The panel will work as an advisory board for Faulconer and doesn't have to include public input.
Two councilmen, David Alvarez and Todd Gloria, have raised questions about the task force's exclusion of taxpayers and are asking Faulconer to change it and give people a say in the process.
"We just need to ensure the public, who is going to make the decision on it, that they’ll know exactly what they’re getting into," said Alvarez.
Councilman Gloria agrees.
"In this particular case, we're talking about potentially billions of dollars -- taxpayer money that is something the public has a right to know about," said Gloria.
San Diego City Attorney Jan Goldsmith has said that as long as the group remains an informal advisory group to the mayor, it is not violating any public access laws.
Faulconer said the task force is the first step in the process, public input is the second and will take place once the task force comes up with a plan.
