RAYMOND L. FLYNN OFFICIAL CHRONICLE, MUN.C.PAL AFFAIR^ BRUCE °" B ° LU * G 

MAYOR OF BOSTON PRESIDENT, CITY COUNCIL 



VOL. 80 MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 1988 NO. 1 



MAYOR SIGNS MINORITY/WOMEN BUSINESS ENTERPRISE ORDER 



Mayor Raymond L. Flynn, on December 17, signed an Executive Order 
establishing the Minority and Women Business Enterprise Development Pro- 
gram for the City of Boston. The order establishes standards and guidelines 
to be used by city departments to encourage business opportunities and ac- 
cess for minority and women-owned enterprises to all contractual expendi- 
tures for goods, services and construction projects. 

"The City of Boston is adding a new and stronger dimension to our pol- 
icy of inclusion," said Mayor Flynn at the signing. "We are taking affirmative 
steps to ensure that all share in the benefits of economic growth by providing 
access and opportunities to firms owned by minorities and women." 
Earl Campbell, chairman of enterprises. The amendment encour- 



Manassa Systems, a minority-owned 
business firm, said, "The minority 
business community looks upon this 
Executive Order as providing the 
greatest historic potential for minori- 
ties to do business with the City of 
Boston in recent history." 

The M/WBE Order provides that 
city departments will secure at least 
fifteen percent of goods and services 
from minority-owned firms and an ad- 
ditional five percent from businesses 
owned by women. The program will 
be coordinated by M/WBE Coordina- 
tor William Byard who will report di- 
rectly to the director of Administrative 
Services. Coordinator Byard will also 
provide staff support to the eleven- 
member Minority and Women Busi- 
ness Advisory Council, which 
includes eight representatives of the 
minority and women business com- 
munities, in addition to the Mayor's 
policy director, the senior advisor on 
equal rights, and the director of the 
Women's Commission. The operating 
budget for the M/WBE Program is 
$179,000. 

In conjunction with the Executive 
Order, Mayor Flynn promulgated pro- 
cedures for the implementation of 
the program. In addition, the city has 
issued a Request for Proposals to 
augment monitoring and staff training 
systems for the program. 

Mayor Flynn also noted his support 
for an amendment to the National 
League of Cities' Municipal Policy 
that urges federal and private sector 
assistance for new minority business 



ages technical and advisory assist- 
ance and stresses the importance of 
contractual and joint venture partner- 
ships for minority firms. 

Minority and women-owned busi- 
ness vendors will be certified under 
a new agreement between the State 
Office of Minority Business Assist- 
ance and the Mayor's Office of Jobs 
and Community Service. 

MBTA POLICE OFFICERS 
MAKE KEY ARREST 

Praising Chief Thomas P. Maloney 
and the Authority's Police Department, 
MBTA General Manager James F. 
O'Leary announced the arrest, in the 
early hours of December 17, of an 
armed criminal near the Chinatown 
transit station. The two arresting offi- 
cers recognized the man from wanted 
posters. 

Officers Joseph P. Mastorilli, 39, of 
Easton, and Edward M. O'Malley, 38, of 
Foxboro, had carried out a station 
check at Chinatown on the Orange 
Line, when they spotted the wanted 
criminal, Daniel Birmingham (AKA Dan- 
iel Rutinger), at the corner of Beech and 
Washington Streets in downtown Bos- 
ton. The man was found to be in posses- 
sion of a .22 caliber revolver, a ski mask, 
and a change of clothing. 

Birmingham was wanted as an es- 
capee from the Plymouth MCI, where 
he had been serving a sentence for 
armed robbery. He was charged with il- 
legal possession of a firearm and was 
arraigned in Boston Municipal Court. 



Mastorilli and O'Malley are responsi- 
ble for a total of 552 arrests so far this 
year, 80 percent of these (441) through 
recognition from wanted posters. 

O'Leary praised the MBTA Police De- 
partment's continuing success in its 
battle against crime throughout the sys- 
tem since the inception of Governor Mi- 
chael Dukakis's comprehensive 
anti-crime program in 1983. In Septem- 
ber, Governor Dukakis announced that 
crime in the MBTA system was down by 
26 percent since 1983, and down 20 
percent from last year. Crime is also 
down on each of the transit lines. 

The T Police has activated extra de- 
tails for the holiday season, resulting in 
an increase of over 60 percent in cover- 
age at key locations throughout the sys- 
tem, for the safety of MBTA passengers. 

One other direct result of Governor 
Dukakis's program to improve safety on 
the transit system became evident in 
March, 1986, when the MBTA Police 
Department became the first transit po- 
lice in the nation, and the first police 
body in Massachusetts, to receive for- 
mal accreditation from the national 
Commission on Accreditation of Law 
Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) for 
"the highest level of professional stand- 
ards." 

Accreditation by CALEA included a 
thorough investigation of the depart- 
ment's hiring, training, promotion and 
budgeting procedures, criminal investi- 
gation, officers' code of conduct stand- 
ards and arrest procedures, and 
security and trial preparation stand- 
ards. 

BOSTON RECEIVES $1 MILLION 
IN FEDERAL AID FOR HOMELESS 

Mayor Raymond L. Flynn, on Decem- 
ber 24, announced that the U.S. Depart- 
ment of Housing and Urban 
Development has approved the city's 
request, submitted by the Public Facili- 
ties Department, for $1 million in emer- 
gency assistance for Boston's 
(Continued on next page) 



Aid For Homeless . . . 

(Continued from previous page) 

homeless population. The federal 
funds, made available through the Ste- 
wart B. McKinney Homeless Assist- 
ance Act, will lever an additional $2.7 
million in city, state, foundation and pri- 
vate money for a total of $3.7 million to 
support expanded shelter beds and 
services for the homeless. 

"This money will allow us to create 
372 new shelter beds in Boston and pro- 
vide important support services, such 
as job training and child care," said 
Mayor Flynn. "That we were able to se- 
cure $1 million out of a total of $15 mil- 
lion available nationwide is a tribute to 
the dedication and leadership of the 
Massachusetts Congressional delega- 
tion, House Speaker Jim Wright, Mitch 
Snyder of the Center for Creative Nonvi- 
olence and the more than twenty local 
nonprofit organizations that provide 
services to Boston's homeless." 

The $3.7 million will enable the city to 
more than double the number of people 
it currently services. Among the addi- 
tional services will be child care for 200 
children and help for 219 elderly and 
handicapped persons. 

"This is a great Christmas present for 
Boston's needy," said Lisa G. Chap- 
nick, the director of the city's Public Fa- 
cilities Department. "But we can't lose 
sight of the fact that the federal govern- 
ment continues to give with one hand 
and tak\ ^.vay with the other. The re- 
cently passed budget, for instance, 
slashes $768,000 from the city's Com- 
munity Development Block Grant 
(CDBG) allocation. That just makes it 
more difficult for us to expand the city's 
supply of permanent and affordable 
housing." 

Since 1984, the City of Boston has 
spent over $10 million to assist the 
homeless — one of the highest per cap- 
ita allocations of any major city in the 
country. 

The $1 million in emergency assist- 
ance money is the third grant the city 
has received in recent months under 
the Stewart B. McKinney Homeless As- 
sistance Act. Boston was also awarded 
$317,000 for four emergency shelters 
and $500,000 for health care services. 

The McKinney Homeless Assistance 
Act, named for the late Connecticut rep- 
resentative who championed the cause 
of the homeless prior to his death last 
year, was passed in June with the active 



support of the U.S. Conference of May- 
ors Task Force on Hunger and Home- 
lessness, chaired by Mayor Flynn.

of men and women who are so deeply committed to the city that we are all 
proud to call "Our Hometown." 

I feel a deep sense of comfort that comes from being among those who 
believe in the traditional values of hard work and fair play. These are values 
you learn from life. To learn them, you don't have to attend a great university 
or read a textbook, as important as those endeavors are. No, they are values 
you learn over time, perhaps beginning at a young age, as I did, by watching 
hard-working parents striving to make a better life for their children. They 
worked hard and long, supporting each other to be productive breadwinners, 
in tough times and in periods of poor health — working even harder to be a 
better mother, and a better father. 

Or maybe you learn these values by growing up in a city where adults 
believe they have an obligation to help children; where the strong believe 
they have an obligation to help the weak and the needy. 

My path to the Mayor's Office took me along many roads, and I learned 
many important lessons. But perhaps the most important value that I brought 
with me to the Mayor's Office was a belief, that the fundamental obligation of 
government is really, helping people. 

Now, before I go any further, I really want to thank you, the people of 
Boston, for giving me this opportunity to be the Mayor of the greatest city in 
America. Let me also tell you that my enthusiasm for hard work and leading 
this city is as great today as it was the day I stood before you, four years 
ago, to be sworn in as the Forty-sixth Mayor of Boston. 

This morning I want to share with you some thoughts about the next four 
years. I want to talk about what is important to me, in terms of personal and 
political values, as I start a new term. 

I remember very clearly the wonderful response you gave me four years 
ago at the swearing-in when I said that the hopes that unite us are much 
greater than the narrow issues that divide us. We had learned from Dr. Martin 
Luther King, Jr. that "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," 
and I knew that you were going to stand beside me as we moved this city 
forward, bringing about a city governed by one set of rules that apply evenly 
to everyone. 

We've made some important progress in bringing this very diverse city 
together. We always understood that our diversity is in fact our strength and 
we said it from the start. We also know, however, that we can't look back. We 
must move forward. We must continue to build on the progress we have al- 
ready made. 

Together, we've been building a city. Nothing takes more vision, commit- 
ment, and sheer work than building our city and making it work. 



In Boston, a few days before be- 
coming our nation's President, John 
F. Kennedy told us, quoting the First 
Governor of Massachusetts, John 
Winthrop: 
" 'We must always consider that 
we shall be as a City upon a Hill 
— the eyes of all people upon 
us.' " 

We know that there is more to a 
city than glittering towers and fash- 
ionable streets. Those things no 
more make a city than four walls and 
a ceiling make a home. A city is peo- 
ple. People are as dynamic and di- 
verse as any skyline that we could 
ever imagine. 

Building a city means that we must 
never forget that no matter how 
grand the city of brick and steel 
grows, it must always serve — and 
never dominate — the people, the 
families who give it life. 

Our work is never done. No great 
city is ever finally built. Only cities 
that have died are finished. We must 
continue to work hard to ensure that 
a vibrant, dynamic, and healthy Bos- 
ton is our legacy for future genera- 
tions. 

Cities are built on foundations of 
human values and governments are 
made the same way. It is our system 
of values that defines who we are. 
That is, we are what we believe in. 

We believe in a Boston that is 
compassionate, open, and honest. 

We believe in fundamental human 
dignity. 

We believe in the integrity of each 
and every member of our extended 
family. 

Our vision is being created out of 
these shared beliefs in what is good, 
what is right, and what is desirable 
for Boston. 

I talked about vision and values 
when I asked for your support in my 
quest to continue as your Mayor. As I 
(Continued on next page)

(Continued from front page) 
told you then, the standard that we 
are all striving to meet, in terms of 
the meaning of our work, can be 
summarized in some humble, but 
meaningful words from St. Francis. 
They are printed on a simple plaque 
that my family gave me years ago, 
and that I keep on my desk. 
"Lord, make me an instrument of 
your peace. Where there is hatred 
let me sow love . . . where there 
is despair, hope; where there is 
darkness, light . . ." 
On the day I announced for reelec- 
tion, I pointed across Boston Harbor 
from Jeffries Point in East Boston. 
As I gazed up at those shimmering 
glass towers of the downtown, I 
made a statement that I drew from 
deep down inside. 

I told you how much it would mean 
to me, to be able to say, that during 
my public life, I was able to build 
lasting bridges of opportunity be- 
tween that booming Downtown and 
the people in the neighborhoods who 
historically have been left behind. 
We're already doing that in some sig- 
nificant ways. 

• Later this week, as a result of the 
success of our national-model, 
linkage program, I will be an- 
nouncing a significant new com- 
mitment of linkage dollars that will 
connect Downtown growth to 
neighborhood families by providing 
hundreds of critically needed new 
units of affordable housing. 

• Our Parcel-to-Parcel Linkage Pro- 
gram, which is just getting under- 
way, is a first-in-the-nation 
partnership for economic justice, 
that directly links Downtown devel- 
opment with development in the 
neighborhoods. 

Our commitment to linkage springs 
from our belief that all children 
should be able to grow up knowing 
that society cares about them; that 
every family should be able to plan 
and dream, secure in the knowledge 
of adequate and predictable incomes 
from good jobs. 

I envision a day when all of this 
will be possible. But that day is not 
today my friends, and the true test of 
our moral worth as a government is 
how hard we're willing to work to 
bring that day closer. 



It all starts with work. 
Pope John Paul II, who was a Pas- 
tor to the workers of Poland, thought 
about it this way: 

"The Greatness of Work is In- 
side Man." 

A good job means self-respect and 
pride. People feel they count and 
they're filled with a feeling of self-es- 
teem. They become strong individ- 
uals, they build strong families, and 
become the building blocks of stable 
and healthy communities. 

Successful cities are made of all 
kinds of people — Black and White, 
Hispanic, Asian, newcomer and na- 
tive, families and individuals — who 
believe they have a stake in that city. 
So it's not just a matter of rhetoric 
when we say that our goal as a city 
is to give every resident that sense 
of self-respect. I can't imagine there 
is a city in America where a willing 
person has a better chance than 
right here in Boston. There is no- 
where else in America that opportuni- 
ties will be greater in the dozen 
years that separate us from the 
twenty-first century. In the coming 
years, thousands of new jobs will be 
created in Boston. It's our job to see 
that Boston residents get their fair 
share. 

Today, I have a very special pledge 
to make to our young people, espe- 
cially to our children in the Boston 
Public Schools: 

My commitment — Boston's com- 
mitment — is a good job at a living 
wage for every young person willing 
to work. 

Through expanded public-private 
partnerships, and with new city initia- 
tives like the soon-to-be announced 
Boston Jobs Academy, we will keep 
building the structures needed to 
meet this goal. Existing programs 
like the Boston Compact, Boston for 
Boston, our new Jobstarts Network, 
the plan for excellence, and 
A.C.C.E.S.S. have already proven 
successful. Surely, a city that has 
such a profound economic impact on 
Massachusetts and the entire New 
England Region should at least be 
able to offer its own people good- 
paying jobs. 

Our greatest natural resource is 
the potential for creativity that lives 
in every child. Children are born with 
hope in their hearts and dreams in 



their minds. It's our responsibility to 
nurture these hopes. 

Yet it seems to me that as a soci- 
ety we've been discouraging the 
young for too long, perhaps out of 
our own lack of vision. It is time for 
society to start inspiring its children 
with a sense of what they can do. 

Those of us who have been busy 
telling our children what they can't 
do should be challenged to look at 
the world through a young person's 
eyes. They would see the world in a 
far less cynical way. The child's per- 
spective forces us to be honest with 
ourselves. It also forces us to break 
free of those limits that we adults im- 
pose on the possibilities for a better 
society, a better Boston. 

The need is there. The opportunity 
is waiting. The question is, do we, as 
a city, a state, and a nation — both 
the public and private communities 
— have the will? 

Only time will tell, but the answer 
must be yes. 

Because I believe it's just plain un- 
fair for even a single family to be 
trapped in poverty in a city and a na- 
tion of such tremendous wealth. 

It's just plain unfair for any kid to 
grow up illiterate in the shadows of 
the greatest academic institutions in 
America. 

It's just plain unfair for people to go 
without adequate health care when 
they live next door to some of the 
world's most respected medical cen- 
ters. 

Over the last four years, we've 
worked to build the bridges of eco- 
nomic opportunity to Boston's neigh- 
borhoods. But we also know we 
cannot and should not be expected 
to do it alone. 

Because poverty, illiteracy, and 
lack of affordable housing are not 
just poor peoples' problems. They're 
not just Boston's problems. 

Growing poverty is an American 
problem and we need the support 
from our Federal Government to be- 
gin to deal with it. 

We are approaching a Presidential 
Election that may be the most critical 
since 1932 in terms of the economic 
direction America will take. Urban 
leaders know how government 
works. We fully understand — per- 
haps better than most officials in 
(Continued on next page)

(Continued from previous page) 

Washington — the potentially devas- 
tating impact of the national deficit. 
So we're not looking for a blank 
check for big-ticket spending pro- 
grams. 

What we are looking for is a leader 
who is sensitive to the needs in 
America's cities; who is willing to 
work with us on compassionate and 
sensible programs to fight poverty, 
homelessness, and illiteracy. 

If America is to be truly strong, we 
must maintain a strong commitment 
to the basic needs of our poor and 
working families. That's just what I 
said recently when I appeared before 
the Budget Committee of the United 
States Congress, speaking for the 
mayors of America's major cities. It 
was my task to put before the Con- 
yress a plea for basic fairness for 
America's urban centers. 

Now, perhaps the greatest obsta- 
cle we face is the mind-set of federal 
officials, who say we can'f do any- 
thing about problems like infant mor- 
tality and inadequate job training. 
What they're really saying is they 
refuse to do anything. 

Well, just because fairness is out 
of fashion these days for some in 
Washington, we refuse to apologize 
for our vision: a nation that can de- 
fend the dreams of its working fami- 
lies at home, just as well as it 
defends its national security interests 
abroad. 

If you think fairness costs too 
much, just look at America's prisons, 
jails, and the growing number of 
soup kitchens, and add up the toll 
that poverty takes. I say, we pay 
now, or we pay later. 

In Boston, we're taking the prob- 
lems head-on, because we have a 
city to build and people to serve. 
Serving means listening, caring, and 
delivering. 

Just recently, I reminded people at 
City Hall of the basic fact that gov- 
ernment's job is to help people solve 
problems they can't solve alone; 
whether it's a family without heat in 
winter, a retiree with a question 
about her pension check, or a neigh- 
borhood group requesting improve- 
ments for their local park. I said that 
if the day ever comes, when that call 
for help is not the most important 



call you take all day, that's the day 
we should all get out of this busi- 
ness. Because if we lose our zeal for 
service, then we surrender our right 
to serve. 

I am pleased to tell you that we 
are ready to keep moving forward — 
with zeal and pride — to keep Bos- 
ton on solid financial ground and 
provide a level of services that will 
be just as good as the people we 
serve. We will keep moving forward, 
for example, on our nearly $1 billion 
investment in rebuilding Boston: its 
police stations, neighborhood li- 
braries, medical centers, parks, and 
roadways. 

Here again, however, we need 
partners. Like every city and town in 
Massachusetts, we cannot sustain 
this progress without a fair and equal 
partnership with State government. 
We need State cooperation to pro- 
vide the quality of services that peo- 
ple deserve: in public safety, 
environmental health, industrial de- 
velopment, and every other category 
of services. 

We know Boston is the greatest 
single generator of economic activity 
in the state, particularly in terms of 
pumping revenues into the state trea- 
sury. 

It's time for fairness. 

I can assure you, we will never shy 
away from standing up for our city 
when we're treated callously and un- 
fairly. 

Fighting for what we believe in is 
one of Boston's proudest traditions. 
It's part of building a city, building a 
hometown, where our kids can grow 
up free of the deadly menace of the 
drug pusher, and where the schools 
are giving them tools for the future. 

It's part of building a city where 
the arts are vibrant and accessible to 
all; where there's affordable housing 
for working families; and where a 
strong economy continues to grow 
and to open its doors to people 
who've never known anything but 
having those doors slammed in their 
faces. 

This is my vision for Boston. Not 
just for some — but for everyone. 

We are striving for that day, when 
no matter which neighborhood you 
live in, no matter who you are, you 
can say with pride, the shining city 
on a hill is my hometown. 



ABCD FILM EXPLORES 
HOUSING OPTIONS 
FOR THE ELDERLY 

Action for Boston Community Devel- 
opment's Elder Services Department 
and the Boston University Film Unit re- 
cently joined forces to produce a docu- 
mentary film on shared living as a 
housing option for older people. 

At the recent premiere showing of 
"Open House" at the Boston Public Li- 
brary, Euterpe Dukakis, Governor Du- 
kakis's mother; Frank Ollivierre, 
regional director of the Administration 
on Aging; Paul Lanzikos, secretary, 
Massachusetts Executive Office of El- 
der Affairs; and Dorothy Altman, elder 
housing coordinator for the Massachu- 
setts Executive Office of Communities 
and Development were on hand to dis- 
cuss crucial housing issues as they re- 
late to the elderly. 

Throughout the eighteen-minute 
documentary, Gray Panther founder 
and Shared Living participant Maggie 
Kuhn discusses her ten years of shared 
living experience in Philadelphia. The 
film explores the pros and cons of 
shared living while describing a wide 
range of housing options including ex- 
tended-family living in private homes, 
congregate housing, home-match ar- 
rangements, lodging homes, and room- 
mate situations. Equally important, the 
film helps older people examine *hese 
issues for themselves.

