Local taxpayers to save $2.6 million fromrenance of Measure E Bonds
At their meeting on February 14, 2012 the Gavilan College Board of Trustees voted torenance a portion of outstanding Measure E General Obligation Bonds at much lowerinterest rates, without extending the life of the bonds. The District was able to reduce theinterest rates on Measure E bonds, which will generate a net savings in debt service totaxpayers of $2,592,801 over the life of the Refunding Bonds."We can save the taxpayers’ money by taking advantage of the historically-low interest ratesavailable right now," said President Steve Kinsella, "without extending the life of the bonds,or reducing the amount available for capital improvements funded by Measure E." TheDistrict itself will not realize any part of the savings, which the Board pursued on behalf oflocal taxpayers. Measure E was passed by local voters in March, 2004, authorizing the issuance and sale ofgeneral obligation bonds in the maximum amount of $108 million. The portion to renanceis $25 million -- the outstanding principal amount of the Series A Bonds. Measure E has beenused to provide needed upgrades to the Gavilan College campus infrastructure, technology,instructional space, and acquired property for future development.

Letter from the ChairCitizens Oversight Committee
Over the past eight years, Gavilan College has experienced a remarkablerenaissance of reconstruction and renewal for the future. Thanks to thepassage in 2004 of $108 million in Proposition 39 Measure E bonds bythe sagacious and generous foresight of the GJCCD voters, a lot has beenaccomplished. Beginning with a commendably inclusive planning processin 2003 and continuing as each building renovation was prioritized,leadership by the Gavilan administration and Board of Trustees hasincluded students, faculty, classied sta, and other community membersin the process which is now drawing to completion. Students and facultynow enjoy the air conditioning, technology, equipment and facilityimprovements in every classroom and laboratory. Excellent new parking,lighting, and infrastructure improvements have prepared Gavilan forthe next half-century of service as "the best little community college inCalifornia."The COC, or Citizens Oversight Committee, for eight years has faithfullyreviewed Quarterly Financial Reports, annual independent audits, andon-going up-dates on Measure E progress. As all reports and auditshave indicated each year, all Measure E funds have been expendedappropriately and legally only for voter-approved Measure E activities,including renovation on the Gilroy campus and land acquisition at theHollister Fairview site and the Coyote Valley site in San Jose for futureGavilan College education centers. The original Measure E prohibitionagainst any use of funds for faculty or administrative salaries has beenscrupulously observed.All interested citizens are invited to attend COC meetings. The nextscheduled meeting is September 10, 2012 in the North Lounge on theGilroy campus.
