10:44 pm
legislation as well as others solutions for the purpose of improving fire safety here in the city and county of san francisco. this seven member inner agency task force will include representatives from the building inspection, public utility commission as well as the san francisco attorney's office. with the focus on fire safety specifically in multiunit residential and mentioned used buildings. we've had a number of fires in the last few months in a -- and a disproportionate numbers have occurred in the district causing three tragic deaths. not to mention the displacement of dozens of families and small businesses. so many people have been left homeless and unemployed. i'm proposing this task force she we can nurture inner agency
10:45 pm
collaboration so we can harness the expertise that we have within the city to efficiently improve prior safety and more specifically the task force will focus on three areas. it will review and make recommendations to this board on legislation to improve fire safety and multiunit residential and mixed used buildings. including legislation that i have already drafted which would one, allow housing inspectors to cite building owners weenie when fire alarm systems are out of date. two, to post sign and employing residents with the right to file an unanimous complaint about a fire safety issue. third, expanding the scope of fire investigations. the second of all point is this task force will suggest new amendments to the municipal code for the purpose of improving fire safety in terms of fire
10:46 pm
prevention measures, fire investigation, the processing and resolution of complaints regarding code violations as well as inner agency coordination and sharing of information. lastly this body will review and make recommendations to the board of supervisors on the feasibility of requiring the installation of fire alarm and fire sprinklers in existing multiunit buildings. we need to do everything within our power to protect the people of the city and county of san francisco in this task force will play a critical role. i want to thank caroline who has been working diligently on this issue. i also want to thank supervisor kim and her office for the leadership they have provided on this matter. >> thank you supervisor campos. supervisor christensen. >> as myemñ?ñ?ñ?uj)# [!tokuí[»çu!

added within existing buildings mean that we can add housing without harming the traditional historical fabric of our neighborhood. it's become my goal since the beginning to try to find ways to do this. i'm pleased to take this step. we have several building owners that have expressed interest in working with us to add these units. we look forward to adding this one other method in order to approve the housing situation in district three. >> thank you. supervisor cohen. supervisor farrell. >> i am introducing legislation that corollates to legislation that was introduced in the past. to ensure men and women in the sheriff's department have the same rights forwarded to police
10:49 pm
officers and firefighters. that is the presumptions of receiving health benefits. this law will give our sheriff the same opportunity that our current police and firefighters have to easily access worker's compensation. our sheriffs are brave and do extremely similar work compared to officers to keep the community safer. this law will ensure that any sheriff what comes down with cancer or hurt will afford their right of benefits. i to think supporting our public safety personnel and ensure they have health coverage is the least we can do with them. i met with a number of members of our sheriff's department who brought to my attention the fact they were not covered during the
10:50 pm
previous legislation. officers are exposed to additional risks. at the end of the day, i think we should be doing everything in our power to support the men and women of our sheriff's department who put their lives at risk. this legislation is a step this that direction. i want to thank the members of the sheriff's department as well as the dsa for bringing this to my attention. i'm introducing legislation that calls on the sfmta in coordination with our transportation authority to develop a white paper towards private commute shuttle services. most everyone aware of the private shuttle services that we're seeing in san francisco in my district. but also existing now in downtown neighborhood. these new services are
10:51 pm
unchartered territory. i do believe they're addressing a clear mark, they have a ton of ridership. in this authority two leading transportation agencies will drill down into the questions that are outstanding and provide key recommendations. specifically, i'm asking our mta and transportation authority to report back on whether and how these new private shuttle fit into current transportation. i'm also asking them to report on what jurisdictional control if any the city and county has when considering regulatory
10:52 pm
framework. the routing structures, training and insurance requirements, consumer protection, physical missions vehicle types. if and when these private services expand throughout our city, i believe we need to have appropriate policies in place that effectively district further growth. i personally have and know the sfmta has been very clear when communicating with these companies. i look forward to the forth coming report and plan to host a hearing when called a few weeks ago. >> thank you supervisor farrell. supervisor kim. >> submit. >> supervisor mar. >> thank you madam clerk. colleagues, in three days we'll be may which is the heritage month or asian pacific heritage month. i want to invite all of you and
10:53 pm
join me and the heritage month celebration committee for the cityside celebration at city hall this coming monday may 4th at 6:00 p.m. thank you president breed for accommodating the heritage committee. i really look forward to not only the monday event, which is free and open to everyone but also as we honor different leaders from our community that have contributed for decades and generations to make asian pacific american communities a great place. for more information go to w i wanted to thank supervisor farrell for the introduction on the studies on the private shuttles. i want to also request to
10:54 pm
