San Joaquin Delta College is searching for a member of the public who is active in a senior citizen’s organization to serve on a committee for the College’s taxpayer-funded Measure L bond.
The Citizens’ Oversight Committee is key to ensuring that the $250 million bond, approved by voters in 2004, is being spent properly.
The Committee consists of members representing a range of public interests. The current opening is specifically for a community member who is active in a senior citizen’s organization.
Applications are due by Sept. 23.
Committee members must reside within Delta College’s district, which includes most of San Joaquin County and portions of Calaveras, Sacramento, Solano and Alameda counties.
Committee meetings are held on one Thursday evening during the months of February, May, August and November.
Measure L has been critical as Delta builds new facilities while also upgrading older buildings on the College’s main Stockton campus. The Committee’s role is to review and report on the proper expenditure of bond money. The Committee also ensures that bond money is spent only on the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation or replacement of school facilities.
