What is the role of the Citizen Oversight Committee (COC)?

The COC committee was established by the referendum to assure that tax dollars collected through the Save Our Lagoon sales tax are managed effectively.  Every year, the COC reviews the plan and recommends updates including new or revised projects.  The recommendation then goes to the County Commission which has the ultimate financial responsibility for approving the plan.

Specific COC responsibilities include: Review data on timeliness of project delivery, actual and updated project costs, actual nutrient removal and effectiveness, review new literature and local studies on the types of projects included in the plan and potential alternative project types, evaluate alternative project proposals received from the community and recommend annual adjustments to the plan.

Meetings are open to the public and televised on Space Coast Government TV. Meeting dates and agendas are found here:
