The Chargers Task Force was established in August 2002 and completed its work in February 2003.
What is the mission of the Citizens' Task Force on Chargers Issues?
The Citizens' Task Force was established to:
- Determine whether the San Diego Chargers and the National Football League are important assets to the life and economy of San Diego, to include identification of what the Chargers have done for the City financially, specifically, the amount the City has paid for the ticket guarantee, the amount the Chargers have paid the City for the lease, the net revenue less maintenance and operating costs, and how this impacts the City budget;
- Determine all things that could be done to keep the Chargers in San Diego in a fiscally responsible way that the public will support;
- Recommend what the City should do, if anything, to keep the Chargers in San Diego in a fiscally responsible way that the public will support;
- Explore the feasibility of County and/or regional financial participation in any solution; and,
- Make any other recommendations that the Task Force deems appropriate.
The Citizens Task Force on Chargers Issues has been asked to report recommendations to the City Council by February 15, 2003.
Who are the Task Force Members?
The Task Force is composed of 15 members who were appointed by the Mayor from a pool of citizens nominated by the City Council. The members were confirmed by the City Council on July 23, 2002.
