Transportation Watchdog Committee report
Submitted By Tess Lengyel
On August 30, 2012, the Citizens Watchdog Committee (CWC) of the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) released its 10th Annual Report to the Public. The report describes the committee's activities and provides an update on the delivery of programs and projects funded by Measure B, Alameda County's voter-approved half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements.
The CWC Annual Report notes that audited income and expenditures were in compliance with specific caps, and that the auditors did not identify any accounting concerns. The report also provides an update on the progress of transportation programs and projects.
In fiscal year 2010-2011, Alameda CTC received $105.4 million in revenue, and expended $140.8 million as follows:
$54.4 million for public transit, including operations, capital investments and special transportation for seniors and people with disabilities
$52.4 million for highway and streets projects
$28.7 million for cities and the County for local transportation improvements, including local streets and roads, and bike and pedestrian projects.
$3.6 million for general administration.
$1.7 million for direct program and project management and oversight.
Approximately 60 percent of the sales tax revenues, minus administrative costs, funds programs, and approximately 40 percent funds capital projects. For more information, visit www.alamedactc.org.
