The commissioners serve at the pleasure of the City Council. Five commissioners are directly appointed by each of the five individual Council Members, and serve a two-year term. Two “at-large” appointments on the commission are made by a majority vote of the entire Council, and they serve a two-year term. The current vacancies are for two-year terms. Interested candidates must be a resident of the City of Atascadero and a registered voter in order to qualify.
The Citizens’ Sales Tax Oversight Committee (CSTOC) annually reviews revenues and expenditures from the collection of the half-cent sales tax approved by voters in November, 2014. The Committee is comprised of nine members; seven members are appointed to the Committee by individual Atascadero community groups and two members are appointed by the City Council. Appointees must be residents of the City and may not be an elected official.
