EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

BACKGROUND With the start of the transition of the Neighborhood Council Funding Program to the Office of the City Clerk, the Department is refocusing on its core services in FY 2017-2018 of supporting the Neighborhood Councils meeting operations and policy while expanding our team’s outreach capacity for Neighborhood Council elections as well as carry out Mayoral Directives and assume projects developed with the Mayor’s Innovation and Public Engagement Teams. In addition, the Department is committed to executing the tactical plan developed in the Google Angels Lab for a new and expanded level of civic engagement in Los Angeles. To meet these goals, we are requesting the restoration of staffing and resources to at least pre-budget deficit levels. In FY 2007-2008, the Department had 52 staffers of which 6 were dedicated to the Funding Program, leaving 46 to cover field, policy and administration of Neighborhood Council and Department functions. With 96 Neighborhood Councils currently certified and an anticipated 3-5 more in the pipeline next year due to subdivision, the Department is working with a greater number of Neighborhood Councils on even more issues today without sufficient resources to meet the task. As such, the FY 2017-2018 budget request is admittedly robust though absolutely necessary to support the growing needs of the Neighborhood Councils and of civic engagement in Los Angeles. We have partnered with other City departments to expand required services to Neighborhood Councils and to create a more inclusive and innovative civic engagement system in Los Angeles. The Department is submitting a Proposed Budget for FY 2017-18 of $5,266,934 with a 106.9% increase from the Department’s Approved FY 2016-2017 Budget to address the following service deficits  : 1. Election Outreach - In post election town halls, Neighborhood Councils demanded more election outreach efforts on the part of the City, particularly in recruiting candidates, because they thought it was unrealistic for sitting board members to vote on funding for individual Neighborhood Council outreach efforts to find their own competitors. With a 20% decrease in the number of candidates in the 2016 Neighborhood Council elections resulting in fewer voters than 2014 elections, the Department must have the resources to take on the election outreach from day one of FY 2017-18.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

2. Mayoral Executive Directives and Projects - The Department is supporting seven (7) Mayoral Executive Directives (Great Streets, Emergency Drought Responses, Sustainable City pLAn, Clean Streets Initiative, Vision Zero, El Niño Preparedness Response and Recovery, and Purposeful Aging LA) with existing Field staff, which takes Field staff time away from Neighborhood Council meeting operation services. Ownership of the projects we created and administered with the Mayor’s Innovation and Public Engagement Teams, Civic Youth Leadership Academy and Neighborhood Council Welcome to the Neighborhood cards for stakeholders has now transferred fully to us and is part of our Mayor’s expectations letter.  3. Civic Engagement Services for the City - In addition to supporting Neighborhood Council meeting operations and teaching them how to interact with the City, the Department is also tasked via LAAC 22.801.i and the Mayor’s expectation letter with educating the City on how to work with Neighborhood Councils, which the Department is not currently staffed for in its budget. We do still assist City departments in connecting effectively with Neighborhood Councils though, but more resources are needed to support this function because it also uses Field staff time, which should be going towards Neighborhood Council meeting operations. The Department is folding this function into a multi-departmental budget request to execute the tactical plan for civic engagement developed in the Google Angels Lab, which would raise the standard of public participation for the entire City through staff trainings of effective ways to engage the community, a centralized civic engagement portal, a civic engagement gaming app and the creation of a civic engagement rating standard for departments amongst other projects. 4. Neighborhood Council Education and Enforcement - The accurate tracking of mandatory Neighborhood Council board member trainings requires the transfer of current manual updates to the Personnel Department’s online Cornerstone platform with the development of new training videos. The Department is also committed to bringing all its and Neighborhood Councils’ operations into full compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to increase access and include stakeholders with disabilities. Staffing is also required to coordinate with the Personnel Department, the Department on Disability (DOD) and the Office of the City Attorney on personnel and ADA complaints. 5. Create a Sustainable Infrastructure for the Department - Existing Department staff has taken on roles that used to be performed by positions that were cut from the Department. These include management level staff, Board of Neighborhood Commissioners staffing and support staff for administrative functions, such as Department accounting and payroll and

Neighborhood Council Public Records Act Requests, contracts/leases and inventory. This has led to decreased response time and much frustration from Neighborhood Councils, the Commission and other City staff.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL FY 2017-2018 FUNDING ALLOCATION The Department has submitted two (2) versions of the Special Funds – Schedule 18 document. The versions vary in the amount of funding appropriated for the Neighborhood Empowerment Fund for the yearly allocation for 100 Neighborhood Councils: →→ Version 1 reflects a restoration of funding for each Neighborhood Council to the original yearly allocation of $50,000. Total Neighborhood Empowerment Fund Appropriation: $5,000,000 →→ Version 2 continues the funding for each Neighborhood Council at the current yearly allocation of $42,000. Total Neighborhood Empowerment Fund Appropriation: $4,200,000 The Department highly recommends a portion of unspent Neighborhood Council funds from the current fiscal year (25%) be reinvested in the Neighborhood Council system by setting up separate accounts for capacity building and translation for Neighborhood Councils. These funds can be available to the Neighborhood Councils requiring funding for these services via an application process. Currently, Neighborhood Councils requiring capacity building and translation/interpretation for their communities are unfairly disadvantaged in the yearly allocation they can spend in their communities. This fund would provide equity to such Neighborhood Councils compared to other Neighborhood Councils who do not require such services. Respectfully submitted,

