Santa Monica College is seeking applicants for the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee, which oversees the implementation of Measures U, S and AA, the 2002, 2004 and 2008 bond measures that are funding capital improvement projects at the college.
The application deadline is Monday, September 16, 2013.
The vacancies are specifically for representatives of a taxpayers’ organization and the local business communities of Santa Monica and Malibu. Applications for additional members are encouraged.
To qualify for appointment, an applicant must be at least 18 years old; must not be a college employee or official; and must not be a vendor, contractor or consultant to the college.
The SMC Board of Trustees will review all applications and make the final appointments. Applications are available by calling (310) 434-4402 or by going to http://www.smc.edu/admin/trustees/CitizensBondOversightCommittee/default.htm.
The committee was established in spring 2002, as required by state law, to oversee the implementation of Measure U, the $160 million bond passed by an overwhelming 70 percent of Santa Monica-Malibu voters.
The committee’s responsibility was expanded to include oversight of Measure S, the $135 million bond measure passed in November 2004, and Measure AA, the $295 million bond measure passed in November 2008.
The bond measures are funding a wide range of projects, including replacement buildings, seismic retrofitting, safety and technology upgrades, and more.
