GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO THE MONDAY, MAY 3RD, 2021 WORK SESSION FOR THE GARLAND CITY COUNCIL. THE FIRST ITEM ON OUR AGENDA IS PUBLIC COMMENTS ON WORK SESSION ITEMS. I DO NOT HAVE ANYONE REGISTERED TO SPEAK THIS EVENING.

LET'S SEE. I'LL JUST DOUBLE CHECK THAT REAL QUICK.

BUT SEEING NO ONE IN THE QUEUE, I WILL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON.

ITEM TWO IS CONSIDER THE CONSENT AGENDA FOR TOMORROW NIGHT.

[2. Consider the Consent Agenda]

I HAVEN'T SEEN OR HEARD OF ANY ITEMS TO BE PULLED AND CONSIDERED SEPARATELY.

BUT OBVIOUSLY, IF SOMETHING COMES UP BETWEEN NOW AND THEN, LET US KNOW.

THAT WAY WE CAN MAKE SURE WE HAVE STAFF AVAILABLE.

AND NOW WE'LL MOVE ON TO ITEM THREE WRITTEN BRIEFINGS, ITEM 3A 2020-21 BUDGET AMENDMENT

[3. Written Briefings]

NUMBER FOUR. ITEM 3B, INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO SUMMARY.

AND ITEM 3C, BOND REFUNDING, ELECTRIC UTILITY REVENUE REFUNDING BONDS.

AND THE LAST ITEM UNDER 3D,ONCOR RATE CASE DENIAL.

COUNCIL MEMBER HENDRICK? NO, SORRY, I SAW YOU UNMUTED, I DIDN'T KNOW IF YOU IN THE QUEUE.

. ALL RIGHT, WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM 4, OUR VERBAL BRIEFINGS FOR THE EVENING ITEM 4A, C

[4A. COVID-19 Response Update and Further Actions]

OVID-19 RESPONSE UPDATE AND FURTHER ACTIONS.

AND THERE'S JASON.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. GOOD EVENING, COUNCIL IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU ALL AGAIN.

I'LL ASK MISTIE TO SHARE HER SCREEN.

AND WE'LL RUN THROUGH OUR TYPICAL PRESENTATION.

I WILL SAY THAT THE THE.

DAILY COUNTS FOR COVID-19 HAVE REMAINED BETWEEN 15 AND 30 FOR THE PAST MONTH, SO WE'VE HAD A FAIRLY CONSISTENT RUN OVER THE PAST 30 DAYS OF LOW CASE COUNTS, PARTICULARLY WHEN YOU COMPARE THEM TO THE PEAKS BACK IN DECEMBER OR JANUARY.

SO TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA WHERE WE STAND TODAY, OF COURSE, YOU'VE SEEN THIS SLIDE BEFORE, THE NUMBER IN BLUE AT THE RIGHT OF THE PAGE, TWENTY SEVEN THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED SIXTY NINE TOTAL CONFIRMED CASES.

THE VAST MAJORITY OF THOSE, TWENTY SEVEN THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED THIRTY SEVEN ARE RECOVERED.

WE HAVE UNFORTUNATELY LOST FOUR HUNDRED THIRTY FOUR GARLAND RESIDENTS TO COVID-19.

AND THAT LEAVES US WITH JUST UNDER THREE HUNDRED ACTIVE CASES.

TWO HUNDRED NINETY EIGHT.

YOU CAN SEE THE THE STEADY CASE COUNT THAT I MENTIONED ON THIS GRAPH, ALTHOUGH THE SCALE DOESN'T ISN'T EXACTLY GREAT.

BUT SINCE REALLY LATE FEBRUARY, EARLY MARCH, WE'VE SEEN A FAIRLY CONSISTENT LOW LEVEL OF COVID-19 ACTIVITY.

MISTIE, IF WE GO TO THE NEXT SLIDE, WE'LL TALK ABOUT EMPLOYEE IMPACTS, WHICH ALSO, THANKFULLY REMAIN LOW.

AS OF TODAY, WE'RE DOWN TO TWO EMPLOYEES THAT ARE CURRENTLY EXCLUDED DUE TO POSITIVE COVID-19. AND THEN WE HAVE A THIRD EMPLOYEE THAT IS EXCLUDED DUE TO HIGH RISK CONTACTS.

SO VERY LOW NUMBERS WHICH ARE DEPICTED ON THE GRAPH ON THE NEXT SLIDE, WHICH AGAIN, SHOWS THE SAME TREND THAT I MENTIONED A FEW SLIDES AGO THAT REALLY SINCE THE MIDDLE OF MARCH, THE CASES IN THE COMMUNITY AND IN OUR EMPLOYEE POPULATION HAVE REMAINED CONSISTENTLY LOW.

SO THAT'S A REALLY GOOD THING.

WE WANT TO CONTINUE THAT TREND AND GET THOSE CASES EVEN LOWER THROUGH VACCINATION EFFORTS.

SO THE NEXT SLIDE, WE'LL TALK ABOUT OUR VACCINATIONS.

THUS FAR, WE'VE ADMINISTERED JUST OVER SEVENTEEN THOUSAND FIRST DOSES AND ARE APPROACHING ELEVEN THOUSAND SECOND DOSES ADMINISTERED, WHICH, OF COURSE, THESE DOSES ARE JUST ADMINISTERED THROUGH THE GARLAND HEALTH DEPARTMENT.

NOW, THESE NUMBERS DON'T INCLUDE THE MYRIAD OF PROVIDERS OUT THERE, BOTH IN THE GARLAND COMMUNITY AND IN THE GREATER REGIONAL AREA.

OF COURSE, THERE ARE MANY, MANY PROVIDERS THAT FOLKS CAN GO TO TO GET VACCINES.

BUT OF COURSE, THESE ARE THE ONES THAT THESE ARE THE DOSES THAT WE'VE GIVEN EITHER AT THE PUBLIC HEALTH CLINICS OR AT BIG EVENTS AT HOMER B.

JOHNSON STADIUM. SO THE TOTAL DOSES ADMINISTERED YOU SEE THERE AT THE BOTTOM IS APPROACHING TWENTY EIGHT THOUSAND DOSES.

AND THE NEXT SLIDE, WE WILL DISCUSS WHAT WE EXPECT TO BE OUR LAST EVENT AT HOMER B.

[00:05:01]

JOHNSON STADIUM. AND THIS WILL BE ONE OF OUR BIGGEST EVENTS.

THIS IS THE SECOND DOSE EVENT, WHICH IS GOING TO WE'VE INVITED ABOUT TWENTY EIGHT HUNDRED PEOPLE WHICH ARE DUE FOR THEIR SECOND DOSE.

AND OF COURSE, THOSE ARE INDIVIDUALS THAT WE VACCINATED FOUR WEEKS AGO.

SO WE HAD A BIG FIRST ROUND EVENT FOUR WEEKS AGO.

WE'LL FOLLOW UP THIS WEDNESDAY WITH A SECOND DOSE FOR THAT GROUP.

AND WE'RE ALSO PROVIDING JOHNSON AND JOHNSON DOSES ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS AS LONG AS SUPPLIES LAST.

I THINK AS OF THIS AFTERNOON, I'M SORRY, AS OF YESTERDAY, SATURDAY, I SHOULD SAY, WE HAD JUST UNDER EIGHT HUNDRED J&J DOSES LEFT.

AND OF COURSE, AS YOU ALL KNOW, THOSE WERE RELEASED FOR USE FIRST PART OF LAST WEEK.

SO WE'VE BEEN WE'VE BEEN PROVIDING THOSE DOSES SINCE THEY WERE RELEASED.

BUT AGAIN, WE'VE PROVIDED ABOUT ONE HUNDRED JOHNSON AND JOHNSON VACCINATIONS BOTH HBJ STADIUM LAST WEEK AND AT THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT.

AND OF COURSE, AS HAS BEEN THE CASE FOR, I THINK, SIX WEEKS NOW, ANY CITY STAFF FROM GARLAND, ROWLETT, OR SACHSE OR ANY GISD EMPLOYEES ARE WELCOME TO COME GET FIRST OR SECOND DOSE AT THE HBJ EVENT.

AND I BELIEVE THAT THAT IS THE LAST SLIDE.

MISTIE, IF YOU CAN UNSHARE YOUR SCREEN JUST REAL QUICKLY.

AND I KNOW I MENTIONED THIS AT THE LAST COUNCIL MEETING, AND THIS INFORMATION IS ON OUR WEBPAGE, BUT OUR PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT IS PROVIDING COVID-19 VACCINES ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS, THERE'S NO APPOINTMENTS NECESSARY.

INDIVIDUALS CAN WALK IN AND GET A VACCINE TYPICALLY IN ABOUT 15 MINUTES.

WE HAVE A STEADY FLOW OF PATIENTS GETTING VACCINES.

BUT THERE IS NOT A TYPICALLY NOT A LINE OR A LONG WAIT.

SO FOR ANYONE OUT THERE WHO STILL NEEDS THE VACCINE, I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO VISIT OUR PUBLIC HEALTH CLINIC.

IT'S AT 206 CARVER DRIVE THE HOURS OF OPERATION ARE 7:30-5:30 MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY, EXCLUDING THE MASS EVENTS AT HOMER B.

JOHNSON SO WE'LL BE CLOSED MOST OF THE DAY ON WEDNESDAY THIS WEEK.

FRIDAYS WE HAVE EXTENDED HOURS, WE WORK FROM 7:30 AM TO 7 PM.

AND THEN WE'RE ALSO OPEN ON SATURDAY FROM 8:00 TONIGHT.

SO THOSE ARE THE HOURS THAT WE INTEND TO START THE PUBLIC HEALTH CLINIC FOR, AT A MINIMUM, SEVERAL WEEKS, CERTAINLY UNTIL AS LONG AS DEMAND DICTATES EXPANDED HOURS.

IN ADDITION TO THE HOURS THAT THE PUBLIC HEALTH CLINIC, WE ARE NOW SCHEDULING COMMUNITY VACCINATION EVENTS.

AND FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO MAY WANT TO ATTEND THOSE EVENTS, WE HAVE A CALENDAR, A LINK TO A CALENDAR ON THE VACCINE WEB PAGE THAT WHERE INDIVIDUALS, WHERE COMMUNITY MEMBERS CAN SEE WHEN, WHEN AND WHERE WE'RE GOING TO BE PROVIDING VACCINES.

I WILL SAY WITH ONE CAVEAT, A FEW OF THE LARGER EMPLOYERS IN TOWN OF THEM HAVE ASKED US TO COME BACK TO NIGHTSHIFTS OF THEIR WORKFORCE.

OBVIOUSLY, THOSE FEW EVENTS AREN'T OPEN TO THE PUBLIC, BUT THAT THOSE REPRESENT A VERY FEW NUMBER OF EVENTS THAT THAT ARE SCHEDULED.

AND WE HAVE A TIME AVAILABLE FOR MORE SCHEDULING.

SO IF ANYBODY OUT THERE LISTENING WOULD LIKE TO SCHEDULE AN EVENT, YOU CAN CONNECT WITH US THROUGH THE HOTLINE AT (972) 205-3900.

SO, AGAIN, IF YOU'VE GOT A VENUE, PERHAPS A NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION, A CHURCH AND A GROUP OF INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE INTERESTED IN BEING VACCINATED, GIVE US A CALL AND WE WILL WORK YOU INTO THE SCHEDULE AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.

THE ONE LAST THING WE'VE BEEN PROVIDING WEEKLY, I'M SORRY, DAILY UPDATES ON COVID-19 FOR I THINK ABOUT 14 MONTHS NOW, IT SEEMS LIKE FOREVER, BUT IT'S NOT QUITE FOREVER.

IT'S ABOUT 14 MONTHS.

OUR INTENT IS TO CONTINUE TO DO THAT, I SHOULD SAY, PROVIDED THAT THE CASE COUNTS REMAIN LOW AND CONTINUE TO TREND DOWNWARD.

OUR INTENT IS TO TRANSITION TO A WEEKLY CASE COUNTS AND FATALITY REPORTS BEGINNING IN JUNE. SO IF PROVIDED THE CURRENT TREND CONTINUES, IF YOU HAPPEN TO GET ANY QUESTIONS, COME THE FIRST WEEK OF JUNE, WE'VE TRANSITION TO WEEKLY UPDATES ON OUR WEBPAGE AND MAYOR I THINK THAT IS ALL I HAVE.

VERY GOOD. ANY QUESTIONS FOR JASON OR MISTIE THIS EVENING? COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS? THANK YOU, MAYOR. GOOD EVENING, JASON.

OH, HANG ON ONE SECOND. GO AHEAD.

GO AHEAD. I'M SORRY. GO AHEAD.

GO AHEAD, MAYOR? YES, SIR. OK, OK, OK.

JASON, AGAIN, THANKS FOR A JOB WELL DONE.

AND THE BIG, SO THIS COMING WEDNESDAY IS THE LAST EVENT.

[00:10:03]

AND YOU MENTIONED THE CALENDAR AS FAR AS COMMUNITY OUTREACH.

IS THAT SOME EVENTS THAT YOU CAN SHARE WITH US? I KNOW THIS IS ONE THAT IS FIRMED UP.

DO YOU HAVE PROJECTION OF WHEN YOU MAY HAVE SOME COMMUNITY SITES THAT YOU COULD SHARE WITH COUNCIL SO THAT WE CAN WE CAN FURTHER PUSH THAT OUT.

SO CAN YOU KIND OF SHARE SOME OF YOUR TIMELINE, YOUR STRATEGY FOR GETTING THAT INFORMATION OUT AT COMMUNITY SITES? SURE. ABSOLUTELY, SIR.

WE ACTUALLY, THE CALENDAR IS LIVE RIGHT NOW SO FOLKS CAN VISIT OUR VACCINE INFORMATION PAGE AND THERE'S A LINK [INAUDIBLE] WE ACTUALLY ALREADY HAVE EVENTS SCHEDULED, I BELIEVE OUR FIRST EVENT, LET ME PULL UP THE CALENDAR HERE.

I BELIEVE OUR FIRST EVENT IS THURSDAY.

THAT'S GOING TO BE A LONG TERM CARE FACILITY.

SO THAT'S CONSIDERED A CLOSED EVENT.

RIGHT. AND WE'VE GET THE, FORGIVE ME IF I'M NOT USING THE CORRECT NAME HERE, BUT I BELIEVE THE HISPANIC HERITAGE EVENT DOWNTOWN ON SATURDAY, I THINK.

WE'VE GOT THAT ON OUR CALENDAR.

WE'LL HAVE STAFF THERE PROVIDING IMMUNIZATIONS.

AND I BELIEVE WE'RE SCHEDULED ON SATURDAY 22ND FOR SAIGON MALL.

YES, WE'RE SCHEDULED AT SAIGON MALL.

SO WE ALREADY HAVE A FEW EVENTS ONLINE.

AND AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, WE HAVE THE CAPABILITIES TO ADD MORE.

SO, AGAIN, CHURCHES, COMMUNITY GROUPS, BUSINESSES WE'RE READY TO REACH OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY AND SEND OUR STAFF OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY TO BEGIN VACCINATING.

OK ON THAT INFORMATION. CAN CAN WE GET THAT INFORMATION MAYBE OVER WITH DOROTHY'S TEAM OUT TO US SO THAT WE CAN PUSH IT AS A NARRATIVE SO THAT WE CAN PUSH THAT INFORMATION OUT TO THE CONSTITUENTS, TO THE CITY? THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL. IN ADDITION TO THE CALENDAR THAT'S ON THE WEBSITE, COULD WE GET THAT INFORMATION SORT OF IN A PRESS RELEASE NARRATIVE KIND OF FORM SO THAT WE CAN PUSH IT OUT TO THE COMMUNITY? YES, SIR, WE CAN ABSOLUTELY DO THAT.

ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU, SIR. THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. SIR.

CARMINE JUST HIT YOU BACK. CAN YOU MAKE ME A HOST OF THE MEETING, PLEASE? I CAN'T. SO I CAN GET.

HAVE A LITTLE BIT MORE ON THE QUEUE HERE.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT, HERE WE GO.

THERE'S THE NORMAL BUTTON IT'S BACK.

ALL RIGHT. ANY ANY OTHER QUESTIONS FOR JASON OR MISTIE THIS EVENING? ALL RIGHT, I SEE NONE.

JASON, THANK YOU FOR THE UPDATES AND ACTUALLY, YES, I AM SCHEDULED FOR MY SECOND DOSE AT THE EVENT THIS WEEK.

SO I LOOK FORWARD TO JOINING MY 2000 SOME ODD FRIENDS IN LINE.

AND BUT YOU GUYS DID A FANTASTIC JOB WHEN WE HAD ALL THAT GROUP FOR THE FIRST DOSE.

SO I SUSPECT IT WILL BE JUST AS GOOD.

AND MISTIE, HONESTLY, I HOPE YOU HAVE THE QUIETEST EVENING EVER THIS EVENING WITH THE WEATHER MOVING AGAIN.

I HOPE TO NOT HEAR FROM YOU THIS EVENING.

SO THANK YOU BOTH.

YES, SIR. I HOPE YOU DO NOT ALSO.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT. WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM 4B STREET DEPARTMENT PROGRAM UPDATE, MR.

[4B. Street Department Program Update]

OLIVER. OK, I WILL SHARE MY SCREEN HERE.

I GUESS I CAN'T START MY VIDEOS, SO THAT'S FINE.

OK. SURE.

SO FAR, SO GOOD.

SO HERE'S THE.

IS MY PRESENTATION UP? YES, SIR, IF YOU COULD JUST GO TO THE PRESENTATION.

YEAH, THERE YOU GO.

YOU'RE THERE. I JUST I WASN'T SEEING IT ON THE SCREEN THERE.

I MEAN, I WASN'T SEEING IT ON THE VIDEO SCREEN.

THIS IS JUST THE REGULAR UPDATE THAT WE TRY TO PROVIDE YOU TO KIND OF KEEP YOUR STATUS OF WHAT OUR PROGRAM IS DOING IN THE STREET DEPARTMENT.

I THINK EVERYONE IS PRETTY MUCH AWARE OF THIS.

BUT THE THIS IS KIND OF THE FUNDING STREAM FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS OR SO OF FUNDING FROM THE DEPARTMENT. AND YOU CAN SEE, OBVIOUSLY, THERE WAS A HUGE JUMP FROM 13-14 TO TODAY.

ESSENTIALLY, THE BUDGET HAS TRIPLED IN CERTAIN YEARS IN THOSE WITH THE SHOWING YELLOW AND ORANGE ARE THE BARS WHEN WE WERE IN CIP MONEY THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS.

AND I THINK THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS, IS PROJECTED THAT WE WILL NOT NEED TO HAVE ANY CIP MONEY.

IN THE AS PART OF OUR BUDGET PROCESS AND.

JUST TO KIND OF THE ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'RE DOING IS TRYING TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE

[00:15:03]

PUBLIC, WORKING WITH PUBLIC AND MEDIA RELATIONS, WE ACTUALLY HAVE AN EMPLOYEE THAT WORKS OUT OF THE PUBLIC AND MEDIA RELATIONS THAT WE FUND THAT DOES OUR PRESENTATIONS FOR US, OUR REGULAR STREET TALK PUBLICATIONS.

WE DO THE CONSTRUCTION UPDATES.

WE'VE HAD VARIOUS THERE'S A LIST OF JUST KIND OF VARIOUS VIDEOS THAT WE HAVE CREATED.

ONE OF THE ONES IS WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN MY ALLEY IS RECONSTRUCTED.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN MY STREET [INAUDIBLE].

THAT'S ACTUALLY IN THE CURRENT IN THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF THE PUBLICATION.

AND WE'RE WORKING WITH OTHER DEPARTMENTS TO INCLUDE THEIR PROJECTS IN THE STREET TALK BRIEFS AND OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA.

AND THEN THINGS THAT WE'RE LOOKING TO DO IS WE'RE LOOKING TO DO A VIDEO ON WHAT TO DO WHEN WHEN MY STREET IS ACTUALLY RECONSTRUCTED.

AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO JUST DO A SERIES OF SHORT 30 SECONDS TO ONE MINUTE CLIPS OF DIFFERENT PROCESSES THAT WE DO.

JUST LET THE PUBLIC KNOW WHAT WE DO.

AND THEN PART OF THE THING IS TRYING TO MAKE SURE THE PUBLIC KNOWS WHO TO CONTACT WHEN THEY'VE GOT VARIOUS PROBLEMS. I THINK A LOT OF THINGS TEND TO COME.

STREETLIGHTS AND SIGNALS TEND TO COME TO ME FOR SOME REASON BECAUSE PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT THAT'S NOT OUR DEPARTMENT.

THAT'S ALL RIGHT. WE JUST FORWARD IT TO THE APPROPRIATE PERSON.

BUT IF WE CAN GET PEOPLE STARTED IN THE FIRST SPOT IN THE FIRST PLACE, THEY'LL SAVE THEM ONE LESS TRANSFER.

THIS IS A KIND OF A UPDATE OF THE STREET MAINTENANCE OF ASPHALT PATCHING UPDATE.

WE'VE ACTUALLY COMPLETED 16 FEWER POTHOLES AND PATCHES THAN THIS TIME LAST YEAR, AND THAT'S DUE TO THE CONTINUOUS REDUCTION OF SERVICE FOR REQUESTS.

AND THAT'S PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE FOR A COUPLE OF REASONS.

ONE, FOR ALL THE PROJECTS THAT WE'RE DOING THROUGHOUT TOWN CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS AND THEN THE OVERLAY PROJECTS THAT REALLY WE'RE OVERLAYING THAT THAT GENERALLY REDUCES THE AMOUNT OF THAT HAS HELPED REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF POTHOLE REPAIR REQUESTS THAT WE'VE GOTTEN.

THIS IS KIND OF A THIS IS A HEAT MAP OF THE CITY THAT'S CREATED FROM OUR CARTOGRAPH SYSTEM. AS YOU CAN SEE, WE'VE BEEN DOING A LOT OF THE DARK YELLOW AREAS ARE THOSE AREAS WHERE WE'RE DOING A LOT OF PATCHING.

AND YOU'LL SEE THAT WE HAVE A PRETTY, PRETTY ACTIVE PATCHING PROGRAM GOING ON.

BUT AND THAT, CONVERSELY, RESULTS IN THAT THE POTHOLE, THE HEAT MAP FOR THE POTHOLE REPAIRS IS DOWN QUITE A BIT.

AND THAT'S BECAUSE IT'S OF ALL THAT EFFORTS GOING MORE TOWARDS THE MAJOR PATCHES AND TOWARDS THE OVERLAYS, WHICH IS REDUCING OUR INDIVIDUAL POTHOLE COSTS.

AND OUR BUDGET THIS YEAR WE'RE TRENDING ON OUR MAINTENANCE BUDGET, WE'RE TRENDING A LITTLE LOW, BUT THE OVERLAYS TEND TO BE MORE OF A SUMMER ACTIVITY, SO THAT ACTIVITY, THAT SPENDING LINE IS NOT ALWAYS A TRUE STRAIGHT LINE.

