Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee
The Board of Trustees of the Santa Barbara Community College District is not currently seeking individuals to serve on the independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (“CBOC”) of the Measure V Bond program.
Proposition 39 Bond Election
On June 3, 2008, voters residing within the Santa Barbara Community College District passed Measure V under Proposition 39. Measure V is a $77,242,012 million bond measure which authorizes funding for needed repairs, upgrades, and new construction projects to the schools within the Santa Barbara Community College District.
Establishment of a Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee
After a bond authorized under Proposition 39 is passed, state law requires that the Santa Barbara Community College District Board of Trustees appoint a Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee. The committee was appointed in November 2008 using the application process.
In accordance with Education Code Section 15278(b), the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee shall:
- Inform the public concerning the District’s expenditure of Measure V bond proceeds;
- Review expenditure reports produced by the District to ensure that Measure V bond proceeds were expended only for the purposes set forth in Measure V;
- Present to the Governing Board, in public session, an annual written report outlining their activities and conclusions regarding the expenditure of Measure V bond proceeds.
Appointments of Committee Members
All appointments were made by the Governing Board from applications submitted to the district.
Time Commitment and Term
The Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee meets three times each year. Initial appointments were staggered, such that some of the initial appointees were appointed to serve one full two-year term and others were appointed to an initial one-year term. The initial appointments of the members appointed to an initial two-year term are now at an end. One committee seat is available. Interested applicants are encouraged to complete and submit an application for appointment to the committee for a two-year term. Sitting committee members are eligible to be reappointed for a second term.
