For the 11th year in a row, the CWC reports full compliance with specific caps, and that auditors identified no accounting concerns. Read the full Report to the Public.
“Alameda CTC is responsible for allocating Measure B sales tax dollars for a wide range of transportation programs and projects that expand access and improve mobility, and the CWC is responsible for providing independent oversight of these expenditures to demonstrate to voters and businesses of Alameda County that Measure B is delivering on its promise,” said Citizens Watchdog Committee Chair James Paxson. “The review and analysis done by the CWC play a key role in making sure that Measure B funds are spent in accordance with the wishes of the voters.”
The report, covering fiscal year 2011-2012, notes that audited income and expenditures were in compliance with specific caps and that the auditors identified no accounting concerns. It also provides an update on the delivery of voter-approved programs and projects funded by Measure B, Alameda County’s half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements.
