Measure J Oversight Commission Interviews Slated for March 7 at Palm Springs City Hall
A historic city-wide transformation is about to get under way thanks to the recent passage of Measure J, and on Wednesday, March 7, the Palm Springs City Council will interview a host of residents ready and willing to step up and serve their community.
The interviews, which are open to the public, are scheduled for 10:30 a.m. in the Large Conference Room at Palm Springs City Hall, 3200 E. Tahquitz Canyon Way.
“The Council is currently in the process of thoroughly reviewing all applications and they expect to have dozens of well-qualified applicants to interview,” said City Clerk James Thompson, who noted that an applicant must be a resident of Palm Springs and a registered voter.
Approximately 100 Palm Springs residents have applied for the 7-member Oversight Commission.
“I am delighted that interest in this Commission has been so spectacular,” said Mayor Steve Pougnet. “We asked the community to step up and take an interest and they did. The City Council and I are looking forward to the interview process and finding the best candidates. This is an exciting time to live and work in the City of Palm Springs and there’s no doubt that the best is yet to come!”
