Measure L is the Transportation Ordinance and Expenditure Plan approved by Stanislaus County voters on November 8, 2016 . The measure raised the sales tax in Stanislaus County on April 1, 2017, by one-half cent for a total period of 25 years to improve our local streets and roads, improve connectivity and reduce congestion.
Measure L includes strong taxpayer safeguards to ensure that the projects and programs approved by the voters are funded and delivered. A Citizens Oversight Committee is being created to provide an enhanced level of accountability for expenditures made under the Plan to ensure that all voter mandates are carried out and that the financial integrity and performance of the program is maintained. The Committee will include one representative from each municipal agency, selected by the agency.
Measure L Citizens Oversight Committee candidates will be chosen by the City Council or Board of Supervisors they represent. All applications will be sent to StanCOG and then will be provided to the member agencies for their review.
The terms for the committee members will begin July 1, 2017. The representatives will serve three to five-year terms which expire between June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2022. This is a volunteer position and no monetary compensation will be paid to committee members.