Shared living advocates were also on 
hand to address issues of elder hous- 
ing. Ginny Robinson, ABCD elder af- 
fairs specialist, commented on current 
decision making in our society. "As 
things stand now," she asked, "Who is 
it that makes the decisions about what 
kind of housing is developed? It's the 
developers or perhaps the government 
... but as we've been hearing that really 
needs to change." 

Mrs. Euterpe Dukakis stressed the 
demographics of the elderly popula- 
tion, namely "that senior citizens make 
up a larger and larger portion of our so- 
ciety" with an "increasing need for 
communities to plan housing for their 
senior citizens and to look for creative 
and meaningful ways to meet this need 
. . . We have dynamic, competent sen- 
iors who are perfectly capable of play- 
ing a leading role in planning alternative 
methods of housing." 

Paul Lanzikos likewise emphasized 
"the need to look creatively at an array 
of housing choices. At EOEA (Execu- 
tive Office of Elder Affairs)," he said, 
"we want to involve elders in every as- 
pect of decision making and planning." 

Dorothy Altman encouraged older 
people to get involved in planning for al- 
ternative housing in their respective 
communities saying that "at the state 
level, we are just waiting to hear what 
kinds of thoughts you have and how we 
can help you carry them out." 

In a written statement Maggie Kuhn, 
who was unable to attend, commented 
about the film. "It is a significant social 
commentary on the need for long-range 
planning for our cities and the need for 
participation of the people involved in 
those plans. It shows how urgently we 
need a comprehensive, long-range, na- 
tional housing policy in America . . . Na- 
tional housing policy should be 
developed by the people and tested in 
our neighborhoods where people of all 
ages can be involved."

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. 1929-1968 



As Boston commences the fifth annual celebration of Martin Luther 
King's birthday, it is important to note the relevance this great American con- 
tinues to have to all of us, irrespective of our color, race, or creed. 

King is an American leader of the same stature as Abraham Lincoln and 
John F. Kennedy; he helped to shape the social forces of his time into a 
mass movement that served to remind America not just of its highest aspira- 
tions, but of its foremost responsibilities. 

King's message, on behalf of his fellow Blacks, is understood by all be- 
leaguered people throughout the world. It is a message that still inspires re- 
sistance to injustice, whether it is on the streets of Johannesburg, Belfast, or 
New York City. King was not just for civil rights, he was for human rights. 

Twenty years ago this winter, King and his followers met to plan a "poor 
people's campaign" that would challenge the federal government to imple- 
ment comprehensive anti-poverty programs for the needy. That plan never 
materialized, because King was assassinated in Memphis later that year. 

It is clear that if King were alive today he would be speaking for the 
poor, for the homeless, and for the thousands of people shut out of Ronald 
Reagan's America. He would be challenging the profit-makers who judge suc- 
cess by the bottom line. He would inspire Americans to rise above their fears 
and move toward the promised land, where liberty, justice, and the pursuit of 
happiness includes everyone, not just the powerful. 

The celebration of Martin Luther King Day in Boston — and throughout 
the world — is a tribute to the enormous strides in civil rights made possible 
by King's life work. It is also a reminder of the formidable work that lies 
ahead. 

Boston's great Irish poet John Boyle O'Reilly, in an address to Blacks at 
Faneuil Hall in 1885, said that, "every heart that beats for humanity, beats 
with the oppressed." As we celebrate Martin Luther King's legacy, let us con- 
tinue to uphold the values that King exemplified, for they are the values to 
which America aspires. 



MANAGING ATTENDANCE SHOULD 
CONTINUE TO BE A HIGH PRI- 
ORITY IN BOSTON 

In the last two years the city has 
placed greater emphasis on its Manag- 
ing Attendance Program (MAP) in an ef- 
fort to control absenteeism among 
public employees. That emphasis is im- 
portant to improve employee productiv- 
ity and service delivery, decrease sick 
leave costs and eliminate abuse. In 
1986, approximately $14 million in 
wages was paid to city and county em- 
ployees who did not work due to sick- 
ness. The costs of temporary em- 
ployees, overtime and lost municipal 
services would add to that figure. The 



Personnel Division of the Administra- 
tive Services Department is responsi- 
ble for administering the MAP, and at 
this time needs to play a larger role in 
the coordination of the program. With 
the strong support of the Mayor and Di- 
rector of the Administrative Services 
Department, Personnel should move 
forward to ensure that the administra- 
tion of the Program is uniform and cen- 
tralized. 

In 1978, the Boston Municipal Re- 
search Bureau issued a Special Report 
characterizing Boston's sick leave pro- 
gram as poorly supervised, frequently 
abused and too expensive. The report 
recommended that the city, among 
other things, develop and implement an 



integrated computerized Personnel/ 
Payroll system to manage sick leave us- 
age. In 1979, Mayor White issued an 
Executive Order which established the 
MAP. This program was designed to 
curtail sick leave abuse while not in- 
fringing upon an employee's legitimate 
use of sick time. It established standard 
procedures for monitoring sick leave, 
identifying patterns of abuse and taking 
appropriate disciplinary actions. It also 
identified personal problems that may 
cause excessive absenteeism and pro- 
vided assistance to address these prob- 
lems. In 1984, Mayor Flynn issued the 
same Executive Order on Managing At- 
tendance. However, a 1986 Bureau 
Special Report revealed that the major- 
ity of city departments ignored the MAP. 
Subsequently, Mayor Flynn issued a 
memo to all department heads reinforc- 
ing his 1984 Executive Order requiring 
that the MAP be actively enforced. 
Presently, 47 departments out of 62 par- 
ticipate in the MAP. Other departments 
such as Health and Hospitals, School 
and Library have established their own 
attendance programs. In the Police and 
Fire Departments, only civilian employ- 
ees participate in the MAP. 

The Personnel Division, since 1986, 
has worked to institutionalize this pro- 
gram by making it a high priority among 
departments. Personnel has held train- 
ing sessions on the MAP for all person- 
nel officers and department heads. In 
conjunction with the Data Processing 
Division, Personnel has developed a 
personal computer program for track- 
ing attendance. However, to date this 
program has not been implemented. 
Departments are required to submit at- 
tendance data on a quarterly basis. 
Presently, these reports are compiled 
manually. To help assess the uniformity 
of compliance, Personnel recently com- 
pleted an audit of departmental attend- 
ance practices. 

(Continued on next page) 



Managing Attendance . . . 

(Continued from previous page) 

According to Personnel, within the 47 
participating departments, the average 
days absent is expected to decrease 
from 11.9 days in 1 986 to 1 0.0 days in 
1987. The Bureau believes that the 
steps taken by Personnel over the past 
two years have made city departments 
more sensitive to the problem of em- 
ployee absenteeism as department 
heads become more committed to the 
MAP and training is provided to person- 
nel officers. The Bureau is unable, how- 
ever, to verify the decrease in the 
average number of sick days taken last 
year. Sick usage reports from the city's 
main computer system calculated ab- 
sences at a substantially lower rate than 
reflected by the MAP. Further, analysis 
of the average days absent revealed 
discrepancies in the compilation of the 
statistics from year to year as well as be- 
tween departments. One department, 
for example, showed a large decrease 
in the number of absent days because 
in 1986 employees using workmen's 
compensation were recorded as sick, 
but in 1 987 they were excluded from the 
sick leave statistics. This department 
subsequently was excluded from the 
annual statistics. However, it is unclear 
how many other departments have dif- 
ferent reporting procedures. 

The Personnel Division has been 
successful in getting most departments 
to focus on improving attendance 
among their employees. However, 
these efforts need to be carried further 
to improve the program's effectiveness. 
The Bureau recommends the following: 

The Director of Administrative Serv- 
ices should assist the Personnel Divi- 
sion to ensure departmental com- 
pliance of the city's MAP and to broker 
inter-agency disputes regarding its im- 
plementation. Currently, central lines of 
responsibility are unclear and depart- 
mental compliance is uneven. With his 
support, Personnel could be held ac- 
countable for the overall administration 
of the MAP. As administrator, Personnel 
should address the following four rec- 
ommendations: 

Personnel should rely exclusively on 
its Personnel/Payroll system for moni- 
toring and reporting sick leave usage. 
This recommendation was originally 
made by the Bureau in 1978 and again 
in 1986. Utilizing the Personnel/Payroll 
system would ensure central control, 
provide consistent information among 



departments and reduce tedious paper 
work. Discrepancies between the man- 
ual and automated systems have re- 
sulted in departments relying on their 
own manual system, which contributes 
to the lack of uniformity and centraliza- 
tion. The Personnel/Payroll system is 
the appropriate vehicle to report sick 
usage for the MAP. On each payroll, 
sick hours for each city employee are 
recorded and verified by the depart- 
ment head and then posted to the city's 
personnel master file. Historical attend- 
ance data, by individual employee and 
department, is available to Personnel 
for central reporting purposes. The city 
should reconsider implementation of 
the personal computer program in each 
department in favor of enhancing its in- 
tegrated payroll system to accommo- 
date MAP objectives. The long-term 
solution should be the development of a 
calendar-based MAP as part of the Per- 
sonnel/Payroll system. 

Personnel should establish a proce- 
dures manual for uniform administra- 
tion of the MAP. This would help ensure 
accurate and consistent record keeping 
among all departments. 

To maintain central control, Person- 
nel should require all city-funded de- 
partments to submit summary sick 
leave usage data on a periodic basis. 
Currently, departments such as Health 
and Hospitals, School, Library, City 
Council and some Suffolk County de- 
partments have established alternative

Zangezi 

A play by Velimir Khlebnikov, directed 
by Peter Sellars, with original music by 
Jon Hassell. Wednesday, Thursday, 
and Friday, March 2-4, at 8 p.m. Remis 
Auditorium. 

Khlebnikov, who died in Russia in 
1922 at the age of thirty-six, was one of 
the great innovators of literary modern- 
ism, along with Joyce, Pound, and 
Stein, although he is less known in the 
West because his startlingly original po- 
etry has long been thought untranslat- 
able. Now, Paul Schmidt has translated 
for the first time the poem-play Zangezi, 
a rendition hailed by Susan Sontag as 
"dazzling — an important, unexpected 
gift," giving us access to the harmoni- 
ous vision of the self-dubbed "King of 



Time." In Zangezi, which premiered at 
the opening of the Museum of Contem- 
porary Art in Los Angeles, Khlebnikov 
builds a structure of words and sounds 
that speak of his transcendent faith in 
the human spirit. Zangezi was per- 
formed at this year's Next Wave Festival 
at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and 
here has its New England premiere. 
Presented with support from the Mas- 
sachusetts Council on the Arts and Hu- 
manities. Tickets: $8, Museum

pher, assigns fictional relationships to

examination of issues of sexual and 
personal identity. 90 minutes. Thurs- 
day, March 10, at 5:30 p.m. 

Film About a Woman Who... (1974). 
Dance, performance, and film combine

amining the opposition of emotional life 
to the experiences of everyday life. 1 05 



minutes. Thursday, March 10, at 8 p.m. 

Yvonne Rainer will appear in person 
to introduce a screening of The Man 
Who Envied Women (1985). With Wil- 
liam Raymond, Trisha Brown. Around 
the familiar theme of the break-up of a

graceful, and wickedly funny account of 
a self-satisfied womanizer and explores 
the issues of sexuality, aging, power re- 
lations, and political activism. Program 
approximately 2-3/4 hours. Friday, 
March 1 1 , at 7 p.m. 

Kristina Talking Pictures (1976). With 
Ivan and Yvonne Rainer. A young Euro-

then diverges from a strict narrative, by 
intercutting dialogue based on works by 
Samuel Beckett, Simone de Beauvoir, 
John Cage, and Susan Sontag with 
segments of choreographed move- 
ment, printed words, photographs, and 
film fragments. 90 minutes. Thursday, 
March 17, at 5:30 p.m. 

Journeys from Berlin/1971 (1980). 
With Anette Michelson. Rainer's theme 
is the dichotomy of public and private

tion of the Baader-Meinhof group in 
Germany to illustrate the private and so- 
cial implications of violence. 125 min- 
utes. Thursday, March 17, at 8 p.m. and

MORNING SUBSCRIPTION LECTURE 

SERIES 

MARCH 1988 

An Introduction to Women's Cos- 
tume, 1 725-1 925, Nancy Rexford, Tues- 
days, March 29-April 19, at 10:30 a.m., 
Mabel Louise Riley Seminar Room. 

Fashionable female dress plays a 
complex role in Western culture. 
Among its functions are to provide de- 
cency and warmth, to reflect the posi- 
tion of women as a group, and to act as a 
specific social identifier, telling us the 
wearer's wealth, status or even her 
opinions. But it also expresses in a most 
personal way the aesthetic of its age. 



This series outlines the evolution of 
women's fashion from 1 725 to 1 925 and 
suggests some of the ways it related to 
contemporary ideas in culture and art. 

Nancy Rexford is a museum consult- 
ant on costume, and is currently writing 
a book on dating American women's 
clothing, 1795-1930. 

SUBSCRIPTION: $30, Museum 
members, students, senior citizens;

Preserving Historic New Bedford in a 
Changing Economy, Therese S. Kelly, 
director, Waterfront Historic Area 
League, Friday, March 18, at 10:30 a.m. 
in Remis Auditorium. 

Much of New Bedford's historic char- 
acter — its waterfront district, its fishing 
industry, and its textile mills — remains ; 
intact and in use today. But a changing 
and growing economy continues to ex- 
ert pressure on those valuable historic ! 
resources. This lecture will highlight 
those resources and consider how a 
community can protect its legacy while 
adapting to the demands of the late 
twentieth century.

Discovering Greek Sculpture 
Miranda Marvin, professorof art history 
Wellesley College, Thursdays, Marcr 
31 -April 21, at 8 p.m., Mabel Louistj 
Riley Seminar Room. 

The classical tradition has dominatec 
Western sculpture since it was initiated 
by Greek artists 2500 years ago. Thia 
series will trace its origin and develop! 
ment, emphasizing how the unique ap 
proach of Greek sculptors to tht 
rendering of forms in space changed 
over time. Among the issues to be com 
sidered are public and private patron 
age, the function of works of art in 
ancient society, and the interaction be 
tween sculpture and architecture. Wha 



844 



can really be known of the great mas- 
ters Polykleitos, Pheidias, and Lysip- 
pos? Who were the tastemakers of the 
classical world? How has our knowl- 
edge of Greek art colored our under- 
standing of Greek society? These are 
some of the questions to be explored, 
even if they cannot be fully answered.

Town Views in Dutch Landscapes: A 
Sense of Pride, A Sense of Place, 
James A. Welu, director, Worcester Art 
Museum, Wednesday, March 9, at 8 
p.m. in Remis Auditorium. 

During the seventeenth century the 
town view became a popular motif in 
paintings of the Dutch landscape. This 
lecture will explore the topographical 
tradition behind this motif including its 
relationship to concurrent develop- 
ments in cartography, and in connec- 
tion with social and political changes of 
the period. 

Looking Up: Sky and Land in Dutch 
-andscape, John Walsh, director, J. 
Paul Getty Museum, Wednesday, 
Vlarch 23, at 8 p.m. in Remis Audito- 
rium. 

Dutch landscape painters were the 
'irst to exploit the variety and beauty of 
:he skies, yet their achievement has not 
oeen fully understood or credited. John 
Walsh will consider what goes on above 
he horizon and what it contributes to 
:he paintings.

3ty Wednesday, March 16, at 8 p.m. in 
^emis Auditorium. 

In recent years, performances on 
original instruments, employing histori- 
cally appropriate techniques, have 
changed our understanding of baroque 
and classical music. Christopher Hog- 
A/ood, founder of the world-renowned 
Academy of Ancient Music, will discuss 
what makes a performance "authen- 
ic." Daniel Stepner, baroque violinist, 
will illustrate various points on historic 
md on modern instruments.

SPECIAL SATURDAY PROGRAM 
MARCH 1988 

What Do We Mean by "Master- 
pierce"? Saturday, March 19, 10a.m. -5 
p.m., Remis Auditorium. 

The word masterpiece evokes in us 
the sense that there are works of art, lit- 
erature, or music, whose value is uni- 
versal and timeless. They stand in the 
general understanding as authoritative 
exemplars, lying beyond the reach of 
personal opinion or the vagaries of 
taste. But a more critical view of the 
term would demonstrate that defini- 
tions of supreme mastery, as well as the 
works of art that have been called mas- 
terpieces, have changed over time and 
are by no means accepted as such by 



all. This program will explore from dif- 
ferent perspectives some aspects of the 
sense and implications of the master- 
piece. 

This program will be moderated by 
Walter Cahn, Carnegie Professor of the 
History of Art, Yale University, and au- 
thor of Masterpiece: Chapters on the 
History of an Idea. Speakers include: 
Arthur C. Danto, Johnsonian Professor 
of Philosophy, Columbia University; 
John Pope Hennessey, professor of fine 
arts, Institute of Fine Arts, New York 
University; Sherman E. Lee, adjunct 
professor, Department of Art, University 
of North Carolina; Marcia Tucker, direc- 
tor, The New Museum of Contemporary 
Art, New York, and Cornelius Vermeule, 
curator of classical art, MFA. 

TICKETS: $40, MFA members, sen- 
iors, students; $50, general admission. 
To order tickets, send request, check 
payable to the Museum of Fine Arts, 
and a stamped self-addressed enve- 
lope to Public Programs, Museum of 
Fine Arts, Boston, MA 02215.

DUTCH LANDSCAPE ON PAPER: REM- 
BRANDT TO MONDRIAN 
DECEMBER 19-M ID-APRIL 

Changing conceptions and continui- 
ties in the Dutch vision of landscape are 
traced in eighty landscape prints, draw- 
ings, and watercolors from around 1 600 
to the early twentieth century. A gener- 
ous selection of fine landscape prints, 
primarily etchings, is complemented by 
sensitive landscape drawings and wa- 
tercolors. Drawn primarily from the Mu- 
seum's collection — including a 
number of recent acquisitions — the ex- 
hibition in the Huntington Print, Draw- 
ing, and Photograph Galleries features 
quintessential works by such artists as 
Goltzius, Segers, Rembrandt, 
Jongkind, van Gogh, and Mondrian, as 
well as works by lesser-known Dutch 
masters equally deserving of attention. 
Although independently conceived, the 
exhibition is also intended as a comple- 
ment to "Masters of Seventeenth- 
Century Dutch Landscape Painting" on 
view from February 3 to May 1 , 1 988. 
MASSACHUSETTS MASTERS: AFRO- 
AMERICAN ARTISTS 
JANUARY 16-MARCH 6 

Lois Mailou Jones, Ellen Banks, Allan 
Rohan Crite, and Calvin Burnett are 
among twenty-five contemporary Black 
artists whose work will be on view in the 
Foster Gallery. According to exhibition 
curator and director of the Museum of 
the National Center for Afro-American 
Artists Edmund Barry Gaither, the exhi- 
bition will feature "artists working in 
various idioms and styles who have en- 
joyed long careers in the state as well as 
a broad cross section of contemporary 
artists whose work has been recog- 
nized within the last fifteen years. 



"While most of the sixty-three paint- 
ings, tapestries, and sculptures on ex- 
hibition were completed since 1973, a 
number of pieces date from the 1 930s. 

Many of the artists have strong ties to 
the Museum School: Lois Mailou Jones 
graduated in 1927, and Allan Rohan 
Crite in 1 933, and both Ellen Banks and 
Milton Derr are currently on the faculty 
at the School. "In the nineteenth cen- 
tury," notes Gaither, "the liberal envi- 
ronment of Massachusetts provided 
rich support for several Afro-American 
artists from other regions. With the 
opening of the Museum School in 1876, 
the opportunity to study art in formal 
surroundings became available in Mas- 
sachusetts." 

MASTERS OF SEVENTEENTH-CEN- 
TURY DUTCH LANDSCAPE PAINTING 
FEBRUARY 3-MAY 1 

The first exhibition in more than 
thirty-five years to survey the full range 
of seventeenth-century Dutch land- 
scape painting attests to the Dutch- 
man's adoring record of his 
surroundings. Pioneers of the naturalis- 
tic landscape, Dutch artists were in- 
spired by a seemingly unpromising little 
subject, namely their own flat, watery 
country, but created images of unprece- 
dented richness and diversity — blonde 
dunes, limitless panoramas, and bosky 
forests. They painted Holland's regular 
canals and broad plain as well as subtle 
effects of season and weather — the 
moist Dutch air, the stillness at evening, 
and the hoarfrost of winter. Great trav- 
elers, the Dutch also lent form to the 
plunging valleys of the Rhine, the cliffsj 
and cataracts of Tirol and Scandinavia, 
the sunny Italian Campagna, even the 
emerald vistas of Brazil. 

