1.   SUBJECT:          PANDEMIC INFLUENZA PRESENTATION
                       (DISTRICT: ALL)
     OVERVIEW:
     One of the most important public health issues our nation and the world faces is the
     threat of a global disease outbreak called a pandemic. There is particular concern about
     the avian influenza referred to as H5N1, currently circulating in Asia and parts of
     Europe. If a pandemic influenza occurs, it has the potential to cause more death and
     illness than any other public health threat.
     Being prepared and responding effectively to a pandemic involves individuals,
     communities, businesses, local, state and federal agencies, international countries and
     organizations. Much has been done to prepare locally for disasters and emergencies in
     general, and specifically for pandemic influenza. The report being presented to the
     Board, at the request of Supervisor Ron Roberts, will discuss local efforts in
     surveillance, preparedness and response, State and federal roles, and what the public can
     do in preparing for and responding to a potential pandemic.
     FISCAL IMPACT:
     N/A
     RECOMMENDATION:
     CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
      1. Receive the report on Pandemic Influenza.
      2.   Direct the Chief Administrative Officer to report back in 180 days with an update
           on the status of preparedness for Pandemic Influenza.

     ACTION:
     ON MOTION of Supervisor Roberts, seconded by Supervisor Cox, the Board took
     action as recommended.

     AYES: Cox, Jacob, Slater-Price, Roberts, Horn

2.   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 eligibility or income maintenance need level for the CMS
     program is $802 per month for an individual. Individuals earning up to $802 per month
     are eligible for primary care, hospital emergency and inpatient care, other approved
     medical services and pharmaceuticals. In Fiscal Year 2004/05, the CMS program
     provided care to approximately 15,000 certified eligible individuals plus approximately
     6,000 individuals accessing care in the emergency room, for a total program cost of over
     $54 million.



 12/6/05                                                                                  1
     On January 24, 2005, the Western Center on Law and Poverty filed a lawsuit against the
     County that challenges the CMS income maintenance need level. In response to this
     lawsuit, the County completed an analysis of the cost of living for a single adult residing
     in San Diego County. Based upon this study, it is recommended that $1078 per month
     for an individual, or 135% of the Federal Poverty Level be established as the new
     standard for income eligibility for the CMS program.
     FISCAL IMPACT:
     Funding for this request is not included in the FY 2005-06 Operational Plan for the
     Health and Human Services Agency. It is anticipated that the change in the income
     eligibility level for the CMS Program will result in a current year increase in costs of
     approximately $3 million, and an annual increase of $6 million. The source of funds is
     currently under review. It will also require the addition of 2 FTE staff years for FY
     2005/06 and 1.5 additional staff years for FY2006/07. Existing vacancies within the
     Agency will be utilized for these additional staff.
     RECOMMENDATION:
     CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
     1. Direct the Chief Administrative Officer to increase the County Medical Services
        income maintenance need level to 135% of the Federal Poverty Level ($1078 per
        month for an individual) and to implement program modifications as required.
     2. Authorize the Director, Health and Human Services Agency, to maintain the County
        Medical Services income maintenance need level at 135% of the Federal Poverty
        Level, effective July 1 of each subsequent year.
     3. Authorize the Director, Health and Human Services Agency, to conduct an
        evaluation every three years to assess the cost of living and adjust the income
        maintenance need level to the appropriate percentage of the Federal Poverty Level,
        if warranted.

     ACTION:
     ON MOTION of Supervisor Roberts, seconded by Supervisor Horn, the Board took
     action as recommended.

     AYES: Cox, Jacob, Slater-Price, Roberts, Horn


3.   SUBJECT:          EDGEMOOR AWARENESS CAMPAIGN (DISTRICT: ALL)

     OVERVIEW:
     The Health and Human Services Agency’s Aging & Independence Services (AIS)
     division administers a variety of programs serving seniors and the disabled, including
     Edgemoor Hospital.
     Edgemoor Hospital’s new, state-of-the-art facility is projected to be completed in 2007.
     This item requests Board authorization to competitively contract with a consultant to
     develop and implement an Edgemoor Awareness Campaign.




