The city task force charged with squeezing more money from nonprofits is in place.

City officials on Friday announced that the task force, which the Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority asked the city to create as a condition of passing the 2013 budget, has 36 members from the business, nonprofit, foundation, academic, labor, civic and governmental sectors.

Don Smith, president of the Regional Industrial Development Corp. in O'Hara, will serve as the task force's chair.

The task force has a June 30 deadline to submit a report to the city and ICA, one of the city's two state-appointed financial overseers. Meetings will be open to the public. Dates and locations will be announced in the coming weeks, the mayor's office said.

Critics contend that the city's largest tax-exempt nonprofits should pay more for the services they consume, beyond the charity they provide.

A full list of the task force's members can be found at apps.pittsburghpa.gov/mayor/TaskForceMembers.pdf.
