NOPE.

YON STIER.

NOPE.

UH, KATHY CAN DO SO.

THANK YOU, KATHY.

MELISSA.

I SEE YOU.

THANK YOU, AMANDA.

HELLO, DEBRA.

THANK YOU, EVA.

AND MYSELF AND WE ARE LACKING ONE BODY, ONE BODY AND EYES BEYOND IT MENTIONED.

HE'S GOING TO BE JUST A WEE BIT.

TARDY WAS SORT OF WAITING.

UM, AND I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE, MAYBE THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU PLAN TO TALK ABOUT LATER, JERRY, BUT I WAS JUST WONDERING IF WE COULD, UH, BRIEFLY DISCUSS, UH, GETTING THESE MEETING NOTICES AND INFORMATION SENT TO HER, OUR PERSONAL EMAILS.

I AM NOT ABLE TO LOG INTO TWO MICROSOFT ACCOUNTS AT ONCE ON MY COMPUTER AND MY WORK USES MICROSOFT, SORRY FOR MY BABY, SOME BACKGROUND NOISE HERE.

SO IT'S ACTUALLY SIGNIFICANT IN INDIANS TO AFTER HOURS.

SO WE JUST, YOU KNOW, CAN I PLEASE GET I'M REQUESTING FOR MYSELF FOR THE INFORMATION TO BE SENT YOU MY WORK EMAIL PLEASE? IN FACT, I DID ACTUALLY INCLUDED IN THIS AGENDA AND KEN AND I HAD A BRIEF CHAT ABOUT THIS EARLIER.

I WANT THAT ON THERE, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, WE NEED A FORMAL, A FORMAL EXPLANATION DECISION COMING FROM CITY, CITY HALL, CITY STAFF, AS TO THE YAY OR NAY AND, AND WHETHER OR NOT, UH, YOU KNOW, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS SELECTIVE TO EACH AND EVERY COMMISSION OR IS ITSELF BEING THAT, UH, IS CITYWIDE JUST TO CLARIFICATION ON THAT.

SO WE CAN, WE CAN MAKE A DECISION AND EITHER A INCLUDE THE PERSONAL EMAILS AS WE DID IN THE PAST, OR LEARN HOW TO ADD A LITTLE BIT, JUST THE BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS.

I AGREE WITH IT.

IT'S, IT'S SOMETHING THAT WE REALLY DO NEED TO ADDRESS.

AND AGAIN, THAT'S WHY IT'S ON THE AGENDA AND IF NEED BE, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE CAN MOVE TO.

SORRY, I'LL ADMIT I HAVEN'T EVEN LOOKED AT THE AGENDA.

UM, I'VE BEEN PRETTY UNDERWATER, SO SORRY FOR JUMPING THE GUN.

I WILL WAIT.

NO, NO PROBLEM.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT GUYS.

UH, YON, DID YOU, UH, JOIN US CHAIRING ON IS ON AN ANTENNAE OF THIS.

I CAN ONLY UNMUTE HIM.

SO I THINK THE LINK, IT ENDS ON THE PHONE WITH HIM RIGHT NOW.

I'M TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE ISSUE IS, BUT THAT'S WHERE THAT'S THE STATUS.

SO IS HE KILLED HIS HALF? I'M NOT SURE HOW THAT WORKS SINCE FIVE AND A HALF.

YEAH.

AND THIS IS THE AB TECH.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YES, I CAN HEAR YOU.

OKAY.

I GUESS THAT IF YOU WANT TO LOG OUT AND LOG BACK IN AND TRY TO GET ON THE SCREEN, THAT'S YOUR PREROGATIVE.

BUT I THINK THIS WILL WORK BECAUSE I DON'T WORK AS LONG AS I CAN.

I CAN TALK.

THAT'S FINE.

SO JADA, WE WOULD GO ON THIS, I THINK SO.

CAN YOU HEAR ME? YEAH.

YES, ABSOLUTELY MEASURES.

CAN YOU HEAR ME OKAY.

I THINK WE CAN HEAR IT.

YEAH, I CAN HEAR YOU.

[CALL TO ORDER]

WONDERFUL.

IT LOOKS LIKE WE DO HAVE AN OFFICIAL QUORUM AT 6 0 8 ON, UH, JUNE THE NINTH.

THANK YOU GUYS FOR ATTENDING.

THANK YOU FOR THE PATIENTS.

AND, UH, WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, WE CAN GET MOVING ON THIS.

AND LYNN WITH THE AGENDA IS A PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD AGENDA.

IT'S IT'S A RATHER SHORT AND YOU KNOW, THERE'S A, THERE'S A PURPOSE FOR TONIGHT'S MEETING.

TONIGHT'S A GATHERING.

AND, UH, THE MOST IMPORTANT PORTION OF THIS ARE A COUPLE OF RCAS THAT WE WANTED TO ADDRESS THAT, UH, THAT WE CAN SEND BACK WITH STAFF TO CITY HALL

[00:05:01]

AND THEY WERE INCLUDING LITTLE, THESE, THESE ARE THE CLEANUP AND BEAUTIFICATION AGENDAS.

I'M SORRY, ITEMS THAT, UH, WE HAVE HEARD AND READ ABOUT SO MUCH IN OUR LOCAL NEWS AND THAT ARE DEFINITELY IN NEED OF, OF ADDRESSING.

AND AGAIN, I THANK YOU GUYS FOR PUTTING THESE TOGETHER, BUT THE AGENDA ITSELF, WE STICK TO THE AGENDA.

FIRST ORDER IS A CITIZENS COMMUNICATION, AND I DON'T THINK ANYONE SIGNED UP TO SPEAK.

IS THAT CORRECT STAFF? YES, SIR.

ALL RIGHT.

SO SEEING THAT NO ONE HAS SIGNED UP TO SPEAK.

THE OTHER

[1.APPROVAL of the May 12th, 2021, Regular Meeting Minutes]

ITEM IS THE APPROVAL OF THE MAY 12TH MINUTES AND, UM, I'LL ACCEPT A MOTION ONE WAY OR THE OTHER ON THAT, EXCEPT THE MINUTES FROM LAST MONTH COMMISSION TO GET TO SOME MOVES APPROVAL.

DO I HEAR A SECOND? I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE MINUTES.

I'M JUST CURIOUS ABOUT THE, THE FORMAT.

SO I NOTICED IN THE LAST SEVERAL, WE'VE HAD MORE OF A, A DIRECT TRANSCRIPT.

IS THAT A FUNCTION OF THE FACT THAT WE'RE MEETING ON WEBEX? HOW ARE WE GETTING SUCH A, YOU KNOW, BY WORD, UH, UH, TRANSCRIPT COMPARED TO THE TYPES OF NOTES WE HAD BEFORE, COULD ANYONE AND WE HIRED A COURT STENOGRAPHER.

I DON'T KNOW.

IS THERE A UH, YES.

I PERSONALLY TRANSCRIBED THEM MYSELF AND, UH, I FIGURED THAT THEY NEED TO BE A LOT LENGTHIER AND CAPTURE EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN SAID BECAUSE THERE A LOT THAT IS SAID.

SO IF THAT'S SOMETHING THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE OR THINK ABOUT CHANGING THE FORMAT, WE CAN LOOK AT THAT YOU WOULD JUST NEED TO LET US KNOW.

I MEAN, I THANK YOU.

I THINK IT'S FANTASTIC.

ACTUALLY, I WAS, I WAS THINKING THAT THIS WAS SOMETHING WE WERE GOING TO LOSE.

IF WE GO BACK TO IN PERSON, I ASSUMED IT WAS SOME SORT OF SOFTWARE TRICKS.

SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I REALLY APPRECIATE THE, THE DETAIL OF, I DON'T KNOW HOW THE REST OF THE COMMISSIONERS FEEL, BUT I'M VERY APPRECIATIVE OF IT.

SO THANK YOU FOR THAT.

ABSOLUTELY.

DOES THAT TRANSLATE TO OVERTIME OR DWIGHT? GREAT JOB.

THANK YOU.

BUT WE HAVE A, UH, WE HAVE A MOTION BY KATHY AND A SECOND BY AMANDA.

DO I HEAR ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THIS? THERE ARE NO FURTHER DISCUSSION.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR KIND OF WAVE OR SEND A SIGNAL SOMEHOW SOME WAY.

I'M GOING TO SAY NANUS.

YEAH.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

I RAISED MY HAND.

YES, NOW.

HI.

THANK YOU.

I SEE YOU.

THERE YOU GO, KATIE, BUT THANK YOU.

[2A. Discussion and Action: Multi-family Organic Collection Pilot Rollout —Selene Castillo]

ALL RIGHT GUYS.

OH GOD.

NOT TO MAKE TOO MUCH FUN OUT OF THIS, BUT, UH, THE NEXT ITEM IS A OLD BUSINESS AND THIS IS BASICALLY JUST A, A KIND OF AN UPDATE ON THE MULTIFAMILY, UH, ORGANIC COLLECTION ROLLOUT PROGRAM.

AND I KNOW IT'S BEEN A, IT'S BEEN A CHALLENGING STORE, BUT IT'S GOING, AND I CERTAINLY APPRECIATE THAT.

