Citizen Oversight Committee

Citizens Oversight Committee details

Diverse representation from across Hillsborough County

The Citizen Oversight Committee will oversee the spending on school improvement projects that would be funded by the November 6 Education Referendum.

The committee, an impressive group with a longstanding commitment to the children and families of Hillsborough County, will review the spending, progress and completion of all spending related to the $131 million a year generated by the half-penny sales tax over the next decade to address essential district needs including air conditioning, aging roofs, classroom technology and safety and security improvements.

The six independent citizens are not affiliated with the district and cannot work on projects funded by the referendum.
