Alameda CTC’s Independent Watchdog Committee (IWC) will release its 18th consecutive Annual Report to the Public this month. The report, which covers fiscal year 2018-2019 expenditures and IWC activities, confirms that Measure B and Measure BB transportation sales tax dollars were spent in accordance with the intent of each measure.
Every year, the 17-member IWC, all of whom must be Alameda County residents, reviews and analyzes expenditures for both Measure B, Alameda County’s half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements, and Measure BB, which augmented the half-cent sales tax to one cent and extended the tax through 2045, to ensure that the expenditure of measure sales tax dollars conform to what Alameda County voters approved. The committee is tasked to report directly to the public on Alameda CTC’s Measure B and Measure BB expenditures and performance measures.
The full 2020 IWC Annual Report to the Public and audited financial statements and compliance reports of each agency receiving Measure B and Measure BB funds are available to the public on the Alameda CTC website.
