THIS IS THE HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES COMMITTEE MEETING.

IT IS NOW 2:05 PM AND I CALLED THE MEETING TO ORDER.

UM, I'D LIKE TO INVITE NOW ANYBODY WHO'S SIGNED UP FOR CITIZEN COMMUNICATION AND IT ACTUALLY LOOKS AS THOUGH WE DON'T HAVE ANYBODY TO SIGN TO, TO SPEAK.

SO WE'LL MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ITEM.

[1. Approve the minutes of the Health and Human Services Committee special called meeting on August 3, 2020.]

THE NEXT ITEM IS THE APPROVAL OF MINUTES.

SO MOVING FORWARD, UM, WE'RE GOING TO TODAY, UH, HAVE TWO ITEMS FOR DISCUSSION, WHICH WILL BE TO TAKE, UM, UH, SOME OF THE THINGS WE'RE GOING TO TAKE UP DURING THE EXECUTIVE SESSION ITEM.

NUMBER TWO IS DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE ACTION REGARDING THE SOBERING CENTER, LOCAL GOVERNMENT CORPORATION, MEMBERSHIP NOMINATIONS, AND THEN ITEM NUMBER THREE IS TO DISCUSS THE, UM, SELECTION OF MEMBERS TO THE SOBERING CENTER, LOCAL GOVERNMENT CORPORATION, BOARD OF DIRECTORS, LIKE EDDIE.

WE'LL TAKE THESE ITEMS UP IN EXECUTIVE SESSION, AND ONCE WE COME OUT, WE'LL REPORT BACK ON THOSE ITEMS. WE ALSO HAVE SOME BRIEFINGS TODAY.

UM, DUH, IT LOOKS LIKE WE DON'T HAVE ANY PRESENTERS ON THE AGENDA.

SO NOW WE'LL MOVE ON TO EXECUTIVE SESSION WHERE THE COMMITTEE WILL TAKE UP TWO ITEMS. I MENTIONED EARLIER, ITEM NUMBER THREE, DISCUSS THE SELECTION OF MEMBERS TO THE SOBERING CENTER, LOCAL GOVERNMENT CORPORATION, BOARD OF DIRECTORS.

THIS IS PERSONNEL MATTERS, SECTION FIVE FIVE ONE SEVEN FOUR OF THE GOVERNMENT CODE.

AND NUMBER FOUR, DISCUSS THE APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS TO THE CENTRAL HEALTH BOARD OF MANAGERS.

PERSONNEL MATTERS.

UH, THAT SECTION FIVE FIVE ONE ZERO SEVEN FOUR OF THE GOVERNMENT CODE AND DUCKS FRIDAY CENTER APPLICANTS.

AND IF THERE'S NO OBJECTION TO GO IN AND DO EXECUTIVE SESSION, THE HUMAN SERVICES COMMITTEE WILL GO INTO EXECUTIVE NATASHA, A CHAIR.

OH, THE MINUTES.

MY APOLOGIES.

UM, IF WE CAN GO AHEAD AND TAKE A VOTE ON THOSE.

UH, I MET, IT APPEARS AS THOUGH THERE'S A UNANIMOUS VOTE.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU FOR THE REMINDER THERE, PRETENDING IN

[Executive Session]

WHICH CASE, UM, I'LL I THINK I SHOULD PROBABLY REREAD THE, UM, GOING INTO EXECUTIVE SESSION.

UM, WE HAVE, UH, ITEM NUMBER THREE TO DISCUSS THE SELECTION OF BOARD MEMBERS TO THE SOBERING CENTER, LOCAL GOVERNMENT CORPORATION, BOARD OF DIRECTORS, UM, SECTION FIVE, FIVE ONE ZERO SEVEN FOR THE GOVERNMENT CODE AND NUMBER FOUR, DISCUSS THE APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS TO THE CENTRAL HEALTH BOARD OF MANAGERS.

WE'RE GOING TO GO INTO EXECUTIVE SESSION.

UH, THE TIME IS THREE 16 AND THE PUBLIC HEALTH COMMITTEE IS OUT OF EXECUTIVE SESSION.

DURING EXECUTIVE SESSION.

WE DISCUSSED SELECTION OF THE MEMBERS TO THE SOBERING CENTER, LOCAL GOVERNMENT CORPORATION, BOARD OF DIRECTORS, AND THE APPOINTMENT OF THE MEMBERS TO THE CENTRAL HEALTH BOARD MANAGER.

UM, SO WITH REGARD TO A COUNCIL MEMBER, UM, CHAIR HARPER, MADISON HAD TO ATTEND TO A PERSONAL MATTER.

SO, UM, I I'M, I AS THE VICE CHAIR OF ENSURING THE MAIN NOW, UM, WITH REGARDS

[3. Discuss the current directors’ terms of the Sobering Center Local Government Corporation and possible membership nominations.]

TO OUR CENTRAL HEALTH,

[00:05:01]

UM, RECOMMENDATION, WE HAD THE SAME TOP TWO CANDIDATES THAT THE COUNTY HAD, AND THIS IS OUR JOINT COUNTY CITY APPOINTMENT.

AND SO, UH, THE PUBLIC HEALTH COMMITTEE WILL HAVE PICKED A COUNCIL MEMBER OR HARPER MADISON, THE CHAIR AND COUNCIL RAN KITCHEN TO WORK WITH THE COUNTY.