Since the Department only has two employees eligible to retire within the next two years, an in-depth discussion was conducted that focused on (1) the significance of each position in relation to the Department’s central operations; (2) the necessity to capture and transfer knowledge; (3) potential recruitment issues and strategies for the following classes: Neighborhood Empowerment Analyst and Senior Accountant.  The purpose of this report is two-fold: First, to get ahead of these impending departures and determine appropriate strategies to proactively address them. These strategies include suggestions for recruitment, examining, employee development, and knowledge capture and transfer. Secondly, to assess how the Department’s core mission and functions will change over time and the impact on succession planning which includes an assessment of the Department’s current and future usage of traditional civil service classifications.

DEPARTMENT’S CORE MISSION & WORKFORCE ASSESSMENT Since its establishment in 1999, the Los Angeles Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (aka EmpowerLA) has grown into the nation’s largest and most innovative initiative in civic engagement and citizen-based government. Through a network of 96 Neighborhood Councils, the City promotes public participation in government and works to improve government responsiveness to local concerns. The primary goal of the Department is to increase civic engagement with citizens and with City Departments. The work of the Department’s field staff e.g. Sr. Project Coordinators, Project Coordinators, Project Assistants, and Neighborhood Empowerment Analysts play a critical role towards this function.   In the past two years, the Department experienced a 43% attrition rate (3 of 7 authorized positions) in the Neighborhood Empowerment Analyst classification due to either regular transfer or resignation. At that time, the Department decided to fill these vacant positions in lieu with Project Coordinators and will continue to do so. Specifically, as the current incumbents leave the Department, either through retirement, transfer or promotion, the Department plans to fill the positions using Project Coordinator and Project Assistant classifications. Implementing this hiring plan gives the Department the flexibility needed to recruit and select the best qualified candidates from a broader candidate pool taken from within and outside the City workforce.  This hiring method also addresses the recruitment and retention issues identified by Department management, namely, that the small size of the department provides few internal promotional opportunities and the nature of the work which involves non-traditional work hours and requires a specific set of job skills and high level of interaction with very vocal community groups e.g. Neighborhood

EQUITABLE WORKFORCE AND SERVICE RESTORATION PLAN

Councils oftentimes discourages potential candidates from coming to or remaining in the Department. It also recognizes that the experience, knowledge, and skills required for these positions would generally not be found through the City’s existing civil service process. Accordingly, the Department anticipates that this classification will no longer be necessary in the future and will not request an examination. Instead, the Department requested and received four (4) new Project Coordinator positions in their FY 16-17 Budget. Since the Project Coordinator and Project Assistant classifications are normally employed on an exempt basis or by emergency appointment, the Department has asked City Council to exempt the Department from the two hundred (200) exemption limit which will enable them to hire in proportionate numbers to meet their operational needs.  The Department does not foresee any issues with retaining or capturing knowledge that may be lost due to attrition of the Neighborhood Empowerment Analyst classification. The Department’s policies and procedures are constantly being updated to reflect the continually evolving nature of the work that the Neighborhood Empowerment Analysts and Project Coordinators are engaged in. As a result, the “transfer of knowledge” between the new hire and prior incumbent will not be necessary since the new hire will have access to the current procedures and the prior incumbent’s knowledge may no longer be applicable. Additionally, the Department encourages and regularly sends their employees to trainings and conferences e.g. IAP2 and Google Innovation Labs to develop their civic engagement skills.  

towards utilizing exempt classifications for their field operations, the Department will still utilize the civil service process to fill their administrative, accounting, and clerical positions e.g. Administrative Clerk, Senior Management Analyst, and Senior Accountant.   In the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment’s FY 16-17 Budget, the administration of the Neighborhood Council (NC) Funding program was transferred to the Office of the City Clerk effective July 1, 2016. This included the transfer of five (5) regular authority positions in the following classifications: Senior Accountant II, Accountant II, Accounting Clerk, Project Assistant, and Executive Administrative Assistant III. Resultantly, the potential loss of the Senior Accountant, due to retirement, would have a greater and more immediate impact, as it handles critical accounting functions and will be the only remaining accounting position in the Department.   The Department foresees a challenge in filling the Senior Accountant position. This is due both to minimal room for advancement within the Department and the necessary “transfer of knowledge” that would need to take place between the new hire and prior incumbent. To facilitate the transfer of knowledge, it is recommended that prior to the incumbent’s retirement the Department should request a substitute authority position to allow for appropriate training and transition of responsibilities to the new incumbent.

