PASO ROBLES SUPPLEMENTAL SALES TAX OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE - VOLUNTEERS WANTED

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. As a result, the City of Paso Robles is now accepting applications for appointment to the Supplemental Sales Tax Oversight Committee (SSTOC). A member’s regular term of appointment shall be three years1, starting on April 1, 2021. 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 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. Of the seven at-large appointees, a maximum of three appointees may be non-residents of the City, provided they have a business or other demonstrated interest within the City.

The Committee shall meet 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.

Applications may be downloaded from the City website at: www.prcity.com/advisorybodies, or by searching on the City’s website with keyword: “Advisory Application”. Additionally, applications can be picked up, by appointment, at the Paso Robles City Hall Annex located at 821 Pine Street, Suite A. Please call 805-237-3999 to schedule pick up.

To be considered for appointment, your application must be received by the due date. If you have already submitted an application to the City Clerk’s Office, those applications have already been forwarded to Administrative Services and no further action is needed.
