Edited 6/21/19 Pg. 4 First, Staff presented the preliminary Fiscal Year 2020 budget during the April 9th Finance Committee meeting and answered questions from the Board of Trustees. Time to discuss the budget will also be available at the Finance Committee meeting that is tentatively scheduled for April 30th; however, the Board is encouraged to contact staff with any questions prior to or after this meeting. Staff plans to request that the Board consider introduction of the preliminary Fiscal Year 2020 budget at its May 9, 2019 Board of Trustees meeting. At this meeting, the Trustees will also need to appoint a Finding of Fact Committee to consider the proposed taxes. Staff will also schedule a public meeting on the preliminary budget that evening, after the Board meeting. Next, I would like to turn the report over to Shonnah Parades to present the Semi-Annual Diversity Report. Shonnah Parades, the Manager of Diversity, announced she had good news and provided a report for the first half of the 2019 year. She discussed various topics listed on her report and discussed highlights and updates for the first half of 2019. Ms. Parades reported that MSD awarded 45 projects awards in the area of construction and (39)thirty-nine of those were in the non-building construction area where most of the spending occurs; about 87% of capital is spent in this area. Two of those projects were state funded using SRF funding and four of those projects were under $50,000. One of the four projects was awarded for 100% MBE participation and the result was 29% of the projects under the $50,000 was awarded for MWBE participation. In the form of commitments to be made of the (22) twenty-two million dollars awarded for those 45 projects, we saw that 20% of those dollars went to MWBE companies. The breakdown is that $3.8 million went to MBE companies and Half-Million went to WBE companies. We have 17.25% in the MBE area because the majority of our spend is with the non-building construction program. For active contract payments, about 22% of the total payments made went to WMBE companies; and out of $77 million dollars, $16 million went to MBE firms and 1% went to WBE firms. Next is the Construction Workforce Utilization Program. The total amount of hours worked equaled two- million working hours of boots on the ground of MSD projects. The minority hours were 29.91% and 6.98% hours were with women workers. We nearly had (60)sixty-thousand of working apprenticeship hours. Ms. Parades explained where MSD stands in terms of our overall workforce programs, across all construction projects, is that we are less than a percentage point a way from reaching 30% minority and 7% women workforce participation across all of MSD construction projects. Currently, 73% of apprentice hours worked on MSD projects were with minority and women workers on the job site. This speaks to the commitments made by the contractors to diversify their workforce on the MSD projects. On the design utilization side, there were nine(9) design contracts awarded worth about $5.7 million dollars and there were $3.3 million dollars in commitments which represented over 53% commitments of participation in our professional service contracts where we did not have goals. On active payments for the 100+ active projects we had, we paid $43 million dollars in total, which represented about 16% of those payments going towards MWBE contactors. Under the workforce utilization for our professional services, we overwhelmingly reached the 32% women participation goals and fell short for the minority participation but we will continue to work towards reaching 18% minority participation for local profession services workforce. Edited 6/21/19 Pg. 5 We have seen very good participation in the small contracts program area. We have almost reached 50% participation in terms of dollars spent and the number of projects awarded. Participation in our small contractor program continues to rise and here is where we see Minorities and women contractors have the ability to perform as prime contractors in the work that they perform. We continue to see significant growth for small contractors looking to grow their capacity and participate on larger projects. In terms of the total spend, 45% of the project was with MWBE contractors and the number of projects awarded was 45% to MWBE contractors. With the Community Benefits Agreement, we regularly meet with our community partners on the initiatives identified in our agreement and on efforts to support the communities we serve. Currently the first source hiring program has thirty-three individuals who can be referred to MSD contractors for workforce when falling short of meeting workforce goals. There was one female hire, a journeyman, due to the referrals that were made during this period. Ms. Parades shared that last summer, MSD sponsored five high school students for the St Louis internship program. This year we anticipate we will also have five interns to serve paid internships. We were also able to convert partial sponsorships for SIUE program, the environmental resource training for treatment plant operators, into full scholarships, so that some of the barriers that exist financially, would be removed for candidates that were selected to complete the program. These are offered within the community currently to disadvantaged minorities and women within the community. The next program is the Tunneling OJT program. The results for three of these projects are related to: Upper Maline Creek, Maline Creek and the Deer Creek project. All (3) three of these projects participate in the tunnel-training program. (15) Fifteen trainees were accepted into the program; all were minorities and the breakout was (12) twelve minority men and (3) three minority women. Of those (15) fifteen trainees, (10) ten completed the entire program with 1040 hours plus classroom training for certification to perform tunneling work. (7) Seven were minority men and (3) three were minority women. Currently there are (3) three minorities employed with SAK; 2 men and 1 woman. Although our goal for retention was set at 40% based on industry standards, we were able to retain about 30% retention for the workers on the program. Trustee Faul asked if 40% was based on industry standards of all workers or of minority recruits? Ms. Parades confirmed it was based on minority recruits. There were some obstacles on the program due to a lot of downtime resulting in 1 of 4 of the trainees completing the program on one of our projects, but at the end of the day there are (7) seven more available workers with tunnel training that can be used on MSD projects or other construction projects. MSD is currently updating the Disparity study; the results were implemented in August 2013. We have provided a schedule of events and activities to take place performing the updates. The Mason Tillman and Associates will perform the task of the conducting the analysis for MSD. We are now in the process of assembling and sharing data to Mason Tillman and the data is currently under review. We have also scheduled community outreach sessions with Mason Tillman to conduct outreach and inform the contracting community about the activities taking place to conduct the disparity study update. The first is coupled with the MSD capital report to the contracting community on April 22, 2019 at 1:30pm at Moolah. The consultant will conduct the second outreach session on April 23, 2019 at the William J. Harrison Center (STLCC) on Cass Ave. with the contracting community. Finally, Ms. Parades presented the MSD Diversity staff. Seven staff members were present and the Diversity department is completely staffed to monitor, track and conduct compliance on all MSD programs, and the results presented tonight would not be possible without them. Edited 6/21/19 Pg. 6 Ms. Parades introduced Larry Woods, the now Construction Supervisor, two new inspectors, Jeremy Grisby and Denise Jones, MWBE compliance specialist Yulanda Brady and Mikal Hicks, who was promoted from Inspector to Specialist and Marnita Spight who is legendary in the diversity department. Trustee Faul thanked Larry Woods for his great reporting. Ms. Parades Thanked the Trustees and concluded her report. The Executive Director then shared his final remarks. I would like to say a few words about the recent proposition S vote and MSD’s immediate plans to continue trying to address this issue. The voters within MSD’s service area have decided not to have a District-wide program to address flooding and erosion issues. Edited 6/21/19 Pg. 7 We respect the many reasons we have heard as to why the public voted No for this proposition and we respect the public’s decision. As committed during Proposition S three years ago MSD staff will now go back to the municipalities located within the 12 existing separate taxing sub-districts, or OMCI’s, to gauge their desire to have MSD re-institute the taxes that were set to zero three years ago. These taxes can be used, as they have been in the past, to address flooding and erosion issues just in the areas the taxes are collected. Staff will use this information to develop a recommendation for consideration by our Board of Trustees. MSD will also continue to identify and pursue other sources of outside funding for flooding and erosion. Thank you, Mr. Chair. That concludes my Executive Director report.