The Department will continue utilize the following recruitment methods to obtain their Project Coordinator and Project Assistant candidate pools:  Personnel Department’s website, per.lacity.org – The Personnel Department website provides job seekers with a listing of Civil Service Exempt Job Opportunities categorized by City department. College and Universities Career Center –  The Personnel Department utilizes the respective university career center job boards to advertise job opportunities to college students and graduates when the position requires applicants to have a degree.   In June 2015, the Department, with the assistance of the Personnel Department, successfully utilized the aforementioned recruitment resources to fill their vacant positions from a pool of over 40 qualified candidates. The Department will continue to utilize these recruitment methods and will work with their Personnel Liaison Analyst to create future job advertisements.     Although, the Department functions more akin to a City Council Office rather than a typical City department and has made a move

EQUITABLE WORKFORCE AND SERVICE RESTORATION PLAN

TARGETED LOCAL HIRING The Targeted Local Hiring Program is part of the Mayor’s larger initiative to create a more equitable workforce and restore City services, as indicated by Executive Directive 15. The Program will target individuals from under-served populations. Through this program, candidates will be provided an opportunity to be considered for employment by City departments.  The Department of Neighborhood Empowerment currently has one vacant Administrative Clerk position that could be filled using the Targeted Local Hiring Program. However, due to the small size of the Department every position is critical with an immediate need to fill the position.  Therefore, the Department will not be participating in the Targeted Local Hiring Program at the present time. However, the Department fully supports the intent of the program and has participated in similar program e.g. Hire LA Youth. Additionally, the Department has a history of providing full-time job opportunities to their as-needed staff. 

TECHNOLOGY As previously stated one of the primary functions of the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment is working with a network of 96 Neighborhood Councils to promote public participating in government and improve government responsiveness to local concerns. In discussions with Personnel Department staff, the Department has reimagined and brainstormed a multitude of ways that technology e.g. software, programs, and applications can be utilized to improve upon the delivery of this service. The following are a couple of the suggestions:  →→ The ability for the public to weigh in on public comment easily using virtual reality, tools from vendors, and LA Digital Government.  →→ Creation of a set of visual interfaces e.g. cartoon of a City street with trash and parking that would easily provide the contact information for City services in a simple, engaging, and local way.  →→ Use of gamification to help people connect more and encourage engagement like through MyLA311 game in Google Innovation Labs  →→ Technology solutions and partnerships with nonprofits, universities, and schools and Departments e.g. ITA and Pat Brown Institute.  →→ Use of available training modules e.g. Cornerstone to assist with providing ethics and harassment training to Neighborhood Council volunteers in accordance with State laws.    The Department is in the process of preparing a comprehensive technology needs assessment for submittal to ITA by the November 2016 deadline.

ALIGNMENT WITH PRIORITY OUTCOME(S) Primary Priority Outcome: Make Los Angeles the best-run big city in America. Other Priority Outcomes: Create a more livable and sustainable City Description: This program supports the priority outcomes by ensuring that the City processes involving partnerships with Civic groups are well run. The work this program supports affords NCs the ability to function and engage the community at large, drive projects, fund requests from the general public, leverage funds and efforts by partnering with CBO, businesses, schools, etc. The work that NCs perform also impacts the City’s sustainability by creating more livable and sustainable communities. NCs drive projects that invest in our City Departments such LAPD, LAFD, Rec and Parks, etc. NCs partner with businesses so that they establish a relationship with the community about goods and services high in demand. NCs drive projects such as community gardens; clean up projects; partnerships with street services to identify streets to that need maintenance, etc. They also work with schools and partner to foster dialogues and promote investments in our children’s education.

ALIGNMENT WITH STRATEGIC DOCUMENTS

PERFORMANCE METRICS The metrics associated with this program include the effects of providing adequate administrative support to enhance day to day operations of NCs. Furthermore, these metrics also measure the effect of providing adequate field support to NCs so that they can build capacity, function better and have a desired and tangible impact in their communities. Lastly, these metrics also measure the impact of how Angelenos can connect civically through their NCs and have a voice within their local government.  Some of the metrics to evaluate the administrative component of the program include the number of leases processed in a specific timeframe; number of contracts executed in a specific timeframe; increase in the number of inventory logs we have by 30%, etc. For Field support, we are looking at the number of trainings, board retreats, and topic specific online tools we provide to NCs.  »»

  »»

Are these the best metrics to measure the success of this program? Are there other metrics that could be used to evaluate the outputs, effectiveness, efficiency, and outcomes of this program?   The Department recently underwent an internal reorganization thus we will be adding metrics that might not have been presented before.  What are the long-term targets for this program? How were these determined? What are the assumptions that went into this determination? What will be required to meet these targets?  The long term target for the program is to increase the ability of Neighborhood Councils to become more self-sufficient. By providing the necessary tools and systems, NCs can be more independent in their operations and utilize less City resources to get things done. We also strive to foster the credibility of NCs as government agencies and ensuring that they perform their role indicated in the City Charter and bring local communities closer to City Government. 

