The Levy to Move Seattle Oversight Committee will serve as a vital mechanism of accountability on how levy revenues are spent. The Oversight Committee is an advisory body that monitors revenues, expenditures, and program and project implementation. The Oversight Committee advises the City Council, the Mayor, and SDOT on responding to program and project cost savings or overruns. The Oversight Committee review's SDOT's program and project priorities and financial plans, and makes recommendations to the Mayor and City Council regarding the spending of levy proceeds. The Oversight Committee will publish annual reports to the Mayor, City Council and people of Seattle.

  • The Chair of the Transportation Committee
