The city of Galt is looking to fill four positions on its Measure R Oversight Committee.

Measure R, which voters approved in 2008, increased the sales tax in the city by one half of one cent. All funds go directly to supporting police service in the city of Galt. This committee is an independent oversight committee which watches over those funds to ensure that they are spent in a manner consistent with the provisions of the ballot measure. Qualified candidates must be a resident of Galt to be eligible to apply for committee membership. Applicants must have the ability to serve a three-year term and meet quarterly on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. One appointed committee member will serve a term ending April 2021, and three appointed committee members will serve a term ending April 2023. Current city of Galt employees, officials, contractors or vendors of the city may not apply.

Please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 209-366-7130 with any questions. Applications will be accepted until May 18.