OKAY.

HI, IT'S JASON MCCONNELL, AUSTIN RESOURCE RECOVERY.

I'M FILLING IN FOR SOLANA AND FOR THE AGENDA, BUT, UH, JUST A BRIEF UPDATE ON THE, UH, MULTI-FAMILY COMPOST PILOT.

WHEN YOU MEET, UM, WE HAVE SIX PROPERTIES RIGHT NOW COMMITTED.

UM, THEY'RE ALL RIGHT.

NOW WITHIN DISTRICTS, NINE, SIX, AND THREE, WE DO HAVE TWO MORE THAT WE'VE BEEN TALKING TO, UM, THAT WE FEEL PRETTY GOOD ABOUT, YOU KNOW, MAYBE YOU GET TO COMMIT HERE IN THE NEAR FUTURE IN DISTRICTS TWO AND EIGHT.

UM, SO THAT PUTS US RIGHT NOW.

WE'VE GOT SIX COMMITTED.

WE'RE GOOD.

CLOSE TO ABOUT EIGHT TOTAL.

UM, WE'VE HAD, UH, ONE, UH, PROPERTY ACTUALLY START, UM, IN COLLEGE COURTS.

IT'S A, IT'S A MULTIFAMILY PROPERTY KIND OF NEAR THE UT CAMPUS AND THEY JUST RECENTLY GOT STARTED.

SO IT'S STILL EARLY, STILL VERY MUCH EARLY IN THE DATA COLLECTION PHASE.

AND WE ARE STILL RECRUITING, UH, PROPERTIES.

UM, WE'D LIKE TO GET, YOU KNOW, AT LEAST 10 PROPERTIES AND HAVE, UH, YOU KNOW, HOPEFULLY ONE IN EVERY DISTRICT IF WE COULD.

BUT, UM, SO WE'LL STILL BE RECRUITING THROUGH AUGUST.

UM, AND, UH, IF YOU, YOU DON'T HAVE ANY LEADS OR WOULD LIKE US TO FOLLOW UP WITH ANY, PLEASE REACH OUT TO ME.

UH, SLEDDING CASTILLO, ELIZABETH NELSON.

I KNOW WE'LL BE HAPPY TO FOLLOW UP.

AWESOME.

THANKS.

THANK YOU, JASON.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR JASON? I DO HAVE A QUESTION.

SO I KNOW THAT, UH, SHAM BOARD, UH, CONDOS WAS ON THE LIST AND THEY HAVE REMOVED THEMSELVES AND I'M FRIENDS WITH THE PRESIDENT OVER THERE.

AND I KNOW THAT THEY ARE, I KNOW THAT SHE IS PERSONALLY VERY COMMITTED.

SHE LITERALLY LIKE WALKED OVER TO MY HOUSE TO DROP FOR COMPOST, UM, IN THEIR ISSUE THAT THEY HAVE IS THAT THEY HAD

[00:10:01]

PIPES BREAK BOTH IN BUILDINGS AND LIKE MORE OF THE DISTRIBUTION LINE, A LOT OF EXCESS MONEY RIGHT NOW.

AND SO A RE-INVESTMENT I'M SO SORRY IS A BARRIER FOR THEM.

SO IF THERE WAS A WAY TO PAY THE BILL DIRECTLY, THEY WOULD PARTICIPATE.

THAT'S INTERESTING.

OKAY.

OKAY.

YEAH.

I MEAN, WE, WE CAN TAKE A LOOK AT THAT.

I THINK, YOU KNOW, WE'VE KIND OF GOT THE PILOT, THE PILOT SYSTEM SET UP THAT WE CAN DEFINITELY TAKE A LOOK AT, YOU KNOW, IF WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO THAT OR NOT, ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW, THERE WOULDN'T BE, I COULD SEE THAT PERHAPS MAYBE INFLUENCING ONE OR TWO OR THREE OR MORE PROPERTIES, IF THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE ASK THEM TO PARTICIPATE IN AND THEY DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT GETTING THAT NASTY BILL AT THE END OF THE MONTH, THAT MIGHT ENCOURAGE ONE OR TWO DIFFERENT PROPERTIES TO PARTICIPATE.

BUT YEAH.

THANK YOU, JASON GROUP, TAKE A LOOK GUYS.

GOOD IDEA.

THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? YEAH.

ALL RIGHT, GUYS.

THANK YOU.

CAISSON THE UPDATE STAFF AND I DO THANK YOU.

[3A. Discussion and Action: Education, Cleanup & Beautification RCA – Victoria Rieger]

MOVE ALONG GUYS.

UH, I GUESS OUR NEXT ITEM IS A NEW BUSINESS AND THEN THE FIRST ITEM ON THERE IS THE, UH, ACTUAL RCA IT'S THAT EDUCATION CLEAN UP AND BEAUTIFICATION RCA.

AND I THINK VICTORIA, YOU WERE GOING TO ADDRESS THAT.

HI.

YES.

CAN YOU HEAR ME OKAY? YES.

GREAT.

CANADIAN COMMISSIONERS, VICTORIA READER, AUSTIN RESOURCE RECOVERY, FINANCE DIVISION MANAGER.

UH, WE FORWARD TO YOU TODAY.

THE RCA DID SEEKING FAVORABLE RECOMMENDATION FOR A MULTITERM CONTRACT WITH BOSTON, BEAUTIFUL TO PROVIDE EDUCATION CLEANUP AND BEAUTIFICATION SERVICES FOR UP TO FIVE YEARS FOR TOTAL CONTRACT AMOUNT, ESTIMATED THAT 1.375 MILLION, AND THAT IS AIR RS PORTION.

THIS IS A MULTI-DEPARTMENT CONTRACT.

UH, WE ARE SHARING IT WITH THE WATERSHED PROTECTION DEPARTMENT.

UH, THEY HAVE SEPARATE SERVICES THAT THEY'VE CONTRACTED FOR WITH TWO DIFFERENT VENDORS.

UH, THE TRAIL FOUND IN ADDITION TO, UM, IN ADDITION TO KEEP AUSTIN BEAUTIFUL.

THEY'VE ALSO ORDERED TO THE TRAIL FOUNDATION AND TREE FOLKS, UH, AND THEIR PORTION OF THE CONTRACT OPTIMIZATION IS 2.6 TO 5 MILLION FOR A TOTAL NOT TO EXCEED $4 MILLION.

SO OUR PORTION OF THE CONTRACT IS $275,000 PER YEAR FOR FIVE YEARS.

AND THAT TOTAL IS THE 1.375 MILLION.

OKAY, WELCOME.

WE WELCOME ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE? UM, SO I, I WAS JUMPING THE GUN.

I APOLOGIZE.

THAT'S OKAY.

SO THE VICTORIA, UM, HI, THIS IS AMANDA.

SO THE ARR PORTION GOES TO KEEP AUSTIN BEAUTIFUL AND WPD GOES TO TREE FOLKS AND TRAIL FOUNDATION.

IS THAT RIGHT? THEY ALSO HAVE A PORTION, UM, THAT WILL GO TO, UM, KEEP AUSTIN BEAUTIFUL, OKAY.

FOR A SPECIFIC SERVICE, BUT YES, SO THEY ARE, THEIR SERVICES ARE SPREAD AMONGST ALL THREE VENDORS WHERE OURS IS JUST WITH KEEP AUSTIN.

BEAUTIFUL.

THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, COMMISSIONERS? UM, WELL, LET'S SEE.

I HAVE TOM IN VICTORIA, UM, AND COMMISSIONERS, UH, WE'VE HAD THE KEEP AUSTIN BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE, UH, TO THEIR COMMISSION BEFORE TO LET US KNOW, YOU KNOW, EXACTLY.

HEY, WHAT THEY'VE DONE IN THIS PAST YEAR.

SO CONTRACT KATHY, I THINK WE'RE LOSING YOU.

CAN YOU HEAR, CAN YOU HEAR ME AT ALL? AND THEN YES, NOW WE CAN.

OKAY.

UM, WHAT I WAS SAYING IN THE PAST, KEEP AUSTIN BEAUTIFUL, UH, REPRESENTATIVE CAME AND LET US TO TELL US ABOUT WHAT THEY'VE DONE IN THE PAST YEAR, AND IT'D BE NICE FOR THEM TO COME BACK AND, AND, UH, GIVE US A LITTLE UPDATE ON, UH, WHAT THEY'RE DOING NOW, WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN DOING, WHAT THEY PLAN TO DO WITH THIS MONEY AS WELL.

THAT'S A GREAT IDEA, ACTUALLY, COMMISSIONERS.

YEAH.

WE COULD MAYBE PUT THAT ON A, UM, AN AGENDA ITEM.

GREAT.

YEAH, I, I ABSOLUTELY HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THAT.

OKAY.

MEASURES ANY OTHER QUESTIONS, THOUGHTS FOR VICTORIA? THIS IS YAWN LOOKING THROUGH.

[00:15:01]

UM, I'M SEEING THAT THE BREAKDOWN OF WHAT IT'S GONNA LOOK LIKE IN THE FUTURE.

