NOT ON THIS ON ON THE ON I DO NEED TO JUMP IN FROM THE ADMINISTRATION’S POINT OF VIEW AT THE AT THE VERY END OF THIS COMMENT I’M SORRY, MAYOR >> WELL, I’M DONE WITH MINE >> OKAY WE DID IT JUST WHILE THERE’S A MOTION OUT AND I’M SORRY I WAS I WAS A QUICK NOT QUICK ENOUGH TO JUMP IN BEFORE THE ADMINISTRATION DOES HAVE AN EARLY CONSIDERATION FORM OUT SO I DON’T KNOW IF THAT REACHED ALL OF YOU BUT IF TONI HAS THE ABILITY TO SHARE THAT WE ARE RECOMMENDING A YELLOW LIGHT

SEVERAL OF THESE THINGS WOULD ACTUALLY NEED TO BE DIRECTED TO THE MEAT AND CONFER PROCESS AND THE OTHERS WOULD REQUIRE A FAIRLY SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF POLICY WORK, SOME OF WHICH MIGHT BE ALIGNED WITH SOME OF THE POWERED BY PEOPLE 2.0 AND THE RETURN TO THE WORKPLACE EFFORTS THAT EOC WILL BE WORKING THROUGH AND COMING TO COUNCIL WITHIN 2021 >> BUT NOTHING SPECIFICALLY AS OF YET WITHIN THOSE WORK PLANS AND SO JOHN BRISTOW FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION IS WITH US FOR ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS RELATED TO SPECIFIC POLICIES BUT THE ADMINISTRATION IS RECOMMENDING THE YELLOW LIGHT >> THANKS K SO LEE, YOU SAID THAT THERE WERE SOME OF THE ELEMENTS THAT COULD BE UNDERTAKEN NOW FOR THE WHOLE MEMO TO GO TO PRIORITY >> I WOULD SUGGEST AT THIS POINT THAT THE ENTIRE MEMORANDUM BE PUT TOWARDS FORTH IN PRIORITY SETTING WITH THAT SAID, AS WE COME FORWARD WITH RETURNED TO THE WORKPLACE AND SOME POWERED BY TO PUT 2.0 INITIATIVES THERE COULD BE ELEMENTS IN THERE THAT THIS MEMO COULD ADDRESS OR GIVE DIRECTION ON AND SO I WOULD ASK FOR FOR FLEXIBILITY FOR THE ADMINISTRATION TO HIGHLIGHT THOSE >> AND REFERENCE BACK TO THIS IF APPROPRIATE IF IF IT GOES THAT ROUTE >> THANK YOU COUNCIL MEMBER CAMERAS YEAH, I HAVE TO TELL YOU AS A PERSON WHO HAS YOUNG KIDS AT HOME AND IN IT’S BEEN REALLY DETRIMENTAL ON ON ON THEIR PSYCHOLOGY I HAVE TO SAY THEY’RE NOT SOCIALIZING DEPRESSION IS THERE? I DON’T THINK THAT THIS IS THE ANSWER FOR EVERYONE >> AND I WANT TO CAUTION AS THE MAYOR HAS I ACTUALLY MISSED MY COLLEAGUES I MISS SITTING NEXT TO MY COLLEAGUES AT WORK I THINK YEAH ABSOLUTELY AND TO IT BUT I DO AGREE THAT, YOU KNOW, A MODELS WE SHOULD BE STRIVING FOR MORE WORK AT HOME IT’S MORE EFFICIENT BUT IT’S NOT IT’S NOT IT’S NOT REALLY SHOULDN’T WE SHOULDN’T BE USING IT AS A 100 PERCENT MODEL >> SO THAT IS THE CURRENT MOTION TO TAKE IT TO PRIORITY SETTING OR IS IT JUST A TICKET TO THE CITY COUNCIL? >> WELL, THE MEMO WAS TO GIVE DIRECTION FIRST STAFF TO EVALUATE IT AS NEEDED ALL THE ITEMS IN THE MEMO LEADS COMING BACK AND SAYING THAT THIS SHOULD BE REFERRED OVER TO PRIORITY SETTING SO HELP ME OUT THE DOOR I AM ASSUMING THAT WE WOULD NEED TO MODIFY THE MOTION TO DIRECT STAFFED OR DIRECTED TO PRIORITY SETTING THAT WOULD THAT’S WHAT THE ADMINISTRATION IS REQUESTING AND THAT’S THE LEVEL THAT THEY HAVE THEIR MEMO LOW LEVEL >> I THINK THAT LISA ON THIS CALL HAS BEEN PUT TRYING TO PUT UP HER HAND PHYSICALLY BUT THERE’S A LITTLE BUTTON THAT YOU COULD RAISE YOUR HAND WITH A LITTLE BLUE HAND IF YOU WANT TO SPEAK AT LEAST I CAN SEE YOUR HAIR RAISE BACK TO IF YOU WANT TO >> SHE’S RELATED >> HI >> YEAH, HI I’M LISA FASANO I’M WITH THE BAY AREA AIR DISTRICT AND WHAT THIS CUT THE