AND WE WE GIVE THAT MORE IN THE SUMMER MONTHS WHEN WE'VE GOT OBVIOUSLY BETTER WEATHER AND GENERALLY LACK OF RAIN IN THE SUMMER MONTHS THAT WE CAN REALLY GET AFTER THE OVERLAYS.

BUT THAT'S JUST THIS IS THE LIST OF ALL THE ACTIVITIES YOU DO.

I THINK MOST OF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE ACTIVITIES THAT WE TAKE CARE OF.

THE CONSTRUCTION, ONCE AGAIN, WE'VE GOT THE STRAIGHT RECONSTRUCTION OF A CONCRETE SLAB REPAIR THE ALLEY CONSTRUCTION AND REPAIR AND OF COURSE, THE LEVEL LIFTING.

BUT WE ARE ACTUALLY THIS YEAR.

WE ARE THROUGH A LITTLE AHEAD OF BUDGET BECAUSE WE'RE AND, YOU KNOW, LAST YEAR WE WERE DOWN A LITTLE BIT WITH THE WITH COVID, BUT WE REALLY PICKED IT UP THIS YEAR.

AND WE'VE GOT A LOT OF CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS AND A LOT OF CONTRACT PROJECTS THAT ARE ONGOING THERE THAT GOT A LOT OF THAT MONEY SPENT IN THE FIRST PART OF THE YEAR.

FIVE YEAR, HERE'S JUST KIND OF A FIVE YEAR ROLLING ANALYSIS OF WHAT WE'RE DO, STARTING WITH WHEN WE REALLY KIND OF RAMPED UP WITH OUR OVERLAYS.

YOU CAN SEE THAT WE HAVE WORKED ON TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY FIVE LANE MILES OF STREET REPAIR AND STREET CONSTRUCTION.

THAT'S NINE AND A HALF PERCENT OF ALL THE TOTAL LANE MILES AND CITY HAVE GOTTEN SOME KIND OF ATTENTION IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS.

WE WORKED ON TWENTY TWO POINT FOUR FIVE LANE MILES OF ALLEYS.

THAT'S JUST SLIGHTLY LESS THAN SEVEN PERCENT OF THE TOTAL ALLEYS.

AND THEN WITH THE ASPHALT OVERLAYS, WE HAVE WORKED ON SIX AND A HALF PERCENT OF THE LANE MILES. SO OF ALL THE STREETS AND ALLEYS IN OUR NETWORK, IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS, WE'VE DONE WORK ON A ROUGHLY ON 15 PERCENT OF THE STREETS.

AND OUR ALLIES HAVE GOTTEN SOME KIND OF REPAIR AND OR OVERLAY AND OR RECONSTRUCTION.

SO I THINK THAT'S A PRETTY GOOD ACCOMPLISHMENT FROM WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING THERE.

JUST THE ESTIMATES OF WHAT WE'RE GOING WHERE WE'RE REALLY FOCUSING MORE ON THE STREETS RIGHT NOW. STREET REPAIR AND STREET RECONSTRUCTION AND DOING A LITTLE WORK ON THE ALLEYS, BUT NOT NEARLY AS MUCH RIGHT NOW.

LIKE I SAY, THE THE CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM RAMPED UP FROM THE CARTOGRAPH PROGRAM THAT WE IMPLEMENTED IN JULY OF 2018.

IN OUR CURRENT PROGRAM, WE ADDED A FOURTH YEAR.

WE ADDED THE 2020 INTO OUR PROGRAM AND WE'VE ACTUALLY ADDED SOME WORK IN 2021.

[00:20:02]

WE HAVE INSPECTED ALL OF OUR STREETS AND ALLEYS AND WE'RE PUTTING TOGETHER RIGHT NOW.

WE JUST MET THIS MORNING ON OUR FINALIZING, TRYING TO FINALIZING AND GETTING OUR LIST TO THE UTILITY COMPANIES TO EVALUATE WHICH PARTICULARLY WATER AND SEWER DETERMINE WHICH WATER AND SEWER PROJECTS ARE GOING TO GET REPAIRED.

SO WE'RE HOPING THAT THAT BY JULY, THAT'S PROBABLY MAYBE A LITTLE OPTIMISTIC, BECAUSE I FOUND OUT TODAY THAT THEY'RE STILL A COUPLE MORE WEEKS OF WORK.

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING TO DO IS WHEN WE'RE WORKING IN AREAS WHERE WE'VE ESTABLISHED OUR PROGRAM. AND THE ONES THAT DO BASED ON NEED, WE'RE TRYING TO LOOK AT THE ALLEYS IN THOSE AREAS AND ALLEYS AND STREETS IN THOSE AREAS WHERE THEY MAY NOT BE COMPLETELY FAILED.

IT MAY NOT BE A ZERO ALLEY, BUT IF WE'RE WORKING ON A COUPLE OF ALLEYS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND THIS ONE'S SLIGHTLY LESS WARPED BUT COULD WARRANT CONSTRUCTION, WE'RE TRYING TO THE PACKAGE AND LOOK MORE AT NEIGHBORHOOD SCENARIOS SO THAT WHEN WE'RE BUILDING STUFF, WHEN WE'RE CONSTRUCTING STUFF, WE'RE NOT GOING TO GET THE CALL FROM.

WHY DIDN'T YOU KNOW? WHY AREN'T YOU WORKING ON MY ALLEY? YOU WORKED ON THE OTHER ONE.

IT'S A LITTLE WORSE. AND SOMETIMES IT'S HARD TO EXPLAIN TO CITIZENS KIND OF HOW THAT EVALUATION PROCESS TAKES PLACE.

BUT THE SCENARIO BUILDER IS ALLOWING US TO DO A LOT BETTER PROJECTIONS, JUST KIND OF SOME HIGHLIGHTS. WE DID COMPLETE A MAJOR ASPHALT REHABILITATION ON THE ROAD TO, ON THE ROUTE TO THE HINTON LANDFILL IN SACHSE.

THIS YEAR, DALLAS COUNTY HAS FUNDED 50 PERCENT OF PROJECT COSTS.

AND WE HAVE DONE THE LAST MILE.

WE'RE REALLY SEEING A GOOD RESULTS FROM THAT LAST MILE PROJECT WHERE WE'RE GOING IN AND JUST KNOCKING OUT SLABS WHERE AREAS THAT HAVE BEEN REPAIRED MULTIPLE TIMES ARE GOING IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD. STREETS ARE IN REALLY GOOD SHAPE AND GETTING THE ONE OR TWO SPOTS THAT ARE IN BAD CONDITION AND TAKING CARE OF THEM.

SO AND THEN THE WE BEGIN THE TRANSITION, WE HAVE BEGAN THE TRANSITION TO THE RESIDENTIAL SIDEWALK COST REPAIR SHARED PROGRAM AND THE ARTERIAL CALLS COLLECTOR SIDEWALK REPLACEMENT PROGRAM IN OCTOBER OF THIS YEAR.

WE ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPING OUR OWN SEPARATE CONTRACT FOR THAT PROJECT SO THAT WE WILL NOT HAVE TO RELY ON THE LARGER CONTRACT WITH THE PROCESS AREN'T NECESSARILY AS GOOD BECAUSE IT'S MORE FOCUSED ON THE STREET CONSTRUCTION.

BECAUSE SIDEWALK REPLACEMENT PROGRAM WE WERE FULLY TRANSITIONED, WE'RE REALLY AND UNFORTUNATELY, WE'RE BEHIND SCHEDULE ON THAT TRANSITION.

WE DO HAVE ALL THE PERSONNEL IN PLACE THAT WE'VE HIRED TO DO THAT.

WE ACTUALLY THE NEW THE ACTUAL THE STREET TECHNICIAN WAS PROMOTED TO THE SIDEWALK REPLACEMENT. SO HE'S KIND OF TRAINING HIS REPLACEMENT, SOMEONE.

WE'RE WORKING WITH THE FINANCE AND ENGINEERING TO MANAGE THE FINANCIAL ASPECT.

THAT'S PART OF THE PROBLEM IS I THINK EVERYONE AGREED THAT WE DIDN'T WANT TO GET IN THE MONEY TAKING BUSINESS. SO WE'RE WORKING ON THE LOGISTICS OF THE FINANCIAL ASPECT OF THAT STILL. BUT WE ARE EVALUATING OUR REQUEST FOR ABILITY BASED ON THE NEWLY REVISED ORDINANCE. I'D SAY WE HOPE TO GO OUT TO BID NEXT MONTH WITH THE SIDEWALK CONTRACT.

AND BUT WE ARE IF WE RUN ACROSS THINGS THAT DO NEED IMMEDIATE ATTENTION, WE DO HAVE THE ABILITY TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE.

AND WE ARE TAKING CARE OF THOSE.

AND WE HAVE BEGIN EVALUATING ALL OF OUR ARTERIAL INDUSTRIAL AND [INAUDIBLE] SIDEWALKS THAT DETERMINE THE SYSTEM WIDE REPLACEMENT NEEDS, BUT AND DEVELOP THE PRIORITY NEEDS.

BUT WITH OVER 400 MILES OF SIDEWALKS ON THESE STREETS, IT'S GOING TO TAKE US A WHILE TO GET DOING, TO COMPLETE THAT EVALUATION.

BUT WE ARE ALSO COORDINATING WITH ENGINEERING, TRANSPORTATION, PARKS AND GISD.

THEY ARE STILL LOOKING AT THE NEW SIDEWALK CONSTRUCTION NEEDS AND ENGINEERING IS STILL ADMINISTERING THOSE NEW SIDEWALK CONSTRUCTION NEEDS, WHICH A LOT OF THOSE ARE ROUTE TO SCHOOL BASED LOCATIONS OR LOCATIONS WHERE YOU'LL SEE THE KIND OF THE COW PATH WORN WHERE PEOPLE ARE ALREADY WALKING.

SO IT'S LOOKING TO TRY TO FILL THOSE GAPS IN.

THE UNPAVED ALLEY WE HAVE, AS WE SAY, WE HAVE 986 UNPAVED ALLEY SEGMENTS AND THAT'S A LITTLE OVER NINETY FOUR MILES OF LANE AND THEN ABOUT NINETY FOUR MILES OF ALLEYS, THE THREE AND A HALF MILLION DOLLARS THAT WAS APPROVED IN THE ELECTION WOULD FUND APPROXIMATELY THREE HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR, AND THEY'LL PAVE US APPROXIMATELY FOUR POINT ONE ALLEYS.

THE MAP THAT WE CREATED GOING BACK TO 2014, THAT THE NUMBER OF SEGMENTS THAT WE HAVE THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT SEGMENTS THAT HAVE THREE REPAIR REQUESTS, TWO REPAIR REQUESTS, ONE REPAIR REQUEST. AND SO BUT THE INTERESTING THING I FOUND OUT WHEN WE WERE EVALUATING, WE'RE TRYING TO PUT TOGETHER A REAL QUICK PACKAGE OF ALLEYS THAT WE COULD JUST GO OUT AND PAVE. BUT NEARLY EVERY ONE OF THOSE HAS A SANITARY SEWER IN IT.

AND UNFORTUNATELY, MOST OF THOSE SEWER LINES ARE PRETTY.

OLD AND MOST OF THEM ARE GOING TO HAVE TO BE REPLACED.

[00:25:03]

AS A MATTER OF FACT, WE'RE CURRENTLY COORDINATING WITH THREE PROJECTS WITH THE WATER DEPARTMENT TO GET UNPAVED ALLEYS PAVED IN CONJUNCTION WITH WHERE THEY WERE ALREADY GOING TO BE REPLACING SANITARY SEWER MAIN.

THAT'S THE CELESTE VISTA ALLEY, THE CLIFF RITA ALLEY AND THE LEWIS RANDOLPH ALLEY.

SO THOSE SHOULD BE THEY'RE IN THE DESIGN STAGE NOW.

SO THAT SHOULD BE GOING TO BID PROBABLY LATER THIS YEAR.

AND THEN, YOU KNOW, THE GOAL HERE IS TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE KNOWN REALLY DRAINAGE AND RUNNING PROBLEMS IN OUR UNPAVED ALLEYS.

THAT'S OUR FOCUS INITIALLY.

AND THIS I'M NOT GOING TO GO INTO ANY DETAIL HERE, BUT THIS I HAVE JUST INCLUDED, JUST FOR YOUR EDIFICATION, THIS IS JUST THE LIST STARTING FROM 19-20 OF ALL THE PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE COMPLETED IN THE LAST TWO YEARS.

SO AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE'S A PRETTY LONG LIST OF STREETS.

AND THEN WHEN WE GET TO THIS PROJECT HERE, THIS IS WHERE WE'RE IN OUR CURRENT CONSTRUCTION PROJECT. THE ONES THAT WE HAVE SCHEDULED A LOT OF THESE FUTURE ONES IN THE ALLEY, THERE IS A BIG ALLEY PACKAGE THAT WE JUST RECEIVED AND 90 PERCENT PLANS ON.

AND SO WE SHOULD GO OUT TO BID FOR THAT IN JUNE AND GET UNDER CONSTRUCTION, PROBABLY EARLY FALL THERE. AND ALL THOSE ALLEYS ARE PART OF THAT CONSTRUCTION.

THE ONES THAT ARE LISTED AS FUTURE ARE PART OF THAT CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM.

AND THEN WE'VE GOT THE LIST OF STREETS THAT WE'VE GOT ONGOING AND THE ONES THAT WE'RE GOING THAT WE ARE WORKING ON AND WILL BE WORKING ON THE REMAINDER OF THIS YEAR.

THIS IS OUR THESE ARE OUR REPAIR PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE ONGOING AND SCHEDULED AND THEN THE SOME OF THE MAJOR, THE ONES WHERE WE'RE GIVING PROJECTS, SOME OF THESE ARE ITEMS THAT ARE OVERLAY AND THEN WE GET THE OVERLAY LIST.

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE'S BEEN PRETTY EXTENSIVE OVERLAY LIST.

THIS GOES BACK NOW. THIS GRAPH RIGHT HERE GOES BACK TO OUR ORIGINAL CALCULATION OF WHERE ` WE ARE WITH THE PCI.

WHEN WE LOOKED AT GETTING THE INCREASED FUNDING BACK IN 2013, WHEN WE WERE SEEING THE DECREASE IN THE PCI AND THE OCI FOR OUR STREETS, AS YOU CAN SEE, IT KIND OF BOTTOMED OUT IN T2018 AND IT IS AND IT HAS CURVED BACK UP AND YOU CAN SEE ACTUALLY WE'RE AHEAD OF THE RED LINES ARE THE EXISTING, THE YELLOW LINES ARE THE YELLOW/ORANGE LINES ARE THE WHERE THE PROJECTED OCI WAS AND YOU CAN SEE IN '21 WE KIND OF COMPARED THOSE.

SO WE'RE TWO POINTS AHEAD OF WHERE WE PROJECTED TO BE AT THIS POINT IN TIME WHEN WE DID THIS EVALUATION BACK FIVE OR SIX YEARS AGO.

SO WE FEEL THAT IT'S A GOOD TREND THAT WE'RE SEEING THERE AND THEN HOPEFULLY THAT WE WILL HIT THESE NUMBERS THAT WE PROJECTED MAYBE A LITTLE A YEAR OR TWO EARLIER THAN WE INITIALLY PROJECTED.

THE ALLEY PROJECT, AND YOU CAN SEE, THEY WANT TO GET IT KIND OF BOTTOMED OUT IN 17-18, ACTUALLY THE ALLEYS, WE DID SEE A SLIGHT DECREASE FROM LAST YEAR TO THIS YEAR. THERE'S A COUPLE OF REASONS BEHIND THAT.

ONE IS THAT PROGRAM THAT WE HAD HOPED TO GET ONLINE IS A LITTLE BEHIND WITH THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN WITH COVID AND STUFF.

SO WE HAD THOSE 13 ALLIES OUT ON THE OUT ON THE STREET AND COMPLETED.

NOW THAT IT WOULD PROBABLY HAVE GOTTEN BACK UP TO WHERE WE ARE.

BUT OUR PROJECTION FOR THE ALLEYS BASED ON THE REPAIRS VERSUS REPLACEMENT.

AND IN A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, WE KIND OF WE SWITCHED MORE INTO A MORE IN THE REPLACEMENT MODE. BUT I THINK SOME OF OUR INDICATIONS IN SOME OF THE FACT THAT THE PCI OR THE OCI HAD DROPPED A POINT WOULD INDICATE THAT WE'RE GOING TO REEVALUATE AND START LOOKING AT MAYBE GETTING INTO A LITTLE MORE TOWARDS GETTING MORE EFFORTS TOWARDS THE REPAIR LINE, TRYING TO PROJECT THAT 70 LINE AND TRY TO PUSH SOME OF THOSE PROJECTS UP SO THAT WE CAN IMPROVE THE OVERALL OCI.

YOU KNOW, YOU TEND TO GET MORE COMPLAINTS ON THE FULL THE NEED FOR THE FULL REBUILDS, BUT WE DO NEED TO ALSO FOCUS ON THOSE REPAIRS AS WELL.

THIS IS AN INTERESTING FACT, I SAW SOMETHING THAT WAS DISPLAYED ON THIS IN ONE OF RICHARDSON'S DISPLAYS. I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE GOOD INFORMATION FOR YOU ALL TO SEE, JUST TO SEE KIND OF WHERE WE ARE.

AS YOU CAN SEE, THE VAST MAJORITY OF OUR STREETS, IF YOU LOOK AT THE GREEN AND THE BLUE, THAT'S FIFTY SIX PERCENT OF OUR STREETS ARE 40 YEARS OLD OR OLDER.

THE OBVIOUSLY, THE 18 PERCENT IS THE THIRTY ONE TO FORTY, THE NINE PERCENT IS THE TWENTY ONE TO THIRTY, THE FIVE PERCENT IS THE LEVEL ELEVEN TO TWENTY AND THEN THE THREE PERCENT IS ZERO TO TEN. AND SO EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE BEEN DOING A LOT OF WORK, WE STILL HAVE A LOT OF STREETS THAT ARE FAIRLY OLD IN THE CITY.

AND SO WE'RE WORKING ON TRYING TO MAKE THOSE NUMBERS, MAKE THAT PIE GRAPH SHRINK AND GET MORE WHERE WE'VE GOT A LOT MORE THAT ARE THAT ARE NEWER STREETS.

AND THEN I THINK THAT KIND OF CORRELATES HAND-IN-HAND WITH HOW THE PCI IS GOING.

[00:30:05]

AND OBVIOUSLY, THE OLDER STREETS, THE AVERAGE PCI ON THOSE ARE NOT GOING TO BE AS GOOD, ALTHOUGH WE FIND A LOT OF THOSE, I GUESS, TENDED TO BE THE MORE WELL-BUILT STREETS BECAUSE THEY'VE SURVIVED 50 TO 60 YEARS WITHOUT HAVING TO NEED TO BE REPLACED YET.

AND THEN THIS IS OUR ALLEY, THIS IS THE SAME GRAPH LOOKING AT OUR ALLEYS, YOU CAN SEE THAT AS WE KNOW THAT WE'VE GOT, YOU KNOW, FORTY SEVEN PERCENT OF OUR ALLIES ARE 40 YEARS OLD OR OLDER. SO WE'RE STILL WORKING.

GARLAND WAS A CITY THAT WAS BUILT IN THE 50S, 60S AND 70S.

SO WE STILL HAVE QUITE A FEW OLD STREETS THAT WE'RE WORKING THROUGH TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF. AND THIS IS A BREAKDOWN OF THE THE PAVEMENT OCI BY OUR FUNCTIONAL CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM ARTERIALS, WE ARE GETTING CLOSE TO GETTING A 90 RATING ON OUR ARTERIAL STREETS.

OUR COLLECTORS ARE JUST BELOW 80, TRAILS ARE 82, THE RESIDENTIAL ARE STILL AT 76 AND IN THE ALLEYS ARE AT 70.

SO WE'LL SEE I MEAN, WE'LL SEE THAT WE HAVE PUT A LOT OF EFFORT INTO WORKING ON ARTERIALS AND TRYING TO KEEP OUR ARTERIALS.

AND THEN THE FACT IS, WHEN YOU DO AN ARTERIAL REPAIR WITHIN FIVE TO SEVEN YEARS, YOU'RE PROBABLY GOING TO NEED TO COME BACK AND DO SOME MORE WORK ON THAT ARTERIAL JUST TO KIND OF GET THE STUFF THAT FAILS SINCE YOU'VE DONE YOUR REPAIR WORK.

BUT IF YOU CONTINUE TO GO BACK TO YOUR ARTERIALS, YOU'LL STILL HAVING TO DO REPAIRS AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO END UP HAVING TO DO RECONSTRUCTION PROJECTS.

AND THIS IS JUST SOME MAPS OF THE HIGHLIGHTING OF SOME OF THE MAJOR PROJECTS WE DID.

WE COMPLETED A REPAIR PROJECT ON BOBTOWN ROAD.

FIRST STREET WE HAVE DONE VARIOUS SECTIONS.

YOU'LL SEE THAT SECTION BETWEEN MILLER AND ARMSTRONG HAS NOT BEEN DONE.

BUT THAT'S BECAUSE WE PULLED OFF AND DIDN'T DO THAT BECAUSE THERE IS A WATER PROJECT, SANITARY SEWER REPLACEMENT AND WATER REPLACEMENT PROJECT IN THAT STREET THAT WILL COMMENCE SHORTLY.

I THINK THEY'VE ALREADY STARTED TO DO A LITTLE BIT OF THE THE PRELIMINARY WORK FOR THAT.

FOREST LANE, WE JUST COMPLETED THAT PROJECT IN THE LAST YEAR, SO WE'VE GONE ALL THE WAY OUT TO THE CITY LIMITS FROM FROM GARLAND ROAD AND TAKING CARE OF A LOT OF STUFF, A LOT OF FAILED AREAS ON THAT STREET.

NORTH GARLAND WE WORKED ON RECENTLY.

THAT'S THE AREA BETWEEN ARAPAHOE AND BELTLINE.

ROSE HILL ROAD DOWN THERE SOUTH OF 30.

DUCK CREEK ROAD IS OUR, WE'VE ACTUALLY DONE OUR LEVEL LIFTING TO THAT.

WE'VE DONE THE LIFTING AND WHAT WE DO ON A LOT OF ARTERIAL STREETS, WHICH IS WE'LL GO THROUGH AND SEND OUR LEVEL LIFTING CONTRACTOR THROUGH AND WE'LL LIFT THE SLABS THAT WE CAN LIFT. AND THEN WE'LL COME BACK AND STABILIZE THOSE SLABS AND EVEN STABILIZE SOME OF THE FAILED ONES. AND THEN WE'LL COME BACK AND REPLACE THE SLABS AFTERWARDS SO THAT ONCE WE DO BOTH OF THOSE PROCESSES THAN WE'VE GOT, WE'RE IN PRETTY GOOD SHAPE WITH THE CONDITION OF THOSE ROADWAYS.

