PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE

Director Eric Mar led the Board of Directors in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.

PUBLIC COMMENT

Alex Tonisson, International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers, Local No. 21, discussed fairness and equity at the bargaining table, and provided Board members with a written legal opinion regarding vesting rights. He stated that the District cannot take away the rights of current retirees and employees who are already vested in healthcare.

Nancy MacLean, Inlandboatmens Union of the Pacific, stated that the Union has informed her that the District wishes to cancel her Blue Shield medical insurance. She stated that she would lose three doctors, all of whom accept Medicare, if Blue Shield is cancelled. She requested that the District not eliminate Blue Shield without providing a comparable substitute.

Cleveland Prince, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local No. 856, stated that fairness should be extended to all employees in the same fashion. Some represented employees now work under a five-year contract. Those working without a contract are being asked to give up more benefits than employees with a contract. Similarly, retirees expect their benefits to remain stable after retirement. Employees have earned their rights to medical benefits. He requested that the District work fairly in negotiating a new contract.

Rene Alvarado, Inlandboatmens Union of the Pacific, stated his appreciation for his job. He added that the District has demonstrated fairness regarding race and gender, and has provided good benefits. He requested that the District “meet us half way” regarding benefits.

Ernest Leep, Marine Engineer’s Beneficial Association, District No. 1-PCD, stated that he represents Vessel Masters. He stated that the concessions being asked of Union members are not equitable with other contracts that have been recently signed.

Jim Hardy, International Federation of Professional and Technical Engineers, Local No. 21, discussed medical care needed by his son that he could not have afforded without the medical insurance provided by the District. He stated his agreement with the previous speakers, and indicated he loves the Golden Gate Bridge and loves working for the District.

Ralph Miranda, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local No. 624, stated that he represents approximately 2,000 Union members in two bargaining units, Bus Servicers and Lane Workers. He indicated that Union members are dissatisfied with negotiations, do not wish to share in the cost of healthcare premiums, do not wish to be restricted in their choice of physicians, and do not wish retirement benefits to change. He indicated that a fair and equitable agreement must be reached.

Wayne Reed, Ironworkers Local No. 377, stated he has worked for the District 20 years, and feels fortunate and proud of his job, as do his family members. He pointed out that employees are happy to perform their assigned tasks. He requested that the District address issues of increased cost and changes for new hires as soon as possible.

Phil Yberrdaza, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Local No. 624, stated that neither equity nor fairness has been reflected at the bargaining table and that the Union negotiators have demonstrated a greater interest in coming to an agreement than has the District.

Frank McMurray, Inlandboatmens Union of the Pacific, stated his work as a Deckhand for the Ferry Transit Division includes being a first responder, for which he and other Deckhands drill monthly. He stated that he has rescued four people from the Bay since he became employed by the District. He opined that the District is unfair in its approach to negotiations. Union negotiators have offered savings greater than requested by the District. Now, even greater concessions are being proposed by the District, without acknowledgement of concessions already made. Outdoor employees work hard, often in inclement weather, and some become disabled as a result. When they retire, they must be able to depend upon their medical benefits.

Dave Gossman, International Union of Operating Engineers, Local No. 3, discussed concerns of Patrol Officers and the role of the security unit. He related his background with the Los Angeles Police Department, and as a supervisor for a large San Francisco security firm. He opined that, while safety is purported to be a top priority of the District, its efforts to prevent suicides does not reflect it. He stated that officers in vehicles are allowed to stop to help a stalled vehicle, but are not allowed to stop if a possible suicide attempt is observed. He provided an example, stating that the event could be seen on camera, and that the man ultimately jumped. He concluded by stating that the video system on the Bridge is inadequate.

Rafael Cabrera, Transport Workers Union of America, Local No. 250-A, stated that Union members wish solutions, but the District is not listening. He requested that, when negotiating, the District take into account the human factor. He stated that District is exhibiting unfairness in trying to gain control of benefits employees have worked for. He discussed the District’s position regarding eliminating the jobs of Toll Collectors, requested that District negotiators put themselves into the shoes of the employees.

Marina Secchitano, Inlandboatmens Union of the Pacific, stated that wage diversion is acceptable because it is already being done by Bus Operators. The District’s proposal that medical benefits reductions be agreed to exceeds what the Amalgamated Transit Union has agreed to. She indicated that cost information has been requested. She stated that it should be easy for seniors to access medical care.

