Welcome to the website for the Measure MB Citizens' Oversight Committee. This committee was established on August 15, 2018 by the Manhattan Beach Unified School District's Board of Trustees by adoption of Resolution No. 2018-27, which includes the committee's bylaws.
COMMITTEE'S MISSION: The mission of the Measure MB Citizens' Oversight Committee is to independently review and inform the public and Board concerning the expenditure of parcel tax revenues and to ensure that such revenues are expended in accordance with the intention of the voters.
The District accepted applications from Manhattan Beach residents interested in appointment to the Measure MB Citizens' Oversight Committee through September 12, 2018. At the October 3, 2018 regular Board meeting, the Board will appoint the initial members to this committee.
On June 5, 2018, by passing Measure MB, Manhattan Beach voters authorized the Manhattan Beach Unified School District (District) to impose a special tax in the amount of $225 per parcel for six years annually. Under Resolution No. 2018-8 the District is obligated to establish a Citizens' Oversight Committee in order to satisfy the accountability requirements of Measure MB. Resolution No. 2018-27, adopted by the Board of Trustees on August 15, 2018, established the Bylaws for the Measure MB Citizens' Oversight Committee. Resolution No. 2018-27 includes the criteria used to select the applicants to be appointed to serve on this committee. Please note that employees, officials, vendors, contractors, or consultants of the District are not eligible for voting or active membership on the Committee.
Once the Board appoints the committee members on October 3, 2018 additional information will be posted to this site.
