There is a Citizens Bond Advisory Committee that is supposed to be watching the bond projects at EPISD for the taxpayers.
Attendance at the meetings is poor. These people are not doing their job.
From the June 17, 2019 meeting minutes:
You can see that almost half of the members did not attend.
District personnel pointed out to the board that some members have missed the last three meetings in a row.
In this meeting the minutes show multiple agenda items that could not be voted on because the committee did not have a quorum.
The minutes point out that the situation is so bad that the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce will not even take action to designate a board member to represent their organization.
This board is telling school district staff to go ahead without their oversight.
We deserve better