COMMUTE PLEDGE IS IT’S A VOLUNTARY COMMITMENT THAT ENTITIES OR THE CITY OF SAN JOSE, FOR INSTANCE WOULD LOOK AT ALLOWING EITHER THE WORKFORCE TO WORK FROM HOME >> TWENTY FIVE PERCENT OF THE TIME OR LET 25 PERCENT OF YOUR WORKFORCE WORK FROM HOME WHERE IT WORKS WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK AND AGAIN, IT’S A VOLUNTARY PLEDGE WE’RE LOOKING AT WAYS THAT WE CAN REALLY GAIN FROM THE LEARNINGS THAT WE’RE ALL GETTING FROM THIS WORK AND HOME WORK AT HOME ENVIRONMENT ALL WORKING FROM HOME RIGHT NOW WE’VE SEEN THE REDUCTION IN TRAFFIC WE’VE SEEN THE REDUCTION IN AIR POLLUTION MAKES EXCEPT FOR THE FIRES BUT WE’VE SEEN WE’VE SEEN THE POSITIVE RESULTS THAT WE WANT AND SO WE WANT EMPLOYERS TO THINK ABOUT THIS AND THINK ABOUT ESTABLISHING A MORE ROBUST WORK AT HOME POLICY IN THEIR EMPLOYEE HANDBOOKS MOVING FORWARD AND WE’RE LOOKING AT AMENDING OUR CUT I MEAN OUR COMMUTER BENEFITS RULE TO MAKE TELEWORK A REMOTE WORK, A MORE PROMINENT PIECE OF THE PUZZLE IN THE TOOLBOX OF OF ITEMS THAT AN EMPLOYER COULD CHOOSE IN SIGNING UP FOR THE COMMUTER BENEFITS PROGRAM AND OFFERING VARIOUS COMMUTER BENEFITS TO THEIR EMPLOYEES >> SO AGAIN THE CUT THE COMMUTE PLEDGED THAT THAT YOU HAVE BEFORE TODAY IS JUST A

VOLUNTARY ACTION IT’S VOLUNTARY PLEDGE AND IT SHOWS YOUR SUPPORT FOR TRYING TO LOOK AT HOW WE CAN REDUCE MAINLY SINGLE OCCUPANCY VEHICLES FROM OUR ROADWAYS WHICH ARE THE PRIMARY SOURCES OF AIR POLLUTION AND GREENHOUSE GASES THANK YOU, LISA COUNCIL CAMERAS DID YOU I MEAN THE OTHER COMMENTS INPUT NOTHING >> NOTHING EXCEPT THAT I DON’T KNOW WHAT WITH THE CURRENT MOTION IT LOOKS LIKE IT’LL GO TO CITY COUNCIL UNLESS >> WELL, THAT’S OCCURRING CURRENT MOTION COUNCIL MEMBER MIGHT DECIDE TO MODIFY OUR MOTION TO DIRECT ITS PRIORITY SETTING NO, NOT QUITE THERE YET THANK YOU FOR THAT, KIMBERLY >> COUNCIL MEMBER IS THANK YOU VICE MAYOR YOU KNOW I AM A MOM OF A FIVE YEAR OLD AND YOU KNOW, HALF OF MY DAY IS I THINK I’M A FAIR LUNCH LADY PRETTY GOOD LUNCH LADY GUARD DUTY AND A TEACHER’S ASSISTANT DO DO I WANT TO BE ABSOLUTELY NOT MY HAT’S OFF TO ALL THOSE WHO WHO WORK WITH OUR CHILDREN EVERY SINGLE DAY AND DO THIS WORK BECAUSE IT’S THEIR PASSION THERE IS A LOT OF BENEFIT I THINK TO PARENTS TO HAVE THEIR CHILD TO HAVE SOME OF THIS REMOTE WORK ESPECIALLY FOR FOR THOSE WHO HAVE YOUNGER CHILDREN SO MY MY MY KIDDO GOES HALF DAY THAT’S TYPICALLY VERY STANDARD FOR KINDERGARTEN AND YOU KNOW, THERE’S NOT A LOT OF FAMILIES WHO CAN WORK ONLY HALF DAY >> SO YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT CHILDCARE AND CHILD CARE >> SECOND MORTGAGE IS THE SECOND MOST EXPENSIVE ITEM ON YOUR BUDGET >> AND SO FOR ME I KNOW THAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO SEE OUR CHILDREN HOME FOREVER WE’RE GONNA SEE THEM MAYBE ANOTHER HALF YEAR, MAYBE A WHOLE YEAR I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT WOULD LOOK LIKE >> I SURELY WORRY ABOUT THE SOCIAL EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING OF MY CHILDREN BECAUSE PART OF GROWING UP AND PART OF LEARNING IS SOCIALIZING WITH OTHERS THAT’S AN IMPORTANT ASPECT OF DEVELOPMENT AND AN END FOR THEIR FOR THEIR SAKE >> I WANT THEM BACK IN SCHOOL WITH OTHERS BUT THAT STILL LEAVES THE QUESTION ABOUT WHAT SHOULD WE BE