WHEREUPON, a motion was made by Council Member Rich, seconded by Councilman Cleveland to quietly support a modification of ShowCap so that at least the Police Officers can get a hold of information regarding juvenile offenses.

Vice Mayor Donley offered an amendment to the motion if it is acceptable to the maker and seconder, "that we also look at expanding the exceptions to confidentiality as those laws exist today, specifically relating to Section 16.1-309.1 of the Virginia Code which contains exceptions for confidentiality regarding Class I, II, and III felonies when committed by a juvenile, also forcible rape, robbery or burglary related offenses; we potentially might want to consider requesting the Legislative Delegation to expand those classifications to all felonies, so that the exceptions to confidentiality by a Judge once adjudicated if a Judge were to view this in the public's interest can, under current law, make that information available to the public; we ought to consider potentially expanding that to all felonies if committed by a juvenile and adjudicated by the Juvenile and
11


Domestic Court, but also potentially add to that repeat offenders, and that might get to some of Council Member Rich's concerns, but it also works under the confines and the parameters which presently exist in the Virginia Code." If acceptable to the maker and the seconder, Vice Mayor Donley would like to make this as an alternative as well.

This was agreeable to the maker and seconder of the motion and the rest the City Council.)

WITHOUT OBJECTION, City Council deferred this until Saturday, December 17, 1994. The City Attorney will give a verbal report on Saturday regarding possible amendments to Virginia Code 16.1-309.1 which addresses the disclosure, to the public, of certain information pertaining to juveniles who have been adjudicated delinquents.

The City staff concur and already have agreement with CET that the contract will be performance-based; (b) "CET establish and maintain a formal support group after initial lob placement." City staff has reached agreement with CET staff that, during the first six months of the program, before CET students have obtained jobs, staff from the City and CET will review and analyze the best approach to take for supporting graduates, especially those who are AFDC recipients. CET already offers an impressive array of supports for their graduates, so the staffs will determine whether the addition of a formal support group approach will be beneficial once they have had a chance to meet with the students and study their needs; (c) "the ACE be represented in the selection process of hiring the Executive Director." The City staff has reached agreement with CET staff that a panel including one SSAB and one ACE member and City staff will interview applicants and recommend three candidates to CET for the final hiring; and (d) "citizen input be part of the site selection process." CET staff have agreed and are already using a number of local resources, including those recommended by the ACE, and Richard Flaherty, Executive Director of the Economic Development program, for site location and selection; (5) Authorized participation in the Technical Assistance and Training grant from the U. S. Department of Labor that pays the expenses for CET staff to replicate the CET program in Alexandria. The Department of Labor granted $900,000 to CET to open seven new sites throughout the nation. The grant to CET requires that it conduct both on- and off-site training to local entity and CET personnel, select and develop a facility in Alexandria, perform a market analysis and select skills to be trained, develop curricular materials for the selected skill areas, replicate management information systems and reports for the Alexandria site, and monitor site personnel through the period of the agreement. (6) Authorized the City Manager to enter into an agreement with CET that includes the following terms: (a) CET will establish and operate a CET center in Alexandria for Alexandria Job opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS) and Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) clients. The initial contract will be for a three-and-a-half year period, including the start-up phase, (beginning January 1, 1995, and ending June 30, 1998), subject to the City's standard clauses for non-appropriation (i.e., if the City Council does not appropriate monies for this program, the contract is terminated), availability of Federal Funds, and a provision to terminate the contract for cause. In addition, either the City or CET may terminate this agreement with 180 days written notice. As discussed below, staff estimates that contract performance payments for FY 1996, the first full year of operations, will total approximately $1 million. (b) Payments to CET will be based on performance. The first of three equal payments of $2,660 (for the average 30 week course) will be due after 10 days of assessment and enrollment (i.e., there is no payment due for students who drop out during the first 10 days of enrollment), a second payment will be due after completion of training, and a final payment will be due when the student has been employed for at least 90 consecutive days after placement. (c) CET agrees: (1) to qualify to receive Pell grant revenues at the earliest possible time (staff estimates that Pell grants, which provide federal assistance, based on need, to students in paying for post-secondary education, will average approximately $1,600 per eligible student); and (2) to actively pursue such grant revenues on behalf of its eligible students. The City's second performance payment will be reduced by an amount equal to 50% of Pell grant revenues
13

for each eligible student (the remaining 50% will be used by the student to defray transportation and other training-related expenses). (d) The City's first payment to CET will be in the amount of $300,000 to fund necessary start-up costs, including equipment acquisition, building lease payments, and staff salaries during the initial start-up period (from January 1, 1995, through June 30, 1995). This $300,000 payment will be offset by crediting this advance by $500 for each of the first 600 students referred by the City, who complete the initial assessment and enrollment period. In the event that the entire advance has not been credited by July 1, 1998, any remaining unreduced balance shall be due from CET at that time (except that the unreduced balance shall not be due in the event that Federal funding is terminated or City Council does not appropriate monies for this program). In the event that this $300,000 advance cannot be entirely accommodated within the Human Services budget, we will return to City Council in the fourth quarter of the fiscal year to recommend an additional appropriation from General Fund balance; (e) CET agrees to provide reports at times and in a manner prescribed by the City. Reports will include: (1) data sufficient to evaluate CET performance in training and placing students (e.g., client demographic data, client progress in training, job placement and retention and follow-up data) ; and (2) documentation to support monthly invoices (e.g., Pell grant receipts and number of students meeting performance payment thresholds); (7) Approved the reallocation of up to $100,000 in budgeted Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) monies in FY 1995 to fund performance payments for students who may be enrolled before the end of the current fiscal year; (8) Approved the following plan to fund CET operations in FY 1996 (the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1995, and ending June 30, 1996), which are estimated to total approximately $1 million: (a) $100,000 in federal Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) monies currently budgeted in the Department of Human Services, which may be reallocated to purchase training for economically disadvantaged clients; (b) $450,000 in federal Job Opportunities and Basic Skills (JOBS) monies,, which the City must match on a one-to-one basis; and (c) $450,000 in Level IV Supplemental AFDC monies, which would be reallocated, in accordance with the recommendation of the SSAB, to provide the City's local match for federal JOBS monies. Funding for future years is anticipated to be at comparable levels with a standard inflation adjustment in FY 1997 and FY 1998. Full funding of this program is contingent on continued federal aid; and (9) Authorized the City Manager to execute all appropriate documents that may be required. The voting was as follows:

Staff is to see that the public is made aware of this pending construction.

WHEREUPON, upon motion by Councilwoman Pepper, seconded by Vice Mayor Donley and carried unanimously, City Council authorized the City Manager to: (1) award the construction repair and rehabilitation contract for the Duke Street Bridge project to the lowest responsive and responsible bidder, Corman Construction Company, in the amount of $3,702,102; (2) authorize a 10% construction contingency budget for the project, in the amount of $387,218; (3) approve the extension of the existing professional services agreement with URS Consultants, Inc., (the current engineers for this project) for engineering inspection services during construction of the project, in the amount of $170,075; and (4) execute all agreements and contract documents associated with this project, once the project is considered and approved by the Commonwealth Transportation Board at its meeting on December 15, 1994.
15


It is important to note that the total cost of this essential bridge repair project will be split between the State, which pays a 98% share of the cost, and the City, which pays a 2% share of the cost. The City's 2% share, in the amount of $93,834, has already been paid during the pre-engineering and design phase, and all remaining project costs will be reimbursed by the State.

21. Consideration of City-wide Lighting Report.

(A copy of the revised recommendations of the City Manager dated December 13, 1994, is on file in the office of the City Clerk and Clerk of Council, marked Exhibit No. 1 of Item No. 21; 12/13/94, and is incorporated herewith as part of this record by reference.

A copy of the City Manager's memorandum dated December 9, 1994, is on file in the office of the City Clerk and Clerk of Council, marked Exhibit No. 2 of Item No. 21; 12/13/94, and is incorporated herewith as part of this record by reference.)

The City Manager and Mayor Ticer participated in the discussion.)

WHEREUPON, upon motion by Councilwoman Pepper, seconded simultaneously by Council Member Walker and Councilman Cleveland and carried unanimously, City Council approved the revised recommendation of the City Manager and (I) took the following actions regarding the street lighting in Lynhaven: (a) approved in concept the plan for upgrading and enhancing the street lighting in Lynhaven to make the neighborhood safer for citizens and police officers as outlined below: (b) referred the lighting plan to the Lynhaven Civic Association for comment at its January 9 meeting; (c) requested Virginia Power to begin preparing its cost estimate for the lighting changes; and (d) requested staff to return to Council with a final report on the Lynhaven lighting proposal at the January 24 legislative session.
16


The lighting plan that was developed by staff for the Lynhaven neighborhood has been amended as a result of input from the leadership of the civic association. Several locations for new lights and upgrading lights have been added, and the number of blocks that would have lighting increased from 8,000 to 14,000 lumens has been reduced. Since the members of the civic association have not had the opportunity to review the details of either proposal, I am recommending that Council refer this plan to the civic association for their comments at their January meeting.

The revised plan is as follows: (1) trimming of trees that are interfering with the illumination by existing street lights as identified by City staff (The list of trees to be trimmed will be shared with the civic association at its January 9 meeting.); (2) requesting Virginia Power to prepare a street light relamping schedule for the Lynhaven neighborhood in order to insure that the existing street light luminaries (the light components of the fixtures) are replaced before they reach the end of their useful life, so that each street light is operating at its full output. (Included in this relamping will be the 100 and 200 blocks of Lynhaven Drive, the 200 and 300 blocks of Wesmond Drive and the 3500 block of Wilson Avenue, where the existing 8,000 lumen sodium vapor lights would be relamped but the lights would continue to be 8,000 lumens); and (3) replacing the existing 5,000 and 8,000 lumen street light fixtures with 14,000 lumen light fixtures of the same design in the blocks and at the intersections listed below to provide better lighting in locations where Police have had to address nuisance and criminal activity: Intersections: Montrose Avenue and Wesmond Drive; Evans Lane and Montrose Avenue; and Evans Lane and Lynhaven Drive. Blocks: unit and 100 block of East Reed Avenue; and l00 block of Evans Lane; (4) requesting the civic association for input on the most desirable location for adding a light fixture to an existing pole to provide light at Lynhaven Park, where the tot lot is located at the intersection of Wilson Avenue and East Reed Avenue. (There was a light near the park that was removed a number of years ago, and additional neighborhood input will assist staff in determining the best location for a light.); (5) adding lighting in the small parking lot located adjacent to City land at the end of the 200 block of Lynhaven Drive; (6) extending the street light pole arm and increasing the level of lighting on the pole located in the alley between Lynhaven Drive and Montrose; (7) considering increasing the level of lighting in the other alleys in cases where the current lights are 5,500 lumens; and (8) adding a light to the existing pole in the 3300 block of Montrose.

(II) Received the Street Lighting Report from Chief Samarra and referred it to the affected civic associations and City staff for review. Staff will return to Council with the fiscal impact of these proposed improvements during the FY 1996 budget discussions. The voting was as follows:

Pepper "aye" Ticer "aye"
Walker "aye" Donley "aye"
