as the floor cleaning program, and the proposed toilet cleaning program
for which three new positions are being requested.

the Courtyard Infill project. An adequate number of staff is needed to
accommodate all needs on a timely basis. Frequently, day laborers must
be called away from one job to assist or begin another. As a result,
