Open position for Transportation Benefit District board

Are you interested in helping maintain the City’s streets and sidewalks? Well, here's a great opportunity! The City of Spokane’s Transportation Benefit District (TBD) Board is seeking applicants to fill a vacancy on the citizen advisory board that helps determine priorities for TBD funding.

The vacancy is for an at-large position with a term ending Nov. 11, 2013 and the chosen applicant can seek reappointment at the end of the term.

Spokane’s Transportation Benefit District is an independent taxing district created in October 2010 to help the City better maintain its street system and pedestrian infrastructure. The City Council serves as the TBD governing board separately from their Council duties.

Money raised through a $20 vehicle registration fee pays for street maintenance and pedestrian improvements outlined in the City’s Six-Year Pavement Maintenance Program. That vehicle registration raises about $2.6 million annually.

The CTAB includes seven members—one member from each of the City’s three City Council Districts, one at-large member, and one member from each of the following committees:

-The Citizens Street Advisory Committee (CSAC), which oversees spending of the funds generated by the 2004 10-Year Street Bond.

-The Pedestrian, Traffic & Transportation (PETT) Committee of the Community Assembly.

-The Bicycle Advisory Board (BAB).

Go HERE for an application form or you can call the City Council office at 625-6255. Applications should be submitted to the City Council office on the 7th floor of City Hall, 808 W. Spokane Falls Blvd.
