK TO THE TABLE. WE PARTNERED WITH THE WORKING GROUP. WE WERE LOOKING AT FOUR DIFFERENT OPPONENTS. AND WE LOOKED AT THE OPINION THAT IT RAISED SIGNIFICANT LEGAL ISSUES THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED. AND WE NEEDED TO TALK ABOUT THOSE ISSUES AS WOULD BE APPROPRIATE AND LEGAL ISSUES WITH BE RAISED. FROM THAT PROCESS, I WILL TELL YOU THAT WE WOULD MEET AT THE LAST WEEK. ALL OF THE EMINENCE THAT WERE VOTED ON AND AGREED TO BY THE TABLE ARE INCORPORATED IN WHAT I WOULD CALL NUMBER 11. ADDRESSING SOME CONCERNS THAT HAD BEEN RAISED, I THINK COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALES HAD PERHAPS RAISED THEM. WE CAME UP WITH A PACKAGE OF AMENDMENTS AND THE TABLE, REVIEWED BY LAW AND ACCEPTED. WE HAVE THAT SWEEP OF AMENDMENTS READY TO GO, WE NEED A LITTLE TIME TO HARMONIZE THOSE CHANGES BUT THE CASE LEGISLATION, SINCE THERE WERE CHANGES. THAT IS READY. SO WE CAN ADVANCE ON THAT AND LOOK AT WHAT ENCOMPASSES THE LOOK AT THE TABLE. COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN HAS A SERIES OF AMENDMENT, COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN AND THE SECOND WE WOULD STILL NEED ONE MORE WEEK TO HARMONIZE. MY ENCOMPASSING AMENDMENT WOULD WAIT. IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE FOR ME TO DO THAT WHEN WE ARE WHERE WE ARE WITH THE AMENDMENTS. I’M NOT SURE EXACTLY, BUT I THINK THERE ARE FOUR. I APPRECIATE COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN. WE ARE WORKING ON THE LEGISLATION FEVERISHLY. I APPRECIATE THE EFFORTS AND WHAT HE IS TRYING TO DO. I COME HERE NOT SO MUCH SUBSTANCE, BUT POLICY. THERE IS A PROCESS AND I’M LOOKING AT THE TECHNOLOGIES. AND THE PROCESS, TO LOOK AT THIS IN PARTICULAR IT IS A PIECE THAT REALLY CRAFTED IN RICHMOND IN THIS PIECE OF LEGISLATION THIS IS A CAREFUL PUBLIC PROCESS THAT WAS DONE. IF THAT WAS SORT OF A DEAL, THAT’S HOW WE MOVE FORWARD, THE LANGUAGE NOW, MY UNDERSTANDING WAS AGREED UPON DURING THAT PROCESS, IT IS WHAT WE ARE REVISITING NOW. ONE OF THE PROCESS 27 WERE TECHNOLOGIES TO GO, THAT WILL ERODE THE CITY ABILITY TO COME UP WITH MEANINGFUL POLICY. WE COULD WORDSMITH THIS FOREVER. I COULD SHARE THESE TECHNOLOGIES. ONE FOR 19 YEARS. ONE FOR 12 YEARS. THIS IS A RETROACTIVE VIEW. IF WE ARE TO NEGOTIATE WITH COMMUNITIES AND EXPERTS, LET’S HAVE A GOOD PROCESS. I’M LOOKING AT THESE AMENDMENTS SOMEWHAT BIASED. I HAVE ASKED THE DEPARTMENT TO STEP UP BIG, AND THEY DID. THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCES KNOWN TO THE COUNTRY. I THINK IT IS MEANT TO BE VOTED ON. I THINK IT IS READY TO BE VOTED ON. I THINK WE WOULD STILL LIKE TO WALK THROUGH SOME OF THE AMENDMENTS. I AM NOT SURE WHICH ONES I HAVE TO SUSPEND THE RULES ON DECK ALL OF THEM ARE RIGHT. I DID IT THE RIGHT WAY, BY THE WAY. IN ALL SERIOUSNESS, WE CAN HEAR FROM COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN. YOU HAVE THE FLOOR. >>I APPRECIATE YOUR REMARKS IN THE PROCESS YOU HAVE LAID OUT HERE. YOU HAVE LED A VERY INTENSE, THOUGHTFUL AND THOROUGH PROCESS, HERE I AM STILL PROPOSING AMENDMENTS, THAT I HOPE YOU AND OTHERS DID NOT SEE THIS AS CRITICISM OF THE PROCESS. AS I HAVE DUG INTO THIS, I APPRECIATE THE NULL ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF THE LAST FEW WEEKS, TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THIS, AND EVEN HEARING SOME OF THIS IN PUBLIC COMMENT TODAY, IT IS COMPLEX. I WAS WORKING ON THIS LATE LAST NIGHT. WAS DISCUSSING IT WITH MY WIFE AND A FRIEND OF HERS. THE CONVERSATION IMMEDIATELY TURNED TO HOW COMPLEX THIS IS, WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT TECHNOLOGY? IT IS ALL CHANGING SO FAST AND WHAT ARE PEOPLE DOING WITH OUR DATA? I DON’T KNOW HOW AS A GOVERNMENT WE ARE GOING TO DEAL WITH THIS. I DON’T KNOW HOW WE CAN ADEQUATELY MANAGE ALL THE DATA THAT WE ARE CAPABLE OF CAPTURING YOU HAVE RUN A PROCESS ON TECHNOLOGIES AND IT WAS OUTSTANDING AND EXTREMELY TIME-CONSUMING. THESE WERE SOME OF THE EASIER ONES AND WE HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO, TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO ADEQUATELY SAFEGUARD THIS FIELD THAT IS CONSTANTLY EVOLVING AND HAS CRITICAL COMPLICATIONS TO THE THINGS THAT WE SHARE ON THIS FLOOR. I SEE THIS WORKING TODAY, AND LOOKING AT PROPOSED ORDINANCES, AS AN OPPORTUNITY TO PAUSE AND LEARN, AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT I THINK WILL CONSTANTLY EVOLVE IN FORWARD. WITH THAT, COLLEAGUES, YOU SHOULD HAVE FOUR SEPARATE AMENDMENTS ON WHAT I WILL CALL THIS SALMON COLORED PIECE OF PAPER. NEAR THE FOUR YELLOW ONES THAT ARE BEING HANDED OUT IN A TIMELY FASHION. THERE ARE MINOR CHANGES, MAYBE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES HAD TO HAVE BEEN THAT CAME AFTER TIME. I’M GOING TO WALK THROUGH THE ORDER OF THE AMENDMENTS. THE FIRST ONE I HAVE IS NUMBERED. THIS DOCUMENT IN FRONT OF YOU OUTLINES NINE DIFFERENT THINGS THAT WOULD CHANGE. THESE ARE THINGS THAT LAST WEEK HAD BEEN REVIEWED. THERE WERE APARTMENTS, I WILL CARE NOT TO MISCHARACTERIZE ANYONE BUT IT SEEMS THERE WAS A BROAD CONSENSUS THAT THESE WOULD BE CONSISTENT AND ALLOW THEM TO DO WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO. COUNCIL PRESIDENT, IN THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME I CAN WALK THROUGH NIGHT OF THESE PIECES IN AN ATTEMPT TO CLARIFY THEM. I’M NOT SURE THAT I WILL BE ABLE TO CLARIFY EVERYTHING BECAUSE IT IS SOMEWHAT TECHNICAL. OR I COULD JUST TAKE QUESTIONS FROM PEOPLE WHO WANT ME TO WALK THROUGH A SPECIFIC ITEM NUMBER. I MENTIONED THAT THIS IS SALMON COLORED. IF YOU PRINTED OUT, IT IS DATED 9,232,019. SAYS V2 BEHIND THAT DATE IN THE HEADER. JUST TO BE CLEAR, WE ARE ALL RUNNING ON THE SAME THING. >>THE QUESTION IS WEATHER WE TAKE QUESTIONS OR IF WE WANT THE COUNCIL MEMBER TO PLOW THROUGH IT. >>YOU CAN DO IT SWIFTLY IF YOU WOULD LIKE. >>I WOULD LIKE TO DO SO SWIFTLY. I HAVE QUESTIONS ON SOME OF THEM >>THESE ARE LARGELY MOVE ON THE ITEMS. THESE AE ALL THE CHANGES INCORPORATED IN AMENDMENT FIVE. ESTABLISHING THE CLOSED-CIRCUIT TV CAN ONLY BE USED FOR PURPOSES OUTLINED IN SECTION 1.2, TRAFFIC CONDITIONS, AFTER AN UNPLANNED INCIDENT. TRAFFIC IMPACTED BY A PLANNED EVENT. CLOSE SERVICE TV THAT CANNOT BE FACIAL RECOGNITION I WOULD ASK THAT THIS, IN THE CASE IN QUESTION. THIS IS WHY I AM NOT PUTTING THIS PARTICULAR I WOULD AGREE WITH NUMBER TWO. THE LICENSE PLATE READER TECHNOLOGY AND ALL THAT. I AGREE WITH THAT. IT, IF YOU TURN TO THE PAGE, LOOK AT THE GOVERNING DOCUMENT, IT CLEARLY STATES THAT. LET ME BACK UP ANY DIRECTOR ASSESSMENT OF TECHNOLOGY, IT CLEARLY SAYS THAT THE LANGUAGE IN THE REPORT SAYS THIS. JUST A MOMENT. CAN I SEE THOSE? FACIAL RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY IS NOT IN USE AT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION. SHOULD IT BE CONSIDERED IN THE FUTURE, THE SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCE SPECIFIES THAT ANY MATERIAL OR CHANGES TO CURRENT CAMERA TECHNOLOGY WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCE AND WILL REQUIRE ANOTHER PROCESS. IN THE DOCUMENT ALREADY IT SAYS THAT THEY ARE NOT USING IT. SHOULD THEY USE IT, ANOTHER SAR HE TRIGGERED. I SEE THE OTHER SECTIONS ON PAGE 23 WHERE CLEARLY SAYS EXACTLY WHAT THIS TECHNOLOGY IS TO BE USED FOR. OUR COMMITMENT IS TO USE IT ONLY FOR THOSE OF US HIS. THESE SYSTEMS ARE STRICTLY FOR THIS PURPOSE. NO INFORMATION ABOUT THE PLACE THAT ARE CAPTURED TO CREATE TRAVEL TIMES AS STORED OR USED FOR OTHER PURPOSES. THAT LANGUAGE WAS EXPANDED UPON IN HIS FIRST CUT, IF YOU WILL HEAR WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT IS USED AND THAT THIS IS CREATED, USING THIS AS AN EXAMPLE THAT IS BOTH REDUNDANT AND NECESSARY THERE ARE OTHER ISSUES EMBEDDED IN SOME OF THESE THAT QUITE CANDIDLY WE HAVE PRESENTED TO YOU AND YOU NEGOTIATED A DEAL EITHER GO FOR NUMBER TWO OR GO FOR NUMBER HREE. >>I DISAGREE WITH YOU, THE SIR IS QUITE EXTENSIVE. I WANT PUT THIS IN THE CONDENSED SIX PAGE DOCUMENT, TO MAKE SURE THAT FOLKS WHO ARE TRYING TO TRACK THIS IN THE PUBLIC, THEY MAY NOT BE ABLE TO FIND THE LANGUAGE THAT YOU FOUND. FACIAL THE MISSION SOFTWARE IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT PIECE OF WHAT WE ARE DOING THIS DOES NOT ADD, IT WAS ALREADY PART OF IT. IT IS SO CLEAR THAT SOMEBODY MAY HAVE TIME TO READ A SIX PAGE DOCUMENT, BUT NOT A MULTI- HUNDRED PAGE DOCUMENT. NUMBER THREE CLARIFIES IT, SOCIAL MEDIA TRAFFIC UPDATES AND TRAINING MATERIALS, ALL CURRENT PRACTICES. IT AUTHORIZES LOCAL RETENTION OF STILL IMAGES FOR SOCIAL TRAFFIC, UPDATES, TO ADD THAT AGAIN, WE DON’T TAKE STILL IMAGES FROM THESE CLOSER TO TV CAMERAS, OCCASIONALLY THEY WILL USE STILL IMAGES, AND POST ON A TWITTER FEED THAT SAYS THERE IS AN ACCIDENT, AND SHOW AN IMAGE LINGER ON TWITTER, IT ALLOWS THAT TO HAPPEN. DATA MINERALIZATION AND RETENTION, THERE IS A SECTION THAT CLARIFIES THESE ITEMS ARE THE ONLY PURPOSES FOR WHICH THE SYSTEM CAN BE USED. THE STREAMING FEED, CRITICAL VIDEO AND TRAFFIC ENGINEERING STUDIES. TRAINING MATERIALS INCLUDING SOME OF THE UPDATES. UPDATES TO THE SUBJECT OF TAFFIC ONLY AS WELL. IT ALSO REQUIRES APPROVAL FOR EACH INCIDENTS, RETAINING THAT FOR TEN YEARS, WHICH IS THE EXISTING CITY POLICY. WRITTEN APPROVAL IS REQUIRED FOR THE RECORDING OF STILL IMAGES, AND THE POTENTIAL POSTING ON SOCIAL MEDIA, ANNUALLY. AGAIN IT IS ALWAYS THE RECORD ART OF THIS CLOSED-CIRCUIT TV, FOR THE TRAFFIC AGENDA. THEY WOULD NEED APPROVAL TO RECORD IT, THEY CAN REVIEW LIKE IT APPROVAL, ON A MANUAL BASIS, TO TAKE STILL IMAGES, TO USE FOR SOCIAL MEDIA, SO EVERY TIME SOMEONE WANTS TO SNAP A PICTURE FOR TWITTER, THEY ARE EVIL TO GET APPROVAL. THAT’S ONCE PER YEAR UNDER THOSE GUIDELINES. OTHERWISE, A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS WITH WRITTEN APPROVAL. >>YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT AMENDMENT FIVE STILL. >>THAT’S CORRECT >>I’M TALKING ABOUT AMENDMENT SEVEN. >>GO WITH EIGHT AND NINE. WILL TAKE THAT.