Measure I Advisory Committee Applications Now Being Accepted
Belmont voters approved Measure I, Belmont Streets and City Services Measure, a half-cent sales tax in November 2016. As part of the Measure I implementation process, the City of Belmont is seeking citizens to serve on the Measure I Citizen’s Advisory Committee. The Committee will consist of three to five members, and appointments will be for up to three years unless otherwise determined by the City Council. The Committee will meet twice annually – once to be briefed on the annual budget (mid-year) and again to review the Measure I Audit Report.
The main duties of the Advisory Committee will be to review the annual audit prepared by the City’s independent auditor related to the prior fiscal year’s collection and expenditure of Measure I revenue, and to transmit a report to the City Council regarding the accuracy of the auditor’s findings. In order to preserve the integrity and independence of the advisory process, Committee members will not have a role in determining the use of revenue generated by Measure I.
To apply for this committee and to have an opportunity to make a contribution to your community, fill out the application form available on the website (www.belmont.gov/measure-I) or from the City Clerk or City Manager’s Office (One Twin Pines Lane), and return it to the City Clerk’s Office no later than 5:00 PM on Friday, May 26, 2017. Applicants must live in Belmont.
For more information, contact the City Clerk’s Office at 650-595-7413, email@example.com, or the City Manager’s Office at 650-595-7408.
