the 3r. did is very simple. if that happens at the issuance, we cannot update that. it was issued after completion happened. as for illegal use -- as for legal use, this was one of the biggest challenges for us. let's say that they came back to us all 42 from the dwelling. -- for a two family dwelling.
let's say that we need the applicants to provide us with property cards and water records. that will help us to see how come it becomes too as opposed to one-family dwelling. after picking the document we do and other research, just to make sure. we provide a package with that the building permit. every document that we have. we bring it up to the dirt -- deputy director of inspection services. we handed to him. he will look through all the
documentation and give that determination. yes, this can be a legal close family dwelling. >> does that accommodate the fee structure? when an inspection has to be made of a unit or building? >> really, there is no fee involved. but if there are building permits, i guess. >> is there a significant of occupancy in the code that can be a problem? >> sometimes. >> how often does that take place? i know that when there was the glut of construction that was
boosters increased. you will not walk out a merrimack -- you'll love to go ustomers also mentioned start time.ers also mentioned start i was bewildered by this strange requirement debt when it comes to the wheels i would like to season and though of that. >> commissioners, may i make a comment? >> yes. were of the reasons we topeka let customers it sold we had
and we help them to put it in their role. >> how many stations are available for public use? >> we have three machines. and we have three other machines with four computers bore the new work permits. >> additional questions? is there a direction by which much of the microfiche film is going to get scan? >> we have that problem in the budget, the project is going forward as we speak to convert all of our existing current
records, be they microfiche roles, applicant cards, or other media and we do end with the funny is funded >> more important -- funny. >> by itself, making a profit from it is hard to read. >> what the current that does in order to print copies from the rolls of each image so that they can print from the card rather than the film images, which do not print well.
even that is a link that they have processed. >> part of the system, it would be buying in view only. we would have to knock down the permit images? >> plans are copyrighted and prepared by a designer. you can view them, but you cannot print them. they would have to go back through a process. some bank buildings and so forth and so the senate plans
to get them to people who will use temps there are all sorts of levels that need to be done manually. they will have to figure out if this building is available to be viewed publicly. this is part of the technology that will interface with the permit tracking system. crosse links so that you can pull up the information in the scan. >> in terms of security if i have not, at -- cad take a picture with it.
and that it is caught be written. that student public records would be available online. anything that is not being made public record, we would have to go through the records management or 3r process. >> some of these have been world war i processed. [laughter] >> questions and matters, commissioners? any inquiries employe? >> commissioner walker. >> as i did if we could get an update as to what is happening,
our next meeting is in april, the third wednesday. >> what are the schedules of the nomination committee? >> litigation met yesterday. the nomination i do not think there are any appointments to do until 2013, but we do have -- ken cleveland was appointed to something by mayor newsom. we have one lady, jane martin who was going to come on board, but decided not to go through the process. i will send out the information to the commissioners. maybe you can help recruit for those two seats. we are ok as far as quorums,
agendas. all of those committees are doing fine. commissioner hechanova: that is what i wanted to make sure, that we had a quorum. >> do we have any comments, public comment on those items? seeing none, we can move on to item 10. adjournment. commissioner hechanova: motion to adjourn. we are now adjourned.
>> it has been amazing. the people have been so gracious and so supportive of what we're doing. the energy here is fantastic with so many couples getting married. it's just been an absolutely fantastic experience, so wonderful. >> by the power vested in me, i declare you spouses for life. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> to actually be able to get married and be a part of this time in history and time in our history is amazing. >> this is a momentous occasion for us to be able to actually have this opportunity to have equal rights. >> we have been together for 14 years. everyone is so welcoming.
it's been all set up and people have guided us from step to step. it's been easy. there was live music. people are so friendly and excited. so excited for us. >> it's really great. >> yeah. >> and salvador is party a here to known as party a. >> on the out it looks pretty simple. you come in, you made your appointment. you pay. you go here for your license. you got there to get married. you go there if you want to purchase a certified copy. behind the scenes, there was just this monumental just mountain of work, the details into everything that we had to do and we quickly realized that we were not ready to issue the numbers of licenses that people are anticipating that we would need to issue. we definitely did not want people waiting in long lines. this is somebody's wedding. you want to be able to plan and invite your family and friends.
