Can you tell me more about the Measure G Citizens' Oversight Committee?

Answer

If voters say Yes to Measure G to fix our roads and reduce traffic, a Citizens' Oversight Committee will be designated as the "Measure G Transportation Safety and Investment Plan Oversight Committee." The Expenditure Plan Oversight Committee shall include, at a minimum, representatives who are residents of the City of Hollister, the City of San Juan Bautista, and the unincorporated areas of San Benito County. They shall fairly represent the geographical, social, cultural and economic diversity of the County to ensure maximum benefits for roads and transportation users. Information and input from outside expert sources and staff will be solicited as necessary. Members shall be volunteers appointed by the locally elected Board of Directors and shall be residents who are neither elected officials of any government, not employees from any agency or organization that either oversees or benefits from the proceeds of the Roads and Transportation Safety Investment Plan. The Citizens' Oversight Committee shall meet at least once by no more than four times per year, and will serve staggered two year terms.
