At the end of 2015, the Marin Healthcare District Board of Directors appointed six community members to its Citizens Bond Oversight Committee. This committee monitors the use of funds from the Measure F General Obligation Bond that are being used to finance Marin General Hospital’s MGH 2.0 hospital replacement project.
During their term, committee members represent, advocate and promote the interest of District taxpayers and keep the public informed about how Measure F funds are being allocated and spent. Meetings are held quarterly for the duration of the project - approximately four years. Each committee member serves for a term of two years and does not receive compensation. Committee members are not on the Hospital, District, or Foundation Board of Directors or on any other related committee. For more information about the purpose and duties of the committee, download the Citizens Bond Oversight Committee Charter.
