Thank you members for volunteering to serve on the Measure D Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee. This website serves as the primary communication tool for the committee members, the community and the stakeholders. The purpose is to provide information intended to assist the CBOC in fulfilling their roles and responsibilities associated with the oversight of the Measure D Bond and to keep the community and stakeholders informed of the activities of this committee that represents them. This page will be updated often with meeting agendas, meeting minutes, various financial reports and other information we hope the committee and the community find valuable.
