MiraCosta College’s Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee Releases 2019 Annual Report

06/17/2020


The MiraCosta College Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (ICBOC) released their second Annual Report for the period of January, 2019–December, 2019


In the report, Josh Mazur, ICBOC Chair, wrote “At this still-early stage of the bond program, we have completed five projects, are in construction on six, and in the design stage for eight—great progress for our second year of actual construction. All bond money is being spent appropriately and no money is being spent on District staff.”


The Annual Report celebrates the perfect score earned on the San Diego County Taxpayers’ Association School Board Transparency Report and launch of the Capital Improvement Programs Dashboard, which provides detailed information on the financial performance, project schedule, and other details related to the project.


MiraCosta College’s Measure MM Bond, which passed in November 2016, was a $455 million general obligation bond to modernize aging facilities and upgrade instructional technology. Measure MM received nearly two-thirds approval; 55 percent was required to pass the measure. 


California law requires the MiraCosta Community College District Board of Trustees to appoint an Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (ICBOC) to work with the District. The purpose of the ICBOC is to (1) inform the public about the expenditure of bond revenues, (2) review and report on the proper expenditure of taxpayers' money for school construction, and (3) advise the public as to the MiraCosta Community College District’s compliance with Proposition 39 requirements as contained in the California Constitution.


The Board of Trustees of the MiraCosta Community College District is seeking qualified, interested individuals to serve on a committee of community leaders, who will operate as the Independent Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee (ICBOC) for the implementation of the District’s Measure MM college facilities bond program.  


If you wish to serve on this important committee, please review the committee Bylaws at miracosta.edu/icboc for more information about the committee’s role and responsibilities and complete the application.

 

Completed applications should be received by 4 p.m. no later than July 31, 2020, sent to Melanie Haynie, Administrative Services, MiraCosta Community College District, 1 Barnard Drive, Oceanside, CA 92056 or via email at mhaynie@miracosta.edu.
