Measure V
Transportation Expenditure Plan - Citizens Oversight Committee

 

NOTICE OF VACANCY FOR THE CITY OF ATWATER REPRESENTATIVE ON TRANSPORTATION EXPENDITURE PLAN - CITIZENS OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE

Measure V - Citizens Oversight Committee Application (Application Deadline – Tuesday, April 18, 2017)

 

Measure V is Merced County’s transportation sales tax that was passed by voters in November 2016. It is estimated that the measure program will generate $15 million in new revenue annually for a total of $450 million through the life of the measure. As the Local Transportation Authority for Merced County, MCAG will administer the Measure V program.

TRANSPORTATION EXPENDITURE PLAN - CITIZENS OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE
The Measure V Transportation Expenditure Plan (Plan) requires the formation of a Citizens Oversight Committee to ensure the measure program is implemented as outlined in the Plan. The committee will review financial and performance audits, reports from member agencies, annual receipts and other documents necessary to assess the program’s consistency with the Plan. The committee will also prepare an annual report to inform the public how measure funds were spent. A full list of committee responsibilities can be found in the attached Measure V Expenditure Plan - Appendix B.

Committee Formation and Meeting Schedule
The Plan states that the committee will be formed within 6 months from the approval of the measure in November 2016 and meetings will commence when measure revenues are recommended for expenditure. Based on these requirements, the committee must be formed by May 2017 and the first meeting is anticipated to be held in the summer of 2017. The committee must hold one formal meeting annually with additional meetings scheduled as needed.

Membership & Selection
The Committee will consist of 14 members with 7 nominated by the six cities and County of Merced and 7 selected by the MCAG Governing Board through a separate application process. This application process is intended to identify candidates for nomination from each of six cities and the County of Merced. The MCAG Governing Board will appoint all committee members by May 18, 2017.

Eligibility and Term of Membership
Applicants must be U.S. citizens 18 years of age or older, a qualified elector residing within the corporate limits of the City of Atwater, and are not public employees at any state, county or local city agency, or an elected official at any level of government. Committee members will be required to submit an annual statement of financial disclosure consistent with Fair Political Practices Commission rules and regulations.

Committee terms will be two years with no member serving more than 8 years on the committee. In an effort to maintain committee member consistency, during the first two years of the committee, terms will be staggered with 7 of the members to serve one year term, 7 of the members to serve a two year term. The length of the first terms will be determined via random selection. Proxy voting will not be permitted.
