ITEM 4.10 WAS CONTINUED TO THE FEBRUARY 24, 2014 CITY COUNCIL MEETING.
Item 4.02 Adoption of an ordinance adding Chapter 12.65 of Title 12 of the Municipal Code establishing a camping policy.
In response to questions by Mayor Marchand, City Manager Marc Roberts said as a normal course of business, after adoption of an ordinance staff prepared implementation guidelines and procedures. He said the goal was to obtain compliance and enforce the ordinance in a compassionate fashion. He said enforcement would be complaint driven; staff would not actively pursue enforcement. He outlined enforcement steps that included contacting the camper and advising them of the prohibition and available services, providing the notice to comply, removal of the encampment, and the storage of personal belongings. Mr. Roberts said in the tri-valley, the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District, along with the cities of Dublin, Pleasanton, San Ramon, and the Town of Danville all had ordinances prohibiting camping, treating campers as an infraction with usual statutory fines of $100, $200 and $500 for the first, second and third infractions. Livermores ordinance was different, treating the item as an infraction with each of the fines at $100 rather than escalating to $200 and $500. In addition, after multiple infractions a violation could also be treated as a misdemeanor, reserved for willful folks who repeatedly did not comply. For those cases, Livermores ordinance offered the ability to enforce with a $300 misdemeanor penalty rather than the usual $1,000 penalty like the neighboring cities and LARPD. He said Livermore was bringing its regulations into line with the rest of the tri-valley; however, with more compassionate enforcement.
Mr. Roberts said in Livermore, less than five percent of neighborhood preservation ordinances actually got cited. The only citations issued were to those who repeatedly and willfully choose not to comply. The Citys compliance officers worked with residents if they were trying to comply, needed additional time to comply, or needed additional information to comply. He said the objective was to get compliance.
Mr. Roberts reviewed available services that included shelters and homeless refuges stating there were up to 146 beds available during the winter months. He said combined total shelter beds in Dublin, Pleasanton, San Ramon and Danville was zero. He said the City of Livermore took the provision of services seriously; the city cooperated and gave grants to many of the groups and supported a number of programs.
Mr. Roberts said the ordinance was one tool to make certain there were not unsafe conditions and negative impacts to neighbors. The ordinance was not meant to be the entire answer in the situation. The City had a number of programs and a long history of providing services to meet the needs of the community.
In response to questions by Mayor Marchand, Mr. Roberts said the Livermore Area Recreation and Park District (LARPD) ordinance allowed LARPD staff to immediately cite campers with a fine of $100, $200 or $500.
In response to questions by CM Turner, Mr. Roberts said a grace period would be defined in the implementing polices that would be established after adoption of the ordinance. He said there were no beds in the tri-valley for single men; 30 beds of the 146 were winter beds. He said he was not aware of services for a homeless, single, male veteran.
Mayor Marchand invited public comment.
Mickey Kundert, Livermore, questioned the purpose for establishing a camping ordinance.
Sally Bystroff, Livermore, said the ordinance would not solve the homeless problem.
Ken Bradley, Livermore, said there should be a program to help the homeless to get out of homelessness.
Jacky Poulsen, Livermore, said the ordinance only moved campers from one illegal location to another. She said the decision should be tabled for a few weeks to give the community an opportunity to better understand and offer suggestions.
Kathy Woofter, Livermore, spoke regarding the establishment of a coalition of service groups to assemble and provide homeless services from one location.
Maureen Hamm, Livermore, said the ordinance seemed to be on the fast track and there were already several ordinances that could be used for enforcement.
Mercedes Phillips, Livermore, spoke regarding the lack of a City policy of providing services to the homeless, contributing to the rise of encampments in the arroyo and the need for a housing first strategy. She said adoption of the ordinance should be postponed until after the homeless summit.
Sean Sowell, Pleasanton, said the camping ordinance was illegal, immoral and offensive and did nothing to address the problem of homelessness in the tri-valley.
Chris Wilson, Livermore, read from several articles stating the cost to provide housing to the homeless was much cheaper than to incarcerate or provide emergency room services for the homeless.
