PARTNERSHIP DEVELOPS AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON MISSION HILL 

City, state, hospital, labor and neighborhood leaders mark agreement 
on Lahey Clinic/Mission Hill land. 

Mayor Raymond L. Flynn was joined by state officials and representa- 
tives from the Lahey Clinic, construction unions, and residents of the Mission 
Hill neighborhood to announce agreement on a proposal to develop 166 units 
of affordable housing on Mission Hill. 

The ceremony took place on the ten-acre parcel of vacant land at the in- 
tersection of South Huntington Avenue and Heath Street, property that was 
bought by the Clinic some twenty years ago as a prospective site for a new 
health care facility. 



Mayor Flynn thanked the trustees 
of Lahey Clinic for agreeing to sell 
the property for what he called "a 
fair price — but one that will enable 
the construction of badly needed af- 
fordable housing." 

The Mayor went on to call the part- 
nership between the city, the Brick- 
layers and Laborers Union, and the 
Back of the Hill Community Develop- 
ment Corporation "a national model," 
saying that the project "would not 
only provide affordable housing — 
but would be financed and built by 
labor unions, ensuring jobs for their 
members and for Boston residents." 

Tom Mclntyre, president of the 
Bricklayers and Laborers, expressed 
his satisfaction at being able to pro- 
vide union-built homes in the Mission 
Hill neighborhood where he grew up. 
Kay Gallagher, president of the Back 
of the Hill Community Development 
Corporation called the agreement 
'the fulfillment of our hopes and 
hard work to rebuild our neighbor- 
hood." 

The proposed development will 
consist of 36 one-bedroom units, 
100, two-bedroom townhouses, and 
30, three-bedroom townhouses. The 
units will sell for between $69,000 
and $106,000. Limited equity provi- 
sions will be attached to any even- 
tual resale. In addition to the 
housing, a two-acre site with spec- 
tacular views of the Olmstead Park 
system will be set aside for open 
space conservation land. Total devel- 
opment cost for the project will be 
$17 million. 



City, state and federal funds will be 
used to assist the Bricklayers and 
the Back of the Hill CDC in the de- 
velopment of the project. Mayor 
Flynn praised the strong support of 
Governor Dukakis and members of 
his Cabinet, Senate President Wil- 
liam Bulger, and State Representa- 
tive Kevin Fitzgerald. 

"It has taken a long time, and a lot 
of hard work by a lot of people," the 
Mayor said, "but I think today we 
can all be proud and sure of the fact 
that the Back of the Hill area rebuild- 
ing will finally be complete." 



MAYOR FLYNN NEGOTIATES 
FOR DONATION OF 
12-METER YACHT 

Mayor Raymond Flynn confirmed 
that representatives of the City of Bos- 
ton met with representatives of Leonard 
Greene, chairman of the Courageous 
Syndicate, in an effort to encourage Mr. 
Greene to donate the twelve-meter 
yacht Courageous to the children of 
Boston. City representatives made a 
presentation of a plan by which the ves- 
sel, which successfully defended the 
America's Cup in 1 974 and 1 977, would 
be donated to a public sailing center to 
be created at the Charlestown Navy 
Yard. 

The Courageous, the world's most fa- 
mous 12-meter yacht, which was skip- 
pered by Ted Turner in 1974 and by Ted 
Hood of Marblehead in 1977, is valued 
at over one million dollars and would be 
used, if the city's plan is accepted, as 



both a symbol and training mechanism 
for the sail training program. 

As currently planned, Harry McDo- 
nough of South Boston, who has oper- 
ated a sailing program for many years at 
Castle Island, would operate a similar 
program at the Navy Yard which would 
involve the youth of Boston in sail train- 
ing, sailboat operation and mainte- 
nance, and harbor related educational 
courses. 

City representatives, who have been 
lobbying the Courageous Syndicate for 
some time on behalf of the sailing cen- 
ter, outlined a plan by which the vessel 
would be berthed at Pier 4, Shipyard 
Park in the Navy Yard. The Boston Re- 
development Authority has to date 
spent over $2.5 million on the restora- 
tion of the pier and the adjacent park 
and is about to begin a two-million-dol- 
lar project which will transform the 
former Navy Dry Dock next to Pier 4 into 
an active waterfront recreational facil- 
ity. 

City representatives outlined to the 
Courageous Syndicate the goals of the 
sailing center, the facilities available at 
the Navy Yard and the benefits to 
berthing the vessel in Boston. 

Both sides in the negotiations ex- 
pressed optimism that an agreement 
can be reached in time to bring the ves- 
sel to Boston in time for the start up of 
the sailing program in the summer of 
1987. The vessel is currently in Austra- 
lia and Greene is arranging for it to be 
returned to the United States in the near 
future. 

The Old Corner Bookstore 

Here met the authors who made 
Boston "the Athens of America." 
Built in 1712, in the nineteenth cen- 
tury it was the publishing house of 
Ticknor and Fields; later, it became 
the Old Corner Bookstore and a 
meeting place for the literary greats: 
Emerson, Hawthorne, Holmes, 
Stowe, and others. Open daily, 10-6 
p.m. (Free) 



CONTRACTS AWARDED 
WITHOUT ADVERTISING 

The Mayor has approved the 
awarding of contracts without ad- 
vertising, based on the following 
communications: 

SCHOOL DEPARTMENT 
Instructional Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

On behalf of the Boston Public Schools, I request 
your authorization for the award of a contract to the 
Historic Neighborhoods Foundation, 92 South 
Street. The contract shall be in effect during the 
period of October 1, 1985, to June 30, 1986, and 
shall occur at a cost not to exceed $1 2,603, which I 
have deemed to be reasonable. On June 25, 1985, 
the School Committee approved all of the FY'86 
chapter 636 proposals for the sum of $5,023,273. 
Historic Neighborhoods Foundation's portion as is 
related to that amount is $1 2,603. 

The contractor will provide instructional services 
at the Barnes Middle School, paired with the Urn- 
ana School, for sixty students of various ra- 
cial/ethnic backgrounds with classroom activities 
and a total of fourteen field trips that emphasize the 
positive features of their schools and their home 
neighborhoods by matching photographs of actual 
buildings and details of buildings with real buildings 
in their neighborhoods. Students will videotape 
newscasts on location in various Boston neighbor- 
hoods. The contract covers bus fees, admission 
fees, materials and personnel. 

The contractor is uniquely qualified to provide 
the above services because the contractor has or- 
ganized appropriate resources to enable the Bos- 
ton School Department to qualify for funding under 
chapter 636, 1 974 Amendments to the 1 965 Racial 
Imbalance Act, in the category of Cultural Institu- 
tion; the institution has specifically designed serv- 
ices in conjunction with school personnel to meet 
the intent of U.S. District Court Judge W. Arthur 
Garrity, Memorandum and Orders Modifying De- 
segregation Plan (Morgan v. McDonough, Civil 
Action No. 72-91 1-G); further, the services have 
been reviewed and approved by appropriate per- 
sonnel at the Department of Education. 

Because of the professional nature of the service 
to be provided under this agreement and the exper- 
tise of the contractor in providing such services, it is 
my determination that the public interest would not 
be served by public advertisement for bids. 

This agreement is to be executed without an ap- 
propriation of funds, under provisions of General 
Laws, chapter 44, s. 53A and is subject to the re- 
ceipt of funds under grant from chapter 636 86- 
8MEP-0156. 

Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson, 
Superintendent.

children will receive introductory art experiences 
that will improve their visual communication skills 
while providing partnership experiences for inte- 
gration goals. The cognitive learning concepts that 
will be presented with the use of art materials are 
relationships, organization of ideas and organiza- 
tion of materials. At the end of the program, perma- 
nent art projects will be mounted in each school.

ically designed for first graders from the Bradley

ing about their own and other's backgrounds. This

and one storyteller from the Neighborhood Arts 
Center. Art and Reading Together will take place at 
the Neighborhood Arts Center workshop in weekly, 
two-hour sessions for twenty-five weeks. Students

write and illustrate stories. The stories utilized will 
focus on curriculum themes and the participating 
children's ethnic heritages. A program beginning

visual activities, will sequence through words and 
then into phrases; towards the end of the program,

The contractor is uniquely qualified to provide 
the above services because the contractor has or- 
ganized appropriate resources to enable the Bos- 
ton School Department to qualify for funding under 



chapter 636, 1 974 Amendments to the 1 965 Racial 
Imbalance Act, in the category of Cultural Institu- 
tion; the institution has specifically designed serv- 
ices in conjunction with school personnel to meet 
the intent of U.S. District Court Judge W. Arthur 
Garrity, Memorandum and Orders Modifying De- 
segregation Plan (Morgan v. McDonough, Civil 
Action No. 72-91 1-G); further, the services have 
been reviewed and approved by appropriate per- 
sonnel at the Department of Education. 

Because of the professional nature of the service 
to be provided under this agreement and the exper- 
tise of the contractor in providing such services, it is 
my determination that the public interest would not 
be served by public advertisement for bids. 

This agreement is to be executed without an ap- 
propriation of funds, under provisions of General 
Laws, chapter 44, s. 53A and is subject to the re- 
ceipt of funds under grant from chapter 636, Project 
No. 86-9D. 

Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson,

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

As superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, 
I request your authorization for the award of a con- 
tract to the Institute for Self Active Education, Bos- 
ton. The contract shall be in effect during the period 
of October 28, 1985, to June 30, 1986, and shall 
occur at a cost not to exceed $29,000, which I have 
deemed to be reasonable. On June 25, 1985, the 
School Committee approved all of the FY'86 chap- 
ter 636 proposals for the sum of $5,023,273. The 
Institute for Self Active Education's portion as is re- 
lated to that amount is $29,000. 

The contractor will provide the following instruc- 
tional services: 

A recycling center will be established at the 
Kenny School. A project facilitator will supervise 
the center, conduct workshops for teachers, pro- 
vide direct in-classroom instruction to students and 
gather recyclable materials from various manufac- 
turing sites and businesses. The program supple- 
ments poorly equipped classrooms with a ready 
supply of free materials which will be used for creat- 
ing art projects and other hands-on manipulative 
learning tools. 

Approximately 2,000 students and eighty teach- 
ers will participate in the program. One of the main 
objectives of the program is for students from differ- 
ent races and ethnic groups to work together to 
solve problems. Using these interesting and availa- 
ble byproducts and materials, teachers and par- 
ents provide students with activities designed to 
develop basic skills in number concepts, mathe- 
matical relationships, language arts and problem 
solving. 

The same number of students will, through pro- 
gram activities, learn to work cooperatively and will 
develop a more positive self-concept. It is important 
to note that students of all categories (regular edu- 
cation, special education, bilingual, gifted and tal- 
ented) will participate in the program. 

The contractor is uniquely qualified to provide 
the above services because the contractor has or- 
ganized appropriate resources to enable the Bos- 
ton School Department to qualify for funding under 
chapter 636, 1 974 Amendments to the 1 965 Racial 
Imbalance Act, in the category of Cultural Institu- 
tion; the institution has specifically designed serv- 
ices in conjunction with school personnel to meet

propriation of funds, under provisions of General 
Laws, chapter 44, s. 53A and is subject to the re-

0005. 

Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson, 
Superintendent. 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

As superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, 
I request your authorization for the award of a con- 
tract to Kodaly Center of America, a corporation lo- 
cated at Newton. 

The contract shall be in effect during the period 
November 15,1 985, to June 30, 1 986, and shall oc- 
cur at a cost not to exceed $3,000, which I have 
deemed to be reasonable. 

Under the terms of the contract the contractor will 
provide the following instructional services at the 
Sarah Greenwood School: a Kodaly model pro- 
gram of thorough sequential instruction in reading, 
writing, and sight singing music will be conducted 
for all children in the school including Spanish bilin- 
gual classes. A student chorus will perform for the 
general public once during the school year at a 
downtown location. 

The contractor is specially qualified to provide 
the above services because Kodaly is a unique and 
specialized method of music training. The Kodaly 
Center of America is the only independent teacher 
training center in the country which specializes in 
the training of Kodaly music teachers and the su- 
pervising of Kodaly music programs in schools and 
colleges. 

Because of the professional nature of the service 
to be provided under this agreement, and the ex- 
pertise of the contractor in providing such services, 
it is my determination that the public interest would 
not be served by public advertisement for bids. 
Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson, 
Superintendent. 

Special Educational Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

On behalf of the School Committee of the City of 
Boston, I request your authorization for the award 
of a contract to The Pike School, Inc., NH, for the 
provision of special educational services to Boston 
Public School children in accordance with M.G.L. 
c. 71 B (chapter 766), and the regulations promul- 
gated thereunder, at a cost not to exceed $56,029, 
which is deemed to be reasonable by the commit- 
tee, during the period of July 1, 1985, to June 30, 
1986. 

The amount to be encumbered initially is 
$18,676. 

The facility will provide thereunder educational 
services to Boston Public School pupils in accord- 
ance with each child's individual educational plan 
devised by the School Department staff. 

Because it has been determined that these chil- 
dren are in immediate need of special education, 
and due to the professional nature of the services to 
be performed, and the expertise of the facility in this 
area, it is the determination of the School Commit- 
tee that the public interest would not be serviced by 
public advertising for bids. 

Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson, 
Superintendent.

RAYMOND L. FLYNN OFFICIAL CHRONICLE, MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS BRUCE C. BOLLING 

MAYOR OF BOSTON I PRFSinFNT CITY COUNOII 

VOL. 79 MONDAY, JANUARY 12, 1987 NO. 2 



MAYOR FLYNN ANNOUNCES PILOT LOADING ZONE POLICY 



Mayor Raymond L. Flynn has announced a new loading zone policy for a 
pilot area in the downtown business district bordered by Tremont, Congress, 
Court, and Franklin Streets. The new regulations went into effect on Monday, 
January 5th, for a sixty-day trial period. 

The pilot program, the result of a three-month study, is designed to in- 
crease the amount of curb space used for loading purposes and to consoli- 
date loading zone areas, according to Transportation Department officials. 

"Centrally located zones will make it easier for commercial vehicles to 
make deliveries and for merchants and businesses to receive goods. Having 
loading zones consolidated on each block will also make it easier for the Po- 
lice and Transportation Departments to enforce regulations," said Mayor 
Flynn. 



The study conducted for the Trans- 
portation Department found the city's 
loading zone supply adequate but 
improperly utilized. The study found 
that loading zone areas are most ef- 
fective when they are not situated 
near curb space zoned for general 
parking which often leads to abuse 
by non-commercial vehicles. 

Transportation Commissioner Ri- 
chard Dimino said, "The primary ob- 
jective of changing the loading zone 
policy is to make the most rational 
and effective use of curb space in 
the downtown area where commer- 
cial activities are intense. The exist- 
ing procedure of individual 
merchants paying an annual fee for 
loading space in front of their busi- 
nesses does not meet the needs of 
all businesses, nor is it an effective 
use of curb space." 

The following is the fact sheet on 
the Loading Zone Pilot Program. 
Introduction 

Effective Monday, January 5, for a 
sixty-day trial period, the Boston 
Transportation Department has insti- 
tuted a new loading zone policy in a 
pilot area in Boston's downtown busi- 
ness district bordered by Tremont, 
Congress, Court, and Franklin 
Streets. 

Rationale 

This pilot program is the result of a 
study, recently conducted for the Trans- 
portation Department, which analyzed 
the city's existing loading policy and the 



actual utilization of curb space on 
streets within a portion of Downtown 
Boston. The three-month study con- 
cluded that although the city's loading 
zone supply is adequate (demand 
never exceeded 75 percent of supply at 
any hour of the day on any of the streets 
surveyed), the existing policy encour- 
ages both the placement of loading 
zones in areas that are less than opti- 
mal, as well as reducing the improper 
use of loading zones by non-commer- 
cial vehicles. The study also concluded 
that loading zones are most effective 
when they are not situated near curb 
space zoned for general parking. 
Key elements of the program include: 

• Consolidated and strategically 
placed loading zone locations; 

• 2,250 additional feet of load- 
ing zone space; 

• A decreased time limit for 
loading activities; 

• New loading zone signs; 

• The elimination of loading 
zone fees; 

• Increased enforcement of 
loading zone regulations; 

• Daytime and peak-hour restric- 
tions for loading activities. 

Objectives 

The primary objectives of the pilot 
program are: 

• To develop a comprehensive 
loading zone policy which rep- 
resents the delivery needs of 
the targeted business commu- 
nity; 



• To increase the availability of 
short-term curb space for 
commercial vehicles; and 

• To reduce congestion and im- 
prove traffic flow by adding 
and enforcing peak-hour re- 
strictions and by eliminating 
double parking violations in 
the downtown area. 

Implementation Strategy 

For a sixty-day trial period, which 
began January 5, the department will 
implement revised loading zone reg- 
ulations. All old loading zone signs 
will be replaced with new signs 
within the pilot area. This newly de- 
signed sign displays a loading zone 
graphic, states the hours that the 
loading regulation is in effect, indi- 
cates a thirty-minute time restriction 
for loading zone use and clearly de- 
fines that the area is to be used 
solely by commercial vehicles. By 
clearly defining loading zone use on 
the sign, a decrease is expected in 
the improper use of loading zones by 
private passenger vehicles. The re- 
ducted time restriction from the exist- 
ing one-hour limit to the proposed 
thirty minutes is intended to: 

1. Increase turnover at loading 
zones, thereby increasing 
supply and the availability of 
curb space; and 

2. Decrease traffic congestion 
by eliminating double parking 
and the need for drivers to 
search for available delivery 
space. 

The Transportation Department 
plans to utilize larger, consolidated 
areas for loading needs to accommo- 
date the activity of all businesses on 
a block rather than existing practices 
whereby individual merchants re- 
quest many small loading zones. 
Most loading zones in the program's 
pilot area, with the exception of 
those designated for specific use 
such as hospitals, hotels, etc., will be

An additional 2,250 feet of loading 
zone space will be added to the ex- 
isting 6,350 linear feet. The addi- 
tional footage will be located at: 
Court Square, at rear of One Bos- 
ton Place, 200 ft.

tween Milk and Franklin, 200 ft. 
Devonshire Street, from State to 

Water, 200 ft. 
Milk Street, from Arch to Devon- 
shire, 60 ft. 
Enforcement Strategy 

The pilot program's enforcement 
strategy is twofold. A concentration 
of Parking Enforcement Officers will 
be assigned to the pilot area to ticket 
all unauthorized, non-commercial ve- 
hicles parking in loading zones, 
those vehicles which are double 
parked, and those vehicles exceed- 
ing the thirty-minute time restriction. 
A fleet of seventeen Boston Trans- 
portation Department tow trucks will 
enforce the regulations of the Load- 
ing Zone Program while continuing 
to actively monitor the Traffic Relief 
Program on Congress, Tremont, and 
Arlington Streets.

derick has acquired exceptional skills and exper- 
tise in the field of law enforcement, labor relations 
and management. It should be noted that Mr. Bro- 
derick's salary as a Deputy Commissioner is 
$533.74 per week; but as a Principal Administrative

II. HIGH COMMENDATIONS 

On November 12, 1986, at 0345 hours, Engine 
Company 7 responded to a still alarm, AFA signal, 
for an alarm of fire at 78 Charles Street South, the 
Milner Hotel. 

Upon arrival, heavy fire and smoke were re- 
ported from the fourth floor rear. 

Engine Company 7 advanced a 2-1/2-inch line 
via the interior front stairwell to the fourth floor 
where the members encountered heavy fire. 

Before the line was charged, Fire Fighter Robert 
M. Linnell of Engine Company 7 heard screams 
from an upper floor. He proceeded to the fifth floor 
which was heavily charged with smoke. Fire was 
extending up from the fourth floor via an outer court 
and a light shaft. 

Fire Fighter Linnell made his way down the fifth 
floor hallway directly above the heavy fire and en- 
tered a room where he believed the cry originated. 
After crawling to a window, he observed a woman 
holding a year-old child in one arm and an infant in 
the other at the edge of a roof. This woman had 
jumped from the roof of the fire building to an adja- 
cent roof at 74 Warrenton Street. The woman had 
walked the ridge pole and apparently slipped or 
panicked and slid down the roof which had a 50 de- 
gree pitch. 