COORDINATION WITH OTHER CITY DEPARTMENTS This program regularly interfaces with City Departments, Elected Officials, City Council, City Attorney’s Office, Mayor’s Office, Commissions such as the Board of Neighborhood Commissioners, Planning Commission and Public Works Commission as well as Risk Management, Department on Disability, General Services, Law Enforcement, etc.   PARTNERING WITH RESIDENTS AND CIVIC GROUPS The Neighborhood Council Operations and Field Support Program works to maintain, promote and further enhance the self governing qualities of Neighborhood Councils by ensuring that key operational components function smoothly and give stability and consistency to the 96 NCs in the system thereby ensuring that each NCs’ constituency made up of residents and stakeholders is engaged. This program also aims to develop NCs knowledge-base related to technical, social and political components to ensure that NCs advocate effectively at City Hall.

STATUS OF RECENTLY FUNDED INITIATIVES In FY 15-16, the Department reallocated a Management Analyst II (MAII) into this program and his contributions helped to establish a system of monitoring and tracking for NC agendas which measures how many NCs post their agendas in a timely manner and reach out to their constituency thereby making grassroots government more inclusive and responsive.

BUDGET PROGRAM REQUEST JUSTIFICATION: BM4701

DETAIL OF BUDGET PROGRAMS REQUESTS New Request: Program Coordination and Mileage Adjustment 1. Description of Request: Coordinate Civic Youth Leadership Academy, establish Neighborhood Council Youth Alliance, and administer Welcome to Your Neighborhood program for Neighborhood Councils →→ 1 Project Coordinator ($50,513) →→ Printing and Binding ($5,000) →→ Contractual Services ($15,000) →→ Transportation - ($20,700 for mileage adjustment for existing staff to increase attendance at Neighborhood Council meetings) 2. Justification: →→ Issue / Problem: The Neighborhood Council system currently skews older, retired adults. During the Mayor’s General Manager review last year, Mayor Garcetti requested more youth involvement. The Department worked with the Mayor’s Innovation Team and Public Engagement to create the Civic Youth Leadership Academy this summer, which graduated 40 students. In addition, the Department also worked with the Mayor’s Innovation Team to create a Welcome to the Neighborhood card for Neighborhood Councils to distribute to stakeholders new to the area, which not only introduced City services like myLA311, but also the Neighborhood Council for increased City services outreach.  →→ Impact on Performance Metrics: Recruit and graduate one class of Civic Youth Leadership Academy of 40 students though we will aim for two classes. Set up Welcome to the Neighborhood cards for all Neighborhood Councils.  →→ Operational improvement(s): The extra resources to take on these additional tasks are necessary and recommended in the Mayor’s Innovation Team’s report on Civic Youth Leadership Academy. Without this additional staffing, Field staff would be pulled from their Neighborhood Council meeting support work, which would impact the Department’s other performance metrics of 100% meeting attendance.

(20%).  ALIGNMENT WITH PRIORITY OUTCOME(S) Primary Priority Outcome: Make Los Angeles the best-run big city in America Other Priority Outcomes: Create a more livable and sustainable city Description: Please see below ALIGNMENT WITH STRATEGIC DOCUMENTS

□ Mayor’s Expectations Letter

□ Comprehensive Homeless Strategy

□ Equitable Workforce and Service Restoration Plan

□ Sustainable City pLAn □ Strategic Plan(s)

Strategic Plan - The Department’s 15-16 Strategic Plan includes goals of increasing direct assistance and education for NC Boards, as well as policy development support to the Board of Neighborhood Commissioners.  Sustainable City pLAn - Proper delivery of the services indicated above promote a safe, vibrant, well-connected, and healthy neighborhood, that improves the civic life of community members and encourages volunteerism such as the Neighborhood Council Sustainability Alliance.  Mayor’s Expectation Letter - The Mayor outlines the need to develop Civic University representation and participation, which is one of the components of service provided by this program  Comprehensive Homeless Strategy - The Mayor outlined the need to address the homelessness crisis in the City.

