                           CHARGES (DISTRICT: ALL)

         OVERVIEW:
         This is a request to adopt an Ordinance amending Section 363 of the County
         Administrative Code relating to fees and charges imposed by the County’s Probation

         effective in monitoring convicted sex offenders and ensuring their compliance with
         conditions of probation.

         Funds for this request are included in the Fiscal Year 2007-09 CAO Proposed
         Operational Plan. If approved, this request will result in direct costs of approximately
         $32,415 in Fiscal Year 2007-08, $37,500 in Fiscal Year 2008-09 and will result in the
         addition of zero staff years.

                           AWARD (DISTRICT: ALL)

         OVERVIEW:
         Wildfires, earthquakes and terrorism are just three of many threats that face the San
         Diego region. When an emergency occurs, it is critical to have the ability to pass
         accurate information from emergency managers to residents as quickly as possible. In
         addition to communicating through the Emergency Alert System and through the media,
         advanced mass notification systems can provide immediate notification to residents


     7/24/07                                                                                  6
         through phone calls, e- mails, and text messages. If approved, this request will allow the
         County to purchase a state-of-the-art mass notification system allowing for the rapid
         notification of impacted communities. This system would be available for use by the
         County and all cities within the County during emergencies and disasters.

         FISCAL IMPACT:
         Funds for this request are budgeted in the Office of Emergency Services. The funding
         source is the Federal Fiscal Year 2006 Emergency Management Program Grant
         (EMPG) funds. The purpose of the EMPG program is to improve local emergency
         management capabilities. If approved, this request will result in F iscal Year 2007-08
         costs and revenue of $200,000 and will require the addition of no staff years. Ongoing
         maintenance costs in Fiscal Years 2008-09 and 2009-10 are expected to be $19,000 and
         will be supported by subsequent year EMPG grant funds.

8.       SUBJECT:          SAN DIEGO HIV HEALTH SERVICES PLANNING COUNCIL
                           MEMBER APPOINTMENTS (DISTRICT: ALL)

         OVERVIEW:
         The Board of Supervisors adopted a Resolution on November 6, 1990 (47) establishing
         the HIV Health Services Planning Council (Planning Council), a requirement for the
         County of San Diego to receive federal Ryan White CARE Act (RWCA) emergency
         relief funds. These funds are used to provide health care and supportive services to San
         Diego residents living with HIV/AIDS. On July 25, 2006 (1), the Board of Supervisors
         reauthorized and reestablished the Planning Council. The RWCA was reauthorized by
         Congress in December 2006 as the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Treatment Modernization
         Act.



     7/24/07                                                                                  7
         Today’s action recommends the appointment of four new members to fill vacancies on
         the HIV Health Services Planning Council.

         FISCAL IMPACT:
         There is no fiscal impact as a result of this action.

         RECOMMENDATION:
         CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
         Make the following new appointments to the Planning Council, to complete vacant
         terms scheduled to expire on July 24, 2011:

9.       SUBJECT:           DONATIONS TO BENEFIT THE CHILDREN AT THE A.B.
                            AND JESSIE POLINSKY CHILDREN’S CENTER AND
                            AUTHORITY TO SEEK ADDITIONAL FUNDING
                            OPPORTUNITIES FOR CHILD WELFARE SERVICES
                            PROGRAMS (DISTRICT: ALL)

         OVERVIEW:
         The Board of Supervisors has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to support
         programs benefiting children who may become dependents of the County due to
         parental abuse, neglect or abandonment. As a result, the County seeks to strengthen
         services designed for at-risk children, as well as for current and former foster children
         and their families or caretakers.

         Donations to the A.B. and Jessie Polinsky Children’s Center (PCC), the County’s
         emergency shelter, benefit the children who, through no fault of their own, require
         emergency housing. The San Diego County Administrative Code and Board Policy
         require Board approval for the acceptance of gifts and donations over $5,000. The
         Health and Human Services Agency periodically receives cash gifts and in-kind
         donations worth $5,000 or more to benefit resident children at PCC. The Board last
         accepted 21 donations valued at $236,113 on May 9, 2006 (11). Today’s action will
         authorize the acceptance of cash and in-kind donations totaling $227,318, for the benefit
         of children at PCC and in-kind donations totaling $20,500 for the benefit of children in
         Child Welfare Services and Residential Services.




