      • June Employees of the Month Honored
      • Board Recognizes Teen Council for Year of Service
      • OCTA Fulfilling Promises to Voters Through Measure M
    • The Orange County Transportation Authority’s board of directors recognized two employees of the month for June.

      The honors went to:

      • Coach Operator Richard Mares
      • Anh Le from the maintenance division
    • The OCTA board recognized 12 teenagers who completed their one-year term on the OCTA Teen Council.

      The high school students met monthly during the school year to attend professional workshops hosted by OCTA staff, network and provide insight on the development of marketing campaigns, including OCTA’s Youth Summer Pass, OC Flex and Taco Transit Tuesday.

      Now entering its sixth year, the Teen Council plays an important role at OCTA, and members build leadership, teamwork, critical thinking and communication skills while working with OCTA staff to develop and implement projects.

      OCTA is currently accepting applications for the 2019-20 Teen Council. Applications are available at www.octa.net/TeenCouncil and are due by July 31.

    • The Measure M Taxpayers Oversight Committee has determined for the 28th consecutive year that Measure M is being delivered as promised to the voters of Orange County.

      At its annual public hearing held on June 11, the committee unanimously determined that OCTA is proceeding in accordance with the ordinance that voters renewed in 2006. The independent, 11-member oversight committee was formed to monitor OCTA’s use of Measure M funding. The committee approves all changes to the Measure M plan and holds an annual public hearing on the funds being spent that are generated by the half-cent sales tax measure for transportation improvements.

      The original Measure M made possible more than $4 billion worth of transportation improvements to help Orange County residents, workers and visitors travel more efficiently throughout all parts of the county.

      The renewed plan, also known as OC Go, is expected to generate more than $13 billion to fund transportation improvements through 2041. The freeway program also includes funding for an environmental program that preserves and restores natural habitat and improves water quality.