MILLER ROAD THERE ARE VARIOUS PROJECTS GOING ON.

WE'RE CURRENTLY WORKING BETWEEN FIRST AND CENTERVILLE.

WE RECENTLY COMPLETED FROM CENTERVILLE TO THE CITY LIMITS THE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENTS WORKING ON THAT SECTION BETWEEN GLENBROOK AND SATURN.

AND I THINK THERE ARE SOME REPAIRS, UTILITY REPAIRS ALSO GOING THAT SOME PAVEMENT REPAIRS WILL TAKE PLACE WEST OF GARLAND AVENUE.

CENTERVILLE WE HAVE DONE SOME REPAIRS, WE'RE ACTUALLY ACTUALLY HOLDING OFF ON CENTERVILLE, WE STARTED DOING A LITTLE WORK, BUT WE HAVE NOW PULLED OFF AND ARE HOLDING OFF UNTIL DGNO IS GETTING READY TO DO A REPAIR IN THE MIDDLE OF MAY ON THEIR TRACK.

THEY ARE JUST NORTH OF THE WATER TREATMENT PLANT.

SO WE'RE GOING TO WAIT SINCE THAT'S GOING TO INVOLVE OVER A FEW DAYS.

IT'S GOING TO INVOLVE NIGHT TIME WORK AND SOME LANE CLOSURES AND DIVERTING TRAFFIC TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROADWAY.

SO WE'VE DECIDED NOT TO LET OUR CONSTRUCTION UNTIL THEY'VE FINISHED, BUT THEY'LL GET THEIR WORK DONE OVER ABOUT A WEEK.

SO ONCE THEY FINISH THEIR WORK, WE'LL GET BACK IN ON CENTERVILLE ROAD.

AVENUE D IS A PROJECT THAT WE HAVE SCHEDULED IN THE FUTURE AS OF THE ONE WAY PAYER AVENUE B IS THE STATE'S RESPONSIBILITY TO MAINTAIN.

AND THEN AVENUE D IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAINTAIN.

AND THIS IS A LIST OF SOME PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE ALSO, NOT ONLY IN ADDITION TO THE PROJECTS WE'VE DONE, BUT WE'VE SHARED FUNDING WITH OTHER DEPARTMENTS, SOME PROJECTS THAT ARE. I'M GOING TO GLENBROOK DRIVE SOUTH OF CARROLL DRIVE.

IT'S BEEN AWARDED BY COUNCIL, IT'S GETTING READY TO START CONSTRUCTION SOON.

[INAUDIBLE] MILLER ROAD AVENUE 8TH, 9TH STREET, WHICH IS RIGHT THERE AT THE PARK ROAD IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION. CARROLL ROAD IS AWARDED BY COUNCIL.

MAYFIELD ROAD, I THINK I BELIEVE IT'S SCHEDULED FOR TOMORROW AT THE COUNCIL MEETING.

SO THESE ARE PROJECTS WHERE WE HAVE SHARED FUNDS WITH THE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT.

THEY'RE GOING TO BE MANAGING THEM AND WE'RE KIND OF WHILE THEY'RE DOING WATER AND SEWER

[00:35:01]

REPLACEMENTS. AND WE'RE WORKING ON THAT.

THE GUILFORD PEMBROKE SYLVAN, THAT IS THAT'S A PROJECT WHERE THE WATER DEPARTMENT IS REPLACING THE ONE IN THAT DRAINAGE CHANNEL BEHIND KINGSBRIDGE.

AND SO WE'RE GETTING FOUR ACTUALLY FIVE ALLEYS RECONSTRUCTED AS PART OF THAT PROJECT.

[INAUDIBLE], WAS ACTUALLY A PROJECT THAT WAS ENGINEER AND WAS WORKING ON WHEN I ACTUALLY HIRED MY NEW SENIOR CIVIL ENGINEER OUT OF THE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT.

HE BROUGHT THAT PROJECT WITH HIM, BUT HE'S WORKING ON IT IN THE BALLINGER BONITA IS A SANITARY SEWER PROJECT THAT WE'RE ALSO GOING TO PARTICIPATE WITH, INCLUDING PAVEMENT.

SO AS YOU CAN SEE, WE'VE GOT BETWEEN THE DESIGN COST OF NEARLY NINE HUNDRED THOUSAND AND THE CONSTRUCTION COST AND ESTIMATES OF NEARLY 10 MILLION.

SO WE'VE GOT ANOTHER 11 MILLION DOLLARS THAT WE HAVE SPENT OUTSIDE OF OUR PROJECTS SHARING FUNDS WITH OTHER DEPARTMENTS THAT ARE WORKING ON BETTER MANAGING PROJECTS.

THIS IS A LIST OF OUR MAJOR PROJECTS GOING ON.

WE'RE WORKING ON ARTERIAL ROADWAY.

WE'VE GOT CONTRACTS FOR THE RESIDENTIAL ROADWAY.

AS I MENTIONED, WE HAD AN ALLEY REPAIR PROJECT THAT WE DID ONE, AND WE DID A RENEWAL WITH IT. BUT THEN WE DECIDED TO SPEND SOME OF THAT MORE MONEY ON ALLEY RECONSTRUCTION.

SO WE DIDN'T RENEW THAT. BUT WE REALIZED THAT WE WILL EVALUATE THE NEED FOR THAT FUTURE, REINSTATING THAT PROGRAM IN THE FUTURE.

SOME MAJOR PROJECTS WE'VE GOT VALLEY MILLS DRIVE, CLUB CREEK BOULEVARD, NORTHGATE SHEARING'S, PROJECT, MARTINDALE, BLUE CREEK.

SO AND THEN WE'VE GOT SEVERAL ALLEY REPLACEMENT PROJECTS THAT WE'VE GOTTEN AND WE'VE JUST FINISHED RECENTLY. WE THIS SHEET IS THE LIST OF 11 STREETS WHERE THE WATER DEPARTMENT WAS GOING TO DO WATER LINES.

AND WE HAVE WE BASICALLY TOOK OVER THE TO GO WITH DESIGN, TO GO WITH THE CONSTRUCTION AND ALL THOSE PROJECTS ARE COMPLETED EXCEPT FOR THAT PHASE TWO.

WE ACTUALLY DID PHASE ONE AND DID PHASE THREE.

AND PHASE TWO IS NEARLY UNDER IS PROBABLY WILL BE FINISHED CONSTRUCTION IN THE NEXT MONTH OR TWO. THEY ARE WELL ON THEIR WAY TO BEING COMPLETED.

JUST ANOTHER LIST OF MORE THE PROJECTS THERE, JUST TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE PROJECTS THAT WE HAVE COMPLETED.

AS MENTIONED, THE LAST MILE PROJECT, THE WAY WE'RE AWARDING ALL OF THESE PROJECTS WITH THE CONSTRUCTION AND RENEWALS WHERE WE'RE GETTING A LOT OF THAT LAST MILE WAS A MILLION AND A HALF DOLLAR PROJECT.

AS WE SAY. WE'VE ALREADY DONE ONE.

WE'VE ALREADY DONE ONE MILLION AND A HALF DOLLAR PROJECT.

AND WE'VE GOT THE FIRST RENEWAL THERE.

SO WE'VE GOT AN ADDITIONAL ONE MILLION.

AS WE SAY, WE SPENT A MILLION AND A LITTLE OVER A MILLION AND A HALF ON THAT PROJECT TO DATE. THE PAYMENT LIFTING SERVICES WE ACTUALLY COMPLETED THAT ONE CONTRACT WAS A MILLION DOLLAR A YEAR CONTRACT.

WE HAD FOUR RENEWALS, SO WE ACTUALLY IMPLEMENTED A SECOND CONTRACT ON THE HEELS OF THAT ONE, THAT WE INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF THAT TO TWO MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR SO THAT WE CAN REALLY FOCUS ON LIFTING THOSE PAYMENTS ON THOSE ARTERIAL STREETS.

AND SO WE ACTUALLY PIGGYBACKED ON DFW AIRPORT ON THAT PROJECT.

SO WE JUST STARTED THAT ONE.

SO THE CONTRACTORS WORK ON THE ORIGINAL ONE, BUT WE WILL HAVE FOUR RENEWALS ON THAT.

SO WE'LL BE ABLE TO DO 10 MILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF WORK ON THAT.

THE ARTERIAL PAVEMENT REQUIREMENTS CONTRACT, THAT'S A CONTRACT THAT'S CURRENTLY THEY WORKED ON YALE, THEY'RE CURRENTLY THIS IS A CONTRACT THAT IS WORKING ON FIRST STREET RIGHT NOW. SO HE'S AND THEN WE ARE GOING TO WHEN HE FINISHES FIRST STREET, WE'RE GOING TO SEND HIM TO NORTH GARLAND.

HE'S GOING TO WORK IN NORTH GARLAND BETWEEN.

I THINK I MAY HAVE ALREADY SENT THAT NOTICE AROUND TO NORTH GARLAND BETWEEN AVENUE B AND BUCKINGHAM. HERE'S A ANOTHER PROJECT I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE LOST INTEREST IN IS OUR IS OUR RAILROAD CROSSING IMPROVEMENT PROJECT.

WE DID SEVEN WE INITIALLY DID SEVEN RAILROAD CROSSINGS THAT WE DID IN DESIGN.

AND WE HAVE SINCE ADDED JUPITER ROAD PROJECT DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND.

THE FIRST STREET SPUR LINE THAT WORK'S UNDER CONSTRUCTION, IT MAY HAVE ALREADY BEEN EITHER. THAT'S WHERE WE WERE MOVING THE ASPHALT PAVEMENT, PUTTING CONCRETE PAVEMENT AND WHERE WE HAD PULLED THAT SPUR LINE.

THE BUCKINGHAM ROAD AT 78, THAT'S THE KCS LINE.

THE AGREEMENT IS IN PLACE.

THEY ARE ORDERING THE MATERIALS BECAUSE THAT ONE IS HAS THE PROXIMITY TO THE BUS BARN THERE FOR GISD.

AND IT A LOT OF THEIR BUSSES FOLLOW THAT ROUTE.

AND I KNOW THERE WE'RE GOING TO WAIT UNTIL AFTER SCHOOL LETS OUT FOR THE SUMMER BEFORE WE START THAT PROJECT. SO I'D SAY THAT PROJECT SHOULD START IN JUNE.

AND THEN THE OTHER ONES, THE ONES THAT ARE UNDER DESIGN REVIEW BY DGNO AND KCS.

THE MILLER ROAD PROJECT IS UNDER DESIGN AND THEN THE JUPITER ROAD IS UNDER DESIGN.

THAT ONE WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO FAST TRACK AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THAT ONE, I JUST SAW SOME EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE ON THAT ONE.

I'M TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CAN THE PROJECT CAN GET THE DESIGN, KEEP THE DESIGN SPEED

[00:40:01]

UP ON THAT ROADWAY. BUT I WILL SAY THIS IN OUR INITIAL CORRESPONDENCE WITH DGNO, THEY ARE ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT REPAIRING A LOT OF THESE LOCATIONS.

BUT MY ENGINEER WAS SAID HE WAS JUST HE COULD JUST TELL THE EXCITEMENT, THEIR VOICES, THAT THEY'RE NOT USED TO HAVING CITIES THEY DON'T WANT TO SHARE WITH THEM AND AND START WORKING ON REPLACING A LOT OF THESE DAMAGED CROSSINGS IN AND LET THEM PARTICIPATE WITH THEM IN THE IN THE REPAIR PROJECTS.

NOW, THIS IS KIND OF A LIST OF WHAT WE'RE SEEING BASED ON OUR FUNDING TO TO GET TO THOSE NUMBERS THAT WE PROJECTED OUT THERE, THE KIND OF NUMBER OF PROJECTS THAT WE WILL DO IN EACH OF THE SUCCEEDING YEARS TO BE ABLE TO GET THOSE NUMBERS TO THE POINT THOSE THE OCI NUMBERS TO WHERE WE WANT TO GET THEM.

WELL, THAT THAT'S MY PRESENTATION, I WILL ENTERTAIN QUESTIONS, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WANT ME TO LEAVE IT UP TO YOU, ONLY STOP SHARING THE SCREEN.

LET'S GO AND STOP SHARING, BUT BE PREPARED TO GO BACK TO IT.

OK, I FIGURED THERE MIGHT BE SOME QUESTIONS.

OTHERS SAY YOUR DEPUTY MAYOR, TIM MORRIS.

THANK YOU. AND STEVE, I DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE A QUESTION, I JUST WANTED TO COMPLIMENT YOU ON SEVERAL THINGS.

I WAS VERY EXCITED TO HEAR THAT THE DEMAND FOR POTHOLE REPAIRS HAS GREATLY DECLINED.

I MEAN, THAT'S ONE OF THOSE MARKERS OF SUCCESS.

HOW EXCITING. WELL, A YEAR AND A HALF AGO, ONE OF MY TOWN HALLS, I ACTUALLY HAD CUPCAKES MADE THAT HAD LITTLE ORANGE CONES AND AND DIPS.

THEY WERE POTHOLE THINGS BECAUSE I WAS GETTING SO MANY COMPLAINTS THAT YOU WERE FILLING AS FAST AS YOU COULD, BUT WELL DONE ON THAT.

AND THE MEDIA, THE VIDEOS AND EVERYTHING THAT YOU'RE PUTTING OUT, THOSE ARE SO HELPFUL.

SO BEING ABLE TO LET PEOPLE KNOW WHEN THEY'VE GOT OVERLAYS OR ANY KIND OF ROADS WORK HEADING THEIR WAY FOR THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD, BEING ABLE TO SHARE THOSE VIDEOS WITH THEM, IT HAS GREATLY REDUCED THE NUMBER OF QUESTIONS AND EVEN COMPLAINTS THAT I'VE GOTTEN.

SO, WOW, YOU'RE DOING GREAT.

REALLY APPRECIATE IT.

KEEP IT UP. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

ANY ADDITIONAL COMPLIMENTS FOR MR. OLIVER? WE'LL TAKE ALL WE CAN GET, COUNCIL MEMBER MCNEAL.

THANK YOU, SIR. THANK YOU, MR. OLIVER. JUST A QUICK QUESTION AND KIND OF PIGGYBACKING ON COUNCIL LADY MORRIS' OUR POINT REGARDING THE VIDEOS IN REGARDS TO BULK PICK UP WHEN YOU'RE DOING WHEN YOU DO SOME OF THE RESIDENTIAL AREA. CAN YOU JUST BRIEFLY DESCRIBE THAT FOR SOMEONE THAT MAY BE LISTENING TODAY? BECAUSE, AGAIN, YOU GUYS ARE DOING AN AWESOME JOB, BUT JUST HAD A COUPLE OF QUESTIONS FOR A COUPLE OF RESIDENTS REGARDING BULK PICK UP WHEN YOU'RE DOING CONSTRUCTION. WELL, WE TRY TO WORK WITH WE WORK WITH URIEL AND EWS ON, OBVIOUSLY, WHEN STREETS ARE COMPLETELY UNDER CONSTRUCTION, WE WORK WITH THEM TO WHEEL CARTS AND STUFF BACK, I GUESS, AND WE TRY TO AS BEST WE CAN.

A LOT OF TIMES IT'S DIFFICULT TO DO BUT PICK UP IF THE STREETS COMPLETELY UNDER CONSTRUCTION, IF WE'RE DOING REPAIRS, USUALLY THE TRASH TRUCKS WILL STILL BE ABLE TO, THE BULK PICK UP TRUCKS, WILL STILL BE ABLE TO COME DOWN THOSE STREETS WHEN IT'S JUST REPAIRS. BUT DURING CONSTRUCTION, THERE'S AT POINTS IN TIME WHEN WE GET WHERE WE GET THE, YOU KNOW, THE BASE DOWN AND THEY CAN GET BACK IN THERE.

BUT FOR THE MOST PART, WE'RE TRYING TO WE'RE REALLY JUST TRYING TO FOCUS MORE ON THE INDIVIDUAL PICK UP AND OFTENTIMES ON THOSE DAYS THAT WILL END UP WHEELING THE CART AND THEY'LL STILL PUT THEM OUT FRONT AND WILL END UP WHEELING THE CARTS TO THE END OF THE BLOCKS OR THE TRASH TRUCKS CAN EMPTY THEIR CARTS.

AND THEN WE'LL WHEEL THEM BACK, THE BULK PICKUP IS TRICKY AT TIMES.

BUT I KNOW WE TRY TO WORK WITH EWS AS MUCH AS WE CAN, BUT I DON'T I'M TRYING TO THINK IN OUR LATER, IF WE SPECIFICALLY TALKED ABOUT TRASH PICK UP AND, YOU KNOW, IF YOU'RE OUT FRONT TO STILL KEEP IT OUT FRONT.

BUT THEN WHEN WE WORK IN THE RECONSTRUCTED ALLEYS, THEN WE'LL OFTEN HAVE TO DIRECT THEM TO LEAVE IT OUT FRONT RATHER THAN IN THE BACK.

BUT THAT'S SOMETHING I'LL LOOK WITH, I'LL CHECK WITH OUR GUYS ON WHAT EFFORT WE'RE MAKING ON THE BULK TRASH, BECAUSE I'M NOT SURE THAT WE WE HAVE A SPECIFIC I KNOW WE HAVE SPECIFIC INFORMATION REGARDING TRASH PICKUP, BUT I'M NOT SURE IF WE HAVE SPECIFIC INFORMATION REGARDING THE BULK TRASH PICKUP IN THE LETTERS THAT WE SEND OUT TO THE RESIDENTS. GREAT, GREAT.

AND JUST ONE THAT [INAUDIBLE] DOES OCCUR.

[00:45:01]

AND OBVIOUSLY, THERE'S ALWAYS OPPORTUNITY FOR US JUST TO IMPROVE THAT.

BUT THANK YOU FOR SHARING THE FACT THAT THAT COORDINATION DOES OCCUR.

THANK YOU, SIR. THANK YOU.

MAYOR PRO TEM NICKERSON? THANK YOU, SIR. STEVE, I JUST WANTED TO CHIME IN OVER THE LAST FOUR YEARS, WE'VE DONE A LOT OF IMPROVEMENT HERE IN THE SOUTH GARLAND AREA AND I'LL LET GO THE THING ON THE POTHOLES, TOO.

I SURPRISINGLY, I CAN'T REMEMBER HERE HOW I HAVE I JUST HAVE NOT HAD A POTHOLE CALL THEM IN SO LONG. I THOUGHT WE HAD THEM ALL FIXED.

SO THAT'S GREAT.

BUT MORE THAN THAT, JUST THE GENERAL WAY YOU PRESENT YOUR DATA AND KEEP US INFORMED ALONG WITH THE CITIZENRY HAS BEEN EXEMPLARY.

AND YOU DO GOOD WORK.

AND YOUR FOLLOW UP IS GOOD.

AND THE ONLY OTHER ITEM WOULD BE THAT YOU ALSO GOT THAT YOU'RE GETTING AROUND TO FIXING MY LAST LITTLE PROBLEM DOWN THERE ON LYONS ROAD WITH THAT GUARDRAIL AND WHICH HAS BEEN A BAD TURN THERE ANYWAY FOR FOLKS.

AND I KNOW SOME OF THE SYSTEMS DOWN THERE WILL REALLY APPRECIATE THAT AS WELL.

SO THANK YOU FOR BEGINNING TO GET ON THAT, TOO.

AND ANYWAY I JUST WANT TO SAY THANKS A LOT FOR ALL THE WORK YOU'VE DONE, STEVE.

AND WE HAD HOPED TO START THAT GUARDRAIL.

EXPLAIN THAT LATER, HOW WE WENT ROUND AND ROUND TRYING TO GET THE APPROPRIATE GUARDRAIL.

BUT I DO APPRECIATE THE COMPLIMENT.

I THINK MOST OF THE SAFETY COMPLIMENTS ARE DUE TO THE FACT THAT I'M BLESSED WITH AN EXTREMELY GOOD STAFF AND IT'S EASY TO REPORT THE GOOD THINGS THAT THEY DO.

YOU BET. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. THANK YOU, SIR.

ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS FOR MR. OLIVER? I DON'T SEE ANY.

AND JUST TO PUT THE FOLKS ON THE LINES ROAD, WE HAD SOME DELAYS.

WE ORDERED CURVED PIECES, BUT THEY SENT US STRAIGHT PIECES.

SO WE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF AN ISSUE THERE THAT WE WERE ALL FOLLOWING UP ON.

AND THEN THEY SAID IT'S CURVED IN THE WRONG DIRECTION.

WELL, YOU KNOW, PROCESS OF ELIMINATION.

I GUESS WE'LL FINALLY GET THE RIGHT PIECES.

BUT AS I NOTED IN THERE, THAT THAT REPRESENTATIVE NO LONGER WORKS FOR THE GUARDRAIL COMPANY. THAT'S PROBABLY A GOOD MOVE.

PROBABLY A GOOD MOVE.

ALL RIGHT. WELL, THANK YOU, SIR.

AND ACTUALLY, I APPRECIATE THE GRAPH WITH THE PAVEMENT AGE.

I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY, WHEN YOU SEE THE WHEN YOU SEE THE PAVEMENT AGE ACROSS CITY, IT MAKES SENSE AS YOU EXPLAIN.

I MEAN, AND SO BUT I DON'T KNOW THAT I'VE EVER THOUGHT OF IT IN THAT , YOU KNOW, IN THOSE AGE CATEGORIES. SO ANYWAY, THANK YOU, MR. OLIVER. GOOD WORK.

THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.

WE WILL MOVE ON TO ITEM 4C WINDSURF BAY PARK.

[4C. Windsurf Bay Park]

MR. HESSER? YES, SIR. GOOD EVENING, MAYOR AND COUNCIL.

I'LL SHARE MY SCREEN AS WELL.

EVERYBODY ABLE TO SEE THAT, OK? YES, SIR. FOR STARTERS, COUNCILMAN AUBIN, I APPRECIATE YOUR BACKGROUND.

VERY TIMELY. FOR MORE INFORMATION, GO TO VISIT VISITGARLANDTX.COM ALL RIGHT.

SO LET'S TALK ABOUT WINDSURF BAY.

AT COUNCIL'S DIRECTION, WE CAME BACK WITH A QUICK GAME PLAN CENTERED AROUND CONTROLLING ACCESS TO THE PARK IN LIEU OF THE LAST DISCUSSION REGARDING FENCING THE SHORELINE.

SO I'LL START OUT WITH JUST A LITTLE BRIEF STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE SO WE CAN ALL GET ON THE SAME PAGE FOR THE PAST AND HOW WE KIND OF GOT HERE.

THIS PARCEL'S ABOUT FORTY TWO ACRES, IT WAS ACQUIRED AROUND 1989 .

