Burl Condit and Lee Brandt were named last week to the Measure H Citizens' Oversight Committee for two years that expire on June 30, 2019.

The Ceres City Council made the appointment at its Oct. 23 meeting. They replace Diego Fernandez and Leonard Shepherd. Other members of the committee are Paula Redfern, Don Cool and Rafael Valencia.

Measure H was passed by Ceres voters in November 2007 to raise the sales tax rate in Ceres by a half percent to support police and fire services. The tax currently raises about $2.9 million annually to augment the budget for public safety.

The 10-year funding plan allocates $15 million for police and $15.4 million for fire suppression services.
