Call for Applications: Independent Citizens Oversight Committee

Submitted By San Francisco Restoration Authority

Measure AA is expected to generate $25 million annually for San Francisco Bay restoration over the next 20 years. Funding from this voter-approved measure will allow for the restoration of thousands of acres of natural habitat for wildlife, support our local economy, improve access to public lands, address flooding issues, and create thousands of new jobs.

The AuthorityÕs Governing Board seeks six individuals to serve on the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee. The Committee has three main roles: 1) Annually review the AuthorityÕs conformance with Measure AA; 2) Review the AuthorityÕs audits and expenditure and financial reports; 3) Publish an annual report of its findings, which will be posted on the AuthorityÕs website.

The Board seeks committee members from all four Bay Area regions (North Bay, East Bay, South Bay and West Bay) with special subject matter expertise. Each member of the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee must possess expertise in one or more of the following:
¥ Water quality
¥ Pollution reduction
¥ Habitat restoration
¥ Flood protection
¥ Improvement of public access to the San Francisco Bay
¥ Financing of these objectives.

Ineligibility Factors for Membership: No person may serve on the Independent Citizens Oversight Committee who: 1) Is an elected official or government employee; 2) Has had or could have a financial interest in a decision of the Authority; or 3) Is affiliated with an organization associated with a member of the Governing Board.
