The City of Wildomar is looking for residents to sit on an advisory committee to oversee how tax dollars will be spent on parks.
Through Jan. 23, the city is accepting applications for the five-member Wildomar Community Parks Funding Measure Citizen’s Oversight Advisory Committee.
The volunteer assignments are not paid employee positions, and no salary or benefits will be provided; some expenses, such as mileage, may be reimbursed.
Applicants must reside in Wildomar; the final appointees will be selected during the regularly scheduled Feb. 13 City Council meeting. Appointees will report to a subcommittee comprised of Wildomar City Council members Bridgette Moore and Marsha Swanson, said Wildomar Community Services Director Paula Willette.
The oversight advisory committee is being formed after Wildomar voters passed Measure Z in November. The ballot measure imposes an annual $28 tax on the city's property owners for the purpose of maintaining Wildomar parks.
According to the approved measure, the tax dollars will be used “to reopen closed community parks, prevent closure of Marna O'Brien Park (the last open City park), restore funding for recreational services/community events, maintain safe playground equipment, clean public restrooms, sports fields, and youth/children's recreation/after-school programs, restore park security patrols/safety lighting, and remove graffiti …”
