How can we be assured Measure V funds will be spent properly?

Answer

Measure V contains critical accountability measures and annual audits that are required by law. No funds are allowed for salaries or pensions.  An independent Citizens Oversight Committee will ensure that this measure only funds projects that voters approve and that all funds remain local, benefitting only LVUSD schools. The Citizens Oversight Committee is responsible for monitoring bond finances to ensure the public that the money is being spent properly. Measure V also requires independent annual audits for the public on use of bond proceeds.
