MiraCosta College Accepting Applications for Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee

07/19/2019
The Board of Trustees of the MiraCosta Community College District is seeking qualified, interested individuals to serve on a committee of community leaders, who will operate as the Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (ICBOC) for the implementation of the district’s Measure MM college facilities bond program.  

On November 8, 2016, voters residing within the MiraCosta Community College District passed Measure MM, a $455 million bond measure that authorizes funding for needed repairs, upgrades, and new construction projects at MiraCosta College. Proposition 39 required a 55 percent supermajority for approval. Measure MM was passed by 62.39 percent.

After a bond authorized under Proposition 39 is passed, California law requires the MiraCosta Community College District Board of Trustees appoint an Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee to work with the district. The purpose of the Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee is to inform the public about the expenditure of bond revenues, review and report on the proper expenditure of taxpayers' money for school construction, and advise the public as to the MiraCosta Community College District’s compliance with Proposition 39 requirements as contained in the California Constitution.

All appointments will be made by the Board of Trustees from applications submitted to the District. The Committee consists of seven (7) members appointed by the board from a list of candidates submitting written applications, and based on criteria established by Prop 39. The District is seeking applications to fulfill a two-year role for the following vacancies:

  • One (1) member active in a MiraCosta College support organization
  • One (1) member active in a taxpayers’ association

If you wish to serve on this important committee, please review the committee bylaws at miracosta.edu/icboc. Find more information about the committee’s role and responsibilities and complete the application.

Completed applications should be sent to MiraCosta Community College District, 1 Barnard Drive, Oceanside, CA 92056, Attention: Melanie Haynie, Administrative Services.
