The Citizen’s Oversight Committee was created by the Board of Directors in the 2008 Expenditure Plan, which accompanied Measure Q in 2008.  While all SMART meetings are open to the public and allow for input from the public, the COC provides a more direct role for members of the public. Its duties, as outlined in the 2008 and 2020 Expenditure Plan, are to review and provide input on SMART’s Strategic Plans.  It’s makeup and duties are determined by the Board of Directors, who approves its membership, duties and terms.
