The revenues and expenditures from the tax are to be regularly reviewed by a Citizen’s Advisory Committee to ensure the funds collected are expended for the purposes specified in the Measure AV Ballot language. The City Council shall appoint a seven member committee and by resolution, adopt guidelines for the duties of the Citizen’s Advisory Committee.

The online system to submit your application is primarily used for employment purposes, but has been somewhat modified to accept applications for board/commission/committee appointments.
