It is anticipated that not all of the currently existing forty odd playlots will be staffed; however, those not staffed will-:be adjacent to operational schools, Heavy emphasis will be placed on employment using in-school and out-of-school Neighborhood Youth Corps enrollees, as well as additional young people who come from disadvantaged areas. The entire summer program will be heavily publicized, using all news media and, if necessary, paid advertisements in the press, The Parks Department will attempt to have a comprehensive program going some twelve hours a day, six days a week that will provide recreation and cultural enrichment, as well as education in every identifiable neighborhood within the target areas. a

  • Text: TRAFFIC ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT Atlanta, Georgia 30303 : April 1, 1968 KARL A. BEVINS Traffic Engineer The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of the City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: In reply to paragraph #2 of your instruction sheet dated March 19, 1968, and entitled "Requested Action to be taken by City Departments and Public Agencies", we submit the following report. We believe that the Neighborhood Task Force concept is the most effective way now/known to “communicate” with the residents of the six areas. Residents of other areas usually write letters, telephone, and/or work through civic clubs, PTA groups or similar means of communication. However, we recognize the very grave danger involved in opening this channel of communication without providing the means of quick response with action that will be recognized by the individual citizen as relief. The lack of civic clubs and similar organizations makes "reasoning" with the person filing the request or complaint very difficult, if not impossible. Therefore, we see an urgent need for additional personnel and operating funds to provide (1) the field investigation service, (2) the additional traffic studies needed to determine proper corrective action and (3) the work crews to install and maintain the needed signs, markings, signals and street lights. These needs are listed below. . Signs and Markings 1 Sign Crew (2 men and truck) § 12,610.00 Traffic Engineering Serviceman $4,446.00 Semi-Skilled Worker 4, 264.00 Truck 3,500.00 Service for Truck 400.00 Sign and Marking Materials 10,000.00 TOTAL (Signs and Markings) $ 22,610.00 Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. April 1, 1968 Street Light Nighttime Inspection 1 Traffic Engineering Assistant II @$5,720.00 Auto Allowance ($70/month) 840.00 Desk and Chair 335.00 TOTAL (Street Light Nighttime Inspection) $ 6,895.00 Traffic Signals Equipment for 62 new installations @§6,000) $ 372,000.00 1 Electrical Construction Crew 40,349.00 Electrician Foreman 6,487.00 2 Electricians(@$5, 967) 11,934.00 2 Semi-Skilled Wor.(@, 264) 8,528.00 Aerial Truck 13,000.00 Service for Truck 400.00 Soa be “To fq 2 $ 412,349.00 Engineering, Specifications, Timing, etc. 1 Traffic Engineer I 8,671.00 Auto Allowance ($55/Month) 660.00 Desk and Chair 335.00 “ 1 Jr. Traffic Engineer 7,345.00 Auto Allowance ($55/Month) 660.00 Desk and Chair 335.00 Sub Total § 18,006.00 Field Traffic Studies to document needs for traffic signals if Federal or State funds are obtained to purchase the equipment 1 Traffic Engineering Asst. II 5,720.00 Auto Allowance ($55/Month) 660.00 Desk and Chair 335,00 2 TE Assistant I (@$5, 265) 10,530.00 2 Auto Allowance ($55/Month) 1,320.00 2 Desk and Chair (@$335) 670.00 Sub Total $ 19,235.00 Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. April 1, 1968 The above listed personnel, equipment and material needs are summarized as follows: Signs and Markings Personnel : $ 8,710.00 Equipment 3,900.00 Materials 10,000.00 TOTAL § 22,610.00 Street Light Night Inspection Personnel 6,560.00 Equipment 335.00 TOTAL $ 6,895.00 Traffic Signals Personnel (Construction) 26,949.00 Personnel (kngineering) 17,336.00 Personnel (Documentation) 18, 230,00 Equipment (for Personnel) 15,075.00 Traffic Signal Equipment 372,000.00 TOTAL $ 449,590.00 This listing shows an estimated grand total of $479,095.00 which includes $77,785.00 for Personnel, $19,310.00 for Equipment and $382,000.00 for Materials. The needs for sign and marking materials are not great ($10,000) as outlined above. However, the need for prompt service is urgent. The best our "normal! service can do is 10 days to 2 weeks after the field investigation is complete and the work orders are written. "Normal" time for field investigation is also 10 days to 2 weeks. Experience has shown that this is not fast enough for the needs of the six special areas. Field investigation must be done within 48 hours and work crews must be in the area within 3 or 4 days of the time that the request or complaint is filed. This time table requires the additional personnel outlined above, Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. April 1, 1968 Experience during 1966 and 1967 clearly shows that regular night inspections are necessary to locate lamp outages, street light fixtures broken by rocks and/or rifle shots and report these items to the Georgia Power Company for immediate repairs. Normal maintenance by the Georgia Power Company calls for cleaning and