New members sought for oversight committee

Antelope Valley College is seeking to fill four seats on its Citizens’ Oversight Committee, with the responsibility of ensuring that local bond proceeds are spent according to their intended purposes.

The 18-member committee was established after local voters in 2004 approved a $139 million bond issue to fund new labs, classrooms and related construction projects for the college district.

The committee is charged with reviewing performance and financial audits until all bond proceeds are exhausted. Members serve two-year terms, not to exceed two consecutive terms.

Open positions include a member of a senior citizens’ organization, a student representative active in a community college group, and a representative each for the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale.

Committee meetings are open to the public.

Anyone interested in serving on the Citizens’ Oversight Committee should complete and return an application to the AVC President’s Office by Sept. 1, (661) 722-6300, ext. 6301. Applications for the volunteer positions are available online at