Fire Fighter Linnell immediately removed his air 
mask and leaped out of the window which was in 
line with the edge of the pitched roof. He landed on 
his stomach and crawled across the roof some 20 



feet until he reached the distraught woman and 
children. The woman had stopped her fall when her 
feet hit the gutter. Fire Fighter Linnell managed to 
hold each of the children and calm the woman who, 
in the opinion of fire, police officers and bystanders, 
was intent in jumping until the arrival of Ladder 
Company 1 5 who removed them to safety. 

Because Fire Fighter Robert M. Linnell of Engine 
Company 7, by his quick action and at extreme per- 
sonal risk to his own life, saved the lives of the 
woman and two children, the Fire Commissioner is 
pleased to highly commend him and refers his case 
to the Board of Merit for further consideration. 



On November 12, 1986, at 0345 hours, Ladder 
Company 1 7 responded to a still alarm, AFA signal, 
for an alarm of fire at 78 Charles Street South, the 
Milner Hotel. 

Upon arrival, Ladder Company 17 noted heavy 
smoke showing from the upper floors. Box 1512 
was transmitted. Three alarms were eventually 
struck to control the fire and life hazard. 

While ladders were being raised, Fire Fighter 
Reynolds A. Shepherd, Ladder Company 17, was 
ordered to the fourth floor where heavy fire and 
smoke were encountered from rooms to the left of a 
long corridor. Fire Fighter Shepherd heard scream- 
ing from the end of this corridor. He made his way 
down this hallway, past the fire in rooms to his left. 
Near the end of this passageway, he found a 
woman and two infants. They were in a desperate 
state He carried the two children and led the 
woman back down the corridor, past the fire, to 
safety via the stairway to the street. 

Because Fire Fighter Reynolds A. Shepherd, 
Ladder Company 17, performed these rescues at 
great personal risk and under extremely difficult 
conditions, before effective ventilation had been 
performed and while lines of hose were being run, 
the Fire Commissioner is pleased to highly com- 
mend him and refers his case to the Board of Merit 
for further consideration. 

III. COMMENDATION 

Acting Deputy Fire Chief John A. Lockhead, all 
uniformed personnel and the fire alarm operating 
force, who participated in operations at Box 13- 
1283 (six alarms) on December 9, 1986, are com- 
mended for extraordinary performance of duty 
under extremely difficult conditions. 

Special notice is made of Fire Lieutenant Francis 
L. McLaughlin, Engine Company 42, and Fire 
Fighter David C. Johnson, Engine Company 50, 
who voluntarily climbed up a blind elevator shaft ap- 
proximately 50 feet above the basement and en- 
tered through the top of the elevator to reach two 
female occupants. They then hoisted up manual 
tools, opened the elevator doors, broke through the 
wall into the corridor and assisted the women to 
safety.

Copy System Lease and Maintenance 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
dispense with public advertising and award a con- 
tract to A. B. Dick Company, Waltham , for the period 
November 1 , 1 985, to J une 30, 1 986, at a cost not to 
exceed $4,251 .84. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will furnish a lease for one A.B. Dick copy system, in 
addition to a one-year maintenance agreement. 
Costs of the lease and maintenance agreement will 
be paid from external funds under the Neighbor- 
hood Development Agency. 

Understate law, any Massachusetts municipality 
may make purchases under state contracts which 
have been publicly advertised and awarded by the 
Collective Purchasing Bureau, Department of Ad- 
ministration and Finance. In order to take advan- 
tage of these state contracts, the city's Law 
Department has ruled that the city must award its 
own contracts, based on the state awards. Since 
the above-named company was the lowest accept- 
able bidder on publicly advertised bids for copy ma- 
chines for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 
and existing contracts with the Department of Fi- 
nance and Administration; they are a responsible 
firm and they are qualified to fulfill the requirement 
of their contract; and the price is reasonable, it is my 
opinion that public interest would not be served by 
publicly advertising for bids. 

Very truly yours, 

Leo J. Burke, 
Business Manager.

pertise of the contractor in providing such services, 
it is my determination that the public interest would 
not be served by public advertisement for bids. 
Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson, 
Superintendent. 

TREASURY DEPARTMENT 
Bond Coverage 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
dispense with public advertising and to award a 
contract to Bernard R. Baldwin, an insurance 
agent, located at 274 Summer Street, for bond cov- 
erage for the Treasury Department. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will provide bond coverage for the Collector-Trea- 
surer, four Assistant Collector-Treasurers, and all 
employees of the department. The contractor is 
specially qualified to do this work because they 
have been in the business for over thirty years. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $10,150, which I have determined to be rea- 
sonable for the work to be performed. The term of 
the contract shall be from August 1, 1985, to June 
30, 1986. 

Because Bernard R. Baldwin is especially quali- 
fied in the area of municipal bonding and because 
the firm has serviced the Treasury Department for 



13 



over twenty years, I believe that public advertising 
would serve no useful purpose. 

Respectfully, 

George A. Russell, Jr., 
Collector- Treasurer. 

SUFFOLK COUNTY 
REGISTRY OF DEEDS 

Data Processing Programs, etc. 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
dispense with public advertising and award a con- 
tract to Computer Assistant Inc. , Wellesley, for serv- 
ices as a consultant and data processing 
programmer. The terms of this contract will be Octo- 
ber 1, 1985, through June 30, 1986, at $60 per hour 
by appointment; $250 minimum for four hours for 
emergency calls; with a cost not to exceed $4,000. 

This firm has been recommended by IBM and 
has done some preliminary emergency work on our 
computer programs. They have demonstrated their 
availability and their specialized knowledge neces- 
sary to keep our programs running and to make 
needed improvements and modifications. 

Becauser of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be performed, I believe that public advertis- 
ing would serve no useful purpose. 

We hope for your approval on this matter. 
Very truly yours, 

Paul R. Tierney, 
Register of Deeds.

the specifications for the obligations of the contrac- 
tor and subcontractor to take affirmative action in 
connection with employment practices in the per- 
formance of this contract. 

Attention to All Bidders 

I. Minority Business Requirements: 

No bid for the award of this project will be consid- 
ered acceptable unless the general contractor 
complies fully with the following requirements for 
minority business enterprise utilization. 

Pursuant to the Supplemental Minority Participa- 
tion section of this contract, the general contractor 
must give satisfactory assurance that at least 1 
percent of his bid price shall be expended for minor- 
ity business enterprise, if the bid is over $10,000. 
For the purpose of this paragraph, the term minority 
business enterprise means a business in which at 
least 51 percent of the beneficial ownership and 
control is held by one or more minority persons 
(Black, Hispanic, Asian-American, or American In- 
dian). 

Each general contractor must complete, sign, 
and file with his bid the Minority Business Utilization 
Form. The Minority Business Utilization Form shall 
be completed and signed by the minority business 
enterprise and the general contractor. Failure to 
submit a Minority Business Utilization Form with 
the bid proposal will result in the rejection of the bid. 

The City of Boston Minority Business Directory 
lists all minority-owned businesses that have been 
certified as such by the City of Boston . A copy of this 
directory can be obtained from the Awarding Au- 
thority or the Minority Business Office, 15 Beacon 
Street, fifth floor, Boston, MA 02108, telephone 
number 720-4300. If a contractor wishes to use a 
minority business that is not listed in the directory, 
he must contact the Minority Business Office to ob- 
tain a copy and submit with his bid, a Minority Busi- 
ness Identification Statement. The dollar amount 
obligated to a non-certified (City of Boston) minority 
business will not count towards the minority busi- 
ness percentage requirements. 

II. Workforce Requirements: 

During the performance of this contract, the gen- 
eral contractor shall agree and shall require that his 
subcontractors agree to the following workforce re- 
quirements (labor). 

1 . Minority Workforce: The contractor and its sub- 
contractors shall maintain a not less than 25 per- 
cent ratio of minority manhours to total employee 
manhours in each trade worked on the contract. 

2. Female Workforce: The contractor and its sub- 
contractors shall maintain a not less than 10 per- 
cent ratio of female employee manhours to total 
employee manhours in each trade worked on the 
contract. 



3. Boston Residents: The contractor and its sub- 
contractors shall maintain a not less than 50 per- 
cent ratio of Boston resident employee manhours 
to total employee manhours in each trade worked 
on the contract. 

4. The workforce requirements of paragraphs (1 ), 
(2), and (3) above shall apply to each trade that ap- 
pears on the list of "Classification and Minimum 
Wage Rates" as determined by the Commissioner 
of Labor and Industries under the provisions of 
chapter 149, sections 26 through 27G, of the Gen- 
eral Laws of Massachusetts, as amended. If you 
have any questions pertaining to the applicability of 
these requirements, please call the Compliance Of- 
fice at 720-4300. 

NOTICE OF REQUIREMENT FOR AFFIRMATIVE 
ACTION TO ENSURE EQUAL EMPLOYMENT 
OPPORTUNITY (EXECUTIVE ORDER 
11246). 

The contractor's attention is called to the "Equal 
Opportunity Clause" and "Standard Federal Equal 
Opportunity Construction Contract Specifications" 
set forth in this part.

participation are expressed in percentage terms for 
the contractor's aggregate workforce in each trade 
on all construction work in the covered areas. (See 
pages EEO-1 and EEO-2 of the bid specifications 
for goals and timetables.) 

These goals are applicable to all the contractor's

erally assisted) performed in the covered areas.

be based on its implementation of the equal oppor- 
tunity clause, specific affirmative action obligations 
required to meet the goals established for the geo- 
graphical area where the contract is to be per- 
formed. 

The hours of minority and female employment 
and training must be substantially uniform through- 
out the length of the contract in each trade, and the

minorities and women evenly on each of its proj- 
ects. 

The transfer of minority or female employees or 
trainees from contractor to contractor or from proj- 
ect to project for the sole purpose of meeting the 
contractor's goals shall be a violation of the con- 
tract, the Executive Order and the regulations in 41 
CFR Part 60-4. Compliance with the goals will be

million dollars over the next two years. 
In 1986, our programs and serv- 



ices benefited over 85,000 of the 
city's youth. Our goal this year will 
be to serve 100,000. A key ingredi- 
ent of this effort will be expanding 
upon our highly successful youth out- 
reach initiative. 

It is my intention that the programs 
that will be expanded or developed 
through this initiative have two goals: 

1. To increase the capacity of pro- 
grams that have proven to be 
successful at accomplishing one 
or more of the following for youth: 

• to increase their employment 
opportunities 

• to successfully complete school- 
ing 

• to increase their health status 

• to increase their partnership in 
community programs and public 
affairs 

2. To provide outreach and access to 
these programs for high-risk youth. 

Highlights of the Youth Partnership: 

Through the Youth Partnership, 
program expansions will be built on 
the working relationships that we 
have established with neighborhood 
organizations, the private sector, hu- 
man service agencies, parents and 
youth. Toward this end, I will host a 
series of meetings with representa- 
tives of parent organizations, human 
service associations and collabora- 
tives, child welfare specialists, 
coaches, health care professionals, 
and the city's youth leadership. I be- 
lieve that such a dialogue will gener- 
ate essential interaction between 
those most knowledgeable about the 
city's youth. 
Objectives: 

1. To increase funding and support 
of youth outreach initiatives that 



link youth with programs and 
services. Through the efforts de- 
scribed below we intend to make 
contact with, and provide informa- 
tion and advocacy to 10,000 
youths throughout Boston's neigh- 
borhoods: 

• to expand the existing Commu- 
nity Schools outreach program 
which is currently in four neigh- 
borhoods to every neighbor- 
hood in the city. We will 
sponsor dozens of street- 
workers through local commu- 
nity schools, recreation facili- 
ties, and private, nonprofit 
agencies; 

• to establish a "court diversion" 
component of the youth out- 
reach initiative which will station 
youth workers in five district 
courthouses to work with first- 
time juvenile offenders and their 
probation officers. The goal is 
to prevent the development of 
long-term patterns of delin- 
quency or criminal behavior; 

• to double the number of calls 
received by the "Teen Line" op- 
erated by Health and Hospitals 
in partnership with private foun- 
dations. The Teen Line provides 
information and assistance to 
teens with problems ranging 
from drug abuse to home vio- 
lence; 

• to develop a comprehensive 
youth leadership program for 
fifty to one hundred Hispanic 
and Asian youths; 

To increase access to jobs, job 
training and education. 
Specifically we seek the establish- 
ment of the following: 
» the creation of seven, neighbor- 
hood-based "JobStops" which 



would offer job preparation and 
counseling referrals to jobs, job 
training programs, education 
and literacy programs, and in- 
formation regarding financial 
aid, day care, and transporta- 
tion services. These sites will 
provide assistance to 3,000 
youths; 

• expansion of the number of 
summer jobs by 500 this year, 
making 6,100 jobs available 
through the city's collaborative 
summer employment programs; 

• that 1,000 unemployed youths 
be linked to downtown employ- 
ment opportunities through edu- 
cation and job training 
programs over the next twelve 
months. 

To decrease the number of high 
school dropouts through the ex- 
pansion of dropout prevention 
and re-entry programs. 

• to create 140 new seats for out- 
of-school, middle- and high- 
school-aged youths through the 
Boston Community Schools Al- 
ternative Education Programs; 

• to create 250 new seats for out-of- 
school, high-school-aged youths 
through the Mayor's Office of 
Jobs and Community Services 
alternative education providers; 

• to serve a total of 2,200 out-of- 
school and at-risk youths in 
conjunction with the School De- 
partment by providing basic 
skill instruction, GED prepara- 
tion, remediation, and support 
services. 

The creation of the following drug 
abuse prevention and education 
programs using funding from the 
city and private sector. 

• providing mandatory school- 
based drug education to every 
fourth and fifth grader enrolled 
in Boston's public and parochial 
schools through a cooperative

venture, including the Boston 
public and parochial school sys- 
tems, the Police Department, 
and Mayor's Office beginning 
this month; 

• develop a partnership between 
the Chamber of Commerce, the 
Mayor's Office, and Boston 
Community Schools to provide 
drug abuse prevention and edu- 
cational activities throughout 
the city's fifteen neighborhoods. 
These activities will become a 
mandatory requirement of new 
and existing youth activities and 
programs. 

5. To increase recreational and ath- 
letic programs offered through the 
Community Schools, Parks and 
Recreation Department and Police 
Athletic League. We intend to ac- 
complish the following over the 
next twelve months: 

• reopening all the city's pools 
and bringing seven, closed rec- 
reational facilities back on line 
through our capital improve- 
ment program; 

• in conjunction with the Massa- 
chusetts Special Olympics 
Committee, establish the first 
City of Boston Special Olympics 
Program which will serve over 
700 handicapped youths this 
year; 

• double the number of summer 
youth Olympic and neighbor- 
hood field days sponsored by 
the Parks Department over the 
last year; 

• establishing new summer recre- 
ation programs through the 
Parks Department, including in- 
creasing Mayor's cup events 
from two to eight, a summer 
running program, and baseball 
clinics. The Police Athletic 
League will be complementing 
these activities through the 
"PAL Sportsmobile," which will 
provide activities for youths this 
summer, including block parties 
and recreational activities in 
neighborhoods and housing de- 
velopments; 

• linking the Parks Department, 
Police Athletic League, and 
other recreational activities to 
our youth outreach and peer 
leadership programs. 



6. To increase the capacity of exist- 
ing health programs for youth 
through the following initiatives: 

• implementation of a Violence 
Prevention Program based in 
the South Boston and Roxbury 
neighborhoods. This program 
will provide education to youths 
and organizations working with 
youths on means to prevent vio- 
lence. As part of this campaign 
and in conjunction with the Ad- 
vertising Club we will be 
launching a violence-prevention 
media campaign; 

• expanding the Healthy Baby 
Program operated by the De- 
partment of Health and Hospi- 
tals which currently provides 
health care to high-risk preg- 
nant women to providing fol- 
lowup and health care to high- 
risk infants for at least several 
years after their birth; 

• implementation or expansion of 
programs that will prevent and 
treat child abuse, children born 
with AIDS or addicted to drugs; 

• support the establishment of pi- 
lot, school-based health pro- 
grams by the beginning of the 
new school year. Similar pro- 
grams in other cities have 
proven successful in increasing 
health care services to adoles- 
cents, and in decreasing drop- 
out rates due to teen

important program to be suc-

revision of the proposal by the

On December 9, 1986, at 1740 hours, the Tower

Square, Box 13-1283 (six alarms). 

Upon arrival, it was reported that several explo- 
sions were heard in the basement and that persons 
working in the electrical room may be trapped. 

Members of the Tower Unit, Engine 1 and Res- 
cue 1 descended down the stairway through heavy, 
black smoke, while explosions were continuing, to 
the sub-basement 

Fire Lieutenant Richard L. Hartnett and Fire 
Fighter on Probation Gregory J. Mackin of the 
Tower Unit heard a victim calling for help in the elec- 
trical switching gear room. They entered the room 
and made an intensive search down passageways 
lined with burning and exploding electrical equip- 
ment and with no visibility to assist them. 

They located a semiconscious, seriously burned 
worker. While Lieutenant Hartnett removed his face 
mask and placed it on the victim, Fire Fighter on 
Probation Mackin made his way back to the room 
entrance and directed Lieutenant Hartnett with the 
victim back to safety. 

Both of these members performed these duties 
under very hazardous conditions and at great per- 
sonal risk. The Fire Commissioner is pleased to 
highly commend them and refers their cases to the 
Board of Merit for further consideration.

MAYOR COMMENTS ON FEDERAL FY88 BUDGET 



Statement of Mayor Raymond L. Flynn, Chairman, U.S. Conference of Mayors' 
Task Force on Hunger and Homelessness, on the Reagan Administration's Pro- 
posed FY88 Budget. 

The Reagan Administration's proposed Fiscal Year 1988 federal budget 
proposes to add hopelessness to the worsening problem of homelessness in 
the American city. Congress would do well to give this budget a one-day 
hearing, then vote it down by the end of the month so that the remainder of 
the year might be spent on serious approaches to reduce the federal deficit 
and address our domestic priorities. 

This year, we see an administration which has been criticized for its lack 
of responsiveness to the needs of the increasing homeless population in 
America, inserting rhetoric, instead of real action on this issue. 

The administration proposes to increase funding for the Federal Emer- 
gency Management Agency's Emergency Food and Shelter program by $10 
million — while reducing the Emergency Shelter Grants program of the De- 
partment of Housing and Urban Development by the same $10 million. 

The administration proposes to "direct that more efforts be made to en- 
sure that the homeless have access to entitlement programs" without men- 
tioning that this priority was mandated by Congress in 1986 legislation. 
The administration proposes to be from $22.2 million to $40 million, de- 



"encouraging states and local gov- 
ernments to use federal grant funds 
such as the Community Development 
Block Grant (CDBG) ... to assist the 
homeless." At the same time, the ad- 
ministration is proposing a $375 mil- 
lion rescission of Fiscal Year 1987 
CDBG funds and a cut of $500 mil- 
lion for FY 88 — loss of $3.2 million 
for Boston. 

The only way that homeless fami- 
lies can gain shelter through the 
Reagan budget is to join the military. 
While the Department of Housing 
and Urban Development proposes to 
eliminate all new funds for family 
housing as part of $3.4 billion in 
housing cuts, the Defense Depart- 
ment is requesting a $362 million in- 
crease in funds for military family 
housing. 

Some agencies of the federal gov- 
ernment fare better than the home- 
less in gaining increased federal 
dollars. The White House operating 
oudget, for example, rises from $4.7 
Trillion to $7.4 million, a 54 percent 
ncrease. The Agriculture Depart- 
ment's administrative budget rises 



spite proposed cuts in farm subsi- 
dies. The Small Business Admin- 
istration's salaries go up by 20 per- 
cent, while program authority is cut 
in half. 