Not only the Dutchman's varied and 
encyclopedic vision, but also the selec- 
tiveness and subjectivity of his natural- 
ism emerge through this show. Most 
conspicuous in the lunar fantasies o! ! 
Hercules Segers, the creative aspect of 
Dutch realism is also revealed in the 
subtler reshufflings of nature per- 
formed by artists like Jan van Goyen oi 
Salomon van Ruysdael, who did no 
hesitate to reroute a river or relocate £ 
church spire to achieve a compelling 
truth to life and ever more inventive ef 
fects of light and atmosphere. Review 
ing the entire century with loans frorr 
forty of the world's most distinguishec 
museums and a score of leading privatf 
collectors, the exhibition highlight; 



846 



masterpieces by such artists as Hen- 
drick Avercamp, Aelbert Cuyp, Jacob 
Ruisdael, and Meindert Hobbema, 
while revealing the merits and contribu- 
tions of many artists of lesser renown. 

The 560-page catalogue illustrates 
all 123 paintings in the exhibition in 
color and provides more than 400 
black-and-white comparative illustra- 
tions. In addition to charting stylistic 
development and the changing favor of 
specific subjects and themes, the cata- 
logue examines the relationship be- 
tween the rise of landscape painting 
and such factors as the Dutchman's 
pride in his own newly won national in- 
dependence; Holland's commercial 
success and global reach in her 
"Golden Age"; the country's extensive 
land-reclamation projects and commit- 
ment to geographic engineering; and 
the growing popularity of pastoral po- 
etry and other literary forms, such as 
the indigenous Hofdicht, that celebrate 
the beauty of the local scene and coun- 
tryside. Also investigated are the roles 
of patronage and landscape's place in 
the marketplace, as well as questions of 
"hidden symbolism." Born of sixteenth- 
century religious allegorical, and myth- 
ological paintings, landscapes 
acquired new forms and meanings in 
the seventeenth century as the audi- 
ence for this popular art form broad- 
ened. 

The exhibition was organized by the 
Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, with the 
collaboration of the Rijksmuseum and 
the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The 
exhibition and catalogue are supported 
by grants from the National Endowment 
for the Arts, a federal agency, and the 
Algemene Bank Nederland N.V. Addi- 
tional support for the exhibition is pro- 
vided by an indemnity from the Federal 
Council on the Arts and Humanities and 
by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines. The cata- 
logue is made possible in part by grants 
from Coopers & Lybrand; Dutch Institu- 
tional Holding Company; and Nutter, 
McClennen & Fish in association with 
Nederlands-American Amity Trust. 

JOHN LA FARGE February 24 - May 
1, 1988 

The retrospective of the work of John 
La Farge opening at the Museum of 
Fine Arts on February 24, 1988, ex- 
plores the work of this immensely influ- 
ential nineteenth-century American 
artist and presents over 100 paintings, 
graphics and stained glass. A brilliant 
mural and easel painter, designer and 



colorist, La Farge was a master at fus- 
ing the decorative arts with architec- 
ture. As a portraitist, engraver and 
illustrator, landscape and still life 
painter, his dedication to the function of 
the artist as craftsman led him to ex- 
plore a variety of subjects and media. 
He was instrumental in reviving the arts 
of American monumental mural paint- 
ing and stained glass, the medium in 
which he made his most enduring con- 
tribution by developing a technique in 
which the glass itself is used to create 
pictorial effects. According to Lauretta 
Dimmick, Assistant Curator who is 
working on the installation at the Mu- 
seum of Fine Arts, La Farge often was a 
step ahead of his continental counter- 
parts although not trained in Europe. 
He collected Japanese prints before 
James McNeill Whistler, created im- 
pressionistic landscapes before the 
first impressionist exhibition, and 
painted in Tahiti a year before Paul 
Gauguin. He revived such neglected art 
forms as stained glass and mural deco- 
ration. Yet his formal and technical inno- 
vations are frequently linked to a 
conservative figural style and he cannot 
be accurately described as a modern- 
ist. La Farge presents the paradox of an 
innovator who was wedded to the con- 
servative strain in Victorian American 
culture. Only recently have scholars be- 
gun to re-evaluate La Farge and to see 
him as one of the central figures of nine- 
teenth-century art. In the 1870s, as the 
artist was beginning to gain recognition 
for his easel paintings, La Farge turned 
to decorative work. His first major com- 
mission was the interior of architect H.H 
Richardson's Trinity Church in Boston. 
This mural project, the first large-scale 
decorative scheme in America to be ex- 
ecuted by a distinguished painter, set a 
new direction in American art and initi- 
ated the movement now known as 
American Renaissance. La Farge is 
generally acknowledged to be the 
greatest innovator in the history of mod- 
ern stained glass. In addition to his 
technical innovations, La Farge ex- 
panded the traditional subject matter of 
stained glass. A comprehensively illus- 
trated book accompanies the exhibition 
and includes essays by leading La 
Farge scholars. John La Farge was or- 
ganized jointly by The Carnegie Mu- 
seum of Art and the National Museum of 
American Art, Smithsonian Institution, 
with the generous support of grants 
from The Luce Fund for Scholarship in 



American Art, a program of The Henry 
Luce Foundation, Inc., the National En- 
dowment for the Humanities, The Fos- 
ter Charitable Trust, the Smithsonian 
Special Exhibition Fund, and the James 
Smithsonian Society. Following the ex- 
hibition's premiere at the National Mu- 
seum of American Art (July 1 - October 
12, 1987), the exhibition will travel to 
The Carnegie Museum of Art in Pitts- 
burgh (November 7, 1987 - January 3, 
1988) and conclude its tour at the Mu- 
seum of Fine Arts, Boston. 

UNFOLDING BEAUTY: THE ART OF 
THE FAN, March 9 -June 5,1988. 

The beauty and romance of fans will 
be highlighted in the Western fans and 
costumes from the permanent collec- 
tion of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston 
shown in Unfolding Beauty: The Art of 
the Fan. According to Deborah Kraak, 
Assistant Curator in the Department of 
Textiles and Costumes, "Ninety fans 
and twenty costumed mannequins in 
the exhibition will illustrate the chang- 
ing styles of the fan from the eighteenth 
to the twentienth century. The chrono- 
logical survey will be complemented by 
a display of fans from different eras 
grouped according to specific themes: 
the Grand Tour, political fans, chinoise- 
rie, and ballooning." Specialty fans cre- 
ated by ingenious designers who 
transformed the fans into party games, 
lorgnettes, and parasols will be well rep- 
resented in the exhibition. Selected 
fans will be accompanied by works of 
European and American decorative 
arts, costume accessories and fashion 
plates, and classical figurines that re- 
late to the fans' subject matter and de- 
sign. Portraits and prints containing 
fans will also be on view. The costumed 
mannequins will reveal the fan as a vir- 
tually indispensible fashion accessory 
for both women and men. The exhibi- 
tion will display the richness and variety 
of materials used in manufacture of 
these luxurious accessories. Ivory from 
India or Africa, mother-of-pearl from 
Madagascar, Australia and Sumatra, 
tortoiseshell from Borneo, Bali and 
Guinea were imported to Europe and 
transformed into sticks to support the 
coloful fan leaves. A variety of tech- 
niques were used to decorate the mini- 
ture "canvases," often with adaptations 
of paintings by famous artists such as 
Velasquez and Watteau. Fan leaves 
painted in watercolors or oils will be 
shown along with handtinted prints and 
illustrations rendered in the more un- 



847 



usual media of appliqued straw, fabric 
and sequins. Rare fan types such as 
cabriolet fans, seldom found in a collec- 
tion, are characterized by widely 
spaced spokes and a reinforcing rim 
and are named for their structural simi- 
larity of the wheels of a popular eight- 
eenth-century carriage. The Museum of 
Fine Arts has five, including a beautiful 
"double" cabriolet whose finely 
painted medallions resemble the re- 
serves on Meissen porcelain. The Mu- 
seum's collection is particularly rich in 
nineteenth-century fans manufactured 
by the Hunt Allen fan company of Wey- 
mouth Landing, Massachusetts, pro- 
ducer of the beautiful Luna Moth fan. 
The fans in Unfolding Beauty: The Art of 
the Fan were selected from the Muse- 
um's collection of 648 fans, 424 of 
which were the gift of a single donor: the 
late Miss Esther Oldham of Wellesley, 
Massachusetts, who gave her world-fa- 
mous collection to the Museum in 1 976. 
A catalogue, prepared in conjunction 
with the exhibition and written by Anna 
G. Bennett, will illustrate 145 fans with 
33 in color, and contain a biographical 
sketch of MissOldham and essays enti- 
tled "The Fan in Social History" and 
"An Almost Incredible Commerce." Re- 
search for thecatalogue is supported in 
part by a grant from the National En- 
dowment for the Arts. The Museum is 
also organizing an international sympo- 
sium of fans to be held in the Remis Au- 
ditorium on April 8, 1988.

BOSTON NEIGHBORHOODS TO GET NEW HOUSING 



The Public Facilities Department (PFD) of the City of Boston recently 
completed its selection of developers for the first of the vacant buildable lots 
(over 3,500 square feet) to be offered as part of Project 747. This ambitious 
project aims to turn all of the city's vacant buildable lots into attractive quality 
housing for the people of Boston. Six packages of three to five lots each, lo- 
cated in Dorchester and Mattapan, were included in this first round. They 
were awarded to Bilt-Rite Construction and Boston Modular Homes, both of 
Dorchester; Consalvo and Sons of Hyde Park; and T. Owen Trainer Associ- 
ates of Quincy. 

"Project 747 will be the source of much of the future affordable housing for 
Boston's residents," said Lisa G. Chapnick, director of PFD. "We encourage 
architects and developers to participate in this venture by responding to our 
next Request for Proposals, which will be issued at the end of the month." 
The guidelines of Project 747 re- contractual agreement with the city, 



quire that a licensed contractor be 
oart of the development team. Three 
of the four developers selected for 
he six packages are contractors 
hemselves. Bilt-Rite will be building 
hree, three-family homes on 
Mthington, Milton, and Mora Streets 
n the Codman Square area of Dor- 
fester. Each unit will sell for 
583,000. Consalvo and Sons, cur- 
ently involved in housing projects in 
Hyde Park, Roslindale, and Dorches- 
er, have slated two, six-family 
louses for the vacant land on Green- 
dale and Westmore Roads in Matta- 
(Dan. The twelve units will sell for 
585,000 each. 

Six lots in the Fields Corner sec- 
ion of Dorchester were sold for $1 to 
frainor Associates, who will be work- 
ng with Harnais Construction of 
Quincy. Five lots in the Franklin Field 
irea went to Boston Modular, who 
tlso acts as a distributor of manufac- 
ured housing. Both developers will 
)e putting three-family homes on the 
and. The fifteen Boston Modular 
mits on Callender, Floyd, and Mas- 
ot Streets, and Woodrow Avenue in 
"ranklin Field will each sell for 
;82,000. The eighteen Trainor units 
pn Hancock, Quincy, Olney and 
iarry Streets and Mt. Bowdoin Ter- 
ace in Fields Corner will sell for 
85,000 each. 

The below-market selling price of 
ach unit is guaranteed. Under the 



developers assume responsibility for 
any unforeseen costs that might ex- 
ceed the selling price of the units. 
The units will be marketed by the 
city through a local nonprofit organi- 
zation. The city has also submitted 
an application to the state's Home- 
ownership Opportunity Program, 
which would make it possible for eli- 
gible, first-time home buyers to re- 
ceive low-interest mortgages. 

Developers were selected based 
on the quality of design, the price of 
the units, and the capacity of the 
builders to deliver. Another basis for 
selection is the compatibility of the 
housing design with the architectural 
styles of the existing neighborhood. 
All of the selected developers will be 
building innovative designs of the 
predominant triple decker for the 
most efficient use of the small lots. 

The developers expect to break 
ground in May or June and to have 
units ready for occupancy before the 
end of the year. 

MBTA INTRODUCES RED LINE 
CARS INTO SERVICE 

State Transportation Secretary Fre- 
derick P. Salvucci and MBTA General 
Manager James F. O'Leary have an- 
nounced that the first six of fifty- 
eight, new, rapid transit cars have 
been put into service on the MBTA's 
Red Line. The complete $56.8 million 



order will be in service by the end of 
the summer. 

Salvucci said, "These cars will 
play an important role in improving 
service for the Red Line's 180,000 
daily passengers, and along with the 
other MBTA projects, will help keep 
our highways moving by increasing 
the use of public transportation." 

O'Leary said, "The arrival of these 
cars is a major component of the 
MBTA's ongoing Red Line moderniza- 
tion and improvement program. The 
cars will help relieve overcrowding 
on the Red Line and will improve the 
reliability of the line's operation." 

The new cars, similar in outside 
appearance to the existing Red Line 
fleet, are manufactured by Urban 
Transportation Development Corpora- 
tion of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Can- 
ada, and assembled by General 
Electric Company in Mansfield, Mas- 
sachusetts. 

The new cars are compatible in 
operation to the existing Red Line 
fleet, and feature enhanced propul- 
sion and motor design, state-of-the- 
art cab signal systems, improved 
door systems, and air conditioning. 
The car is nearly 70 feet long, 
weighs 71,200 pounds, and seats 63. 

In addition to the new cars, other 
programs in the $205.8 million Red 
Line modernization effort, include: 

• rebuilding of seventy-four older 
"Silverbird" cars ($38.2 million); 

• complete rehabilitation of track, 
power, and signal systems between 
Harvard and JFK/UMASS stations 
($32.3 million); 

• reconstruction of JFK/UMASS 
station, including the addition of plat- 
forms to service Braintree trains 
($13.5 million); and 

• modernization and platform 
lengthening at seven Red Line sta- 
tions, to allow the operation of six- 
car trains ($65 million). 

This will increase peak-period ca- 
pacity by 50 percent.

MAYOR OF BOSTON 



OFFICIAL CHRONICLE, MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS 



CHRISTOPHER A. IANNELLA 

PRESIDENT, CITY COUNCIL 



VOL. 80 



MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 1988 



NO. 5 



MAYOR FLYNN CITES INFANT MORTALITY PROBLEM 



In testimony on behalf of the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM), before 
the House Banking Subcommittee on Housing and Community Development 
on January 26, Boston Mayor Raymond L. Flynn called for "substantial in- 
creases in federal nutrition programs to aid pregnant women, infants and 
children to address the shocking and unconscionable levels of infant mortality 
and low-birthweight babies in U.S. cities." 

The Mayor's remarks on infant mortality, made in response to a report is- 
sued recently by the Children's Defense Fund in Washington, D.C., were of- 
fered in addition to his prepared testimony on the problem of homelessness 
in cities throughout the nation. 



In his role as chair of the USCM 
Task Force on Hunger and Home- 
lessness, the Mayor reported on a 
recent survey of U.S. cities which re- 
vealed a 21 percent increase in 
homelessness and an 18 percent in- 
crease in demand for emergency 
food assistance between 1986 and 
1987. Mayor Flynn reiterated his re- 
marks later in a meeting with Rep. 
Leon Panetta, chairman of the House 
Agriculture Subcommittee on Nutri- 
tion. 

Responding to the CDF study, he 
said further: "I find it absolutely in- 
edible, in a nation as wealthy and 
Dowerful as the United States, that 
/ve have babies dying in our cities at 
ates which exceed those of some of 
he smallest and poorest nations in 
he world. The fact that our nation's 
progress in reducing infant mortality 
las come to an abrupt halt in recent 
/ears can be directly linked to cuts 
n prenatal and postnatal health care 
ind in desperately needed nutrition 
)rograms such as Food Stamps and 
VIC. The health and nutrition prob- 
ems of poor women and their chil- 
Iren are only compounded by 
lomelessness and high costs of 
lousing which often forces the 
hoice between paying rent and 
eeding children. 

To have listened to the President 
peak on January 25, one would 
hink that all Americans are sharing 
i the benefits of our alleged eco- 
iomic prosperity, The Children's De- 
snse Fund report points out clearly 



that many Americans — indeed the 
neediest and most vulnerable of our 
citizens — are not prospering at all. 
It seems to me, that rather than 
wanting to wage war in Central 
America, the President and the fed- 
eral government would do better to 
wage war on infant mortality and the 
problems which contribute to its inci- 
dence. 

In Boston, as in other cities, the 
data on infant mortality, particularly 
in the minority community, points to 
a very serious problem. We have im- 
plemented the "Healthy Baby" Pro- 
gram to reach at-risk pregnant 
women through our neighborhood 
health centers and hospital-based 
obstetrics programs. Unfortunately, 
the 1985 data which CDF used for 
Boston precedes the implementation 
of the Healthy Baby Program. We ex- 
pect to see improvement in lowering 
Boston's infant mortality rate when 
the data for 1986 and 1987 are ana- 
lyzed." The Mayor said that another 
program, the "Healthy Child" Pro- 
gram, would begin next month as a 
postnatal follow-up program for 
women and children identified 
through the Healthy Baby Program. 
"Healthy Child" would follow the pro- 
gress of children for two years. 

In characterizing the infant mortal- 
ity problem, Mayor Flynn said: "A 
key to the problem is the fact that 
many families lack health insurance 
of any kind. Our Healthy Baby Out- 
reach Program has identified that at 
least 45 percent of families screened 



have no health insurance. We cannot 
expect to make major improvements 
in the health of people unless the ac- 
cess to health care is available. In 
addition, we need the federal govern- 
ment to expand significantly the 
funding for Food Stamps, WIC, 
school meals program, and surplus 
food distribution programs.

hours January 10, 1 988, for violation of Rule 21 .1 0. 
IX. HIGH COMMENDATIONS 

At 2321 hours, November 14, 1987, Incident No. 
44320, the Fire Alarm Office stilled Rescue Com- 
pany 1 to 100 Federal Street, a high-rise building 
known as the First National Bank Building in District 
3. 

Rescue Company 1 found an unusual situation at 
this building. Two men were working in a utility 
shaft, 20 ft. x 20 ft. This shaft runs about twenty 
floors and contains many of the building's utility 
services. The workers were repairing some equip- 
ment in the shaft by means of a motorized electri- 
cally operated bucket attached to two guide wires. 
The apparatus malfunctioned trapping the two men 



between the fifth and eighth floors. Access doors 
about 2 ft. x 2 ft. are provided in the stairwell every 
few floors. Members of Rescue Company 1 opened 
an access door on floor 8. Lieutenant John F. Joyce, 
Fire Fighter Edward T. Loder and Fire Fighter Paul 
G. Carey of Rescue Company 1 entered the shaft. 
Using proper procedures, Lieutenant Joyce de- 
cided that it would be necessary to rappel members 
into the shaft as the only method for the resuce of 
the workers. By means of friction devices and "D" 
rings attached to rappelling ropes, Fire Fighter Lo- 
der and Fire Fighter Carey descended into the shaft 
and each picked up a worker by attaching a life line 
to the fire fighters D ring and sliding down to a safe 
area at the fourth-floor level. 

Fire Lieutenant Joyce had entered the shaft, and 
by means outlined above, lowered himself so that 
he could direct operations, see that safe proce- 
dures were undertaken and to retrieve the depart- 
ment's equipment. He was available for any 
eventuality that might be encountered. 

Fire Fighter Richard R. Parker and Fire Fighter 
William T. Connors, Rescue Compay 1 , were an es-

CONTRACTS AWARDED 
WITHOUT ADVERTISING 

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

CABLE COMMUNICATIONS 

Television Production Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

In response to an advertisement published in tt 
City Record of August 17, 1987, requesting pr< 
posals for television production services related 
this office's Gateway Cities project, the followir 
bids were publicly opened and read on August 3 
1987: 

Steve Abbott, Somerville, $37,000; DU-AL Pr 
ductions, Charlestown, $41,000; Appropriate M 
dia Services, Boston, $42,480. 

After carefully reviewing all proposals and cc 
ducting interviews with all bidders, including mu 
pie interview with two finalists, the Office of Cat 
Communications has concluded that the City 
Boston will be best served by awarding this contrs 
to Appropriate Media Services. 

Considering all services included in the AMS t 
that were included in no other (e.g., hiring and p; 
ment of native on-camera talent, as well as deliv« 
of seventy copies of the finished, half-inch vers! 
of the tapes in each of the three specified I; 
guages), the AMS bid was in fact the lowest bid 
ceived. Moreover. AMS already has had extens 
experience with agencies of Boston city gove 
ment, as well as with Boston's Chinese commun 
one of our target audiences. Finally, we were v 
favorably impressed by a series of promotional \ 
eos AMS has produced for Yale University. 

