Ukiah, CA – As a result of the passage of Measure W in November, conducted under Proposition 39, the Board of Trustees of the Mendocino-Lake Community College District is establishing a Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee.

Persons selected for this committee will be active members or represent one of the following categories: One member of a Business organization representing the business community located within the district, one member of a senior citizens' organization, one member of a bona-fide taxpayers association, one member an enrolled Mendocino College student active in a college group, and one member of the community at-large. No employee, official, vendor, contractor, or consultant of Mendocino College may be appointed to the committee.
