Solano College board to discuss bond oversight

By From page A3 | February 19, 2013

FAIRFIELD — Solano Community College staff recommends giving the job of overseeing Measure Q to the group that has been keeping an eye on how Measure G money has been spent since 2002.

The district’s board of trustees will hear the issue when it meets at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Vacaville campus at 2001 N. Village Parkway.

Solano College is in the beginning stages of planning for Measure Q, a $348 million bond passed by voters in November to construct new buildings on three campuses while adding new programs.

One of those early steps is to create a committee that will oversee the collection and spending of the tax revenue. Rather than recruit a new group, staff recommends using a group that has been doing that job for the past decade on the college’s last bond.

The committee, consisting of a minimum of seven people, is an advisory group that reports to the board of trustees, which has the final say on how Measure Q money is spent.

Measure G was a $124.5 million bond, which the college is still spending down.
