Community leaders sought for oversight
The Ohlone Community College District is seeking interested individuals to serve on the Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee with other community leaders to oversee the implementation of the Measure G Bond program. Measure G is a $349 million bond measure, which authorizes funding for needed repairs, upgrades, and construction projects primarily on Ohlone College's Fremont campus, passed by voters in November 2010.
All bond measures for educational facilities in the state are required to have an oversight committee comprised of independent citizens that review and approve expenditures of bond funds to ensure that they are spent according to the provisions of the bond. The Citizen's Bond Oversight Committee is appointed by the Ohlone College Board of Trustees to work with the District to ensure that Measure G funds are expended only for school facilities.
The committee's duties are to inform the public of District's expenditures of Measure G proceeds, review expenditure reports by the District as well as present the Board of Trustees with reports outlining their activities and conclusions regarding the expenditure of Measure G bond proceeds. The composition of the committee must include representatives from a senior citizens organization, a taxpayers association, a student, a business person, and at least one general community member (at large).
All appointments are made by the Board of Trustees. Interested individuals should fill out an application at http://www.ohlone.edu/org/bond/application.html. Applications can be mailed to Ohlone Community College District, Administrative Services Office, 43600 Mission Blvd., Fremont, CA 94539 or faxed to 510-659-6045.
For more information, contact the Administrative Services Office at (510) 659-7307 or go to www.ohlone.edu/go/bondapply.
