TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY SEEKS COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS


The San Mateo County Transportation Authority is soliciting applicants for its Citizens Advisory Committee.

The CAC acts a liaison between the public and the board of directors, providing valuable input to the board on county transportation issues.

The CAC is comprised of 15 volunteer members, and this recruitment seeks to fill six positions. Five of the successful candidates will serve four-year terms, while one position will complete a term expiring in May 2007.

The CAC meets on the Tuesday preceding the first Thursday of the month at 4:30 p.m. in San Carlos. Members of the CAC must be residents of San Mateo County. Applicants will be interviewed and the whole board must approve the appointment of members.

Interested persons can download an application from the TA Web site at www.smcta.com, or contact the board secretary at 650-508-6279. Application deadline is Friday, April 14, 2006 at 5:00 p.m.

The San Mateo County Transportation Authority is an independent agency formed to administer the proceeds of a 20-year countywide half-cent sales tax. Measure A, which established the program, was approved by voters in June 1988. County voters in 2004 reauthorized the TA and its publicly developed expenditure plan for an additional 25 years. The TA will continue to fund vital transportation improvements through 2033.
