Citizens Bond Oversight Committee Information
At their March 9, 2005 Board meeting, the Yosemite Community College District (YCCD) Board of Trustees appointed fourteen members to a Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee.

All appointments were made by the Board of Trustees, chosen from applications submitted to the District. The initial appointments will be staggered, such that one-half of the appointees will serve a one-year term, and the other half a two-year term.
