4. OLD BUSINESS:
A. FINAL RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE TASK FORCE ON GOOD GOVERNMENT Recommendation of Task Force on Good Government: It is recommended that the City Council: (A) Concur with the Task Force on Good Government's proposed changes to the City Charter, Article XVII, Taxpayer Protection Act, as set forth in the "redline" text shown on Exhibit 1 of the agenda report to accomplish the following: (1) Non-profits - The ban on receiving personal or campaign advantages should not apply to officers and directors from 501 (c)(3), (4), and (6) organizations (other than officers and directors of political action committees or who control political action committees controlled by such organizations), except that disclosure of such persons would continue to be required. Section 1703 (b)(2). (2) Contracts with the City - The TPA should be amended so that its provisions also cover persons who are bidding on or negotiating for contracts that are worth over $25,000 except those who are bidding on or receiving low bid contracts. Section 1704 (c). (3) Contribution Limitations - The TPA should be amended to apply contribution limits to Pasadena races: $1,000 per election for City Council and $2,000 per election for Mayor, adjusted for cost of living increases every two years, rounded off to the nearest $100. Section 1706.5. (4) Ballot Measure Committees - The TPA should also cover Pasadena public officials who raise money for local ballot measure committees that the official controls. Section 1703 (c) (3). (5) Outside Election Races - The TPA should only apply to officials and candidates in city races and not elections outside of Pasadena. Section 1703 (c)(3). (6) Enforcement - The City should authorize the City Attorney to bring criminal actions except in cases involving elected City officials in which case the City Attorney should refer the complaint to the L.A. County District Attorney's office. The current law that allows citizens to bring private civil actions should not be changed. Section 1707 (a) and (c). (7) Subpoena Power - The TPA should give subpoena authority to the City Attorney and where referrals are made to it, the L.A. County District Attorney. Section 1707 (d). (8) Agencies Outside the City - The TPA should only apply to Councilmembers or other City officials serving on outside boards as City representatives (e.g., the Burbank Airport Authority), if these other agencies have reporting requirements allowing compliance with the TPA. Section 1704 (b). (9) Thresholds - The thresholds for determining which decisions should be affected by the TPA should be the same (over $25,000) in most instances. The only exceptions would be the grant of a tax abatement, exception or benefit, which should remain at over $5,000 in a twelve-month period and awarding of franchises worth over $50,000 in gross receipts. The thresholds should be adjusted for cost of living increases every five years and rounded off to the nearest $1,000. Section 1703 (a) (7) and (9). (10) Disclosure Implementation - The files of the City listing those persons who would be prohibited from providing personal advantages to City officials who have made a decision benefitting them should be posted on the internet so that the records are available to the public in an easy-to-use and timely manner. Section 1705 (c). (11) Cumulation - The TPA should eliminate the need to cumulate public benefits in amounts under $5,000 unless it is clear that the amounts will meet or exceed the thresholds. Section 1703 (a) (8). (12) Franchises - The TPA should be clarified to require that the franchise has to be awarded by the City. Section 1703 (a) (4). (B) It is further recommended that the City Council cause to be placed on the ballot at the next available city-wide election the Task Force on Good Government's proposed changes to the City Charter, Article XVII, Taxpayer Protection Amendment. Recommendations of the Legislative Policy Committee: At a special meeting held on June 7, 2006, the Legislative Policy Committee took straw poll votes on the recommendations of the Task Force, as follows: The Committee recommends support of all of the Task Force recommendations. The Committee's straw poll votes were unanimous on Task Force Recommendations (2) Contracts with the City; (4) Ballot Measure Committees; (5) Outside Election Races; (6) Enforcement; (7) Subpoena Power; (8) Agencies Outside the City; (9) Thresholds; (10) Disclosure Implementation; (11) Cumulation; and (12) Franchises. There was majority consensus of the Committee to recommend support of Task Force Recommendations (1) Non-Profits and (3) Contribution Limits, with Councilmember Holden objecting. The following are actions of the Committee pertaining to the issues referenced in the City Attorney's June 7, 2006 memorandum entitled "Proposed General Changes to TPA" (Attachment A of City Clerk's cover memorandum): Pre-Contract Black Out Period There was unanimous consensus of the Committee to not delete the words "person or" (as recommended by the City Attorney) in proposed Charter language for Section 1704 (c), with the first sentence to remain as proposed by the Task Force, as follows: "No person or entity who bids on a contract with the City, or enters . . . ." There was also unanimous consensus of the Committee to replace the City Attorney's proposed new second sentence for said section ("Excluded from this prohibition are all employees or individual members of the entity.") with the following replacement sentence: "The prohibition on campaign contributions set forth in the preceding sentence shall also apply to officers, directors, trustees and 10% shareholders of the entity bidding on a contract with the City, but shall not apply to employees of the entity who are not officers, directors, trustees or 10% shareholders thereof." Application of the TPA to Non-Incumbent Candidates There was unanimous consensus of the Committee to have no recommendation on applying the TPA to non-incumbents, and allow the full Council to address the issue. Restrictions on Employees There was unanimous consensus of the Committee to recommend that Section 1704 of the TPA be amended, with the amendment to apply to employees only (and not elected officials or appointed officials serving on advisory bodies), to keep the current one-year restriction after the official's departure from office, but change the current five-year restriction to two years from the date the official (employee) approves the public benefit. Replacing Ban With a Contribution Cap There was majority consensus of the Committee (Chair Bogaard and Councilmember Tyler) to recommend that there be no change to the current total ban on campaign contributions that may be given by public benefit recipients. (Councilmember Holden objected, and voiced support for a $250 campaign contribution cap.) The following are actions of the Committee pertaining to issues referenced in the City Attorney's June 7, 2006 memorandum entitled "Proposed Changes to TPA As Applied to Land Use Matters" (Attachment B of City Clerk's cover memorandum) and City Attorney's February 23, 2006 memorandum entitled "Task Force on Good Government's Final Recommendations" (attached to Task Force's final report): Administrative Burden of TPA as Applied to Land Use Matters There was unanimous consensus of the Committee to recommend that the extent of the TPA's application to land use decisions be addressed through administrative guidelines. Authority to Issue Guidelines and Interpretations There was unanimous consensus of the Committee to recommend approval of the City Attorney's recommendation (see City Attorney's memorandum dated February 23, 2006, attached to the Task Force's final report) to amend Section 1707 (e) with specific Charter language to grant authority to the City to adopt guidelines for implementation of the TPA that are consistent with the findings and declarations set forth in Section 1702 of the TPA. Task Force Recommendation to Place Recommendations on the Next Available City-wide Election The Committee acknowledged that should the City Council reach a conclusion on these approaches by the end of July 2006, these recommendations could be placed on the November 7, 2006 ballot for consideration by the voters. 4097k FINAL REPORT Part 1 5389k FINAL REPORT Part 2 5731k FINAL REPORT Part 3 4323k