The Reagan Administration's FY 
88 budget proposal is a budget that 
is increasingly boxed in by its own 
constraints. Domestic programs such 
as revenue sharing or low-income 
housing have already been elimi- 
nated or cut to the bone. The only 
recourse for an administration that 
won't raise taxes or cut defense 
spending is to cut a few more 
threads in the already tattered social 
safety net. 

This year, Congress should rapidly 
dispose of the administration's 
budget and instead, develop a 
budget that invests in our future, in- 
stead of divesting us of our responsi- 
bilities. 

We need a federal government 
that protects our senior citizens from 
the ravages of expensive medical 
care. 

We need a federal government 
that works in partnership with state 



and local government to assure a de- 
cent home for all Americans — par- 
ticularly our increasing number of 
homeless families. 

We need a federal government to 
assure that our young people can as- 
pire to a better life with a decent ed- 
ucation and a good job. 

Let's dispense with these timeworn 
proposals and get on with the impor- 
tant business of developing effective 
initiatives to solve critical problems 
such as homelessness.

CONTRACTS AWARDED 
WITHOUT ADVERTISING 

The Mayor has approved the 
awarding of contracts without ad- 
vertising, based on the following 
communications: 

ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES DEPARTMENT 
Services to Washington Staff 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

I respectfully request authorization to dispense 
with public advertising and to renew the city's exist- 
ing contract with the National Center for Municipal 
Development, Inc., of Washington, DC, in an 
amount not to exceed $45,000, for the period July 1 , 
1985, to June 30, 1986. 

Under the terms of this contract, N.CM.D. will 
continue to provide all office services to the city's 
Washington staff, including xerox, postage, tele- 
phones, supplies, etc., travel planning, advances, 
accounting services and fiscal administration; and 
to lease office space not to exceed the amount of 
$8,400 to the City of Boston at Washington, D C. 
The contractor is uniquely qualified to perform this 
service and has been providing this service to the 
city for the last eight years in a professional and 
timely manner. 

In view of the professional nature of the services 
to be performed, I believe that public advertising 
would serve no useful purpose. 

This letter of award is being submitted late due to 
budgetary delays and administration oversight. 
Sincerely, 

Raymond C. Dooley, 
Director. 

Collective Bargaining Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to dis- 
pense with public advertising and to award a con- 
tract to James B. Cox, Esquire, of One Walnut 
Street. 

Under the terms of the contract, James Cox will 
assist the city in negotiating various collective bar- 
gaining agreements for Fiscal Year 1986 with the 
City of Boston employee unions. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $25,000, an amount I have determined to be 
reasonable for the work performed. Payment for 
services associated with this contract shall be 
charged to appropriation 1-01-47-290. The hourly 
rate shall be $100 per hour. 

The term of this contract shall be from September 
30, 1985, through June 30, 1986. 

Mr. Cox is uniquely qualified to perform this serv- 
ice because of his past experience in all aspects of 
the labor relations function as a member and, ulti- 
mately, supervisor of the city's Labor Relations Of- 
fice. 

Sincerely, 

Raymond C. Dooley, 
Director. 



Mailing Services, etc. 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

I respectfully request authorization to dispense 
with public advertising in the award of a contract to 
Coleman Bookbindery Corporation, of 363 Albany 
Street, in an amount not to exceed $4,500, for the 
period of July 1, 1985, through June 30, 1986. 

Under the terms of this contract, Coleman Book- 
bindery Corporation will continue to provide the 
services necessary for the timely distributiori of the 
City Record to over 800 subscribers. This ongoing 
service includes designing address stamps for 
each new subscriber; addressing each individual 
publication and delivering them to the Post Office; 
and updating and maintaining the City Record mail- 
ing list and the address plates. 

In view of the professional nature of the services 
to be performed, I believe that public advertising 
would serve no useful purpose. 

The responsibility for the essential service pro- 
vided by the City Record has recently been as- 
sumed by the Administrative Services Department 
and is the reason this award letter is being submit- 
ted for approval after the July 1 st deadline. 
Very truly yours, 

Raymond C. Dooley, 
Director. 



Purchasing Division 
Communications Equipment 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

The ASD/Purchasing Division has received a 
requisition from the ASD/Management Information 
Systems Division for the lease/purchase of twelve 
multiple switch selected DSV/CSY service units. 
These units would upgrade the current digital da- 
taphone service lines located within the Adminis- 
trative Services Department, Data Processing 
Center, Room 103, in City Hall. 

The term of this contract shall be a four-year per- 
iod from March 15, 1985, through March 14, 1989. 
The total cost of this contract over the forty-eight 
months term of this agreement shall not exceed 
$12,416.64, and shall be charged to appropriation 
code 1-01-49-490. 

The estimated savings projected, using the cur- 
rent costs of maintaining this system, is $31 ,359.33 
over a period of forty-eight months. At the end of the 
term of this contract, the City of Boston will own this 
equipment and will be required to pay only mainte- 
nance costs of the equipment. 

Due to the technical problems inherent in identi- 
fying the responsibilities of multiple vendors when 
data circuits malfunction, MIS operational experi- 
ence dictates maintaining a single vendor circuit in- 
tegrity for critical equipment. 

As A T. & T. Information Systems is a reliable 
manufacturer of communications equipment, has a 
history of providing continuous reliable service to 
the City of Boston, and has offered the city a cost 
savings that can not be matched at this time, I feel 
no useful purpose would be gained from public ad- 
vertising. 

Therefore, your Honor's permission is respect- 
fully requested to award a contract, without public 
advertising, to AT. & T. Information Systems, Inc., 
100 Summer Street, in the amount of $12,416.64, 
net, a cost I consider reasonable. 

This request is being submitted at this late date 
due to administrative delays incurred while lease/ 
purchase negotiations were being conducted. 
Respectfully yours, 

John F. Scalcione, 
Purchasing Agent.

ASSESSING DEPARTMENT 
Revaluation Process Analysis 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
dispense with public advertising and to award a 
contract to Mark Kiley, Lawrence, for financial anal- 
ysis of the current revaluation process. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will assist the Assessing Department in the calcula- 
tion, analysis and impact of trends and shifts of the 
current revaluation. The contractor also will review 
projections and analyze possible abatement im- 
pact. Also the contractor will assist in establishing 
guidelines for Clause 1 8 exemptions. 

The contractor is recognized as an expert in local 
municipal fiscal affairs and is a former treasurer of 
the Mass. Bay Transit Authority. 

The contract is for the period December 1 , 1 985, 
through June 30, 1986, at a cost not to exceed 
$1 0,000, which I have determined to be reasonable 
for the work to be performed. The contractor will be 
paid at the rate of $65 per hour. 

Because of the professional and technical nature 
of the services to be performed, no useful purpose 
would be served by public advertising. 

Sincerely, 

William B. Coughlin, 
Commissioner. 



Boston Massacre Site 

At this site, on March 5, 1770, a 
British guard of nine soldiers clashed 
with an unruly mob, resulting in the 
death of five colonists— including 
Crispus Attucks, an early black 
patriot. 



Old North Church, Christ Church 

Built in 1723, "Old North," or Christ 
Church, in Boston is the city's oldest 
standing church. On April 18, 1775, 
two lanterns hung from the steeple 
signalled to patriots across the river 
that the British were on their way to 
Concord "by sea."

RAYMOND L. FLYNN CHRONICLE, MUNICIPAL AFFA>RdL™^£I^ 

MAYOR OF BOSTON PRESIDEN ), CITY OTNCIt ' 

VOL. 79 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 2, 1987 NO. 5 



MAYOR FLYNN CAMPAIGNS AGAINST DRUGS 



A partnership of Boston-area businesses, community groups and the City 
of Boston — called Boston Against Drugs (BAD) — has launched a sweeping 
educational campaign aimed at educating residents about drugs and combat- 
ting drug use in the city. 

The effort represents the first step in Boston's new Youth Partnership 
Program, recently announced by Mayor Raymond Flynn. 

New England Telephone President Gerry Freche, Mayor Flynn, School 
Superintendent Laval Wilson, Police Commissioner Mickey Roache, Parochial 
Schools Superintendent Fr. Eugene Sullivan, and community leaders have 
announced that the major focus of the campaign will be to create a negative 
image of drug use while reinforcing alternatives to substance abuse. 



Statement of Mayor Raymond L. 
Flynn Announcing the Boston 
Against Drugs Initiative. 

With the announcement of our new 
Boston Against Drugs (BAD) cam- 
paign, we have kicked off a key part 
of the Boston Youth Partnership. 

Boston Against Drugs is a five-way 
partnership, resulting from months of 
planning involving the business com- 
munity, Boston public and parochial 
schools, the Police Department, and 
my administration, to come up with 
new ways to confront drug abuse. 

But we don't want to do all the 
talking. We plan to listen to what the 
<ids themselves have to say about 
drug problems in their neighbor- 
noods, and to use this information to 
enhance our programs. 

Special thanks must go to the Bos- 
on business community for their es- 
sential support of this project, and 
especially to Gerhard Freche for an- 
swering the call this summer to mar- 
shal city resources in the battle 
against crack, and for developing 
3AD's umbrella campaign to bring all 
3oston's players together in the fight 
against drugs. 

BAD's three-pronged attack against 
irug abuse starts in the schools. For 
he first time, a mandatory substance 
ibuse curriculum to grades five and 
;ix is in the Boston public schools, 
"he same curriculum will also be in- 
roduced to fifth graders at the city's 
>arochial schools. 

L 



Boston police officers have been 
assigned to run these education pro- 
grams, which are based on anti- 
crack education programs in the New 
York school system. 

These in-school programs will be 
reinforced outside the schools in the 
neighborhoods where these kids live. 
In a fifty-fifty partnership with the 
city, Boston businesses have agreed 
to lend an executive who will work 
full time in neighborhood community 
schools and recreation centers devel- 
oping programs to discourage drug 
use. 

Through a number of city-business 
community partnerships we have al- 
ready recruited many young people 
from Boston's neighborhoods to 
share in employment opportunities 
created by Boston's booming down- 
town. Now we have come full circle 
in those efforts as businesses move 
out to the neighborhoods to bring 
drug education to these kids' home 
turf. 

Thirdly, we will link the in-school 
and out-of-school programs through 
public service announcements in the 
local media to create awareness of 
BAD and to reach those not reached 
by the other programs. 

Together with other ongoing city 
initiatives, we hope to present a for- 
midable front against drug abuse in 
Boston. With the help of New En- 
gland Telephone we have made and 
distributed an anti-crack video to 



every school in Boston. We are now 
distributing the video and an accom- 
panying poster to every public library, 
video store, and social service 
agency in Boston. 

The partnership will also partici- 
pate in a series of neighborhood 
seminars on crack, in city-wide par- 
ents workshops, and in employee 
substance abuse programs in Bos- 
ton-area businesses, and will serve 
to coordinate other drug education 
activities. 



BOSTON CAN SHARE 

The last financial donations to Mayor 
Flynn's Boston Can Share Food Drive 
was presented last week at City Hall to 
the Boston Food Bank by a group of de- 
velopers and unions including Struc- 
ture Tone, Inc., the International 
Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, and 
Cone and Company. Their $1 ,250 do- 
nation brought the total Boston Can 
Share donations to over 22,000 cans 
and over $7,000 in cash — sufficient to 
provide over 15 tons of food to hungry 
Boston families this winter. 

The checks were presented to Li Wil- 
liams of the Boston Food Bank by Jack 
Powers, Mayor's Office of Business and 
Cultural Development; Frank Nigro, 
IBEW Local 103; Don Sabourin, Struc- 
ture Tone, Inc.; Bart Mitchell, Mayor's 
Office; and Peter Miller, Cone and Com- 
pany. 



MAYOR URGES USE OF 
24-HOUR HOTLINES 

The recent inclement and cold 
weather has prompted Mayor Raymond 
L. Flynn to remind city residents of the 
no-heat hotline and the Department of 
Public Works hotline which will be open 
24 hours a day all weekends, to respond 
to complaints of unplowed or unsanded 
streets and to respond to residents who 
have insufficient or no heat or hot water. 
(Continued on next page) 



24-Hour Hotlines . . . 

(Continued from previous page) 

"We want to guarantee all Boston 
residents that their complaints will be 
responded to with all due speed. Partic- 
ularly tenants' complaints of no heat. 
This administration will not tolerate heat 
being turned off," said Mayor Flynn. 

The staff of the Inspectional Services 
Department's Housing Inspection Divi- 
sion will be available during the week- 
end to investigate complaints and 
contact landlords and to ensure compli- 
ance with the legal heating minimums. 

City law requires owners who supply 
heat to maintain a temperature of at 
least 68 degrees in every habitable 
room between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. and at 
least 64 degrees between 11 p.m. and 7 
a.m. The law is in effect during the heat- 
ing season, which runs from September 
15th to June 15th. The Mayor's HEAT 
HOTLINE number is 725-4500. 

The DPW hotline will respond to resi- 
dents' complaints of unplowed and un- 
sanded roads. A major problem for 
DPW crews during a snow emergency 
are illegally or poorly parked cars which 
block salt spreaders and plows. The 
number for the DPW's HOTLINE is 725- 
3050. 

Both of the hotlines are in operation 
throughout the cold weather season.

CONTRACTS AWARDED 
WITHOUT ADVERTISING 

The Mayor has approved the 
awarding of contracts without ad- 
vertising, based on the following 
communications: 

ASSESSING DEPARTMENT 

Public Affairs Strategies 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
dispense with public advertising and to award a 
contract to Dovetail Consulting, a strategic man- 
agement firm located at Boston, for professional 
consulting services to the Asssessing Department. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will assist the Assessing Department in identifying 
and developing public affairs strategies and op- 
tions for better explaining to the public the asssess- 
ing practices of the City of Boston. 

Strategies will be reviewed with the staff and tai- 
lored to fit the particular needs of a number of differ- 
ent areas of responsibility of the assessor, 
including, as needed, levels of assessment exemp- 
tions and cases under litigation. Inclusive in the 
contractor's scope of responsibilities will be the im- 
plementation of these strategies. 

The contractor is specifically qualified to do this 
work because of its expertise in the field of public 
affairs and strategic management. 

Compensation under the contract shall not ex- 
ceed $20,000, which I have determined to be rea- 
sonable for the work to be performed. The 
contractor will be paid at the rate of $70 per hour 
and reimbursed for other reasonable expenses ap- 
proved by the official. The terms of the contract 
shall be from November 1 5, 1 985, through June 30, 
1986. 

Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be performed, I believe that public advertis- 
ing would serve no useful purpose. 

Sincerely, 

William B. Coughlin, 
Commissioner. 

COMMUNITY SCHOOLS 
Auditing Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities Com- 
mission, I hereby request your Honor's permission 
to dispense with public advertising and to award a 
contract to Bertram S. Jacobs, CPA, Needham. 

The services to be provided are an audit of the 
fiscal year 1 985 Community Counseling Child Care 
Programs according to the DSS Audit Guide. The 
term for this contract shall be December 2, 1 985, to 
June 30, 1986, at a cost not to exceed $9,400, a 
cost which I have determined to be reasonable. 

Over the past several years, Mr. Jacobs lias pro- 
vided excelient and successful audit services for a 
number of Community Schools Programs including 
the USDA Summer Lunch Programs for the years 
1978, 79, 82, 83, 84, and 85, and annual audits for 
various Community Schools. In view of the effi- 
ciency and expertise which Mr. Jacobs has exhib- 
ited in the past, I believe he is qualified to complete 
the services required by the above contract. 

For these reasons and the special nature of the 
services to be performed, it is my judgment that 
public advertising would serve no useful purpose. 
Respectfully yours, 

Lawrence Dwyer, 
Director.

and installed one McDonald Miller 51-2 automatic 
boiler water feeder and low water cut-off with nec- 
essary piping and electrical connections; furnished 
and installed one McDonald Miller 150 pump con- 
troller with necessary piping and electrical connec- 
tions; replaced three Hoffman float and 
thermostatic trap, steam radiator valves, section of 
steam baseboard; repaired leaks in steam lines 
and leaking shower valves. 

The cost of the work described above is $5,075, 
which will be paid pursuant to the city's existing 
contract with this firm, Contract 2012-86 for repeti- 
tive services for the fiscal year 1986. This contract 
requires the Mayor's approval for any single repair 
of $2,000 or more. 

This request is being submitted late after the 
work has been completed because the parts 
needed for repairs were not immediately available 
and had to be sent for, therefore causing a delay. 
The bill for the work done was not received for at 
least a month after completion of the work and a 
firm estimate was not immediately established. 

In my opinion the contractor is qualified to do the 
work herein described, inasmuch as P. J. Kennedy 
& Sons is thoroughly familiar with all types of work 
of the equipment. This price quoted for the work is 
reasonable and it does not appear that any lower 
price could be obtained by publicly advertising for 
bids and I believe that public advertising would 
serve no useful purpose. 

Very truly yours, 

Leo D. Stapleton, 
Fire Commissioner. 



BOSTON COMMON — Set aside 
in 1634 for a "trayning field" and 
"feeding of cattell". Here British 
troops were quartered, Colonials 
mustered for Quebec and Civil War 
Regiments assembled. And from 
what's Park Square now, the British 
set out for Lexington. Of particular 
interest are the Great Elm, branch of 
the original, older than Boston and 
scene of Colonial executions . . . and

NO. 6 



MAYOR OPENS PEDIATRIC AIDS PROGRAM 



Statement of Mayor Raymond L. Flynn opening of Comprehensive Pediatric Aids 
Program, Boston City Hospital, February 2, 1987. 
Last year, the city's Department of Health and Hospitals brought to my atten- 
tion a serious problem facing some of our youngest and most vulnerable residents: 
infants and toddlers with AIDS or AIDS-related complex in need of care. Many of 
these infants were orphans or came from single-parent families that could not prop- 
erly care for them at home. 



We identified the problem and under 
the leadership of Dr. Sandy Lamb put to- 
gether a program that would provide the 
services that these infants so desper- 
ately need. With funding from the state 
under the leadership of Governor Mi- 
chael Dukakis and the cooperation of 
Secretary of Human Services Philip 
Johnston and Public Health Commis- 
sioner Bailus Walker, Boston City Hos- 
pital is now fully equipped to provide 
care for the infants who are ravaged by 
this deadly disease. 

The Comprehensive Pediatric Aids 
Program, the first of its kind in the na- 
tion, will provide compassionate care in 
a homelike atmosphere, twenty-four- 
hours-a-day. In addition, parents will be 
given the support they need by the clin- 
ic's trained staff. 

To be afflicted with AIDS is a poten- 
tially isolating and tragic experience. 
But, the families that are dealing with 
the effects of this disease must know 
that they are not alone. Along with the 
city and state, businesses and commu- 
nity organizations have responded. On 
behalf of the children and families, I 
want to thank Filene's Basement, St. 
Jean's Parish, the School House of 
Quilters and all other donors for their 
generosity. 

The tragedy of AIDS is one that will 
not disappear on its own. It is a public 
health problem that is infecting increas- 
ing numbers of people. The opening of 
this respite care center is one of a num- 
ber of steps that the city has taken to 
fight AIDS. We have supported the work 
of the AIDS Action Committee with a 
$300,000 grant and in recent months 
we opened a half-day AIDS Clinic at 
Boston City Hospital. In the past year, 
the city has spent nearly $1 million on 
AIDS. We intend to substantially in- 
crease that amount this year. 



The city has reaffirmed its commit- 
ment to fighting the devastating dis- 
ease of AIDS. With the opening of the 
Comprehensive Pediatric Aids Pro- 
gram, the city is reaching a helping 
hand to this most vulnerable segment of 
our society. This type of facility will en- 
sure that children who have been dealt 
a terribly cruel blow by this disease are 
given a caring, compassionate hand to 
see them through. 

FACT SHEET 

Background — Comprehensive Pediat- 
ric Aids Program 

• The residential program at Boston 
City Hospital's Dowling Building will 
provide twenty-four-hour care for in- 
fants and toddlers with AIDS and AIDS- 
Related Complex. 

The program is set up as a homelike 
atmosphere for the children until their 
parents are able to care for them or until 
other parenting arrangements can be 
made. Additionally, the program's staff 
will provide support to the parents in 
learning about the HIV infection and 
about care for infected infants. 

