Members of the Measure M Taxpayer Oversight Committee (TOC) will conduct their annual public hearing Tuesday, Feb. 11 to review major committee actions and Measure M financial audit results, as well as listen to public comments relating to the implementation of Measure M during 2013.
Measure M is the countywide sales tax measure that funds transportation services and projects throughout Orange County. The hearing will begin at 6:00 PM at the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) headquarters in Orange.
The independent, 11-member oversight committee serves as a voter safeguard to monitor OCTA’s use of Measure M funding, approve all changes to the Measure M plan, and hold annual public hearings on the expenditure of funds generated by the sales tax measure.
Hundreds of local projects that impact residents every day have already been completed using Measure M funding. These projects include enhancements to freeways, street widening, signal synchronization, intersection improvements and the Metrolink commuter rail service.
