[INVOCATION]

[00:00:04]

>>> GOOD EVENING. IT IS 7:30 P.M. AND WE ARE MEETING IN OUR REGULAR SESSION AND WE DO HAVE A QUORUM.

WE ARE GOING TO START OUR EVENING WITH AN INVOCATION FROM THE PASTOR. THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

PLEASE PREPARE FOR INVOCATION. >> THANK YOU, MADAME MAYOR.

LET US PRAY. FATHER GOD, WE THANK YOU FOR ANOTHER DAY THAT WE CAN COME TOGETHER.

WE KNOW, LORD, THESE ARE TRYING TIMES.

LORD, I SPEAK YOUR WORD. PSALM 46, YOU ARE OUR REFUGE AND STRENGTH THEREFORE WE WILL NOT FEAR.

LORD, I THANK YOU EVERY DECISION MADE TONIGHT AND IN THE DAYS TO COME WOULD BE MADE OUT OF FAITH AND WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING AND NOT FEAR, GOD. I PRAY YOU GIVE THIS COUNCIL AND EVERYONE INVOLVED THE DIVINE WISDOM, DIVINE DIRECTION AS THEY LEAD, GUIDE, GUARD, AND GOVERN OUR BEAUTIFUL CITY AND WE THANK YOU FOR THIS DAY, LORD, AND I ASK YOU TO BLESS THEM.

IN JESUS NAME WE PRAY, AMEN. >> THANK YOU SO MUCH, SIR.

>> THANK YOU. >> HAVE A GREAT EVENING.

>> ALL RIGHT. WE ARE CALLING THE MEETING TO ORDER AND WE DO HAVE A QUORUM. OUR FIRST ITEM IS ITEM 5A WHICH

[5A. Recognition of COVID-related extraordinary contributions.]

IS RECOGNITION OF COVID-RELATED EXTRAORDINARY CONTRIBUTIONS.

TONIGHT WE'RE GOING TO RECOGNIZE ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES AND WORK GROUPS. THE NUMBER OF COVID-19 CASES IN OUR COUNTRY EXCEEDS 1.8 MILLION AND OVER 100,000 INDIVIDUALS HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES TO THIS PANDEMIC. THE EFFORTS NECESSARY TO CONTROL ITS SPREAD HAVE CAUSED SEVERE ECONOMIC DAMAGE ACROSS THE NATION AND TO SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS IN OUR OWN CITY.

THE TOLL OF THIS VIRUS LOOMS LARGE EVERY DAY AND WILL SHAPE THE FUTURE OF OUR NATION. EVEN WHILE THIS PANDEMIC ALTERS OUR LIVES IN UNIMAGINABLE WAYS, WE WANT TO TAKE TIME IN OUR MEETINGS TO RECOGNIZE THOSE GROUPS AND INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE MADE EXTRAORDINARY CONTRIBUTIONS TO OUR COMMUNITY.

THIS PANDEMIC HAS TAKEN MUCH FROM US BUT HAS ALSO IGNITED A SPIRIT OF COMMUNITY. WE RECOGNIZE THOSE IN OUR COMMUNITY WHO CONTINUE TO FIGHT TO KEEP US SAFE.

HILTS CARE PROVIDERS DAB FIRST RESPONDERS, AND ESSENTIAL WORKERS. THEY CONTINUE TO WORK UNDER DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES NEVER WAIVERING IN THEIR COMMITMENT -- WEAVERING IN THEIR -- WAVERING IN THEIR COMMITMENT TO US.

EVEN AT THE RISK OF THEIR OWN AND THEIR FAMILY'S HEALTH.

THINS DISPENSABLE SERVICES HAVE RANGED FROM FRONT LINE WORKERS AT CERTAIN RETAIL OPERATIONS INCLUDING GROCERY STORES, FOOD DELIVERY SERVICES, POSTAL WORKERS AND OTHER DELIVERY SERVICES FOR GOODS. TWO RESTAURANTS THAT REVAMPED THEIR OPERATION TO SURVIVE WHILE PROVIDING CURB SIDE AND TO GO SERVICES. IN A TIME OF UNCERTAINTY, YOUR CONTINUED OPERATIONS AND DEDICATION HAVE PROVIDED A LIFE LINE FOR OUR COMMUNITY TO COEXIST WITH THIS VIRUS.

ON BEHALF OF THE CITY COUNCIL AND THE RESIDENTS WE SERVE, THANK YOU. STAY SAFE.

TOGETHER WE WILL STAY STRONG. THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR BUSINESSES LARGE AND SMALL. WE UNDERSTAND THIS IS A VERY DIFFICULT TIME PERIOD. OUR NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA IS

[5B. Update from the City Council and Management: Financial Position, Major Projects, Operational Issues, Upcoming Dates of Interest and Items of Community Interest.]

ITEM 5B WHICH IS UPDATE FROM CITY COUNCIL FINANCIAL POSITION MAJOR PROJECTS OPERATIONAL ISSUES AND ITEMS OF COMMUNITY INTEREST. WHERE'S MY CUPCAKE?

>> SO THE NEXT TIME WE GET TOGETHER WE'LL HAVE TO BRING SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR BLAKE'S BIRTHDAY.

SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOMORROW, BLAKE.

>> THANK YOU. >> COUNCIL, I HAVE BEEN ASKED TO GIVE AN UPDATE ON BULK TRASH. DOES ANYBODY WANT TO READ THIS?

[00:05:03]

>> ALL RIGHT. I'LL DO IT.

THIS IS -- THIS IS FROM OUR PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR AND JUST GIVING AN UPDATE TO THE PUBLIC ON BULK TRASH.

WE TALK TALK ABOUT THIS SO MANY TIMES DURING THE LAST THREE MONTHS BUT THE ISSUE IS STILL OUT THERE AND WE WANT TO CONTINUE TO INFORM OUR PUBLIC. WITH EVERYONE AT HOME, THIS MEANS THERE'S A LOT OF TIME OUT THERE FOR PEOPLE TO WORK IN THE YARD AND MORE TIME TO DO SPRING CLEANING.