• Infants and toddlers in need of 
placement will be eligible for the pro- 
gram during non-acute phases of their 
illness and will be accepted through re- 
ferrals from providers throughout the 
state. 

• Parents or guardians when able, 
will also care for the infants at the cen- 
ter. 

Background — AIDS 

• AIDS is the major public health 
problem not only in Boston, but in Mas- 
sachusetts, the United States, and 
around the world. There are 30,000 re- 
ported cases of AIDS in the United 
States, with as many as 3,000,000 peo- 
ple infected with the HIV virus. 



• In Massachusetts, there are 700 
cases of AIDS reported. Approximately 
half of those cases are in th e City of Bos- 
ton. In Boston , there are as many as one 
in twenty people already infected with 
the HIV virus. 

CONTRACTS AWARDED 
WITHOUT ADVERTISING 

The Mayor has approved the 
awarding of contracts without ad- 
vertising, based on the following 
communications: 

HEALTH AND HOSPITALS DEPARTMENT 
Therapists Services 

Dear Sir: 

Pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the 
Board of Health and Hospitals, I respectfully re- 
quest your Honor's permission to dispense with 
public advertising and award a contract to Center 
for Creative Art Therapies, 731 Harrison Avenue, 
for the period January 1 , 1986, through December 
31,1 986, at a cost not to exceed $3, 1 20. 

Under this contract, Center Art Therapies will 
provide a music therapist and an art therapist for 
the Geriatric Neuro-psychology patients at Boston 
City Hospital Services will be provided two hours 
each week. One hour will be dedicated to music 
therapy and one hour will be dedicated to art ther- 
apy. The cost for this service will be $30 per hour 

Geriatric Neuro-psychology patient care is very 
complex. The patients require individuals specially 
trained to deal with their needs. Center for Creative 
Arts Therapies has employees that have special- 
ized skills in working with the elderly in the areas of 
music and art therapy. There has been one prior un- 
advertised contract with the Center for Creative Art 
Therapies, for FY 1985 in the amount of $2,340. 

Therefore, because Center for Creative Art Ther- 
apies has therapists specially trained to provide 
these services, and because the cost, in my opin- 
ion, is reasonable, no benefit would inure to the city 
by publicly advertising for bids. 

This contract encompasses more than one fiscal 
year and the city's financial obligations are subject 
to the availability of an appropriation in accordance 
with the requirements of City of Boston Code, St. 4, 
ss. 4 and 8. 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

Sterilizer/Compactor Maintenance 

Dear Sir: 

Pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the 
Board of Health and Hospitals, I respectfully re- 
quest your Honor's permission to award a contract, 
(Continued on next page) 



(Continued from previous page) 

without advertising, to Total Mechanical Service 
Corp. , Plymouth , for the period November 1 , 1 985, 
through June 30, 1986, at a cost not to exceed 
$20,000. 

Under this contract, Total Mechanical Services, 
Corp. will provide maintenance and repair service 
excluding parts to the San-I-Pak, Mark 2002 sterili- 
zer/compactor located at Boston City Hospital from 
9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at a cost of 
$5,000. Additional funds in the amount of $1 5,000 
will be added to cover the cost of parts and emer- 
gency repairs done after normal business hours. 

Inasmuch as Total Mechanical Services Corp., 
employs the only factory authorized personnel to 
repair the above equipment no benefit would inure 
to the city by publicly advertising for bids. 

There was no prior contract for servicing the 
above equipment since the cost for repairs in fiscal 
1985, after expiration of the warranty, did not 
amount to $2,000. 

In view of the above, and as the cost, in my opin- 
ion, is reasonable, I recommend approval of this 
contract. 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

Respiratory Supplies, etc. 

Dear Sir: 

An invitation for bids, Proposal No. 442, to fur- 
nish respiratory therapy supplies and medical 
gases to the Department of Health and Hospitals 
was advertised in the City Record on August 10, 
1985. Bids were opened and publicly read on Sep- 
tember 3, 1985. Fifty-five companies were soloci- 
ted and thirty-four companies responded to the 
invitation to bid. 

Technically defective bids were received from the 
following vendors, who submitted the lowest bids 
meeting specification at prices I consider reason- 
able: 

Liquid Air Corporation, Pennslyvania, $61,000, 
net thirty days; and Inhalation Plastics, Inc., Illinois, 
$18,103, 2 percent 20, net thirty days. 

Therefore, because it is in the best interest of the 
city, pursuant to the authority delegated to me by 
the Board of Health and Hospitals, I respectfully re- 
quest your Honor's permission to reject all bids for 
items to be supplied by the above vendors and 
award contracts, without further advertising, to 
these vendors. The contract amounts are approxi- 
mate figures based on estimated volumes. The 
contract period is from October 1, 1985, through 
September 30, 1986. 

Due to a change in policy, all letters of award for 
defective bids must be approved by the hospital's 
legal counsel. The hospital's attorney requested 
that changes in wording be made, thus this letter of 
award is being submitted late. 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 
Enteral Feeding System 

Dear Sir: 

Pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the 
Board of Health and Hospitals, I respectfully re- 
quest your Honor's permission to award a contract, 
without advertising, to PRC Medical Specialties, 
Inc., Randolph, for the period December 1, 1985, 
through June 30, 1987, at a cost not to exceed 
$83,000. 

Under this contract, PRC Medical Specialties, 
Inc., will furnish an enteral feeding system to the 
Department of Health and Hospitals. 



As the result of a public bid, proposal 431 , a con- 
tract was awarded to medical Electronics Group, a 
distributor for Cheesebrough-Pond's Inc., and the 
lowest acceptable bidder, to provide an enteral 
feeding system to the Department of Health and 
Hospitals for the period July 1 , 1985, through June 
30, 1987. The letter of awards was approved on 
July 10, 1985, and the contract was executed on 
July 31, 1985. 

The contract with Medical Electronics Group only 
covered the patients at Mattapan Hospital, but as 
the result of a lengthy evaluation, patients at Bos- 
ton City Hospital will now be put on the same sys- 
tem. 

On November 21 , 1 985, the department was noti- 
fied that Medical Electronics Group would no 
longer be the distributor for Cheesbrough-Pond's, 
Inc. and that PRC Medical Specialties, Inc. would 
now provide this service and would honor all the ex- 
isting prices, terms and conditions of the original 
contract. 

Therefore, in view of the above and because the 
cost, in my opinion, is reasonable no benefit would 
inure to the city by readvertising. 

The above contract amount is an approximate 
figure based on estimated volumes. The contract 
period is for nineteen months beginning December 
1 , 1 985, and ending June 30, 1 987. 

This letter of award is being submitted late be- 
cause the department had only six working days 
between notification of the change in vendors and 
the start of the new contract. 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

INSPECTIONAL SERVICES DEPARTMENT 
Legal Cases Preparation, etc. 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to Dis- 
pense with public advertising and to award a con- 
tract to Ms. Betsy Shumaker, Brookline. 

Under the terms of the contract, Ms. Shumaker 
will assist the principal legal assistant in the re- 
search and preparation of cases being prosecuted

Review of Building Plans 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to dis- 
pense with public advertising and to award a con 
tract to Mr. Paul Donga, 69 Roseclair Street 
Dorchester. 

Under the terms of the contract, Paul Donga wil 
review and assist in the examination of buildinc 
construction plans that require electrical installa 
tion, approvals, and meets with architects, engi- 
neers and contractors. Paul Donga is uniquely 
qualified having a degree in electrical engineering 
and now studying for his master degree. 

Mr. Donga will be serving the city as a student in 
tern, being a graduate student in electrical engi 
neering at Boston University. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex 
ceed $5,000. Mr. Donga will be employed five days 
per week and his work hours will not exceed twenty 
hours per week. He will be compensated at $9.2f 
per hour. 

The term of the contract shall be December 15 
1985, to June 30, 1986. 

Because of the professional nature of this servict 
and the unique Student Intern Program I believi 
that public advertising would serve no useful pur 
pose. 

Very truly yours, 

William Sommers, 
Commissioner. 

Applications Screening, etc. 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectively request your permission to di£ 
pense with the public advertising and to award 
contract to Henry R. Malbranche, 694 Massachi 
setts Avenue. 

This is a personal service contract in which M 
Malbranche will assist in the process of receivinc 
correcting and screening permit applications. 

Mr. Malbranche has been chosen for this coij 
tract after careful interviews with a number of appi 
cants for the contract. He was selected because hj 
has previous experience with the operation of thj 
permit process and previous experience working 
the housing and building process within the City j 
Boston In addition, he has specialized training | I 
business administration that make him particularjl 
well-qualified for this contract, due to Mr. Malbra II 
Che's expertise in this area and the need of this d | 
partment for these reviews to be performed as soc ) 
as possible. Public advertising at this point woul 
serve no useful purpose. 

Compensation under this contract shall not e h 
ceed $1 1 ,000, which I have determined to be re M 
sonable for the work performed. Mr. Malbrancl 
will be working full time at a salary of $325 per we 



46 



of $6.25 per hour and the terms of the contract will 
be from November 15, 1985, through June 30, 
1986. 

Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices rendered and his previous experience and 
skills, I believe that public advertising would serve 
no useful purpose. 

Very truly yours, 

William Sommers, 
Commissioner. 

Building Plans Review 

Dear Mr Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to dis- 
pense with public advertising and to award a con- 
tract to Schoenfeld Associates, engineers, 
architects, landscape architect, planners, 12 
Farnsworth Street, for engineering and architec- 
tural services for the Inspectional Services Depart- 
ment. 

Under the terms of the contract, the Schoenfeld 
Associates will furnish a structural engineer and an 
architect for a six-month period to examine and re- 
view all plans filed with Inspectional Services that 
require architectural or structural review for compli- 
ance with the State Building Code. 

Schoenfeld Associates are most familiar with the 
operation of building plan review in the city and the 
application of the State Building Code. The two 
candidates proposed positions by Schoenfeld As- 
sociates for these two, six-month contracts were in- 
terviewed by officers of the department and found 
to have both extensive experience in construction 
supervision, and plan review The services to be 
oerformed are specialized and unique in that no 
other contract review for plans is in existence in the 
city. In addition, these services are professional 
and will be carried out by two individuals with spe- 
cific assignments, not by an interchange within a 
contract. Moreover, specifications for such a con- 
tract are not feasible in that the effective delivery of 
the services requested will depend on the back- 
ground, experience and qualifications of the indi- 
viduals assigned by the contractor. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $75,000, which I have determined to be a rea- 
sonable fee for the work being performed. The two 
employees will work for a six-month period January 
1, 1986, to June 30, 1986. 

Because of the professional nature of the work 
nvolved and the experience of the individuals, I be- 
ieve that public advertising will serve no useful pur- 
Dose

Commissioner.

ley and Miller will provide legal representation to 
Joseph F. O'Keefe, M.D. in the case of Kelley vs. 
O'Keefe, etal, Suffolk Superior Court, Civil Action

1er to address a conflict which has arisen in the si- 
nultaneous representation of Dr. O'Keefe and a

vation Law Foundation of New England, Inc., et at. 
vs. City of Boston, etal., Civil Action No. 85-3961- 
MA Since this case involves complicated environ- 
mental issues in federal and state law, it is in the 
city's best interests to have outside counsel repre-

igating the issues involved in the above case. Mr 
Child's hourly rate if $95 per hour and Mr Lewis' is

to be reasonable for the work to be performed. 

The term of this contract will be November 18,

being submitted late because it was necessary to 
retain counsel to meet court deadlines

MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS 
Computer Maintenance Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Permission is respectfully requested to dispense 
with public advertising and award a contract to Digi- 
tal Equipment Corporation, Waltham, to provide 
professional computer maintenance for computer 
systems located in both the Assessing and the Trea- 
sury Departments for the period of July 1 , 1985, to 
June 30, 1986. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will provide unscheduled, on-call remedial mainte- 
nance as required for the City of Boston's two DEC 
VAX systems. This contract also includes: commit- 
ted four-hour response time; emergency overnight 
coverage on the Assessing Department's system; 
emergency weekend coverage on the Assessing 
Department systems; services on five ABLE com- 
puters located in the Assessing Department; serv- 
ice on two additional CPUs of memory recently 
purchased by the Assessing Department; five-year 
agreement with price protection clause. Under this 
clause the contractor will not pass on any price in- 
crease for years one, two, and three. For years four 
and five the contractor would limit the yearly in- 
creases to a maximum of 5 percent. 

This contract is based on a previously advertised 
contract (award letter dated June 29, 1 984) in which 
Digital was awarded the contract. It is my opinion 
that due to the professional nature of these services 
that it would serve no useful purpose to the city to 
publicly advertise. Compensation under this con- 
tract shall not exceed $124,120 and shall be 
charged to appropriation code 1 -01-49-490. It is my 
opinion that this cost is reasonable. 

This letter is being submitted late due to a delay 
in negotiations with the Digital Equipment Corpora- 
tion. This delay, in turn was due to a change in con- 
tract personnel for the contractor. 

Sincerely, 

Allan K. Stern, 
Director. 

Air Conditioning Maintenance 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Permission is respectfully requested to dispense 
with public advertising and award a contract to 
Comm Air, a company located at 377 West First 
Street, South Boston. This contract will provide 
maintenance services for the air conditioning units 
in both the Data Processing and the Treasury De- 
partments. Under the terms of this contract, the 
contractor will provide all scheduled maintenance 
labor and maintenance material. 

Comm Air is uniquely qualified to perform this 
work because this company is professionally rec- 
ognized within this industry, has performed quality 
work for the city in previous years and due to the 
fact that the manufacturer of this equipment has 



recommended them as the best maintenance firm 
for this equipment. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $4,500 and shall be charged to appropriation 
code 1 -01-49-490. 1 have determined this cost to be 
reasonable and believe that publicly advertising 
would serve no useful purpose. 

The term of this contract shall be from September 
1, 1985, through June 30, 1986. 

This contract is being submitted late due to a de- 
lay in negotiations with the vendor. 

Sincerely, 

Allan K. Stern, 
Director.

MAYOR'S "BOSTON FOR BOSTON" PROGRAM 



Statement of Mayor Raymond L. Flynn on the Establishment of the 
"Boston for Boston" Program, February 10, 1987. 
While Boston is in the midst of an unprecedented economic surge, and you 
inly have to walk outside to stand in the middle of one of the country's most vibrant 
inancial centers. There's been a negative side, too. 
This downside has been with us a for the jobless youth, the long-term un- 



ong time — too long. In the midst of all 
his growth, many Boston neighbors — 
nany families and individuals — have 
>een left behind. When you examine 
ob trends over the past three decades, 
i troubling picture emerges. Boston 
esidents' share of jobs has fallen 
iteadily. At last count, Boston residents 
leld under 30 percent of jobs in Boston, 
is compared to over 50 percent in 1 950. 
"hose percentages are derived from 
tbout 282,000 of the 558,000 jobs of 
950, to about 181 ,000 of the 594,000 
obs of 1985. That's a lot of jobs for 
leighborhood residents to lose in such 
i short time in a surging Boston econ- 
imy. 

However, we have a lot of evidence in 
lis city that creative leadership by gov- 
rnment will, in turn, create change. For 
istance, Governor Dukakis' nationally 
icclaimed Employment and Training 
'rogram, "E.T.," is an excellent exam- 
>le of the results you can achieve when 
ou connect AFDC recipients with the 
pportunity to be productive. 

The "Boston for Boston" Program is 
onstructed in the tradition of E.T. 

What compels us to establish these 
titiatives is the fact that a lot of Boston 
•eople, especially the younger ones, al- 
/ays think we must be talking about 
omeone else when we talk about "Ec- 
nomic Growth." Well, "Boston for Bos- 
jn" is another in a series of initiatives 
p change that way of thinking. It 
prings from the same strategy that pro- 
uced other significant partnerships 
nd that saw us increase the Public Ed- 
cation Budget by more than $56 mil- 
on over the past three years, even 
'hile we were getting the city out of an 
lherited operating deficit of over $40 
lillion. 

"Boston for Boston" will be a partner- 
hip for productivity, providing direction 



employed adult, and for every Boston 
resident who is willing to be trained for a 
start on the future: a permanent, private 
sector job. 

It is not some government "Gimmee" 
program. 

It is a "Go-for-lt" approach, showing 
people where the opportunity is and 
how to get it. It is especially important in 
an era when the federal commitment to 
job training has dropped dramatically, 
from $7.9 billion in 1980, to $3.4 billion 
in the current federal budget. 

Here is how our approach works: 

The developers of twenty Downtown 
projects have signed an agreement 
with my office, to encourage their com- 
mercial tenants to give Boston resi- 
dents first crack at 50 percent of the 
30,000 new jobs that these projects ex- 
pect to generate. 

The city will act as a Personnel Place- 
ment Service for these firms, training 
and referring Boston people to them. 
Everybody comes out ahead. 

• Companies get skilled employees 

• Neighbors get jobs and 

• Job by job, Boston becomes a 
stronger community, economically and 
socially. 

These are growth jobs, in areas such 
as financial management, information 
systems, and the law. They don't start 
at the top — but I didn't either. How 
many of you did? We worked our way 
up. "Boston for Boston" will help put 
people on the ladder to a brighter eco- 
nomic future. 

Disadvantaged youths in this city 
have been discouraged for so long, with 
people telling them of the heights they 
can't reach, of the opportunities they 
will never get. It's no wonder that cyni- 
cism, suspicion, and despair set in. 

But the program can work. We can 
reach these kids with the message that 



there is a lot going on in this city for the 
person who has the will to participate. 

Beyond all the talk there is the simple 
fact that this program can create a good 
shot at a decent job. Our message to- 
day is: Take advantage of it.

CONTRACTS AWARDED 
WITHOUT ADVERTISING 

The Mayor has approved th 
awarding of contracts without ac 
vertising, based on the followin 
communications: 

MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS 

Accounting System 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission 
dispense with public advertising and to award 
contract to American Management Systems. Inc 
corporation located at Virginia, for the purchase 
an integrated financial management and accoui 
ing system known as LGFS Plus. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contract 
will provide us with their proprietary integrated sc 
ware package, including installation, user trainir 
data processing training, systems documentati 
and flow charts, user manuals and over 5,000 hoi 
of city-wide implementation assistance. 

In the selection process a search commits I 
composed of the City Auditor, the Budget Direct I 
the City Treasurer, and myself was formed to I 
search and evaluate integrated financial manai II 
ment packages. 

The committee established rigorous standaill 
for all vendors in order to determine the most u I 
ble product. While there are many financial m. II 
agement packages in the marketplace, very f II 
can handle encumbrance accounting, governm II 
related practices, a high volume of transactiojl 
state-of-the-art system software architecture, r II 
dularity towards complete expandability, stall 
alone integrated accounting subsystem. 

After preliminary discussions the committee 11 
cided upon the vendors that were capable of m<|| 
ing the above criteria: 

Systems and Computer Technology Corporal I 
of Pennsylvania; Peat, Marwick and Mitchell! 
Boston; AMS of Virginia. 

Following a long series of demonstrations ; H 
meetings, for a period of six months, with these v i 
dors, AMS was chosen for the following reason ■ i 

AMS is the developer, owner and sole sourc J 
the LGFS Plus software packages; AMS has : 
cessfully installed their software in over 100 < II 
ernmental entities including several ci j 
comparable to the City of Boston; AMS is one of 1 1 
acknowledged leaders in the field of governme 



54 



ntegrated financial systems and has an off the 
helf package that meets the requirements im- 
)Osed by the Commonwealth; the LGFS package is 
pecifically designed to be used in the same data 
irocessing environment presently installed in the 
ity. 

; Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
eed $550,000, which I have determined to be rea- 
tonable for the work to be performed and shall be 
i harged to appropriation code 1-01-49-290. The 
prm of this contract shall be from October, 1 985, to 
lune 30, 1986. 
The specialized requirements of the city directed 
ie selection process since there are few major 
endors that can deliver a guaranteed and tested 
roduct to a city our size. Because of the highly 
j nique features of the AMS systems, the reason- 
ble cost, and the comparability with our system 
ley are the vendor of choice. I believe that broader 
ublic advertising would serve no useful purpose. 
Very truly yours, 

Allan K. Stern, 
Director. 