 12/6/05                                                                                   2
     The goals of the campaign include increased census for this distinct-part skilled nursing
     facility, a greater pool of employees interested in working at Edgemoor, and increased
     awareness of Edgemoor Hospital by the general public, potential volunteers, and
     donors, as well as referral sources.
     FISCAL IMPACT:
     Funds for this request are included in the Health and Human Services Agency Fiscal
     Year 2005-07 Operational Plan. The funding source is Health Realignment. If
     approved, this request will result in estimated FY 2005-06 costs and revenue of
     $100,000, and FY 2006-07 costs and revenue of $150,000. There will be no change in
     net General Fund cost and no additional staff years.
     RECOMMENDATION:
     CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
     In accordance with Section 401 et seq. of the County Administrative Code, authorize the
     Director, Purchasing and Contracting, to issue a competitive solicitation to select a
     consultant to develop and implement an Awareness Campaign for Edgemoor Hospital,
     and upon successful negotiations and determination of a fair and reasonable price,
     award a 16 month contract from March 1, 2006 through June 30, 2007, with an option to
     extend for three additional years, and up to six additional months if needed; and to
     amend the contract as required for changes to funding and services subject to the
     approval of the Director, Health and Human Services Agency.

     ACTION:
     ON MOTION of Supervisor Roberts, seconded by Supervisor Cox, this item was
     withdrawn at the request of the Chief Administrative Officer, on Consent.
     AYES: Cox, Jacob, Slater-Price, Roberts, Horn


4.   SUBJECT:         JUVENILE DIVERSION RESIDENTIAL SERVICES
                      (DISTRICT: ALL)
     OVERVIEW:
     For more than 25 years, the County of San Diego has provided Juvenile Diversion
     Residential Services, a program focusing on early intervention and prevention services
     for at-risk youth. Juvenile Diversion Residential Services engage youth who are at-risk
     of entering or re-entering the juvenile justice system. This program contributes to the
     avoidance of law enforcement and juvenile justice system costs.
     Juvenile Diversion Residential Services are provided through County contracts with
     competitively selected community based agencies. The current contracts will expire on
     June 30, 2006. If approved, this item would authorize the Director, Purchasing and
     Contracting to issue a competitive solicitation for a one-year contract with four option
     years, from July 1, 2006 through June 30, 2011 and up to an additional six months, if
     needed.
     This action will also authorize the Director of Purchasing and Contracting to conduct a
     competitive solicitation for technical assistance services for the Critical Hours and
     Juvenile Diversion programs.


 12/6/05                                                                                 3
    FISCAL IMPACT:
    Funds for this proposal are included in the Fiscal Year 2006-07 Approved Operational
    Plan. If approved, this proposal would result in no change to current or subsequent year
    annual costs and funding of $481,406. The funding source is Unsecuritized Tobacco
    Settlement. There will be no change in net General Fund costs and no additional staff
    years.
    RECOMMENDATION:
    CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER
    1. In accordance with section 401 et seq, of the County Administrative Code, authorize
       the Director, Department of Purchasing and Contracting, to issue a competitive
       solicitation to select contractors to provide Juvenile Diversion Residential Services
       if, after an RFI process, there is more than one respondent per geographical area.
       However, if there is only one respondent per geographical area to any of the
       services, in accordance with Board Policy A-87 Competitive Procurements,
       authorize the Director, Department of Purchasing and Contracting, to enter into
       negotiations with the respondent for Juvenile Diversion Residential Services and,
       subject to successful negotiations and determination of a fair and reasonable price,
       enter into and award contracts for a term of one year for the period of July 1, 2006
       through June 30, 2007, with four additional option years and up to an additional six
       months if needed, and to amend the contracts as needed to reflect changes in funding
       or service requirements, subject to approval of the Director, Health and Human
       Services Agency.
    2. In accordance with Section 401 et seq, of the County Administrative Code,
       authorize the Director, Department of Purchasing and Contracting to initiate a
       competitive solicitation to procure technical assistance services for the Critical
       Hours and Juvenile Diversion programs if, after an RFI process, there is more than
       one respondent. However, if there is only one respondent to any of the services, in
       accordance with Board Policy A-87 Competitive Procurements, authorize the
       Director, Department of Purchasing and Contracting, to enter into negotiations with
       the respondent for technical assistance services for the Critical Hours and Juvenile
       Diversion programs and, subject to successful negotiations and determination of a
       fair and reasonable price, enter into and award a contract for a term of one year for
       the period of July 1, 2006 through June 30, 2007, with four additional option years
       and up to an additional six months if needed, and to amend the contracts as needed
       to reflect changes in funding or service requirements, subject to approval of the
       Director, Health and Human Services Agency.

    ACTION:
    ON MOTION of Supervisor Roberts, seconded by Supervisor Cox, the Board took
    action as recommended, on Consent.

