Group monitors spending, planning for $100 million bond measure
Applications are being accepted through Monday, Feb. 24, for six positions on the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District's Parks Bond Citizen Oversight Committee.
The committee's role is to ensure the park district meets its objectives for the $100 million bond measure that voters approved in 2008 and uses the funds as planned. Members serve two-year terms and may be reappointed for two additional terms.
Formed in 2009, the 12-position committee meets four times per year, usually at 6 p.m. on Thursdays for about two hours. Members focus on delivery of the overall bond measure obligations, rather than specific projects or activities. Some choose to serve on subcommittees for projects such as preparing reports or researching into matters of interest to the committee.
Applicants must live within park district boundaries. Because of the complexities of bond implementation and the significant dollar amount associated with the measure, the district welcomes applications from professionals in real estate, finance, auditing, public budgeting, banking, general business, and law, said Bob Wayt, the district's communications director. Any district resident is eligible to apply, however.
An application may be obtained in person at the district's Administration Office at 15707 S.W. Walker Road, online at thprd.org or by calling 503-645-6433. Applicants must live within THPRD boundaries.
The THPRD board of directors will review applications and consider making initial appointments at their March 3 meeting.
