The Board of Supervisors Budget and Finance Committee weighed cuts to the citywide fiber initiative, as well as the District Attorney’s unit that examines when a police officer shoots someone. Supervisor Malia Cohen, who chairs the committee, criticized DA George Gascon for the unit failing to charge any officers involved in police shootings. In the three years of the multi-million dollar bureau, no officers have been charged in police shootings. However, Gascon’s chief of staff argues that the bureau brings a higher quality to the investigations. more

As a measure to allow cities expand rent control heads to the November ballot, apparently negotiation talks between the supporting and opposing sides have ended. Assemblymember David Chiu, who authored the since-dead bill to allow for expansion of rent control, says a deal between the two sides is highly unlikely. The ballot effort, which seeks to repeal the Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act, is likely to be one of the costliest measures this November. more

City Attorney Dennis Herrera filed a lawsuit against a real estate speculator for repeatedly doing construction work without permits. Ashok Gujral, a developer and investor, has been accused of receiving permits for minor work on 7 residential buildings in SF, but then conducting major renovations in violation of city law. The move saved Gujral in permitting fees and other costs, which the city says was designed to maximize profits upon reselling the buildings.

Police Chief Bill Scott requested the Board of Supervisors to not cut funding for more officers, as budget analyst Harvey Rose recommends slashing 100 positions over two years. The recommendation to cut hiring new officers directly opposes outgoing Mayor Mark Farrell’s two-year city budget proposal, which would plan to hire an additional 250 additional police officers over four years.

These proposals only add fuel to the debate about how many officers San Francisco should have, as the city is currently on track to meet its goal.