Therefore, because of the range and quality 
services that AMS can provide and the reasona 
cost of these services, I respectfully request y 
permission to reject all bids and to award this c 
tract, without public advertising, to Appropriate I 
dia Services, Inc. for an amount not to exci 
$42,480 for the period October 15, 1987, thro. 
June 30, 1988. 

This request is being processed late due to r 
sions requested by the Law Department and a £ 
sequent notification delay by the Cont: 
Management Office.

PUBLIC FACILITIES 
Energy Management Services 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities Com- 
mission on November 5, 1987, I respectfully re- 
quest your Honor's written permission to dispense 
with public advertisement and award a contract to 
Francis O'Brien & Associates, Inc., a Massachu- 
setts coroporation, with offices at 41 Mendum 
Street, Boston, providing professional services for 
collecting and processing of energy use and cost 
information for all city-operated, non-school build- 
ings Scope of work will consist of twelve reports at 
a rate of $1 ,667 per report. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $20,000, which I have determined to be a rea- 
sonable cost for the work to be performed . The term 
of this contract shall be from December 1, 1987, 
through June 30, 1988. 

Francis O'Brien & Associates, Inc. is uniquely 
qualified to provide this service due to prior long- 
term involvement in city building, planning and op- 
eration since the late 1950's. They have made a 
substantial contribution towards improved energy 
management in the city, in the public schools and 
have developed and implemented computer-based 
energy management information systems for the 
city, in particular, the monitoring/reporting system 
they developed with the Public Facilities Depart- 
ment. The system was developed on a FY 80/84 
base and they have produced monthly reports 
since through the end of FY'87. 

I believe Francis O'Brien & Associates, Inc. is 
qualified to perform the services required. 

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

Sincerely, 

LisaG. Chapnick, 
Director. 

Emergency Removal of Asbestos Material 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

On June 26, 1987, the Public facilities Depart- 
ment was notified of an emergency situation in the 
Mattapan Hospital Laundry involving loose and fall- 
ing asbestos material . On July 1 7, 1 987, our depart- 



ment was also notified of similar emergencies 
South Boston gymnasium and Dorchester Cou 
House involving asbestos. 

Because of the threat to health and safety of th 
employees and public users of the City of Boston 
have requested and received approval from th 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts Division of Cap 
tal Planning and Operations to dispense with mee 
ing the requirements of Massachusetts Gener 
Laws chapter 149, section 44A as it pertains to pu! 
lie advertising, and to include all three locations u 
der the same emergency contract. 

At noon on Friday, July 31,1 987, the Public Fac 
ities Department requested and received bids fro 
four reputable contractors normally engaged in th 
type of work. The results were as follows: 

American Environmental Services, bid $15,96 
National Surface Cleaning, Inc., bid $41,00 
Northern Asbestos Abatement Co., bid $45, 6C 
Walton Systems International, Inc., bid $54,719 

The bid of American Environmental Services 
the lowest eligible and responsible general bid 
this project and is within the range of our estim? 
for the cost of this work. It is my opinion that the o 
is reasonable. 

Your Honor's written authorization is request 
in awarding a contract to American Environmen 
Services of Braintree, in an amount not to exce 
$15,988. This contract was unavoidably delay 
due to lengthy vendor review. 

Sincerely,

are Victoria House; South Boston Neighbor

BOSTON WORKS SMARTER AWARDS CEREMONY 



Mayor Raymond L. Flynn presented awards to twelve city employees at a 
City Hall ceremony honoring them for their participation in Boston's Works 
Smarter first-round competition. The twelve employees developed ideas on 
improving morale and job performance that were selected for funding through 
the Works Smarter Program. 

Mayor Flynn said, "The commitment and dedication of these workers is 
largely responsible for Boston being a world class city. They care a great 
deal about being able to do their jobs in the most effective and efficient way. 
The Works Smarter Program is an innovative tool for assisting them in that 
effort. 



"We have been so pleased by the 
suggestions submitted through Works 
Smarter that a second round compe- 
tition began on January 29," Flynn 
added. 

"This is the first time ever that this 
:ype of employee incentive program 
nas been offered to the city's work- 
srs and the response by the employ- 
ees has been very positive;" said 
Drograms coordinator Darrell CrOCk- 
Jtt.

PASSENGER SAFETY WEEK 

February 7-13 is dedicated for the 
safety of child passengers. 

The leading cause of child death can 
be eliminated in a snap — so buckle 
them up. 

The proper use of seat belts and child 
car-seats can reduce death and injuries 
by more than 50 percent. 

Just properly securing your children 
will help save their lives in the event of a 
motor vehicle accident. 

Massachusetts law requires all chil- 
dren, twelve years and under, to be fas- 
tened in a safety belt or a child car-seat 
when riding in a motor vehicle. 

You can be fined $25 for every child, 
twelve years and under, not fastened in 
a safety belt or a car-seat.

missioner Richard A. Dimino. 



ABCD ISSUES HYPOTHERMIA 
ALERT 

As the frigidly cold, late winter 
months descend upon us the threat by 
hypothermia, or the dangerous lower- 
ing of inner body temperature, be- 
comes an increasingly real threat to the 
very young and the very old. A few of the 
symptoms associated with hypother- 
mia are confusion, slow breathing, and 
violent shivering. Once thought to be 
caused by exposure to extreme cold, it 
is now believed that hypothermia can 
occur in the elderly and infants after ex- 
posure to only mild cold, even tempera- 
tures in the mid-to low-sixties. 

Recognizing the seriousness of the 
situation, Action for Boston Community 
Development (ABCD) is issuing a hypo- 
thermia alert to Boston residents. 
ABCD Executive Director, Robert M. 
Coard points out that the majority of hy- 
pothermia cases can be prevented by 
improving living conditions and recog- 
nizing its early warning signals. 

Hypothermia often goes unrecog- 
nized because the victim may be un- 
aware of the problem or may confuse 
symptoms with other conditions. How- 
ever, there are several basic hypother- 
mia warning signs which everyone can 
learn to identify: body temperature 
which registers below the normal ther- 
mometer scale (i.e. 95R); chest or abdo- 
men that is cold to touch; any kind of 
change in normal appearance or be- 
havior; and evidence that the victim has 
been in a cold or cool environment. 

The best insurance against the dan- 
gers of hypothermia is prevention. 
Warm dress, good nutrition, and regular 
exercise are all important ways of keep- 
ing warm in cold weather. In addition, 
"at-risk" individuals, particularly older 
people living by themselves, should be 
in daily contact with friends, family, and 
neighbors so that dangerous changes 
in the behavior or appearance of the 
possible victim can be detected early. It 
should be emphasized that residents 
can cut heating costs by the use of low- 
cost or no-cost energy conservation 
techniques. Financial assistance with 
heating bills is also available through 
the ABCD Fuel Assistance program. 
For more information call 357-6012. 

ABCD is Boston's antipoverty agency 
and the largest human services agency 
in New England, with funding from a va- 
riety of sources totaling over $30 million 
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 
Grandparents, Head Start, Day Care, 
Center for Jobs, Education and Career 
Training, the Summer Youth Employ- 
ment Program, a tuition-free, accred- 
ited Urban College Program 
administered in conjunction with area 
colleges and universities, Health Serv- 
ices, Community Services and others. 



TREATMENT FACILITY TO RECEIVE 
CITY FUNDS 

The Public Facilities Department 
(PFD) of the City of Boston has awarded 
a $37,500 grant to the Gavin House in 
South Boston, a twenty-five-bed resi- 
dential treatment program for drug and 
alcohol abusers, sponsored by the Arch 
Foundation. The funding, given 
through the Physical Improvements 
Program (PIP) for nonprofit organiza- 
tions, will be used for repairs to the cen-

CONTRACTS AMENDED 

The Mayor has approved the 
amending of contracts, based on 
the following information: 

HEALTH AND HOSPITALS DEPARTMENT 
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 amend the con- 
tract with Cardiac Pacemakers, Inc., Minnesota, to 
provide implantable pacemakers and related items 
to the Department of Health and Hospitals for the 
period July 1, 1986, through June 30, 1988, at a 
cost not to exceed $50,000. 

This amendment will increase the amount of the 



contract by $150,000, thereby increasing the total 
amount of the contract to an amount not to exceed 
$200,000. 

Currently Boston City Hospital implants pace- 
makers to treat bradyarrhythmias and now the hos- 
pital has been selected as a center for the 
implantation of AlCDs for the treatment of tachyar- 
rhthmias. Boston City Hospital thus becomes the 
fourth hospital in New England selected to provide 
this service. Patients who survive episodes of ven- 
tricular fibrillation or symptomatic ventricular 
tachycardia go on to have a very high rate of recur- 
rence. In over half the instances the recurrence is 
fatal. The AICD device reduces the frequency of fa- 
tal recurrences to less than 2 percent over the first 
year. Therefore this device is an absolutely remark- 
able treatment for these severely ill patients. 

The Start-Up Kit for this treatment costs $43,085. 
The cost for additional AlCDs ranges from $1 1 ,900 
to $1 3,000 each. The prices are subject to change 
without notice and there is a minimum value of $50 
per order. 

Cardiac Pacemakers, Inc., is currently the only 
company worldwide making this device. Therefore 
since no benefit would inure to the city by publicly 
advertising for bids I recommend approval of this 
amendment. 

Very truly yours, 

Lews W. Pollack, 
Commissioner.

Rory P. Melvin, Somerville, for the purpose of adju- 
dicating parking violations in the Adjudication Sec- 
tion of the Office of the Parking Clerk during the 
period July 1 , 1 987, to June 30, 1 988, at a cost not to

tract to provide for an increase in the hourly wage

Primary Care Center 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 
Dublic advertising and award a contract to Trustees 
,3f Boston University, acting by the Boston Univer- 
sity School of Medicine, 80 East Concord Street, to

2are Center of the Ambulatory Care Center for the

or the last three fiscal years were awarded for the 
ollowing amounts: 1987 — $111,325; 1986 — 
i1 06,838; 1985 — $123,467. The Medical School

Pulmonary Staff Services 

^>ear Sir: 

e ! Pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the 
oard of Health and Hospitals, I respectfully re- 
quest your Honor's permission to dispense with 
lublic advertising and award a contract to Trustees 
s 'f Boston University, acting by and through the Pul- 
iionary Section of Boston University School of 
'Medicine. 80 East Concord Street, for the period 
Vly1, 1987, through June 30, 1988, at a cost not to 
'<ceed $63,813. 
Under this contract, the Pulmonary Section of the 
oston University School of Medicine will provide 
neatment services for patients with tuberculosis, 
physicians from the Pulmonary Section with spe- 
fic training and expertise in pulmonary disease 



will staff the tuberculosis clinics. In addition, there 
will be a clinical medical director who will provide 
administrative, supervisory, and direct clinical 
care. 

The department has had contracts with Boston 
University School of Medicine for medical and pro- 
fessional services for many years. Unadvertised 
contracts have been awarded for the last three fis- 
cal years in the following amounts: 1987 — 
$59,452; 1986 — $55,982; 1985 — $55,982. The 
Medical School provides the department with high 
quality medical and professional services that in- 
corporate service, teaching and research activities. 

Because of the special fitness of the university to 
provide these services, as the Pulmonary Section 
has provided excellent services in this area in the 
past, because of the professional nature of the 
services, and as the cost, in my opinion, is reason- 
able, no benefit would inure to the city by publicly 
advertising for bids. 

This award is being processed late due to the fact 
that negotiations over the amount of this contract 
were not finalized until after the start of the contract 
period. The contract documents were then sent to 
the vendor for signature, however they were not re- 
turned to the Contract Office until November 19, 
1987. 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

Medico-Administrative Staff 

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 Trustees 
of Boston University, acting by the Boston Univer- 
sity School of Medicine, 80 East Concord Street, for 
the period July 1, 1987, through June 30, 1988, at a 
cost not to exceed $452,671 . 

Under this contract, the university shall provide 
qualified physicians to serve in specified medico- 
administrative staff positions in the Division of 
Emergency Medicine. Services will include on-site 
supervision and teaching of intern and resident 
physicians, medical students, nurses and EMTs; 
medical administration and quality control within 
the Boston City Hospital Emergency Department 
and Boston Emergency Medical Services; commit- 
tee work at local and regional level; research in the 
Emergency Department and in EMS; and disaster 
preparedness work. The individual assignments to 
the positions will be by the university with the ap- 
proval of the department. 

The department has had contracts with Boston 
University School of Medicine for medical and pro- 
fessional services for many years. Unadvertised 
contracts have been awarded for the past three fis- 
cal years in the following amounts: 1987 — 
$350,190; 1986 — $336,075; 1985 — $291,092. 
The increase in cost for the fiscal year 1988 con- 
tract reflects the addition of one FTE attending phy- 
sician position. The increase will allow the group to 
improve quality assurance and patient care in the 
Emergency Department, and allow one FTE to con- 
centrate on medical control, continuing education, 
and quality assurance of Boston EMS. The in- 
crease will allow the director of Boston EMS more 
time to oversee the Ambulance Service and the 
Emergency Department and to further minimize 
use of part-time employees. The Medical School 
provides the department with high quality medical 
and professional services that incorporate serv- 
ices, training, and research activities. 



Therefore, because of the special fitness of the 
university to provide these services, because of the 
personal and professional nature of the services to 
be provided, and as the cost, in my opinion, is rea- 
sonable, no benefit would inure to the city by pub- 
licly advertising for bids. 

This award is being processed late due to the fact 
that negotiations over the amount of this contract 
were not finalized until after the start of the contract 
period. The contract documents were then sent to 
the vendor for signature, however they were not re- 
turned to the Contract Office until November 19,

MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS 
Software Maintenance Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Permission is respectfully requested to dispense 
with public advertising and award a contract to 
Compuware Corporation, Birmingham, Ml 48010, 
to provide software maintenance for systems cur- 
rently installed in the Management Information 
Systems Department. 

This department had originally contracted with 
Compuware Corporation for purchase of this soft- 
ware system through an advertised contract (award 
letter dated April 30, 1984). Since this product has 
proven satisfactory and has been used by the city 
since that time, we are seeking to continue its use. 

In view of the above, and since this service has 
continued to be offered at a reasonable price, I feel 
that no useful purpose would be served by formally 
advertising again. I therefore request that a con- 
tract be approved for the period of July 1, 1987, 
through June 30, 1988, at a cost not to exceed 
$5,616. The cost of this contract will be charged to 
appropriation code 01 1-140-01 49-MI02-0490. 

The letter of award is being submitted late be- 
cause repeated requests to the contractor for the 
return of original documents were unsuccessful 
thus delaying the process. 

Sincerely, 

Allan K. Stern, 
Director. 

POLICE DEPARTMENT 
Integrated Public Safety Project 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to dis- 
pense with public advertising and award a contract 
to the Trustees of Health and Hospitals, a corpora- 
tion located at 818 Harrison Avenue. This corpora- 
tion will provide administrative and operational 
support for the Integrated Public Safety Project. 

The Integrated Public Safety Project is the de- 
sign and implementation of a Computer-Aided Dis- 
patch , Records Management, and E-9-1 - 1 Systems 
for the Police, Fire, and EMS Departments. 

Under the terms of the contract, the Trustees of 
Health and Hospitals will provide professional serv- 
ices to support the administrative needs of the proj- 
ect, as well as to coordinate the implementation of 
the E-9-1 -1 Public Education Program. The Trust- 
ees of Health and Hospitals is uniquely qualified to 
do this work because of its ability to provide employ- 
ment through a non-proprietary agency. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $22,400, which I have determined to be rea- 
sonable for the work to be performed. Of this 
amount, $1 1 ,200 is being transferred by the Fire 



69 



Department to the Police Department. The term of 
this contract shall be from July 1, 1987, through 
June 30, 1988. 

This contract is late because of the unusual nat- 
ure of this request in that it is a multi-agency effort 
and required extensive planning. 

Respectfully, 

Paul F. Evans, 
Superintendent. 

PUBLIC FACILITIES DEPARTMENT 

Design Services 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities Com- 
mission on September 3, 1987, I respectfully re- 
quest your Honor's written permission to dispense 
with further public advertisement and award a con- 
tract to Graham/Meus, Inc., a Massachusetts cor- 
poration, with offices at 224 Clarendon Street, 
providing design services for the replacement of 
fire doors, garage doors and installation of control 
exhaust system for laundry building at Long Island 
Hospital and Mattapan Chronic Disease Hospital. 
Scope of work will include preliminary drawings, 
design development, working drawings and con- 
struction supervision. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $38,680 (including $2,000 for supplementary 
services) which is a fixed fee of 1 3. 1 percent based 
on an estimated cost for the work to be performed. 
The term of this contract shall be for seventy weeks 
from the date of execution. 

Following the advertisement of this project in the 
Boston Globe on June 8, 1987, and receipt of pro- 
posals, the contractor was selected on the basis of 
a rating system undertaken by the Public Facilities 
Designer Selection Committee in accordance with 
MGL c. 7, s. 38A 1/2 et seq. The committee evalu- 
ated seven proposals submitted by the applicants 
and determined Graham/Meus, Inc. most qualified 
and competent to complete said design work. The 
numerical matrix rating for a firm reflects the com- 
bined score of each committee member's ranking 
of this firm and thus the recommended firm has the 
lowest number. The numerical matrix rating of the 
three finalists, in order of rank was as follows: 

Graham/Meus, Inc., 224 Clarendon Street, 7; 
Bayside Engineering Associates, Inc., 803 Sum- 
mer Street, 1 3; ASEC Corporation, 383 Dorchester 
Avenue, 15. 

I believe Graham/Meus, Inc. is qualified to per- 
form the services required. 

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. 

Sincerely, 

Lisa G. Chapnick, 
Director. 



Dear Mayor Flynn: 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities Com- 
mission on September 17, 1987, I respectfully re- 
quest your Honor's written permission to dispense 
with further public advertisement and award a con- 
tract to Bay State Design Associates, a Massachu- 
setts corporation, with offices at 266 Summer 
Street, providing design services for the egress 
renovations at ten schools: Margaret Fuller School, 
Clarence Edwards School, Woodrow Wilson 
School, Lewis Middle School, Emily Fifield School, 
Nathan Hale School, Patrick Kennedy School, Wil- 
liam Russell School, James Timilty School, Brigh- 
ton High School. The scope of work will include 



preliminary drawings, design development, work- 
ing drawings and construction supervision. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex- 
ceed $106,800 (including $29,000 for supplemen- 
tary services) which is a fixed fee of 12.87 percent 
based on an estimated cost of construction of 
$604,500, which I have determined to be a reason- 
able cost for the work to be performed. The term of 
this contract shall be for 1 09 weeks from the date of 
execution. 

Following the advertisement of this project in the 
Boston Globe on June 1 , 1987, and receipt of pro- 
posals, the contractor was selected on the basis of 
a rating system undertaken by the Public Facilities 
Designer Selection Committee in accordance with 
MGL c. 7, s. 38A 1/2 et seq. The committee evalu- 
ated nine proposals submitted by the applicants 
and determined Bay State Design Associates, Inc. 
most qualified and competent to complete said de- 
sign work. The numerical matrix rating for a firm re- 
flects the combined score of each committee 
member's ranking of this firm and thus the recom- 
mended firm has the lowest number. The numerical 
matrix rating of the three finalists, in order of rank 
was as follows: 

Bay State Design Associates, Inc., 266 Summer 
Street, 8; Gillen, Kuhn, Riddle & Gray, Inc., 186 
South Street, 12; Bayside Engineering, 803 Sum- 
mer Street, 14. 

I believe Bay State Design Associates, Inc., is 
qualified to perform the services required. 

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. 

Sincerely, 

Lisa G Chapnick, 
Director. 

SCHOOL DEPARTMENT 
Chairs 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

It is necessary that the Department of Planning 
and Engineering purchase a supply of chairs for 
use in various school buildings. 

I have determined that it is possible to obtain the 
chairs using the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 
bid award. The chairs in the state contract award 
meet the specifications for chairs generally pur- 
chased for use in the schools. Use of the state con- 
tract will permit us to obtain a favorable price. 

The period of the contract will be from December 
28, 1 987, to February 26, 1 988. 

I request your approval of my action in awarding a 
contract, without advertising, to Edward C. Mc- 
Carthy, d/b/a McCarthy Bros., 362 Centre Street, 
Jamaca Plain, in an amount not to exceed $1 3,000. 
In this instance I do not believe that public advertis- 
ing would serve any useful purpose. 

Respectfully yours, 

Paul W. Mooney, 
Senior Structural Engineer. 

Kurzweil Voice System 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
dispense with public advertising and to award a 
contract to Otolaryngologic Foundation, Inc., Insti- 
tute on Technology, located at 300 Longwood Ave- 
nue, for providing equipment for physically 
handicapped students. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will provide adaptive equipment designed for the 
visually handicapped in computer training. The in- 



stitute is specially qualified to do this work and is the 
sole vendor offering the adaptive Kurzweil Voice 
System-KVS for the visually impaired. 