>>WE ARE LOOKING AT TRAINING, AND HANDLING OF DATA, MAKING SURE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE USING THIS CAN TAKE THOSE LIFESTREAM BROADCASTS TO BE CONSISTENT WITH THE CONVENTION WITH THE CONDENSED VERSION. I AM NOT AN EXPERT. IT IS PROBABLY APPROPRIATE TO CONFIRM WITH MY COLLEAGUES SO THAT THIS IS NOT MISINTERPRETED AT ALL. MAYBE THERE IS SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE CLARIFIED AND I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE ARE OPEN TO THAT. >>AS COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN DESCRIBED, DID YOU WANT TO SEE THIS? >>I WAS ANSWERING THE QUESTION FROM THE COUNCIL MEMBER. >>THIS IS WHY I POSED THIS AMENDMENT. I WILL JUST TAKE A VOTE, SINCE WE HAVE A BUSY DAY AHEAD OF US. CLARIFYING QUESTIONS. ALLOW ME TO COMMENT ON THIS SIDE OF THIS. LET ME TAKE YOUR QUESTIONS. >>I AM NOT SURE WHAT ORDER YOU WANTED TO GO TO, I DIDN’T WANT TO MISS THE OPPORTUNITY TO ASK SOME QUESTIONS HERE. THE ORIGINAL SPONSOR OF THE SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY ORDINANCE, I WANTED TO GET SOME CLARIFICATION ON THE PROPOSED AMENDMENT THIS QUESTION IS PROBABLY APPLICABLE TO ALL OF THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS, PARTICULARLY AS IT RELATES TO THAT CONDENSED VERSION. IN TERMS OF WHAT IS REPRESENTED ON PROPOSED AMENDMENT FIVE TO THIS COUNSEL BILL, IT IS ANYTHING, IS ANY OF THE SPECIFIC CHANGES THAT ARE ARTICULATED IN THIS AMENDMENT, ARE THEY NOT INCLUDED IN THE UNDERLYING SIR? >>WE REALIZE WE HAVE NOT DONE THE A POINT BY POINT AMENDMENT YET. >>MY UNDERSTANDING OF HOW THIS HAS BEEN DESCRIBED IS THAT THE CONDENSED VERSION IS INTENDED TO BE IN EFFECT AN EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF THE CONTENTS. DID I HEAR THE INTENT INCORRECTLY? COUNCIL MEMBER? >>THAT IS MY UNDERSTANDING AS WELL. >>ORDINARILY, IT EXECUTIVE SUMMARIES WOULD BE COMPLETELY 100% ALIGNED WITH THE CONTENT IN THE UNDERLYING DOCUMENT. NOW I’M HEARING THAT IS NOT THE CASE FROM COUNSEL AND FROM CENTRAL STAFF AND THERE MAY BE NEW REQUIREMENTS THAT ARE NOT ACTUALLY REFLECTED. >>THAT IS CORRECT. MY ATTEMPT HERE, IF I MAY, WAS TO FOCUS ON AMENDING THE SIX PAGE DOCUMENT WAS HUNDREDS OF PAGES FOR THE SAR. THERE WILL BE SIMILAR CHANGES WERE FIRED. AS THE COUNCIL PRESIDENT SAID, IF WE DO ADOPT ANY OF MY AMENDMENTS, WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO VOTE ON THIS, TO ATTACH, BECAUSE THAT WOULD REQUIRE SOME CHANGES. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THE DEPARTMENTS HAVE BEEN CLOSELY TRACKING PROPOSED CHANGES, AND I BELIEVE THEY HAVE AN AWARENESS OF WHAT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED. I’VE HEARD IT WOULD JUST TAKE A COUPLE DAYS TO MAKE THOSE CHANGES. BUT I BARELY HAD MY HEAD AROUND THE COMPLEXITY OF THE SIX PAGE DOCUMENT. I CAN PERSONALLY SPEAK TO THE LAXITY OF THE MULTIPAGE UNIT. >>I THINK SETTING ASIDE THE COMPLEXITIES OF EACH DOCUMENT, MY LINE OF QUESTIONING HIS COME FROM THIS, I’M CONCERNED THAT WE ARE USING THE CONDENSED VERSION THAT WAS NOT ENVISIONED OR IMAGINED, OR EVEN ARTICULATED IN THIS TECHNOLOGY ORDINANCE, WE ARE USING THIS ADDITIONAL TOOL TO AMEND THE UNDERLYING ISSUE, CREATING SOME POTENTIAL CONFLICTS BETWEEN THE CONDENSED VERSION AND THE UNDERLYING VERSION, SO I’M HEARING NOW THAT IT IS ACTUALLY TRUE AND WE ARE CREATING CONFLICT THROUGH THE ADOPTION OF THESE AMENDMENTS, WITH THE BILLING DOCUMENTS IF YOU>>MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT WE ARE PREPARED TO RECONCILE THOSE. RESULT IN A WEEK SILICON FLICKED GO AWAY. >>I UNDERSTAND AND APPRECIATE THAT WE ARE EFFECTIVELY CREATING A COUPLE DIFFERENT TOOLS AND MULTIPLE BITES AT THE APPLE TO MODIFY IT. AND THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE THE UNDER BRYANT UNDERLYING DOCUMENT THAT IS LEGALLY BINDING. THAT AFFECT READABILITY, SO IF SOMEBODY WANTED TO REVIEW IT AND CAN EASILY IDENTIFY THE OBLIGATIONS, DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES. AND TO MAKE AN EXECUTIVE SUMMARY, WHICH COULD BE HUNDREDS OF PLATE PAGES, DEPENDING ON THE TECHNOLOGY. I AM HAVING DIFFICULTY RECONCILING YOUR INTENT AS DESCRIBED. IT APPEARS TO BE MORE TECHNICAL IN NATURE. IT IS NOT EXTREMELY SUBSTANTIVE IN NATURE AND TERMS OF MEETING THE NEEDS HERE. INCLUDING MAKING A MORE READABLE DOCUMENT UNDERLYING AND POST THAT PUBLICLY SO PEOPLE UNDERSTAND FIRSTHAND RULES OF THE GAME AS IT RELATES TO TECHNOLOGY THAT THEY ARE USING, AS OPPOSED TO MAKING SUBSTANTIVE CHANGES. >>YOUR PREFERENCE WOULD HAVE BEEN FOR ME TO BE MAKING AMENDMENTS TO THE DOCUMENT AT THIS POINT.>>IT WAS SIMPLY PULLING LANGUAGE TO SIMPLIFY THIS. IT MAY HAVE BEEN APPROPRIATE FOR THIS. I CHOSE NOT TO GO INTO IT AND AMENDED. IF THAT IS THE FUTURE OF HOW THE COUNCIL SHOULD BE WEIGHING IN ON AMENDING THIS TECHNOLOGY AS IT GOES THROUGH THAT, I THINK IT IS SOMETHING FOR US TO THINK THROUGH.>>I THINK AGAIN THIS IS THE FIRST TECHNOLOGY OUT OF DOZEN THAT ANY CITY COUNCIL, IF NOT THIS ONE, WILL HAVE TO CONSIDER AND SET A PRECEDENT IN TERMS OF SETTING UP THE PROCESS AND EVALUATING THESE COMPLEX TECHNOLOGIES AND POLICY ISSUES. IN MY MIND, AND IN MY UNDERSTANDING, THESE ARE LEGALLY BINDING DOCUMENTS. THEY ARE INCORPORATED INTO THE ORDINANCE AT THIS POINT I THINK THE APPROPRIATE PLACE TO MAKE THESE AMENDMENTS OR UNDERLYING. IF WE ARE TRULY INTERESTED IN MAKING THOSE ACCESSIBLE AND DIGESTIBLE, UNDERSTANDABLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC, NEED TO IMPOSE THAT REQUIREMENT ON THE AGENCIES UTILIZING THOSE TECHNOLOGIES TO DO SO, RATHER THAN USING CONDENSED EXECUTIVE SUMMARIES AS THE PLACE TO DO A MANDATORY WORK UNDERLYING, WHICH LEADS ME TO MY LAST QUESTION, ARE THE CONDENSED ONES ALSO INCORPORATED INTO THE ORDINANCE? OR ARE THEY JUST SEPARATE? >>THESE WOULD BE ATTACHED TO THE ORDINANCE AND INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE. >>SO NOW I HAD TO TRACK COMPLIANCE >>THAT IS CORRECT. IF ANY OF THESE AMENDMENTS PASSED TODAY, YOU WOULD NOT VOTE ON THE BILL. HE WOULD GIVE A WEEK OR SO TO THE DEPARTMENT TO BE ABLE TO BRING THOSE THINGS INTO MANY AND THEN NEXT WEEK YOU COULD PASS IT ALL OF THEM SECRET NICE. >>I THINK I HAVE ARTICULATED MY CONCERNS SO FAR AND I THINK WE HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SET UP A PROCESS THAT IS CLEAN AND CRISP HERE. I AM CONCERNED THAT WE ARE GOING TO BE CREATING PARALLEL DOCUMENTS THAT IN THE FUTURE COULD BE READ IN CONFLICT. THOSE OUT OF COMPLIANCE WITH THE ORDINANCE EVEN THOUGH IT HAD FULL GOOD FAITH INTENT TO TECHNOLOGY BASED ON THE VERSION THAT THERE ARE NO DOCUMENTS THAT MAY BE SIMILAR BUT MAYBE NOT EXACT. I AM STRUGGLING WITH THAT REALITY IF THESE IMMIGRANTS WERE TO PASS TODAY.>>THERE ARE SOME GREAT ISSUES BEING RAISED. THESE ISSUES WERE RAISED AND THE SERVER WAS A 141 PAGE DOCUMENT. THE TOOLKIT OPPONENT ENGAGEMENT IN THE PUBLIC PROCESS COMPONENT. AND THE OPPONENT QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS EMPLOYEES OF THE DEPARTMENT MISUSE THE TECHNOLOGY. WHAT HAPPENS TO UNDERREPRESENTED COMMUNITIES THEY ARE UNFAIRLY TARGETED OR THERE IS THE SPIRIT IMPACT? AND THE DENTIST ANALYSIS. YOU CAN SEPARATE THIS LEGISLATION, AND I ASKED IF THERE WERE ANY INCONSISTENCIES. ONE SUPERSEDES THE OTHER. AND LANGUAGE BE IMPROVED? OF COURSE. IT CAN ALWAYS BE IMPROVED. IT IS PERTINENT AS A TRAFFIC CARE TECHNOLOGY. WE’VE BEEN USING THIS FOR 19 YEARS AND WE DO NOT WORD. ONE PERSON TESTIFIED ABOUT HOW THERE IS SOME RECORDING THE STAFF ARE TRAINED, LICENSE PLATES, WE SHARE THE INFORMATION WITH ANOTHER AGENCY. THERE IS A TRAFFIC STUDY AS THESE ARE CONDITIONS THAT WE MUST COMPLY WITH. RIGHT OF ACTION IS UNPRECEDENTED. I SEE THESE AS UNNECESSARY AGAIN, LATE. I WAS ASKED TO TAKE A VOTE ON AMENDMENT NUMBER FIVE COUNCILMEMBER BRANNAN, DID YOU WANT TO SAY ANYTHING? WE WERE TALKING ABOUT AMENDMENT NUMBER FIVE AT THIS POINT. >>THIS WAS THE APPROPRIATE PROCESS TO DO IT. THERE ARE SOME CONCERNS ABOUT THE STRATEGY THAT I USE. I WAS JUST TRYING TO GET MY POLICY THINGS IN THERE. >>I APPRECIATE THE APOLOGY. I’M SURE YOU ARE CARRYING IT FOR SOMEBODY. AND TALK ABOUT YOUR PROCESS TO GET US READY TO VOTE OR WE REVISITING ISSUES FROM EARLIER IN THE PROCESS? >>MANY OF THEM, YES. >>I DO THINK THAT THESE ARE BRINGING THEM LANGUAGE FROM OTHERS, AND ADD VALUE. THE RECORDING MAY HAVE BEEN DISCUSSED. I FEEL THERE SHOULD BE A WRITTEN RECORD OF NATURALLY SAVED. I SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT, WE SHOULD GET CLARITY FOR HOW YOU MAKE THAT DECK I DON’T THINK THESE ARE MEANT TO COME TO THE COUNCIL, I THINK THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO RUN SOME POLICY DECISIONS AND THOSE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE PIECES THAT I’M TRYING TO GO FOR IN THIS PIECE.>>COUNCIL MEMBER? >>THIS RELATES THIS LINE OF WORK, I’M CONCERNED ABOUT THE ORDER WE SHOULD DO THINGS IN.>>WE TALKED ABOUT THESE AMENDMENTS IN CIVIL. THE GOAL WAS TO ADDRESS A CONCERN THAT THESE WERE OPENING UP THIS TECHNOLOGY IN WAYS THAT WEREN’T HAVING BEFORE. LOGICALLY IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IF THAT WAS THE CASE, WE WOULDN’T NEED TO GO BACK AND AMEND THESE. THE AMENDMENTS WOULD SIMPLY BE RESTATED IN A CONDENSED FORM. IF THE GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE THAT SEIZURES DO NOT BROADEN THE ABILITY TO USE THE CCTV, THAT’S WHAT MY UNDERSTANDING WAS. GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE THAT THE ABILITY TO USE THIS CAMERAS IS NOT BROADEN BEYOND WHAT WAS CONTEMPLATED. I’M NOT SURE THAT I UNDERSTAND WHY AFTER PASSING THIS AMENDMENT WE WOULD NEED TO GO BACK. >>I THINK THERE ARE A COUPLE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES ON THIS, THIS IS NEW AND WE HAVE NOT BEEN THROUGH THE PROCESS FOR THERE ARE A LOT OF FOLKS TRYING TO ENVISION HOW THIS HAPPENED I’VE HEARD PEOPLE ARGUE THAT IT IS CONDENSED, SO IT SUMMARIZES THINGS. FORCE IF SOMEONE WERE TO JUST READ THAT, IT MAY NOT HAVE THE LEVEL OF DETAIL. TO ADD MORE DETAIL TO THIS, FOR INSTANCE. DOCUMENT USING FACIAL RECOGNITION SOFTWARE, SPOKEN OF ELSEWHERE, BUT THERE IS A SENSE OF FEAR THAT WITHOUT IT, IT FEELS LIKE THIS IS BROUGHT OR OPENING BACK UP TO THE CONCERN THAT YOU HAD THERE ARE OTHER PLACES LIKE I MENTIONED, WITH WRITTEN APPROVAL. A SHIFT IN THE DOCUMENT WOULD NEED TO GET RECONCILED AND THAT IS INTENTIONAL I’M CHOOSING THE PATH THAT I THOUGHT WOULD BE GOING ON HERE A PROTOCOL FOR HOW WE SHOULD AMEND THIS IS A COUNSEL, WE ARE LIVING THROUGH THAT. >>COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO? I WAS JUST GOING TO CALL THE QUESTION. >>WE HAVE A REQUEST TO GET OUT THE OTHER 29 ITEMS ON THE SIMULATOR>>DO I STILL GET TO SPEAK? THAT WOULD BE AMAZING>>I WILL GO VERY BRIEFLY. I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR YOUR WORK TO MAKE SURE ALL OF THESE ISSUES WERE RAISED. PUTTING TOGETHER THE MATRIX TODAY, A LOT OF WORK HAS GONE INTO THIS. AND ALSO, FOLKS AT THE ACLU THAT CROSSWALK WAS VERY