For Telecommunication Relay Services for the hearing impaired, please see the information located on page 2 of this agenda.

Telecommunication Relay Services

Telephone communication is one of the most important forms of communication in society today. Due to advancements in technology, telephone devices have evolved with new services and capabilities. Individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing, and individuals with a speech disability are following these trends and are rapidly migrating to more advanced telecommunications methods, both for peer-to-peer and third-party telecommunications relay service (TRS) communications.

Telecommunications Relay Service is a telephone service that allows persons with hearing or speech disabilities to place and receive telephone calls. TRS is available in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. territories for local and/or long distance calls. TRS providers - generally telephone companies - are compensated for the costs of providing TRS from either a state or a federal fund. There is no cost to the TRS user.

What forms of TRS are available?There are several forms of TRS, depending on the particular needs of the user and the equipment available: TRS includes: Text to Voice TIY-Based TRS; Speech-to-Speech Relay Service; Shared Non-English Language Relay Service; Captioned Telephone Relay Service; Internet Protocol Relay Service; and Video Relay Service. Please visit this site for detail descriptions, https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/telecommunications-relay-service-trs.

Don't hang up! Some people hang up on TRS calls because they think the CA is a telemarketer. If you hear, "Hello. This is the relay service .. . " when you pick up the phone, please don't hang up! You are about to talk, through a TRS provider, to a person who is deaf, hard-of-hearing, or has a speech disability.

For more information about FCC programs to promote access to telecommunications services for people with disabilities, visit the FCC's Disability Rights Office website.

BASIC CITY COUNCIL MEETING RULES

AGENDAS - The City Council meets Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00 A.M. The agendas for City Council meetings contain a brief general description of those items to be considered at the meetings. Council Agendas are available in the Office of the City Clerk, Council and Public Services Division, Room 395, City Hall, 200 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012, and on the City's website at lacity.org; or lacouncilcalendar.com.

Ten (10) members of the Council constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. The Council may consider an item not listed on the agenda only if it is determined by a two-thirds (10) vote that the need for action arose after the posting of an Agenda. Some items on the agenda may be approved without any discussion, however, any item may be called "special" by a Councilmember. If an item is called "special" it will be "held" until the remainder of the items on the Council agenda have been acted on by the Council. An item may also be called "special" if a member of the public has requested to speak on the item and a public hearing was not previously held.

The City Clerk will announce the items to be considered by the Council, however items will be grouped. For example, all items for which required public hearings have not previously been held are listed in one section on the printed agenda. The Council President will ask if any Councilmember or member or the public wishes to speak on one or more of these items. If anyone wishes to speak on an item, it will be called "special". The remaining items in this section will be voted on by Council with one roll call vote.

PUBLIC INPUT AT CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS - An opportunity for the public to address the Council on agenda items for which public hearings have not been held will be provided at the time the item is considered or during the Multiple Agenda Item Comment period. Members of the public who wish to speak on items shall be allowed to speak for up to one minute per item up to a total of three minutes per meeting. The Council has determined that a cumulative total of 20 minutes is a reasonable minimum amount of time for the Multiple Agenda Item segment of each regular meeting.

The Council will also provide an opportunity for the public to speak on public interest items. Each speaker shall be limited to one minute of general public comment each regular meeting for a cumulative total of ten (10) minutes. The Council shall not discuss or take action relative to any general public comment.

If you wish to provide documents to the full Council for consideration on an item, please present the Sergeant-At-Arms with 35 copies. Otherwise, your materials will simply be added to the official record.

COUNCIL DISCUSSION AND TIME LIMITS - Councilmembers requesting to address the Council will be recognized by the Council President in the order requested. For any item, the Chairperson of the Committee, or the maker of the original motion, or the member calling a matter "special" shall have up to six (6) minutes to discuss the item. All other Councilmembers may speak up to three (3) minutes each on the matter. After all members desiring to speak on a question have had an opportunity to be heard once, the time for each Member desiring to speak again shall be limited to a maximum of three (3) minutes.

