Measure HH Oversight Committee Application/Interviews

Posted on February 27, 2017 at 12:28 PM by Communications Team

With the passage of Measure HH – Essential City Services, City Council has approved a resolution establishing the Measure HH – Essential City Services Oversight Committee, setting purpose, scope of responsibility, composition, structure and other related items at the February 21, 2017, City Council Meeting.

Committee Purpose: The purpose of the Measure HH Oversight Committee will be to review, at a policy level, the City’s annual audited financial statement; mid-year budget report and proposed annual general fund operating budget in regards to the receipt and expenditure of the fiscal year’s one-cent transactions and use (sales) tax (Measure HH – Essential City Services) revenue in relation to the City’s adopted “Responsible Spending Pledge”. The committee will communicate its findings to the public and the City Council twice a year for the first three years then annually.

Committee Composition: The Committee shall consist of five members, at least one member must actively represent the business community representing a business located within Fountain Valley; at least one member must be an active senior resident (age 65 or older); at least one member must have voted for Measure HH; at least one member must have voted against Measure HH; the fifth member will be a community member at-large; and one alternate. All members must be at least 18 years of age and reside within the State of California and be residents of the City of Fountain Valley. All members shall be registered voters.

Committee Member Terms of Office: Staff recommends that member’s hold annual staggered terms of three years. This will make the Committee easier to administer because it will fall into the City’s usual annual committee recruitment process. The initial set of terms will be less than the normal term in order to get into alternating expiring terms. All subsequent terms will be for three years until the Committee disbands in June 2038.