     7/24/07                                                                                 8
    Other programs benefiting at-risk children include Adoptions, Foster Care Licensing,
    Drug and Alcohol Treatment, Independent Living Skills and the County’s San Pasqual
    Academy for foster teens. Many federal and State grant opportunities exist for child
    welfare programs, but often require a short turnaround time for the application process.
    On June 13, 2004 (12), the Board of Supervisors authorized the Director, Health and
    Human Services Agency, to seek additional funding opportunities for CWS programs
    through June 2007. Today’s action would extend this authority to allow CWS to seek
    grants from federal, State and private foundation sources though 2012 to improve
    outcomes for children and families involved in the Child Welfare System consistent
    with the County’s Strategic Plan.

    If the County is selected to receive a grant, staff will return to the Board with detailed
    information on the amount to be awarded, match requirements and future sustainability,
    and for authority to accept the funds based on the grant requirements and terms.

    FISCAL IMPACT:
    Approval of these recommendations will add $227,318 in gifts and donations to the
    resources available to support the activities for the children at the A.B. and Jessie
    Polinsky Children’s Center, and $20,500 to the resources available to support foster
    children in Child Welfare Services and Residential Services.

    There is no fiscal impact from the requested action to authorize application for
    additional grant funds. If any grant applications are successful, staff will return to the
    Board to authorize acceptance of such grants in order to establish funding for programs.
    There will be no change in net General Fund costs and no additional staff years
    associated with this action.

    RECOMMENDATION:
    CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
    1. Accept gifts and donations totaling $227,318 to the A.B. and Jessie Polinsky
       Children’s Center from: Maxine Braunschweig Trust, Pure Flo, My Stuff Bags
       Foundation, KIFM, Imelda O. Decker, Child Abuse Prevention Foundation, Judy
       Hall, Marx Foundation, The Delta Kappa Gamma Society International Area XVI,
       Toby Wells Foundation, Greek Sombrero/Jamul Tuna Club, Carol L. Hopkins,
       Valley Vista Mortgage Corporation, Susan and Robert Mani, Children Uniting
       Nations, Bird Rock Community, CMF of America, Gentlemen’s Alliance; and
       accept gifts and donations totaling $20,500 to Child Welfare Services and
       Residential Services from the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation.

    2. Authorize the Chairman of the Board of Supervisors to send letters of apprec iation
       to the donors.

    3. Authorize the Director of Health and Human Services Agency to seek federal, state,
       and private foundation grants to augment Child Welfare Services programs which
       benefit at risk children and families, and current and former foster yo uth and their
       families or caregivers over the next five years. If the County is selected to receive
       such grants, the Board would be requested to authorize acceptance.

10.       SUBJECT:          COUNTY MEDICAL SERVICES PROGRAM
                            MODIFICATIONS (DISTRICT: ALL)

          OVERVIEW:
          The County Medical Services (CMS) program provides necessary medical care for San
          Diego County residents ages 21 through 64 years, who have no family support or other
          financial resources for medical care and meet prescribed income limits and other
          eligibility criteria. The current income maintenance need level for the CMS program is
          135% of the Federal Poverty Level (“FPL”) or $1,149 per month for an individual.
          Individuals earning up to $1,149 per month are eligible for primary care, hospital
          emergency and inpatient care, other approved medical services and pharmaceuticals. I n
          Fiscal Year 2006-07 the CMS program provided care to approximately 17,600 certified
          eligible individuals for a total program cost of approximately $67 million.

          If approved, this request would establish, pending the outcome of litigation challenging
          the current CMS eligibility formula, an interim CMS eligibility formula consisting of a
          monthly maintenance need level for access to CMS of 165% FPL ($1,404 monthly)
          with a required co-payment for individuals with income above 135% FPL. This
          program change will take effect by December 2007.

          FISCAL IMPACT:
          While funding is included in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2007-09 Operational Plan for the
          Health and Human Services Agency, it will require a reprioritization of programs and
          expenditures. Other programs will be delayed or not implemented as a result. It is
          anticipated that the change in the income eligibility level will result in a yearly increase
          in costs of $3 million. The source of funds is a combination of Tobacco Settlement
          dollars and General Purpose Revenue. It will also result in the addition of 0.5 full time
          equivalent (FTE) staff year.

