The Mayor and City Council want you — to oversee how Move Seattle levy revenues are spent.
Today the Mayor put out a call for applications for the Move Seattle Oversight Committee, which “advises the City Council, the Mayor, and the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) on responding to program and project cost savings or overruns… In addition, the Oversight Committee reviews SDOT’s program and project priorities and financial plans, and makes recommendations to the Mayor and the City Council regarding the spending of levy proceeds. ”
In other words, this is how we deal with the built-in vagueness of the Move Seattle levy: by having citizens make recommendations on the details.
If you’re interested, the instructions for applying are included in the Mayor’s announcement.