Claire Nelson, Livermore, said adoption of the ordinance should be delayed until there could be more discussions on how to resolve the homeless problem.
Joe Duarte, Livermore, agreed with the comments made by prior speakers. He questioned what the City was doing to help the homeless.
Nick Tynan, Livermore, said solutions to homelessness should have been established prior to the adoption of the ordinance. He said policing would not solve the homeless problem.
Norman Baily, Livermore, said the ordinance criminalized being homeless and did nothing to address the problems of the homeless.
Michael Duncan, Livermore, spoke in support of the ordinance.
Lori Pavich, Livermore, said the City did not need an urban camping ban to arrest people when there are already ordinances for illegal activities, and supported delaying adoption of the ordinance. She offered several suggestions including LARPD opening the restrooms for public use.
Katherine Dunn, Livermore, said the ordinance should be amended with specific details on the enforcement process. She said the adoption of the ordinance should be postponed.
Paul Brown, Livermore, said adoption of the ordinance should be delayed until there was more public input.
Lora Ashworth, Livermore, said she did not support adoption of the ordinance as it did not provide a solution to homelessness.
Terry McCune, Livermore, said homelessness was a regional problem and the City needed to have a homeless summit. He spoke regarding the arroyo and the problems with trash.
John Stein, Livermore, said the implementation of the ordinance should be tabled for 60-90 days.
There were no more speakers.
In response to questions by Mayor Marchand, Assistant City Attorney Kevin Young said the ordinance was not illegal. Acting City Attorney Jason Alcala stated that personal property such as blankets, sleeping bags and clothing would not be seized from the campers.
In response to questions by CM Gary, Mr. Alcala said any amendment to the ordinance would require the ordinance to be reintroduced followed by a second reading prior to adoption. He said direction for implementation of the ordinance would be a separate action from the ordinance.
In response to questions by VM Woerner, Police Chief Michael Harris said there were many existing laws that could be applied to various situations; however, there were no laws requiring someone to leave a location where they had built an encampment. He said the issues of public urination or defecation were difficult to enforce as the violator had to be viewed or caught in the act. Chief Harris said police frequently responded to calls from citizens of Livermore reporting the encampments and the problems being caused. He said the ordinance would provide an opportunity for the City to collaborate with the service providing groups.
VM Woerner said homelessness was a regional issue; having the ordinance would be helpful for the City to be on par with the other jurisdictions. Mr. Roberts said it would be helpful for the City to have the outreach and services across the different jurisdictions. He said adoption of the ordinance would not magically solve the problem but having a regional approach would be important to make progress.
In response to questions by CM Turner, Mr. Roberts said the implementation policy for an ordinance of this type was not created until adoption of the ordinance. He said Neighborhood Preservation staff would prepare the written regulations during the 30-day period before the ordinance became effective. He said it would be possible for a future Council to change the policy in addition to a future staff to interpret the rules differently within the limits of the law.
Mr. Roberts said it had not been the practice of the City Council to detail implementation policies with nuisance and infraction items. He said standard City policy was that people were notified of the infraction, given a period of time to cure, and the cure happened.
In response to questions by VM Woerner, Mr. Roberts said traditionally implementation policies did not return for Council review or approval.
Mayor Marchand thanked the community for their input and assured them there would be a summit on homelessness. He said at the last summit three years ago there was a discussion about local resources. Livermore was the only city providing services in the tri-valley and this would not solve the problem. He spoke about the Community Development Block Grant funds that helped to support many of the service-providing organizations in the City. He said 10-40% of the homeless were veterans and there were no beds for veterans in Alameda County. He said he was having conversations with the Veterans Administration to repurpose the soon to be closed VA Hospital as transitional housing for returning veterans, homeless veterans, and a PTSD treatment center, and had invited them to participate in the summit. He said the Housing First model was wonderful, but it would cost the City $4 million annually. He spoke regarding USIC (United States Interagency Commission) and said homelessness was a regional, state, and national issue. He said the City was receiving an increased number of complaints from residents about the encampments throughout the City, not just the arroyo, that were littered with trash and excrement causing compelling public health and safety problems.