    AYES: Cox, Jacob, Slater-Price, Roberts, Horn




12/6/05                                                                                4
5.   SUBJECT:          CHECK IT OUT: MAKING LIBRARY CARDS AVAILABLE
                       TO FOSTER YOUTH (DISTRICT: ALL)
     OVERVIEW:
     Library cards provide a gateway to learning and knowledge. Books and other library
     resources not only educate us about our history and culture, but they often provide an
     escape from the stress of life and the problems of the day. Today’s action will give San
     Diego County foster children the chance to explore and learn through the ability to
     obtain a County library card.
     FISCAL IMPACT:
     There is no fiscal impact associated with this request

     RECOMMENDATION:
     SUPERVISOR COX AND SUPERVISOR ROBERTS:
     1. Direct the Chief Administrative Officer to implement a process to make San Diego
        County Library cards available to foster youth.
     2. Direct the Chief Administrative Officer to work with the 11 other library
        jurisdictions to make library services available to foster children throughout the
        County.

     ACTION:
     ON MOTION of Supervisor Roberts, seconded by Supervisor Cox, the Board took
     action as recommended, on Consent.

     AYES: Cox, Jacob, Slater-Price, Roberts, Horn


6.   SUBJECT:          HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES AGENCY – MAXIMUS,
                       INC., SUBLEASE AT 690 OXFORD STREET, CHULA VISTA
                       (DISTRICT: 1)
     OVERVIEW:
     The Health and Human Services Agency contracts with MAXIMUS, Inc., for
     CalWORKS case management services. CalWORKS provides funding for a full range
     of Welfare-to-Work programs for Health and Human Service Agency clients.
     MAXIMUS, Inc., provides these programs at the Agency’s southern regional office in a
     County-leased property at 690 Oxford Street, Chula Vista. Today's request is for Board
     approval of a sublease agreement with MAXIMUS, Inc., that will allow their continued
     long-term occupancy at this location. This is a four-year sublease, effective July 1,
     2005 and expiring on October 31, 2009, with rights of early termination available to
     both parties prior to that date. The Sublease also includes two, five-year options to
     extend the term.




 12/6/05                                                                                5
     FISCAL IMPACT:

10.   SUBJECT:          SEA CARGO CONTAINER REGULATIONS (DISTRICT: ALL)

      OVERVIEW:
      Over the past several years, there have been reports to the county of a noticeable
      increase of sea cargo containers located on individual lots in residential areas. These
      containers are often sold by the shipping industry to individuals once they become
      damaged or worn out and near the end of their usefulness. When these containers are
      located within residential areas, they are generally not renovated or improved, nor
      compatible with surrounding land uses and the community’s character.
      Presently, sea cargo containers are considered as buildings and are required by the
      county to obtain a building permit, except for those that are less than 120 square feet
      when used as accessory storage buildings without any plumbing, electrical, or
      mechanical permits associated therewith.
      Today’s action will direct the Chief Administrative Officer to review ordinances and
      regulations on the use of sea cargo containers specifically in residential areas and to
      return to the Board within 180 days with recommendations on ways to guarantee
      compatibility with surrounding land uses and the community’s character.
      FISCAL IMPACT:
      There is no fiscal impact associated with this action.

      RECOMMENDATION:
      SUPERVISOR JACOB:
      Direct the Chief Administrative Officer to review ordinances and regulations on the use
      of sea cargo containers specifically in residential areas and to return to the Board within

11.   SUBJECT:          SUPPORT FOR CASINO CONSOLIDATION (DISTRICT: 2)

      OVERVIEW:
      Unincorporated rural communities in San Diego County have been profoundly impacted
      by casino and casino-related development on sovereign Indian reservations. Some of
      the unintended consequences of Indian gaming include traffic, crime, decreased
      groundwater and changes in community character.
      Two tribes, the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians and the Ewiiaapaayp Band of
      Kumeyaay Indians, working in partnership with County officials and the State of
      California, have developed a powerful new tool to lessen the impact of one future
      casino.
      The tribes are proposing to co-locate a Ewiiaapaayp gaming facility on the Viejas
      reservation.
      The concept is called Casino Consolidation and it respects gaming rights, tribal
      sovereignty and has the potential to stem the scattering of additional large-scale casinos
      throughout our picturesque backcountry. Casino Consolidation was discussed at length
      during a November hearing of the Committee on Resources of the U.S. House of
      Representatives and federal legislation to advance the Ewiiaapaayp-Viejas proposal has
      been drafted. Today’s action would express Board support for Casino Consolidation
      which would allow the Ewiiaapaayp Band of Kumeyyay Indians to co-locate a gaming
      facility on the Viejas reservation.
      FISCAL IMPACT:
      This item has no fiscal impact.

