Supplemental sales tax committee seeking new members
Applications are due by Thursday, Jan. 27
– The City of Paso Robles is now accepting applications for appointments to fill two at-large member positions for the Supplemental Sales Tax Oversight Committee (SSTOC).
With the passage of Measure J-20 in November 2020, the voters of Paso Robles approved an additional one-cent supplemental sales tax. A component of Measure J-20 calls for advice and oversight by an independent committee. The City of Paso Robles is now accepting applications for appointments to fill two at-large member positions for the Supplemental Sales Tax Oversight Committee (SSTOC). A member’s regular term of appointment shall be three years, starting on April 1, 2022. SSTOC members can expect to dedicate one-to-three hours every six months to ensure that the existing half-cent sales tax revenues as well as Measure J-20 revenues are spent on the high-priority areas identified by the Paso Robles City Council and to provide the needed feedback to the public.
Applicants are encouraged to review the SSTOC Bylaws for a complete overview of the committee’s purpose, roles, and responsibilities: www.prcity.com/supplementaltax.
The SSTOC members are appointed by and serve at the pleasure of the city council. The SSTOC consists of eleven members, seven of whom shall be at-large appointees and four of whom shall be appointees affiliated with community organizations.
The committee meets on a semi-annual basis, during the months of April and October, at a location accessible to the public (either in person or virtually, depending on any in-person meeting restrictions resulting from a pandemic or other event) in Paso Robles, California. Special meetings may be held upon call of the chairperson, or an affirmative vote by a majority of the members of the committee present at a regular or special meeting.