re-lamping only every 2 to 3 years. In other sections of the city, residents usually notify us of lamps that burn out ahead of schedule or of physical damage that occurs. During 1966 and 1967, we found that (in the six areas) most of these items went unreported until we made a night inspection. There is a “backlog” of traffic signal needs (city wide) consisting of about 150 locations where signals have been requested and where signals would be helpful and are warranted. Approximately 62 of these locations are in the six areas. Most of these are the "Merrill and Oakland't type of situations and there is no way of accurately predicting when or if a sudden pressing need will occur. New Federal Safety Standards will probably require certain additional equipment over and above our present standards. Accordingly, our estimate of the cost of these installations is slightly higher than in the past. Also, if Federal Funds are obtained to help purchase signal equipment, a substantial amount of field work and data gathering will be necessary to satisfy Federal and State documentation requirements, Estimated needs to develop this documentation are also listed above. In closing, we assure you that we recognize the importance and the urgency of this segment of our service to the city. We believe that the"™Neighborhood Task Force" type of communication should be opened. We urge that_this improved communication be backed by improving the City's ability to respond with "desirable" as well as urgently needed services. In our field of endeavor, it is frequently difficult to define (explain) the difference between a "desirable™ service or traffic control device and one that is urgently needed. Sincerely, Pa OL Ce ‘2 tk Karl A. Bevins KAB/fd ec: Alderman G. Everett Millican, Chairman“ Advisory Committee on Civil Disorders Alderman Richard C.

  • Text: REPORT TO MAYOR IVAN ALLEN JR. CONCERNING NEEDS AND ESTIMATED COSTS OF IMPLEMENTING THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE *ON CIVIL DISORDER - SUBMITTED BY Robert M. food, Chairman Atlanta Children and‘ Youth _— Services Council. J, In order to assess the feasibility of implementing the recommendations of the National Advisory Committee on Civil Disorder, the Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council will first indicate the extent and intensity of youth problems as related to civil disorder. Observing the report of the National Advisory Committee, the Youth Council immediately noticed the extent of youth participation in Civil Disorder. For example, the Committee reports that the typical rioter in the summer of 1967 was a Negro, unmarried male between the ages 15 and 24, In Detroit, 61.3% of the self reported rioters were between the ages 15 and 24 and 86.3% were between 15 and 35. The arrest data indicated that 52.5% of the arresteces were between 15 and 24, and 60.8 percent were between 15 and 35. In short, the - typical rioter was a teenager or young adult, a life long resident of the city in which he rioted, a high school drop-out. In Atlanta preliminary data revealed that riot participants were between the ages 9 and 35. The overwhelming majority of those arrested in Atlanta's riot of 1967 were less that 30 years old. These data reveal that riots are by and large initiated, prolonged, and participated in by youth and young adults, These data also bear witness to the lack of interest, energy, and resources needed to deal with youth problems and needs realistically and honestly. In Atlanta, the need for more concentrated and realistic allocation of personnel and resources to deal with youth problems increases ever year. For example 57% of Fulton County's Juvenile Delinquents were residents of Atlanta's poverty areas in 1964, In 1965 43% of all people arrested for major crimes in Atlanta were below 17 years of age. The delinquency rate has increased 114% faster than the general population, The recidivist rate for Fulton County Youth offenders is 40%. The general restlessness of inner city Atlanta Youth has increased to a dangerous level. ‘In addition there are 3,000 school drop- outs in Atlanta. In 1965, 40% of the youth tested by the Fulton County Juvenile Court were 5 years or more below their proper grade level, Another 40% were three or more years behind. These statistics merely reflect some of the problems facing Atlanta's youth, Other problems are: 1. high illigitimacy rates, 2. increasing delinquency in affluent areas 3. increasing belligerent postures by minority youth, particulary in civil rights activities, 4. rebellion on college campuses, 5. youth anti-draft and anti-war activities. Concomitant and correlated to youth participation in civil disorders and riots is their participation in normal delinquent activities, individually and collect- ively. Considering the broad range of needs and problems facing Atlanta's youth the ' Atlenta Children and Youth Services Council specifically reconmend the following courses of actions aimed at reducing tensions and the possibility of civil disorders in slums and blighted areas for the summer 1968. 1. 3. 7. 