MAYOR'S OFFICE 
Improving of Ethnic Relations 

'ear Mr. Mayor: 

On July 29, 1985, your Honor approved an award 
! f a contract, without public advertising for bids, to 
le Civic Foundation for Boston, Inc., c/o Kenneth 
ossano, for the period of July 1st 1985, to June 
0th 1986, at a cost not to exceed $70,000 for the 
urpose of carrying out programs in five areas 
leighborhood development, corporate access, 
letropolitan forum, public awareness, and desig- 
ated grants) with an overall goal of directly and sig- 
; ificantly impacting and improving relations 
etween different racial, ethnic, economic and cul- 
jral groups in the city of Boston 

Your approval is requested to amend this con- 
act to increase funding for the same programs, 
he cost of this amendment which is effective July 
. 1 985, and which is to run through June 30, 1 986, 
nail not exceed $1 1 8, 1 00, an amount which I have 
etermined to be reasonable. The contract, as 
mended, shall not exceed $1 88, 1 00, the appropri- 
tion approved by the City Council and your Honor 
>r FY 1986. 

In the original award letter it was stated that the 
bove-named five programs would be carried out 
irough the Boston Committee Inc. Subsequent to 
le awarding of this contract, the Boston Commit- 
ie merged with the Corporation for Boston to form 
new entity called the Partnership. It was in antici- 
ation of this merger that the five programs lisetd 
bove were planned, and no change will occur in 
ie programs due to the merger and due to the fact 
lat the programs will now be carried out through 
ie Partnership. 

Under the terms of this contract, it will be at the 
iscretion of the City of Boston to make determina- 
Dn on compliance to this contract by examining 
>e Partnership's programs in the areas listed 
Dove and determining if they have directly and sig- 
ificantly impacted and improved relations be- 
veen different racial, ethnic, economic and 
jltural groups in the City of Boston. 

In awarding this contract, the City of Boston as- 
jmes that the Civic Foundation for Boston, Inc. 
ill receive funds from private sources for the same 
jrpose in an approximately similar amount as in 
ach of the previous two years. For this reason, it 
ould not be efficient or economical to advertise 
-iblicly for this contract. 

Sincerely, 

Neil Sullivan, 
Assistant to the Mayor.

PUBLIC FACILITIES COMMISSION 

Libraries Improvement Designs 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities Com- 
mission on August 22, 1985, I respectfully request 
your Honor's written permission to dispense with 
public advertisement and award a contract to 
Schoenfeld Associates, Inc., a Massachusetts cor- 
poration, located at 12 Farnsworth Street, provid- 
ing professional architectural design services for

fications for heating repairs, upgraded lighting, re-

repairs, replacement of HVAC and handicapped 
toilet doors. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $26,443 (including $3,000 for Supplementary

based on an estimated cost of construction of 
$1 50,000, which I have determined to be a reason- 
able cost for the work to be performed. The term of 
this contract shall be ten weeks from the date of ex- 
ecution. 

Following the advertisement of this project and 
receipt of proposals, the contract was selected on 
the basis of a rating system undertaken by the Pub- 
lic Facilities Designer Selection Committee in ac- 
cordance with M.G.L. c. 7, s. 30B, et seq. I believe 
this contractor is qualified to perform the services 
required due to the rating given this firm by the De- 
signer Selection Committee. 

In view of the technical and professional nature of 
the services, and the selection process used, it is 
my judgment that further public advertising would 
serve no useful purpose. 

Respectfully, 

Lisa G. Chapnick, 
Director. 



Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities Com-

nett Associates, Inc. a Massachusetts corporation,

Leasing Certain Premises 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Under a delegation of its power from the Public 
Facilities Commission to the director of Public Fa- 
cilities, dated December 8, 1971 , I hereby request 
your Honor's written authority to dispense with pub- 
lic advertising and to enter into a lease with 1010 
Massachusetts Avenue Trust, c/o Boston Realty 
Advisors, Inc., 268 Summer Street, for certain 
premises deemed necessary and convenient by 
the director to be used as office space by the In- 
spectional Services Department. 

The demised premises consist of 25,560 square 
feet of net leasable floor space on the fifth floor at 
1010 Massachusetts Avenue in the Roxbury Dis- 
trict of the City of Boston . 

The term of the lease will be sixty-two months be- 
ginning May 1, 1986, and ending June 30, 1991, 
subject to annual appropriation. For your Honor's 
further information, the initial two months tenancy 
(May and June, 1986) will be rent-free. The cost for 
the period July 1 , 1 986, through June 30, 1 987, will 
not exceed $31 9,500, based upon a per square foot 
rent of $12.50 for this initial rental period. The per 
square foot rent will escalate annually thereafter at 
the rate of $.25 per year to a maximum of $1 3.50 per 
square foot in the fifth and final year of the lease. It is 
my opinion that this cost if reasonable. The rent in- 
cludes eighty-five assigned parking spaces, main- 
tenance, cleaning and security services, as well as 
certain leasehold improvements that have been 
agreed to by the lessor and the city to be completed 
prior to our taking occupancy of the premises. 

Since these facilities are the most adequate and 
convenient which were located after investigating 
approximately eight other properties, and the pro- 
posed per square foot rent compares most favor- 
ably with other similar buildings especially in light of 



55 



the leasehold improvements to be made at no cost 
to the city, it is my judgment that public advertise- 
ment would serve no useful purpose in this in- 
stance. 

Sincerely, 

Lisa G- Chapnick, 
Director. 

SCHOOL DEPARTMENT 

Instructional Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

As superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, 
I request your authorization for the award of a con- 
tract to Creative Educational Associates, 25 Hun- 
tington Avenue. The contract shall be in effect 
during the period of October 28, 1985, to June 30, 
1986, and shall occur at a cost not to exceed 
$82,928, which I have deemed to be reasonable. 
On June 25,1 985, the School Committee approved 
all of the FY'86 chapter 636 proposals for the sum 
of $5,023,273. Creative Educational Associates' 
portion as is related to that amount is $82,928. 

The contractor will provide the instructional serv- 
ices as follows: 

Description of Services — Schedule 1 .

Services to Accreditation Committee 
)ear Mr. Mayor: 
As superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, 
request your authorization for the award of a con- 
act to Children's Inn, a corporation located at 342 
ongwood Avenue. 

The contract was in effect during the period Octo- 
er20. 1985, to October 22, 1985, and occurred at 

cost not to exceed $3,786.67, which I have 
eemed to be reasonable 

This letter replaces a previous letter originally 
ubmitted to the Corporation Counsel on October 
8. 1985. in the amount of $7,000 That request was 
aturned to this department with the recommenda- 
on that a more detailed account of the expenses to 
e incurred be attached. After contacting Chil- 
ren's Inn, the Business Office found that the ex- 
enses of the accreditation team were substantially 
iwer than had previously been projected, hence, 
ie difference in amounts of the two submissions. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
r ovided accommodations, meals, parking, and re- 
eshments for the Accreditation Committee of the 
ew England Association of Schools and Colleges, 
he accreditation was performed at Boston Latin 
chool 

The contractor was selected to provide the above 
arvices because Children's Inn is in close proxim- 
/ to Boston Latin School. In addition, the Planning 
ommittee at Latin School solicited bids from 
;ven area hotels and found the price quoted by 
hildren's Inn to be the most reasonable. 
Because of the professional nature of the service 
ovided under this agreement, and the expertise 
the contractor in providing such services, it is my 
atermination that the public interest would not 
ave been served by publicly advertising for bids. 
Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson, 
Superintendent. 

Lease or Purchase of Copiers, etc. 
ear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
spense with public advertising and to award a 
jntract to Xerox Corporation, located at 155 Fed- 
'al Street, for outright purchase, installment pur- 
lase, term lease or rental of new Xerox copiers, 
jplicators and memorywriters for the period No- 
amber 15, 1985, through June 30, 1986, as 
aeded by the School Department in an amount not 
> exceed $75,000. In most cases, new copiers or 
jplicators will represent replacement of old Xerox 
jpiers returned to the manufacturer for trade-in 
edit. Equipment acquired with federal monies will 
a placed on term lease or rental plans. The initial 
nount to be encumbered is $25,000. 
Xerox Corporation was awarded publicly adver- 
>ed contracts by the Commonwealth of Massa- 
lusetts in October, 1 985, for one calendar year for 
e purchase of copiers, duplicators and memory- 
riters. The purchasing agent of the City of Boston 
as conducted an extensive study of its repro- 
aphic equipment and requirements, and deter- 
ined that the city needs to standardize its 
jrchase of copiers and duplicators. 
Prices charged to the School Committee will be 
e same as those charged to the Commonwealth 
Massachusetts and the City of Boston and I con- 
fer these prices reasonable. In view of the above, 
is my opinion that no useful purpose would be 



served by further public advertisement for bids. 
Very truly yours, 

Leo J. Burke, 
Business Manager. 
Consortium Membership 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

As superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, 
I respectfully request your authorization for the 
award of a contract to Education Collaborative for 
Greater Boston a corporation located at 20 Kent 
Street, Brookline. 

This contract shall be in effect during the period 
from December 16, 1985, to June 30, 1986, and 
shall occur at a cost not to exceed $19,000, which I 
have deemed to be reasonable. 

Under the terms of this contract, the contractor 
will provide the following services: 

Through the Education Collaborative, the Boston 
Public Schools will become a member of the Minne- 
sota Educational Computer Consortium. As a 
member of this consortium the School Department 
will have legal access to over 300 computer soft- 
ware programs. By enrolling in MECC through Edu- 
cation Collaborative, the School Department will 
have the license for unlimited copying and distribu- 
tion of their documentation and software. 

Through the EDCO School Services Program, 
the contractor will provide curriculum consultation, 
staff training, and technical assistance to the Arch- 
diocese of Boston School Bureau. 

The Education Collaborative sponsors all individ- 
uals from Massachusetts participating in the Insti- 
tute for Educational Leadership, a Washington, 
D C. -based organization which created and spon- 
sors a national leadership development program. 
This contract contains encumbered funds for one 
such individual and an encumbered amount for 
four additional participants. 

Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be provided under this agreement and the 
expertise of the contractor in providing these serv- 
ices, it is my determination that the public interest 
would not be served by publicly advertising for bids. 
Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson, 
Superintendent. 
Athletic Program 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

As superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, 
I request your authorization for the award of a con- 
tract to Boston Educational Development Founda- 
tion, a nonprofit corporation, located at 26 Court 
Street. 

The contract shall be in effect during the period 
December 9, 1 985, to June 30, 1 986, and shall oc- 
cur at a cost not to exceed $57,000, which I have 
determined to be reasonable. 

Under the terms of this contract, the contractor 
will administer and document expenditures which 
will be made according to proposals submitted by 
Boston middle schools and approved by the advi- 
sory board for the John Hancock Company HEART 
Fund. The purpose of this program is to provide an 
interscholastic athletic program for the middle 
schools. The amount of this contract represents the 
School Department's obligation to match the 
amount granted by the John Hancock Company for 
this program. 

Because of the professional nature of the service 
to be provided under this agreement, and the ex- 
pertise of the contractor in providing such services, 
it is my determination that the public interest would 
not be served by public advertisement for bids. 
Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson.

TREASURY DEPARTMENT 
Collection Assistance 

57 



Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to dis- 
pense with public advertising and to award a con- 
tract to Maureen Flaherty, an individual, located at 
1 00 Train Street, Dorchester, for assistance in the 
collection of delinquent real estate, personal prop- 
erty and motor vehicle excise taxes. 

Under the terms of this contract, Ms. Flaherty will 
assist in the collection activities for the unit. Ms. Fla- 
herty is uniquely qualified to do this work through 
her past experience and her past excellent per- 
formance. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $5,700, which I have determined to be reason- 
able for the work to be performed. Ms. Flaherty will 
be working part time at the rate of $9 per hour. 

The term of this contract shall be December 10, 
1 985, through June 30, 1 986. 

Because fo the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be performed, I believe that public advertis- 
ing would serve no useful purpose. 

This award letter is being submitted late due to 
this department's need to reevaluate its current 
workload and the subsequent need for staffing. 
Respectfully yours, 

George A. Russell, Jr., 
Collector- Treasurer.

MAYOR OF BOSTON PRESIDENT, CITY COUNCIL 

VOL. 79 MONDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1987 NO. 8 



MAYOR ANNOUNCES IMPROVED CITY BOND RATING 



At a press conference, Mayor Raymond L. Flynn, joined by members of the 
3ity Council and representatives of the investment community, announced that 
Standard and Poor's, the New York-based investment rating firm, has raised the 
3ity of Boston's bond rating from "Triple B Plus" to "A Minus." This marks the 
lighest bond rating for the city since 1980 and will result in significant interest 
savings for the city and its taxpayers, both in short- and long-term borrowing. 
Mayor Flynn termed Standard and 



3 oor's decision "a direct reflection on 
he progress that this city has been 
naking to get its financial house in or- 
der, through the ending of an inherited 
deficit and with the imposition of strong 
nanagement controls. The increase in 
3oston's bond rating to the grade of A 
ninus is a direct benefit to the people of 
Boston and their neighborhoods." 

Standard and Poor's, in announcing 
he improved bond rating, stated that, 
'the upgrade reflects continued finan- 
:ial progress, an expanding economic 
>ase, a manageable debt level, and a 
;trong management team. Boston's 
iconomic base continues to grow with 
ncome and employment gains exceed- 
ng the national average." 

Mayor Flynn defined the benefits for 
toston residents of the upgraded bond 
ating in two parts. "First," he said, "it 
neans that we can continue our joint ef- 
orts to improve the quality of life in 
svery neighborhood through capital im- 
irovements in areas such as schools, 
braries, parks, roads, and public 
afety." 

"Secondly, it means that we can do 
lis more cost-effectively, making sig- 
ificant savings on the interest we oth- 
erwise would have to pay on our bonds, 
"his is good news for taxpayers." 

The Mayor then expressed his grati- 
jde toward those whose cooperation 
elped make this progress possible, in- 
luding the City Council, Sam Tyler of 
ie Municipal Research Bureau, and 
ie Administration's financial team; 
lay Dooley, George Russell, Bob

ABCD HEAD START 
RECRUITS BOSTON 
PRESCHOOLERS 

Parents can give preschoolers a 
"head start" in life by enrolling them in 
Action for Boston Community Develop- 
ment's (ABCD) Head Start program. Ac- 
cording to an HHS (Health and Human 
Services) study, early educational pro- 
grams significantly affect a child's 
achievement in school. Low-income 
children enrolled in preschool pro- 
grams score higher on achievement 
tests and are less likely to be held back 
a grade or require special education 
classes. 

Head Start, a federally funded child 
development program offered free of 
charge, provides children between the 
ages of two years and nine months and 
four years of age, and their parents, 
with opportunities for educational and 
social development. ABCD operates 
thirty-seven Head Start centers 
throughout Boston's neighborhoods 
where children of diverse ethnic and 
cultural backgrounds discover the ex- 
citement of learning and friendship 
through supervised play. Head Start 
classes are staffed by trained teachers 
and their assistants. Special needs chil- 
dren are mainstreamed into the pro- 
gram and receive special attention. 
Children also profit from the nutritious 
lunches and comprehensive medical 
and dental screening provided. 

But Head Start is not just for children. 
The staff assists parents in finding jobs 
while encouraging them to enroll in 
training or educational programs. Other 
services provided by the Head Start 



staff include helping parents improve 
parenting skills, acting as the family's 
advocate, and providing assistance in 
crisis situations. Parents are also en- 
couraged to take an active role in the 
Head Start program by volunteering 
and serving on their local Head Start 
parent committees or Head Start City- 
wide Parent Council. 

ABCD Executive Director Robert M. 
Coard says, "Head Start has always 
been a large, important, and highly suc- 
cessful ABCD program. In a system like 
ABCD, with programs spanning the life 
cycle, we see first-hand what sociologi- 
cal studies have documented: Head 
Start, with its positive influence during 
the all-important preschool years, has a 
lasting influence on the lives of low-in- 
come children and their families." 

ABCD has administered Head Start 
in Boston since its inception in 1 965. To- 
day the program serves over 2,000 chil- 
dren and their families. Audrey Melick, 
director of ABCD's Head Start program 
says, "Boston's Head Start is a wonder- 
ful program! Due to current economic 
pressures, low-income residents of 
Boston need Head Start services now 
more than ever before. Children love 
the program; they enjoy themselves 
while developing educational and so- 
cial skills instrumental for their future. 
Head Start graduates assume positions 
of leadership in school and have more 
realistic aspirations related to their ca- 
reer plans." 

ABCD's Head Start program, funded 
at approximately $7 million, serves Bos- 
ton children and their families in thirty- 
seven centers throughout the city 
offering a wide range of education, nu- 
trition, health and social services. For 
more information, call ABCD Head 
Start at 357-6000, ext. 388. 

ABCD is Boston's antipoverty agency 
and the largest human services agency

in New England, with funding from a va-

annually. The agency is a private, non- 
profit corporation established in 1962, 
with the majority of board members 
elected from Boston's neighborhoods 
through the decentralized ABCD neigh- 
borhood network. ABCD programs in- 
clude Fuel Assistance, Foster

MAYOR URGES 
NEIGHBORHOOD PARTICIPATION 

Boston Mayor Raymond L. Flynn was 
joined by South End housing advo- 
cates, neighborhood leaders, and con- 
cerned residents to announce that after 
ten months of give-and-take community 
meetings a compromise emerged that 
addresses the deep concerns held by 
South End residents, particularly re- 
garding the need for affordable hous- 
ing. The compromise plan also calls for 
preserving open space, maintaining the 
residential character of the neighbor- 
hood, and prompting neighborhood 
stability. 

After careful review of both the neigh- 
borhood's comments and the BRA's 
thorough financial analysis, the com- 
promise position called for one-third of 
the units to be made affordable to fami- 
lies with incomes at or below 50 percent 
of the SMSA median income; one-third 
at or below 80 percent of the SMSA me- 
dian; and one-third at market levels. 
The plan not only has the overwhelming 
support of the neighborhood, it is also in 
keeping the Flynn administration's goal 
of maximizing affordability whenever 
the city sells vacant land or buildings for 
housing development. 

Freida Garcia, Executive Director of 
United South End Settlements and a 
South End resident, said, "Mayor Flynn 
has made it clear that the city adminis- 
tration not only believes strongly in 
neighborhood participation and ac- 
cess, but also in using city leverage, 
such as the use of vacant city land and 



buildings, to expand the supply of affor- 
dable housing for low- and moderate-in- 
come people in Boston's neighbor- 
hoods." 

Pat Cusick, Executive Director of the 
South End Neighborhood Action Pro- 
gram (SNAP) and longtime South End 
resident, said, "I want to commend the 
South End community for its unique, all- 
inclusive ten-month process that 
yielded the neighborhood's recommen- 
dations — and a special commendation 
to Mayor Flynn for his leadership on two 
critical points: the issues of affordability 
and being totally responsive to the com- 
munity's recommendations. This is an 
important and significant decision by 
the Mayor and it's clear to folks like me 
who may not have been political sup- 
porters in the past that we can and will 
work together for important change and 
progress in Boston." 

Jeanette Boone, President of the 
Four Corner's Neighborhood Associa- 
tion, praised the Mayor's decision as "a 
major breakthrough in giving longtime 
South End residents an opportunity to 
have a meaningful role in establishing 
community consensus around valuable 
city-owned property. 

Ms. Boone went on to say, "This im- 
portant partnership is critical to the 
long-term interests of the South End. 

Mayor Flynn stated, "I want to thank 
the people in my administration for 
working so hard to come up with a pro- 
posal that not only meets the goal of af-

The Children's Museum, in collabo- 
ation with the Dance Umbrella, pre- 
;ented special performances during 
"ebruary vacation week by Women of 
he Calabash, on Saturday, February

•f the Museum's Black History Celebra- 
lon. 

