The West Hills Community College District is now soliciting applications for service on a Measure T Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee, which will review and inform the public about expenditures related to the Measure T bond measure proceeds.
The measure, passed in November of 2014, authorizes the District to issue up to $20,000,000 in general obligation bonds and its passage obligates the District to form an oversight committee.
The committee, mandated by the Education Code, will consist of a minimum of seven members from seven different groups. Based on criteria established by Proposition 39, the committee must consist of members from these groups:
- One member active in a business organization representing the business community located in the WHCCD
- One member active in a senior citizen’s organization
- One member active in a bona-fide taxpayers association
- One member who is a student currently enrolled in the WHCCD and active in a community college group, like student government
- One member active in the support and organization of a community college or the community colleges of the District
- Two members of the community at-large appointed by the Board
To qualify for membership, the applicant must additionally be at least 18 years old and reside within the WHCCD’s geographic boundary and must not be an employee, official, vendor, contractor or consultant of the District.
Candidates will need to submit written applications, at which time the WHCCD Board of Trustees will appoint from the list of candidates.
The district is also accepting applications for service on the WHCCD’s other oversight committees, including the Northern Area of the School Facilities Improvement District Number One Measure Q committee and the Lemoore Area Measure E committee, School Facilities Improvement District Number Three.
