Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee Application


Time Commitment and Term

Appointees were initially appointed one and/or two year terms to divide the committee into two groups so not all members terms expire at the same time.  Members now serve two-year terms. Members may be eligible for reappointment by the Governing Board for a second and/or a third term.
