Citrus College Bond Committee Presents Report to the Community

The Citrus College Measure G Citizens Oversight Committee presented its seventh “Annual Report to Our Community” at a recent meeting of the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees. 

This annual report updates the public on the progress and status of the college’s building and facilities projects funded by the Measure G general obligation bond measure.  The $121 million bond was passed by Citrus Community College District voters in 2004.   

Bond program financials such as the Statement of Revenues, Expenditures and Change in Fund Balance, and the Bond Construction Fund balance sheet are featured in the annual report.  Highlights of the college’s major construction and renovation projects that were funded by Measure G are also presented.

“The impact of Measure G is now palpable,” stated Citizens Oversight Committee Chair Bernard D. Bollinger.  “The facilities that have been completed or are in progress will continue to play a significant role in increasing the stature of Citrus College among the nation’s community colleges.”

The report also describes the features of the new and renovated facilities, all of which enhance Citrus College’s ability to deliver high quality academic programs and student support services.

“The Citrus College community will be forever grateful to the voters for their support of Measure G,” said Dr. Geraldine M. Perri, superintendent/president of Citrus College.  “Since the bond measure passed, the work of the Citizens Oversight Committee has contributed to the rise in the college’s national, state and local status as an outstanding community college.  Their input supports the college’s mission to advance college completion, transfer, and workforce preparation by ensuring an educational environment conducive to learning.”

As required by law, the Citizens Oversight Committee consists of local residents who represent the community in monitoring Measure G fund expenditures.  The committee members, who also belong to local taxpayer, business, student, senior citizen, and other community organizations, conduct public meetings four times a year at Citrus College.

“The Citizens Oversight Committee has provided outstanding leadership in their stewardship of the college’s Measure G funds,” said Mrs. Susan M. Keith, president of the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees.  “The new buildings and renovations funded by Measure G are a visible and tangible reminder of the mutually supportive relationships Citrus College has formed with the residents of the communities we serve.”

This report and other Citizens Oversight Committee documents are available on the Citrus College website:  www.citruscollege.edu/finance/bond.