THIS ALSO MEANS THERE ARE MORE PILES AND MORE STUFF OUT THERE TO PICK UP RESULTING IN FULLER TRUCKS THAT FILL UP FASTER AND MORE TRIPS TO THE LANDFILL. IN MAY, FCC EXPERIENCED DOUBLE THE AMOUNT OF BULK TRASH COLLECTION COMPARED TO THE TWO PREVIOUS YEARS. CREWS ARE MAKING AN EXTRAORDINARY EFFORT TO CLEAR ALL OF THIS ADDITIONAL BULK SET OUT IN AS TIMELY A MANNER AS THEY POSSIBLY CAN AND WE NEED YOUR HELP, PUBLIC. WE ASK THAT YOU IF POSSIBLE REFRAIN FROM ANY UNNECESSARY LANDSCAPE OR SMALL CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS. OPERATIONS ARE ALSO IMPACTED BY COVID-19 AS ARE MANY OTHER ORGANIZATIONS.

THEY HAVE HIRED ADDITIONAL EMPLOYEES TO FILL THE GAP OF THEIR QUARANTINED EMPLOYEES AND HAVE RENTED EQUIPMENT TO HELP SMOOTH OUT THIS BULK PEAK. I ALSO WANT TO MENTION IF YOU HIRE SOMEONE TO TRIM YOUR TREES, THEY ARE REQUIRED TO TAKE THAT BULK -- THOSE TREE TRIMMINGS AWAY WITH THEM.

SO DON'T BE IN A SITUATION WHERE YOU HIRE A PROFESSIONAL TO TRIM YOUR TREES AND THEN PUT ALL THOSE LIMBS AND BRANCHS OUT FRONT FOR THE CITY AND SPHEREX CC TO PICK UP.

THAT'S NOT HOW IT WORKS. THEN I ALSO WANT TO MENTION, YOU KNOW, IT IS FRUSTRATING, I'VE GOT BULK OUT IN FRONT OF MY HOUSE THAT'S BEEN THERE FOR TOO LONG.

THERE'S LOTS OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE THIS SITUATION.

BUT THERE ARE CITIES OUT THERE AND THERE'S A LOT OF THEM THAT HAVE DISCONTINUED BULK COLLECTION DURING THIS WHOLE TIME PERIOD AND SO WE HAVE CHOSEN NOT TO DO THAT BUT WE UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS A DELAY AND WE UNDERSTAND THAT FRUSTRATION. ANY COMMENTS YOU WANT TO MAKE ABOUT THAT, BRIAN? YOU'RE MUTED BUT I THINK YOU

SAID NO, MA'AM. >> NO.

NO THANK YOU. >> COUNCIL 234I OTHER ANNOUNCEMENTS BESIDES BLAKE'S 21ST BIRTHDAY TOMORROW? ALL RIGHT. IF YOU WANT TO PROVIDE CITIZENS COMMENTS FOR A MEETING, PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO US BY 3:30 THE DAY OF THE MEETING. WE DID NOT HAVE ANY COMMENTS FOR TONIGHT'S MEETING. THE NEXT ITEM ON THE AGENDA IS

[7. CONSENT AGENDA]

THE CONSENT AGENDA. COUNCIL HAS NOT ASKED TO HAVE ANYTHING REMOVED FOR INDIVIDUAL CONSIDERATION.

AND SO LAURA IF YOU WILL READ THOSE ITEMS INTO THE RECORD,

PLEASE. >> BEAR WITH ME HERE FOR A MOMENT, MAYOR.

>> WHILE I'M GETTING THIS TOGETHER, THE REASON I MADE A SLIDE IS BECAUSE WHEN WE'RE IN COUNCIL CHAMBERS AND PEOPLE ARE WATCHING ON TV, THEY CAN SEE WHAT WE'RE DOING BUT WITH THIS, THEY CAN'T. SO THAT'S WHY I'VE MADE THESE SLIDES AND THIS ONE DIDN'T GET UP IN TIME SO I APOLOGIZE FOR THE DELAY.

THE CUPCAKE SLIDE MADE IT ALL OKAY.

>> THAT WAS DREW. >> THAT WAS DREW?

>> THAT WAS DREW. >> THANK YOU, DREW.

I'M HUNGRY NOW.

>> SO THE CONSENT AGENDA IS 7A. APPROVING MINUTES.

7 B, CONSIDER A RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING A TASK AUTHORIZATION. 7 C, CONSIDER APPROVING A

[00:10:02]

FUNDING AGREEMENT. 7 D CONSIDER APPROVING A PROFESSIONAL SERVICE AGREEMENT FOR LAKE FRONT AT PECAN GROVE

PARK. >> THANK YOU.

>> I'LL MAKE A MOTION THAT WE APPROVE THE CONSENT ASTAIN AS

READ INTO THE RECORD. >> I'LL SECOND.

>> BLAKE HAS A SECOND. >> ALL IN FAVOR RAISE YOUR HAND.

>> AND THAT ITEM PASSES 7-0. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THE NEXT ITEM IS ITEM 8A. CONSIDER A RESOLUTION APPOINTING

[8A. Consider a resolution appointing a representative to the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Board of Directors.]

A REPRESENTATIVE TO THE DALLAS AREA RAPID TRANSIT BOARD OF DIRECTORS. WHO IS TAKING THAT ONE? IT IS NOW TIME TO MAKE THAT APPOINTMENT IN CONJUNCTION WITH TWO OTHER CITIES AND OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD I CAN'T RECALL WHICH THOSE ARE. THE REAPPOINTMENT DOES ARE REQUIRE A RESOLUTION FROM THE CITY.

>> ONE OF THOSE CITIES IS GARLAND AND I CAN'T REMEMBER THE

THIRD ONE. >> I THINK IT'S GLEN HEIGHTS.

>> OKAY. >> SO IS THAT IT, LAURA?

