The Long Beach Community College District (LBCCD) Citizens’ Oversight Committee (COC), which oversees District bond projects, is seeking a new member to represent the Bona-Fide Tax Payers’ Association. Applications are being accepted through Sept. 30.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and reside within the LBCCD boundary, which includes the cities of Long Beach, Signal Hill, Lakewood and Avalon.
The LBCCD Board of Trustees will be asked to approve the new member at its October 13th meeting. The term of service for the new appointee is October 14, 2021, through June 30, 2023. The COC has two mandatory meetings each year and may schedule others as needed. The next COC meeting date after the appointment will be January 31, 2022.
