Subject: Approval of the Revised Aging and Adult Services Warehouse Cost Recovery Schedule

Adopt a resolution authorizing the revision of the Aging and Adult Services Warehouse Cost Recovery Schedule.

Aging and Adult Services (AAS) manages a warehouse utilized by its programs, including the Public Guardian and Public Administrator, in which the personal property of conserved and deceased clients is stored before it is auctioned off to pay for a conservatee's care or distributed to heirs of deceased clients, in accordance with the California Probate Code. The existence of the warehouse expedites the sale of real properties because AAS staff does not need to wait for a third party to inventory and auction the personal property of conservatees or decedents.

The cost of warehouse services is covered by: (1) the amount of revenue recovered through warehouse charges, and (2) Net County Cost. In FY 2017-18, approximately 15 percent of the cost of warehousing was covered by these fees.

AAS utilized the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and compiled market rate pricing data to provide similar types of services in the Bay Area to assess the appropriateness and proposed rates to the new Cost Recovery Schedule. Since 2013, the regional CPI has increased by 18 percent and the market rates of similar services provided in the private sector are about 20 to 25 percent higher than the current rates. Based on these factors AAS proposes to increase current rates by 15 percent as follows:

Current Rate
Proposed Rate
Truck Hours
$20.00 / hour
Van Hours
$15.00 / hour
Man Hours
$35.00 / hour
$40.00 / hour
Vault Rental - Full
$80.00 / month
Vault Rental - Half
$40.00 / month
