Ojai Oversight Board

In accordance with State Law, the Ojai Oversight Board exists to oversee and make recommendations to the State regarding the assets, debts and operations of the former City of Ojai Redevelopment Agency. When the State passed legislation dissolving redevelopment agencies, it called for creation of Oversight Boards for each former redevelopment agency. Each Board is charged with ratifying decisions about what constitutes an “enforceable” debt, how the property tax that had been going to Redevelopment Agencies will be allocated, and how assets of the former Agency will be handled. The Board includes members appointed by the entities that will receive the property tax if not allocated to the successor agency (City) for these purposes.

The City of Ojai Oversight Board Members are as follows:

John McNeil Fire Services Ventura County Fire
Protection District
David Keebler Vice President of
Business Services
Ventura Community
Colleges District
Jeff Burgh, MPPA Deputy Executive Officer County of Ventura
Executive Office
Andrew Cantwell Assistant
Ojai Unified School
Paul Blatz City Council Member Ojai City Council
Eileen Atkinson Senior Accounting Specialist City of Ojai
Scott Eicher CEO, Chamber of
Ojai Chamber of Commerce


In accordance with AB 26, on July 1, 2016, the various oversight boards throughout the County will be dissolved and a single oversight board for the entire County will be appointed. City of Ojai staff that provide administrative support for this Board are City Manager Robert Clark, Finance Director Rudy Livingston and City Clerk Rhonda Basore.
