A committee of concerned citizens who have met regularly for 10 years will no longer discuss how to manage the $109 million bond passed by voters in 2002.
The seven-member Measure K Oversight Committee met on Jan. 23 to present its final report, and informed Tim Hern, chief business officer and associate superintendent of Lodi Unified School District, that their work was done.
"They recommended to the district it was time to disband," said Hern.
The committee has supervised the district's plans to spend the money building two middle schools, seven elementary schools and Ronald E. McNair High School, along with other projects.
Trustees unanimously approved the move, and thanked the committee members, including chairman Gary Reiff, for their hard work.
"It helped reassure people that bond monies were spent appropriately, and were spent on what the taxpayers wanted them to be spent on," said Lodi Unified trustee Ron Heberle.