BUDGET PROGRAM REQUEST JUSTIFICATION: BM4703

PERFORMANCE METRICS The performance metrics for this program monitor the impact of the program to inform and educate Neighborhood Councils about the importance of submitting Community Impact Statements by tracking the number submitted. The Department has been conducting trainings on the Community Impact Statement process including drafting of Community Impact Statements and how to submit the Community Impact Statements after they have been approved by a Neighborhood Council in their weighing on legislation before the City. Additional trainings and outreach to Neighborhood Council leaders will help further engage and develop this program in encouraging more Neighborhood Councils to participate and weigh on legislation through the submission of Community Impact Statements.      STATUS OF RECENTLY FUNDED INITIATIVES This program received funds for Neighborhood Council Civic University this year, and we’ve partnered with the Mayor’s Office and the Pat Brown Institute of Cal State Los Angeles to conduct 3 Neighborhood Council Civic University classes in the Winter and Spring of 2017.

COORDINATION WITH OTHER CITY DEPARTMENTS This program requires coordination between City Clerk for the submission and tracking of Community Impact Statements. It also requires the partnership with the Office of the City Attorney’s Neighborhood Council Advice Division to collaborate on the policies for the Neighborhood Council system. This program also collaborates with ITA and GSD to provide Council audio and meeting location space for the Board of Neighborhood Commissioners’ meetings throughout the City. The Department also partners with the Mayor’s office and CD 8 in addressing the homelessness crisis in partnership with the Neighborhood Council Homelessness Liaisons. 

PARTNERING WITH RESIDENTS AND CIVIC GROUPS The Policy & Government Relations program increases opportunities for civic participation by using the strategies of working with and through Neighborhood Councils to seek input on decisions that affect the City. The development of effective policies for Neighborhood Councils to interact with City agencies and to streamline systems to provide timely information to Neighborhood Councils regarding the delivery of City services to their respective community increases the likelihood that Neighborhood Council Board Members will use their positions to meet their mission of being informed advisory bodies to City Hall.  Community Impact Statements are placed on actual City Council agendas allowing Neighborhood Councils to directly give input into the legislative process. This program provides timely information on the Council Files that may affect them and their communities. Neighborhood Councils that file Community Impact Statements on a particular Council File will have an opportunity to now their voice heard at the table prior to general public comment at the discretion of a Council Committee Chair or the presiding officer of a City Council meeting.  The Planning and Policy program also directly collaborates and supports the work of Neighborhood Council leaders on the Congress of Neighborhoods and the Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates to inform and advise City elected officials and Departments on City services. This program also works with the Board of Neighborhood Commissioners to develop policy and also highlight the positive work and activities of the Neighborhood Councils through the annual EmpowerLA awards.  Partnerships with civic groups include Cal State LA for Civic University which would help empower the next generation of leaders for the Neighborhood Council system. Civic University has trained nearly 300 Neighborhood Council leaders in empowering the next generation of leaders within the Neighborhood Council system.

DETAIL OF BUDGET PROGRAMS REQUESTS Copy and use the format below for each budget request. This proposal should explain why funding is needed in order to meet or exceed the current level of service. Proposals must include specific numerical evidence where possible. If you have any questions on how to present your request in this format, please feel free to contact your CAO analyst or the Mayor’s Office. Use the Budget Request letter included in the Excel template (A, B, C, etc) when referencing each Budget Request.  New Request: Departmental Liaison for Various Programs (including Homelessness) 1. Description of Request: Coordinate Neighborhood Council Board of Public Works Liaisons, Animal Services Liaisons, and other liaisons as implemented. In particular, work with the Homelessness Liaisons to integrate into the citywide Homelessness plan per Mayor’s Executive Directive and City Council action. Coordinate Neighborhood Council leaders in the yearly Congress of Neighborhoods, partner with the Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates for the Mayor’s Budget Day and during the yearly budget process and plan the second Spring Congress, which includes the EmpowerLA Awards →→ 1 Project Coordinator ($50,513) →→ Transportation ($2,100) →→ Office and Admin ($30,000 - $10,000 for the Congress of Neighborhoods, $10,000 for Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates and $10,000 for 2nd Congress/EmpowerLA Awards) 2. Justification: →→ Issue / Problem: Through Mayoral Executive Directives and City Council action, the Department staff has been tasked with ensuring collaboration on a number of citywide issues from Clean Streets to Homelessness. The Department’s Field staff have been pulled from their Neighborhood Council meeting operations support functions to carry this workload. As a result, Neighborhood Councils are not receiving assistance to help them carry out basic functions, such as meeting quorum, which defeats the purpose of trying to conduct the outreach required by the directives.  →→ Alignment with strategic documents:

□ Mayor’s Expectations Letter

□ Comprehensive Homeless Strategy

□ Equitable Workforce and Service Restoration Plan

□ Sustainable City pLAn □ Strategic Plan(s)

As indicated above. Further, the Mayor’s Expectations Letter expects consistent support Neighborhood Councils with Field staff attending 100% of Neighborhood Council monthly board meetings. This is not possible with the level of support expected for Neighborhood Council liaisons, Civic University, Congress and Budget Advocates work. →→ Impact on Performance Metrics: Field staff will be able to attend 100% of Neighborhood Council meetings. The Department will be able to conduct at a minimum, quarterly meetings, with all Neighborhood Council City liaisons.  →→ Operational improvement(s): This request is to allow Field staff to focus on their Neighborhood Council meeting operations work, which is necessary for a healthy Neighborhood Council. Currently, the Congress of Neighborhoods and Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates meet year long each month, and staff are needed to support these meetings and logistics of the events. Again, this takes away from the Field staff ’s ability to attend 100% of Neighborhood Council meetings.

