Two Civic-Minded Individuals Sought to Serve on the Ohlone Community College District Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee - Press Release, Office of College Advancement
Fremont, CA—The Ohlone Community College District is seeking two local, civic-minded individuals to serve with other community members on its Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee. 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 (1) business representative, and one (1) community-at-large representative. All committee members must reside within the boundaries of the Ohlone Community College District, which includes all of Fremont, Newark and a portion of Union City.
The committee attends quarterly meetings to review reports of bond fund expenditures 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.
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.
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.
