Total Cost: $285,708                         Responsible Lead         Dept: FIRE
                                             Person: Rick Sapp
Description of Improvement: When citizens call 911 with a fire or medical emergency, they
expect a prompt and professional response by enough trained personnel to safely handle the
situation. Both state and federal regulations address minimum fire fighter staffing tools.
WAC 296-305 states that fire fighters must not engage in interior structural fire fighting in the
absence of at least two standby fire fighters (in addition to the two person fire attack team). The
only exception is "where exceptional circumstances indicate that immediate action may be
necessary to prevent or mitigate the loss of life or serious injury to citizenry or fire fighters". In
this case, at least one additional fire fighter must be assigned to stand by. In the City of
Tumwater this means that when an engine arrives staffed with two fire fighters, they cannot
enter a burning structure to perform a rescue (without violating the law) until another unit arrives
on scene with additional trained personnel.
Staffing standards are also addressed by National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard
1710. This standard, adopted by NFPA in 2001, requires that an engine company staffed with
four fire fighters arrive within four minutes and/or the initial full alarm assignment (14-17 fire
fighters) respond within eight minutes, 90% of the time. The standard is based on a 2,000
square foot structure and takes into account all functions that must be performed on the
fireground to maximize fire fighting effectiveness while making safety for the citizenry and fire
fighters the top priority.
The Department continues to strive to meet the objective of the "Fire Service Plan" to staff the
North End Fire Station 100% of the time. The North End station was not staffed 54% of the time
in 2003 up from 49% in 2002. When this station is closed due to insufficient staffing levels,
citizens can expect longer delays in response to critical emergency services in some areas of
the City. Response delays are also created when the one on-duty engine crew has to handle
multiple alarms simultaneously, which is not an uncommon occurrence. The addition of four fire
fighters would allow for the opening of the North End Fire Station on a continuous basis. This
would be an important step in the process of reaching the goal of a minimum staffing of eight
on-duty personnel in the City as outlined in the 1988 "Fire Services Plan".

Description of Improvement: The City of Tumwater has never had attorney representation at
all stages of criminal proceedings. Vigorous prosecution should follow from police arrest or
citation for criminal activity. Societal focus on domestic violence and drunk driving have
highlighted the need for holding offenders accountable to the fullest extent of the law for these
and other crimes committed in our city. Adequate protection of victims and the general public is
a responsibility of a prosecutor after an arrest has been made. Having a staff attorney represent
the City at all stages of prosecution will help protect crime victims because a prosecutor who is
present at preliminary appearances and arraignment can address issues of bail, pretrial release,
and whether no-contact orders are necessary. The citizens of Tumwater, especially crime
victims, will benefit from the increased accountability that will come from bringing this position
in-house as a 1/2 FTE position. The position will also provide a dedicated staff attorney for
purposes of police advice relating to investigations and review of criminal charges.
Alternatives:

1. Continue the prosecutor position as a contract position at $22,000 plus per year

Description of Improvement: Purchase two new licenses of ArcView GIS (mapping) software
for use by long-range planning staff in the preparation of maps, studies and plans. The new
version of the software would be an upgrade of the current version that has been an important
planning tool for staff over the past five years. A significant amount of mapping data is provided
from outside agencies. New software will allow staff to continue use of mapping data created by
outside sources. This has become increasingly difficult as other agencies have upgraded their
mapping software. The new sofware also provides new mapping tools that allow maps to be
prepared more efficiently.
Alternatives:

1. Do not fund the software. City staff would continue to complete projects with existing
resources. The ability to prepare maps and reports that rely on data from outside agencies
would continue to diminish over time.

Description of Improvement: The citizens, and especially victims of crime in Tumwater, will
benefit from the increased community safety and accountability that will come from having a
probation officer track a defendant's compliance with court-ordered conditions. The municipal
court judge will be able to make better-informed decisions due to the tracking and subsequent
reporting to be presented by a probation officer, regarding offender compliance. Probation
tracking will assure that the offenders complete court-ordered conditions, including: alcohol/drug
treatment, domestic violence treatment, anger management treatment, etc., or face
consequences of jail time for non-compliance. This position will be a 1/2 FTE.

Implication of Denial:

Tumwater is the only city among Olympia,
Lacey and Thurston County without a
probation department.

     Increased risk of recidivism due to non
compliance with court-ordered treatment.
Recidivism impacts all tax-payers due to new
offenses which must be prosecuted at
taxpayer expense.

                                               Person: Rick Sapp
Description of Improvement:           As the number of large and complex structures containing many
employees increases, the need to continue and expand the fire inspection program increases. The
complexity and size of these buildings will not allow the engine company to conduct even the basic
inspections as they do currently. September 11, 2001 has shown the importance of not only the fire
systems, but that maintaining the exits are aboslutely critical when all else fails. To protect these citizens,
regular visits by the Fire Department are important. The advantage of hiring an Inspector/Terrorism
Specialist would allow the engine companies more time to train and perform pre-fire plans. An additional
person would allow for more personal reinspections, particularly in uncooperative or complex structures.
It is expected that this inspector would be line qualified and able to aid in fire response and fire
investigation during his/her working hours.

The cost of this position could be offset by instituting a fire inspection fee program. While this would not
completely offset the annual cost, it would reduce it substantially and as the city grows, this program
would have the resources to grow with it. The Fire Inspection Fee Program should be based on a basic
fee for all inspections, multiplied by a size factor and multiplied by a degree of difficulty. This would mean
that a small insurance office would pay a minimum, maybe $25 while a large complex structure like the L
& I building would pay substantially more. These fees would be charged to state and county agencies as
well which pay little or nothing at this time. Preliminary estimates using a base rate of $25, 3 degrees of
difficulty and 6 degrees of complexity would generate around $38,000 per year.

As an added benefit the Inspector would assist in coordinating the city's Emergency Management
Program. The field of the Emergency Management has grown tremendously since 9-11 with the
preparations for a weapons of mass destruction incident. The federal government is putting many
resources into this program at this time which requires a lot of staff participation to benefit from them.
This person would also help oversee the setup, maintenance and training of city staff on EOC Operations.
During a disaster the Inspector would be available as a first responder and would be qualified to help with
post disaster inspections of buildings. It is envisioned that this person would spend up to 1/3 of their time
on Terrorism/Emergency Management.

Description of Improvement: The voices of crime victims have gained increased recognition
within the criminal justice system. Crime victims now have a right to address court prior to
sentencing when a defendant has been convicted. The City of Tumwater can provide an
advocate to crime victims by contracting for the provision of services with a trained victim
advocate. The citizens of Tumwater, especially crime victims, will benefit from this advocacy, as
victim advocates are trained to assist crime victims and witnesses through the confusing
criminal justice process, help victims obtain protection orders, and crime victim assistance
funds. Victim advocates can assist crime victims in obtaining court-ordered restitution from
offenders. Victim advocates are increasingly becoming an integral part of a prosecution "team,"
and their services are extremely helpful to prosecutors who utilize their services and training in
working with preparing victims for motion hearings and trials.

Description of Improvement: The Tumwater Fall Harvest Festival has grown since 2001 with
more participants presenting events and more community in attendance. There is only one paid
staff person to coordinate the Festival. Currently the Festival has no dedicated funding from the
City; it is dependent on fundraising from private and other sources. The Festival is a free event
sponsored by the City and promotes a stronger sense of community. A commitment of
dedicated funding for the Festival is necessary for it to continue as a City-sponsored event.
Alternatives:

1. Limit the growth of the Fall Harvest Festival.
