Mariposa County Unified School District (MCUSD) is seeking applicants for positions on its Bond Oversight Committee (BOC). This citizens’ committee is a legal requirement associated with the passage of Measure L, which authorizes District officials to sell general obligation bonds to fund school facilities projects. According to California Education Code, the prescribed functions of the committee are as follows:
1) Inform the Public. The Committee shall inform the public concerning the District’s expenditure of bond proceeds.
2) Review Expenditures. The Committee shall review expenditure reports to ensure that (a) bond proceeds were expended only for the purposes set forth in Measure L; and (b) no bond proceeds have been used for teacher or administrative salaries or other operating expenses.
3) Annual Report. At least once annually, the Committee shall prepare an annual written report, the findings of which shall be summarized to the Board in public session.
The Committee shall not be responsible for the oversight of any projects not financed through general obligation bond proceeds. The Committee also will not be involved in the establishment of priorities for bond projects, the selection of architects, engineers, and other professional service firms required to complete the project(s), the approval of the design for each project, or the selection of independent audit firm(s) or consultants.
Interested persons are invited to submit an application for consideration. The applicant packet is available at the link below, or at the MCUSD District Office at 5082 Old Highway North in Mariposa. The deadline for applications is 5 PM, February 24, 2017.
Attention Local Building Contractors
Due to the passage of Measure L, Mariposa County Unified School District will soon be undertaking several construction projects, and wishes to involve local businesses as much as possible. At the next meeting of the Mariposa County Contractors Association (MCCA), information will be presented regarding how local contractors can be considered for construction projects at area schools. Staff and other industry experts will be presenting information on the process of becoming “qualified” according to state requirements to perform public works projects.
All area contractors are invited (contractors only please) — it is not necessary to be a member of MCAA to attend.
When: Thursday, February 16, 2017 - 5 PM
Where: Ranch Fence - 5071 Cole Road, Mariposa (Bootjack)
