Ohlone College Seeks Bond Oversight Committee Member - Press Release, Office of College Advancement
Fremont, CA—The Ohlone Community College District is seeking a member of a Taxpayers’ Association to serve with other community members on the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee. The Oversight Committee reviews the implementation of the Measure G Bond program. The representative of the Taxpayers’ Association must be actively engaged with a certified association.
The committee attends quarterly meetings to review reports of expenditures of bond funds by the 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.

The Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee is appointed by the Ohlone College Board of Trustees to work with the College.
Measure G is a $349 million bond measure, passed by voters in November 2010, which authorizes funding for needed repairs, upgrades, and construction projects primarily on Ohlone College’s Fremont campus.