AND AS YOU CAN SEE, THERE'S KIND OF THESE LITTLE BUMP OUT SPACES ALONG HERE.

WE HAVE ABOUT ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY ALL WEATHER PARKING SPOTS, WE PARTNER WITH STREET DEPARTMENT IN PROVIDING GRAVEL IN HERE TO KIND OF REDUCE THE POTENTIAL FOR IT TURNING INTO A MUDHOLE AFTER WEATHER EVENTS.

QUICK VIDEO, I WON'T SHOW THE WHOLE THING, BUT THIS WAS DONE SOME TIME AGO TO JULY FOURTH IN 2016.

SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE ALREADY SEEN THIS.

AND REMEMBER, THIS WAS A SIMILAR VIDEO FROM THE MEMORIAL DAY EVENT THE FOLLOWING YEAR, I BELIEVE.

JUST KIND OF GIVES YOU A BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE.

ON ONE OF THESE MAJOR HOLIDAYS THAT KIND OF PRECIPITATED THE NEED FOR CAPPING THE PARTICIPATION AT 2500 PEOPLE, AS WELL AS CONTROLLING THE ACCESS TO PARKS AND POLICE STAFF. HERE'S A SHOT OF THE TYPICAL ACTIVITY ON THE SHORELINE, ON THE HEAVY USE.

SCROLL DOWN AND SEE THE CROWDS GATHERED UP RIGHT UP AGAINST THE SHORELINE AND I BELIEVE RIGHT ABOUT HERE, YOU'LL SEE A POPULAR ACCESS MEANS OF A LADDER BROUGHT TO THE PARTY.

[00:50:08]

SO THAT'S QUITE A LOT OF ACTIVITY, SO HERE'S A BRIEF HISTORY, AND YOU CAN SEE OVER TIME THE PARTICIPATION HAS REALLY RATCHETED UP AT THESE MAJOR HOLIDAYS, MEMORIAL DAY, JULY 4TH, LABOR DAY REALLY PEAKING AROUND 2018, SEEING EIGHT THOUSAND PEOPLE, WHICH REALLY PRECIPITATED IN 2019, PUT TOGETHER POLICE AND PARKS A PLAN TO CAP IT AT 2500 PEOPLE.

THEN SHORTLY AFTER THAT, PRIOR TO THE CLOSING OF IT, DUE TO COVID CHALLENGES WE REALLY STARTED SEEING IS EVERYBODY MAY RECALL, NON MAJOR HOLIDAY WEEKENDS.

QUICKLY WE'RE BECOMING IN THAT 2500 PEOPLE CATEGORY AND REALLY OVERWHELMING THE WEEKEND STAFF BOTH FOR PARKS AND POLICE CALLS.

AND THEN ONCE THAT PLAN WAS IMPLEMENTED, THIS IS KIND OF HOW QUICKLY THINGS WOULD FILL UP. SO ON THAT SUNDAY, MAY 26TH, BY THE TIME 2:00 P.M.

ROLLED AROUND, WE WERE TAPPED ON MONDAY.

WE WERE CAPTURED AT ONE PM AT TWENTY FIVE HUNDRED AND AGAIN, TURNING NEARLY THREE THOUSAND PEOPLE AWAY AFTER THAT POINT.

AND YOU CAN KIND OF SEE THE QUEUE HERE IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

BUT THAT PLAN WAS A REDIRECTION OF QUITE A BIT OF RESOURCES WITH THE MPOS WORKING THROUGHOUT THOSE WEEKENDS EACH DAY AND PULLING SOME FROM THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD PROGRAM, ADDING SIGNAGE INDICATING THE PARK CLOSURE WAS AT CAPACITY.

SO FOLKS KNEW TO TURN AROUND IN ADVANCE.

AND THEN OBVIOUSLY TRASH AND BATHROOM DUTY OBVIOUSLY WENT UP.

ORDINANCE WAS ALSO PUT IN PLACE THAT ALLOWED DIRECTOR OF PARKS AND THE POLICE CHIEF TO CONFER AND UPON REACHING THAT NUMBER, BE ABLE TO CLOSE THE PARK FOR FURTHER VISITS.

JUST A QUICK SNAPSHOT OF KIND OF WHERE WE ARE NOW, THIS IS CURRENT CONDITIONS, SO THIS IS KIND OF THE GRAVEL PARKING AREA THAT IS IN PLACE NOW TO KIND OF CONTAIN THE DAMAGE DUE TO WEATHER EVENTS. A LOT OF THIS IS [INAUDIBLE] IT'S KIND OF AN ATTEMPT TO CONTAIN FOLKS WITH WHERE WE WOULD LIKE THEM TO STAY ON THE PAVING.

BUT YOU CAN SEE IN THIS PICTURE ON THE RIGHT, THEY DON'T ALWAYS STAY WHERE WE ASK THEM TO. AND WE FIND FREQUENTLY THAT THEY PULL THE BOLLARDS OUT WHEN THEY'RE FULL, THEY PULL THEM OUT AND THEN JUST DRIVE OUT INTO THE OPEN FIELD WHENEVER THEY FEEL LIKE IT.

AGAIN, THIS IS KIND OF THE QUOTE UNQUOTE, BEACH AREA, YOU CAN SEE QUITE A BIT OF EROSION, SOME OF IT STEEPER THAN OTHERS.

AS YOU KIND OF GO DOWN BACK TO THE SOUTH, IT GETS A LITTLE STEEPER.

SO WE DID SOME RESEARCH, LOOKED AT OTHER CITIES AND I KNOW SOME NAMES OF THESE, YOU'LL BE FAMILIAR WITH MANY YOU HAVE PROBABLY BEEN TO SOME OF THESE.

AND SO JUST AS BY COMPARISON, WHEN WE'RE TALKING ABOUT CONTROLLING ACCESS TO A PARK LIKE THIS, THIS IS A COUPLE OF EASY EXAMPLES TO REFER TO BOTH AT MEADOWMERE IN GRAPEVINE AND LYNN CREEK IN GRAND PRAIRIE.

CONTINUED TO PULL SOME OF THESE OTHER FACILITIES AND I'LL GO BRIEFLY THROUGH THEM, YOU'LL SEE ON THE FAR RIGHT HAND SIDE, IT'S WORTH NOTING THE LAKE AUTHORITY, THE COMMONALITY FOR THESE OTHER LAKESIDE PARKS IS THAT THEY ARE ON CORPS OF ENGINEER WATER.

WE ARE ON THE CITY OF DALLAS WATER.

THE PRIMARY DIFFERENCE BEING THAT BEING FEDERALLY MANDATED TO PROVIDE RECREATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES. THEY PARTNER BY AGREEMENT WITH THESE ADJACENT CITIES TO PROVIDE RECREATION ON THE WATER.

CITY OF DALLAS, THEIR PRIMARY CONCERN IS MAINTAINING WATER QUALITY AND WATER SUPPLY.

SO JUST KIND OF A SNAPSHOT OF THE SURVEY OF THESE OF THESE OTHER CITIES, YOU'LL SEE THEY CHARGE A FEE PER CAR, SOME FIVE DOLLARS A CAR, SOME AT 10, SOME AT 15.

SOME WILL HAVE AN ADDITIONAL HOLIDAY RATE, MEANING MAJOR HOLIDAYS, LABOR DAY, MEMORIAL, JULY 4TH. THEIR FEE GOES UP TO 20, IN SOME CASES, 25.

MOST OF THEM DO NOT OFFER A RESIDENT RATE.

IT'S A FLAT FEE FOR ALL CARS.

MOST OF THEM HAVE A BOAT RAMP, AS YOU CAN SEE.

AND THEN YOU CAN ALSO NOTICE THAT SINCE THEY ARE KIND OF GEARED FOR RECREATIONAL USE, THEY HAVE A THEY ARE DESIGNED FOR A MUCH LARGER CAPACITY OF CARS.

AND THESE ARE THE NUMBERS THEY TELL US THAT THEY WILL SEE KIND OF ON A PEAK HOLIDAY TIME.

JUST VERY BRIEFLY AGAIN, FOR DISCUSSION, JUST STARTING THE DISCUSSION, WE FELT LIKE MAYBE THE FEE PER NONRESIDENT CAR WOULD BE TEN DOLLARS ON A STANDARD WEEKEND HOLIDAY RATE, MAYBE OF 20 AND PER COUNCIL'S RECOMMENDATION.

LOOKING AT THE GARLAND RESIDENTS ARE FREE.

THIS IS KIND OF A SNAPSHOT OF WHAT MAY BE A LITTLE TRICKY TO SEE, BUT I'VE GOT SOME ZOOMED IN.

WE'RE PROPOSING IF WE WERE TO ADD AN ENTRY GATED CONTROL FEATURE, THIS RED AREA HERE, WE

[00:55:04]

NEED TO CONTROL ACCESS AND KEEP THEM ON THE ROAD.

SO WHAT THAT WOULD LOOK LIKE IS, I MIGHT BE ABLE TO ZOOM IN.

WE WOULD PROPOSE THAT SOMEWHERE IN THIS AREA THERE WOULD BE A CLIMATE CONTROLLED TICKET BOOTH AND RESTROOM FOR THE STAFF ONLY STAFF PARKING.

THIS WOULD BE LIKELY MAYBE A THREE FOOT TALL STEEL PIPE FENCE TYPE THING THAT CONTAINS TRAFFIC. THAT WAY, WHEN YOU REACH CAPACITY, YOU'RE FULL, THEY HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO TURN AROUND AND GO BACK OUT. THAT TAKES THE KIOSK FARTHER DOWN INTO THE PARK AND HOPEFULLY CAN REDUCE A LITTLE BIT OF THE IMPACT COMING INTO THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

THIS IS THE EXISTING AREA, THERE'S LESS THAN TWO HUNDRED WEATHERPROOF PARKING SPACES IN THE PARK RIGHT NOW IN ORDER TO MAINTAIN THE GOAL OF MAYBE CAPPING IT AT APPROXIMATELY TWENTY FIVE HUNDRED PEOPLE, THAT EQUATES TO AROUND FIVE HUNDRED CARS.

SO WHAT YOU SEE HERE IS, IS A SCHEMATIC OF HOW WE WOULD SQUEEZE IN TO SCALE.

ADDITIONAL PARKING TO GET US TO FIVE HUNDRED FIRM PARKING SPACES.

SO THAT'S WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE, KIND OF ZOOMED IN.

SO, AGAIN, WE WOULD HAVE AND THIS IS NOT EXACT, BUT WE WOULD HAVE SOME TYPE OF TICKET BOOTH, A VERY SMALL FOOTPRINT AND A STAFF ONLY RESTROOM, A COUPLE OF GATES THAT WE COULD CONTROL IN THIS BLUE AREA.

WE'RE PROPOSING BOTH FROM AN AESTHETIC STANDPOINT AND A DURABILITY, IT WOULD BE VERY DIFFICULT TO PULL LARGE BOULDERS OUT WITH A TRUCK OR A CAR, AS THEY DO WITH THE BALL.

SO IF WE FELT THAT WE NEEDED TO CONTAIN TRAFFIC FURTHER INTO THIS GRAVEL AREA, THE BOULDERS ARE A LITTLE MORE PERMANENT AND A LITTLE MORE ATTRACTIVE THAN THE DILAPIDATED WOOD [INAUDIBLE]. SO, AGAIN, KIND OF PROPOSING FOR DISCUSSION AND COUNCIL'S CONSIDERATION THAT WE WOULD BE OPEN DURING THE MONTHS OF MARCH 1ST THROUGH OCTOBER 1ST, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY, AND THEN HOLIDAY MONDAYS ON THE MAJOR HOLIDAYS.

THAT MARCH 1ST THROUGH OCTOBER 1ST, IS A RULE OF THUMB, THAT THINGS TEND TO KIND OF GET WARM ABOUT THAT TIME.

SO WE NEED TO BE PREPARED TO BE STAFFED UP FOR THAT.

IF THE WEATHER IS NOT GREAT IN MARCH, WE DON'T OPEN UP, SAVE THE MONEY.

SAME THING. ON THE OTHER END IN OCTOBER.

PROPOSED HOURS, 8:00 A.M.

TO 8:00 P.M. I THINK IF WE LEFT IT OPEN THOSE HOURS WOULD BE USED AROUND THE CLOCK, BUT WE FEEL LIKE THE IMPACT OF THE NEIGHBORS IS A LITTLE MORE APPROPRIATE IF IT'S AN EIGHT A.M. TO EIGHT P.M., KIND OF SIMILAR TO WHEN WE RESTRICT CONSTRUCTION AND LANDSCAPE.

THE OTHER THING THAT WE NEED TO CONSIDER IS THE PAYMENT METHOD, SOME OF THE PEOPLE WE'VE TALKED TO HAVE GONE TO CREDIT CARD.

ONLY IF YOU GO WITH CREDIT CARD IN CASH, YOU'RE KIND OF IN A PINCH WHERE YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A DROP SAFE AND THEN YOU WOULD THEN HAVE TO HAVE AN ESCORTED DEPOSIT DELIVERY AT THE END OF EACH BUSINESS DAY.

AGAIN, WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HAVING A CLIMATE CONTROLLED TICKET KIOSK.

IT WOULD BE A LOT LIKE WE'VE USED IN OUR PREFAB RESTROOMS AND CONCESSION STANDS THAT ARE PROPOSED IN THE BOND PROGRAM.

SAME TYPE OF COMPANY COULD DO A REAL BASIC TICKET KIOSK.

I THINK THAT IS A NECESSITY.

SO WE'RE NOT HAVING STAFF IN A MARSHAL STANDING UNDERNEATH TENT, TRYING TO TAKE MONEY IN AN UNSAFE AND A VERY, VERY HOT AND HUMID ENVIRONMENT FOR 12 HOURS A DAY.

I THINK IT'S ALSO IMPORTANT THAT WE FIND A WAY TO CREATE A FIVE HUNDRED PARKING SPACE AREA THAT'S SUITABLE FOR WET WEATHER.

WE'RE BASING THIS KIND OF ON AN AVERAGE OF FOUR TO FIVE PEOPLE PER CAR, SO TWENTY THOUSAND TWENTY FIVE HUNDRED TOTAL VISITORS IS PROVEN TO BE MANAGEABLE IN THE PAST.

WALK INS WOULD BE ALLOWED ONLY BY NEIGHBORHOOD OR NEARBY NEIGHBORS AND THOSE AND WE'LL HAVE TO KIND OF WORK OUT THE LOGISTICS BASICALLY JUST KEEP A LIST OF ADDRESSES FOR THOSE FOLKS THAT MIGHT BE WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE SO THAT THOSE FOLKS CAN COME IN AND WALK THEIR DOGS WITH THEIR FAMILY.

HOWEVER THEY WANT TO ENJOY THE PARK.

SO THE NEXT ONE IS KIND OF A CURVE BALL THAT WE LEARNED ABOUT TODAY.

I KNOW COUNCIL FELT THAT IT WAS APPROPRIATE FOR GARLAND RESIDENTS TO LOOK AT THIS, THAT BEING FREE WITH OUR INTER LOCAL AGREEMENT WITH THE CITY OF DALLAS RELATED TO THE TAKE LINE, WHATEVER FEES WE WOULD CHARGE FOR GARLAND RESIDENTS MUST BE RECIPROCATED WITH DALLAS RESIDENTS. SO THAT MAY CAUSE US TO MAYBE REEVALUATE THE IMPACT, I'LL SHOW KIND OF SOME REVENUE SCENARIOS HERE IN A MINUTE.

THAT COULD HAVE AN IMPACT ON REVENUE AND POSSIBLE COST RECOVERY.

SO BEAR THAT IN MIND.

SO, AGAIN, KIND OF PROPOSING TEN DOLLARS PER CAR, NONRESIDENT, 20 DOLLARS PER NONRESIDENT CAR ON A MAJOR HOLIDAY WEEKENDS.

THIS WOULD BE THE ESTIMATED ONE TIME INFRASTRUCTURE COST ON THE FRONT END AND THE INSTALL

[01:00:04]

PRICE JUST AGAIN, QUICK ESTIMATES FOR TICKET BOOTH AND STAFF RESTROOM KIND OF ALL CONTAINED IN THE ONE UNIT WITH FOUNDATION WOULD BE TWO HUNDRED AND FIVE THOUSAND APPROXIMATELY.

FOR WATER, SEWER AND GRAVEL AND POSSIBLY LIGHTING.

I DID NOT PLUG SOME NUMBERS IN THERE TRYING TO KEEP THE COST DOWN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

SO I'M KIND OF THINKING THOSE ARE CONTINGENT UPON INTER-DEPARTMENTAL ASSISTANCE TO GET US WATER AND SEWER AND POSSIBLE SECURITY LIGHTING.

IF NEEDED, WE WOULD NEED GATES TO CONTROL ACCESS AFTER HOURS.

THERE'S OTHER EQUIPMENT WE WOULD NEED FOR, PARTICULARLY RELATED TO MARSHALLS MEETING RADIOS AN AED MACHINE CREDIT CARD MACHINES AND A WI-FI HOT SPOT IN ORDER TO OPERATE THE CREDIT CARD MACHINES.

WE REALLY NEED CONCRETE PADS FOR THE DUMPSTERS, THE TRASH GETS QUITE OVERWHELMING IN A VERY SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME, CUTS DOWN ON RUNS TO THE DUMP AND ALSO DUMPSTER PADS FOR THE PORTA POTTIES. SO THERE'S A COST WITH THAT.

THE TWO THAT ARE IN RED ARE A POSSIBLE ITEM THAT WE COULD MAYBE PHASE IN, I THINK WE WOULD DEFINITELY NEED TO CONTROL THE ENTRANCE TO THE GATE, WHICH WOULD BE THAT PROPOSED PIPE RAIL TYPE FENCE RATHER THAN A CHAIN LINK.

SO THERE'S THAT COST OF SIXTY ONE THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED FOR THAT FOURTEEN HUNDRED LINEAR FEET. BOULDERS FOR TRAFFIC CONTROL, ALSO A COST THAT POSSIBLY COULD BE PHASED IN, UPDATED SIGNAGE AND LIGHTING.

SO INITIAL ESTIMATES FOR UP FRONT INFRASTRUCTURE'S ABOUT THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY EIGHT THOUSAND. THEN WE LOOK AT THE REOCCURRING ESTIMATED OPERATIONAL SUPPLIES AND OTHER EXPENSES, THERE'LL BE SOME PAYMENT PROCESSING FEES, SOME VERY BASIC JANITORIAL AND OFFICE SUPPLIES, FIRST AID, MISCELLANEOUS EQUIPMENT, UNIFORMS FOR MARSHALS' EMPLOYEES.

INTERNET FEES FOR THE WI-FI.

THE INCREASED USE AND I FEEL THAT IT MIGHT BE NECESSARY TO RAMP UP OUR CONTRACT MOWING FOR THIS AREA IF WE START CHARGING FOR FOLKS, I FEEL LIKE WE REALLY NEED TO IMPROVE THE MAINTENANCE THAT'S AVAILABLE FOR THOSE PARTICIPANTS.

TRASH PICK UP THE SAME WAY.

IT GETS QUITE OVERWHELMING VERY QUICKLY FOR OUR STAFF.

AND AGAIN, IT'S IMPORTANT TO POINT OUT THAT GOING INTO THE ADDITIONAL STAFF NEEDED, WE DO NOT HAVE AND NOR DO THE MARSHALS HAVE THE STAFF AVAILABLE TO ALLOCATE TO THIS AT THIS TIME. SO IT SEEMS THAT THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE WAY TO ATTEMPT TO TACKLE THIS WOULD BE BUDGET FOR TWO ADDITIONAL PART TIME STAFF IN AN HOURLY RATE THAT YOU SEE THERE AROUND FIFTEEN DOLLARS AN HOUR.

THAT'S TWO THOUSAND TOTAL HOURS.

PART TIMERS ARE LIMITED TO A THOUSAND HOURS EACH, WE PROPOSED TO STAFF, TO PERSONNEL A DAY PLUS ONE MARSHAL, AND YOU'LL SEE THE PART OF APPROXIMATELY FIFTY THOUSAND FOR PART TIME MARSHAL. THE ONE THING I DID NOT GET INFORMATION ON, AND I DON'T KNOW IF I HAVE IT ON A SLIDE, IS I DO NOT KNOW IF THERE IS ENOUGH VEHICLES TO GO AROUND FOR THE MARSHAL.

SO THAT'S AN UNKNOWN COST AT THIS TIME IF AN ADDITIONAL VEHICLE IS NEEDED.

BUT RIGHT NOW THE PROPOSED PLAN IS TO HIRE ENOUGH STAFF TO SCHEDULE.

SO WE MAY HAVE TO HIRE FOUR TO SIX PART TIMERS TO SCHEDULE THROUGHOUT ALL OF THESE EIGHTY FOUR DAYS OVER THE WEEKENDS DURING THAT TIME FRAME.

SAME THING FOR THE MARSHALS.

THEY MAY HAVE TO HIRE TWO OR THREE JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY CAN SCHEDULE THOSE FOLKS.

SO YOU HAD THE STAFFING COSTS AND THE OPERATING COSTS, OUR ONGOING ANNUAL COST IS ESTIMATED AROUND ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY THOUSAND.

KIND OF VERY QUICKLY, SO THESE ARE SOME REAL SHOTS IN THE DARK ABOUT REVENUE AND COST RECOVERY. IT IS.

VERY DIFFICULT TO GUARANTEE ANY COST RECOVERY, BUT JUST A COUPLE OF SNAPSHOTS FOR WHAT THAT MIGHT LOOK LIKE. SO ON ONE LINE, YOU'LL KIND OF SEE.

WHAT THAT CUMULATIVE COST OPERATING FROM MARCH TO SEPTEMBER MIGHT LOOK LIKE, SO AGAIN, CUMULATIVE, ABOUT ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY THOUSAND.

REVENUE SCENARIO, THAT IF WE HAD ONLY 50 NONRESIDENT CARS AVERAGING ON NORMAL DAYS AND ONE HUNDRED NONRESIDENT CARS ON HOLIDAYS, THAT'S A THAT'S A PRETTY LOW NUMBER, BUT THAT'S ABOUT A 60 PERCENT COST RECOVERY, AROUND SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND.

BREAK EVEN ANALYSIS WOULD LOOK MORE LIKE THIS, WHERE WE'VE GOT WE'RE GOING TO NEED TO AVERAGE EITHER ONE HUNDRED NONRESIDENT CARS ON NORMAL DAYS AND TWO HUNDRED ON HOLIDAYS, ANOTHER WAY TO THINK ABOUT IT.

REAL SIMPLE IS ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY EVERY DAY DURING MARCH AND SEPTEMBER.

THEN HERE'S A SCENARIO THAT IF WE START KIND OF CREEPING UP INTO THESE NUMBERS, YOU'RE LOOKING AT ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN PERCENT COST RECOVERY.