This voice recognition system will allow visually 
impaired students to access and master basic ap 
plications. The institute will also provide free train 
ing for Boston Public School teachers. 

Compensation under this contract shall not ex 
ceed $12,000 for the period January 1, 1988, t< 
June 30, 1988. This contract is subject to the avail 
ability of funds under Article 1 2, Vocational Grant 
funds PL. 98-524. The initial encumbrance i 
$7,500. 

Because the contractor is a sole vendor and th 
cost is reasonable for the service, I believe that put 
lie advertising would serve no useful purpose. 

Compensation to this vendor during the past ye; 
in the form of unadvertised contracts is as follow: 
1 985/1 986 — $2,534; 1 986/1 987, no contract acti 
ity, purchases were under $1 ,500. 

Very truly yours, 

Leo J. Burke, 
Business Manager.

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 10 
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

directory can be obtained from the Awarding Au- 
thority or the Minority Business Office, 15 Beacon

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

LINKAGE FUNDS HELPING BOSTON NEIGHBORHOODS 



One of our commitments to Boston residents has been to ensure that 
/ery neighborhood in the city benefits from the economic growth of the 
jwntown area. To help achieve this goal, we implemented a linkage pro- 
am, in which funds from downtown development are tunneled into afforda- 
e homes and job opportunities for city residents. 

The terms of linkage are straightforward. Developers are required to pay 
> per square foot over 100,000 square feet for affordable homes in the 
iighborhoods, and an additional $1 per square foot for jobs training pro- 
ams. To date, thirty-two major developers have participated. 
The results of our linkage program of Opportunity: Affordable Housing 



er the first term are encouraging. 

four years, we have raised nearly 
J6 million for affordable housing. To 
(te, over $17 million, or 38 percent, 
c this total has been expended, 
cmprising 2,079 units, of which 
1366 are affordable. A remarkable 

I percent of the new homes created 

II be affordable to low- and moder- 
•-income families. 

iJobs linkage programs have gener- 
ic over $300,000 in commitments, 
Jh another $1.1 million expected in 
■■98. The jobs programs provide 
Is training to Boston residents and 
|e them the first crack at newly 
coated service economy jobs. The 
Eston Residents Jobs Policy re- 
tires developers to use Boston resi- 
sts for 50 percent of all con- 
sjction jobs. 

dayor Flynn, BRA, developers cel- 
aated "Linkage — Building Bridges 



and Jobs"; look to future of down- 
town/neighborhood cooperation. 

Mayor Raymond L. Flynn an- 
nounced first-term results of Pri- 
vate/Public Partnership. 

At a briefing held at the World 
Trade Center in January, Mayor Ray- 
mond L. Flynn announced the first- 
term results of the city's unique 
housing and jobs linkage program. 
The Mayor was joined by a host of 
local downtown and neighborhood 
developers, Boston neighborhood 
opinion leaders, city officials and the 
media. 

The theme of the event, as articu- 
lated by Mayor Flynn was "Linkage 
— Building Bridges of Opportunity: 
Affordable Housing and Jobs." 

Mayor Flynn said: "The develop- 
ment community and the City of Bos- 
ton have formed a new kind of social 
contract with the residents of the 



neighborhoods. This new pact pro- 
vides that the economic vitality and 
growth of downtown Boston will be 
shared through the creation of safe, 
decent, affordable housing in every 
neighborhood of the city, and 
through a jobs training program that 
gives Boston residents a greater op- 
portunity for newly created jobs." 

Under the linkage guidelines, de- 
velopers of large commercial projects 
are required to contribute $6 for 
every square foot above 100,000 to 
go toward affordable housing 
($5/square foot) and jobs training 
($1 /square foot). In the four years 
since its inception in 1983, nearly 
$46 million in housing linkage has 
been committed by developers. To 
date, over $17 million, or 38 percent, 
of this total has been expended, cre- 
ating 2,079 housing units of which 
1 ,666 are affordable. 

Moderating the event was Larry 
Dwyer, chairman of the Neighbor- 
hood Housing Trust. In addition, 
Mayor Flynn, spoke before the gath- 
ering. A slide presentation was 
made, and private citizens were ac- 
knowledged for their exemplary work 
with the linkage program. 

A luncheon followed the press con- 
ference and presentations.

MAYOR SEEKS ABANDONED CAR LEGISLATION 



Mayor Raymond L. Flynn has signed and passed on to the state Legisla- 
te a Home Rule Petition designed to rid the city's streets of abandoned ve- 
licles. 

Last September, the Mayor announced his two-part plan to address the 
iroblem of abandoned cars by strengthening the ability of cities and towns to 
leter individuals from abandoning cars on public roadways. The plan in- 
luded legislation calling for changes in existing law to enable the city to pe- 
alize directly the owners of abandoned motor vehicles. It also included the 
stablishment of an Abandoned Car Unit within the Transportation Depart- 
lent. 



The proposed legislation seeks to 
mend the existing abandoned car 
iw which provides for criminal pen- 
nies against anyone who "aban- 
ons a motor vehicle on any public 
t private way without the permission 
1 the owner or lessee of said prop- 
rty" with fines ranging from $100 to 
500. 

Mayor Flynn said, "The intent of 
ie legislation is to deter people from 
oandoning their vehicles. Adjudicat- 
g this type of offense has been a 
|w priority of the courts. Therefore, 
Municipalities have no recourse in 
bterring offenders or receiving any 
iDimpensation for the expenses in- 
))lved in removal. This legislation 
ould give municipalities the ability 
| impose fines and hopefully make 
[difficult and costly for people to 
>andon their unwanted vehicles." 
Councillor James M. Kelly of South 
oston added, "This legislation ef- 
ictively addresses the problem of 
nandoned automobiles. For too 
Ing, irresponsible individuals have 
isposed of their vehicles by leaving 
tern on city streets or vacant lots. In 
Edition to adding blight to the 
iHghborhoods, abandoned cars 
tmpound parking problems for local 
isidents." 

jThe second part of the Mayor's 
to-pronged approach included the 
itablishment last July of a full-time 
lit within the Transportation Depart- 
Unt which works exclusively on the 
fnoval of abandoned cars. This 
lit, funded in the FY1988 budget at 
Sproximately $400,000, consists of 



thirteen employees and eight tow 
trucks and works on a regular basis, 
Monday through Friday, to remove 
abandoned vehicles. 

Transportation Commissioner Ri- 
chard Dimino said, "The creation of 
this new unit enables the city to re- 
move vehicles on a regular basis 
Monday through Friday. Since July 1, 
we have removed over 7,000 cars 
from city streets. With this new unit, 
we expect to have the capacity to re- 
move up to 13,000 vehicles per 
year." 

The legislation, which must now go 
through the Legislature, will create a 
civil process whereby the City of 
Boston could impose a stiff, gradu- 
ated-fine structure, plus license revo- 
cation and nonrenewal penalties for 
noncompliance. This change would 
not preclude an individual's recourse 
in court, but would merely add a 
hearing at an administrative level. It 
would give the city the ability to ad- 
minister and enforce abandoned ve- 
hicle laws and provide a deterrent 
mechanism without having to rely on 
the courts. 

The number of abandoned cars on 
Boston's streets has risen dramati- 
cally in recent years, while the city's 
ability to deal with the situation has 
been hindered by several economic 
factors. Up until about three years 
ago, private contractors paid as 
much as $37.50 per abandoned car 
for their scrap metal value. 

In recent years, however, two pri- 
mary factors have contributed to a 
reversal of this. First, the price of 



scrap metal has decreased signifi- 
cantly. Second, concern over the po- 
tential environmental hazards of 
waste materials has resulted in stiffer 
DEQE regulations, and therefore, a 
higher cost of disposal. 

Private contractors now charge in- 
dividuals approximately $50 to re- 
move a vehicle as opposed to 
several years ago when they would 
pay a nominal amount to come and 
remove a car. Transportation officials 
estimate that it costs the city approx- 
imately $80 to remove and properly 
dispose of each car abandoned on 
city streets. 

Commissioner Dimino added "The 
city's ability to deter owners from 
abandoning their unwanted vehicles 
is crucial. Now that the Home Rule 
Petition has moved to the Legisla- 
ture, we will be seeking assistance 
from residents and businesses in the 
city, as well as local officials and 
community groups, to obtain passage 
of this bill and to give the city the re- 
sources necessary to combat this 
public safety hazard and environ- 
mental nuisance." 

SIGNS OF THE TIMES 

Mayor Raymond L. Flynn announced 
that the Boston Transportation Depart- 
ment (BTD) began implementing its 
Street Name Improvement Program on 
several major arterials throughout Bos- 
ton's neighborhoods. 

The Street Name Improvement Pro- 
gram, instituted in August of 1986 in 
Downtown Boston, the Kenmore/Fen- 
way area and at major squares through- 
out the city, utilizes a standard-sized 
sign which is larger and sturdier than 
the signs previously used. They also 
have a highly reflective surface and 
larger lettering which allows them to be 
placed higher up on poles, making 
them more visible to motorists and virtu- 
ally vandal-proof.

Signs of the Times . . . 

(Continued from front page) 
Transportation Commissioner Ri- 
chard Dimino said, "These new street 
signs are another step by the Flynn Ad- 
ministration toward delivering basic city 
services. They are designed to increase 
public safety by providing highly visible 
locational information and increased 
nighttime and daytime visibility of street 
signs, in addition to generally improving 
the flow of traffic on Boston's street sys- 
tem." 

The following is the scheduled work 
plan for the neighborhood arterial pro- 
gram. 

• Washington Street in Dorchester, 
Mattapan, Brighton, Allston, Hyde 
Park, Jamaica Plain, Roxbury, West 
Roxbury and Roslindale, 940 signs, 
cost $37,600. 

• Dorchester Avenue in Dorchester, 
Mattapan and South Boston, 434 
signs, cost $17,360. 

• Blue Hill Avenue in Dorchester, Mat- 
tapan, Hyde Park and Jamaica Plain, 
364 signs, cost $14,560. 

• Centre Street in Roxbury, West Rox- 
bury and Roslindale, 280 signs, cost 
$11,200. 

• Hyde Park Avenue in Hyde Park and 
Jamaica Plain, 228 signs, cost 
$9,120. 

• Commonwealth Avenue in Allston 
and Brighton, 1 68 signs, cost $6,720. 

• Bunker Hill Street in Charlestown, 
133 signs, cost $5,320. 

• Chelsea Street and Bennington 
Street in East Boston, 206 signs, cost 
$8,240. 

• East Broadway and West Broadway 
in South Boston, 88 signs, cost 
$3,500. 

• Massachusetts Avenue in Roxbury, 
63 signs, cost $2,520. 

Four Transportation Department em- 
ployees will be assigned on a full-time 
basis to the Street Name Improvement 
Program in the neighborhoods. They 
will be responsible for fabricating and 
replacing nearly 3,000 street name 
signs at intersections on twelve major 
roadways in twelve residential areas of 
the city. This phase of the project will 
take approximately four months to com- 
plete with a total cost of $116,160 for 
sign materials. 



PASSENGER SAFETY DAY 

Transportation Commissioner Ri- 
chard Dimino encourages the public to 
stop by the passenger safety display in 



the third floor lobby of City Hall on 
Thursday, February 25, between 8:45 
a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Materials developed 
to promote the use of safety belts and to 
increase awareness of the Massachu- 
setts Child Passenger Safety Law will 
be available. 



BOSTON FAIR HOUSING 
COMMISSION CAMPAIGN 

The Boston Fair Housing Commis- 
sion released nine public service an- 
nouncements to local television 
stations to increase awareness of hous- 
ing discrimination and inform Boston 
residents of the rights and remedies 
available to them to combat such dis- 
crimination. 

"We hope that after viewing these 
public service announcements, victims 
of housing discrimination, whether it be 
in the purchase or rental of units, will 
pick up the phone and call the number 
provided in the PSAs to assert their 
rights," said Ernest Gutierrez, execu- 
tive director of the Boston Fair Housing 
Commission. 

Produced by a production company 
in Minnesota for agencies participating 
in the federal Fair Housing Program, 
the PSA package contains, one, ten- 
second, four, thirty-second, and four, 
sixty-second announcements which 
are designed to educate and inform the 
public of various forms of discrimina- 
tory practices through simulated enact- 
ments of violations of fair housing laws.

CONTRACTS AWARDED 
,| WITHOUT ADVERTISING 

The Mayor has approved the 
n warding of contracts without ad- 

■ \ rtising, based on the following 

mmunications: 



ENVIRONMENT DEPARTMENT 
Harbor Islands Task Force Documents, etc. 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to dis- 
pense with public advertising and award a contract 
to Ms. Valerie Burns of 249 A Street, South Boston. 

The period of this contract shall run from January 
25, 1988, through June 30, 1988, at a cost not to 
exceed $1 0,000, which I have determined to be rea- 
sonable. Ms. Bums shall be compensated for her 
services at a rate of $45 per hour. 

Under the terms of this contract, Ms. Burns will 
prepare briefing documents and background mate- 
rial for the Boston Harbor Islands Task Force which 
will be responsible for making city policy recom- 
mendations on future uses of the Boston Harbor Is- 
lands. 

Ms. Burns will provide the following services: pre- 
pare briefing materials on the current physical con- 
ditions of the Harbor Islands; provide background 
research on ownership, previous uses, and future 
planning efforts undertaken by the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts; update the Task Force on pro- 
posed uses of Spectacle Island by the State and the 
MWRA for disposal of excavated material from the 
Central ArteryrThird Harbor Tunnel project and in- 
cineration or composting of sludge; assist in the 
preparation of work plans and reports from the 
committee for submission to the Mayor. 

Valerie Burns is uniquely qualified to provide 
these services given her expertise as a former plan- 
ning director for the City of Boston Parks and Rec- 
reation Department. As executive director for the 
Boston Harbor Associates, she coordinated the 
Youth Conservation Corps program on Long Island 
and worked closely with the Massachusetts Depart- 
ment of Coastal Zone Management, DEQE, and 
the Department of Environment Management on is- 
sues such as Harbor Development, Environmental 
legislation, and creation of the Boston Harbor Is- 
lands State Park. 

Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be provided, I believe that public advertising 
will serve no useful purposes. 

Sincerely, 

L. M. Downey, 
Director. 

HEALTH AND HOSPITALS DEPARTMENT 
Ventilator Repair 

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 Clarence 
E. Smith, 31 Buena Vista Ave., Arlington, for the 
period November 1, 1987, through October 31, 
1 988, at a cost not to exceed $8,750. 

Under this contract, Clarence E. Smith will pro- 
vide services to repair 3 Emerson ventilators: Serial 
No. 841 106, $425; Serial No. 841 1 1 1 , $425; Serial 
No. K370, $3,800; total, $4,750. 

In addition to the above, Clarence E. Smith will 
provide repairs as needed on nine additional Emer- 
son ventilators totaling $4,000. 

Prior to Fiscal Year 1 988, Clarence E. Smith was 
awarded an unadvertised contract for Fiscal Year 
1 981 . During the interval of 1 98 1 to 1 987 this equip- 
ment was not in use. Due to the AIDS epidemic this 
equipment is in use again, which makes it neces- 
sary for the repairs. 

Therefore, because Clarence E. Smith is the only 
vendor in the area that is qualified to provide these 
services, and because of the cost, in my opinion, is 
reasonable, no benefits would inure to the city by 
publicly advertising for bids. 



The documents were not returned from the ven- 
dor until January, 1988, therefore this contract is 
being submitted late. 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

Parent, Child Health 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 Trustees 
of Health and Hospitals of the City of Boston, Inc., 
725 Massachusetts Avenue, for the period July 1, 
1987, through June 30, 1988, at a cost not to ex- 
ceed $160,732. 

This contract is for the development of a Parent 
and Child Health Services program within the De- 
partment of Health and Hospitals. Services will in- 
clude the provision of health education for injury 
prevention, and administrative support to facilitate 
discharge planning for infants delivered at Boston 
City Hospital. The contract will cover salaries, 
fringe, operating costs, indirect costs and overhead 
for the administrative assistant and health educator 
assigned to facilitate discharge planning and train 
staff at Boston City Hospital, health centers and 
community sites. 

Fiscal year 1988 is the first year that a contract 
will be in effect for these services. 

Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be provided, and as the cost, in my opinion, 
is reasonable, no benefit would inure to the city by 
publicly advertising for bids. 

This award is being processed late due to the fact 
that negotiations over the amount of this contract 
were not finalized until after the start of the contract 
period. The contract documents were then sent to 
the vendor for signature, however, they were not re- 
turned to the contract office until January 14,1 988. 
Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

Gastroenterologist 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 Michael 
Bliss, M.D., Cohasset, for the period October 1, 
1987, through June 30, 1988, at a cost not to ex- 
ceed $2,333. 

Under this contract, Dr. Bliss will provide consul- 
tative services in gastroenterology at Long Island 
Hospital. On-site consultations will be provided 
once every other week at Long Island Hospital, 
each visit not to exceed two hours in length. All ses- 
sions will be reimbursed at the rate of $50 per hour. 
Telephone availability for consultations relating to 
gastroenterology will be provided over the period of 
the contract for a flat fee of $333. Reimbursement 
will be paid on a service-rendered basis. 

Fiscal year 1 988 is the first year a contract will be 
awarded to Dr. Bliss. Fiscal year 1987, Dr. McClin- 
tock was awarded an unadvertised contract in the 
amount of $2,300. Prior to this, these services were 
not required by the hospital. 

As Dr. Bliss is a specialist in this field, because of 
the professional nature of the services to be pro- 
vided, and as the cost, in my opinion, is reasonable, 
no useful purpose would be served by publicly ad- 
vertising for bids. 

This contract is being processed late because it 
was not determined whether the contract would be 



91 



with the Trustees of Boston University, a private cor- 
poration or the physician providing the services. It 
was decided that the contract would be with Dr. Mi- 
chael Bliss, the physician providing the service. 
Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

JOBS AND COMMUNITY SERVICES 
Dear Mayor Flynn: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
award a contract to the Home Builders Institute, a 
nonprofit corporation, located in Washington, D.C. 
Under the terms of the contract, the contractor will 
provide classroom and hand-on training to approxi- 
mately thirteen TAG-eligible participants in the area 
of housing rehabilitation. In addition, counseling 
and job placement services will be provided. 

The contractor was selected based upon an eval- 
uation of its refunding proposal submitted to the 
Mayor's Office of Jobs and Community Services. 
Other selection criteria include the results of site 
monitoring visits conducted by JCS staff, an overall 
review of the contractor's performance during the 
prior contract period, administrative capability, rea- 
sonableness of cost, and the ability to serve the tar- 
geted population. 

Compensation under the terms of this contract 
shall not exceed $73,560, payment being provided 
to the City of Boston through a Targeted Assistance 
Grant received through the Commonwealth of Mas- 
sachusetts. The period of performance shall be 
from July 1, 1987, until March 31, 1988. This re- 
quest has been delayed due to the time involved in 
reaching funding decisions. 

As this is a negotiated contract at a reasonable 
cost, based upon an extensive program and pro- 
posal review, I believe that public advertising would 
serve no useful purpose. I, therefore, request per- 
mission to dispense with inviting sealed bids by ad- 
vertising in the City Record, pursuant to authority 
granted under the City of Boston Code, St. 4, s. 5. 
Sincerely, 

Kristen J. McCormack, 
Director. 

SCHOOL DEPARTMENT 
Chapter 766 Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

As superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, 
I respectfully request your authorization for the 
award of a contract to New England Medical Cen- 
ter, T.M.C.A. Foundation, Inc., a corporation lo- 
cated at 750 Washington Street. 

This contract shall be in effect during the period 
from September 14, 1987, to June 30, 1988, and 
shall occur at a cost not to exceed $1 1 ,870, which I 
have deemed to be reasonable. 

Under the terms of this contract, the contractor 
will provide the necessary entry level physical ex- 
aminations, medical examinations of students who 
participate in interscholastic sports, and chapter 
766 physical examinations for students at Madison 
Park High School, Copley Square High School, and 
Boston High School. In addition, the contractor will 
provide emergency medical service and medical 
consultation services to the school nurses at these 
locations. 

The contractor is specially qualified to provide 
the above services because it is in close proximity 
to the designated schools. In addition, many of stu- 
dents attending these schools presently receive 
primary care from TMCA Foundation, as it is the lo- 
cal health provider, the contractor is also able to 
provide additional back-up service to the school 
health care and has sufficient staff for this purpose. 



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. 

This request is being submitted late because of 
delays in obtaining an original Certificate of Author- 
ity from the contractor. 

Compensation to this vendor during the past 
three fiscal years in the form of unadvertised con- 
tracts is as follows: 1987 — $9,507; 1986 — 
$12,300; 1985 — $12,300. 

Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson, 
Superintendent.

derstanding that cost-shared students also need a 
local education agency contract. Services have 
been provided however. 

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

area, and the setting of rates by Massachusetts 
Rate Setting Commission it is the determination of 
the School Committee that the public interest 
would not be served by public advertising for bids.

Drugs and Alcohol Survey 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

As superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, 
I respectfully request your authorization for the 
award of a contract to Rocky Mountain Behavioral 
Science Institute, Inc. , a corporation located at Col- 
orado. 

This contract shall be in effect during the period 
January 6, 1 988, to June 30, 1 988, and shall occur 
at a cost not to exceed $22,000, which I have 
deemed to be reasonable. 

Under the terms of this contract, the contractor 
will: 

Survey grades four to twelve and staff in sixteen 
Boston schools (17,000 individuals); grades six to 
twelve will be given the American Drug and Alcohol 
Survey; grades four and five will take part in the 
Children's Survey; staff will take the American Drug 
and Alcohol survey but will not complete inappro- 
priate questions. 

Analyze the survey data and prepare reports at 
two different times at dates specified. 

Provide reports as follows: 

a. One detailed report will be provided for each 
school. For example, a detailed report will be pro- 
vided for the ninth through twelve grade at each 
high school. Seventeen detailed reports will be pro- 
duced, one for each of sixteen schools plus one for 
staff. 

b. One executive summary will be provided for 
staff, reports for staff at sixteen schools will be com- 
bined for analyses. 

c. The detailed reports will include tables such as 
use of drugs at schools and responses to questions 
on the perceived harm of drugs. 

4. Train ninety-six Boston Public School employ- 
ees in techniques of administering the survey in- 
struments. 



Provide Community Action Manuals for each of 
the sixteen schools. 

The Office of Curriculum and Instruction con- 
tacted three agencies to provide this survey of drug 
and alcohol habits and attitudes of students and 
staff. The results are as follows: Massachusetts 
Prevention Center: The center has a survey instru- 
ment for evaluating the success of their programs 
but move to survey general habits and attitudes; 
they would be able to develop a survey but cannot 
provide data collection, analysis, reporting and dis- 
seminating; Boston University, contacted by Shir- 
ley Handler, program advisor for Health Education, 
indicated great interest in the project but could not 
quote a cost; the university would need to research 
the issue and develop a survey; The Rocky Moun- 
tain Behavioral Science Institute, has a survey in- 
strument that is complete and has been validated 
for similar populations and only RMBSI has the ca- 
pacity to perform the work during the period of the 
grant. 

Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be provided under this agreement and the 
fact that only this vendor was able to provide the 
services during the grant period, it is my determina- 
tion that the public interest would not be served by 
publicly advertising for bids. 

This is the first contractual agreement between 
the Boston Public Schools and Rocky Mountain Be- 
havioral Science Institute, Inc. 

Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson, 
Superintendent. 

Educational Materials 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectively request your Honor's permission to 
dispense with public advertising and award con- 
tracts to companies listed on the attached for the 
period July 1 , 1986, through June 30, 1989. 

Under the terms of these contracts, the contrac- 
tors will provide books and certain other educa- 
tional materials as requested by a designated 
representative of the Boston Public Schools. The 
cost of all items purchased under these contracts 
will not exceed standard catalog prices then in ef- 
fect, which the Business Manager considers rea- 
sonable. The total amount of the contract for all 
companies shall not exceed $5,000,000 per year. 

Because of the ongoing need to provide the Bos- 
ton Public Schools with books and certain other ed- 
ucational materials, and because textbooks and 
certain other educational materials are unique to a 
particular publisher, it is my opinion that advertising 
for bids would serve no public purpose. 

Your approval is hereby requested to award con- 
tracts to the firms listed on the attached award letter 
for the period of July 1, 1986, to June 30, 1989, in- 
clusive. 

The Auditor may certify an appropriation or other 
funds in an amount less than the face amount of 
each contract hereunder pursuant to the Standard 
Contract General Conditions, Article 1 2.3 and 1 2.4. 
Very truly yours, 

Leo J. Burke, 
Business Manager.

93 



1987, the School Commttee approved all of the 
chapter 636 FY'88 proposals for the sum of 
$5,128,956. Massachusetts Institute of Technolo- 
gy's portion as is related to that amount is $49,794. 

The contractor will provide the following serv- 
ices: 

Through its Secondary Technical Education Pro- 
ject, MIT proposes to continue its successful pro- 
grams at the Mario Umana Harbor School of 
Science and Technology and to provide profes- 
sional development activities for the faculty at Bos- 
ton Latin School. Professional development will be 
directed toward improving instructional and inter- 
personal skills for the purpose of retaining minority 
students. 

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 University Pair- 
ing; 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 serv-

as follows: 1 985 — $86,250; 1 986 — $81 ,469; 1 987 
— $81,154.

On behalf of the Boston Public Schools, I request 
your authorization for the award of a contract to Dr. 
Jean Lau Chin, a consultant located in Newton. The 
contract shall be in effect during the period of Janu- 
ary 27, 1988, to June 30, 1988, and shall occur at a 
cost not to exceed $4,000, which I have deemed to 
be reasonable. On July 21 , 1 987 the School Com- 
mittee approved all of the chapter 636 FY' 88 pro- 
posals for the sum of $5, 1 28,956. 

Under the terms of this contract the following

pression, school performance, improving self-es- 
teem, effective communication skills and effective 
behavior patterns. Group counseling for parents 
will include family problem solving, effective inter- 
personel skills, effective parenting skills, cognitive 
development and learning disabilities. Consultant 
will provide 100 hours of on-site counseling at $40. 
per hour at the exam schools.

the above services because she is highly experi- 
enced in dealing with school and community prob- 
lems of Asian students, and there are no Asians on 
staff at the exam schools to service the 300 Asian 
students. 



Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be provided under this agreement and the 
expertise of the contractor in providing such serv- 
ices, 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.

this vendor and the Boston Public Schools.

«• Sir: 

'ursuant to the authority delegated to me by the

ty under this contract, as so amended, to an

tional Neighborhood Health Advocates to Healthy 
Baby Program to increase outreach; two additional 
Advocates to Healthy Child Program; one-half FTE 
Health Educator to Healthy Baby Program; one- 
half FTE Nutritionist, plus one social worker to be

ure to Thrive Program.

Diagnostic Test Kits 

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 amend the con- 
tract with Abbott Laboratories, Diagnostics 
Division, Illinois, to provide diagnostic test kits to 
the Department of Health and Hospitals for the per- 
iod July 1, 1987, through June 30, 1988, at a cost 
not to exceed $177,610. 

This amendment will increase the amount of the 
contract by $25,000, thereby increasing the city's 
total liability under this contract to an amount not to 
exceed $202,610. 

A new virology laboratory has recently been set- 
up at Boston City Hospital and as a result two tests 
that were previously being performed by outside 
agencies, will now be done in-house. Bids were so- 
licited from seven companies and two companies 
responded to the invitation for bids, with Abbott 
Laboratories being the lower bidder. 

Inasmuch as a contract exists with Abbott La- 
boratoreis, Diagnostics Division, for similar type 
items this amendment is requested to incorporate 
these items into this contract. 

Whereas terms and conditions shall remain the 
same and kits are offered at prices I consider rea- 
sonable, I recommend approval of this amend- 
ment. 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

JOBS AND COMMUNITY SERVICES 
English Language Instructions 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

On or about August 7, 1987, your Honor ap- 
proved the award of a contract with Oficina His- 
pana, a nonprofit corporation, located at 1 25 Amory 
Street, Roxbury, for the provision of vocational, 
business skills and English as a second language 
instruction to Hispanic newcomers in the Jamaica 
Plain area. 

Your approval is requested to amend this con- 
tract in terms of compensation. This amendment 
will increase the contract amount to allow the con- 
tractor to hire one additional support staff person 
and implement an automated fiscal management 
control system. In addition, the contractor will de- 
velop a short and long term plan to enhance its ca- 
pacity to serve immigrants and refugees under the 
Gateway Cities Program. Funding will be provided 
by the Executive Office of Communities and Devel- 
opment (EOCD) throught the Gateway Cities Pro- 
gram in the amount of $33,960. Total compensation 
under the terms of the contract, as amended, shall 
not exceed $78,960. All other terms and conditions 
of the original contract shall remain the same. 

As this amendment is for a negotiated contract at 
a reasonable cost, no public purpose would be 
served by formal advertising. I, therefore, request 



permission to dispense with inviting sealed bids by 
advertising in the City Record pursuant to authority 
granted under the City of Boston Code, St. 4, s. 5. 
Sincerely, 

Kristen J. McCormack, 
Director. 

PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 
Repairs 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

On July 22, 1987, you approved the award of a 
contract based on public advertising for bids to Bal- 
four Engineering Co., Inc., of 310 Franklin Street, 
for repairs to existing mechanical equipment at var- 
ious drawbridges, SC-7629(88), at a cost not to ex- 
ceed $87,200, for the period July 1, 1987, to June 
30, 1988. 

Your permission is respectfully requested to 
amend this contract to provide for additional work 
not anticipated in the original contract: 

In the course of the work this amount has proven 
to be insufficient, inasmuch as the major portion of 
the work done under this contract is on an emer- 
gency basis and cannot be anticipated in advance 
and the funds are being depleted at a rate that will 
expire very short of the expiration date of the con- 
tract and a great deal of additional work is still being 
scheduled. 

Very truly yours, 

Joseph F. Casazza, 
Commissioner.

HOMEOWNERS CAN PURCHASE ADJACENT LOTS 



Under a new city program, homeowners in South Boston, Dorchester, 
Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, and Brighton can purchase vacant lots next to their 
properties, to add driveways, gardens, and play areas. 

The Public Facilities Department's Abutter Lots Program has sold seven- 
teen parcels to homeowners in the past two months. The lots average 2,800 
to 3,000 square feet, and are generally too small for development. The pro- 
gram requires that the lots be bordered by privately owned homes on at least 
two sides, and are not needed for open space or other public use. The Abut- 
ter Lots Program will also accept proposals from joint applicants who wish to 
divide a lot. 



Since October, forty-one abutter 
lots have been advertised for sale. 
Every two months, Public Facilities 
Department will seek proposals for 
approximately twenty new lots in 
neighborhoods across the city. For 
more information, call 725-3431. 



BOSTON AWARDED $3.1 MILLION 
FOR HOMELESS ASSISTANCE 

Boston received the largest single 
city grant awarded under the Stuart 
B. McKinney Homeless Assistance 
Act, obtaining $1 million in emer- 
gency homeless funds, and $317,000 
for homeless assistance. The state 
received $678,000 in additional aid to 
the homeless. 

The money is a testament to the 
partnership we have forged with the 
non-profit organizations, the state, 
i and the city in serving the homeless. 

The grant proposal was submitted 
on behalf of 24 area non-profit orga- 
nizations in Boston, and the money 
(will go directly to these programs. 
'The funds will create 264 new beds 
for Boston's homeless, 83 for home- 
| less families, and 78 for elderly 
homeless. Further expansions of 
Boston's homeless support network 
through the use of these funds will 
allow 1500 additional homeless peo- 
ple each year to benefit from the 
area's homeless service. Child care, 
counseling, meals and jobs training 
services will also be expanded.

Family Service Center for $1 . The cen- 
ter has been using the building since 
1 972 for its Headstart and day care pro- 
grams. 

"The Kennedy Center has become 
an invaluable asset to the Charlestown 
community," said Lisa G. Chapnick, Di- 
rector of PFD. "We are pleased to offer 
the Kent School to the Kennedy Center, 
which helps to insure the future for its 
child care programs." 

All of the Kennedy Center's child care 
programs were disrupted in mid-De- 
cember when an arsonist set fire to the 
Kent School building. The thirty-two 
children in pre-school day care were re- 
located to the First Baptist Church. The 
after-school program, which handles 
twenty children between the ages of six 
and twelve, was moved to space at the 
Kent Community School. Headstart, a 
federally funded educational program 
for underprivileged children three to 
five years old, has been shut down 
since the fire. The 1 07 children enrolled 
in the Headstart program are being vis- 
ited in their homes by a staff member 
one hour a week. Classrooms are cur- 
rently being prepared in space donated 
by developer T. J. Flatley in the Sch- 
rafft's Building. Classes will reconvene 
at the end of February.

"Everyone has been so helpful to us 
since the fire," said Kate McDonough, 
Executive Director of the Kennedy Cen- 
ter. "With Public Facilities giving us the 
Kent School, we can apply for the fi- 
nancing necessary to renovate the 
building. PFD has also encouraged us 
to apply for a physical improvement 
grant, which would really help us in get- 
ting both the Headstart and day care 
programs back into the building." 

The John F. Kennedy Family Service 
Center, founded in 1965, offers a wide 
variety of programs from many loca- 
tions throughout Charlestown. Their 
Senior Center on Bunker Hill serves 
meals, provides recreation activities, 
and coordinates homemaker services. 
The Community Center on Green 
Street houses job placement services, 
family and drug/alcohol counseling, 
fuel assistance, and a wide variety of 
programs for area youths, including the 
Kennedy Center's "College Club." This 
group helps high school students pre- 
pare for SATs and helps their parents to 
find and apply for financial aid. 

The Charlestown Headstart Fire 
Fund, started in January with a goal of 
raising $100,000, has received to date 
contributions totalling over $7,000. Do- 
nations can be sent to Jean E. Driscoll, 
Branch Manager, Bank of New 
England, 437 Rutherford Avenue, 
Charlestown, MA 021 29. 



UNFOLDING BEAUTY: 
THE ART OF THE FAN 

From March 9 through June 5, 1988, 
the beauty and romance of fans will be 
highlighted in the western fans and cos- 
tumes from the permanent collection of 
the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston shown 
in Unfolding Beauty: The Art of the Fan. 
According to Deborah Kraak, assistant 
curator in the Department of Textiles 
and Costumes, "Ninety fans and twenty 
costumed mannequins in the exhibition 
will illustrate the changing styles of the 
fan from the eighteenth to the twentieth 
century. The chronological survey will 
be complemented by a display of fans 
f rm different eras, grouped according to 
specific themes: the Grand Tour, politi- 
cal fans, chinoiserie, and ballooning." 

Specialty fans created by ingenious 
designers who transformed the fans 



into party games, lorgnettes, and para- 
sols will be well represented in the exhi- 
bition. Selected fans will be 
accompanied by works of European 
and American decorative arts, costume 
accessories and fashion plates, and 
classical figurines that relate to the 
fans' subject matter and design. Por- 
traits and prints containing fans will also 
be on view. 

The costumed mannequins will re- 
veal the fan as a virtually indispensible 
fashion accessory for both women and 
men. 

The exhibition will display the rich- 
ness and variety of materials used in 
manufacture of these luxurious acces- 
sories. Ivory from India or Africa, 
mother-of-pearl from Madagascar, Aus- 
tralia and Sumatra, tortoiseshell from 
Borneo, Bali and Guinea were imported 
to Europe and transformed into sticks to 
support the colorful fan leaves. A vari- 
ety of techniques were used to decorate 
the miniature "canvases," often with 
adaptations of paintings by famous art- 
ists such as Velasquez and Watteau. 

Fan leaves painted in watercolors or 
oils will be shown along with hand- 
tinted prints and illustrations rendered 
in the more unusual media of appliqued 
straw, fabric and sequins. Rare fan 
types such as cabriolet fans, seldom 
found in a collection, are characterized 
by widely spaced spokes and a reinforc- 
ing rim and are named for their struc- 
tural similarity of the wheels of a popular 
eighteenth-century carriage.

"STAY-IN-SCHOOL" 
IS ABCD FOCUS 

The 1988 Summerworks program i 
gearing up to specifically help younge 
students who face problems in schoo 
It will focus on giving fourteen-, fifteer 
and sixteen-year-olds the skills and m< 
tivation that will help them stay in scho< 
by providing not only job opportunitie 
but career development, special pre 
grams, and exposure to excellent ro> 
models. 

In addition to paid jobs, youths will a 
tend career development workshop 
conducted by media personalities, pr 
fessionals, and Summerworks alumr 
The workshops give them an opport 
nity to explore options with experts fro 
many fields. Seventeen special pr 
grams meet the needs of particul 
groups or provide special skills. The;: 
programs have included the Career E 
ploration Program for handicapp* 
youth, MICAS (Metropolitan Indo-CI 
nese Adolescents Service), La Alian 
Hispana, and a program for deaf yoi^ 
at the Horace Mann School. 

Summerworks will continue its Su j 
mer Training and Education Progral 



106 



nded by the Ford Foundation, which 
irolls academically at-risk youths in a 
itionally renowned, education/work 
ogram that tests the effects of reme- 
al education and skill training on the 
:hievements of fourteen- and fifteen- 
■ar-olds. The program will also con- 
iiue to run the Boston Youth 
xiservation Corp, which is funded by 
3 City of Boston, and combines work 
i proving Boston's parks with environ- 
jntal education. 

Summerworks is funded with federal 
d state monies through the Mayor's 
fice of Jobs and Community Serv- 
;s. Because of a drastic, 24-percent 
juction in federal funding for summer 
)S in the state of Massachusetts, 
JCD's Summerworks program will 
ce again have to turn away potential 
snts. 

Dver 1 ,800 Boston youths — over a 
>usand less then were served in 1 986 

were served in last year's program, 
j more of those 1 ,800 will be cut from 
mmerworks 1988. In urging state 
d city government to allocate funding 
close the gap left by the loss of fed- 
il monies, ABCD Executive Director 
bert M. Coard says, "If the state and 
t don't take steps to allocate funding 
;over the federal loss, we may be 
king at a situation this summer that 

be disastrous for young people. 
5se outrageous federal cuts repre- 
lt an abandonment of our youth — 

city and state must not stand by and 
this happen in Boston."

IV. HIGH COMMENDATION 

At0310hours, Janauary 17, 1988, Incident2142, 
Box 5156 (two alarms) was struck for a fire at 194 
Kelton Street, District 11. 

Upon arrival, heavy fire was issuing from the 
third-floor apartment, whereupon the members of 
Ladder Company 14 were informed of two women 
who were trapped in the third-floor apartment that 
was involved with fire. 

Fire Lieutenant Charles M. Parillo and Fire 
Fighter Richard F. Felton of Ladder Company 14 
forced entry and ascended via the front stairway to 
the third-floor level . They encountered a man on the 
stairway who appeared confused. He informed 
them that a woman was inside the apartment. At 
this point in time, heavy fire and smoke were issu- 
ing from the apartment. Forced to crawl into the 
apartment, due to the intense heat and smoke, Fire 
Lieutenant Parillo and Fire Fighter Felton located 
an unconscious woman lying on the floor. With con- 
siderable effort, under conditions of heat so intense 
that they were unable to stand. Fire Lieutenant 
Parillo and Fire Fighter Felton dragged the woman 
from the apartment to the landing of the stairs 
where the woman was placed on the shoulders of 
Fire Lieutenant Parillo and carried to the street. Im- 
mediately after the rescue, flashover occurred, en- 
gulfing the entire room. 

Because of the great personal risk involved in the 
rescue of the woman, who had suffered burns over 
40 percent of her body, and by their quick action, 
thus saving her life, the Fire Commissioner is 
pleased to highly commend Fire Lieutenant Cha- 
rles M. Parillo and Fire Fighter Richard F. Felton of 
Ladder Company 14 and recommends that their 
cases be referred to the Board of Merit for further 
consideration. 



CONTRACTS AMENDED 

The Mayor has approved the 
amending of contracts, based on 
the following information: 

BUDGET & PROGRAM EVALUATION 
Expenditure Plan and Research 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

On August 10. 1987, your Honor approved the 
award of an unadvertised contract to Ranjeet Su- 
dan of 142 Middlesex Road, Newton, to complete a 
five-year expenditure plan for the city and to con- 
duct primary research on revenues, including his- 
torical analysis and to provide research assistance 
on budgetary and administrative matters pertain- 
ing to the Department of Health and Hospitals for 
the period of July 1, 1987, through June 30, 1988, at 
a cost not to exceed $2,975. 

Due to the increasing complexity of the project, 
and the number of hours required to complete the 
assignment, the total amount of the approved con- 
tract proved to be insufficient. Your approval is re- 
quested to amend the contractor's rate of 
compensation from $8 per hour to $1 2 per hour. The 



hourly rate of the contract remains consistent or be- 
low hourly compensation levels for similarly skilled 
consultants. The cost of this amendment, which is 
effective on January 4, 1988, shall not exceed 
$7,000 The contract, as amended, shall not ex- 
ceed $9,975. This contract is being submitted after 
the effective date due to an administrative error. 

In view of the contractor's performance and fa- 
miliarity with the project, I believe that no purpose 
would be served through public advertising. 
Sincerely, 

Robert J. Ciolek, 
Director. 

