The Merced County Association of Governments (MCAG) is currently accepting applications for a representative from an ethnic community group to sit on the Measure V Citizens Oversight Committee.

The Citizens Oversight Committee (COC) was created as a result of the passage of Measure V in 2016. Its main function is to review the local, half-cent transportation tax expenditures to assure they conform to the Measure V Expenditure Plan approved by Merced County voters. Committee members are appointed by the MCAG Governing Board to serve two-year terms. Each COC member may serve up to eight years, if reappointed. The COC meets quarterly at the MCAG office in Merced; all meetings are open to the public and governed by the Brown Act. Committee members are volunteers and receive no compensation.

Additional information about the COC and the application packet are available here or at the MCAG office on 369 W. 18th Street in Merced. The deadline for submission is Friday, October 11th.

MCAG is the state-designated Local Transportation Authority for Merced County responsible for the implementation and administration of overseeing Measure V. To keep the community informed about this transformative measure, MCAG features monthly updates in their electronic newsletter which can be found here. Additional information about Measure V including financial statements and specific project information by jurisdiction can be found at

The Merced County Association Governments (MCAG) is the regional transportation planning agency and metropolitan planning organization for Merced County. In addition to regional transportation planning, MCAG also manages The Bus, YARTS and the Merced County Regional Waste Management Authority.
