The City Clerk is accepting applications from Napa Residents for a total of three openings; two to serve on the Napa County Transportation and Planning Agency’s (NCTPA) Active Transportation Advisory Committee (ATAC) and one to serve on the Napa County Measure A Financial Oversight Committee. Deadline for submission of NCTPA Active Transportation Advisory Committee (ATAC) applications is 5:00 p.m. Friday, February 19, 2016. Application submission for one vacancy on the Napa County Measure A Financial Oversight Committee is ongoing until filled.

 

The Napa County Transportation and Planning Agency’s (NCTPA) Active Transportation Advisory Committee (ATAC) advises the NCTPA on the development of Active Transportation facilities, including bicycle and pedestrian facilities. The ATAC reviews and helps prioritize funding for such facilities. The Committee participates in the development and review of bicycle, pedestrian and active transportation plans. The ATAC is composed of individuals with a keen interest in bicycle and pedestrian facilities and “active” modes of transportation. Membership is made up of representatives from each jurisdiction. The Committee meets monthly, generally on the 4th Monday of each month at 5:00 p.m. at NCTPA offices. The term is three years. The qualification for an ATAC member is to either live or work within Napa County.

The Napa County Measure A Financial Oversight Committee member will represent the City of Napa. Meetings are quarterly. The Napa County Measure A Financial Oversight Committee (FOC) is comprised of seventeen members. These members represent each of the city and town councils within the County of Napa, interested members of the business community, the local media, the Napa County Taxpayers Association, the Environmental Community, the Friends of the Napa River, the agricultural industry, health and human services agencies, and a certified public accountant. The Committee informs the public on expenditures of flood protection sales tax proceeds generated as a result of the enactment of measure A. Interested applicants need to have an understanding of the type and nature of expenditures associated with a public project of this magnitude, and be able to review budgetary documents with a particular emphasis on capital project expenditures. The City Council will interview applicants and submit their recommendation to the Napa County Board of Supervisors to appoint a City of Napa representative for a term effective the date appointed by the County Board and ending June 30, 2018.

Applications are available at the City Clerk office at City Hall or online here. (Use Application B).
