LBCCD Seeks New Member for Citizen’s Oversight Committee
The Long Beach Community College District (LBCCD) is currently accepting applications for one community-at-large representative to the Citizens’ Oversight Committee (COC). Applications will be accepted through Nov. 30, 2019.
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 select the appointment at their Dec. 11, 2019 meeting. The term will be retroactive to July 1, 2019, after the appointment by the Board of Trustees, and will end on June 30, 2021. The COC typically meets twice a year; the next meeting date is Jan. 27, 2020.
The COC oversees both Measure E, a $440 million bond measure approved by the voters in 2008, and Measure LB, an $850 million bond measure approved by the voters in 2016. Funds are used exclusively for the construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation or replacement of LBCCD facilities, or the acquisition or lease of real property for use by the District.
Complete information about the bond measures, the COC, and the application form can be found online at the Citizen’s Oversight Committee page. Community members can call (562) 938-4540 with questions.
