Two vital public committees that review OCTA programs to help ensure that OCTA continues delivering on its commitment to implement an effective, balanced and sustainable transportation system will be accepting applications for new members.
Taxpayer Oversight Committee
The Taxpayer Oversight Committee includes 11 members that monitor OCTA’s use of funds from OC Go (also known as Measure M), ensuring that all revenue collected is spent on voter-approved transportation projects. OC Go improves and preserves Orange County’s quality of life, keeping people moving while minimizing impacts to the environment.
Positions on the committee are open for residents of the Second and Third Supervisorial Districts of Orange County. The Second District consists of Costa Mesa, Cypress, Huntington Beach, La Palma, Los Alamitos, Newport Beach, Seal Beach, Stanton and portions of Buena Park and Fountain Valley. It also includes the unincorporated area of Rossmoor. The Third District consists of Orange, Tustin, Villa Park, Yorba Linda and portions of Anaheim and Irvine.
Applications for a three-year committee term, July 2020 to June 2023, will be accepted through May 1. Applicants must be Orange County residents, at least 18 years old and live in either the Second or Third District that they will represent and are screened by the Grand Jurors of Orange County.
Applications for the volunteer position are available at octa.net/TOC.
Citizens Advisory Committee
The 34-member Citizens Advisory Committee provides input on a range of transportation projects, studies and outreach activities.
Appointed by OCTA’s Board of Directors, the committee’s responsibilities include identifying opportunities for community input, serving as a liaison between the public and OCTA, and participating in roundtable discussions.
OCTA is seeking individuals with a demonstrated interest in community activities and transportation issues who are willing to dedicate at least 15 hours per year to meetings and activities.
This is an unpaid volunteer position and committee members are asked to commit to a two-year term. Candidates must be at least 18 years old and live in Orange County.
