The Foothill-De Anza Community College District has announced openings on an independent Measure C Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee and the Audit & Finance Committee.
The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. Nov. 19. Trustees will appoint the new members at a January board meeting.
“Having local residents lend their expertise on these committees has been invaluable to the district,” Chancellor Linda M. Thor said. “Members of the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee have contributed excellent ideas about how to track and communicate our progress on Measure C. And the insights of members on the Audit & Finance Committee are particularly useful as we evaluate the district’s budget, review our audits and monitor operational issues.”
Measure C Citizens’

The independent Measure C Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee, which provides oversight for the $490.8 million bond program, has three vacancies. Committee members review expenditures from the bond funds, report to the public and present an annual report to the board of trustees.

Bond committee members serve two-year terms. The committee meets quarterly and members are not compensated.