I DIDN'T MEAN TO CUT YOU OFF. >> YES, MA'AM.

>> OKAY. SO MARTHA, YOU STILL HAVE YOUR HAND RAISED.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE TRYING TO TALK ON THIS ITEM OR NOT.

SO I'LL START OFF. MARK ENIC IS A RESIDENT OF THE CITY OF ROWLETT. I BELIEVE HAS DONE AN INCREDIBLE JOB AS A BOARD REPRESENTATIVE FOR OUR COMMUNITY.

VERY ENGAGED AND ACCESSIBLE AND RESPONSIVE ANY TIME WE HAVE HAD ISSUES WITH OR CONCERNS WITH DART.

VERY ACCESSIBLE TO US. THERE'S BEEN SOME GOOD THRONGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED IN THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS FOR THE CITY OF ROWLETT WITH DART AND WHETHER THOSE WERE HIS DOING OR NOT, YOU KNOW, I CAN MAKE A PHONE CALL TO MARK AND GO THIS IS WHAT WE NEED AND HE'LL SUPPORT US ALL THE WAY AND I THINK ANYBODY ON THIS COUNCIL SHOULD FEEL FREE TO DO THAT AT ANY TIME ALSO.

SO I AM VERY, VERY SUPPORTIVE OF MARK BEING OUR DART REPRESENTATIVE. I'LL OPEN IT UP FOR ANY COMMENTS

AND QUESTIONS. >> I AGREE WITH THAT.

I'M ALL FOR THAT.

>> I DON'T SEE ANYBODY'S HAND RAISED SO I GUESS I'LL TAKE A

MOTION >> I'LL MAKE A MOTION TO APPROVE

THE ITEM AS READ. >> THANK YOU, BLAKE.

>> SECOND. >> OKAY. I HAVE A SECOND BY MATT. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR -- ANY DISCUSSION? OKAY. SEEING NONE, ALL THOSE IN FAVOR RAISE YOUR HAND. AND THAT ITEM PASSES 7-0.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THE NEXT ITEM AND LAST ITEM ON

[8B. Consider action to approve a resolution authorizing an interlocal agreement for the Rowlett Police Department to provide detention services and prisoner housing for the Sachse Police Department.]

THE AGENDA IS ITEM 8 B. CONSIDER ACTION TO AUTHORIZE AN INTERLOPER AGREEMENT FOR THE ROWLETT POLICE DEPARTMENT TO

PROVIDE PRISONER HOUSING. >> GOOD EVENING, CHIEF.

I'M GLAD YOU'RE HERE. >> GOOD EVENING.

HAPPY TO BE HERE. >> THAT MEANS THINGS ARE CALM.

>> FOR NOW THANK GOODNESS. PLEASE DON'T JINKS ANYTHING.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. I'LL SAY WE HAD A VERY LENGTHY

WORK SESSION ON THIS WHEN -- >> TWO WEEKS AGO.

>> SO IF THE PUBLIC WANTS TO GO BACK AND LOOK AT THAT WORK SESSION THEY CAN ALSO DO THAT AND YOU'LL GIVE US A SUMMARIZATION HERE IS THAT CORRECT?

>> YES, MA'AM. CORRECT.

>> ALL RIGHT. THANK YOU.

I'M BACK BEFORE YOU TONIGHT WITH THE PROPOSAL FOR THE ROWLETT POLICE DEPARTMENT TO PROVIDE DETENTION SERVICES AND PRISONER HOUSING FOR THE SACHSE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

AFTER SOME CONSIDERABLE CONSIDERATION, I THOUGHT LET'S PUT IT ON INDIVIDUAL AND THAT WAY WE CAN HAVE A LITTLE BETTER DISCUSSION. LITTLE MORE QUESTION AND ANSWER AND HAVE A BETTER CONSIDERATION ABOUT IT -- CONVERSATION ABOUT IT SO HOPEFULLY, THIS WILL ANSWER MOST OF YOUR QUESTIONS.

SO SEVERAL MONTHS AGO, BRIAN SILL VESTER, THE CHIEF OF THE SACHSE POLICE DEPARTMENT APPROACHED US ABOUT HOUSING THEIR PRISONERS SO AFTER SEVERAL MONTHS OF COURSE OF DISCUSSION WE DECIDED TO BRING IT TO BOTH OF OUR COUNCILS.

THE CHIEF SYLVESTER PRESENTED IT TO HIS COUNCIL SEVERAL WEEKS AGO AS DID I. I'M BACK BEFORE YOU TONIGHT TO HOPEFULLY GIVE YOU A LITTLE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

SO LET ME START WITH A LITTLE BACKGROUND AND HISTORY OR JUST A LITTLE INFORMATION REGARDING THE CITY OF SACHSE ITSELF.

IT'S CURRENTLY 25,000 PEOPLE ROUGHLY.

THEY HAVE A TOTAL BUILD OUT POPULATION OF ABOUT 28,000.

[00:15:03]

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO GET JUST A WHOLE LOT BIGGER.

THEY DON'T HAVE A LOT OF LAND THAT THEY CAN ANNEX.

THEY DON'T HAVE A LOT OF ADDITIONAL OR LAND CLOSE TO THEIR CITY THAT THEY'RE ABLE TO GRAB SO THERE'S NOT A WHOLE LOT OF GROWTH OPPORTUNITY FOR SACHSE.

WE DON'T FORESEE THEIR POPULATION OR THEIR NUMBER OF ARREST TEES GROWING ANY TIME SOON.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. SO SACHSE POLICE DEPARTMENT CURRENTLY HAS JUST A COUPLE OF VERY SMALL DETENTION CELLS IN THEIR POLICE DEPARTMENT. THEY MAKE ABOUT 300 ARRESTS PER YEAR SO LESS THAN ONE PER DAY. I REMEMBER THE MATH COMING OUT TO ABOUT .82 ROUGHLY PER WAY. THEY DON'T HAVE ANY FULL TIME OR PART TIME DETENTION STAFF. PRISONERS ARE CURRENTLY MONITORED BY THEIR COMMUNICATIONS OFFICERS.

