Who will be on the community review panel?

To ensure accountability for the expenditure of Community Safety payroll tax, the City Manager has convened a Community Safety Citizen Advisory Board. This group will review the use of payroll tax funds and report on the City’s use of the tax revenue each year. In addition, after seven years the board will conduct a comprehensive review of the City’s community safety system, use of the payroll tax revenues, and compliance with the ordinance. All reports will be provided to the City Council and public.
