Recruitment open for Measure Q Oversight Committee

The Concord City Council is seeking a resident and a business owner to serve on the Measure Q Oversight Committee for four-year terms ending December 31, 2021. The deadline for applications is Friday, Nov. 3 at 5 p.m.

The Measure Q Oversight Committee consists of five members, at least one representing the business community, at least three residents of the City of Concord, and a fifth member from either category. The terms of business representative Brandy Leidgen and resident member Brian Beckon expire on Dec. 31.

Each year that the Measure Q half-cent use and transaction tax is collected, the Measure Q Oversight Committee reviews the City's annual audit report, which includes Measure Q revenue and expenditures, and provides recommendations to the City Council on the use of Measure Q revenue.

The committee produces a report that records the results of its review of the City's audit and its recommendations for expenditure of the revenue generated from the tax.  The report is presented to the Council at a public meeting and is a public record.

Application forms are available at the City's website at