8. That the city of Atlanta emphasize and provide more recreational programs and facilities in Slum areas for teenagers and young adults. If this is not geographically feasible, then the city should subsidize and/or provide transportation to areas where such programs and facilities are available. This recreational provision should be totally devoted to late afternoon, evening and night activities as well as evening activities. That the city sponsor an outreach Street Workers ' Program where outreach workers may go into potentially trouble areas and work for periods of time with detached and unreached individual youth helping them become involved in meaningful employment, recreation and education. This program will be coordinated by the Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council and will be operated on @ contractual basis with other operationg agencies to supervise street workers. That several youth from the Youth Congress be appointed to the Mayor's Civil Disorder Advisory Committee. That a workshop be conducted by the Atlanta Children and Youth Service Council, the Police Department, Social Agencies, Civil Rights Groups, and Youth Organizations around athere of "Police- Youth Relationships" in which all divisions of the police department will participate. The Community Relations Services, U.S. Department of Justice will assist in sponsoring such a program. That all city departments channel all youth requests, grievances, complaints, etc. to the Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council] which is the agency established to deal with these matters. That the work of the Crime Prevention Bureau and Juvenile units of the Police Department be more closely related to the Youth Covncil in the planning and implementing of their programs. That the switchboard in City Hall be open daily from 5:00 p.m, until 12:00 a.m. with persons available to receive complaints and grievances and furnish names and telephone numbers of persons to call during emergency or crisis periods. That the Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council and the Comunity Relations Comnission be provided funds to hire community organizers, for youth and adults in racially transitional areas such as West End, Bellwood, Grant Park, Capitol Homes and

SUTHERLAND ; Director April 2 1968 Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: Pursuant to your guidance at the organizational meeting of the Advisory Committee on Civil Disorders held in the City Hall March 19, 1968, and to careful reading of Chapters 10 and 17 of Report of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders, I have reached the conclusion that the City Personnel Department for several years gradually has been putting into practice most of the recommendations of the Commission pertaining to employment. I agree, however, that other steps should be taken and have prepared two recommendations, one that requires action and money from the Mayor and Board of Aldermen. Both require cooperation from all departments of the City government. Though it is true that the objective of the City Personnel Department to provide the City government with the best qualified personnel available and to do so by operation of a competitive merit system designed to give priority to the best qualified applicants, the Civil Service Act is suf- ficiently flexible to provide for certain types of temporary employment in the unclassified service. The Civil Service Act also gives the Personnel Director wide latitude in estab- lishing requirements for applicants, and I have exercised the authority given me to adjust standards to meet condi- tions that have confronted the City government during the past several years. Requirements have been reduced for nearly all classes of jobs. Establishment of minimum standards is avoided as Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. -—2= April 2, 1968 -™much as deemed practicable, and for most jobs the word "desirable" has been substituted for "minimum" in listing education, training, and experience standards. Performance tests have replaced written tests wherever practicable. With approval of the Personnel Board, employment of per- sonnel with criminal records has been liberalized except for positions concerned with law enforcement, working with children in the schools and recreation departments, and in other positions of trust and responsibility. Upon the recommendation of state and county parole authorities, we have approved employment of parolees with good prison de- portment records. The age limits have been lowered to 20 for Police Patrolmen, 18 for Firemen, and 17 for clerical and unskilled personnel. Locker attendants and life guards may be employed at age 16. Few job classes have maximum age limits except those set by statute. Though there is reluctance by many department heads to employ personnel above age 40, considerable numbers above age 50, and several above age 60, have been employed. As you are aware, since January 1, 1962, Negroes, whose ap- plications prior to this time were accepted only for entrance level jobs, have been encouraged to apply for all classes of jobs, and many have been employed in jobs above the entrance level. The Personnel Training Coordinator with the cooperation of the Public Works Department has established a training program for truck driver aspirants, enabling both White and Negro Laborers and Waste Collectors to be