THEY HAVE A PUBLIC SERVICE OFFICER WHO WHEN THEY ARE WORKING CHECKS ON THEM FROM TIME TO TIME AND THEN THEIR PATROL OFFICE RES AND SUPERVISORS HAVE TO COME IN OFF THE STREET TO KEEP AN EYE ON THEIR PRISONERS. THIS IS NOT AN IDEAL SITUATION FOR THEM AT ALL. SO THROUGH THE CONVERSATION, WE DECIDED WE'D TRY TO WORK SOMETHING OUT.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. A FEW OF THE CONCERNS AND CONSIDERATIONS THAT WERE DISCUSSED AND THAT WE'VE TALKED ABOUT AT LENGTH BETWEEN CHIEF SYLVESTER AND I, THEY HAVE A LOT OF LIABILITY NOT HAVING SOMEBODY MONITOR THEIR PRISONERS FULL TIME WAS NOT A GOOD IDEA. IT JUST HAD TROUBLE WRITTEN ALL OVER IT. SO THEY WERE LOOKING FOR AN OPTION. THEIR PROCESS WAS NOT EFFICIENT AT ALL. THEY HAD TO DO A LOT OF EXTRA WORK. PULL EMPLOYEES AWAY FROM OTHER DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES TO BE ABLE TO CHECK ON PRISONERS.

TEND TO THEM. RELEASE THEM.

BOOK THEM IN. THOSE TYPE THINGS.

SO AS FAR AS THE ROWLETT POLICE DEPARTMENT BEING A VIABLE OPTION COST WAS CONSIDERED. IN ORDER FOR SACHSE TO CHANGE THEIR SITUATION, HIRE DETENTION OFFICERS, IT WAS A CONSIDERABLE COST ESPECIALLY FOR THE SIZE OF THEIR CITY AND THE NUMBER OF EMPLOYEES THEY HAD. IT JUST DID NOT MAKE A LOT OF SENSE. WE ARE VERY CLOSE TO SACHSE.

IT'S ONLY A TEN, 15 MINUTE DRIVE IN TRAFFIC SO AS FAR AS BEING ABLE TO TRAVEL BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN THE TWO DEPARTMENTS, REAL EASY AND SIMPLE. NOT A HUGE ISSUE.

IT'S PRETTY CONVENIENT TO BE HONEST.

WE ALREADY HAVE A FULL SERVICE JAIL.

WE HAVE A FULL SERVICE DETENTION FACILITY THAT'S STAFFED 24 HOURS A DAY EVERY DAY. WE HAVE PLENTY OF SPACE.

WE HAVE PLENTY OF CELLS. WE HAVE A GREAT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SACHSE POLICE DEPARTMENT.

CHIEF SYLVESTER AND I HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR YEARS NOW.

IT'S BEEN AN EASY AND SMOOTH DISCUSSION.

I BELIEVE THERE HAVE NOT REALLY BEEN ANY ROAD BLOCKS BILLIONING ABLE TO DISCUSS THE ADMINISTRATIVE ISSUES, THE OPERATIONAL ISSUES. THEY'VE ALL BEEN PRETTY SIMPLE.

AND OF COURSE WE HAVE FULL SERVICE.

I MEAN, WE DO EVERYTHING FROM BEGINNING TO END IN OUR JAIL.

WE FEED, CLOTHE, IMAGINE ADMINISTRATIONS, PROCESSING, RELEASING, ACCESS TO MEDICAL AND WE ARE MONITORED 24/7 BY NOT ONLY OUR IN HOUSE STAFF BUT THERE ARE CAMERAS IN ALL THE CELLS. OUR COMMUNICATION OFFICERS ARE ABLE TO WATCH THEM WITHOUT AN ISSUE.

NEXT SLIDE. >> SO TO SPEAK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT WE DO HERE IN ROWLETT, WE OVERPULL ABOUT 11 HUNDRED PRISONERS A YEAR. WE HAD JUST A LITTLE BIT OVER THAT IN THE LAST YEAR BUT WE AVERAGE ABOUT 1,100 A YEAR.

WE CAN HOUSE A TOTAL OF 30 PRISONERS AT ANY ONE TIME AND THEN WE BREAK IT DOWN AND HAVE 18 MALE BEDS.

SIX FEMALE BEDS. SIX THAT WE CAN PUT IN A HOLDOVER CELL. SO ULTIMATELY, BASED ON A NUMBER OF PRISONERS THAT WE CURRENTLY HOUSE, THAT WE CURRENTLY ARREST, AN AVERAGE OF AROUND THREE A DAY ROUGHLY, WE DO HAVE THE CAPACITY FOR ADDITIONAL PRISONERS IN OUR FACILITY.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE. SO AS FAR AS OUR CURRENT STAFFING GOES. WE HAVE NINE DETENTION PERSONNEL TOTAL. ONE SUPERVISOR.

ONE ASSISTANT SUPERVISOR. AND SEVEN OFFICERS.

THEY CURRENTLY WORK 12 HOUR SCHEDULES.

WE TRY TO KEEP AT LEAST TWO DETENTION OFFICERS ON DUTY AT ANY ONE TIME. OCCASIONALLY WE HAVE A FEW HOLES. JUST BECAUSE NINE PEOPLE DON'T COVER A FULL WEEK OF 126 HOUR SHIFTS TO OFFICERS PER SHIFT.

[00:20:10]

WHAT WE HAVE BEEN DOING AND FAIRLY REGULARLY AND CONSISTENTLY IS WE HAVE TO GET CREATIVE WITH OUR SCHEDULING AND FILL HOLES AND DO SOME OFFSET AND WE HAVE SOME STAGGERED SCHEDULING JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT THE -- WHAT WE WOULD CONSIDER THE PEAK TIMES MAY BE COVERED.

NO WEEKENDS. COVER HOLIDAYS.

VACATIONS. SICK TIME.

