What is the Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee?
State law requires that colleges that pass Proposition 39 bonds establish an independent
oversight committee to make sure that bond funds are spent in accordance with projects
and programs outlined in the election ballot. The RCCD Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee
is composed of seven appointed community members that represent the business community,
senior citizen organizations, students enrolled and active in a community college
support group, taxpayer organizations, college support organizations for the District
and the community at large.
Who Appoints Members to the Committee?
According to the Independent Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee Amended and Restated
Bylaws, Section 5.4 Term - Except as otherwise provided herein, each member shall
serve a term of two (2) years, commencing as of the later of the date of appointment

first meeting, members may draw lots to select a minimum of two members to serve for