□ Equitable Workforce and Service Restoration Plan

□ Sustainable City pLAn □ Strategic Plan(s)

Mayor’s Expectations Letter: “Increase Neighborhood Council election turnout to 40,000” Sustainable City pLAn: Livable Neighborhoods -this proposal creates opportunities for engagement and the formation of strong community bonds. Equitable Workforce and Service Restoration Plan: the increase in entry level positions (Administrative Clerk) would allow the Department to utilize the Targeted Local Hiring Program to find candidates in under-served populations. Strategic Plan: Expand Outreach and Communication Efforts for the Neighborhood Council System and Conduct Successful Citywide Neighborhood Council Elections PERFORMANCE METRICS This program’s performance metrics are tied directly into the effectiveness of the Department’s social media and website outreach abilities by measuring its online Klout score. The effectiveness of the program’s education to Neighborhood Councils about how they can better communicate with their stakeholders will also be tied to Klout score measurements. The number of City department collaborations is important, but the program added in a satisfaction survey to determine the quality of the collaborations as well.

Description of Request: →→ Positions: »» 1 Assistant General Manager ($98,932) »» 1 Executive Administrative Assistant III ($56,443) »» 1 Commission Executive Assistant II ($56,235) »» 1 Administrative Clerk ($32,595) »» 1 Accounting Clerk ($42,503) »» 1 Principal Project Coordinator ($76,795) →→ Expenses: »» Printing and Binding ($10,000) »» Contractual Services ($5,000) »» Transportation ($10,000) »» Office and Admin ($6,000) 2. Justification: »» Issue / Problem: Existing Department staff has taken on roles that used to be performed by positions that were cut from the Department. These include management level staff, Board of Neighborhood Commissioners staffing and support staff for administrative functions, such as Department accounting and payroll and Neighborhood Council Public Records Act Requests, contracts/leases and inventory. This has led to decreased response time and much frustration from Neighborhood Councils, the Commission and other City staff.   »» Impact on Performance Metrics: Timely submission of payroll with all supporting documents. Timely preparation of Board of Neighborhood Commissioners agendas, minutes and policies. Timely tracking of Neighborhood Council data and Department performance metrics.  »» Operational improvement(s): This request allows managers to start overseeing and supporting staff to complete their work and meet Department goals in a timely manner. The lack of such key support positions keeps the Department in a perpetual state of catch-up, causing work stress and burnout of existing staff, and frustration and anger with Commissioners and Neighborhood Councils.

DESCRIPTION This Budget Request Package identifies the funding requirements necessary to conduct approximately 96 Neighborhood Council (NC) Board Member Elections between March and June of 2018. For the 2018 NC Elections, the Office of the City Clerk (City Clerk) will assume operational control over the conduct of NC elections. The Department of Neighborhood Empowerment’s breakdown is to provide a robust 2018 citywide outreach and communication strategy to recruit Neighborhood Council candidates and to raise the awareness of the Neighborhood Council system in Los Angeles: →→ Positions: »» 2 Project Coordinators ($101,027) »» 1 Administrative Clerk ($32,595) →→ Expense: »» Salaries, As-Needed ($97,000) »» Printing and Binding ($60,000) »» Contractual Services ($460,000 for online voting platform, training and translation) »» Transportation ($4,200) »» Office and Admin ($100,000) ALIGNMENT WITH PRIORITY OUTCOME(S) Primary Priority Outcome: Make Los Angeles the best run big city in America Other Priority Outcomes: Create a more livable and sustainable city

