Ohlone College seeks bond oversight committee members
Submitted By Ohlone College
Two local, civic-minded individuals are being sought to join the Citizens? Bond Oversight Committee at Ohlone College. The Oversight Committee reviews the implementation of the Measure G Bond program to ensure the funds are allocated appropriately. For compositional balance on the committee, the district is seeking one business representative and one community-at-large representative. All committee members must live within the boundaries of the Ohlone Community College District, which includes all of Fremont, Newark and a portion of Union City.
Committee members attend quarterly meetings to review reports of bond fund expenditures by the college district, presents the Board of Trustees with reports outlining their activities and conclusions regarding Measure G Bond proceeds, and informs the public of the district?s progress on Measure G activities.
Measure G is a $349 million bond measure, passed by voters in Nov. 2010, which authorizes funding for needed repairs, upgrades, and construction projects primarily on Ohlone College's Fremont campus.
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 Citizens? Bond Oversight Committee is appointed by the Ohlone College Board of Trustees to work with the college.