      RECOMMENDATION:
      SUPERVISOR JACOB:
       1. Adopt a position of support for Casino Consolidation which would allow the
          Ewiiaapaayp Band of Kumeyaay Indians to co-locate a gaming facility on the
          Viejas reservation and direct the Chief Administrative Officer to add support for
          this proposal to the County’s legislative program.
      2.    Direct the Chief Administrative Officer to draft a letter for the Chairwoman’s
            signature to the region’s Federal legislative delegation, expressing Board support
            for Casino Consolidation legislation.

      ON MOTION of Supervisor Jacob, seconded by Supervisor Cox, the Board took action
      as recommended.

20.   SUBJECT:          PUBLIC ORAL AUCTION TAX SALE OF TAX-DEFAULTED
                        PROPERTY (DISTRICT: ALL)

      OVERVIEW:
      This is a request to approve the proposed sale of 224 parcels of tax-defaulted real
      property at a Public Oral Auction Tax Sale No. 7012 on or about Friday, February 24,
      2006, pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Code § 3691, et seq.

      FISCAL IMPACT:
      The selling price of each parcel will be used to redeem the defaulted and current year
      taxes. It will also pay all required fees and costs of sale, which includes the Public
      Auction Tax Sale Fee of $240.00 imposed under San Diego County Administrative
      Code §364.4, which became effective August 1, 2004.
      Pursuant to Revenue and Taxation Codes Sections 4674. through 4676. covering the
      filing period, notice requirements et al., excess proceeds remaining after satisfaction of
      all redemption costs and fees, are retained in the defaulted tax sale trust fund for a
      period of one year following the date of the recordation of the tax deed to the purchaser
      of the property. During that period, the excess proceeds may be claimed by any party of
      interest having a recorded lien interest in the property at the time of the sale. During
      this period, the Treasurer-Tax Collector exerts due diligence, proactively seeking to
      identify potential claimants through public notice and electronic title research. If excess
      proceeds exist after these efforts, the Revenue and Taxations Code requires that the
      unclaimed excess proceeds be escheated (transferred) into the County’s General Fund.

      RECOMMENDATION:
      TREASURER-TAX COLLECTOR
      Adopt the resolution approving the sale by a Public Oral Auction Tax Sale 7012 of 224
      San Diego County real estate parcels which became tax-defaulted on or before June 30,
      2000, and are now subject to the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Power to Sell pursuant to
      Revenue and Taxation Code §3691.
      Should a parcel not sell at the initial minimum bid as defined in Revenue and Taxation
      Code §3698.5, approve the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s discretion under Revenue and
      Taxation Code §3698.5(c), to offer the same property at the same sale or next scheduled
      sale, at a minimum price that the Treasurer-Tax Collector deems appropriate in light of
      the most current assessed valuation of that property or property interests, or any unique
      circumstance with respect to that property or those interests.
       Any parcel remaining unsold may be re-offered within a 90-day period in accordance
      with §3692(e) and any new parties of interest shall be notified in accordance with
      §3701.

      PROPERTY.

21.   SUBJECT:          ISSUANCE OF A REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS FOR A
                        FINANCING TEAM FOR THE 1) TOBACCO
                        SECURITIZATION AND THE 2) TAXABLE PENSION
                        OBLIGATION BONDS, AUCTION RATE SECURITIES
                        (DISTRICT: ALL)
      OVERVIEW:
      Given today’s low, but steadily rising interest rate environment, it presents an
      opportunity to either issue additional Tax-Exempt Tobacco Securitization Bonds and
      transfer the risk associated with the Tobacco Settlement Revenues to sophisticated
      investors, or to refund (refinance) the outstanding Tax-Exempt Tobacco Securitization
      Bonds issued in October 2001 to generate potential savings. Recommendations 1 and 2
      below are for the retention of a financing team to assist in the evaluation and structuring
      of a proposed financing. In the event additional bonds are issued, the proceeds would
      be deposited into the Endowment Fund established in 2001 pursuant to Board Policy E-
      14, and such funds would be used to fund qualified, health-based programs. County
      staff would return to your board for approval of the financing documents related to the
      Tobacco Settlement Revenues.




