CaLBOC offers free support to school bond oversight committees and is sponsoring a local county chapter meeting on Dec 1st. In May 2012 the Contra Costa County Grand Jury wrote a report on school bond oversight committees that required nine school districts to respond to numerous Findings and Recommendations. One topic of the meeting will be discussing the district’s responses to the Grand Jury. The agenda will also include the Contra Costa County Treasurer’s office briefly explaining requirements and best practices to oversee school bond financing, and participants can learn basics on interpreting financial and performance audit reports for school bonds.
Martinez, California (PRWEB) November 22, 2012
The California League of Bond Oversight Committees (CaLBOC) is announcing their second meeting of the Contra Costa County CaLBOC Chapter on Dec. 1st 10am to noon in Martinez.
Since the year 2000 voters have approved over $3 billion dollars of school facility bonds in Contra Costa County alone. CaLBOC provides support for the members of Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committees (CBOC) to help them with overseeing their district bond programs. Many times CBOC members are overseeing multi-million dollar school bond projects with very little support and training.
On May 11, 2012 the 2011-2012 Contra Costa County Grand Jury released Report # 1208 titled ”School Bond Oversight – Raising the Bar”. This 13 page report has 16 findings and 12 recommendations requiring responses by the governing boards of nine school districts. The districts required to respond are: Acalanes Union High School, Antioch Unified School District, Byron Union School District, Contra Costa Community College District, John Swett Unified School District, Martinez Unified School District, Mt. Diablo Unified School District, Pittsburg Unified School District, and West Contra Costa Unified School District.
