Volunteers sought for citizens' bond oversight committee

Two East County residents - a representative of a senior citizen group and an individual with expertise in finance or accounting -- are needed to fill a pair of vacancies on the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District’s citizens’ bond oversight committee.

The CBOC is tasked with assuring accountability for funds connected to Proposition V, a $398 million construction bond measure approved by East County voters in 2012.

A total of three seats will be vacated with appointees completing their terms, but the seat for a member of a college advisory committee will be filled internally.

An application form is posted online at www.propsrv.gcccd.edu and must be emailed by January 13 to Stephen.johnson@gafcon.com.

The committee’s advisory role is to review and report on district spending of taxpayers’ money for construction and to provide a public accounting of the district’s compliance with legal requirements. Committee members appointed by the Governing Board include at least 10 community members with expertise in construction-related fields such as architecture, construction management or civil engineering, a financial or accounting-related field, as well as representatives of business, student, senior citizen and taxpayer organizations.

The GCCCD Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee was first formed after the passage of Prop. R, the $207 million bond measure passed in 2002, which funded the addition or reconstruction of 13 major projects. Prop. V is designed to continue the work started by Prop. R to address longstanding facility, infrastructure and technology needs.

Prop. V projects include the recently completed Performing and Visual Arts Center at Grossmont College and the Ornamental Horticulture Complex currently under construction at Cuyamaca College.

CBOC membership involves at least a two-year term with members in good standing eligible for up to three consecutive two-year terms. The volunteer position requires residency within college district boundaries and attendance of four quarterly meetings and about a half-dozen subcommittee meetings annually.
