About the Citizens' Oversight Committee
Construction has continued throughout the campus since the bond was approved in 2002. A nine-member Citizens' Oversight Committee appointed by the Board of Trustees monitors spending and reports all findings to the public.
As mandated by Proposition 39, the committee must include at least seven people, each representing one of the following constituencies: a local business, a senior group, a bona fide taxpayer’s association, an enrolled student active in a student group, and an active member of a college supporting organization, such as the foundation or a community advisory group. No district employee or official, vendor, contractor, or consultant may serve on the committee. Members are appointed for a minimum of two years, with a two-term maximum.