          RECOMMENDATION:
          CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
          1. Direct the Chief Administrative Officer to establish, pending the outcome of
             litigation challenging the current CMS eligibility formula, an interim CMS
             eligibility formula consisting of a monthly maintenance need level of 165% of the
             annually adjusted FPL with a required co-payment for individuals with incomes
             above 135% of the annually adjusted FPL, effective by December 2007.

          2. Authorize the addition of 0.5 FTE position under the classification of Human Services
             Specialist to the Health and Human Services Agency budget for Fiscal Year 2007-08.


      7/24/07                                                                                  10
          ACTION:
          Noting for the record the addition of a proposed fee schedule for co-payments, ON
          MOTION of Supervisor Jacob, seconded by Supervisor Horn, the Board took action as
          recommended.

11.       SUBJECT:          APPROVE CONCEPTUAL SITE PLAN, PHASING, AND COST
                            ESTIMATES FOR COUNTY OPERATIONS CENTER AND
                            ANNEX REDEVELOPMENT; APPROVE AMENDMENT OF
                            EXCLUSIVE NEGOTIATION AGREEMENT (DISTRICT: 4)

          OVERVIEW:
          On December 12, 2006 (14), the Board of Supervisors selected the development team of
          Lowe Enterprises, Inc. and Fairfield Residential LLC to e nter into exclusive
          negotiations to form an agreement to develop the County Operations Center and Annex
          properties in Kearny Mesa. An Exclusive Negotiation Agreement was authorized for
          execution with Lowe Enterprises to commence planning and site studies for this project.
          The Board requested that phasing of the development of the County Operations Center
          be considered in the planning process and directed staff to return to the Board with a
          phasing plan and project costs for their consideration and approva l.
          The action today requests Board approval of a conceptual site plan for the County
          Operations Center; information regarding three phasing alternatives with cost estimates;
          funding of $4.5 million for site planning, programming, engineering, schematic design,
          CEQA preparation, project consultants, legal, and other related project costs; and
          authorization to execute an amended Exclusive Negotiation Agreement with Lowe
          Enterprises; direction for the Chief Financial Officer to develop a financing plan for t he
          project; and authorization for the Director, Department of General Services to
          commence site searches for all departments and functions that are required to be
          relocated to provide for the development of the County Operations Center and
          anticipated future development of the Annex.

          FISCAL IMPACT:
          This action, if approved, would establish appropriations of $4,250,000 in the Capital
          Outlay Fund, based on Fiscal Year 2006-07 fund balance available in the General Fund
          for site planning, programming, engineering, schematic design, CEQA preparation,
          project consultants, legal, and other related County Operations Center project costs.
          Additional staff costs to initiate site searches for the relocation of departments from the
          County Operations Center and the Annex will be approximately $250,000, also based
          on Fiscal Year 2006-07 fund balance available in the General Fund. If the Disposition
          and Development Agreement is approved, additional funding for County staff,
          consultants, and construction management services will be necessary and anticipated to
          be funded from the General Fund.

                            (DISTRICT: 1)

          OVERVIEW:
          The East Otay Mesa area is experiencing rapid population growth fueled by the
          completion of the Highway 125 extension to Highway 905. This growth increases the
          need for additional fire protection facilities. The San Diego Rural Fire Protection
          District (SDRFPD) is in discussions with land owners and the County’s Department of
          Planning and Land Use to site a fire station in this growing community. This process
          may take five to seven years to complete. In the interim, SDRFPD is interested in
          locating a fire truck and crew on a small portion of the County’s East Mesa property
          adjacent to the juvenile and adult detention facilities.

          Supervisor Cox and Sheriff Kolender are keenly aware of the need to provide timely
          response to fire and medical emergencies throughout the East Otay area. For this
          reason, we are requesting the Board of Supervisors authorize the negotiation of a ground
          lease with SDRFPD for approximately one- half acre of County owned land for vehicle
          parking and the construction of a temporary fire services facility at East Mesa. In
          addition to benefiting the community at large, the County will receive immediate fire
          and emergency response for its facilities. It is recommended that this benefit be
          considered as an offset to monetary rent, in accordance with paragraph 15 of Board
          Policy F-51.

