About the Portland Fire and Rescue GO Bond Project Oversight Committee
Portland Fire and Rescue will receive a total of $27.7M in General Obligation Bond proceeds, as authorized by Portland voters (Measure 26-117, November 2010 general election) to replace aging fire and emergency apparatus ($19.8M) and to construct a fire station near Willamette River ($7.9M). The Measure 26-117 ballot title requires that the City establish a five-member citizen oversight committee.
This Independent Citizen Committee (ICC), as well as individual Project Oversight Committees is described in a December 20, 2010 memorandum from the City’s Chief Administrative Officer. Per this memorandum, the Portland Fire & Rescue GO Bond Project Oversight Committee will serve the City in both project advisory and oversight roles as follows:
- Provide reports to the City of Portland’s Independent Citizen Committee (these reports will serve as the basis for the Independent Citizen Committee to develop their reports to the Chief Administrative Officer and City Council);
- Provide oversight and guidance for the two Portland Fire and Rescue GO Bond funded projects: the replacement of apparatus and the construction of fire station;
- Provide feedback on project planning and implementation to the Fire Chief and
- Assist with communication to the Independent Citizen Committee and the City Council regarding the expenditures for the public safety General Obligation Bond Measure.
