GENERAL MANAGER/STAFF REPORTS EMPLOYEE RECOGNITION Each month an outstanding employee is nominated for the ongoing Employee Recognition Program. This month, we are proud to recognize Tim Chee, Recreation Director. Shawna McGrew, Assistant Recreation Supervisor, will make the presentation. 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 agencies, community based organizations, education institutions, unions and the business 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 will be implementing site specific management plans and leading restoration efforts in our 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.

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.