trained and to meet the requirements for promotion. This program will be continued. Also, with the cooperation of the Atlanta Public Schools, a training program for first level supervisory personnel has been established to upgrade the qualifications of incum- bents of first level supervisory positions and to qualify applicants for promotion to these positions, Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. =—3— April 2, 1968 The Personnel Training Coordinator also planned and organized with the cooperation of the Sanitary Department (now the Sanitation Division of the Public Works Department) the At-— lanta Beautification Corps, a federally financed program under the sponsorship of Economic Opportunity Atlanta. This program employs approximately fifty disadvantaged persons ranging from age 18 to age 68 and is composed of about 88% women, largely Negro. Mr. Farrow still exercises overall supervision of this program. Numerous favorable comments concerning the deportment and accomplishments of this group have been received from interested citizens and personnel of the City government. Mr. Farrow reports that if funds were available, several hundred additional personnel could be employed in the Atlanta Beautification Corps with advantage to both the employees and the City. The positive actions referred to above have done much to provide career opportunities for disadvantaged minorities, but much still needs to be done. Two programs prepared by members of my staff, outlines of which are attached hereto, are proposed to assist in implementation of some of the em- ployment objectives of the Report of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders. These programs would provide employment opportunities for approximately 200 disadvantaged personnel. Respectfully, CARL T,. SUTHERLAND Director of Personnel CcTS:cbt Attachments (2)

I, Federally Funded Program The approximately 75 federally funded "job slots" being made available to the City of Atlanta for the Summer by Economic Opportunity Atlanta and continu- ing employment of "hard-core" unemployed youth can be utilized hy the various departments as outlined roughly on the attached listing. More than 100 persons have been requested by reporting departments and, if additional federal funds are allocated, other job slots can be developed by a follow-up of previous oral and written communications with the various departments. For maximum success in this endeavor, based on unfortunate experience in a somewhat larger and more ambitious program three years ago, the following suggestions are made: 1. That screening and selective placement be effected by the City Personnel Department after initial screening by the various Neighborhood Youth Center referring agencies. 2. That no more than five enrollees be assigned to a qualified, informed, and concerned supervisor for counselling purposes.: (New jobs with N.Y.C., at level above enrollee) 3. That a regular weekly group session for all these summer enrollees~— plus all of the presently enrolled N.Y.C. workers -- be instituted as an important, integral, required program phase. Groups could visit various City facilities by proper advance planning; and civic, civil, and social amenities could be the indirect’ objective. 4, That Rule 59, Labor Laws of Georgia, 1963 edition, relating to the lifting of 30# or more for minors and women be modified to allow less restricted employment of youths age 16 and 17. (Mr. Murray Silver, State Labor Department Attorney, February 5, 1968, advised that such modification was to be effected.) I have requested assis~ tance of the State Commissioner of Labor in securing a liberalization of this restrictive rule. II. Existing Job Vacanciles Consideration is being given to whether it is feasible or legal to post- pone for the duration of the summer months the establishment of civil service registers in classes such as Auditorium Utility Worker I, Automotive Serviceman I, Clerk, Community Recreation Leader, Engineering Aide I, Incinerator Operator I, Semi-Skilled Worker, Treatment Plant Operator, Zoo Attendant, Laborer, and Waste Collector so that as many as possible of such positions may be filled by unem- ployed youth. III. Other Recommendations It is suggested that certain programs, such as the City's federally funded ABC program be expanded into a variety of community service areas or into existing City service programs; e.g., nursery service programs or Zoo staffing subordinate assignments. These expanded programs would enable employment of female older workers who are family breadwinners. Their employment on a regular basis would begin to establish the necessary stability in the family unit.

The meeting will be held at 2:30 p.m. in Committee Room 2 at City Hall. é Most of you were involved last year in the development and execution of our special programs of city services and youth activities during the summer months. The favorable results of those programs have convinced us that we must extend and expand them this year, At the Tuesday meeting we will discuss: 1. A proposal for city services coordination this year. 2. The recommendations of the President's Commission on Civil Disorders and what the City should do with them. I hope you will be with us. IAJr:fy
