     NEW STAFF

     I am pleased to introduce several new staff members:

     Carol Tatum, Executive Assistant to the General Manager, is the former Executive Director
     of Young Community Developers, an employment/training, job readiness agency in
     San Francisco. Ms. Tatum has a variety of experience working with city, state and federal

     community. She has worked with both youth and adults in citywide geographically and
     ethnically diverse consortiums and collaborations. Ms. Tatum has administrative/
     management, budgetary and programmatic experience. She looks forward to being an
     asset to the Recreation and Park Department using her talents and skills.
Michael Lum, Senior Personnel Analyst, comes to the Recreation and Park Department from
the Department of Parking and Traffic, where he worked in the human resources division
since the department’s inception in 1990. In addition, he has worked in the human
resources division in other City departments since 1985. Mr. Lum brings a wealth of
experience in a variety of areas.

Lisa Wayne, Restoration Team Leader, received her masters degree in Conservation Biology
from San Francisco State University. Ms. Wayne’s background includes teaching at
universities and community colleges, working for an environmental consulting firm and
working at the Presidio with volunteers in the management of natural areas. Ms. Wayne

department’s significant natural resource areas. As part of these restoration efforts, she
will be developing a volunteer community-based stewardship program.

Jaci Fong, Principal Administrative Analyst, has worked for the Purchasing Department for
the past three years as the senior purchaser assigned to the Recreation and Park
Department. Prior to working for the City, she worked in the computer industry. Ms. Fong
will supervise our department’s Property Management Division.

Christina Locke, assistant to the Commission Secretary, has worked for the Small Business
Exchange newspaper for the past eight years as an accounting clerk. She will be assisting
Margaret with the day to day activities.

Please join me in welcoming these new employees.

BUDGET UPDATE

The Board of Supervisors has completed its budgetary review of the Recreation and Park
Department’s budget. The Finance Committee adopted budget reductions totaling $360,228.
However, an additional $1,303,960 was added back to the budget for a net budget increase of
$943,732. This budget increase is in addition to those items already funded by the Mayor’s
Office, such as a public information office and an increase for workers compensation.

This budget increase will fund the following activities:

   Capital assessment study for $300,000 will be completed for a future bond measure for
    neighborhood facilities.

   The Latch Key Program will be increased by $677,418. Ten more Latch Key sites will be
    added along with ten Recreation Directors, and the supervisory component of the program
    will be enhanced.

   The Workreation Program will be increased by $150,000, enabling 180 additional youths
    (30 youths every eight weeks) to enter the program.

   The Late Night Rush Program will be increased by $176,542. Five Recreation Directors will
    be added to provide one full-time staff dedicated entirely to each of the Late Night sites. This
    staffing increase will complement the existing staff which are reallocated to conduct the
    Late Night Rush Program.
GOLDEN GATE PARK -- PANHANDLE AREA GROUND WATER REMEDIATION

Beginning July 17, Cambria Environmental Technology, Inc. will drill five soil borings (two
inches in diameter) and install oxygen releasing compounds on park property across the
street from a former Shell Service Station near the Golden Gate Park Panhandle (in the
vicinity of Fell and Stanyan Streets). Two monitoring wells (four inches in diameter) have
already been installed on park property in the same area. The purpose of the borings and
monitoring wells is to remediate hydrocarbon concentrations and/or other potentially toxic
substances in underlying ground water. Shell Oil Products Company is required to
perform this work by the Department of Public Health (Local Oversight Program) and the
Regional Water Quality Control Board. Once the work is completed, the borings and wells
will be filled and the surface area restored. The remediation method or Corrective Action
Plan proposed by Cambria Environmental Technology was approved by the Department of
Public Health. Recreation and Park Department staff worked with the City Attorney’s
Office to prepare and issue a permit for this activity. Although it is expected that the
monitoring wells and borings will have minimal impact to park property, the permit
requires Shell to restore any damaged areas to their previous condition.

TREASURE ISLAND MARINA

The Mayor’s Office has asked the Recreation and Park Department to assist the Treasure
Island Project by providing management services for the small marina on Treasure Island
effective August 1, 1997.

We are currently preparing a memorandum of understanding which will include
provisions for Yacht Harbor staff to perform billing and collections, berth assignments,
routine maintenance, dock checks and additional duties as needed. Additional features in
the agreement will be documentation requirements for the reimbursement for time and
materials expended and a schedule of payment to the Recreation and Park Department for
performance of these services. The additional duties are not expected to have any
significant impact on the quality of service provided to the San Francisco Marina. We are
also working with the Treasure Island Project to assume horticultural maintenance of the
Island and to issue permits for recreational activities. We anticipate presenting this
memorandum of understanding to the Commission for approval in August.

ZOO NEWS

The third African lion cub was received and she is being introduced to the other male and
female. A ring-tail lemur was born and can be seen in the exhibit with her baby riding on
her back.

A Chinese delegation from various zoos in China visited the San Francisco Zoo for a
curatorial tour.

Barbara Kemport, formerly with the San Francisco Art Institute, has been hired as the Zoo’s
new Capital Campaign Director.