AND JUST WONDERING AGAIN, IF IT'S POSSIBLE TO START TO SEE KIND OF PAST COMPARISONS, JUST TO SEE HOW THE GROWTH OF THE CITY AND THE CAPABILITIES, HOW THAT'S IMPACTING SOME OF THESE, UM, THESE PROPOSALS.

AND OF COURSE, YOU KNOW, THAT KIND OF ALLOWS US IF WE'RE SEEING A STEEP INCREASE, JUST TO UNDERSTAND WHERE THAT MONEY IS GOING.

OKAY.

I'M CLEAR ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE ASKING.

ARE YOU WANTING TO SEE, UM, WHAT WE'VE SPENT TO KEEP AUSTIN BEAUTIFUL OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS OR JUST OVER BEAUTIFICATION? YEAH.

WELL, YES, I GUESS IN TERMS OF BEAUTIFICATION AND POTENTIALLY YES.

KEEP ON ASKING BEAUTIFUL IN PARTICULAR, UM, IN THE PAST AS WELL AS GOING FORWARD.

SO IF THAT'S OKAY, IF THAT INFORMATION TO YOU, I DON'T HAVE THAT IN FRONT OF ME.

YEAH.

WE CAN PROBABLY COMBINE THAT YARNS CONCERNS WITH KATHY'S FOR A FUTURE PRESENTATION, PERHAPS AT OUR NEXT MEETING WITH KEY BOSTON.

BEAUTIFUL YON.

IS THAT OKAY? I MEAN, WOULD THAT WORK? ABSOLUTELY.

ABSOLUTELY.

WELL, I HAVE A QUESTION ISN'T, I GUESS IT'S, IT'S CONNECTED TO THIS, THAT WE, AS A MISSION, UM, ARUSHA WAS PROBABLY THE BETTER PART OF TWO YEARS AGO NOW PASSED A RESOLUTION THAT WAS SUPPORTING THIS KIND OF WORK, UH, DEALING WITH, UH, PLASTIC LITTER IN THE CREEKS AND ALL OF THAT.

UM, AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I KNOW WAS IN THAT RESOLUTION WAS LOOKING AT A, UH, TRASH WHEEL OR TOWN LAKE, AND I SAY TRASH WHEEL WITH, YOU KNOW, CHERISH WHEEL OR WHEELS FOR TOWN.

AND, UM, I'M CERTAINLY NOT OPPOSED TO THIS CONTRACT, AND I'M NOT SAYING THE TRASH WHEEL IS AN ALTERNATIVE, BUT, UM, IT, IT IS HARD I THINK, OR COULD BE PART OF THE SOLUTION.

UM, AND SO I'M WONDERING IF THAT IS SOMETHING THAT'S BEEN INVESTIGATED.

STEP COMMISSIONER.

I CAN TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, AND THEN STAFF CAN CHIME IN WITH MORE HISTORY, BUT WHEN I FIRST ARRIVED, THERE WAS TALK OF A TRASH WHEEL RIGHT BEFORE THE PANDEMIC REALLY SET IN.

UM, AND AT THAT TIME, UM, WE WERE, UM, WORKING AND HAVING CONVERSATIONS WITH WATERSHED PROTECTION ABOUT THAT.

UM, SO WE HAVEN'T, I'LL JUST TELL YOU, WE HAVEN'T MOVED VERY FAR IN THAT SPACE.

WHAT WE HAVE DONE IS WE, WE'RE DOING MORE WORK ON THE, UH, THE PREVENTION PIECE OF THAT.

SO KEEPING THE MATERIALS OUT OF THE CREPES, UM, AS YOU MAY REMEMBER, WE RECENTLY PULLED TOGETHER A TEAM OF FOLKS THAT WILL NOW WORK IN THE WATERSHEDS TO PULL PLASTICS LITTER.

I KNOW THERE'S DEBRIS OUT OF THOSE CREEKS.

SO, UM, IT'S NOT THAT WE WON'T CONTINUE TO LOOK AT IT.

I WOULD JUST SAY IT JUST LOST A LITTLE BIT OF STEAM DURING THE PANDEMIC.

UM, BUT IN THAT TIME WE HAVE, UH, FILLED OUT THE TEAM THAT WILL BE WORKING IN THE CREEKS TO REMOVE THAT PLASTIC AND DEBRIS.

THANK YOU.

I DO APPRECIATE THAT.

AND OBVIOUSLY PREVENTING THE LITTER FROM IT SHOULD BE OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY.

UM, I'M JUST BEING REALISTIC IN THE, UM, YOU KNOW, THERE'S THE, THE MAGNITUDE OF THE PROBLEM IS, IS PRETTY SIGNIFICANT.

AND SO I THINK WE'RE, WE'RE UNLIKELY TO CATCH IT ALL.

AND SO IT'S PROBABLY A, UH, A BOTH KIND OF APPROACH, UM, ASSUMING THAT'S FEASIBLE.

AND SO I WOULD JUST ENCOURAGE THAT TO SEE ANOTHER RCA COME TO US OR THAT ADDITIONAL PIECE OF THE SOLUTION.

UH, RICHARD, WERE YOU GOING TO ADD SOMETHING TO THAT? UM, MAYBE A HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE ON IT.

UM, CAN Y'ALL HEAR ME? YES.

OKAY, GREAT.

YEAH, I TRIED TO SAY SOMETHING EARLIER AND THAT, I GUESS IT DIDN'T GET THROUGH, UM, RICHARD MCKELL DEPUTY DIRECTOR FOR AUSTIN RESOURCE RECOVERY, I WILL SAY.

UM, WE DID LIKE A REPRESENTATIVE FROM WATERSHED TO BE ON THE CALL, UM, JOHN CLEMSON, AND HE MAY BE ABLE TO TALK TO, UH, ISSUES SURROUNDING, UH, A LOT OF REAL AND OTHER SOLUTIONS THAT THEY MAY HAVE.

SO I DON'T, I DON'T KNOW JOHN, IF YOU'RE ABLE TO, TO ADDRESS THAT, UH, I, CAN'T SORRY ABOUT I'M LOSING MY VOICE, BUT, UH, I CAN'T DIRECTLY ADDRESS THAT.

UH, I, I HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF BACKGROUND ON IT, UH, BUT MY FOCUS IS ON THE STEWARDSHIP PROGRAMS, UH, THAT ARE, UH, WRAPPED UP IN THIS PACKAGE.

MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT LOGISTICALLY IT WOULD BE VERY CHALLENGING AND THE, UH, UM, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE FOCUSED FOR EXAMPLE, UM, SHOAL CREEK OR SOMETHING SIMILAR LIKE THAT, UH, GETTING IT IN

[00:20:01]

PLACE AND DEALING WITH POTENTIAL, UH, ADVERSE IMPACTS FROM FLOODING OR MAKING SURE IT'S SECURE.

THERE'S A LOT OF ENGINEERING THAT WOULD BE INVOLVED.

AND WE DO HAVE, UH, WE'RE WORKING WITH ERR ON, UM, IDENTIFYING LOCATIONS FOR CLEAN CREEK CREW AND, UH, SEEING WHERE THEY CAN BEST BE PUT TO WORK.

WE HAVE LIST OF PRIORITIES FROM THE PARKS DEPARTMENT.

YOU KNOW, SOME OF THE PARKS HAD BEEN HEAVILY IMPACTED, UH, AND JUST FROM THE FIELD OF WORK THAT WE DO, WE'VE ALSO BEEN INVENTORYING LOCATIONS.

UH, SO WE'RE HOPING THAT, UH, BETWEEN THE STEWARDSHIP OR THAT WE DO, UM, WITH OUR VOLUNTEER PARTNERS AND CLEAN CREEK CREW AND THE OTHER CONTRACTS WE HAVE IN PLACE FOR APP CLEANUPS AND WORKING WITH THE OTHER ONES FOUNDATION, UM, AND ESPECIALLY WITH COVID EASING AND WITH THESE VOLUNTEER PROGRAMS AND GETTING CLEAN LADY, BIRD LAKE, UH, ACTIVE AGAIN, THAT THINGS SHOULD BETTER.

THANK YOU, JEN.

ANY QUESTIONS I GUESS? UM, I W I WANTED TO APPRECIATE SOME MORE DETAIL IN THE FUTURE.

UH, YOU KNOW, IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE AT THIS MEETING, BUT, UM, YOU KNOW, I, I'VE JUST, I KNOW IT'S WORKING IN OTHER PLACES.

AND SO IF THERE'S SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT OUR SITUATION, I WOULD LIKE, I GUESS, A PRESENTATION, YOU KNOW, DETAILS.

WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT LADY BIRD, LIKE COMPARED TO THE OTHER CITIES THAT ARE SUCCESSFULLY, UH, DEPLOYING AND TRASH WHEELS.

AND, UM, YOU KNOW, NOT SAYING THAT THERE'S NOT CHALLENGES AND JUST HIT HER EVERY TIME.

