Cerritos College Seeks Applicants for Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee

The Cerritos Community College District is accepting applications to fill vacancies for the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee.  The Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee was established to oversee the expenditure of money for the construction, repair and modernization of campus projects. This committee ensures that the bond proceeds are expended only for the purposes set forth in Measure CC and Measure G and that no bond proceeds are used for teacher or administrative salaries or any other operating expenses.

There are two vacancies as follows: community member and senior citizens’ organization or support organization.  All appointees must be 18 years of age or older.  No members may be employees of the college, official of the District, or any vendor, contractor or consultant of the District.

The members will serve two-year terms. The legal process calls for solicitation of applications after which the College President will review the applications and make recommendations to the Cerritos Community College District Board of Trustees. The Board will make the final decision.  Bond committee members are not compensated for their service.

If you wish to serve on this important committee, please review the committee bylaws for more information about the committee’s role and responsibilities and complete the applicationPDF document. Completed applications should be mailed to the Office of the President.  Applications will be accepted until the seats are filled.
