FY2009 LAST CDBG REPROGRAMMING HEARING

Under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, cities such as San Diego, are provided with an opportunity to implement community improvement programs and/or projects not otherwise possible under the constraints of the regular City budget. In order to receive the funding, the City must submit an Action Plan that consists of proposed projects to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for FY 2010 (July 1, 2009 - June 30, 2010) by May 15, 2009. The City currently receives Federal entitlement grants for: Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA), Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG), Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), and the HOME Investment Partnership Programs (HOME).
To determine which CDBG activities will best meet the needs of the San Diego community, City officials believe it is important to obtain input from residents, non-profit organizations and others on how these funds should be spent. The City of San Diego therefore extends an invitation to the community to obtain and submit CDBG project proposals to the CDBG Office. CDBG applications will be made available November 3, 2008, and completed applications with project proposals are due to the CDBG Office by 5:00 p.m. on December 17, 2008.

The City welcomes and encourages citizen participation in the establishment and implementation of our thirty-fifth CDBG Program year.
The City estimates it will receive approximately $13.4 million in CDBG funds for FY 2010. In order to receive the funding, the City must submit a list of proposed projects/programs, which are operated by non-profit organizations and designed to meet one or more of the following national objectives:
1) Benefit a majority of low/moderate income residents; and/or
2) Alleviate an immediate and serious threat to the health and/or welfare of the community when no other source of funding is available; and/or
3) Serve to prevent or eliminate conditions of slum and blight.
Organizations must keep the goals of the City and the national objectives in mind when preparing their proposals. For more information on the City's Consolidated Plan's priorities and goals, please visit the San Diego Housing Commission at: http://www.sdhc.org/giaboutus6.shtml.
The City's CDBG office anticipates holding two community meetings on the proposed CDBG projects in January 2009. The City Council will hold a Public Hearing on Tuesday, February 24, 2009 to finalize the adoption of funding allocations. Please look in this newspaper two weeks prior to the meeting dates for the specific times of the meetings.

CITY OF SAN DIEGO
ORDINANCE NUMBER O-19795 (NEW SERIES)
--
AN ORDINANCE AMENDING CHAPTER 2, ARTICLE 7, DIVISION 29 OF THE SAN DIEGO MUNICIPAL CODE BY AMENDING SECTIONS 27.2903, 27.2911, 27.2912, 27.2916, 27.2917, 27.2924, 27.2925, 27.2930, 27.2935, 27.2936, 27.2937, 27.2938, 27.2939, 27.2945, AND 27.2960; RETITLING AND AMENDING SECTIONS 27.2965, 27.2966, 27.2967, 27.2968, AND 27.2969; AND AMENDING SECTION 27.2971, RELATING TO THE CITY OF SAN DIEGO ELECTION CAMPAIGN CONTROL ORDINANCE; AND AMENDING CHAPTER 2, ARTICLE 7, DIVISION 40 OF THE SAN DIEGO MUNICIPAL CODE BY AMENDING SECTION 27.4002, RELATING TO CAMPAIGN FUNDRAISING DISCLOSURES UNDER THE CITY'S MUNICIPAL LOBBYING ORDINANCE.

