MEASURE F OVERSIGHT/CITIZENS FINANCE COMMITTEE BACKGROUND

The Measure F ordinance, approved by the voters in November 2010, added a 1/2 cent to the City's sales tax starting on April 1, 2011 and ending on March 31, 2016. The ordinance also required the establishment of an Oversight Committee of seven City residents to review and report on the revenue and expenditure of Measure F funds.

At the February 22, 2011 Council, City staff presented a proposed resolution to the Council.  The staff report for this presentation is available here.

At that same meeting, the City Council adopted this resolution formally establishing the Measure F Oversight/Citizens Finance Committee.

MEASURE F OVERSIGHT/CITIZENS FINANCE COMMITTEE RESPONSIBILITIES

The Committee has two roles.  The first is as the Measure F Oversight Committee.  The second is as the Citizens Finance Committee (which replaces the former Citizens Budget Committee). 

The Committee's responsibilities for each role are outlined below:

Measure F Oversight Responsibilities:

1. Discuss and provide input to staff on Measure F-related budget proposals.

2. Review and report on the revenue generated, expenditures made and use of Measure F funds from the tax adopted by the Measure F ordinance.

3. Present the report referenced in (2) to the City Council and make it available to the public annually.

4. Comment on any concerns regarding the appropriateness of Measure F related expenditure allocations.

5. Comment on status of efforts to achieve fiscal sustainability.

Citizens Finance Responsibilities:

1. Review existing fiscal policies and/or recommend new fiscal policies to the City Council; including guidelines for the use of fund balances, surpluses and other reserves.

2. Review budget assumptions and budget process.

3. Review the City's financial status quarterly.

4. Collaborate with City staff to determine long-term financial needs and obligations.

5. Collaborate with City staff to review all reasonable strategies which either enhance revenues or decrease expenditures as methods for reducing and ultimately eliminating the structural deficit and achieving fiscal sustainability.

6. Collaborate with staff on strategies to encourage public information and communication regarding the City’s financial situation and options for improving the City’s financial health.
