Measure S Oversight Committee
Role of CommitteeThe Measure S Oversight Committee is a new independent citizen’s committee comprised of five (5) residents to oversee the receipt and expenditure of the 1/4-cent sales tax revenue.
Its charge is to review information on the amount of tax generated and how it is used, and to make recommendations to the San Mateo City Council on the use of the tax revenue. The new Measure S Oversight Committee will provide strict fiscal accountability for how funds are spent.
Use of Funds
Taxes levied through Measure S can only be used locally in San Mateo City. It is a general tax, meaning the revenue can be used for any municipal governmental purpose. However, no other governmental agency can appropriate these funds. For instance, funds may be used to repair City infrastructure, help improve the City's streets, continue emergency medical services and police protection services, maintain senior and children services, library services, public works, and parks and recreation services. The measure does not bind the City to use the proceeds of the tax for any particular services, facilities, or programs.
