The Advisory Committee


Clean Air Fund Advisory Committee

    Since December 10, 1991, the Clean Air Fund Advisory Committee’s purpose has been to advise the Air Pollution Control Board on how to spend the $1.5 million in the Clean Air Fund, which was created by a donation from the 3M Company. The 3M Company requested that the Board oversee the expenditure of its donation, with the added request that $300,000 of the $1.5 million be held as a permanent endowment. The funds are currently held in a trust by the nonprofit Ventura County Community Foundation. The permanent endowment has now grown to about $700,000, and annual grants from this fund are limited to the interest earnings on this amount, typically 5 percent. The Committee meets as needed when funds are available and when projects are proposed.
     

    Current Committee members include: 
     

    Mike Stubblefield, Civic & Environmental, Chair
    Jay W. Bayman, Citizen
    Marv King, Business
    John Kromka, Citizen
    Mike Montoya, Business
    Kate Neiswender, Citizen
