City Accepting Measure D Applications

On November 8, 2016, seventy-two percent of Martinez voters approved Measure D to increase the sales and transaction tax by an additional one-half (0.50%) percent for 15 years to fund roadway projects. The City of Martinez is now accepting interest applications for the Measure D Citizen's Oversight Committee as follows: 

1) To appoint four members of the public who will, along with the city treasurer, be charged with reviewing the city’s expenditures of Measure D proceeds to ensure the funds are spent in compliance with the requirements of the measure adopted by Martinez voters. 
2) Ideal candidates include individuals with business and/or community service experience; financial experience is also preferred. 
3) An Interest Form application for this committee will be accepted until March 3, 2017, (or later if necessary). The mayor will review the applications and make appointment recommendations to the city council at the March 15, 2017, council meeting. 

For additional information or to obtain a hardcopy of the Interest Form for the Measure D Citizen’s Oversight Committee, please contact the City Clerk Office at 525 Henrietta Street, Martinez, CA 94553, or call (925) 372-3512. Interest Forms may also be downloaded from the city website:
