Public Safety Sales Tax Oversight Committee seeks new members

The City of Colorado Springs is seeking volunteers to fill open positions on the  Public Safety Sales Tax Oversight Committee (PSSTOC): one at-large representative and one representative from council district one.  District one covers the northwest part of the City; a council district map can be found at            

The PSSTOC monitors the expenditure of the Public Safety Sales Tax (PSST) funds and ensures that the items approved by voters at the November 6, 2001 election are accomplished with PSST funds. Additionally, the PSSTOC reviews the annual PSST and General Fund Preliminary Budget as submitted to City Council to ensure that the baseline funding for General Fund public safety expenditures is maintained.  Meetings typically take place on the first Wednesday of each month at 4:30 p.m. and there are other occasional meetings as necessary.  

Send letters of interest and resumes before Friday, August 19 to or mail to City Council; Attention Marti Devine Sletta; P.O. Box 1575; Colorado Springs, CO 80901.