PUBLIC FACILITIES DEPARTMENT 
Buildings Design Services 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities Com- 
mission on November 5, 1987, I resepectfully re- 
quest your Honor's permission to dispense with 
further public advertising and amend a contract ap- 
proved by your Honor on December 1, 1986, 
awarded to Architects and Associated Designers, 
Inc., a Massachusetts corporation, with offices at 
286 Congress Street, for design of renovations to 
the Curtis Hall Municipal Building and Uphams 
Corner Municipal Building. The cost of this amend- 
ment shall not exceed $42,692. The amended cost 
of this contract shall not exceed $185,632. The 
amended term of this contract shall be extended to 
October 1, 1989 

Said amendment is necessary due to the in- 
creased scope of service required of the designer 
due to the increase in construction budget from 
$845,000 to $1,212,000. Under the terms of the 
amended contract, Architects and Associated De- 
signers, Inc. shall provide additional services in- 
cluding roof and pool renovations at Curtis Hall and 
interior renovations at Uphams Corner. 

In view of the technical and professional nature of 
the services required, the expertise and familiarity 
of the designer with all existing conditions, and the 
reasonable cost of such services, it is my view that 
further public advertising would serve no useful 
purpose in this particular instance. 

Sincerely, 

Lisa G. Chapnick, 
Director. 

PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT 
Project Inspection Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

On November 30, 1 986, you approved the award 
of a contract to Purcell Associates, of 50 Redfield 
Street, for highway reconstruction inspection serv- 
ices for State Aid Project No. 47, in Bray St. , Centre 
St., Columbus Ave., Heath St., and New Heath St., 
in Roxbury, SC-7682(87), at a cost not to exceed 
$120,000, for a period of 120 working days. 

Your permission is respectfully requested to 
amend and extend this contract to provide for addi- 
tional engineering and inspection services not an- 
ticipated in the original contract. 

These include: concrete base on several streets, 
which was an unforeseen field condition requiring 
additional time to install street lighting and trench- 
ing within the streets; the rescheduling of opera- 
tions by the contractor requiring additional field 
inspectors to monitor construction on several 
streets simultaneously; coordination and recom- 
mendations modifying full-depth pavement recon- 
struction; and evaluation of MBTA impact to the 
limits of construction. 

The cost of this amendment, which is effective on 
December 15, 1987, shall not exceed $45,000, a 
fixed cost, which I have determined to be reason- 
able for the work. The contract, as amended, shall 



107 



not exceed $165,000. 

An extension of an additional seventy-five work- 
ing days is necessary to complete the additional en- 
gineering and inspection services. 

This amendment is being prepared at this late 
date, as only now have the full extent of the addi- 
tional work and the costs involved been fully real- 
ized. 

Inasmuch as this work is related directly to and in 
conjunction with an existing contract, I feel that 
public advertising would serve no useful purpose. 
Very truly yours, 

Joseph F. Casazza, 
Commissioner. 



CONTRACTS AWARDED 
WITHOUT ADVERTISING 

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

JOBS AND COMMUNITY SERVICES 
Employment Services 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
award a contract to Tent City Corporation, a non- 
profit corporation, located at 410A Columbus Ave- 
nue. Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will recruit, screen and assess approximately 300 
unemployed minority neighborhood residents for 
direct construction job placement in its agency. In 
addition, the contractor will provide outreach and 
referral services to the Boston Skills Bank for other 
unemployed minorities seeking employment. 

The contractor was selected based upon an eval- 
uation of its proposal submitted in response to a re- 
quest for proposals conducted by the Mayor's 
Office of Jobs and Community Services. Costs 
were determined to be reasonable after an exten- 
sive analysis by JCS staff. Other selection criteria 
include administrative capability, reasonableness 
of cost, the ability to provide the services needed, 
and the ability to serve the targeted population. 

Compensation under the terms of this contract 
shall not exceed $70,041, payment being made 
from funds provided to the City of Boston by the Ex- 
ecutive Office of Economic Affairs/Office of Train- 
ing and Employment Policy to operate minority 
employment initiative programs. The period of per- 
formance shall be from September 1, 1987, until 
June 30, 1988. This request has been delayed due 
to late notification of funding availability from the 
State. 

As this is a negotiated contract at a reasonable" 
cost, based upon an extensive program and pro- 
posal review, I believe that public advertising would 
serve no useful purpose. I, therefore, request per- 
mission to dispense with inviting sealed bids by ad- 
vertising in the City Record, pursuant to authority 
granted under the City of Boston Code, St. 4, s. 5. 
Sincerely, 

Kristen J. McCormack, 
Director. 

Adult Education Services 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
award a contract to the Jackson/Mann Community 
School and Council, Inc., a nonprofit corporation, 
located at 500 Cambridge Street, for the purpose of 
providing adult education services in conjunction 
with city's BostonWorks Program. 



Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will operate its Next Step Vocational Readiness 
program for thirty program participants, providing 
classroom instruction and counseling services 
based upon an evaluation of its refunding proposal 
submitted to the Boston Private Industry Council 
and reviewed by staff of the Mayor's Office of Jobs 
and Community Services. Other selection criteria 
include results of site monitoring visits, an overall 
review of the contractor's performance during the 
prior contract period, administrative capability, rea- 
sonableness of cost, and the ability to serve the tar- 
geted population. 

Compensation under the terms of this contract 
shall not exceed $30,976, payment being made 
from the Community Development Block Grant pro- 
gram. The period of performance shall be from De- 
cember 1, 1987, until June 30, 1988. The 
submission of this letter has been delayed due to 
the length of time involved in determining the avail- 
ability of funds for this program. 

As this is a negotiated contract at a reasonable 
cost, based upon an extensive program and pro- 
posal review, I believe that public advertising would 
serve no useful purpose. I, therefore, request per- 
mission to dispense with inviting sealed bids by ad- 
vertising in the City Record, pursuant to authority 
granted under the City of Boston Code, St. 4, s. 5. 
Sincerely, 

Kristen J. McCormack, 
Director. 

PARKS AND RECREATION DEPARTMENT 
Lighting Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

I respectfully request your permission to dis- 
pense with inviting proposals by advertising in the 
City Record, and to award a contract to Storch As- 
sociates, 1616 Soldiers Field Road, for design serv- 
ices for restoration of pedestrian lighting on the 
Boston Common during the period January 1, 
1 988, to February 29, 1 988, at a cost not to exceed 
$10,000, to be charged to 615-310-7232-0725. 

Storch Associates was awarded the contract for 
design services for restoration of pedistrian lighting 
on the Boston Common based on public advertis- 
ing during the period February 1 , 1986, to October

through a change order but inadvertently the de- 
sign contract was not. Since the time period has 
now run out, your permission is requested to award 
this contract so that Storch Associates can con- 
tinue to provide supplementary services for clerk of 
works until the construction project is completed. 

Because of Storch Associates exemplary deliv-

authority granted under the City of Boston Code, 
St. 4, sec. 5. 

Very truly yours, 

William B. Coughlin, 
Commissioner.

PUBLIC FACILITIES DEPARTMENT 
Design Services 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

Pursuant to a vote of the Public Facilities C 
mission on November 5, 1987, I respectfully 
quest your Honor's written permission to dispi 
with further public advertisement and award a 
tract to Pisani and Associates, a sole proprif 
ship, with offices at 150 Lincoln Street, provi. 
design services for renovations to the Hanr 
Street Public Works Department Yard and Mu 
pal Building in Dorchester. Scope of work to inc 
preliminary drawings, design development, * 
ing drawings and construction supervision. 

Compensation under this contract shall no 
ceed $146,800 (including $55,000 for suppler 
tary services) which is a fixed fee of 7.65 per 
based on an estimated cost of constructic 
$1 ,200,000, which I have determined to be a 
sonable cost for the work to be performed. The 
of this contract shall be for 1 44 weeks from the 
of execution. 

Following the advertisement of this project ii 
Boston Globe on April 27, 1987, and receipt ol 
posals, the contractor was selected on the bat 
a rating system undertaken by the Public Faci 
Designer Selection Committee in accordance 
MGL c. 7, s. 38A 1/2 et seq. The committee e 
ated twelve proposals submitted by the applic 
and determined Pisani & Associates most qua 
and competent to complete said design work' 
numerical matrix rating for a firm reflects the 
bined score of each committee member's rai 
of this firm and thus the recommended firm ha 
lowest number. The numerical matrix rating i 
mary of the three finalists, in order of rank w 
follows: Pisani & Associates — 8; Christie! 
Washington Architects, Inc. — 8; Zeybekoglu 
man Assoc., Inc. — 20. 

Pisani & Associates and Chrisholm & Was 
ton Architects, Inc. ranked equally. Due to thf 1 
cellent references and extensive specia 
experience with Public Works Department 
jects, the committee determined Pisani & Ai 
ates most qualified for said design work. 

I believe Pisani & Associates is qualified t' 
form the services required. 

In view of the technical and professional nat 
the services, and the selection process use*| 
my judgment that further public advertising i 
serve no useful purpose in this instance

ered acceptable unless the general contractor

tion section of this contract, the general contractor 
must give satisfactory assurance that at least 10 
percent of his bid price shall be expended for minor- 
ity business enterprise, if the bid is over $10,000.

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

ered area is Arlington, Boston, Belmont, Brookline,

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 25 
percent of his bid price shall be expended for minor- 
ity business enterprise, if bid is for more than 
$50,000. If the bid is under $50,000, but greater 
than $10,000, then the requirement is 10 percent. 
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.

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.

eral contractor shall agree and shall require that his 
subcontractors agree to the following workforce re- 
quirements (labor).

MAYOR FLYNN NAMES 
DIANE PAYNE AS 
ELDERLY COMMISSIONER 

Mayor Raymond L. Flynn announced 
his selection of seniors advocate Diane 
Payne as Boston's Commissioner on 
Affairs of the Elderly. 

Mrs. Payne, a Roxbury resident and 
mother of three children, is presently 
associate director of the Mayor's Office 
of Neighborhood Services. 

"Diane Payne has worked with Bos- 
ton's neighborhood residents for fifteen 
years," said Mayor Flynn. "During that 
time, she has worked to make sure that 
our elderly residents receive the hous- 
ing, health care, and other essential 
services they require. As my commu- 
nity representative, Diane has worked 
diligently with state and city agencies to 
ensure the delivery of programs vital to 
the health and well-being of all neigh- 
borhood residents." 



A licensed social worker, Payne advo- 
cated for the elderly in Roxbury and 
Dorchester while she was manager of 
the Cooper Community Center's social 
service program in the 1970's and early 
1980's. She received the Community 
Leadership Award of the Massachu- 
setts Black Legislative Caucus in 1987. 

Mayor Flynn expressed his confi- 
dence in Mrs. Payne's ability to en- 
hance the quality of life for Boston's 
senior citizens by recalling the late Sen- 
ator Hubert Humphrey's credo for pub- 
lic service. 

"Hubert Humphrey defined the moral 
test of government as, 

'how it treats those who are in the 
dawn of life, the children; those 
who are in the twilight of life, the 
aged; and those who are in the 
shadows of life — the sick, the 
needy, and the handicapped.' 
"Diane's appointment as commis- 
sioner will help us to carry out this moral 
test," said Mayor Flynn. 

"I am grateful to the Mayor for this ex- 
citing oppurtunity to work on behalf of 
Boston's older citizens," said Diane

THINK ABOUT THESE FACTS . . . 

• When people are killed or dis- 
abled in car crashes, their loved ones 
suffer. Society pays for medical and re- 
habilitation costs, Worker's Compensa- 
tion, and Welfare. 

• In a crash, a properly worn seat 
belt almost guarantees that your inju- 
ries will be less severe. The belt should 
be worn snugly across the shoulder — 
not under the arm and low hips. 

• Statistics show that you are 
twenty-five times more likely to be killed 
if you are thrown from your car. 

• Trying to brace yourself in a 30 
MPH crash is like trying to lift thirty 
times your own weight. 

• A seat belt can actually help you 
get out of a wrecked car, keeping your 
injuries to a minimum. 

• Most fatal accidents occur on 
short trips, within 25 miles of home, at 
speeds under 40 MPH. 

So, buckle up Boston!

jest your Honor's permission to dispense with 
jblic advertising and award a contract to Data-

Orthopedic Instrumentation, etc. 

sar Sir: 

Pursuant to the authority delegated to me by the 
iard of Health and Hospitals. I respectfully re- 
est your Honor's permission to award a contract. 
:hout advertising, to the following vendor: Surge, 
:., Lexington. $20,000; net 30 days. 
A multi-vendor contract was awarded to several

e Prosthesis, and Neurosurgical Products based 
Proposal No. 542. which was advertised in the 
y flecordon May 5. 1 986, and opened on May 22, 
86. for a two-year period from July 1, 1986. 
ough June 30. 1988. 

As quoted in that letter, the decision as to which 
plants are to be bought is made solely by the phy- 
lan based on what he/she deems to be in the best 
erest of his/her patient. Contracts are executed 
h every vendor whose products are acceptable 
the medical staff. 

Surge. Inc is the distributor in this area for Ace 
tdical Products wh ich has a new system of Ortho- 
die Implants which the department feels is the 
st technology available at this time. The cost to 
i city will be no more than what the city is pres- 
lly paying for like products. 
Therefore, in view of the above, and because the 
>t, in my opinion, is reasonable, no benefit would 
re to the city by publicly advertising for bids. 
The contract amount is an approximate figure 
sed on estimated volume The contract period is 



from January 1, 1988, through June 30. 1988

Binding of Journals 

Dear Sir: 

An invitation to bid to provide binding of journals 
for the Medical Library at Boston City Hospital for

fully request your Honor's permission to reject all 
bids and award this contract without advertising to 
Bridgeport National Bindery, Inc . at a cost not to 
exceed $6,000. under the terms and conditions 
stated above 

Very truly yours,

Primary Care 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 enter into a con- 
tract, and thereby make a grant to the following 
Community Health Center in the amount indicated 
for the period January 1, 1988, through June 30, 
1988 

Grantee Corporation. General Hospital Corp.; 
Neighborhood Health Center, MGH-Bunker Hill 
Comm. Health Ctr , Charlestown, amount of grant, 
$10,184 

The purpose of this grant is to enable the afore- 
mentioned participants to meet the responsibility 
placed upon them by the City of Boston Primary 
Care Districting Plan The grant is subject to two 
conditions: First, that the city's contribution be 
matched by the particular grantee corporation by 
either providing funds or services equal in value to 
the city's grant; and secondly, that the Department 
of Health and Hospitals is satisfied that the health 
center and the grantee corporation are agreed on 
the program of primary health care services for 
which these funds shall be spent and their respec- 
tive roles relative to the management of the pro- 
gram. 

Fiscal year 1988 is the first year that the Depart- 
ment of Health and Hospitals will have a contract 
with the Bunker Hill Community Health Center to 
provide primary care services in Charlestown. The 
health center provides high-quality health services 
in a neighborhood that has almost no private physi- 
cians or other acceptable primary care services 
Boston's network of neighborhood health centers 
provide needed services and have had a significant 
impact on the health of people in Boston's neigh- 
borhoods. 

Therefore, because of the professional nature of 
the services to be rendered, because the afore- 
mentioned is particularly suited to provide these 
health care services, and because the cost to the 
city is reasonable, no useful purpose would be 
served by publicly advertising for bids. 



This award is being processed late because the 
request for a contract for these services was sub- 
mitted after January 1 , 1 988 

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 

JOBS AND COMMUNITY SERVICES 
Chinese Youths Services 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
award a contract to Boston Chinese Youth Essen- 
tial Service, Inc., a nonprofit corporation, located at 
1 99 Harrison Avenue Under the terms of the con- 
tract, the contractor will provide a variety of coun- 
seling services to Asian youths who are newcomers 
to this country and considered to be at risk 

The contractor was selected based upon an eval- 
uation of its proposal submitted in response to a re- 
quest for proposals conducted by the Mayor's 
Office of Jobs and Community Services. Costs 
were determined to be reasonable after an exten- 
sive analysis by JCS staff and outside readers. 
Other selection criteria include administrative ca- 
pability, performance under previous contracts, the 
ability to provide the services needed, and the abil- 
ity to serve the targeted population. 

Compensation under the terms of this contract 
shall not exceed $25,000, payment being provided 
by the Executive Office of Communities and Devel- 
opment through the Gateway Cities Program. The 
period of performance shall be from January 1, 
1988, until June 30, 1988. This request has been 
delayed due to the time involved in reaching fund- 
ing decisions. 

As this is a negotiated contract at a reasonable 
cost, based upon an extensive review of proposals 
which conforms to federal procurement require- 
ments, no public purpose would serve by public ad- 
vertising. I, therefore, request permission to 
dispense with inviting sealed bids by advertising in 
the City Record, pursuanfto authority granted un- 
der the City of Boston Code. St. 4, s 5. 

Sincerely, 

Neil H. Gordon, 
Associate Director. 

Nursing Assistance Training 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
award a contract to the Dimock Community Health 
Center, a nonprofit corporation, located at 55 Di- 
mock Street, Roxbury, for the purpose of providing 
education and training services in conjunction with 
the city's BostonWorks Program. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will provide a nursing assistant training program to 
twelve program participants who are currently em- 
ployed as home health care workers, in preparation 
for employment in Boston's acute card facilities. 
The contractor was selected based upon an evalua- 
tion of its refunding proposal submitted to the Bos- 
ton Private Industry Council and review by staff of 
the Mayor's Office of Jobs and Community Serv- 
ices. Other selection criteria include the results of 
site monitoring visits, an overall review of the con- 
tractor's performance during the prior contract per- 
iod, administrative capability, reasonableness of 
cost, and the ability to serve targeted population. 

Compensation under the terms of this contract 
shall not exceed $42,078, payment being made 
from the Community Development Block Grant pro- 
gram. The period of performance shall be from No- 
vember f6, 1987, until June 30, 1988. The 
submission of this letter has been delayed due to 



123 



the length of time involved in determining the availi- 
bility of funds for this program. 

As this is negotiated contract at a reasonable 
cost, based upon an extensive program and pro- 
posal review, I believe that public advertising would 
serve no useful or practical purpose. I, therefore, 
request permission to dispense with inviting sealed 
bids by advertising in the City Record, pursuant to 
authority granted under the City of Boston Code, 
St. 4, s. 5 

Sincerely, 

Neil H. Gordon. 
Associate Director. 

Logos, Flyers, Posters, etc. 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
award a contract to Gene Hurd, an individual resid- 
ing at 22 Edgerly Road, for the purpose of providing 
graphic design services to the Mayor's Office of 
Jobs and Community Services. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will design and assist in the production of logos, fly- 
ers, posters, and other promotional material for the 
JobStarts program administered by Jcs. The con- 
tractor was selected as one of three respondents to 
a legal notice placed in the Boston Globe on Octo- 
ber 3, 1987: 

Gene Hurd, Boston, design: $15-$20 an hour; 
mechanicals: $12-$15 an hour; Rosemary 
Spellman, West Roxbury, design: $20 an hour; me- 
chanicals: $10-12 an hour; Jameson-Teitelbaum 
Designs, Lawrence, design: $56 an hour; mechani- 
cals: $42 an hour. 

Mr Hurd possesses the necessary experience, 
and his rates were the least expensive. 

Compensation under the terms of this contract 
shall not exceed $9,000, payment being made from 
funds received from the Commonwealth of Massa- 
chusetts, Department of Public Welfare. The period 
of performance shall be from January 1 , 1988, until 
June 30, 1988. 

As this is a negotiated contract for professional 
services at a reasonable cost, based upon review of 
Mr. Hurd's qualifications, I believe that further pub- 
lic advertising would serve no useful purpose. I. 
therefore, request permission 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,

Immigrants Employment and Educational Serv- 
ices 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
award a contract to the Jewish Vocational Services, 
Inc., a nonprofit corporation, located at 31 New 
Chardon Street. Under the terms of the contract, 
the contractor will provide educational and employ- 
ment related services to approximately sixty immi- 
grants from the Soviet Union. The contractor will 
also implement and operate a case management 
program for the participants. 

The contractor was selected based upon an eval- 
uation of its proposal submitted to the Mayor's Of- 
fice of Jobs and Community Services. Other 
selection criteria include administrative capability, 
reasonableness of cost, and the ability to serve the 
targeted population 

Compensation under the terms of this contract 
shall not exceed $71 ,335, payment being provided 
to the City of Boston through a Targeted Assistance 



Grant received through the Commonwealth of Mas- 
sachusetts. The period of performance shall be 
from January 1, 1988, until June 30, 1988. This re- 
quest had been delayed due to the time involved in 
reaching funding decisions. 