I, AND I REALIZED THAT SOME OF THESE THINGS AREN'T RAMPED UP YET, BUT, UM, YOU KNOW, ONE OFF CLEANUP EVENTS ARE, UH, THEY DON'T THINK THEY'RE, THEY'RE NOT GONNA CUT IT.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONER.

ANY OTHER THOUGHTS, CONCERNS FOR JOHN OR RICHARD? THANK YOU, RICHARD.

THANK YOU, JOHN, FOR SPENDING SOME TIME WITH US COMMISSIONERS, UH, ANY OF THE THOUGHTS FROM VICTORIA ON THIS ITEM, THEN I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION.

WELL, I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE THE MOTION TO ACCEPT THIS COMMISSIONER.

GOOD TO SO MOVES TO ACCEPTANCE.

AND I HEAR A SECOND.

I'M SORRY.

THERE WAS, YEAH, THAT WAS ME.

COMMISSIONER WHITE SECONDS.

ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THIS, HEARING THAT ALL THOSE IN FAVOR DO SOMETHING WAY.

YAY.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

I'M GUESSING THAT THIS IS UNANIMOUS.

THANK YOU, COMMISSIONERS.

[3B. Discussion and Action: Underpass Camp Cleanups Contract Reauthorization RCA – Victoria Rieger and Richard McHale]

I'M MOVE IT ALONG HERE.

THE NEXT ITEM IS THE UNDERPASS CAMP CLEANUP CONTRACT AND REAUTHORIZATION RCA.

AND I THINK THIS IS A VICTORIA IN RICHARD'S EXPLAINING, OKAY.

THERE ARE SEEKING FAVORABLE RECOMMENDATION FOR ANOTHER MULTITERM, UH, CONTRACT WITH RELIEF ENTERPRISES TO PROVIDE CLEANUP SERVICES UNDER OVERPASSES, UNDER BRIDGES AND IN THE TRANSPORTATION RIGHT AWAY FOR TWO YEARS IN THE AMOUNT OF 1.1, 5 MILLION, UH, THIS COMMISSION PRIMACY APPROVED THIS ITEM WHEN WE BROUGHT IT, UH, BEFORE YOU ON JULY 17TH, 2020, IT SUBSEQUENTLY SUBSEQUENTLY WENT TO COUNCIL, OH, I'M DELIGHTED, 29TH, 2020, UH, WHERE THEY APPROVED A ONE-YEAR CONTRACT, UH, WITH THE EXPECTATION, THE ITEM RETURNED TO COUNCIL, UH, FOR FUTURE AUTHORIZATIONS.

AND THAT'S WHAT THIS ITEM IS DOING.

UH, THIS CONTRACTOR WILL ALLOW THE CITY TO CONTINUE THESE CRITICAL CLEANUP SERVICES TO PROVIDE A CLEAN AND SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR RESIDENTS EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS.

AND WE WILL TAKE ANY QUESTIONS THAT YOU HAVE.

THANK YOU, VICTORIA.

KATHY, GO AHEAD.

UH, PICTORIAL WORD, BUT THE BAN IS ON CAMPING.

DO WE NEED THIS FOR UP TILL 2023? UH, IF I CAN ANSWER THAT, UM, RICHARD MAKINO DEPUTY DIRECTOR PREY RR.

UM, WE DO HAVE THE BAND, BUT WE STILL FEEL THAT WE DO NEED THIS CONTRACT CAN BE AMENDED.

UM, UH, IF WE GO TO THREE 50 PERSON OFFICE, I CAN TALK WITH THE VENDOR SO WE CAN AMEND THE LOCATION.

SO EVEN THOUGH THERE MAY BE A BAN, UM, IN PUBLIC AREAS, THERE'S STILL GOING TO BE FOLKS THAT ARE OUT THERE, CAMPING BARKS, AND IN OTHER AREAS EXPOSED, SKILLED, UNNECESSARY POOL FOR US TO HAVE A, AS WE ADDRESS THESE, BECAUSE WE KNOW THE PROBLEM'S NOT GOING AWAY, JUST A BAN.

NO.

SO IT DOESN'T NECESSARILY NEED TO BE, UH, OVERPASSES OR UNDER BRIDGES.

IS THAT RIGHT? OR THE RIGHT OF WAY? UH, CURRENTLY IT'S

[00:25:01]

MAINLY THAT, UM, THERE IS OTHER AREAS THAT ARE RIGHTS OF WAY.

IF WE HAVE SOME MAJOR CHANGES TO THE CONTRACT, WE WOULD DEFINITELY HAVE TO GO TO THE PURCHASING PROCESS TO AMEND THE CONTRACT, TO MAKE SURE THAT THE VENDORS ARE OKAY WITH THE ADDITIONAL WORK AND POTENTIALLY, UH, DIFFERENT LOCATIONS.

UM, BUT IT IS SOMETHING THAT WE DO ALL THE TIME.

AND I HAVE TO AGREE WITH RICHARD.

I MEAN, THIS IS NOT GOING TO GO AWAY.

THIS IS GOING TO GO INTO HIDING AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO CHASE IT.

SO THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR RICHARD OR, OR STAFF VICTORIA? ALRIGHT, HERE, I KNOW THE QUESTIONS.

I'LL ENTERTAIN A MOTION ON THE SIGN OF APPROVAL.

I HEAR A SECOND HERE A SECOND.

I'M SORRY, KATHY.

I'M SORRY.

CAN I HAVE A SECOND? I GUYS, ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THE ITEM HEARING? NO FURTHER DISCUSSION.

ALL THOSE IN FAVOR AGAIN, RAISE YOUR HAND OR SIGNIFY.

SO THAT'S, I, IT LOOKS LIKE THIS IS A UNANIMOUS ITEM ALSO.

THANK YOU, RICHARD VICTORIA, STAFF FOR THE UPDATES AND SUPPORT.

THANK YOU GUYS.

[3C. Discussion and Action: Boards and Commissions Website use – Gerry Acuna]

I'VE MADE THE RIGHT ALONG.

THE NEXT ITEM IS ITEM THREE C AND THIS IS THIS.

THIS IS KIND OF A, UH, A MOVING TARGET ITEM.

IT'S THE, UH, I GUESS A DISCUSSION ON, ON THE USE OF OUR PERSONAL EMAIL INFORMATION OR TO PARTICIPATE IN BOARDS AND COMMISSION BUSINESS, IF THAT MAKES ANY SENSE.

AND I KNOW WE'VE ASKED SOME CONVERSATIONS UP UNTIL A FEW MONTHS AGO, THAT WAS FROM PERMITTED FOR US TO USE PERSONAL BASKETBALL TO TODAY.

THAT'S CURRENTLY NOT, NOT ALLOWED MY QUESTIONS ARE, CAN WE GET A FORMAL PRESENTATION AND OR DECISION BY EITHER A CITY STAFF CITY CLERK'S OFFICE OR LEGAL THAT WOULD HELP US, UH, BUT THIS DRESS ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.

AND LITERALLY JUST A BETTER IDEA OF THIS IS AGAIN, A SELECTED ITEM THAT, UH, ONE COMMISSION CAN DECIDE THAT THEY WANT TO USE STRICTLY BOARDS AND COMMISSION SITES VERSUS ANOTHER COMMISSION WHO DECIDES THAT A PERSONAL EMAIL ALONG WITH WARDS AND COMMISSION SITES IS PERMISSIBLE, BUT THEN THE LAST WE CAN GET A FORMAL, FORMAL, UH, DISCUSSION GOING WITH THE CITY CLERK, LEGAL STAFF.

THAT WOULD BE WONDERFUL WITH THIS WHATSAPP SHARE.

WE HAVE MYRNA RIOS ON THE LINE WHO CAN MAYBE ANSWER A FEW, IF YOU WANT TO SHARE SOME OF THOSE WITH HER.

THANK YOU.

YES, WE CAN.

THANK YOU, MYRNA.

HI, MY NAME IS MARINA .

I'M THE DEPUTY CITY CLERK.

UM, AND I HAVE BEEN ON, UH, BEFORE THE MEETING STARTED, AND I KNOW THERE WAS A QUESTION THAT CHAIR, YOU MEANT YOU WERE ASKING IF THE RULES ARE SELECTIVE OR NOT.

AND, UM, RESPONSE TO THAT, UM, INQUIRY ARE, THE RULES ARE NOT SELECTIVE.

THEY ARE CITYWIDE.

UM, WE RECOGNIZE THAT HAVING A SEPARATE EMAIL ACCOUNT CAN BE A CHALLENGE TO MANAGE.

UM, BUT WE HAVE, UH, WE MUST ENFORCE THE RULES.

UM, WHEN ALL MEMBERS FIRST ARE APPOINTED AND YOU ATTENDED THE TRAINING, UM, THE MAJORITY, IF NOT MOST HAVE SIGNED AN AGREEMENT, THE EMAIL AGREEMENT THAT YOU, UM, EACH MEMBER WOULD ABIDE FOR ADHERE BY THOSE RULES.

UM, AND THOSE RULES ARE, UM, IN CODE.

SO THEY ARE CODIFIED.

UM, THEY ARE ON A, IN A SECTION 2, 1, 4, 9, AND SPECIFICALLY THERE IS ONE WHICH IS 2, 1, 4 9 C3.