THOSE ISSUES THAT MAY ARISE. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO THE PROPOSAL THAT WE ARE PRESENTING TO YOU THAT WE ARE HOPING FOR APPROVAL TONIGHT IS THAT ROWLETT WOULD HAVE PRISONERS ARRESTED BY THE WHERE POLICE DEPARTMENT WITHIN DALLAS COUNTY. THERE'S A SMALL PORTION OF WHERE WILL SACHSE. -- ADDITIONAL DETENTION OFFICER GIVING US A TOTAL OF TEN. THIS WOULD THIS WOULD ALLOW AT LEAST PARTIALLY OUR SCHEDULING ISSUES SOLVED FOR ALSO HELPING US SIGNIFICANTLY IN COVERING DAYS OFF.

TRAINING. SICK.

VACATION. HOLIDAY.

AND WE'LL DECREASE OUR OVERTIME. WE HAVE DEVELOPED AN INTERLOCAL AGREEMENT. CHIEF SYLVESTER TOOK THE LEAD ON THIS AND BOTH CITY ATTORNEYS HAVE REVIEWED THIS.

IT IS BROKEN UP INTO ONE YEAR TERMS WITH A 90-DAY TERMINATION CLAUSE. I'VE INCLUDED IT WITH THIS AS AN ATTACHMENT IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY.

I HOPE YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW IT AND IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS WE CAN ADDRESS THOSE OF COURSE AND WE'VE ALREADY GHON HIGH HOPES THAT THIS WOULD HAPPEN AND GO FORWARD HAVING DISCUSSIONS BETWEEN OUR TWO DEPARTMENTS REGARDING THE OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES AND PROCESSES AND HOW THOSE WOULD WORK AND SO FAR THE DISCUSSIONS HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY SMOOTH.

>> NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, LAURA. >> THIS IS A TABLE THAT IS ACTUALLY IN THE STAFF REPORT. I WANTED TO INCLUDE IT IN THE PROPOSAL JUST TO GIVE YOU ALL A LITTLE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION.

IT KIND OF BREAKS DOWN WHAT OUR CAPACITY IS.

30 NOW. 30 IN THE FUTURE.

ON AN AVERAGE DAY, JUST OUR ARRESTS ALONE ARE THREE.

IF WE DO PROCEED SO ROUGHLY 20% INCREASE BUT TO BE HONEST, WE'RE NOT EVEN TALKING ACT ONE PERSON PER DAY SO IT DOESN'T EQUATE TO AN INCREASE IN WORKLOAD. OUR OFFICERS ARE ALREADY HERE.

SO ONE ADDITIONAL PRISONER PROCESSING THEM, SECURING THEM SAFE. KEEPING THEM.

RLEASING THEM. DOES NOT ADD A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF WORK TO THEIR DAY. IN AN ARCH YEAR WE NOW HAVE 1,100 INCREASING TO ABOUT 1,400 PERSONS DETAINED.

WE WOULD CURRENTLY HAVE ONE SUPERVISOR.

WE WOULD STILL HAVE ONE MOVING FORWARD.

HE'S EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE WITH THE ADDITIONAL PERSON THAT WE WOULD POSSIBLY BE DETAINING OR HOUSING EACH YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE, LAURA. I WENT IN AND BROKE DOWN SOME OF THE COSTS JUST TO GIVE YOU LITTLE BETTER PICTURES AS TO WHAT THIS IS ULTIMATELY GOING TO BE WORTH AND WHAT IT WOULD COST US AND HOPEFULLY IT'S -- I'M A COP, NOT A MATH TEACHER.

FOR THAT I'M GOING TO APOLOGIZE BUT WHAT WE'RE ASKING IS A PAYMENT OF $55,927 FROM SACHSE FOR YEAR ONE WHICH IS THE COST OF A DETENTION OFFICER INCLUDING SALARY AND BENEFITS.

IF YOU TAKE 55927 AND BREAK IT DOWN PER DAY IN A YEAR, 365 DAYS THAT'S AN AVERAGE COST OF ABOUT $153 PER DAY.

[00:25:25]

WHICH IS SMALL TO SAY THE LEAST. SO $768 DIVIDED BY 365, NUMBER OF DAYS IN A YEAR IS AN INCREASE OF ABOUT $2.10 A DAY THAT WE'RE SPENDING SO WE'RE GETTING $153 PER DAY FROM SACHSE.

SPEND ABOUT $2.10 A DAY ON FOOD AND WE'RE STILL CHARGING THEM ROUGHLY $150.90 PER DAY WHICH IS SIGNIFICANT.

SO ON THIS SLIDE AS WELL I HAVE SOME NOTES I'M GOING TO GO TO MY -- I CAN'T SEE THEM ON THIS SCREEN.

AND I BROKE OUT SOME ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON HERE.

ON THE COST ANALYSIS JUST TO GIVE YOU ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, I CALLED ROCK WELL POLICE DEPARTMENT.

ALL OF THE AGENCIES IN THE ROCK WELL USE ROCK WELL COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE. THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE CHARGES ALL OF THOSE AGENCIES TO USE THAT DEPARTMENT.

ROCK WELL POLICE DEPARTMENT PAYS $75 PER DAY JUST TO GIVE YOU A HEADS UP. WE'RE CHARGING SACHSE DOUBLE THAT AND WE'RE NOT EVEN LOOKING AT ONE PRISONER PER DAY FROM SACHSE. SO THE NUMBERS COULD EVEN BE CONSIDERABLY DIFFERENT. MERCY POLICE DEPARTMENT TAKES ALL THEIR PRISONERS TO COLIN COUNTY AND PAYS $94 PER DAY FOR THEIR PRISONERS. JUST A FEW EXAMPLES THAT I BROKE DOWN ON THE NOTES, IF WE WERE TO CHARGE $50 A DAY THERE WOULD BE ABOUT 15,000 A YEAR. IF WE WERE TO CHARGE $100 A DAY, THERE WOULD BE $30,000 A YEAR. IF WE WERE TO CHARGE $150 A DAY JUST A FLAT DAY RATE PER PRISONER, THAT WOULD COST ABOUT $45,000 AND RIGHT NOW WE'RE AT ROUGHLY $56,000.

SO I THINK THAT WE REALLY ARE GETTING A GREAT BANK FOR THE BUCK AND I THINK THAT IT'S MORE THAN FAIR WHAT WE'RE ASKING SACHSE TO PAY. NEXT SLIDE, PLEASE.

SO IF YOU ALL SEE IT TO APPROVE THIS TONIGHT, THEN CHIEF SYLVESTER WILL TAKE IT TO HIS COUNCIL ON JUNE 14TH.

HE DIDN'T WANT TO TAKE IT BACK TO HIS COUNCIL PRIOR TO YOU SEE IT AGAIN JUST IN CASE THERE WERE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS. SO OF COURSE AFTER JUNE 15TH WE WOULD HAVE TO GET THE AGREEMENT SIGNED.

IT'S ALREADY PREPARED AND REVIEWED AND READY TO GO.

WE WOULD THEN AS DEPARTMENTS FINALIZE OUR PLANS AND PROCEDURES, OUR OPERATIONAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE FUNCTIONS AND RESPONSIBILITIES. WE WOULD HIRE DETENTION OFFICER AND OCTOBER 1ST WE WOULD KICK OFF OUR NEW PARTNERSHIP.

AND I BELIEVE THERE'S ONLY ONE MORE SLIDE AND IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS I'M READY.

>> DO WE DO ONGOING TRAINING FOR OUR DETENTION OFFICERS?

>> WE DO. REGULARLY.

IN EVERY CAPACITY AND PROBABLY AREA THAT YOU CAN THINK OF THEY GET PRETTY SMITH TRAINING IN LAWS AND PROCEDURES.

THEY GET PHYSICAL, YOU KNOW, ARREST TACTICS AND CONTROL TACTICS. THEY GET PEPPER SPRAY.

TASER. I MEAN, YEAH.

THERE'S NO SHORTAGE OF TRAINING FOR THESE OFFICERS.

>> WHAT'S OUR COST ASSOCIATED WITH TRAINING AN OFFICER FOR THE

YEAR. >> FOR DETENTION OFFICERS, VERY LITTLE. WE DO MOST ALL OF IT IN HOUSE BECAUSE THERE ARE VERY FEW AND LITTLE TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES FOR DETENTION OFFICERS IN OTHER LOCATIONS SO WE DO MOST OF IT

ALL IN HOUSE. >> OKAY.

>> BRAVO, CHIEF. >> THANK YOU, MAYOR.

>> I FEEL A LITTLE BIT BETTER THAN LAST TIME.

>> NO, THAT'S NOT MY POINT. NOT MY POINT AT ALL.

YOU MAY HAVE CONVINCED ME TO VOTE FOR THIS.

I'VE ALWAYS -- I AM VERY SUPPORTIVE OF THIS CONCEPTUALLY.

I JUST DIDN'T THINK THAT WE WERE RECEIVING FAIR VALUE FOR WHAT WE WERE PROVIDING. AND I THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE

CHANGED MY MIND HERE. >> I WAS HOPING TO TRY.

>> HIRING COSTS. WHO IS DOING THIS HIRING.

IF WE'RE DOING THE HIRING AND WE'RE COMFORTABLE WITH WHO WE'RE HIRING BUT WE'RE INCURRING HIRING COSTS BUT IF THEY ARE

[00:30:03]

THEY INCUR THE COST. >> WE WOULD DO THE HIRING AND THERE'S VERY LITTLE COST ASSOCIATED BECAUSE IT'S ALL IN HOUSE. WE DON'T CONTRACT OUT FOR ANY TYPE OF BACKGROUND INVESTIGATOR. WE DON'T HAVE TO DO ANY PAID FOR PROCESSES DURING THE HIRING. WE HAVE OUR OWN BACKGROUND INVESTIGATORS AND THEY DO IT ALL IN HOUSE SO WE ACTUALLY DON'T INCUR ANY INITIAL HIRING COSTS THROUGH THE PROCESS.

>> SO I THOUGHT THERE WAS LIKE IF WE HIRED A POLICE OFFICER, THE ALL IN COST IS PRETTY HIGH. WE HAVE POLICE ACADEMY TRAINING AND SUCH. ARE WE IN A DIFFERENT SITUATION

WITH DETENTION OFFICERS >> I'M TRYING TO UNDERSTAND

THAT. >> WE ARE.

THERE IS NOT AN ACADEMY FOR DETENTION OFFICERS. THEY DON'T HAVE TO HAVE A POLYGRAPH AND PSYCHOLOGICAL EXAMINATION.

THEIR EQUIPMENT AND UNIFORMS ARE MINIMAL COMPARED TO POLICE OFFICERS SO WE HAVE SEVERAL ITEMS IN HOUSE ALREADY TO USE 23R THAT EFFECT BUT FOR POLICE OFFICERS EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE.

DETENTION OFFICERS WE CAN DOIT FOR A LOT LESS MONEY.

>> OKAY. >> I JUST WANT TO MAKE A COMMENT. I'M TOTALLY SUPPORTIVE OF THIS.

I THINK IT'S A GREAT DEAL FOR BOTH PARTIES.

ROWLETT IS ALWAYS HAPPY TO HELP A NEIGHBORING COMMUNITY.

THIS DECISION TO ME IS A NO BRAINER.

INTERNSHIPING IT'S A GREAT DEAL. SO I JUST WANTED TO PROVIDE THAT

INPUT. >> THANK YOU.

>> MARTHA. >> YES.

SO I KNOW WE'RE GETTING RIGHT AT 57,000 PER YEAR FROM WHERE FOR THIS DETENTION OFFICER. HOWEVER, WE HAVE HARD COSTS THAT ACTUALLY WOULD EXCEED THAT, I GUESS.

