Plant Facilities Levy (PFL) Advisory Committee
An important part of the 2023 plant facilities levy is the Advisory Committee, an independent community-based body to monitor the PFL program.
The Plant Facilities Levy Advisory Committee will actively monitor the West Ada School District PFL in the following ways:
Ensure PFL revenues are used only for the purposes consistent with the May 2023 plant facilities levy measure and consistent with state law.
Stay abreast of key information related to the plant facilities levy to ensure transparency to community stakeholders.
Review plant facilities levy program financial reports; may inspect school facilities and grounds related to PFL activities accompanied by district staff.
The PFL Advisory Committee has three areas of focus including reviewing financial reports, sharing community feedback and questions about the PFL so district staff can provide an accurate response or address a concern, and providing an annual report to the school board with a summary of the advisory process.
The committee will review project improvements, PFL program updates, and allocations of PFL revenue. The committee will receive updates on recommendations to the school board for potential projects. Meeting notes will be taken by district staff and provided for review to committee members before being made publicly available on the district website.
The PFL Advisory Committee shall be composed of ten community members (2 representatives from each West Ada zone) and include the Chief Operations Officer and Director of Education Services of West Ada School District. Committee members shall primarily be professionals with experience in construction, finance, auditing, public budgeting, banking and general business. Committee members will be selected through an application process and approved by district administration. At the first meeting of each fiscal year, they shall nominate and appoint a committee chairperson who will work with staff liaisons to plan committee meetings and activities and to facilitate committee meetings.
