2018 Measure "G" Citizens' Oversight Committee
In November of 2018, Holtville voters approved Measure "G", a Proposition 39 general obligation bond measure placed on the ballot by the Holtville Unified School District. The text of the bond measure, as provided in election documents was as follows:
To improve the quality of education; modernize outdated classrooms, restrooms and school facilities; and construct a new gymnasium/multipurpose room for school and community use; shall Holtville Unified School District issue $10 million of bonds at legal interest rates, generating on average $617,000 annually as long as bonds are outstanding at a rate of approximately 4 cents per $100 assessed value, with annual audits, citizens’ oversight committee, NO money for salaries and all money staying local?
In accordance with State law regarding Proposition 39 bonds, the District must establish a Citizens’ Oversight Committee (COC). The purpose of the Committee is to inform the public concerning the expenditure of the bond proceeds. Community members interested in serving on the COC must submit a completed application to the District Office.