As this is a negotiated contract at a reasonable 
cost, based upon an extensive program and pro- 
posal review, I believe that public advertising would 
serve no useful purpose I, therefore, request per- 
mission to dispense with inviting sealed bids by ad- 
vertising in the City Record, pursuant to authority 
granted under the City of Boston Code, St. 4, s. 5. 
Sincerely, 

Neil H. Gordon, 
Associate Director. 

Adult Education Services 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission to 
award a contract to the Boston Young Women's 
Christian Association/Aswalos House, a nonprofit 
organization, located at 246 Seaver Street, Dor- 
chester, for the purpose of providing adult educa- 
tion services. 

Under the terms of the contract, the contractor 
will offer adult basic education instruction, and an 
External Diploma Program to thirty-six low-income 
women of the Roxbury/North Dorchester, Matta- 
pan, and Jamaica Plain communities. The contrac- 
tor was selected as it has agreed to assume 
responsibility for the W.E.A.V.E. program currently 
operated by Women, Inc., a nonprofit organization, 
located at 244 Townsend Street, Dorchester. 
Women, Inc. is currently experiencing organiza- 
tional and financial problems, and is unable to oper- 
ate the W.E.A.V.E. program after the end of the 
month. The Aswalos House, with its history of oper- 
ating similar programs and services in the same 
neighborhood, is best suited to assume responsi- 
bility for this program. 

Compensation under the terms of this contract 
shall not exceed $47,636, payment being made 
from the Community Development Block Grant. 
The period of performance shall be from January 1 , 
1988 until June 30, 1988. The submission of this 
letter has been delayed due to the recent determi- 
nation of the need for and the availability of the serv- 
ices of the Aswalos House. 

As this is a negotiated contract at a reasonable 
cost, which will enable the W.E.A.V.E. program to 
continue operating for the remainder of the current 
fiscal year, I believe that public advertising would 
serve no useful purpose. I, therefore, request per- 
mission to dispense with inviting sealed bids by ad- 
vertising in the City Record, pursuant to authority 
granted under the City of Boston Code, St. 4. s. 5. 
Sincerely. 

Neil H. Gordon, 
Associate Director 

LIBRARY DEPARTMENT 
Periodicals and Serials 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

The Board of Trustees in charge of the Library De- 
partment of the City of Boston respectfully requests 
the approval of your Honor for the award of a con- 
tract, without public advertising, to the Faxon Com- 
pany, Inc., for supplying to the Boston Public 
Library periodicals and serials. The Faxon Com- 
pany is to supply each periodical and serial indi- 
cated in the specifications of the contract during the 
period January 1, 1988, through June 30. 1988. In 
addition, this company guarantees that subscrip- 
tions in those periodicals and serials will be main- 
tained, furnished, delivered and serviced for the 
remaining portion of their current terms. 



The Faxon Company, Inc.. has had over ninety 
years of experience in servicing libraries, has a rep 
utation for rendering good service, and has all of its 
records on data processing equipment. Also, this 
company, located as it is near Boston, isconvenien 
when it is necessary to register claims for materials 
not received from publishers and for corrections. 

The matter of service and of continuity of receip 
of periodicals and serials is of the highest impor 
tance. Missing issues, resulting from delays in re 
newing subscriptions, lower the quality of service 
To prevent this gap in service to the public, man' 
libraries have placed "till forbid" orders with thei 
subscription dealers. Under such an arrangemer 
the agency sends to the library in August, eac' 
year, a preliminary invoice which is examined an 
on which any necessary additions or deletions ar 
made. The agency then prepares a final invoio 
and automatically renews with the publishers th 
subscriptions several months in advance of the 
expiration, thus eliminating gaps in the library 
files. This also reduces the amount of paper woi 
involved in the renewing procedure The "till fo 
bid" arrangement was in effect last year in connec. 
tion with the library's 1 987 contract with The Faxo 
Company, Inc. 

Inasmuch as it appears to be in the best interes 
of service to the public and of economy of oper> 
tion, it is recommended that the Boston Public L 
brary periodical and serial subscription for 1 988 b 
placed on a similar "till forbid" basis with the Faxo 
Company, Inc. The company will base its charge 
on the cost to it of each title, plus a service charg 
per title, the same formula used by it computing I 
prices for previous years. For this present contra' 
it is estimated that the total cost will not excee 
$180,624. 

In view of the foregoing, the Board of Trustees 
charge of the Library Department, acting in 
name of and for the City of Boston, has taken tr 
following action to award the contract: 

VOTED, that without public advertising, there t 
entered into with The Faxon Company, Inc., 1 
Southwest Park, Westwood. a contract for suppl 
ing periodicals and serials for the year 1988: ar 
servicing the subscriptions for the individual iten 
throughout the year as specified in the specific 
tions and Appendix A, and subject to the term 
agreements, and conditions set forth in said co 
tract, at a total cost not to exceed $180,624 
Respectfully, 

Arthur Curley, 
Director and Librarian. 

REAL PROPERTY DEPARTMENT 
Heating Systems Installation 

Your Honor: 

I respectfully request your Honor's permission 
award to Consolidated, Quincy, the task of insti 
ing a heating system at 42 Burgess Street, R< 

bury. 

The City of Boston Real Property Departme 
has care, custody and maintenance of a one farr j 
home housing one male adult at 42 Burgess Stref 
Roxbury. This property was acquired through il, 
foreclosure. The owner of the property has (I 
tempted (unsuccessfully) to redeem the propel 
and recently has forfeited his redemption righj 
This home has no heating system and it is our be f j 
that the tenant is using electrical appliances til! 
are in disrepair to heat the premises, which is a vjl 
lation of the state sanitary code. 

Vendors currently under contract with the Ri 
Property Department were asked to submit pfl 
posals to furnish necessary labor and materials! 
a new system. The following proposals were 
ceived: 



124 



Consolidated, Qumcy, $4,685; D&F Plumbing & 
Heating Co.. Jamaica Plain, $4,850; J. McCusker, 
nc. Readville. $5,150. 

In my opinion, the price quoted is a reasonable 
>ne and it does not appear that a lower price could 
lave been obtained by public advertising. The per- 
ad of performance will be January 27 — February 
[ 1988 

The cost of work shall not exceed $4,685. which 
will be paid pursuant to the city's existing contract 
nth this firm, contract 3544-88 for miscellaneous 
ind emergency repairs This contract required the 
Mayor's approval for any single repair of $2,00 or 
nore. 

Respectfully yours, 

J. Edward Roche, 
Commissioner

jr, due to a tax foreclosure. One unit is occupied by 
n elderly male and that unit is without heat. 

The following three electrical contractors cur- 
sntly under contract with the Real Property Depart- 
ien\ were asked to submit proposals to furnish 
ecessary labor and materials for electric heat (oc- 
upied unit only): 

J. L McKeen. Dorchester. $4,600; Obin Electrical, 
amaica Plain. $5,000; Congress Electric. Dor- 
hester. no response 

In my opinion, the price quoted is a reasonable 
ne and it does not appear that a lower price could 
ave been obtained by public advertising The per- 
>d of performance will be February 8 — February 
6, 1988 

The cost of the work shall not exceed $4,600. 
hich will be paid pursuant to the city's existing 
Dntract with this firm, contract 3557-88 for miscel- 
neous and emergency repairs This contract re-

SCHOOL DEPARTMENT 
Self-Insurance Proposal 

[ear Mr Mayor: 

i As superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, 
lespectfully request your authorization to award a 
bntract, without public advertisement, to J H Al- 
fsrt International Insurance Advisors, Inc. of 
laedham Heights, for the period February 15. 
I>88, to February 14, 1989, at a cost not to exceed 
H5.0O0, a price I deem reasonable. 
1 Under the terms of this agreement, the contrac- 
h will evaluate the School Department's self-insur- 
Lce proposal and provide preparation work for 
(ranging renewal of conventional insurance for 
jhool bus fleet, effective July 1 , 1988 On the sub- 
bt of conventional insurance, the following activi- 
I s will be performed: 

Meet with the School Committee to update expo- 
ses and plan a timetable of the process; review 
t3 school bus contract agreements to confirm in- 
i ranee compliance; review any lease or finance 
ireements for insurance implications; draft bid 
• vertisement and place advertisement in the 



Standard publication; drawup insurance specifica- 
tions: Attend bid conference to allocate insurance 
markets to all bidders; supervise the bid effort in re- 
sponse to all bidder questions, in writing, with a 
copy to the School Committee; attend bid opening 
meeting and read all presented bids; analyze pro- 
posals and submit written recommendation to the 
School Committee; review policies for compliance 
with proposal and insurance specifications and is- 
sue review letter. 

The contractor will be paid at rates of $110 to 
$1 50 per hour, depending upon the specific person- 
nel actually utilized, plus reasonable out-of-pocket 
expenses incurred. 

The contractor's fee will be billed in three install- 
ments. The first will be billed following an initial 
meeting with the School Committee to update ex- 
posures and plan the timetable for both the bid 
process and the evaluation of self-insurance The 
first installment amount will be $7,500 The second 
installment, also in the amount of $7,500, will be 
billed on or about July 1. 1988; a third interim install- 
ment will be billed on or about November 15.1 988 
The final billing will be made at the termination of 
the contract and will be for the balance of fees due 
as a result of the application of hourly rates and out- 
of-pocket expenses. Should the actual fee time and 
expenses develop a lower fee than the maximum 
amount proposed, the School Department will be 
billed for the lower fee. 

IN 1981. the School Department requested the 
firm of Alexander Grant and Co., independent audi- 
tors under contract with the School Department to 
audit the school bus contract, to review and make 
recommendations as to the insurance coverage for 
the school bus fleet, which insurance cost approxi- 
mately $550,000, in FY81. Alexander Grant de- 
clined, lacking appropriate staff to perform such 
analysis, but offered to make inquiry among its 
business clients to identify and recommend an in- 
surance consultant who was not associated with 
any insurance company. Alexander Grant recom- 
mended the contractor The contractor furnished a 
list of representative clients; a panel consisting of 
the business manager, director of transportation, 
and general counsel, selected three references 
from the list (Boston University, University of Mas- 
sachusetts, and Tufts University) The general 
counsel contacted each reference and each gave 
an unqualified endorsement of the contractor's 
past performance, indicating that their efforts re- 
sulted in substantial savings in insurance costs. 

The contractor was retained in 1981, in 1983, 
1984, 1985, 1986. again in 1987, and has through 
its advice, effectuated substantial savings in insur- 
ance premium costs, despite adverse claim experi- 
ence, primarily through the design and monitoring 
of a limited self-insurance program for glass losses. 
The contractor has successfully supervised, on 
four occaisions, the bidding process for the pur- 
chase of complex fleet insurance policies. 

Because of the professional nature of the serv- 
ices to be provided under this agreement, and be- 
cause of the contractor's specific and successful 
prior experience in advising the School Depart- 
ment on its school bus insurance requirements, 
and because of the objectivity of the 1 981 initial se- 
lection process, it is my determination that the pub- 
lic interest would not be served by publicly 
advertising for bids. 

Compensation to this vendor for similar services 
during the past three fiscal years is as follows: 1 987 
— $32.580 44; 1986 — $10,000, 1985 — $3,000 

Very truly yours, 

Laval S. Wilson, 
Superintendent. 



Heat Sea! Roll 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

It is necessary that the Department of Planning 
and Engineering purchase a rubber-covered heat 
seal roll for the use at the Central Food Facility of 
the Boston Puiblic Schools. 

The heat seal roll is a replacement part for a ma- 
chine used in the preparation of food for the school 
lunch pi^'am. The part can be obtained from the 
original equipment manufacturer, Plus Container 
Machine, Inc. While the part could possibly be ob- 
tained from another vendor who would still have to 
purchase it from the manufacturer, at an increased 
cost, it is advisable to obtain the part directly from 
the manufacturer. 

Funding for this purchase will be provided by the 
Department of Food Services. 

The period of the contract will be from February 
16. 1988. to April 15, 1988. 

I request your approval of my action in awarding a 
contract, without advertising, to Plus Container Ma- 
chine Inc.. Illinois, in an amount not to exceed 
$3,000 In this instance I do not believe that public 
advertising would serve any useful purpose. 
Respectfully yours, 

Paul W Mooney, 
Senior Structural Engineer. 
Leadership Training 
Dear Mr. Mayor: 

On behalf of the Boston Public Schools, I request 
your authorization for the award of a contract to 
Youth Enrichment Services, located at 412 Massa- 
chusetts Avenue. This contract shall be in effect 
during the period from February 8, 1988, to June 
30, 1988, and shall occur at a cost not to exceed 
$8,730, which I have deemed to be reasonable. On 
July 21 , 1987. the School Committee approved all 
of the chapter 636 FY'88 proposals for the sum of 
$5,128,956 Youth Enrichment Services' portion as 
is related to that amount is $8,730. 

The contractor will provide leadership training 
sessions for up to 31 5 students from District C. The 
training sessions will be sequenced with an activity 
so that students acquire self confidence and moti- 
vation skills and interact positively with other stu- 
dents of all races. The activities consist of skiing, 
biking and hiking trips preceded by an hour of orien- 
tation. 

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 633 (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 serv- 
ices to be provided under this agreement and the 
expertise of the contractor in providing such serv- 
ices, 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. 

Compensation to this vendor over the past three 
fiscal years in the form of unadvertised contracts is 
as follows: 1985 — $31,000; 1986 — $9,500. 
Very truly yours, 

Laval S Wilson, 
Superintendent

Videotape Documentary 

Dear Mr. Mayor: 

As superintendent of the Boston Public Schools, 
I respectfully request your authorization for the 
award of a contract to Robert Newman, d/b/a Au- 
dio-Visual Works, located in Westwood. 

This contract shall be in effect during the period 
from March 15, 1988, to May 1, 1988, and shall oc- 
cur at a cost not to exceed $6,000, which I have 
deemed to be reasonable. Compensation for these 
services will be $25 per hour for taping or editing 
and $1 per hour for other production services. 

Under the terms of this contract, the contractor 
will provide on videotape a fourteen to eighteen- 
minute documentary on the Chapter I Program of 
the Boston School Department. This videotape will 
be used as part of the presentation of the Boston 
Chapter I Program at the annual conference of the 
International Reading Association to be held in To- 
ronto, Canada, from May 1 through May 5, 1988. 

The honor of this invitation to present at this presti- 
gious conference comes to the City of Boston and 
the Boston School Department because the Chap- 
ter I Program has been identified as an outstanding 
program by the United States Secretary of Educa- 
tion. The use of this videotape wMI help to make this 
presentation one which will be creditable to the city 
and to the School Department. 

The contractor was selected to provide the above 
services because he has carried out similar proj- 
ects in the Boston Public Schools and can provide 
these services expeditiously. Some of the file foot- 
age generated by these earlier projects will be used 
by the supplier under the proposed contract at con- 
siderable saving The contractor would be the sole 
supplier of this material. This service will be at no 
cost to the city as it will be charged to the chapter I 
budget. 

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. 

This is the first contractual agreement between 
Robert Newman, d/b/a Audio-Visual Works, and 
the Boston Public Schools. 

Very truly yours, 

Laval S.Wilson, 
Superintendent. 



CONTRACTS AMENDED 

The Mayor has approved the 
amending of contracts, based on 
the following information: 

FIRE DEPARTMENT 
Automotive Vehicles Repairs 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

On July 21 , 1 987, your Honor approved an award 
of a contract based on public advertising for bids, 
for Repetitive Service Contracts, Item 27, for vehi- 
cles under the care and custody of the Fire Depart- 
ment at a cost not to exceed $130,000, during the 
period of July 1, 1987, to June 30, 1988. 

Your approval is requested to amend this con- 
tract to provide additional services for fire appa- 
ratus, truck and automobile repair work, and add 
one additional vendor to the current list of vendors 
at no additional cost — New England Brake Center, 
708 Columbia Road, Dorchester. 

The reason for lateness in this submission is due 



to the fact that another vendor was needed immedi- 
ately in the local area to assist in the repairs of small 
cars. The addition of New England Brake will assist 
us greatly in the repairs of these small cars. 
Very truly yours, 

Leo D. Stapleton, 
Fire Commissioner. 

HEALTH AND HOSPITALS DEPARTMENT 
Health Care 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 contract with 
Roxbury Comprehensive Community Health Cen- 
ter, Inc., 435 Warren Street, Roxbury, matching 
grant for primary health care services, for the per- 
iod July 1, 1987, through June 30, 1988, at a cost 
not to exceed $77,500. 

This amendment will increase the contract sum 
by $1 3,000, thereby increasing the city's total liabil- 
ity under this contract as so amended, to an amount 
not to exceed $90,500. 

This amendment represents the allocation of 
prenatal initiative funds targeted to reduce infant 
mortality rates in the neighborhood by expanding 
maternal and child health services provided by the 
community health centers. 

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

Very truly yours, 

Lewis W. Pollack, 
Commissioner. 
JOBS AND COMMUNITY SERVICE 
Courier Services 
Dear Mayor Flynn: 

On or about October 21, 1987, your Honor ap- 
proved the award of a contract based on public ad- 
vertising to Skyline Communications, Inc., located 
at 1 86 Lincoln Street, to provide courier services to 
the Mayor's Office of Jobs and Community Serv- 
ices. Compensation was for an amount not to ex- 
ceed $7,500, payment being provided by the Job 
Training Partnership Act for the period July 21, 
1987, through June 30, 1988. 

Your approval is requested to amend this con- 
tract in terms of compensation. At the time of the 
submission of the original contract, it had been the 
intent of JCS to begin to develop its own capacity for 
courier delivery services. Those plans have been 
delayed, and the contractor has provided, and will 
continue to provide additional services to JCS not 
anticipated at the time of the submission of the orig- 
inal contract. I, therefore, request your Honor's per- 
mission to increase compensation in the amount of 
$7,500 funds being provided by JTPA. Total com- 
pensation under the terms of this contract, as 
amended, shall not exceed $15,000. 

As this amendment is for the continuation of pro- 
fessional services at a reasonable cost which con- 
forms to federal procurement requirements, no 
public purpose would be served by formal advertis- 
ing. I, therefore, request permission to dispense 
with inviting sealed bids by advertising in the City 
Record, pursuant to authority granted under the 
City of Boston Code, St. 4, s. 5. 

Sincerely, 

Neil H. Gordon, 
Associate Director 

Support Services to Haitian Youths 

Dear Mayor Flynn: 

On or about August 6, 1987, your honor ap- 
proved the award of a contract to the League of Hai- 
tian Families. Inc.. a nonprofit corporation, located 



at 169 Massachusetts Avenue, for the provision 
support services to approximately 200 Haitic 
youths to assist them in adjusting to the Bostc 
Public School system. Compensation was for < 
amount not to exceed $25,000, payment beir 
made from funds received from the State's Exec 
tive Office of Communities and Development und 
the Gateway Cities Program for the period of July 
1987, until June 30. 1988. 

Your approval is requested to amend this co 
tract in terms of compensation. Additional funi 
are requested to allow the contractor to hire admi 
istrative and/or support staff to improve the age 
cy's management capabilities in operating tht 
existing programs. I. therefore request permissii 
to increase compensation in the amount 
$25,156, funds being provided by EOCD throu 
the Gateway Cities Program. Total compensate 
under the terms of this contract, as amended, sh 
not exceed $50, 1 56. All other terms and conditio 
of the original contract shall remain the same. 

As this is a negotiated contract at a reasonat 
cost, based upon an extensive proposal review 
believe that public advertising would serve no us 
ful purpose. I, therefore, request permission to d 
pense with inviting sealed bids by advertising in tl 
City Record, pursuant to authority granted uno 
the City of Boston Code, St. 4, s. 5. 

Sincerely. 

Neil H. Gordon, 
Associate Director

On or about July 20, 1 987, your Honor approvi

Service Center, a nonprofit corporation, located 
20 Chestnut Hill Avenue, Brighton, for the purpo

$39,000, payment being made from the Comrr 
nity Development Block Grant program for the pt 
iod of July 1, 1987, until June 30, 1988. Tr 
contract is administered by the Trustees of Hea 
and Hospitals.

tract in terms of compensation. The contractor's 
cility at 20 Chestnut Hill Avenue will be undergoi 
extensive renovations this winter. The Center v 
be temporarily relocated to 404 Washington Stre 
in Brighton, in order to allow the continuation 
services. Additional funds are requested for ren 
expenses. I, therefore, request permission to 
crease compensation in the amount of $5,000. ' 
tal compensation under the terms of this contra

remain the same. 

As this is a negotiated contract at a reasonali 
cost, based upon an extensive program and p 
posal review, I believe that public advertising woJ 
serve no useful purpose. I, therefore, request p 
mission to dispense with inviting sealed bids by I 
vertising in the City Record, pursuant to author 
granted under the City of Boston Code. St. 4, s. 
Sincerely, 

Neil H. Gordon,

g further study of future funding availability from

/ed due to the late notification of funding availibil-
