Task Force Responsibilities
In 2014, the City Council directed staff to initiate by resolution a citizen ad-hoc committee tasked to develop a recommendation for the 2015 bond election.  The Task Force, referred to as the Community Investment Program Task Force (CIPTF), was charged with making a recommendation to Council for the May 2015 bond election, which included project identification, ranking, and prioritization.

Michael Gallops and Tammy Dana-Bashian served as the City Council liaison to the committee.  Erik Ernst served as the Chairman and Martha Brown served as Vice-Chair.

The Task Force goals had been met as a result of the successful election results.
