Proposed Amendment to the Orange County Local Transportation Authority Measure M2 Ordinance No. 3

overview

Overview

The Renewed Measure M Transportation Ordinance and Investment Plan Ordinance No. 3 requires an independent Taxpayer Oversight Committee to review annual audits and make a determination whether the Orange County Local Transportation Authority is proceeding in accordance with what was promised to the voters. In addition, it requires the Chair of the Taxpayer Oversight Committee to provide an annual certification of whether revenues have been spent in compliance with the Renewed Measure M Transportation Investment Plan. An amendment is being proposed to provide additional clarity to the well-established functions and responsibilities of the Taxpayer Oversight Committee and the Chair of the Taxpayer Oversight Committee.