AND SO MY QUESTION IS BECAUSE WE'RE ALWAYS CHARGED WITH LOOKING OUT FOR ROWLETT AND TO BLAKE'S POINT, ABSOLUTELY HAPPY TO HELP OUR SISTER COMMUNITIES IF IT MAKES SENSE FOR US AS A COMMUNITY. AND SO MY QUESTION FOR YOU, CHIEF, IS DO WE NEED THAT ADDITIONAL OFFICER FOR ROWLETT'S

PURPOSES? >> YES, MA'AM, WE DO.

WE ACTUALLY NEED TWO ADDITIONAL OFFICERS.

WE HAVE SUBMITTED A BUDGET REQUEST EACH OF THE LAST TWO YEARS. WE CAN'T GET IT UP TO A HIGH ENOUGH PRIORITY TO WHERE WE'RE ABLE TO DO IT BUT WE COULD USE -- I'M SORRY. WE DO NEED TWO MORE DETENTION OFFICERS. WE DON'T HAVE TO SPEND ANY OVERTIME AND CAN COVER ALL OF THE ASSOCIATED TRAININGS AND TIME OFF AND SICK USE AND HOLIDAY USE AND VACATION USE AND ALL THE BENEFITS INCURRED. NINE DETENTION OFFICERS DO NOT COVER A FULL WORK PERIOD WITH TWO OFFICERS ON AT ANY GIVEN TIME AND 12 HOURS AT A DAY WITHOUT HAVING TO INCUR SOME OVERTIME AND SO, YES, MA'AM, WE DO NEED THEM OURSELVES BADLY.

>> SO THIS IS A WAY FOR US TO COVER THE MAJORITY OF THE COSTS FOR DETENTION OFFICER THAT WE NEED FOR ROWLETT BUT ALSO TAKES CARE OF SACHSE'S NEED FOR A FACILITY.

>> RIGHT. THIS WOULD COVER A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF THE COST. 99% KIND OF THING.

THE REST OF THE COST IS EXTREMELY MINIMAL AND I CAN ABSORB IT INTO MY BUDGET AND WE DON'T KNOW WHAT SOME OF THE COSTS ARE IN THE FIRST YEAR AND IF THEY'RE SIGNIFICANT I'M SURE WE CAN ALWAYS HAVE ANOTHER DISCUSSION REGARDING.

THE FIRST YEAR WE MAY ONLY HAVE 200 PRISONERS AND HAVE FEW ADDITIONAL EXPENSES. SO SOME OF THE UNKNOWNS WE'LL FIGURE OUT IN THE FIRST YEAR AND IF IT'S SIGNIFICANT CHIEF SYLVESTER WON'T HAVE A PROBLEM DISCUSSING IT.

>> DOESN'T LOOK LIKE OUR FOOD COST IS SIGNIFICANT ANYWAY.

YOU KNOW. THE UNKNOWNS THAT I THINK I WOULD BE MORE INTERESTED IN AND PROBABLY NO WAY TO REALLY EVALUATE IT UNTIL WE GET THROUGH A YEAR WOULD BE TRANSPORT COSTS, MENTAL HEALTH EVALUATIONS, PHYSICAL HEALTH EVALUATIONS.

THAT TYPE OF THING THAT WE MAY END UP BEING INVOLVED IN BUT WITH ROWLETT'S NEED FOR THIS OFFICER, I WOULD BE SUPPORTIVE

OF GOING THROUGH WITH THIS. >> THANK YOU.

[00:35:03]

>> I AGREE. I'M VERY SUPPORTIVE.

I JUST HOPE THE SAME RESERVE THAT THE MAYOR AND MARTHA DO IS I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WE'RE COVERING OUR COSTS.

THAT'S WHY I ASKED THE TRAINING QUESTION AND I LIKE THAT IT'S JUST A ONE YEAR DEAL SO THAT WE CAN LOOK AT THAT AND IF THERE'S EXTRA TRAINING THREE THEY CAN HELP PAY FOR, THERE'S WE'RE DOING THE PAYROLL. WE'RE DOING HR SERVICES.

WE'RE DOING ALL OF THAT WHICH I KNOW DOESN'T EQUAL A LOT BUT DOES ADD UP OVER TIME THAT THEY MAY BE ABLE TO OFFSET SOME OF THAT COST BECAUSE I HAVE A FEELING WE'RE PROBABLY SAVING THEM SOME MONEY. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE CURRENTLY PAYING TO DETAIN THEIR PRISONERS ON THE YEARLY BASIS BUT I'M GUESSING THEY'RE SAVING MONEY HERE.

BUT I AM SUPPORTIVE OF IT. I THINK IT HELPS US.

I JUST WANT TO LOOK AT IT EACH YEAR AND I'M ASSUMING IF WE APPROVE ACROSS THE BOARD PAY RAISE FOR OUR EMPLOYEES IN A BUDGET YEAR THAT THEY'LL PICK UP THAT PAY RAISE AND THAT WILL BE NEGOTIATED IN WHEN THOSE CONTRACTS ARE RENEGOTIATED EACH

YEAR. >> WE TALKED ABOUT THIS LAST TIME, CHIEF. YOU MENTIONED MAGISTRATE BUT WE'RE NOT DOING DUTIES FOR THIS RIGHT?

>> WE'RE NOT. THE MAGISTRATE FOR WHERE WILL

HANDLE ALL OF THOSE DUTIES HERE. >> OKAY. THEY'LL COME HERE AND

DO THAT. >> CORRECT OR WE CAN SET UP VIRTUAL LIKE WITH OUR OWN COURT. EITHER WAY.

IT DOESN'T -- IT'S NOT ANY EXTRA WORK OR COST FOR US.

>> OKAY. AND THEN DAVID HOW ARE YOU PROTECTING US FROM A LIABILITY STANDPOINT IF WE HAVE MISBEHAVIOR BY A DETENTION OFFICERER TO A SACHSE. IF WE HAVE A PHYSICAL SEXUAL ABUSE, IF WE HAVE A PRISONER HARMING THEMSELVES.