A motion calling the "previous question" may be introduced by any member during a Council debate. If adopted, this motion will terminate debate on a matter and the Chair will instruct the Clerk to call the roll on the matter.

VOTING AND DISPOSITION OF ITEMS - Most items require a majority vote of the entire membership of the Council (8 members). Items which have not been discussed in a Council Committee and have been placed directly on the agenda will require 10 votes to consider. Once considered, these items will normally require eight (8) affirmative votes to be adopted. Ordinances require a unanimous vote (at least 12 members must be present) in order to be adopted on first consideration. If an ordinance does not receive the necessary unanimous vote, it is laid over one calendar week. The votes required for approval on second consideration vary and depend upon the type of ordinance, but a typical ordinance requires eight (8) affirmative votes upon second consideration.

NOTICE TO PAID REPRESENTATIVES - If you are compensated to monitor, attend, or speak at this meeting, City law may require you to register as a lobbyist and report your activity. See Los Angeles Municipal Code 48.01 et seq. More information is available at ethics.lacity.org/lobbying. For assistance, please contact the Ethics Commission at (213) 978-1960 or [email protected]

All other Councilmembers may speak up to three (3) minutes each on the matter. After all members desiring to speak on a question have had an opportunity to be heard once, the time for each Member desiring to speak again shall be limited to a maximum of three (3) minutes.

If an ordinance does not receive the necessary unanimous vote, it is laid over one calendar week. The votes required for approval on second consideration vary and depend upon the type of ordinance, but a typical ordinance requires eight (8) affirmative votes upon second consideration.

When debate on an item is completed, the Chair will instruct the Clerk to "call the roll". Every member present must vote for or against each item; abstentions are not permitted. The Clerk will announce the votes on each item. Any member of Council may move to "reconsider" any vote on any item on the agenda, except to adjourn, suspend the Rules, or where an intervening event has deprived the Council of jurisdiction, providing that said member originally voted on the prevailing side of the item. The motion to "reconsider" shall only be in order once during the meeting, and once during the next regular meeting. The member requesting reconsideration shall identify for all members present the agenda number, Council file number and subject matter previously voted upon. A motion to reconsider is not debatable and shall require an affirmative vote of eight (8) members of the Council.

When the Council has failed by sufficient votes to approve or reject an item, and has not lost jurisdiction over the matter, or has not caused it to be continued beyond the next regular meeting, the item is continued to the next regular meeting for the purpose of allowing the Council to again vote on the matter.

The City Council rules provide that all items adopted by the Council will not be presented to the Mayor, or other designated officer by the City Clerk until the adjournment of the regular Council meeting following the date of the Council action. A motion to send an item "forthwith" if adopted by ten (10) votes, suspends these rules and requires the City Clerk to forward the matter to the Mayor, or other officer, without delay.

RULE 16 MOTIONS - Council Rule No. 16, in part, allows a member to send an item directly to the Council without it having to go to a Council Committee first, by giving the City Clerk a motion (seconded by an additional member) during a Council session to be placed on the next regular available Council agenda.

PLANNING AND LAND USE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE REPORT relative to the acceptance of a grant award and execution of a grant agreement with the Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) to establish a framework of cooperation for the Los Angeles African American Historic Places (LAAAHP) Initiative.
   
  Recommendation for Council action, SUBJECT TO THE APPROVAL OF THE MAYOR: ​

AUTHORIZE the Director of Planning, Department of City Planning (DCP), or designee, to take the following actions:
 
  1. Accept a grant from the GCI in an amount not to exceed $180,000, and execute a grant project agreement with the GCI to establish a framework of cooperation for the LAAAHP project, for a three-year term and in an amount not to exceed $180,000, in substantial conformance with the draft agreement attached to the DCP transmittal report, dated May 4, 2021, subject to the review and approval of the City Attorney as to form and legality, and in compliance with the City’s contracting requirements.
     
  2. Set up a grant receivable of $180,000 if awarded the grant by the GCI in an amount not to exceed $180,000, and establish an appropriation account within the City Planning Grant Trust Fund No. 46Y/68, for the disbursement of funds for the LAAHP project.
     