12/6/05                                                                                   19
    In addition, there is an opportunity to convert the Auction Rate Securities portion of the
    2004 Taxable Pension Obligation Bonds (the “ARS Bonds”) to a fixed rate to lock in
    today’s low market rates. These ARS Bonds were originally issued in variable rate
    mode and have been steadily rising over the last year.
    Locking the ARS Bonds would allow the County to cap its variable rate risk associated
    with a rising interest rate environment. Recommendations 3 and 4 below are for the
    retention of a financing team to assist in the evaluation and structuring of a proposed
    financing. County staff would return to your Board for approval of the financing
    documents related to the ARS Bonds.
    These projects are mutually exclusive; two separate financing teams would need to be
    retained due to the specialty of the Tobacco and Pension Obligation Bonds markets.
    FISCAL IMPACT:
    The actions of retaining the financing teams, if approved, will not result in any
    additional staff years or any cost to the County of San Diego. The financing teams
    would be paid solely from the proceeds of the financings. Should the bonds not be sold,
    the County would not be liable for any costs incurred by the members of the financing
    teams.

    RECOMMENDATION:
    CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER AND DEBT ADVISORY COMMITTEE
    1. Approve and authorize the Chief Financial Officer to issue a Request for Proposal
       (RFP) for Underwriter services for the proposed Tobacco Securitization and to

    2. Approve and authorize the Chief Financial Officer to issue a RFP for Financial
       Advisor for the proposed Tobacco Securitization and to negotiate with and enter into

22.   SUBJECT:          APPROVAL OF THE FINANCING DOCUMENTS FOR THE
                        GILLESPIE FIELD REDEVLOPMENT PROJECT
                        (DISTRICT: 2)
      OVERVIEW:
      On February 8, 2005 (1), your Board approved and authorized the Chief Financial
      Officer to issue the necessary Request for Proposals for a financing team comprised of
      an underwriter and financial advisor in order to issue additional tax allocation bonds for
      the Redevelopment Agency of the County of San Diego Gillespie Project (the
      “Agency”). County Counsel selected bond counsel through a separate RFP process.
      On September 12, 1995, the Agency issued $5,100,000 of revenue bonds (the “Original
      Bonds”) for the Gillespie Field Redevelopment Project (the “Project Area”).
      The proceeds were used for the construction of public improvements including streets,
      utilities, sidewalks, traffic signals and street lighting. Today’s low interest rate market
      allows for a refunding or refinancing of the outstanding revenue bonds and achieves
      annual savings. In addition, over the years, the Agency has borrowed funds from the
      Airport Enterprise Fund (the “AEF”) in order to finance additional improvements
      needed at Gillespie Field. The Agency has the capacity to issue additional tax allocation
      bonds to repay the loan based on the increase in assessed valuation in the Project Area.
      Therefore, as authorized by your Board in February, a financing team has been retained
      and staff has been working with the financing team in preparation of the financing
      structure and necessary financing documents related to the issuance of the refunding
      bonds and the additional tax allocation bonds.
      Your approval of the financing documents is recommended for the issuance of the tax
      allocation bonds in an amount not to exceed $17.5 million. Pursuant to Section 147(f) of
      the Internal Revenue Code, a TEFRA hearing (public hearing) is also recommended.
      Upon your approval, we anticipate to enter the market around the week of December 12,
      2005.
      FISCAL IMPACT:
      These actions, if approved, will not result in any additional staff years or in any
      additional cost to the Agency or the County. The financing team will be paid solely
      from the proceeds of the financing. If the Bonds are not sold, neither the Agency nor
      the County will be liable for any costs incurred by the members of the financing team.
      RECOMMENDATION:
      CHIEF ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICER AND DEBT ADVISORY COMMITTEE
      1. Pursuant to section 147(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, hold a public hearing.
      2. Acting as Board of Supervisors, adopt the Resolution of the County of San Diego
         approving: the issuance by the Redevelopment Agency of the County of San Diego
         of its Gillespie Field Project Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series 2005A and the
         financing and refinancing of certain public improvements for the benefit of the
         Gillespie Field Redevelopment Project Area; a form of Amended and Restated
         Master Pledge Agreement and a form of Second Supplemental Pledge Agreement;
         making certain determinations relating thereto; and authorizing certain other action
         in connection therewith.

      3. Acting as Redevelopment Agency Board of Directors, adopt the Resolution of the
         Redevelopment Agency of the County of San Diego authorizing the issuance of its
         Gillespie Field Project Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series 2005A; approving a form
         of Indenture, a form of Purchase Contract, a form of Second Supplemental Pledge
         Agreement, a form of Escrow Agreement, and a form of Continuing Disclosure
         Agreement; making certain determinations relating thereto; and authorizing certain
         other action in connection therewith.
      (Relates to Redevelopment Agency Agenda No. 1)

      ACTION:
      ON MOTION of Supervisor Jacob, seconded by Supervisor Cox, the Board closed the
      Hearing and adopted Resolution No. 05-224 entitled: RESOLUTION OF THE
      COUNTY OF SAN DIEGO APPROVING THE ISSUANCE BY THE