JUSTIFICATION →→ Issue / Problem: »» NCs are Charter-created bodies designed to address issues affecting their specific communities. They are a vital part of the City’s fabric and having a voice in City government and facilitating active citizen participation contributes to the Mayor’s goal of making Los Angeles the nation’s best run big city. Their participation helps make the City safer and more livable. NCs are governed by an elected board and elections are an essential part of the NC governing framework. »» The City Clerk has assisted EmpowerLA in administering NC Elections since October 2007. Most of the assistance has been partial, however, in 2010, the City Clerk was provided $1.9 million to run every aspect of the 89 NC elections. Of the budgeted amount, the City Clerk spent a total of $1,161,139 or 60.95%, saving $743,861 or 39.05% of what was allotted. The City Clerk has experience providing comprehensive election services to the NCs, and it’s been able to deliver those services cost effectively. »» Currently, there are approximately 96 certified NCs in the City of Los Angeles. The City Clerk will administer the 2018 NC elections using the 2010 Election model. The City Clerk will oversee administrative and operational processes including candidate filing, ballot production, canvass, polling place and poll worker recruitment, poll worker training, Election Day operations, assembly of supplies, and payroll processing for poll workers. The City Clerk will also compile information from Election Day surveys and stakeholder registration forms for each of the NCs after their respective elections. EmpowerLA will focus on election outreach. →→ Alignment with strategic documents, check all that apply:

Mayor’s Expectations Letter: “Increase Neighborhood Council election turnout to 40,000” Equitable Workforce and Service Restoration Plan: the increase in entry level positions (Administrative Clerk) would allow the Department to utilize the Targeted Local Hiring Program to find candidates in under-served populations. »» Strategic Plan: Expand Outreach and Communication Efforts for the Neighborhood Council System and Conduct Successful Citywide Neighborhood Council Elections →→ Impact on Performance Metrics: »» # of voters in 2018 »» # of registered candidates in 2018s  →→ Operational improvement(s): »» Adequately funding this high priority package will allow EmpowerLA to conduct effective outreach, and the City Clerk to administer NC elections, and will ensure the functional stability of the NC system as a whole. »» Inadequate funding will jeopardize the City’s ability to conduct the 2018 NC Elections. Specifically, underfunding this package would risk the quality and outcome of approximately 96 NC elections and hinder the City Clerk’s ability to meet its legal obligations set forth in Los Angeles Administrative Code 20.36. Any disruption to the NC election process will have the potential to adversely affect internal NC affairs, result in possible NC bylaw violations, and damage stakeholder confidence in the integrity of the NC system as a whole.

DESCRIPTION Funding is requested for a collaborative effort across three City Departments, Neighborhood Empowerment (EmpowerLA), Personnel Department, and Department on Disability (DOD) to address the streamlining of Neighborhood Council training videos including ADA accessibility, site assessments for the 96 Neighborhood Councils to ensure ADA compliance, and the hiring of an independent contractor to investigate allegations of harassment. Neighborhood Council Training The Personnel Department has a training module - Cornerstone - which is used to administer training videos to City of Los Angeles employees and track progress and compliance. This application can be made available to Neighborhood Council board members to improve the way critical information is administered and tracked, ensuring compliance with critical training requirements such as ethics and funding processes. The Department is also partnering with the Department on Disability to ensure that all training videos meet ADA requirements and are accessible in multiple ways to ensure the diverse community of board members can take the training with any needed accommodations. Site-Assessment MOA The Department on Disability (DOD) seeks to execute a new 3-year MOA with the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (EmpowerLA). DOD’s CASp and ADA Compliance Officer will conduct site visits of all 96 Neighborhood Council (NC) offices to review & assess those facilities for ADA compliance. The review process will include but is not limited to: doorways, steps, accessories, paths of travel, and technology. The MOA is for $68,221.00 for an overall term of 3 years, renewable for each of three individual twelve-month terms at a rate of $22,741.00 per annum, during which EmpowerLA will pay to DOD a comprehensive, fully inclusive hourly rate of $39.48 for the CASp and ADA Compliance Officer, which may also include the deployment of any additional DOD personnel, for 1,728 total work hours. Additional Neighborhood Council host locations, if identified, shall enjoy a rate equal to that of the prior site cost allotments posted herein, or may be negotiated to include additional services or personnel resources at such time(s), if such amendment(s) are sought by the parties. Reducing Liability (Investigations) Funding is required to conduct independent complaint investigations in Neighborhood Councils (Boards). In 2014, State Assembly Bill 1443 amended the Fair Employment and Housing Act to extend anti-harassment protections to volunteers. The City now has an obligation to investigate allegations of unlawful harassment of volunteers. The City Attorney’s Office has stated that more than 1,800 Neighborhood Council Board members are now covered by Assembly Bill 1443. Historically, the City has received several such complaints from Neighborhood Council Board members. Given the new obligations, the City requires resources to investigate and respond to complaints in a timely manner and ultimately provide Board members with a harassment-free environment.

JUSTIFICATION →→ Issue / Problem: Neighborhood Council Training »» Currently, the Department administers a few online training videos via YouTube and Vimeo, and requires board members to complete a registration form, submitting it either online or on paper to the Department. This information is then entered by staff into a separate system. Due to staff shortages, and human error, true compliance with training requirements is sometimes not up to date, or contains errors. Resolving the issues and complaints that comes from this process becomes a lengthy issue as staff has to research what little information they have and sometimes results in asking a board member to re-take a training.

