7. PUBLIC PRESENTATION

Danny Garza, Mexican American Political Association (MAPA), asked VTA to address discrimination and discipline issues recently brought to MAPA’s attention.  Mr. Garza noted MAPA’s support for the LA RAZA Round Table and their concerns relating to proper hiring and wage issues. He noted that VTA contractors must be truthful in minority documentation especially concerning qualified minority businesses as well as their employment and wage documentation.

Paul Guerrero, LA RAZA Round Table, urged VTA Board of Directors to conduct an independent audit by an outside source to determine if VTA is complying with assurances presented to the Department of Transportation (DOT) when it applied for federal grants. He noted LA RAZA Round Table’s concerns that: 1) VTA continues to receive DOT grants and funding, 2) Disadvantaged Business Entrepreneurs (DBEs) get their fare share of work on VTA projects, and 3) local minority and low income communities voices be heard when VTA makes planning decisions.  He expressed concern that VTA is spending tax dollars for DBE certification when Caltrain will provide certification at no cost.  

Mr. Guerrero expressed concern that VTA is not enforcing federal prompt pay requirements.

Armando Quesada, VTA DBE Subcontractor, stated that the prime contractor has not followed specifications requiring prompt pay and urged the VTA Board of Directors to help ensure that DBE’s are paid according to specifications as they are expected to perform according to the specifications.

Eugene Bradley, Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority Riders Union, noted the recent increase in gas prices and expressed concern that VTA has not made an effort to replace previously cut services to accommodate potential new ridership that may result from the increase in gas prices.

REGULAR AGENDA

  
12.

Amendment of Policy Advisory Bylaws and VTA Administrative Code

Board Member Kniss noted that she did not have all of the history on PAC’s voting requirements and although she supported portions of the recommendation she expressed opposition to the proposed requirement that a majority of the membership is necessary to pass a motion and asked that the recommendation be split creating a separate recommendation regarding the voting requirement.   She stated that the current requirement of a majority of those present to pass a motion is working well. 

Chairperson Pirzynski requested an explanation of the change from the original voting requirement (a majority of the membership)   to the proposed voting requirement (a majority of those present).   Carolyn M. Gonot, Chief Development Officer, responded that the change occurred in 2002 and was due to poor PAC attendance and noted that PAC attendance has greatly improved.

Aaron Morrow, Interested Citizen, expressed support for the Committees’ desire to maintain the current requirement of a majority of those present to pass a motion.

Alternate Board Member Breene Kerr, addressing the Board as a PAC Member, expressed opposition   to a change to the current voting requirement.   He noted that PAC has had a positive impact on a number of issues.  Mr. Kerr expressed concern that the attempt to change the requirement is intended to make it more difficult for PAC to pass motions and urged the Board to accept the motion with the exception of the voting requirement portion.

Steve Glickman, PAC Vice Chairperson, speaking on behalf of PAC, reported that it is the desire of the majority of PAC members to retain the current voting requirement of a majority of those present   to pass a motion. 

Steve Glickman, PAC Vice Chairperson, regarding his individual opinion, expressed concern that in some instances when barely a quorum was present and the vote was close the result of that vote was reported as the position of PAC as a whole.    Mr. Glickman noted   the importance of taking an additional degree of care to assure that when PAC takes a position it is reflective of the true majority.

Alternate Board Member Dennis Kennedy, addressing the Board as a PAC Member, requested PAC be allowed to continue with the current requirement of a simple majority of those present to pass a vote.

Alternate Board Member Delores Sandoval, addressing the Board as a PAC Member, urged the Board of Directors to consider retaining the current PAC voting standards.

Upon query by Board Member Kniss, Board Member Gonzales declined the request to have the voting requirement portion of the staff recommendation stand alone as a separate motion.

Board Member Gonzales stressed that the Board of Directors’ goal is to strengthen the role of PAC and have the votes be representative of all the cities rather than a small group of the cities.

M/S/C (Gonzales/Matthews) on a roll call vote of 7 ayes to 5 nays to 0 abstentions to adopt Resolution No. 05.03.03 amending the Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) Bylaws including amendments: 1) requested by the Board of Directors to require a vote of the majority of the total membership to pass an item (which requires the Board to rescind its December 12, 2002 action approving an amendment to permit a majority of the quorum to pass an item), 2) requested by the Board of Directors to codify the responsibility of the PAC chairperson to integrate the PAC Work Plan with the objectives of the VTA Board, 3) requested by PAC to revise its specific duties and to modify how items may be placed on the agenda; and 4) to correct minor technical matters. Also, amend the VTA Administrative Code, as necessary, to reflect these modifications.  Members Campos, Cortese, Gonzales, Matthews, Williams, Vice Chairperson Chavez, and Chairperson Pirzynski supported the motion.  Members Casas, Chu, Gage, Kniss and Livengood opposed the motion.