IF WE HAVE, YOU KNOW, LOTS OF DIFFERENT THINGS.

>> THE WORST CASE SCENARIO IS THE JAIL SUICIDE.

OBVIOUSLY THE FIRST IS -- CAN YOU HEAR ME?

>> SPEAK A LITTLE LOUDER, DAVID. >> SO THE FIRST LEVEL OF CONCERN IS MAKING SURE THAT OUR PERSONNEL ARE ADEQUATELY TRAINED. THE AGREEMENT ITSELF CONTAINS MUTUAL INDEMNIFICATION CLAUSE WHERE EACH PARTY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR OWN NEGLIGENCE PLUS WE HAVE LIABILITY INSURANCE. SO THE LIKELIHOOD OF A SEVERE EVENT THAT MIEMTH POSE SIGNIFICANT SIGNIFICANT LIABILITY IN A WORST CASE SCENARIO IT'S COVERED BY TML BUT WE DON'T EVER NEED TO GO THAT FAR.

THE WORST SITUATIONS THAT JAILS EVER SOMEWHERE THAT GIVE RISE TO LIABILITY ARE JAIL SUICIDES. AND ALL JAIL FACILITIES, ALL HOLDING FACILITIES LIKE OURS HAVE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES IN PLACE THAT MINIMIZE THAT POSSIBILITY.

YOU CAN'T EVER PREVENT IT COMPLETELY IN MOST CIRCUMSTANCES BUT I'M ASSUMING I GUESS THIS IS A QUESTION FOR MIKE IF WE HAVE 24 HOUR SURVEILLANCE IN EACH CELL AND OUR DETENTION OFFICERS ARE TRAINED IN ALL OF THE THINGS THAT THEY NEED TO BE TRAINED IN TO ENSURE THAT NOBODY CAN HURT THEMSELVES IN OUR CELLS.

>> CORRECT, THEY ARE. YES.

>> I'M NOT UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THE TERMS OF THE CONTRACT.

THIS IS A TYPE OF BUSINESS INVOLVED ANYWAY.

SO A PRISONER IS A PRISONER. THE LIKELIHOOD OF INJURY OR LIABILITY IS NO DIFFERENT EXCEPT FOR A SLIGHT INCREASE IN VOLUME OF POPULATION AND THAT'S ABOUT IT.

>> SO WHOSE EMPLOYEE ARE THEY? >> THEY ARE MOURE EMPLOYEE.

CITY OF ROWLETT. ROWLETT POLICE DEPARTMENT.

>> OKAY. SO IF OUR EMPLOYEE DOES SOMETHING TO A SACHSE RESIDENT, SO YOU MADE A STATEMENT EARLIER THAT IN THE ILA, IT SAYS HELP ME WITH THAT WORDING AGAIN.

>> TECHNICALLY IT'S OUR RESPONSIBILITY.

[00:40:12]

NOT SACHSE'S. WE'RE THE ONES WHO ARE HOLDING

THEM. >> IT'S JUST INTRODUCING ANOTHER PARTY INTO THE MIX. YOU KNOW.

WE'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR PRISONERS AND OUR STANDARDS OF CARE ARE ANSWERABLE TO OUR PRISONERS NOW IT'S INTRODUCING A NEW PARTY THAT SACHSE COULD HAVE A PLAY IN THIS.

>> I'M NOT WORRIED ABOUT THEIR ABILITY TO BACK OUT OF THE

CONTRACT >> I UNDERSTAND THAT BUT IF SACHSE HAS -- I CAN'T IMAGINE THAT SACHSE WOULD HAVE SOME RIGHT TO SUE US. UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.

THEY'RE DROPPING PEOPLE OFF. THEY'RE PROVIDING FOR ARRAIGNMENTS AND COVERING MEDICAL ISSUES AND YOU UNDERSTAND THAT OUR JAIL IS WE CALL IT A JAIL BUT REALLY IT'S NOT. IT IS SIMPLY A TEMPORARY HOLDING FACILITY. AND THESE ARE BY AND LARGE SUSPECTS CLUE R ACCUSED OF LOW LEVEL CRIMINAL OFFENSES, NOT SERIOUS CRIMES. THOSE ARE TAKEN DIRECTLY TO THE COUNTY. SO THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO DON'T PAY THEIR TRAFFIC TICKETS. THINGS LIKE THAT.

>> IF OUR DETENTION OFFICERS ARE TRAINED AND SUPERVISED, THEY FOLLOW PROPER PROTOCOL, I CAN'T IMAGINE THAT SACHSE WOULD HAVE ANY CLAIM AGAINST US FOR THAT THIRD PARTY WOULD HAVE ANY CREATE ANY ADDITIONAL LIABILITIES THAT WE DON'T

ALREADY OTHERWISE ASSUME. >> AND TML DOESN'T INCREASE

OUR -- >> I WOULD NEED TO VEER IDENTIFY THAT TO BE SURE. I'LL TELL YOU NO.

>> BUT IF WE'RE SAYING OUR LEGAL RISK IS COVERED BY TML, LET'S MAKE SURE THEY DON'T HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THIS.

>> I CAN VERIFY THAT. >> DOESN'T INCREASE OUR PREMIUMS OR NEGATE OUR COVERAGE IF THERE'S SOME INCIDENT THAT OUR EMPLOYEE HAS AGAINST ANOTHER CITY.

LET'S JUST MAKE SURE. IT WOULDN'T FLE GAIT COVERAGE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. I CAN VERIFY THAT.

IT'S REALLY KIND OF IMPORTANT HAVING A JAIL FACILITY IS A HIGH CAPITAL EXPENSE AND A LOT OF SFIS IN DENTON COUNTY ARE SWEATING BECAUSE SEVERAL YEARS AGO THE COUNTY REFUSED TO TAKE -- SO THEY DON'T EVEN ARREST ANYMORE.

>> IT'S THE SAME BUT OPPOSITE.

>> IT'S THE SAME BUT NOT. IT'S PRETTY MUCH THE SAME.
