Q Oversight
The City Council decided to form a new Measure Q (new local sales tax) oversight committee consisting of two members of the Finance Committee, one business owner, and two residents at-large. Council liaisons to this committee will be Terry Sinnott and Sherryl Parks.

The purpose of the Measure Q Citizen Oversight Committee is to review, provide oversight, and report to the City Council on the revenue and expenditure of the Measure Q funds.

The Oversight Committee will not be responsible for providing input on how Measure Q funds will be spent.

Seeking CERTs
The Del Mar, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe and Solana Beach Fire Departments are seeking volunteers for the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program.

EIR Here Now
The court-ordered EIR for the Fairgrounds Master Plan is available for public review and comment until May 12. It addresses traffic mitigation, water supply and greenhouse gas emissions. Copies can be found in the Del Mar Library and on the 22nd DAA website at wwwdelmarfairgrounds.com/index.php?fuseaction=about.master_plan

New Defibs
The City of Del Mar Fire Department has replaced existing AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators) with newer models at the following locations: City Hall, Suite #220, City Council Chambers, Powerhouse Community Center, Public Works Department and Fire Department.

Top Down
The City Council has not completed the rankings to determine high, medium, and low priority work programs. This ranking is needed to align staff time, finances, and other resources. The expectation is that these priorities will get sorted out as the Council makes choices in the budget workshops.

Follow the Money
The City Council Budget Workshops are scheduled to be held on Friday, May 5 from 12:00 to 5:00p.m. and Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 9:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. During the workshops, staff will provide a comprehensive overview of the City’s proposed budget for fiscal years 2017-18 and 2018-2019. Budget decisions drive what gets done so this is an important time for public comment.
