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.

ITEM NO.(4)
17-0226-S1

PLANNING AND LAND USE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE REPORT relative to penalties imposed for unpermitted remodels, additions, and demolition of buildings and structures.

 

Recommendations for Council action, as initiated by Motion (O'Farrell - Koretz - Ryu):

 

  1. ADOPT enhanced non-monetary penalties effectuated by the Cities of Pleasanton and Glendale, requiring that a replacement project not exceed the height, square footage, and footprint of the demolished structure, which would serve as an effective deterrent to unpermitted demolition, as follows:

    1. The City of Pleasanton's proposed ordinance allows for a fine to be imposed based on the appraised value of the building before demolition, or the replacement value of the demolished building; and, states that new or replacement development needs to be no larger than the demolished historic building by square footage, floor area ratio, height, and location, with this development restriction in place for 20 years.

    2. The City of Glendale prohibits the issuance of new construction permits for three years from the date of demolition.

    3. The City of Glendale's Demolition Deterrence Ordinance also contains affirmative maintenance of lot provisions as property maintenance requirements.

    4. The City of Glendale requires in-kind reconstruction of destroyed or deteriorated features of a building that is illegally demolished, or demolished by through demolition by neglect.

    5. The City of Glendale requires new structures to maintain the footprint, height, and square footage of demolished structures.

  2. ADOPT increased fines via civil penalties tied to a property's fair market value, as adopted by the Cities of New York and San Antonio, as follows:

    1. The City of New York's Landmarks Preservation Law imposes a civil penalty for unpermitted demolition in the amount of up to the fair market value of the improvement parcel, with or without the improvement.

    2. The City of San Antonio levies a fine for unpermitted demolition in the amount of 90 percent of the fair market value of the cost of replacement or repair of such building, object, or structure; such fines collected are to be used for the benefit, rehabilitation, or acquisition of local historic resources.

    3. The City of San Antonio considers demolition by neglect as a civil offense and imposes penalties of $1,000 per day.

  3. CONSIDER a future Motion seeking a report back to the Council on the feasibility of directing the Department of City Planning (DCP), Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety (LADBS), and the City Attorney to develop amendments to the Los Angeles Municipal Code and the Cultural Heritage Ordinance to ensure that stronger deterrent and enforcement mechanisms are codified; and, that property owners are duly notified of the changes to help safeguard the City's historical resources.

  4. REQUEST the City Attorney to prepare and present an Ordinance, with the assistance of the LADBS, if new fines are recommended to be added, or existing fees are increased.

  5. INSTRUCT the LADBS, in coordination with the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) and the DCP, to prepare any necessary fee study and conduct public hearings.

  6. DIRECT the LADBS, in coordination with the HCIDLA and DCP, to add protected housing units, such as Rent Stabilization Ordinance, covenanted affordable housing, etc., to the types of buildings that will be subject to the additional penalties set forth in the policy; and, INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to join the effort and work with the existing City departments on the matter.

  7. DIRECT the LADBS, in coordination with the DCP and the City Attorney, to draft ordinance language that would enhance non-monetary penalties for unpermitted demolition by requiring the replacement project to maintain the footprint, height, and square footage of demolished structures; for properties whose zoning designations allow for multi-family housing, property owners may exceed the footprint and size of the demolished structure, up to the existing zoning capacity, if they set aside a mandatory percentage of new units for covenanted affordable housing, or pay an in-lieu fee for affordable housing.

  8. DIRECT the HCIDLA, in coordination with the LADBS, DCP, and the City Attorney, to conduct an analysis on the tipping point for the affordable housing requirement, setting the percentage to exceed any affordable unit requirements from other housing programs, including the Transit Oriented Communities Guidelines, or Density Bonus, while ensuring that a replacement project is not rendered economically infeasible.

 

Fiscal Impact Statement: None submitted by the LADBS. Neither the City Administrative Officer nor the Chief Legislative Analyst has completed a financial analysis of this report.

AD HOC ON COVID-19 RECOVERY AND NEIGHBORHOOD INVESTMENT COMMITTEE REPORT relative to a strategy for equitable distribution of vaccines, prioritizing low-income communities and essential workers, and information on the Governor's vaccine budget proposal which should include a public outreach campaign. 

 

Recommendations for Council action, SUBJECT TO THE APPROVAL OF THE MAYOR:

 

  1. APPROVE the use of $400,000 from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Community Development Block Grant funds (CDBG-CV) to initiate a public awareness campaign focusing on low-income, high risk communities that will promote vaccine acceptance and other established health practices to reduce the transmission of COVID-19.

  2. FIND that pursuant to the Los Angeles Administrative Code, Section 10.15, due to the immediate need to provide public outreach materials to promote COVID-19 vaccine acceptance and other public health practices to reduce COVID-19 transmission, the public interest or necessity requires contracting with the Korean Youth and Community Center without an advertisement for bids.

  3. AUTHORIZE the General Manager, Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), or designee, to negotiate a sole source contract with the Korean Youth and Community Center in the amount of $400,000 for the period of March 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022 to support the implementation of a citywide COVID-19 public awareness campaign.

  4. AUTHORIZE the General Manager, HCIDLA, or designee, to submit a substantial amendment to the Program Year 46 Consolidated Plan to allocate $400,000 of the CDBG-CV funds as awarded to the City for eligible activities in support of this public awareness campaign that will aim to preserve, prevent, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

  5. AUTHORIZE the City Administrative Officer (CAO) with the assistance of the City Controller, to transfer $100,000 from Coronavirus Relief Funds to launch the public outreach campaign.

Fiscal Impact Statement: The CLA reports that there is no impact to the General Fund. The CLA report dated February 22, 2021, attached to the Council file recommends a $500,000 allocation of CARES Act, CDBG-CV to initiate a citywide COVID-19 public outreach program. To immediately initiate the program, this report recommends a $100,000 loan from the COVID-19 Emergency Response Account, with the loan to be fully reimbursed from CDBG-CV grant receipts in Program Year 2020-21. The loan does present a degree of risk if the COVID-19 public awareness program is not accepted as an eligible activity by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