PowerPoint Presentation by Skip Sowko, District Division Chief, Design South, California Department of Transportation (Caltrans)

At the meeting, Mr. Sowko gave a PowerPoint Presentation (PowerPoint) entitled “Re-Envisioning Doyle Drive/Presidio Parkway – Project Update.”

The PowerPoint provided a project overview, and listed project partners. Several photographs displayed the project setting, and a map showed the project location. A construction schedule indicated that major construction began in December 2009, Phase 1 is nearly complete and Phase 2 is now beginning and encompasses the balance of the project schedule. The project is expected to be complete by 2015.

Detailed photographs displayed work taking place during Phase 1 on the Highway 101/Highway 1 Interchange and the southbound Battery tunnel, roof, west and east portals. A temporary bypass at the Marina/Lombard intersection was shown.

Caltrans plans a weekend closure of Doyle Drive for late 2011. The PowerPoint included a closure overview video, which displayed before and after visual information. The closure is necessary in order to demolish existing Doyle Drive and complete remaining construction efficiently and to achieve seismic safety. Major delays may be expected on the Golden Gate Bridge, on Park Presidio/19th Avenue, on Richardson/Lombard Streets, and along Marina Boulevard and Mason Street. The PowerPoint noted that a dramatic visual change will occur as elevated portions of Doyle Drive are demolished.

Key Phase 2 traffic measures will shift traffic onto the completed bridge/tunnel/ temporary bypass until the project is complete. Drivers may experience delays while adjusting to the new driving configuration, which will include 5 lanes with a moveable median barrier and bi-directional traffic on completed southbound bridge and in the southbound tunnel.

The PowerPoint provided a list of key outreach elements and information about initial outreach efforts. Caltrans plans to flood the public with weekend closure information, using several methods during the four week period prior to the closure. Two weeks prior to the closure, more intensive efforts will take place, such as public service announcements and online newspaper ads. The PowerPoint concluded by providing a map showing regional and local detour routes.

     
  b.

Discussion by Board Members

Discussion ensued, including the following comments and inquiries:

  • Director Moylan inquired as to whether the moveable median barrier will be compatible with the one planned for the Bridge. In response, Mr. Mulligan stated that the Caltrans moveable median barrier is temporary and will be removed. Several parts are not compatible with the District’s unit.
  • Director Stroeh commented that he wishes to compliment Caltrans staff and others who have participated in this project, and added that this is an example of engineering excellence.
  • Director Boro made the following inquiries:
    • He inquired as to the dates of the Doyle Drive closure. In response, Mr. Sowko stated that the closure will take place by the end of 2011, but exact dates remain to be determined.
    • He inquired as to the number of lanes that will be available for drivers passing through the tunnel at Lombard. In response, Mr. Sowko stated that, on the detour, there will be two lanes in each direction.
  • Director Cochran inquired as to what is planned for the airspace above the pet cemetery. In response, Mr. Sowko stated that the girders will be removed.
  • Second Vice President Grosboll made the following inquiries:
    • He inquired as to the target completion date. In response, Mr. Sowko stated that the project is scheduled to be completed in 2015.
    • He inquired as to whether drivers would be routed to a temporary roadway once the existing roadway has been torn down. In response, Mr. Sowko stated that drivers will use a permanent roadway, and will pass through one tunnel. Eventually, the roadway will be three lanes across, with wide shoulders in two tunnels.
    • He inquired as to whether the view shed will be improved once the project is complete. Mr. Sowko responded affirmatively.
  • Director Theriault inquired as to the number of feet of roadway that will be demolished during the Doyle Drive weekend closure. In response, Mr. Sowko stated that the entire existing roadway will not be demolished. Instead, only two sections of roadway that are incompatible will be removed.
     
17. Status Report on the FY 09/10 Financial Plan for Achieving Long-Term Financial Stability
     
  a.

Staff Report

In a memorandum to the Board, Auditor-Controller Joseph Wire and General Manager Denis Mulligan presented a status report on the FY 09/10 Financial Plan for Achieving Long-Term Financial Stability (Plan).The staff report provided background on the Board’s process to create the Plan, development of the Plan’s criteria and guiding principles, set forth in Attachment A to the staff report, and the objectives of the Plan. An updated Plan, including the current status of each Initiative, was included as Attachment B to the staff report.

The staff report supplied information regarding the effects of Plan implementation, stating that, over the last three years, the projected deficit for the years FY 10/11 – FY 14/15 was reduced by $132 Million in 2009, $68 million in 2010, and $44 million in 2011. The Plan covered the years FY 10/11 – FY 19/20 with the District’s first Initiatives being completed in FY 09/10.

     
  b.

Presentation of Status Report by Auditor-Controller

At the meeting, Mr. Wire briefly introduced the status report, stating that 2008 had been a difficult year and presented financial challenges. The Board, by Resolution No. 2009-090 at its meeting of October 30, 2009, approved the Plan, to assure long-term financial stability for the District. Goals of the Plan were to achieve financial security and structure a District work plan that would be updated, reviewed and approved by the Board annually.

He reported that the Board, at its meeting of October 22, 2010, reviewed the Plan line by line, comparing total actual results with total projections at that time. The Board directed that several projects be deferred, but made no other revisions to the Plan. He stated that, if everything proceeds as planned, the District’s budget deficit will have been eliminated by the end of five years.

He reported that the Plan has been updated since October 22, 2010, by including information that has changed as a result of Initiatives having been completed. Initiatives have not been renumbered, although some have been completed and some have changed slightly. In addition, titles have been retained. Revised totals have not been included for those Initiatives that are currently in process. Initiatives that have been completed or deferred also retain their respective numbers but are not iterated in the status report.

Mr. Wire reviewed each Initiative, following which Board discussion took place.

     
  c.

Discussion by the Board

Discussion took place, including the following comments and inquiries:

  • Director Snyder made the following inquiries:
    • He inquired as to whether deferred items have been included in line items for future initiatives. Mr. Wire responded in the negative, adding that deferred items are shown separately.
    • He inquired as to whether Initiative #6, “Replace Existing Ferry Terminal Gangways and Piers,” will obviate the need to have employees carry bicycles up and/or down stairs when passengers are disembarking. Mr. Mulligan responded affirmatively, adding that this project will modernize ferry terminal gangways and piers, and assure they are consistent with current requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
    • He inquired as to the efficiencies expected from implementing Initiative #10, “Generally Reduce Bus Budget.” In response, Mr. Mulligan stated that efficiencies will be gained from both greater use of scheduling software and from service reductions. He added that the District continually assesses service efficiency and adds, alters, reduces or eliminates service as necessary.
    • He inquired, regarding Initiatives #28, “Toll Increase to Occur 5 Years After Last Increase,” and Initiative #29, “Annual Small Increment Toll Increase Program,” as to whether the first automatic increase would occur in 2015. In response, Mr. Mulligan stated that the District’s financial condition at that time will help determine whether indexed toll increases should be implemented, or whether alternate action should be taken. Mr. Wire added that indexing would maintain the status quo. It will be necessary to eliminate the deficit prior to adopting a method to maintain status quo. He concluded by stating that, once All Electronic Tolling has been operating for a period of time, details regarding its performance and efficiency will be available for use in further financial projections.
    • He inquired as to when regular 5% increases were first implemented for bus fares. In response, Mr. Wire stated that 5% increases were first implemented in approximately 2004. Prior to that time, increases were tied to the Consumer Price Index.
  • Director Stroeh made the following inquiries and comment:
    • He inquired, regarding Initiative #32, “Close Satellite Bus Yard,” as to whether the Novato or Santa Rosa bus facilities land was purchased with federal funds. Mr. Mulligan responded that federal funds were used to purchase parts of both.
    • He inquired as to whether difficulties would exist in closing or selling these facilities. In response, Mr. Mulligan stated there would be no difficulty in closing a facility, but there are restrictions on how the funds can be used. If you dispose of an asset that was acquired using federal funds, the funds must be used toward other federal activities. The funds would not be available for inclusion in the District’s Operating Budget.
    • He inquired as to whether the District could lease the property out on a long-term basis. In response, Mr. Mulligan stated that the District could, if it could be established that the facility would be needed by the District for transit purposes.
    • He inquired as to whether the Chart on page 13 includes the amount owed for the Doyle Drive Reconstruction. Mr. Wire responded affirmatively.
    • He commented that, at some point, he would like to consider reactivating the Financial Planning Advisory Committee to continue analyzing the District’s financial position.
  • Director Chu made the following comment and inquiry:
    • She commented that staff should be thanked for providing these financial projections.
    • She inquired as to the accuracy of projections made in 2009. In response, Mr. Wire referred her to the graph shown on page 13, stating that there are countless variables within the Initiatives and the larger economy. The current projection indicates the District is expected to have a smaller deficit by 2014 than was predicted in 2009.
  • President Reilly commented that the District is different from other public agencies that were financially challenged because the Board took action after analyzing financial expectations. Difficult decisions were required in order for the District to continue providing a high level of service. She concluded by congratulating Mr. Wire and his staff.
