Meeting Date: June 06, 2017
AGENDA ITEM: Resolution Nominating an Individual for Appointment to the Measure V Citizens Oversight Committee.
MEETING DATE: June 6, 2017
PREPARED BY: Ruben Chavez, Acting Interim City Manager Jose M. Sanchez, City Attorney
Staff recommends that the City Council adopt a resolution nominating an individual for appointment to the Measure V Citizens Oversight Committee.
On November 8, 2016, the voters of Merced County adopted a 30 year 1/2 cent sales tax, the proceeds of which are dedicated for transportation and related infrastructure projects. That tax is estimated to generate $15,000,000 in new revenue annually. The Merced County Association of Governments (“MCAG”) is responsible for the administration of the program.
Additionally, there is a Measure V Citizens Oversight Committee that is responsible for assessing the program’s consistency with the voter-approved Transportation Expenditure Plan.
The Measure V Citizen Oversight Committee is comprised of 14 members. Out of the 14 members 7 must fill specific rolls, such as a representative of the building industry and a representative of the agriculture industry. Those 7 members are appointed directly by the MCAG Board. The 7 remaining members are nominated by the jurisdictions within Merced County. Each city in Merced County, and the County itself, may nominate 1 person for appointment by MCAG to the Measure V Citizen Oversight Committee.
In order to serve on the Measure V Citizen Oversight Committee, an individual must be:
1. A United States Citizen at least 18 years of age or older;
2. A resident of Merced County; and
3. Not an elected official or a public employee of any state, county or local agency.
All members of the Measure V Citizens Oversight Committee will be required to submit statements of financial disclosure to the Fair Political Practices Committee. Members will serve 2 year terms, with no member serving more than 8 total years on the Committee. However, during the first 2 years of the Committee, 7 members will be randomly selected to serve 1 year terms, in order to stager member terms going forward.
The City’s nomination will be submitted to MCAG for formal appointment to the Committee.
