The following correspondence has been received: Letter dated 12/8/05 from Chief William Siffermann, S.F. Juvenile Probation Dept. thanking the SECF Commission for their support and willingness to extend use of Southeast Facility for calendar year 2006; response to e-mail from John Roddy, Esq., re: Whether SECF Commissioners are entitled to health insurance per S.F. Administrative code Section 16.700.

4.0               Director’s Report:
Dir. Moses introduced new staff Mariejie Arguelles, who has filled the vacant 1424 Clerk Typist position. Her primary duties will be to coordinate facility events as well as administrative support. Ms. Arguelles gave a brief background history of herself. President Brown thanked and welcomed Ms. Arguelles.

Dir. Moses reported that he met with Asst. General Manager Ms. Laura Spanjian to discuss how she can assist in promoting the Southeast Facility Commission. In that conversation, the reduction of general fund and clean water budgets were discussed. Ms. Spanjian assured Dir. Moses that she would be in attendance at future meetings to support both budgets. Also discussed were the following:

1) Security issues arising from CSOS students. Ms. Spanjian informed that new security manager, Greg Suhr, has been hired by the PUC. Mr. Suhr will tour Southeast on January 11, 2006. 2) General Fund & Clean Water budgets are in the approval process with the General Manager. 3) The 1030 Oakdale facility has been awarded to the Florence Crittenden and renovation will take approximately one year. 4) The moratorium banning all social events at the Earl P. Mills facility will expire the end of December 2005. Dir. Moses suggested a Facility Committee meeting be scheduled on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 to revisit that issue and to also address some tenant-related issues. 

MOTION: Moved by Kennedy, seconded by Person to accept the Director’s Report. Motion passed unanimously to accept report as presented (5-0).

5.0               Introduction of New Business By Commissioners:
Referring to email correspondence from Attorney Roddy re: eligibility of the Commission to receive health insurance paid for by the City prompted by question posed by Commission Secretary, Commissioner Parker further explained: It was assumed by the Health Service System (HHS) that all city Commissions including Southeast were eligible to receive insurance. It was later determined through the HHS that the Southeast Commission was not on the eligible list and therefore was not entitled to insurance. 

After lengthy discussion, it was determined that a letter be sent to the City Attorney requesting the eligibility criteria for health service benefits. Commissioner Kennedy also suggested if after review of the ordinance it is determined that this Commission was excluded, Attorney Roddy could ask the Board to amend the ordinance.

Commissioner Brown also directed staff to follow-up on the Commission’s request to not be considered advisory.

Commissioner Kennedy suggested the idea to install a commercial kitchen by some of the developers working here in the community be explored. Dir. Moses suggested the best way to approach this would be to get an estimate, as every donation to the City must go through an approval process.

6.0               Public Comment:
There was no public comment at this time.

7.0               Announcements:
Commissioner Kennedy reported that Lennar/BVHP Hunters Point Shipyard Holiday Celebration on Saturday, December 17 in the Alex Pitcher Community Room was a huge success. Commissioner Parker remarked that he was very impressed by the turnout in spite of the rain.
