Measure A - Citizens' Bond Oversight Committee

Measure A, which won approval on November 8, 2005 from more than 62 percent of those who voted, authorized the college to sell bonds in order to finance the repair, upgrading, construction and renovation of college facilities. Initial projects included: planning for a Rural Health Sciences Institute on the COS Yreka campus; repair and renovation of the dormitories and fire science classroom construction. As the bonds are sold over the next several years, they are expected to generate more than $31.4 million to pay for a list of projects that are expected to take about 10 years to complete. The new and upgraded facilities made possible by bond funding will also allow COS to continue its level of training and preparing students for jobs, careers and transfer to four-year universities.