The four-woman company revive a 
ich, rhythmic heritage stemming from 
ne heart of African music. Combining

/ith contemporary influences, the 
Vomen of the Calabash performed mu- 
ic from Africa, Latin America, the Car- 
ibean and Black America. 

At the Museum, older kids not only 
iewed a performance which was hailed 
y Jon Pareles as "a crossfire of 
rythm, melody and motion that is . . . 
resistable," but they also learned 
lore about the calabash and other per- 
ussive instruments as well as discov- 
ring how contemporary music is often 
x>ted in ancient traditions. Women of 
ie Calabash also performed at the 
trand on February 20 and 21 .

were free with Museum admission. The 
Children's Museum is on Boston's wa- 
terfront at Museum Wharf, 300 Con-

MAYOR FLYNN UNVEILS STATE-OF-THE-ART FIRE-FIGHTING EQUIPMENT 



Mayor Raymond L. Flynn joined Fire Commissioner Leo Stapleton in unveiling 
c-rand new fire-fighting equipment purchased for seven of the city's neighbor- 
loods. Mayor Flynn said this is the largest addition to the city's ongoing effort to 
jpgrade the city's fire-fighting arsenal. 



Purchased under the City of Boston's 
Capital Plan, the new 1 250 GPM pump- 
ers and a new rescue unit were unveiled 
it a cost of $839,923. 

Since Mayor Flynn launched the 
city's Capital Investment Program to im- 
prove public safety in 1984, Boston's 
-ire Department has been able to re- 
c-lace more than 60 percent of its front- 
ine fire fighting equipment. This 
ncludes the seven new trucks which 
vill serve Roxbury, Beacon Hill, East 
3oston, North End, Dorchester, Roslin- 
Jale, and Mattapan. 

Mayor Flynn said: "The best fire de- 
partment in the country deserves the 
jest equipment. This state-of-the-art 
apparatus is part of our ongoing effort to 
c-rovide the best public safety possible 

neighborhood residents. The new 
jquipment is more efficient and will re- 
Juce response time to fires." 

Fire Commissioner Leo Stapleton 
loted that since 1984, the city has pur- 
chased a total of thirty-two new pump- 
jrs, two, heavy-duty units, a rescue 
/ehicle, nine ladder units, one aerial 
jnit and 1 0,000 feet of new hose. Com- 
nissioner Stapleton said, "The new 
equipment will enable us to better pro- 
ect the public." 

Commissioner Stapleton also noted 
hat Boston is the first major city in the 
country to receive these newly acquired 
state-of-the-art pumping units. "This 
capital investment has not only im- 
proved public safety, but has also 
c-oosted fire fighters' morale," said Sta- 
c-leton. The Fire Commissioner pointed 
c-ut that before the city began its pro- 
gram of upgrading public safety, only 20 
percent of the Boston Fire Depart- 
ment's equipment was rated in good 
condition. 

The city has committed more than 
|£10 million for Fire Department equip- 
ment replacement and building renova- 
tions. Some $6.3 million has been spent 

1 or upgrading equipment and $4 million 



is being used for restoring all of the fire 
stations in the city's neighborhoods. 

Upgrading the Boston Fire Depart- 
ment equipment has reduced fire 
fighters' response time significantly. 
Computers help cut the time to respond 
to an emergency from an average one 
and a half minutes to between eight and 
ten seconds. 

According to Commissioner Staple- 
ton, the 1250 GPM pumpers unveiled 
can arrive at the scene of the fire much 
faster. With the improved design, fire 
vehicles have greater maneuverability 
for Boston's narrow streets. 

The new pumpers' "CYCLONE" de- 
sign allows each vehicle a carrying ca- 
pacity of 250 gallons. Commissioner 
Stapleton said several technical fea- 
tures allow more efficient use of both 
equipment and manpower so that fire 
fighters can begin hosing down a fire 
several minutes faster. 

Mayor Flynn said, "This administra- 
tion is continuing its accelerated pro- 
gram of modernization for the Fire 
Department. Nearly everyone would 
agree that our chief weapon for fighting 
fires is a professional department which 
uses the most modern and efficient fire- 
fighting equipment possible." 

Some of the fire-fighting equipment 
purchased under the city's Capital Plan 
includes: 

• Hazardous Materials Truck 

• Pumper-Foam Tower Unit 

• Air Bottle Truck 

• Triple Combination Pumper Truck 

• 1250 GPM Pumper Trucks 

• Aerial Ladder Truck 

• Heavy Duty Rescue Vehicles 
Before the city began replacing 

equipment, the Fire Department was 
burdened with the costs of trying to 
maintain and repair a stock of aging 
equipment. That problem was com- 
pounded with the budget-cutting ef- 
fects of Proposition 2-1/2, which 



diminished the number of fire compan- 
ies and fire fighters, forcing greater bur- 
dens on the older equipment. An 
in-house Fire Department study 
showed that costs for spare parts and 
maintenance were reaching levels 
close to the cost of new vehicles. 

Training on these new units began in 
February for use by mid-March.

of automotive supplies to submit applications foi 
the bidding of same. 

On August 22, 1985, your Honor approved the 
award of eight publicly advertised contracts, in the 
amount of $90,000 each, for furnishing automotive 
supplies to the various city departments, for the 
eleven-month period August 1, 1985, to June 30 
1986. 

Paul's Clutch and Machine Co., Inc., 865 Massa 
chusetts Avenue, was not aware of the request tc 
submit application in July 1985, and has now sub 
mined application. Paul's Clutch and Co., Inc., has 
met all requirements and standards established b' 
the purchasing agent to supply automotive sup 
plies to the various city departments. 

We respectfully request an amendment to ou 
award letter addressed to your Honor dated July 3i 
1 985, by adding one additional supplier of automc 
tive supplies, thereby increasing the number fror 
eight to nine. 

Therefore, your Honor's permission is respec 
fully requested to award a contract for the elevei 
month period August 1 , 1 985, to June 30, 1 986, t 
Paul'sCluth and Machine Co., Inc., 865 Massachi 
setts Avenue, in the amount of $90,000, net, a cos: 
consider reasonable. 

Respectfully yours, 

John F. Scalcione, 
Purchasing Agent. 

HEALTH AND HOSPITALS DEPARTMENT 
Medical Consultant 

Dear Sir: 

Pursuant to the authority delegated to me by tt 
Board of Health and Hospitals, I respectfully r 
quest your Honor's permission to amend the co 
tract with Dr. Ted Mayer for provision of consults 
services in pathology and laboratory medicine 
Mattapan Hospital, for the period July 1, 198 
through June 30, 1986, at a cost not to exce> 
$5,200. 

This amendment will increase the contract si 
by $2,000, thereby increasing the city's total liabil 
under this contract, as so amended, to an amoi| 
not to exceed $7,200. 

The original contract stipulated that the consi 
ant services would not exceed eight hours d 
month. After reviewing the services provided, I 
medical director has determined that the servic 
should be increased so as not to exceed twe 
hours per month. 

In view of the above, and as the cost, in my op 
ion, is reasonable, I recommend approval of t 
amendment. 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioned 

Automotive Repairs 

Dear Sir: 

Pursuant to the authority delegated to me by t 
Board of Healthand Hospitals, I respectfully ( 
quest your Honor's permission to amend the folHf 
ing contract for the amount shown: 

Contract C0269-86; vendor, Pier Garage, ill 
d/b/a Pier Transmission, 221 Northern Averjj 
amended amount, $10,000; new contract amo It 
$18,000. 

The original amount requested for the above ■ I 
tract was estimated, for the period July 1, 1 i 
through June 30, 1986. It is difficult to estimate « 
amount of work that will be needed on ambulan it 
trucks and automobiles. This amendment is ne >* 
sary to cover the costs of repairs that were e x 
underestimated or not anticipated. 



74 



In view of the above, and because, in my opinion, 
the contract increase is reasonable, I recommend 
approval of this amendment. 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

Testing Services 

Dear Sir: 

Pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the 
Board of Health and Hospitals, I hereby request 
your Honor's permission to amend the letter of 
award for a contract with Brigham and Women's 
Hospital, 10 Vining Street, for the period July 1, 
1984, through June 30, 1985, at a cost not to ex- 
ceed $6,500 

Under this contract, the vendor will provide LS 
Ratio and DSPC testing for Boston City Hospital pa- 
tients Brigham and Women's Hospital is the only 
vendor in the area that performs this test on a stat 
basis 

An amended letter of award signed by the Mayor 
on March 5, 1985, increased the contract amount 
by an additional $6,500, thereby increasing the 
city's total liability under this contract to an amount 
not to exceed $1 3,000. Brigham and Women's Hos- 
pital has never signed this amendment. 

Because the Ob-Gyn physicians are requesting 
this test more frequently on their high-risk patients, 
the volume of testing required continued to rise and 
now the department needs an additional 
$8,569 97, thereby increasing the city's total liabil- 
ity under this contract, as so amended, to an 
amount not to exceed $21 ,569.97. 

In view of the above, because of the special nat- 
ure of these services, and because the cost is rea- 
sonable, I recommend approval of this 
amendment 

The Contract Office had been waiting for the first 
amendment to be executed before processing the 
second amendment. When the documents were 
not returned by the end of the fiscal year, priority 
was given to fiscal 1 986 contracts. 

It is now more advantageous to amend the letter 
of award and request one set of signed contract 
documents from the vendor rather then two sets. 
For these reasons this letter of award is being sub- 
mitted late 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

Repairs of Wheelchairs, etc. 

Dear Sir: 

Pursuant to the authority, delegated to me by the 
Board of Health and Hospitals, I hereby request 
your Honor's permission to amend the contract with 
First Medical, Inc., 1032 Commonwealth Avenue, 
for repair and/or refurbish litters and wheelchairs at 
Boston City Hospital for the period July 1, 1984, 
through June 30, 1985, at a cost not to exceed 
$6,000. 

This amendment will increase the contract sum 
by $6,455.76, thereby increasing the city's total lia- 
bility under this contract, as so amended, to an 
amount not to exceed $1 2,455.76. 

This amendment is necessary because the de- 
partment underestimated the volume of repairs 
that would be required when the original request 
was made. 

In view of the above, and because the cost, in my 
opinion, is reasonable, I recommend approval of 
this amendment. 

These expenses were incurred in the last quarter 
of the fiscal year and because the Contract Office 



gave priority over amendments to 1986 contracts, 
this letter of award is being submitted late. 
Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

Vocational Training 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

On July 24, 1985, your Honor approved an award 
of a contract, without public advertising, for Dimock 
Community Health Center, a nonprofit organiza- 
tion, located at 55 Dimock Street, Boston, for the 
purpose of operating a vocational training program 
for forty-two Job Training Partnership Act-eligible 
City of Boston participants for positions in the allied 
health field. The participants are being trained in 
the areas of operating room technicians, nursing 
assistants and central supply technicians. In addi- 
tion, the contractor provides counseling and job 
placement services to the participants. 

Your approval is requested to amend this con- 
tract. This amendment will increase the contract 
amount to allow the contractor to operate an addi- 
tional Third Party Biller Training Program to serve 
fifteen additional clients. The clients will be trained 
in the areas of operational procedures and codes 
involved in the processing of Medicare, Blue Cross, 
and other insurance bills. Training will include an 
internship in Boston area hospitals. Negotiations 
and funding levels had not been completed when 
the original award letter was written. This amend- 
ment will increase the contract amount from 
$90,180 by $44,033, to a total cost not to exceed 
$1 34,21 3. The contract will continue to be effective 
for the period July 1 , 1 985, through June 30, 1 986. 
Funds for the operation of this contract will be pro- 
vided to the City of Boston through a federal gov- 
ernment grant under the Job Training Partnership 
Act. This request was delayed due to the time in- 
volved in negotiations and subsequent budget de- 
velopment. 

As this amendment is for a program at a reason- 
able cost, which conforms to federal procurement 
requirements for JTPA programs, no public pur- 
pose would be served by formal advertisement. I, 
therefore, request perimssion to dispense with in- 
viting sealed bids by advertising in the City Record, 
pursuant to authority granted under the City of Bos- 
ton Code, St. 4, s. 5. 

Sincerely, 

Kristen J. McCormack, 
Director.

ment procedures, word and data processing, legal

Your approval is requested to amend this con- 
tract. This amendment will allow the contractor to 
provide training and support services in the areas

inal award letter was written. This amendment will

Your approval is requested to amend this con- 
tract to provide for additional work required given 
the nature of the case which Mr. Smith was retained 
and an additional case which arose for which Mr. 
Smith's talents are uniquely suited: Leo Stapleton 
vs. Wayne Budd, No. 85-199 (Appeals Court). The 
cost of this amendment, which is effective on No- 
vember 1 , 1 985, shall not exceed $1 0,000, which I 
have determined to be reasonable. The contract, 
as amended, shall not exceed $1 5,000. The period 
of performance shall be extended to December 31 , 
1985. 

Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be performed, I believe that public advertis- 
ing would serve no useful purpose. 

This award letter is being submitted late due to 
administrative inadvertence. 

Very truly yours, 

Joseph I. Mulligan, Jr., 
Corporation Counsel. 

TREASURY DEPARTMENT 

Tax Collection Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

On July 29, 1 985, your Honor approved award of 
a contract without public advertising to Thomas 
Sexton, an individual located at 755 Adams Street, 
Dorchester, for assistance in the collection of delin- 
quent real estate, personal property and motor ve- 
hicle excise taxes during the period July 1, 1985, 
through June 30, 11986, at a cost not to exceed 
$10,500. 

Your approval is requested to amend this con- 
tract to provide for an increase in hourly compensa- 
tion which was not provided for in the terms of the 
original contract due to the need for a greater 
amount of work by Mr. Sexton than originally antici- 
pated. Mr. Sexton will continue to work part time at 
the new rate of $6.50 per hour, effective November 
25, 1985. The total amount of this contract as 
amended will not change. 

The period of performance shall remain July 1, 
1985, through June 30, 1986. 

Respectfully yours, 

George A. Russell, Jr., 
Collector- Treasurer.

MAYOR FLYNN'S ACCELERATED HOUSING PRODUCTION PROGRAM 

Boston Mayor Raymond L. Flynn and Inspectional Services Commis- 
oner William Sommers, have announced that individuals and developers 
an receive permits to start housing construction faster, under the "Fast 
ack Housing Permit Program." "This is a major new initiative to encourage 
ie development of affordable housing in Boston," Mayor Flynn said. 

The Accelerated Housing Production Program, announced earlier this 
jar, supports Mayor Flynn's goal to increase the availability of affordable 
Dusing. The program is a cooperative effort of the Department of Inspec- 
Dnal Services, Public Facilities, the Mayor's Office of Neighborhood Services 
id the Boston Redevelopment Authority. 

"This administration remains committed to creating new housing opportu- 
ties. We are continuing to unlock the doors for families locked out of the 
Dusing market," Mayor Flynn said. 



The Fast Track Housing Permit 
'ogram will process permit applica- 
Dns for developers and individuals 
ster. For the exception of zoning 
jpeals, inaccurate application infor- 
ation or high rise developments, 
jrmits could be processed within 
'O weeks of a complete filing. 

! This will be accomplished by a 
pid review of zoning and building 
|ans, quicker turn-around at the 
Dard of appeals, and, where feasi- 
e, an affidavit process to speed 
[srmit review for larger, more compli- 
uted structures. Priority attention 
ill be given to projects approved as 
Affordable Housing" by the Boston 
edevelopment Authority and Public 
icilities Department. 

■ • Technical assistance on housing 
fjrmits will help individuals speed up 
eir applications so planned devel- 
,)ments are in compliance with zon- 
■g regulations. 

!• Inspectional Services will con- 
jct a weekly "Permit Assistance 
assion" to guide housing applicants 
rough technical requirements. 

• Permit Assistance Sessions will 
p brought to city neighborhoods 
id held periodically at hours con- 
sent for working people. 

^ The program will be adminis- 
red at no extra cost and with no 
Jditional manpower. 

• Inspectional Services will also 
itiate a "Fast Track" system to 
ocess permit applications for the 
instruction of new housing or the 



rehabilitation of vacant and aban- 
doned structures. 

The Fast Track Housing Permit 
Program: 

• Encourages construction of 
new housing; 

• Processes permit applications 
within two weeks; 

• Speeds up construction for 
new homes and rehabilitation 
of vacant and abandoned 
structures; 

• Provides technical assistance 
and periodic sessions for 
homeowners and builders who 
cannot attend regular sessions 
during the work day. 

Mayor Flynn's initiative to provide 
affordable housing for Boston fami- 
lies also includes a schedule for full 
occupancy of BRA housing develop- 
ments, an ongoing search for state 
financial support and implementing 
new procedures for disposing of city- 
owned, abandoned housing through 
community development corporations 
and commercial developers. 

Last year, the City of Boston saw 
the greatest number of new housing 
starts in years, with more than 3,700 
units secured. Of the city-assisted 
housing initiatives, over 75 percent of 
that housing was affordable, reach- 
ing to moderate- and low-income 
people throughout the City of Boston. 

Mayor Flynn concluded that: "The 
production and protection of afforda- 
ble housing will continue to remain 
the highest priority of my administra- 
tion." 



Mayor Raymond L. Flynn has been 
appointed to the National League of Cit- 
ies (NLC) "Election '88 Task Force." 
The panel, which is co-chaired by 
Cleveland Mayor George Voinovich and 
Mayor Charles Royer of Seattle, has 
been charged with the responsibility of 
carrying the message of cities and 
towns to presidential candidates, the 
media, and the public throughout the 
upcoming election year. 

Mayor Flynn has also been named to 
the NLC's Energy, Environment and 
Natural Resources Steering Commit- 
tee. In this capacity, Mayor Flynn will as- 
sist in developing NLC policy 
recommendations and reactions to 
Congressional and federal government 
initiatives. 

According to NLC's Executive Direc- 
tor Alan Beals, steering committee 
members are selected on the basis of 
expertise and interest in the subject 
area. As an NLC member, Mayor Flynn 
has worked extensively on behalf of the 
Clean Water Act, which will provide 
funding for the cleanup of Boston Har- 
bor. 

"I am pleased to be appointed to 
these committees. I will work hard to 
pursue the concerns of Boston's neigh- 
borhoods at the federal level. The is- 
sues facing cities like Boston are now 
more crucial than ever, since the federal 
government has abandoned municipal- 
ities across the country," said Mayor 
Flynn.

CONTRACTS AWARDED 
WITHOUT ADVERTISING 

The Mayor has approved the award- 
ig of contracts without advertising, 
ased on the following communica- 
ons: 

ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICES DEPARTMENT 

I Budget Division 
Revenue Monitoring Services, etc. 
ear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to award a 
sntract, without advertising, to Miss Laura M. D'A- 
tto, 105 Cedar Street, Quincy, for the period De- 
jmber 15, 1985, through June 30, 1986, at an 
xirly rate of $7.50, not to exceed $8,500. 
Under the terms of this contract, Miss D'Alotto 
ill provide professional services in revenue moni- 
ring and related statistical analysis to a budget 
am. She has been working in the Budget Office, 
ider a service order, since October 16,1 985, and 
is participated in the research and development 
a ten-year expenditure report as well as the vemo 
icumbrance system. She has rapidly learned how 
handle volumes of data entry into our computer 
stem which will be invaluable to this office in re- 
ading the historical database. She has proved to 
; a valuable asset to this department. 
Miss D'Aletto has a BA from Sienna College, 
'undonville, New York. She served as a student 



intern for the Rensselaer County Probation Depart- 
ment and coordinated and ran the Probation Em- 
ployment Program. 

In my opinion no benefit will inure to the city by 
publicly advertising for these services. 

Very truly yours, 

Stuart Vidockler, 
Budget Director. 
Health Benefit and Insurance Division 
Research Services 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
dispense with public advertising and award a con- 
tract to Catherine C. Cassidy of 13 Harvard Street, 
Charlestown, for professional services to be ren- 
dered to the Health Benefit and Insurance Division 
of the Administrative Services Department. 