  3. Submit a grant payment request to the GCI, and deposit grant receipts in the City Planning Grants Trust Fund No. 46Y/68.
Fiscal Impact Statement:
The City Administrative Officer (CAO) reports that there is no impact to the General Fund as a result of the recommended actions as the proposed grant work would be conducted by consultants with contract costs covered by grant funds received by the GCI. The DCP also reports that there is no additional General Fund impact as grant funds are solely for contractual services, and will be paid to the DCP by the GCI on an advance funding basis for payment to the selected consultant(s). These funds will not supplant existing work of the DCP’s Office Historic Resources (OHC), but rather accelerate the OHR’s efforts on the LAAHP project by providing funding for the DCP to utilize it on-call bench lists. Neither additional staff nor salaries funding are being requested as the work is part of the DCP’s existing budgeted work programs.
Financial Policies Statement:
The CAO reports that the recommended actions comply with the City’s Financial Policies in that the proposed LAAAHP grant project would not require additional financial resources from the City.
Community Impact Statement: None submitted.

ENERGY, CLIMATE CHANGE, ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE, AND RIVER COMMITTEE REPORT relative to the Professional Service Agreements with Browning-Ferris Industries of California, dba Sunshine Canyon Landfill (A Republic Company) and USA Waste California, Inc. dba Waste Management for Disposal Services for Municipal Solid Waste.
   
  Recommendation for Council action, SUBJECT TO THE APPROVAL OF THE MAYOR:

AUTHORIZE the Board of Public Works or two members of the Board, on behalf of the Bureau of Sanitation, to execute a professional services agreement for disposal services of residual municipal solid waste with Browning-Ferris Industries of California, Inc. dba Sunshine Canyon Landfill (A Republic Services Company) for a 10-year term with an option to extend the agreement for a seven-year term and an option to extend the agreement for an additional six months on a month-to-month basis and with USA Waste California, Inc. dba Waste Management for a 10-year term with an option to extend the agreement for a five-year term and an option to extend the agreement for an additional six months on a month-to-month basis, subject to the approval of the City Attorney and compliance with the City’s contracting requirements.
Fiscal Impact Statement: The City Administrative Officer (CAO) reports that there is no direct General Fund impact for these agreements. Funding is provided by the Solid Waste Resources Revenue Fund. The Solid Waste Resources Revenue Fund is not considered a full cost recovery fund as such the services provided by this fund are subsidized by the General Fund. For Fiscal Year 2020-21, the fund is subsidized by approximately $25.5 million. The subsidy has increased to $73.1 million for Fiscal Year 2021-22. The Solid Waste Fee has not been adjusted since 2009. The current rate structure is not sufficient to support the cost of providing these services. It is imperative that the City complete a rate study and implement a new fee structure to support these costs. Funding beyond the current year will be appropriated through the City’s budget process. The agreements contain a Financial Liability Clause which limits the City’s annual financial obligation to the amount approved in the corresponding year’s budget. Financial Policies Statement: The CAO reports that the recommendation in this report complies with the City’s Financial Policies in that expenditures of special funds are limited to the mandates of the funding sources. Community Impact Statement: None submitted.

  Recommendation for Council action:

AUTHORIZE the Department of General Services, to negotiate and execute a sublease to establish a new Council District 10 Field Office with the Metro, for office space located at 3695-3699 Crenshaw Boulevard, for a term of one year with two one-year options to extend, subject to Metro’s decision to extend the master lease.
Fiscal Impact Statement: The Municipal Facilities Committee reports that, at this time, the projected cost impact to the 2021-22 Citywide Leasing program totals $284,000, which includes the projected rental costs ($203,000), maintenance and utilities ($41,000), furniture ($20,000), and tenant improvements ($20,000). This projected rental cost assumes expansion of the lease space following the initial six months (January to June 2022), but does not include any allowance for tenant improvements for the expanded space as these costs have not yet been evaluated. However, if this expansion does not occur, the annual rental, maintenance, and utility costs would be reduced by $188,000 for a total first-year cost of $96,000 for all associated expenses.
