OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE: Wildomar Seeks Volunteers To Help Oversee City Parks

Applicants must reside in Wildomar; the final five appointees will be selected by the Wildomar City Council.

The City of Wildomar is looking for residents to sit on an advisory committee to oversee how tax dollars will be spent on parks.

Through Jan. 23, the city is accepting applications for the five-member Wildomar Community Parks Funding Measure Citizen’s Oversight Advisory Committee.

The volunteer assignments are not paid employee positions, and no salary or benefits will be provided; some expenses, such as mileage, may be reimbursed.

Applicants must reside in Wildomar; the final appointees will be selected during the regularly scheduled Feb. 13 City Council meeting. Appointees will report to a subcommittee comprised of Wildomar City Council members Bridgette Moore and Marsha Swanson, said Wildomar Community Services Director Paula Willette.

The first Wildomar Community Parks Funding Measure Citizen’s Oversight Advisory Committee meeting will take place March 4, Willette said.

The oversight advisory committee is being formed after Wildomar voters passed Measure Z in November. The ballot measure imposes an annual $28 tax on the city's property owners for the purpose of maintaining Wildomar parks.

According to the approved measure, the tax dollars will be used “to reopen closed community parks, prevent closure of Marna O'Brien Park (the last open City park), restore funding for recreational services/community events, maintain safe playground equipment, clean public restrooms, sports fields, and youth/children's  recreation/after-school programs, restore park security patrols/safety lighting, and remove graffiti …”

You do realize that by just filling out half of a application, does not guarantee you a spot on the committee? I do not believe that anyone that is so against their own city, such as you & Marfa, should even be considered. }~)

I agree Hobie. A person that does nothing but trash and sue their own city and neighbors, has no business on any of the citys' committees. }~)

@Chere, I believe with all of the frivolous lawsuits popping up, its better to be on the side of caution, rather than to risk the intense scrutiny by that one individual above. Unfortunately, thats just what its come down to. }~)

"The only requirement should be proof of residency" ??? Are you kidding me? That would open up possible litigation from every Marfa out there trying to fund their retirement by suing the city for every frivolous situation that they can create. I think the city is being cautiously responsible in their efforts to weed out any 'bad apples' that may want to use this position for their own nefarious deeds.

"I think the city is being cautiously responsible in their efforts to weed out any 'bad apples' that may want to use this position for their own nefarious deeds." Exactly! They simply want to know who they are dealing with, though in some cases I'm sure they will have some idea who some of the applicants are anyway.