Under the terms of the contract, Ms. Cassidy will 
be responsible for research pertaining to health 
policy development for the City of Boston and other 
health-related tasks as designated by the insur- 
ance coordinator. 

Ms. Cassidy holds a master's degree in health 
policy from Brandeis University and previously de- 
veloped health policy for the office of Hon. State 
Senator Gerard D'Amico. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $1 8,500, which I have determined reasonable 
for the work to be performed. The contractor shall 
be paid at the rate of $16.36 per hour, with available 
funds from appropriation code 1-01-48-290. The 
period of this contract shall be from December 2, 
1 985, through June 30, 1 986. 

Due to an unforeseen administrative lag, this let- 
ter of award is being submitted late. 

Because of the professional nature of the work to 
be performed I believe that public advertising 
would serve no useful purpose. 

Sincerely, 

Jeanne Strain, 
Insurance Coordinator. 
Purchasing Division 
Police Cruisers 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Under General Laws, chapter 7, section 22 B, 
two or more political subdivisions may join together 
for the purpose of obtaining and accepting competi- 
tive bids on similar items of materials, supplies 
equipment or services which they intend to pur- 
chase 

Pursuant to this law, the City of Newton, on be- 
half of the Greater Boston Police Council (GBPC), 
publicly advertised for bids to provide automotive 
equipment to the Police Departments of the mem- 
ber cities and towns. The lowest bidder meeting 
specifications was Natick Ford, and contract was 
awarded to Natick Ford for a five-year period, from 
May 1982, to May 1987. The Boston Police Depart- 
ment is a member of the GBPC. 

The Purchasing Division has received a requisi- 
tion to purchase forty marked cruisers at $13,885 
each for a total cost of $555,400. 

The Boston Police Department has stated that 
the purchase of the above-mentioned automotive 
equipment under the GBPC contract will result in a 
substantial savings. The advantage of purchasing 
through the existing GBPC contract is that substan- 
tial sums of money can be saved because the con- 
tract prices were based on large quantities of 
uniform equipment extended over a period of five 
years with an explicit escalation clause based on 
1982 pricing. 

The equipment to be supplied is compatible with 
equipment already in daily use in the Police Depart- 
ment. The equipment will also satisfy the present 



automotive requirements and those that will be in- 
stituted in the future. 

It is my opinion, and that of the Police Depart- 
ment, that the cost of this item is reasonable and 
that the purchase of the equipment from Natick 
Ford under the GBPC contract would be in the best 
interest of the city. 

Accordingly, your permission is requested to 
award a contract, without further advertising, to Na- 
tick Ford, having a principal place of business at 
Natick, in an amount not to exceed $555,400, net. 
Respectfully yours, 

John F. Scalcione, 
Purchasing Agent. 
Hydrants Control System 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

The Purchasing Division has received a requisi- 
tion from the Fire Department to purchase one In- 
telligent Systems Co., Intecolor Model F 8053 
terminal. 

The terminal in question is used to control the 
high pressure hydrant system in the downtown 
area of the city. The control system is specifically 
designed to use this particular terminal; and the 
vendor of the original system, Q.E.I., says there is 
no viable alternative to the terminal. The award 
price will include ninety days repair and replace- 
ment of any defective material. 

The proposed vendor, Northern Computer, Can- 
ton, has the terminal in stock. 

There is no backup to the present terminal, the 
terminal now in place is the backup unit for the origi- 
nal terminal. The original terminal failed, and it is 
not possible to repair and return the unit to service. 

Therefore, permission is respectfully requested 
to award a contract without public advertising to In- 
tecolor Corporation, Intecolor Drive, Georgia, in an 
amount not to exceed $4,250, net, a cost I consider 
reasonable. 

Respectfully yours, 

John F. Scalcione, 
Purchasing Agent. 

Fire Apparatus 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Your Honor's permission is requested by the Bos- 
ton Fire Department to award a contract, without 
public advertising, for fire apparatus manufactured 
by Emergency One, Inc., of Florida, and distributed 
by Greenwood Fire Apparatus, Inc., of North Attle- 
boro. 

The fire apparatus requested is as follows: three, 
110-foot Aerial Ladder Trucks; three, 1,250 GPM 
Pumper Trucks; one Heavy Duty Rescue Vehicle. 

The Boston Fire Department has undertaken 
massive rebuilding programs to replace fire appa- 
ratus that has deteriorated badly from age and use. 

Emergency One Apparatus was first chosen in 
July, 1984, through a public advertising process. 
From July, 1 984, to July, 1 985, twenty-six pieces of 
equipment have been purchased from Emergency 
One and all have met or exceeded the Fire Depart- 
ment's stringent requirements for operational per- 
formance. This measure of performance has been 
documented from over 30,000 response to fires 
and other emergencies. 

This performance level parallels performance of 
Emergency One apparatus in several other major 
American cities such as, Chicago, Rochester, and 
in Fairfax County, VA, as well as in local communi- 
ties of Newton, Waltham, and Quincy, MA. 

The Fire Department decision to continue with 
Emergency One apparatus was based on the fol- 
lowing factors: Documented quality performance 
levels; standardization of apparatus which permits 



89 



reduction of parts inventories from multiple manu- 
facturers and less complications with, and faster 
training of, operational and maintenance personnel 
which lessens potential difficulties in operations 
and decreases maintenance down time. 

Major maintenance can be performed at the local 
distributor located only thirty-three miles from Bos- 
ton, Greenwood Fire Apparatus Company in North 
Attleboro. Greenwood has a complete repair and 
maintenance facility which has proven it's capabili- 
ties in past instances. 

Emergency One will meet, or exceed, the re- 
quired delivery dates. Past experience with several 
other manufacturers has shown poor delivery per- 
formances, which has resulted in unplanned main- 
tenance expenses of older units scheduled for 
replacement. 

Emergency One will provide the specified units 
to the City of Boston with a firm price schedule per 
unit, that will not reflect a 4 percent price increase 
that took effect on December 1 , 1985. In addition, if 
all seven units of apparatus are purchased from 
Emergency One, they will extend further pricing re- 
ductions that would amount to a total cost savings 
to the City of Boston of $86,000. 

Accordingly, your Honor's permission is respect- 
fully requested to award a contract, without public 
advertising and for delivery as scheduled, to green- 
wood Fire Apparatus, Inc., North Attleboro, for fire 
apparatus manufactured by Emergency One, Inc., 
in the amount of $1,210,000, net, a cost I consider 
reasonable, and that public advertising would 
serve no useful purpose. 

Respectfully, 

John F. Scalcione, 
Purchasing Agent. 
AFFAIRS OF THE ELDERLY 
Project "Bright Eyes" 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Your permission is hereby requested to award a 
contract, without advertising to the National Soci- 
ety to Prevent Blindness, Massachusetts Affiliate, 
Belmont, for the operation of Project "Bright Eyes" 
within the City of Boston in an amount not to exceed 
$5,000 for the period October 9, 1985, through 
June 30, 1986. 

Project "Bright Eyes," a free optical testing and 
follow-up program for the elderly, will be conducted 
twice monthly during the fall, winter and spring 
months with an approximate monthly caseload of 
forty persons and is a joint venture between the 
Commission on Affairs of the Elderly and the na- 
tional Society to Prevent Blindness, Massachu- 
setts Affiliate who have satisfactorily performed this 
service in the past. 

The funds to be provided under this contract will 
be used to meet food, professional and other ad- 
ministrative costs incurred by the society in the 
amount of approximately $500 per month which is 
reasonable for the service to be provided. 

Due to the unique nature of the service to be de- 
livered it is hereby requested that the commission 
be allowed to dispense with public advertising in 
awarding this contract. 

Administrative delays within the department are 
responsible for this award letter being submitted 
late. 

Sincerely, 

Michael Taylor, 
Commissioner. 
ASSESSING DEPARTMENT 
Consultant Services

dispense with public advertising and to award a

fessional services as a consultant to the Assessing

mentation, control, and verification procedures;

personal property assessments. 

The contractor is uniquely qualified to perform 
this work because of her extensive training and

shall be paid at the rate of $20 per hour. 

The term of this contract shall be from January 1 , 
1 986, through June 30, 1 986.

ing would serve no useful purpose. 

Sincerely, 

William B. Coughlin, 
Commissioner.

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
dispense with public advertising and to award a 
contract to Thomas E. Brown, Brockton, for profes- 
sional services as a real property appraiser to the 
Assessing Department. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will review computer-generated and field-reviewed 
values for consistency and accuracy, identify and 
resolve problem properties, provide data correc- 
tions and maintenance, and value recommenda- 
tions. 

Mr. Brown is uniquely qualified to perform this 
work because of his previous appraisal work and

able for the work to be performed. The contractor 
will be paid at the rate of $250 per diem.

ing would serve no useful purpose 
Sincerely, 

William B. Coughlin, 
Commissioner.

CONTRACTS AWARDED 
WITHOUT ADVERTISING 

The Mayor has approved the award- 
ing of contracts without advertising, 
based on the following communica- 
tions: 

ASSESSING DEPARTMENT 
Utility Appraisal Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to dis- 
pense with public advertising and to award a con- 
tract to R.W. Beck and Associates, Wellesley, for 
professional services as consultant engineers to 
the Assessing Department. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will provide valuation services, as required, relating 
to the telephone utility personal property located in 
the City of Boston . The contractor is a generally rec- 
ognized expert in the field of utility appraisal who 
has assisted the Assessing Department in the past 
and ongoing litigation before the Appellate Tax 
Board. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $15,000, which I have determined to be rea- 
sonable for the work to be performed. 

The term of this contract shall be from July 1 , 
1 985, through June 30, 1 986. This contract is being 
processed late because a reasonable estimate of 
the length, complexity and duration of the litigation 
could not be determined until this time. 

Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be performed, I believe that public advertis- 
ing would serve no useful purpose. 

Sincerely, 

William B. Coughlin, 
Commissioner. 

Legal Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to dis- 
pense with public advertising and to award a con- 
tract to the law firm of Gilman, McLaughlin, and 
Hanrahan, 1 Post Office Square, for legal services

Advertising 

A rate of $8 per inch of 1 2 lines (set solid) has been 
established for such advertisements as under the 
law must be printed in the City Record. Advertising 
and other copy must, except in emergencies, be in 
hand at the City Record office by 11 a.m., Monday of 
each week to insure its publication in the following 
Monday's issue. 



in representing the City of Boston and its Assessing 
Department, with respect to proceedings at the Ap- 
pellate Tax Board, and in the courtsof the Common- 
wealth, relating to matters of taxation and tax 
abatement litigation. 

This contract is for the period July 1, 1985, 
through June 30, 1986, at a cost not to exceed 
$55,000. The rate of compensation shall range 
from $50 to $1 75 per hour depending upon attorney 
involved. 

Due to the complex and technical nature of the 
litigation in the tax field and the recognized exper- 
tise of Gilman, McLaughlin and Hanrahan in this 
area, I have determined the cost to be reasonable. 

This contract is being processed late because 
reasonable estimates of the scope of services for 
length, complexity and duration of current and an- 
ticipated taxation cases could not be determined. 

Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be performed and the need for the continued 
services of representation by special counsel, who 
have great expertise in this area of law, advertising 
for public bids would serve no useful purpose. 
Sincerely, 

William B. Coughlin, 
Commissioner.

existing contract with this firm. Contract No 2068 
86 for repetitive services for the fiscal year 1986 
This contract requires the Mayor's approval for ami 
single repair of $2,000 or more. 

This request is being submitted late after trm 
work has been completed because the parti 
needed for the pump were not immediately avails! 
ble, therefore causing a delay. The bill for the won 
done was not received for almost a month afte 
completion of the work and a firm estimate was nr.! 
established immediately. 

In my opinion, the contractor is qualified to do tfi 
work herein-described, inasmuch as Greenwoo 
Fire Apparatus is thoroughly familiar with all type 
of work on said equipment. This price quoted fortr 
work is reaonable and it does not appear that ar 
lower price could be obtained by publicly advertij 
ing for bids and I believe that public advertisirj 
would serve no useful purpose. 

Very truly yours, 

Leo D. Stapleton, \f 
Fire Commissioner

LAW DEPARTMENT 
Processing of Claims, etc. 
•ar Mr. Mayor: 

!l respectfully request your permission to dis- 
inse with public advertising and to award a con- 
ct to Christine Moore, 15 Bay State Road. 



Under the terms of the contract, Ms. Moore will 
provide services to the Workers' Compensation Di- 
vision of the Law Department, including but not lim- 
ited to the processing of section 37 claims, 
scheduling of depositions, analysis of files, decla- 
ration of city's lien in third-party actions and other 
miscellaneous duties. Ms. Moore is exceptionally 
well qualified to perform these services because of 
her prior experience and background in the Law 
Department. 

The period of this contract shall be from Decem- 
ber 17, 1985, through June 1 , 1986. Compensation 
will not exceed $3,000, and the payments will be 
made at the rate of $3.50 per hour. This contract is 
necessary because Ms Moore will exceed the 
$2,000 service order limit 

This letter is late due to administrative and budg- 
etary delays in negotiating the contract. 

In view of the nature of the services to be per- 
formed and Ms. Moore's special qualifications, I be- 
lieve that public advertising would serve no useful 
purpose. 

Very truly yours, 

Joseph I. Mulligan, Jr.,

POLICE DEPARTMENT 
Student Intern Services 

Dear Sir; 

I respectfully request your permission to dis- 
pense with public advertising and to award a con- 
tract to Bette Jean Voke, of 60 Garland Street, 
Chelsea, for services as a student intern in the Bos- 
ton Police Department. 

Under the terms of the contract. Ms Voke will 
work in conjunction with the Office of Contracts and 
Development and her duties will include, but not 
limited to, conducting surveys with various police 
departments throughout the country, keeping files, 
compiling data and maintaining accurate records 
concerning this operation. Ms. Voke is currently an 
undergraduate student at Suffolk University major- 
ing in Criminal Deviance. Ms. Voke will use her ex- 
pertise and knowledge in this field to assist the 
Boston Police Department in conducting these sur- 
veys and collecting data. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $4,000, which I have determined to be reason- 
able for the part-time services in conjunction with 
this operation Her salary will be at a rate of $4.50 
per hour. The terms of this contract shall be from 
September 18, 1985, through June 30, 1986. 

Because of this part-time service and the reason- 
able cost of same, I believe that public advertising 
would serve no useful purpose. This letter was not 
forwarded earlier due to an administrative over- 
sight. 

Respectfully, 

Francis M. Roache, 
Police Commissioner. 

PUBLIC FACILITIES DEPARTMENT 
Operation of the Strand Theatre 

Dear Mr. Mayor; 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities Com- 
mission on October 10, 1985, 1 respectfully request 
your Honor's written permission to dispense with 
public advertisement and award a contract to the 
M. Harriet McCormack Center for the Arts, a non- 
profit corporation, with offices at 543 Columbia 
Road, Dorchester, for providing services for the op- 
eration of the Strand Theatre, including staff sala- 
ries, fringe benefits, office operations, travel, 
furnishings, equipment, and other miscellaneous 
expenses. 

The M. Harriet McCormack Center for the Arts, 



Inc. has administered the Strand Theatre since the 
Public Facilities Department acquired the building 
and the center opened in 1 979. The center acts as a 
community resource for cultural development for 
the residents of the city and promotes an atmo- 
sphere that encourages all communities in the city 
to feel welcome at the theatre. During 1984, over 
10,000 children and senior citizens used the the- 
atre for special daytime performances of theatre 
and dance, and on many occasions the theatre pro- 
vided performance space to nonprofit groups, first- 
time users and small community groups at little or 
no cost. 

The reason the McCormack Center is able to 
adopt such community supportive policies is be- 
cause it is a nonprofit agency with many of the 
Board of Directors being the same people who had 
been instrumental in saving and restoring the the- 
atre. 

This letter is being submitted subsequent to the 
commencement of the contract term due to budget- 
ary uncertainties being experienced by this depart- 
ment which have only recently been resolved. Also, 
the Public Facilities Commission determined that it 
was necessary to secure extensive detailed infor- 
mation concerning the exact nature of the services 
to be provided by the M Harriet McCormack Cen- 
ter, resulting in a further but unavoidable delay. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $50,000, which I have determined to be a rea- 
sonable cost for the services to be performed. The 
term of this contract shall be from September 1 , 
1 985, through June 30, 1 986. 

In view of the particular history of the donations of 
countless hours of time and energy to the operation 
of the theatre by the McCormack Center, and due to 
the unique ability of the center to provide a benefi- 
cial program for residents of all communities within 
the city, it is my judgment that public advertising 
would serve no useful purpose in this instance. 
Sincerely, 

Lisa G. Chapnick. 

Director. 

Design of Renovations 

Dear Mr Mayor: 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities Com- 
mission on November 7, 1985, I respectfully re- 
quest your Honor's written permission to dispense 
with further public advertisement and award a con- 
tract to Rothman and Rothman, Inc., a Massachu- 
setts corporation, with offices at 15 East Street. 
Under the terms of this contract, the architect will 
provide professional services for the design of the 
renovations which entail completion of the shell 
space for the Oral Surgery Unit at Boston City Hos- 
pital. Scope of work includes design, preparation of 
bid documents and supervision of architectural, 
electrical and mechanical services for the project, 
including the installation of six dental chairs and 
support functions. Compensation under this con- 
tract shall not exceed $74,750 (including $6,000 for 
supplementary services) which is a fixed fee of 
13.75 percent based on an estimated cost of con- 
struction of $500,000, which I have determined to 
be a reasonable cost for the work to be performed. 
The term of this contract shall be for seventeen 
weeks from date of execution. 

Following the advertisement of this project and 
receipt of proposals, the contractor was selected on 
the basis of a rating system undertaken by the Pub- 
lic Facilities Designer Selection Committee in ac- 
cordance with MGLc. 7, s. 30B et seq. I believe this 
contractor is qualified to perform the services re- 
quired. 

In view of the technical and professional nature of 
the services, and the selection process used, it is 



99 



my judgment that further public advertising would 
serve no useful purpose in this instance. 

Sincerely, 

LisaG. Chapnick, 
Director. 

Design of Fire-Damaged Area 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities Com- 
mission on November 7, 1985, I respectfully re- 
quest your Honor's written permission to dispense 
with further public advertisement and award a con- 
tract to Rothman and Rothman, Inc., a Massachu- 
setts corporation, with offices at 15 East Street. 
Under the terms of this contract, the architect will 
provide professional services for the design of re- 
pairs to the fire damaged Ambulatory Care Center 
and fifth floor renovations at Boston City Hospital. 
Repairs include new partitions, electrical, mechani- 
cal and grill work. The renovated areas will house 
Pediatric Outpatient Services for Boston City Hos- 
pital. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $65,875 (including $4,000 for supplementary 
services) which is a fixed fee of 13.75 percent 
based on an estimated cost of construction of 
$450,000, which I have determined to be a reason- 
able cost for the work to be performed. The term of 
this contract shall be for fourteen weeks from date 
of execution. 

Following the advertisement of this project and 
receipt of proposals, the contractor was selected on 
the basis of a rating system undertaken by the Pub- 
lic Facilities Designer Selection Committee in ac- 
cordance with MGL c. 7, s. 30B et seq. I believe this 
contractor is qualified to perform the services re- 
quired. 

In view of the technical and professional nature of 
the services, and the selection process used, it is 
my judgment that further public advertising would 
serve no useful purpose in this instance.

LisaG. Chapnick, 
Director. 



Water Booster Pump Replacement 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

During the past week, an inspection conducted 
by the Public Facilities Department Engineers, has 
concluded that the malfunctions to the domestic 
water booster pump, located at the Suffolk County 
Court House, can no longer be corrected, and the 
pump must be replaced immediately. At the present 
moment, without the services of domestic hot and 
cold water, the Court House buildings cannot main- 
tain the strict sanitary and health protection stand- 
ards needed to ensure the safety of all Court House 
officials and employees, and the general public that 
utilizes this facility. Therefore, it is imperative that 
prompt action be taken to replace the existing do- 
mestic water booster pump in order to prevent any 
further breakdowns which could render these 
buildings without domestic water service, and 
could force the Court House to shut down all opera- 
tions. 