UM, IF THOSE RULES ARE NOT, OR THE CODE IS NOT ADHERED TO IT IS, UM, THE MEMBER IS SUBJECT, UH, TO VACATE TO VACATION OF THAT POSITION.

AND, UM, THE COUNCIL WAVE.

AND SO THAT EVERYONE IS AWARE, WE WERE, WE WERE MADE AWARE OF THESE INQUIRIES, IF YOU CAN USE THE, UM, A PERSONAL EMAIL.

AND, UM, WE ARE GOING STEPHANIE IN OUR OFFICE.

SHE'S OUR BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS COORDINATOR WILL BE, UH, FORWARDING SOME INFORMATION TO ALL

[00:30:01]

OF THE STAFF LIAISONS, EXECUTIVE LIAISONS, AND ALL BOARD MEMBERS REGARDING, UM, THIS PRACTICE.

AND SO BEFORE THAT, I WENT AHEAD AND, UM, MADE ALL OF MAYOR AND COUNCIL AWARE OF THIS INFORMATION THAT WILL BE SENT OUT TO EVERYONE.

AND, UM, THAT THEY ARE TO AT, YOU KNOW, ALL THE MEMBERS ARE TOO.

I HEAR TO THIS PIECE OF THIS, OF THE CODE, UH, REGARDING THE, UH, EMAIL ADDRESS THAT IS PROVIDED TO YOU FROM THE CITY.

AND, UM, I JUST WANT TO SHARE THAT, YOU KNOW, THE CITY WILL, OR THE CITY HAS AN EXPECTATION UNDER LAW, UM, HAVE ACCESS TO AN, UH, DISCLOSURE OF ANY PERSONAL EMAIL ACCOUNTS THAT ARE USED IN PLACE OF THE CITY PROVIDED SYSTEM.

SO, UM, IF SOMEONE CHOOSES, LET'S SAY WE HAVE ONE MEMBER WHO DOES NOT AGREE WITH, UH, DOES NOT AGREE AND IS NOT ASSIGNED A BOARDING COMMISSION ADDRESS.

THE ONLY THING THAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO PROVIDE THAT MEMBER IS A COPY OF THE AGENDA, UM, AND NOT EVEN THE SUPPORTING DOCUMENTATION.

UM, AND THAT IS IT.

THAT MEMBER CANNOT UTILIZE THEIR PERSONAL EMAIL FOR BOARD.

UM, UM, ANY BOARD WORK OR COMMUNICATION, IF THEY HAVE AN ASSIGNED EMAILAGE CITY EMAIL ADDRESS AND THEY ARE UTILIZING A PERSONAL ADDRESS, THEY MUST USE THE MUST ALSO COPY THEIR CITY ACCOUNT, UM, STAFF LIAISONS, AND ANY STAFF SHOULD NOT, AND WILL NOT BE, UM, EMAILING ANYTHING TO A PERSONAL ACCOUNT.

THEY WILL BE EMAILING IT TO A BOARD AND COMMISSION ASSIGNED ACCOUNT.

UM, AGAIN, IT'S IN THE CODE.

AND IF THE MEMBER WHO, UM, IS IN VIOLATION IS SUBJECT TO AUTOMATICALLY VACATING THE, UH, POSITION.

UM, SO I'LL HAVE MAYOR AND COUNCIL HAVE BEEN MADE AWARE, UM, AND THAT'S WHAT I CAN SHARE WITH YOU ALL FOR NOW, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, I APPRECIATE THAT.

ANY QUESTIONS? YEAH.

CAN YOU JUST TELL US EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS IN CODE, BECAUSE I THINK YOU READ OUT SOME ACTION, WHICH I DIDN'T CATCH HER WITH, LIKE TO LOOK IT UP, BUT IF YOU CAN JUST TELL US, I WOULD APPRECIATE WHAT IT SAYS.

SO WHAT I, I WILL BE READING ARE, UM, CODIFIED REQUIREMENTS THAT SPECIFICALLY SEEK COMPLIANCE, UM, WITH REGARD TO YOUR INQUIRIES.

SO THE FIRST ONE IS 2 1 4 9 C TWO, AND IT STATES IF A BOARD MEMBER RECEIVES A COMMUNICATION RELATED TO THE MEMBER SERVICE AS A BOARD MEMBER ON A NON-CITY ACCOUNT, THE MEMBER SHALL PROMPTLY FORWARD THE COMMUNICATION TO THE CITY ACCOUNT, FURNISHED TO THE MEMBER.

THE OTHER, THE OTHER SECTION IS 2 1 4 9 C THREE A AND IT STATES EXCEPT AS PROVIDED BY THE, A BOARD MEMBER WHO USES ELECTRONIC DEVICES FOR COMMUNICATIONS RELATED TO BOARD BUSINESS IN VIOLATION OF THIS SUBSECTION AUTOMATICALLY VACATES THE MEMBER'S POSITION, A BOARD MEMBER WHO VACATES A POSITION UNDER THIS SUBSECTION DOES NOT HOLD OVER UNDER SECTION 2, 1, 2 7, WHICH IS VACANCY AND HOLD OVER CAPACITY.

THOSE ARE THE TWO CODIFICATION SPECIFICALLY TO THESE INQUIRIES THAT HAVE BEEN MADE AND THAT, UM, I EMAILED MAYOR AND COUNCIL TO GIVE THEM A HEADS UP THAT WE WOULD BE, UM, PROVIDING ALL THE MEMBERS OR A REFRESHER OR A REMINDER, UM, ABOUT THE USE OF EMAIL ADDRESSES.

SO WHEN IT BE IN COMPLIANCE, IF YOU RECEIVED A COMMUNICATION TO BOTH OF YOUR EMAIL ADDRESSES AND REPLIED AND CO AND COPIED YOUR BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS EMAIL, YES, THAT IS IN COMPLIANCE BY STAFF.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT STAFF WILL NOT COPY YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL ADDRESS.

THEY WILL ONLY COPY YOUR BOARD ASSIGNED EMAIL ADDRESS.

SO IF YOU HAPPEN TO MISS SOME COMMUNICATION, BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT USED TO CHECKING YOUR BOARDING COMMISSION ADDRESS, THEN YOU'RE GOING TO NOT HAVE THAT INFORMATION.

ANOTHER SCENARIO THAT COMES TO MIND IS WHAT IF A MEMBER OF THE PUBLIC IS TRYING TO REACH YOU SPECIFICALLY, AND THEY ARE UTILIZING

[00:35:01]

THE BOARD AND COMMISSION EMAIL ADDRESS.

YOU WERE ASSIGNED THAT YOU ARE NOT CHECKING BECAUSE YOU'RE TRYING TO USE YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL ACCOUNT.

THEN YOU ARE NOT, UM, PROVIDING THAT PUBLIC MEMBER, THE SUPPORT THAT THEY ARE SEEKING FROM, YOU KNOW, AS A MEMBER, AS YOUR ROLE AS A MEMBER.

SO I HEAR YOU.

I LIKE THAT.

IT PROBABLY MAKES SENSE FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE.

LIKE PERSONALLY, MY, MY EMAILS, ALL MY EMAILS AND MY CELL PHONE NUMBER ARE WIDELY AVAILABLE.

SO I'M PRETTY EASY TO FIND, BUT I GET YOUR POINT.

AND AGAIN, THIS IS ALL I'M SORRY.

NO, GO AHEAD.

NO, AND AGAIN, EVERYTHING THAT WE DO IS SUBJECT TO OPEN RECORDS REQUEST.

NOW BACK AGAIN, PLEASE MYRNA, CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG.

AND I MEAN, JUST HISTORICALLY SPEAKING, WE HAD PARTICIPATE OR WERE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE WITH BOTH OUR PERSONAL END BOARDS AND COMMISSION, UH, EMAIL BEING COPIED AND STAFF UP UNTIL AGAIN, PLEASE, CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG UP UNTIL PERHAPS A MONTHS AGO, WE WERE ABLE TO CONTINUE USING OUR PERSONAL AND BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS SITES PRIOR TO THAT, I GUESS THIS GOES ON FOREVER TODAY, BUT, UH, WHAT DID THIS ACTUALLY, WHEN DID THE CHANGE OCCUR MURDER THE ACTUAL CHANGE, CORRECT.

OH, I WANT TO SAY WHEN WE WENT TO, I'M NOT SURE THAT IT OCCURRED BETWEEN 2015 AND 2017.

I DON'T HAVE THE EXACT WELL I'VE BEEN GETTING AND USING PERSONALLY, I HAVE USED MY PERSONAL EMAIL AND MY BOARD'S A COMMISSION EMAIL.

IT'S A LOT EASIER WHEN I'M TRAVELING OR RUNNING AROUND TO USE MY PERSONAL EMAIL.

I COPIED MYSELF AND I'M ABLE TO COMMUNICATE QUICKER TO, TO, UH, THE BOARDS OF COMMISSION FOLKS, LIAISON STAFF, YOU NAME IT WHEN I DO USE MY PERSONAL VERSUS HAVING TO LOG IN SPECIFICALLY TO A OR TO COMMISSION SITE.

BUT NONETHELESS, I HEARD, I APPRECIATE THE UPDATE ON THIS.

AND, UM, AGAIN, I, I DON'T RECALL THAT BACK IN 2015, AGAIN, THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT, UH, YOU'RE NOT CORRECT.

IT'S JUST, I HAVE A TERRIBLE MEMORY.

AND, UH, I WANT TO THANK THAT.

WE HAD BEEN USING PERSONALLY EMAILS UP UNTIL AGAIN, SIX MONTHS AGO THAT THEY WERE PERMISSIBLE, BUT NONETHELESS, UM, ANY TIME THAT, UM, YOU ARE NOMINATED OR I MEAN, APPOINTED OR REAPPOINTED, YOU KNOW, THIS IS ALL IN THE TRAINING.

UM, WE HAVE AN AGREEMENT.

YOU, IF YOU HAVE AN ASSIGNED EMAIL ADDRESS, YOU SIGNED THAT AGREEMENT THAT YOU WOULD ADHERE TO THOSE RULES, YOU KNOW, THAT WAS DRAFTED BY THE LAW DEPARTMENT.

IT'S CODIFIED ON ALL OF THEM.

MAYOR AND COUNCIL ARE AWARE.

UM, UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE SO MANY NOT, YOU KNOW, JUST SO MANY BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS THAT UNFORTUNATELY OUR OFFICE, WE DON'T KNOW THE INS AND OUTS, AND THAT'S WHY WE HAVE, UNLESS IT IS BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION, OR WE RECEIVE A PUBLIC INFORMATION REQUEST BECAUSE SOMEONE, FOR SOME REASON, RECEIVED AN EMAIL, LET'S SAY, FOR EXAMPLE, FROM YOU, FROM YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL ACCOUNT, THEY WILL SUBMIT A PIR.

AND THEN WE, OUR OFFICE WILL REACH OUT TO YOU AND, AND REQUEST THAT INFORMATION.

AND THE MEMBER IS REQUIRED TO TURN THAT OVER.

NOW, WHAT OCCURS IF YOU DON'T? I DON'T KNOW, BUT, UM, WE HAVEN'T GOTTEN TO THAT, THAT POINT OR TO THAT STATE.

SO, UM, AGAIN, IT'S REALLY, IT JUST DEPENDS ON WHO IS AWARE AND HOW, YOU KNOW, IF PEOPLE KNOW THE RULES, UM, WE ALSO PROVIDE TRAINING AND REFRESHER TRAINING TO ALL THE STAFF AND LEAVE, YOU KNOW, STAFF LIAISON.

SO THIS IS SOMETHING THAT THEY SHOULD BE, UM, REVIEWING AND INFORMING US ABOUT IN SEEKING ADVICE FROM OUR OFFICE SO THAT WE CAN, UM, DO WHAT WE'RE DOING NOW.

YEAH.

I JUST WANT TO SAY, LIKE I WAS RECENTLY REAPPOINTED, SO I WENT THROUGH THE REFRESHER TRAINING AND I ASKED THIS SPECIFIC QUESTION AND I GOT A DIFFERENT ANSWER.

UM, SO, YOU KNOW, THE ANSWER THAT I GOT THERE WAS THAT IT WAS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO USE YOUR OFFICIAL CITY EMAIL, BUT THAT IF YOU CHOSE TO USE YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL, THAT IT WOULD BE SUBJECT TO OPEN RECORDS REQUEST.

AND THAT WAS, YOU KNOW, A BURDEN

[00:40:01]

YOU WERE TAKING ON YOURSELF BY USING YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL.

SO, UM, I THANK YOU.

WELL, AND THANK YOU FOR SHARING THAT WE'LL ADDRESS.

YOU KNOW, WE'LL, I'LL MENTION THAT IN REVIEW THE TRAINING WITH OUR STAFF AND WHOEVER PROVIDED THE TRAINING.

UM, BUT IT MAY HAVE EITHER BEEN, YOU KNOW, COMMUNICATED, MAYBE NOT COMMUNICATED AS THOROUGHLY AS IT SHOULD HAVE, BUT IN THAT TRAINING, I KNOW THAT IT IS STRESSED.

THAT AGAIN, IF YOU DO UTILIZE YOUR PERSONAL EMAIL, IT IS SUBJECT FOR OPEN RECORD.

AND LIKE THE CODE STATES YOU NEED TO, YOU, YOU MUST THEN FORWARD THAT EMAIL TO YOUR BOARD AND COMMISSION ADDRESS.

UM, SO MAYBE THAT COMMUNICATION WASN'T AS THOROUGH, BUT THAT'S WHAT THE INTENT WAS OF THAT DISCUSSION.

UM, YES.

SO THAT'S WHAT I'VE GOT FOR NOW.

THANK YOU, MARTIN.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? CONCERNS, COMMISSIONERS.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE PATIENTS BURN.

THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATIONS AND SOME CLARITY HERE.

I, UH, AGAIN, I'M NOT AS DENSE AS THEY COME AND I'LL PROBABLY END UP MAKING A MISTAKE OR TWO IN THE FUTURE AND YOU CAN SLAP ME ON THE WRIST, BUT, BUT NONETHELESS, I THANK YOU FOR THE PRESENTATION STAFF.

THANK YOU FOR PROVIDING MYRNA AND INDIA.

SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT, COMMISSIONERS, MOVING ALONG.

THE NEXT

[4.STAFF BRIEFINGS]

ITEM HERE IS STAFF BRIEFINGS, ITEM FOUR CANNONS.

I THINK WE HAVE BRITS COMING UP, UH, JERRY.

OH, THANK YOU.

DID YOU HAVE A, UM, JUST GOT ONE HERE? MY, MY VIDEO DOESN'T SEEM TO BE WORKING HERE, SO NOT THE VOLUME, I GUESS THAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT, LET ME SEE HERE MORE IN GROUP.

OH, GOOD EVENING.

COMMISSIONERS, BRETT PAGE FINANCIAL MANAGER, BUDGET AND CONTRACT DEVELOPMENT FOR AUSTIN RESOURCE RECOVERY.

UM, THIS EVENING WE HAVE SOME OF OUR FINANCIAL DATA AS WELL AS I BRIEFLY WANTED TO TOUCH ON THESE SOLICITATIONS UPDATE.

UM, AS YOU ALL ARE AWARE, WE HAVE, UH, ARE THEY ACTUALLY GONE OVER ONE OF THE SOLICITATIONS ON HERE, WHICH IS IN OUR SOLICITATION IS UNDER EVALUATION AND NEGOTIATION.

THAT'S THE EDUCATION.

YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL PATIENT SERVICES.

UM, SO WE'RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND, UH, BRIEFLY TOUCH ON OUR RECYCLING AND SOLID WASTE CONSULTING SERVICES.

UM, WE HAVE A SOLICITATION ON OUR DEVELOPMENT TO ASSIST OUR APARTMENT AND, UH, PROVIDING SOME PROFESSIONAL RECYCLING INDUSTRY CONSULTING SERVICES, UM, TO HELP US WHEN WE'RE ANALYZING, UM, ALL OF OUR NEEDS, UH, WHEN IT COMES TO THE RECYCLING PROCESSING, UH, WE EXPECT THAT SOLICITATION TO, UM, HIT THE STREETS SOMETIME IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS.

UH, IT'S STILL IN DEVELOPMENT, SO WE DON'T NECESSARILY EXPECT IT TO BE OUT IN THE NEXT 90 DAYS.

UM, THAT IS WHY IT'S UP AT THE VERY TOP.

UM, MOVING ON TO THE NEXT SECTION, OUR SOLICITATIONS, WE EXPECT TO BE POSTED WITHIN THE NEXT 90 DAYS.

UH, SORRY.

STILL ON THE SOLICITATIONS UPDATE, WE HAVE THE, UM, AS BEST AS LEAD MOTIVATED SERVICES ARE EATING, THIS IS FOR OUR BROWNFIELDS GROUP.

UM, THIS IS TO HELP UTILIZE OUR REVOLVING LOAN FUND, UH, MONEY THAT WE RECEIVED FROM EPA.

AND THESE WILL BE CONTRACTORS THAT WE WILL THEN, UH, CREATE INDIVIDUAL CONTRACTS WITH UNDER THAT AGREEMENT.

UM, AND I BELIEVE WE'VE ACTUALLY ALREADY HIT ON ALL THE REST OF THE SOLICITATIONS THAT ARE IN THE EVALUATION AND NEGOTIATION.

UM, AND UNLESS ANYBODY HAS ANY QUESTIONS WE CAN MOVE ON INTO OUR NUMBER SECTION.

I, I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION ABOUT THE CONSULTING, A SOLICITATION.

COULD YOU DESCRIBE A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT THE KIND OF INFORMATION YOU HOPE TO GET FROM

[00:45:01]

THE CONSULTANT AND HOW THAT MIGHT INFORM WHAT TYPES OF DECISIONS ARR IS MAKING? I CAN BRIEFLY TOUCH ON THAT.

