Following the passage of Measure PCC in November 2022, Pasadena City College is calling on local residents to serve on the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee.
The legally mandated committee is principally charged with ensuring the proper expenditure of bond funding for construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, or replacement projects covered in the project list. The body will also keep the public informed about the bond spending through an independent annual audit.
By code, the committee must include one person from each of the following groups:
- Local community organizations
- Local business
- Senior citizens’ organization
- Taxpayers’ organization
- A PCC student
Members will be expected to serve for two years. The committee will hold public meetings on at least a quarterly basis, and a time commitment of less than five hours each month is expected.
Applications may be submitted online at https://forms.gle/BR7q6PqVvi9tx3wA7. The deadline to apply is Feb. 15, 2023. More information is available online: https://pasadena.edu/business-administrative-services/facilities-and-construction/bond-planning.php
Enacted with 70% of the vote, Measure PCC is a general obligation bond that will provide $565 million for renovations and new construction at PCC’s campuses in the West San Gabriel Valley.
