Contra Costa County is looking for individuals to join three groups: the Treasury Oversight Committee, the Juvenile Justice Coordinating Council and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority's Citizen Advisory Committee.
All three groups are looking for county residents to fill positions and be available to attend meetings regularly. Due to COVID-19, all meetings for each committee will be held online through Zoom.
Treasury Oversight Committee
For the Treasury Oversight Committee, the county is looking for someone to serve in the Board of Supervisors' representative seat.
“The Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors is seeking an individual with sound knowledge and experience in the field of public and private finance,” county officials said in a statement.
The committee’s duties will include reviewing and monitoring the county treasurer’s annual investment policy and ensuring an annual audit is conducted to the county treasurer with compliance of the Government Code. Members of this committee will receive no compensation for their service.

Moreover, the supervisor representative can also not work for bond underwriters, bond counsel, security brokerages or dealers, or any financial service firm that has business with the county treasurer.
Meetings will be held on every third Tuesday of the month at 3 p.m.
All applications should be returned to the Board of Supervisors Clerk's Office in Room 106 in the County Administration Building at 651 Pine Street in Martinez.
Applications forms should be sent to the clerk of the Board of Supervisors by Aug. 21 at 5 p.m.

“CCTA maintains its standing CAC in order to provide citizen perspective, participation, and involvement in the Measure J-funded and voter-approved Transportation Expenditure Plan and Growth Management Program,” the County wrote. “The CAC members have an opportunity to learn about and influence transportation and growth issues within Contra Costa County and in order jurisdiction through scheduled presentations by transportation experts, advocates, and CCTA staff.”
Committee meetings will be held on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 6 p.m. Eligible applicants must have the ability to review CAC agenda packets and develop input on agenda items.