ROUGHLY ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY VERSUS ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY AN ANNUAL COST.

SO TO SUMMARIZE, HERE'S WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT YOU GET THE ONE TIME INFRASTRUCTURE COST

[01:05:01]

APPROXIMATELY THREE HUNDRED FIFTY EIGHT THOUSAND ONGOING STAFF AND OPERATING COSTS, ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY NEED TO DETERMINE IF AN ADDITIONAL MARSHALL VEHICLE IS NEEDED OR NOT.

REVENUE NEEDED TO RECOVER OPERATING COSTS WOULD OBVIOUSLY BE ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY.

THAT'S AN AVERAGE ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY TWO HUNDRED SEVENTY CARS OVER THOSE EIGHTY FOUR OPERATING DAYS. AND THEN SOME OTHER TIMING CONSIDERATIONS THAT WE'LL NEED SOME DIRECTION ON.

THE PURCHASE PROCESS FOR MOST OF THESE LARGE ITEMS, PARTICULARLY THE KIOSK FOR TICKETING BOOTH WOULD BE ABOUT TWO MONTH PROCUREMENT AND THEN DELIVERY AND CONSTRUCTION, PROBABLY SIX TO EIGHT MONTHS. AND AGAIN, I WANTED TO EMPHASIZE WHAT WE LEARNED TODAY WAS THE INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT WITH DALLAS REQUIRES THAT ANY FEE STRUCTURE WITHIN THE TAKE LINE APPLY TO GARLAND RESIDENTS MUST ALSO APPLY TO DALLAS RESIDENTS.

THIS COULD BE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON REVENUE BECAUSE WE HAVE NO DATA THAT KNOWS WHERE FOLKS COME FROM WHEN THEY VISIT THE PARK.

WE JUST IT'S KIND OF BEEN A SINK OR SWIM SITUATION.

WE HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO COLLECT A LOT OF DATA ON THOSE VISITORS.

SO, AGAIN, TO SUMMARIZE THE OPTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN DISCUSSED IN THE LAST COUPLE OF COUNCIL MEETINGS, OBVIOUSLY THE FENCE LINE ALONG THE FENCE ALONG THE SHORELINE TICKETED ENTRANCE THAT WE JUST TALKED ABOUT, ANOTHER OPERATING POSSIBILITY WOULD BE ONLY BEING OPEN TO THE PUBLIC MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY AND CLOSED ON WEEKENDS FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY. AND THEN OBVIOUSLY THE FINAL ONE WOULD BE NO CHANGE FROM THE 2019 OPERATIONS, OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK AND THEN RAMP UP BIG TIME FOR THE MAJOR HOLIDAYS.

I'M SORRY I WENT THROUGH THAT KIND OF QUICK, BUT IT'S A LOT TO COVER.

COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH? THANK YOU, MAYOR. JUST A COUPLE OF COMMENTS, I KNOW THAT CREDIT ONLY IS KIND OF DIFFICULT IN GARLAND.

IF YOU LOOK AT OUR GP&L NUMBERS AND LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT PAY CASH THROUGH WESTERN UNION, WE GET A LOT OF OUR UNDER BANKED FOLKS.

SO I'D LIKE TO SEE A CASH OPTION AT THE TICKET BOOTHS.

IF WE NEED TO IMPROVE OUR ROI, WE MIGHT SAY, HEY, DURING THE WEEKDAYS IT'S WELL, AND I'M NOT EVEN SURE THAT WE NEED TO HAVE TICKET PEOPLE OUT THERE DURING THE WEEK, THE NON HOLIDAY WEEKDAYS.

BUT WE COULD CERTAINLY SAY, HEY, IT'S HALF OFF IF YOU'RE FROM GARLAND OR DALLAS AND IMPROVE THAT OPERATING CASH POSITION A BIT.

AND I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW, YOU KNOW, I KNOW DURING THE PANDEMIC WE HAD A LOT OF FOLKS SETTING UP OUT THERE DURING THE WORKDAY MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

BUT I'D BE SURPRISED IF THAT DIDN'T DROP OFF BACK TO PRE PANDEMIC LEVELS.

DO WE REALLY SEE A USE CASE FOR OR NEED FOR HAVING ATTENDANCE OUT THERE MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY? THANK YOU FOR CLARIFYING THAT.

WE DID NOT PLAN TO HAVE STAFF OUT THERE DURING THAT TIME.

IT WOULD ONLY BE FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY AND HOLIDAY MONDAYS JUST TO REGULATE BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE WE WERE REALLY SEEING THE BUMP ON ANY GIVEN NICE WEEKEND.

WE WERE GETTING TWENTY FIVE HUNDRED PLUS.

RIGHT. LAST YEAR IN THE YEAR BEFORE COVID.

SO NO, WE WOULD NOT PLAN TO STAFF THAT.

SO THAT'S WHERE THOSE EIGHTY FOUR WORKING DAYS COME IN, COME INTO PLAY AND IT WORKS OUT PERFECT THAT IT'S TWO THOUSAND HOUR PART TIME EMPLOYEES.

YOU SAID THAT AND I SHOULD BE DOING MATH BUT IT IS A MONDAY AND THAT'S MY EXCUSE.

SO I THINK THAT'S ALL I HAD OTHERWISE.

I MEAN IT SEEMS LIKE A WORKABLE PLAN.

YOU KNOW, EVEN IF WE TRY IT FOR A YEAR OR TWO, IT DOESN'T PAN OUT THE WAY WE WANT IT.

IT'S NOT A HUGE INVESTMENT OF.

YEAH, I LIKE WHERE IT'S GOING, SO I DO SUPPORT IT.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

PRO TEM NICKERSON? THANK YOU, MAYOR. I KIND OF WANT TO ECHO THAT, TOO.

THE THOUGHT OF HAVING THE ITEM ABOUT PAYMENT AND CHARGING FOR IT DOWN THERE HAVING TO BE.

I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THAT.

AND I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE IF LEGAL IS ON WHAT THAT EXACTLY MEANS BECAUSE IT SAYS INSIDE THE TAKE LINE AND THAT TAKE LINE IS ONLY, WHAT, EIGHT OR NINE FEET OFF THE WATER? AND SINCE WE'RE REALLY NOT IN CONTROL FROM THE TAKE LINE TO THE WATER, BUT WE ARE IN CONTROL OF OUR PARK ITSELF, ARE WE REALLY NEEDING HAVING A CONFLICT THERE WITH CHARGING FOR NONLOCAL VERSUS GARLAND RESIDENTS? BECAUSE REALLY. WE'RE NOT THERE TO POLICE THE TAKE LINE, THAT'S THE CITY OF DALLAS, AND I JUST I'M CURIOUS IF THERE'S A, HOW THAT READS IN THE DOCUMENT AND WHAT'S THE INTERPRETATION FROM OUR STAFF HERE? BRAD, YOU CAN HELP ME HERE.

AND IT'S NOT ADDRESSED IN OUR LOCAL, THE CURRENT ONE THAT WE HAVE WITH CITY OF DALLAS, ALTHOUGH I THINK WE'D HAVE TO APPROACH THEM ON THIS AND THEY HADN'T BEEN FULLY VETTED.

[01:10:04]

AS FAR AS ACCESS TO THAT PART OF THE PARK.

NOW, BEAR IN MIND, MOST OF THE PARK TO MY MEMORY IS WITHIN THE CITY HERE.

AND YOU'RE REALLY TALKING ABOUT ACCESS TO THE WATER.

I DON'T SEE THAT AS A HUGE CONCERN BECAUSE IT'S OUR PARK FOR THE MOST PART . OK.

HAVE TO GET CLEARANCE ON IT, BUT I DON'T SEE THAT AS A HUGE ISSUE WITH THEM.

I UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM.

WELL, I'M GLAD IT CAME UP, THOUGH.

I MEAN, IT'S INTERESTING AND GOOD THAT WE KNOW ABOUT IT, BUT I KIND OF AGREE WITH YOU ON IT. THE OTHER QUESTION I GUESS I HAVE, ANDY, IS, HAS THERE AND I GUESS IT GETS BACK TO YOUR YOUR OPERATING COSTS AND THE NEEDS THERE THAT THE CAR, THE PARK WOULD REQUIRE.

AND FIRST OFF, I WANT TO SAY THAT YOUR PRESENTATION IS REALLY GOOD AND GOOD FOR THE HISTORY, IT'S GOOD FOR WHAT YOU'VE DONE ON THE ECONOMIC SIDE OF IT.

AND THE IDEAS YOU HAVE, I THINK, LOOK PRETTY GOOD.

I APPRECIATE THAT. BUT THE IDEA ABOUT THE OPERATING COSTS.

DO WE KNOW AT ALL OR HAVE SOME IDEA OF WHAT IT DOES COST US NOW TO MAN THIS THING ON THESE WEEKENDS WITH POLICE AND AN EXTRA PARK STAFF AND HOW MAYBE THAT COULD, I GUESS, , REDUCE WHAT WE'RE GOING TO INCUR WITH A FULL OPERATING KIND OF SETUP.

BUT YET REALITY IS IT WAS ALREADY COSTING US SOMETHING DOWN THERE.

AND WHAT IS THAT COST? I DO NOT HAVE THAT INFORMATION AT MY FINGERTIPS, BUT I DO KNOW IN THE PAST IT HAS BEEN A BUDGETED ITEM BOTH ON THE POLICE DEPARTMENT SIDE AND THE PARK SIDE.

AND IT HAS CAUSED A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT, I THINK, OF OVERTIME AND SOME OTHER ISSUES THAT WE NEEDED TO RESPOND TO.

WE JUST HAD THE. BUDGET FOR I JUST DON'T KNOW THOSE NUMBERS OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD, BUT I DON'T BELIEVE IT WAS. OK, WELL, IT MIGHT BE SOMETHING MAYBE TO TAKE A LOOK AT IF WE GET SERIOUS ON KIND OF OPTIONS HERE.

THE AND I GUESS THE OTHER QUESTION I HAD WITH THE KIND OF THE LAYOUT YOU HAD AS YOU MOVE THE TICKET BOOTH SORT OF DOWN INTO THE PARK.

BUT I COULDN'T REALLY AND YOU KNOW, HOW THEY SEE THE CARS HAVE STACKED UP IN THE PAST AND YOU HAVE TO TURN ALL THOSE PEOPLE AROUND.

HOW WOULD WE ADDRESS IT FURTHER UP THE HIGHWAY? WOULD WE HAVE SOME PERMANENT MORE SIGNAGE WITH RULES AND REGULATIONS? AND SECOND. WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO TURN THOSE FOLKS AROUND IF WE TRY TO TURN THEM AROUND RIGHT IN FRONT OF THAT GATE? I CAN SEE THAT BEING VERY CONGESTED.

AND THEN IF YOU ALLOW THEM TO GO ALL THE WAY DOWN THROUGH THE PARK AND MAKE THAT TURN AROUND, IT MAY NEVER COME OUT.

THEY'RE JUST GOING TO START PARKING.

RIGHT. SO AND I'M GLAD YOU BROUGHT THAT UP.

I'LL ADDRESS THEM SEPARATELY.

SO, AGAIN, WHAT WE WERE SHOWN WAS VERY SCHEMATIC.

THERE'S A COUPLE OF CHALLENGES RIGHT THERE.

YOU EITHER HAVE TO MOVE DOWN TO WHERE IT IS OR FURTHER SUBSTANTIALLY BECAUSE THERE'S A DRAINAGE CHALLENGE RIGHT THERE.

WATER ALL WANTS TO FUNNEL RIGHT THERE.

SO WE WOULD TAKE ALL THAT INTO ACCOUNT.

IF YOU'LL RECALL LAST TIME, YOU GUYS MIGHT HAVE BEEN AT A STATE PARK, SAME KIND OF THING.

IF YOU GO IN AND THERE'S AN IMMEDIATE U-TURN RIGHT THERE.

SO WE WOULD WE WOULD PUT THAT U-TURN PRIOR TO THE GATE SO THAT THEY COULD NOT ENTER WITHOUT A PROPER PASS OR RECEIPT TO GET IN THERE.

SO WE WOULD WORK ALL THOSE DETAILS OUT AND IT MIGHT LITERALLY JUST TAKE US OUT THERE WITH THE CREWS FLAGGING IT AND TAKING MEASUREMENTS SO THAT WE KNOW THAT IT'LL WORK.

THE OTHER QUESTION IS, AND I MEANT TO GET AN EXHIBIT FOR THIS, BUT IT IS VERY POSSIBLE THAT CARS COULD QUEUE UP FIRST THING IN THE MORNING WAITING TO GET IN AT EIGHT A.M.

AND THERE COULD BE FIVE HUNDRED BACKED ALL THE WAY UP LOCUST GROVE AND I'VE HEARD FROM THE POLICE DEPARTMENT. IT IS NOT UNHEARD OF FOR THAT TO GO ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE FRONTAGE ROAD. AND I DON'T KNOW THE WAY TO PREVENT THAT OTHER THAN TRYING TO BE LIKE CHIC-FIL-A AND GET THEM IN AS QUICK AS WE CAN GO UP THE LINE WITH MOBILE.

WE'VE LOOKED AT MOBILE CREDIT CARD MACHINES AND WAY TO HANDLE CASH AS FAST AS POSSIBLE.

BUT THAT IS A VERY REAL CONCERN, I THINK.

AND THAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE PAST, WHERE SOON AS THEY LEARNED WE WERE HAVING SOME CONTROL OVER THE POPULATION AND WE'RE LIMITING THE NUMBERS IN THERE, THEY STACKED UP VERY I'VE SEEN THEM IN THERE AT SIX THIRTY SEVEN IN THE MORNING PARKING ALREADY, SO.

YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT. WELL, I KNOW YOU'RE FAR FROM FINISHED WITH DESIGN AND ALL THIS AND

[01:15:01]

LOOKING AT IT, BUT JUST ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS.

I SEE THE CHIEF KIND OF POPPED IN THERE A LITTLE BIT.

CHIEF, I WOULD WONDER AS WELL FROM BOTH YOUR YOUR THOUGHTS ON IT BASED ON THE EXPERIENCE YOU'VE HAD WITH TRYING TO MANAGE IT PREVIOUSLY.

WHAT YOU SEE HERE THAT WOULD WORK? INCLUDING IN THIS WOULD BE MESSAGING.

WE'VE PUT MESSAGING AND WE HAVE THOSE MESSAGE BOARDS THAT WE USED IN THE PAST, BOTH WHEN THE PARK IS CLOSED AND ANNOUNCING THAT THERE'S A CHARGE FOR THINGS LIKE THAT THAT SEEM TO HAVE HELPED, THAT DIDN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

THERE'S A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT STOP AND ASK QUESTIONS THAT WE WOULD HAVE THOSE MESSAGE BOARDS OUT THERE.

AND THE OPERATING COST.

DOES IT ACCOUNT FOR BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, YOU'RE GOING TO STILL HAVE THE ISSUE WITH FOLKS TRYING TO PARK UP IN A NEIGHBORHOOD AND WALK DOWN.

SO DOES THAT OPERATING COSTS, ANDY AND CHIEF, DOES THAT DOES THAT FIGURE IN HERE, ARE YOU STILL GOING TO HAVE A NEED FOR SOME POLICE UP IN THE CRUISER IS KIND OF GOING THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOODS? I DEFINITELY THINK IT WOULD STILL BE A NEED, ESPECIALLY ON THE HOLIDAYS, FOR POLICE AND CRUISERS. WE DO HAVE THAT BUDGETED.

WE'VE HAD THAT BUDGET IN THE PAST FOR SPECIAL EVENTS, AND THAT'S PART OF OUR SPECIAL EVENTS BUDGET, WHICH WAS INCLUDED IN WINDSURF PARK.

BUT THAT WOULD [INAUDIBLE].

AND I GUESS THE LAST COMMENT, ANDY, BACK TO YOU, IS, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE THAT HOUSING ADDITIONS RIGHT DOWN THERE NEXT TO THE ENTRANCE AND WE HAVE THE TOWNHOUSES BUILT IN THERE. AND THAT GATE, HOW WOULD WE MANAGE? I MEAN, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO MANAGE IT SO THAT A CITIZEN CAN GET IN AND IN AND OUT OF HIS GATE AT ANY TIME, EVEN WHEN THE CARS ARE STACKED UP.

WHAT'S THE THOUGHT ON HOW WE GET THEM IN AND OUT OF THERE? RIGHT. SO OUR ACCESS CONTROL WOULD NOT BEGIN UNTIL AFTER THEIR PRIVATE GATED COMMUNITY.

THAT'S KIND OF THE WAY IT OPERATES NOW.

THE ACTUAL GATE IS FURTHER DOWN AND THEN WE GRAB KIND OF UP AGAINST THE BACK OF THEIR RETAINING WALL AND THEN GO TOWARDS THE WATER TO CONTAIN THAT SIDE.

BUT IT'S SHAPED IN SUCH A WAY THAT THEY CAN GET INTO THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD UNIMPEDED.

OK, ALL RIGHT.

WELL, I APPRECIATE THE INPUT.

IT WAS A GOOD, GOOD FIRST PASS AT ALL OF THIS.

AND I LIKE WHAT WE'RE DOING.

THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE'VE GOT TO ADDRESS LONG TERM AND IT IS GOING TO TAKE SOME MONEY, UNFORTUNATELY, ALTHOUGH I WAS A LITTLE BIT SURPRISED THAT THE COST WASN'T MORE, ACTUALLY.

SO KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ON FOCUSING ON THIS.

AND I KNOW THE CITIZENS WILL APPRECIATE IT AND IT WILL BE A, IT'S GREAT PARK, WE NEED TO USE IT. SO. ALL RIGHT.

WELL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN? THANK YOU, MAYOR. THANK YOU, MR. HESSER AND STAFF, FOR BRINGING THIS BACK SO QUICKLY, I THOUGHT IT WAS ACTUALLY GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE WHILE LONGER. THE FIRST THING IS, I NOTICED IT WILL TAKE ABOUT SIX MONTHS TO GET ALL THIS IN PLACE.

THE LONG LEAD ITEM IS ESSENTIALLY THE PREFABRICATION OF THE TICKET BOOTH ONCE IT GETS HAULED IN ON A TRAILER. WE WOULD HAVE THE FOUNDATION READY TO GO, AND IT WOULD JUST SET RIGHT ON TOP OF IT, SO WE WOULD NEED TO BOTH CONSIDER THAT AS WELL AS ALL THE OTHER THINGS TO BE COORDINATED.

IT COULD BE A LONG, LONG DISCUSSION IN AND OF ITSELF FOR THE TIMING.

SURE. I GUESS WHAT I'M THINKING IS THAT I ALSO LIKE TO HAVE A PLAN OF WHAT TO DO IN THE INTERIM ARE WE'RE GOING TO KEEP IT CLOSED UNTIL THAT FOR THE SUMMER? I'D LIKE TO SEE IT OPEN.

[INAUDIBLE] I'D LIKE TO SEE IT.

I MEAN, EVEN IF WE'RE NOT CHARGING ANY FEES OR ANYTHING, BUT IF WE CAN KIND OF METER THE ACCESS LIKE WE'VE DONE IN THE PAST, I MEAN, I ASSUME WE STILL HAVE THAT CAPABILITY TO KIND OF JUST SAY WE'RE NOT TAKING ANY FEES, BUT TWENTY FIVE HUNDRED FIVE HUNDRED CARS THAT WERE DONE BECAUSE IT SEEMS TO ME THAT BY THE TIME THAT COMES IN, IF WE'RE TALKING SIX MONTHS AND THAT MATH PUTS US IN NOVEMBER.

SO, YOU KNOW, THAT THAT WOULD BE A GOOD TIME, KIND OF THE OFF SEASON TO PUT THAT IN AND PAVE IT AND DO WHATEVER WHEN NOBODY'S AROUND.

BUT FOR THIS BUT FOR THIS COMING SUMMER, I THINK THERE'S AN EXCELLENT QUESTION OF WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO. YOU KNOW, IF WE'RE GOING TO DO IS WE TALKED LAST TIME ABOUT ABOUT TELLING PEOPLE THAT WE'RE NOT GOING TO POLICE TO TAKE LINE, BUT IF WE TELL PEOPLE, YOU KNOW, CITY OF DALLAS THINKS YOU OUGHT NOT SWIM, THEN I DON'T KNOW REALLY KNOW THAT WE HAVE MUCH OF AN OBLIGATION TO DALLAS ON THEIR TAKE LINE.

IF WE'RE TELLING PEOPLE NOT TO SWIM, WE'LL LET DALLAS FIGURE THAT OUT.

I'M OK WITH CHARGING ZERO FOR RESIDENTS, BUT I'D ALSO BE FOR CHARGING ZERO FOR RESIDENTS MORE A LOT LESS WORRIED ABOUT THE.

DO WE TAKE THE CASH ISSUE.

[01:20:01]

BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, IF THERE WAS A PUSH TO CHARGE FIVE DOLLARS OR SOMETHING FOR RESIDENTS PER CAR, I WOULDN'T NOT BE OPPOSED FOR THAT TO THAT NECESSARILY.

BUT I THINK THAT'S SOMETHING, YOU KNOW WHAT? MAYBE COME BACK LOOK AT AFTER IT'S BEEN IN OPERATION IN A YEAR FOR A YEAR OR SO AFTER NEXT YEAR'S SUMMER, WE'LL HAVE A PRETTY GOOD IDEA OF KIND OF WHAT THE MIX LOOKS LIKE.

AND I DON'T MIND LOSING IT'S NOT REALLY LOSING MONEY.

WE HAVE A LOT OF AMENITIES THAT WE PROVIDE TO OUR CITIZENS.

AND SO WE'RE USING CITIZEN TAX DOLLARS FOR THAT.

SO WE'RE LOSING MONEY.

THIS ISN'T SOMETHING THAT I SEE THAT NEEDS TO MAKE MONEY, SO TO SPEAK.

BUT METERING THIS ACCESS AND HAVING THE OUTSIDE FOLKS PAY FOR IT HELPS US KIND OF AMELIORATE SOME OF THE COSTS, BUT ALSO JUST CONTROL THE VOLUME AND THUS CONTROL THE EXPERIENCE. SO I THINK IT'S GREAT.

I'M VERY SUPPORTIVE OF IT.

I SAY LET'S GO AHEAD AND DO IT.

AND THEN, YOU KNOW, AFTER IT'S BEEN IN FOR A YEAR, LET'S BRING IT BACK AND I'LL BE LONG GONE, THANKFULLY. BUT WE ALL CAN LOOK AT THE FEES THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THAT AND IF WE'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE. BUT IN THE MEANTIME, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT OPEN, I THINK, AS SOON AS PRACTICABLE.

AND IF WE HAVE CONCERNS, I KNOW WE TALKED ABOUT THIS LAST YEAR AROUND THIS TIME BECAUSE OF COVID CONCERNS OR OTHER STUFF, IF WE WANT TO TRY AND LIMIT THAT TO A THOUSAND PEOPLE INSTEAD OF TWO THOUSAND OR TWENTY FIVE HUNDRED, I'D BE OK WITH THAT, TOO.