know what time you are able to get your marriage license, know what time you're going to have your ceremony. >> thanks for volunteering. >> we got city volunteers, we got members of the public volunteering. we had our regular volunteers volunteering. we had such an overwhelming response from city employees, from the members of the general public that we had way more volunteers than we could ever have hoped for. we had to come up with a training program. i mean, there are different functions of this whole operation. you were either, you know a check-in person. you were a greeter. you were part of the license issuing unit. you were deputy marriage commissioner, or you were on the recording side. each one of those functions required a different set of
skills, a different oath of office if they needed to be sworn in as a deputy county clerk to issue marriage licenses or as a deputy county recorder if they were going to register the marriage licenses or the deputy marriage commissioner if they were going to be performing ceremonies. >> donna, place the ring on her ring finger. >> the marriage commissioner training was only about a half hour. it was very simple. very well run, very smooth and then we were all sworn in. >> they said we would get our scheduled sunday night and so 7:00, 8:00, 10:00, you know, i got it at 11:00. this person who was orchestrating all of the shifts and the volunteers and who does what, you know, said from her office sunday night at 11:00. they are just really helping each other. it's a wonderful atmosphere in that way. >> have you filled out an application? >> not yet. you want to do that. >> take this right over there.
>> all right. >> take it tout counter when you're done. >> very good. >> congratulations, you guys. >> for those volunteers, what a gift for them as well as us that they would take up their time and contribute that time, but also that they would in return receive so much more back because they're part of the narrative of someone else's love and expression of love in life. >> this isn't anything that we had budgeted for, so it was basically we asked our i.t. director to do the best you can, you know, belling, borrow, steal if you have to and get us what you need to do this. and he knew what the mission was. he knew what our goal was. and, you know, with our i.t. grids and our software vender, they really came together and pulled it together for us. it made it possible for us to be able to serve as many couples as we have been. >> so once you're ready, you and your husband to be or wife
need to be need to check in here and check in again, ok. are you also going to get married today? >> yeah. >> let's process you one by one. do your license in, exit and re-enter again check in at that desk. >> our wedding is at 3:00. >> as long as we get you in today. >> we're getting married at 2:30. >> don't worry about the time line. we're greeting people at the doorway and either directing them to the services they need on this side which is licensing or the services on this side which is actually getting the ceremony performed. >> this is an opportunity to choose to be a part of history. many times history happens to us, but in this case, you can choose to be a part of it. this is a very historic day and so i'm very, very proud to be here. >> i have been volunteering. last monday i performed 12 different marriage smones. the least amount of time that
any of the couples that i married have been together is two years. most of the couples have been together eight, nine, 10, i'd say 70% have been together at least that long if not longer. >> there is a lot of misconception about who gay and lesbian people are. it's important that people see that we love our husbands and wives to be and love our children and have the right to have families just like everyone else. >> it's important that we have experienced our own families, our own friends, and the excitement of the volunteers when we get here has made us feel wonderful and accepted and celebrated. >> there is a lot of city agencies, city departments, divisions that offer up their employees to help us out since overwhelming response, it's unbelievable at how city
government works. this is the time that san francisco city employees have really outshined san francisco's clerk's office didn't need to hear from the mayor to say what's your plan. they offered a plan and said here is our strategy. here is what we can do. we can add all of these computers here and there. we can connect our databases, we can expand our capacity by x. we can open up early and stay late and stay open on the weekends. it's unbelievable. we can coordinate all of the training for our volunteers and them in as deputy marriage commissioners and make sure it's signed and certified. that's an example and a model for others. this is -- what happens is when people prove that things can be done, it just raises the bar for what is possible for everyone else. >> it kind of went cooled plan and this is what we planned
for. in some respects, people have kind of commented to me, oh, my god, you were a part of history and how many couples did we mary? how many families did we start? how many dreams did we make come true? the whole part of being part of history is something that we are here and we are charged with this responsibility to with this responsibility to carry out.