HELPFUL TO ME. THURSDAY AND FRIDAY OF THE LAST WEEK I LOOKED THROUGH WHAT ITEM ARE LEGALLY OKAY AND WHAT ITEMS ARE POTENTIALLY CHALLENGING BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO ADMIT TO CLEMENT. AND I TRY TO IDENTIFY HARMONY BETWEEN WHAT WAS LEGALLY OKAY AND WHAT COULD BE IMPLEMENT IT, AND SUPPORT SOME OF THOSE EFFORTS. IN THIS, SPECIFICALLY, THERE ARE SOME ITEMS THAT WE DISCUSSED COMMITTEE. I ADMIT THEY ARE IMPORTANT FOR CLARIFYING INTENT HERE. I AGREE THAT MAYBE THERE IS SOME CONFUSION ABOUT WHERE IT SHOULD BE CLARIFIED AND HARMONIZED. THERE IS NO CONFUSION THERE IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THAT, WHILE TRACKING TRAFFIC MAY ONLY BY THE CITY TO DO THINGS THAT WE WOULD NEVER SUPPORT ONE GOOD EXAMPLE THAT I GAVE, THE SEATTLE DEPARTMENT HAD WORKED TO PROVIDE SAFE AREAS FOR PEOPLE TO HAVE A ONE-DAY STRIKE ON BROADWAY, TO GO THAT WAS FROM IMPORTANT EFFORTS, WORKERS SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO THAT. I WOULD HATE TO HAVE THAT INFORMATION. I WOULD HATE THAT DISPLAYED ON A MONITOR AND THEN HAVE EMPLOYER RECORD THAT AND THEN USE THAT TO MAKE WORKERS, WHO WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE PROTECTED THE CITY. THIS AMENDMENT WAS REALLY AND TREATING GREATER HARMONY, AND WE CAN CONTINUE TO WORK ON IT. MY INTENT WAS TO DEBATE THAT CLARITY. IT MAY NOT BE LEGALLY REQUIRED BUT IT WAS HELPFUL TO ARTICULATE THE TRUE INTENT OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES, SO THERE IS NO AMBIGUITY. WE APPRECIATE YOUR ONGOING ENTERTAINMENT OF THIS CONVERSATION. THAT’S WHY I WAS GOING TO BE SUPPORTIVE. >>THANK YOU FOR THE DISCUSSION VOTING ON JUST AMENDMENT NUMBER FIVE. JUST TO BE CLEAR. COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN HAS MADE THE MOTION.>>MOVED AND SECONDED. >>THIS IS DESCRIBED ON THE SALMON COLORED SHEET >>I’M GOING TO DO THIS. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, RAISE YOUR HAND. >>ONE, TWO >>ALL THOSE OPPOSED, SAY NO AND RAISE YOUR HAND ANYBODY ELSE? THAT ONE FAILS. MOVED TO AMENDMENT NUMBER FOUR. I’M SORRY, LET’S GO BACKWARDS, BRUCE. AMENDMENT NUMBER SIX. THAT IS SALMON COLORED AS WELL. >>NOT EVERYONE PRINTED ON THE SAME COLORED PAGE. I WILL TRY TO STREAMLINE THIS SIMILAR THEME AND SET OF THEM IN ITS IS THE ONE THAT WE JUST TURNED DOWN I WILL WALK THROUGH THIS REALLY QUICKLY, IF THAT IS OKAY THERE ARE SIX ITEMS TO DISCUSS. ONE LOOKS AT PURPOSE AND USES OF LICENSE PLATE DATA AND TRAVEL TIME INFORMATION. IT RESTRICTS THE USE OF ALL OF THE DATA, AND LICENSE PLATE NUMBERS. IT PROHIBITS DATA COLLECTION BY THE LICENSE PLATE READER SYSTEM. IT MAKES EXPLICIT THAT WASHED OUT DOES NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THOSE SYSTEMS, IT ALSO RESTRICTS SHARING OF DATA FOR TRAVEL TIME PURCHASES AND PURPOSES. >>THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER. I WILL JUST RESPOND. THE REASON I AM NOT SUPPORTING THIS AMENDMENT, IT’S FOR MUCH THE SAME REASON I TALKED ABOUT EARLIER IN WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH, IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND. WE ARE NEVER IN POSITION, THE TECHNOLOGY BY ITS VERY NATURE DOES NOT CAPTURE ALL OF THIS. IT CAPTURES BETWEEN FIVE AND 10%. THE LOOK TO RAISE THE PLATE NUMBER, AS A TIMESTAMP, COMPARING THAT AND MATCHING IT TO GET THE REPORTS THAT ARE GENERATED IN LOOKING AT TRAVEL TIMES. THE DEPARTMENT MADE IT CRYSTAL CLEAR. THE TECHNOLOGY CANNOT BE USED FOR ENFORCEMENT. WE DO NOT KEEP THIS DATA, WE ARE TRYING TO GET TRAFFIC REPORTS FROM IT. WE BELIEVE THE MOST AMENDMENT BY THE MAKER IS ACTED ADEQUATELY CAPTURED. IT WAS THOROUGHLY EXAMINED EARLIER IN THE PROCESS. ANY OTHER DISCUSSION ON THE AMENDMENT? ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? OKAY. COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALES? >>I WANTED TO EARN THE SAME LINE OF QUESTIONING AHEAD OF THAT IN THE FIRST PLACE. IS THIS EFFECTIVELY ATTEMPTING TO AMEND THIS? IS THIS CARBON COPY? NOTHING NEW HERE, AS FOR AS DUTIES AND OBLIGATIONS. >>THIS ISSUE IS ADDRESSED IN BOTH AND IT IS AN ISSUE WHERE THE DEPARTMENT HAS OUTLINED THE PRACTICE, ABOUT THE DATA THAT THEY CAPTURE, THEY SAY THAT THEY CAPTURE RAW DATA TO INCLUDE A STATION IDENTIFIER, PLATE STREAM, AND CONFIDENCE FACTOR. MOST OF THOSE THINGS, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE. THE AMENDMENT WOULD SAY THAT THEY COULD CAPTURE THOSE THINGS AND ONLY THOSE THINGS. SO IF THERE WAS ANOTHER PIECE OF DATA THAT THEY WANTED TO CAPTURE, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE BROUGHT FOR YOU ALL. THAT WOULD THE CASE ANYWAYS BECAUSE OF THE UNDERLYING SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCE. THERE IS ANY SORT OF CHANGE, IT WOULD HAVE TO COME BEFORE YOU. >>GOING OUTSIDE OF WHAT YOU JUST DESCRIBED, THAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED A MATERIAL CHANGE THAT WOULD REQUIRE THEM TO COME BACK TO THE CITY COUNCIL TO AMEND >>THAT IS CORRECT. THIS LANGUAGE IS HELPFUL FOR CLARIFICATION AND READING IT THE UNDERLYING ORDINANCE PROTECTS AGAINST THIS ANYWAY. >>OKAY, NO NEED TO AMEND THAT IS >>IT USES THE LANGUAGE ONLY. AS I HAVE SAID BEFORE, IF THERE WERE ANY OTHER DATA CAPTURED SAID WHAT WE HAVE LISTED, IT WOULD HAVE TO, THIS IS NOT LEGALLY NECESSARY>>UNDERSTOOD. YOU ARE SAYING THIS IS NOT LEGALLY NECESSARY. PASSING OF THIS AMENDMENT REQUIRE US TO GO BACK AND AMEND THAT? >>I THINK THE AGENCY WOULD STILL WANT IT IN HARMONY. TAKE THAT LANGUAGE AND PUT IT IN, DOESN’T REQUIRE IT? I WOULD HAVE TO ASK THE ATTORNEYS ABOUT THAT.>>MOTION TO AMEND NUMBER SIX. VERSION NUMBER TWO. LET US DISCUSS IT. AMEND NUMBER SIX MOVED AND SECONDED. ALTHOUGH SUPPOSED, RAISE YOUR HAND. AMENDMENT NUMBER SEVEN. NUMBER SEVEN A SINGLE AS IT RELATES TO THE POLICY. AT THE TOP IT HAS TODAY’S DATE BY, IT’S IS VERSION TWO, THIS IS ABOUT THE LICENSE PLATE READER DATA. IT MAKES IT EXPLICIT, THAT IT WOULD NOT BE MADE AVAILABLE IN RESPONSE TO CIVIL CRIMINAL ENFORCEMENT PURPOSES EXCEPT BY JUDICIAL WARRANT. TO ME, THE LANGUAGE THAT YOU SAW EARLIER TODAY WAS MORE BROAD I DON’T HAVE IT IN FRONT OF ME. EXCEPT AS PROHIBITED BY LAW, WITHOUT THE TECHNICAL REALITY, DATA IS BEING ELECTED BY PEOPLE WHO FOR THE MOST PART ARE NOT LAWYERS. PEOPLE MIGHT SAY I NEED YOU TO HAND THIS OVER. HOW ARE THEY GOING TO INTERPRET IT? WE DON’T ALLOW THAT IN CASES WHERE WE DON’T WANT IT TO HAPPEN. ACKNOWLEDGING THE HYPOTHETICAL NATURE OF THESE SCENARIOS, IT IS HARD TO WALK DOWN THOSE HYPOTHETICALS. AT THE SAME TIME, THERE ARE ENOUGH EXAMPLES IN TODAY’S WORLD WHERE THESE TYPES OF TRANSACTIONS ARE HAPPENING AND IT MAY BE THE CASE WHERE THERE IS AN EMPLOYEE SOMEWHERE FEELS STRONGLY AND THIS GIVES YOU A LITTLE COVER TO DO THAT. SO AGAIN, THIS IS THE LANGUAGE THAT IS NARROWLY TAILORED AND CAN BE SHARED OR USED FOR CIVIL AND FOR LOT WAS PURPOSES.>>I SEE THIS AS MORE OF AN AMENDMENT ISSUE THAT WOULD REQUIRE INFORMATION GATHERED THROUGH TECHNOLOGIES APPROVED BY THE SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY ORDINANCE, WE HAD THE ORIGINAL DRAFTING ORDINANCE ARE ON THIS BURDEN OF PROOF. AND LOOKING AT WHERE THAT DATA SHOULD ORIGINALLY BE SUPPORTED. I’M NOT GOING TO SUPPORT THIS. I SEE IT AS GOING BACK INTO THE TECHNOLOGY ORDINANCE AND ATTEMPTING TO AMEND THE UNDERLYING WARRANT REQUIREMENTS AROUND WHEN AGENCIES ARE INTENDED TO SHARE INFORMATION THAT MAY HAVE BEEN CAPTURED WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT. LOOKING AT THIS PARTICULAR LANGUAGE, THAT IS A DIFFERENT POLICY ORDINANCE. CHANGING OBLIGATION, WE SHOULD HAVE THAT CONVERSATION. >>I WANT TO GO BACK TO THE APOLOGY AGAIN. I UNDERSTAND THE HYPOTHETICAL CONCERN. WE MAKE IT VERY CLEAR, WE DON’T USE IT FOR ENFORCEMENT, IT IS NEVER USED FOR ENFORCEMENT WE ARE NOT IN POSSESSION OF THE IMAGES. WE TRANSFER 10% WITH SOME COMPETENT COMPETENCY LEVELS. THAT A PERMIT HAS STATED THE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE DOCUMENTS. AND THE TECHNOLOGY. COUNCIL MEMBER, CLOSING WORDS? >>THE CITY WILL NOT BE USING THIS ENFORCEMENT. THIS WILL BE HANDED OVER TO SOMEONE ELSE TO USE FOR CIVIL OR CRIMINAL ENFORCEMENT. THAT IS A GOOD DISTINCTION. >>IT IS A GOOD DISTINCTION. I DON’T KNOW IF THAT IS THE TYPE OF LIABILITY THAT WE WANT TO ASSUME IN THE ORDINANCE. IT WILL BE MOVED. DID YOU WANT TO SAY SOMETHING? >>I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR WHAT THE COUNCIL MEMBER HAS TO SAY YOU LOOKING AT THE UNDERLYING SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCE, I WOULD LIKE TO DEFER TO THE SPONSOR OF THE BILL AND HERE HER CONCERNS. >>I COULD ADD TO THAT. ANOTHER POLICY AND DECISION DISCUSSION POINT WAS THE QUESTION AROUND WHETHER OR NOT WE SHOULD WILL WIRE THIRD OR OUTSIDE PARTIES TO COMPLY WITH THE RESTRICTIONS AND THE REQUIREMENT AND MANDATES A SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY ORDINANCE IS. IN THE DEBATE AROUND THAT PARTICULAR QUESTION, THIS COUNCIL DECIDED TO ONLY MAKE SURE THAT THOSE RULES ARE APPLYING TO WHAT WE CONTROL AND HOW WE CAN USE THE DATA. THERE ARE SOME REASONABLE SITUATIONS. LARGELY WE HEARD FROM THE SEATTLE POLICE DEPARTMENT AND OTHER AGENT FEES, WHERE WE REALLY LEGITIMATE JUDICIAL WARRANTS FOR PURPOSES WHERE THE AGENCIES MAY BE WORKING WITH THAT DATA OR INFORMATION. WHAT DO WE HAVE IN OUR POSSESSION? WHAT ARE THE OBLIGATIONS UNDER CONSTITUTIONAL LAW? I’M HAPPY TO HAVE THIS CONVERSATION ABOUT CHANGING THE THRESHOLD FOR THAT POTENTIAL POLICY. I FUNDAMENTALLY SEE THE SIZE AND ATTEMPT TO RESURRECT THE CONVERSATION, WHICH FUNDAMENTALLY WOULD HAVE THE EFFECT ON MY MIND OF MODIFYING THE BASE ORDINANCE OF THE SURVEILLANCE TO ELEGY, WHICH HAD ALREADY DECIDED UNDER WHICH CIRCUMSTANCES THE CITY OF SEATTLE WOULD BE REQUIRED TO RESPOND TO A JUDICIAL WARRANT, IF WE WERE IN POSSESSION OF DATA OR INFORMATION THAT WAS GATHERED AS A RESULT OF SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY THAT WE HAD BEEN UTILIZING, AND WAS APPROPRIATELY APPROVED. I AM JUST FLOGGING MY CONCERNS THAT THIS IS GOING MUCH FURTHER THAN THE MENDING. BUT ALSO AMENDING THE UNDERLYING ORDINANCE. THAT MAY BE SOMETHING THAT WE WANT TO HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT AGAIN. I DON’T THINK IT IS APPROPRIATE TO HAVE THAT CONVERSATION IN THE CONTEXT OF SOMETHING SPECIFIC TO ONE TYPE OF TECHNOLOGY BECAUSE I THINK THE COMPLICATIONS ARE MUCH BROADER. >>THE AMENDMENT, COUNCIL MEMBER, O’BRIEN, WILL YOU MOVE AMENDMENT NUMBER SEVEN? >>I WILL MOVE AMEND NUMBER SEVEN, DATED TODAY, THIS IS VERSION NUMBER TWO. IT HAS BEEN MOVED AND SECONDED. AMENDMENT NUMBER SEVEN HAS BEEN MOVED AND SECONDED. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR? ALL THOSE OPPOSED? LET’S GO TO NUMBER EIGHT. >>THIS ONE ALSO RELATES TO THE LICENSE PLATE READER TECHNOLOGY AND THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN START AND WASHED AND THE STATE AND CITY DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION. WE CAN DESCRIBE HOW THE TECHNOLOGY WORKS AND WHAT IS CAPTURED CURRENTLY THERE IS NOT A WRITTEN REQUIREMENT. NO WRITTEN AGREEMENT, BUT THE UNDERLYING RING WOULD REQUIRE THAT. THIS WOULD REQUIRE THAT WITHIN SIX MONTHS, THERE NEEDS TO BE A WRITTEN REQUIREMENT, IT A VOCAL AGREEMENT AS TO HOW THAT DATA IS SHARED. SPECIFICALLY, ON THINGS THAT WOULD NEED TO BE HELD TO THE SAME REQUIREMENT AND RESTRICTIONS SET FORTH IN THE POLICIES. I’M GOING TO PULL IT THROUGH THE LANGUAGE REALLY QUICK. I WANT TO ARTICULATE WHY THIS IS PARTICULARLY. WE ARE COLLECTING SOME DATA. I BELIEVE THE REASONS ARE LEGITIMATE TO STUDY TRAVEL TIMES AND SERVING THE PUBLIC WELL. THEY DO HAVE POTENTIAL TO BE MISUSED. WE ARE COLLECTING PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION. POLICIES SHOW THAT DATA IS DELETED ALMOST IMMEDIATELY WHEN WE HAND THAT DATA OFF TO A PARTY NOT BOUND BY THE SAME CONDITIONS, THERE IS A FEAR THAT PEOPLE WILL USE THAT FOR OTHER PURPOSES OR HANDED OVER TO ANOTHER AGENCY REQUESTING FOR OTHER OFFICES. THIS IS AT HEART OF THE SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCE. THINGS THAT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE FOR US TO STRUGGLE WITH AS A COUNSEL. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT COULD PLAY OUT. WE COULD COME TO AN AGREEMENT OF DATA SHARING THAT HOLDS THEM TO THE SAME STANDINGS WE CAN CONTINUE TO GET THE INFORMATION. IT MAY BE THAT THEY COME BACK TO US AND SAY WE ARE UNABLE TO REACH AN AGREEMENT. MAYBE THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO BE HELD TO THE SAME STANDARDS. AT THIS POINT, IT WOULD BE REQUIRED THAT WE NO LONGER HAVE THAT TRAVEL TIME INFORMATION. AS FAR AS I KNOW, WITH THE TECHNOLOGY, THE ONLY WAY WE CAN GET THAT INFORMATION IS BY SHARING THE DATA. THAT IS A LEGITIMATE POLICY QUESTION THAT THIS COUNCIL CAN STRUGGLE WITH HEY, WE CAN ONLY GET THIS IN THE AGREEMENT, WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO AMEND THE – – AMEND THIS, IT IS NOT WORTH COLLECTING WITHOUT ASSURANCES. THIS MIGHT BE USED AGAINST OUR WILL, FOR DATA FOR THINGS SUCH AS ICE. SO I WILL STOP THERE THIS IS THE TYPE OF THING THAT IS APPROPRIATE FOR US TO BE DOING. THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH WE WANT TO SHARE IT WITH OTHER PARTIES. WE WILL SEE WHAT THE FUTURE COUNSEL MAY DECIDE I THINK IT IS APPROPRIATE TO SAY THAT THEY SHOULD BE ASKED TO WORK ON THAT AGREEMENT.>>THE REASON I DON’T SUPPORT THIS AMENDMENT FIRST, THERE HAVE BEEN ISSUES RAISED. I THINK THEY FLAGGED THIS ONE. I THINK AS A CITY, IF WE CHOOSE NOT TO USE THE LPR, WE CAN STOP USING IT. THIS IS WHERE WE ARE A RECENT AND OF THE INFORMATION WE ARE GETTING HAVE USED IT SINCE 2007 WE ARE GETTING GOOD DATA FOR TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT, WHICH IS THE PURPOSE OF THE LPR. THE CHANCES OF US GETTING WASHED OUT TO AGREE ARE SLIM TO NONE. WE WOULD BE FOOLING OURSELVES IF WE THINK THAT WE COULD ACHIEVE THAT. THERE IS ANOTHER AVENUE TO GET THERE, TO SET A RESOLUTION AND NEGOTIATE AND HAVE OUR DEPARTMENT WORK WITH THEM TO PUT IN THE RIGHT SAFEGUARDS. I THINK TO REQUIRE IT NOW, THIS PROCESS, IT IS BURDENSOME AND IMPRACTICAL. I THINK WE SHOULD TRY TO GET THROUGH ANOTHER WAY, I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THEM GUARDED AS MUCH AS WE ARE. OTHERWISE WE ARE IN VIOLATION OF ORDINANCE. >>I WANT TO GO BACK IN MY TIME MACHINE AGAIN TO WHEN WE FIRST HAD A DEBATE AROUND THE SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY ORDINANCE. THIS WAS ALSO ANOTHER POLICY POINT THAT WAS DEBATED, DISCUSSED, AND ULTIMATELY REJECTED BY THE CITY COUNCIL WHEN WE APPROVED THE SURVEILLANCE TECHNOLOGY ORDINANCE. THERE WAS A STRONG INTEREST IN THE OVERARCHING PRINCIPLES OF THIS ORDINANCE THAT WHOEVER WE DO BUSINESS WITH SIGN A CONTRACT AND AGREEMENT, AGREEING TO COMPLY WITH OUR ORDINANCE. WE HAD A VERY LONG DEBATE AND DISCUSSION ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT IT WAS PRACTICAL AS A MATTER OF LESSEE, OR APPROPRIATE FOR US TO IMPOSE CITY LAW, IN SOME CASES, UP TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OR TO THE STATE, AND WHETHER OR NOT WE HAD THE LEGAL STANDING TO MAKE THAT ENFORCEABLE. IN THAT CONVERSATION, IT WAS SEPARATE FROM WHETHER OR NOT IT WAS EVEN TACTICAL TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THAT KIND OF CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH EVERYTHING WE ARE DEALING WITH. AGAIN DURING THE DEBATE WE DETERMINED THAT WAS NOT THE DIRECTION THAT WE WANTED TO HEAD. WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THEY WOULD TAKE CARE OF ANY POTENTIAL CONCERNS RELATED TO THE TYPE OF INFORMATION THAT WE WERE CAPTIONING THAT MIGHT CAUSE PRIVACY CONCERN. AND WE NEED TO MAKE SURE RESTRICTIONS WERE IN PLACE IN ORDER TO COMPLY FULLY WITH OUR OWN ORDINANCE. SIMILAR TO I THINK THE WAY THAT WE LOOK AT INFORMATION THAT WE GATHER AS IT RELATES TO ICE ENFORCEMENT. WE CAN BE COMPELLED TO HAND OVER WHAT WE ACTUALLY COLLECT AND WE NEED TO BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT WE ARE GLAD, KNOWING THAT FEDERAL AND STATE AGENCIES, EVEN UNDER THIS RUBRIC, WILL BE ABLE TO STILL HAVE OTHER PUBLIC RECORDS REQUESTS TOOLS TO GET THAT INFORMATION FROM US. I’VE SEEN THIS AMENDMENT AS OPENING THE DOOR AGAIN TO THE POLICY QUESTION THAT WE HAD UNDERLYING ORDINANCE DEBATE AROUND WHETHER OR NOT WE WERE GOING TO IMPOSE AN OBLIGATION TO COMPLY WITH THE TECHNOLOGY ORDINANCE BEFORE WE AGREED TO DO THIS WITH THEM AS MEMORIALIZED IN THE AGREEMENT THAT WAS SEPARATE AND APART FROM THE CONDENSED VERSION. I THINK IT WILL RESULT IN A SITUATION WHERE WE REGIONAL EFFORTS WITH ANY THAT WE WOULD NOT HAVE A BLANKET REQUIREMENT. FOR ME, AT LEAST, IT DID NOT INCLUDE THE CASE BY CASE BASIS. IT IS NECESSARY TO SHARE WITH THIRD PARTIES THAT WE ARE CONSIDERING WHAT REQUIREMENTS WE PUT INTO THAT DATA, WHEN IT GOES OUT THE DOOR AND WE LOSE ALL CONTROL OF IT. THIS IS ONE WHERE I THINK THIS AMENDMENT SETS UP THE POSSIBILITY, WHICH I THINK IS REAL, TO REACH AN AGREEMENT, WE DELETE THE DATA AS SOON AS WE PROCESS IT AND VENDORS DO THE SAME THING. WE HAVE TO KEEP MOVING FORWARD. IF WE ARE UNABLE TO DO THAT, WE HAVE TO UNDERSTAND WHY THEY ARE UNABLE TO DO IT. KEEP THAT AND GIVE IT TO SOMEBODY, OR IS IT TECHNICALLY NOT FEASIBLE AND THAT’S THE REASON WE NEED TO DO IT? AT THAT POINT, THEY CAN COME BACK TO THE COUNCIL AND DECIDE ON THE POLICY AND LOOK AT THE INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF TRAFFIC. IS THE TRADE-OFF NOT WORTH IT ANYMORE IF WE DON’T HAVE CONTROL OF THE DATA? I FEEL STRONGLY THAT THIS IS AN APPROPRIATE PLACE TO ADD A THIRD 30 REQUIREMENT. THIS SAYS WITHOUT THIS AGREEMENT, AFTER SIX MONTHS, WE HAVE TO STOP COLLECTING THE DATA OBVIOUSLY THE PARTY IS COMING BACK, SAYING WE THINK IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT, HERE IS WHAT WE ARE ABLE TO AGREE TO, I THINK YOU SHOULD INDICATE TO THE PUBLIC THAT WE ARE COLLECTING IT. WITHOUT THIS, I FEAR WHAT I HAVE TO TELL CONSTITUENTS IS THAT WE COLLECT THIS DATA AND WE HAVE STRICT CONTROLS ON WHAT WE CAN DO WITH THAT, BUT WE ARE GOING TO ANOTHER AGENCY, AND WE ARE GIVING THEM CONTROL OF WHAT THEY DO WITH IT. WE DON’T HAVE THE CONTROL. THAT HAS SOME CONCERNS FOR ME. >>YOU WANT TO MAKE THE MOTION? COUNCIL MEMBER? >>DOES THE CURRENT LANGUAGE NOT STILL REQUIRE THAT THIRD- PARTY AGREEMENT? IT SIMPLY DOES NOT SAY IT, THAT THE THIRD-PARTY AGREEMENT IS THE SAME RESTRICTION AND REQUIREMENT? THERE IS STILL THAT EXPECTATION. >>THE UNDERLYING PART IS NOT THE AMENDMENT. THAT WAS MY AMENDMENT TO THE NOON AMENDMENT. WE BELIEVE THIS LANGUAGE IS ALL NEW. >>YOU ARE RIGHT, COUNCIL MEMBER. I’M SORRY. THE LANGUAGE IN THE CASE NOW, THEY MUST HAVE A WRITTEN AGREEMENT PERTAINING TO SHARING THE DATA. THIS CAN OCCUR IN OTHER AREAS AS WELL THE DATA IS TO BE USED ONLY FOR TRAFFIC PURPOSES. THAT IS ALREADY UNDERWAY. IF THEY CAME BACK AND SAID THEY THINK THE DATA MIGHT BE USED FOR SOMETHING ELSE, THEY WOULD BE OBLIGATED UNDER THE SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCE TO COME BACK TO THE COUNCIL. THE DIFFICULT PART ABOUT THIS AMENDMENT, OUT WITH THE CITY OF SEATTLE ENFORCE AN AGREEMENT? >>WE WOULD STILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO HAVE THE ANALYSIS OF THE TRADE-OFFS. NO AGREEMENT, OR THE AGREEMENT WAS INCONSISTENT. >>YES. >>CAN I PLEASE CLARIFY THIS? >>IF MY AMENDMENT FAILS, THE LANGUAGE WILL SIMPLY SAY A WRITTEN WRITTEN AGREEMENT PERTAINING TO SHARING DATA. BUT NOT THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH THEY ARE >>THAT IS IN IT AS WELL >>THE PURPOSE IS FOR TRAFFIC COLLECTION, THE COLLECTION OF TRAFFIC DATA AND TRAVEL TIMES. >>IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THE REQUIREMENTS ARE UNDER STATE LAW. WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE WILLING TO LIVE WITH. THIS AMENDMENT POSES THE SAME REQUIREMENTS. THIS DISCUSSION WAS A LIVELY DEBATE AT THE WORKING GROUP LEVEL. IT HAS BEEN MOVED, HAS IT BEEN CAN YOU MOVE THIS ONE? THERE IS A VERSION TWO AND A VERSION THREE. I DON’T BELIEVE ANYBODY HAS VERSION THREE. YOU DO? >>I DID A QUICK LOOK OVER. >>IT MAY BE MOVED. BUT WE SHOULD AT LEAST GET IT ACCURATE. OKAY. >>I HEARD THE LANGUAGE. 9:23, THEY ARE IDENTICAL.>>IF WE MISSED SOMETHING, THAT WILL TURN OUT LATER I WILL MOVE AMENDMENT EIGHT LISTED AT THE TOP MOVED AND AMENDED, NUMBER EIGHT HAS BEEN MOVED AND SECONDED. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR ASK PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND. ALL AS OPPOSED? SAY NO AND RAISE YOUR HAND. IT FEELS 3-6. WE HAVE A NUMBER NINE.