OR EVEN IF YOU WANTED TO LIMIT IT FOR NOW TO GARLAND RESIDENTS, I'D BE OK WITH THAT.

THAT WOULD SIMPLY BE A IF WE HAVE SOMEONE COUNTING THE CLICKER AT THE GATE THAT SIMPLY B E DO YOU HAVE A CITY OF GARLAND ID OR DRIVER'S LICENSE WITH GARLAND ON IT.

ANYWAY, JUST LIKE WE DO WITH THE, AT THE LANDFILL.

DID YOU HAVE A DO YOU HAVE A UTILITY BILL.

DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOW [INAUDIBLE].

THANK YOU. THANK YOU, SIR.

MR. NEIGHBOR, YOU POPPED UP.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. I NEED TO JUMP IN HERE.

IT'S A GOOD POINT, BRIAN ENGLAND WAS TEXTING ME AS WE SPOKE, AND HE IDENTIFIED A PROVISION IN THE CURRENT LOCAL AGREEMENT THAT WE DO A PARITY TO DALLAS RESIDENTS SO THAT WE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO.

AND SOMEWHERE ON THE SCREEN, I THINK BRIAN IS AVAILABLE.

SO WHATEVER WE CHARGE FOR GARLAND RESIDENTS, IT HAS TO BE AVAILABLE TO DALLAS RESIDENTS, TOO. AND THE PROBLEM THERE IS THE CONFIGURATION.

IT'S NOT SO MUCH THE OWNERSHIP OF THE PARK.

AS I SAID, THE TACK LINE IS TECHNICALLY DALLAS, WHICH WE HAVE THROUGH THEN INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT. BUT THE CONFIGURATION OF THE PARK WHERE THE TACK LINE LIES WITH RESPECT ACCESS, UNLESS WE FOUND SOME OTHER WAY IN, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THAT TACK LINE ISSUE. AND THAT'S THE PARITY ISSUE.

LET ME PAUSE HERE AND SAY, IF MR. ENGLAND HAS A DIFFERENT TO SAY, THERE'S.

WELL, APPARENTLY NOT.

HE DISAPPEARED AND THEN HE CAME BACK AND NOW I I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN HEAR ME, I'M HAVING TROUBLE WITH MY AUDIO, BUT NO, THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.

THE TAKE LINE LINES UP PARTIALLY THROUGH THE ENTRYWAY AND THEN CUTS ACROSS ABOUT 10 TO 15 FEET INTO THAT LOWER PARKING LOT.

SO WE CERTAINLY DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH DALLAS ON THAT.

OK. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS? THANK YOU, MAYOR. THANK YOU, MR. HESSER. I JUST WANT TO PICK IT BACK FIRST THING I AGREE WITH COUNCILMAN AUBIN, I'D LIKE TO SEE US DO SOMETHING ON AN INTERIM BASIS OVER IN THE PARK.

I ALSO AGREE WITH HIM, I THINK WE SHOULD DO SOME ADJUSTMENTS IN LIGHT OF WE'RE STILL DEALING WITH COVID. SO WHATEVER THOSE NUMBERS LIKE BELOW TWENTY FIVE HUNDRED, I WOULD BE SUPPORTIVE OF THAT, BUT I CERTAINLY WOULD SUPPORT THAT.

I HAVE THREE QUESTIONS.

ONE, I WANT BE SURE I UNDERSTAND THIS IF FROM THE LAST EXCHANGE THAT I JUST HEARD FROM MY CITY ATTORNEY. IF, IN FACT, WHETHER IF IT'S FREE TO GARLAND RESIDENTS, THAT MEANS IT MUST BE FREE TO DALLAS RESIDENTS, CORRECT? THAT IS CORRECT. YEAH, I'M SORRY, I CAN'T CLICK, BUT.

OK. ALL RIGHT.

THERE HAD TO BE PARITY.

WHATEVER THE THE TREATMENT IS FOR GARLAND RESIDENTS, THE TREATMENT WOULD BE FOR DALLAS RESIDENTS. OK.

OK, I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTOOD THAT ANSWER.

OK, ON THE PAYMENT METHODS, THIS IS WHEN WE GO WHEN WE IMPLEMENT THAT GO FULL BLOWN.

AND MY QUESTION IS TO BRIAN, KIND OF LIKE FOR YOU TO CHIME IN ON THIS, YOU KNOW, I WOULD

[01:25:02]

PREFER I'M NOT A FAN OF CASH.

I THINK IT BRINGS SOME OTHER DYNAMICS TO THE PARK AND TO THE STAFF THAT ARE THERE, SO I'D JUST LIKE TO GET CHIEF BRYAN, YOU, TOO, MR. HESSER TO CHIME IN ON THAT.

IT MAY BE IT MAY NOT BE A SITUATION OF EITHER OR IT CAN BE AND BOTH.

BUT I KNOW SOME PARKS EVEN HAVE WHERE YOU CAN ACCESS USE PASSES ONLINE TO MINIMIZE THE NEED FOR CASH EXCHANGES.

AND LIKE I SAID, I'M JUST NOT A FAN OF HAVING CASH DOWN THERE.

SO CHIEF BRYAN WOULD YOU CHIME IN ON THAT AND WHAT DIFFERENCE? WHAT CHALLENGES DO YOU FEEL , CHIEF, WHAT WITH THAT PRESENT, IF, IN FACT, IT WAS SOME CASH ADMITTANCE EXCHANGES DOWN AT THE PARK? CERTAINLY WE WOULD TAKE ADDITIONAL PRECAUTIONS WITH CASH AND WHAT WE WOULD HAVE AT THE LOCATION IS SOME TYPE OF DROP BOX, AND SO IT'S A LOCKED BOX THAT IT WOULD TAKE AN OUTSIDE KEY TO COME IN TO ACCESS TO THAT, TO GETTING TO THE CASH WOULDN'T BE POSSIBLE OR ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE. WE WOULD ALSO HAVE ADDITIONAL SECURITY IN THE MARSHALS AND POLICE NEARBY IF YOU NEEDED THEM. BUT CERTAINLY AND I KNOW ANDY'S GOT SOME PLANS ON THAT AS WELL.

CERTAINLY CASH DOES CHANGE THE DYNAMICS A LITTLE BIT.

I'LL LET ANDY EXPLAIN THE DROP BOX.

RIGHT. SO IT DOES PRESENT SOME CHALLENGES THAT I WOULD BE A LITTLE BIT CONCERNED ABOUT FOR THE STAFF.

BUT THERE ARE WAYS TO HAVE A SECURE DROP BOX THAT HAS ACCESS CONTROL.

IT DOES ADD THE DYNAMIC, AS WE DO WITH OTHER CASH LOCATIONS LIKE REC CENTERS, OTHER PLACES THAT WE COLLECT CASH IN THE CITY.

THE MARSHALS HAVE A PROTOCOL.

SO IT WOULD TAKE AN ESCORTED TRIP, I WOULD ASSUME, FROM FROM THE LOCATION BACK TO WHEREVER WE DO OUR CASH DROPS IN A MORE SECURE LOCATION FOR ALL CITY DEPOSITS, WHICH WOULD ADD A LITTLE BIT OF STAFF TIME.

WE'D HAVE TO FACTOR THAT IN FOR THOSE FOLKS, BUT IT MAY BE SOMETHING THAT WE EXPERIMENT WITH. IF IT BECOMES PROBLEMATIC, WE CAN ALWAYS ADDRESS IT AND CHANGE IT.

BUT I JUST I KNOW THAT WHEN WE TALK TO THESE OTHER CITIES, SEVERAL OF THEM DID HANDLE CASH AND THEY ULTIMATELY GOT AWAY FROM IT.

AND IT DIDN'T BECOME AN ISSUE.

SO WE JUST WANT TO PUT ALL THAT OUT ON THE TABLE FOR DISCUSSION.

OK, THANK YOU, SIR. AND LASTLY, MR. HESSER, YOU MENTIONED AND I MISSED YOU MENTIONING THE NEIGHBORHOOD PARKING AND WE WOULD HAVE TO WORK IT OUT WITH NEIGHBORS.

COULD YOU GO WITH THAT PIECE ONE MORE TIME FOR ME PLEASE, SIR? YES, SIR. SO THAT WAS REALLY MORE IN RELATION TO WE DO HAVE A LOT OF PEDESTRIAN WALK INS.

SO THERE'S A LOT OF FOLKS THAT WE KNOW FROM THE IMMEDIATE TWO NEIGHBORHOODS ON EITHER SIDE OF LOCUST GROVE USE THAT THEIR FAMILIES ARE WALKING OR INDIVIDUALS.

THEY WALK THEIR DOGS. SO WE'D HAVE TO WE WERE KIND OF PROPOSING THAT WE COULD IT'S VERY EASY TO RUN A GIS LIST OF ALL THESE ADDRESSES THAT WE CAN JUST CHECK CHECK AGAINST THOSE FOLKS THAT WE LOOKED AT ANNUAL PASSES.

THAT'S ALWAYS AN OPTION. WE COULD MAKE THAT AVAILABLE JUST TO KIND OF SMOOTH THAT TRANSITION SO FOLKS CAN COME IN AND USE THE PARK THAT'S VIRTUALLY IN THEIR BACKYARD.

SO WE WOULD EXPLORE THOSE LOGISTICS.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU, SIR.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. SIR, EXCUSE ME, COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN? THANK YOU, MAYOR. ANDY, I NOTICED THAT SEVERAL OF THESE PARKS THAT YOU MENTIONED HAD THINGS LIKE SEASON PASSES AND I WAS WONDERING IF YOU GUYS CONSIDERED SOME KIND OF SEE SOMETHING IN IT.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH IT, WITH BEACH STICKERS AND STUFF LIKE THAT SEASON PASSES CAN KIND OF FACILITATE OR QUICKEN THE ENTRY.

AND SO IF YOU HAVE A YOU KNOW, SO AND IF WE'RE GOING TO I KIND OF FEEL LIKE IF IT'S I DON'T KNOW, AGAIN, ALL THE GEOGRAPHIC OF WHO'S COMING TO THIS PARK.

BUT I FEEL LIKE IF WE MAKE IT FREE FOR DALLAS AND GARLAND RESIDENTS, THEN WE'RE PROBABLY NOT GOING TO RECOVER MUCH AT ALL.

IT WOULDN'T BE WORTH THE COST TO HAVE ANYBODY THERE.

AND SO I WONDER IF THEN IF YOU SAY A RESIDENT DALLAS RATE WOULD BE.

YOU KNOW, FIVE DOLLARS, TEN DOLLARS.

AND, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, WE CHARGE FOR WE CHARGE FOR A LOT OF OUR RECREATIONAL FACILITIES, WE DON'T REALLY CHARGE FOR PARKS, BUT WE CHARGE FOR REC CENTERS AND POOLS AND OTHER STUFF. SO I THINK A FIVE DOLLAR CHARGE WOULD REALLY NOT BE TOO MUCH AND MAYBE OFFER A TWENTY FIVE DOLLAR PASS.

YOU GET UP, YOU GET A STICKER AND IT JUST YOU BAM, YOU PUT IT ON YOUR WINDSHIELD AND THEN THAT'LL FACILITATE ENTRY.

IT MIGHT AMELIORATE SOME OF THESE ISSUES.

[01:30:01]

I DON'T KNOW. I DON'T KNOW EXACTLY.

OF COURSE, I'M JUST HERE WITH THE IDEAS I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA, I DON'T KNOW HOW WE WOULD ACTUALLY IMPLEMENT IT IN TERMS OF SELLING PEOPLE THE STICKERS OR WHATEVER.

BUT YOU COULD DO SOMETHING TO DO SOME KIND OF TRANSACTION, WHETHER IT'S ONLINE OR AT DUCKWORTH OR SOMETHING.

IN HERE YOU GO.

YOU GET YOUR STICKER. I'M VERY RETICENT TO TAKE CASH KNOWING, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, FROM AN AUDIT COMMITTEE PERSPECTIVE, IT'S LIKE THE ALL THE CASH HANDLING PROCEDURES.

AND EVERYTHING WE HAVE TO DO IS IT JUST THAT ADDS A LOT MORE.

I FEEL IT ADDS A LOT MORE TIME.

AND SO IF YOU WANT TO, YOU KNOW, FIND A WAY TO SELL PEOPLE, IF THEY WANT TO BRING FIVE DOLLARS CASH TO, YOU KNOW, TO SOME OTHER LOCATION WHERE WE NORMALLY HANDLE CASH AND YOU CAN GET IT, MAYBE YOU GET A DAY PASS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, SOME KIND OF WAY TO DO THAT.

SO WE'RE NOT PUTTING ADDITIONAL BURDEN ON STAFF, BUT WE'RE STILL ACHIEVING SOME OF OUR GOALS HERE. IT'S JUST A THOUGHT, OK, YES, SIR, WE COULD LOOK INTO THE LOGISTICS, WE COULD LOOK INTO KIND OF THE BACK END LOGISTICS THAT GO ALONG WITH THAT AND SEE WHAT THE WHAT THE TRADE OFFS MIGHT BE.

AND SIMILARLY, ANYBODY WHO LIVES IN THOSE NEIGHBORHOODS.

WHO WANTS TO WALK INTO THE PARK, I MEAN, YOU COULD LITERALLY JUST MAIL THEM A PASS, A WALKERS PASS OR SOMETHING, YOU JUST HOLD UP A BIG RED CARD OR SOMETHING.

AND AND IT TAKES AWAY, I THINK, A LOT OF THE STAFF OVERHEAD FOR ADDRESSING ACCESS TO THE PARK. THANK YOU, MAYOR. THANK YOU, SIR.

IF I CAN ADD ONE THING THAT I DID NOT PUT IN THE SLIDE, THAT THERE WAS SOME DISCUSSION ABOUT ALL THE POSSIBILITIES FOR REVENUE RECOVERY IS WE COULD ALSO CONSIDER IF COST RECOVERY IS A CHALLENGE IN THE BUDGET, WHICH I THINK SAFE TO ASSUME IT IS A PRIORITY AT SOME LEVEL ANYWAY, IS THAT MAYBE ON THOSE MAJOR HOLIDAY WEEKENDS THAT ALL VEHICLES GET CHARGED, INCLUDING RESIDENTS JUST ON THOSE MAJOR WEEKENDS JUST BECAUSE OF THE WORKLOAD THAT IT ENTAILS, JUST FOR THOSE MAJOR WEEKENDS.

THAT'S FIVE HUNDRED CARS FOR THREE OR FOUR MAJOR WEEKENDS.

THAT'S A PRETTY GOOD BUMP, JUST TO KIND OF REALLY RAISE OUR CHANCES OF COST RECOVERY JUST ON THOSE THREE DAYS, WHICH I THINK MAYBE SELLS A LITTLE BETTER TO A RESIDENT BECAUSE THEY GET THE CHANCE TO GO ALL YEAR LONG ON THEIR OWN.

BUT ON A HOLIDAY, IT'S ALL HANDS ON DECK, MAXIMUM CAPACITY, THAT MAY BE A TAD BIT MORE JUSTIFIABLE. SO JUST A THOUGHT FOR CONSIDERATION.

OK, SIR.

ALL RIGHT, COUNCIL LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE CLEARED THE QUEUE ON THIS ITEM.

COUNCILMAN MCNEAL? THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

AND, CHIEF IN THE PAST.

HAVE WE HAD ANY FOOD TRUCKS OR ANYTHING TRYING TO GET OFF IN THERE? WE HAVE NOT HAD ANY OF THAT? NOT THAT I KNOW OF.[INAUDIBLE] FOOD TRUCKS OK. ALL RIGHT. AND THE REASON I SAID OBVIOUSLY, THEY ARE BECOMING BASICALLY MORE AND MORE PROMINENT THESE DAYS SO WE JUST MAY WANT TO CONSIDER THAT.

NOT THAT I HAVE A SOLUTION AT THE MOMENT, BUT WE MAY NEED TO CONSIDER HOW DO WE MITIGATE THAT IF THEY JUST DECIDE TO TRY TO GET IN THAT PART? THANK YOU, SIR. IT IS JUST FOR REFERENCE, IT IS CURRENTLY, THERE IS AN ORDINANCE PROVISION THAT GENERALLY PROHIBITS FOLKS FROM PROFITING ON IN CITY PARKS WITHOUT A PERMIT IN ORDER TO DO THAT. SO IT'S A FAIRLY EASY THING TO ADDRESS.

BECAUSE IT HAPPENS OFTEN, GOOD QUESTION.

OK, PERFECT, THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT.

SO LOOKS LIKE WE'RE BACK TO A CLEAR QUEUE ON THIS, JUST IN WATCHING EVERYONE'S REACTIONS AND NODDING, ET CETERA, IT LOOKS LIKE WE ARE IN FAVOR OF MOVING FORWARD WITH THE GATED CONTROLLED ACCESS, WITH EVERYTHING THAT ANDY HAD BROUGHT FORWARD IN THE PRESENTATION.

BUT I HAVE SEEN SOME SHAKING OF IT, NODDING OF HEADS THAT OBVIOUSLY, IF WE APPROVE THIS TONIGHT, IT WOULD STILL BE THIS FALL BEFORE WE HAVE ALL THE PIECES AND PARTS EVEN TO START ASSEMBLING THIS.

SO OBVIOUSLY, THAT PUTS US IN THE POINT WHERE WE NEED, I THINK THERE'S A CONSENSUS THAT WE WANT THE PARK OPEN BEFORE THERE AGAIN.

NOW I SEE THE HEADS NODDING.

SO ANDY, CHIEF, AS FAR AS GETTING THE PARK OPEN FOR THIS SUMMER, OBVIOUSLY HOLIDAYS INCLUDED, IF WE COULD GO AHEAD AND START THAT PROCESS OF THE PLANNING,

[01:35:06]

ET CETERA. NOW, ANDY, HOW WILL THIS WORK FOR EVERYTHING WE NEED TO DO THE GATED ENTRY AND ALL THAT? WILL THAT COME BACK TO US? HOW DOES THAT HOW, WHAT IS THE NEXT STEP ON THAT? AS FAR AS THE FINANCIAL SIDE OF THINGS.

WELL, SURE, I MEAN, THE FINANCIAL SIDE, OBVIOUSLY, BUT THERE'S YOU KNOW, NOT ONLY IS THERE JUST THE PURE PURCHASE OF SOME OF THE EQUIPMENT, ET CETERA, WILL IT REQUIRE ANY ADDITIONAL WORK FROM US AS FAR AS DESIGN AND ANY OF THE OTHER LOGISTICS INVOLVED IN IT? OR IS IT, YOU GOING TO BRING US A PLAN, SHOW US THE PROTOTYPE WITH A PRICE TAG? WE APPROVE IT AND YOU TAKE OFF.

WE COULD CERTAINLY DO THAT.

I THINK WE'LL PROBABLY NEED TO DOUBLE CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT THERE AREN'T THINGS THAT NECESSARILY TRIGGER SOME DESIGN.

IT'S VERY POSSIBLE.

I THINK I DO BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A STATE LAW THAT REQUIRES PURCHASES OVER INFRASTRUCTURE, PURCHASE OVER A CERTAIN DOLLAR AMOUNT MUST BE ENGINEERED.

AND THEY WILL ALSO HAVE TO BE RUN THROUGH THE PDLR PROCESS REVIEW FOR HANDICAP ACCESS.

LET ME DOUBLE CHECK THAT BEFORE A STAMP THAT FIRM.

SO IF THAT'S THE CASE, THAT WOULD WE WOULD TAKE CARE OF THAT, BRING SOMETHING BACK FIRM IN A PLAN FOR AND GET A LITTLE CLOSER TO EXACT PLANS AS SOON AS WE CAN.

OK, AND FOR MR. BRADFORD, OBVIOUSLY THIS IS GOING TO CARRY OVER INTO NEXT YEAR.

IS THIS, WILL THIS BE A BUDGETED ITEM OR A BUDGET AMENDMENT FOR THIS YEAR OR WILL IT MOVE FORWARD TO NEXT YEAR BUDGETING? OH, FACTUALLY.

ONCE WE START SPENDING SOME MONEY AND WE START GOING OUT FOR BIDS AND WE KNOW WHAT KIND OF DOLLAR AMOUNTS WE'RE GOING TO NEED, WE'LL BRING A BUDGET AMENDMENT FORWARD.

AND AS YOU STATED, THIS WILL CONTINUE OVER INTO THE NEXT YEAR.

AND SO YOU WILL SEE THE OPERATING SIDE OF IT IN YOUR OPERATING BUDGET THIS SUMMER FOR THE NEXT FISCAL YEAR AND THEN AS WELL AS A BUDGET AMENDMENT FOR THE REMAINDER OF THIS FISCAL YEAR. SO YOU WILL HAVE SEEN IT A LOT BY THE TIME WE GET THROUGH.

ALL RIGHT. VERY GOOD. OK, UNLESS THERE'S, LIKE I SAID, ANDY AND CHIEF BRYAN, IF YOU CAN START WORKING ON WHAT WE NEED TO DO FOR THE SUMMER TO GET THE PARK OPEN.

I'VE GOT MAYOR PRO TEM NICKERSON.

I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT KIND OF ON A ROLL HERE TONIGHT, I'VE GOT MY GUARD RAIL FOR LYONS ROAD. NOW I'M GETTING THE WINDSURF PARK PLAN.

I WANT TO THANK THE COUNCIL, AND THIS IS ONE HECK OF A WAY TO TAKE MAYBE ONE MORE, TWO MORE WEEKS AND MAYBE I CAN GET EVERYTHING DONE DOWN THERE.

I DON'T KNOW. IT'S GREAT.

BUT NO, REALLY, IT WAS A CHALLENGING PROBLEM THAT WE'VE ALL BEEN DEALING WITH.

AND I THINK YOU GUYS ALL FOR ALL YOUR GREAT IDEAS FOR PARTICIPATION.

AND I KNOW THE CITIZENS ARE GOING TO REALLY ENJOY WHAT THIS IS FINALLY GOING TO TURN OUT TO BE. SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, EVERYONE. ALL RIGHT, MR. HESSER, DO YOU NEED ANY MORE FROM US THIS EVENING? DO I NEED TO KIND OF REPORT BACK OF THE SOONEST THAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO BE BACK OPEN? I NEED TO CONFIRM THAT AND TRY TO GET AN IDEA OF WHAT IT'S GOING TO TAKE TO GET EVERYTHING SAFE AND ATTRACTIVE TO OPEN.

NOW, I THINK THAT ABSOLUTELY, IF YOU CAN MEET WITH STAFF AND YOU KNOW, THAT CAN BE COMMUNICATED BACK THROUGH TO THE COUNCIL, THROUGH, YOU KNOW, EITHER AN UPDATE THAT CAN BE SENT TO ALL COUNCIL.

YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW THAT IT NEEDS TO BE ANOTHER WORK SESSION ITEM.

YOU CAN DO YOUR PLANNING, IT CAN BE RUN THROUGH THE SYSTEM AND THEN PUSHED OUT TO US.

THANK YOU, SIR. ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT, GUESS WE'RE GOING TO GO AHEAD AND TAKE A RECESS AT THIS POINT.

WE'VE GOT A LITTLE BIT WAY, A LITTLE WAYS TO GO.

AND LET'S HAVE EVERYBODY BACK AT 7:55, PLEASE.

AND GOOD EVENING, WE ARE COMING BACK FROM RECESS IN THE MONDAY, MAY 3RD, 2021 WORK SESSION FOR THE GARLAND CITY COUNCIL.

WE ARE AT ITEM 4D PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE REPORT.

[4D. Public Safety Committee Report]

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA, WHO'S LEADING US OFF HERE? THANK YOU, MAYOR. WE REVIEW PARKING ORDINANCE FOR[INAUDIBLE]VEHICLES ON THE STREET AND

[01:40:08]

ALSO THE OTHER WAS CONSIDERING REQUIRED KEY STORAGE SYSTEMS FOR APARTMENT COMPLEXES. AND I'LL LET CHIEF BRYAN, GO OVER THERE THEM.

VERY GOOD.

MR. VERA AND MAYOR.

SO I'M GOING TO START WITH THE SECOND TOPIC FIRST, BECAUSE THAT'S GOING TO BE THE QUICK DISCUSSION, WHICH IS THE KEY STORAGE SYSTEM.

AND AS A REMINDER, THE GOAL WE WERE TRYING TO ACHIEVE HERE IS, IS THERE A WAY THAT FIRST RESPONDERS CAN ENTER QUICKLY INTO AN APARTMENT COMPLEX WITHOUT CAUSING DAMAGE OR WITHOUT A DELAY? AND WE, I THINK, MOST ARE FAMILIAR THAT WE HAVE A LOCKBOX PROGRAM IN THE CITY OF GARLAND. SO IF YOU'RE A RESIDENT IN A HOUSE IN THE CITY OF GARLAND AND YOU VOLUNTEER TO BE A PART OF THIS LOCKBOX PROGRAM, WE HAVE THE BOX AT YOUR HOUSE.

WE HAVE A CODE. AND IF THERE'S AN EMERGENCY, WE CAN GET INTO VERY QUICKLY TO ADDRESS THAT EMERGENCY. SO WE'RE LOOKING AT DOING THE SAME THING WITH AN APARTMENT COMPLEX ON A VOLUNTEER BASIS, A PROGRAM SIMILAR TO THAT, BUT A MORE CENTRAL LOCATION.

SO I'M JUST BRINGING THIS TO COUNCIL TO LET YOU KNOW WE'RE GOING TO TEST WE'RE REACHING OUT TO SOME SENIOR LIVING CENTERS NOW AND WE'RE GOING TO TEST THIS PROGRAM FOR ABOUT SIX MONTHS. AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO COME AND BRING BACK THOSE RESULTS TO THE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE AND THEN EVENTUALLY BACK TO COUNCIL.

SO IT'S JUST A QUICK UPDATE ON THAT TOPIC.

AND THE SECOND TOPIC IS THE PARKING ORDINANCE.

AND FOR THAT, I'M GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO MIKE [INAUDIBLE].

THANK YOU, CHIEF, MAYOR AND COUNCIL, GOOD EVENING.

SO SEVERAL COUNCIL MEMBERS HAVE ASKED ME AT VARIOUS TIMES ABOUT UNREGISTERED CARS PARKED ON OUR STREETS, AND I WILL TELL YOU THAT AMONG THE NUMEROUS PARKING COMPLAINTS THAT WE GET, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE A PARKING COMPLAINT SYSTEM THAT PEOPLE CAN GO ONLINE AND FILL OUT PARKING COMPLAINTS.

THAT HAS BEEN OVERWHELMINGLY SUCCESSFUL BEYOND MY WILDEST IMAGINATION, THAT PEOPLE WHO HAVE COMPLAINTS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD ABOUT PARKING CAN ENTER A COMPUTERIZED RECORD INTO OUR SYSTEM. AND WE GO OUT AND CHECK ON THEM VERY QUICKLY.

ONE OF THE ROUTINE COMPLAINTS THAT WE GET THAT WE REALLY HAVE NO WAY TO ADDRESS IS UNREGISTERED VEHICLES PARKED ON THE STREET.

NOW, YOU MIGHT WONDER HOW DOES THAT CREATE A PARKING PROBLEM? AND I WANT TO TELL YOU THAT WHAT WE SEE SOMETIMES, NOT ALL THE TIME, NOT EVERYBODY WHO COMPLAINS OF THIS, BUT SOME OF WHAT WE SEE IS THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO THEY GATHER CARS, THEY GATHER CARS FOR THE PURPOSE OF THEY'LL BUY THREE OR FOUR OF THEM AT A TIME OR FIVE, AND THEY'LL PARK THEM ALL UP AND DOWN THE STREETS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND ONE BY ONE, THEY'LL FIX THEM AND EVENTUALLY THEY'LL SELL THEM OFF AND THEN THEY'LL GATHER ANOTHER ONE. AND AT ANY ONE TIME, SOME OF THESE RESIDENTS HAVE FOUR OR FIVE CARS PARKED ON THE STREETS IN FRONT OF THEIR HOUSE.

TYPICALLY, THESE VEHICLES ARE EITHER UNREGISTERED AT ALL OR THE REGISTRATION IS LONG EXPIRED. AND SO THE COMPLAINT THAT WE GET AND I KNOW THAT THIS WAS REQUESTED TO BE BROUGHT TO THE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE BY MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL IS THAT THEY'RE UNREGISTERED VEHICLES AGAIN AT THE CURRENT TIME UNDER OUR ORDINANCE, UNDER THE ADMINISTRATIVE PARKING PROGRAM.

IT'S NOT A VIOLATION OF LAW TO HAVE AN UNREGISTERED VEHICLE JUST SITTING ON THE STREET.

IT'S AN UNREGISTERED, IT'S A VIOLATION OF LAW TO OPERATE AN UNREGISTERED VEHICLE.

AND SO WHAT THE COMMITTEE LOOKED AT WAS HOW DO WE ADDRESS THE PROBLEM WITHOUT BECOMING OVERBEARING, WITHOUT DRIVING UP AND DOWN THE STREETS LOOKING FOR UNREGISTERED VEHICLES BY A DAY OR TWO OR A WEEK OR A MONTH EVEN.

AND SO. ONE OF THE ONE OF THE SOLUTIONS THAT WAS DISCUSSED BY THE COMMITTEE, THE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE, WAS AN ORDINANCE WHEREBY OUR DEPUTIES WOULD BE ABLE TO WRITE TICKETS TO VEHICLES THAT WERE UNREGISTERED FOR THREE MONTHS OR MORE, THAT WERE EXPIRED BY THREE MONTHS OR MORE, OR THAT WERE WHOLLY UNREGISTERED, PARKED ON CITY STREETS.

I CAN TELL YOU THAT EVEN IF THE COUNCIL WERE TO ADOPT THE ORDINANCE AND KARMA, CAN YOU PUT IT UP FOR US, PLEASE? THEY HAD LEFT A COPY WITH KARMA TO PUT UP.

ANYWAY, IF YOU'LL SCROLL DOWN, JUST SO SECTION TWO AND THREE ARE SHOWING.

SO, SECTION TWO ACTUALLY, IT WOULD BE ONE AND TWO, I'M SORRY, JUST [INAUDIBLE].

SO ONE IS THE OWNER OF THE VEHICLE WOULD BE LIABLE FOR LEAVING IT UNREGISTERED ON A

[01:45:07]

PUBLIC ROADWAY. THE OTHER WOULD BE THE PERSON WHO PARKED IT.

THE TWO VERSIONS OF IT, IF YOU RECALL, UNDER CHAPTER 33 AND 3355A IS OUR MISCELLANEOUS PARKING WHERE WE ADOPTED A BUNCH OF THE STATE LAW PARKING AND HAD OTHER PARKING RESTRICTIONS THAT WERE INCLUDED IN OUR PARKING ORDINANCE MISCELLANEOUS RESTRICTIONS.

AND WHAT I WOULD SAY TO THE COUNCIL IS IF THE COUNCIL WERE TO ADOPT THIS, WHAT I WOULD PERCEIVE FROM OUR DEPUTIES IN TERMS OF ENFORCEMENT STRATEGY WOULD NOT BE THE DRIVING, BE DRIVING UP AND DOWN, CHECKING REGISTRATIONS TO SEE IF VEHICLES WERE UNREGISTERED.

WHAT HAPPENS WITH THESE VEHICLES IS WE GET CALLS.

THE VEHICLE'S BEEN PARKED ON THE STREET MORE THAN FORTY EIGHT HOURS.

WE GO OUT AND PUT A NOTICE ON THE VEHICLE AND WE [INAUDIBLE] THE TIRES.

SO WITHOUT ACTUALLY TOUCHING THE VEHICLE, WE NOTICE THE VEHICLE THAT'S IT'S BEEN THERE MORE THAN FORTY EIGHT HOURS AND WE RECORD WHERE THE VEHICLE IS AND WHAT PEOPLE DO WHEN THEY REALIZE THAT WE'RE ONTO THEM, IS THEY MOVE THE VEHICLE.

THEY MOVE IT TWO FORWARD OR TWO FEET BACK.

WE GO BACK, WE CHECK THE PLACEMENT OF THE TIRE STEM WITH OUR ELECTRONIC DEVICES AND FIND OUT THE VEHICLE HAS IN FACT MOVE A FOOT OR TWO.

IT'S UNREGISTERED. IT'S BEEN SITTING THERE FOR MONTHS, BUT THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT'S IN FACT, THERE.

I WOULD SUSPECT AS AN ENFORCEMENT STRATEGY, OUR DEPUTIES WOULD SIMPLY GO OUT AND RESPOND TO COMPLAINTS OF VEHICLES THAT ARE BEEN SITTING FOR A LONG TIME IN NEIGHBORHOODS WHERE THEY'RE UNREGISTERED, TAKING UP MANY OF THE PARKING SPACES IN FRONT OF THE HOMES.

AND THIS IS THE ORDINANCE THAT WAS VOTED OUT OF THE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE.

AND IT WOULD GIVE A PERSON 90 DAYS.

SO IT WOULD HAVE TO BE EXPIRED 90 DAYS OR MORE OR BE WHOLLY UNREGISTERED, JUST A VEHICLE THAT THEY PURCHASED, AND IT'S COMPLETELY UNREGISTERED, AND SITTING ON THE PUBLIC STREETS . AGAIN, I DON'T BELIEVE AS AN ENFORCEMENT MATTER, WE WOULD BE DRIVING AROUND LOOKING FOR UNREGISTERED VEHICLES, RATHER, I BELIEVE THAT OUR OFFICERS WOULD BE RESPONDING TO COMPLAINTS AND HAVE NOW A TOOL TO DEAL WITH THOSE COMPLAINTS, AND THAT'S THE ORDINANCE AND KARMA, YOU CAN UNSHARE THE SCREEN.

I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS.

THANK YOU, KARMA. ALL RIGHT, COUNCIL, ANY QUESTIONS FOR MR. BETTS OR CHIEF BRYAN ON THIS ITEM? IF MAYOR PRO TEM MORRIS? I DON'T HAVE A QUESTION THAT I'M ONE OF THE COUNCIL MEMBERS WHO'S TALKED TO MR. BETTS ABOUT THIS, THAT UNREGISTERED VEHICLES PARKED ON THE STREET AND STORED ON THE STREET FOR EXTENDED PERIODS OF TIME.

IT'S DEFINITELY A PROBLEM IN MY DISTRICT AND I'M VERY MUCH IN FAVOR OF THIS ORDINANCE AND BEING ABLE TO APPROACH IT.

I THINK IT'S A SENSIBLE THING.

I HAVE HAD MY VEHICLE GO UNREGISTERED JUST DUE TO MY BEING DISTRACTED, BUT NOT FOR 90 DAYS. SO I THINK THIS IS FAIR.

I THINK IT'S GENEROUS.

IT SEEMS TO BE YOU KNOW, IT NEEDS TO BE ENFORCEABLE.

SO I AM VERY MUCH IN FAVOR OF PROCEEDING WITH THIS, THANKS.

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN? YOU'RE MUTED. [INAUDIBLE] I'M A LITTLE BIT CONCERNED JUST ABOUT I ASSUME WE HAVE A LOT OF UNREGISTERED VEHICLES RIGHT NOW, FOLLOWING COVID.

AND A LOT OF PEOPLE FOR A LONG TIME.

THEY JUST I MEAN, I THINK IT'S ONLY IN THE LAST 30 DAYS THAT THE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENT HAS REALLY COME BACK IN, I THINK THE DEADLINE, IT HAD BEEN SUSPENDED.

I KNOW LICENSES WHERE, I'M A LITTLE CONCERNED ABOUT THE TIMELINE ON THAT, AND IT'S A BIT OF A BROAD NET. I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S SOME OTHER THING IF WE CAN ATTACH TO THAT LIKE.

YEAH, I DON'T KNOW, IS THERE SOME SOLUTION OTHER THAN I KNOW THE SOLUTION THAT WE GET FOR VEHICLES THAT HAVEN'T MOVED IS THAT PEOPLE GO OUT AND THEY PUSH THEM TWO FEET.

BUT I WONDER IF THERE'S SOMETHING THAT WE COULD COMBINE WITH THAT UNREGISTERED, I KNOW RIGHT NOW YOU CAN'T HAVE A VEHICLE THAT'S UNREGISTERED AND DOESN'T OPERATE, BUT MAYBE WE COULD DO SOMETHING WITH UNREGISTERED AND IN SOME OTHER ASPECT OF HAVING MOVED IN SUCH A SHORTER PERIOD OF TIME OR HAS BEEN SEEN ON THIS BLOCK OR I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S SOME OTHER WAY TO DO THAT SO THAT WE'RE NOT CASTING AS BROAD OF A NET.

THE OTHER QUESTION THAT I'VE HAD IS FOR COMPLETELY UNREGISTERED VEHICLES AS OPPOSED TO THE EXPIRED REGISTRATION AND TRYING TO MAKE THAT DISTINCTION EARLIER.

WHO DO WE KNOW TO SEND THE TICKET TO? WELL, YOU WOULD EITHER SEND IT TO THE OWNER OF THE VEHICLE AND THE OWNER OF THE VEHICLE WOULD BE LIABLE FOR IT IF THEY, SO WE'LL HAVE THE REGISTRATION PAPERWORK WILL SHOW WHO

[01:50:02]

THE LAST OWNER WAS, IF THEY'VE DISPOSED OF THE VEHICLE.

ORDINARILY, WHAT THEY WOULD DO IS TELL US WHO THEY SOLD THE VEHICLE TO THAT'S A DEFENSE AND THEY WOULD SAY, I SOLD IT TO THIS PERSON.

AND THEN WE WOULD SAY, OK.

AND THEN WE WOULD KNOW WHO TO ISSUE THE CITATION TO.

WITH RESPECT TO YOUR FIRST POINT, AS WE DID WITH ALL OF THE PARKING ORDINANCES AND ANY TIME WE INTRODUCE A NEW SECTION, WE WOULD ENFORCE THIS BY WARNING ONLY FOUR MONTHS, PROBABLY TWO MONTHS BEFORE WE WOULD EVER WRITE AN ACTUAL CITATION.

SO THERE WOULD BE PLENTY OF WARNING TIME FOR PEOPLE WHO HAD VEHICLES THAT WERE UNREGISTERED OR REGISTERED BEYOND THE 90 DAY PERIOD.

OK, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH? THANK YOU. FIRST QUESTION IS, ARE THERE OTHER CITIES IN THIS NORTH TEXAS AREA THAT HAVE SIMILAR ORDINANCES OR ARE WE GOING OUT AND.

BEING THE FIRST. I'M NOT I'M NOT ENTIRELY SURE I'VE SEEN IT BEFORE, I DON'T KNOW IN THE NORTH TEXAS AREA, I'VE SEEN IT BEFORE WHERE CITIES MAKE THE PARKING OF UNREGISTERED VEHICLES THE PARKING VIOLATION.

I WOULD HAVE TO DO RESEARCH AND COME BACK TO THE COUNCIL ON IT.

OK, THE ONLY REASON TO WORRY ABOUT THIS IS THE GOAL OF THE PARKING ENFORCEMENT PROGRAM REALLY HAS BEEN TO ENFORCE LAWS THAT ALREADY EXIST.

IF WE JUST DIDN'T HAVE THE MANPOWER TO DO IT AFTER HOURS.

THIS IS DIFFERENT BECAUSE WE'RE CREATING A LAW THAT DIDN'T EXIST BEFORE AND THEN WE ARE ENFORCING IT. THAT GIVES ME PAUSE AND I WORRY ABOUT, I WORRY ABOUT HEAPING ADDITIONAL BURDEN ON OUR RESIDENTS.

I APPRECIATE THE WORK THAT WAS DONE IN THE COMMITTEE AND MR. BETTS, AS ALWAYS, THE ORDINANCE IS WRITTEN VERY WELL AND I UNDERSTAND YOU'RE EXPRESSING THE WILL OF THE COMMITTEE. I DON'T KNOW THAT I SUPPORT THIS.

I UNDERSTAND THE REASONING BEHIND IT.

BUT I DON'T KNOW THAT NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME TO GO FORWARD WITH IT.

I'M LOOKING AT WAYS TO ALLEVIATE THE BURDEN ON THE CITIZENS RIGHT NOW AS OPPOSED TO ADDING ADDITIONAL LAW. SO THAT'S IT.

I'M PROBABLY 8-1 ON THAT AND THAT'S OK.

BUT THOSE ARE MY THOUGHTS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. OK, THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS? YEAH, I THINK, THANK YOU, MAYOR.

[INAUDIBLE] I SUPPORT THE PROPOSED ORDINANCE, I THINK THAT MR. BETTS HAS ALREADY LAID OUT HE LAID OUT A RESPONSE TO COUNCILMAN AUBIN.

WE WERE LAX, ENFORCEMENT HAS BEEN RELAXED FOR A LONG TIME.

AND THIS ORDINANCE JUST LIKE THE DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM.

THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT ISSUE IN MY DISTRICT.

AND IT IS COMING IN, AT A RESPONSE TO CITIZENS AND RESIDENTS.

THEY'RE THE ONES WHO HAVE RAISED THIS.

THIS IS NOT, AS COUNCIL WE DIDN'T INITIATE.

THEY'RE THE ONES WHO RAISED THIS.

AND THE QUESTION THAT I'VE GOTTEN FROM MOST OF THEM IS NOT SEEKING THAT SOMETHING PUNITIVE BE DONE TO THEIR NEIGHBORS OR FOLKS LIKE THAT.

NUMBER ONE, THEY WANT TO BE SURE THAT COUNCIL WAS AWARE THAT THIS IS BECOMING A PROBLEM.

AND SECONDLY, WHAT ARE WE DOING TO HELP ADDRESS IT? AND I EXPLAINED TO A NUMBER OF THEM THAT IT WAS BEING REVIEWED, LOOKED AT, WASN'T SURE WHAT THE OUTCOME WAS GOING TO BE, THAT COUNCIL WAS AWARE OF IT AND WOULD BE EXAMINING THE ISSUE. SO THAT'S WHY I SUPPORT THIS, I THINK THE WARNING SYSTEM AND MOST OF THE INSTANCES THAT HAVE OCCURRED SO FAR IN THIS DISTRICT, THE WARNINGS HAVE WORKED.

I HAD SOME CASES, TWO CASES JUST LAST WEEK.

AND I KNOW FOR A FACT THE WARNING WORK, BECAUSE I TALKED TO ONE OF THE GENTLEMAN WHO OWNED THE VEHICLE AND THE WARNINGS WERE AND MATTER OF FACT, HE WAS VERY COMPLIMENTARY OF THE MARSHAL AND HOW THE MARSHAL APPROACHED HIM WITH THIS SITUATION.

SO THAT'S WHY I SUPPORT THIS.

I THINK. I THINK IT IS AN APPROPRIATE RESPONSE TO A RISING CONCERN THAT'S BEEN RAISED BY CONSTITUENTS SO THAT THEY KNOW, AT LEAST, IF IN FACT WE NEED TO DO MORE, THAT WE'VE GOT A TOOL TO DO THAT.

SO I SUPPORT THE PROPOSED ORDINANCE.

THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER VERA? THANK YOU, MAYOR. I ALSO SUPPORT THIS BECAUSE IN MY DISTRICT, LIKE OF COUNCILMAN B.J., WE HAVE PROBLEMS.

[01:55:02]

AND PEOPLE, YOU CAN WRITE THEM A WARNING AND YOU CAN WRITE THEM SEVERAL WARNINGS, THEY'RE STILL PARK THE CARS.

AND SOME PEOPLE HAVE BUSINESSES LIKE BUYING CARS AND PUTTING THEM IN THE STREET.

I'VE GOT ONE RIGHT NOW THAT WE'VE BEEN FIGHTING FOR TWO YEARS.

AND THESE ARE THE PROBLEMS THAT WE HAVE, AND NOT ONLY MY DISTRICT, BUT OTHER DISTRICTS GOT THE SAME PROBLEM.

AND I'M FOR IT.

THANK YOU, MAYOR. ALL RIGHT, LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE QUICK, NOPE . COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN? AND YOU'RE STILL MUTED.

MONDAY, IT'S MONDAY MEETINGS.

I'M BACK. I'M VERY CONFLICTED ON THIS BECAUSE I DO KNOW THAT WE HAVE STREETS THAT REALLY ARE PROBLEMATIC WITH THE VOLUME OF CARS, BUT I FEEL THEN THAT THAT'S SOMETHING THAT.

YOU KNOW THAT MAYBE BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE THAT'S ONE PURPOSE OF THIS.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS AMENDMENT TO THE CURRENT ORDINANCE IS TO.

FIND A WAY TO REDUCE THE VOLUME OF CARS PARKED ON STREETS.

I DON'T THINK IT'LL ACTUALLY ACHIEVE THAT.

FOR A COUPLE OF REASONS, BECAUSE I DO THINK YOU'LL GET.

YOU GET PEOPLE JUST SWAPPING WHICH CARS THEY PARK WHERE, YOU KNOW, SO YOUR REGISTERED VEHICLES PARKED HERE, AND YOUR UNREGISTERED VEHICLES PARKED IN YOUR IN YOUR DRIVEWAY OR WHEREVER. BUT WHAT MY CONCERN IS AND I THINK COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH PROBABLY EXPRESSED IT BETTER WHEN WE FIRST STARTED TALKING ABOUT THIS PROGRAM.

WE WERE VERY CLEAR WHAT WE DID AND DID NOT WANT THIS PROGRAM TO BECOME, AND IT WAS NOT TO WALK AROUND NITPICK PEOPLE.

