Agenda Category: CONSENT AGENDA
Agenda Item Title: Measure B Parcel Tax Oversight Committee Member
Person Responsible: Rebecca Westover, Ed.D., Chief Business Officer
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 two occasions and inserted articles in the school newsletters. The District will continue to accept applications to bring the Board of Trustees until we have a full committee of seven.
Five members of the public submitted an application for the Parcel Tax Oversight Committee (PTOC):
- Braid Pezzaglia
- Cleave Frink
- Jonathan Pettey, Ed.D.
- Sara Kopit-Olson
- T. Priyangi Fernando
With Board action, staff will convene the Parcel Tax Oversight Committee (PTOC) for the 2019-2020 school year.
That the Board of Trustees approve the proposed members of the Measure B Parcel Tax Oversight Committee for 2019-2020.
