Bond oversight committee in Dublin now without quorum, needs new members

Four vacancies on DUSD's Citizens Bond Oversight Committee

The Dublin Unified School District Citizens Bond Oversight Committee is seeking to fill four vacancies that currently leave the group without a quorum.

Due to the shortage of representation, the usually seven-member committee couldn’t vote on any issues at its Wednesday night meeting, where the group was also restricted to holding open discussion and sharing informative material.

After the $184 million Measure C bond measure was passed in 2004, the committee was formed to ensure that expenditures of bond funds for Measure C, as well as the general obligation bond measures E and H, are properly allocated. Currently the committee is looking for community members to represent the categories of community-at-large, parent, parent-teacher organization and taxpayers organization.

The Parcel Tax Oversight Committee is also looking for some new faces; the group was formed five years ago when voters approved Measure B, the local parcel tax which expires at the end of June and was recently replaced in the May 7 general election by Measure E. Representatives for the local business community, parent-teacher organizations and district families are needed.

Applicants for both committees must meet certain criteria such as being a parent or guardian of a child enrolled in a DUSD school or actively involved in a business, taxpayer or parent-teacher group. For more information and an application, visit the district website and click on the relevant committee.

The committee only meets once a quarter. So there is not a large time commitment, but we need your help!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
