Things To Know: Measure A Oversight Committee Meeting Feb 4

First meeting of Measure A Oversight Committee takes place Tuesday, Feb. 4, at College of San Mateo

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – The Measure A Oversight Committee, which was created following voters’ approval of a half-cent countywide sales tax in November 2012, will meet for the first time on Tuesday, February 4.

The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. at the College of San Mateo, College Heights Conference Room, Building 10, Room 468, 1700 W. Hillsdale Blvd., San Mateo, 94402.

More than 65 percent of voters in November 2012 approved Measure A, which called for “an annual audit of the general fund revenues” generated by the half-cent sales tax. The tax took effect in April 2013.

The Board of Supervisors appointed 10 community members to the oversight committee, two from each supervisorial district. Those members will take the oath of office on Tuesday.