Mayor Marchand said that he listens to all members of the community and he had received complaints from a lot of the residents. He said the City needed to adopt the ordinance because without it, the City did not have the ability to abate the public health and safety issues. He said this would be an additional tool to help the City work on solutions to the regional homelessness issue. He said the City had done a great job of sustaining the homeless in the City; so great that the homeless population increased tenfold. He said the community needed to work on solutions to lift people out of homelessness.
Mayor Marchand requested that there be a delay in the issuance of any citations until after the summit. If complaints from the community stopped, the City would know there was compliance with the ordinance. Unless there were complaints, there would not be postings. If people moved, abated the nuisance and the public safety hazards, there would be no citations. He invited the community to volunteer and participate in the summit.
VM Woerner said the City needed the tool to become consistent with the other tri-valley jurisdictions. He said the ordinance was not the solution but one aspect to deal with serious situations. The City received complaints and the police had had to act. He said the Council needed to be more involved and he volunteered to be on a subcommittee to find solutions. He said it was very important to get complete data to understand the spectrum of the issues. There was just not one solution or one tool. He said there was a lot of energy in the community to deal with this regional issue. He said the summit needed to be creative to find solutions and should come up with some game changing ideas.
CM Turner said she would not support the ordinance until after the summit. She said people had been camping in the arroyo for years and the City had the ability to delay voting on the ordinance until after the summit. She said compliance required the homeless to move, but to where; there was no place for the homeless to move to. She said it would be impossible for the homeless to comply. She supported giving the Police the support needed for public safety and in providing latrines, but adoption of the ordinance should be postponed until after the summit.
IT WAS MOVED BY CM TURNER TO DELAY VOTING ON THE ADOPTION OF THE ORDINANCE UNTIL AFTER THE SUMMIT ON HOMELESSNESS. THE MOTION DIED FOR LACK OF A SECOND.
CM Horner said adopting the ordinance would not remove any services currently being provided to the homeless; the ordinance was clearly stating that camping in a public arroyo was not an option for public safety. He said there had been a lot of compassion expressed that evening. He said he would be participating in the summit. He suggested the ordinance be adopted and staff be directed that the policies and procedures be explicitly written so that citations would not be issued until after the summit.
CM Gary said the nature of complaints he had received had increased from one camper to four-to-five built up semi-permanent encampments along the arroyo. The City needed a legal remedy to evict the camps, remove them, and try to get them assistance. Waiting to solve the real housing problem was not a solution to the encampments in the arroyo. He said he had received more anecdotal feedback on the item during the last two weeks than on any other item for the past two years hed been on the Council. He said he represented all of Livermore and it was his hope that resources and funding could be directed at this problem. Now was the time for everyone to work together. The City never intended the ordinance to solve anything other than the Citys legal right to stop the semi-permanent, multi-person encampments in biologically or health sensitive areas. He said the ordinance must include the infraction for the small percentage that would not comply.
IT WAS MOVED BY CM GARY TO ADOPT THE ORDINANCE AND DIRECT STAFF TO PREPARE AN IMPLEMENTATION POLICY TO INCLUDE THE CARING, COMPASSIONATE DUE PROCESS STEPS, GUIDELINES TO ABATE, AND THAT ANY CITIATION ISSUED WAS ONLY DONE AS A TOOL OF LAST RESORT WHEN A PERSON REFUSED TO MOVE OR BREAK DOWN THE ENCAMPMENT.
MAYOR MARCHAND REQUESTED THE MOTION BE AMENDED TO INCLUDE DIRECTION THAT NO CITATIONS WILL BE ISSUED PRIOR TO THE SUMMIT ON HOMELESSNESS.
CM GARY AMENDED THE MOTION.
THE MOTION WAS SECONDED BY CM HORNER AND CARRIED ON A 4-1 VOTE (CM TURNER VOTING NO) AND THE FOLLOWING ORDINANCE WAS ADOPTED AND DIRECTION GIVEN TO STAFF:
