Telecommunication Relay Services

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

BASIC CITY COUNCIL MEETING RULES

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Recommendations for Council action:

 

  1. ADOPT the following modifications to the Local Business Preference Program, Small Local Business Program, and Transitional Job Opportunities Program Ordinances:

    1. Combine the Transitional Job Opportunities Program, Small Local Business Program, and Local Business Preference Program ordinances into a single program, to be named the Local Business Preference Program, to ensure a broader application of the Citywide bid preference.

    2. Increase the Transitional Job Opportunities Program contract threshold from $100,000 to $150,000.

    3. Allow local Small Business Enterprises, local Transitional Job Opportunities Program, and local subcontractors additional opportunities to qualify for the Local Business Preference Program, as follows:

      1. In addition to the Local Business Enterprise eight percent preference, if the business submitting a proposal holds a Small Local Business Enterprise certification approved by the Designated Administrative Agency it will receive an additional two percent preference.

      2. If the business submitting a proposal holds a Transitional Job Opportunities Program certification approved by the Designated Administrative Agency, it will receive an additional two percent preference.

      3. If the business submitting the proposal is certified as a Small Local Business and the contract amount is valued at less than $150,000, it will receive a ten percent preference. If the business submitting the proposal is not a local business, however, if it uses subcontractors who hold an Local Business Enterprise certification approved by the Designated Administrative Agency, a Small Local Business certification approved by the Designated Administrative Agency, and/or a Transitional Job Opportunities Program certification approved by the Designated Administrative Agency, it will earn a one percent preference for every ten percent of the cost of the proposed work to be performed by the certified subcontractor up to a maximum of a five percent preference.

      4. Awarding Authorities shall grant up to twelve percent Local Business Preference to Local Businesses.

  2. REQUEST the City Attorney, with the assistance of the Bureau of Contract Administration (BCA) and the Chief Legislative Analyst (CLA), to prepare and present the necessary ordinance(s) to:

    1. Effectuate the proposed changes to: the Transitional Job Opportunities Program, including ensuring that Transitional Job Opportunities Programs are changed from being local to the state, to local to the County, to be consistent with all of the City's other local programs; the Local Business Preference Program; and Small Business Program.

    2. Instruct the BCA and the Economic and Workforce Development Department (EWDD) to explore ways to automate the referral process.

    3. Effectuate any other changes approved by Council.

  3. INSTRUCT the BCA to:

    1. Implement the modifications to the Transitional Job Opportunities Program, Local Business Preference Program, and Small Local Business Program consistent with this action.

    2. Revise certification criteria for the revised Local Business Preference Program which will be included in the rules and regulations that will accompany the implementing ordinance(s) and be promulgated by the BCA.

  4. REQUEST the Board of Public Works and the BCA to conduct a marketing and educational campaign to the public on these revised programs.

  5. INSTRUCT the BCA, with the assistance of the EWDD, to:

    1. Develop revised rules and regulations for the implementation of the First Source Hiring Ordinance.

    2. Conduct training sessions for City employees on the implementation of the revised First Source Hiring Ordinance.

    3. Report to Council in six months with a status report on the implementation of the revised Local Business Preference Program and First Source Hiring Ordinance, including but not limited to the following: successes, challenges, and additional staffing requirements.

    4. Report to Council annually on program outcomes and ways to further enhance these programs, including but not limited to staffing and funding levels required for the new programs.

Fiscal Impact Statement: The CLA reports that this action may have a fiscal impact to the General Fund which cannot be estimated at this time.