UM, SO WITHIN, UH, THE SOLICITATION, PARTICULARLY WE'RE LOOKING FOR SOME EXPERTISE WHEN IT COMES TO, UM, PULLING IN DATA FROM OTHER ENTITIES.

UM, FOR INSTANCE, WE HAVE USED IN THE PAST, UH, BURNS AND MCDONALD TO, UM, HELP US, UM, SHOW THE BREAKDOWN OF THE OTHER CITIES, UM, THAT BELIEVE THEY DID A PRESENTATION TO YOU GUYS.

UM, UM, THAT KIND OF GAVE US AN IDEA WHEN WE HAD QUESTIONS ABOUT OUR RECYCLING, UM, THE COMMODITIES PRICES THAT WE WERE RECEIVING FOR THE RECYCLING.

UM, SO WE HAD THEM COME IN, UM, DO SOME RESEARCH, UM, WELL THEN THEIR KNOWLEDGE TO ADD ON TOP OF WHAT WE ALREADY HAVE AND UTILIZE THEIR SERVICES IN THAT, IN THAT WAY.

UM, AND THIS AND THIS, UM, RESULTING CONTRACT, WE EXPECT THEM TO, UM, DO SOME SIMILAR TYPE OF, UH, RESEARCH, UM, AS WELL AS, UH, DID WE HELP US OUT AT OUR DIFFERENT RECYCLING PROCESSING, UM, FACILITIES AND MAKING SURE THAT, UH, YOU KNOW, WE AS A DEPARTMENT ARE NOT JUST TAKING OUR OWN INSTITUTIONAL KNOWLEDGE, BUT UTILIZING KNOWLEDGE OUTSIDE TO ENSURE THAT WE ARE, UM, MAKING THE MOST OUT OF OUR, UH, THE CITIZENS, UH, MONEY.

THANK YOU.

I'M SORRY.

YES.

I'D LIKE TO, UM, I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS THE MOMENT TO TALK ABOUT THIS OR NOT, BUT, UM, I THINK ANY NEW INFORMATION, UH, ANY DIFFERENT WAY TO, UM, FOR MARKETING AND ANYTHING THAT YOU GET, UM, MORE, UH, CURRENT STATUS, YOU KNOW, ON RECYCLING IN GENERAL, UH, THAT WOULD BE REALLY IMPORTANT IF THAT COULD BE PASSED ONTO THE COMMISSION.

ONCE YOU GET THAT, AND THIS SOLICITATION IS THAT FOR ONE TIME, IS IT FOR, I CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT THAT SAID.

UM, WAS IT FOR MORE THAN SEVERAL YEARS, OR HOW OFTEN DO YOU ACCESS THAT, THAT CON THE CONSULTATION SERVICES? SO THIS ONE, THIS ONE WILL BE FOR ON AN AS-NEEDED BASIS.

UM, WE, UM, DON'T EXPECT IT TO, WE DON'T, WE EXPECT THAT IT WILL BE LESS THAN $50,000 AND THE RESULTING CONTRACT, UM, AND IT IT'LL, IT'LL DEPEND ON THE SERVICES THAT WE NEEDED AT THE TIME AS TO HOW MUCH IT WILL BE, UM, FOR THAT PARTICULAR ENGAGEMENT.

UM, YOU KNOW, WE, WE DON'T EXPECT THESE WILL BE VERY HIGH DOLLAR ENGAGEMENTS.

UH, WE EXPECT THEM TO BE, YOU KNOW, A FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS MAYBE, UM, AND WE'D EXPECT, YOU KNOW, TO HAVE A COUPLE OF THEM, BUT WE WANTED TO PUT SOMETHING IN PLACE.

UM, SO THAT IF WE HAD SOMETHING THAT WE WERE ASKED, WE DIDN'T, WE WEREN'T STRUGGLING LAST MINUTE, TRYING TO, UM, EA FIND THE INFORMATION OURSELVES AND B FIND A CONTRACTOR THAT COULD DO THE WORK AND THEN HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT WHOLE PROCESS THAT MAY TAKE, YOU KNOW, SOME TIME.

WHEREAS IF WE SET THIS UP, WE CAN CALL ON THEM ONCE WE HAVE THE, THOSE, UM, RESULTS FROM THE SOLICITATION AND, UH, MR. SNIPES.

UM, I REMEMBER WHEN WE HAD THE RETREAT THAT I THINK, UH, TAMMY AND I HAD TALKED ABOUT, UM, MORE OF THE NITTY-GRITTY THAT THE DEPARTMENT HAS TO FACE.

AND SO I WOULD REALLY LIKE MORE OF THAT AGAIN, ON MAYBE THE OBSTACLES AND THE STRUGGLES THAT YOU ALL ARE HAVING AND TO WHERE THEN THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO HAVE A CONSULTATION, AND THEN IT, IT GIVES YOU CLARITY AND HOPEFULLY IT WOULD GIVE US SOME CLARITY.

ALSO, I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE MORE OF THOSE UPDATES, ABSOLUTELY COMMISSIONER.

WE CAN CERTAINLY DO THAT.

AND, UH, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE A COUPLE OF SESSIONS PLANNED, UH, WHERE WE WERE GOING TO COME BACK.

ACTUALLY, WE, WE WERE IN THE PROCESS.

YOU MAY REMEMBER SCHEDULING ANOTHER RETREAT.

UH, ALSO, SO WE, WE, WE ARE WORKING ON THAT.

UM, AND THE TYPES OF THINGS, JUST TO GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT A FUEL, UM, I DON'T WANT TO GO THROUGH OUR WHOLE NUMBER STACK TONIGHT.

UM, BUT AT THE TYPES OF THINGS THAT WE'RE PAYING CLOSE ATTENTION TO ARE THE NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS THAT, UH, WE'RE ADDING TO OUR ACCOUNTS, UH, FROM 19 2019 TO 20, IT WAS ABOUT A 3000, UH, CUSTOMER, UH, INCREASE.

AND, UH, HALFWAY THROUGH THE YEAR NOW WE'RE ALREADY APPROACHING ANOTHER 3000.

SO WE'RE JUST UNDER THAT.

SO, UM, WE'RE LOOKING AT, UH, ALL THE IMPACTS TO OUR SERVICES AND TRYING TO GET AN UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THOSE TYPES OF THINGS ARE GONNA DO TO US GOING FORWARD.

AS WE SEE MORE PEOPLE COME COMING,

[00:50:01]

YOU KNOW, W WHAT TYPES OF CHANGES DO WE NEED TO MAKE TO, UH, TO, TO STAY ON PACE, UH, AND ACTUALLY TO INCREASE OUR PERFORMANCE IN SOME SECTORS.

SO WE'RE CERTAINLY PAYING ATTENTION TO THOSE THINGS, AND WE'RE GOING TO BE SHARING THOSE THINGS GOING FORWARD.

THAT'S GREAT, BECAUSE SOUNDS LIKE WE'RE GOING TO NEED MORE EDUCATION.

AREN'T WE, IF KNOWLEDGE NEW PEOPLE ARE COMING IN EXACTLY.

YOU KNOW, THIS IS A VERY CHALLENGING INDUSTRY TODAY, AS STAFF WILL PROBABLY ATTEST TO, I MEAN, THE, THE MARKETS ARE COMING BACK, BUT SELECTIVE MARKETS, I SHOULD SAY ARE COMING BACK.

THERE'S SO MANY VARIATIONS ON, LET'S JUST TAKE PLASTICS, FOR EXAMPLE.

I MEAN, THERE'S CERTAIN PLASTIC PLASTICS THAT, UH, YOU CAN GIVE AWAY ALL DAY LONG THERE'S OTHERS THAT ARE ABSOLUTELY ABSOLUTELY CHALLENGING TO PROCESS, TO FIND HOMES.

THIS IS A, AN INDUSTRY, AGAIN, THAT'S IN TRANSITION AND WITH THIS PANDEMIC AND OR SOME OF THE, UH, SOME OF THE OTHER ROUTES, UH, OBSTACLES THAT HAVE BEEN PLACED IN FRONT OF US, IT'S, IT'S, THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE TIMELY STUDY.

IS THERE A POSSIBILITY, BRENT, AND, OR WOULD THERE BE A DEADLINE ON PERHAPS INCLUDING A QUESTION OR TWO FROM THE COMMISSION THAT MIGHT BE, UH, INCLUDED WITH THIS, WITH THIS PRESENTATION? UH, ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT FOR THE SOLICITATION OR THE SOLICITATION? JUST A, YOU KNOW, IN ADDITION TO A, CAN WE INCLUDE APRIL VIEW, A, B AND C AND D? SO, UM, I THINK ANY, ANY QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS THE COMMISSION HAS, UH, BRING THEM FORWARD AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

AND IT MAY BE SOMETHING THAT WE CAN LOOK INTO ADDING INTO IT.

UM, THERE, UM, AS FAR AS THE SOLICITATION GOES, IT'S NOT OUT ON THE STREET YET.

AND SO ANYTHING THAT, UM, WE MAY NEED TO LOOK INTO THAT WE MAY NEED TO MT.