This ordinance makes changes to Chapter 2, Article 7, Division 29 of the San Diego Municipal Code, which contains the City's Election Campaign Control Ordinance [ECCO]. It makes a number of substantive changes to ECCO, particularly in the area of contribution limits, legal defense funds, telephone communications, and pre-election campaign filing requirements.
Under the ordinance, contribution limits will be raised to $500 per candidate per election. The same limit will apply to district and citywide elections. Contribution limits will continue to be subject to biennial indexing to reflect changes in the Consumer Price Index for San Diego, but indexing will not take place until 2011, two years after this ordinance goes into effect.
This ordinance imposes an additional pre-election campaign filing requirement on City candidate committees. Under the ordinance, a City candidate committee would be required to file a pre-election statement on the Friday before a Tuesday election, covering the period through the Thursday before the election.
With regard to a candidate's solicitation and acceptance of funds to defray the costs of responding to an audit or a legal proceeding, this ordinance will make ECCO consistent with recently adopted Government Code section 85304.5 and Fair Political Practices Commission [FPPC] Regulation 18530.45. State law now allows candidates and elected officeholders to maintain a second committee and bank account for audit and legal defense purposes. This ordinance amends ECCO to recognize this ability by creating a new definition for “professional expense committees” and imposing rules on such committees that are consistent with the establishment procedures, recordkeeping obligations, and reporting requirements that exist in state law. This ordinance makes a non-substantive change by generally referring to these funds as “professional expense funds” instead of “legal defense funds,” but also incorporates the state law requirement that the formal name of the committee include the words “legal defense fund” when identified on its Statement of Organization.
This ordinance removes from ECCO the now unnecessary language that required legal defense contributions to be tracked within an existing campaign committee. The ordinance clarifies that only individuals can make contributions to a professional expense committee; maintains the current filing schedule for these types of committees; allows candidates and elected officeholders to raise funds for audits and legal defense purposes using regular campaign contributions; and clarifies the allowable purposes for which leftover professional expense funds may be used. Because the City's professional expense fund provisions may not be less strict than those contained in Government Code section 85304.5, the ordinance has removed from ECCO those provisions that allowed leftover funds to be paid to the City Treasurer for deposit in the General Fund. State law does not allow such funds to be disposed of in this manner.
The ordinance also raises the legal defense contribution limit to be equal to the dollar amount of the limit in effect for regular campaign contributions. Under the ordinance, professional expense contributions are limited to the specified dollar amount on a per matter per calendar year basis, and as the regular campaign contribution limit is biennially raised through indexing in accordance with Municipal Code section 27.2937, the contribution limit for professional expense funds will simultaneously be increased to match the indexed dollar amount.
With respect to telephone communications, this ordinance will create a new definition for “mass telephone communications,” which are telephone calls made by candidates and political committees to 500 or more individuals or households that expressly advocate for a City of San Diego candidate or ballot measure or that mention or refer to a candidate or ballot measure in a poll. To maintain consistency with the recent adoption of FPPC Regulation 18440, the ordinance requires that candidates and committees include a “paid for by” disclosure when paying for such communications unless using volunteers, and an “authorized by” disclosure when another entity is making the communication at the behest of the candidate or committee. This ordinance maintains the current requirement that volunteers engaging in these kinds of telephone communications make an “on behalf of” disclosure when a candidate or committee has paid for the resources used to make the calls.
This ordinance would exempt a candidate's personal funds from the City's 180-day post-election fundraising time limits; add new definitions for “independent expenditure committee,” “mass telephone communications,” and “professional expense committee;” amend the definition of “committee” to add “independent expenditure committee” to clarify that ECCO applies to such committees; clarify that the duty to have a campaign treasurer applies only to recipient committees; incorporate FPPC Regulation 18401 to ensure that state and local recordkeeping requirements are consistent; eliminate the requirement that missing contributor information be provided in writing within ten days; clarify that the 180-day vendor debt rules do not apply to candidate loans or committees not controlled by a candidate; remove language that conflicts with state law with regard to when a contribution is “received”; incorporate FPPC Regulation 18531.2 regarding the apportionment of expenditures between a primary and general election; and provide that a violation of SDMC section 27.2945 may be remedied only before the applicable election.
This ordinance would also make changes to the dollar threshold associated with campaign fundraising disclosures under the City's Lobbying Ordinance. To correspond with the campaign contribution limit increase in ECCO, the Lobbying Ordinance would increase from $1,000 to $2,000 the threshold under which fundraising activity must be reported on a Lobbying Firm's or Organization Lobbyist's disclosure statements.
If adopted, this ordinance would take effect and be in force on January 1, 2009, except that the amendments to section 27.2925 (recordkeeping), sections 27.2935 and 27.2936 (contribution limits for candidate elections) shall be applicable only to elections occurring after January 1, 2009, and the amendments to section 27.4002 (fundraising disclosure threshold for lobbyists) shall be applicable only to fundraising that takes place on or after January 1, 2009.
Introduced on October 6, 2008.
Passed by the Council of the City of San Diego on October 21, 2008.
Date of Final Passage is October 27, 2008.