>>OKAY, OKAY. >>COUNCIL MEMBER, GET YOUR RULES OF ORDER PRETTY SOON HERE. THIS LEGISLATION PASSED OUT OF THE COMMITTEE AS PART OF AMENDMENT NUMBER 11 EIGHT, NINE, TEN, 11. LET ME CLARIFY. NUMBER 11 INCORPORATES THE AMENDMENTS THAT PASSED THE COMMUNITY TABLE. ELEMENTS COMING OUT OF THE COMMITTEE. MOVED AND SECONDED. ANY DISCUSSION ON THIS MAN? AND KEEPING MY IS CROSSED THAT IT PASSES. IS ALL OF THE HARD WORK THAT EVERYONE HAS DONE ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF THE HUMAN? PROPOSED? THE AMENDMENT PASSES. WE HAVE THE SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCE READY FOR A VOTE. IT IS NUMBER 119 519. JUST A SECOND. I WILL SAY A FEW THINGS AFTER COUNSEL BILL 119 519 AS AMENDED NINE IN FAVOR, NONE OPPOSED >>ALLOW ME TO SAY THANK YOU COUNCIL MEMBER BRIAN THANK YOU FOR PUSHING THE ENVELOPE ON ALL THOSE ISSUES. THIS IS STILL ONE OF THE BEST SURVEILLANCE ORDINANCES, SETTING THE BAR FOR THE CITY. I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR YOUR OLD AGENT AND LEADERSHIP IN THE SURVEILLANCE. CRAIG, LISA, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. KATE HAS BEEN AWESOME AS USUAL. AND THE UNITY SURVEILLANCE WORKING GROUP, THANK YOU FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT THIS WAS A LONG TIME COMING.>>I WANT TO PERSONALLY THANK GREG AND LISA. A LOT OF THE DEPARTMENTS HAVE BEEN RESPONDING TO YOUR REQUEST. THAT WAS A COMMUNITY EFFORT. I AM DISAPPOINTED IN THE OUTCOME BUT GRATEFUL FOR THE TIMING THIS WEEKEND. >>I WILL STAY ITEMS SIX AND SEVEN. CAN YOU READ THEM TOGETHER? >>SIX AND SEVEN. RELATED TO THE SALE AND USE OF TOBACCO PRODUCTS SOLD TO MINORS AND I MINORS CRIMES AND OFFENSES CONCERNING ANIMALS AS WELL >>THESE ORDINANCES ARE JUST A RECONCILIATION OF STATE AND CITY CODE TO STATE LAW. THE USE AND SALE OF TOBACCO TO MINORS, AND CRIMES RELATING TO ANIMALS. THE STATE LEGISLATURE APPROVED A BILL TO CHANGE THE LEGAL AGE OF PURCHASING TOBACCO AND BEEPING PRODUCTS 18 TO 21. IT IS REMEDIED BY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE IN THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, AND OTHER HEALTH ADVOCATES, 21 AT THE MINIMUM AS THE STANDARD. THE ORDINANCE RELATING TO ANIMALS AND CRIMES AND OFFENSES, THE ORDINANCE CHANGES THE CLASSIFICATION OF THE MAXIMUM PENALTY FOR CERTAIN ANIMAL CONTROL CRIMES AND ASK THESE QUESTIONS PATIENTS CONSISTENT WITH STATE LAW. THE CRIMES RISK AND ASKED MAXIMUM PENALTY OPPOSED FROM 180 DAYS IN JAIL AND A $500 FINE TO 364 DAYS IN JAIL AND A $5000 FINE FINE. IT INCLUDES KEEPING AN EXOTIC ANIMAL OR USING A GUARD DOG WITHOUT A GUARD DOG LICENSE, HAVING A SICK, DANGEROUS, OR EXOTIC ANIMAL SOLD. WE ARE REVISING OUR CODE TO MAKE SURE WE ARE CONSISTENT WITH STATE LAW. >>ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS ON THIS LEGISLATION? THESE CALL ON 119626.>>GONZALEZ? PACHECO? EIGHT IN FAVOR, NONE OPPOSED. >>IS MEMBER PACHECO, YOU ARE OFF THE HOOK. >>I COULD CONTINUE SHARING YOUR>>I MISSED A HUGE OPPORTUNITY. ACCORDING TO MY STAFF. MY APOLOGIES. THE BILL PASSES. I JUST LOST MY RHYTHM, WAS THAT NUMBER SEVEN OR SIX? THAT WAS NUMBER SIX, PLEASE CALL THE ROLE ON COUNSEL BILL 119637.>>EIGHT IN FAVOR, NONE OPPOSED. >>THE CHAIR WILL SIGN IT PLEASE READ THE NEXT AGENDA. >>ITEM 21. 119607 PASSING AS AMENDED. >>COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN? >>THANK YOU, COLLEAGUES. I WILL TAKE MY SURVEILLANCE HAT OFF AND PUT MY CLAIMANT CHANGE HAT ON. THIS LEGISLATION WAS ORIGINALLY POSED BY THE MAYOR’S OFFICE. I AM VERY SUPPORTIVE OF IT. THIS LEGISLATION ESSENTIALLY HAS A PHASEOUT OF THE USE OF UNDERGROUND OIL TANKS. UNDER THE CURRENT CONDITION, 2028, THE INTENT IS ALSO TO HAVE A TAX PLACEMENT OF JUST UNDER $0.25 PER GALLON, LOOKING AT YOUR REFERENCE, I’VE BEEN TOLD THAT A TYPICAL HOMEOWNER WOULD USE ABOUT 500 GALLONS. I’VE HEARD FROM OIL DISTRIBUTION COMPANIES THAT IT’S CLOSER TO 400 GALLONS, C COULD GET $125 PER YEAR. THAT WOULD BE THE COST OF TAXES FOR SOMEONE USING A PETROLEUM- BASED OIL. AND COMMUNITY AMENDED AMENDMENTS FOR BIOFUELS. THE EXEMPTION WOULD NOT APPLY PALM OIL, REDUCED IN A WAY THAT IS JUST AS CARBON INTENSIVE AND DAMAGING TO THE PLAN AS PETROLEUM. BUT RECYCLED REESE, OR BIOFUELS PRODUCED MORE SUSTAINABLY AND LOCALLY. THE TAXES WOULD BE WAIVED ON THE MOTION OF THE BIOFUELS IN THE TANK. IF YOU HAVE A MIX OF 50/50 BIOFUELS AND PETROLEUM OIL, THE TAXES WOULD BE HALF WHAT IT WOULD OTHERWISE BE, IF YOU HAVE A MIX OF 99% BIOFUELS AND 1% OR LESS, THE TAXES WOULD BE MOSTLY ELIMINATED. HIGHLIGHTING THE FOLKS THAT ARE CURRENTLY IN ON THESE. I WOULD BACK UP FOR A SECOND OILS NOT REGULATING UTILITY THE SAME AS HEAT AND GAS, FOR HE WITH ELECTRICITY. WE KNOW THAT THE CITY OF SEATTLE HAS PROGRAMS FOR LOW INCOME HOMEOWNERS, THAT USE ELECTRICITY FOR HEATING OR FOR OTHER PURPOSES, I ASSUME EVERYBODY USES IT. AND THE UTILITY DISCOUNT PROGRAM, A SIGNIFICANT DISCOUNT. THERE ARE SOME ROOMS THAT PUGET SOUND ENERGY RUNS FOR GAS CUSTOMERS. THERE IS NO SUCH MECHANISM FOR OIL AND FOR. THIS WOULD BE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE UNDER THE SAME INCOME LEVEL, ELIGIBLE FOR A SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENT FROM THE TAX PROCEEDINGS TO CONDUCT THEM COMPLETELY TO A HEAT, WHICH WOULD PROVIDE HEATING, AT A MUCH MORE COST-EFFECTIVE GIVE RATE. THE ANALYSIS I’VE SEEN FROM THE DEPARTMENT SHOWS BASED ON THE CURRENT COST OF HEATING OIL, IT COSTS ABOUT TWICE AS MUCH TO FILE HEATING FURNACE AS IT WOULD BE FOR AN ELECTRIC FURNACE PROVIDING COOLING IN THE SUMMERS, WE ARE SEEING MORE AND INSTANCES WHERE THE HEIGHT OF JURORS IN SEATTLE HAVE HEALTH IMPACT ESTIMATED OVER 1000 PEOPLE WOULD CURRENTLY QUALIFY FOR THE UTILITY DISCOUNT PROGRAM AND WOULD ELIGIBLE FOR THESE KIND OF CONVERSIONS. YOU CAN AMENDMENT AMENDED IT FOR FOLKS TO BE ELIGIBLE. WE ARE LOOKING AT ADDITIONAL REVENUES. NOT EVERYBODY WOULD BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE VERSION. WE ARE LOOKING AT WHAT’S ABILITY AND SLIGHTLY HIGHER INCOME LEVELS. THERE ARE FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES. THE PRECEDING CONVERSATIONS THAT WE’VE HAD WITH A NUMBER OF STAKEHOLDERS INCLUDING TEAMSTERS 174. TALKING TO THE HEATING AND OIL COMPANIES, I BELIEVE THE CONVERSATIONS WHERE EVERYONE WOULD RECOGNIZE THE CLAIMANT IMPACT AND FIGURE OUT WHAT A TRANSITION LOOKS LIKE PART OF THAT TRANSITION IS THE AMENDMENT TO ALLOW BIOFUELS TO BE TAXED. ALSO, WORKING TO ENSURE OPPORTUNITIES FOR WORKERS THAT MAY LOSE THEIR JOBS AND HAVE SIMILAR UNION FAMILY WAGE JOBS. TURNING TO MY COLLEAGUE WHO HAS BEEN PART OF ONE OF THOSE DISCUSSIONS, HELPFUL WITH THOSE DISCUSSIONS.>>I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE THE AMENDMENT BY INCORPORATING AMENDMENT ONE. >>MOVED AND SECONDED.>>THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.>>I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR WORKING WITH US. WORKING WITH TEAMSTERS CITY COUNCIL. AND ALONG WITH SOME OF MY COLLEAGUES FROM THE LABOR MOVEMENT, THE CONSTRUCTION TRADES WERE HERE EARLIER. BUILDING CONSTRUCTION TRADES AS A WHOLE. WE CONTINUE TO SAY THAT FOLKS WITHIN THE INDUSTRY’S THAT WILL BE IMPACTED BY TRANSITION AWAY FROM ANY INDUSTRY NEED TO HAVE A JUST TRANSITION. SOME OF THE LANGUAGE THAT YOU SEE IN THE LEGISLATION COOPERATES THAT AND WORK WITH AMENDMENT ONE, JUBILEE -UNDERSCORE -UNDERSCORE SOME KEY COMPONENTS BROUGHT TO US FROM PARTNERS AND FRIENDS AT THE TEAMSTERS AND CORRESPOND AND REALLY AMPLIFIES THE IMPORTANCE OF LOOKING AT THE IMPACT OF WORKERS THEMSELVES AND FIGURING OUT HOW TO ENSURE A JUST TRANSITION FOR VARIOUS INDUSTRIES AND LOW-WAGE WORKERS AND COMMUNITIES OF COLOR. AND LOOKING AT THE WORK INCLUDED HERE, WE LOOK THROUGH THE EQUITY PERSPECTIVE. THERE IS AN ACKNOWLEDGMENT THAT WE NEED TO FIX THE UNDERGROUND HEATING OIL TANKS. AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL RISK WHEN THEY LEAK AS THEY THREAT THEY POSE A THREAT PROPERTY. THIS AMENDMENT REALLY ADDRESSES THE FINANCIAL BURDEN WHEN THEY TESTIFY ABOUT POTENTIAL IMPACT ON MIDDLE INCOME, LOW, AND FIXED INCOME HOUSING. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SUPPORTING THAT AS WELL. AS WE CONVERT TO NON- OIL OPTIONS, ADDRESSING ANY ISSUES THAT COME UP, THERE IS A WASHINGTON STATE POLLUTION LIABILITY PROTECTION ACT. PROVIDING ASSISTANCE FOR FINANCIAL HARDSHIP, AND GOING TO OPTIONS WHERE AS THOSE INCENTIVES ARE PROVIDED, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE IF THERE ARE ADDITIONAL RESOURCES, THAT WE SUPPORT COMMUNITIES COMING UP THROUGH THIS TRANSITION. ALSO, AS I MENTIONED, THERE IS LANGUAGE THAT CALLS FOR RISK ASSESSMENT, AND EQUITY ANALYSIS. THAT IS CRITICAL. WE HAVE CORPORATIVE THE PLAN, WHICH WE LOADED ON RECENTLY. WE ARE ALSO CALLING ON THE OUTREACH LAND TO INCLUDE THE PERSPECTIVE AND THE FEEDBACK, AND THE MANY CONCERNS FROM PEOPLE WITHIN RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITIES FROM THE LABOR UNION AND LABOR INDUSTRY AS WE MOVE FORWARD AND DO THE OUTREACH. AS WE CALL FOR A JUST TRANSITION, IT WOULD NOT BE JUST IF WE DID NOT INCLUDE FEEDBACK ON INDIVIDUALS WITH POLICY CHANGES, LOOKING BACK AT CITY OUTCOMES, AND FEEDBACK THAT WE CAN GET EARLY ON POTENTIAL IMPACT OF JOB LOSS AND GAIN, AND MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE LOOKING AT JOBS IN HEATING AND AIR, WITH A SPECIFIC FOCUS ON WORKERS REPRESENTED BY LABOR UNIONS. MAKING SURE THAT WE TRANSITION AND LOOK AT THE NECESSARY SUPPORTTO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE HAVE THOSE JOBS, WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU ALL AS WE GET THAT FEEDBACK. LASTLY, THANK YOU TO THE GREEN YOU DEAL WORK GROUP AND COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN WORKING ON THE POLICIES. I THINK THIS IS HELPING US TO MOVE FORWARD WITH A REALLY ROBUST ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY WITHOUT THE POTENTIAL OF LEAVING WORKERS BEHIND. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO IS COLLABORATING WITH US ON THIS EFFORT. I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING IT IN COURT DID IN THE LEGISLATION. >>AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE WILL BE ADDED TO THE COUNCIL BILL I WILL MAKE SURE THAT IT HAS A SECOND AMENDMENT. >>IT WILL BE MOVED AND SECONDED. >>MOVED, MADE AND SECONDED BY COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALES. AMENDMENT NUMBER ONE. ALL AS OPPOSED? WE HAVE AN AMENDMENT, AND COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN, DID YOU WANT TO TALK MORE ABOUT THE BASE LEGISLATION? WHY DON’T WE BRING IT TO THE COUNCIL MEMBER? >>I APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH. SO, I HAVE THREE AMENDMENT HERE. AMENDMENTS TWO, THREE, FOUR AMENDMENTS. THREE, FOUR, FIVE I HEARD THAT THE LEGISLATION REQUIRES TAXES AS WRITTEN, BUT IT DOES NOT ACTUALLY IMPLEMENT THE REQUIREMENT TO DECOMMISSION OIL TANKS. THAT IS GOING TO BE DONE IN THE FUTURE, BUT THERE ARE A NUMBER OF OTHER COORDINATES, COORDINATIONS THAT MUST BE MADE TO INCREMENT THAT. I THINK IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT TO HAVE SOME CLARITY ABOUT THAT, FOR THE RECORD. WE HAVE RECEIVED A LOT OF QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS, AND ABOUT WHAT EXACTLY THIS PIECE OF LEGISLATION DOES. SO OF COURSE, THE REQUIREMENT IN THE BILL ITSELF IS THAT WE ARE SEEKING THAT THE ENVIRONMENT CHANGE, AND THE SEATTLE PARTNER OF CONSTRUCTION AND INSPECT GINS, THAT THEY MAKE A RECOMMENDATION BY JULY 2020 FOR THE PURPOSES OF DECOMMISSIONING WHAT IS CONTAINED IN THIS LEGISLATION. SO AS FAR AS SETTING A STAGE FOR THE MEMS THAT I HAVE, THE CONCERN THAT I HAVE HEARD FROM SENIORS AND LOW INCOME RESIDENTS ABOUT THE IMPACT OF THE LEGISLATION, IT IS REALLY, CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO ALL OF US. ESTIMATING THAT 30% OF OIL HEATED HOUSEHOLDS WERE WITH SENIOR RESIDENTS. 60% ARE ESTIMATED TO BE SENIORS. THE CONVERSION DOES NOT QUITE APPEAR TO ADD UP YET. WE HAVE TIME TO GET THAT RIGHT. THE BACK OF THE ENVELOPE AT THIS POINT PROVIDES FUNDING FOR 1100 CONVERSIONS, BASED ON THE NUMBER OF RESIDENTS IN THE PROGRAM, THE UTILITY DISCOUNT PROGRAM. PARTICIPATION IS 53% OF THOSE ELIGIBLE. A LOT YOU ARE PEOPLE ARE PARTICIPATING COMPARED TO THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT ARE ELIGIBLE, ACCORDING TO THE DEVELOP BY THE UTILITIES. THE COUNCIL REQUESTED IT THROUGH THE LAST YEARS BUDGET PROCESS. THERE IS GOOD REASON TO THINK THAT PARTICIPATION IN THIS PROGRAM WILL BE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THIS PROGRAM BEING THE PROGRAM TO FUND THE COMMISSION OF OIL TANKS, THAT THE NUMBER WILL BE SIGNIFICANT HIGHER THAN THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO PARTICIPATE IN A PROGRAM THAT IS DESIGNED TO HELP THEM PAY MONTHLY UTILITY BILLS. THE COST CURRENTLY HIGHER. I THINK IT IS REASONABLE TO ANTICIPATE PARTICIPATION IN A PROGRAM THAT WOULD HELP TO PAY FOR THAT. AND SO, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I THINK WE ARE LOOKING AT HERE, THE UTILITY DISCOUNT PROGRAM IS SITTING AT% OF THE INCOME FOR THIS. AND THE LEGISLATION BEFORE US NOW WAS BROUGHT AT 80% OF THE MEDIAN SEATTLE AREA INCOME. MORE PEOPLE WILL BECOME ELIGIBLE BASED ON INCOME. IF 3000 – – THEY WOULD REQUIRE $10 MILLION ADDITIONALLY FOR THEIR PROGRAMS. I’M SORRY, THE CONVERSION PROGRAM WOULD REQUIRE AN INITIAL $10 MILLION. AND THE PROGRAM WOULD POTENTIALLY ROOF WHERE $1 MILLION. YOU MAY ALL WHEN WE BROUGHT THE INCOMES WORKING THEIR WAY THROUGH THE COURTS, ONE OF THE HIGH-PRIORITY FUNDING ITEMS IS THE CREATION OF JOBS PRODUCTION GOAL, THE POTENTIAL USE OF THE FUNDING WE’VE BEEN THINKING ABOUT THIS IN TERMS OF LEGISLATION, WE THINKING ABOUT CONSTANTLY MEETING OUR CARBON REDUCTION GOALS. TO ADDRESS ALL OF THIS, I HAVE THE AMENDMENT THAT WOULD AMEND CONSUL BILL 1196 OR SEVEN, TO CLARIFY THAT LOW INCOME HOUSEHOLDS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE REBATE, THEY WOULD BE AT OR BELOW 80% AREA MEDIAN INCOME. THIS AMOUNT IS INTENDED TO OFFSET THE ANTICIPATED AVERAGE INCREASE FOR HOUSEHOLDS USING OIL. THE AMENDMENT COMMITTEE CHANGE THE THRESHOLD FOR CONVERSION ASSISTANCE. THIS AMENDMENT WOULD DO THE SAME FOR THE PROGRAM CURRENTLY THIS SECTION ONLY REFERS TO LOW INCOME HOUSEHOLDS, IT DOES NOT FOR IT DOES NOT DEFINE IT. THE DEFINITION OF LOW INCOME THROUGHOUT LEGISLATION, FOR THE REBATE PROGRAM, AS WELL AS FOR THE FUNDING OF THE CONVERSION PROGRAM, REACHING OUT JUST A LITTLE BIT BEFORE THIS PARTICULAR AMENDMENT THEY HAVE REQUESTED THAT WE CREATE SOME STABILITY AROUND THE PROPOSED DEFINITION SO THAT IT IN DEAD WOULD BE IDENTIFIED AS A GOAL THAT WE HAVE AN ANALYSIS OF THE VIABILITY TO EXTEND THE HEATING AND OIL TAX REIMBURSEMENT, TO HOUSEHOLD WITH AN INCOME BETWEEN 70% STATE MEDIAN INCOME AND 80% MEDIAN INCOME. THAT WOULD NOT CREATE THE TYPE OF CONSISTENCY THAT I AM SEEKING. IT IS NOT CONSISTENT WITH THE AMENDMENT OF US RIGHT NOW. I AM HESITANT TO REQUEST A SUSPENSION OF THE RULES IN ORDER TO CONSIDER LANGUAGE THAT WE DON’T HAVE DEVICE. BUT WE WOULD LIKE TO OPEN UP TO WHAT OTHERS WOULD LIKE TO SEE DONE WITH THIS AMENDMENT, NUMBER ONE OR AMENDMENT NUMBER TWO, VERSE NUMBER ONE B TO THIS AS YOU LIKE >>THOSE AMENDMENTS WERE IN JUST BEFORE THE DEADLINE >>IF I CHANGE IT TO REFLECT THIS, TO REFLECT THAT IN, WE WOULD HAVE TO DELIBERATE LANGUAGE THAT WE DON’T ACTUALLY HAVE >>I’M GOING TO OPPOSE THIS MADMAN AS DRAFTED I WILL JUST SAY IT FOR THE RECORD. I WAS ABLE TO SHARE THESE AS SOON AS THEY GOT THEM, AT ABOUT NOON. THEY DID NOT HAVE TIME TO RESPOND TO US. THE CONCERN THAT THEY SHARED WITH ME THAT I SHARE WITH THEM, WE CURRENTLY DO NOT HAVE THE PROGRAMS AT THE CITY WERE FOLKS ARE NULLIFIED AT 80% AREA IAN THRESHOLD >>BUT WE WILL RIGHT? >>IT THERE IS A DISTINCTION BETWEEN SUBSIDY INSTALLING ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS GOING FORWARD THEY ARE COMFORTABLE SETTING UP A SYSTEM TO VERIFY PEOPLE TO THE STANDARDS THAT THEY ARE COMFORTABLE WITH. IT IS AND ON WILL REBATE, THE REQUIREMENTS, I DON’T THINK THAT THEY ARE JUST GOING TO TAKE THEIR WORD FOR IT. THERE HAVE BEEN QUALIFICATION PROGRAMS AND I THINK IT WOULD BE PRUDENT TO HAVE THE CONVERSATION AND SET UP VERIFICATION MEET THOSE STANDARDS FOR EVERYONE IS QUALIFIED AND GET THEIR OWN REBATE. THE POINT THAT YOU MAKE IS THAT THEY ARE STARTING INTO THIS ALREADY. I AGREE WITH THAT. I WOULD SUPPORT THE LANGUAGE THAT I SEE PROPOSED. DUE TO THE ANALYSIS ON THIS. INSTEAD OF THAT REPORTING REQUIREMENT, WHAT WAS PUT DOWN, A THIRD BOARD ITEM, ANALYSIS OF THE VIABILITY TO EXTEND REIMBURSEMENT TO HOUSEHOLD INCOMES ARE IN THE 70% AND 80% AREA INCOME. WORKING WITH SEATTLE CITY LIGHT TO ALLOW THEM TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW MUCH TAX REVENUE WOULD EITHER AND WHAT THAT MEANS WITH FEWER PEOPLE BEING ELIGIBLE. WE ACTUALLY COULD NOT FULLY CONVERT PEOPLE IN THE SAME WAY. I THINK THAT IS ALL IN PERMISSION TO HAVE IN FRONT OF US BEFORE WE MAKE THIS DECISION ALLOWING THE ABILITY FOR FUTURE DECISION-MAKING AND WHAT. BUT I CANNOT SUPPORT THIS REQUIREMENT WITHOUT FURTHER WEIGHING IN.>>THANK YOU, SO I THINK THE COUNCIL MEMBER IS CORRECT. I THINK THIS IS GOING TO MOLLIFY A HIGHER NUMBER OF PEOPLE. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT 80% MEDIAN INCOME AND AREA STATE MY GOAL IS TO MAKE SURE THAT A SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER NUMBER OF EVIL ARE NULLIFIED FOR THIS REBATE PROGRAM. ALL OF THAT SAID, I DON’T HAVE ANY WAY TO IN THIS. IT IS CURRENTLY UNDEFINED IN LEGISLATION AND GETTING MORE INFORMATION. UNDER THAT SITUATION, I WOULD SAY THAT IT WOULD BE CIRCUMSTANCE THAT WE WOULD WANT TO SUSPEND THE RULES FOR, TO CONSIDER THAT YOU TEXT THAT HAS NOT SUBMITTED BY THE DEADLINE AT NOON TODAY >>I WOULD SUGGEST IF WE GO DOWN THE PATH OF APPROVAL, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO E-MAIL. WE HAVE DOZENS OF OTHER ITEMS TO CONSIDER ON THE AGENDA TODAY CAN BRING BACK SOME THINGS FOR FINAL CONSIDERATION.>>IT SOUNDS LIKE. >>IT IS ALMOST 5:00 AND ADDING A LITTLE DIZZY >>IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU WOULD HAVE SOME FOR US. I COULD MOVE TO THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM THOSE ARE THE HUMANS ON THIS WILL NOT PARTICULAR AMENDMENT, WE WILL TABLE IT>>SHOULD BE VOTE ON THE AMENDMENT AS DESCRIBED AND SET TO WORK? YOU I AM E-MAILING IT TO YOLANDA RIGHT NOW.>>IT HAS NOT WERE SECONDED. WE WILL CALL THAT VIRTUE. >>WOULD YOU LIKE TO MOVE NUMBER THREE? >>AMENDMENT NUMBER THREE WOULD AMEND CONSUL BILL NUMBER 1196 OH SEVEN. EXEMPTING RESIDENTS OVER THE AGE OF 65. – – HEAT PUMPS CAN CERTAINLY PROVIDE FOR LOWER KEATING HEATING COSTS. AND THOSE COSTS AND CONVERSION COULD PAY FOR ITSELF OVER TIME. ELDERLY RESIDENTS MAY NOT HAVE THE LONGEVITY IN THEIR HOME IN ORDER TO ENJOY THOSE FUTURE BENEFITS AND ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE ON FIXED INCOMES. I’M GOING TO ENSURE THAT THE PROGRAMS ARE FUNDED, BUT I THINK IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT IN PARTICIPATING WITH THE PROGRAMS, THAT WE DON’T HAVE FOLKS, WHERE WE ARE SEEING ON ONE HAND WILL BENEFIT FROM THE DECOMMISSIONING, OVER TIME, THAT DON’T ACTUALLY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO, AND SO FOR THAT REASON, THEY WOULD AGAIN EXEMPT RESIDENTS OVER THE AGE OF 65. >>COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN? >>I HAVE SOME CONCERNS ABOUT THIS. BECAUSE THE AMENDMENT JUST SAYS WE SHOULD CONSIDER A PLAN, IT DOESN’T ACTUALLY EXEMPT THEM I’M COMFORTABLE WITH MOVING OVER IT. MY CONCERN IS ONE SHARED BY FOLKS OVER THE AGE OF 65, THEY SHOULD CONTINUE TO DEAL WITH THIS AND LOOK AT THE INCOME THRESHOLD AS IT IS IMPORTANT THE OTHER ONE EXISTS ALREADY. THIS LEGISLATION IS CLOSELY TIED TO STATE FUNDING THROUGH SOMETHING CALLED THE POLLUTION LIABILITY INSURANCE AGENCY. THIS AGENCY CREATED AT, IN THE CASE WHERE OIL TANKS HAVE LEAKED, THE DECOMMISSIONING OF AN OIL TANK TYPICALLY COSTS 500 UP TO $700 FOLKS FIND THAT IT HAS LEAKED, THAT WOULD REQUIRE SOIL MEDIATION WHICH CAN COST TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS SO SOMEONE WHO BUDGETS TO GO IN AND CONVERT FROM OIL TO SOMETHING ELSE, I HAVE THIS MASSIVE WILL. THERE WERE SOME PROBLEMS. SOME SAID IT WAS VERY EXPENSIVE, OTHERS WOULD TRY TO COVER UP A LEAK BECAUSE THEY HAD NO WAY TO AFFORD IT AND THAT MEANT THAT STAYED IN THE GROUND. THIS AGENCY WAS CREATED TO FIX THAT. IT IS AN INSURANCE RULE. IT DOES NOT ACTUALLY COST ANYTHING TO JOIN. IT IS A UNIQUE TYPE OF INSURANCE. THAT AGENCY WILL AND AT THE BEGINNING OF 2030. THERE IS A FINITE NUMBER OF GUIDELINES IN THE STATE LEGISLATURE EACH YEAR. THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO GET ALL SEATTLE RESIDENTS IN TO CONSIDER THE COMMISSIONING OR THAT INSURANCE POOL. IT CEASES TO EXIST. ONE OF MY CONCERNS, THEY HAVE POSSIBLY UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES TO POSTPONE A DECISION. CONTINUING TO HAVE AN INCOME THRESHOLD FOR FOLKS, EVEN IF THEY ARE SENIORS, MAYBE IT IS A DIFFERENT ONE, I DON’T KNOW BUT ALSO LOOKING AT WHAT THAT MIGHT MEAN FOR WHO PUSH BEYOND THE LIMIT OF THE INSURANCE AGENCY. >>DID I HEAR THE AMENDMENT THROUGH THAT DISCUSSION? >>I WILL MOVE THAT TO 9607. YOU MOVED AND SECONDED COUNCIL MEMBER BRIAN HAD EXPRESSED HIS SUPPORT. COUNCIL MEMBER PACHECO WANTED TO MAKE SOME COMMENTS. >>I WILL NOT BE SOME WORDING THE AMENDMENT. I WANTED TO QUICKLY GIVE SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT NOT JUST THIS AMENDMENT AND OTHER AMENDMENT ON THE HEATING AND OIL TAXES ITSELF I AM VERY, VERY SENSITIVE TO THE ISSUES OF JOB LOSS. MY DAD HAD LOST HIS JOB TWICE OVER THE LAST YEARS AND I KNEW OF HIS WORRIES AND CONCERNS THAT ARE VERY REAL, AND AS SUCH, I TREAT THEM WITH THE UTMOST REGARD HOWEVER, I AM CONCERNED WITH CREATING ADDITIONAL EXEMPTIONS FOR THE LEGISLATION ITSELF. FISCALLY, WITH THE DIRECTION THE BILL HAS GONE, IT MAY HAVE UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES AS WE MOVE TOWARD. I SAID TO SOME STAKEHOLDERS THAT I THINK THIS IS VERY FORTUNATE BECAUSE OF THE TAX STRUCTURE FROM WHICH WE OPERATE. I THOUGHT IT MIGHT NEED TO BE A LITTLE BIGGER TO HELP TO SUBSIDIZE THE INCREASE IN THE EXEMPTIONS THAT WE HAVE CREATED, IN ADDITION TO RECOGNIZING AND BEING COGNIZANT OF THE FACT NEED FUNDING AND ESTABLISHING FUNDING TO RETRAIN WORKERS AND IN JOBS THAT MAY BE LOST AS A RESULT. THAT SAID, OSC AND CENTRAL STAFF SAID IN COMMITTEE THAT NO OTHER INVESTMENTS DO WE EVALUATE THE DATA EXCEPT ENVIRONMENTAL AGREEMENTS. RECORD THE ACTIONS IN THE VOICES OF THE YOUNG PEOPLE PROTESTING ON FRIDAY DEMANDING AND CALLING ON ALL OF US AS LEADERS TO DO WHAT WE CAN TO MAKE ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE MORE REAL AND MOVE QUICKER. THAT SAID, I CANNOT SUPPORT THIS AMENDMENT, NOR CAN I SUE DELAYED IMPLEMENTATION OF LEGISLATION. I THINK THAT WE NEED TO BE MOVING FASTER. AND WE NEED TO DO MORE TO HELP COMMUNITIES TO TRANSFER. THE DIVERSION OF NEW WEATHERIZATION EFFORTS AND ELECTRIC HEATING EFFORTS. I WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT UNDERLYING LEGISLATION AS OF THIS. >>THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER HELP YOU ANY CALL ON THE VOTE FOR AMENDMENT NUMBER THREE THAT HAS BEEN MOVED AND SET? OKAY COUNCIL MEMBER? >>CAN YOU CLARIFY THE THIRD AMENDMENT ONE MORE TIME? WE ARE FOCUSING ON AMENDMENT THREE IMPLEMENTATION FROM JULY TO SEPTEMBER 2020. AMENDMENT NUMBER THREE IS THE AMENDMENT THAT ASKS FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION THERE IS A REFERENCE TO THE MENTATION PLAN.>>COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN IS NOTES HERE AS WELL. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR OF AN NUMBER THREE? THOSE OPPOSED? OKAY, THAT ONE PASSES. OKAY. >>AMENDMENT FOUR WOULD AMEND CONSUL BILL 119607 TO DELAY THE EFFECT DATE OF THE TAX FOR TWO MONTHS. THE BILL CURRENTLY SAYS JULY FIRST 2020. MY AMENDMENT WOULD HAVE THE EFFECT IT DATE BE ON SEPTEMBER 1ST. THE REASON IS, I REALLY LIKE THE COUNCIL TO HAVE A COUPLE MONTHS TO ENSURE THAT THE NUMBERS ADD UP FROM JULY 1ST 2020 WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION REPORT. THIS COULD HELP TO ADDRESS LABOR CONCERNS AND I THINK IT IS GOOD TO HAVE A POLICY TO LOOK AT THIS PARTICULAR TAX. NEW COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN >> I WILL BE UP LOSING THIS. I SEE THE CONCERNS, I’M FAIRLY CONSTANT CONFIDENT THAT WE WILL NOT SPEND TOO MUCH MONEY, TO FIND OUT THE DELAY A COUPLE MONTHS, AND THE REVENUE THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO COLLECT. I AM OPEN IT OPEN TO CHANGING THE DATE. I DO BELIEVE FROM THE PRELIMINARY DATA ON SCENE, WE WILL HAVE ENOUGH FUNDING TO FUND THE LOWEST INCOME FOLKS THAT WOULD QUALIFY FOR ADP. IT WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE ADDITIONAL REVENUE, FROM THIS OR LIKELY FROM OTHER SOURCES. I DON’T THINK THAT REPORT WILL DO IT JUSTICE. SIMPLY STALLING AND PUTTING ON A TAX ON THIS FOR PETROLEUM PRODUCTS, I DON’T THINK IT MAKES SENSE AT THIS POINT. >>I JUST WANT TO ADD THAT PART OF WHAT WE ACCOMPLISHED IN THE AMENDMENT IS THAT THE PLAN WOULD INCLUDE RACIAL EQUITY AND RISK ASSESSMENT ANALYSIS AS WELL AS MAKING SURE THAT THE PRE- NEW DEAL OVERSIGHT BOARD GETS A COPY OF THE PLAN. I DON’T THINK IT IS INFORMATION THAT WE ARE ASKING FOR AN WILL BE RECEIVING. I THINK IT IS OPIATE TO HAVE A COUPLE MONTHS TO CONSIDER IT. >>WE HEARD THE LIVELY DEBATE ON IT, I WILL TAKE IT IN THE FORM OF A MOTION TO HAVE QUESTIONS OF THE MAKER? COUNCIL MEMBER GONZALES ASK >> QUICKLY, I THINK I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN HEARING A RESPONSE TO COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN’S POINT. THAT THE DELAY HAS A SIGNIFICANT FISCAL IMPACT ON THE AMOUNT OF TAX REVENUE COLLECTED, DO YOU HAVE A SENSE OF THE FISCAL ANALYSIS? >>I DO NOW. >>COUNCIL MEMBER, WILL YOU MAKE A MOTION AND SECONDED? >>I MOVE AMENDMENT FOUR TO THE COUNCIL. >>MOVED AND SECONDED. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR. ALL THOSE OPPOSED? IT PASSES. IT PASSES, AMENDMENT NUMBER FOUR PASSES. COUNCIL MEMBER? >>AMENDMENT NUMBER FIVE WILL HOPEFULLY BE EASY, JUST RECITAL. LOOKING AT REFRIGERANTS USED IN CONSUMER APPLIANCES, ELECTRIC HEAT PUMPS, AND THEIR COMMITMENT TO ADVOCATE FOR STATEWIDE REDUCTION WITH THOSE WITH HIGH GLOBAL WARMING POTENTIAL. THE STATE LEGISLATURE PASSED. IT WAS SIGNED INTO LAW, SUBSTITUTE HOUSE BILL 1120 22, WHICH ADOPTED REGULATIONS TO REDUCE THE USE THE USE OF REFRIGERANTS AND THOSE WHO HAVE THE HIGHEST GLOBAL WARMING TENSILE, THIS BILL DID NOT INCLUDE HEAT PUMPS, PROHIBITING THE USE OF HSV F HFC, BY JANUARY 1ST 2020, WITH COUNSEL SUPPORT TO EXPEDITE THE REDUCTION WITH HIGH GLOBAL WARMING POTENTIAL, AND SPECIFICALLY CALLING OUT THE NEED TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE AS IT RELATES TO HEAT PUMPS. >>COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN? >>IT IS A RECITAL. I AM FINE WITH THAT A LOT OF THIS HAS BEEN ADDRESSED IN THE STATE LAW I HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO SPEAK TO THE POINTS THAT THE COUNCIL MEMBER IS. SHE IS ALWAYS VERY THOROUGH IN EVERYTHING THAT SHE DOES. >>DID YOU MAKE THE FORMAL MOTION AMENDMENT? >>AMENDMENT FIVE. >>MOVED AND SECONDED. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR? RAISE YOUR HAND ALL THOSE OPPOSED? IT IS UNANIMOUS. I REMOVED BACK TO NUMBER TWO? THIS IS VERSION NUMBER TWO. WE’V GOT THAT THERE. >>THAT DOES THE TRICK FOR THE PUBLIC RECORD. THIS AMENDMENT WILL AMEND 96 OH SEVEN TO REQUEST THE OFFICE OF SUSTAINABILITY INCREASE THE NUMBER OF LOW INCOME HOUSEHOLDS,>>KEEPING IT ALIVE.>>I’M GOING TO SUSPEND THE RULES TO CONSIDER THIS IS REVIEWED BY LAW COUNCIL MEMBER, MAKE THAT MOTION. >>I MOVE AMENDMENT NUMBER TWO AND VERSION NUMBER TWO. >>I ALREADY SPOKE ABOUT THIS AND APPRECIATE THE CIVILITY. >>ANY OTHER COMMENTS? >>ALL THOSE IN FAVOR, RAISE YOUR HAND. ALL THOSE OPPOSED? I THINK WE GOT THROUGH ALL OF THE AMENDMENTS. AND GOING TO TURN BACK TO COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN FOR CLOSING REMARKS. >>A COUPLE COMMENTS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE. ONE, THIS IS AN IMPORTANT PIECE OF LEGISLATION, I APPRECIATE MERE LEADERSHIP ON THIS. I APPRECIATE YOU HOLDING THIS, JUST TO GET TO THIS POINT. WE TALK ABOUT THE TRANSITION TO A CLEAN ENERGY ECONOMY. PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR AN INCREASE. THE CLEAN ENERGY ECONOMY. WE RUN THROUGH A LOT OF LEGISLATION. THROUGH SEATTLE, WE HAVE A LOT OF WORK TO DO. IT IS WORK AND WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO KEEP ENGAGEMENTS, WE ALSO WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO THE CENTRAL STAFF, IN GENERAL, THEY BEEN DOING AMAZING WORK FOR THE LAST FEW WEEKS. THE NUMBER OF COMMUNITY MEETINGS. WORK STARTS TODAY. I AM EXTREMELY GRATEFUL THAT THEY WOULD GET THE AMENDMENT BACK IN TIME. I APPRECIATE YOUR ENGAGEMENT ON THIS AND I LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE WORK. >>COUNCIL MEMBER, WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE SOME COMMENTS? >>I SAID THIS EARLIER, AND I WANT TO UNDERSCORE MY APPRECIATION FOR COUNCIL MEMBER O’BRIEN INCORPORATING NUMEROUS SUGGESTIONS AND FEEDBACK. MY INTENT IS USUALLY HAVE A CONVERSATION AND MAKE SURE THAT WE GET THE DECK AND WE HAVE BEEN VERY, VERY OPEN ALSO RECOGNIZING THAT THIS IS ONE OF THE MANY ITEMS ON THE TO DO LIST FOR THE END OF THE YEAR, AND IT SPEAKS OF A BROADER PACKAGE AND THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF HOW PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY HAVE BEEN REACHING OUT TO TRY TO GET SOME OF WHAT IS AFFECTED. WE DID SOME SAUSAGE MAKING, WE INCLUDE THE FOLKS AT THE TABLE, I THINK THAT MAYOR’S OFFICE COULD HAVE INCORPORATED THIS SO WE HAD LESS OF THAT TO DO ON OUR END. WE DO GET A BETTER PRODUCT IN THE END. WE ARE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THE WORK THAT YOU’VE DONE. AND THE AMENDMENTS INCLUDED TODAY, WE HAD A CHANCE TO GO OVER THE FEEDBACK IN THE DIRECTION FROM THE TEAMSTERS. THANK YOU FOR THOSE NODS OF AFFIRMATION AND FOR THE ONLINE WORK TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU FORWARD AND DON’T DELAY, INCORPORATE THAT WORK, AND UNION PERSPECTIVE, THANK YOU FOR YOUR HARD WORK ON THIS FOR >>COUNCIL MEMBER JEKYLL? >>I WANT TO QUICKLY HIGHLIGHT THIS. THESE CONVERSATIONS, THE LACK OF INTERACTION ON THE FEDERAL LEVEL, EVEN FEDERALLY, THE DECISION THAT WE MAKE FORWARD, IT MAKES IT THAT MUH HARDER. I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT. I ALSO WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE E-MAILS THAT I HAVE BEEN RECEIVING ALL DAY, WITH THE HEADLINE, IT WAS ONLY THREE DAYS AGO. AND ALL THE PEOPLE WHO MERGE AND PROTEST, THAT ASKED US TO MOVE FORWARD AS QUICKLY AND EXPEDITIOUSLY AS POSSIBLE, THESE CHOICES WILL NOT BE EASY. QUITE FRANKLY, I WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE HOW DIFFICULT THOSE CHOICES ARE. IT MEANS FOR US, IT MEANS SO MANY FREIGHT TRADE-OFFS. THERE IS A TAX STRUCTURE. THOSE FOR THE LOW INCOME, AND COMMITTEES OF COLOR, THESE DECISIONS BY THE GREEN DEAL BOARD WILL BE DIFFICULT. WE HAVE MANY VOICES WHEN WE MAKE THESE DECISIONS. THE COUNCIL CAN MAKE THE BEST INFORMED DECISION IN A VARIETY OF DECISIONS. WE CAN CONTINUE IT AND KEEP MOVING US FORWARD, I NOT ONLY HAVE A RESPONSE ABILITY TO YOU, I HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO YOUR KIDS AND YOUR GRANDKIDS. IT IS MY RESPONSIBILITY TO TAKE THOSE DECISIONS AND TAKE THEM INTO THE ACTIONS THAT I MAKE. >>THANK YOU. ANY OTHER CLOSING COMMENTS? BEFORE WE VOTE. OKAY, PLEASE CALL THE ROLE ON THE PASSAGE OF THE AMENDED BILL HE IN FAVOR, NONE OPPOSED. >>THE BILL WILL PASS. OKAY. BACK TO THE AGENDA ORDER.

