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 and must be emailed by January 13 to

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.
