The Murrieta Valley Unified School District is seeking community members to serve a two-year term on a Citizens' Oversight Committee for the allocation of Measure E bond funds, according to a news release.
Murrieta voters passed Measure E, a $120 million General Obligation Bond, in June 2006. The oversight committee was then created to monitor the implementation of the bond measure.
Ten community members were appointed to the Committee to serve a two-year term. The district is now seeking citizens for the fourth two-year term.
"The purpose of the committee is to insure that general obligation bond funds are used in accordance with the intention of the voters and with the highest possible level of efficiency so that every school site is acquired, renovated, constructed, and funded to better serve the educational needs of the children of our community," said Karen Parris, spokesperson for the Murrieta Valley Unified School District.
Measure E funds have been used to help build , and , Parris said.
Measure E funds have also funded renovation projects at various sites throughout the district, upgraded technology district-wide and will help to purchase the property for Sykes Elementary School, Parris said.
The balance of Measure E funds for Fiscal Year 2012-2013 is $5.6 million, according to Parris.
To assure broad-based representation, the district requires committee members to be a business representative, senior citizen, parent of an MVUSD student, member of a taxpayer organization, an at-large community member or parent active in MVUSD PTA.
Anyone in one of those categories who is interested in serving on the Citizens’ Oversight Committee was asked to contact Lori Noorigian at 951-696-1600 ext. 1080 or email@example.com for an application.
Applications must be submitted by Oct. 1.