THANK YOU EMILY FOR HER PATIENCE AND INTEREST. I HAVE TO TELL YOU THE TESTIMONY TODAY WAS JUST A SENTIMENT OF ENTHUSIASM FROM THE COMMUNITY. PEOPLE ARE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE WORK THAT SHE HAS DONE AS THE INTERIM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND THE WORK THAT SHE DID YOU CAN TELL THAT THERE WAS A LOT OF RESPECT, YOU LISTEN TO HER COMMENTS FROM LAST WEEK AND YOU WILL HEAR A COMPASSIONATE CALL FOR EQUITABLE INVESTMENTS ESPECIALLY IN THE LOWEST WAGE WORKERS, HOUSING, AND MAKING SURE THAT AS WE DO DEVELOPMENT IN THE CITY, THAT WE INFORM THE COMMUNITY’S MOST AT RISK FOR DISPLACEMENT. TAKE A LOOK AT THAT. I AM READY TO STAND UP AND GIVE HER A STANDING OVATION. HONESTLY THE PROCESS THAT WE HAVE INCORPORATED, LAST YEAR WE ASKED FOR A REALLY ROBUST PROCESS FOR STAKEHOLDER FEEDBACK FROM THE IN REVIEW PROCESS AND IDENTIFYING FINALISTS, AND THEN GETTING THOSE COMMUNITY PARTNERS. I THINK YOU CAN TELL FROM THOSE CONVERSATIONS THE ROLE IN WHICH THE COMMUNITY HAS IDENTIFIED A STRONG LEADER, THAT IS REALLY RESONATED AND IN FULL TO THE AIR FOR NOMINATING EMILY FOR BEING THE NEXT OFFICE OF HOUSING DIRECTOR, SHE IS KNOWLEDGEABLE. SHE HAS A STRONG APPRECIATION FOR AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND SOCIAL INCLUSION AND USING HOUSING AS A TOOL. TREATING HEALTHIER AND MORE RESILIENT COMMITTEES. AND THE NOTION OF HAVING FORWARD TO ADDRESS THE CRIPPLING HOUSING CRISIS THAT WE REALLY INCLUDE MORE AFFORDABLE HOMES AND CENTER CONVERSATION AND POLICY BY THOSE EXPERIENCING SHE IS STILL WITH US. IT IS A TESTAMENT TO HER TO MET TENACITY. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.>>WE APPRECIATE ALL OF THE WORK THAT YOU HAVE DONE. SHE RECEIVED A HIGHLY COMPETITIVE FULL RIDE FROM THE GATES FOUNDATION PUBLIC SERVICE AWARD. I WANT TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE IT.

THANK YOU FOR SERVING. >>I WOULD LIKE TO MEMORY THE MOMENT GIVING A 20 MINUTE SPEECH. I’M JUST KIDDING. I’M DEFINITELY NOT GOING TO DO THAT. I HAD THE PLEASURE OF KNOWING EMILY FOR QUITE SOME TIME, I’VE LOOKED AT THE TIME FIRST MET EMILY IN 2014. I WAS ALWAYS AND CONSISTENTLY BLOWN AWAY BY HER PREPAREDNESS, HER COMMITMENT. MORE IMPORTANT, HER VISION AND HER PRINCIPAL, HER WILLINGNESS TO GIVE US TOUGH INFORMATION OR NEWS, AND I THINK THAT IS AN IMPORTANT POLITY TO HAVE AS A DIRECTOR, IN THE ROLE OF THE OFFICE OF HOUSING DIRECTOR, IT IS A TALL AN IMPORTANT TASK. IT IS ONE WHERE I THINK EMILY HAS ALL OF THE CHARACTERISTICS AND SKILL SETS TO BE ABLE TO RISE TO THE OCCASION. I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING HOW YOU GO THROUGH THIS. AND THE RESIDENT OF DISTRICT ONE. I DON’T KNOW IF THAT IS ENOUGH, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS. CONGRATULATIONS.>>I WANT TO QUICKLY SAY AMONG THE MANY THINGS I APPRECIATE AND VALUE ABOUT EMILY, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE HAVE PEOPLE IN DECISION-MAKING ROLES THAT COME FROM A PLACE OF PUSHING THIS MORE. I THINK IT ENSURES THAT WE CAN PUSH IS ALL FORWARD TOGETHER. AND WORKING WITH ORGANIZATIONS WHO HAVE A JOB MISSION OF PUSHING US FORWARD. I THINK THAT IS REALLY INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT, MAKING SURE THAT WE ARE ALL COLLABORATING. SOMEBODY WHO REALLY APPRECIATES THAT ROLE. AND WHAT PEOPLE SEE IN EXPECTATIONS, RATHER THAN SEEING IT AS A HASSLE OR A THORN IN THE BACK, EMILY KNOWS HOW TO DEAL WITH THE VOICES OUTSIDE OF CITY HALL, AND HOW THEY HELP US ALL TO DO OUR JOB MUCH BETTER THAN WE WOULD.

THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR CONFIDENCE IN ME, AND THANK YOU, MAYER, FOR APPOINTING ME. I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT HOUSING. HOUSING IS A HUMAN RIGHT AND WE BEST IN AFFORDABLE HOUSING, WE IMPROVE THE LIVES OF SO MANY INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES. HOUSING IS OUR HEALTHCARE, IT IS OUR EDUCATION. ECONOMIC AND CLIMATE RESILIENCE. IF WE LEAVE IT TO THE MARKET ALONE, IT WILL BE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR ONLY A FEW. WE COULD BUILD AN INFRASTRUCTURE OF EQUITY AND INCLUSION, SOME GENERATIONS TO COME, FOR PEOPLE ON A FIXED INCOME, FOR PEOPLE ON LOW WAGES, FOR MIDDLE INCOME HOUSEHOLDS, AND FOR ACROSS THE CITY. AS THE DIRECTOR, I’M REALLY EXCITED, AND REALLY HONORED TO WORK WITH THE FABULOUS STAFF AT THE OFFICE OF HOUSING, THE COMMUNITY PARTNERS THAT WE HAVE, AND WITH ALL OF YOU, TO ADVANCE RACIAL EQUITY, TO SCALE UP OUR INVESTMENTS, IN LOW INCOME HOUSING, PROMOTING MIDDLE INCOME HOUSING, TO ADDRESS DISPLACEMENT.

PLEASE READ THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM. >>COUNSEL BILL ITEM 11964. THE COMMUNITY RECOMMENDS THE BILL PASSES. >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH. >>THIS WILL BE SHORT. THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR PAST SUPPORT ON THE ORACLE PIECES OF LEGISLATION THAT WE JUST PASSED RELATED TO THIS. WE HAVE ONE ITEM TO ADDRESS. UNDER THE LEGISLATURE, STILL ON THE BOOKS. WE DO HAVE CONFLICTING SETS OF POLICIES ON THE BOOKS. WE WANT TO STRIKE THE ORIGINAL PROVISIONS, SO WHEN THE FOUR PIECES OF LEGISLATION ARE SIGNED INTO LAW, THERE IS NO CONFLICT. WITH THAT, WE RECOMMEND THE PASSAGE OF THE BILL 119654, AS SUGGESTED BY THE WORKERS RIGHTS COMMITTEE. >>THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER. ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS ON THIS LEGISLATION? >>THANK YOU, COUNCIL MEMBER. YOU’VE DONE A GREAT JOB. >>THANK YOU, PLEASE CALL ROLE. SEVEN IN FAVOR, NONE OPPOSED. >>PLEASE READ THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM. >>AGENDA ITEM FOUR. MULTIFAMILY HOUSING PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTION PROGRAM, IT WILL PASS AS AMENDED. >>THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT. WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY OF UPDATING THIS EVERY FOUR YEARS. WE HAD THREE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THIS, AND THE STAKEHOLDERS OVER THE LAST COUPLE MONTHS. THE PROGRAM IS A FIXTURE OF THE AFFORDABLE HOUSING DEAL, AIMED AT INCENTIVIZING OR CREATING MORE MIDDLE INCOME HOUSING FOR TAX-EXEMPT DEVELOP. THIS IS A VOLUNTARY PROGRAM THAT THE CITY IS AUTHORIZED TO ADMINISTER UNDERSTATE PROVISIONS. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT IN EXCHANGE FOR THE TAX EXEMPTION, NO PROJECT IS REQUIRED TO SET ASIDE A PORTION OF UNITS, TWO FAMILIES MAKING 60% OF THE MEDIAN AREA INCOME. AS WE HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO LOOK AT THE LEGISLATION IN LIGHT OF THE CHANGING DEMOGRAPHICS AND INCREASING POPULATION SIZE, WE TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY TO ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT WE COULD DO TO IMPROVE THE INCENTIVES AND MAKE IT MORE AFFORDABLE. AND TO MAKE IT TRULY WORTH THE PUBLIC AND IF IT OF FORGOING THOSE TAX DOLLARS. HERE IS SOMETHING THAT WE DID IN THIS LEGISLATION BASED ON DATA AND FEEDBACK FROM STAKEHOLDERS. WE KNEW THAT THE REGION HAD INCREASING POPULATION, ESPECIALLY AMONG FOLKS WHO WERE MAKING HIGH WAGE INCOMES. WE KNOW THAT THOSE INCOMES HAVE SKEWED THE AREA MEDIAN INCOME IN THE AREA, MEANING SOMEBODY WHO USED TO BE 65% OF THE AREA MEDIAN INCOME LAST YEAR WAS ACTUALLY MAKING THE EXACT SAME AMOUNT, WHAT BUT MAKING 60% OF THE AREA MEDIAN INCOME NOW. THIS IS IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER WHEN WE THINK ABOUT WE ARE TRYING TO INCENTIVIZE INCENTIVIZE THESE UNITS FOR. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS TOOL IS GENERATING MORE AFFORDABLE UNITS FOR MIDDLE INCOME HOUSEHOLDS. WE DID GO THROUGH A ROBUST PROCESS TALKING WITH PRIVATE AND NONPROFIT DEVELOPMENT IN THE COMMUNITY AND WORKING WITH LABOR AND HOUSING ADVOCATES TO IDENTIFY WAYS TO BETTER CALIBRATE THE INCENTIVE THAT WE ARE OFFERING IN THE PROGRAM WITH OUR GOALS OF CREATING MORE AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS. AND DIFFERENT SIZE UNITS IN THE MARKET. THERE ARE THINGS THAT WE HAVE COOPERATED BASED ON DECISIONS WITH RADAR, HOUSING, AND MARKET RATE DEVELOPERS. WE WORKED WITH CENTRAL STAFF WE FOUND AN OPPORTUNITY TO SLIGHTLY LOWER THE AFFORDABILITY THRESHOLD FOR SOME UNIT SIZES. SO ONE BEDROOMS AND STUDIOS HAVE MORE INCENTIVE TO BE AFFORDABLE OR OUR COMMUNITY. OUR ANALYSTS ARE WORKING OVER MONTHS TO INDICATE THAT THIS CHANGE WOULD NOT HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON PARTICIPATION IN THE PROGRAM. WE ARE WORKING WITH PARTNERS ON THIS LEGISLATION. WE WANT TO DO MORE BUT THERE ARE SOME LIMITATIONS ON WHAT WE CAN DO AT THE CITY LEVEL. WE HAVE INCLUDED A NOD TO POTENTIAL FUTURE LABOR STANDARD CHANGES THAT MAY HAVE BEEN AT THE STATE LEVEL. HERE WE HAVE DIRECTED THE OFFICE OF HOUSING TO REPORT ANY CHANGES INCLUDING LABOR STANDARDS ACT THE STATE LEVEL INCLUDING RECOMMENDED POLICY STRUCTURES, DIRECTING LABOR EQUITY GOALS, SO WE CAN BETTER UNDERSTAND THE LABOR DYNAMICS OF THE PROGRAM AND HOW MANY FOLKS ARE GETTING LIVING WAGE JOBS ON THIS PROGRAM. WE WISH OUR FRIENDS LUCK AT THE STATE LEVEL, FOR EXAMPLE ON PREVAILING WAGES AND THAT IS NOT IMPORTANT IN THIS LEGISLATION AT THIS POINT. FINALLY HAVE UPDATED THE ANNUAL REPORTING REQUIREMENTS, TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE THE CITY COUNCIL GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING AND MORE FREQUENT INFORMATION ABOUT CHANGES IN THE MARKET, SO WE CAN DO A BETTER JOB OF RESPONDING NOT JUST EVERY FOUR YEARS, BUT ONGOING, TWICE PER YEAR. WE GET THE ANALYSIS OF THE HOUSING MARKET CONDITIONS AND RECOMMEND POLICY CHANGES, ESPECIALLY IF THERE IS A SIGNIFICANT DOWNTURN OR A TURN. DEMOGRAPHIC DATA, AND LOOKING AT WHO IS LIVING IN OUR UNITS, TO BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW WE ARE SERVING OUR GOAL OF CREATING MORE EQUITABLE, AFFORDABLE AND INCLUSIVE HOUSING HOUSING. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THE TAX DOLLARS ARE GOING TO THE PUBLIC GOOD. THAT CONCLUDES MY REMARKS, MR. PRESIDENT. >>RUSSIANS OR COMMENTS? IF NOT, PLEASE GO TO ROLL CALL. PASSAGE OF THE BILL. COUNCIL MEMBERS? SEVEN IN FAVOR, NONE OPPOSED. >>I HOPE WE CAN REVISIT FIVE, SIX, AND SEVEN. >>I’M SURE YOU CAN DO THAT.
