The City of Chula Vista is accepting applications for a District 3 representative on the Measure A Citizen’s Oversight Committee (COC). Measure A is the half-cent sales tax measure to fund public safety staffing and services that was passed by Chula Vista voters in June 2018. Collection of the tax began in October 2018 and has since helped to fund several new firefighters, police officers and dispatchers with more planned.
Each of the four City council districts in Chula Vista is represented by an appointed citizen on the Measure A COC. A new representative from District 3 is needed to fill a current vacancy on the 12-member Committee. Interested parties are asked to view the requirements and apply by December 6 at https://www.chulavistaca.gov/departments/city-clerk/boards-commissions.
The Measure A COC regularly meets the second Thursday of every month in the Chula Vista Police Department Community Room at 6 p.m.