          FISCAL IMPACT:
          The County will be receiving in-kind services in fire protection benefits and $1 annually
          from this lease agreement.

          RECOMMENDATION:
          VICE-CHAIRMAN COX AND SHERIFF
          1. Find in accordance with Section 15303 of the California Environmental Quality Act
             (CEQA) Guidelines, that this project is exempt from the provisions of the Act,
             because it involves the installation of a minor structure.
          2. Find that the lease of property to the SDRFPD is in the public interest and that the
             conveyance will not substantially conflict or interfere with the use of the property by
             the County.

             extend for purposes of vehicle parking and construction of a temporary fire services
             facility.

                            LANDSCAPING AT COUNTY FACILITIES (DISTRICT: ALL)

          OVERVIEW:
          On May 22, 2007 (12), on the recommendations of Vice Chairman Cox and Supervisor
          Jacob, the Board directed the Chief Administrative Officer to explore the feasibility of
          mandating drought-tolerant and fire-resistant landscaping for all new County projects,
          including all active parks, libraries, and roadways, and to report back to the Board in 60
          days.

          Staff has reviewed existing County policies and ordinances and recommends changes to
          Board Policy G-15, Design Standards for County Facilities. The recommended changes
          will emphasize the use of drought-tolerant and fire-resistant plant species, but will
          continue to allow the use of natural turf in active parks.

          FISCAL IMPACT:
          There is no fiscal impact of adopting this revised Board Policy.

          BUSINESS IMPACT STATEMENT:
          This action may positively impact the landscape industry.

          RECOMMENDATION:
          CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
          1. Adopt the revised Board Policy G-15, Design Standards for County Facilities.

          2. Direct staff to review and revise, as appropriate, internal department policies to
             reflect the revisions to Board Policy G-15.

          3. Direct the County’s Farm and Home Advisor, in collaboration with regional
             agencies, educational institutions, landscape industry, and other County departments
             to develop a model list of drought-tolerant and fire-resistant plants.

                           FORENSICS CENTER (DISTRICT: 4)

          OVERVIEW:
          On March 1, 2005 (13) and in a series of subsequent actions, the Board authorized the
          design and construction of a new Medical Examiner and Forensics Center on the site of
          Building 11 at the County Operations Center. The firm of Harley Ellis Devereaux was
          selected as project architect through a competitive Qualifications-Based Selection
          Process and has successfully completed the project design and preparation of the
          construction documents. The proposed Board action seeks authority for the Director of
          Purchasing and Contracting to amend the Harley Ellis Devereaux contract in an amount
          not to exceed $980,000 to proceed to the next phase of the project: administration of
          building construction. The contract amount is also amended to incorporate design
          changes required to align the building site plan with the Co unty Operations Center
          campus plan.

          Under the current project schedule, the site will be cleared and a building pad prepared
          in Summer 2007 based on the January 9, 2007 (12) Board authority to award a contract
          for building demolition. Today’s proposed Board action will authorize the Director of
          Purchasing and Contracting to award a contract to construct the facility beginning in
          Fall 2007 through early Summer 2009.

          A construction manager specializing in medical and laboratory projects, Project
          Management Advisors, Inc was hired pursuant to Board Policy F-40 and the January 9,
          2007 (12) Board authority to provide day-to-day oversight of the building construction.
          Today’s proposed Board action seeks authority for the Director of Purchasing and
          Contracting to amend the Project Management Advisors, Inc. contract in an amount not
          to exceed $900,000 to include construction inspection, construction materials testing,
          and post-construction management services.

          FISCAL IMPACT:
          Funds for this request are budgeted in the Justice Facility Construction Fund for Capital
          Project 1006566 Medical Examiner and Forensics Center. The sources of funding are
          General Fund fund balance and General Purpose Revenues. These funds cover all costs:
          design, engineering, demolition, site preparation, fees, construction management, and
          new facility construction.

                           (DISTRICT: ALL)

          OVERVIEW:
          The proposed amendments to the San Diego County Compensation Ordinance are part
          of the ongoing effort to manage and maintain a skilled and competent workforce
          dedicated to sustaining operational excellence and serving the public. These

          qualified candidates, and amending sections of the Compensation Ordinance.