FIND EXPERTISE ON.

UM, I WOULD SAY TO BRING UP AT SOME POINT, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

ANY OTHER THOUGHTS? COMMISSIONERS CONCERNS.

ALL RIGHT, BRETT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I APPRECIATE THIS.

NO PROBLEM.

ALL RIGHT.

COMMISSIONERS, THAT LOOKS LIKE, THAT TAKES US TO THE END OF THE AGENDA.

UH, AS FAR AS FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS, I THINK, UH, KATHY, YOU CAN TELL YOU, BUT MENTIONED THAT PERHAPS A KEEP AUSTIN BEAUTIFUL PRESENTATION AND AURA UPDATES.

YES.

UH, UH, YEAH, THE PAST YEAR, WHAT THEY'RE LOOKING TO DO THIS COMING YEAR, UH, SOME OF THEIR CHALLENGES, UH, SUCCESSES.

OKAY.

OKAY, JERRY, I'VE GOT ONE AND I THINK THIS MIGHT BE A BIG, BIG TOPIC.

SO I'M GOING TO ASK EVERYONE TO PLEASE GIVE ME A MINUTE OR TWO TO TRY TO GET OUT WHAT'S IN MY HEAD.

UM, I, I RECEIVED A REALLY LOVELY NEWSLETTER.

UH, THE ARR NEWSLETTER CAME IN TODAY.

I DON'T KNOW IF EVERYONE RECEIVES IT THE SAME DAY I DO.

AND IT WAS JUST SO IMPRESSIVE TO SEE, YOU KNOW, THE VARIOUS PROGRAMS, THE TRASH DANCE DOCUMENTARY, THE COMPOSTING CLASSES, YOU KNOW, BROWNFIELDS ALL OF THE THINGS GOING ON.

AND THEN I SAW THE, UM, THE MOVE OUT THE WEST CAMPUS MOVE OUT PROGRAM.

THAT ONE IS CALLED MOVE-OUT ATX.

AND I READ ABOUT THAT ONE AND I WAS LIKE, OH, THIS IS GREAT.

YOU KNOW, COLLEGE STUDENTS CLEANING OUT THE DORMS. THIS IS AN IMPORTANT RECOVERY EFFORT.

I THINK WE'VE TALKED ABOUT IT IN THIS FORUM BEFORE, BUT IT'S WEST CAMPUS.

IT'S NOT ST.

AD'S, IT'S NOT CONCORDIA.

IT'S NOT HT IT'S UT.

AND THAT GOT ME TO THINKING ABOUT THE WAYS IN WHICH WE TALK IN THIS ROOM ABOUT EQUITY AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE IMPACTS OF THE WORK THAT'S DONE AT ARR, BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY, I MEAN, WE SEE IT, YOU KNOW, IN, IN THE BROWNFIELDS, UH, AREA, BUT I THINK IT'S NOT SOMETHING WE'RE TRACKING AND TALKING ABOUT ALL OF THE TIME, RIGHT.

MONTH TO MONTH, WE SEE THE SOLICITATIONS MONTH TO MONTH.

WE SEE THE NUMBERS FOR RECOVERY AND DIVERSION, BUT WE DON'T SEE THE, WHO IS BENEFITING IN TERMS OF INCOME, DEMOGRAPHICS, ET CETERA, FROM THESE VARIOUS OTHER SUPPLEMENTAL PROGRAMS. AND IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IF WE'RE NOT TRACKING IT, THEN WE DON'T KNOW IF WE'RE DOING WELL OR NOT.

SO I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE MAYBE FOR NEXT MONTH, MAYBE FOR TWO MONTHS, IF WE COULD VISIT THIS TOPIC IN A BIG PICTURE, MAY MAYBE THAT WOULD INVOLVE LOOKING AT THE, UM, THE EQUITY TOOLKIT AND SWAT THAT, YOU KNOW, THE EQUITY OFFICE FACILITATED FOR ALL CITY DEPARTMENTS.

MAYBE WE COULD GO THROUGH THAT, BUT FOR WHAT THAT LOOKED LIKE

[00:55:01]

FOR ARR AND HAVE SOME DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT'S ACHIEVABLE AND WHAT'S NOT, BUT IT JUST, IT STOOD OUT TO ME THAT WE PICK ON THIS TOPIC AS IT BOILS UP AND NOT IN A SYSTEMIC WAY, NOT IN A DELIBERATE REPEATED WAY IN THE DAY-TO-DAY BUSINESS, THAT WE'RE MONTH TO MONTH BUSINESS THAT WE DO IN THIS COMMISSION.

AND I WOULD LIKE US AS A COMMISSION FOR US TO ENGAGE WITH THAT MORE FREQUENTLY THAN WE DO.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S A TOPIC FOR NEXT MONTH OR MAYBE TWO MONTHS FROM NOW, ONCE WE'VE HAD TIME TO COORDINATE A LITTLE BIT MORE ON WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE, BUT THAT'S WHAT YOUR REQUEST OF, UH, THE DEPARTMENT AND, UH, MY FELLOW COMMISSIONERS.

I LIKE IT.

IT'S A WONDERFUL REQUEST.

IN FACT, IT'S A, OH MY GOD, IT'S SOMETHING THAT IS PROBABLY NEEDED.

I MEAN, JUST THE ENCOURAGEMENT THAT, UH, THAT COULD COME ABOUT BY, BY DOING SOMETHING SUCH AS THAT FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY WOULD BE, WOULD BE A GREAT BOOST.

A COMMISSIONER'S YOUR THOUGHTS ON THAT? I, I, AGAIN, I LIKE THE IDEA.

I'M SO GLAD YOU BROUGHT THAT UP.

SOMETHING I WOULD REALLY LOVE TO FOCUS ON.

SO YOU WERE SAYING THAT THERE'S INFORMATION ABOUT NEW T WEST CAMPUS, BUT YOU ALSO WANT TO LOOK INTO THAT HAVING HCA AND THE OTHER COLLEGES INVOLVED.

EXACTLY.

AND I THINK, THINK, YOU KNOW, I I'M SURE THAT THERE ARE PROGRAMS WHERE THE T YOU KNOW, I AM SURE THERE, THERE ARE PROGRAMS THAT ARE REALLY HITTING ALL DEMOGRAPHICS AND REALLY BENEFITING, UM, ALL AUSTINITES.

AND THEN THERE ARE PROBABLY OTHERS THAT ARE NOT, AND THAT WE DON'T KNOW BECAUSE WE'RE NOT REALLY LOOKING IN A SYSTEMIC WAY.

RIGHT.

I MEAN, LOOK, WHEN WE, WHEN WE GET THE REPORT ABOUT THE PARTICULAR PROGRAM, WE MIGHT TALK ABOUT ENGLISH LANGUAGE SPEAKERS VERSUS NON, BUT WE USUALLY DON'T VISIT US IN A BIG PICTURE WAY, YOU KNOW, ON A REGULAR BASIS.

SO, SO THAT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL TO KNOW, YOU KNOW, ALONG, ALONG YOUR THOUGHT PROCESS THERE, I, I WOULD LOVE FOR STAFF TO, TO MAYBE WORK WITH, WITH US, WITH YOU AND, AND DEVISING KIND OF A FORMAT THAT WE COULD USE TO TRACK, AND THEN TO ACTUALLY SET SOME STANDARDS, SET SOME PROTOCOL FOR THE FUTURE.

I MEAN, UT MOVES OUT EVERY YEAR, ST.

ED'S HOUSTON TILLOTSON, CONCORDIA, YOU NAME IT.

SO THIS COULD BE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO, TO REALLY INVOLVE MANY, MANY PEOPLE, MANY YOUNG PEOPLE THERE, ANY THOUGHTS, GUYS, CONCERNS.

AND AGAIN, THESE ARE FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS, SO PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SPIT OUT ANYTHING HERE.

ALL RIGHT, GUYS, I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE WATER WHEEL THING AT SOME POINT WHEN THERE'S MORE INFORMATION TO SHARE.

THANK YOU, KAY.

BUT, OKAY.

AND I GUESS, UH, ANY OTHER THOUGHTS? ANY OTHER IDEAS? YEAH, MY GUYS, I'M SORRY.

YOU MEANT THE TRASH WHEEL, CORRECT? YEAH.

WELL, WE WERE GONNA, WE WERE GONNA RENT THAT OTHER WHEEL OUT IN DAYS OF NON-USE SO ON SEVERAL MONTHS, BUT NONETHELESS GUYS, COMMISSIONERS.

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH STAFF, WONDERFUL JOB.

I APPRECIATE THE PATIENCE GUYS.

UH, WE HAVE NO ADDITIONAL ITEMS TO ADDRESS.

I WILL ENTERTAIN A MOTION FOR A GERM.

AMANDA, KATHY SECONDS.

EVERYBODY RAISE YOUR HAND PLEASE.

QUICK.

THANK YOU.

HAVE A WONDERFUL, SAFE EVENING.

THANKS GUYS FOR EVERYTHING.

BYE-BYE THANK YOU.

KNEW HOW IT WOULD HURT.
