Oversight committee members sought

Union Democrat staff

The Yosemite Community College District Board of Trustees, which governs Modesto Junior College and Columbia College, is seeking two new members for the Measure E Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee.

The independent committee's primary function is to inform the public on the spending of Measure E funds, a $326 million bond measure passed in 2004 to pay for improvements and new buildings on both campuses.

Meeting quarterly, the committee reviews expenditures and produces an annual report on all bond projects. But the Board of Trustees makes all decisions about spending and approves projects.

If appointed to the citizens' oversight committee, applicants will serve two-year terms.

The committee needs a representative from a business organization, such as a chamber of commerce, and a student representative from Columbia College.

District employees, officials, vendors, contractors or consultants are not eligible to serve.

The Yosemite Community College District recently appointed Barbara Frazer of Modesto as a senior citizen representative, Gordon Molloy of Twain Harte as an "at-large" representative, and Modesto Junior College student Taeilorae Levell to serve two-year terms on the oversight committee.

Applications are available at the Yosemite Community College District Chancellor's Office at 2201 Blue Gum Ave. in Modesto or online at www.yosemite.edu/bond/committee.

The oversight committee's next meeting will take place June 26 at Columbia College. Meeting minutes, agendas and other documents are posted at www.yosemite.edu/bond.