MULTI-DEPARTMENTAL REQUEST: EMD

JUSTIFICATION →→ Issue/Problem: »» Neighborhood Councils are engaged in emergency preparedness activities from emergency bins to neighborhood mapping to emergency communications, including ham radio. Until the recent formation of the Neighborhood Council Emergency Preparedness Alliance (NCEPA) in the past year, however, there wasn’t a citywide effort to coordinate these activities in collaboration with the Emergency Management Department’s programs, particularly their 5 Steps to Neighborhood Preparedness Jump Start Program. The NCEPA is already working with the Neighborhood Council Sustainability Alliance (NCSA) on combining emergency preparedness issues with sustainability matters, and NCSA has incorporated the Jump Start Program into their Cool Blocks Program as a result. In addition, the Office of the City Attorney has determined that Neighborhood Councils cannot maintain emergency bins themselves because of the liability issues though a City department, such as EMD, can take on this function. Lastly, the NCEPA is seeking integration of Neighborhood Councils into a coordinated emergency communications plan with EMD. »» Through a partnership between the Emergency Management Department and the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, the Neighborhood Council Emergency Preparedness Program begins the process of incorporating the Neighborhood Councils into a citywide effort to submit Jump Start plans for their communities, set up emergency bins and include them in emergency communications for the City. Ultimately, this program should also tie into the City’s Resiliency Hubs. →→ Alignment with strategic documents:

□ Mayor’s Expectations Letter

□ Comprehensive Homeless Strategy

□ Equitable Workforce and Service Restoration Plan

□ Sustainable City pLAn □ Strategic Plan(s)

»»

Sustainable City pLAn - Proper delivery of the services indicated above promote a safe, vibrant, well-connected, and healthy neighborhood, that improves the civic life of community members and encourages volunteerism in the Neighborhood Council system, including the NCSA. →→ Impact on Performance Metrics: »» Jump Start Plans - 50 new plans on file the first year with a goal of at least 10 plans from every Neighborhood Council long term »» Emergency Bins - pilot of up to 35 bins the first year with a goal of at least 1 bin in every Neighborhood Council long term  »» Emergency Communications - creation of an emergency communications plan that incorporates the Neighborhood Council system, including ham radio operations →→ Operational Improvements: »» Partnership and coordination between the City and Neighborhood Councils ensures a uniform approach to emergency preparedness that allows for feedback from the community, and comprehensive education on best practices across the City PARTNERING WITH RESIDENTS AND CIVIC GROUPS This program is heavily dependent on partnering with Neighborhood Councils and other residents and civic group in submitting Jump Start and emergency communication plans. In addition, collaboration with Neighborhood Councils is necessary to administer the emergency bins plan. COORDINATION WITH OTHER CITY DEPARTMENTS In the first year, EMD will partner with the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment in creating and implementing an effective outreach plan with the Neighborhood Councils to meet the metrics of the program. The Department of Neighborhood Empowerment will assist EMD in execution of the program with Neighborhood Councils through its field and outreach staff. REVENUE N/A

JUSTIFICATION DESCRIPTION The Department proposes the elimination of $40,000 baseline funds for the Outreach and Communications / Field Support Program which was used to hire As-Needed staff to conduct various types of outreach, social media services, and election assistance services.     EXPLANATION →→ Issue/Problem: »» The elimination of these funds is contingent upon the addition of permanent staff to BM4704. Approval of those positions would enhance this program’s ability to meet critical outreach and election services goals, which would eliminate the need to hire As-Needed staff on an annual basis. As-Needed funding would, however, still be required during election years. →→ Alignment with strategic documents:

□ Mayor’s Expectations Letter

□ Comprehensive Homeless Strategy

□ Equitable Workforce and Service Restoration Plan

□ Sustainable City pLAn □ Strategic Plan(s)

»»

Strategic Plan - Streamlines election outreach services to permanent staff that can provide consistent assistance to NCs and stakeholders. →→ Impact on Performance Metrics: N/A →→ Operational Improvements: »» If this proposal is approved without additional approvals for permanent election staff additions, the Department will have less success in providing outreach and election related services to NCs and stakeholders. COORDINATION WITH OTHER CITY DEPARTMENTS Continued collaboration and coordination with the Office of the City Clerk would be required to ensure successful NC elections every other year.

ANTICIPATED CHALLENGES

ANTICIPATED DEPARTMENT OPERATIONAL AND FISCAL CHALLENGES BEYOND 2017-18 The Department of Neighborhood Empowerment is anticipating continued growth of the Neighborhood Council System due to many successful years of outreach and garnering interest in the system and NC Elections. It is also anticipated that the online voting platform will continue to grow as further interest by NC Boards requires additional build-out to the system. This will bring about additional need for funds and resources to capture that growth.