BUT IT WAS TO RESOLVE PARKING ISSUES THAT WERE CAUSING SAFETY PROBLEMS, PEOPLE PARKING TOO CLOSE TO INTERSECTIONS, PEOPLE PARKING ACROSS, NOT JUST IMPINGING A SIDEWALK BY TWO INCHES, BUT ACTUALLY PARKING ACROSS SIDEWALKS.

WE ACTUALLY HAD A VERY LONG DISCUSSION ABOUT WRONG WAY PARKING AND DECIDED THAT WE'D LEAVE THAT TO THE DISCRETION OF THE MARSHALS NOT TO NITPICK PEOPLE AND JUST TICKET EVERYBODY WHO'S PARKED THE WRONG WAY, BUT PEOPLE WHO WERE PARKED ANTI-DIRECTIONAL WHERE IT CAUSED A SAFETY ISSUE.

AND SO I'VE GOT, YOU KNOW, THIS IS A PROBLEM IN SOME OF THE STREETS AND IN MY DISTRICT AS WELL. BUT I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS THE RIGHT TOOL, I SHOULD SAY, OVER PARKING IS A PROBLEM ON SOME OF MY STREETS.

I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS THE RIGHT TOOL TO FIX IT.

AND I JUST I DON'T KNOW THAT I CAN SUPPORT THIS ORDINANCE.

I THINK THAT I WOULD RATHER SEE US HAVE A MUCH MORE DETAILED LOOK AT.

ARE THERE STREETS WHERE WE NEED TO DO, JUST TO CHANGE HOW WE DO PARKING? DO WE NEED TO LOOK AT WHAT WHAT OTHER CITIES HAVE DONE, WHERE THEY DO ALTERNATE STREET PARKING.

ALTERNATE DAY PARKING, WHATEVER IT IS, ON ODD DAYS YOU CAN ONLY PARK IN THE ODD SIDE OF THE STREET. ON EVEN PARK, ON THE EVEN SIDE OF THE STREET.

WHAT ARE THE OTHER THINGS THAT WE CAN DO TO KIND OF START ADDRESSING THE PARKING PROBLEMS AS OPPOSED TO TRYING TO GET TO THE UNDERLYING ISSUE OVER PARKING BY SOME OTHER MEANS? THANK YOU, MAYOR. THANK YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER HEDRICK? THANK YOU, MR. MAYOR. WE LOOKED AT THIS IN THE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE, LIKE COUNCILMAN WILLIAMS SAID, THIS IS AN ISSUE THAT THE CITIZENS HAVE BROUGHT UP. AND OWNING A CAR IS A RESPONSIBILITY, NOT NECESSARILY A RIGHT.

SO AS SUCH, THE OWNER NEEDS TO TAKE PROPER CARE TO REGISTER THEIR VEHICLE PROPERLY.

AND IF THEY'RE HAVING MULTIPLE VEHICLES ON THE STREET THAT ARE UNREGISTERED, THAT ISSUE NEEDS TO BE TAKEN CARE OF. AND THIS, LIKE HAS BEEN SAID, GIVES US ANOTHER TOOL TO HANDLE THAT. I DON'T THINK WE NEED TO DESIGNATE ODD OR EVEN SIDES OF THE STREET.

WE DON'T HAVE PLOWING NECESSARY HERE, ALTHOUGH IN FEBRUARY THAT COULD HAVE BEEN PART OF IT. BUT I WILL BE SUPPORTING THIS AS I DID IN THE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE.

SO THANK YOU. THANK YOU, SIR.

ALL RIGHT, LOOKS LIKE WE'VE CLEARED TO THE QUEUE.

YOU KNOW, I CAN TELL YOU I HAVE GREAT APPRECIATION FOR THE PARKING ENFORCEMENT THAT WE HAVE CREATED OVER THE LAST YEAR OR TWO YEARS, WHATEVER IT IS IN THE DISCUSSIONS.

AND I CAN TELL YOU, I GET I HAVE I HAVE CERTAIN CITIZENS IN THIS CITY

[02:00:07]

WHO CALLED ME, PROBABLY EVERY MONTH, IF NOT MORE THAN THAT, TO REMIND ME ABOUT PARKING ISSUES. I MEAN, IT IS ESPECIALLY IN SOME OF OUR OLDER NEIGHBORHOODS, NARROWER STREETS, SMALLER LOTS, ET CETERA.

AND AS FAR AS YOU KNOW, THIS BEING A CITIZEN DRIVEN SOLUTION, YES, I DO HAVE SOME ISSUES WITH IT BECAUSE I, IT BRINGS UP THE POINT OF WHERE DO WE STOP? AND I CAN CERTAINLY RESPECT THAT.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOU KNOW, BETWEEN THE CALLS THAT I GET, BETWEEN THE COMMENTS THAT I SEE ONLINE, ET CETERA.

STREET PARKING AND SOME OF THE CARS THAT WE SEE AROUND, I WILL BE SUPPORTING THIS.

AND WE'LL HAVE TO SEE WHAT BECOMES OF IT.

I THINK THAT IT WILL IT WILL RESOLVE SOME OF THE PROBLEM LOCATIONS.

BUT DO I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE NECESSARY FOR EVERYONE? I DON'T KNOW. I THINK OUR MARSHALS HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB OF KNOWING.

HOW TO USE THE ORDINANCES, SO I WILL BE SUPPORTING AND I HOPE.

LET'S SEE, COUNCIL MEMBER VERA? THANK YOU, MAYOR. IT'S LIKE MR. BETTS SAID, THE MARSHALS ARE NOT GOING TO BE OUT THERE.

TROLLING THE STREET, GIVING TICKETS TO ANYBODY.

IT'S THE COMPLAINTS THAT WE GET ARE THE ONES THAT ARE GOING TO BE TAKEN CARE OF.

IT'S NOT GOING TO BE LIKE YOU DRIVE IN THROUGH THERE AND YOU GET A TICKET, THAT'S NOT THE WAY [INAUDIBLE] TO WORK.

THAT'S ALL I WANT TO SAY, MAYOR, THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, SIR.

ALL RIGHT, SO OBVIOUSLY, I KNOW THERE IS SOME CONCERN COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH, COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN.

IS, MR. BETTS, IS THIS ORDINANCE READY TO BRING FORWARD FOR ACTUAL CONSIDERATION AT A FUTURE MEETING? YES, IT IS, MAYOR.

WE WOULD COME FORWARD IN TWO WEEKS, OUR NEXT TUESDAY NIGHT COUNCIL MEETING, AND I'LL PRESENT THE ORDINANCE THAT NIGHT.

AND AS I SAID EARLIER, OUR DEPUTIES HAVE EXERCISED, I THINK, REALLY GOOD JUDGMENT AND DISCRETION. AND MOST OF THE TYPES OF VIOLATIONS YOU SEE THIS THIS WOULD NOT BE, AS MR. VERA SAID, WE WOULD NOT I WOULD NOT ANTICIPATE LIKE THE WRONG WAY PARKING.

I DON'T THINK WE'VE WRITTEN PROBABLY ONE OR TWO TICKETS THE ENTIRE TIME.

AND EVERY STREET HAS RUNWAY PARKERS.

I WOULDN'T ANTICIPATE THAT THERE WOULD BE A LOT OF TICKETS ISSUED, BUT IT WOULD GIVE THEM A TOOL IN THE TOOLBOX.

AND WE'RE READY TO BRING IT NEXT TUESDAY.

THANK YOU, SIR.

COUNCIL MEMBER AUBIN. THANK YOU, MAYOR.

QUESTION FOR MR. BETTS, SO IF SOMEBODY WRITES AND COMPLAINS THAT THERE'S AN UNREGISTERED VEHICLE ON THE STREET THAT'S OUT OF THREE MONTHS REGISTRATION, ARE YOU SAYING YOU MAY OR MAY NOT WRITE THEM A TICKET OR THEY ARE GOING TO GET A TICKET? I THINK MORE LIKELY THAN NOT, THEY'LL GO OUT, THE DEPUTIES WILL GO OUT AND PUT A WARNING ON THE CAR AND GO BACK IN SEVERAL WEEKS AND SEE IF THEY'VE REMEDIED THE SITUATION.

AND I, THE INSTRUCTION THAT I WILL GIVE OUR DEPUTIES IS TO FOCUS ON THOSE PLACES WHERE PEOPLE ARE STORING CARS ON THE STREET FOR REPAIR, WHERE THEY HAVE FIVE OR SIX OF THEM PARKED IN THE SAME PLACE FOR THREE OR FOUR OF THEM ON THE SAME STREET FROM THE SAME HOUSEHOLD. I WOULDN'T EXPECT THAT THEY WOULD BE WRITING A TICKET FOR A SINGLE ISOLATED REGISTRATION THAT WAS OUT FOR 90 DAYS.

I WOULD EXPECT THAT THEY WOULD USE THIS TOOL WHERE YOU HAD SOMEBODY WHO IS ACTUALLY OPERATING A BUSINESS AND WE HAVE NO WAY TO GET THEM TO STOP OPERATING A BUSINESS BECAUSE IT'S VERY HARD TO PROVE. WELL, OK, WHENEVER WE PUSH THIS OUT, THEN WE'RE GOING HAVE TO MAKE THAT VERY CLEAR TO THE RESIDENTS, BECAUSE I HAVE RESIDENTS.

I HAD ONE WHO, YOU KNOW, A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO WENT OUT AND OVER A WEEKEND REPORTED, JUST WALKED THE STREETS AND REPORTED 20 CARS THAT HAD EXPIRED REGISTRATIONS, AND THEN COMPLAINED THAT WE HADN'T DONE SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

AND SO, YOU KNOW, JUST SO ALL COUNCIL KNOWS, IF WE'RE NOT, WE ALL HAVE PEOPLE IN OUR DISTRICT TO EITHER DO THAT KIND OF THING.

AND SO WE'RE GOING TO RUN INTO THAT.

AND I SAID, YOU KNOW, I'M JUST SAYING THAT I ALSO SUSPECT

[02:05:01]

THE TIME BETWEEN THE CITATION AND WHEN THEY ACTUALLY HAVE TO HAVE THEIR HEARING IS A PRETTY LONG TIME. IT'S LIKE SIX WEEKS SO THAT WE DON'T RUN INTO THE PROBLEM.

PEOPLE NOT KNOWING THEY GOT A TICKET BECAUSE IT'S AFTER THE MAIL GETS TO THEM AND THEY HAVE LIKE SIX WEEKS. AND I SUSPECT THAT THE HEARING EXAMINER, LIKE THE JUDGE AT THE COURT, IF YOU SHOWED UP AND SHOWED THAT THE VEHICLE HAD BEEN REGISTERED SIX WEEKS LATER, THAT THE HEARING EXAMINER WOULD DISMISS THOSE CITATIONS.

AND WHAT MY CONCERN IS LESS ABOUT THOSE PEOPLE.

I MEAN, THE POINT THAT I'M MAKING IS THAT.

YOU KNOW, IF WE'RE NOT WRITING TICKETS TO THESE FOLKS, I'M DEFINITELY GOING TO HEAR COMPLAINTS THAT WE'RE NOT SUFFICIENTLY INFORMED AND YOU GET THAT ALL THE TIME.

[INAUDIBLE] YOU HAVE, YOU PUT A RULE ON THE BOOKS.

AND TO A CERTAIN DEGREE, ONCE IT'S ON THE BOOKS, YOU LOSE CONTROL OVER IT.

YOU GET BEAT UP FOR NOT ENFORCING IT.

WHY ISN'T THIS PERSON, WHY AREN'T WE WRITING THIS TICKET OR THAT TICKET AND THEN THEN HAVING JUST SO EVERYBODY KNOWS, THEN YOU'LL HAVE TO MAKE THE [INAUDIBLE].

WELL, WE REALLY ONLY HAVE THAT LAW ON THE BOOKS FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE BASICALLY RUNNING A BUSINESS. SO.

WE GET THAT NOW WITH THE WRONG WAY PARKED CARS AND THE CARS THAT ARE PARKED TWO OR THREE INCHES OVER ON THE SIDEWALK.

WE GO OUT AND LOOK AT THEM AND REALIZE THAT IT'S JUST BARELY INTO THE SIDEWALK AND THEY DON'T WANT TO TAKE IT. AND WE GET COMPLAINTS.

AND THAT SAYS THE MARSHAL CAME OUT AND DIDN'T DO ANYTHING.

BUT I EXPECT THEM TO EXERCISE THE TYPE OF DISCRETION THAT I KNOW THE COUNCIL WANTS THE DEPUTIES TO EXPECT TO EXERCISE.

OK, THANK YOU. THANK YOU, MR. BETTS. OK, ALL RIGHT, SO WITH THIS ONE, MR. BETTS WILL BRING THIS FORWARD FOR FORMAL CONSIDERATION AT THE I BELIEVE IT'S MAY 17TH OR 18TH MEETING AND WE CAN FURTHER DISCUSS IT AT THAT TIME AND VOTE ACCORDINGLY.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU, SIR, AND THANK YOU TO THE COMMITTEE.

NEXT IS ITEM 4E, 2021-22 DISCUSSION OF THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT HOME INFILL

[4E. 2021-2022 Discussion of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Infill Partnership Grant (HOME) and Emergency Solutions Grant Allocations Grant (ESG) Allocations]

PARTNERSHIP GRANT AND EMERGENCY SOLUTIONS GRANT ALLOCATIONS.

THANK YOU, MAYOR AND COUNCIL, LET ME SHARE MY SCREEN, WE HAVE, I HAVE A VERY SHORT PRESENTATION.

ALL RIGHT. TONIGHT, CAN EVERYONE SEE THAT? YES, MA'AM, GO AHEAD. ALL RIGHT.

TONIGHT, WE'RE HERE FOR A CONTINUED DISCUSSION REGARDING OUR CDBG HOME AND ESG.

GRANT PROGRAM ALLOCATIONS.

DURING OUR LAST COUNCIL MEETING ON APRIL 19TH, COUNCIL GAVE STAFF DIRECTION AS TO HOW THEY WANTED TO ALLOCATE THE PUBLIC SERVICES.

AND WE HAVE BROUGHT THOSE FORWARD TONIGHT JUST TO REMIND.

COUNCIL. THIS ITEM IS ALSO SCHEDULED FOR FORMAL APPROVAL TOMORROW UNLESS COUNCIL DIRECTS US TO DO OTHERWISE.

AND BASED ON COUNCIL'S RECOMMENDATION FROM THE LAST STAFF MEETING, THESE ARE THE NEW ALLOCATIONS FOR THE PUBLIC SERVICES.

I DID HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH THE RESTORATION CHURCH WITH PASTOR SHEPHERD, AND HE ASKED THAT WE MOVE FORWARD WITH THE SUMMER YOUTH CAMP PROGRAM INSTEAD OF THE MOTEL VOUCHER PROGRAM. SO I INCLUDED THAT FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS ON THIS ALLOCATION LIST AS WELL.

AND I'LL JUST GO THROUGH THESE QUICKLY.

THE BOXING PROGRAM, AFTER THE REVISIONS WERE MADE, IT COMES OUT TO TWENTY SEVEN THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED TWENTY ONE.

THE ELDERLY YARD CARE PROGRAM COMES OUT TO TWENTY TWO THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED SIXTY SIX.

THE GARLAND PARK STARS PROGRAM COMES TO THIRTY THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED FIFTY SEVEN.

THE ACHIEVEMENT CENTER OF TEXAS COMES TO FIFTY SEVEN THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED SEVEN.

HOPE CLINIC IS EIGHTY THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN DOLLARS.

HOPE'S DOOR NEW BEGINNING IS THIRTY THREE THOUSAND THREE HUNDRED SEVENTY SIX.

THE COUNSELING INSTITUTE COMES TO SIXTEEN THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY THREE.

THE MEALS ON WHEELS PROGRAM IS TEN THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED AND FIFTY DOLLARS.

SALVATION ARMY RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM IS TWENTY EIGHT THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED SIXTY DOLLARS. THE GARLAND SENIOR OMBUDSMAN PROGRAM IS SIXTEEN THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED ELEVEN AND THE NEW PROGRAM, THE SUMMER YOUTH CAMP RESTORATION CHURCH, IS FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS.

AND THAT BRINGS US TO A TOTAL OF THREE HUNDRED TWENTY EIGHT THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED THIRTY NINE DOLLARS FOR THE PUBLIC SERVICES, WHICH IS THE MAXIMUM WE CAN ALLOCATE.

AND WITH THAT, DID ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR NEED TO SEE ANY OF THE PREVIOUS SCREENS? SO FAR, I HAVE NO ONE IN THE QUEUE, BUT AS SOON AS I SAY THAT AND AS SOON AS YOU BRING YOUR PRESENTATION DOWN, SOMEBODY WILL BE IN THE QUEUE AND THEY'LL WANT TO SEE THE PRESENTATION. SO LET'S TAKE OUR CHANCES AND GO AHEAD AND UNSHARE YOUR SCREEN.

[02:10:01]

ALL RIGHT. ALL RIGHT.

WELL, I'M GLAD WE WERE ABLE TO REACH OUT TO RESTORATION AND SEE HOW THEY FELT.

THEY COULD BEST USE THE FUNDS.

AND I WILL HONESTLY, YOU KNOW, THESE OTHER PROGRAMS ARE HAVE BEEN ONGOING FOR SOME OF THEM DECADES. I WILL BE VERY INTERESTED TO SEE WHAT RESTORATION DOES WITH THIS AND HOW THEY CAN GROW IT IN NEXT YEAR'S ALLOCATION.

SO I CERTAINLY WILL WANT TO KNOW THAT COUNCIL.

ANY QUESTIONS ON THIS AS TO THE ADJUSTED TOTALS THAT YOU JUST SAW? MAYOR, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU TO COUNCIL MEMBER HEDRICK FOR SHOWING HIS WORK THAT IT WAS A LIFESAVER.

THANK YOU FOR SUBMITTING IT.

VERY GOOD.

ALL RIGHT. WELL, THIS WILL BE UP FOR CONSIDERATION TOMORROW.

COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS, ARE YOU IN THE QUEUE? IS THERE IS CONCERN THERE THAT SHE FORGOT TO MENTION COUNCILOR SMITH'S SLIDE RULE? I THINK HE IS INSTRUMENTAL ALSO.

THAT'S TRUE, I FORGOT.

YES, I THINK HE DID USE A SLIDE RULE AS PART OF THIS, ALONG WITH.

BUT HE WAS UPSTAGED BY COUNCILMAN HEDRICK.

ALL RIGHT. VERY GOOD.

ALL RIGHT. THIS WILL BE UP FOR FORMAL CONSIDERATION TOMORROW NIGHT.

THANK YOU, MONA. THANK YOU.

AND THAT WILL BRING US TO ITEM FIVE, ANNOUNCE FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS.

[5. Announce Future Agenda Items]

ANYBODY HAVE ANY FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS FOR THIS EVENING? COUNCIL MEMBER WILLIAMS? YES, THANK YOU, MAYOR, AS A FUTURE ITEM.

I WOULD LIKE FOR COUNCIL TO AND PROBABLY WITH COUNCILMAN AUBIN SAID TO GET A BRIEFING TXDOT ON THE 635 EAST PROJECT.

THIS IS INFORMATION SEVERAL PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME ABOUT IT, WHERE IT IS, AND I DON'T KNOW WHEN THE LAST TIME THIS COUNCIL GOT JUST A VERY BRIEF SETTLEMENT UPDATE.

FROM TXDOT ON, SINCE THE DIRT'S REALLY FLYING OUT THERE, I'D LIKE TO GET TO GET SOME KIND OF AN UPDATE FROM TXDOT, JUST AN UPDATE INFORMATION UPDATE ON THE PROJECT FOR COUNCIL.

OK, SO BASICALLY A STATUS UPDATE ON.

YES. SO FAR, OK.

YES. ALL RIGHT.

AND ALSO, I DON'T KNOW IF I HAVEN'T SEEN THE SECOND, OH THERE.

COUNCIL MEMBER MCNEAL SECOND ON THAT.

SO IF WE COULD SCHEDULE THAT.

ALL RIGHT. ANYTHING ELSE, SIR? NO, THAT'S IT, THANKS, MAYOR.

OK. COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH? THANK YOU, MAYOR. AND THIS IS A REAL SMALL ONE FOR PUBLIC SAFETY.

WE HAD AN ISSUE WHERE OUR PARKING WAS BEING ENFORCED ON A STREET THAT WAS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION. AND I'D LIKE FOR THE PUBLIC SAFETY ISSUE OR THE PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE TO CONSIDER CHANGES TO OUR PARKING ORDINANCES WHERE PEOPLE ARE HAVING TO PARK ABNORMALLY BECAUSE THE STREET'S BEEN TORN UP.

OK. WE HAVE A SECOND ON THAT ONE.

ALL RIGHT, DEPUTY MAYOR PRO TEM MORRIS SECOND ON THAT ONE.

ALL RIGHT. ANYTHING ELSE, SIR? OR ANYONE ELSE? ALL RIGHT.

OBVIOUSLY, IF YOU HAVE A FUTURE AGENDA ITEM AND IT COMES UP BETWEEN NOW AND OUR NEXT MEETING, OBVIOUSLY THERE IS ALREADY A PROCESS FOR BRINGING THOSE ITEMS FORWARD.

AND THAT WILL BRING US TO ITEM SIX, COUNCIL WILL MOVE INTO EXECUTIVE SESSION, THE CITY

[6. Council will move into Executive Session]

COUNCIL WILL ADJOURN INTO EXECUTIVE SESSION PURSUANT TO SECTIONS 551.072 AND 551.071 OF THE TEXAS GOVERNMENT CODE TO DELIBERATE OR DISCUSS THE PURCHASE EXCHANGE, LEASE OR VALUE OF THE TRACT OF REAL PROPERTY AND IMPROVEMENTS LOCATED IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA IN MATTERS CONCERNING PRIVILEGED AND UNPRIVILEGED CLIENT INFORMATION DEEMED CONFIDENTIAL BY RULE 1.05 OF THE TEXAS DISCIPLINARY RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT IN REGARD TO THE PURCHASE OF THE AFOREMENTIONED LAND AND RELATED ZONING AND LAND USE MATTERS.

COUNCIL, I KNOW WE JUST WE JUST HAD A PRETTY GOOD RECESS.

IF WE COULD HAVE EVERYBODY BACK IN THE EXECUTIVE SESSION AT 8:40, THAT GIVES US TIME TO KIND OF CLEAR OUT AND THEN GET EVERYBODY BACK IN.

AND HOPEFULLY EVERYBODY GOT THE ZOOM LINK.

I KNOW WE HAD SOME ISSUES WITH THAT THIS AFTERNOON, SO IF EVERYBODY COULD BE BACK ON THE EXECUTIVE SESSION AT 8:40, PLEASE.

THANK YOU.
