The ballot language for Measure B, the parcel tax for the Mountain View Whisman School District, requires the appointment of an independent citizen's oversight committee. The ballot language for the parcel tax states: "Independent Oversight Committee...shall be appointed or designated by the Board to ensure that the special tax proceeds are spent for their authorized purposes, and to report annually to the Board and the public regarding the expenditure of such funds."
The District has advertised in the local newspaper on three occasions and inserted articles in the school newsletters.
Four members of the public submitted an application for the Parcel Tax Oversight Committee (PTOC):
1. Braid Pezzaglia
2. Cleave Frink
3. Betsy Fowler
4. Hafsa Mirza
With Board action, staff will convene the Parcel Tax Oversight Committee (PTOC) for the 2018-2019 school year.
The application form is attached to this Board item, and the District encourages any interested community member to apply. The Measure C Parcel Tax Oversight Committee recommended the Measure B PTOC to strive for seven members.
That the Board of Trustees approve the proposed members of the Measure B Parcel Tax Oversight Committee for 2018-2019.
