County seeks volunteers for Infrastructure Surtax Oversight Committee
The Bay County Board of County Commissioners seeks volunteers interested in serving on a nine-member Citizen's Oversight Committee to review expenditures of the recently passed Infrastructure Sales Surtax.
The committee is tasked with ensuring that proceeds from the half-cent sales tax are spent in accordance with the law. At its Dec. 20 meeting, the Bay County Commission determined that the committee shall consist of nine board-appointed members, with five nominated by commissioners, one each nominated by the boards of the Bay County and Panama City Beach Chambers of Commerce, one nominated by the Bay County Economic Development Alliance and one nominated by the committee at-large.
The terms of the five members appointed by Bay County Commissioners are to run concurrently with the commissioner who made the nomination, and all other members serve two-year terms. The committee will be in place during the entire 10-year term of the tax.
Citizens who would like to serve on the board should submit a letter of interest with contact information and identifying the seat they would like to fill via email to Sherry Hardy at email@example.com by Jan. 7. Please call 248-8142 for more information.
