2016 Measure B Citizens' Oversight Committee

2016 Measure B (“Measure B”), approved by Santa Clara County voters in November 2016, enacted a thirty-year one-half cent sales tax for transportation improvements in the county. The Measure B ballot specified that “an independent citizens’ oversight committee shall be appointed to ensure that the funds are being expended consistent with the approved Program.” The ballot also listed the specific duties and responsibilities of the citizens’ oversight committee.
 
The 2016 Measure B Citizens’ Oversight Committee (“2016 MBCOC”) is comprised of eight members appointed from defined areas of expertise and that possess required experience. All 2016 MBCOC members must be registered voters of Santa Clara County, cannot hold elected or appointed office, and cannot be VTA staff or its Member Agencies (the 15 cities/towns in the county and the County of Santa Clara).
 
The Committee meeting schedule has not been finalized, but the Committee must meet at least once per quarter. Meetings will be held at the VTA River Oaks Campus, 3331 North First Street, in Conference Room B-106, or as otherwise posted.