DOING IN TERMS OF WORKING FROM HOME? AND DO WE SEE THE BENEFIT OF WORKING FROM HOME ONE OR TWO DAYS? I WE’RE ASKING FOR US TO WORK 40 HOURS A WEEK AWAY FROM AWAY FROM THE OFFICE AND AT HOME I THINK THE ATTEMPT TO HAVE 25 PERCENT WHICH MEANS ABOUT ONE OR TWO DAYS WHICH I THINK NORMALLY YOU WOULD PROBABLY NEED TO DO SOME OF THE WORK THAT DOESN’T INVOLVE MEETINGS ONSITE MEETINGS, MEETINGS WITH OTHER PEOPLE OR OFF SITE MEETINGS >> AND IT’S SOMETHING THAT’S EASY SO SAY IF MY MY KIDDO WHO’S A KINDERGARTEN WOULD COME HOME AT 12 THAT MEANS I CAN GO PICK HER UP INSTEAD OF HAVING A CHILD CARE PROVIDER AND THAT COSTS COMING OUT OF MY POCKET PLUS I DON’T I DON’T USE MY MY VEHICLE TO GET TO WORK COME BACK TO WORK TO GO TO THE SCHOOL TO TO PICK UP MY DAUGHTER AND THEN GO BACK AND HAVE THAT WHOLE HOT MESS HAPPEN OUT IN OUR IN OUR PUBLIC SETTINGS IN OUR PUBLIC STREETS AND SO SO TO ME I STILL SEE THE BENEFIT OF PUTTING THIS IN FRONT OF OUR COUNCIL COLLEAGUES AS A COMMITMENT ON A LONG TERM >> RIGHT NOW I KNOW THAT EVERYBODY WE’RE ALL YEARNING TO CONNECT WITH ONE ANOTHER AND TO BE BACK IN SOME LEVEL OF NORMALCY AND I THINK WE’RE WE’RE PROBABLY GETTING CLOSER TO THAT HOPEFULLY >> YOU KNOW, I’M GOING TO KNOCK ON WOOD BUT BUT THIS IS REALLY I THINK A LONG TERM COMMITMENT >> AS MANY PARENTS FEEL AND I THINK IT HAS TO DO WITH BEING A PARENT OF A MAYBE A YOUNGER CHILD >> BUT I WON’T EXCLUDE THE PARENTS WHO ARE OLDER CHILDREN BUT CERTAINLY THERE IS A REQUIREMENT TO BE MORE INVOLVED IN THAT >> THE EDUCATION OF OUR CHILDREN AS THEY GET AS THEY GO BEYOND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WE’RE A LITTLE BIT MORE HANDS OFF AND SO I THINK THIS GIVES AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PARENTS TO GET BACK INTO OUR CHILDREN’S EDUCATION AND SOCIAL WELL-BEING >> POST PANDEMIC MIND YOU RIGHT NOW WE’RE ALL WORKING WITH THE LIMITATIONS AND SO ANYWAYS I JUST SEE THAT THERE’S SO MUCH BENEFIT TO THIS AND THAT PUTTING THIS ON PRIORITY SETTING INSTEAD OF JUST HAVING A COLLECTIVE AGREEMENT IN FRONT

WITH OUR COLLEAGUES TO HAVE THIS COMMITMENT AND HOPEFULLY ARE ARE OUR STAFF AS AS THINGS ONLINE CAN TAKE A LOOK IN, HAVE A BETTER ANALYSIS OF THIS >> BUT I KNOW THAT OUR H.R DEPARTMENT ALREADY OFFERS REMOTE WORK AND THAT YOU CAN WORK THIS OUT WITH AN IMMEDIATE SUPERVISOR I JUST THINK WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS IS NORMALIZE IT AND THAT’S WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT WITH THE BIKE PLANT ONCE WE NORMALIZE BIKING TO WORK WE’RE GOING TO SEE A LOT MORE PEOPLE ON THE STREETS AND SO I THINK THIS IS THE SAME IN THE SAME SPIRIT OF NORMALIZING WORKING FROM HOME AND THAT THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH WORKING FROM HOME IN ESPECIALLY IF YOU’RE A PARENT THAT THERE’S SOME ADDED BONUS THERE AND SO I’D LIKE TO SEE IT IN FRONT OF THE COUNCIL TO HAVE A EARLY CONVERSATION NOW WHETHER IT GETS TO THE POINT WHERE WE NEED TO PUT THIS ON PRIORITY SETTINGS, SO BE IT BUT AT THE INITIAL STAGE I’D LOVE TO HAVE IT IN FRONT OF OUR OF OUR COLLEAGUES >> THANK YOU >> COUNCIL MEMBER ARENAS POOL WANT TO SPEAK ON THIS AND I WAS GOING TO SPEAK TO BUT I LEARNED A LESSON NEVER HAVE ONE OF YOUR COLLEAGUES SPEAK ON A WHAT ARE YOUR MEMOS BEFORE YOU DO?