UM, AND, UM, EITHER THE TWO OF THEM TOGETHER CAN WORK WITH THE OTHER, UM, REPRESENTATIVES ON THE COMMISSIONER'S COURT TO DETERMINE WHAT WE WANT TO DO.

UM, THERE MAY BE ANOTHER ROUND OF INTERVIEWS AS WE DETERMINE WHAT THE, UM, WHAT THE AGREEMENT OR CONSENSUS IS ON, ON THAT PIC.

AND SO THAT WILL EITHER OCCUR A POSSIBLE ANOTHER INTERVIEW OF THOSE TOP TWO CANDIDATES.

AGAIN, THE SAME AS THE COUNTY'S PICKS, UM, AT OUR NEXT MEETING, UM, OR, OR THERE WILL BE A FEW DROP DATE FROM THE CHAIR ON THAT WITH REGARDS TO, UM, OUR SOBERING CENTER APPOINTMENTS, WE HAVE PICKED THE FOLLOWING APPLICANTS TO INTERVIEW CAROL DRENNAN, ANDREA BROWER, PAULA COOPER, AND ELIZABETH BOSTON.

UM, WE WILL INTERVIEW THEM AT THE NEXT MEETING, WHICH I BELIEVE IS SEPTEMBER 8TH.

I'M NOT A HUNDRED PERCENT SURE ON THAT.

LET ME LOOK AT MY CALENDAR.

IT MAY NOT BE IN MY CALENDAR BECAUSE I'M ACTUALLY NOT ACTUALLY BE OUT OF TOWN, BUT THOSE INTERVIEWS WILL HAPPEN.

THE CITY STAFF WILL CONTACT THE SPI APPLICANTS AND SET UP THOSE INTERVIEWS FOR THE NEXT PUBLIC HEALTH.

AND THEN WITH REGARDS TO ITEM, IS IT THREE YEAH.

THREE, WHICH, UM, THE PUBLIC HEALTH COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS THAT COUNCIL MEMBER TOGO CONTINUE HER SERVICE ON THE SOBERING CENTER BOARD.

AND WE OF COURSE THANK HER FOR HER CONTINUED SERVICE ON THAT BOARD.

DO ANY OF THE MEMBERS WANT TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT OUR, OUR EXECUTIVE SESSION? OKAY.

UM, AND THEN THE LAST ITEM WOULD

[6. Identify items to discuss at future meetings.]

BE ITEM SIX, WHICH IS, UH, IDENTIFY ITEMS TO DISCUSS AT FUTURE MEETINGS.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE ANY ITEMS THEY WANT A COUNCIL MEMBER TOBO YEAH, I DO.

THANKS FOR ASKING.

I FORGOTTEN.

UM, I'M NOT SURE THAT IT WOULD BE READY FOR ONE OF OUR NEXT MEETINGS, BUT MAYBE IN DECEMBER IT WOULD BE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE OUR NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FOR THE SOBERING CENTER COME AND PROVIDE AN UPDATE, UM, AN INTRODUCTION REALLY TO, TO HER WORK, BUT ALSO KIND OF AN UPDATE ON SOME OF THE, SOME OF THE PROGRESS THAT THE SOBERING CENTER HAS MADE.

SO IF WE COULD SCHEDULE THAT FOR NOVEMBER OR DECEMBER, PROBABLY DECEMBER, BUT ONE OF THOSE TWO MONTHS, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

I'VE LOST TRACK OF OUR CALENDAR, BUT I WOULD JUST ADD THAT TO THE CONSIDERATION.

SOUNDS GOOD.

HOW'S HER KITCHEN, JUST SO WE THINK ABOUT AT SOME POINT, UM, HAVING MORE HAVING FOLLOWUP DISCUSSION, UM, THE, UM, BUT THE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR THAT ALMOST SERVICES.

I KNOW THAT'S COMING BACK TO US IN SEPTEMBER.

I THINK I'M NOT SURE EXACTLY WHEN, BUT I THINK AT SOME POINT IT WOULD BE APPROPRIATE.

THERE'S A LOT OF DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF THAT, YOU KNOW, UH, PROVIDING SERVICES FOR PEOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS TO TALK ABOUT, BUT THAT MIGHT BE ONE THAT, UM, THAT WOULD HELP US FOCUS ON SOME NEXT STEPS, UM, AS THEY FINISH THAT IMPLEMENTATION.

THANK YOU.

I'LL MOVE MUTE, DAVE.

THANK YOU FOR THAT.

UM, I WAS JUST GONNA, I WAS GONNA SAY I WAS GOING TO GO OVER THE SCRIPT TO MAKE SURE I DIDN'T MISS ANYTHING.

I DON'T THINK I MISSED IT.

I THINK WE'RE GOOD.

UM, AS A REMINDER, THE NEXT, UH, PUBLIC HEALTH COMMITTEE SPECIAL CALL MEETING TO CONDUCT INTERVIEWS FOR THE SOBERING CENTER VACANCY WILL BE ON SEPTEMBER 8TH AT 2:00 PM.

UM, POSSIBLY MIGHT, MAY HAVE INTERVIEWS FOR THE CENTRAL HALL, UM, AFTER WE, AFTER OUR CHAIR GETS IN TOUCH WITH THE, THE COUNTY AND WE DETERMINE IF THAT'S THE ROUTE THAT WE'RE GOING TO GO, UM, IS THERE IS NO OBJECTION.

WE ARE ADJOURNED AT THREE 21.

THANK YOU EVERYONE.
