The City Council recently announced a recruitment for the Measure V Oversight Committee to fill three openings, consisting of two Concord resident positions and one position from either the business community or a Concord resident, for four-year terms ending December 31, 2027. The deadline for applications to the City Clerk is Friday, Nov. 3, at 5 p.m.
The Measure V Oversight Committee fulfills two areas of responsibility each of the years that the Measure V 1% rate use and transaction tax is collected:
- Review the City's annual audit report, including the Measure V tax revenue and expenditures; and
- Provide recommendations to the City Council on the use of Measure V 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.
Measure V update mailed
To keep Concord residents and business owners apprised of how the City is investing Measure V funds, staff recently compiled and mailed the second annual Measure V update, highlighting a variety of projects that have been made possible with this funding.
Measure V, which generates about $32 million annually, is the one-cent use and transaction tax approved by voters in November 2020.
The update features information about major construction projects, a map of upcoming roadwork, and an update on the development of City's homeless strategic plan. It was mailed out on Sept. 25, 2023.