Because of the exigency of the present situation 
and the potential threat to life and property of the 
City of Boston, I requested and received approval 
from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Divi- 
sion of Capital Planning and Operations to dis- 
pense with meeting the requirements of 
Massachusetts General Laws chapter 1 49, section 
44A, as it pertains to public advertising, providing 
we obtained bids from at least three reputable con- 
tractors normally engaged in this type of work. The 
results were as follows: 



P. J Kennedy & Sons, Inc., $10,420; J. Mc- 
Cusker, Inc., $19,870; and D & F Plumbing & Heat- 
ing, $20,500. 

Your Honor's written approval, therefore, is re- 
spectfully requested in recognition of the fact that 
an emergency situation does exist, to authorize dis- 
pensing with public advertising for bids and to 
award a contract to P. J. Kennedy & Sons, Inc. , 486 
Albany Street, for a total amount not to exceed 
$1 0,420. Upon execution, the work of this contract 
shall be accomplished within twenty-one calendar 
days. 

Sincerely, 

LisaG. Chapnick, 
Director. 

Exterior Electrical Repairs 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

At the Deer Island House of Correction, on Fri- 
day, September 27, 1 985, the high velocity winds of 
Hurricane Gloria severely damaged the exterior 
lighting system, fire alarm cables and communica- 
tion cables at various locations of this penal institu- 
tion. At the present moment, these damages have 
seriously jeopardized and restricted the security of 
this penal institution, and have diminished the ef- 
fectiveness of the existing fire alarm system. The 
hurricane damages have created a hazardous con- 
dition to life and property at the Deer Island House 
of Correction. Therefore, it is essential, under 
emergency procedure, to perform various electri- 
cal repairs to all damaged areas to insure the con- 
tinuation of all communication services, to insure 
the fire protection of all inmates and correction offi- 
cers, and to insure that this penal institution can 
maintain its strict security standards. 

Because of the exigency of the present situation 
and the potential threat to life and property of the 
City of Boston, I requested and received approval 
from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Divi- 
sion of Capital Planning and Operations to dis- 
pense with meeting the requirements of 
Massachusetts General Laws chapter 30, section 
39M, as it pertains to public advertising, providing 
we obtained bids from at least three reputable con- 
tractors normally engaged in this type of work. The 
results were as follows: 

J. J. Finn Electrical Service, Inc., $25,600; J. 
McKeen, Inc., $29,985; and Griffin Electric Corp., 
$31 ,000. 

Your Honor's written approval, therefore, is re- 
spectfully requested in recognition of the fact that 
an emergency situation does exist, to authorize dis- 
pensing with public advertising for bids and to 
award to J. J. Finn Electrical Services, Inc., 357 Ne- 
ponset Avenue, Dorchester, for a total amount not 
to exceed $25,600. Upon execution, the work of 
this contract shall be accomplished within twenty- 
one days. 

Sincerely, 

LisaG. Chapnick, 
Director. 

Disposal of P.C.B. -Containing Materials 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

On Monday, October 21, 1985, a leakage of 
P.C.B. -containing materials, originating from the 
existing overhead fixtures, was discovered at the 
Boston Fire Department Fire Alarm Headquarters 
building, located on the Fenway. This P.C.B. spill 
constitutes a serious threat to the surrounding envi- 
ronment and to the health of all individuals that are 
exposed to P.C.B. materials. 

Due to the numerous deleterious dangers posed 
to persons and property, the Public Facilities De- 
partment has ordered the services of Clean Har- 
bors, Inc., to begin the containment, cleanup and 



disposal operations. The release of hazardous ma- 
terials into the environment is governed by Massa- 
chusetts General Laws chapter 21 E, the 
Massachusetts Oil and Hazardous Materials Re- 
lease Prevention and Response Act. Under Massa- 
chusetts General Laws chapter 21 E, section 5(a), 
the City of Boston is responsible for the occurrence 
of any such hazardous materials release. There- 
fore, since immediate steps must be taken to pre- 
serve the health and safety of persons and 
property, there is not time to solicit bids for this pais 
ticular project. Because this project is necessitated 
by the emergency conditions now existing at the 
Fire Alarm Headquarters, this contract meets all re- 
quirements of Massachusetts General Laws chap- 
ter 30, section 39M and chapter 43, section 28, as it 
pertains to the dispensing of public advertising in 
cases of extreme emergency to restore any public 
service that shall preserve the health and safety of 
persons or property. 

Your Honor's written approval, therefore, is re- 
spectfully requested, in recognition of the fact that 
an emergency situation does exist, to authorize dis- 
pensing with public advertising for bids and ID 
award a contractor Clean Harbors, Inc., Kingston, 
a proven contractor with expertise in the correction 
of hazardous materials spills, for a total amount not 
to exceed $2,310. 

Due to the exigency of the present situation, our 
favorable past experiences with this contractor and 
the reasonable costs of these services, I believe 
that public advertising would serve no useful pur- 
pose in this particular case. Upon execution, the 
work of this contract shall be accomplished within 
fifteen days. 

Sincerely, 

Lisa G. Chapnick, 
Director. 



Emergency Roof Repairs 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

On Friday, September 27, 1985. the roofing of 
various buildings, including dormitory buildings, at 
the Deer Island House of Correction, and the roof 0»J 
the Administration Building, located at the Longle 
land Chronic Disease Hospital, received exten 
damages caused by strong hurricane winds. At 
present moment, the existing damages have 
posed various sections of these roofs to the out 
elements and to the possibilities of further d 
ages being inflicted upon the structure and inte 
of these buildings. At the Deer Island House of 
rection, the damaged buildings are the living q 
ters of inmates, and there is no available spaced 
temporarily relocate these inmates. At the Long Is 
land Chronic Disease Hospital, the Administratioj 
Building houses several patients, and various da 
partments that control the hospital operation* 
These roofing damages have created a most ha. 
ardous condition to the life and property of thea 
institutions. Therefore, it is necessary, under emej 
gency procedure, to perform all required roof nl 
pairs to these damaged buildings in order! 
prevent further damages to these buildings, to pr j 
vide suitable living conditions for patients and j 
mates, and to insure the continuation of tfj 
appointed tasks of the Long Island Chronic Disead 
Hospital's administrative operations. 

Because of the exigency of the present situatid 
and the potential threat to life and property of« 
City of Boston, I requested and received appro* 
from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Oil 
sion of Capital Planning and Operations to d | 
pense with meeting the requirements^ 
Massachusetts General Laws chapter 1 49, sect* 
44A. as it pertains to public advertising, providl

MAYOR FLYNN SUPPORTS HOUSE BILL 2352 



Testimony Delivered to the Committee on Human Services and Elder Affairs 
on the Need for Nutrition Outreach to Poor Families. 

Last month, we saw alarming data indicating a dramatic rise for 1985 in 
ie rate of infant mortality in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This evi- 
ence served to tragically underscore the need for the increased nutrition 
rograms that we had been urging on the Congress, with national support 
om groups and individuals such as my colleague Dr. Brown, Marian Wright 
delman of the Children's Defense Fund, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, 
id the National League of Cities. Together, we had struggled hard to make 
jr leaders see that infant mortality rates are functions of poverty rates. 

If an expectant mother does not have access to food and health care, 
ie is at much greater risk of delivering a low, birth weight infant. In turn, 
lis infant is in the greatest danger of dying in the first year of life. 

The new figures gave us cause, at the national level and at the local 
vel, to review our efforts and redouble our dedication. Over the past two 
onths, I have convened several meetings of local, state, and national public 
salth officials to assess the causes and the impact of programs imple- 
ented to date to deal with this serious national issue. 
In addition to lack of prenatal care reduced funding and eligibility levels. 



r pregnant women, these experts 
peatedly cited that increasing pov- 
ty among women and children as 
ell as dramatic cuts in federal nutri- 
3n programs were contributing to 
jing infant mortality. For example, 
e Food Stamp program suffered $7 
llion in cuts between 1982 and 
)85 and now only reaches just over 
If of 33.4 million Americans living 
poverty. This is also true in the 
Dmmonwealth where only one-half 
those eligible for Food Stamps re- 
iive them and those who are re- 
iving them may not be getting 
lough to adequately feed them- 
Ives. 

The Supplemental Food Program 
r Women, Infants and Children 
/IC) only served 40 percent of all 
gible women and children in 1986. 
Iiis exists at a time when a U.S. 
bpartment of Agriculture study has 
led the effectiveness of WIC at re- 
Icing low birth weights and increas- 
l] birth outcomes. 

'.This lack of participation in food 
|ograms is due to several factors. 
' e most significant is that the num- 
lr of families living in poverty is in- 
oasing at a time when programs 
ctablished to assist them are facing 



As a result eligible households face 
a number of barriers to their partici- 
pation in these programs including 
language, cumbersome application 
processes, and a general lack of in- 
formation being disseminated regard- 
ing the availability of food programs. 

Each year for the past five years, 
the U.S. Conference of Mayors Task 
Force on Homelessness and Hunger, 
of which I am chair, has reported on 
the impact of these cuts in cities 
such as Boston. 

That report notes that the demand 
for emergency food assistance in- 
creased by one-fourth in 88 percent 
of the cities surveyed. In Boston, we 
saw an 18 percent increase in de- 
mand last year. In fact, the demand 
for emergency food assistance is so 
overwhelming that we estimate that 
10 to 15 percent of the requests for 
emergency food assistance went un- 
filled during 1986 in Boston. The 
number of families with children re- 
questing emergency food assistance 
increased in 80 percent of the cities 
surveyed, including Boston. 

The bill which you are considering 
is a responsible and important mea- 
sure which would reach out and en- 
roll eligible households in federally 



funded food programs such as WIC, 
food stamps, elderly nutrition, and 
child care food programs. 

Past outreach efforts have been ef- 
fective. In 1984, a food stamp out- 
reach project in the Commonwealth 
increased food stamp applications in 
targeted welfare service offices by 16 
percent. A seven-month project was 
successful in adding 12,000 people 
to the WIC program. A similar out- 
reach effort utilizing bilingual, bicul- 
tural staffing increased the number 
of Southeast Asian participants in 
WIC by 20 percent. 

I believe that enactment of this 
legislation will result in fuller utiliza- 
tion of federal programs for those in- 
dividuals and households who need 
it most. We need outreach workers 
and effective outreach campaigns in 
those Boston neighborhoods which 
have alarmingly high infant mortality 
rates. Pregnant women in those 
neighborhoods not only need the 
health care that we are offering 
through programs such as Healthy 
Baby and Healthy Start, but an ade- 
quate diet for them and their chil- 
dren. The availability of WIC nutrition 
supplements and counseling, Food 
Stamps, and various nutrition pro- 
grams offer relief to families bur- 
dened by high shelter costs and 
relying on public assistance pro- 
grams which have not kept pace with 
the rising cost of living.

ATTENTION TO ALL BIDDERS 
I. Minority Business Requirements 



No bid for the award of this project will be consid- 
ered acceptable unless the general contractor 
complies fully with the following requirements for 
Minority Business Enterprise Utilization. 

Pursuant to the Supplemental Minority Participa- 
tion section of the contract, the general contractor 
must give satisfactory assurance that at least 20 
percent of his bid price shall be expended for minor- 
ity business enterprise. For the purposes of this 
paragraph, the term minority business enterprise 
means a business in which at least 51 percent of the 
beneficial ownership and control is held by one or 
more minority persons (Black, Hispanic, Asian- 
American, or American Indian). 

Each general contractor must complete, sign, 
and file with his bid the Minority Business Utilization 
Form. The Minority Business Utilization Form shall 
be completed and signed by the Minority Business 
Enterprise and the general contractor. Failure to 
submit a Minority Business Utilization Form with 
the bid proposal will result in the rejection of the bid. 

The City of Boston Minority Business Directory 
lists all minority owned businesses that have been 
certified as such bytheCityof Boston. Acopy of this 
directory can be obtained from the Awarded Au- 
thority or the Minority Business Office, 15 Beacon 
Street, fifth floor, Boston, MA 02108, telephone 
number 720-4300. If a contractor wishes to use a 
minority business that is not listed in the Directory, 
he must contact the Minority Business Office to ob- 
tain a copy and submit with his bid, a Minority Busi- 
ness Identification Statement. The dollar amount 
obligated to a non-certified (City of Boston) minority 
business will not count towards the minority busi- 
ness percentage requirements. 

PREBID CONFERENCE 

Bidders seeking information pertaining to the 
City of Boston's Affirmative Action and Minority 
Business Enterprise Utilization requirements are 
invited to attend prebid conference to be held on 
April 1, 1987, at 10 a.m., in Room 714, City Hall. All 
prospective bidders are urged to attend and will be 
held to knowledge of what there transpires, 
whether they are present or not. 

ATTENTION IS CALLED TO CHAPTER 370 OF 
THE ACTS OF 1963, WHICH MUST BE STRICTLY 
COMPLIED WITH . The commissioner reserves the 
right to reject any and all proposals or any item or 
items of the proposal should he deem it to be for the 
best interest of the city so to do.

MAYOR FLYNN'S "TREE OF LIFE" PROJECT 



Boston Mayor Raymond L. Flynn, joined by concerned South End residents, 
|)meless advocates, and social service providers, announced his decision on the 
ee of Life transitional housing project. Last August, the city unveiled a proposal 
r a 1 01 -unit transitional housing development for homeless women with children 
be built on a vacant BRA-owned parcel on Washington Street in the South End. 
jie proposal was developed in response to the growing need for shelter and serv- 
es for homeless women with children. Transitional housing provides homeless 
omen and children with a stable living environment for between six months and 
'0 years, during which time they participate in a coordinated set of services, such 
i; peer counseling, job training, and daycare, that prepares them to make the tran- 
tion from dependency to independent living. 

The announced plan is the product of over six months of meetings between 
ommissioner of Elderly Affairs Michael Taylor, the Mayor's community liaison for 
;is project, residents of the South End, and social service providers. The BRA also 
ttmmissioned a study by the Women's Institute for Housing and Economic Devel- 
jment, Inc., which analyzed the social service needs of the target population. 

After careful review of the neighborhood's comments, the recommendations 
the social service report, and the BRA's financial feasibility analysis, the project 
as redesigned to include thirty-six transitional units, twenty-four moderate-in- 
jme condominiums, and thirty market-rate condominiums. By reducing the over- 
I density from one hundred-one units to ninety and by redesigning it to include 
Dth transitional and private housing, this plan responds to both the needs of 
Dmeless women with children and the concerns of South End residents. There 
as been a great deal of community participation in the development of this pro- 
Dsal, as well as the recently approved SENHI plan. The Tree of Life plan has re- 
iived broad support from neighborhood residents, homeless advocates, and 
)cial service providers. 



Estah Yens, a South End homeowner, 
lid, "As a longtime South End resi- 
sn\ who lives adjacent to this pro- 
ved development, I say 'hats off' to 
ayor Flynn for working with neighbor- 
ed residents to construct a workable 
■oposal. We've had an opportunity to 
r our concerns and we are pleased 
iat the Mayor's plan reflects many of 
ar shared goals for the neighbor- 
ed ." 

Kathy Mainzer, executive director of 
ie Massachusetts Coalition for the 
omeless, said, "Mayor Flynn has ob- 
ously heard and responded to the 
ancerns of advocates who work with 
nd for homeless families. We're 
leased to see a mix of transitional and 
ermanent housing. The transitional 
ousing will fill a real gap for homeless 
imilies seeking services. We appreci- 
tethe Mayor's leadership in recogniz- 
ig the need and bringing together the 
isources to make it happen." 

Frank Benoit, longtime South End 
isident, said, "Mayor Flynn's plan ad- 
resses a critical need in our society. I 



believe this plan shows compassion, 
concern, and a genuine desire to help 
those people in need. The plan is a real- 
istic balance of available resources and 
the desires of the community. It's time 
for everyone to realize that we cannot 
wait any longer to resolve this crisis. 
We're dealing with human lives. In one 
sentence, the Mayor's plan combines 
compassion and respect for human dig- 
nity." 

Ellen Gallagher, author of "No Place 
Like Home," a study of homeless fami- 
lies, said, "The Tree of Life presents a 
realistic response to the needs of home- 
less families. Our study noted that a sig- 
nificant percentage of families living in 
shelters and hotel/moteis for extended 
periods of time will benefit from pro- 
grams such as supported housing and 
job training to break the cycle of home- 
lessness and reliance on emergency, 
stop-gap programs." 

Dave Whitty, executive director of 
Shelter, Inc., said, "The final proposal 
reflects the responsiveness of the city 
to the concerns of the neighborhood. 



The Tree of Life project provides 
needed housing for people in the South 
End. Mayor Flynn is to be congratulated 
for an initiative that both produces affor- 
dable housing and addresses the con- 
cerns of the community." 

Jon Perry, South End resident, said, 
"I am now persuaded that the Mayor's 
modified plan calling for thirty-six units 
of transitional housing for homeless 
women and their children, among 
ninety total units on the RC-9 parcel, will 
work for the benefit of everyone — the 
people it is intended to serve, their 
neighbors, and the community as a 
whole. I am especially heartened by the 
administration's commitment to pre- 
serving and upgrading as much of the 
two existing community gardens as 
possible in the design and development 
of the housing." 

Michael Kane, executive director of 
the Boston Affordable Housing Coali- 
tion, stated, "The Mayor has clearly 
been responsive to the recent South 
End community compromise recom- 
mendation which linked development 
on the various SENHI parcels to the de- 
velopment of Tree of Life. He is to be ap- 
plauded for his courage and flexibility in 
responding to community concerns 
without abandoning basic principles." 

Kip Tiernan, longtime advocate for 
poor women, said, "I think the Mayor, 
neighborhood residents, and advo- 
cates for the poor have been willing to 
listen to each other. I don't look at our 
combined effort to come up with a plan 
for the Tree of Life site as a compromise. 
I think of it as a collaboration. The 
thoughtful planning that went into this 
final product will result in needed hous- 
ing for a fragile population." 

Pat Cusick, executive director of the 
South End Neighborhood Action Pro- 
gram (SNAP) and longtime South End 
resident, said "Programs planned by 
bureaucrats are never as effective as 
programs designed at the grassroots 
level. Mayor Flynn is to be congratu- 
lated because the all-inclusive commu- 
nity review process, headed by Elderly 
Affairs Commissioner Michael Taylor, 
(Continued on next page) 



Tree of Life . . . 

(Continued from front page) 

has yielded the best thinking of the di- 
verse elements of the South End. This 
community process has resulted in the 
announced program which will benefit 
not only families to be serviced, but also 
the South End neighborhood." 

David King, vice-president of City 
Mission Society and a South End resi- 
dent, said, "Mayor Flynn is to be con- 
gratulated for his vision and 
compassion in proposing the creation 
of new units of housing throughout Bos- 
ton for mothers and children who are 
presently without housing. The City 
Mission Society pledges to work with 
the city in seeking to offer services 
which will lead to a more stable future 
for these women and children. As a 
South End resident, I welcome them to 
our neighborhood and look forward to a 
speedy plan for the building of the new 
housing, selection of the residents, and 
provision of job training and other 
needed services." 

Val Lanier, homeless advocate, said, 
"I strongly support the new design of 
the Tree of Life program. It appears to 
be both responsive to community 
wishes and meets the needs of families 
in the city. The number of units will have 
a positive impact on homeless families 
without negatively impacting the South 
End community as previously feared." 

Mayor Flynn said, "I want to applaud 
the residents of the South End for their 
concern for, and willingness to help 
with, the plight of homeless women and 
children. The plan we unveiled reflects 
both their sensitivity to the problem of 
homelessness and my administration's 
attempt to be sensitive to the needs of 
the neighborhood." 

The project's proposed design repli- 
cates a typical South End block, with 
brick Victorian townhouses. The plans 
call for an on-site daycare facility, on- 
site parking, and the preservation of ad- 
jacent open space. The project design 
insures that the transitional units are in- 
distinguishable from the rest of the de- 
velopment and that the new 
development blends in with the sur- 
rounding South End neighborhood.
