Subject: Status Report as of February 1, 2017
This report provides a brief summary of the status of recommendations received by the Board of Supervisors to improve the County’s custody operations and facilities. Review and analysis of these recommendations was assigned to the Finance and Government Operations Committee, which commenced special hearings to consider the recommendations on August 26, 2016. The prior monthly report as of January 1, 2017 listed 644 recommendations that had been received by the Board and were under consideration by the Finance and Government Operations Committee (“Committee”). However, as a result of additional review and analysis of the 644 recommendations by the Office of the County Executive and a legal review and analysis by the County Counsel, 13 of the 644 recommendations were deemed to not be recommendations, but observations or future planned actions, and eight (8) recommendations were determined by Counsel to be illegal under current law. Consequently, these 21 recommendations were removed from consideration by the Committee, leaving a total of 623 unduplicated recommendations before the Finance and Government Operations Committee.
